Defining Intermediate-Risk Prostate Cancer Suitable for Active Surveillance

Active surveillance (AS) for intermediate-risk prostate cancer (PCa) is controversial. Many AS programs are limited to grade group (GG) 1 (Gleason 6) and PSA<10 ng/ml. However, recent guidelines state that AS can be considered for limited GG2 (Gleason 3+4), despite limited data on outcomes. Our objective was to compare prostatectomy outcomes between subgroups of intermediate-risk versus low-risk PCa.

Hypospadias as a Chronic Illness

Once a surgical procedure is completed, the duration of followup is determined by the risk of complications. After a routine circumcision one has a single followup and, if all is well, is discharged home. In contrast, penile reconstruction for hypospadias repair has a greater risk of complication development. The general consensus is that the complication rate for distal hypospadias is close to 10%. However, more recent studies have shown that with extended followup proximal repairs have a much more grim outcome.
