Shariat 1 NS-AUA 2009 Annual Meeting Dear Colleagues and Friends, It is my honor to invite you to the 61st Annual Meeting of the Northeastern Section of the American Urological Association (NS-AUA). Nearly twenty years ago I attended my first NS-AUA meeting at the encouragement of my mentor, Dr. B.M. Churchill. I believe this sectional meeting is a unique occasion to share Canadian perspectives and experiences with our American colleagues. It gives us a distinct opportunity to discuss controversial issues and novelties with renowned experts in a somewhat “intimate” setting. Coupling a state-of-the-art scientific program with the inimitable backdrop of the beautiful and historic Montréal, this year’s Annual Meeting is sure to be a success. Dr. Pierre Karakiewicz, Program Chair, and his team have organized an exciting educational program including distinguished expert speakers, point-counterpoint debates and clinically relevant plenary sessions to ensure an exceptional educational value of the meeting. Hot topics to be discussed at the plenary sessions include: Erectile Dysfunction after Radical Prostatectomy; Stress Urinary Incontinence and Unstable Bladder; Prostate Cancer and Chemo Prevention; Locally Advanced and Metastatic Kidney Cancer; Kidney Cancer and Androgen Deprivation Therapy; Prostatitis, Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia and Unstable Bladder. Invited speakers include: Sir Philip Ransley, MD, the George F. Slotkin Lecturer; Gerald Brock, MD; Martine Jolivet-Tremblay, MD; Eric A. Klein, MD; John Fitzpatrick, MD; Edward Messing, MD; Robert M. Moldwin, MD; Francesco Montorsi, MD; J. Curtis Nickel, MD and Shahrokh Shariat, MD. We are also very excited to once again feature a one-day Nursing Program on Friday, October 9, 2009. Drs. Paul Perrotte and Julie Franc-Guimond have organized a fun-filled social program highlighting many of Montréal’s unique cultural offerings. Join us for a night at the circus on Friday for the Fun Night event at Cirque Éloize! The renowned Cirque Éloize training center, located in Old Montréal, will be the setting for our cocktail reception and dinner for this incredible night of entertainment. Guests can take advantage of the Botanical Garden, Insectarium and Biodôme tour on Friday as well at the Old Montréal Historical Tour on Saturday. The closing banquet on Saturday night will feature Dr. Richard Béliveau, researcher and author of three books on nutrition and cancer. Dr. Béliveau and the hotel chef have designed an exquisite menu for this event that coincides with Dr. Béliveau’s cancer-fighting research On behalf of the entire organizing committee, I look forward to seeing you in Montréal! Anne-Marie Houle President, Northeastern Section of the AUA 2 Northeastern Section of the AUA — 2009 Annual Meeting Chers(ères) Collègues et Amis(es), C’est avec beaucoup d’enthousiasme que je vous invite chaleureusement à participer au 61ième Congrès Annuel de la section Northeastern de l’Association Américaine d’Urologie (NS-AUA). Il y a déjà 20 ans, à la suggestion de mon mentor le Dr. BM Churchill, j’assistais à mon premier congrès de la section. J’ai alors découvert un forum unique pour partager et discuter des perceptives et expériences canadiennes distinctives avec nos collègues américains. Le congrès offre aussi une occasion peu commune de débattre des sujets les plus chauds et controversés et d’être initié aux plus récents développements en urologie avec un accès privilégié aux experts reconnus dans ces domaines. Avec la vie socio-culturelle trépidante de Montréal en toile de fond et un programme scientifique à la fine pointe, le congrès annuel de 2009 promet d’être un évènement à ne pas manquer. Dr. Pierre Karakiewicz, Directeur Scientifique du Congrès, et son équipe, ont déjà confirmé une brochette de conférenciers exceptionnels et développé un programme éducationnel interactif excitant incluant débats, panels et plénières. La dysfonction érectile post prostatectomie radicale, l’incontinence urinaire et l’hyperactivité vésicale, la chimio prévention du cancer de la prostate, le cancer du rein localement avancé ou métastatique, la prostadynie et le syndrome de douleur pelvienne constituent les sujets chauds qui se partageront la vedette. La liste de nos conférenciers invités est des plus impressionnantes avec Sir Philip Ransley, MD, le conférencier George F. Slotkin; Gerald Brock, MD; Martine Jolivet-Tremblay, MD; Eric A. Klein, MD; John Fitzpatrick, MD; Edward Messing, MD; Robert M. Moldwin, MD; Francesco Montorsi, MD; J. Curtis Nickel, MD and Shahrokh Shariat, MD. Cette année sera aussi marquée par la deuxième édition d’un programme distinct d’une journée spécialement conçu pour les infirmiers et infirmières en urologie du territoire de la section qui se tiendra le 9 octobre 2009. Les Drs. Paul Perrotte and Julie Franc-Guimond ont mis sur pied un programme d’activités sociales mettant en valeur les principaux atouts de Montréal. La soirée de bienvenue au Fairmont Reine Élisabeth soulignera l’engagement de Montréal pour notre sport national, le hockey, avec des activités appropriées et des surprises de taille. Vendredi soir, nous célèbrerons nos artistes de cirque avec le Cirque Éloize qui nous accueillera dans ses installations d’entraînement dans le Vieux Montréal et qui se produira au cours de la soirée. Durant la journée, les accompagnants pourront profiter de visites guidées du Jardin Botanique, de l’Insectarium et du Biodôme vendredi et du Vieux Montréal, samedi. Le banquet de clôture aura lieu dans la salle de bal du Reine Élisabeth et mettra en vedette le Dr. Richard Béliveau, chercheur et auteur réputé dans le domaine de la nutrition et la prévention du cancer. Le chef exécutif du Fairmont et le Dr. Béliveau uniront leurs savoirs et savoir-faire pour nous concocter un menu aussi raffiné et exquis que santé. Au nom de tout le comité organisateur, je vous invite à vous joindre à nous à Montréal du 7 au 11 octobre 2009 pour le Congrès annuel de la NS-AUA. Nous vous attendons en grand nombre. Anne-Marie Houle Président, Northeastern Section of the AUA 3 N EEDS AS S ES S M ENT The field of urology is in constant evolution and established practices need to be periodically updated. This year’s Annual Meeting will provide participating urologists with several such updates. The topics will focus on urologic malignancies (e.g., prostate, bladder and renal cancers), as well as non-malignant pathologies (e.g., benign prostatic hypertrophy, urinary incontinence, prostatitis, overactive bladder and hypogonadism). Urologic malignancies contribute to a significant proportion of urologic referrals. In the past decade the treatment algorithms have changed for patients with renal cancer. Patients with small renal masses may benefit from multiple treatment alternatives, which range from surgery to surveillance. Patients with unresectable or metastatic renal cancer can now benefit from an array of systemic therapies. The urologist needs to play a central role, as cytoreductive nephrectomy and metastasectomy remain key management components for such patients and their timing is crucial. In the field of prostate cancer, several paradigms have changed. For example, controversy exists regarding screening. Novel preventive modalities will soon be introduced. Finally, the long-term risks and benefits of androgen ablation therapy affect the timing, the duration and the patterns of administration of this treatment modality. In bladder cancer several therapeutic alternatives exist for patients with non-muscle invasive high risk disease. These issues will be addressed in the program. Despite the importance of urologic malignancies, the bulk of urologic referrals are for non-malignant pathology. Prostatitis, benign prostatic hypertrophy, overactive bladder, hypogonadism and erectile dysfunction represent some of many common urologic complaints. Despite their apparent simplicity, the investigation and/or management of these conditions may represent a challenge. Moreover, novel pharmacological management options have multiplied for several of these conditions. For example, the number of medical management options for overactive bladder has increased exponentially. Conversely, effective treatment options for patients with prostatitis remain scarce. To address the diagnosis and management of these urologic conditions, the 2009 NS-AUA Annual Meeting will feature a total of 10 presentations that will be complemented by an equal number of expert panels and additional point-counterpoint sessions. Eight poster sessions will cover these areas with expert moderated discussions around the presented topics. Overall, the state-of-the-art lectures, podium and poster sessions presented by many North American and European experts promise to deliver excellent educational value. The meeting will offer up to 18.75 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. LEARN I NG OBJ ECTIVES At the conclusion of the 2009 NS-AUA Annual Meeting, participants should be able to: I interpret and evaluate the existing evidence in favor and against prostate cancer screening I critically appraise the data on available chemoprevention therapies for prostate cancer I weigh the pros and cons of early vs. delayed androgen deprivation therapy and critically appraise the value of continuous vs. intermittent therapy I critically appraise the risks and benefits of intravesicle therapy relative to early cystectomy for non-muscle invasive high risk bladder cancer patients I gain a thorough understanding of medical management of overactive bladder I obtain an update of available management options and their efficacy for patients with chronic prostatitis I review the magnitude of urologic risks associated with testosterone supplementation I examine the value of available treatment regimens for erectile dysfunction in the aging male, as well as after urologic surgery I reassess the central role of the urologist in the management of surgically unresectable and metastatic renal cancer, and become familiar with the existing molecules for the management of unresectable and/or metastatic renal cell carcinoma and with the common toxicities 4 Northeastern Section of the AUA — 2009 Annual Meeting C O N T I N U I N G M E D I CA L E D U CAT I O N Accreditation: The American Urological Association (AUA) is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

The NS-AUA started funding research in 1995 through a grant from Searle Canada and Searle USA. A Research and Education Fund was established to assure the membership of the NS-AUA continuing excellence in research and educational activity within the Section. The NS-AUA Scholarship Program was established in 1998 to provide financial scholarships to support research and educational projects. The Section offers up to two scholarship awards annually. These Young Investigator Awards provide financial assistance to a researcher in basic or clinical sciences related to urology, and to acquiring, developing or improving his or her knowledge and skills in a specific aspect of the specialty. In all, 19 researchers have been awarded research scholarships. Through the generosity of our Section members and corporate supporters, the Research and Education Fund continues to grow.

G EORG E E. S LOTKI N Excerpt from the Waterways chapter: “No history of the Northeastern Section is complete without a short biography of this indefatigable urologist. His later work with E.A. Mercer, ‘Case of epispadias with a double urethra,’ was published in The Journal of Urology in 1953. Dr. George E. Slotkin (1890-1971) was born in New York City but soon moved with his parents to Buffalo, NY, where he spent his professional career. We acknowledge him today as a founder, the first benefactor, and the first historian of the NS, but there is more to his story. Obviously, this change in his work reflects the change in urology from its early focus on genitourinary disease to its present focus as a surgical specialty. Dr. Slotkin was named Clinical Professor of Urology Emeritus in 1954 by the University of Buffalo Medical School and continued his private practice until 1964. After retirement, he continued to write, contributing a fascinating chapter about the history of the Northeastern Section to History of Urology. It is a priceless, logical record of carefully researched facts. If one were to hold up a mirror to the changing face of urology in the first half of the 20th century, it would be well reflected with an image of George E. Slotkin. A graduate of the University of Buffalo Medical School, Dr. Slotkin did postgraduate work at the New York City Post Graduate Hospital, the University of Vienna, and the University of Budapest. In 1918, he became a clinical professor of urology at the University of Buffalo. During the late 1940s, his clinical interest was tuberculosis of the urinary tract, which he treated with chalamagoric acid. Even though results of his work in this area remain inconclusive, other fruits of his career do not. Friends and colleagues of his time were fond of saying, ‘George Slotkin has three loves: urology, his wife Helene, and his Rolls Royce...not necessarily in that order!’ His early work, ‘Nephroptosis, a resurrected disease,’ was published in The Urologic and Cutaneous Review in 1938. His obituary notice implies that he may have been the first American invited to join the Canadian Urological Association. Dr. and Mrs. Slotkin did not have any children; his estate included a generous bequest to the Northeastern Section to provide funding for invited guest speakers at our annual meetings.” Meyer, Robert, MD and Margaret, “History of the Northeastern Section of the American Urological Association: Waterways.” The American Urological Association Centennial History 1902 – 2002.

TOU RS The following tours have been reserved for guests on Friday, October 9 and Saturday, October 10, 2009. Each tour group will meet at the Mansfield entrance in the lobby of the Fairmont Queen Elizabeth Hotel prior to departure. Guests are encouraged to pre-register for tours when they pre-register for the conference, as spots will fill quickly. On-site tour registration will take place at the hotel on Thursday, October 8 between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. and will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. Payments can be made on site at the hotel for any tours that have not been pre-registered or pre-paid. Please note that if minimum numbers are not met, tours will be cancelled. Friday, October 9, 2009 Tour Option: Tour Time: Cost: Botanical Garden, Insectarium & Biodôme 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. $57 [Includes taxi transportation; professional tour guide; entrance admission to the Botanical Gardens, Insectarium and Biodôme; guide and driver gratuities; and all applicable taxes.] Travel by reserved cab to spend a fabulous day exploring Montréal’s flora and fauna! The Montréal Botanical Garden (Le Jardin Botanique) houses a collection of 22,000 plant species and cultivars, 10 exhibition greenhouses, 30 thematic gardens, as well as teams of researchers and informative staff. The Montréal Botanical Garden ranks as one of the world’s largest and most spectacular botanical gardens. A magical exhibition of lanterns will be on display in the Chinese Garden while we are there. We will also explore the ever-popular Montréal Insectarium— located adjacent to the Botanical Garden—which has welcomed hundreds of thousands of visitors intrigued by these misunderstood creatures, so often wrongly feared and despised. The goal of the Insectarium is to awaken visitors to the wonders of the insect world, and to explain how insects play an essential part in ensuring the Earth’s ecological balance. Following the Insectarium tour, the group will be escorted across the street and through the site of the 1976 Olympic Games to what was originally designed as the cycling track. An oasis in the heart of the city, the facility has been transformed into the Montréal Biodôme, which recreates four distinct climates that are home to the native flora and fauna of the region, truly some of the most beautiful ecosystems of the world: the lush and humid Tropical Forest, the Laurentian Forest, the St. Lawrence Marine Ecosystem, and the Polar Worlds of the Arctic and Antarctic. Once the tour of the Biodôme has come to an end, you will take reserved taxi cabs back downtown where you’ll find a variety of restaurants and an excellent opportunity to explore the downtown core with an experienced guide. Following lunch on your own, you will be escorted back to the hotel. Saturday, October 10, 2009 Tour Option: Tour Time: Cost: Old Montréal Historical Tour 12:30 – 4 p.m. $63 [Includes transportation, professional tour guide, Pointe-àCallière Museum entrance fees, guide and driver gratuities, and all applicable taxes.] Montreal City Hall 31 From the place where the city was founded in 1642 at Pointe-à-Callière, to the lively destination of Place Jacques Cartier, you’ll explore the rich history of this spectacular metropolis. With simplicity and humor, your guide will lead your group through a maze of cobblestone streets and historic buildings for a unique look at Old Montréal. The coach will drop off the guests at Pointe-àCallière for a tour of the Museum, and from there a guide will escort the group through Old Montréal—from Place d’Armes and Place Royal, to the Court houses, Château Ramezay and Bonsecours Market—offering a charming look at this city’s rich history. The Lachine Canal path, with more than one million visitors each year, is the most popular path in Canada. It extends more than 11 km (7 miles) and is a national historic site. Its banks, while welcoming to cyclists, runners and strollers, are also considered the cradle of industrialization in Canada. For breathtaking scenery with a historic touch, this is the place to be. You can pre-register for this event when you preregister for the conference on the Web site, or you can register on site. Prizes will be given to the top three male and female runners.

Patients were randomized to receive either Vesicare 5 mg OD or tolterodine ER 4 mg OD. After 4 weeks of treatment, patients had the option to request a dose increase but were dummied throughout as product labelling only allowed an increase for those on Vesicare from 5 mg to 10 mg OD. Vesicare demonstrated a greater reduction in urgency and urge incontinence episodes from baseline than tolterodine ER2 U Urgency: -47% (-2.85) Vesicare vs -41% (-2.42) tolterodine ER U Urge incontinence: -61% (-1.42) Vesicare vs -39% (-0.83) tolterodine ER INDICATIONS: Vesicare (solifenacin succinate) is indicated for the treatment of overactive bladder in adults with symptoms of urge urinary incontinence, urinary urgency and urinary frequency. Safety and effectiveness in children have not yet been established. CONTRAINDICATIONS: Patients with urinary retention, dependent on dialysis, gastroparesis or narrow angle glaucoma. Patients who are hypersensitive to this drug or to any ingredient in the formulation or component of the container. Women of childbearing potential should be considered for treatment only if using adequate contraception. ADVERSE EVENTS: Expected side effects of antimuscarinic agents are dry mouth, constipation, blurred vision (accommodation abnormalities), urinary retention, and dry eyes. The most common adverse events reported in patients treated with Vesicare were dry mouth and constipation and the incidence of these side effects was higher in the 10 mg (27.6% and 13.4%, respectively) compared to the 5 mg (10.9% and 5.4%, respectively) dose group (4.2% and 2.9% for placebo, respectively).
