Adding a First-Generation Anti-Androgen to ADT for mCSPC Does Not Improve Outcomes – Renal and Urology News

Adding an anti-androgen such as bicalutamide or flutamide to androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) for metastatic castration-sensitive prostate cancer (mCSPC) does not improve outcomes compared with ADT alone, according to an analysis of real-world evidence presented at the virtual 2021 Genitourinary Cancers Symposium. In a retrospective study of data from the Veterans Health Administration database, a team led by Stephen J. Freedland, MD, of Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, California, and the Durham VA Medical Center in Durham, North Carolina, found that ADT plus an anti-androgen and ADT alone were associated with a similar time to development of castration-resistant disease (21.4 vs 22.5 months).

Same-Day Robotic Urologic Surgery During the COVID-19 Crisis Not Riskier – Renal and Urology News

Investigators who studied the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic on same-day discharge (SDD) of patients following robotic urologic surgery found no increase in 30-day complication and readmission rates compared with before the pandemic, according to a recent report. During crises like the COVID-19 pandemic, adopting a protocol of SDD after robotic surgery may allow more surgeries to be performed while preserving hospital beds and reducing postoperative patient exposure to infection and may allow for cost savings in the absence of such a crisis, Ronney Abaza, MD, of OhioHealth Robotic Urologic and Cancer Surgery in Dublin, Ohio, and colleagues concluded in a paper published online in Urology. The investigators conducted a single-institution study that compared 89 robotic urologic surgeries performed from March 17 to June 5, 2020 (defined as the COV period) with 1667 historical controls who had the same procedures performed prior to the pandemic (pre-COV group).
