As the number of patients who receive onabotulinumtoxinA (onabotA [Botox]) injections for overactive bladder increases, so does the age of this population and their associated comorbidities. This raises the question: Is the use of onabotA in patients who are taking anticoagulant or antiplatelet medication safe?
Three novel androgen receptor inhibitors provide an embarrassment of riches when it comes to treatment options for nmCRPC patients, but there are still questions to be answered—including the extent of these drugs’ clinical benefit.
A recent study shows older women with decreased levels of serum testosterone are more likely to experience incontinence, but this does not necessarily mean urologists should be giving testosterone to older women, a study author says.
Are dip tests needed for onabotulinumtoxinA (onabotA [Botox]) bladder procedures when no symptoms of urinary tract infection are present? A recent study presented at the AUA annual meeting in Chicago suggests the answer may be no.
A preliminary study of the use of salvage lymph node dissection in patients with nonmetastatic, castration-resistant prostate cancer indicates the potential to delay disease recurrence as well as the use of systemic therapies through this approach.
Researchers say the use of apalutamide (Erleada) in patients with high-risk, nonmetastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer improves metastasis-free survival in patients who have previously undergone radical prostatectomy or external radiotherapy—regardless of the type of treatment they received.
A survey of low-risk prostate cancer patients found men who choose active surveillance over definitive treatment have similar mental health outcomes.
Men with low levels of free testosterone 3 months after undergoing radical prostatectomy could face increased chance of early recurrence of prostate cancer, according to researchers from the University of California Irvine.
More research is needed to determine the value of using magnetic resonance imaging to predict pathology outcomes following radical prostatectomy, according to a study presented at the AUA annual meeting in Chicago.
