To describe the infrapubic approach to penile prosthesis insertion in transmen after phalloplasty.
Efficacy and Safety of Vibegron Add-on Therapy in Men with Persistent Storage Symptoms after Receiving Alpha 1-Blocker or Phosphodiesterase 5 Inhibitor: A Preliminary Study
To investigate the efficacy and safety of vibegron add-on therapy in men with persistent storage symptoms receiving α-1 blockers or PDE5 inhibitor for benign prostatic hyperplasia and then determine the independent factors affecting the efficacy of vibegron.
Parastomal and ventral hernias are common complications in patients with continent catheterizable channels or incontinent urinary diversions. Patients with neurogenic bladder are at particularly high risk due to weak abdominal wall musculature, and hernia repair often requires re-siting of their stoma. While parastomal hernia repair with urinary stoma re-siting has acceptable long-term success rates, it often necessitates a laparotomy which is associated with significant morbidity.
The impact of physician productivity models on access to subspecialty care: A white paper from the Society for the Study of Male Reproduction and the Society for Male Reproduction and Urology
Male infertility is a common disease. Male infertility is also a core competency of urology training and clinical practice. In this white paper from the Society for the Study of Male Reproduction and Society for Male Reproduction and Urology, we identify and define different physician productivity plans. We then describe the advantages and disadvantages of various physician productivity measurement systems for male infertility practices. We close with recommendations for measuring productivity in male infertility practices that we hope urologists and administrators can use when creating productivity plans for male infertility practices.
Efficacy and Safety of Ningmitai Capsule in Patients with Chronic Prostatitis/Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome: A Multicenter, Randomized, Double-blind, Placebo-controlled Trial
To validate the efficacy and safety of Ningmitai capsule (NMT) in the patients with chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CP/CPPS).
Continent cutaneous ileocecocystoplasty (CCIC) involves reconfiguring the ileocecal segment for use as a bladder augment and continent catheterizable channel. CCIC requires release of the hepatic flexure of the colon, which necessitates a longer midline laparotomy than would be required for a standard bladder augmentation. This is associated with high rates of ventral and parastomal hernias.
Which anatomic structures should be preserved during Aquablation contour planning to optimize ejaculatory function? A case-control study using ultrasound video recordings to identify surgical predictors of postoperative anejaculation
To identify key anatomic structures that should be preserved to further avoid postoperative anejaculation after Aquablation.
Post-operative and survival outcomes after cytoreductive surgery in the treatment of metastatic upper tract urothelial carcinoma
To analyze utilization and outcomes of cytoreductive surgery (CRS) after systemic chemotherapy in select patients with metastatic upper tract urothelial carcinoma (UTUC).
An exploratory analysis of tamsulosin for Overactive Bladder (OAB) in men with varying voiding symptom burden
To evaluate tamsulosin (α-blocker therapy) for male overactive bladder (OAB) and to examine if indicators of concomitant benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) are associated with OAB symptom improvement.
Implementing Continuous Quality Improvement in an Integrated Community Urology Practice: Lessons Learned
To determine the effectiveness of two different continuous quality improvement (CQI) interventions in an integrated community urology practice. We specifically assessed the impact of audited physician feedback on improving physicians’ adoption of active surveillance (AS) for low-risk prostate cancer (PCa) and adherence to a prostate biopsy time-out intervention.
Bringing Jewish ritual circumcision (Brit Milah) into the operating room: An analysis of surgical outcomes and satisfaction across families and Society of Pediatric Urology members
To assess caregiver satisfaction, procedural outcomes and practitioner opinion regarding a novel program designed for patients to undergo a deferred Jewish ritual circumcision (Brit Milah) in the operating room (OR), combined with other indicated surgical procedures.
To assess the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the rate of SDD after robotic surgery
Influence of Department Leadership on Scholarly Productivity and Research Funding in Academic Urology
To determine whether the academic achievement of department chairperson (DC) and research director (RD), when present, is associated with increased scholarly productivity and National Institutes of Health (NIH) funding of faculty members in academic urology departments.
Conservative Management of Lichen Sclerosus Male Urethral Strictures: A Multi-Institutional Experience
To assess the outcomes and safety of conservative management of lichen sclerosus urethral stricture disease (LS-USD).
Urologists’ Perceptions of Active Surveillance and Their Recommendations for Low-risk Prostate Cancer Patients
To assess practicing urologists’ attitudes and perceptions of active surveillance (AS) and other treatment options for low-risk prostate cancer (LRPC).
Evaluation of opioid prescribing patterns and drivers of variation following endoscopic procedures for benign prostatic hyperplasia across an integrated academic health system
To evaluate patient, provider, and facility factors associated with variation in opioid prescribing after endoscopic procedures for benign prostatic hyperplasia across a large academic health system to drive improvement efforts.
LONGITUDINAL HEALTH RELATED QUALITY OF LIFE AFTER OPEN RADICAL CYSTECTOMY: COMPARISON OF ILEAL CONDUIT, INDIANA POUCH, AND ORTHOTOPIC NEOBLADDER.
To characterize the health related quality of life reported by patients who received an ileal conduit, Indiana pouch, or neobladder urinary diversion after radical cystectomy.
The relationship between erectile dysfunction and testosterone level, disease activity and quality of life in ankylosing spondylitis
To study erectile function in male patients with Ankylosing Spondylitis (AS) trying to correlate it with sexual hormonal profile and disease activity.
A common characteristic of Peyronie's Disease (PD) is plaque calcification, which is associated with decreased response to treatments and higher rates of surgical intervention. Despite its prevalence in the PD population, the literature on plaque calcification is limited. While the diagnosis of PD is mostly clinical, imaging modalities such as ultrasound can be used to identify plaque calcification. The proper identification of plaque calcification is crucial for guiding management and setting therapeutic expectations for patients with PD.
To evaluate the perioperative decision-making process, post-operative decision regret and reflection on the peri-operative experience of patients undergoing radical cystectomy and urinary diversion through patient interviews.
