PURPOSE The purpose of this guideline is to provide a clinical framework for the diagnosis, evaluation and follow-up of asymptomatic microhematuria. MATERIALS AND METHODS A systematic literature review using the MEDLINE® database was conducted to identify peer reviewed publications relevant to the definition, diagnosis, evaluation and follow-up for AMH.(More)
OBJECTIVE To report on the initial four patients who had robotic salvage retropubic prostatectomy (SRP) for biochemical recurrence after radiation therapy, and to review the surgical outcome of robotic cystoprostatectomy for bladder cancer in two patients who previously had prostate cancer. PATIENTS AND METHODS Since February 2006, four patients had SRP(More)
PURPOSE We reported on the results of a sequential cohort study comparing office based saturation prostate biopsy to traditional 10-core sampling as an initial biopsy. MATERIALS AND METHODS Based on improved cancer detection of office based saturation prostate biopsy repeat biopsy, we adopted the technique as an initial biopsy strategy to improve cancer(More)
OBJECTIVE •To compare magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)-targeted biopsies with extended systematic biopsies for the detection of significant prostate cancer. METHODS •In all, 555 consecutive patients with suspicion of prostate cancer had pre-biopsy dynamic contrast-enhanced 1.5-tesla (T) MRI with pelvic coil, 10-12 transrectal ultrasound-guided extended(More)
PURPOSE We report contemporary outcomes of salvage cryoablation at a large number of centers which have participated in the COLD (Cryo On-Line Data) Registry. MATERIALS AND METHODS A secure online database was developed to collect data for patients undergoing prostate cryoablation. Kaplan-Meier analysis was performed with biochemical failure defined using(More)
PURPOSE We report the largest data set to date to our knowledge regarding outcomes for primary whole gland prostate cryoablation. MATERIALS AND METHODS The COLD (Cryo On-Line Data) Registry consists of case report forms obtaining pretreatment and posttreatment information for patients undergoing whole gland prostate cryoablation. A total of 1,198 patients(More)
STUDY TYPE Diagnostic (exploratory cohort). LEVEL OF EVIDENCE 2b. OBJECTIVE To develop a nomogram to predict the probability that the pathological Gleason sum (GS) will be higher than that indicated by the biopsy, suggesting a higher risk for the patient presumed to be at low risk, as a substantial proportion of patients with low and intermediate grade(More)
BACKGROUND The postcystectomy survival benefit associated with the combination of methotrexate, vinblastine, doxorubicin, and cisplatin (MVAC) neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NC) for muscle-invasive bladder cancer has been most evident in patients who achieve a pathologic complete response. The outcome of NC and open radical cystectomy (RC) was evaluated in a(More)
CONTEXT Prostate cancer (PCa) screening to detect early stage PCa has resulted in increased identification of small-volume, low-grade PCa, many of which meet criteria for clinically indolent disease. Nevertheless, there remains some degree of underdetection of high-risk PCa in substantial numbers of men despite current diagnostic strategies. OBJECTIVE To(More)
UNLABELLED Study Type - Therapy (cohort) Level of Evidence 2b What's known on the subject? and What does the study add? Selective destruction of targeted prostate tissue is now technically feasible. Much has been theorized but little is known about the proper patient selection or treatment outcomes to determine if this organ preserving approach to prostate(More)
