Refinement Surgical Technique, and Perioperative and Functional Outcomes in Patients with Robotic Intracorporeal Hautmann Orthotopic Neobladder
To illustrate our refinement technique for robotic intracorporeal orthotopic Hautmann neobladder with adherence to open surgical principles and evaluate perioperative and functional outcomes.
Gender Gap in Industry Relationships and Scholarly Impact Among Academic Urologists in the United States
To examine the distribution of industry payments to male and female academic urologists and the relationship between industry funding, academic rank and scholarly impact.
Association between Daily Water Intake and 24-hour Urine Volume Among Adolescents with Kidney Stones
To determine the association between daily water intake and 24-hour urine volume among adolescents with nephrolithiasis in order to estimate a “fluid prescription”, the additional water intake needed to increase urine volume to a target goal.
A 59-year-old man with a history of muscle-invasive bladder cancer status post cystectomy with neobladder creation presented to the Emergency Department with a 4 month history of lower abdominal pain, dysuria and intermittent hematuria. He was found to have 2 massive bladder stones on CT scan, measuring 12 × 10.5 × 14 cm and 6.5 × 7.5 × 10 cm. Stones were successfully removed via open neocystolithotomy. Stones were composed of a mixture of Calcium phosphate (80%) and Calcium carbonate (20%).
Robot Assisted Simultaneous Pyeloplasty and Ureteric Reimplantation for Unilateral Double Obstruction of the Ureter: Technical feasibility, Tips and Tricks
To highlight the feasibility and technical details of performing simultaneous ipsilateral pyeloplasty and ureteric re-implantation for simultaneous proximal and distal obstruction of the ureter.
To assess the accuracy of renal ultrasound (RUS) in detecting renal scarring (RS).
Perineal urethrostomy for complicated anterior urethral strictures: indications and patient's choice. An analysis at a single institution
To explore indications for a definitive perineal urethrostomy (PU). To objectify the proportion of patients not completing the final stage procedure in an intended multi-stage urethroplasty. To analyze the incentives for both of these scenarios.
To study and report on treatment outcomes after surgical intervention for post-radiation prostatic urethral stenosis.
Simultaneous versus sequential retroperitoneal, thoracic and cervical resection of post chemotherapy residual masses in patients with metastatic nonseminomatous germ cell tumors of the testis
To compare a simultaneous versus sequential approach to residual post chemotherapy mass resections in metastatic testis cancer.
Success of Prostate and Testicular Cancer Awareness Campaigns Compared to Breast Cancer Awareness Month According to Internet Search Volumes: A Google Trends Analysis
To compare the efficacy of men's and women's cancer awareness campaigns using internet relative search volume (RSV) as a surrogate for public interest.
To determine factors and barriers associated with scholarly activity among faculty members at urology residency programs in the United States.
An 86-year old lady was referred for a 3 cm bladder stone 28 years after Burch colposuspension. Cystoscopy showed a stone over a non-absorbable suture, eroding from the right anterolateral bladder wall. The patient underwent a transurethral holmium laser lithotripsy and thulium laser removal of the eroded bladder wall. A high index of suspicion of suture erosion should always be present in case of de-novo symptoms in women who underwent colposuspension, even in the long term period.
Ureteritis cystica is rare, benign entity that associates with chronic urothelial irritation such as recurrent urinary tract infection or nephrolithiasis. It is often diagnosed incidentally on routine imaging or ureteroscopy in asymptomatic individuals. In this case report, we present the retrograde pyelogram and ureteroscopy images of a rare case of extensive unilateral ureteritis cystica in a 78-year-old female presenting for elective stone surgery.
Evaluation of Short-Term Outcomes Following Overlapping Urologic Surgery at a Large Academic Medical Center
To explore the effect of overlapping surgery on the risk of adverse outcomes in urologic surgery.
To determine if preoperative catheter dependence or specimen weight is associated with failed trial without catheter (TWOC) following holmium laser enucleation of the prostate (HoLEP).
An electronic form for reporting results of targeted prostate biopsy: Urology Integrated Diagnostic Report (Uro-IDR)
To detail the development of an electronic report that graphically conveys all relevant information from targeted prostate biopsy.
To describe and assess the implementation and effectiveness of a RCA based program in Urology residency. The Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education states programs should encourage patient safety (PS) and provide formal PS education. However, data suggests most programs fall short. Root Cause Analysis (RCA) has been established as an effective method for event analysis and PS.
