Congenital bladder underdevelopment has detrimental genitourinary effects. We present a male infant with declining renal function, recurrent urinary tract infections, and epididymo-orchitis, in the setting of bilateral high grade hydronephrosis and vesicoureteral reflux. Cystoscopic evaluation revealed the presumed “bladder” to be a massively dilated prostatic urethra. The small dysplastic “true bladder” was found at the anterior surface of the prostatic urethra with massively dilated ureteral orifices.
To evaluate effect of patient and physician demographics on Press Ganey® (PG) survey ratings for urologists.
Long-term follow-up of patients with cerebral palsy undergoing catheterizable channel creation without concurrent bladder augmentation
To characterize long-term outcomes for adults with cerebral palsy who have undergone catheterizable channel creation without concurrent bladder augmentation.
To further elucidate the relationship between low socioeconomic status (SES) and larger, more complex stones requiring staged surgical interventions. Specifically, we aimed to determine if underinsurance (Medicaid, Medicare, and self-pay insurance types) is associated with multiple surgeries within one year.
Incidental diagnosis of renal pelvic tumor in patients who underwent percutaneous nephrolithotomy: a report of 6 cases and review of the literature
To report the clinical characteristics of patients who were incidentally diagnosed renal pelvic tumor during or after percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PNL).
URETERO-COLONIC FISTULA SECONDARY TO A FOREIGN BODY INGESTION: LAPAROSCOPYC APPROACH IN A PEDIATRIC PATIENT
The most common causes of uretero-colonic fistulas are penetrating injury, iatrogenic trauma, and ureteric lithiasis.1,2,3 Spontaneous uretero-colonic fistula is a rare complication of foreign body ingestion. Most pass through the gastrointestinal tract without problems and less than 1% produces perforation.4Fish bones are among the most frequently reported foreign bodies to have caused a perforation and children are considered a risk group for foreign body ingestion.4,5The aim of this video was to report an unprecedented case of a uretero-colonic fistula secondary to foreign body ingestion in a pediatric patient treated using a laparoscopic approach.
MRI vs Transrectal Ultrasound to Estimate Prostate Volume and PSAD: Impact on Prostate Cancer Detection
To compare multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging (mpMRI) and transrectal ultrasound (TRUS) to estimate prostate volume and prostate specific antigen density (PSAD) as well as subsequent impact on prostate cancer (PCa) detection.
The Outcomes of Pelvic Fracture Urethral Injuries Stratified by Urethral Injury Severity: A Prospective Multi-institutional Genitourinary Trauma Study (MiGUTS)
To determine patient outcomes across a range of pelvic fracture urethral injury (PFUI) severity. PFUI is a devastating consequence of a pelvic fracture. No study has stratified PFUI outcomes based on severity of the urethral distraction injury.
The Impact of Visiting Rotations on the Urology Residency Match: Insights and Perspectives from the 2021-2022 Applicants
To survey 2022 Urology Residency Match applicants on their away rotation experiences to better understand the impact of pandemic changes, including the one in-person away rotation limit, on interviews and match outcomes.
Corrigendum to “Suprahepatic Cava Thrombus due to Wilms Tumor: Technique Without Cardiopulmonary Bypass” Urology (2022) e25-e28
The authors regret referencing Table 1 as number 5, the correct reference is number 7: Gorin M, González J, Garcia M, Ciancio G. Transplantation techniques for the resection of renal cell carcinoma with tumor thrombus: A technical description and review.

Transvaginal Photobiomodulation Improves Pain in Women with Pelvic Muscle Tenderness and Interstitial Cystitis/Bladder Pain Syndrome: A Preliminary Observational Study.
Interstitial Cystitis/ Bladder Pain Syndrome (IC/BPS) is characterized by pelvic/bladder pain, associated with pelvic muscle tenderness, urgency, frequency, and dysuria. Prior studies show that transvaginal photobiomodulation (TV-PBM) reduces pain in women with chronic pelvic pain (CPP). Our objective was to obtain preliminary data on treatment effect and adherence, in women with IC/BPS who selected TV-PBM therapy for management of pelvic pain.
Intra-cavernosal injection of botulinum toxin in the treatment of erectile dysfunction: a systematic review and meta-analysis
To evaluate the role of botulinum toxin in treating erectile dysfunction as a novel treatment strategy avoiding morbid and irreversible surgeries.
To document the incidence, risk factors, and prevalence of sacral insufficiency fractures (SIF) among patients who have undergone total pubectomy for osteomyelitis.
Prostate Cancer presenting as a solitary sacral osteolytic metastasis mimicking chordoma on 18F-FDG PET/CT
A 62-year-old-man presented with 6-month history of sacrococcygeal pain and difficulty urinating. Digital rectal examination revealed unsymmetrical enlargement of the prostate, which felt nodular on the anterior rectal wall. Pelvic MRI showed a well-defined heterogeneous mass extending from the sacrum and accompanied by bone destruction (Fig. 1A, B). The lesions were predominantly isointense on T1-weighted images (A, arrowhead) and a mixed high signal on T2-weighted images and DWI (B, C, arrowhead).
To assess the perceptions and outcomes of the A preference signaling (PS) pilot implemented by the Society of Academic Urology (SAU) in the 2021-2022 Urology Match (UM) cycle.
Real-Time Measurement of Patient Reported Outcomes and Opioid Use Following Urologic Procedures using Automated Text Messaging
To evaluate opioid consumption and patient-reported pain intensity following urologic procedures.
Comparison of technical success and adverse events of plaque incision and grafting methods in patients with Peyronie's disease: Tunica vaginalis versus buccal mucosa
To compare the clinical outcomes of Peyronie's disease (PD) patients who were treated by plaque incision and grafting either with tunica vaginalis (TV) or buccal mucosa (BM) grafts.
Total Autologous Fascia Lata Sacrocolpopexy for Treatment of Pelvic Organ Prolapse: Experience in Thirty-Four Patients
: To develop a technique for open/robotic sacrocolpopexy using autologous fascia lata autograft. We report our experience in our first thirty-four patients.
Failure patterns by PSMA PET for recurrent prostate cancer after prostatectomy and salvage radiation
To characterize patterns of failure using prostate-specific membrane antigen positron emission tomography (PSMA PET) after radical prostatectomy (RP) and salvage radiotherapy (SRT).
