Factors affecting length of stay in Fournier's gangrene: a retrospective analysis of 10 years' data.
CONCLUSION: Fournier's gangrene is a mortal disease and an emergency condition. With the improvements in Fournier's gangrene disease management, mortality rates are decreasing, but long-term hospital stay has become a new problem. Knowing the values predicting length of stay and mortality rates can allow for patient-based treatment and may be useful in treatment choice.

MA Abstract Due to novel therapies, the prognosis of patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma (mRCC) has improved. A median overall survival of more than two years is a realistic goal. Immunotherapy combinations with checkpoint inhibitors or checkpoint inhibitors and the tyrosine kinase inhibitor axitinib are new first-line options.Sunitinib, pazopanib, tivozanib and the combination of bevacizumab + interferon alpha are approved for first-line therapy regardless of the progression risk score. The use of both the combination of nivolumab + ipilimumab and cabozantinib is restricted to intermediate and ...

[A rare case of renal ectopic thyroid tissue].
We present a rare case of ectopic thyroid tissue found during robotic nephrectomy of a kidney with a suspected malignant tumour. Such cases of ectopic thyroid tissue are extremely rare in the literature. If ectopic thyroid tissue occurs, it is usually found in the neck region or in the upper mediastinum. Clinical symptoms depend on size, localisation and hormonal function of the ectopic tissue. Surgical resection remains the treatment of choice; in individual cases, conservative treatment can be an option. This case report aims to emphasise that renal tumours of unknown origin might be paraneoplastic or ectopic tissue of o...

Clinical characteristics and treatments of hereditary leiomyomatosis renal cell carcinoma: two case reports and literature review.
CONCLUSION:  Hereditary leiomyomatosis renal cell carcinoma is a rare hereditary disease resulting from FH gene mutation. There are currently no effective treatments.Our cases demonstrate that hereditary leiomyomatosis renal cell carcinoma is a very aggressive disease. Early screening and surveillance are recommended for patients with a family history or who are at risk of hereditary leiomyomatosis renal cell carcinoma. Surgical and palliative therapy still play an important role in clinical treatment. PMID: 32932527 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: Aktuelle Urologie)

[Retrovesical recurrence of renal cell carcinoma 14 years after laparoscopic nephrectomy: a case report].
We present the case of a 70-year-old patient with a solitary recurrence of a clear renal cell carcinoma in retrovesical location after a relapse-free survival of 14 years. We performed cystoprostatectomy with an ileal conduit, resecting the tumour completely (in sano). The long-term prognosis of the patient cannot be estimated as yet.Despite the fact that a solitary and very late recurrence of a renal cell carcinoma in retrovesical location is extremely rare, late recurrence is a specific characteristic of renal cell carcinoma. Therefore, long-term follow-up for at least 15 years is required. Curative surgical resection is...

A case of primary adenocarcinoma of the seminal vesicle treated by total laparoscopic pelvic exenteration.
We present the case of a 74-year-old male with haematospermia. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed a bulky tumour of the seminal vesicle infiltrating the prostate gland, bladder and rectum. A transrectal ultrasound-guided biopsy revealed an adenocarcinoma. Computed tomography revealed multiple lung metastases. The serum CA-125 level was high. Androgen deprivation therapy and chemotherapy (docetaxel) were prescribed. After 12 courses of docetaxel, the primary tumour and the lung metastases decreased in size and the serum CA-125 level returned to normal. The patient underwent total laparoscopic pelvic exenteration with place...

CONCLUSION:  In this initial analysis, the combined 68Ga-PSMA-11 PET/mpMRI proved to be a valuable imaging tool to guide prostate biopsies for the detection of PC in patients with a negative prior biopsy. In this approach, 68Ga-PSMA-11 PET and mpMRI show partially complementary findings that enhance the detection of PC lesions.

[Complication management for TUR of the bladder].
Abstract Transurethral resection of bladder cancer is a standard procedure in urology which requires complete resection. Knowledge of the possible complications and their management is essential for practicing urologists. The most common complications are catheter related bladder symptoms, bleeding, infections and perforation of the bladder. Resection of the orifice and positional damage are seldom but severe complications which need immediate treatment. In this review, we summarise the above mentioned complications as well as their management. PMID: 32785917 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: Aktuelle Urologie)

[Radical nephrectomy and partial nephrectomy].
Abstract Renal cell carcinoma is the 2nd most frequent urological malignancy in women and the third most frequent in men, with an age peak in the seventh decade of life. If detected early in a local non-metastatic stage, options for complete recovery are excellent. While two decades ago, even locally limited cancers of the kidney were cured by radical nephrectomy, treatment today mostly consists of local treatment for locally confined cancers. Guidelines today recommend local surgical excision (open or minimally-invasive) or - in selected cases - topical energy application (radio-frequency ablation, cryoablation)....

[Clinical management of high-risk non-muscle-invasive bladder cancer during BCG shortage: what are the options, what are the risks?]
Abstract High-risk NMIBC is challenging since, although not being muscle-invasive, it is characterised by a high propensity for progression. It is important to determine the prognostic group, which should be done by means of nomograms. Following thorough transurethral resection, adjuvant therapy with BCG is a standard treatment, but BCG is partly unavailable at present due to shortage. Hyperthermic chemotherapy has also been studied, but its broad use is not yet justified based on the data currently available, which also holds true for checkpoint blockade inhibition. Therefore, given the high propensity for progre...

Abstract Radical cystectomy may have a major impact on the lives of affected patients. Older patients often have a reduced life expectancy after radical cystectomy. Therefore, aspects of health-related quality of life (HRQOL) have to be balanced against a solely tumour-directed therapy. In this narrative review, factors influencing the HRQOL of affected patients were identified and discussed by selective literature search.Besides strategies to minimise perioperative morbidity, these include a patient-oriented and individualised treatment plan taking into account factors such as age, comorbidities, choice of urinar...
