To propose an algorithm for the management of bladder amyloidosis based on a systematic review of the literature, given that the bladder is the second most commonly affected organ of the urinary tract in the course of systemic or localized amyloidosis.
Long-term Follow Up of Ileal Ureteral Replacement for Complex Ureteral Strictures: Single Institution Study
To report our 16 year experience with ileal ureter interposition for complex ureteral stricture. Ureteral reconstruction continues to evolve to include less invasive techniques to successfully manage ureteral stricture. However, long, complex, obliterative and especially radiated ureteral strictures are not amenable to less invasive techniques and may require Ileal ureter interposition.
Real World Data of Penile Cancer Treatment at a High-Volume Center in South America: Insights and Survival Trends
To report survival trends and oncological outcomes of penile cancer surgically treated patients, at a high-volume center, treating more than 25 patients each year, in a high incidence country.
Abstract not applicable for narrative piece.
The Impact of Race, Ethnicity and Insurance Status on Surgery Rates for Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia
To determine whether patient race/ethnicity are associated with differences in likelihood of undergoing surgical treatment for LUTS/BPH.
Assessing the Impact of Hospital Dismissal Summary Readability on Patient Outcomes Following Prostatectomy
: To assess the impact of decreasing the reading level of hospital dismissal summary information on the number of unplanned patient contacts with providers following robot-assisted radical prostatectomy.
Impact of Plant-Based Diet on PSA Level: Data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey
: To determine the potential association between plant-based dietary content and PSA levels among men enrolled in the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES).
Disparities in prostate cancer survival according to neighborhood archetypes, a population-based study
To examine survival among men with prostate cancer according to neighborhood archetypes. As an advancement beyond measures of neighborhood socioeconomic status (nSES) or specific measures of the neighborhood environment, archetypes consider interactions among many social and built environment attributes.
Anesthetic Bladder Capacity is a Clinical Biomarker for Interstitial Cystitis/Bladder Pain Syndrome Subtypes
To further examine anesthetic bladder capacity as a biomarker for interstitial cystitis/bladder pain syndrome (IC/BPS) patient subtypes, we evaluated demographic and clinical characteristics in a large and heterogeneous female patient cohort.
Acute Lobar Nephronia (ALN) is a rare infective condition of the kidney currently described only in case reports and small case series. The diagnosis of ALN is made by characteristic clinico-radiological findings. Differentiation from acute pyelonephritis, renal abscess and renal tumor is crucial for proper management and to avoid unnecessary diagnostic interventions. Herein, we report a 58-year-old woman with a uncontrolled diabetes mellitus,who was diagnosed clinically as acute pyelonephritis and treated with standard duration of antibiotics but had recurrence of symptoms.
Clinical Presentation of Urologic Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome (UCPPS) Varies with Presenting Age – Implication on Patient Evaluation
To compare the clinical presentation of UCPPS from a large clinical practice grouped by their presenting age to improve the evaluation of this condition.
As general surgery and surgical subspecialties have recognized and worked toward intentional diversification of their workforce, urology has been slow to respond in kind.1 The 2019 AUA census reports only 2% of practicing urologists identify as Black, whereas 11.7% and 84.7% identify as Asian and White, respectively.2 Similarly, the 2019 Urologist in Training census reports only 3.1% of trainees identify as Black, 21.4% and 67.5% are considered Asian and White, respectively.2 With approximately 13% of the United States population identifying as Black or African American,3 the field of urology has a defined racial demographic endpoint to meet the goal of racial congruence between the country and the field.
African American Men have Increased Risk of Prostate Cancer Detection despite Similar Rates of Anterior Prostatic Lesions and PI-RADS Grade on Multiparametric Magnetic Resonance Imaging
To determine whether the frequency of anterior prostate lesions (APL) on multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging (mpMRI) prior to biopsy differed between African American (AA) and non-AA men and evaluate implications of race and tumor location for prostate cancer (PCa) detection.
Patient Reported Sexual Function Outcomes in Male Patients Following Open Radical Cystoprostatectomy and Urinary Diversion
To report sexual health outcomes in male patients undergoing open radical cystoprostatectomy using a validated questionnaire.
To investigate the association between paternal race and reproductive outcomes following in vitro fertilization (IVF).
Socioeconomic Disparities and Risk Factors in Patients Presenting with Ischemic Priapism: A Multi-Institutional Study
To evaluate contemporary clinical presentations of priapism, their association with socioeconomic characteristics, and the role of prescribing providers in priapism episodes in a large cohort of patients managed at three major academic health systems.
Defining the Variance: The Current State of Female and URM Concordance of Urology Resident Workforce to the General U.S. Population
To compare the current representation of women and underrepresented minorities in medicine (URM) of the urologic resident workforce to the general U.S. population.
To describe the patterns of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) among patients with kidney stones and analyze the alkali content of commonly used CAM therapies.
The Pull-through Anastomosis of Ureter to Enteric Conduit (PAUTEC): A Novel Technique for Urinary Diversion:
To describe and illustrate a novel technique of uretero-ileal anastomosis for use in urinary diversion – the Pull-through Anastomosis of Ureters to Enteric Conduit (PAUTEC). A second objective was to evaluate the surgical outcomes of the PAUTEC anastomosis.
Dr. Zinman was a graduate of Boston University and Tufts University School of Medicine. He completed his surgical training at the Boston VA and Urology Residency at the Massachusetts General Hospital, where he was inspired by both Drs. Wyland Leadbetter and W. Hardy Hendren to pursue a career in genitourinary reconstruction. He joined the Lahey Clinic in 1964 before embarking on fellowships in Reconstructive Urology with Mr. Richard Turner-Warwick at the Institute of Urology in London, England from 1967-68, and Renal Transplantation at Middlesex Hospital from 1973-74 with Mr.
