Use of antioxidants for treating male factor infertility appears to be of little benefit, improving neither semen parameters nor DNA integrity, according to the results of the Males, Antioxidants and Infertility (MOXI) trial.
Resection techniques appear to be significantly associated with surgical complications, early functional outcomes and positive surgical margins after partial nephrectomy of localized renal masses, suggests a recent study.
The addition of the potent triple angiokinase inhibitor nintedanib to a standard chemotherapeutic regimen consisting of gemcitabine and cisplatin generated survival benefit in patients with locally advanced muscle invasive bladder cancer (MIBC), according to the results of the NEO-BLADE* trial presented at ASCO GU 2020. However, the study failed to demonstrate improvement in the primary endpoint of pathologic complete response (CR).
The recently published phase III POUT* trial demonstrated that adjuvant gemcitabine-platinum chemotherapy after nephroureterectomy boosts disease free-survival (DFS) in patients with locally advanced upper urinary tract urothelial carcinoma (UTUC).
An inpatient rehabilitation “voiding school” programme is beneficial to children with refractory overactive bladder (OAB), promoting continence and ameliorating the degree of severity, a study reports.
The use of sipuleucel-T significantly prolongs overall survival (OS) in men with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC), regardless of treatment setting, based on real-world data presented at ASCO GU 2020.
Robot-assisted radical cystectomy with intracorporeal urinary diversion results in better perioperative outcomes and lower major complications compared to extracorporeal urinary diversion and open radical cystectomy in patients with bladder cancer, a study has shown.
Early rehabilitative measures such as preoperative pelvic floor muscle exercise (PFME) may promote early recovery of urinary continence following holmium laser enucleation of the prostate (HoLEP) for benign prostatic hyperplasia, a study has shown.
