Modified simple prostatectomy: an approach to address large volume BPH and associated prostate cancers

AbstractSimple prostatectomy is an option for management of patients with enlarged prostates and obstructive symptoms. However, the guidelines still do not state a gold-standard treatment for men with BPH and some of these patients with BPH are also known to harbor prostate cancer. This issue can be a challenge because, in the traditional simple prostatectomy, the prostate capsule is often left in place, and that is usually the area of the prostate cancers. With the robotic approach, our goal is to analyze the outcomes of modified simple prostatectomy (MSP) by the elimination of the entire prostate tissue. Thirty-four patients underwent MSP for BPH diagnosis. We evaluated the pre- and postoperative clinical characteristics as well as pathological data. MSP was performed using the DaVinci Xi robot; the entire prostate was removed. We performed a full nerve sparing bilaterally with an intrafascial plane dissection, minimal apical dissection, seminal vesicles sparing, and full vesicourethral anastomosis. The pre- and postoperative AUA scores were compared on pairedT test. The mean operative time and blood loss were 126  min and 160.5 ml, respectively. The final pathology report described 17 patients (50%) with BPH and 17 (50%) with BPH and prostate adenocarcinoma. After surgery, 97% had an AUA score improvement. Regarding the patients with a prostate cancer diagnosis, 97% had PSA lower than 0.01 ng/ml. Modified simple prostatectomy is an acceptable treatment optio...

Authors: Alzubaidi AN, Nepple KG, Vollstedt A, Dahmoush L, Ma D, Henry MD, Brown JA Abstract INTRODUCTION: Dystroglycan (DG) is a cell surface receptor for extracellular matrix proteins involved in tissue mechanical stability and matrix organization. Initial work has demonstrated that alpha-DG expression is decreased in many types of adenocarcinoma, including prostate, and potentially associated with the development of metastatic disease. However, the consistency between prostate and lymph node alpha-DG staining has not been previously reported. In addition, identification of an immunohistochemical marker associate...

CONCLUSIONS: The single-port approach has advantages as easier surgical planning and transition for combined and multi-quadrants surgeries: faster recovery, minimal postoperative pain and need for opioids, and excellent cosmetic outcome. We suggest that combined procedures should be performed only in high volume institutions by surgeons with vast experience in robotic surgery in selected patients.

Genetic alterations of HOXB13 help to explore the suspected role in prostate cancer. To determine the prevalence and clinical correlates of high-frequent mutational events in home box transcription factor (HOXB13); DNA samp...

Metastasis of prostate cancer (PCa) to renal pelvis is extremely rare. A 64-year-old man was hospitalized for increased prostate specific antigen (PSA) after radical prostatectomy. 68Ga-PSMA-11 PET/CT showed hydronephrosis caused by a mass in the left renal pelvis without significant uptake of PSMA tracer. The histopathology indicated metastatic PCa with a Gleason score of 5+5 but negative for prostate specific membrane antigen (PSMA) following nephroureterectomy. Although metastasis to renal pelvis is rare, the occurrence possibility could not be ignored when with hydronephrosis is found in prostate cancer patients.
