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 report predictors of positive surgical margins and long-term oncological outcomes for patients with positive surgical margins. MATERIALS AND METHODS Clinical,(More)
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, urinary continence and postoperative complications. MATERIALS AND METHODS From May 1983 through February 2003, 1 surgeon (WJC) performed anatomical RRP using a(More)
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-analysis (meta-COPA) to identify SPINK1 outlier expression exclusively in a subset of ETS rearrangement-negative cancers ( approximately 10% of total cases). We validated the(More)
OBJECTIVES Commonly used definitions for high-risk prostate cancer identify men at increased risk of PSA relapse after radical prostatectomy (RP). We assessed how accurately these definitions identify patients likely to receive secondary cancer therapy, experience metastatic progression, or die of prostate cancer. MATERIALS AND METHODS Among 5960 men with(More)
OBJECTIVES To determine the impact of body mass index (BMI) on perioperative functional and oncological outcomes in patients undergoing robotic laparoscopic radical prostatectomy (RLRP) when stratified by BMI. METHODS Data were collected prospectively for 945 consecutive patients undergoing RLRP. Patients were evaluated with the UCLA-PCI-SF36v2(More)
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, review potential methods of delivery and propose study design parameters. MATERIALS AND METHODS Articles regarding the epidemiology, diagnosis, imaging, treatment and(More)
INTRODUCTION Modified template retroperitoneal lymph node dissections (RPLND) have become increasing applied in the postchemotherapy (PC) setting. We evaluated our experience with PC-RPLND to determine the incidence of disease extending outside the boundaries of a modified PC-RPLND. PATIENTS AND METHODS From 1989 through 2003, a total of 532 men underwent(More)
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 screen detected cancers and the pathological risk factors for prostate cancer specific mortality are needed for treatment decision making. MATERIALS AND METHODS Using Fine(More)
PURPOSE The clinical and pathological features of solid or complex cystic renal masses in young adults have not been defined. We present our experience with patients 17 to 45 years old with such renal masses to define the incidence of malignant vs benign lesions, familial tendencies and clinical outcomes. MATERIALS AND METHODS The medical records of all(More)
PURPOSE It has been suggested that cysteine-rich secretory protein 3 (CRISP-3) and beta-microseminoprotein (MSP) are associated with outcome in prostate cancer. We investigated whether these markers are related to biochemical recurrence and whether addition of the markers improves prediction of recurring disease. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN Tissue microarrays of(More)
