Bastian, Evanguelos Xylinas, Matthias May Keywords: bladder cancer; radical cystectomy; mortality; nomograms; outcome Objective To externally validate the pT4a-specific risk model for cancer-specific survival (CSS) proposed by May etal. (Urol Oncol 2013; 31: 1141-1147) and to develop a new pT4a-specific nomogram predicting CSS in an international multicentre cohort of patients undergoing radical cystectomy (RC) for urothelial carcinoma of the bladder (UCB) Patients and Methods Data from 856 patients with pT4a UCB treated with RC at 21 centres in Europe and North-America were assessed. The risk model proposed by May etal., which includes female gender, presence of positive lymphovascular invasion (LVI) and lack of adjuvant chemotherapy administration as adverse predictors for CSS, was applied to our cohort. For the purpose of external validation, model discrimination was measured using the receiver-operating characteristic-derived area under the curve. A nomogram for predicting CSS in pT4a UCB after RC was developed after internal validation based on multivariable Cox proportional hazards regression analysis evaluating the impact of clinicopathological variables on CSS. Decision-curve analyses were applied to determine the net benefit derived from the two models. Results The estimated 5-year-CSS after RC was 34% in our cohort. The risk model devised by May etal. predicted individual 5-year-CSS with an accuracy of 60.1%. In multivariable Cox proportional hazards regression analysis, female gender (hazard ratio [HR] 1.45), LVI (HR 1.37), lymph node metastases (HR 2.54), positive soft tissue surgical margins (HR 1.39), neoadjuvant (HR 2.24) and lack of adjuvant chemotherapy (HR 1.67, all P 〈 0.05) were independent predictors of an adverse CSS rate and formed the features of our nomogram with a predictive accuracy of 67.1%. Decision-curve analyses showed higher net benefits for the use of the newly developed nomogram in our cohort over all thresholds. Conclusions The risk model devised by May etal. was validated with moderate discrimination and was outperformed by our newly developed pT4a-specific nomogram in the present study population. Our nomogram might be particularly suitable for postoperative patient counselling in the heterogeneous cohort of patients with pT4a UCB.

Engel (14), Maximilian Burger (2), Hans-Martin Fritsche (2) Keywords: Urothelial carcinoma; Bladder cancer; Radical cystectomy; Vaginal invasion; Uterine invasion; Prognosis Abstract: Purpose To evaluate for the first time the prognostic significance of female invasive patterns in stage pT4a urothelial carcinoma of the bladder in a large series of women undergoing anterior pelvic exenteration. Patients and methods Our series comprised of 92 female patients in total of whom 87 with known invasion patterns were eligible for final analysis. Median follow-up for evaluation of cancer-specific mortality (CSM) was 38 months (interquartile ranges, 21--82 months). The impact on CSM was evaluated using multivariable Cox proportional-hazards regression analysis predictive accuracy (PA) was assessed by receiver operating characteristic analysis. Results Vaginal invasion was noted in 33 patients (37.9 % group VAG), uterine invasion in 20 patients (23 % group UT), and infiltration of both vagina and uterus in 34 patients (39.1 % group VAG + UT). Groups VAG and UT significantly differed from group VAG + UT with regard to the presence of positive soft tissue margins (STM) only. Five-year-cancer-specific survival probabilities in the groups VAG, UT, and VAG + UT were 21, 20, and 21 %, respectively (p = 0.955). On multivariable analysis, only STM status (HR = 2.02, p = 0.023) independently influenced CSM. C-indices of multivariable models for CSM with and without integration of invasive patterns were 0.570 and 0.567, respectively (PA gain 0.3 %, p = 0.526). Conclusions Infiltration of the vagina, the uterus or both is associated with poor 5-year survival rates. With regard to CSM, no difference was detectable between patients with different invasion patterns, thus justifying further collectively including these invasive patterns as stage pT4a.

    Description: Background/Aims/Objectives: To evaluate the influence of body mass index (BMI) on complications and oncological outcomes in patients undergoing radical cystectomy (RC). Methods: Clinical and histopathological parameters of patients have been prospectively collected within the “PROspective MulticEnTer RadIcal Cystectomy Series 2011”. BMI was categorized as normal weight (〈25 kg/m2), overweight (≥25–29.9 kg/m2) and obesity (≥30 kg/m2). The association between BMI and clinical and histopathological endpoints was examined. Ordinal logistic regression models were applied to assess the influence of BMI on complication rate and survival. Results: Data of 671 patients were eligible for final analysis. Of these patients, 26% (n = 175) showed obesity. No significant association of obesity on tumour stage, grade, lymph node metastasis, blood loss, type of urinary diversion and 90-day mortality rate was found. According to the ­American Society of Anesthesiologists score, local lymph node (NT) stage and operative case load patients with higher BMI had significantly higher probabilities of severe complications 30 days after RC (p = 0.037). The overall survival rate of obese patients was superior to normal weight patients (p = 0.019). Conclusions: There is no evidence of correlation between obesity and worse oncological outcomes after RC. While obesity should not be a parameter to exclude patients from cystectomy, surgical settings need to be aware of higher short-term complication risks and obese patients should be counselled ­accordingly.

Hakenberg (3), Stefan Propping (1), Atiqullah Aziz (4) Keywords: Bladder cancer; Radical cystectomy; Recurrence; Outcome Abstract: Purpose To externally validate the Christodouleas risk model incorporating pathological tumor stage, lymph node (LN) count and soft tissue surgical margin (STSM) and stratifying patients who develop locoregional recurrence (LR) after radical cystectomy (RC) for urothelial carcinoma of the bladder (UCB). In addition, we aimed to generate a new model including established clinicopathological features that were absent in the Christodouleas risk model. Methods Prospectively assessed multicenter data from 565 patients undergoing RC for UCB in 2011 qualified for final analysis. For the purpose of external validation, risk group stratification according to Christodouleas was performed. Competing-risk models were calculated to compare the cumulative incidences of LR after RC. Results After a median follow-up of 25 months (interquartile range 19--29), the LR-rate was 11.5 %. The Christodouleas model showed a predictive accuracy of 83.2 % in our cohort. In multivariable competing-risk analysis, tumor stage a[yen]pT3 (HR 4.32, p 〈 0.001), positive STSM (HR 2.93, p = 0.005), lymphovascular invasion (HR 3.41, p 〈 0.001), the number of removed LNs 〈10 (HR 2.62, p 〈 0.001) and the administration of adjuvant chemotherapy (HR 0.40, p = 0.008) independently predicted the LR-rate. The resulting risk groups revealed significant differences in LR-rates after 24 months with 4.8 % for low-risk patients, 14.7 % for intermediate-risk patients and 38.9 % for high-risk patients (p 〈 0.001 for all), with a predictive accuracy of 85.6 %, respectively. Conclusions The Christodouleas risk model has been successfully externally validated in the present prospective series. However, this analysis finds that overall model performance may be improved by incorporating lymphovascular invasion. After external validation of the newly proposed risk model, it may be used to identify patients who benefit from an adjuvant therapy and suit for inclusion in clinical trials.

Bastian (13), Atiqullah Aziz (4) Abstract: Purpose To evaluate the prognostic value of concomitant seminal vesicle invasion (cSVI) in patients with urothelial carcinoma of the bladder (UCB) and contiguous prostatic stromal infiltration in a large cystectomy series. Methods A total of 385 patients with UCB and contiguous prostatic infiltration comprised our study. Patients were divided in two groups according to cSVI. Median follow-up was 36 months (interquartile range 11--74) the primary end point was cancer-specific mortality. The prognostic impact of cSVI was evaluated using multivariable Cox regression analysis. The predictive accuracy was assessed by a receiver operating characteristic analysis. Results A total of 229 patients (59.5 %) without cSVI comprised group A, and 156 patients (40.5 %) with cSVI comprised group B. Positive lymph nodes (63 vs. 44 %, p 〈 0.001) and positive surgical margins (34 % vs. 14 %, p 〈 0.001) were more common in patients with cSVI. The 5- and 10-year cancer-specific survival rates were 41 % and 32 % (group A) and 21 and 17 % (group B) (p 〈 0.001). In multivariable analysis, pathological nodal stage (hazard ratio [HR] 2.19, p 〈 0.001), soft tissue surgical margin (HR 1.57, p = 0.010), clinical tumor stage (HR 1.46, p = 0.010), adjuvant chemotherapy (HR 0.40, p 〈 0.001), and cSVI (HR 1.69, p 〈 0.001) independently impacted cancer-specific mortality. The c-indices of the multivariable models with and without inclusion of cSVI were 0.658 (95 % confidence interval 0.60--0.71) and 0.635 (95 % confidence interval 0.58--0.69), respectively, resulting in a predictive accuracy gain of 2.3 % (p = 0.002). Conclusions In patients with UCB and prostatic stromal invasion, cSVI adversely affected cancer-specific survival compared to patients without cSVI. The inclusion of cSVI significantly improved the predictive accuracy of our multivariable model regarding survival.

    Description: To evaluate the prognostic relevance of different prostatic invasion patterns in pT4a urothelial carcinoma of the bladder (UCB) after radical cystectomy. Our study comprised a total of 358 men with pT4a UCB. Patients were divided in 2 groups—group A with stromal infiltration of the prostate via the prostatic urethra with additional muscle-invasive UCB ( = 121, 33.8%) and group B with continuous infiltration of the prostate through the entire bladder wall ( = 237, 66.2%). The effect of age, tumor grade, carcinoma in situ, lymphovascular invasion, soft tissue surgical margin, lymph node metastases, administration of adjuvant chemotherapy, and prostatic invasion patterns on cancer-specific mortality (CSM) was evaluated using competing-risk regression analysis. Decision curve analysis was used to evaluate the net benefit of including the variable invasion pattern within our model. The estimated 5-year CSM-rates for group A and B were 50.1% and 66.0%, respectively. In multivariable competing-risk analysis, lymph node metastases (hazard ratio [HR] = 1.73, 〈0.001), lymphovascular invasion (HR = 1.62, = 0.0023), soft tissue surgical margin (HR = 1.49, = 0.026), absence of adjuvant chemotherapy (HR = 2.11, 〈0.001), and tumor infiltration of the prostate by continuous infiltration of the entire bladder wall (HR = 1.37, = 0.044) were significantly associated with a higher risk for CSM. Decision curve analysis showed a net benefit of our model including the variable invasion pattern. Continuous infiltration of the prostate through the entire bladder wall showed an adverse effect on CSM. Besides including these patients into clinical trials for an adjuvant therapy, we recommend including prostatic invasion patterns in predictive models in pT4a UCB in men.

    Description: This prospective multicenter study analyzed the effect of hospital and surgeon case volume on perioperative quality of care and short-term complications and mortality in 479 patients undergoing radical cystectomy for bladder cancer. We found that hospital volume might represent an at least equally important factor regarding postoperative complications as the surgeon case volume itself at European tertiary care centers. Case volume has been suggested to affect surgical outcomes in different arrays of procedures. We aimed to delineate the relationship between case volume and surgical outcomes and quality of care criteria of radical cystectomy (RC) in a prospectively collected multicenter cohort. This was a retrospective analysis of a prospectively collected European cohort of patients with bladder cancer treated with RC in 2011. We relied on 479 and 459 eligible patients with available information on hospital case volume and surgeon case volume, respectively. Hospital case volume was divided into tertiles, and surgeon volume was dichotomized according to the median annual number of surgeries performed. Binomial generalized estimating equations controlling for potential known confounders and inter-hospital clustering assessed the independent association of case volume with short-term complications and mortality, as well as the fulfillment of quality of care criteria. The high-volume threshold for hospitals was 45 RCs and, for high-volume surgeons, was 〉 15 cases annually. In adjusted analyses, high hospital volume remained an independent predictor of fewer 30-day (odds ratio, 0.34;  = .002) and 60- to 90-day (odds ratio, 0.41;  = .03) major complications but not of fulfilling quality of care criteria or mortality. No difference between surgeon volume groups was noted for complications, quality of care criteria, or mortality after adjustments. The coordination of care at high-volume hospitals might confer a similar important factor in postoperative outcomes as surgeon case volume in RC. This points to organizational elements in high-volume hospitals that enable them to react more appropriately to adverse events after surgery.
