Modified Transanosphincteric (York Mason) Repair of Non-Radiated Rectourinary Fistulae: Patient-Reported Fecal Continence Outcomes
To review our experience with the modified York Mason (MYM) procedure in treatment of rectourinary fistulae (RUF), and to assess fecal continence using patient reported measures.
Patency and Incontinence Rates after Robotic Bladder Neck Reconstruction for Vesicourethral Anastomotic Stenosis and Recalcitrant Bladder Neck Contractures: the TURNS Experience.
To review a robotic approach to recalcitrant bladder neck obstruction and assess success and incontinence rates.
Effect of Intratesticular Hematoma on Testis Microstructure, Spermatogenesis and Testosterone Production: Defining a Cut-Off Point for Significant Intratesticular Hematoma
To evaluate the effect of different degrees of intratesticular hematoma (ITH), a major consequence of blunt testis trauma, on testis microstructure and function. We determined a cut-off point for significant vs. nonsignificant ITH.
In an interesting article, Dawidek et al. reported that, in 92 adult patients with unilateral renal tumor, the optimal global renal function recovery occurred 6-12 weeks after minimally invasive partial nephrectomy. Global renal function “did not differ significantly from 1 year post-operatively”. Following surgery, nine patients (13%) developed de novo stage ≥3 chronic kidney disease (eGFR ≤60 ml/min/1.73m2) (1).
Photoselective Vaporisation of the Bladder for the Management of Radiation Cystitis – Technique and Initial Outcomes.
ObjectiveTo describe our technique utilising photoselective vaporisation of the bladder (PVB) for the management of haemorrhagic cystitis and initial results of 12 patients.Materials and MethodAn audit of theatre records of a single surgeon was performed to identify patients who had undergone PVB for management of radiation-cystitis. Technique: Rigid cystoscopy was performed. Ureteric catheters were placed and active bleeding sites targeted to optimise vision. Ablation was commenced using the vaporize function.
Bladder cysts are sac-like growths filled with fluid or gas in or around the bladder. Cysts can develop anywhere on the body, and bladder cysts are not common. Bladder cysts are usually noncancerous. They can be diagnosed using ultrasound imaging. Symptoms in men and women can include painful or excessive urination.
Surgical Management of Lower Urinary Tract Symptoms Attributed to Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia: AUA Guideline
Purpose; Male lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) secondary to benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is common in men and can have negative effects on quality of life (QOL). It is the hope that this Guideline becomes a reference on the effective evidence-based surgical management of LUTS/BPH.Materials/Methods: The evidence team searched Ovid MEDLINE, the Cochrane Library, and the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) database to identify studies indexed between January 2007 and September 2017.
Prospective, Randomized Controlled Trial Exploring the Effect of TachoSil® on Lymphocele Formation after Extended Pelvic Lymph Node Dissection in Prostate Cancer
To explore whether TachoSil®, a hemostatic patch, can reduce the incidence of lymphocele formation. Development of a lymphocele is a frequent complication after pelvic lymph node dissection (PLND) for nodal staging in prostate cancer.
Relationship between Intraprostatic Urethral Sphincter Status and Prostate Volume as Revealed by Magnetic Resonance Imaging
To evaluate the relationship between the lengths of two regions of the intraprostatic urethral sphincter, the distal region (from the apex to the adenoma; AA) and the proximal region (from the adenoma to the verumontanum; AV) and prostate volume (PV) in patients with clinical benign prostate hyperplasia.
