Tumor Contact Surface Area As a Predictor of Functional Outcomes After Standard Partial Nephrectomy: Utility and Limitations

Urology (Gold Journal) In Press - Tue, 03/06/2018 - 00:00
To evaluate contact surface area (CSA) between the tumor and parenchyma as a predictor of ipsilateral parenchyma and function preserved after partial nephrectomy (PN). Previous studies suggested that CSA is a strong predictor of functional outcomes but the limitations of CSA have not been adequately explored.

A Homeopathic Alternative to Potassium Citrate in Patients with Recurrent Nephrolithiasis

Urology (Gold Journal) In Press - Tue, 03/06/2018 - 00:00
The patient is a 55-year-old man with a history of Crohn's disease requiring multiple small bowel resections and a history of uric acid stones. He developed bilateral staghorn calculi and has undergone numerous interventions including 3 left percutaneous nephrolithotomies (PCNL's), 2 right PCNL's, and multiple ureteroscopies with holmium laser lithotripsy (URS/HLL). His most recent procedure, performed at our institution, was a right PCNL in 2013.

Multiple regions of interest on multi-parametric magnetic resonance imaging are not associated with increased detection of clinically significant prostate cancer on fusion biopsy

Perioperative Immunonutrition Modulates Inflammatory Response after Radical Cystectomy: Results of a Pilot Randomized Controlled Clinical Trial

Poor preoperative nutritional status is associated with higher complication rates in bladder cancer patients after radical cystectomy (RC). Given the short lag time between diagnosis and RC, we compared a short-term Specialized IMmunonutrition (SIM) to a standard oral nutrition supplement (ONS) on the acute inflammatory response and arginine status in RC patients.

What Impacts the All Cause Risk of Reoperation after Pelvic Organ Prolapse Repair? A Comparison of Mesh and Native Tissue Approaches in 110,329 Women

Several factors are hypothesized to impact the risks of mesh-augmented pelvic organ prolapse (POP) repair including, 1) characteristics of the material itself, 2) surgical experience, and 3) patient selection. We present a large population-based approach to explore their impact on outcomes and to describe an ideal mesh usage strategy.

Editorial Comment

The optimal duration of test stimulation for stage 1 SNM is an arbitrary number. Prolonged staged evaluation, which has been hypothesized to improve long-term success while reducing the duration of test stimulation, could minimize risks of infection and optimize patient satisfaction.1,2 The authors concluded that the mean time to 50% or greater improvement in all patients was 3.3 days with no difference in time to success between those with OAB and NOR, and all patients reached 50% improvement within 9 days.

Editorial Comment

Most urologists have assumed the dogma that the first few months of neurological spinal shock are associated with an atonic detrusor muscle. This assumption has likely persisted because patients with a neurological diagnosis such as SCI generally never interact with a urologist until they have clinically manifested bladder related problems.

Genital Mobilization of Intravesical Phallus Associated With Covered Cloacal Exstrophy: A Case Report

Urology (Gold Journal) In Press - Fri, 03/02/2018 - 00:00
Cloacal exstrophy is the most severe form of the exstrophy-epispadias complex, occurring in approximately 1 of every 200,000 to 400,000 live births. Variant such as covered cloacal exstrophy presentations are only one-tenth as common. Although exstrophy-epispadias complexes include genital anomalies, intravesical phallus is very rare. We report an extremely rare case of intravesical phallus with covered cloacal exstrophy that was successfully treated by phallic mobilization.
