    Title Repeat Prostate Biopsy and the Incremental Risk of Clinically Insignificant Prostate Cancer.
    Date May 2011
    Journal Urology

    To determine the incremental risk of diagnosis of clinically insignificant prostate cancer with serial prostate biopsies.

    Title Longitudinal Evaluation of the Concordance and Prognostic Value of Lymphovascular Invasion in Transurethral Resection and Radical Cystectomy Specimens.
    Date February 2011
    Journal Bju International

    To evaluate the concordance transurethral resection of bladder tumour (TURBT) and radical cystectomy (RC) specimens with regard to the presence of lymphovascular invasion (LVI). Additionally, to evaluate the prognostic value of LVI in the prediction of lymph node metastases, overall survival, disease-specific survival and recurrence-free survival following RC.

    Title Defining Pathological Variables to Predict Biochemical Failure in Patients with Positive Surgical Margins at Radical Prostatectomy: Implications for Adjuvant Radiotherapy.
    Date June 2010
    Journal Bju International

    To evaluate the utility of estimated tumour volume, number of positive surgical margins (PSMs), and margin location for predicting biochemical failure in patients with PSM, in an attempt to better risk-stratify the heterogeneous group of patients at high risk of biochemical failure after radical prostatectomy (RP) for prostate cancer.

    Title The Impact of Residency Match Information Disseminated by a Third-party Website.
    Date January 2010
    Journal Journal of Surgical Education

    Over the past 10 years, a dramatic shift has occurred toward web-based applications and information dissemination both for medical students applying to residency programs and for current housestaff seeking specialty-specific information. This shift has been witnessed in urology with adoption of the Internet-based Electronic Residency Application Service for residency application submission. Currently, most residency programs devote significant attention to developing and maintaining an attractive web page, as studies have suggested departmental websites may impact applicants' decisions regarding residency preference lists.(1,2) Recently, some third-party websites have been established to provide information to medical students and residents in a variety of specialties. No studies are available that evaluate the impact of these external websites on residency decision making. In 2003, a website under the domain name was created by 2 coauthors (A.K. and T.M.M.) with the purpose of assisting medical students through the American Urological Association (AUA) match process. Additionally, by providing a discussion forum for students, residents, and faculty, it sought to aid with the dissemination of information between urology programs and applicants. The website has been gradually expanded to provide educational content for urology trainees at a wide range of levels. Components of the website include an introduction to the field of urology, a detailed description of the match process, an "expert advice" section from urologic leaders, a library of relevant Internet links, a digital surgical atlas, and program-specific questionnaire responses provided by residency directors and department chairs. A discussion board providing an uncensored forum for visitors is integrated into the website to aid with the dissemination of information between and among urology programs, residents, and applicants. The high usage of this site has suggested that external websites may have a marked impact on the residency application process. The purpose of the current study was to evaluate the role of in the AUA match process. During the 2007-2008 urology residency match, we evaluated whether information disseminated through the website influenced medical students' decisions to enter the field of urology and whether this information factored into the generation of residency preference lists. We hypothesized that information on this website played a significant role in decision making throughout the urology residency match experience.

    Title Synchronous Metastatic Renal Cell Carcinoma to the Genitourinary Tract: Two Rare Case Reports and a Review of the Literature.
    Date May 2009
    Journal The Canadian Journal of Urology

    Synchronous metastasis of renal cell carcinoma (RCC) to the ureter or the bladder represents an extremely rare event. We report one case of synchronous metastasis of RCC to the ipsilateral ureter and one case of solitary synchronous metastasis of RCC to the urinary bladder. We review the literature and discuss possible mechanisms of dissemination. We discuss the surgical management of metastases from RCC as well as the surgical options in the treatment of these rare occurrences.

    Title Does Race Affect Postoperative Outcomes in Patients with Low-risk Prostate Cancer Who Undergo Radical Prostatectomy?
    Date April 2009
    Journal Urology

    To assess the magnitude of racial disparities in prostate cancer outcomes following radical prostatectomy for low-risk prostate cancer.

    Title Hydronephrosis is an Independent Predictor of Poor Clinical Outcome in Patients Treated for Muscle-invasive Transitional Cell Carcinoma with Radical Cystectomy.
    Date September 2008
    Journal Urology

    OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study was to assess the prognostic significance of hydronephrosis on pathologic and clinical outcomes in muscle-invasive bladder cancer. METHODS: We performed a retrospective evaluation of a prospectively maintained cystectomy database and identified patients with hydronephrosis on preoperative imaging. Of a total of 306 patients, 57 (19%) had unilateral hydronephrosis and 17 (6%) had bilateral hydronephrosis. We constructed multivariate Cox regression analysis and Kaplan Meier tables to evaluate the association between preoperative hydronephrosis and clinical outcomes. RESULTS: In patients without hydronephrosis, 41.4% had extravesical disease compared with 56.1% and 64.7% in patients with unilateral or bilateral hydronephrosis, respectively. Mean overall survival (OS) among patients without hydronephrosis, with unilateral hydronephrosis, and with bilateral hydronephrosis was 55.5, 42.1, and 22.2 months, respectively. Five-year OS and disease-specific survival (DSS) was 46%, 35%, and 22% (P = .001) and 68%, 54%, and 35% (P = .002), respectively. Multivariate analysis demonstrated that both unilateral and bilateral hydronephrosis are significant independent risk factors for DSS and OS. Bilateral hydronephrosis was found to have a hazard ratio of 3.87 (95% confidence interval [CI] = 1.71-8.78, P = .001) and 2.75 (95% CI = 1.45-5.18, P = .002) for DSS and OS, respectively. The hazard ratios for unilateral hydronephrosis were 1.7 (95% CI = 1.05-2.87, P = .03) and 1.5 (95% CI = 1.03-2.23, P = .04) for DSS and OS, respectively. CONCLUSIONS: Preoperative hydronephrosis is associated with a significantly poorer prognosis in patients with muscle-invasive bladder cancer. These patients should be appropriately counseled with regard to overall prognosis and the potential benefit of neoadjuvant chemotherapy.

    Title A Case of Synchronous Bilateral Testicular Seminoma.
    Date August 2008
    Journal Nature Clinical Practice. Urology

    BACKGROUND: A previously healthy 51-year-old man with two children sustained a minor testicular trauma and subsequently sought medical care for persistent discomfort. INVESTIGATIONS: Physical examination, scrotal ultrasonography, Doppler ultrasound evaluation of testicular blood flow, scrotal MRI, measurement of serum tumor markers and testosterone levels, CT of the chest, abdomen and pelvis, intraoperative frozen section analysis and final pathologic analysis. DIAGNOSIS: Bilateral testicular seminoma (clinical stage I). MANAGEMENT: The patient initially underwent radical left orchiectomy with intraoperative frozen section analysis, which returned equivocal results. Final pathologic analysis revealed a 2.5 cm left testicular seminoma without vascular invasion. After careful discussion, he ultimately underwent radical right orchiectomy; pathologic analysis revealed a 2.7 cm right seminoma with vascular invasion. Testosterone replacement therapy was initiated. After further discussion, the patient elected to undergo adjuvant abdominal radiotherapy to a total of 25 Gy. The patient showed no evidence of disease over a post-treatment follow-up period of 24 months.

    Title Transitional Cell Carcinoma of the Fossa Navicularis in a Man with Preexisting Adenocarcinoma of the Prostate.
    Date August 2006
    Journal Urologia Internationalis

    In this report we present a patient with a history of prostatic adenocarcinoma who was found to have a low-grade/low-stage transitional cell carcinoma of the fossa navicularis. The patient underwent transurethral resection and at approximately 2 years of follow-up he has no evidence of tumor recurrence. Very limited follow-up data exist on which to base management decisions, and this report lends support to the use of transurethral resection alone as a means to treat low-grade/low-stage lesions.

    Title Impact of Adjuvant Chemotherapy on Patients with Lymph Node Metastasis at the Time of Radical Cystectomy.
    Journal The Canadian Journal of Urology

    Radical cystectomy (RC) remains the gold standard treatment for patients with muscle-invasive bladder cancer. Unfortunately, a significant proportion of patients will have lymph node involvement at the time of RC. We set out to determine the impact of adjuvant cisplatin-based chemotherapy (AC) in a cohort of lymph node positive patients following RC.

    Title Endorectal T2-weighted Mri Does Not Differentiate Between Favorable and Adverse Pathologic Features in Men with Prostate Cancer Who Would Qualify for Active Surveillance.
    Journal Urologic Oncology

    With the increased diagnosis of low grade, low volume, potentially non-lethal disease, active surveillance (AS) has become an increasingly popular alternative for select men with low-risk prostate cancer. The absence of precise clinical staging modalities currently makes it difficult to predict which patients are most appropriate for AS. The goal of our study was to evaluate the ability of endorectal MRI (eMRI) to predict adverse pathologic features in patients who would otherwise qualify for an AS program.
