Active Surveillance of Small Renal Masses

Urology (Gold Journal) In Press - Wed, 09/26/2018 - 00:00
Most renal masses in the United States are incidentally detected via abdominal imaging. This has led to an increase in the incidence of small renal masses (≤ 4 cm). Active surveillance is a feasible, oncologically safe option in slow growing and indolent tumors in other organs and has recently become more widely studied in small renal masses. Active surveillance for small renal masses is a feasible and safe option for select patients, particularly those who are more elderly or harbor significant comorbidities, especially cardiovascular disease.

Testosterone therapy for high-risk prostate cancer survivors: a systematic review and meta-analysis

Urology (Gold Journal) In Press - Fri, 09/21/2018 - 00:00
A systematic review and meta-analysis was performed to determine the relationship between testosterone therapy and risk of recurrence in testosterone-deficient survivors of curatively treated high-risk prostate cancer. Primary outcome was the risk of biochemical recurrence (BCR) in 109 high-risk patients in 13 included studies (1997-2017). Biochemical and symptomatic effects of therapy were also reviewed. The BCR rate was 0.00 (0.00-0.05), lower than the expected rate for high-risk prostate cancer survivors, suggesting that testosterone therapy may not increase their BCR risk.
