Surgery of Penile & Urethral Carcinoma Penile Cancer Male Urethral Cancer Female Urethral Cancer
Penile Cancer Typically Squamous Involves: –Glans penis –Coronal Sulcus –Inner preputial skin
Penile Cancer Biopsy –Imperative to include area of question as well as adjacent normal tissue Allows for evaluation of depth of invasion –May be punch or excisional –Urethral meatus involvement Urethroscopy is mandatory
Penile Cancer Laser Therapy –Carbon Dioxide (CO 2 ) –Neodymium:yttrium-aluminum-garnet (Nd:YAG) –Potassium titanyl phosphate (KTP) –Circumcision is usually recommended at the time of laser surgery if not already done
Laser Therapy CO 2 –Wavelength: 10,600 nm –Skin depth: 0.01 mm –Blood vessels: 0.5 mm –33% local recurrence –Healing time: 5 – 8 weeks
Laser Therapy Nd:YAG –Most commonly reported –Skin dept: 3 – 6 mm –20% recurrence Stage T1 –Healing time: 8 – 12 weeks Combination –Surgery and laser to the base 18% – 20% recurrence
Laser Therapy KTP –Wavelength: 532 nm –Intermediate depth Between CO 2 and Nd:YAG –Healing time: 8 – 12 weeks
Laser Therapy Technical improvements –5% Acetic acid wraps –5-aminolevulinic acid Final thoughts –Reasonable for Tis and T1 SCC –T2 patients refusing aggressive surgery
Mohs Micrographic Surgery Excision of penile cancer by thin tissue layers Frozen sectioning with immediate pathological evaluation Cure rates (5 years) –< 1 cm: 100% –1 – 2 cm: 83% –2- 3 cm: 75% –> 3 cm: 50%
Mohs Micrographic Surgery Best suited for small superficial cancers Comparable to partial penectomy –In the right setting
Conservative Surgical Excision Local excision and Glansectomy In the setting of low stage penile cancer Traditionally, 2 cm margin Grade plays a central role –Grade 1 & 2 Histologic extent 5 mm Location also plays a role –Coronal Sulcus 50% recurrence
Conservative Surgical Excision Glanular tumors –Difficult secondary inability to achieve adequate margin –Preputial skin flap or split thickness skin graft (STSG) can assist in closure –Recurrence: Traditionally 32 – 40% Contemporary studies 8 – 11%

Conservative Surgical Excision Total Glansectomy –First described in 1996 –Used in patients with stage T1 & T2 SCC of the glans, prepuce, and coronal sulcus –Dissassembly of glans and distal corpus spongiosum Frozen section for margin evaluation STSG with urethrostomy formation –Benefits Voiding Sexual function preservation
Partial Penectomy Most common surgical procedure for treatment of patients primary SCC Penile amputation –2 cm proximal to the tumor –Goals Voiding Sexual function
Partial Penectomy Figure 32-3 Partial penectomy. A, Incision with ligation and division of dorsal penile vessels within Buck's fascia (inset). B, Corpora transected and urethra spatulated. C and D, Closure of corpora cavernosa. E, Final closure with construction of urethrostomy.
Partial Penectomy 1.0 to 1.5 cm distal to the cavernosal amputation site Urethrostomy is created by approximating the urethra to the surrounding penile skin Lengthening –Suspensory ligament division
Total Penectomy At the level of the suspensory ligament –Corpra cavernosa proximally remains Performed for large or proximal Lesions Patients void sitting down via a perineal urethrostomy
Total Penectomy Figure 32-5 Total penectomy. A, Incision. B, Transection of the corpora near the level of the pubis. C, Mobilization of the remaining urethra off of the proximal corporal bodies. D, Transposition of the urethra through a curvilinear perineal incision. E, Completion of perineal urethrostomy.
Foley left for 7 – 10 days
Radical Penectomy The corporal bodies are dissected to the tips of the crura, which are completely excised. Urethra is matured into a standard perineal urethrostomy.
Regional Lymph Nodes SCC on the penis spreads regionally before it spreads distantly. –No skip lesions. One midline structure can metastasize to either side or bilaterally. Metastatic lymph nodes confer a poorer prognosis –Aggressive lymphadenectomy: cure in 30 – 60%
Superficial lymph nodes (5 groups) Figure Superficial inguinal lymph nodes and the branches of the saphenous vein. SEV, superficial epigastric; SEPV, superficial external pudendal; MCV, medial cutaneous; LCV, lateral cutaneous; SCIV, superficial circumflex iliac.
Inguinal Anatomy Deep inguinal nodes –Medial to femoral vein in the femoral canal –Cloquet – most cephalad of the deep group Between the femoral vein and the lacunar ligament –External iliac nodes Deep inguinal Obturator Hypogastric
Deep Inguinal Nodes
Inguinal Anatomy Skin blood supply –Common femoral artery Superficial external pudendal Superficial circumflex iliac Superficial epigastric arteries Transverse skin incision compromises the least amount of blood supply
Inguinal Anatomy Femoral nerve –Deep to iliacus fascia –Motor Pectineus Quadriceps femoris Sartorius –Sensation Anterior thigh
Sentinel Node Biopsy First describe by Cabanas in 1977 Results a have been variable
Modified Inguinal Lymphadenectomy Catalona 1988 –Same therapeutic benefit –Less morbidity –Key aspects 1.Shorter skin incision 2.Excludes the area lateral to the femoral artery and caudal to the fossa ovalis 3.Saphenous vein preservation 4.Elimination of sartorius muscle transposition
Modified Inguinal Lymphadenectomy Figure Limits of standard and modified groin dissection. (From Colberg JW, Andriole GL, Catalona WJ: Long-term follow-up of men undergoing modified inguinal lymphadenectomy for carcinoma of the penis. Br J Urol 1997;79:54-57.)

Key Points of Penile Cancer Early meticulous surgical management with close follow-up generally provides the best opportunity for cure of penile SCC. Include some adjacent normal tissue with the specimen to allow optimal evaluation of the depth of invasion of the cancer during biopsy.
Key Points of Penile Cancer Conservative surgical approaches may be reasonable for patients with stage Tis and small T1 SCC of the penis and for patients with manageable T2 tumors who refuse more aggressive surgical treatment. Partial penectomy with a 2-cm surgical margin remains the most common surgical procedure for treatment of the primary tumor in patients with invasive SCC and affords excellent local control in most instances.
Key Points of Penile Cancer In patients at risk for the development of inguinal metastatic disease and with no palpable adenopathy, modified inguinal lymphadenectomy provides excellent assessment of the regional nodes and may be converted to a full lymphadenectomy if metastatic disease is detected. Penile cancer metastases to the pelvic lymph nodes do not occur in the setting of negative ipsilateral inguinal nodes.
Male Urethral Cancer
Male Urethral Carcinoma Rare and presents in the 5 th decade of life. Etiology is typically secondary to chronic inflammation. –STDs –Urethritis –Urethral stricture –HPV 16
Male Urethral Carcinoma Insidious onset 50% have stricture 25% have STD history 96% symptomatic –Palpable urethral mass –Obstructive voiding symptoms
Pathology Direct extension Lymphatic invasion Anterior – superficial and deep inguinal, and occasionally external iliac nodes Posterior – pelvic lymph nodes Palpable lymph nodes are present 20% of the time and usually represent metastatic disease
Evaluation & Staging Primary tumor (T) (male and female) TX Primary tumor cannot be assessed T0 No evidence of primary tumor Ta Noninvasive papillary, polypoid, or verrucous carcinoma TisCarcinoma in situ T1 Tumor invades subepithelial connective tissue T2 Tumor invades any of the following: corpus spongiosum, prostate, periurethral muscle T3 Tumor invades any of the following: corpus cavernosum, beyond prostatic capsule, anterior vagina, bladder neck T4 Tumor invades other adjacent organs Transitional cell carcinoma of the prostate Tis-pu Carcinoma in situ, involvement of the prostatic urethra Tis-pd Carcinoma in situ, involvement of the prostatic ducts T1 Tumor invades subepithelial connective tissue T2 Tumor invades any of the following: prostatic stroma, corpus spongiosum, periurethral muscle T3 Tumor invades any of the following: corpus cavernosum, beyond prostatic capsule, bladder neck (extraprostatic extension) T4 Tumor invades other adjacent organs (invasion of the bladder)
Evaluation & Staging Regional lymph nodes (N) NXRegional lymph nodes cannot be assessed N0No regional lymph node metastasis N1Metastasis in a single lymph node, 2 cm or less in greatest dimension N2Metastasis in a single lymph node, more than 2 cm but less than 5 cm in greatest dimension; or in multiple nodes, none greater than 5 cm N3Metastasis in a lymph node greater than 5 cm in greatest dimension Distant metastasis (M) MX Presence of distant metastasis cannot be assessed M0No distant metastasis M1Distant metastasis
Treatment Primarily a surgically treated disease process Anterior urethral lesion is more amendable to surgical control Posterior disease –Associated with extensive local invasion –Distant mets
Carcinoma of the Penile Urethra Superficial, papillary, low-grade tumors –TUR –Local excision Infiltrating –Lesions located to distal half of penis Partial penectomy with 2 cm margin –Lesions proximal Total penectomy
Carcinoma of the Penile Urethra
Prophylactic inguinal lymph node dissection (LND) offers no benefit
Carcinoma of the Bulbomemebranous Urethra Poor survival figures for all recorded forms of treatment –Radical surgery offers best longer-term prognosis Radical cystoprostatectomy Pelvic lymphadenectomy Total penectomy Pubic rami resection GU diaphragm excision
Carcinoma of the Bulbomemebranous Urethra
Radiation Therapy & Chemotherapy XRT –Early-stage lesions of the anterior urethra –Preserves skin –Results are undetermined Chemo –MVAC good for TCC lesions –Platinum based therapy Results poor Combo therapy –XRT and Chemo –Surgery and Chemo
Management of the Urethra after Cystectomy General Considerations –Cancer recurrence following cystoprostatectomy 2.1 – 11.1% recurrence (cutaneous diverison) 0.5 – 4% recurrence (orthotopic neobladder) Frozen section of apical margins of prostatic urethra during surgery should be NEGATIVE. 40% of recurrence within 1 year –18 months median
Management of the Urethra after Cystectomy Traditionally urethral wash was acceptable –Survival benefit has been questioned Patients who have positive voided cytology or symptoms: –Urethral bleeding –Discharge –Palpable mass Cystoscopy and Biopsy –Superficial recurrence can be treated with BCG via urethral perfusion
Total Urethrectomy after Cutaneous Diversion Care must be exercised in completing the proximal dissection, in view of the possible postcystectomy adherence of intestine to the superior surface of the urogenital diaphragm.
Total Urethrectomy after Orthotopic Diversion Abdominal perineal approach Can use previous bowel for diversion –Careful dissection to preserve blood supply Commonly perform ileal conduit, but carefully selected patient may undergo a continent reservoir creation
Urethrectomy after Cystoprostatectomy
Key Points: Male Urethral Cancer 80% of male urethral cancers are SCC –Bulbomembranous urethra most common site Anterior urethral carcinoma –More amenable to surgical control –Better prognosis Posterior urethral carcinoma –Extensive local invasion –Distant metastasis
Key Points: Male Urethral Cancer Prophylactic inguinal lymph node dissection has no benefit Low incidence of urethral recurrence after orthotopic bladder replacement –Negative frozen-section biopsy of the distal prostatic urethral margin during surgery
Key Points: Male Urethral Cancer Converting a patient to cutaneous conduit urinary diversion, bowel from the existing orthotopic neobladder can often be reconfigured with its blood supply intact and used for this purpose.
Female Urethral Cancer
Epidemiology, Etiology, & Clinical Presentation Epidemiology –more in women, 4:1 –Only urological malignancy with female predominance –0.2% of all GU malignancies –<1% of CA of female GU tract –85% occurs in white women ( of 1200 cases reported)
Epidemiology, Etiology, & Clinical Presentation Etiology –Leukoplakia, chronic irritation, caruncles, polyps, partuition, HPV, other viral infection –Urethral diverticula 5% of CA –Predisposition?
Epidemiology, Etiology, & Clinical Presentation Clinical Presentation –98% have symptoms Most common obstructive Dysuria, urethral bleeding, frequency, palpable, urethral mass, induration Otherwise healthy middle-aged woman with new-onset UR? –Think urethral tumor (and neurolgic disease…..)
Epidemiology, Etiology, & Clinical Presentation Patterns of Spread –Local Direct extension, may skin/vulva If proximal may extend: –Posteriorly into vagina –Proximally into bladder –Lymphatic involvement: presentation (palpable nodes) ½ of pts with advanced/proximal tumors –Hematogenous Lung, liver, bone, brain
Treatment Distal Urethral CA –Small, exophytic, superficial tumor from urethral meatus: Options: –Circumferential excision of distal urethra & portion of anterior vaginal wall –Laser coag described (small, distal tumors) –Urethrectomy & diversion »Anterior vaginal wall, periurethral tissues to bladder neck »Ileovesicostomy, appendicovesicostomy to native bladder
Treatment Facts, surgical data: –Distal tumor Low stage Cure rate 70-90% with local excision –21 % with < T2 treated with partial urethrectomy had a local recurrence (Dimarco et al 2004) –0-50% recurrence with partial urethrectomy +/- rads (Hahn 1991, Ghelier 1998)
Treatment Prognosis –Radiotherapy alone 0-57% survival (5 yrs) –Combo (XRT + surgery) Mean survival 54% (5 yrs) –Chemo + XRT + surgery Local, distant control in advanced CA –SCC »5 FU + Mitomycin C –TCC »MVAC or Gemcitabine
Urethral recurrence after Cystectomy in women Facts –Incidence of CA involving urethra in females undergoing cystectomy for CaB 1-13% –Bladder neck involvement and urethral sparing surgery (controversial) –Few reported cases of urethral CA despite increasing # of orthotopic neobladders (urethral preservation)
Urethral recurrence after Cystectomy in women Limited data No conclusive treatment Rec. –Options (in the absence of mets): Urethrectomy, resection of anastomosis with conversion to continent cutaneous diversion Conversion to cutaneous urinary conduit with bowel from orthotopic diversion
