Aging Male 2019 Nov 14:1-8. Epub 2019 Nov 14.

Department of Urology, Konkuk University Medical Center, Konkuk University School, of Medicine, Seoul, Korea.

This study aimed to investigate the effect of androgen suppression therapy (AST), comprising a 5-α reductase inhibitor (5-ARi) and androgen deprivation therapy (ADT), on the risk of bladder cancer incidence, recurrence, and mortality. We used the PRISMA statement to report the methods and results of this meta-analysis. Bladder cancer incidence, recurrence, and mortality after 5-ARi treatment and ADT were assessed using risk ratios (RRs) and hazard ratios (HRs) with 95% confidence intervals (CIs). Read More

Department of Urology, University of Health Sciences, Fatih Sultan Mehmet Research and Training Hospital , Istanbul , Turkey.

The management of chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CPPS) is controversial because of the unclear pathogenesis of this disease. In one theory, prostatitis has been proposed to be associated with pelvic venous diseases such as varicocele and hemorrhoids, dilatation of the Santorini plexus. In this study, we investigated the effect of micronized flavonoid fraction (an agent used in venous insufficiency) in the treatment of type III CPPS. Read More
