Salvage Enbloc Thulium Fiber Laser Enucleation of Prostate for Giant Prostatomegaly after Prostatic Urethral Lift
Prostatic urethral lift (PUL) is an accepted treatment modality for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and is currently recommended for surgical management of prostates < 80 grams in size.1 However, in reality some patients with prostate > 80 gram also receive PUL.2 A substantial number of these patients may requirement re-treatment for recurrent or persistent lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) after PUL.3-5 Patients with larger prostates who fail PUL might be better managed with endoscopic enucleation which is a size-independent modality for treatment of BPH.
COMPARISON OF MICROSCOPIC HEMATURIA GUIDELINES AS APPLIED IN 1,018 PATIENTS WITH MICROSCOPIC HEMATURIA
To compare the 2012 American Urological Association (AUA) and 2020 AUA/Society of Urodynamics, Female Pelvic Medicine & Urogenital Reconstruction (SUFU) microscopic hematuria (MH) guidelines as applied in 1,018 patients with MH, to confirm of risk groups and to investigate the natural history of patients with MH.
Post-surgical complications after bladder outlet reducing surgery: an analysis of the FDA Manufacturer and User Facility Device Experience (MAUDE) database
To examine voluntary reports in the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) Manufacturer and User Facility Device Experience (MAUDE) database, categorize complications and assign device-related causality with transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP), prostatic urethral lift (PUL), and transurethral water vapor therapy (TWVT).
Knowledge and Attitudes Regarding Surgical Castration in Men Receiving Androgen Deprivation Therapy for Metastatic Prostate Cancer and Their Relationship to Health-Related Quality of Life.
To determine the attitudes and education regarding surgical castration in men receiving androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) for metastatic prostate cancer (mCaP).
Using Preoperative Pelvic Floor Assessment to Predict Early Return of Continence after Robotic Radical Prostatectomy
To evaluate whether pre-operative pelvic floor physical therapy (PFPT) parameters may predict early return of urinary continence after RP. While long-term urinary continence is eventually achieved in most patients who undergo radical prostatectomy (RP), predicting when patients will become continent is challenging. Prior studies aiming to predict return of post-operative continence have not evaluated patient-specific pelvic floor strength parameters.
Desmoplastic small round cell tumor (DSRCT) is a rare malignancy believed to originate from the serous membranes and it is highly aggressive with 5-year overall survival of 18.4%. Only a small number of DSRCT cases have been documented. Here, we report findings of DSRCT of the kidney on 18F-FDG PET/CT in a 30-year-old woman who presented with repetitive pulmonary infection and spontaneous pneumothorax.
ATR and BRCA2 simultaneous mutation in a ccRCC with sarcomatoid differentiation and extensive metastases: a case report
The genomic landscape and driver-gene mutations differ significantly among diverse histological subtypes of clear cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC) due to the intratumoral heterogeneity. Frequent mutations in canonical DNA damage response (DDR) genes, such as BRCA1/2 or ATR serine/threonine kinase (ATR) haven't been reported even in large-scale genomic profiling of ccRCC researches. Herein, we reported a rare ccRCC harboring ATR and BRCA2 simultaneous mutation with complicated morphologies and extensive metastases.
Development and Testing of an Anatomic in vitro Kidney Model for Measuring Intrapelvic Pressure During Ureteroscopy
To create an in vitro anatomic bench model that can mimic in vivo intrapelvic pressure (IPP) during ureteroscopy (URS) and compare it against existing in vivo and ex vivo data.
To compare perioperative outcomes between open conversion and planned open surgical approach and to investigate trends.
Voiding and storage domain-specific symptom score outcomes after prostate artery embolization for lower urinary tract symptoms and urinary retention
To characterize voiding and storage symptom domain-specific outcomes after prostate artery embolization (PAE) to treat lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) or urinary retention caused by benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).
Preoperative Modified Spermatic Cord Block PREDICTS SUCCESS in Candidates for Microscopic Spermatic cord denervation
To examine the utility of a modified spermatic cord block (MSCB) that targets known contributors to refractory chronic scrotal content pain (CSCP) at predicting postoperative pain relief following a microscopic spermatic cord denervation (MSCD).
Turner syndrome (TS) is a difference in sex development (DSD) affecting 25-50 per 100,000 females with many cardiac, endocrine, neurocognitive, genitourinary, and reproductive implications.1 There is a spectrum of TS depending on degree of chromosomal mosaicism, with particular interest given to those with Y chromosome material present (∼5.5% of TS), which may increase the risk of gonadal malignancy.2 In particular, the expression of testis-specific protein-Y gene is implicated in development of gonadoblastoma (Gb), a premalignant condition found in some patients with DSD.
Re: Multi-Institutional Outcomes and Associations after Excision and Primary Anastomosis for Radiotherapy-Associated Bulbomembranous Urethral Stenoses Following Prostate Cancer Treatment
Refractory radiation induced urethral stenosis (RIUS) is a reconstructive challenge. Fortunately, meaningful data on this subject is now beginning to appear in the literature. Our recent series describes a 137 patient multi-institutional analysis of excision and primary anastomosis (EPA) for radiation induced urethral stenosis with an 86.9% success rate at a mean follow-up 32.3 months.

Postoperative infection of male posterior urethral stenosis with pelvic fracture: A retrospective study from a Chinese tertiary referral center
To investigate the risk factors for postoperative infection, including systemic inflammatory response syndrome, sepsis and surgical site infection, after posterior urethral anastomosis for the treatment of male posterior urethral stenosis with pelvic fractures.
Patient preferences and treatment decisions for prostate cancer: Results from a statewide urological quality improvement collaborative

Comparison of long-term effect and complications between holmium laser enucleation and transurethral resection of prostate: Nations-wide health insurance study
To investigate and compare the postoperative efficacy and complications of the transurethral resection of prostate (TURP) and holmium laser enucleation (HoLEP) using the nationwide insurance database of Korea.
