OBJECTIVES: A rising number of patients with cancer are older adults (65 years of age and older), and this proportion will increase to 70% by the year 2020. Falls are a common condition in older adults. We sought to assess the prevalence and risk factors for falls in older patients with cancer. METHODS: This is a single-site, retrospective cohort study. Patients who were receiving cancer care underwent a comprehensive geriatric assessments, including cognitive, functional, nutritional, physical, falls in the prior 6 months and comorbidity assessment...

Each developed country faces an aging population. Increase of age rises the risk to develop urologic pathology especially in men. Routine investigation and diagnostic of urologic pathology important, however must take into account the patient in his globality (including age, comorbidities, drug medication as well as sociocultural environment). The aim of this article is to help the general practitioner in taking decisions with frequent uro-geriatric symptoms. Bladder catheterization remains an invasive treatment and indication should be regularly re-evaluated...

Urology will benefit by demographic change more than other disciplines in the next 10 years. Both number of patients and their intensity of treatment will increase. This implies the need of a reorientation of urology away from oncologic topics towards geriatric urology. Relevant issues are functional disorders of the lower urinary tract, infectiology, hematuria, and benign prostate hyperplasia. The legislature of North Rhine-Westphalia has already made the first step towards geriatric urology by the foundation of the ISAR screening for each geriatric patient outside geriatrics, which constitutes the possibility of beginning an early interdisciplinary dialogue...

INTRODUCTION: Urinary tract infection is the most common healthcare-association infection, especially because of urinary catheter. We evaluated our practices concerning catheter insertion and management in our institution. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We conducted a single-centre descriptive cross-sectional study during 1 week in September 2014 in all adult departments. We noted prevalence, indications, length, management of urinary catheter (UC) and symptomatic catheter-associated urinary tract infections (SCAUTI)...

CONTEXT: Prostate cancer is the most frequent male cancer. Since the median age of diagnosis is 66 yr, many patients require both geriatric and urologic evaluation if treatment is to be tailored to individual circumstances including comorbidities and frailty. OBJECTIVE: To update the 2014 International Society of Geriatric Oncology (SIOG) guidelines on prostate cancer in men aged >70 yr. The update includes new material on health status evaluation and the treatment of localised, advanced, and castrate-resistant disease...

PURPOSE: Frailty and functional status have emerged as significant predictors of morbidity and mortality for patients undergoing cancer surgery. To articulate the impact on value (ie quality per cost), we compared perioperative outcomes and expenditures according to patient function for older adults undergoing kidney cancer surgery. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Using linked SEER (Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results)-Medicare data, we identified 19,129 elderly patients with kidney cancer treated with nonablative surgery from 2000 to 2009...

BACKGROUND: Accurate detection of symptoms is essential in palliative care. Identification of clustering of symptom is valuable to develop target interventions. This area is largely understudied in older palliative cancer patients. OBJECTIVES: To identify symptom clustering in older palliative cancer patients, and patient groups based on the clustering of symptoms, and to evaluate the difference in functional dependence and experiencing life as not meaningful between the identified patient groups...

F Hanke, M Plum, A Wiedemann
In Germany, too, adverse drug events (ADEs) have been identified as a central problem in the care of geriatric patients. Especially in elderly patients with multimorbidity and increasing frailty, ADEs are among the most frequent and cost-intensive causes of illness in healthcare. In most cases, they are due to drug-related diseases, which necessitate enhanced risk awareness and improved cooperation between physicians, medical specialists, geriatric nurses and pharmacists. In this context, the use of urologic medication for geriatric patients requires particular attention by the consultant...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Bladder cancer is an age-related cancer and because of aging population, an increase of patients with muscle-invasive bladder cancer (MIBC) seems inevitable. Decisions regarding the treatment of geriatric patients with MIBC are complex and require a multidisciplinary approach. RECENT FINDINGS: In addition to a specific urological oncology evaluation, a general geriatric evaluation is of great importance for all geriatric patients with MIBC. Standard of care in appropriate geriatric MIBC patients is radical cystectomy with urinary diversion and neoadjuvant platinum-based combination chemotherapy...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: The US healthcare system is undergoing fundamental changes in an effort to improve access to care, curtail healthcare spending, and improve quality of care. These efforts largely focused on Medicare, and therefore, will have a fundamental impact on the care of geriatric patients. This article reviews contemporary health policy issues, with a focus on how these issues may impact the care of geriatric urology patients. RECENT FINDINGS: The Affordable Care Act has broadened the scope of Medicare coverage...

INTRODUCTION: The super-elderly population is a small but expanding group of patients who will pose a significant challenge to future healthcare resources. A snapshot audit was completed of all emergency and elective urological nonagenarian activity in a UK general hospital, including surgical outcomes in this group of patients. METHODS: Prospective and retrospective databases and clinical records were examined to identify all patients aged 90-99 years who had patient episodes between January 2006 and August 2012...

REVIEW
I Füsgen, A Wiedemann
Chronic constipation, faecal and urinary incontinence are a geriatric syndrome. Chronic constipation is particularly important for the field of urology as it may be considered to trigger urological incontinence problems. Both chronic constipation and urinary incontinence are age-dependent symptoms, which are associated with a significant impact on quality of life. Chronic constipation must be taken into consideration during the diagnostic work-up and treatment of urinary incontinence.
