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.
To perform immune-cell enumeration and PD-L1 expression in clear cell renal cell carcinoma (cc-RCC) with tumor thrombus (TT) to guide therapeutic decisions.
