Evaluation of a seminal vesicle biopsy protocol simultaneous to diagnostic prostate biopsy. Analysis of indication criteria.

CONCLUSIONS: Our seminal vesicle biopsy protocol has detected 22.2% of seminal vesicle invasion. The detection of a suspicious node at the prostate base has shown the greatest association with T3b. PMID: 28613201 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: Shah TT, To WKL, Ahmed HU Abstract INTRODUCTION: With level 1 evidence now available on the diagnostic accuracy of multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) we must now utilise this data in developing an MRI-stratified diagnostic pathway for the early detection of prostate cancer. Areas covered: A literature review was conducted and identified seven randomised control trials (RCT's) assessing the diagnostic accuracy of such a pathway against the previously accepted systematic/random trans-rectal ultrasound guided (TRUS) biopsy pathway. The studies were heterogeneous in their design. Five studies ass...

Authors: Lee KH, Kim JY, Sul YH Abstract We experienced 3 cases of manometry-induced colon perforation. A 75-year-old man (case 1) underwent anorectal manometry (ARM) 3 years after radiotherapy for prostate cancer and a laparoscopic intersphincteric resection for rectal cancer. A 70-year-old man (case 2) underwent ARM 3 months after conventional neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy and a laparoscopic low anterior resection for rectal cancer. A 78-year-old man (case 3) underwent ARM 2 months after a laparoscopic intersphincteric resection for rectal cancer. In all cases, a colon perforation with fecal peritonitis occurred....

The progressive development of FT in recent years has brought new frontiers to be overcome in the treatment of prostate cancer. Although short-term functional and oncologic outcomes are promising in this scenario, long-term outcomes provided by randomized, controlled trails are still lacking. Consistent evidence favoring one energy type vs another is still an open field for prospective studies.

In the recently updated AUA/ASTRO/SUO localized prostate cancer guidelines active surveillance was designated as an acceptable form of management for favorable intermediate risk prostate cancer.1 What is the evidence basis to support active surveillance for favorable intermediate risk prostate cancer and in what clinical context should this care option be considered?

Publication date: Available online 22 September 2017 Source:Chemico-Biological Interactions Author(s): Mariana P.C. Ribeiro, Armanda E. Santos, José B.A. Custódio The activation of the G protein-coupled estrogen receptor (GPER) by its specific agonist G-1 inhibits prostate cancer and 17β-estradiol-stimulated breast cancer cell proliferation. Tamoxifen (TAM), which also activates the GPER, decreases melanoma cell proliferation, but its action mechanism remains controversial. Here we investigated the expression and the effects of GPER activation by G-1, TAM and its key metabolite endoxifen (EDX) on melano...

I read with interest, the recently published manuscript by Scailteux et  al., investigating whether cardiovascular risks differ by the type of androgen deprivation therapy selected in men with newly treated prostate cancer [1]. The authors specifically cited our analysis (ref 14) which raised the hypothesis that Gonadotropin Releasing Hormone (GnRH) antagonists may low er cardiovascular risks when compared with agonists but neglected to test our full hypothesis that this difference occurs primarily in men with pre-existing cardiovascular disease [2].
