5. Ondrus D, Hornák M, Breza J, Mat'oska J, Schnorrer M, Belan V, Kausitz J: Delayed orchiectomy after chemotherapy in patients with advanced testicular cancer. Int Urol Nephrol; 2001;32(4):665-7
Hazardous Substances Data Bank. VINBLASTINE .

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Delayed orchiectomy after chemotherapy in patients with advanced testicular cancer.
  • INTRODUCTION: The therapeutic procedures in the management of testicular cancer are determined by histological findings in the removed testis and by the extent of the disease at the time of diagnosis.
  • However, all advanced tumors could be treated by primary chemotherapy regardless of the histological findings.
  • The current imaging techniques (ultrasound of the testis, abdominal and chest CT examination) and laboratory tests (determination of serum tumor markers AFP and hCG) provide sufficient evidence for the presence of cancer.
  • When the diagnosis of advanced tumor is evident, it is possible to start the treatment without orchiectomy.
  • The aim of this study was to evaluate the advantages of neo-adjuvant chemotherapy with delayed orchiectomy in the management of advanced testicular cancer.
  • MATERIAL AND METHODS: A total of 36 patients with advanced germ cell testicular cancer underwent primary PVB or BEP chemotherapy without previous orchiectomy.
  • Detailed medical, surgical and urological examination showed pulmonary metastases and/or extensive abdominal tumorous masses imitating acute abdominal crisis and impaired drainage of the kidney due to ureteral obstruction.
  • Searching for the origin, testicular tumor was detected.
  • The patients were treated with cisplatin-containing combination chemotherapy.
  • Following completion of chemotherapy, orchiectomy was performed alone or simultaneously with retroperitoneal lymph node dissection (RPLND) and/or lung metastasectomy in cases with persistent residual mass.
  • Following orchiectomy the patients were regularly checked and in cases with viable malignant tumor found in the testis sequential chemotherapy was administered.
  • Similarly when the relapse of the disease was detected, the patients were treated with sequential chemotherapy.
  • RESULTS: Complete disappearance of metastases was observed in 12 patients following chemotherapy alone.
  • The viable tumor in the removed tissue was found in one patient.
  • Delayed orchiectomy was performed simultaneously with surgical removal of residual mass in the retroperitoneum in 24 patients and as a separate procedure in 12 patients who have been considered to be complete responders following chemotherapy alone.
  • Residual viable tumor in testicular specimen was found in three patients, necrotic or fibrotic tissue in 18, and mature teratoma in 15 patients.
  • Overall survival of the patients was 26/36 (72.7%) at mean of 56.9 months (range 7-145 months, median 50 months) since the start of the treatment.
  • CONCLUSIONS: In patients with advanced germ cell testicular cancer preference must be given to the early beginning of intensive chemotherapy without the need of tissue diagnosis of primary tumor that should be obtained by orchiectomy.
  • Benefit of this therapeutic approach is the timely management of acute abdominal and/or pulmonary symptoms of life-threatening distant metastases.

  • [Title] [A clinical study of renal pelvic and ureteral cancer: prognosis and frequency of subsequent bladder cancer following surgical treatment].
  • PURPOSE: A retrospective investigation of patients presenting with renal pelvic and ureteral cancer was performed.
  • This study focused on the prognostic factors and frequency of subsequent bladder cancer following surgical treatment.
  • Various factors were evaluated according to survival and non-bladder cancer occurrence rates.
  • Seventeen patients exhibited renal pelvic cancer, 25 cases displayed ureteral cancer and three subjects presented with multiple cancers.
  • Eleven patients had received treatment for precedent or coexistent superficial bladder cancer by transurethral resection.
  • Pathological T factor, tumor grade and pN factor demonstrated a significant effect on survival; however, sex, age, tumor localization and incidence of subsequent bladder cancer had no influence on survival.
  • The 5-year non-bladder cancer occurrence rate was 38.8%; additionally, all subsequent bladder cancer was disclosed within three years.
  • Tumor multiplicity exclusively in the upper urinary tract significantly affected occurrence of bladder cancer.
  • T factor and tumor grade revealed no correlation to occurrence.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Adjuvant chemotherapy for prevention of clinical metastasis should be considered in cases involving pT3 or higher stage, grade 3, or in instances of pathologically confirmed lymph node metastasis.
  • The significant occurrence of subsequent bladder cancer in the case of tumor multiplicity suggested that prophylactic therapy such as intravesical BCG instillation or chemotherapy might be beneficial.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Role of external radiation therapy in urinary cancers.
  • Invasive urinary tumors are relatively rare and their treatment may cause important changes in urinary, sexual, and social functions.
  • A systematic review of external radiation therapy studies in urinary cancers has been carried out.
  • There are few controlled clinical trials using adjuvant or radical radiotherapy +/- chemotherapy in kidney, ureter, and urethra cancers; there are several reports of muscle-invasive bladder cancer using multimodality treatment: intravesical surgery and neo-adjuvant chemotherapy to radiotherapy or concomitant radiochemotherapy with organ preservation.
  • The conclusions reached for renal cancer are controversial; urethra and ureter cancers data are few and inconclusive; sufficient data now exist in literature to demonstrate that conservative management with organ preservation, for muscle-invasive bladder cancer, is a valid alternative to radical cystectomy, viewed as the gold standard.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • We report here a case of ureteral cancer in which port-site metastasis was suspected after a nephroureterectomy.
  • A tumor was found in his left renal pelvis and ureter by a computed tomographic (CT) scan.
  • The patient was diagnosed with a left upper urinary tract cancer with a clinical stage of T2N0M0.
  • The pathological diagnosis was an urothelial carcinoma, grade 2 > 3, INFbeta, pT3, pV1, pN2.
  • He received two courses of MVAC chemotherapy (methotrexate 50 mg, vinblastine 5 mg, adriamycin 50mg, cisplatin 120 mg) postoperatively.
  • Since retroperitoneal lymph node metastasis was observed three months later on a CT scan, the MVAC chemotherapy was repeated for three courses.
  • Nine months later, a tumor was found in the hypodermic beside the port-site, and a needle biopsy confirmed a metastatic urothelial carcinoma.
  • He received two courses of GP chemotherapy (gemcitabine 4,250 mg, paclitaxel 225 mg).

  • [Title] Oncolytic viral therapy by bladder instillation using an E1A, E1B double-restricted adenovirus in an orthotopic bladder cancer model.
  • OBJECTIVES: To investigate the therapeutic effect of AxdAdB-3, a double-restricted oncolytic adenovirus harboring a mutant E1A and an E1B-55KD deletion, on human bladder cancer cell lines and the SCID mouse model of orthotopic bladder cancer.
  • METHODS: The cytopathic effects of AxdAdB-3 were evaluated in several cell lines (YTS-1, YTS-3, T24, J82, 5637) derived from human bladder or ureteral cancer and in a normal bladder mucosa-derived cell line (HCV29) with AxCAlacZ (control) or AxE1AdB (E1B-55KD-defective adenovirus) or dl922-947 (E1A-mutated adenovirus).
  • The efficacy of bladder instillation therapy with AxdAdB-3 for orthotopic bladder cancer of SCID mice was investigated.
  • RESULTS: AxdAdB-3 caused the oncolysis of bladder cancer cell lines in vitro, and it was more cytopathic than AxE1AdB or dl922-947 in the cancer cell lines.
  • Direct instillation of AxdAdB-3 into the bladder of the orthotopic model inhibited tumor growth, leading to significantly prolonged survival.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Oncolytic viral therapy delivered by instillation of AxdAdB-3 is a promising tool for treating bladder cancer.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • PURPOSE: Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor of the genitourinary tract is a spindled soft tissue lesion that is often mistaken for sarcoma.
  • The relationship between inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor and other morphologically similar entities has been a long-standing source of controversy.
  • We investigated whether inflammatory myofibroblastic tumors in adults and children are the same entity, and whether inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor is part of a biological spectrum that includes benign and malignant entities at opposite ends.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor of the genitourinary tract should be considered a neoplasm of uncertain malignant potential, and routine surveillance and close clinical followup are recommended.
  • Aggressive therapy (radical cystectomy, radiation or chemotherapy) is unwarranted given the indolent and often benign clinical course for the majority of cases.
  • To understand the diagnostic and prognostic implications future emphasis should be placed on the link between genetic abnormalities, and clinical course, therapeutic response and ultimate outcome.

Hazardous Substances Data Bank. OXYBUTYNIN .

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • BACKGROUND: Intravesical oxybutynin chloride with hydroxypropylcellulose (HPC) (modified intravesical oxybutynin) has been reported to be effective for treatment of overactive bladder.
  • METHODS: Modified intravesical oxybutynin (5 mg/10 mL, twice a day) was applied for more than 3 years to six neurogenic overactive detrusor patients (three men and three women, average age 53.3 years) who were not satisfied with oral anticholinergic agents or the other therapy.
  • A cystometogram (CMG) was performed before, 1 week after and 3 years after the start of modified intravesical oxybutynin treatment.
  • We evaluated the patient's satisfaction of this treatment after 4 weeks and again after 3 years.
  • We compared the patients' answers before and after the therapy (excellent, good, fair, unchanged and worse).
  • RESULTS: CMG studies showed that two of six patients no longer exhibited uninhibited contraction 1 week after the treatment and that the cystocapacity of patients before, 1 week after and 3 years after the initial modified intravesical oxybutynin was 129.7 +/- 19.4, 283.5 +/- 40.4 and 286.8 +/- 38.1 mL, respectively.
  • For the evaluation of patients' satisfaction with this treatment, four patients considered the therapy excellent and one patient described it as good after both 4 weeks and after 3 years.
  • Two patients dropped out of the study; one developed left ureteral cancer (2.25 years) and the other developed ileus (1.5 years).
  • CONCLUSION: Modified intravesical oxybutynin is an effective and relatively safe option of therapy for overactive bladder patients.
  • However, this therapy requires careful observation for emergent side-effects.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Risk factors for the development of bladder cancer after upper tract urothelial cancer.
  • OBJECTIVES: To determine the clinical and pathologic risk factors for initial intravesical recurrence in patients with primary renal pelvic and/or ureteral cancer and to examine the progression in the bladder in patients having high risk factors for intravesical recurrence.
  • METHODS: This study included 69 patients with renal pelvic and/or ureteral cancer.
  • We excluded patients with distant metastases, those with a short period of follow-up, and those having a previous history or concomitance of bladder cancer.
  • The exclusion criteria were chosen to avoid contamination by patients with a poor prognosis who might die of the primary cancer before bladder cancer development.
  • Multivariate analysis by Cox's proportional hazards model was used to determine what clinical and pathologic variables significantly affected the initial intravesical recurrence of cancer.
  • We also studied the stage progression of cancer that recurred in the bladder.
  • RESULTS: Initial intravesical recurrence of the cancer was found in 22 patients during a median follow-up period of 53 months (range 12 to 225).
  • The intravesical disease-free rate after upper tract urothelial cancer was 65% (rate of disease recurrence in bladder 35%) at 5 years by the Kaplan-Meier method.
  • The extent (multifocality) of the upper urinary cancer (P = 0.0038) and pathologic stage (P = 0.0409) independently influenced intravesical recurrence.
  • Age, sex, adjuvant chemotherapy, configuration of the primary tumor, primary cancer size, and pathologic grade did not affect recurrence.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The extent and pathologic stage of cancer in the upper urinary tract were significant and independent factors for initial intravesical recurrence of cancer.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Uterine cervical carcinoma is one of the most common malignant tumors occurring in females.
  • After primary treatment, patients are usually followed up with CT or MRI and the findings of these modalities may be the first sign of recurrent disease.
  • Because earlier additional treatment by chemotherapy or radiation therapy may improve the prognosis, the early detection of recurrent cervical carcinoma is clinically important.
  • A further contribution of CT and MR imaging is the detection of hydronephrosis due to ureteral obstruction.
  • The cases in each group are illustrated and discussed, and since an awareness of the spectrum of imaging findings of recurrent cervical carcinoma is likely to lead to its early detection, radiologists should be familiar with the information presented.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Long-term survival is possible after stenting for malignant ureteric obstruction in colorectal cancer.
  • INTRODUCTION: Ureteric obstruction is a potentially terminal event in patients with irresectable or recurrent colorectal cancer.
  • However, there is little in the literature about outcomes after this procedure and it is unclear which, if any, patients should be offered this intervention.
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: This was a retrospective review of a prospectively collected database of patients diagnosed with colorectal cancer.
  • The aetiology of obstruction was recurrent tumour in 6 patients and irresectable tumour in the remaining 7 patients.
  • Four patients received chemotherapy after stenting.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Long-term survival is possible in selected patients with recurrent or irresectable colorectal cancer and malignant ureteric obstruction.
  • This appears to be more likely in those patients in whom other treatments, particularly chemotherapy, are available.

  • Both patients had undergone radiotherapy (60 Gy) and cisplatin-based chemotherapy, one 17 years before the present presentation and the other 24 years earlier.
  • They underwent retroperitoneoscopy-assisted left nephroureterectomy under a diagnosis of left upper ureteral cancer, established by means of ureteroscopy and brush biopsy.
  • Recently, some investigators have reported that testicular cancer survivors are at significantly increased risk of solid tumors for at least 35 years after treatment.
  • Young patients may have a high risk of cancer when they reach an advanced age.

  • [Title] [Primary malignant lymphoma of the ureter: a case report].
  • Computed tomography and retrograde pyelography revealed a soft tissue mass in the middle portion of the right ureter.
  • Urine cytology specimen from the right ureter suggested transitional cell carcinoma.
  • Under the diagnosis of right ureteral cancer, we performed right total nephro-ureterectomy, partial cystectomy.
  • The histopathological examination showed non-Hodgkin lymphoma (large B-cell type) of the ureter.
  • Our diagnosis was Clinical Stage IE of the Ann Arbor Classification.
  • The patient received only the first course of systemic chemotherapy (THP-cop), because he suffered severe thrombocytopenia in the course of the chemotherapy.
