This is a prospective multicentric phase-I-II pilot feasibility study. The main objective is to study early and late side effects of hypofractionated accelerated RT for prostate cancer with FFF (Free Flattened Filter) beam. The schedule will be [ 4 x 9.5 Gy = 38 Gy ] delivered in 5 alternative days.
The aim of this study was to compare the pain levels in transrectal ultrasound (TRUS)-guided standard 12-core prostate biopsy (SPB) and multiparametric prostate magnetic resonance imaging (MpMRI)-guided fusion prostate biopsy (FPB).
The present study evaluates the functional relations of pelvic floor, diaphragm, and torso muscles, their variation and correlations with urinary incontinence while separately training physical characteristics of the mentioned muscles in men after radical prostatectomy.
In this study, the researchers will examine the effects of a 4-week online mindfulness intervention, compared to a face-to-face mindfulness intervention, to reduce self-reported symptoms of fatigue, anxiety, depression, sleep disturbance, and pain interference in a sample of patients with metastatic prostate cancer.
In this study, the researchers will examine the effects of post-mindfulness intervention email and text messages to promote maintenance of intervention effects over time in a uro-oncology sample (clinically localized prostate, kidney, and bladder cancer) of patients and spouses.
In this study, the researchers will examine the effects of a brief eHealth mindfulness intervention, compared to brief relaxing music, to reduce self-reported symptoms of fatigue, anxiety, depression and sleep disturbance in a sample of localized prostate cancer patients during the receipt of radiation therapy.
Radical radiotherapy to the prostate is conventionally treated with a full bladder with the aim of minimising dose to the bladder and small bowel to prevent significant side effects. Tolerance of the bladder filling protocol varies depending on patients' baseline urinary function. It is not uncommon for some men to have "accidents" during treatment causing understandable distress. This can also extend the treatment time and cause knock on delays in the radiotherapy department. Several United Kingdom (UK) centres report treating with an empty bladder. The investigators carried out a feasibility study comparing treatment with full bladder to empty bladder to ascertain if the investigators can safely change our protocol to that of an empty bladder.
The Be-RALP database is Belgian prospective multicenter database governed by the Belgian cancer registry. This database investigates the status after robot assisted laparoscopic prostatectomy (RALP) in prostate cancer patients. It was established by a collaboration between the Belgian association of Urology (BAU), the National Institute for Health and Disability Insurance (NIHDI) and the Belgian cancer registry. Between 2009 and 2016, 9235 patients were included in this patient registry. The studied outcomes covered quality of life measures as well as variables covering urinary and erectile function.
Prostate biopsy was offered to 47 consecutive patients with prostate-specific antigen (PSA) over 4 ng/dl or suspicious digital rectal examination (DRE) of whom 16 had undergone a biopsy. Comprehensive validated questionnaires at TIME 0 (pre-biopsy), TIME 1 (before diagnosis, 20 days after biopsy) and TIME 2 (after diagnosis, 40 days after biopsy) accessed patients' erectile (IIEF-5) and voiding (IPSS) functions, Beck scales measured anxiety (BAI), hopelessness (BHS) and depression (BDI), added to the emotional thermometers including five visual analog scales for distress, anxiety, depression, anger and need for help. Mann-Whitney or Friedman tests were obtained among times and studied variables.
This study evaluates whether exercise can reduce treatment-related adverse effects in prostate cancer patients initiating androgen deprivation therapy. Half of recruited participants completed a 3-month exercise intervention, while the other half did not perform any supervised exercise. It was anticipated that exercise would have a positive effect on body composition, cardiorespiratory fitness and quality of life.
