Inclusion of a molecular marker of bladder cancer in a clinical pathway for investigation of haematuria may reduce the need for cystoscopy.

CONCLUSIONS: In our series, all significant bladder cancers were diagnosed by imaging and CxbT before cystoscopy was undertaken. The high negative predictive value of this clinical pathway would allow approximately one-third of patients with haematuria to be managed without cystoscopy. PMID: 31220066 [PubMed - in process]

The International Bladder Cancer Group’s recommendation for BCG cystitis included many agents, these treatment options had very limited outcomes.

Conclusions: Accelerated hypofractionated radiotherapy alone provides good local control in elderly patients unfit for chemoradiotherapy. Contemporary radiation techniques such as VMAT were associated with reduced bowel toxicity compared with 3D CRT.

Authors: Warncke J, White S, O'Keefe M, Kim F, da Silva RD Abstract Transitional cell carcinoma is the most common type of bladder cancer in the United States. This case report discusses the finding of primary bladder carcinoid tumor (also called well-differentiated neuroendocrine tumor) in a woman with gross hematuria. With only 15-20 reported cases, primary bladder carcinoid is rare and the approach to treatment is unclear. There have been two muscle-invasive cases reported which required more extensive treatment plans. The patient presented in this case underwent complete transurethral resection of the tumor wit...

In this study, we investigated the clinical value of diuretic delayed 18F-FDG PET/CT via taking small dose of diuretics orally in diagnosing urogential cancers. To our knowledge, it is the first report which has successfully used the oral intake of small dose of furosemide in diuretic 18F-FDG PET/CT. Methods: Forty-seven patients suspected of urogenital cancers from 2015 to 2017 were divided into small dosage group (26 males and 9 females, aged 33-82 years, 20mg furosemide) and routine dosage group (9 males and 3 females, aged 50-80 years, 40mg furosemide). All patients underwent whole body PET/CT scan (Discovery, GE Healt...

It is presented a non-invasive method for detecting BC recurrence consisting of a direct electrochemical test in urine combinin...

An 83-year-old man was diagnosed with multiple low-grade transitional cell carcinomas over a 6-year period. A surveillance cystoscopy in year 7 showed high-grade noninvasive papillary urothelial carcinoma in the bladder trigone. A CT urogram showed a soft-tissue mass with diffuse enhancement in the lower pole of the left kidney, concerning for malignancy.

A total of 1216 cases of urinary bladder cancer in Iraq were evaluated for histological type and association with schistosomiasis. The detection rate of schistosomal ova was only about 30%. About half of the cases were squamous cell carcinomas and there was a high frequency of schistosomiasis. The other half of the cases were mostly transitional cell carcinomas, and these were associated with a low incidence ofSchistosoma.Only 4.7% of the papillary type were associated with schistosomiasis, and this parallels the incidence of schistosomiasis in our autopsy series and in the adult Iraqi population as a whole. The spectrum o...

CONCLUSIONS: The new Danish referral pathway has an acceptable capture rate for patients presenting with haematuria of all severities. The overall cancer detection rate of 14.5%, and 23% for patients with VH in this study, is an important validation of previous studies. A cancer detection rate of greater than 30% was shown in patients with VH over 70 years old. PMID: 28406341 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Conclusion CT virtual cystoscopy is a promising technique for detecting bladder tumours and some other bladder lesions. However, the detection rate for recurrent NMIBC does not appear to be adequate to replace conventional cystoscopy.
