Comparing Retzius-sparing and conventional robot-assisted radical prostatectomy for men with localized prostate cancer

Comparing Retzius-sparing and conventional robot-assisted radical prostatectomy for men with localized prostate cancer

Posted by on Jun 5, 2022 in Prostate cancer | 0 comments

In a nutshell This review compared the outcomes of 2 techniques for robotic-assisted radical prostatectomy (RARP; complete removal of the prostate gland using robotic arms): Retzius-sparing (RS)-RARP and conventional (C)-RARP in patients with localized prostate cancer (PCa). The analysis showed that RS-RARP was associated with improved urinary...

Should 18F-fluciclovine-PET/CT be included into the decision-making process for radiotherapy after surgery for prostate cancer?

Should 18F-fluciclovine-PET/CT be included into the decision-making process for radiotherapy after surgery for prostate cancer?

Posted by on Aug 22, 2021 in Prostate cancer | 0 comments

In a nutshell This study evaluated the role of 18F-fluciclovine-PET-CT versus conventional imaging (bone scan and either CT or MRI) alone for salvage radiotherapy (RT) after prostate surgery for the treatment of patients with localized prostate cancer (PCa). The data showed that including 18F-fluciclovine-PET-CT into the decision-making process for RT...

Does nerve-sparing status impact surgical margin location for recurrence of prostate cancer after prostate surgery?

Does nerve-sparing status impact surgical margin location for recurrence of prostate cancer after prostate surgery?

Posted by on Aug 15, 2021 in Prostate cancer | 0 comments

In a nutshell This article looked at the impact of nerve-sparing (NS) surgery on positive surgical margin (PSM) location and the recurrence of tumors in patients following radical prostatectomy (RP; prostate removal surgery). The authors found that having NS surgery on both sides of the prostate increased the risk of PSM and was associated with a higher...

Evaluating the association between the lowest PSA value after prostate surgery and the occurrence of biochemical recurrence in patients with localized prostate cancer

Evaluating the association between the lowest PSA value after prostate surgery and the occurrence of biochemical recurrence in patients with localized prostate cancer

Posted by on Jul 11, 2021 in Prostate cancer | 0 comments

In a nutshell This study investigated the association between the lowest PSA value after radical prostatectomy (RP; surgery to remove the prostate) and the occurrence of biochemical recurrence (BCR) in patients with localized prostate cancer (PCa). The study found that a higher PSA value after RP and a shorter time to reach this...

Evaluating the effectiveness and optimal duration of additional androgen deprivation therapy after radiotherapy in locally advanced prostate cancer

Posted by on Apr 25, 2021 in Prostate cancer | 0 comments

In a nutshell This study investigated the outcomes and effectiveness of administering additional (adjuvant) androgen deprivation therapy (A-ADT) for long-term after radiotherapy (RT) in high-risk or very high-risk locally advanced prostate cancer (LAPC). The study found that the addition of A-ADT longer than 1 year after RT showed good treatment outcomes...
