Radical cystectomy for bladder cancer today--a homogeneous series without neoadjuvant therapy.
TLDR
Despite negative preoperative staging, pelvic lymphadenectomy and cystectomy for bladder cancer reveal a high percentage of unsuspected nodal metastases that have a 25% chance for long-term survival.
Disease progression and survival of patients with positive lymph nodes after radical prostatectomy. Is there a chance of cure?
TLDR
Meticulous pelvic lymph node dissection, particularly in patients with micrometastases, seems not only to be a staging procedure, but may also have a positive impact on disease progression and long-term disease-free survival.
The template of the primary lymphatic landing sites of the prostate should be revisited: results of a multimodality mapping study.
TLDR
The multimodality technique presented here enables precise mapping of the primary prostatic lymphatic landing sites and suggests that PLND for prostate cancer should include not only the external and obturator regions as well as the portions medial and lateral to the internal iliac vessels, but also the common iliAC LNs at least up to the ureteric crossing.
Long-term outcome of ileal conduit diversion.
TLDR
This study demonstrates a high conduit related complication rate in long-term survivors and underlines the need for vigorous long- term followup.
Twenty years experience with an ileal orthotopic low pressure bladder substitute--lessons to be learned.
TLDR
Ileal orthotopic bladder substitution combined with an afferent ileal tubular segment allows for good long-term functional results provided patients are restrictively selected, postoperative instructions are followed carefully, and typical complications such as outlet obstruction and hernias are treated early.
Super extended versus extended pelvic lymph node dissection in patients undergoing radical cystectomy for bladder cancer: a comparative study.
TLDR
Meticulous extended lymph node dissection up to the mid-upper third of the common iliac vessels appears to provide survival and recurrence outcomes similar to those of a super extended template up toThe inferior mesenteric artery.
Is a limited lymph node dissection an adequate staging procedure for prostate cancer?
TLDR
There were significant numbers of lymph node metastases at all 3 different areas of lymphadenectomy and lymph node dissection along the internal iliac (hypogastric) vessels essential for representative staging.
Immediate or deferred androgen deprivation for patients with prostate cancer not suitable for local treatment with curative intent: European Organisation for Research and Treatment of Cancer (EORTC)
TLDR
Immediate androgen deprivation resulted in a modest but statistically significant increase in overall survival but no significant difference in prostate cancer mortality or symptom-free survival.
Complications following radical cystectomy for bladder cancer in the elderly.
TLDR
Although age alone does not preclude radical cystectomy for muscle-invasive or recurrent bladder cancer or for certain types of urinary diversion, careful surveillance is required, even after the first 30 d after surgery.
Outcome after radical cystectomy with limited or extended pelvic lymph node dissection.
TLDR
The data suggest that limited pelvic lymph node dissection is associated with suboptimal staging, poorer outcome for patients with node positive and node negative disease, and a higher rate of local progression.
