  • [Title] Weekly paclitaxel and carboplatin against advanced transitional cell cancer after failure of a platinum-based regimen.
  • OBJECTIVE: Weekly administration of paclitaxel plus carboplatin is hypothesized to be an effective second-line treatment for advanced transitional cell cancer after failure of platinum-based regimen.
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: Patients with advanced transitional cell cancer who showed evidence of progressive or recurrent disease after methotrexate, vinblastine, doxorubicin, and cisplatin (MVAC) therapy were eligible for this study.
  • The median progression-free survival (PFS) and median survival times were 3.7 and 7.9 mo, respectively.
  • Among the 22 patients who received prior MVAC therapy for metastatic disease, 36% had an objective response; their median PFS and median survival times were 4.3 and 7.9 mo, respectively; neither survival time significantly differed from the survival time of those who received prior MVAC as adjuvant setting.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Weekly paclitaxel plus carboplatin was a manageable, active second-line treatment for advanced transitional cell cancer after failure of platinum-based therapy.

  • [Title] Positive response to bevacizumab in a patient with metastatic, chemotherapy-refractory urothelial carcinoma.
  • We report the case of a 78-year-old man with metastatic transitional-cell carcinoma with squamous differentiation that responded dramatically to the monoclonal antibody agent, bevacizumab.
  • The tumor originated in the bulbar urethra, with histology of poorly differentiated urothelial carcinoma.
  • Metastasis to a right inguinal lymph node was biopsy-confirmed as transitional-cell carcinoma with areas of keratinization.
  • At last follow-up, he had received 24 months of bevacizumab treatment with minimal toxicity and a positive response.
  • Mediators of angiogenesis have been implicated in the clinical progression of bladder cancer, although the role of angiogenesis inhibitors as treatment has not yet been defined.
  • The striking benefit achieved in this heavily treated patient suggests that bevacizumab could have clinically useful antitumor activity in advanced urothelial carcinoma.

  • [Transliterated title] Actualización de las Guías Clínicas de la Asociación Europea de Urología sobre el carcinoma vesical músculo-invasivo y metastásico.
  • CONTEXT: New data regarding diagnosis and treatment of muscle-invasive and metastatic bladder cancer (MiM-BC) has emerged and led to an update of the European Association of Urology (EAU) guidelines for MiM-BC.
  • EVIDENCE ACQUISITION: A comprehensive workup of the literature obtained from Medline, the Cochrane central register of systematic reviews, and reference lists in publications and review articles was developed and screened by a group of urologists, oncologists, and radiologist appointed by the EAU Guideline Committee.
  • EVIDENCE SYNTHESIS: The diagnosis of muscle-invasive bladder cancer (BCa) is made by transurethral resection (TUR) and following histopathologic evaluation.
  • Patients with confirmed muscle-invasive BCa should be staged by computed tomography (CT) scans of the chest, abdomen, and pelvis, if available.
  • Adjuvant chemotherapy is currently only advised within clinical trials.
  • Radical cystectomy (RC) is the treatment of choice for both sexes, and lymph node dissection should be an integral part of cystectomy.
  • An orthotopic bladder substitute should be offered to both male and female patients lacking any contraindications, such as no tumour at the level of urethral dissection.
  • Multimodality bladder-preserving treatment in localised disease is currently regarded only as an alternative in selected, well-informed, and compliant patients for whom cystectomy is not considered for clinical or personal reasons.
  • c) functional deterioration at particular sites; and d) consideration of treatment of a recurrence.
  • In metastatic disease, the first-line treatment for patients fit enough to sustain cisplatin is cisplatin-containing combination chemotherapy.
  • Presently, there is no standard second-line chemotherapy.

  • [Title] Transurethral resection in the management of urethral and prostatic neoplasia in 6 dogs.
  • OBJECTIVE: To assess cystoscopic transurethral resection (TUR) for the palliative management of dogs with neoplastic infiltration of the urethra.
  • METHODS: Cystoscopic examination and electrosurgical TUR were performed in dogs with urination difficulties caused by prostatic or urethral neoplasia.
  • Cystoscopic examination was used to determine the extent of neoplastic involvement of the urethra.
  • TUR involved piecemeal removal of neoplastic tissue from the urethral lumen using an electrocautery cutting loop.
  • Hemorrhage was controlled with a cystoscopic cauterized roller-ball.
  • In 2 male dogs, intraoperative radiation therapy (IORT) was used to treat both prostatic neoplasia and the sublumbar lymph node bed.
  • Surgical technique, complications, adjuvant treatment, and outcome were recorded.
  • RESULTS: TUR was performed in 3 male dogs with prostatic carcinoma and 2 female dogs with urethral transitional cell carcinoma (TCC).
  • Iatrogenic urethral perforation occurred during TUR in 3 dogs.
  • Treatment-related complications included urinary tract infection and tumor seeding.
  • CONCLUSIONS: TUR (in combination with chemotherapy+/-IORT) resulted in rapid palliation of urination difficulties in male dogs with prostatic carcinoma.
  • In female dogs with urethral TCC, however, electrosurgical TUR cannot be recommended because of a high intra- and postoperative complication rate with no improvement in postoperative management compared with historical reports of tube cystostomy.
  • CLINICAL RELEVANCE: TUR is a novel alternative for the palliation of male dogs with prostatic carcinoma.
  • In female dogs with urethral TCC, electrosurgical TUR does not provide any advantages compared with tube cystostomy.

  • OBJECTIVE: We report a case of a primary urothelial carcinoma of the bulbomembranous urethra, with special emphasis on histopathological and immunohistochemical findings.
  • METHODS/RESULTS: A 63-year-old man presented urethral obstruction symptoms.
  • A radical phalectomy was performed and a 4.5 x 4 cm bulbomembranous urethral tumor was observed.
  • Histopathological analysis disclosed an urothelial carcinoma, that showed positive immunostaining for cytokeratin AE1/AE3, cytokeratin 7, carcinoembrionic antigen and epithelial membrane antigen.
  • The patient received radiotherapy and adjuvant chemotherapy and is currently free of disease.
  • CONCLUSION: Posterior male urothelial carcinoma of the urethra is a rare neoplasm that usually is mistaken clinically for a benign lesion.
  • The diagnostic is generally made in advanced stages with a poor therapeutical response.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • OBJECTIVE: To describe a surgical technique for resection of the entire bladder neck, including the trigone and proximal urethra in dogs with invasive tumors causing life-threatening urinary tract obstruction.
  • METHODS: Circumferential excision of the bladder neck and proximal urethra with preservation of the neurovascular pedicles was performed to remove a rhabdomyosarcoma (dog 1) and a transitional cell carcinoma (dog 2) involving the trigone and bladder neck that were causing urinary tract obstruction.
  • Reconstruction of the bladder and proximal urethra included bilateral ureteroneocystostomy.
  • Adjuvant chemotherapy was administered postoperatively to both dogs.
  • RESULTS: Postoperatively, dogs 1 and 2 were continent after 7 and 17 days, respectively, and regained normal urinary function after resolution of a transient pollakiuria.
  • CONCLUSION: En-bloc removal of the bladder neck and proximal urethra with preservation of the dorsal vascular and nervous pedicles, although a technically challenging procedure, can be performed without associated urinary incontinence or bladder wall necrosis.
  • CLINICAL RELEVANCE: In dogs with invasive bladder tumors causing life-threatening urinary tract obstruction, resection of the bladder neck and proximal urethra should be considered as a promising surgical alternative to urinary diversion.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Transitional cell carcinoma of the urethra [correction of ureter] in a patient with buttock pain: a case report.
  • This case reports on a patient with an unusual presentation of a rare tumor: urethral transitional cell carcinoma (TCC).
  • Urethral TCC occurs in approximately 0.7% to 4.0% of patients who have had primary bladder cancer.
  • The patient was initially suspected to have piriformis syndrome, but when he did not respond as expected to treatment, and because of his history of primary bladder cancer, further evaluation was undertaken and the diagnosis was made.
  • The patient responded well to radiation and chemotherapy.
  • Musculoskeletal physicians should be particularly suspicious of the presence of urethral TCC in a patient with a history of primary bladder cancer who reports low back or buttock pain, particularly if the patient does not respond quickly to treatment.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Treatment of urethral recurrence following radical cystectomy and ileal bladder substitution.
  • PURPOSE: With the introduction of orthotopic bladder substitution after radical cystectomy in patients with invasive bladder cancer urethral recurrences have become a therapeutic challenge.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: We retrospectively evaluated our patients with urethral recurrences treated with a urethra sparing approach after orthotopic bladder substitution.
  • Depending on the extension of recurrence and eventual concomitant metastases patients were treated with urethrectomy, no treatment, systemic chemotherapy or intraurethral bacillus Calmette-Guerin (BCG).
  • Three times the common dose of BCG (ImmuCyst, Aventis, Paris, France or OncoTICE, Organon, West Orange, New Jersey) in 150 ml NaCl 0.9% was used for intraurethral BCG perfusion therapy according to an institutional protocol using a modified Foley catheter.
  • RESULTS: Between 1985 and 2001, 15 of 371 patients (4%) who received an orthotopic bladder substitute had urethral recurrence.
  • Two patients were treated with systemic chemotherapy (methotrexate, vinblastine, doxorubicin and cisplatin) alone due to metastatic disease and 10 received intraurethral BCG therapy.
  • Five of 6 patients (83%) with carcinoma in situ remained free of recurrence following treatment with BCG, while in 4 with papillary or invasive disease treatment failed.
  • Three patients underwent urethrectomy, including 2 following failed BCG therapy for papillary disease.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Carcinoma in situ urethral recurrence following orthotopic bladder substitution can be treated successfully with intraurethral BCG perfusion therapy in approximately 80% of patients.
  • However, papillary and invasive transitional cell urethral recurrence should be treated with urethrectomy.

  • [Title] Treatment of low-grade bulbar transitional cell carcinoma with urethral instillation of mitomycin C.
  • A 63-year old man was referred to us after three rapid recurrences of low-grade urethral papillary transitional cell carcinoma of the bulbar urethra, after repeated primary excision.
  • Cystoscopy confirmed 3-4 low-grade urethral transitional cell carcinomas, which were subsequently fulgurated.
  • After urethral healing, a solution of Mitomycin C (40 mg/80 cc) was instilled into the urethra for fifteen minutes and held in place with a penile clamp.
  • Urethral instillations were repeated weekly for six weeks.
  • This case highlights the successful treatment of urethral carcinoma with topical chemotherapy, which is usually reserved for the bladder, using a slight modification of standard technique.

  • [Title] Surgical treatment for local control of female urethral carcinoma.
  • We reviewed 53 patients (mean age 63 years) who underwent partial urethrectomy (n = 26) or radical extirpation (n = 27) for primary female urethral cancer from 1948 through 1999.
  • Clinical stage, histology, high pathologic stage (3 or 4) and grade, tumor location, nodal status, surgery type, adjuvant therapy, and treatment decade were candidate outcome predictors.
  • The predominant carcinomas were squamous cell (n = 21), transitional cell (TCC) (n = 15), and adenocarcinoma (n = 14).
  • For adjuvant therapy, 20 patients had radiation (8 preoperatively), 2 had radiation + chemotherapy, and 1 had chemotherapy alone.
  • Of patients undergoing partial urethrectomy for pT1-3 tumors, 6/27 (22%) had urethral recurrence.
  • Recurrence-free survival +/- standard error (SE) at 10 years was 45 + 8%.
  • Upon review, partial urethrectomy resulted in a high urethral recurrence rate (22%) with no bladder recurrences.

  • [Transliterated title] Riparazione trans-vaginale di fistola neovescico-vaginale.
  • We present our personal experience with a case of neobladder vaginal fistula.
  • Definitive pathological examination revealed pT3aN0G3 urothelial cancer with squamous aspects.
  • Two cycles of neoadjuvant chemotherapy were administered before cystectomy.
  • At first, the patient was treated conservatively, keeping the urethral catheter for two months.
  • CONCLUSION: The development of a neobladder-vaginal fistula is a significant, even if infrequent, complication after cystectomy.
  • In our case, we performed a transvaginal approach without tissue interposition, with good results.
  • Such procedure is easy and effective and, in our opinion, can be tempted as first line surgical treatment.

  • STUDY TYPE: Therapy (case series) Level of Evidence 4 OBJECTIVE To evaluate our experience with urethral recurrences in patients treated by radical cystectomy(RC) and orthotopic neobladder urinary diversion for carcinoma of the bladder.
  • RESULTS: In all, 260 patients underwent RC with a Studer or Hautmann orthotopic urinary diversion; the median (range) follow-up was 5.1 (0-15.6) years.
  • Six patients (2.3%) developed local recurrence of urothelial cancer (UC) within the urethra after this treatment.
  • The median (range) time to presentation with recurrence after RC was 2.4 (0.7-3.6) years for pT1-4 UC.
  • Recurrences were treated with various methods, including transurethral resection, urethrectomy with conversion of neobladder to continent catheterizable diversion, and chemotherapy.
  • CONCLUSIONS: In our experience, local recurrences involving the urethra are infrequent.
  • Neoadjuvant chemotherapy should be considered for recurrences with adverse clinicopathological features.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Prostatic biology, histologic patterns and clinical consequences of transitional cell carcinoma.
  • PURPOSE OF REVIEW: To review the current fund of knowledge about prostatic transitional cell carcinoma and the implications for diagnostic and management strategies particularly as they relate to radical cystectomy.
  • RECENT FINDINGS: Prostatic transitional cell carcinoma (TCC) is present in up to 48% of patients undergoing radical cystoprostatectomy.
  • Transurethral resection biopsies of the prostatic urethra are a sensitive means of detecting prostatic TCC and whole-mount step sectioning is the most accurate method for determining the presence and extent of prostatic TCC.
  • Preoperative detection of prostatic TCC enables accurate staging and treatment planning, including assessment of the risk of cancer at the apical urethral margin and the risk of a second primary tumor of the retained urethra, all of which factor into decision-making around urinary diversion and urethrectomy.
  • Recognition of true T4a stage requires consideration of neoadjuvant chemotherapy and the need for extended pelvic and iliac lymphadenectomy in order to optimize an integrated treatment strategy.
  • In patients with recurrent high-grade nonmuscle invasive cancer and patients undergoing radical cystoprostatectomy, a thorough assessment of the prostatic urethra and stroma is imperative for accurate staging and treatment planning.

  • [Title] [Studer-type orthotopic urinary bladder: our experience].
  • RESULTS: Transitional cell carcinoma was found to be the most frequent histopathological type.
  • Four patients are free of disease, one died from metastatic disease and one patient with tumor progression and multiple lung metastases at two months' follow-up is currently on chemotherapy.
  • The mean operating time was significantly longer for this procedure than for the non-continent Bricker urinary diversion (mean 7.2 hours vs 3.5 hours, respectively).
  • The early and late postoperative complications were: incontinence for up to one month after removing the urethral catheter in three patients (two of these patients are still incontinent at two months' follow-up), wound infection in two and impotence in 6 patients.
  • CONCLUSION: Reservoir function in the medium-term is good; spontaneous urethral micturition and continence are maintained.

  • [Title] Adjuvant intraoperative electron radiotherapy and external beam radiotherapy for locally advanced transitional cell carcinoma of the ureter.
  • OBJECTIVE: Surgery is the mainstay treatment for transitional cell carcinoma (TCC) of the ureter; however, local recurrence remains a common cause of treatment failure for locally advanced disease after surgery, and the benefit of adjuvant radiotherapy has not been completely determined.
  • The objective of this analysis was to evaluate the outcome of postsurgical high dose radiotherapy consisting of intraoperative electron beam radiotherapy (IOERT) and external beam radiotherapy (EBRT) in locally advanced transitional cell carcinoma of the ureter.
  • The dose of IOERT ranged between 10 to 20 Gy (median 14 Gy).
  • Conventional EBRT given with the total dose ranged between 36 and 45 Gy (median 42 Gy).
  • Chemotherapy was utilized in 10 of the 17 patients at the discretion of their primary oncologist.
  • Adjuvant IOERT appears to permit dose escalation safely in patients who received conventional adjuvant EBRT and chemotherapy.

  • [Title] The treatment of primary urethral carcinoma--the dilemmas of a rare condition: experience with partial urethrectomy and adjuvant chemotherapy.
  • BACKGROUND: Primary urethral carcinoma is a very rare condition, and no large-scale experience with such cases has been published.
  • Treatment will therefore have to follow rules established for the treatment of similar conditions.
  • PATIENTS: Six cases of primary urethral carcinoma (5 male, 1 female) who had been treated at our institution between 1995 and 1999 were retrospectively analyzed.
  • In 3 male cases, a primary urothelial carcinoma of the distal urethra was treated by distal urethrectomy only.
  • In 3 other cases with locally advanced tumors and/or lymph node metastases surgical treatment was followed by adjuvant cisplatinum-containing chemotherapy.
  • RESULTS: In the 3 cases with distal urethral carcinoma, partial urethrectomy with preservation of the penis resulted in cure, with a follow-up of 12-71 months.
  • In the cases with advanced disease, adjuvant chemotherapy after surgery has resulted in complete remissions in all 3 cases, with a follow-up of 4-47 months at present.
  • CONCLUSIONS: In localized, noninvasive carcinoma of the distal male urethra, partial urethrectomy seems adequate and the avoidance of penile amputation justified.
  • In advanced cases, after local excision and lymphadenectomy adjuvant chemotherapy which by necessity must follow the guidelines established for the treatment of other urothelial or squamous cell malignancies seems to be beneficial.

  • [Title] Urethral recurrence after radical radiotherapy for bladder cancer.
  • PURPOSE: Following cystectomy for bladder cancer, orthotopic reconstruction may result in a decreased risk of urethral recurrence compared to cutaneous diversion.
  • We evaluate the rate of urethral recurrence after radical external beam radiotherapy.
  • Patients treated with chemotherapy were excluded from study.
  • Urethral recurrence developed in 7 (3.2%) cases and was detected within 18 months (median 10 months, range 3 months to 5 years) of followup in 5.
  • In 2 of these 7 cases recurrence developed in the prostatic urethra, and when these 2 cases were excluded from analysis the recurrence rate decreased to 2.3%.
  • A total of 64 men completed 5-year followup, with a 4.7% rate of urethral recurrence (3.1% excluding prostatic urethral recurrence).
  • Multifocal disease, bladder neck involvement, prostatic disease and cis were possible risk factors for urethral recurrence.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The risk of urethral recurrence after radical radiotherapy for transitional cell carcinoma of the bladder is comparable with that reported after orthotopic reconstruction.

  • [Title] Evaluation of carbon dioxide laser ablation combined with mitoxantrone and piroxicam treatment in dogs with transitional cell carcinoma.
  • CASE DESCRIPTION: 8 dogs that underwent carbon dioxide (CO2) laser ablation of transitional cell carcinoma in the bladder trigone and proximal portion of the urethra and were also treated with mitotranxone and piroxicam.
  • CLINICAL FINDINGS: Transitional cell carcinoma of the bladder frequently involves the trigone and urethra and can be difficult to manage surgically.
  • Dogs underwent laser ablation of the primary tumor and were treated with mitoxantrone at a dosage of 5 mg/m2)every 3 weeks for 4 treatments.
  • TREATMENT AND OUTCOME: Median and mean disease-free intervals were 200 and 280 days, respectively.
  • Median and mean survival times were 299 and 411 days, respectively.
  • Adverse treatment effects were observed in 2 dogs; signs included mild, self-limiting inappetance and lethargy.
  • The procedure appeared to be well tolerated; all treated dogs had rapid resolution of clinical signs of disease of the lower portion of the urinary tract.
  • CLINICAL RELEVANCE: Although survival times achieved with CO2 laser ablation and treatment with mitoxantrone and piroxicam were similar to survival times associated with chemotherapy alone, resolution of clinical signs was better with the combined treatment.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • BACKGROUND: The need for and intensity of follow-up to detect disease recurrence after radical cystectomy (RC) for transitional cell carcinoma (TCC) remains a matter for debate.
  • OBJECTIVE: To determine whether diagnosis of asymptomatic recurrence after RC by routine follow-up investigations confers a survival benefit versus symptomatic recurrence.
  • DESIGN, SETTING, AND PARTICIPANTS: Retrospective analysis of 479 patients with nonmetastatic bladder TCC receiving no neoadjuvant chemotherapy/radiation therapy and prospectively followed with a standardised protocol for a median 4.3 yr (range: 0.3-20.9) after RC at an academic tertiary referral centre.
  • The effects of age, nerve-sparing surgery, pathologic tumour stage, lymph node status, adjuvant chemotherapy, mode of recurrence diagnosis, and recurrence site on survival were assessed with multivariable Cox regression models.
  • Routine follow-up mostly detected lung metastases and urethral recurrences, while symptoms were predominantly the result of bone metastases and concomitant pelvic/distant recurrences.
  • Of 24 patients with urethral recurrences, 13 had carcinoma in situ (CIS).
  • Of these, 12 were successfully managed with urethra-sparing treatment, and 6 are still alive with no evidence of disease.
  • In multivariable analysis, mode of recurrence diagnosis and site of initial recurrence were the only independent predictors of CSS and OS.
  • Patients with recurrences detected by routine follow-up investigations and with secondary urothelial tumours as site of recurrence had a slightly but significantly higher survival probability.
  • Routine follow-up appears particularly effective in early detection of urethral CIS, which can be treated conservatively.

  • [Title] Prognostic factors in invasive bladder carcinoma treated by combined modality protocol (organ-sparing approach).
  • PURPOSE: The results of bladder sparing approach for the treatment of muscle-invasive bladder cancer, using a combination of transurethral resection (TUR), chemotherapy, and radiotherapy, are encouraging.
  • The aim of our study was to find out which pretreatment characteristics influence the survival of patients treated by organ sparing approach that would enable us to identify the patients most suitable for this type of treatment.
  • METHODS AND MATERIALS: The prognostic value of different factors, such as age, gender, performance status, hemoglobin level, clinical stage, histologic grade, presence of obstructive uropathy, and completeness of TUR, has been studied in 105 patients with invasive bladder cancer, who received a bladder sparing treatment in the period from 1988 to 1995.
  • They were treated with a combination of TUR, followed by 2-4 cycles of methotrexate, cisplatinum, and vinblastine polychemotherapy.
  • In complete responders the treatment was completed by radiotherapy (50 Gy to the bladder and 40 Gy to the regional lymph nodes), whereas nonresponders underwent cystectomy whenever feasible.
  • We believe that performance status best reflects the extent of disease and exerts significant influence on the extent and course of treatment, while obstructive uropathy is a good indicator of local spread of the disease, better than clinical T-stage.
  • CONCLUSION: Patients with muscle-invasive bladder cancer who are most likely to benefit from conservative treatment approach include those with good performance status, absence of hydronephrosis, and histologic low grade transitional cell carcinoma.

  • [Title] Phase II trial of pemetrexed as second-line therapy in patients with metastatic urothelial carcinoma.
  • PURPOSE: The purpose of this single-center phase II study was to determine the activity of pemetrexed administered as second-line therapy in patients with advanced urothelial carcinoma.
  • METHODS: Patients with advanced urothelial carcinoma that had relapsed after receiving perioperative chemotherapy, or progressed on first-line chemotherapy for metastatic disease, were eligible for enrollment.
  • Treatment was generally well tolerated, however, 2/13 patients developed febrile neutropenia.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Pemetrexed as second-line therapy in advanced urothelial carcinoma is associated with modest activity.
  • The role of this novel antifolate in chemotherapy-naïve patients warrants further investigation.

  • OBJECTIVES: We report one case of Metacronous transitional cell carcinoma (TCC) of the prostatic urethra in a patient with history of left nephroureterectomy 22 years before for urothelial neoplasia of the upper urinary tract.
  • METHODS: We describe the case of a 56-year-old male patient who presents with oligosymptomatic hematuria for several months.
  • Cystourethroscopy showed irregular hyperemic lesions in the prostatic urethra, cold biopsy of which showed urothelial atypia.
  • Pathology report of fragments of a posterior transurethral resection (TUR) was compatible with high-grade superficial transitional cell neoplasia.
  • Chemotherapy did not achieve significant results.
  • CONCLUSIONS: We emphasize the notable metachronous character of the transitional cell carcinoma of the prostatic urethra with respect to the upper urinary tract TCC.
  • We also point out the metastasic capacity of these neoplasias, as well as the bad prognosis of those cases in which chemotherapy is not effective.

  • [Title] Impact of intravesical chemotherapy on recurrence rate of recurrent superficial transitional cell carcinoma of the bladder: results of a meta-analysis.
  • BACKGROUND: The impact of in tranvesical chemotherapy on preventing recurrence of superficial transitional cell carcinoma of the bladder is controversial.
  • The objective of this report is to present a meta-analysis of the available clinical trial data to quantify the effect of intravesical chemotherapy on tumor recurrence following trans-urethral resection (TURB) in patients with recurrent superficial bladder cancer.
  • METHODS: A prospective study protocol outlining a meta-analysis was developed followed by a thorough search of the existing published literature using strict eligibility criteria.
  • RESULTS: Combining all 8 studies using 1 year recurrence as the outcome measure yielded a Peto odds ratio (ORp) of 0.62, demonstrating a 38% reduction in one year recurrence among patients treated with intravesical chemotherapy versus TURB alone.
  • Using 2 and 3 year recurrence as the outcome measure yielded ORp's of 0.46 and 0.35 respectively, favoring TURB + intravesical chemotherapy versus TURB alone.
  • Sensitivity analyses showed that drug type appeared to account for the observed heterogeneity with a stratified analysis demonstrating that adriamycin is less effective in reducing subsequent tumor recurrences than all other drugs studied.
  • CONCLUSION: Intravesical chemotherapy appears to have a major impact on decreasing the chance of recurrence of recurrent superficial bladder cancer.
  • These data are in contrast to prior analyses suggesting only modest efficacy of such treatment in this clinical setting.

  • [Title] Superficial bladder cancer therapy.
  • Bladder cancer treatment remains a challenge despite significant improvements in preventing disease progression and improving survival.
  • Intravesical therapy has been used in the management of superficial transitional cell carcinoma (TCC) of the urinary bladder (i.e.
  • Ta, T1, and carcinoma in situ) with specific objectives which include treating existing or residual tumor, preventing recurrence of tumor, preventing disease progression, and prolonging survival.
  • The initial clinical stage and grade remain the main determinant factors in survival regardless of the treatment.
  • Prostatic urethral mucosal involvement with bladder cancer can be effectively treated with Bacillus Calmette-Guerin (BCG) intravesical immunotherapy.
  • Intravesical chemotherapy reduces short-term tumor recurrence by about 20%, and long-term recurrence by about 7%, but has not reduced progression or mortality.
  • Presently, BCG immunotherapy remains the most effective treatment and prophylaxis for TCC (Ta, T1, CIS) and reduces tumor recurrence, disease progression, and mortality.
  • Interferons, Keyhole-limpet hemocyanin (KLH), bropirimine and Photofrin-Photodynamic Therapy (PDT) are under investigation in the management of TCC and early results are encouraging.
  • This review highlights and summarizes the recent advances in therapy for superficial TCC.

  • [Title] [Primary urothelial carcinoma with sarcomatous transformation of the prostate].
  • A small papillary tumor at the prostatic urethra was found by cystourethroscopy.
  • Then, we performed transurethral resection of the tumor and trans-perineal needle biopsy of the prostate, and diagnosed him as primary urothelial carcinoma of the prostate.
  • Following neo-adjuvant chemotherapy(MVAC), the patient was treated with radical cystoprostatectomy.
  • The histopathological examination showed urothelial carcinoma with concomitant sarcomatous transformation.
  • He was treated with the second-line chemotherapy using paclitaxel and gemcitabin combined with the radiation therapy, resulting in the disappearance of the tumor.

  • CIS is a flat, high-grade, non-invasive microscopic urothelial carcinoma.
  • CIS is classified as primary, secondary or concurrent, when occurred as isolated CIS without cuncurrent papillary tumors, or detected during the follow-up of patients with a previous papillary tumor, or finally in the presence of bladder neoplasm.
  • BCG is widely established as the treatment of choice for CIS with a success rate of approximately 70%.
  • BCG reduces the risk of progression of CIS into invasive carcinoma in 30 to 50% of cases.
  • Direct and prolonged contact between the urothelium and BCG is a prerequisite for successful therapy.
  • Discovery of CIS in the prostatic or membranous urethra represents an ominous sign.
  • CIS may be present only in the epithelial lining of the prostatic urethra or in the ducts, or in the worst case it may be found in the prostatic tissue stroma.
  • Urethral involvement by CIS is at high risk of tumor progression and development of metastases due to reduced thickness of lamina propria and absence of muscolaris mucosa.
  • 83 patients, enrolled from 1/1996 to 12/2005 at our urological department with CIS: primary (focal and multifocal) in 25, secondary in 7 and cuncurrent in 51 (associated with T1bG3 cancer in 37 cases), and urethral CIS in 5 and conservatively treated by TUR and intravescical instillations of BCG, 4 developed afterwords only invasive cancer of the urethra in the absence of bladder involvement.
  • In 2 cases cancer arised from the prostatic fossa after TURP, in 1 from membranous urethra and in the last from prostatic ducts.
  • Among the 4 patients, 3 were treated by cystoprostatourethrectomy and Platinum-based chemotherapy, 1 refused surgical treatment.
  • We conclude that prostatic/urethral involvement during follow-up after successful intravesical treatment with BCG in CIS represents a high risk of developing invasive and incontrolled cancer.
