MRI‐Targeted or Standard Biopsy for Prostate‐Cancer Diagnosis
Background Multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), with or without targeted biopsy, is an alternative to standard transrectal ultrasonography–guided biopsy for prostate‐cancer detection inExpand
Potency, continence and complications in 3,477 consecutive radical retropubic prostatectomies.
PURPOSE We report results in a series of 3,477 consecutive patients treated with anatomical nerve sparing radical retropubic prostatectomy (RRP) in terms of recovery of erectile function, urinaryExpand
Quantitative analysis of multiparametric prostate MR images: differentiation between prostate cancer and normal tissue and correlation with Gleason score--a computer-aided diagnosis development study.
PURPOSE To evaluate the potential utility of a number of parameters obtained at T2-weighted, diffusion-weighted, and dynamic contrast material-enhanced multiparametric magnetic resonance (MR) imagingExpand
The role of SPINK1 in ETS rearrangement-negative prostate cancers.
ETS gene fusions have been characterized in a majority of prostate cancers; however, the key molecular alterations in ETS-negative cancers are unclear. Here we used an outlier meta-analysisExpand
Predicting 15-year prostate cancer specific mortality after radical prostatectomy.
PURPOSE Long-term prostate cancer specific mortality after radical prostatectomy is poorly defined in the era of widespread screening. An understanding of the treated natural history of screenExpand
Positive surgical margins at partial nephrectomy: predictors and oncological outcomes.
PURPOSE The prognostic significance and optimal management of positive surgical margins following partial nephrectomy remain ill-defined. We combine data from 2 tertiary care intuitions, and reportExpand
Management of Small Renal Masses: American Society of Clinical Oncology Clinical Practice Guideline.
Purpose To provide recommendations for the management options for patients with small renal masses (SRMs). Methods By using a literature search and prospectively defined study selection, we soughtExpand
Robotic radical prostatectomy in overweight and obese patients: oncological and validated-functional outcomes.
OBJECTIVES To determine the impact of body mass index (BMI) on perioperative functional and oncological outcomes in patients undergoing robotic laparoscopic radical prostatectomy (RLRP) whenExpand
Focal therapy for localized prostate cancer: a critical appraisal of rationale and modalities.
PURPOSE Based on contemporary epidemiological and pathological characteristics of prostate cancer we explain the rationale for and concerns about focal therapy for low risk prostate cancer, reviewExpand
Renal cell carcinoma recurrence after nephrectomy for localized disease: predicting survival from time of recurrence.
PURPOSE Prognostic factors for patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma (RCC) are well established. However, the risk profile is unknown for patients with recurrent RCC after a nephrectomy forExpand
