Case report: A case of neoadjuvant immunotherapy in combination with the Yang-Monti technique for the treatment of ureteral carcinoma after radical cystectomy and left radical nephroureterectomy.

Front Oncol 2022 28;12:889028. Epub 2022 Jul 28.

Department of Urology, Ningbo Medical Treatment Centre Li Huili Hospital, Ningbo, China.

Recurrence of urothelial carcinoma in a patient with solitary kidney is always a clinical challenge. In the immune checkpoint inhibitor era, neoadjuvant immunotherapy in combination with the Yang-Monti technique might be a good option for the patient with a high-risk tumor when kidney-sparing surgery for renal function preservation is desired. We report the case of a 74-year-old man with solitary kidney who was diagnosed with recurrence of urothelial carcinoma in the right ureter. Read More

Impact of an inpatient advanced practice provider on hospital length of stay after major urologic oncology procedures.

Urol Oncol 2022 Jul 25. Epub 2022 Jul 25.

Penn State Health Milton S. Hershey Medical Center,  Hershey, PA. Electronic address:

Introduction: Although timely hospital discharge is a complex and multifactorial process, this metric is consistently a focus for hospitals and health care systems. It also has been a long practice that the American Urological Association (AUA) supports the use of advanced practice providers (APPs) as an integral member of the urological care team.

Materials And Methods: Here, we performed a preliminary evaluation of the effectiveness of an inpatient APP in reducing hospital length of stay (LOS) following major urologic oncology procedures. Read More

Arterial to end-tidal CO gradients during isocapnic hyperventilation.

J Clin Monit Comput 2022 Jul 27. Epub 2022 Jul 27.

Department of Anesthesiology, OLV Hospital, Aalst, Belgium.

Isocapnic hyperventilation (ICHV) is occasionally used to maintain the end-expired CO partial pressure (PCO) when the inspired CO (PCO) rises. Whether maintaining PCO with ICHV during an increase of the PCO also maintains arterial PCO (PCO) remains poorly documented. 12 ASA PS I-II subjects undergoing a robot-assisted radical prostatectomy (RARP) (n = 11) or cystectomy (n = 1) under general endotracheal anesthesia with sevoflurane in O/air (40% inspired O) were enrolled.

Urol Oncol 2022 Jul 7. Epub 2022 Jul 7.

Department of Genitourinary Oncology, H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center and Research Institute, Tampa, FL; Department of Health Outcomes and Behavior, H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center and Research Institute, Tampa, FL.

Purpose: Because the optimal number of cycles of neoadjuvant gemcitabine and cisplatin chemotherapy (GC) is unclear, we aimed to compare disease response and survival outcomes of patients receiving either 3 or 4 cycles of neoadjuvant GC for muscle-invasive bladder cancer (MIBC).

Methods: A total of 166 patients who were treated with neoadjuvant GC and radical cystectomy for clinical stage T2-4N0M0 were identified. Response and effectiveness of different cycle counts were assessed using downstaging (complete pathologic and partial pathologic response), cancer-specific survival (CSS), and overall survival (OS).

Asian J Endosc Surg 2022 Jul 2. Epub 2022 Jul 2.

Department of Surgery, Saitama Medical Center, Jichi Medical University, Saitamashi, Japan.

Parastomal hernia (PH) is a common complication of ileal conduit diversions. The Sugarbaker technique has a lower recurrence rate than the keyhole (KH) technique and is typically preferred. However, it may not be feasible in some cases because of anatomical features including the length of the conduit and torsion of the ureter. Read More

Laparoscopic Treatment Strategies for Liver Echinococcosis.

Infect Dis Ther 2022 Aug 25;11(4):1415-1426. Epub 2022 Jun 25.

Department of General Surgery, The General Hospital of Western Theater command, Chengdu, 610083, People's Republic of China.

Liver echinococcosis is clinically mainly composed of hepatic cystic echinococcosis (CE) and hepatic alveolar echinococcosis (AE). At present, laparoscopy has been comprehensively applied in the treatment of two types of liver echinococcosis. For hepatic CE treatment, both laparoscopic total pericystectomy and laparoscopic hepatectomy can achieve radical results, but the former is considered the first choice owing to its being more minimally invasive; laparoscopic subtotal pericystectomy and laparoscopic partial pericystectomy can be accepted as complementary options, considering the presence of complicated cysts and the level of laparoscopic technique in remote hospitals; laparoscopic cystectomy is simple, but it is not currently recommended for treatment of hepatic CE owing to poor efficacy and high risk of postoperative complications.

Autologous regeneration of blood vessels in urinary bladder matrices provides early perfusion after transplant to the bladder.

J Tissue Eng Regen Med 2022 Aug 14;16(8):718-731. Epub 2022 May 14.

Department of Urologic Surgery, University of California Davis School of Medicine, Sacramento, California, USA.

Large animal testing and clinical trials using bioengineered bladder for augmentation have revealed that large grafts fail due to insufficient blood supply. To address this critical issue, an in vivo staged implant strategy was developed and evaluated to create autologous, vascularized bioengineered bladder tissue with potential for clinical translation. Pig bladders were used to create acellular urinary bladder matrices (UBMs), which were implanted on the rectus abdominus muscles of rats and pigs to generate cellular and vascular grafts. Read More
