Metabolic Syndrome Predicts Worse Perioperative Outcomes in Patients Treated With Partial Nephrectomy for Renal Cell CarcinomaTo test the association between metabolic syndrome (MetS) and its components (high blood pressure, body mass index [BMI] ≥ 30, altered fasting glucose, low high-density lipoprotein cholesterol and high triglycerides) on perioperative outcomes after partial nephrectomy (PN).
When to Perform Preoperative Bone Scintigraphy for Kidney Cancer Staging: Indications for Preoperative Bone ScintigraphyTo identify an objective and reproducible strategy for preoperative staging bone scintigraphy (BS) in patients diagnosed with renal cell carcinoma (RCC), because in the absence of objective criteria, the decision to perform preoperative BS remains a subjective practice.
Characterization of Late Recurrence After Radical Cystectomy in a Large Multicenter Cohort of Bladder Cancer PatientsTo investigate the characteristics and outcomes of late recurrence (LR) in patients with bladder cancer (BCa) treated with radical cystectomy (RC) and to identify clinicopathologic predictors of LR and postrecurrence survival.
Diagnostic Accuracy of 64Copper Prostate-specific Membrane Antigen Positron Emission Tomography/Computed Tomography for Primary Lymph Node Staging of Intermediate- to High-risk Prostate Cancer: Our Preliminary ExperienceTo assess the diagnostic accuracy of 64Copper prostate-specific membrane antigen (64Cu-PSMA) positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) in the primary lymph node (LN) staging of a selected cohort of intermediate- to high-risk prostate cancer (PCa) patients.
Prediction of Competing Mortality for Decision-making Between Surgery or Observation in Elderly Patients With T1 Kidney CancerTo predict the risk of cancer-specific mortality (CSM) or other-cause mortality (OCM) for T1 kidney cancer patients, aiming at identifying those who would benefit from surgery over observation.
