Neoadjuvant Treatment in Muscle-Invasive Bladder Cancer: From the Beginning to the Latest Developments.

Front Oncol 2022 22;12:912699. Epub 2022 Jul 22.

Department of Health Sciences, University of Florence, Florence, Italy.

Urothelial carcinoma of the bladder is one of the most prevalent cancers worldwide, diagnosed as muscle invasive in 25% of cases. Although several studies have demonstrated an overall 5% absolute survival benefit at 5 years with cisplatin-based combination neoadjuvant treatment, administration of chemotherapy prior to radical cystectomy (RC) in muscle-invasive bladder cancer (MIBC) patients is still a matter of debate. This may be due to the perceived modest survival benefit, cisplatin-based chemotherapy ineligibility, or fear of delaying potentially curative surgery in non-responders. Read More

Opioid-free anesthesia for open radical cystectomy in morbid obesity.

Rev Esp Anestesiol Reanim (Engl Ed) 2022 Jul 19. Epub 2022 Jul 19.

Servicio de Anestesiología y Reanimación, Hospital Universitario Virgen de la Victoria, Málaga, Spain; Instituto de Investigación Biomédica de Málaga, Málaga, Spain; Departamento de Pediatría y Farmacología, Universidad de Málaga, Málaga, Spain.

Opioid-free anaesthesia shows evidence about its efectivity and security, even though its risks and benefits are not well defined. Neither are the patient profile or sort of surgery where it could be superior to the conventional opioid-based anaesthetic technique. Aggressive and/or long-lasting surgeries set out several queries on this technique regarding sudden hemodynamic changes, as it does not produce sympatholysis through μ receptor and there is modest experience in this technique.
