In-Bore Transrectal MRI-Guided Biopsy With Robotic Assistance in the Diagnosis of Prostate Cancer: An Analysis of 57 Patients.

OBJECTIVE. The objective of our study was to analyze the feasibility and potential role of robotic-assisted transrectal MRI-guided biopsy for the diagnosis of prostate cancer. MATERIALS AND METHODS.

Validation of the prognostic value of NF-κB p65 in prostate cancer: A retrospective study using a large multi-institutional cohort of the Canadian Prostate Cancer Biomarker Network.

The identification of patients with high-risk prostate cancer (PC) is a major challenge for clinicians, and the improvement of current prognostic parameters is an unmet clinical need. We and others have identified an association between the nuclear localization of NF-κB p65 and biochemical recurrence (BCR) in PC in small and/or single-centre cohorts of patients.

Multiparametric MRI reporting using Prostate Imaging Reporting and Data System version 2.0 (PI-RADSv2) retains clinical efficacy in a predominantly post-biopsy patient population.

To evaluate the efficacy of multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging (mp-MRI) using Prostate Imaging Reporting and Data System version 2.0 (PI-RADSv2) definitions in detecting organ-confined prostate cancer.

Practice patterns and outcomes of equivocal bone scans for patients with castration-resistant prostate cancer: Results from SEARCH.

To review follow-up imaging after equivocal bone scans in men with castration resistant prostate cancer (CRPC) and examine the characteristics of equivocal bone scans that are associated with positive follow-up imaging.

Prevalence and predictors of probable depression in prostate cancer survivors.

The early diagnosis and treatment of depression are cancer care priorities. These priorities are critical for prostate cancer survivors because men rarely seek mental health care. However, little is known about the epidemiology of depression in this patient population.

Comparative effectiveness of treatments for high-risk prostate cancer patients.

To determine the comparative effectiveness of primary radical prostatectomy (RP) compared to external bean radiation therapy (EBRT) with androgen deprivation therapy (ADT), or EBRT plus brachytherapy (BT) with or without ADT among Medicare fee-for-service beneficiaries with high-risk prostate cancer, for 10-year, mortality (overall and prostate cancer-specific), complications, health service use, and cost.

Optimizing the number of cores for MRI guided targeted and systematic transperineal prostate biopsy.

To assess cancer detection rates of different target-dependent transperineal magnetic resonance (MR) / ultrasound (US) fusion-guided biopsy templates with reduced number of systematic cores.

Single-centre outcome of transperineal MR/US fusion guided biopsies of 487 men with a single target MRI lesion, prospectively collected between 2012 and 2016.

Sexual Function in Patients Treated With Stereotactic Radiotherapy For Prostate Cancer: A Systematic Review of the Current Evidence.

Sexual function can be impaired by all prostate cancer treatment modalities, but studies specifically addressing the impact of stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) on sexual function are scarce.

To systematically evaluate sexual outcomes in patients treated by SBRT for prostate cancer and determine clinical factors associated with erectile dysfunction (ED).

Management of patients with high-risk and advanced prostate cancer in the Middle East: resource-stratified consensus recommendations.

Prostate cancer care in the Middle East is highly variable and access to specialist multidisciplinary management is limited. Academic tertiary referral centers offer cutting-edge diagnosis and treatment; however, in many parts of the region, patients are managed by non-specialists with limited resources.

Delayed versus standard ligature of the dorsal venous complex during laparoscopic radical prostatectomy: A systematic review and meta-analysis of comparative studies.

To evaluate current views on comparing delayed ligature of the dorsal venous complex (D-DVC) with standard ligature of the dorsal venous complex (S-DVC) for safety, urinary control and oncological outcomes during laparoscopic radical prostatectomy.
