Technologies for image-guided surgery for managing lymphatic metastases in prostate cancer.

Nat Rev Urol 2019 Jan 15. Epub 2019 Jan 15.

Martini Klinik, University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf, Hamburg, Germany.

One of the challenges for the surgical management of prostate cancer is the lymphatic spread of metastases. Lymph node metastases vary in size (micrometastases (<2 mm) or macrometastases (>2 mm)), and their interactions with the lymphatic environment differ (whether they are hypoxic or connected to blood flow). Thus, devising a universal imaging system and an image-guided surgical approach that supports the resection of all affected lymph nodes is difficult. Read More

Urol Oncol 2019 Mar 19;37(3):219-226. Epub 2018 Dec 19.

The Smith Institute for Urology, Zucker School of Medicine Hofstra/Northwell, New Hyde Park, NY. Electronic address:

Lymph node dissection is part of the standard treatment protocol for various cancers, but its role in prostate cancer has been debatable for some time. Pelvic lymphadenectomy has been shown to better help stage prostate cancer patients, but has yet to be definitively proven to be of any benefit for survival. Various templates for lymph node dissections exist, and though some national guidelines have endorsed an extended pelvic node dissection, the choice of template is still controversial. Read More

Benefits of Elective Para-Aortic Radiotherapy for pN1 Prostate Cancer Using Arc Therapy (Intensity-Modulated or Volumetric Modulated Arc Therapy): Protocol for a Nonrandomized Phase II Trial.

JMIR Res Protoc 2018 Dec 13;7(12):e11256. Epub 2018 Dec 13.

Department of Radiation Oncology, University Hospitals Leuven, University of Leuven, Leuven, Belgium.

Background: In patients with prostate cancer (PCa) with histopathologically proven pelvic lymph node (LN) metastasis (pN1) after extended pelvic lymph node dissection (ePLND), multimodality treatment consisting of treatment of the primary tumor and whole pelvic radiotherapy (WPRT) combined with androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) offers promising results, leading to better cause-specific survival rates compared with ADT alone. However, in case more than one pelvic LN is invaded by the tumor, approximately 40% of the patients relapse biochemically and clinically. Clinical relapse is present in the para-aortic LNs (M1a disease) in up to 77% of the relapsing cases. Read More

The expression profile of p14, p53 and p21 in tumour cells is associated with disease-specific survival and the outcome of postoperative chemotherapy treatment in muscle-invasive bladder cancer.

Urol Oncol 2018 12 24;36(12):530.e7-530.e18. Epub 2018 Oct 24.

Department of Pathology and Department of Clinical and Experimental Medicine, Medical Faculty, Linköping University, SE 581 85, Linköping, Sweden.

Purpose: We investigated the effects of alterations in the biological markers p14, p53, p21, and p16 in relation to tumour cell proliferation, T-category, N- category, lymphovascular invasion, and the ability to predict prognosis in patients with muscle-invasive bladder cancer (MIBC) treated with cystectomy and, if applicable, chemotherapy.

Materials And Methods: We prospectively studied patients with urinary bladder cancer pathological stage pT1 to pT4 treated with cystectomy, pelvic lymph node dissection and postoperative chemotherapy. Tissue microarrays from paraffin-embedded cystectomy tumour samples were examined for expression of immunostaining of p14, p53, p21, p16 and Ki-67 in relation to other clinical and pathological factors as well as cancer-specific survival.
