Sleep disorders correlate with nocturia in men. Whether a similar association with daytime lower urinary tract symptoms exists is less well studied. In this multicenter evaluation of the NHANES (National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey) database Fantus et al (page 000) identified 3,071 men who had completed the sleep, prostate and kidney questionnaires.1 The 8.8% of men who reported a sleep disorder had a significantly higher body mass index, higher incidence of diabetes and greater comorbidity.

Do we need imaging studies after percutaneous nephrolithotomy?

Editorial Comment

Followup imaging after PCNL should be obtained to assess for residual stone fragments and silent obstruction. There is also evidence that immediate postoperative imaging with CT may reduce readmissions due to missed complications (reference 28 in article). However, in the absence of clinical guidelines to recommend imaging type(s), frequency and interval it is not surprising that there is variation in imaging practices across the country.
