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
Cloacal exstrophy is the most severe form of the exstrophy-epispadias complex (EEC), 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 EECs 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.
In-Vivo Comparison of “V-LocTM90 Wound Closure Device” with “VicrylTM” and “MonocrylTM” in Regard to Tissue Reaction in a Rabbit Bladder Model
To compare the barbed polyglyconate suture (BPS) with two commonly used conventional sutures, this prospective randomized trial was designed. The sutures applied in the urinary collecting system, in terms of long-term histopathological and macroscopic suture material features.
Characteristics of Female Genital Restoration Surgery for Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia Using a Large Scale Administrative Database
To analyze nationwide information on the timing of surgical procedures, cost of surgery, hospital length of stay following surgery and surgical complications of female genital restoration surgery (FGRS) in females with congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH).
Regardless of whether you are a man or woman, in your teens or senior years, we have found the best strategies to help you cope with urinary incontinence.
Urinary hesitation is when a person has trouble starting or maintaining a urine stream. Learn about the common causes in men and women.
To evaluate the feasibility of a novel ‘safety-valve’ device for preventing catheter related urethral trauma during urethral catheterisation (UC). To assess the opinions of clinicians on the performance of the safety-valve device.
A 36 year old male was transferred from a freestanding emergency department to a nearby tertiary referral center for evaluation of an acute scrotum. He initially experienced midline back and right-sided flank pain in the preceding 24 hours while performing housework, but presented to the outside facility with acute onset right-sided inguinal and scrotal pain that woke him from sleep. This was associated with right hemi-scrotum swelling, self-limited gross hematuria, and passage of a small blood clot per urethra.
To identify difficult to see ureteral orifices (UOs), urologists need a method to stain the urine. Phenazopyridine, a urinary analgesic which discolors the urine orange, can be administered orally pre-operatively. We evaluated the usefulness of phenazopyridine in identifying the UOs and optimal timing of administration.
Titanised Transobturator Sling Placement for Male Stress Urinary Incontinence Using an Inside-Out Single-Incision Technique: Minimum 12-Months Follow-Up Study
To evaluate prospectively midterm outcomes of a new titanium-coated fixed polypropylene sling for male stress urinary incontinence.
Intermittent fasting and curtailing water intake for extended periods of time was likely to be common in Paleolithic times. Nowadays, it occurs for religious and dietary reasons. This restriction in intake should cause a decrease in urine flow rate (UFR), while raising the concentrations of certain substances in the urine to the point of precipitation. In this study, we measured the risk of calcium phosphate (CaHPO4) precipitation following 18 hours of food and water deprivation.

Radiologic Relation of the Colon to the Trajectory of Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy Access in Prone Versus Flank Free Modified Supine Position: a Prospective Study of Intra and Inter-Individual Influencing Factors
To compare the distance between the colon and the trajectory of PCNL access both in prone and FFMS positions as measured on CT and to study the effect of age, gender, BMI, side and previous renal surgery as influencing factors.
Shared Decision-Making in Prostate Cancer Care: Encouraging every patient to be actively involved in decision-making, or ensuring patients’ preferred level of involvement?
The aims of this study were: (1) to describe preferred and experienced roles in treatment decision-making among patients with localized prostate cancer (PC); (2) to identify how often patients’ experienced roles matched their preferred roles; and (3) to determine whether active involvement in decision-making regardless of role preferences, or concordance between preferred and experienced role is the strongest predictor of more favourable patient-reported outcomes.
Men with urethral strictures are treated mostly based on stricture characteristics. Undoubtedly, other factors exist that impact the success of our management beyond stricture length, location, caliber, and etiology. It is our hope that this work inspires well-designed studies to answer the questions put forth in the thoughtful editorial comments.
