Organ preservation

  • [Focal therapy for penile cancer].

    Focal therapies for superficial penile cancer are today important treatments since organ preservation in penile cancer has a much higher priority than it used to. Because a local recurrence does not substantially influence long-term tumour-specific survival, a slightly higher risk of local recurrence is accepted in favour of maximum organ sparing.

  • [Radiochemotherapy for invasive bladder cancer : An update].

    The standard treatment for muscle-invasive bladder cancer is radical cystectomy with pelvic lymphadenectomy. Primary organ-preservation by means of multimodal therapy, however, can be a viable alternative to radical surgery.

  • Contemporary role of radiotherapy in the management of penile cancer.

    Penile cancer is a rare clinical entity that contributes to significant patient morbidity and mortality. Human papilloma virus (HPV) plays an important role in the carcinogenesis of penile squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), is associated with improved clinical outcomes, and is predictive for response to treatment with chemotherapy and radiotherapy.

  • Current Management Strategy for Penile Cancer and Future Directions.

    The aim of this review is to evaluate the trends in multidisciplinary management of localized penile cancer and systemic therapy for advanced disease in the evolving era of targeted and immune checkpoint therapy.

  • LONG TERM OUTCOMES AND PATTERNS OF FAILURE FOLLOWING TRIMODALITY TREATMENT WITH BLADDER PRESERVATION FOR INVASIVE BLADDER CANCER.

    To report long-term results on survival, toxicity and patterns of failure of three different organ-sparing strategies for patients with muscle invasive bladder cancer (MIBC).

    This is a mono-institutional prospective analysis of three consecutive bladder-sparing protocols combining maximal trans-urethral resection of bladder tumour (mTURBT), radiotherapy (RT) and cisplatin-based chemotherapy (QT).

  • To oophorectomy or not to oophorectomy: Practice patterns among urologists treating bladder cancer.

    Classically, radical cystectomy (RC) involves hysterectomy and bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy (BSO). Current understanding of ovarian cancer pathogenesis and effect of premature oophorectomy has lead to a shift within gynecology toward risk-reducing salpingectomy without oophorectomy in the absence of gynecologic malignancy.
