Comprehensive report documents impact of urologic diseases on American public
Date:5/18/2012

-invasive bladder cancer are not receiving the guideline-recommended care that would best protect them from disease recurrence.

  • A study published in the July 2011 edition of the journal Urology found that clinical guidelines for benign prostatic hyperplasia, a condition involving enlargement of the prostate that affects more than half of men in their 60s, were only followed to a moderate degree and that great variations in care existed from region to region in the U.S.

  • A March 2011 study in the Journal of Urology showed that a treatment for urinary urge incontinence in which electrical stimulation is applied to the sacral nerve through an implanted device was less acceptable to the general public than expected from clinical trials. Only 24 percent of patients underwent a "basic" trial run of the device, and only 51 percent of those who underwent an "advanced" evaluation of the device chose to receive a permanent device.

    In conducting further research, scientists can now work with an interactive version of the report on the UDA website that allows them to produce their own personalized tables and graphs, helping them customize and accelerate their research findings.

    "We hope the new edition of UDA will continue to help academic and clinical communities better understand the impact of these conditions and inspire us to continue to confront new problems and ideas," said Dr. Mark S. Litwin, professor and chair of the urology department at the Geffen School of Medicine and a researcher with the Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center.

    The new edition of UDA is the first full update since 2007 and includes data gathered between 2002 and 2007. The original report included data from 1992 to 2001.
