Sustained glycemic control observed in diabetic men who improve hemoglobin A1c values to allow for elective penile prosthesis placement
We hypothesize that men with diabetes mellitus (DM) whose inflatable penile prosthesis (IPP) implantation is delayed for unacceptably high hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) will have durable improvements in their glycemic control after achieving acceptable HbA1c levels for surgery.
Omission of cortical renorrhaphy during robotic partial nephrectomy: a Vattikuti Collective Quality Initiative (VCQI) database analysis
: To analyze the outcomes of patients in whom cortical (outer) renorrhaphy (CR) was omitted during robotic partial nephrectomy (RPN).
To identify factors associated with patient willingness to consider surgical treatment for erectile dysfunction (ED) prior to urologic consultation.
IS MEATAL ANALGESIA NECESSARY FOR PAIN REDUCTION DURING CYSTOSCOPY IN FEMALES? A PROSPECTIVE RANDOMISED STUDY
To evaluate whether anesthesia of the meatal orifice reduces pain during cystoscopy in women, known to cause significant pain, discomfort and anxiety in women. Secondary end-point was to compare pain between rigid and flexible cystoscopy.
The impact of adjuvant Sirolimus therapy in the surgical management of scrotal slow-flow vascular malformations.
To describe the effects of oral sirolimus administered before and after surgical resection of slow-flow vascular malformations of the scrotum in pediatric patients.
: To examine the factors associated with iatrogenic ureteral injury litigation and outcomes.
RE: 3D Printing, Augmented Reality, and Virtual Reality for the Assessment and Management of Kidney and Prostate Cancer: A Systematic Review
I read with great interest the article by Wake et al in a recent issue of the journal.1 The authors do an excellent job comparing and contrasting methods of visualizing patient anatomy in 3D, while simultaneously expounding upon the various studies showing the efficacy of these methods in improving patient outcomes, assisting surgical planning, guiding surgeons intraoperatively, simulating patient anatomy, and educating the patient. In many cases, the 3D models provided value above and beyond traditional slice-based imaging such as CTs and MRIs.
A 16-year-old female was incidentally found to have an abnormal pelvic ultrasound while undergoing evaluation for mild scoliosis. A large, thick-walled, lobular, fluid-filled structure was found at midline in the pelvis that initially resembled bladder diverticula due to its anatomical position and sonographic appearance. Voiding cystourethrogram (VCUG) and computed tomography (CT) later revealed a large cystic mass originating from the right ovary. This report outlines a case of a mature cystic teratoma convincingly mimicking bladder anomaly on sonography.
To investigate the prevalence of burnout among Danish and American urologists.
Testicular masses found in pre-pubertal males are often benign in nature. This has led to an increase in the use of testis-sparing surgery. Testicular torsion is considered a urologic emergency that requires immediate surgical intervention. Based off literature review, it is rare for these unique entities to present synchronously in a single patient. This report demonstrates that in the pediatric population it is possible to safely treat a suspected benign testicular mass with testis sparing mass enucleation if it presents synchronously with testicular torsion in the contralateral testis.
Validating the Martini Staging System for Rectourethral Fistula: A Meta-Analysis of Postoperative Outcomes
To validate the Martini staging system for post-operative RUF utilizing data from previous studies to determine whether it can accurately predict post-operative success rate.
To quantify the representation of women urologists as invited speakers at the AUA Annual Meeting.
To report the outcome of buccal mucosa tube graft (BMTG) over time in correcting failed hypospadias.
Comparison of Perioperative and Pathologic Outcomes Between Single-Port and Standard Robot-Assisted Radical Prostatectomy: An Analysis of a High-Volume Center and the Pooled World Experience
To perform an early comparative study of outcomes between SP-RALRP and standard RALRP at our institution and pooled analysis of series to date.
Long-term Curvature Deformity Characterization in Men Previously Treated With Collagenase Clostridium Histolyticum for Peyronie's Disease, Subgrouped by Penile Plaque Calcification
: To examine the long-term (5-year) efficacy and safety of collagenase clostridium histolyticum (CCH) therapy in men with Peyronie's disease (PD) and varying degrees of plaque calcification.
Survival Outcomes in Neoadjuvant Chemotherapy for High Grade Upper Tract Urothelial Carcinoma: A Nationally Representative Analysis
To assess the impact of neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) on survival outcomes in a contemporary cohort of patients with in upper tract urothelial carcinoma (UTUC).
The impact of hospital volume on short-term and long-term outcomes for patients undergoing radical nephroureterectomy for upper tract urothelial carcinoma
To examine the effect of hospital volume on short and long-term outcomes for radical nephroureterectomy (RNUx). Upper tract urothelial carcinoma (UTUC) is a rare malignancy that few surgeons have experience with. The hospital volume-outcome relationship has been well established for other cancers but not RNUx.
Impact of Perioperative Multidisciplinary Rehabilitation Pathway on Early Outcomes after Robot-Assisted Radical Cystectomy: A Matched Analysis
To investigate the effect of incorporating physical rehabilitation, nutrition and psychosocial care as part of the “NEEW” (Nutrition, Exercise, patient Education and Wellness) on perioperative outcomes after Robot-Assisted Radical Cystectomy (RARC).
To project the size and demographics of the female urology workforce into 2060.
To determine the ability of testosterone and estrogen to reverse urethral hypovascularity secondary to hypogonadism, we analyzed the effects of testosterone and estrogen supplementation on castrated Sprague Dawley rats.
