Utilization of automated performance metrics to measure surgeon performance during robotic vesicourethral anastomosis and methodical development of a training tutorial

To develop and validate automated performance metrics (APMs) to measure surgeon performance of vesicourethral anastomosis (VUA) during robotic-assisted radical prostatectomy (RRP). Furthermore, we seek to methodically develop a standardized training tutorial for the robotic VUA.

The Application of Suctioning Flexible Ureteroscopy with Intelligent Pressure-Control in Treating Upper Urinary Tract Calculi on Patients with a Solitary Kidney

Urology (Gold Journal) In Press - Fri, 05/18/2018 - 00:00
The position of the end of the ureteral sheath during surgery should be determined based on the location of the stone and the range of flexible motion of the ureteroscope at the time of lithotripsy. In lithotripsy for ureteral calculus, the sheath should be as close as possible to be beneath the ureteral calculus; in lithotripsy for kidney stones, the front end of the sheath should be as close as possible to the outlet of the renal pelvis but should not limit the moving activity of the bendable part of the flexible ureteroscope.

Flank positioning has the potential to improve outcomes and decrease complications not only in patients with obesity and pulmonary compromise, but also in a subgroup of patients with certain anomalies who are at higher risk for visceral injury. Mobility of the kidney during tract dilatation, although rare, is a drawback associated with the flank position. Renal mobility may result in short dilatation and failure to enter the calyceal system. Using a bi-prong forceps to dissect and dilate the tract under direct endoscopic vision as well as telescopic dilatation are salvage techniques to overcome kidney mobility.
