Kidney Cancer Research Network of Canada consensus statement on the role of adjuvant therapy after nephrectomy for high-risk, non-metastatic renal cell carcinoma: A comprehensive analysis of the literature and meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials.

Can Urol Assoc J 2018 Jun;12(6):173-180

Cancer Prognostics and Health Outcomes Unit, University of Montreal Health Centre, Montreal, QC, Canada.

Introduction: The Kidney Cancer Research Network of Canada (KCRNC) collaborated to prepare this consensus statement about the use of target agents as adjuvant therapy in patients with non-metastatic renal cell carcinoma (nmRCC) after nephrectomy. We reviewed the published data and performed a meta-analysis of studies that focused on vascular endothelial growth factor receptor (VEGFR) tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs).

Methods: A systematic literature search identified seven trials on adjuvant target therapy in nmRCC. Read More

Symptom assessment to guide treatment selection and determine progression in metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer: Expert opinion and review of the evidence.

Can Urol Assoc J 2018 May 14. Epub 2018 May 14.

Department of Surgery (Urology) and Oncology, McMaster University, Hamilton, ON; Canada.

Multiple new agents to treat metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC) have become available in recent years; however, the appropriate timing and sequencing of these agents have yet to be elucidated. Until accurate biomarkers become available to allow more focused therapeutic targeting for this population, treatment selection for men with mCRPC will continue to be driven largely by close assessment of patient-related factors and symptoms. Pain, as the predominant symptom of mCRPC, is often the focus when assessing progression and the need for a change in treatment. Read More

Istanbul Medeniyet University, Faculty of Medicine, Department of Pediatric Urology; Istanbul, Turkey.

Introduction: We sought to report the outcomes of transperitoneal laparoscopic heminephroureterectomy (LHNU) in pediatric population and to describe the technical details of this minimally invasive surgery.

Methods: Seventeen pediatric patients (18 renal units), who had consecutive transperitoneal LHNU in our department between January 2012 and July 2017 were included in the study. In all patients, diagnostic cystoscopy and retrograde pyelography were carried out immediately before the operation. Read More

Introduction: We aimed to investigate patient and disease variables associated with gynecological organ invasion in females with bladder cancer at the time of robot-assisted radical cystectomy (RARC).

Methods: We conducted a retrospective review of female patients who underwent robot-assisted anterior pelvic exenteration (RAAE) between 2005 and 2016. Patients were divided into two groups: those with gynecological organ involvement at RAAE and those without. Read More

Methods: An online survey was administered to Endourological Society members. Respondents' MET usage, index case management, and awareness of recent guidelines and literature were compared based on international status, practice setting, interval since training, and endourological fellowship training.

How long do we have to treat overactive bladder syndrome (OAB)? A questionnaire survey of Canadian urologists and gynecologists.

Can Urol Assoc J 2018 May 14. Epub 2018 May 14.

Department of Urology, Jewish General Hospital, McGill University.

Introduction: Overactive bladder syndrome (OAB) is a highly prevalent and costly condition worldwide with negative impact on health-related quality of life. Although many guidelines exist and anticholinergics are considered to be the mainstay of pharmacological treatment, data are lacking regarding optimal treatment duration. Therefore, the aim of this study was to determine practice patterns of Canadian urologists and gynecologists regarding duration of OAB pharmacotherapy. Read More

Transitioning patients with hypospadias and other penile abnormalities to adulthood: What to expect?

Can Urol Assoc J 2018 Apr;12(4 Suppl 1):S27-S33

Department of Surgery, Division of Urology, McMaster University, Hamilton, ON; Canada.

Hypospadias patients presenting to adult urologists do so with a wide range of symptoms and problems, including urethral stricture (45-72%), lower urinary tract symptoms (with or without stricture) (50-82%), urethrocutaneous fistula (16-30%), persisting hypospadias (14-43%), micturition spraying (24%), ventral curvature (14-24%), urinary tract infection (15-25%), or lichen sclerosus (13%; range 8-43). Many of these men have concurrent complications as the result of multiple operations and a variety of techniques. Patients with childhood repairs performed by a pediatric urologist are often lost to followup during adolescence and will reemerge in adulthood after what appeared to be a successful pediatric single-stage repair, stressing the need for long-term followup and transitional care.
