To evaluate the complications and oncologic outcomes of orthotopic ileal neobladder reconstruction (ONB) following pelvic radiotherapy (RT) compared to patients with no prior pelvic RT.
To evaluate whether a financial incentive changed research patterns among residents over a 12-year period.
Metoidioplasty is a gender-affirming surgical option for individuals who desire masculine genitalia while preserving erogenous sensation and avoiding the morbidity of phalloplasty. Concurrent urethral lengthening offers patients the potential to stand to urinate.
To demonstrate our technique for glans sparing trans-urethral excision and circumferential buccal graft for severe strictures of the meatus and fossa navicularis.
GENDER DIFFERENCES IN AUTHORSHIP IN UROLOGY: A FIVE-YEAR REVIEW OF PUBLICATIONS IN FIVE HIGH-IMPACT JOURNALS
To describe the proportions of peer-reviewed manuscripts authored by women in five high-impact, widely available urology journals, and to compare these to the proportion of women in urology. About 9% of attending urologists and 25% of urology residents are women. We hypothesized that women comprised fewer than 25% of first authors and fewer than 10% of last/senior authors.
Association of Surgical Delay and Overall Survival in Patients with T2 Renal Masses: Implications for Critical Clinical Decision-Making during the COVID-19 Pandemic
To test for an association between surgical delay and overall survival (OS) for patients with T2 renal masses. Many health care systems are balancing resources to manage the current COVID-19 pandemic resulting in surgical delay in patients with large renal masses.
Update: the clinical role of vaginal lasers for the treatment of the genitourinary syndrome of menopause
To educate providers on the emergence of vaginal lasers for the treatment of the GSM and discuss the peer-reviewed literature regarding their use.
To report our single center experience in the management of untreated adult classical bladder exstrophy.
Urologic complications requiring intervention following high-dose pelvic radiation for cervical cancer
To identify the incidence of radiation-induced urologic complication requiring procedural intervention following high-dose radiotherapy for cervical carcinoma, and to identify predictors of complication occurrence.
There is a persistent male gender predominance in urology, especially with respect to female representation in leadership. We review the current status of women in urology leadership, discuss challenges women face in leadership positions, present the case for adopting inclusive practices that increase diversity and gender equity in urology leadership, and review the potential benefits of such an expansion. We discuss practical strategies to grow the role of women in urologic leadership, including increasing mentorship, modifying academic promotion criteria, and addressing implicit bias, while presenting a roadmap towards achieving equity and diversity at the highest ranks of urologic leadership.
Optimal Modeling: an Updated Method for Safely and Effectively Eliminating Curvature During Penile Prosthesis Implantation
To assess outcomes of a variant of traditional modeling (“optimal modeling,” OM) in patients with residual curvature following prosthesis implantation.
To examine the geographic and pharmacy-type variation in costs for generic benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) medications in order to improve drug price transparency and reduce health disparities. Medical therapy for BPH can be expensive, having significant implications for uninsured and underinsured patients.
: To report our initial experience with ureteral appendiceal interposition (UAI) in a series of adult patients undergoing ureteral reconstruction for ureteral stricture.
To describe the clinicopathologic features of patients with incidental prostatic amyloidosis
Determinants and Implications of Excised Parenchymal Mass on Robotic-Assisted Partial Nephrectomy Outcomes
To evaluate the association between excised parenchymal mass (EPM) and postoperative renal function (eGFR) following robotic-assisted partial nephrectomy (RAPN). EPM is the amount of healthy renal parenchyma excised during partial nephrectomy in order to achieve safe surgical margins.
Impact of Cardiovascular and Metabolic Risk Factors on Stricture Recurrence After Anterior One-stage Buccal Mucosal Graft Urethroplasty
To evaluate the impact of cardiovascular, metabolic and smoking related risk factors on recurrence in patients with buccal mucosal graft urethroplasty (BMGU) for anterior urethral strictures.
Transperineal versus transrectal targeted biopsy with use of electromagnetically-tracked MR/US fusion guidance platform for the detection of clinically significant prostate cancer
To compare transperineal (TP-TBx) and transrectal (TR-TBx) targeted prostate biopsy in a prospective non randomized single surgeon series of MR/US fusion-guided targeted biopsy performed using an electromagnetic tracking platform (NCT04026763).
HYPERBARIC OXYGEN AS SALVAGE THERAPY FOR NEONATES SUFFERING FROM CRITICAL ISCHEMIA OF THE GLANS PENIS AFTER CIRCUMCISION
Ischemic complications of glans penis following circumcision are rare, and if occurs can culminate in irreversible necrosis with severe long-term consequences.Here we present two challenging cases of neonates suffering from acute severe glans penis ischemia after circumcision that were treated by hyperbaric oxygen treatment (HBOT). In addition to case presentations, the literature related to complications of circumcision and the physiological effects of HBOT are being reviewed. Based on the review and the case presented, we conclude that HBOT can be used as salvage treatment for circumcision induced glans ischemia as early as possible before full necrosis develops.
To perform a global survey assessing the role of and the attitudes towards media platforms amongst training Urologists
In this case series (n=7) on prostatic utricles (PU), retention of urine was seen in 5/7, UTI(4/7), recurrent epidydymo-orchitis(3/7) and scrotal sinus(1/7). VCUG established diagnosis in 3/7 patients while CT/MRI in 4/7 patients. Four patients were primarily managed by cystoscopic widening of mouth of PU. Three with large PU underwent initial open (2) or laparoscopic (1) excision but later warranted cystoscopic widening for residual PU. Excision (open/laparoscopic) has risk of damage to adjacent structures (nerves/vas/seminal vesicles) or leaving behind a residual PU.
