Publication date: Available online 14 December 2019Source: Urology Case ReportsAuthor(s): Ryuta Sato, Takahiro Ishikawa, Masaharu Imagawa, Hirotoshi Yonemasu, Takahiro Narimatsu, Kan MurakamiAbstractSmall cell carcinoma in the ureter is extremely rare, with few cases reported in the literature. The current report describes the case of a 63-year-old man who presented with right-side back pain. A mass was identified in the right ureter. A nephroureterectomy was performed. Subsequent microscopic examination revealed that the mass comprised a monotonous population of small cells and that the carcinoma cells were positive for cluster of AE1/AE3 and synaptophysin. The tumor was diagnosed as a ureteral small cell carcinoma. Adjuvant chemotherapy was administered with 80 mg/m2 intravenous cisplatin on day 1 and 100 mg/m2 etoposide on days 1–3, every 21 days for 2 cycles. The patient has remained disease-free 6 months after surgery.
We describe the most highly recommended generic and disease-specific PRO tools in SCD and discuss the challenges of incorporating them in clinical practice. EXPERT OPINION: PRO measures are essential to incorporate into SCD clinical trials either as primary or secondary outcomes. The use of PRO measures in SCD facilitates a patient-centered approach, which is likely to lead to improved outcomes. Significant challenges remain in adapting PRO tools to routine clinical use and in developing countries. PMID: 33034214 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Currently in fellowship doing bread/butter procedures (MBB, epidurals, PNB, few SCS/PNS trials, etc.) and just interviewed at a private practice spot where they do a lot of procedures that I will have not done any training in prior to graduating (e.g. IT pump, SI fusion, Vertiflex, Kypho, MILD, Discectomy, lots of SCS/PNS trials etc) and significant amount of "OR pain procedures" at a very busy practice seeing 30-40 pts/day - how many of you are commonly performing these procedures and are... private practice concern

Authors: Peng C, Cohen DJ Abstract INTRODUCTION: Esophageal squamous cancer remains an important cause of mortality worldwide with two new immunotherapy drugs recently approved for metastatic disease. AREAS COVERED: The authors review the epidemiology and genomics of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma. They also examine prior trials involving targeted agents under investigation as well immunotherapies that have been approved and novel combinations. EXPERT OPINION: Great advances have been made in characterizing the molecular changes in esophageal carcinoma. However, relatively few drugs have shown benefit i...

Can Aykanat, Seref Coser, Aynur Albayrak, Altug TuncelUrology Annals 2020 12(3):295-297 Mixed epithelial and stromal tumor of the kidney (MESTK) is a rare kidney tumor that tends to occur in middle-aged and older women and is characterized by a distinctive histological appearance. Most of them were incidentally detected. A 26-year-old female patient was referred to in our clinic due to intermittent left lower back pain for 2 months and left renal mass. Abdominal computed tomography showed a cystic enhanced heterogenic left renal mass about 5 cm in the largest diameter was extending from the renal pelvis to the ureter and ...
