Pathology Update for Urologists

Description

Prostatic pathology has undergone a number of changes in the past 5 to 10 years. The impact of these advances is still being felt. Many, but not all pathologists are abreast of these developments, but few urologists are. To optimize communication and decision-making, urologists and pathologists alike need to understand these issues.

We invite authors to submit original research and review articles that are on the forefront of urologic pathology. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • The continued importance but declining predictive value for cancer, of high-grade prostatic intraepithelial neoplasia
  • Atypical small acinar proliferation (ASAP), suspicious for cancer: its various terminology, ways to resolve it in some cases, and the characteristics of cancer detected after initial ASAP diagnosis
  • The ongoing shift in cancer grading and its relation to the International Society for Urologic Pathology 2005 consensus
  • Resolving the controversy over grading the cribriform pattern of prostate cancer
  • The changing face of prostate tumors
  • The use of mapping (saturation) biopsy to delineate the extent of cancer for targeted focal therapy
  • New findings from services performing second opinion review of prostate slides
  • Importance of additional “extreme” apical prostate biopsies in optimizing cancer detection
  • Bladder neck involvement by prostate cancer
  • Intraprostatic seminal vesicle involvement by prostate cancer
  • The importance of margin status in predicting biochemical recurrence in radical prostatectomy. This includes reporting the linear length of positive margin and the Gleason score of tumor at the margin, according to recent CAP guidelines
  • Intraductal prostate cancer and ETS gene aberrations

Before submission authors should carefully read over the journal's Author Guidelines, which are located at http://www.hindawi.com/journals/pc/guidelines/. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal Manuscript Tracking System at http://mts.hindawi.com/ according to the following timetable:
