      Teaser Patient selection and preoperative counseling are critical aspects of determining which urinary diversion to perform and should be emphasized at each stage of preoperative planning. The surgeon must have a thorough understanding of the patient’s disease process, functional and psycho-emotional status, and social support network so that they can set appropriate expectations. It is also crucial to have a multidisciplinary team of individuals who are experienced with all aspects of urinary diversion care, including ostomy nurses, nurse navigators, and urologic surgeons skilled at teaching and trouble-shooting self-catheterization for continent cutaneous diversion and orthotopic diversion in the setting of hypercontinence.

      Teaser Patients undergoing urinary diversion are at high risk for complications in the perioperative period. The exact cause of these complications remains poorly defined but is likely multifactorial. Current efforts to optimize patients in the perioperative period, including prehabilitation, smoking cessation, recognition and treatment of comorbid conditions and malnutrition, immunonutrition supplementation, carbohydrate loading, and prevention of known complications and implementation of enhanced recovery after surgery pathways, seem beneficial in helping to improve outcomes in this at-risk population. Further studies (some of which are ongoing) are necessary to help optimize these strategies and identify which modifiable factors have the greatest impact.

  • Metabolic and Nutritional Consequences of Urinary Diversion Using
           Intestinal Segments to Reconstruct the Urinary Tract
    • Authors: Joshua D. Roth; Michael O. Koch
      Pages: 19 - 24
      Abstract: Publication date: February 2018
      Source:Urologic Clinics of North America, Volume 45, Issue 1
      Author(s): Joshua D. Roth, Michael O. Koch
      Teaser Intestinal segments in various forms have been used to reconstruct the urinary tract since the mid-1800s. Currently, many different forms of continent and incontinent diversion options exist. Incorporating bowel mucosa within the urinary tract leads to predictable metabolic and nutritional consequences. The use of ileum or colon can cause a hyperchloremic metabolic acidosis, vitamin B12 deficiency, osteoporosis, fat malabsorption, urinary calculi, and ammoniagenic encephalopathy. Due to metabolic and nutritional consequences associated with the use of jejunum and gastric segments, the use of these bowel segments is not recommended.

      Teaser Successful outcome with orthotopic neobladders begins in the preoperative phase with appropriate patient selection and extensive patient counseling. Meticulous attention to surgical and oncological principles is required to optimize neobladder outcomes. Long-term follow-up is needed not only for oncological purposes but also to monitor for the late complications, such as ureterointestinal strictures, renal deterioration, infections, and voiding dysfunction.

      Teaser Orthotopic neobladder is a viable option for women undergoing cystectomy for bladder cancer, with excellent oncologic outcomes and a low incidence of urethral recurrence. Careful patient selection is important, as is developing a clear understanding by the patient and her family in what to expect with an orthotopic diversion. Surgical technique is also important in optimizing functional outcomes, such as continence, sexual function, and decreased rate of vaginal fistula formation, and urinary retention.

      Teaser Techniques in continent cutaneous urinary diversion (CCUD) have evolved significantly over the last 30 years resulting in several well-established procedures. CCUD is well suited for patients in whom the urethra cannot be used for orthotopic diversion due to preexisting incontinence, radiation damage, or malignancy. Reservoirs are constructed with adherence to basic principles of continent urinary diversion, including the use of detubularized bowel in a spherical conformation for pouch creation with either ileum or the right colon. The article reviews the history, patient selection, preoperative evaluation, surgical technique, and outcomes of CCUD.

      Teaser Urinary diversion (UD) with an intestinal segment has significant risks of short- and long-term complications. With modern reporting criteria, understanding of the true prevalence and spectrum of these complications has improved. Methods to minimize early postoperative complications include enhanced recovery pathways, restricted intraoperative fluid protocols, and referral to high-volume centers. With long-term follow-up after UD, the risk of complications steadily rises. Late surgical complications include ureterointestinal anastomotic strictures, urolithiasis, and stomal issues. Patients with UDs require close surveillance to monitor for anatomic, infectious, and metabolic complications and surgeons who perform UD should be aware of the risk and timing of postoperative complications.

      Teaser It has been known that urinary diversions juxtaposing the urinary and intestinal tracts lead to increased incidence of secondary malignancies. Although tumorigenesis in ureterosigmoidostomies follows the typical course from adenomas to adenocarcinomas, secondary malignancies arising from isolated intestinal diversions are much more heterogeneous. Research over the last half century has unveiled patterns of incidence and progression, while also uncovering possible mechanisms driving the neoplastic changes. In this review, we summarize the current understanding of these unique tumors, with the hope that the knowledge gained may shed light on the etiologies of other cancers arising from the urinary and intestinal tracts.

      Teaser Renal transplantation involving anatomically or functionally altered recipient urinary reservoirs is a challenging procedure. Initial reports discouraged kidney transplantation in patients with urinary diversion due to inferior outcomes. However, more recent studies have shown that although there are more infectious complications, patients with urinary diversions have comparable long-term graft survival with those with native anatomy. Careful preoperative assessment of these candidates is mandatory. Unique technical and surgical concepts must be considered before embarking on transplanting this specific cohort of kidney transplantation candidates.

      Teaser Pediatric urinary diversion is performed for a unique set of indications with many options to consider. Although surgical intervention has decreased in necessity overall due to advances in expectant management, it remains an important tool. There are many options and various factors to consider in choosing the right type of diversion for an individual and these patients require lifelong follow-up with a pediatric urologist and eventually an adult urologist. This article provides a detailed review of the most relevant techniques used by pediatric urologists for urinary diversion.

      Teaser Radical cystectomy (RC) with urinary diversion is associated with significant morbidity, much of which arises from the interposition of bowel segments in the urinary system. A tissue-engineered alternative for urinary diversion could dramatically reduce the perioperative and long-term morbidity associated with RC. Attempts at developing a tissue-engineered incontinent urinary conduit (TEUC) have involved mechanical scaffolds and promoting tissue growth within them. Despite some preclinical success, significant obstacles remain before a TEUC is ready for clinical use. A further understanding of tissue and materials engineering may help overcome these obstacles or help to develop a new approach to tissue engineering entirely.

      Teaser Prostate MRI is commonly used in the detection of prostate cancer to reduce the detection of clinically insignificant disease; maximize the detection of clinically significant cancer; and better assess disease size, grade, and location. The clinical utility of MRI seems to apply to men with no prior biopsy, who have had a previous negative biopsy, and men who are candidate for active surveillance. In conjunction with traditional clinical parameters and secondary biomarkers, MRI may allow more accurate risk stratification and assessment of need for prostate biopsy.

      Teaser Prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) PET has been recently introduced for the diagnosis of patients with metastatic prostate cancer (PCa). Until today, staging of patients with PCa relied mostly on morphologic features, such as size or shape, resulting in low detection rates in disease recurrence. PSMA PET imaging provides molecular information and, in combination with conventional imaging, offers improved sensitivity and specificity. This review discusses the benefits and limitations of PSMA imaging in the setting of primary staging and detection of recurrent disease in comparison with standard-of-care imaging techniques.

      Teaser Prostate cancer lesions smaller than 0.5 m3, or Gleason pattern 3, are likely clinically insignificant. Clinically significant disease is often limited to a single index lesion. Focal ablation targets this index lesion, maintains oncological control, and minimizes complications by preserving healthy prostate tissue. Template mapping biopsy or multiparametric MRI-targeted biopsies are used to identify appropriate index lesions. Multiple energy modalities have been tested, including high-intensity frequency ultrasound, cryoablation, laser ablation, photodynamic therapy, focal brachytherapy, radiofrequency ablation, irreversible electroporation. Outcome is assessed by biopsy of the target area, triggered by prostate-specific antigen measurements or MRI imaging, or performed per protocol at 12 months.

      Teaser Pelvic lymph node dissection (PLND) at the time of radical prostatectomy is the most accurate method of lymph node staging in prostate cancer. Although there are varied practices in anatomic extent of PLND, evidence favors an extended PLND (ePLND) including external iliac, obdurator, and internal iliac nodes. Removing presacral and/or common iliac nodes to the ureteric crossing can improve staging. The oncologic benefits of extended dissection are unclear based on methodologic limitations and bias in the available evidence. Diverse nomograms may clarify which patients warrant ePLND. Higher level evidence is needed to clarify the therapeutic effects of ePLND and who benefits most.

      Teaser An increasing proportion of men are undergoing radical prostatectomy for locally advanced prostate cancer. More than half of men with adverse pathologic features are expected to experience disease recurrence within 10 years. This article discusses the use of postoperative radiation therapy to decrease this risk. Evidence from 3 randomized trials and multiple retrospective studies indicates that either adjuvant or salvage radiation improve biochemical progression-free survival and may improve overall survival. Novel imaging and genomic analysis can improve patient selection for either modality, however current tests are unable to identify all patients who may benefit from additional local therapy.

      Teaser Androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) has been conventional treatment of newly diagnosed metastatic prostate cancer for more than 70 years. However, all patients eventually become castration-resistant and a significant proportion of life span is spent in the castration-resistant state. Prospective randomized control trials have incorporated early chemotherapy along with ADT based on the hypothesis that a significant level of resistance to ADT already exists in newly diagnosed metastatic prostate cancer and ADT exhibits synergistic antitumor activity with taxanes. We discuss the changing landscape of management of patients with newly diagnosed metastatic prostate cancer based on recently published landmark randomized trials.

      Teaser The role of local treatment in oligometastatic prostate cancer remains contentious. Treatment of the prostate in metastatic disease may confer benefit, but prospective data are lacking. With improvements in treatments, aggressive strategies directed at metastases have increasingly become of clinical interest. Current evidence suggests good local control can be achieved; however, further data are required to determine overall cancer outcomes. This article evaluates the evidence available and consider whether local treatment of oligometastatic disease is a feasible, safe, and a positive strategy in this disease cohort. Cure should not be expected, although prolonged disease and treatment-free survival may be observed.

      Teaser Men classified as having high-risk prostate cancer warrant treatment because durable outcomes can be achieved. Judicious use of imaging and considerations of risk factors are essential when caring for men with high-risk disease. Radical prostatectomy, radiation therapy, and androgen deprivation therapy all play pivotal roles in the management of men with high-risk disease, and potentially in men with metastatic disease. The optimal combinations of therapeutic regimens are an evolving area of study and future work looking into therapies for men with high-risk disease will remain critical.

      Teaser Since 2010, 5 new agents have been approved for advanced prostate cancer treatment. The American Urologic Association (AUA) published guidelines for the management of castration-resistant prostate cancer in 2013. These guidelines identify 6 index patients to consider when selecting the most appropriate treatment. No comparative trials have provided an approach to optimize the sequencing of these drugs. For the urologist, incorporating the guidelines into clinical practice typically requires a multidisciplinary team. This article provides an algorithmic approach based on indication and mechanism of action that complements the AUA guidelines to ensure patients receive the most optimal care.

      Teaser Until recently, prostate biopsy for the detection of prostate cancer has been performed transrectally and in an untargeted sampling fashion. Consequently, the procedure has suffered a small but significant risk of severe morbidity through infection, and low diagnostic accuracy, with undergrading and missed diagnosis being common. MRI is revolutionizing prostate cancer diagnosis by improving detection accuracy via targeted biopsy. Transperineal biopsy is eradicating sepsis as a risk of prostate biopsy, while avoiding the need for broad-spectrum or combination prophylactic antibiotics. This article analyzes the data on the various current methods of performing prostate biopsy and recommends an optimal technique.

      Teaser Management of prostate cancer presents unique challenges because of the disease’s variable natural history. Accurate risk stratification at the time of diagnosis in clinically localized disease is crucial in providing optimal counseling about management options. To accurately distinguish pathologically indolent tumors from aggressive disease, risk groups are no longer sufficient. Rather, multivariable prognostic models reflecting the complete information known at time of diagnosis offer improved accuracy and interpretability. After diagnosis, further testing with genomic assays or other biomarkers improves risk classification. These postdiagnostic risk assessment tools should not supplant shared decision making, but rather facilitate risk classification and enable more individualized care.
