RE: 3D Printing, Augmented Reality, and Virtual Reality for the Assessment and Management of Kidney and Prostate Cancer: A Systematic Review

Urology (Gold Journal) In Press - Tue, 09/08/2020 - 00:00
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.

Mature Ovarian Cystic Teratoma Mimicking a Bladder Diverticulum in a 16-year-old Female

Urology (Gold Journal) In Press - Tue, 09/08/2020 - 00:00
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.

Management of Testicular Torsion and a Contralateral Testicular Mass Presenting Synchronously

Urology (Gold Journal) In Press - Mon, 09/07/2020 - 00:00
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.
