The Effect of Calcium and Vitamin B6 Supplementation on Oxalate Excretion in a Rodent Gastric Bypass Model of Enteric Hyperoxaluria
To test the effect of calcium and vitamin B6 therapies on urinary oxalate excretion in a rodent model of enteric hyperoxaluria (EH) after Roux-en Y gastric bypass (RYGB) surgery.
To evaluate the efficacy of urethral bulking agents for stress urinary incontinence in the setting of prior failed sling.
Type 2 papillary renal cell carcinoma (PRCC) is a malignant tumor originated from renal tubular epithelial cells. Here we present a rare case of extra-renal type 2 PRCC which located at the right lateral side of the retroperitoneal inferior vena cava. No suspicious lesions were detected in the bilateral kidneys. The diagnosis was confirmed by histopathological examination after complete excision of the tumor. No recurrence was observed five months of follow-up after surgery.
Clinical results of transarterial embolization to control postoperative vascular complications after partial nephrectomy
To evaluate the safety and clinical efficacy of transarterial embolization for vascular complications after partial nephrectomy.
Robot-assisted laparoscopic reoperative repair for failed pyeloplasty in children: an updated series
Among children with recurrent obstruction after pyeloplasty, reoperative pyeloplasty is commonly utilized. We previously reported on reoperative robot-assisted laparoscopic repair for failed pyeloplasty in 16 children and concluded that short term and intermediate outcomes were comparable to open reoperative repair. This updated series reports on longer-term outcomes from an extended series.
Tumor complexity remains the primary modality by which urologists determine surgical approach and treatment strategy. R.E.N.A.L. and PADUA scores are the most popularly used nephrometry systems. Notwithstanding the common items contributing to the scores, some differences exist between PADUA and R.E.N.A.L. systems, translating into a different final score when assessing the tumor complexity of a renal mass. This represents an issue during quantitative syntheses of literature data and in the setting of retrospective multicentric analyses.
Effect of Vitamin D Therapy on Sexual Function in Women with Sexual Dysfunction and Vitamin D Deficiency: a Randomized, Double-blind, Placebo-controlled Clinical Trial
To investigate the effect of vitamin D therapy on sexual function in women with low vitamin D levels and sexual dysfunction.
Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is a chronic inflammatory condition affecting the axilla, genitals, perineum, and perianal regions. The pathophysiology of HS is complex and requires a multidisciplinary approach to treatment involving medical and surgical management when indicated. We describe our multidisciplinary protocol for treatment, which includes: rheumatology monitored immunotherapy, medical management, wide surgical resection, wound care and reconstruction. The multidisciplinary care team includes: rheumatology, wound care, and reconstructive urologic surgery.
Leaders in Urologic Education and their Relationship to Industry: An Analysis of Sunshine Act Open Payments from 2014-2016
To examine trends in the financial relationship between biomedical companies and leaders in urologic education during the first three full calendar years since implementation of the Sunshine Act.
To assess stone free rates following URS for renal calculi at our institution using low dose renal only CT (LDCT).
Pelvic Floor Distress Inventory Scores Improve after Prolapse Surgery Regardless of Surgical Approach but not after Observation Alone
To evaluate the effect of different surgical procedures on Pelvic Floor Distress Index (PFDI) scores in women with pelvic organ prolapse (POP).
Anticholinergic drugs can help treat a variety of conditions, including chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, bladder conditions, gastrointestinal disorders, and symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. In this article, learn about the different types of anticholinergic drugs and their possible side effects.
Renal replacement lipomatosis is a rare disease characterised by renal parenchymal atrophy and proliferation of inflammatory and fatty cells within the renal sinus, hilum, and perirenal region. The exact pathogenesis is unknown, however more than 75% of cases are associated with renal stones. Here, we provide images from a case with 10 years of follow-up, outlining the radiographic progression of the disease through time. Although only histopathology can confirm the diagnosis, high clinical suspicion in combination with the radiographic findings can differentiate the disease from other fat-containing entities.
Hemangioma of the genitor-urinary tract commonly involves the kidney and the bladder. Urethral hemangioma is rarely encountered with only case reports available in literature. Larger lesions involving almost the entire penile urethra in length and width, and requiring open excision and reconstruction, are even rarer. We report a case of 23 years male presenting with recurrent, intermittent urethral bleed with normal urination for 3 years. Evaluation revealed a urethral growth which was managed with excision and reconstruction using buccal mucosa.
Long Term Surveillance of Renal Cell Carcinoma Recurrence Following Ablation using 2D and 3D Contrast-Enhanced Ultrasound
To evaluate efficacy of using 2D and 3D contrast enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) for surveillance of RCC recurrence in patients post-ablation and identify imaging hallmarks of recurrence.
Blocking an enzyme that limits the activity of the 'anti-aging molecule' NAD+ could be a way to protect the liver and kidneys from damage, study suggests.
Unscheduled Clinical Encounters in the Post-operative Period After Adult and Pediatric Urologic Surgery
To qualify and quantify unscheduled clinical encounters (UCEs) in post-operative urologic patients and to identify patient and procedural risk factors for UCEs.
Assessing the Influence of Irrigation Flows on Clearance of Calculi Fragments during Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy: a Numerical and Physical Model Study
To analyze the intrarenal hydrodynamic processes and clearance of stone fragments during percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) using numerical and physical models.
To determine whether vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) that occurs during either the filling or voiding phase on voiding cystourethrogram (VCUG) has prognostic significance on successful endoscopic treatment.
Robot-Assisted Placement of Pelvic Tissue Expander for Radiation after Prostatectomy and Cystectomy for Treatment of Prostate Cancer Biochemical Recurrence
To present a robot-assisted surgical technique for overcoming challenges of a patient with prior pelvic surgeries and bowel in the radiation target.
