Dr. Felix Campos-Juanatey (ES), a member of the EAU Guidelines Panel for Urethral Strictures, answers questions on the diagnosis of urethral strictures and follow-up after urethral surgery.  This podcast begins with details on what patient information is necessary to collect during an in-depth clinical interview and examination to make an accurate diagnosis. Dr. Campos-Juanatey shares the latest guidelines on when and how to conduct regular follow-up with patients after urethral strictures, in order to detect any complications or recurrences. This includes a useful timeline from 3-months up to 5-years (or longer) depending on low risk- and high-risk patients, and the use of flow rate analysis, questionnaires and anatomical assessment.Lastly, some information is included on how evaluate if a urethral intervention has been successful or not, taking into account the practical and functional satisfaction of a patient.

In this edition, Dr. Constance Thibault (FR), associate editor of the UROONCO PCa educational platform, discusses triplet therapy for the treatment of metastatic hormone-sensitive prostate cancer (mHSPC). In the last decade, the outcome of metastatic prostate cancer has been improved by intensifying the systemic therapy with the addition of docetaxel and/or new hormonal therapies. Clinicians now have several treatment options to offer their patients with mHSPC. This raises the issue of the optimal choice? Dr. Thibault answers questions about why triplet therapy (ADT + DOCETAXEL + NHT) is recommended to mHSPC patients, and do all patients benefit from a triplet therapy or only specific subgroups?Lastly, Dr. Thibault talks about which triplet therapy is recommended to use in clinical practice assuming that abiraterone and darolutamide are both approved in combination with ADT + DOCETAXEL for mHSPC patients.
