Tumor size is a determinant of the rate of stage T1 renal cell cancer synchronous metastasis.
PURPOSE A recent multi-institutional analysis of 995 patients treated for renal cell cancer questioned the relationship between tumor size and the synchronous metastasis rate. We revisited theExpand

Prospective evaluation of prostate-specific antigen density and systematic biopsies for early detection of prostatic carcinoma.
Significant controversies persist in regard to the need for systematic biopsies in patients with serum prostate-specific antigen (PSA) levels above 4 ng/mL (Hybritech assay), especially if they showExpand

Mortality at 120 days after prostatic biopsy: A population‐based study of 22,175 men
Trans‐rectal ultrasound guided biopsy of the prostate represents the diagnostic standard for prostate cancer, but its mortality rate has never been examined. We performed a population‐based study ofExpand

A population based assessment of perioperative mortality after cystectomy for bladder cancer.
PURPOSE Large variability exists in the rates of perioperative mortality after cystectomy. Contemporary estimates range from 0.7% to 5.6%. We tested several predictors of perioperative mortality andExpand

A population‐based comparison of survival after nephrectomy vs nonsurgical management for small renal masses
To examine population‐based rates of cancer‐specific and other‐cause mortality after either non‐surgical management (NSM) or nephrectomy, in patients with small renal masses, as several reports fromExpand

The effect of comorbidity and socioeconomic status on sexual and urinary function and on general health-related quality of life in men treated with radical prostatectomy for localized prostate cancer.
INTRODUCTION Different treatments for localized prostate cancer (PCa) may be associated with similar overall survival but may demonstrate important differences in health-related quality of lifeExpand

Cytoreductive partial nephrectomy does not undermine cancer control in metastatic renal cell carcinoma: a population-based study.
OBJECTIVES We examined the population-based rates of cancer-specific survival in patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma (MRCC) treated with either partial (PN) or radical cytoreductiveExpand
