OBJECTIVES: We investigated the clinical outcomes of radical cystectomy without cisplatin-based neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) and identified factors affecting the effectiveness of cisplatin-based adjuvant chemotherapy (AC). METHODS: Between September 2002 and February 2020, 288 bladder cancer patients who did not receive NAC underwent radical cystectomy. We retrospectively analyzed the recurrence rates, primary recurrence sites, recurrence-free survival (RFS), and overall survival (OS) of 115 advanced bladder cancer patients (pT3-4 or pN1-3) who were divided into the AC and observation groups...

Liquid biopsy has emerged as a valuable and minimally invasive tool for real-time detection of clinically actionable abnormalities across various cancer types. Its applicability is particularly compelling in the realm of prostate cancer, where novel therapeutic agents, including those targeting DNA repair systems, are under development. Despite these advancements, challenges persist in effectively screening for prostate cancer, enhancing risk stratification, and determining optimal approaches for treating advanced disease...

OBJECTIVES: A large-scale nationwide epidemiological survey of lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) was conducted via the Internet in 2023 to clarify the current prevalence of LUTS and evaluate its impact on daily life in Japan. METHODS: The survey was conducted among individuals aged 20-99 years old who had anonymously registered with a Japanese online research company. The survey consisted of 48 questions related to LUTS and daily life. RESULTS: A total of 6210 participants (3088 females and 3122 males), who were selected by probability sampling based on the composition of the Japanese population (age range: 20-99), were recruited...

OBJECTIVE: The objective of the study was to describe the surgical outcome of robot-assisted radical cystectomy and predictive factors for major complications in real-world clinical practice at a single institution in Japan. METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed 208 consecutive patients undergoing robot-assisted radical cystectomy at our institution between 2019 and 2023. Patient and disease characteristics, intraoperative details, and perioperative outcomes were reviewed...

OBJECTIVES: Infertility is inability to conceive after 12 months of regular unprotected sex. MiRNA expression changes can serve as potential biomarkers for infertility in males due to impaired spermatogenesis. This research was conducted to measure the expression level of miR-211 in plasma samples as a factor identifying infertility in comparison with the control group. METHODS: In this study, blood plasma were taken from the infertile men (n = 103) nonobstructive azoospermia (NOA) or severe oligozoospermia (SO) and the control group (n = 121)...

OBJECTIVES: Evaluate real-world epidemiologic trends and treatment patterns in newly diagnosed patients with locally advanced or metastatic urothelial carcinoma (la/mUC) in Japan. METHODS: This retrospective analysis included adults with newly diagnosed la/mUC in Japan (January 2015-December 2019) from a nationwide-linked electronic medical record Diagnostic Procedure Combination claims dataset. Outcomes included epidemiologic trends (incidence and prevalence), baseline demographics, clinical characteristics, and treatment patterns in newly diagnosed patients with la/mUC before (2015-2017) and after (2018-2019) approval of pembrolizumab in Japan...

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the utility of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and MRI-ultrasound fusion targeted biopsy (TB) for predicting unexpected extracapsular extension (ECE) in clinically localized prostate cancer (CLPC). METHODS: This study enrolled 89 prostate cancer patients with one or more lesions showing a Prostate Imaging-Reporting and Data System (PI-RADS) score ≥3 but without morphological abnormality in the prostatic capsule on pre-biopsy MRI. All patients underwent TB and systematic biopsy followed by radical prostatectomy (RP)...

Prostatic hyperplasia is very common in elderly men and is a typical disease that reduces quality of life. Histologically, hyperplasia of the prostate gland causes obstruction at the bladder outlet, resulting in symptoms such as a weak urine stream. Various factors have been considered to cause histological enlargement of the prostate, but the underlying cause is still unknown. The factors that cause prostate hyperplasia can be broadly classified into intrinsic and extrinsic ones. Extrinsic factors include things that we directly come into contact with such as bacteria and food...

INTRODUCTION: Use of indocyanine green (ICG) with near-infrared fluorescence (NIRF) has been demonstrated to be an effective tool for intraoperative assessment of bowel and ureteric vascularity. This study aimed to evaluate the impact of ICG on postsurgical outcomes such as anastomotic bowel leak and uretero-enteric stricture formation during robot-assisted cystectomy (RAC) and intracorporeal urinary diversion (ICUD). METHODS: We identified 238 patients who underwent RAC at the University of Louisville between September 2012 and August 2021...

OBJECTIVES: The American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC)/Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) 8th edition has proposed micrometastasis as a lymph node metastasis (LN+) of diameter ≤2 mm in prostate cancer. However, supporting evidence has not described. We evaluated LN+ patients' survival after radical prostatectomy (RP) based on the LN maximum tumor diameter (MTD). METHODS: Data from 561 LN+ patients after RP and pelvic LN dissection (PLND) treated between 2006 and 2019 at 33 institutions were retrospectively investigated...
