OBJECTIVE To evaluate the survival outcomes of patients with local recurrence after radical nephrectomy (RN) and to test the effect of surgery, as monotherapy or in combination with systemic treatment, on cancer-specific mortality (CSM). METHODS Patients with local recurrence after RN were abstracted from an international dataset. The primary outcome was CSM. Cox's proportional hazard models tested the main predictors of CSM. Kaplan-Meier method estimates the 3-year survival rates. RESULTS Overa...

OBJECTIVES To perform a systematic review and meta-analysis aiming to improve the level of evidence and determine the efficacy and safety of low-intensity shockwave therapy (LiST) in patients with chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CP/CPPS). METHODS We searched PubMed, Cochrane Library and Scopus databases from inception to November 2020 for randomized controlled trials (RCTs) exploring the role of LiST for the management of CP/CPPS. We performed a random effects meta-analysis of ...

Abstract Background In women with end-stage renal disease (ESRD), female sexual dysfunction (SD) remains underestimated. Aim To explore the prevalence, correlates, diagnostic approach and treatment modalities of sexual symptoms in females with ESRD. Methods We performed a systematic review and meta-analysis to estimate both the prevalence of SD and the pooled Female Sexual Function Index (FSFI) scores in ESRD females. Similarly, for studies reporting the FSFI score before and after renal transpl...

BACKGROUND Renal Cell Carcinomas are notorious for asynchronous metastases, atypical metastatic sites and late relapses even decades after nephrectomy. It is quite rare though for RCCs to present as metastatic, solitary and symptomatic bone lesions. Even more uncommon is a solitary bone metastasis much larger that the primary tumour caused by a low risk primary T1a RCC which would have otherwise been eligible for active surveillance. CASE PRESENTATION An otherwise healthy 68-year-old female was ...

Purpose Prostate cancer (PCa) is the commonest non-cutaneous malignancy worldwide and the second cause of cancer death among males in the USA. Approval of the new androgen receptor axis-targeted (ARAT) agents (abiraterone acetate, enzalutamide, apalutamide, and darolutamide) has altered the course of advanced PCa. We aimed to assess the endocrine and metabolic adverse events associated with treatment using ARAT compounds. Methods We searched the PubMed, Cochrane Library, and Scopus databases fro...

PURPOSE Micro-ultrasound is a novel, high-resolution, ultrasound technology, aiming to improve prostate imaging and, consequently, the diagnostic accuracy of ultrasound-guided prostate biopsy (PB). Micro-ultrasound-guided PB may present comparable detection rates to, the standard of care, multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging (mpMRI)-targeted PB for the diagnosis of clinically significant prostate cancer (PCa). We aimed to compare the detection rate of micro-ultrasound versus mpMRI-targeted...

Importance Combining 2 first-line treatments for erectile dysfunction (ED) or initiating other modalities in addition to a first-line therapy may produce beneficial outcomes. Objective To assess whether different ED combination therapies were associated with improved outcomes compared with first-line ED monotherapy in various subgroups of patients with ED. Data Sources Studies were identified through a systematic search in MEDLINE, Cochrane Library, and Scopus from inception of these databases t...
