Re: Deebel et al.: Prostate Cancer in Transgender Women: Incidence, Etiopathogenesis, and Management Challenges (Urology 2017, http://dx.doi.org/doi:10.1016/j.urology.2017.08.032)

23 hours 1 min ago
Deebel et al highlight substantial gaps in our understanding of prostate cancer in transgender women. However, clarification and contextualization of terminology and concepts in the article is needed to better serve its purpose of improving care among transgender patients.

Editorial Comment

23 hours 1 min ago
This is an important study for its timeliness in addressing a significant need towards the effective use of medical data in various applications including epidemiological investigations and for developing biomarker-associated outcome models. As the authors illustrate, currently available data sources such as the SEER-Medicare data and many electronic medical record systems do not have longitudinal, searchable pathology data as pathology reports are included as text files. As digitized patient data becomes more commonplace, abstraction tools which apply advances in artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning will no doubt enable the automated analysis of pathology records in the future.

Renal Trauma in Pediatrics: a Current Review.

Fri, 10/13/2017 - 00:00
Children are at increased risk of renal injuries from blunt trauma. Four phase CT with intravenous contrast (non contrast, arterial, nephrographic, and pyelographic phases) is the choice for initial imaging, although ultrasonography might be used in the children with minimal symptoms. The American Association for the Surgery of Trauma developed the known system for renal injury grading, which was modified in 2011. The management of pediatric renal injuries has largely shifted towards conservative means.

Variation in Radiologic and Urologic Computed Tomography Interpretation of Urinary Tract Stone Burden: Results From ReSKU

Fri, 10/13/2017 - 00:00
To compare the measured stone burden recorded between urologists and radiologists, and examine how these differences could potentially impact stone management. As current urologic stone surgery guideline recommendations are based on stone size, accurate stone measurements are crucial to direct appropriate treatment. This study investigated the discrepant interpretation that often exists between urologic surgeons and radiologists' estimation of patient urinary stone burden.

Hospital Charges and Length of Stay Following Radical Cystectomy in the ERAS Era

Fri, 10/13/2017 - 00:00
To report our center's experience with Enhanced Recovery after Surgery (ERAS) pathway for radical cystectomy (RC), specifically evaluating complications, LOS, 30- and 90-day readmissions, and hospital charges. Pathways of this type have been shown to decrease length of stay (LOS) and post-operative ileus. However, concerns persist that ERAS is costly and increases readmissions. To date, limited studies have evaluated these concerns.

Management of Post Radical Prostatectomy Urinary Incontinence: a Review

Wed, 10/11/2017 - 00:00
Post-prostatectomy urinary incontinence (PPUI) has significant impact on the quality of life of patients who undergo radical prostatectomy. Stress and overflow incontinence may result from the procedure, with sphincteric incompetence and detrusor hypocontractility implicating their development, respectively. In many cases, treatment begins with conservative approaches, including pelvic floor muscle training/biofeedback. Pharmacotherapy can be used to treat overactive bladder. For stress incontinence, transurethral bulking agents are utilized in select patients, however AUS and male slings are the most efficacious options with good success rates.
