Cystectomy: Used for excision of the urinary bladder.Urinary Diversion: Temporary or permanent diversion of the flow of urine through the ureter away from the URINARY BLADDER in the presence of a bladder disease or after cystectomy. There is a variety of techniques: direct anastomosis of ureter and bowel, cutaneous ureterostomy, ileal, jejunal or colon conduit, ureterosigmoidostomy, etc. (From Campbell's Urology, 6th ed, p2654)Urinary Bladder Neoplasms: Tumors or cancer of the URINARY BLADDER.Carcinoma, Transitional Cell: A malignant neoplasm derived from TRANSITIONAL EPITHELIAL CELLS, occurring chiefly in the URINARY BLADDER; URETERS; or RENAL PELVIS.Urinary Reservoirs, Continent: Structures which collect and store urine and are emptied by catheterization of a cutaneous stoma or internal diversion to the urethra. The reservoirs are surgically created during procedures for urinary diversion.Ovarian Cysts: General term for CYSTS and cystic diseases of the OVARY.Muscle Neoplasms: Tumors or cancer located in muscle tissue or specific muscles. They are differentiated from NEOPLASMS, MUSCLE TISSUE which are neoplasms composed of skeletal, cardiac, or smooth muscle tissue, such as MYOSARCOMA or LEIOMYOMA.Ureterostomy: Surgical formation of an opening in the ureter for external drainage of the urine; cutaneous route utilizes a ureteral orifice emerging through the skin.Urachus: An embryonic structure originating from the ALLANTOIS. It is a canal connecting the fetal URINARY BLADDER and the UMBILICUS. It is normally converted into a fibrous cord postnatally. When the canal fails to be filled and remains open (patent urachus), urine leaks through the umbilicus.Urethral Neoplasms: Cancer or tumors of the URETHRA. Benign epithelial tumors of the urethra usually consist of squamous and transitional cells. Primary urethral carcinomas are rare and typically of squamous cells. Urethral carcinoma is the only urological malignancy that is more common in females than in males.Laparoscopy: A procedure in which a laparoscope (LAPAROSCOPES) is inserted through a small incision near the navel to examine the abdominal and pelvic organs in the PERITONEAL CAVITY. If appropriate, biopsy or surgery can be performed during laparoscopy.Urinary Bladder: A musculomembranous sac along the URINARY TRACT. URINE flows from the KIDNEYS into the bladder via the ureters (URETER), and is held there until URINATION.Robotics: The application of electronic, computerized control systems to mechanical devices designed to perform human functions. Formerly restricted to industry, but nowadays applied to artificial organs controlled by bionic (bioelectronic) devices, like automated insulin pumps and other prostheses.Treatment Outcome: Evaluation undertaken to assess the results or consequences of management and procedures used in combating disease in order to determine the efficacy, effectiveness, safety, and practicability of these interventions in individual cases or series.Urothelium: The epithelial lining of the URINARY TRACT.Lymph Node Excision: Surgical excision of one or more lymph nodes.

For surgery of the male genitalia, UROLOGIC SURGICAL PROCEDURES, MALE is available.Neoplasm Staging: Methods which attempt to express in replicable terms the extent of the neoplasm in the patient.Administration, Intravesical: The instillation or other administration of drugs into the bladder, usually to treat local disease, including neoplasms.Uroplakin II: A uroplakin subtype that heterodimerizes with UROPLAKIN IA to form a component of the asymmetric unit membrane found in urothelial cells.Operative Time: The duration of a surgical procedure in hours and minutes.Ovarian Diseases: Pathological processes of the OVARY.Retrospective Studies: Studies used to test etiologic hypotheses in which inferences about an exposure to putative causal factors are derived from data relating to characteristics of persons under study or to events or experiences in their past. The essential feature is that some of the persons under study have the disease or outcome of interest and their characteristics are compared with those of unaffected persons.Neoplasm Recurrence, Local: The local recurrence of a neoplasm following treatment. It arises from microscopic cells of the original neoplasm that have escaped therapeutic intervention and later become clinically visible at the original site.Salpingectomy: Excision of one or both of the FALLOPIAN TUBES.Endometriosis: A condition in which functional endometrial tissue is present outside the UTERUS. It is often confined to the PELVIS involving the OVARY, the ligaments, cul-de-sac, and the uterovesical peritoneum.Chemotherapy, Adjuvant: Drug therapy given to augment or stimulate some other form of treatment such as surgery or radiation therapy. Adjuvant chemotherapy is commonly used in the therapy of cancer and can be administered before or after the primary treatment.Urology: A surgical specialty concerned with the study, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases of the urinary tract in both sexes, and the genital tract in the male. Common urological problems include urinary obstruction, URINARY INCONTINENCE, infections, and UROGENITAL NEOPLASMS.Pyonephrosis: Distention of KIDNEY with the presence of PUS and suppurative destruction of the renal parenchyma. It is often associated with renal obstruction and can lead to total or nearly total loss of renal function.Urologic Neoplasms: Tumors or cancer of the URINARY TRACT in either the male or the female.Neoadjuvant Therapy: Preliminary cancer therapy (chemotherapy, radiation therapy, hormone/endocrine therapy, immunotherapy, hyperthermia, etc.) that precedes a necessary second modality of treatment.Prognosis: A prediction of the probable outcome of a disease based on a individual's condition and the usual course of the disease as seen in similar situations.Culdoscopy: Endoscopic examination, therapy or surgery of the female pelvic viscera by means of an endoscope introduced into the pelvic cavity through the posterior vaginal fornix.Ureter: One of a pair of thick-walled tubes that transports urine from the KIDNEY PELVIS to the URINARY BLADDER.Echinococcosis, Hepatic: Liver disease caused by infections with parasitic tapeworms of the genus ECHINOCOCCUS, such as Echinococcus granulosus or Echinococcus multilocularis.

Level of retinoblastoma protein expression correlates with p16 (MTS-1/INK4A/CDKN2) status in bladder cancer. (1/407)

Recent studies have shown that patients whose bladder cancer exhibit overexpression of RB protein as measured by immunohistochemical analysis do equally poorly as those with loss of RB function. We hypothesized that loss of p16 protein function could be related to RB overexpression, since p16 can induce transcriptional downregulation of RB and its loss may lead to aberrant RB regulation. Conversely, loss of RB function has been associated with high p16 protein expression in several other tumor types. In the present study RB negative bladder tumors also exhibited strong nuclear p16 staining while each tumor with strong, homogeneous RB nuclear staining were p16 negative, supporting our hypothesis. To expand on these immunohistochemical studies additional cases were selected in which the status of the p16 encoding gene had been determined at the molecular level. Absent p16 and high RB protein expression was found in the tumors having loss of heterozygosity within 9p21 and a structural change (mutation or deletion) of the remaining p16 encoding gene allele, confirming the staining results. These results strongly support the hypothesis that the RB nuclear overexpression recently associated with poor prognosis in bladder cancer is also associated with loss of p16 function and implies that loss of p16 function could be equally deleterious as RB loss in bladder and likely other cancers.  (+info)

Proteomics and immunohistochemistry define some of the steps involved in the squamous differentiation of the bladder transitional epithelium: a novel strategy for identifying metaplastic lesions. (2/407)

Here, we present a novel strategy for dissecting some of the steps involved in the squamous differentiation of the bladder urothelium leading to squamous cell carcinomas (SCCs). First, we used proteomic technologies and databases (http://biobase.dk/cgi-bin/celis) to reveal proteins that were expressed specifically by fresh normal urothelium and three SCCs showing no urothelial components. Thereafter, antibodies against some of the differentially expressed proteins as well as a few known keratinocyte markers were used to stain serial cryostat sections (immunowalking) of biopsies obtained from bladder cystectomies of two of the SCC-bearing patients (884-1 and 864-1). Because bladder cancer is a field disease, we surmised that the urothelium of these patients may exhibit a spectrum of abnormalities ranging from early metaplastic stages to invasive disease. Immunohistochemical analysis revealed three types of non-keratinizing metaplastic lesions (types 1-3) that did not express keratins 7, 8, 18, and 20 (expressed by normal urothelium) and could be distinguished based on their staining with keratin 19 antibodies. Type 1 lesions showed staining of all cell layers in the epithelium (with differences in the staining intensity of the basal compartment), whereas type 2 lesions exhibited mainly basal cell staining. Type 3 lesions did not stain with keratin 19 antibodies. In cystectomy 884-1, type 3 lesions exhibited the same immunophenotype as the SCC and may be regarded as precursors to the tumor. Basal cells in these lesions did not express keratin 13, suggesting that the tumor, which was also keratin 13 negative, may have arisen from the expansion of these cells. Similar results were observed with cystectomy 864-1, which showed carcinoma in situ of the SCC type. SCC 864-1 exhibited both keratin 19-negative and -positive cells, implying that the tumor arose from the expansion of the basal cell compartment of type 2 and 3 lesions. Besides providing with a novel strategy for revealing metaplastic lesions, our studies have shown that it is feasible to apply powerful proteomic technologies to the analysis of complex biological samples under conditions that are as close as possible to the in vivo situation.  (+info)

Modification of the Kock's pouch for bladder replacement. (3/407)

AIM: To describe a modification of the Kock's pouch and present our clinical experience in its application. METHOD: After isolating an adequate ileal segment, the bowel is split by a longitudinal incision, with both ends remaining unopened for about 3-4 cm in length. Previously anastomozed ureters are inserted into the proximal end so that a nipple valve is created. The distal unsplit end serves for a direct anastomosis with the urethra. During the past 9 years, this surgery was performed in 41 patients who underwent radical cystectomy due to invasive carcinoma. Seventeen patients died for unknown reasons or were lost to follow-up. The remaining 24 were included in the follow-up for a period of 7 months to 6 years post surgery. RESULTS: Half of the patients included in the follow-up urinated spontaneously, with post void residuals less than 120 mL and no need for catheterization. Four patients did not urinate spontaneously and needed continuos catheterization, whereas 8 patients had post void residuals of 150-200 mL and needed catheterization once a day or once a week. None of the patients had a stricture at the site of ureteroileal anastomosis. CONCLUSION: We believe that our modification of the Kock's pouch makes the uretero-intestinal anastomosis much easier to perform; both ureters are inserted into the unsplit bowel end, thus preventing reflux; anastomosis with the urethra is performed under visual control; and direct anastomosis of widely opened distal end of the bowel reduces the possibility of scar stenosis.  (+info)

The effects of transurethral resection and cystoprostatectomy on dissemination of epithelial cells in the circulation of patients with bladder cancer. (4/407)

This study was undertaken to evaluate the risk of haematogenous dissemination of epithelial cells induced by endoscopic resection and/or cystoprostatectomy for transitional cell carcinoma of the bladder. Thirty-three patients were studied. Thirty-one had different stages and grades of bladder cancer and two patients had benign bladder conditions. Twenty-five cancer patients required transurethral resection of their bladder tumour. Of those, 20 had superficial disease (pTaG1-G2: n = 19; pT1G2: n = 1) and five had muscle invasive tumours (pT2G3: n = 2; pT3aG3: n = 1; pT4G3: n = 2). Five patients underwent radical cystoprostatectomy for muscle invasive cancers (pT2G3: n = 3; pT3bG3: n = 1; pT4G3: n = 1) and one man received chemotherapy for metastatic disease. Venous blood (10 ml) was obtained from the antecubital fossa in each patient, before and 1-2 h after completion of surgery, and prior to treatment in the metastatic patient. An indirect immunocytochemical technique was used to detect circulating epithelial cells after centrifugation on Ficoll gradient and fixation of mononuclear cells on slides, using a monoclonal antibody directed against three cytokeratins: CK8, CK18 and CK19. Circulating epithelial cells were detected only in the patient with metastatic disease. None of the other patients had evidence of epithelial circulating cells before or after surgery. The results suggest that irrespective of disease stage and grade, neither endoscopic nor open bladder surgery leads to detectable dissemination of urothelial cells in the peripheral circulation. These procedures are therefore unlikely to increase the risk of progression and metastasis in transitional cell carcinoma of the bladder.  (+info)

Outcome of postchemotherapy surgery after treatment with methotrexate, vinblastine, doxorubicin, and cisplatin in patients with unresectable or metastatic transitional cell carcinoma. (5/407)

PURPOSE: The role of postchemotherapy surgery for patients with metastatic transitional cell carcinoma (TCC) is controversial. We retrospectively analyzed our experience with patients who underwent postchemotherapy surgery after methotrexate, vinblastine, doxorubicin, and cisplatin (M-VAC) chemotherapy to assess an impact on long-term survival. PATIENTS AND METHODS: This report is based on the retrospective analysis of 203 patients with unresectable primary tumors or metastatic TCC, previously reported in five trials of M-VAC chemotherapy. Fifty patients underwent postchemotherapy surgery for suspected or known residual disease. Characteristics of patients selected for surgery, results of surgery, and the impact of surgery on survival were assessed. RESULTS: In 17 patients, no viable tumor was found at postchemotherapy surgery, pathologically confirming a complete response to chemotherapy. Three patients had unresectable residual TCC. In 30 patients, residual, viable TCC was completely resected, which resulted in a complete response to chemotherapy plus surgery. Ten (33%) of these 30 patients remained alive at 5 years, similar to results observed for patients who attained a complete response to chemotherapy alone (41%). Analysis by baseline extent of disease suggested that patients with unresectable primary tumors or with metastases restricted to lymph node sites were most likely to survive for 5 years. CONCLUSION: Postchemotherapy surgical resection of residual cancer may result in 5-year disease-free survival in some patients who would otherwise succumb to disease. Optimal candidates include patients whose prechemotherapy sites of disease are restricted to the primary or lymph node sites and who have a major response to chemotherapy.  (+info)

Neo-adjuvant chemotherapy and bladder preservation in locally advanced transitional cell carcinoma of the bladder. (6/407)

BACKGROUND: The possibility of bladder preservation as well as the utility of neo-adjuvant chemotherapy for invasive bladder cancer are controversial issues. The purpose of this study was the evaluation of neo-adjuvant M-VAC chemotherapy and bladder preservation in patients with locally advanced transitional cell carcinoma of the bladder. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Eighty-seven consecutive evaluable patients with T2-T4aNxM0 TCC of the bladder were treated with three cycles of neo-adjuvant M-VAC chemotherapy. After three cycles of M-VAC, 42 patients had TURB alone, 13 patients underwent partial cystectomy, and 32 patients were to undergo radical cystectomy. RESULTS: Forty (51%) patients were T0 at the TURB following M-VAC. Thirty (71%) patients who had chemotherapy and TURB alone are alive; at a median follow-up of 54+ months (8(+)-109+). Twenty-four (57%) have maintained an intact bladder. Of 13 responding patients with monofocal lesions who underwent partial cystectomy, 8 patients (62%) are alive with a functioning bladder, at a median follow-up of 80+ months (16-107+ months). At a follow-up of 32 months (7-121+ months), 20 (63%) patients in the radical cystectomy group are alive. In patients who had downstaging to T0 or superficial disease, median follow-up is 55 months (10-121+ months) and five-year survival is 71%. Patients who failed to respond (T2 or greater after chemotherapy), at a median follow-up of 24 months (7-103+ months), had five-year survival of only 29%. CONCLUSIONS: Bladder sparing in selected patients on the basis of response to neo-adjuvant chemotherapy is a feasible approach which must be confirmed in prospective randomized trials.  (+info)

Grading and staging of bladder carcinoma in transurethral resection specimens. Correlation with 105 matched cystectomy specimens. (7/407)

We compared the grading and staging of transurethral resection of the bladder (TURB) and cystectomy specimens for 105 patients who underwent radical cystectomy for urothelial carcinoma between 1980 and 1984. Of 105 patients, 96% underwent cystectomy within 100 days of TURB (median interval, 10 days). Grading was performed according to the 1998 World Health Organization/International Society of Urologic Pathology grading system and staging according to the 1997 TNM classification. Histologic grade was low-grade, 13; high-grade, 92 in TURB specimens; low-grade, 17; high-grade, 88 in cystectomy specimens. Pathologic stage was Ta, 15; T1, 55; and T2, 35 in TURB specimens; Ta, 5; T1, 19; T2, 19; T3, 46; and T4, 16 in cystectomy specimens. Histologic grade at TURB was associated with pathologic stage at cystectomy (P < .001). When all advanced-stage (muscle-invasive) carcinomas (pT2 or more) were considered together, 55 patients were understaged by TURB, 4 had higher stage in TURB than in cystectomy, and 46 were the same stage as by cystectomy. Forty-three of 55 patients with stage T1 carcinoma at TURB had advanced-stage carcinoma at cystectomy, including 34 who had extravesicular extension (pT3 or more). We found pathologic understanding by TURB occurs in a significant number of patients with bladder cancer; the newly proposed grading system predicted final pathologic stage.  (+info)

The role of adjuvant combination chemotherapy after cystectomy in locally advanced bladder cancer: what we do not know and why. (8/407)

BACKGROUND: Radical cystectomy is the standard treatment for patients with muscle invasive bladder cancer. Three to four cycles of adjuvant chemotherapy is widely used in patients with pT3-pT4a and/or pN+ M0 disease in an effort to delay recurrence and prolong survival. Although a number of clinical trials have been carried out, this paper questions whether the use of adjuvant combination chemotherapy is actually justified. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A review of published randomized trials of adjuvant cisplatin-containing combination chemotherapy in locally advanced bladder cancer was undertaken. Four trials including a total of 278 randomized patients were identified. RESULTS: Although these trials appear to show a significant difference in favor of adjuvant chemotherapy, serious methodological flaws were found. They have major deficiencies in terms of sample size, early stopping of patient entry, statistical analyses, reporting of results and drawing conclusions. CONCLUSIONS: These trials provide insufficient evidence to support the routine use of adjuvant chemotherapy in clinical practice due to small sample sizes, confusing analyses and terminology, and the reporting of questionable conclusions. Analyses of the duration of survival were either not done or were inconclusive and quality of life has not been considered. New large scale, multicenter trials are imperative in order to provide convincing results.  (+info)

Robot-assisted radical cystectomy (RARC) and open radical cystectomy (ORC) for bladder cancer appear comparable with some notable exceptions.
Radical cystectomy can improve outcomes among patients with muscle-invasive bladder cancer but appears to be underused in this patient population. These results were published in the Journal of the National Cancer Insitute.. The bladder is a hollow organ located in the pelvis. Its primary function is to store urine. The bladder has a muscular wall that allows it to get larger and smaller as urine is stored or emptied. Bladder cancer is diagnosed in roughly 50,000 men and 17,000 women annually in the United States.. Patients whose cancer has spread to deeper tissues in the bladder may be treated with a radical cystectomy, which is the surgical removal of the bladder and some nearby organs. Although guidelines commonly recommend cystectomy unless the patient is too ill to undergo the procedure, it appears that many patients with muscle-invasive bladder cancer do not undergo radical cystectomy.. Other treatments that may be used include chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy without radical ...
Infections of the bladder (cystitis) can affect the bladder, kidney and the connecting tubes. Sometimes this require a cystectomy, which a surgery to remove all or part of the bladder, requiring urinary diversion (the urine is flow is changed). When patients undergo a cystectomy, they are prone to having issues with their salt and water balance. They often require hydration during the surgery and while in hospital, but the choice of what the optimal crystalloid solution (ie. The balance of water and salt) is still unclear. In addition, it has been demonstrated that the influence of salt and water balance on gastrointestinal recovery after colonic surgery is clinically relevant: patients receiving less fluid and less sodium show faster recovery of gastrointestinal function, resulting in a shorter hospitalization time. This is of crucial importance in cystectomy patients because they are at risk for postoperative constipation (not able to pass stool regularly) or ileus (buildup or blockages in the ...

Radical cystectomy is a standard treatment option for stage II and stage III bladder cancer, and its effectiveness at prolonging survival increases if it is preceded by cisplatin-based multiagent chemotherapy. [1] [2] [3] [4] Radical cystectomy is accompanied by pelvic lymph node dissection and includes removal of the bladder, perivesical tissues, prostate, and seminal vesicles in men and removal of the uterus, tubes, ovaries, anterior vaginal wall, and urethra in women. [5] [6] [7] [8] Studies of outcomes after radical cystectomy report increased survival in patients who had more, rather than fewer, lymph nodes resected; whether this represents a therapeutic benefit of resecting additional nodes or stage migration is unknown. [9] There are no randomized controlled trials evaluating the therapeutic benefit of lymph node dissection in this setting.. Radical cystectomy is a major operation with a perioperative mortality rate of 2% to 3% when performed at centers of excellence. [6] [7] [8] ...
Purpose: To examine the accuracy of clinical staging and its effects on outcome in bladder cancer (BC) patients treated with radical cystectomy (RC), using a large national database. Methods and Materials: A total of 16,953 patients with BC without distant metastases treated with RC from 1998 to 2009 were analyzed. Factors associated with clinical-pathologic stage discrepancy were assessed by multivariate generalized estimating equation models. Survival analysis was conducted for patients treated between 1998 and 2004 (n=7270) using the Kaplan-Meier method and Cox proportional hazards models. Results: At RC 41.9% of patients were upstaged, whereas 5.9% were downstaged. Upstaging was more common in females, the elderly, and in patients who underwent a more extensive lymphadenectomy. Downstaging was less common in patients treated at community centers, in the elderly, and in Hispanics. Receipt of preoperative chemotherapy was highly associated with downstaging. Five-year overall survival rates for ...

Roger, 63, from Rayleigh, underwent surgery earlier this year after a scan detected a malignant growth in his bladder. He had first noticed blood in his urine last summer but tests came back negative. However, when the bleeding became heavier he was sent to Southend University Hospital for an endoscopy which discovered the cancer.. He said: "There was no option but to have the bladder removed.". He first underwent nine weeks of chemotherapy to improve the chances of a successful outcome and then became the first patient at Southend to have a laparoscopic radical cystectomy.. Southend University Hospital is the only hospital in Essex to perform laparoscopic radical cystectomies; the other nearest hospitals are in Cambridge, Norwich and London.. The surgery was performed by consultant urological surgeons Mr Mohantha Dooldeniya and Miss Helen Hegarty who have both been carrying out cystectomies by open surgery for several years..

For some patients, a new bladder (neo bladder) can be formed from the bowel. If this is possible for you, the surgeon will discuss this with you.. How else will my body be affected?. Having a cystectomy involves surgery to the bowel as well as the bladder. A small portion of the bowel is used to make the urostomy, so the bowel that is left for digestion and absorption is shorter. This means that for some people their motions become looser after this type of surgery. Also the vagina is narrower, and although intercourse may be uncomfortable at first in the long term it is usually possible to resume a normal sexual relationship.. There are obviously major changes for you that happen after a cystectomy and it is important that you should be able to return to as active a lifestyle as possible after this operation. This depends on how you feel mentally as well as physically. There are people for you to talk to at the hospital and there is a network of patients who have had this type of surgery done ...

OBJECTIVE The goals of the study is to evaluate the feasability of the total cystectomy for cancer infiltrating locally advanced of bladder and to evaluate perioperatitive morbidity and short-term results. PATIENTS AND METHODS We made a retrospective study concerning 12 first patients having profited from a total cystectomy for cancer infiltrating of the bladder in our hospital over one period of 1 year. The parameters of study were: the age at the time of the diagnosis, circumstances of the diagnosis, antecedents of the patient, the histological type and stage TNM before and after intervention, the type of derivation associated, duration of the intervention, the anesthesia, complications and morbidity per- and postoperational. We carried out calculations of average and frequency for the data analysis. RESULTS The mean age was 51 years (extreme: 32; 83). They were nine men and three women. The circumstances of diagnosis were dominated by the total hematuria and in less frequency by the bladder

Removal of the bladder (cystectomy) is a complex surgical procedure. Cystectomy is most commonly performed for bladder cancer, but its also done for other cancers or conditions such as birth defects, trauma or certain neurological disorders.
Orthotopic neo- bladder in women Manlio Schettini Summary Introduction: Radical cystectomy is the most effective treatment madality for high grade urinary bladder carcinoma and orthotopic reconstruction is the better urinary diversion modality also in women. Material and methods: From 2002 to 2007 we performed 14 radical cystectomies followed by orthotopic reconstruction in women aged between 47 and 68 years (mean age 56) affected by urinary bladder carcinoma. Our reconstructive technique requires the preparation of two strips of the recti muscles fascia, the sectioning of the bladder neck and, when the uterus is present, hysteroannessiectomy and cystectomy en block leaving intact the lateral and inferior vaginal walls. The pelvic floor is stabilized by a colposacropexis with a prosthesis and placing an omental flap over the prosthesis The orthotopic reconstruction is achieved via a neobladder according to the Padovana technique. The ureters are anastomized to the neobladder and splinted with ...
In this operation, an instrument (resectoscope) is inserted through the urethra and into the bladder. A small wire loop on the end of the instrument then removes the tumor by cutting it or burning it with electrical current (fulguration). This is usually performed for superficial cancers that are limited in area and are not believed to have invaded deeply into the bladder wall.. Radical cystectomy: In this operation, the entire bladder is removed, as well as its surrounding lymph nodes and other structures that may contain cancer. This is usually performed for cancers that have invaded through the bladder wall or for superficial cancers that extend over much of the bladder. Occasionally, the bladder is removed to relieve severe urinary symptoms.. Click here to know more about laparoscopic cystectomy (keyhole surgery).

MIBC is typically managed with perioperative chemotherapy and radical cystectomy with extended pelvic lymph node dissection [14], yet almost 50% of such patients will eventually succumb to disease progression [14,15]. In addition, even for survivors, quality of life is often compromised due to the urinary diversion, erectile dysfunction, or other functional concerns [16,17]. Availability of prognostic biomarkers would greatly improve our management of patients with bladder cancer by facilitating better patient selection and individualized risk stratification. Previous efforts have focused primarily on cell cycle regulators, but the clinical utility of currently available markers remains limited. For instance, Margulis and colleagues [18] studied Ki-67, a marker of proliferation, after radical cystectomy and reported an independent association of high Ki-67 labeling index with disease recurrence and cancer-specific mortality. Another meta-analysis [19] pooled the results of 16 studies which ...

The participants interviewed in this study experienced the smoking and alcohol intervention as a relevant offer in relation to major bladder cancer surgery. The intervention and surgery were the main factors supporting cessation; both the timing and the setting were pointed out as important and the empathic approach inherent in the intervention and the contact to the counselors was also experienced as supportive. Despite the fact that cessation during hospitalization felt easy for all participants, returning to everyday life challenged continued smoking abstinence and reduced alcohol intake in most participants.. There are some limitations to this study. Participants were all recruited from the intervention group in the STOP-OP study and are likely to represent a somewhat motivated group, having voluntarily taken part in the STOP-OP trial. Furthermore only one woman was interviewed. As bladder cancer is four times more likely to occur in men [41], we found this distribution of gender ...
The procedure is performed under general anesthesia, and can take upto 3 to 4 hours. For open surgery, the surgeon will make a long incision in the lower abdomen area to access the bladder and lymph nodes. For laparoscopic surgery, several small incisions are made in the lower belly. A laparoscope containing camera is inserted from one of the cuts, and surgical tools are inserted from other incisions. The surgeon has to create a passage for the urine to pass out of the body. This can be done using ...
Inclusion criteria for the review were clearly defined and three relevant data sources were searched. It was unclear whether language restrictions were imposed and so the risk of language bias was uncertain. Publication bias was assessed and was not detected with hospital volume, although the meaningfulness of this assessment was questionable as there were fewer than 10 studies. Attempts were made to reduce reviewer error and bias during study selection; it was unclear whether any similar attempts were made for quality assessment and data extraction. Quality assessment indicated that most studies were of good methodological quality, had large sample sizes and controlled for confounding factors. Studies were combined using random-effects meta-analysis, although moderate statistical heterogeneity remained in some of the analyses. There were notable differences in the cut-off points for volume across studies, with considerable overlap between low- and high-volume definitions across studies, which ...

The results presented in this manuscript confirm and extend our previous miRNA-expression profiling carried out by high-throughput sequencing (5). The comparison of the samples derived from the corresponding nonmalignant tissue adjacent to prostate carcinoma and healthy prostate tissue derived from cystectomy specimens yielded essentially the same expression profiles as previously described for corresponding normal prostate tissue (5). Likewise, the majority of all deregulated miRNAs were repeatedly found in this analysis, indicating that the methods yield reproducible results. The overall expression of miR-375 increased in the tumor samples compared with normal tissue irrespective of the tumor stage. We found an initial increase from normal to pT2 (pN0), then a slight drop from pT2 (pN0) to pT3 (pN0), and then a strong increase in the pN1 samples. This increase in miR-375 was initially reported in our earlier study (5), as well as by Schaefer and colleagues (24) and Martens-Uzunova and ...
In a study of 3,879 patients who underwent radical cystectomy to treat bladder cancer, 3.6 percent were diagnosed with a venous thromboembolism (VTE) -- which occurs when a blood clot forms in a vein, potentially breaking loose and traveling to the lung -- within one month of their surgical admission date.

Patients and Methods: A retrospective review was performed of the 412 consecutive patients who underwent radical cystectomy and urinary diversion for transitional cell carcinoma of the bladder between 1986 and 2004. A total of 294 patients were enrolled in this study. We investigated the impact of various clinical and pathological features on urethral recurrence by univariate and multivariate analysis. Results: Urethral recurrence developed in 13 patients (4.4%) and the 5-year urethral ...
Partial or segmental cystectomy is a treatment that involves the surgical removal of the part of the bladder (tumour bearing area) and surrounding bladder wall.. An ideal patient for partial cystectomy is one who has a normally functioning bladder with good capacity, a first-time tumor with a single tumor, and a tumor location in an area that allows a 1- to 2-cm margin of resection, such as at the dome. A urachal adenocarcinoma that occurs at the dome of the bladder and may extend up the urachus and toward the umbilicus is another indication for partial cystectomy and other tumours like primary pheo chromocytoma and osteo sarcoma of the urinary bladder and tumour in the diverticulum of the bladder are also may be treated by partial cystectomy.. ...
The aim of the treatment of invasive bladder cancer with radical cystectomy and subsequent urinary diversion is to combine a safe oncological procedure with a satisfactory quality of life. Radical cystectomy is the treatment of choice for all patients with recurrent or multifocal high grade T1 bladder cancer, T1 tumors with high risk of progression, failure of Bacillus Calmette-Guérin treatment and muscle-invasive bladder cancer. Radical cystectomy offers excellent recurrence-free and cancer-specific survival rates as well as local tumor control in patients with organ-confined and node-negative diseases. Tumor control in non-organ-confined tumors is still satisfactory with long term recurrence-free survival (RFS) rates of about 50%. Nerve-sparing cystectomy is of importance for lower urinary tract function, including continence rates after orthotopic urinary diversion and for sexual function in males and females. Orthotopic urinary reconstruction using a neobladder achieves good continence ...
Background Several techniques have been described in liver hydatid disease surgery, with most well known partial cystectomy, capitonage and introflexion.
Results: We enrolled in the FT group 11 (55%) patients scheduled to RC with ileal conduit diversion, and 9 patients (45%) scheduled to orthotopic neobladder (Studer) substitution, while a numerically equivalent population was enrolled in the control group, matched according to age at surgery, BMI, gender, ASA score, CCI, preoperative stage and type of urinary diversion. No statistically significant difference was found in terms of pre-operatory and intra-operatory domains. Median overall age was 71 years (Inter Quartile Range - IQR: 63-76) and mean operatory time was 276 ± 57 minutes. Hospitalization time was significantly reduced in the FT group, considering oralization and canalization items we found a significant advantage in the FT group. No statistically significant difference was found in the control of the post-operatory pain. We found no difference, in terms of both early and late complications ratio, among the two populations. Complications graded Clavien ≥ 3 were found in 4 patients ...

Purpose: Orthotopic urinary diversion via the ileal neobladder is the preferred form of bladder reconstruction in patients of both sexes undergoing cystectomy at the University of Ulm. A total of 754 patients undergoing this procedure from April 1986 through September 2003 were analyzed. Material and Methods: Complications were assessed, tabulated, subdivided into early (3 months or less postoperatively) and late types, and further categorized with respect to relationship to neobladder construction. The evaluation was realized via a patient questionnaire and phone interviews with patients, relatives and physicians. Results: The 3-months mortality rate was 3 %. There were 257 neobladder related early complications (34 %) and 299 late complications (40 %). 119 early complications (16 %) and 32 late complications (4 %) were dependent on the exclusion of the bowel segment. Early complications of the pelvic lymphadenectomy occurred in 134 cases (18 %) and late complications in 30 cases (4 %). There ...

If radical cystectomy remains the standard of care for muscle invasive bladder cancer, consequences of this surgical procedure are often harsh. Over the past years, concurrent chemo-radiotherapy has imposed itself as an alternative treatment. Published data on concomitant radiochemotherapy (radiotherapy/cisplatin or radiotherapy/cisplatin/5-fluorouracil combinations) showed local control rates with bladder preservation at 5 years ranging from 40% to 65% according to the disease stage, and overall survival probabilities ranging from 40% to 50% at 5 years. In order to improve local and systemic prognosis, evaluation of other chemotherapy agents with higher radiosensitizing effect, such as gemcitabine, is justified. Gemcitabine possesses its own anti-cancer activities on urothelial diseases and has a synergetic activity with cisplatin. The investigators completed a monocenter phase I study combining radiotherapy, cisplatin, and twice-weekly

INTRODUCTION Bladder leiomyomas (BL) are rare. Most publications regarding these tumours are reports of isolated cases; therefore they dont allow an evaluation of diagnostic and treatment procedures. MATERIAL & METHODS We preformed a pooled analysis of 90 cases of BL reported in the literature. RESULTS Mean age was 45.3 (19 to 85 years), 68 (75.6%) were women. Filling symptoms were the most frequently reported (50%), followed by voiding symptoms (24.4%). Twenty four patients (26.7%) were asymptomatic. Tumours were endoluminal in 46 patients (51.1%), intramural in 27 (30%) and extravesical in 15 (16.7%). A laparotomy was performed in 56 patients (62.2%), with enucleation in 29 (32.2%), partial cystectomy in 25 (27.8%) and total cystectomy in 2 (2.2%). A transurethral resection was preformed in 27 (30%) and a transvaginal resection in 5 (5.6%). Two patients underwent conservative treatment. In 3 cases there were reports of recurrence and one patient got a vesicovaginal fistula. CONCLUSIONS Although
Our surgeons are experienced with robotic-assisted laparoscopy for cystectomy and urinary diversion. Dr. Schanne is one of a select few robotic surgeons in the region to offer robotic cystectomy with robotic ileal loop urinary diversion for bladder cancer. Robotic surgery has advantages over traditional open surgery that include less pain and faster recovery.. Even if we remove all the cancer that can be seen at the time of the surgery, you may be given chemotherapy to kill any cancer cells that are left. Treatment given after surgery to lower the risk that the cancer will come back is called adjuvant therapy.. ...

Background: Disease surveillance in patients with bladder cancer is important for early diagnosis of progression and metastasis and for optimal therapeutic treatment.. Experimental procedures: Droplet digital PCR (ddPCR) assays were developed and tumour DNA from two patient cohorts was screened for FGFR3 and PIK3CA hotspot mutations. One cohort (NMIBC cohort) included 363 patients with non-muscle invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC). Another cohort (Cx cohort) included 468 patients with bladder cancer undergoing radical cystectomy. Urine supernatants (NMIBC cohort: n=216, Cx cohort: n=27) and plasma samples (NMIBC cohort: n=39, Cx cohort: n=27) from patients harbouring mutations were subsequently screened using ddPCR assays. Liquid biopsies were collected from 2003-2015 with up to 11.3 years of follow-up for the NMIBC cohort and from 1995-2009 with up to 13.5 years of follow-up for the Cx cohort.. Results and limitations: In total, 36% of the patients in the NMIBC cohort (129/363) and 11% of the ...
Patients undergoing urinary diversion are at high risk for complications in the perioperative period. The exact cause of these complications remains poorly defined but is likely multifactorial. Current efforts to optimize patients in the perioperative period, including prehabilitation, smoking cessation, recognition and treatment of comorbid conditions and malnutrition, immunonutrition supplementation, carbohydrate loading, and prevention of known complications and implementation of enhanced recovery after surgery pathways, seem beneficial in helping to improve outcomes in this at-risk population. ...
Stanford University School of Medicine researchers have discovered a single type of cell in the lining of the bladder that is responsible for most cases of invasive bladder cancer.
Background: Radical cystectomy (RC) is used to treat select patients with T1 high-grade (T1HG) bladder cancer. However, population-level utilization trends and outcomes for these patients are not well-known. We sought to evaluate treatment patterns and clinicopathologic outcomes of RC for T1HG bladder cancer. Patients and Methods: Using the National Cancer Data Base (NCDB) for 1998-2012, we conducted a retrospective cohort study of patients with clinical T1HG bladder cancer. The prevalence of RC used to treat T1HG bladder cancer from 1998-2012 was determined. For years 2010-2012, demographic and cancer-related factors were described and regression analysis was used to examine associations with RC. Oncologic outcomes of RC were described and related to mortality using Cox proportional hazards regression. Results: Treatment of T1HG bladder cancer with RC nearly doubled, from 5.5% during 1998-2000 to 9.9%, during 2010-2012. For 2010-2012, 18,277 patients with T1HG bladder cancer were analyzed. ...

The case of a 62-year-old woman who developed squamous cell carcinoma of the bladder 16 years after a kidney transplant is reported here. After the transplant, immunosuppressive therapy was maintained with cyclosporin A (200 mg/day) and the patients serum creatinine level was 0.9 mg/dL. She was diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma of the bladder 16 years later and underwent radical cystectomy with an orthotopic ileal neobladder. The Studer technique was used and the afferent ileal loop was anastomosed to the graft ureter. The postoperative course was uneventful. At the 6-month follow-up visit, the patient showed no evidence of recurrence. Her serum creatinine level was 1.0 mg/dL. The patient was continent during the day and the night. This case shows that the construction of an orthotopic ileal neobladder after cystectomy is safe and feasible in kidney transplant recipients ...

Purpose: To investigate the clinical management and outcome of patients with muscle-invasive bladder cancer with clinical lymph node involvement, using longitudinal nationwide population-based data.. Methods: In the Bladder Cancer Data Base Sweden (BladderBaSe), treatment and survival in patients with urinary bladder cancer clinical stage T2-T4 N + M0 diagnosed between 1997 and 2014 was investigated. Patients´ characteristics were studied in relation to TNM classification, curative or palliative treatment, cancer-specific (CSS) and overall survival (OS). Age at diagnosis was categorised as ≤60, 61-70, 71-80 and ,80 years, and time periods were stratified as follows: 1997-2001, 2002-2005, 2006-2010 and 2011-2014.. Results: There were 786 patients (72% males) with a median age of 71 years (interquartile range = 64-79 years). The proportion of patients with high comorbidity increased over time. Despite similar low comorbidity, curative treatment was given to 44% and to 70% of those in older (,70 ...
As reported by Rebouissou and colleagues in Science Translational Medicine, a subset of muscle-invasive bladder cancers that present with a basal-like phenotype is associated with poorer survival, EGFR pathway activation, and sensitivity to EGFR inhibition.. Assessment of data from 383 tumors revealed that 23.5% displayed a basal-like phenotype characterized by expression of epithelial basal cell markers and shorter survival. These basal-like tumors exhibited activation of the EGFR pathway associated with frequent EGFR gains and activation of an EGFR autocrine loop. The tumor cells were found to be sensitive to anti-EGFR therapy using both a 40-gene expression classifier derived from human tumors to identify bladder cancer cell lines and a mouse model of chemically induced bladder cancer corresponding to human basal-like bladder cancer.. The authors concluded, "Our findings provide preclinical proof of concept that anti-EGFR therapy can be used to target a subset of particularly aggressive ...
Although the introduction of novel targeted agents has improved patient outcomes in several human cancers, no such advance has been achieved in muscle-invasive bladder cancer (MIBC). However, recent sequencing efforts have begun to dissect the complex genomic landscape of MIBC, revealing distinct molecular subtypes and offering hope for implementation of targeted therapies.
Net benefit is equal to absolute reduction in VTE risk minus absolute increase in bleeding risk (with twice the weight for major bleeding as for VTE). For instance, in medium-risk patients undergoing open radical cystectomy, use of pharmacological prophylaxis, such as LMWH, beginning first post-surgery day for four weeks decreases absolute risk of VTE by 29 per 1,000 and increases absolute risk of bleeding by 0.8 per 1,000 (Figure 1). As twice the weight for major bleeding was assigned as for VTE, the net benefit is 27 per 1,000.. Laparoscopic radical prostatectomy. R4. For patients undergoing laparoscopic radical prostatectomy without pelvic lymph node dissection (PLND), for those at low risk of VTE, the Panel recommends against use of pharmacologic prophylaxis (strong, moderate-quality evidence) and suggests against use of mechanical prophylaxis (weak, low-quality evidence); for those at moderate and high risk, the Panel suggests against use of pharmacologic prophylaxis (weak, moderate or high ...

Purpose: Chemoradiation therapy (CRT) is now widely recognized as bladder-preserving therapy for muscle-invasive bladder cancer (MIBC). However, some patients who fail CRT may miss the chance to be cured by cystectomy. Therefore, it is important to select patients with MIBC who are expected to have a good response to CRT. Several reports indicate that the excision repair cross-complementing group 1 (ERCC1) gene is associated with resistance to cisplatin and radiation therapy. In this study, we examined the correlation between ERCC1 and CRT in vitro and in vivo in bladder cancer. Experimental Design: Bladder cancer cell lines T24, 5637, Cl8-2 (multi-drug-resistant subline of T24), and CDDP10-3 (cisplatin-resistant subline of T24) were used for in vitro assays to measure ERCC1 expression level and growth inhibition with cisplatin or irradiation (IR). We then examined by immunohistochemistry whether ERCC1 nuclear staining correlates with the efficacy of CRT using cisplatin in 22 patients with MIBC. ...
EGFR expression at high levels has been shown to be an independent prognostic indicator of stage progression and poor survival in patients with bladder cancer (11, 12, 13) . Muscle-invasive TCC carries a poor prognosis, and despite radical cystectomy or radiotherapy the overall 5-year survival is only in the order of 50%. Therefore, new targeted therapeutic strategies are needed to improve the outlook for this group of patients. In this study, we attempted to evaluate the therapeutic potential of a small molecule inhibitor of EGFR, gefitinib (Iressa, ZD1839) in preclinical models of human bladder cancer that express EGFR. Although 10 μm gefitinib was able to inhibit DNA synthesis and reduce viable cell number and the S-phase fraction in all three of the EGFR-expressing human bladder cancer cell lines used in this study, a dose-dependent reduction of these parameters by 1 μm and 10 μm gefitinib was only observed in 253J B-V cells. It would appear, therefore, that 253J B-V cells are more ...

A urostomy is an opening in the abdomen created by a surgical procedure (radical cystectomy) to allow urine to flow to the outside of the body. This may be needed when a diseased or damaged bladder has to be removed. The urostomy (or ostomy) creates an opening that is called a stoma.. Wound, ostomy, and continence nurses (WOCNs) are available in some medical centres to help you learn how to care for your ostomy. Talk with your surgeon about meeting with an ostomy nurse after your surgery.. It takes time to adjust to having a urostomy. But with time after surgery, you will be able to work, participate in sports and physical activities, be intimate with your partner, and resume your social life.. Immediately after your surgery, activities such as driving and lifting will be restricted to allow the stoma to heal. After 2 to 3 weeks, you should be able to resume normal activities. With your pouch in place, you can still swim, hike, camp, and play tennis. Contact sports may cause injury to the stoma ...

Patients with muscle-invasive bladder cancer often benefit from chemotherapy before surgery to remove the tumor, but a test of one regimen by researchers at Fox Chase Cancer Center was halted when too many people experienced serious side effects such as heart attacks and blood clots in the legs and lungs.
The vast majority of patients with muscle-invasive bladder cancer do not receive chemotherapy, despite evidence of a significant survival benefit, investigators concluded after a 2,000-case review.
Bladder cancer treatment is dependent on the depth of invasion through the bladder wall. Superficial bladder cancers are treated by resection through the urethra, known as transurethral resection of bladder tumor (TURBT). Under general anesthesia, a scope is inserted into the urethra to navigate the anatomic tube through which the urine exits the body.For bladder cancer that invades into the muscle of the bladder wall, the gold standard therapy is surgical removal of the entire bladder (radical cystectomy), and dissection of a lymph node to detect whether cancer has spread beyond the bladder. In men, the prostate and seminal vesicles are also removed. Bladder replacement options are performed with the use of an intestinal segment and are classified as either: (1) incontinent or (2) continent.An incontinent diversion (ileal conduit) requires a bag to be placed over a stoma to capture urine that drains as it is produced.A continent diversion stores urine and comes in two types: (1) neobladder or (2)
PURPOSE: Salvage cystoprostatectomy has evolved as a safe and potentially curative treatment option for patients with radiation recurrent bladder cancer. Although orthotopic bladder replacement remains the preferred form of urinary diversion, there is minimal information about its role in salvage cystectomy series. We describe our limited experience in this regard. MATERIAL AND METHODS: We evaluated the operative characteristics and outcome of two patients with muscle invasive transitional cell carcinoma (TCC) of the urinary bladder after failed high-dose radiation therapy (mean 6,490 cGy). Both patients underwent salvage cystoprostatectomy with Studer-type ileal neobladder reconstruction. Existing literature on the topic is reviewed. RESULTS: Final histopathology showed pT3 N0 M0 TCC urinary bladder with no recent evidence of tumor recurrence. There was no mortality or major perioperative complication. Mean surgery time was 590 minutes, and mean blood loss was 1,600 mL, with 3.5 U of packed cell

Superficial bladder tumors are those that are localized (confined) to the transitional epithelium (urothelium) - the layer of epithelial cells that lines the inside of the bladder wall and is in direct contact with the urine - but have not spread to the deeper layers of the bladder. Additionally, bladder tumors that have invaded the lamina propria but have not invaded the muscularis propria can be considered as superficial. Invasive bladder cancer refers to a bladder tumor that is either invading the muscularis propria - the deeper layer of muscle cells that forms the wall of the bladder - or the perivesical fat located beyond the bladder muscle. This type of tumor is referred to as muscle-invasive bladder cancer. Muscle-invasive bladder cancer carries a higher risk of spreading beyond the bladder (metastases) and must be treated more aggressively than superficial bladder cancer. The term metastatic bladder cancer is used when the cancer cells have spread beyond the bladder to distant ...
