Editorial Comment

Cystinuria represents an aggressive stone disease that is difficult to manage.1 This article indicates that a subsequent noncystine composition develops in 30% of patients, highlighting the importance of repeat analysis with recurrences. This is an interesting finding and brings up points of consideration for the management of cystinuria.

Editorial Comment

In this retrospective analysis the authors explored the correlation between pretreatment prostate MRI suspicion scores and post-prostatectomy histological and genotypic risk stratification. The outcomes suggest an association between high risk preoperative MRI (PIRADS 5) and an increased genotype and expression based risk profile as quantified by up-regulation of the molecular pathways associated with tumor progression and castrate resistance. The novelty of the findings is in part captured in figure 4, which demonstrates increased pathway activation and an association with an increasing PIRADS score.

A Rare Case of Triplicate Ureter

Urology (Gold Journal) In Press - Thu, 09/13/2018 - 00:00
Ureter triplication is an extremely rare congenital anomaly of the urinary system with approximately 100 cases reported in medical literature since it was first described in 1870. It is classified into 4 types, and commonly associated with ipsilateral or contralateral urological anomalies. In this report, we present a case of a pediatric Type III- triplicate ureter associated with ipsilateral vesicoureteral reflux and contralateral idiopathic renal atrophy that was discovered during kidney transplant work-up.
