The anatomical structure of a fused renal pyramid and its clinical significance in the establishment of percutaneous renal access
To explore the clinical significance of the fused renal pyramid(FRP) in establishing percutaneous renal access, and the anatomical basis for avoiding vascular injury caused by puncturing through this renal pyramid with the aim of achieving accurate puncture in PCNL.
The feasibility and safety of reproductive organ preserving radical cystectomy for elderly female patients with muscle invasive bladder cancer: a retrospective propensity score-matched study
To evaluate the feasibility and safety of ROPRC compared to RC for elderly female patients with muscle invasive bladder cancer.
The ileal conduit (IC) is the most common form of urinary diversion, accounting for 33%-84% of all diversions performed in the United States.1,2 IC is an excellent reconstructive option for patients who require cystectomy for bladder cancer, other pelvic malignancies or benign conditions such as neurogenic bladder/spina bifida, refractory radiation cystitis, and bladder fistulae. While IC is the simplest form of urinary diversion to construct and manage long-term, early and late complications are not uncommon.
To assess the expression profile and functional mechanism of long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) insulin growth factor 2 antisense, IGF2AS in human prostate cancer (PCa).
Rate and Determinants of Completing Neoadjuvant Chemotherapy in Medicare Beneficiaries with Bladder Cancer: A SEER-Medicare Analysis
To determine the rate and determinants of neoadjuvant chemotherapy non-completion in patients with muscle-invasive bladder cancer.
Dermtofibrosarcoma protuberans is a rare cutaneous malignancy known to be locally aggressive. It is uncommonly seen in the pediatric population and can be difficult to distinguish from other benign skin lesions. We present a case of dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans of the penis in a 6-month-old child managed with surgical resection. This case highlights the challenges of diagnosis of genital lesions in children and the complexities of genitourinary reconstruction following surgical resection.
To establish the effectiveness and safety profile of Onaboulinum toxin A (BTX-A) in men with idiopathic detrusor overactivity and compare with the outcomes observed in women. Several randomized trials have demonstrated the effectiveness of intradetrusor BTX-A injections in improving symptoms and quality of life in patients with overactive bladder (OAB) symptoms. Most trials however contained relatively few men or excluded men altogether.
To create, distribute, and evaluate the efficacy of a portable, cost effective 3D-printed laparoscopic trainer for surgical skills development.
Program Director Perceptions of Usefulness of the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education Milestones System for Urology Resident Evaluation
To assess the application and perceived usefulness of the Accreditation Council for Graduation Medical Education (ACGME) Milestones system for resident evaluation among urology program directors (PDs).
The Association of the Mayo Adhesive Probability (MAP) score with total operative time in patients undergoing hand assisted laparoscopic donor nephrectomy
To assess whether donor kidney Mayo Adhesive probability (MAP) score is associated with (total operative time) ORT in patients undergoing hand-assisted laparoscopic donor nephrectomy (HALDN).
The Effect of Calcium and Vitamin B6 Supplementation on Oxalate Excretion in a Rodent Gastric Bypass Model of Enteric Hyperoxaluria
To test the effect of calcium and vitamin B6 therapies on urinary oxalate excretion in a rodent model of enteric hyperoxaluria (EH) after Roux-en Y gastric bypass (RYGB) surgery.
To evaluate the efficacy of urethral bulking agents for stress urinary incontinence in the setting of prior failed sling.
Type 2 papillary renal cell carcinoma (PRCC) is a malignant tumor originated from renal tubular epithelial cells. Here we present a rare case of extra-renal type 2 PRCC which located at the right lateral side of the retroperitoneal inferior vena cava. No suspicious lesions were detected in the bilateral kidneys. The diagnosis was confirmed by histopathological examination after complete excision of the tumor. No recurrence was observed five months of follow-up after surgery.
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).
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.
