We prospectively compared, within the same center and during the same period of time, the perioperative parameters as well as the oncological and functional results of both open retropubic (ORP) and laparoscopic radical prostatectomy (LRP). From September 1999 to September 2001, 162 patients with prostate cancer were treated with radical prostatectomy, 77(More)
PURPOSE OF REVIEW Laparoscopic radical prostatectomy is now an accepted treatment option for the management of localized prostate cancer. Numerous studies have demonstrated the feasibility and the reproducibility of this procedure. Expert teams in high-volume centres routinely carry out laparoscopic radical prostatectomy but for the novice the obstacle to(More)
BACKGROUND During the last decade, an inverse stage migration has been observed in radical prostatectomy series at tertiary centers. However, it remains unclear whether similar trends can also be observed in solely robotic practices, including nonreferral centers. The aim of this study was to investigate the clinical and pathological trends in(More)
Over the past years, laparoscopic radical prostatectomy has emerged as an attractive, exciting, and new approach for the surgical treatment of localized prostate cancer. Several centers in Europe and the United States have developed their own technique and have already published their first results. Two main routes have been used, namely, the(More)
To evaluate peri- and postoperative morbidity, and long-term oncologic and functional results of our laparoscopic radical cystectomy (LRC) technique, comparing it with our standard open approach. Between 2000 and 2010, 54 patients underwent LRC for urothelial cell carcinoma of the bladder in two academic hospitals. The procedures were performed by two(More)
Intravesical instillation of bacillus Calmette-Guerin (BCG) is the treatment of choice for non-muscle-invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC) of high grade and/or carcinoma in situ. This study evaluated the feasibility, efficacy, and tolerance of BCG instillations in eight kidney recipients for end-stage aristolochic acid nephropathy (AAN), a condition at high risk(More)
OBJECTIVES To investigate the impact of "on-demand" clamping during laparoscopic partial nephrectomy on warm ischemia time. METHODS We retrospectively reviewed 39 consecutive patients with renal tumors who had undergone transperitoneal laparoscopic partial nephrectomy from April 2002 to May 2006. Median tumor size was 2.3 cm. In all cases, the hilum was(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the risk factors associated with recurrence, progression and survival in high-risk non-muscle-invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC) patients treated with bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG) and validate the European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer (EORTC) and Spanish Urological Club for Oncological Treatment (CUETO) scores.
