To report a step-by-step technique for robot-assisted transvesical simple prostatectomy (RASP) focusing on surgical hints to facilitate the procedure.
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.
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.
Rates and Risk Factors for Future Stress Urinary Incontinence Surgery After Pelvic Organ Prolapse Repair in a Large Population Based Cohort in California
To determine the rate and risk factors for future stress incontinence (SUI) surgery in a large population based cohort of previously continent women following pelvic organ prolapse (POP) repair without concomitant SUI treatment.
Comparison between Thulium laser VapoEnucleation and GreenLight laser photoselective vaporization of the prostate in real-life setting: propensity score analysis
To compare in daily practice efficacy and safety of standard 180-Watt GreenLight laser photo-selective vaporization (PVP) and Thulium laser Vaporesection of the prostate (ThuVEP).
To study trends in Bacillus Calmette-Guerin (BCG) utilization for non-muscle invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC) before and during national BCG shortages.
The impact of chronic pelvic ischemia on LUTS and urinary levels of neuro-inflammatory, inflammatory and oxidative stress markers in elderly men: a case-control study
To investigate LUTS and urinary levels of neuro-inflammatory, inflammatory and oxidative stress markers in elderly men with chronic pelvic ischemia (CPI) caused by significant aorto-iliac disease.
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.
