  • [Title] Needle tract implantation after fine needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB) of transitional cell carcinoma of the urinary bladder and adenocarcinoma of the lung.
  • Primary tumors were two transitional cell carcinomas of the urinary bladder (2 dogs) and one pulmonary adenocarcinoma (1 cat).
  • To our knowledge, the seeding of pulmonary adenocarcinoma cells after FNAB on the thoracic wall has never been reported in veterinary medicine.

  • [Title] Palliative radiation therapy of symptomatic recurrent bladder cancer.
  • RT is effective at palliating both locally advanced and metastatic cancer, including related symptoms of pain, bleeding, or obstruction.
  • With regard to bladder cancer there is some evidence of the benefit of palliative RT for the control of urinary symptoms and hematuria; however, there is little evidence for the use of palliative RT for pain associated with locally recurrent bladder cancer.
  • We report a case of locally advanced recurrent bladder cancer which was refractory to medical pain management, and was found to be highly responsive to palliative RT.
  • CASE REPORT: An 80-year-old woman with recurrent bladder cancer and intractable pelvic pain refractory to oral and transdermal pain medications, received palliative pelvic RT to a dose of 50 Gy (5000 cGy) in 25 fractions with complete resolution of pain.
  • The patient was originally found to have dysuria, frequency, and hematuria, secondary to an invasive high grade transitional cell carcinoma of the bladder with an adenocarcinoma component, AJCC pT2b N1 M0 Stage IV, for which she underwent a radical cystectomy, total abdominal hysterectomy, bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy, partial vaginectomy, and ileal conduit reconstruction.
  • The patient was treated with another course of chemotherapy and pain was managed with relatively low doses of opioid medication (25mcg transdermal fentanyl patch, and oxycodone 5mg bid).
  • Ultimately a pain medication regimen of 200mcg transdermal fentanyl patch q2 days, oxycontin 20mg bid, oxycodone 5 - 10mg q 4 hours, ibuprofen 400mg q 8 hours, and gabapentin 600mg TID was not effective in controlling pain.
  • She was able to decrease pain medications, increase overall activity, and gain significant improvement in sleep quality and appetite even early on in the course of her radiation therapy.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Palliative radiation therapy has been well studied in the setting of bone metastases and treatment of hematuria for locally advanced bladder cancer.
  • There is little data that we are aware of on the use of RT for pain control with patients that have recurrent, locally advanced bladder cancer.
  • RT is an excellent option for pain management in recurrent bladder cancer and should be offered to patients whose pain is not otherwise optimally controlled.
  • Palliative RT is an important component in the multimodality approach to cancer pain management and optimization of quality of life.

  • [Title] New developments in first- and second-line chemotherapy for transitional cell, squamous cell and adenocarcinoma of the bladder.
  • PURPOSE OF REVIEW: To review the systemic treatment, patient selection and treatment outcome of transitional cell carcinoma of the urinary bladder, squamous cell carcinoma and adenocarcinoma, focusing on advances and findings within the last year.
  • Patient selection for cisplatin, newer drugs or alternative combinations is crucial.
  • Only few data are available on the systemic treatment of squamous cell carcinoma and adenocarcinoma.
  • Complete resection seems to be more important than chemotherapy in the rare cases of adenocarcinoma of the urinary tract.
