UROFLOWMETRY BEFORE AND AFTER MEATOTOMY IN BOYS WITH SYMPTOMATIC MEATAL STENOSIS FOLLOWING NEONATAL CIRCUMCISION – A LONG-TERM PROSPECTIVE STUDY
To assess uroflowmetry in the long-term follow-up of symptomatic meatal stenosis patients prior to and following meatotomy. Severity of symptoms and treatment success have been defined by patient history, physical examination and witnessed voiding. Uroflowmetry might add objective parameters for the assessment, however long term data is lacking.
Comparison of recurrence and postoperative complications between 3 different techniques for surgical repair of idiopathic hydrocele
To determine if recurrence rates and complication rates differ between three different techniques for treatment of idiopathic hydrocele: Jaboulay bottleneck, Hydrocelectomy, or Lord's technique.
To evaluate outcomes after focal ablative therapy for renal cell carcinoma (RCC) in transplant allograft kidneys
Randomized Controlled Trial of Aquablation vs. Transurethral Resection of the Prostate in Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia: One-Year Outcomes
To report 1-year safety and efficacy outcomes after either Aquablation or TURP for the treatment of lower urinary tract symptoms related to BPH.
Efficacy and Safety of Non-Invasive Intravesical Instillation of Onabotulinum Toxin-A for Overactive Bladder and Interstitial Cystitis/Bladder Pain Syndrome: Systematic Review and Meta-analysis
To investigate the efficacy and safety of non-invasive intravesical instillation of OBTX-A through systematic review and meta-analysis. Recently, several studies of non-invasive intravesical instillation of Onabotulinum Toxin-A (OBTX-A) have been published. However, its efficacy is not well validated yet compared to well-known efficacy of minimally invasive intravesical injection of OBTX-A.
Prostate Cancer Genomic Classifier Relates More Strongly to Gleason Grade Group than PI-RADS Score in Multi-Parametric Prostate MRI-Ultrasound Fusion Targeted Biopsies
To assess the association between Prostate Imaging Reporting and Data System version 2 (PI-RADSv2) score, the Decipher score and histologic grade of carcinoma in biopsy tissue among low- to intermediate-risk prostate cancer patients.
Using Aorta-Lesion-Attenuation Difference (ALAD) on Preoperative Contrast-Enhanced CT Scan to Differentiate between Malignant and Benign Renal Tumors
To evaluate the ability of Aorta−Lesion−Attenuation−Difference (ALAD) to differentiate malignant renal tumors from renal oncocytomas.
The acidity of urine varies greatly depending on a person’s diet and any medical conditions they may have. In this article, we discuss the normal pH range for urine, and what abnormal test results might mean.

Long-term Outcomes and Patterns of Failure Following Trimodality Treatment With Bladder Preservation for Invasive Bladder Cancer
To report long-term results on survival, toxicity, and patterns of failure of 3 different organ-sparing strategies for patients with muscle invasive bladder cancer.
Outcomes after Robotic-Assisted Pyeloplasty in Patients Presenting with Pain Versus Non-pain Presenting Symptoms
To assess the impact of presenting symptom or incidental finding on symptomatic and radiographic outcomes after robotic-assisted pyeloplasty (RAP).
Testicular Acute Segmental Infarct Following Endovascular Repair of a Juxta-renal Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm: Case Report and Literature Review
A 61-year-old male presented to our Accident & Emergency department with a three-day history of nausea and vomiting. On examination, he had a soft non-tender abdomen but pronounced pulsation of his abdominal aorta. A CT angiogram revealed a 6 cm juxta-renal abdominal aortic aneurysm with thrombus within the aneurysm sac and juxta-renal neck segment. There was also moderate atherosclerotic change of the common, internal and external iliac arteries bilaterally. Given the lack of a suitable infra-renal sealing zone for the stent graft, he underwent a complex endovascular aortic aneurysm repair using a stent graft (Cook Medical, Limerick, Ireland) with supra-renal coverage with four-vessel fenestrations (coeliac axis, superior mesenteric and left and right renal arteries).
To estimate effective dose of kidney-ureter-bladder (KUB) radiographs in a contemporary population of patients with urolithiasis.
To determine what factors of published urology research articles are associated with future citations.
To investigate how hepatocyte cell adhesion molecule (hepaCAM) regulates cancer energy metabolism through hypoxia-inducible factor (HIF-1α) in renal cell carcinoma (RCC).
Predictors Of Post-Operative Urinary Incontinence After Holmium Laser Enucleation Of The Prostate: 12 Months Follow Up
Holmium laser enucleation of the prostate (HoLEP) is a well-studied, contemporary surgical treatment for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), with multiple series reporting on its efficacy and safety.1-8 In these reports, varying rates of post-operative urinary incontinence (UI) have been described. During the early post-operative period, UI is common, but typically transient. Reported post-operative incontinence rates at less than 6 months range from 16.6-29.4%,1-6 with rates at 12 month follow up decreasing to 0-3.3%.
Correlation of ultrasonically determined bladder wall thickness and prostatic calcification with the UPOINT scoring system
To evaluate ultrasonically determined bladder wall thickness (BWT) and prostatic calcification presence, in men with chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CP/CPPS), and to correlate the findings with patient characteristics and the UPOINT classification system.
