The Efficacy and Safety of Laser and Electrosurgical Transurethral Procedures for the Treatment of BPO in High-Risk Patients: A Systematic Review.

Res Rep Urol 2022 17;14:247-257. Epub 2022 Jun 17.

Clinique Pasteur, Toulouse, France.

Objective: To compare efficacy and safety outcomes of GreenLight, Holmium and Thulium laser  techniques with standard monopolar and bipolar transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) in high-risk patients with lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) secondary to benign prostatic obstruction (BPO).

Methods: We conducted a systematic literature review of studies in patients undergoing BPO surgeries who may be considered high-risk for standard TURP, with higher risk defined as follows: large prostates (≥80 mL) and/or taking antithrombotic agents and/or urinary retention and/or age >80 years and/or significant comorbidity.  Outcomes summarised included bleeding complications, re-intervention rates, hospital length of stay, and standard measures of disease and symptom severity for all available timepoints.

Symptomatic absorption of normal saline during transurethral resection of the prostate: a case report.

JA Clin Rep 2022 Jun 21;8(1):43. Epub 2022 Jun 21.

Department of Anesthesiology, Osaka City University Graduate School of Medicine, 1-5-7 Asahimachi, Abeno-ku, Osaka, 545-8586, Japan.

Background: Transurethral resection of the prostate (TUR-P) could incidentally cause hyponatremia, known as TUR syndrome due to intravascular absorption of non-electrolytic irrigation fluid. Recently, normal saline has been used as an irrigation fluid in a new system named TURis (TUR in saline) to prevent TUR syndrome. However, rapid massive absorption of normal saline can also cause other systemic adverse events. Read More

Surgical Treatments of Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia and Prostate Cancer Stereotactic Radiotherapy: Impact on Long-Term Genitourinary Toxicity.

Clin Oncol (R Coll Radiol) 2022 Jun 14. Epub 2022 Jun 14.

Division of Radiation Oncology, Geneva University Hospital, Geneva, Switzerland; Faculty of Medicine, Geneva University, Geneva, Switzerland. Electronic address:

Prostate cancer metastasis mimicking a primary urothelial carcinoma of the bladder.

J Surg Case Rep 2022 Jun 14;2022(6):rjac275. Epub 2022 Jun 14.

Department of Urology, Princess Royal University Hospital, King's College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust Farnborough Common, London BR6 8ND, UK.

We report on a 79-year-old male patient who presented with asymptomatic elevation of prostate-specific antigen and a concurrent papillary lesion, which raised the suspicion of synchronous bladder and prostatic malignancies. He underwent a trans-perineal prostate biopsy as well as transurethral resection of bladder tumour, which revealed a Gleason 9 adenocarcinoma of prostatic origin. While synchronous bladder and prostate cancer is a possibility, differential diagnosis in a patient presenting with lesions of the bladder neck should include advanced prostate cancer. Read More

Virchows Arch 2022 Jun 17. Epub 2022 Jun 17.

Department of Urology, University Hospital Frankfurt, Goethe University Frankfurt am Main, Frankfurt/Main, Germany.

The aim of this study is to investigate the incidental prostate cancer (iPCa) detection rates of different embedding methods in a large, contemporary cohort of patients with bladder outlet obstruction (BOO) treated with transurethral surgery. We relied on an institutional tertiary-care database to identify BOO patients who underwent either transurethral loop resection or laser (Holmium:yttrium-aluminium garnet) enucleation of the prostate (HoLEP) between 01/2012 and 12/2019.

Prostate Cancer Prostatic Dis 2022 Jun 10. Epub 2022 Jun 10.

Division of Urology Krembil Research Institute, University Health Network, Toronto, ON, Canada.

Background: Recently, minimally invasive therapies (MITs), such as water vapor thermal therapy (WVTT) and prostatic urethral lift (PUL) have become an alternative to surgery or pharmacotherapy to manage benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), offering symptom relief with a favorable safety profile. The objective of this study was to evaluate the cost-utility of MITs (WVTT and PUL) compared to pharmacotherapy as initial treatment for patients with moderate-to-severe BPH.

Estrogen and G protein-coupled estrogen receptor accelerate the progression of benign prostatic hyperplasia by inducing prostatic fibrosis.

Cell Death Dis 2022 Jun 7;13(6):533. Epub 2022 Jun 7.

Department of Urology, Peking University First Hospital, 100034, Beijing, China.

Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is the most common and progressive urological disease in elderly men worldwide. Epidemiological studies have suggested that the speed of disease progression varies among individuals, while the pathophysiological mechanisms of accelerated clinical progression in some BPH patients remain to be elucidated. In this study, we defined patients with BPH as belonging to the accelerated progressive group (transurethral resection of the prostate [TURP] surgery at ≤50 years old), normal-speed progressive group (TURP surgery at ≥70 years old), or non-progressive group (age ≤50 years old without BPH-related surgery).

Efficacy and Safety of Transurethral Enucleation with Bipolar Energy for the Treatment of Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia: Does Prostate Volume Matter?

J Nippon Med Sch 2022 May 30. Epub 2022 May 30.

Department of Urology, Nippon Medical School, Tokyo, Japan.

Background: We evaluated whether the efficacy and safety of transurethral enucleation with bipolar energy (TUEB) is affected by prostate volume (PV) in the treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).

Methods: We retrospectively evaluated 180 patients with symptomatic BPH who underwent TUEB between 2008 and 2015. Efficacy was assessed by perioperative changes in the international prostate symptom score (IPSS), Quality of Life Score (QOLS), maximum flow rate on uroflowmetry (Qmax), and serum prostate-specific antigen level (PSA), which were recorded at 3 months postoperative.

[Interpretation of biopsy material after transuretral and laser en bloc resection of non-muscle-invasive bladder cancer].

Arkh Patol 2022 ;84(3):32-39

Lomonosov Moscow State University, Moscow, Russia.

Bladder cancer is one of the most common onco-urological diseases, ranked second in frequency among all tumors of the urinary system after prostate cancer. At the time of detection of the primary tumor, approximately 75% of patients have no invasion into the muscularis layer (non-muscle-invasive carcinoma), with tumor growth limited to the basal membrane (stage Ta) or submucosal base (stage T1). Removal of the tumor in a «unified block» (laser en-bloc resection or L-ERBT), unlike routine transurethral resection, allows to obtain qualitative biopsy material for precise pathomorphological staging of the tumor process.

Analgesic Effects of Dexmedetomidine Combined with Spinal and Epidural Anesthesia Nursing on Prostate Hyperplasia Patients after Transurethral Resection of Prostate by Intelligent Algorithm-Based Magnetic Resonance Imaging.

Comput Math Methods Med 2022 21;2022:4243244. Epub 2022 May 21.

Department of Anesthesia Surgery, Changsha Fourth Hospital, Changsha, 410006 Hunan, China.

To analyze the investigation of the application effects of different doses of dexmedetomidine (Dex) with combined spinal and epidural anesthesia nursing on analgesia after transurethral resection of prostate (TURP) by intelligent algorithm-based magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), MRI imaging segmentation model of mask regions with convolutional neural network (Mask R-CNN) features was proposed in the research. Besides, the segmentation effects of Mask R-CNN, U-net, and V-net algorithms were compared and analyzed. Meanwhile, a total of 184 patients receiving TURP were selected as the research objects, and they were divided into A, B, C, and D groups based on random number table method, each group including 46 cases.

Internal Medicine, Hospital Prof. Doutor Fernando Fonseca, Amadora, PRT.

Treatment-emergent transformed neuroendocrine prostate cancer (NEPC) is a highly aggressive type of prostate cancer that may arise from typical adenocarcinoma of the prostate, which is associated with rapidly progressive disease involving visceral sites and refractoriness to hormonal therapy. We present the case of a 74-year old male with a known history of stable prostate adenocarcinoma treated with transurethral prostate resection, local radiotherapy (RT), and androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) in 2020 who presented to the emergency room with complaints of shoulder and anterior chest pain, dyspnoea, and fatigue.
