In this issue of BJUI, Lay et al. [1] report that light reflectance spectroscopy (LRS) can detect Gleason ≥7 positive surgical margins (PSMs) with 92.5% accuracy. In this initial s[...]
Despite earlier detection of localised renal tumours, the resultant tumour down-staging, and an ever-increasing armamentarium of systemic therapies available for metastatic RCC (mR[...]
In the present issue of BJUI, Shiota et al. [1] propose a potential explanation for the PSA ‘flare’ observed in many patients as they initiate docetaxel chemotherapy. The PSA flare[...]
Very few areas of medicine generate more controversy than the management of clinically localised prostate cancer. This is in large part due to the somewhat conflicting nature of th[...]
Men with persistently elevated serum PSA levels after a negative first TRUS-guided systematic prostate biopsy (SBx) represent a great diagnostic challenge. To meet this challenge, [...]
Using a large comprehensive population-based cohort from Canada, Doiron et al. [1] present an in-depth analysis of risk factors and timing of venous thromboembolism (VTE) after rad[...]
Several risk calculators (RCs) have been developed to predict prostate cancer (PCa) diagnosis at prostate biopsy. These multivariable tools have constantly been shown to be superio[...]
Infertility affects 15% of couples, with male factor infertility influencing half of such couples [1]. Multiple environmental risk factors for male infertility have been identified[...]
An increasingly ageing and frail population undergoing cystectomy and urinary diversion has rekindled interest in urinary diversions with a lower risk of peri-operative complicatio[...]
There have been numerous advances in the management of prostate cancer. Developments in imaging, surgical and radiotherapy technology, and pathological grading, have led to improve[...]
