  • Sacral neuromodulation in the golden years

    • Authors: Roseanne Ferreira, Samuel Otis-Chapados, Emad Alwashmi, Naeem Bhojani, Kevin C. Zorn, Bilal Chughtai, Dean S. Elterman
      Pages: 12 - 6
      Abstract: INTRODUCTION: Despite high prevalence and increased severity and burden of overactive bladder (OAB) and fecal incontinence (FI) in the elderly, sacral neuromodulation (SNM) is often overlooked as a potential treatment option for this demographic. In this study, we report the outcomes of SNM in patients aged 75 years or older at the time of surgery. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective cohort study of patients who underwent SNM implantation between 2013 and 2022 performed by a single, high-volume urologist at a tertiary center. Success, complication, and adjunct therapy rates were analyzed by Fisher’s or Wilcox rank-sum test as appropriate. We compared outcomes between patients aged 75–79 years and octogenarians. RESULTS: Of 632 patients, 50 were ≥75 years. Patients had a mean age of 78.4±2.6 years and were predominantly female (84%). The indications for SNM were 66% OAB, 16% FI, 16% non-obstructive urinary retention, and 4% pelvic pain. Within the first year, 94% of patients reported satisfaction and improvement in symptoms, while 76% continued to experience improvement beyond one year. SNM insertion led to reduced oral medication use from 68% to 24% (p<0.0001). The complication rate was 16% and mostly included device pain. No significant difference was observed in treatment success, complication, or adjunct therapy rate between age groups. CONCLUSIONS: SNM is a safe and effective option in well-selected patients over the age of 75 years. Treatment success rate is comparable to younger cohorts. Advanced age should not preclude third-line therapy options in this population.

  • Comparative real-world survival outcomes of muscle-invasive bladder cancer
           treated with bladder-only vs. whole-pelvis concurrent chemoradiation

      Abstract: INTRODUCTION: Elective pelvic nodal irradiation for patients with muscle-invasive bladder cancer (MIBC) undergoing trimodal therapy (TMT) is controversial. In patients with node-negative (N0) MIBC, the benefit of elective whole-pelvis concurrent chemoradiation (WP-CCR) compared to bladder-only (BO)-CCR has not been demonstrated. Using real-world data from the National Cancer Database (NCDB), we sought to compare the overall survival (OS) between BO-CCR and WP-CCR for MIBC. METHODS: Using the 2020 NCDB Participant User File, we identified cases of MIBC diagnosed between 2017 and 2019. We selected patients with clinical T2–T4aN0M0 disease receiving CCR as first-line treatment. CCR was defined as transurethral resection of bladder tumor followed by ≥40 Gy radiation to the bladder with concurrent single- or multiple-agent chemotherapy. Based on elective nodal irradiation status, patients were stratified as having received BO-CCR vs. WP-CCR. OS analysis was performed using summary three-month conditional landmark, inverse probability treatment weighting (IPTW)-adjusted Kaplan-Meier estimates, and Cox regression. RESULTS: A total of 604 patients receiving CCR for MIBC were identified: 367 (60.8%) BO-CCR and 237 (39.2%) WP-CCR. Before IPTW, the groups were imbalanced in terms of baseline characteristics. The median followup of the weighted population was 42.3 months (interquartile range 18.1–49.1 months). In IPTW-adjusted Cox proportional hazards regression analysis, WP-CCR was associated with a significant OS benefit compared to BO-CCR (adjusted hazard ratio 0.72, 95% confidence interval 0.54–0.96, p=0.026). CONCLUSIONS: In the setting of CCR for N0 MIBC, this retrospective NCDB analysis revealed that WP-CCR was associated with a benefit in OS compared to BO-CCR.

  • Salvage therapy for BCG failure with intravesical sequential gemcitabine
           and docetaxel in patients with recurrent NMIBC

    • Authors: Charles-Antoine Garneau, Nathalie Marcotte, Louis Lacombe, Yves Fradet, Vincent Fradet, Frédéric Pouliot, Paul Toren, Michele Lodde
      Pages: 23 - 40
      Abstract: INTRODUCTION: Bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG) failure occurs in approximately 40% of patients with non-muscle-invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC) within two years. We describe our institutional experience with sequential intravesical gemcitabine and docetaxel (gem/doce) as salvage therapy post-BCG failure in patients who were not candidates for or declined radical cystectomy (RC). METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed NMIBC patients with BCG failure who received gem/doce from April 2019 through October 2022 at the CHU de Québec–Université Laval. Patients received at least five weekly intravesical instillations according to published protocols. Patients who responded to gem/doce had maintenance instillations monthly for up to two years. Primary outcome was progression-free survival (PFS). Secondary outcomes included recurrence-free survival (RFS), cystectomy-free survival (CFS), cancer-specific survival (CSS), overall survival (OS), and treatment adverse events. Survival probabilities were estimated using the Kaplan-Meier method from the first gem/doce instillation. RESULTS: Thirty-five patients with a median age of 78 years old were included in the study. The median followup time was 21 months (interquartile range 10–29). More than 25% of patients received two or more prior BCG induction treatments. Overall and MIBC PFS estimates at one year were 85% and 88%, and at two years, 60% and 70%, respectively. Adverse events occurred in 37% of the patients, but only two patients didn’t complete the treatment due to intolerance. Three patients underwent RC due to cancer progression. OS was 94% at two years. CONCLUSIONS: With 60% of PFS at two years, gem/doce appears to be a safe and well-tolerated option for BCG failure patients. Further studies are needed to justify widespread use.

  • MV140 sublingual vaccine reduces recurrent urinary tract infection in
           women

    • Authors: J. Curtis Nickel, Kerri-Lynn Kelly, Ashley Griffin, Dean S. Elterman, Janet Clark-Pereira, R. Christopher Doiron
      Pages: 25 - 31
      Abstract: INTRODUCTION: This is the first North American clinical evidence for MV140, a novel bacterial sublingual vaccine, developed for prevention of recurrent urinary tract infection (UTI) in women. METHODS: Female subjects with ≥3 documented UTIs/year underwent three-month vaccination treatment, nine-month efficacy period, and optional three-month followup (total 15 months). Primary outcome was no clinically diagnosed UTI following vaccination (UTI-free rate). Secondary outcomes included absolute, mean, and median overall reduction in UTI compared to pre-vaccination, quality of life, global response assessment, patient satisfaction, microbiology, and safety. RESULTS: Sixty-seven subjects (mean age 56 years, range 18–80) were enrolled; 64 completed the vaccination period and at least one post-vaccination assessment. Prior to vaccination, subjects reported a mean 6.8 UTIs/year. The UTI-free rate for the nine-month efficacy period was 40.6%. Compared to the infection rate in the year prior to vaccination, the reduction was 75.3% for the nine-month efficacy period post-vaccination. At 12-month followup, 80.3% reported that they were moderately/markedly improved; 58.1% were mostly satisfied, pleased, or delighted, while mean quality of life score improved by 1.5 points. Fourteen of the adverse events in nine subjects were potentially related to the vaccine — all mild and resolved by three months. None of the 13 serious adverse events were related to vaccine. CONCLUSIONS: This first-in-North-America, prospective case series with the sublingual vaccine, MV140, adds further clinical evidence to its safety and effectiveness in reducing recurrent UTIs in women.

  • Comparison of salvage radical prostatectomy vs. salvage ablation therapy
           for biopsy-proven radio-recurrent localized prostate cancer

      Abstract: INTRODUCTION: Radiation therapy for prostate cancer is associated with a 15–20% five-year recurrence rate. Patients with recurrence in the prostate only are candidates for salvage local therapies; however, there is no consensus on modality. This study uses registries at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC) and University of Western Ontario (UWO) to compare the oncologic outcomes of salvage radical prostatectomy (SRP) and salvage ablation (SA). METHODS: A total of 444 patients were available for analysis. Due to intergroup differences, propensity score methodology was used and identified 378 patients with more comparable pre-salvage prostate-specific antigen (PSA), Gleason score, and primary radiation treatment. Patients underwent SRP at MSKCC and SA at UWO. RESULTS: Of the 378 patients, 48 died of disease, with a 6.0-year median (interquartile range [IQR] 3.0, 9.7) followup among survivors; 88 developed metastases, with a median 4.6-year (IQR 2.3, 7.9) followup among metastasis-free survivors. There was a non-significantly higher rate of cancer-specific (hazard ratio [HR] 1.02, 95% confidence interval [CI] 0.51, 2.06, p=0.9) and improved metastasis-free survival (HR 0.71, 95% CI 0.44, 1.13, p=0.15) among patients undergoing SA compared to patients undergoing SRP. There were 143 patients who received hormonal therapy, with higher rates of androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) in SA (HR 1.42, 95% CI 0.97, 2.08, p=0.068), although this did not meet conventional levels of significance. CONCLUSIONS: This propensity score analysis of salvage therapy for radio-recurrent prostate cancer identified no statistically significant differences in oncologic outcome between SRP and SA; however, there was evidence of a lower risk of ADT in the cohort undergoing SRP. Given they are both potentially curative therapies, these treatments are viable options for men with clinically localized, radio-recurrent prostate cancer rather than ADT alone. Future research may further elucidate subpopulations that may be more amenable to either SRP or SA.

  • Point-of-care ultrasound

    • Authors: Aaron van der Leek, Peter Metcalfe
      Pages: 48 - 54
      Abstract: INTRODUCTION: This research evaluates the utility and precision of point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) in urology, inspired by recent affirmations of its feasibility and value.1,2 Our study provides valuable insights for urologists about POCUS’s practical usage. METHODS: A prospective study assessed POCUS usage and accuracy in the University of Alberta’s Division of Urology using data from April 4, 2022, to April 4, 2023. Data include POCUS indications, findings, and correlation with the final diagnosis/gold standard. Additionally, a qualitative survey was conducted among urologists and residents about POCUS’s pros, cons, and barriers to integration. RESULTS: Thirty-three patients underwent POCUS examinations, mainly for suspected hydronephrosis (27%, n=9). Other indications included urinary retention, testicular mass, torsion, cryptorchidism, renal mass, extended focused assessment with sonography in trauma (eFAST) exams, nephrostomy tube placement confirmation, and scrotal hematomas. POCUS findings matched the final diagnosis in most cases, showing 86% sensitivity, with an average exam time of 1–5 minutes. POCUS showed potential for suprapubic tube insertions. Residents (60%, n=20) were the most frequent users, followed by staff (33%, n=10), and students (6%, n=2). The surveyed urologists and residents expressed comfort with POCUS but cited time, cost, and practicality as barriers. CONCLUSIONS: POCUS proves accurate and beneficial in urology, particularly for hydronephrosis. Most findings align with the gold standard, and the average exam time is brief. Barriers include time and cost. Further research is necessary to evaluate cost-effectiveness and POCUS’s impact on patient outcomes in routine urologic practice.

      Abstract: INTRODUCTION: Robotic surgery is used in the treatment of kidney tumors. We aimed to determine if robotic access was associated with initial choice of management for patients with a clinical stage I kidney mass. METHODS: Patients with a clinical stage I kidney mass were identified from the Canadian Kidney Cancer information system (CKCis) cohort. Sites were classified by year and access to robotic surgery. Associations between robotic access and initial management were determined using logistic regression. Univariable and multivariable analyses were performed, adjusting for tumor size and stage, and presented as relative risks (RR) or adjusted RR (aRR) and 95% confidence intervals (CI). RESULTS: Overall, 4160 patients were included. Among patients treated with surgery, the proportion of partial nephrectomy compared to radical nephrectomy was significantly higher in robotic sites (77.3% for robotic sites vs. 65.9% for non-robotic sites; RR 1.17, 95% CI 1.12–1.23, p<0.0001; aRR 1.12, 95% CI 1.08–1.17, p<0.0001). Patients receiving partial nephrectomy at sites with robotic access were more likely to receive a minimally invasive approach compared to patients at non-robotic sites (61.4% vs. 50.9%, RR 1.21, 95% CI 1.12–1.30; aRR 1.16, 95% CI 1.08–1.25, p<0.0001). The proportion of patients managed by active surveillance was not significantly different between robotic (405, 16.9%) and nonrobotic (258, 14.7%) sites (RR 1.15, 95% CI 0.99–1.32; aRR 0.97, 95% CI 0.84–1.12). CONCLUSIONS: Access to robotic kidney surgery was associated with increased use of partial nephrectomy and minimally invasive partial nephrectomy. Use of active surveillance was similar at robotic and non-robotic institutions. Limitations of this study include lack of data on perioperative complications and cancer recurrence.

  • The quality of YouTube videos on radiotherapy and prostatectomy for
           prostate cancer

      Abstract: INTRODUCTION: Prostate cancer ranks as the third leading cause of death among Canadian men and is primarily treated with radiotherapy and prostatectomy. Given YouTube’s significant global traffic, patients often turn to it for information on treatment and side effects. This study assessed YouTube videos for prostate cancer patients, focusing on radiotherapy, prostatectomy, and side effect management. METHODS: The study analyzed 50 YouTube videos, comparing their accuracy and coverage against the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN), UpToDate, and cancer.ca. Two raters were involved in the review of the videos to ensure inter-rater reliability. RESULTS: Video lengths ranged from 1–60 minutes (mean 11 minutes) and creation dates ranged from 2012–2021. Videos were presented by physicians, patients, or allied health professionals (75%, 16%, and 8%, respectively). Results showed physician presenters had a Video Power Index (video popularity) of 23.45, while patient presenters had an average of 61.36 (almost three times as popular as physician-led videos). The overall accuracy of videos showed that 82% demonstrated completely accurate and detailed information, 18% showed partially complete information, and 76% showed no biased information. No false information was found in any videos. CONCLUSIONS: This study showed that while the YouTube informational videos included good coverage of treatment side effects, there were gaps in information regarding quality of life after treatment or management of side effects. Information from this study can benefit the provider-patient interaction, with the hope that healthcare providers create more videos on quality of life after treatment and management of side effects to satisfy patient needs.
