CONTEXT The European Association of Urology (EAU) guidelines panel on Muscle-invasive and Metastatic bladder cancer (BCa) updates its guidelines yearly. This updated summary provides a synthesis of the 2013 guidelines document, with emphasis on the latest developments. OBJECTIVE To provide graded recommendations on the diagnosis and treatment of patients(More)
CONTEXT The European Association of Urology (EAU) guideline group for upper tract urothelial carcinoma (UTUC) has prepared updated guidelines to aid clinicians in assessing the current evidence-based management of UTUC and to incorporate present recommendations into daily clinical practice. OBJECTIVE To provide a brief overview of the EAU guidelines on(More)
Clear cell papillary renal cell carcinoma (ccpRCC) and renal angiomyoadenomatous tumor (RAT) share morphologic similarities with clear cell (ccRCC) and papillary RCC (pRCC). It is a matter of controversy whether their morphologic, immunophenotypic, and molecular features allow the definition of a separate renal carcinoma entity. The aim of our project was(More)
PURPOSE We determined the cancer control provided by nephron sparing surgery for renal cell carcinoma greater than 4 cm. MATERIALS AND METHODS We performed a retrospective review of data on patients treated between 1980 and 2005. The case characteristics analyzed were patient age, surgical procedure, intraoperative parameters, complications, tumor size,(More)
CONTEXT Penile cancer has high mortality once metastatic spread has occurred. Local treatment can be mutilating and devastating for the patient. Progress has been made in organ-preserving local treatment, lymph node management, and multimodal treatment of lymphatic metastases, requiring an update of the European Association of Urology guidelines.

CONTEXT The European Association of Urology (EAU) guidelines panel on upper urinary tract urothelial cell carcinoma (UTUC) has prepared updated guidelines to aid clinicians in the current evidence-based management of UTUC and to incorporate recommendations into clinical practice. OBJECTIVE To provide a brief overview of the EAU guidelines on UTUC as an(More)
We report clinicopathologic features of a large series of renal translocation carcinomas from a multicentric study. Diagnosis was performed by cytogenetic examination of fresh material and/or by immunochemistry with antibodies directed against the C-terminal part of transcription factor E3 (TFE3) and native transcription factor EB (TFEB) proteins. Clinical(More)
CONTEXT There is an ongoing debate about the factors that influence intravesical recurrence (IVR) after radical nephrouretectomy (RNU) to treat upper tract urothelial carcinoma (UTUC). OBJECTIVE To assess significant predictors of IVR after RNU from a systematic review of the literature and meta-analysis. EVIDENCE ACQUISITION A computerized(More)
CONTEXT Controversy exists regarding the therapeutic value of lymphadenectomy (LND) in patients undergoing radical cystectomy (RC) for muscle-invasive bladder cancer (MIBC). OBJECTIVE To systematically review the relevant literature assessing the impact of LND on oncologic and perioperative outcomes in patients undergoing RC for MIBC. EVIDENCE(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the cancer control afforded by radical prostatectomy in patients who underwent either an open, laparoscopic, or robotic procedure for localized prostate cancer. METHODS We collected data on all patients treated between 2000 and 2004. We recorded age, BMI, PSA, Gleason score and 2002 TNM stage, type of surgery, perioperative(More)
