Robert G Hahn

J Basic Clin Physiol Pharmacol 2021 Sep 27. Epub 2021 Sep 27.

Research Unit, Södertälje Hospital, Södertälje, Sweden.

Objectives: Systemic absorption of the irrigating fluid used to flush the operating site is a potentially serious complication in several types of endoscopic operations. To increase safety, many surgeons have changed from a monopolar to a bipolar resection technique because 0.9% saline can then be used instead of electrolyte-free fluid for irrigation. Read More

Utility of D2-40, Cytokeratin 5/6, and High-Molecular-weight Cytokeratin (Clone 34βE12) in Distinguishing Intraductal Spread of Urothelial Carcinoma From Prostatic Stromal Invasion.

Am J Surg Pathol 2021 Sep 23. Epub 2021 Sep 23.

Departments of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine Urology Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center, University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, Miami, FL.

Intraductal spread of urothelial carcinoma (UC) is not an uncommon finding in bladder cancer that requires appropriate clinical management. The presence of prostatic stromal invasion in non-muscle-invasive bladder cancer upstages the disease, necessitating cisplatin-based neoadjuvant chemotherapy and subsequent cystroprostatectomy. However, the identification of prostatic stromal invasion can be challenging, especially in biopsy and transurethral resection specimens. Read More

Transurethral Resection of Bladder Tumor: Electrosurgical and Laser.

J Endourol 2021 Sep;35(S2):S46-S51

Department of Urology, Campus Biomedico University of Rome, Rome, Italy.

Transurethral resection of bladder tumor (TURBT) is still the gold standard for the diagnosis, treatment, and staging of nonmuscle invasive bladder cancer. En bloc resection of bladder tumor (EBRT) has been recently introduced to overcome the limitations of conventional TURBT. EBRT potential advantages are (1) complete resection, (2) a more precise and controlled resection (potentially fewer complications), (3) better sample orientation for histopathology analysis, (4) presence of detrusor in the specimen, and (5) less tumor seeding on normal urothelium by tumor fragments.
