INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVE:The effect of age on cancer-specific mortality (CSM) is always tested in specific subgroup of patient with T1a non metastatic renal cell carcinoma (nmRCC). We tested the ...

BACKGROUND: We assessed patients and tumor characteristics, as well as health-related quality of life (HRQoL) items, associated with curative intent treatment decision-making in clinically localized prostate cancer (PCa) patients. METHODS: Clinically localized PCa treated with either radical prostatectomy (RP) or radiation therapy (RT) within 12 months from diagnosis were abstracted from The PROState cancer monitoring in ITaly, from the National Research Council (Pros-IT CNR) database. Multivari...

Abstract Background Marital status rates may have changed over time in prostate cancer (PC) patients and may have affected cancer-specific mortality (CSM) and other-cause mortality (OCM). Methods Within the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results database (2004–2015), we identified PC patients who were either married (n = 326,664) or unmarried (n = 106,533). Temporal trends, cumulative incidence plots, as well as multivariable competing risks regression analyses focused on (1) the overall po...

In the last two decades, the risk profile of patients treated with radical prostatectomy (RP) shifted away from the most favorable disease towards intermediate and high-risk diseases (1). These patients are at increased risk of recurrence and prostate cancer (PCa) mortality (2,3). From this perspective, the development of novel multimodality strategies to improve outcomes of surgically-treated PCa patients are needed.

OBJECTIVE: To analyze the outcomes of partial nephrectomy (PN) and radical nephrectomy (RN) in octogenarian patients. METHODS: The RESURGE (REnal SUrgery in the Eldely) multi-institutional database was queried to identify patients ≥80 years old who had undergone a PN or RN for a renal tumor. Multivariable binary logistic regression estimated the association between type of surgery and occurrence of complications. Multivariable Cox regression model assessed the association between type of surgery...

Abstract Objective To show how to perform a robot-assisted partial nephrectomy and bilateral pyelolithotomy in ectopic pelvic kidneys. This is a congenital abnormality of position and rotation 1 frequently associated with urolithiasis. 2 Renal cell carcinoma is a very rare event in pelvic kidneys. 3 , 4 These 2 findings in the same patient could be a surgical challenge and whenever possible a “one stage” treatment is preferred. Materials and Methods A 44-year-old male with bilateral pelvic kidne...

BACKGROUND: The debate on the pros and cons of robot-assisted partial nephrectomy performed with (on-clamp) or without (off-clamp) renal artery clamping is ongoing. The aim of this meta-analysis is to summarize the available evidence on the comparative studies assessing the outcomes of these two approaches. MATERIAL AND METHODS: A systematic review of the literature on PubMed, ScienceDirect®, and Embase® was conducted according to the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-ana...

BACKGROUND/AIM: Clear cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC) shows variable chromosomal abnormalities. The aim of this study was to assess the prognostic role of ccRCC chromosomal abnormalities in a single-center cohort with an extended follow-up. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A systematic cytogenetic analysis was performed in 283 consecutive surgically-treated patients for renal masses between 1997 and 2002. Kaplan-Meier and multivariable Cox regression (MCR) models were used to calculate cancer specific s...
