To perform a comprehensive histopathological review of sporadic resected solitary cT1 renal masses comparing those with and without radiographic involvement of the hilum.
Clinical Utility of Prostate and Tumor Volume-Related Parameters Following Radical Prostatectomy for Localized Prostate Cancer
To evaluate whether prediction of biochemical recurrence (BCR) after radical prostatectomy (RP) is enhanced by any of six parameters: prostate volume, total tumor volume (TV), high grade TV, ratio of high grade TV to TV, ratio of TV to prostate volume and/or ratio of high grade TV to prostate volume.
To understand the relationship between frailty, age and recurrent urinary tract infections (rUTIs).
To characterize clinical and pathologic outcomes of cisplatin-refractory or relapsed germ cell tumor (GCT) patients who underwent retroperitoneal lymph node dissection (RPLND) following salvage chemotherapy with either conventional or high dose regimens.
A 52-Week Study of Dose-Adjusted Subcutaneous Testosterone Enanthate in Oil Self-Administered via Disposable Auto-injector
This open-label, single-arm, dose-blinded, 52-week, registration-phase study evaluated the efficacy and safety of subcutaneous testosterone enanthate auto-injector (SCTE-AI) administered weekly to men with hypogonadism.
Comparative Genomic Profiling of Refractory/Metastatic Penile and non-Penile Cutaneous Squamous Cell Carcinoma: Implications for Selection of Systemic Therapy
Metastatic penile squamous cell carcinoma (mPSCC) is an aggressive malignancy with limited treatment options. We compared the potential therapy impacting genomic alterations (GA) between mPSCC and non-penile cutaneous metastatic squamous cell carcinoma (mCSCC).
Percent parenchymal mass-preserved (PPMP) is the primary determinant of functional outcomes after partial nephrectomy (PN). Accurate methods for predicting PPMP based on preoperative imaging could facilitate patient counseling.
To quantify the relationship between the number of Twitter mentions and the number of academic citations a urology publication receives.
A prospective accuracy study of Prostate Imaging Reporting and Data System version 2 on multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging in detecting clinically significant prostate cancer with whole-mount pathology
To assess the accuracy of Prostate Imaging Reporting and Data System version 2 (PI-RADS v2) in detecting clinically significant prostate cancer (csPCa) on multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging (mpMRI) using whole-mount sections after radical prostatectomy (RP) as reference standard.
Low Intensity Pulsed Ultrasound Influences the Myogenic Differentiation of Muscle Satellite Cells in a Stress Urinary Incontinence Rat Model
To investigate the therapeutic effect of Low intensity pulsed ultrasound (LIPUS) in a stress urinary incontinence (SUI) rat model and its influence on myogenic satellite cells.
3T Multiparametric MRI: Comparison of Performance With and Without Endorectal Coil for Prostate Cancer Detection, PI-RADSv2 Category and Staging with Whole Mount Histopathology Correlation in 429 Patients
To investigate performance of 3TmpMRI with and without endorectal coil (ERC) for detection of prostate cancer (PCa) with whole mount histopathology (WMHP) reference.
Role of Residual Fragments on the Risk of Repeat Surgery After Flexible Ureteroscopy and Laser Lithotripsy: Single Center Study
To analyze the impact of residual stone fragments seen on abdominal X-ray (KUB) after ureteroscopy and laser lithotripsy (URS) on the risk of repeat surgical intervention.
Most renal masses in the United States are incidentally detected via abdominal imaging. This has led to an increase in the incidence of small renal masses (≤ 4 cm). Active surveillance is a feasible, oncologically safe option in slow growing and indolent tumors in other organs and has recently become more widely studied in small renal masses. Active surveillance for small renal masses is a feasible and safe option for select patients, particularly those who are more elderly or harbor significant comorbidities, especially cardiovascular disease.
To evaluate predictors of renal deterioration (RD) in patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) at a tertiary referral center.
Post-Operative Opiate Use in Urologic Patients: a Quality Improvement Study Aimed at Improving Opiate Disposal Practices
We aimed to determine trends in post-operative opiate management among urologic patients, to identify associations with opiate keeping, and to foster appropriate opiate disposal after surgery via introduction of an educational handout.
To introduce a new protocol for patients with primary nocturnal enuresis to increase efficacy of treatment and decrease relapse rate.
To compare the efficacy of communication via the standard Da Vinci Si speaker system with a wireless, hands-free audio system in a prospective blinded study.
A systematic review and meta-analysis was performed to determine the relationship between testosterone therapy and risk of recurrence in testosterone-deficient survivors of curatively treated high-risk prostate cancer. Primary outcome was the risk of biochemical recurrence (BCR) in 109 high-risk patients in 13 included studies (1997-2017). Biochemical and symptomatic effects of therapy were also reviewed. The BCR rate was 0.00 (0.00-0.05), lower than the expected rate for high-risk prostate cancer survivors, suggesting that testosterone therapy may not increase their BCR risk.
To compare the cost, efficacy, and safety of 3-arm versus 4-arm technique in robotic partial nephrectomy (RPN). Surgeons may either elect to utilize three versus four robotic instruments depending on preference. The purpose of this study is to compare the outcomes between the two techniques.
