Abstract null null Background null Literature lacks clear evidence regarding the optimal treatment for non–muscle-invasive micropapillary bladder cancer (MPBC) due to its rarity and the presence of only small sample size and single-centre studies. null null null Objective null To assess cancer-specific mortality (CSM) and overall mortality (OM) between immediate radical cystectomy (RC) and conservative management among T1 high-grade (HG) MPBC. null null null Design, setting, and participants nul...

Abstract Background Prostatic artery embolisation (PAE) for the treatment of lower urinary tract symptoms secondary to benign prostatic obstruction (LUTS/BPO) still remains under investigation. Objective To compare the efficacy and safety of PAE and transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) in the treatment of LUTS/BPO at 2 yr of follow-up. Design, setting, and participants A randomised, open-label trial was conducted. There were 103 participants aged ≥40 yr with refractory LUTS/BPO. Interv...

Adjuvant chemotherapy (ACT) is recommended for non-organ-confined bladder cancer (BCa) after radical cystectomy (RC) and pelvic lymph node dissection (PLND), but there are sparse data regarding its specific efficacy in patients with histological variants. The aim of our study was to evaluate the role of ACT on survival outcomes in patients with variant histology in a large multicenter cohort. We retrospectively evaluated data of 3963 patients with BCa treated with RC and bilateral PLND with cura...

Introduction: The most common cause of acute renal colic is a ureteral obstruction caused by ureterolithiasis. Urgent intervention is often necessary due to intractable pain. Early extracorporeal s...

INTRODUCTION Radical cystectomy (RC) with bilateral pelvic lymph node dissection (PLND) is a complex surgical procedure, associated with substantial perioperative complications. Previous studies suggested reserving it to high-volume centers in order to improve oncological and perioperative outcomes. However, only limited data exist regarding low-volume centers with highly experienced surgeons. We aimed to assess oncological and perioperative outcomes after RC performed by experienced surgeons in...

Abstract Background Correct identification of variant histologies (VHs) of bladder cancer (BCa) at transurethral resection of the bladder (TURB) could drive the subsequent treatment. Objective To evaluate the concordance in detecting VHs between TURB and radical cystectomy (RC) specimens in BCa patients. Design, setting, and participants We retrospectively analyzed 1881 BCa patients who underwent TURB and subsequent RC at seven tertiary care centers between 1980 and 2018. VHs were classified as ...

PURPOSE To investigate the impact of preoperative nutritional factors [body mass index (BMI)], hypoalbuminemia (< 3.5 g/dL, sarcopenia) on complication and mortality rates after radical cystectomy (RC) for bladder cancer. METHODS The PubMed database was systematically searched for studies investigating the effect of nutritional status on postoperative outcomes after RC. English-language articles published between March 2010 and March 2020 were reviewed. For statistical analyses odds ratios (ORs)...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the trends in risk-group distribution and Pentafecta outcomes in patients treated with nerve-sparing (NS), robot-assisted radical prostatectomy (RARP) in a single low-intermediate volume prostate cancer (PCa) center over a 10-year period. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We queried a prospectively maintained database for patients who underwent NS RARP between 2009 and 2018 in a low-intermediate volume PCa center. Risk-groups were defined according to the D'Amico classification. Pentaf...
