Telemedicine represents an increasingly popular tool for healthcare delivery in the United States. In this study by Andino et al,1 the predicted value of video visits was obtained by a tertiary care outpatient clinic as part of a telemedicine pilot program. Not surprisingly, the authors found a high level of patient interest in video visits largely based on convenience-related factors, such as improved time efficiency and access to their urologist. This study adds to the existing body of evidence that characterizes the patient perspective in relation to telemedicine, and also provides a useful strategy for practices considering telemedicine implementation.

Defining Novel and Practical Metrics to Assess the Deliverables of Multiparametric Magnetic Resonance Imaging/Ultrasound Fusion Prostate Biopsy

Multiparametric magnetic resonance (mpMRI)/ultrasound targeted prostate biopsy (TB) is touted as a tool to improve prostate cancer care. Yet, the true clinical utility of TB over transrectal ultrasound-guided prostate biopsy (TRUS-B) has not been systematically analyzed. We introduce two metrics to better quantify and report the deliverables of TB.

Atypical Epithelioid Angiomyolipoma: a Rare Variant with Malignant Potential

Urology (Gold Journal) In Press - Thu, 10/05/2017 - 23:00
A 28 year-old woman presented to urology clinic for consultation regarding a cystic left renal mass. The lesion was incidentally diagnosed in 2014 during an emergency room evaluation of abdominal pain. At that time, it was noted to be 2.9 x 3.2 x 3.6 cm in size. She sought multiple opinions from outside urologists, and recommendations varied from surveillance to partial nephrectomy. A repeat MRI in 2015 showed that the tumor diameter had increased to 4.5cm (Figure 1)

Editorial Comment

Bors and Blinn first reported investigations of the bulbocavernous reflex as well as the IWT (reference 1 in article), which continue to be common tests for any neurourological investigation. The current authors investigated the IWT in a double-blind trial to determine whether there are any temperature receptors in the vesical mucosa. Initially they instilled 60 ml ice-cold water every 30 seconds in the bladder and asked the patient to retain it. The test was recorded as positive if the fluid was expelled in less than 60 seconds.
