Salvage high-dose-rate interstitial brachytherapy for perineal recurrence of prostate cancer after surgery and radiotherapy: a case report.

J Contemp Brachytherapy 2020 Oct 30;12(5):492-496. Epub 2020 Oct 30.

Department of Radiotherapy, IEO European Institute of Oncology IRCCS, Milan, Italy.

Perineal seeding of tumor cells from prostate cancer (PCa) is very rare, and no standard treatment exists for this atypical presentation with no evidence of distant metastases. Local excision or external beam radiotherapy are used as local salvage treatments for such perineal masses, including those occurring after biopsy, surgery, or interstitial brachytherapy. We report on a patient who presented no evidence of disease and no late urinary or gastrointestinal toxicities at 58 months after receiving high-dose-rate brachytherapy (HDR-BT) for perineal recurrence of PCa after radical prostatectomy and salvage external beam radiotherapy.

[Interactions between radical prostatovesiculectomy and diagnosis of prostate cancer : A medical-historical inventory on the occasion of 20 years of robot-assisted treatment].

Urologe A 2020 Nov 17. Epub 2020 Nov 17.

Lehrstuhl für Urologie, Klinikum der Universität Regensburg, Franz-Josef-Strauß-Allee 11, 93053, Regensburg, Deutschland.

The question of what came first-in this case the diagnosis of prostate cancer or its therapy-seems absurd at first glance and is reminiscent of the classic metaphor-like problem that preoccupied the Greek writer Plutarch (45-125). Today it is a matter of course that a reliable diagnosis is made before treating a disease, but this must be viewed as inconsistent in medical history. The beginnings of radical prostatectomy for the treatment of prostate cancer, like the first surgical therapies for kidney and bladder tumors, can be located in the pioneering period of organ surgery in the German Empire (1871-1918).

Targeted and systematic cognitive freehand-guided transperineal biopsy: is there still a role for systematic biopsy?

BJU Int 2020 08 19;126(2):280-285. Epub 2020 May 19.

Department of Urology, Guy's and Saint Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust, London, UK.

Objectives: To assess whether targeted cognitive freehand-assisted transperineal biopsies using a Precisionpoint device still require additional systematic biopsies to avoid missing clinically significant prostate cancer, and to investigate the benefit of a quadrant-only biopsy approach to analyse whether a quadrant or extended target of the quadrant containing the target only would have been equivalent to systematic biopsy.

Patients And Methods: Patients underwent combined systematic mapping and targeted transperineal prostate biopsies at a single institution. Biopsies were performed using the Precisionpoint device (Perineologic, Cumberland, MD, USA) under either local anaesthetic (58%, 163/282), i. Read More

Considering the role of radical prostatectomy in 21st century prostate cancer care.

Nat Rev Urol 2020 03 21;17(3):177-188. Epub 2020 Feb 21.

Department of Urology, Royal Melbourne Hospital, University of Melbourne, Melbourne, Australia.

The practice of radical prostatectomy for treating prostate cancer has evolved remarkably since its general introduction around 1900. Initially described using a perineal approach, the procedure was later popularized using a retropubic one, after it was first described as such in 1948. The open surgical method has now largely been abandoned in favour of the minimally invasive robot-assisted method, which was first described in 2000. Read More

Uroflow stop test with electromyography: a novel index of urinary continence recovery after RARP.

Int Urol Nephrol 2019 Apr 23;51(4):609-615. Epub 2019 Feb 23.

Division of Urology Clinic, Department of Surgical and Biomedical Sciences, University Hospital of Perugia, Perugia, Italy.

Purpose: Urinary incontinence (UI) is one of the most bothersome surgical side effects after robot-assisted radical prostatectomy (RARP). Alteration of both smooth and striate urethral sphincter occurs after RARP. Since the contraction of perineal muscles is involved in the complex mechanism of urinary continence, the uroflow stop test (UST) seems to predict early continence recovery after RARP. Read More

Recovery of urinary function after robotic-assisted laparoscopic prostatectomy versus radical perineal prostatectomy for early-stage prostate cancer.

Int Urol Nephrol 2018 Dec 16;50(12):2187-2191. Epub 2018 Oct 16.

Department of Urology, Beaumont Health, Royal Oak, MI, USA.

Introduction: Robotic-assisted laparoscopic prostatectomy (RALP) has largely replaced open radical prostatectomy in many centers. Radical perineal prostatectomy (RPP) is another less invasive approach that has not been widely adopted. RPP offers excellent exposure of the urinary sphincter and bladder neck that may provide good urinary function outcomes. Read More

[Management of vesicourethral anastomotic stenosis after radical prostatectomy].

Servicio de Urología, Hospital Universitario Marqués de Valdecilla, Santander, Cantabria, España; Facultad de Medicina, Universidad de Cantabria, Santander, Cantabria, España.

Vesicourethral anastomotic stenosis is a relatively uncommon problem after radical prostatectomy, but it could become recurrent and difficult to treat. Risk factors are known, and they can help to decrease the incidence. When discussing the therapeutic plan, we must consider the stenosis risk, and also the urinary continence after the prostatectomy.
