To test multiple adiposity measures and prostate cancer (PC) risk in men undergoing prostate biopsy. We hypothesized that BMI, body fat and waist circumference would be highly correlated and all would be associated with aggressive PC, but not overall risk.
To describe and evaluate the use of urodynamic (UDS) studies for all indications in an academic specialty referral urology practice.
Hospital-Acquired Urinary Tract Infections in Neonatal Icu Patients: is Voiding Cystourethrogram Necessary?
To evaluate the radiographic findings of neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) patients diagnosed with hospital-acquired urinary tract infection (UTI).
A 78 year old female presented to the Urology clinic with a large, symptomatic left-sided abdominal cyst for many years believed to be renal in etiology and had been percutaneously drained three times prior with persistent regrowth. The patient underwent laparoscopic resection of this mass which proved to be a completely distinct retroperitoneal cystic structure and not renal in nature. Pathological analysis ultimately revealed a rare occurrence: a benign retroperitoneal Müllerian serous cystadenoma.
Predicting Complications Following Robot-Assisted Partial Nephrectomy with the ACS-NSQIP Universal Surgical Risk Calculator
We evaluated the predictive value of the American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program (ACS-NSQIP) surgical risk calculator in a tertiary referral cohort of patients undergoing robot-assisted partial nephrectomy (RAPN).
Devascularized Parenchymal Mass Associated with Partial Nephrectomy: Predictive Factors and Impact on Functional Recovery
Parenchymal mass loss is the predominant factor associated with functional outcomes after partial nephrectomy (PN), and is primarily due to excised parenchymal mass (EPM) and/or devascularized parenchymal mass (DPM). We evaluate the importance of EPM and DPM relative to functional recovery after PN.
Staged Tubularized Auto-Graft (STAG) Repair for Primary Proximal Hypospadias with ≥30° Ventral Curvature
We report outcomes in consecutive patients with primary proximal hypospadias and ventral curvature≥ 30° after degloving, all repaired by 2-stage tubularized autografts (STAG), a variation of the Nicolle-Bracka procedure.
Learn about why some people have an overactive bladder, causing the need for frequent or sudden urination. What can be done to prevent it?
Surgery is the most reliable method of treatment for incontinence - curing the condition in just over eight in ten cases; other types of treatment, meanwhile, do not deliver the same kind of...
The Impact of Health Literacy and Clinicodemographic Factors on Use of Discharge Services After Radical Cystectomy
There are few data regarding the relationship between health literacy and discharge disposition. We hypothesized that patient discharge needs after radical cystectomy (RC) are affected by health literacy.
