Abstract Background Open radical cystectomy (ORC) has proven to be an important component in the treatment of high-risk bladder cancer (BCa). ORC surgical morbidity remains high; therefore, minimally invasive surgical techniques have been introduced in an attempt to improve patient outcomes. Objective To compare cancer outcomes in BCa patients managed with ORC or robotic-assisted radical cystectomy (RARC). Design, setting, and participants A prospective, randomized trial was completed between 20...

Abstract Purpose The safety and feasibility of active surveillance in comorbid patients with renal masses ≥4.0 cm is uncertain. The aim of this study is to describe our institutional experience with the observation of large renal masses. Materials and methods One hundred patients were identified with renal masses ≥ 4.0 cm that were followed on observation for at least 6 months without surgical intervention between 1994 and 2016. Linear regression was conducted to determine predictors for renal m...

Purpose: Active surveillance is the preferred management of low risk prostate cancer. Cancer specific anxiety during active surveillance remains under studied. We evaluated long-term anxiety in men on active surveillance to determine whether interventions must be tailored to improve adherence.Materials and Methods: A total of 413 men enrolled in active surveillance at a single tertiary care center completed quality of life surveys as part of routine care. A modified version of the MAX-PC (Memori...

Rapid advances in diagnostic imaging have been developed in parallel with the changes in the contemporary management of prostate cancer. Increasingly, clinical management and decision making in prostate cancer are influenced by technologies such as magnetic resonance imaging-targeted prostate biopsies for men with elevated PSA, imaging for active surveillance, and nuclear medicine studies for men with advanced or recurrent prostate cancer. Furthermore, novel imaging techniques have been develope...
