Therapeutic strategies for prostate cancer (PCa) have been evolving dramatically worldwide. The current article reports on the evolution of surgical management strategies for PCa in Italy. The data from two independent Italian multicenter projects, the MIRROR-SIU/LUNA (started in 2007, holding data of 890 patients) and the Pros-IT-CNR project (started in 2014, with data of 692 patients), were compared. Differences in patients’ characteristics were evaluated. Multivariable logistic regression mod...

Diagnosis of anterior prostate cancer (PCa) can be quite challenging, often leading to delay in treatment. mpMRI-guided biopsy (GB) has been introduced aiming to increase the number of diagnoses of clinically significant PCa with fewer cores. The aim of our study is to compare pathological findings of prostate biopsy, In-bore or Fusion technique, with histopathological evaluation of radical prostatectomy. We prospectively collected data from 90 consecutive patients who underwent either In-bore o...

Abstract Background No data are available regarding the impact of time between a previous transrectal prostate biopsy (PB) and holmium laser enucleation of the prostate (HoLEP) on perioperative outcomes. Objective To evaluate the impact of time from PB to HoLEP on perioperative outcomes. Design, setting, and participants A total of 172 consecutive patients treated with HoLEP within 12 mo of a single previous transrectal PB at two tertiary centers were included. Outcome measurements and statistic...

BACKGROUND The aim of the present study is to evaluate the difference in terms of feasibility and detection rate of two magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) guided biopsy approaches (MRI fusion versus "in-bore" MRI) in a single tertiary centre. METHODS We retrospectively identified 297 patients with suspected prostate cancer who underwent MRI based target prostate biopsy (FUSION or "in-bore" approaches) between January 2016 and January 2018 in a single tertiary centre. RESULTS Lesion site (periphera...

OBJECTIVE To provide an updated systematic review of randomized control trials (RCTs) to investigate the clinical and microbiological efficacy of nitrofurantoin compared to other antibiotics or placebo for treatment of uncomplicated urinary tract infections (uUTI). A secondary aim is to assess whether nitrofurantoin use is associated with increased side effects compared to other treatment regimens. SUMMARY The review was performed according to PRISMA guidelines. We searched 4 databases for artic...

BACKGROUND Bladder cancer is the ninth most common type of cancer worldwide. In the past, radical cystectomy via open surgery has been considered the gold-standard treatment for muscle invasive bladder cancer. However, in recent years there has been a progressive increase in the use of robot-assisted laparoscopic radical cystectomy. The aim of the current project is to investigate the surgical, oncological, and functional outcomes of patients with bladder cancer who undergo radical cystectomy co...

OBJECTIVE: Italy is facing the COVID-19 outbreak with an abrupt reorganization of its national health-system, in order to augment care provision to symptomatic patients. The sudden shift of personnel and resources towards COVID-19 care has led to the reduction of surgery, with possible severe drawbacks. The aim of the study is to describe the trend in surgical volume in urology, in Italy. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Thirty-three urological units with physicians affiliated to the AGILE consortium were...
