AbstractObjectiveTo assess the influence of race on presentation of poorly differentiated/undifferentiated prostate cancer, use of radical prostatectomy (RP) as primary treatment and survival outcomes.MethodsUsing the 2004 –2014 files of the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) data, we identified 244,167 black and white men diagnosed with poorly differentiated/undifferentiated prostate cancer. Demographic and tumor characteristics of study patients were compared by race. Logistic regression was used t o evaluate the influence of race on receipt of RP. Cox proportional hazard models were fitted to deter...

CONCLUSIONS: These results demonstrated that the length of resected MU measured by specimen was an independent predictor of urinary incontinence after radical prostatectomy. Care should be taken to preserve maximal length of MU for optimal continence outcomes. PMID: 30882170 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSION: We observed that the EBL, TR and OT were significantly lower when we applied the modified RRP technique to patients. This modified technique might be applicable for institutions as an alternative procedure for the standard RRP technique. PMID: 30882157 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

To evaluate the feasibility of routine outpatient management after robotic-assisted radical prostatectomy (RARP). Prostate cancer is indeed the second most common cancer in men. Surgical technics have evolved from open surgery to robot-assisted surgery with a reduction of postoperative complications. Such technical improvements associated with modern anesthesia allow outpatient surgery in various types of procedures.

utzel H Abstract PURPOSE: To assess whole-body magnetic resonance imaging (wb-MRI) for detection of biochemical recurrence in comparison to 68Ga-prostate-specific membrane antigen positron emission tomography/computed tomography (68Ga-PSMA PET/CT) in prostate cancer (Pca) patients after radical prostatectomy. METHODS: This was a prospective trial including 28 consecutive patients (mean age 65.3 ± 9.0 years) with newly documented biochemical recurrence of Pca (mean prostate-specific antigen, PSA, 2.09 ± 1.95 ng/ml) following radical prostatectomy. All patient...
