Chimiothérapie en oncologie urologique
- Réf : Prog Urol, 2011, 11, 21, 816-821


Chemotherapy is an effective treatment in urologic cancers either for localized tumor or metastatic disease. In urologic cancers, chemotherapy always takes part in a multidisciplinary strategy including surgery, oncology and radiotherapy. Except for metastatic testicular germ cell cancers, chemotherapy is a palliative treatment in other metastatic urologic cancers such as bladder and castration-resistant prostate carcinomas. In metastatic clear cell renal carcinomas, it has not any indication and anti-angiogenic drugs are the only therapeutic options. Neoadjuvant chemotherapy in non-metastatic muscle-invasive bladder cancers must be considered as a standard treatment in fit patients.

- Réf : Prog Urol, 2011, 11, 21, 808-810


Photoselective vaporization of the prostate is a minimal invasive endoscopic treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) obstruction. It uses the light energy produced by a laser source to destroy and remove urethral obstruction due to BPH. Its main advantage over transurethral resection of prostate is the minimal bleeding allowing a short urethral catheterization and hospital stay. It is useful in patients with bleeding disorders.
