Paratesticular Liposarcoma Masquerading as an Inguinal Hernia

Urology (Gold Journal) In Press - Fri, 12/01/2017 - 06:00
A man with left scrotal swelling felt to represent inguinal hernia underwent CT scan for reported bleeding after prostate biopsy. CT scan revealed a 15 cm extratesticular left scrotal mass containing both fat and soft tissue components, raising concern for dedifferentiated liposarcoma. At surgery and pathology, the mass was separate from the left testis, epididymis, and spermatic cord. Histopathologic findings were consistent with paratesticular dedifferentiated liposarcoma.

Organ Preservation for Recurrent Urethral Adenocarcinoma with Concurrent Chemotherapy and Radiation

Urology (Gold Journal) In Press - Fri, 12/01/2017 - 06:00
Urethral adenocarcinoma of males is a rare disease with limited prospective data to define optimal treatment. Surgical excision remains the primary treatment for early stage disease. Multimodality therapy with a combination of chemotherapy, radiation, and/or surgery has been explored in patients with locally advanced disease. We present the case of a 45-year-old-man with a locally recurrent urethral adenocarcinoma after initial surgical resection managed successfully with combined weekly cisplatinum and radiation therapy.

Research needs to understand self-management in men with LUTS: a review and summary of an NIDDK workshop

Lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) are common in men and impose significant economic, health and quality of life burdens. Despite an expanding view of LUTS etiology and challenges with medical and surgical treatments, LUTS research has continued to focus primarily on surgical or pharmaceutical treatment of urinary tract dysfunction, with little attention to behavioral, cognitive, or social factors. Further, self-management research is relatively underdeveloped in urology, despite its potential to support behavioral, pharmacologic, and surgical treatments for LUTS.

Urinary Bladder Versus Gastrointestinal Tissue: a Comparative Study of Their Biomechanical Properties for Urinary Tract Reconstruction

Urology (Gold Journal) In Press - Wed, 11/29/2017 - 06:00
ObjectiveTo evaluate the mechanical properties of gastrointestinal (GI) tissue segments and to compare them with the urinary bladder for urinary tract reconstruction.MethodsUrinary bladders and GI tissue segments were sourced from porcine models (n=6, 7 months old [5 male; 1 female]). Uniaxial planar tension tests were performed on bladder tissue and Cauchy stress-stretch ratio responses were compared with stomach, jejunum, ileum and colonic GI tissue.ResultsThe biomechanical properties of the bladder differed significantly to jejunum, ileum and colonic GI tissue.
