Table 1. Results at 10 years of EORTC 22911.a
Table 2. The risk of overall deterioration of renal function or of achieving a glomerular filtration rate <60ml/min is similar in patients with ileal conduit and ileal orthotopic neobladder.20
Table 3. Several predictors of occult multifocality were identified in patients undergoing radical nephrectomy for clinically localized renal cell carcinoma (n=560; logistic regression analysis).29,30
Table 4. The toxicity of the combination temsirolimus-bevacizumab was higher and the progression-free rate at 48 weeks was lower compared with the sunitinib or the combination of bevacizumub and interferon-α.31
Table 5. Neoadjuvant chemotherapy to lymphadenectomy with paclitaxel, ifosfamide and cisplatin can induce clinically meaningful responses and may improve overall survival, according to a study carried out in 30 patients with N2-3 squamous cell penile cancer.40

To highlight the most important issues of the 2010 annual meetings of the European Association of Urology (EAU), the American Urological Association (AUA), the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO), and the American Society for Therapeutic Radiology and Oncology (ASTRO).


A group of experts in oncological urology selected the most important summaries of the four congresses. Subsequently, the revisers assessed the findings in relation to their present and future impacts on clinical practice. This document includes the summaries with the highest points.


The following messages were considered important. In pT3 prostate cancer, postoperative radiotherapy (RT) improves local control and biochemical progression-free survival, with no significant impact on distant metastasis and overall survival. In patients with bladder cancer without muscle invasion and with the risk of intermediate recurrence, maintenance chemotherapy does not increase recurrence-free survival after transurethral resection. There is no evidence of a synergist effect of the combination of Temsirolimus/Bevacizumab in patients with metastatic kidney cell carcinoma without prior treatment. In the SWENOTECA V protocol for the treatment of seminomatous germ-cell testicular cancer, the adjuvant RT was interrupted because the concern regarding the induction of secondary cancers was greater than the reduction of relapses.


In 2010, new data were produced on the diagnosis and treatment in oncological urology, thanks to the interesting work of different trials.

Destacar lo más relevante de las reuniones anuales 2010 de la Asociación Europea de Urología (European Association of Urology [EAU]), la Asociación Americana de Urología (American Urological Association [AUA]), la Sociedad Americana de Oncología Clínica (American Society of Clinical Oncology [ASCO]) y la Sociedad Americana de Oncología Radioterápica (American Society for Therapeutic Radiology and Oncology [ASTRO]).


Un grupo de expertos en urología oncológica seleccionó los resúmenes más relevantes de los 4 congresos. Posteriormente, los revisores valoraron los hallazgos en relación con su impacto presente y futuro sobre la práctica clínica. Este documento recoge los resúmenes con mayor puntuación.


Se han considerado relevantes los siguientes mensajes. En cáncer de próstata pT3 la radioterapia (RT) postoperatoria mejora el control local y supervivencia libre de progresión bioquímica, sin impacto significativo sobre las metástasis a distancia y la supervivencia global. En pacientes con cáncer vesical sin invasión muscular y con riesgo de recurrencia intermedio, la quimioterapia de mantenimiento no aumentó la supervivencia sin recurrencia después de resección transuretral. No hay evidencia de efecto sinergista de la combinación temsirolimus/bevacizumab para pacientes con carcinoma de células renales metastásico sin tratamiento previo. En el protocolo SWENOTECA V para el tratamiento del cáncer testicular de células germinales seminomatoso se interrumpió la RT adyuvante, porque la preocupación por la inducción de cánceres secundarios superaba a la reducción de las recidivas.


En el 2010 han surgido nuevos datos sobre el diagnóstico y tratamiento en urología oncológica, gracias al interesante trabajo de diferentes estudios.
