The Use of Genomics in Unfavorable Intermediate-risk Prostate Cancer - David Morris

Details
David Morris joins Ashley Ross in a conversation on genomics in prostate cancer specifically, in the unfavorable intermediate-risk patient. Drs Morris and Ross highlight the use of genomics in decision-making when considering what the best treatment option is for this group of individuals. They are particularly interested in determining if any of these intermediate-risk patients might actually be...

The Molecular Biology of Prostate Cancer - Christopher Barbieri

Details
Christopher Barbieri joins Matthew Cooperberg for a discussion about the molecular biology of localized prostate cancer. Dr. Barbieri explains how the underlying molecular and genomic features that separate prostate cancer subtypes can be studied using DNA sequencing and RNA sequencing. The conversation covers predictive markers including DECIPHER, PAM50, genomic mutations, and oncogenic drivers....

Women in Urologic Oncology - Anne K. Schuckman

Details
Anne Schuckman and Alicia Morgans discuss the unique challenges and opportunities for women in urologic oncology. The two explore their own journeys in the field and provide suggestions on how young women seeking a career in urologic oncology can build their careers with confidence. Biographies: Anne K. Schuckman, MD, Director, LAC+USC Urologic Oncology, Keck Hospital of USC, USC Norris Cancer Hos...

Bladder Cancer Highlights - Stephen Williams

Details
Stephen Williams sits down with Alicia Morgans to share some of the bladder cancer highlights from AUA 2022. Dr. Williams touches on a variety of topics in both muscle-invasive bladder cancer and non-muscle-invasive bladder cancer, including data from the QUILT study at UCLA, a pilot study on a comprehensive geriatric assessment tool at the University of Washington, the importance of psychological...

A Multidisciplinary Approach to Treating High-Grade Upper Tract Disease - A Case-Based Approach - Surena Matin, Jonathan Coleman, and Jean Hoffman-Censits

Details
Surena Matin, Jonathan Coleman, and Jean Hoffman-Censits join Sam Chang in a case-based discussion on approaches to the treatment of upper tract disease. The group evaluate a 75 years old, former smoker, who develops painless gross hematuria. His CT shows a 3-centimeter, left upper pole filling defect with a soft tissue mass. Labs are essentially normal. GFR is 65. The patient has good performance...

Antegrade Administration of Reverse Thermal Mitomycin Gel for Primary Chemoablation of Upper Tract Urothelial Carcinoma via Percutaneous Nephrostomy Tube - Katie Murray

Details
Katie Murray joins Alicia Morgans to discuss reverse thermal mitomycin (JEMLYTO®) for primary chemoablation of upper tract urothelial carcinoma (UTUC) via a percutaneous nephrostomy tube. Based on results from the pivotal OLYMPUS trial, JELMYTO® is currently approved for low-grade UTUC. Dr. Murray speaks to two different methods of administration of the mitomycin gel that was allowed in this trial...

Comparison of Dual Lumen Versus Single Lumen Flexible Ureteroscopes in Proximal Ureteral and Renal Stone Management - Rohit Bhatt

Details
Rohit Bhatt presents results from this randomized study that compared single lumen versus dual lumen flexible ureteroscopy laser lithotripsy to determine which method would provide the most efficient and effective stone clearance.
