GOMEZ-VEIGA, F.; ALCARAZ-ASENSIO, A.; BURGOS-REVILLA, J.  and  COZAR-OLMO, J.M.. Advances in uro-oncology "OncoForum": the best of 2010. Actas Urol Esp [online]. 2011, vol.35, n.6, pp.315-324. ISSN 0210-4806.

Objective: To highlight the most important issues of the 2010 annual meetings of the European Association of Urology, EAU), the American Urological Association, AUA, the American Society of Clinical Oncology, ASCO, and the American Society for Therapeutic Radiology and Oncology, ASTRO. Methods: A group of experts in oncological urology selected the most important summaries of the four congresses. Subsequently, the revisors assessed the findings in relation to their present and future impact on clinical practice. This document includes the summaries with the highest points. Results: The following messages were considered important. In pT3 prostate cancer, postoperative radiotherapy (RT) improves local control and biochemical progression-free survival, with no significant impact on distant metastasis and overall survival. In patients with bladder cancer without muscle invasion and with the risk of intermediate recurrence, maintenance chemotherapy does not increase recurrence-free survival after transurethral resection. There is no evidence of a synergist effect of the combination of Temsirolimus/ Bevacizumab in patients with metastatic kidney cell carcinoma without prior treatment. In the SWENOTECA V protocol for the treatment of seminomatous germ-cell testicular cancer, the adjuvant RT was interrupted because the concern regarding the induction of secondary cancers was greater than the reduction of relapses. Conclusions: In 2010, new data was produced on the diagnosis and treatment in oncological urology, thanks to the interesting work of different trials.
