Referral to radiation oncology prior to prostatectomy: Referral rates in a New Zealand tertiary Centre.

J Med Imaging Radiat Oncol 2022 Jun 25. Epub 2022 Jun 25.

Department of Radiation Oncology, Auckland City Hospital, Auckland, New Zealand.

Background: Radical prostatectomy and radical radiotherapy have equivalent survival outcomes in the treatment of localised prostate cancer but differing side-effect profiles. The 2018 Faculty of Radiation Oncology of the Royal Australasian College of Radiologists (RANZCR) position statement recommends that patients have the opportunity to discuss all suitable treatment options, ideally with the relevant specialist. This study aimed to determine the number and characteristics of men referred to radiation oncology before undergoing radical prostatectomy in the years immediately preceding the 2018 RANZCR position statement.

Development of a novel nomogram to identify the candidate to extended pelvic lymph node dissection in patients who underwent mpMRI and target biopsy only.

Prostate Cancer Prostatic Dis 2022 Jun 24. Epub 2022 Jun 24.

Division of Urology, Department Of Oncology, School of Medicine, University of Turin, San Luigi Hospital, Orbassano, Turin, Italy.

Background: Nowadays a tool able to predict the risk of lymph-node invasion (LNI) in patients underwent target biopsy (TB) only before radical prostatectomy (RP) is still lacking. Our aim is to develop a model based on mp-MRI and target biopsy (TB) alone able to predict the risk of LNI.

Methods: We retrospectively extracted data of patients with preoperative positive mp-MRI and TB only who underwent RARP with ePLND from April 2014 to March 2020. Read More

The SAFE Pilot Trial-SAlvage Focal Irreversible Electroporation-For Recurrent Localized Prostate Cancer: Rationale and Study Protocol.

Front Surg 2022 7;9:900528. Epub 2022 Jun 7.

Department of Surgical Sciences and Urology Clinic, University of Turin and Città della Salute e della Scienza, Turin, Italy.

Introduction: Currently, the majority of prostate cancer (PCa) recurrences after non-surgical first-line treatment are managed with androgen-deprivation therapy (ADT). Salvage radical prostatectomy (sRP) is a curative alternative to ADT but yields significant morbidity. Preliminary evidence from focal salvage treatments shows similar oncological control but lower morbidity compared to sRP. Read More

The Latest Data Specifically Focused on Long-Term Oncologic Prognostication for Very Old Adults with Acute Vulnerable Localized Prostate Cancer: A Nationwide Cohort Study.

J Clin Med 2022 Jun 15;11(12). Epub 2022 Jun 15.

Biotech and Healthcare Management, School of Health Care Administration, College of Management, Taipei Medical University, Taipei 110, Taiwan.

Purpose: Few studies have evaluated the prime treatment choice for men older than 80 years with acute vulnerable localized prostate cancer (AV-LPC). Clinicians have been deeply troubled by this near end-of-life medical choice for a very specific group of patients. We compared the oncological prognostication of very old patients with AV-LPC after they underwent either radical prostatectomy (RP) or massive-dose intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) coupled with long-term androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) over a long-term investigation.

Predictors of Bone Metastases at Ga-PSMA-11 PET/CT in Hormone-Sensitive Prostate Cancer (HSPC) Patients with Early Biochemical Recurrence or Persistence.

Diagnostics (Basel) 2022 May 24;12(6). Epub 2022 May 24.

Nuclear Medicine, Department of Medical Sciences, AOU Città Della Salute e Della Scienza di Torino, University of Turin, 10126 Turin, Italy.

Prostate-specific-membrane-antigen/positron-emission-tomography (PSMA-PET) can accurately detect disease localizations in prostate cancer (PCa) patients with early biochemical recurrence/persistence (BCR/BCP), allowing for more personalized image-guided treatments in oligometastatic patients with major impact in the case of bone metastases (BM). Therefore, this study aimed to identify predictors of BM at PSMA-PET in early-BCR/BCP hormone-sensitive PCa (HSPC) patients, previously treated with radical intent (radiotherapy or radical prostatectomy ± salvage-radiotherapy (SRT)). A retrospective analysis was performed on 443 Ga-PSMA-11-PET/CT scans. Read More

Biochemical Failure Is Not a Surrogate End Point for Overall Survival in Recurrent Prostate Cancer: Analysis of NRG Oncology/RTOG 9601.

J Clin Oncol 2022 Jun 23:JCO2102741. Epub 2022 Jun 23.

Department of Radiation Oncology, University Hospitals, Cleveland, OH.

Purpose: Metastasis-free survival (MFS), but not event-free survival, is a validated surrogate end point for overall survival (OS) in men treated for localized prostate cancer. It remains unknown if this holds true in biochemically recurrent disease after radical prostatectomy. Leveraging NRG/RTOG 9601, we aimed to determine the performance of intermediate clinical end points (ICEs) as surrogate end points for OS in recurrent prostate cancer. Read More

Predictive role of node-rads score in patients with prostate cancer candidates for radical prostatectomy with extended lymph node dissection: comparative analysis with validated nomograms.

Prostate Cancer Prostatic Dis 2022 Jun 22. Epub 2022 Jun 22.

Department of Radiologic Sciences, University Sapienza of Rome, Rome, Italy.

Background And Objectives: The Reporting and Data System (RADS) have been used in the attempts to standardize the results of oncological scans in different scenarios, such as lymph nodes, adding configuration criteria to size determination. We analyze the predictive value of preoperative Node-RADS determination at imaging for pelvic lymph node (PLN) involvement in cases of prostate cancer (PC) considered for radical prostatectomy (RP) with extended lymph node dissection (eLND) and we compare it with validate predictive nomograms (MSKCC, Briganti and Gandaglia).

Methods: 150 patients with a histological diagnosis of PC (high risk or intermediate with an estimated risk for pN+ higher than 5% using the Briganti or 7% using the Gandaglia nomogram) submitted for RP with an ePLND from 2018 and 2021 were retrospectively examined. Read More
