Robotic or Open Radical Cystectomy in Treating Patients With Bladder Cancer

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES: I. To compare RRC to ORC in terms of the difference in European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer (EORTC) Quality of Life Questionnaire Core (QLQC)30 quality of life instrument assessed at baseline to day 30 after radical cystectomy (RC). II. To compare RRC to ORC in ...

Phase N/A

Focal Therapy for Prostate Cancer Using HIFU

Verification of a new therapy as favourable, or equivalent, in outcome to 'standard' care is ideally sought through comparison with another matched control group. Randomised controlled trials (RCTs) offer the best method for minimising systematic bias and revealing the true effect of an intervention or drug. However, RCTs involving treatments ...

Phase N/A

MRI in Clinical Staging and Estimation of Treatment Response in Bladder Cancer

Bladder cancer (BC) as the most common malignancy arising from the urinary tract continues to be a major health problem. This prospective non-randomized study will enroll 150 patients undergoing magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) at different stages of their diagnostic and therapeutical process. The enrolled patients with suspected BC (BC) based ...

Phase N/A

Cystoscopic Evaluation Predicting pT0 Urothelial Carcinoma of the Bladder

Archival specimen of prior diagnostic TUR will be prepared as 10-20 unstained 5-10 micron slides to under-go next generation sequencing and be compared to final cystectomy specimen to investigate potential pre-treatment signatures predictive of response to chemotherapy and to understand genomic evolution of primary tumors after chemotherapy. All patients will ...

Phase N/A

Impact of Positron Emission Tomography (PET) Imaging in Muscle-invasive Urothelial Carcinoma of the Bladder Staging

A multicenter randomized controlled trial will be performed. Patients usually present with symptoms (e.g., painless hematuria). The urologist will perform cystoscopy and if urothelial cancer of the bladder is suspected, the patient is taken to the operating room for an examination under anesthesia (EUA) and a TURBT. If this shows ...

Phase N/A

The Effects of Acupuncture and the Therapist s Communication on Chemotherapy Induced Nausea and Vomiting

Background: Nausea and vomiting (emesis) is a common and burdensome side-effect of emetogenic chemotherapy. Emesis affects both the patient's quality of life and induces high costs within the health-care system. Many patients are interested in acupuncture, despite weak scrientific evidence for its effects beside non-specific effects. Few credibly sham-controlled studies ...

Phase N/A

Prostatic Artery Embolization in Advanced Prostate Cancer

PAE has been shown to be safe and effective in the treatment of prostatic bleeding and lower urinary tract symptoms arising from bladder outlet obstruction. Advanced (defined as locally advanced, metastatic or both in this study) PCA is frequently associated with both of these conditions. The currently most frequently performed ...

Phase N/A

Adjuvant Radiation for High Risk Bladder Cancer

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the feasibility of adjuvant radiation in the management of high-risk disease. SECONDARY OBJECTIVES: I. Prospectively evaluate patterns of failure in high-risk bladder cancer patients after cystectomy and aggressive adjuvant therapy. II. Define surgical and histopathologic parameters predictive of local and distant outcomes (e.g. grade, lymphovascular space ...

Phase N/A

Pre-Operative Single Shot Rectus Sheath Block

Purpose: To improve analgesia and reduce opioid consumption in patients undergoing major urologic surgery. Hypothesis: Patients receiving pre-operative single shot rectus sheath blockade in addition to continuous rectus sheath catheters will use less PCA opioid in the first 24 hours post-operatively compared to patients receiving continuous rectus sheath blockade for ...

Phase N/A

A Superiority Trial to Compare Re-resection of High-grade T1 Bladder Urothelial Carcinoma to no Re-resection for Improving Progression Free Survival

Background: Bladder cancer (BCa) is the 4th and 12th most common malignancies by incidence in Canadian men and women, respectively. In Canada, the lifetime probability of developing BCa is 1 in 27 men and 1 in 84 women. Urologists use a transurethral resection of bladder tumor (TURBT) to diagnose and ...
