BACKGROUND This study analyzes patient health-related quality of life (QoL) 24-month after prostate cancer (PCa) diagnosis within the PROState cancer monitoring in ITaly from the National Research Council (Pros-IT CNR) study. METHODS Pros-IT CNR is an ongoing, longitudinal and observational study, considering a convenience sample of patients enrolled at PCa diagnosis and followed at 6, 12, 24, 36, 48 and 60 months from the diagnosis. Patients were grouped according to the treatment received: ner...

Abstract Background Partial nephrectomy (PN) in elderly patients is underutilized with concerns regarding risk of complications and potential for poor outcomes. Objective To evaluate quality and functional outcomes of PN in patients >75 yr using trifecta as a composite outcome of surgical quality. Design, setting, and participants Multicenter retrospective analysis of 653 patients aged >75 yr who underwent PN (REnal SURGery in Elderly [RESURGE] Group). Intervention PN. Outcome measurements and s...

Abstract Background A recent multi-center study showed how estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) and cancer specific mortality (CSM) are linearly and inversely related in organ-confined renal carcinoma (RCC), whenever the eGFR decreases below specific thresholds. We addressed our previous work limitations related to heterogeneity and missing data, and to explore the relationship between eGFR and CSM also in locally advanced RCC. Materials and methods All RCC patients treated with either pa...

Abstract Background Cytoreductive nephrectomy (CN) plays an important role in the treatment of a subgroup of metastatic renal cell carcinoma (mRCC) patients. Objective We aimed to evaluate morbidity associated with this procedure and identify potential predictors thereof to aid patient selection for this procedure and potentially improve patient outcomes. Design, setting, and participants Data from 736 mRCC patients undergoing CN at 14 institutions were retrospectively recorded in the Registry f...

Etoposide, doxorubicin and cisplatin plus oral mitotane (EDP-M) comprise the reference regimen in the management of patients with adrenocortical carcinoma (ACC). In this paper, we described the outcome of 58 patients with advanced/metastatic ACC consecutively treated with EDP-M in a reference center for this rare disease in Italy. In this series, EDP-M obtained a partial response in 50% of patients; median progression free survival (PFS) and overall survival were 10.1 months (95% Confidence Inte...

INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVE:Five-year other cause mortality (OCM) after nephrectomy for non-metastatic renal cell carcinoma (nmRCC) should be marginal in properly selected surgical candidates. We ex...
