To define age-specific normal Color Doppler Duplex Ultrasound parameters in a large institutional database of men without organic erectile dysfunction.
Pathological characteristics of prostate cancer occurring in younger men: a retrospective study of prostatectomy patients
To determine if differences exist in the pathological characteristics of prostate cancer occurring in younger men as compared to the disease when it occurs in older men.
To determine if targeted and modulated radiofrequency ablation (RFA) of the urinary bladder using our novel ablation device (Denerblate) reduces bladder nerve density, potentially leading to a novel strategy for the management of overactive bladder.
Superior Mesenteric Artery Syndrome – A Rare Complication Following Left Radical Nephrectomy and IVC Thrombectomy.
The patient is an 49-year-old male who was referred to our tertiary centre for management of a large left renal mass. He had been evaluated elsewhere for vague left side abdominal pain and contrast enhanced computed tomography (CT) of his abdomen had revealed a large left renal mass with level III inferior vena caval (IVC) thrombus and regional adenopathy(Figure 1A,B). He denied any history of recent acute weight loss and his body mass index was 26.4 Kg/m2.Review of the CT images showed that the left renal vein which had the tumour thrombus was retro-aortic in position .
A 47 years old male with history of longstanding lower back pain, presented to the Emergency department for increased lower back pain. Pain was described as a radicular pain, shooting to bilateral lower extremities, with concomitant bilateral lower extremities paresthesia. Under physical examination there was a mild tenderness to spine, straight leg raise test was positive on left lower extremity, and normal anal sphincter.
To evaluate feasibility of percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) for complex nephrolithiasis in patients 80 years of age and older compared to younger individuals.
To determine whether use of renal mass biopsy may be associated with a reduction in surgery for patients with small, localized renal cell carcinoma (cT1aN0M0), especially among older patients and patients with greater comorbidity burden.
To measure the incidence of persistent opioid use following ureteroscopy (URS). Over 100 Americans die every day from opioid overdose. Recent studies suggest that many opioid addictions surface after surgery.
To determine whether women overactive bladder symptoms would report more frequent unhealthy toileting behaviors.
Discrepancy between Expectations and Experiences after Prostate Cancer Treatment: A Dutch Multicenter Study
To evaluate possible discrepancies between patients’ expectations concerning sexual side effects related to prostate cancer (PCa) treatment, based on the obtained information prior to treatment. Moreover, to determine if demographic or clinical factors may have an effect on the accuracy of patients’ expectations concerning sexual side effects after treatment.
Persistent Incontinence following surgery for ureteric triplication with contralateral duplication – a management dilemma
Ureteral triplication is a rare congenital anomaly of urinary tract with wide spectrum of presentation. The presentation with incontinence has usually been taken as a sign of ureteral ectopia in these cases. However, ectopia cannot explain all cases with incontinence. We report a case of a 14-year-old girl with ureteral triplication with contralateral duplication and vesicoureteral reflux of the upper moiety on the triplicate side and dysplastic upper moiety on duplicated side, who had persistent incontinence following a left ureteroureterostomy and right heminephrectomy.
A 31-year-old pregnant female who was at 16 weeks gestational age presented to the emergency room with severe right sided flank pain and low-grade fevers. She denied hematuria or dysuria. She had a mother with endometrial cancer and no family history of renal malignancy or congenital anomalies. Her physical exam was notable for a large and tender right upper quadrant mass and a gravid uterus. The rest of her exam was unremarkable as were her basic chemistries and blood counts. Urinalysis was positive for nitrites and leukocyte esterase, and urine culture grew >100,000 colonies of E.
To determine whether implicit gender bias exists in the urology residency application process, we compared linguistic differences in letters of recommendation submitted for male and female applicants.
Age differences in patient-reported psychological and physical distress symptoms in bladder cancer patients – A Cross Sectional Study
To assess age-based differences in psychological and physical symptoms of bladder cancer (BC) patients at different disease stages.
To analyze the outcomes of upper pole access during percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL), an option pole often avoided due to the concern for pleural injury.
The LACE+ Index as a Predictor of 30 Day Patient Outcomes in a Urologic Surgery Population: A Coarsened Exact Match Study
To examine the potential of LACE+ scores, in patients undergoing urologic surgery, to predict short-term undesirable outcomes.
A new technique in fresh prostate cancer tissue biobanking based on MRI-transrectal ultrasound fusion biopsy
To present and validate a new technique for biobanking fresh-frozen prostate cancer tissue based on MRI-transrectal ultrasound fusion biopsy.
To assess the symptoms associated with long-term Double-J ureteral stenting including the influence of biofilms on ureteral stents.
Systematic biopsy does not contribute to disease upgrading in patients undergoing targeted biopsy for PI-RADS 5 lesions identified on magnetic resonance imaging in the course of active surveillance for prostate cancer
To compare the utility of the systematic 12-core prostate biopsy (SB) combined with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)-targeted lesion biopsy (MRI-TB) versus MRI-TB alone in the diagnosis of high PI-RADS lesions.
Are we cutting ourselves short? Laser lithotripsy performance based on differences in fiber-tip preparation
To better understand the impact of laser fiber-tip configuration on lithotripsy performance, we undertook an in vitro study comparing three fiber-tip configurations: 1) new (single-use), 2) cleaved (re-usable) and 3) coated (cut with scissors).
