Development of a Surgical Safety Training Program and Checklist for Conversion during Robotic Partial Nephrectomies
To evaluate the impact of standardized training and institutional checklists on improving teamwork during complications requiring open conversion (OC) from robotic-assisted partial nephrectomy (RAPN).
To evaluate the differences in the composition and quantities of the urine peptides in regular cannabis users and non-users by LC-MS/MS analysis.
On a yearly basis, urology residency program directors review hundreds of applications and interview dozens of applicants with the goal of selecting those applicants who will develop into excellent residents and urologists. This study identifies applicant features that predicted excellent residency performance at Mayo Clinic, including no negative interview comments, graduating from a lower ranked medical school, and obtaining honors in all core clerkships. Needless to say, each urology residency program may judge residency performance differently.
To review and explain the development of multiparametric MRI and its use in prostate cancer diagnosis while educating on the implication of certain radiological findings.
To provide population-based data on 10-year prostate cancer-specific mortality (PCSM), overall mortality (OM), treatment and prognostic factors in patients with non-metastatic prostate cancer (PCa).
To evaluate the inflammatory response following transvaginal implantation of polypropylene mesh.A comprehensive literature search was performed in the following databases from inception – April 2017: Ovid MEDLINE, Ovid EMBASE, and The Cochrane Library (Wiley). Studies retrieved were screened for eligibility against predefined inclusion/exclusion criteria. Twenty-three articles were included in this review.Following the implantation of polypropylene mesh, there are immediate and local inflammatory responses.
ObjectiveTo validate the Advanced Scope Trainer (AST; Mediskills, Northampton, UK). The AST is a currently unvalidated simulator, developed for flexible ureterorenoscopy (fURS) training. This study aims to assess the face, content, construct and concurrent validity to assess the level of transferability of skills to the OR.Materials and MethodsThis prospective, observational and comparative study recruited novices (n=19) and trainees (n=34) with participants performing a diagnostic fURS, followed by removal of a lower pole stone, on the AST.
Long-Term Follow Up of a Matched Cohort Study Evaluating the Role of Adjuvant Radiotherapy for Organ-Confined Prostate Cancer with a Positive Surgical Margin
To evaluate if ART is associated with improved long-term oncologic outcomes for pT2N0R1 prostate cancer (PCa).
To determine the characteristics and predictors of perioperative complications after male anterior urethroplasty.
To assess the efficacy and safety of neurostimulation for non-neurogenic OAB in children we conducted a meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials (RCTs).
Usefulness of Ultrasonography and Cortical Transit Time to Differentiate Non –Obstructive From Obstructive Dilatation in the Management of Prenatally Detected Pelvic Ureteric Junction Like Obstruction.
ObjectiveTo differentiate a Non-obstructive dilatation from an Obstructive dilatation in prenatally detected presumed pelvi ureteric junction obstruction so that intervention can be planned before irreversible damage can occur to the renal unit.Materials and MethodsFrom January 2012 to December 2016, all patients with prenatally detected or asymptomatic incidentally detected presumed pelvi ureteric junction obstruction were evaluated by ultrasonography and renogram. The anteroposterior diameter of the renal pelvis was measured in supine and prone position.

Finding Nemo – Nerve-Sparing Midurethral Obstruction: a Pathophysiologically Accurate Model of Rodent Partial Bladder Outlet Obstruction
We would like to thank the authors of the letter to the editor for their interest in our article and for their thorough comments.
The Effciency and Safety of TVT ABBREVO Versus TVT EXACT in the Normal Weight and Overweight Patients Affected by Stress Urinary Incontinence
To compare the compare efficacy between the two differernt slings in normal weight and overweight women.
Use of the Ileum for Ureteral Stricture and Obstruction in Bilateral, Unilateral, and Single-Kidney Cases
ObjectivesTo investigate the functional outcomes of ileal ureter replacement for complex ureteral loss, including bilateral and single ureter stricture, as a result of various etiologies.MethodsIn 2013–2016, 31 patients underwent ileal ureter replacement surgery. The data for their assessments included etiology, combined surgical procedures, ureteral replacement type, postoperative complications, and changes in renal function.ResultsThe 31 study patients had a median age of 56.0 (range 18 to 65) years old and were followed for a median 23.6 (range 6.5 to 43.2) months.
Predicting Grade and Stage at Cystoscopy in Newly Presenting Bladder Cancers – a Prospective Double-Blind Clinical Study
To assess Urologists' ability to predict the grade and stage of new bladder cancers from the cystoscopic features alone.
ObjectiveTo evaluate the outcomes of endoscopic treatment of vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) performed on infants, and to discuss the possible role of this approach in selected cases.Material and MethodsA retrospective analysis was conducted on the patients that underwent endoscopic injection of a bulking substance for VUR in our institution, and a comparison made with patients treated as infants and those treated later in life.ResultsA total 463 ureteric units were included (296 children), of which 47 of them were patients less than one year of age (infants, INF group), with the remaining 416 being included in a second group (children, CHL).
Glansectomy as Primary Management of Penile Squamous Cell Carcinoma: an International Study Collaboration
To analyze the recurrence and survival outcomes of glansectomy in patients with penile squamous cell carcinoma.
Vasectomy Practice Patterns among Family Medicine Physicians and Compliance with the AUA 2012 Vasectomy Guidelines
To survey urologists and family medicine physicians within a single institution to determine current vasectomy practice patterns and determine compliance with 2012 American Urological Society (AUA) vasectomy guidelines.
The Effects of Neoadjuvant Axitinib on Anthropometric Parameters n Patients with Locally Advanced Non-Metastatic Renal Cell Carcinoma
Karam and colleagues have reported on the effects of axitinib on anthropometric parameters and found an interesting association between sarcopenia and response to axitinib therapy in non-metastatic renal cell carcinoma (RCC). This study provides unique data from a prospective clinical trial of non-metastatic RCC patients followed with serial imaging during pre-surgical systemic treatment.
