EAU Congress Annual Meeting Coverage
In a large study, tamsulosin use was not associated with a significant improvement in spontaneous stone passage rates compared with placebo among patients with acute ureteric colic.
Study identifies which PCa patients with positive lymph nodes may have improved survival with the addition of adjuvant radiotherapy to androgen-deprivation therapy.
Researchers concluded that a greater than 90-day interval from prostate biopsy to radical prostatectomy increases the risk of biochemical recurrence among men with Gleason 3+4 disease.
Study documents a drop in the incidence of de novo metastatic PCa from 1980 to 2011 in the United States.
Use of 5-alpha-reductase inhibitors before and after diagnosis of the malignancy is associated with a 15% and 22% decreased risk of bladder cancer mortality, respectively.
In a large international trial, pre-biopsy MRI scans spared 28% of men from having to undergo a biopsy and resulted in a lower detection of clinically insignificant cancers vs standard biopsy.
Patients with longer hospital stays and pre-discharge complications were at increased risk of readmission within 30 days of discharge.
In a study, the 5-year risk of recurrence was 4.8%, 18.1%, and 46.3% for patients with low-, intermediate-, and high-risk disease.
Study finds no difference in metastasis-free survival observed after 15 years compared with radiation therapy or radical prostatectomy.
The 5-year disease-free and cancer-specific survival rates were 94.7% and 100%, respectively.
In a small study, the treatment was associated with a 4-fold increase in average ejaculation time.
Study shows it can provide durable oncologic control with a low risk of tumor recurrence.
Researchers observe benefit in prostate cancer patients with 2 or more adverse pathologic features.
Pelvic lymph node dissection in high-risk patients is 2.5 times more likely in those undergoing open rather than robotic-assisted surgery.
Men with non-palpable tumors had a 46% lower risk of positive surgical margins.
Parenteral testosterone undecanoate over 5 years found to decrease waist circumference and improve components of metabolic syndrome.
Alpha blockers and 5-alpha reductase inhibitors increase the risk of ejaculatory dysfunction, a systematic review and meta-analysis shows.
Risk is not eliminated if patients have risk factors for chronic kidney disease, such as hypertension and diabetes.
Patients are more than 9 times more likely to die from causes other than PCa, a new study shows.
It is associated with a 34.7% decrease in biochemical recurrence after radical prostatectomy versus patients with blood type A.
