Abdominal sacrocolpopexy (SC) with polypropylene mesh is a reliable and effective approach to treating pelvic organ prolapse. Risks of mesh complications range from 0-5%1, including mesh erosion at 2.7%2.
Non-continent urinary diversion (ileal conduit) as salvage therapy in patients with refractory lower urinary tract dysfunctions due to multiple sclerosis: results of a national cohort from the French Association of Urology (AFU) Neurourology Committee...
To describe the outcomes of ileal conduit as a salvage therapy for refractory lower urinary tract dysfunctions (LUTDs) due to multiple sclerosis (MS) in a national neurourology referral center network.
Hypogonadism associated with higher rate of penile prosthesis infection: An Analysis of United States claims data
To understand the relationship between hypogonadism and penile prosthesis infection risk.
Two Specialists, Two Recommendations: Discordance between Urologists’ & Radiation Oncologists’ Prostate Cancer Treatment Recommendations
To examine the treatment recommendation patterns among urologists and radiation oncologists, the level of concordance or discordance between physician recommendations, and the association between physician recommendations and the treatment that patients received.
Ureteral fibroepithelial polyps (UFP) are benign neoplasms of mesodermal origin. In this report, we describe the rare presentation and robotic surgical management of UFP in an adult female. A 25-year-old female with recurrent bilateral UFP s/p multiple ureteroscopic ablations and right partial ureterectomy with ureto-ureteral anastomosis presented with left flank pain. Four-phase CT with delayed images demonstrated a filling defect in the left ureter. Ureteroscopy confirmed left UFP. The number, size, and multifocality precluded endoscopic management.
Racial and Ethnic Differences in Medical Student Timing and Perceived Quality of Exposure to Urology
To contextualize the low representation of Under-Represented in Medicine (URiM) in urology, we examine differences in timing and perceived quality of urology clinical and research exposures for medical students across race/ethnicity.
To describe our modified technique of performing video endoscopic inguinal lymphadenectomy (VEIL) with the proposed benefits of a shallow learning curve and better ergonomics.
To delineate the role of the urinary metabolome in the genesis of urinary stone disease (USD).
36-Month Prospective Study of Transvaginal Bovine Graft versus Native Tissue Repair for the Treatment of Pelvic Organ Prolapse
To compare the safety and effectiveness of dermal bovine transvaginal graft, Xenform, to native tissue in the surgical treatment of anterior and/or apical pelvic organ prolapse. This study was designed in conjunction with FDA requirements.
Clinical and urodynamic findings before and after surgical repair of pelvic organ prolapse in women with lower urinary tract symptoms. A prospective observational study
To investigate the association between urodynamic findings and lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) before and after surgical treatment of POP.
The Effect of Sperm DNA Fragmentation on Male Fertility and Strategies for Improvement: A Narrative Review
The inability to conceive due to male infertility is a complex issue with a wide variety of etiologies. Sperm DNA damage can be both a barrier to natural pregnancy and successful assisted reproductive technology (ART). The aim of this narrative review was to describe and highlight the effects of sperm DNA fragmentation and the most recent data on various treatment strategies to decrease sperm DNA damage. Finally, we proposed a management algorithm for couples undergoing ART with increased sperm DNA fragmentation.
We're the same age, this girl and I. At some point between intern year and fellowship I graduated from girl to woman (occasionally “doctor,” more often “nurse,”) while she remains solidly a girl, forever infantilized by her first few moments on this earth in which her tender brain was deprived of one essential element.
Association of increased age with decreased response to intravesical instillation of Bacille Calmette-Guérin in patients with high-risk non-muscle invasive bladder cancer: Retrospective multi-institute results from the Japanese Urological Oncology...
: To compare the therapeutic effect of Bacille Calmette-Guérin (BCG) intravesical instillation in older and younger patients with high-risk non-muscle-invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC). The comparison was performed with propensity score matching (PSM) without terminating the death of the older patients using relatively large-scale retrospective data from multiple institutes in Japan.
To determine the predictive value of voiding efficiency on acute urinary retention after discharge from BPH surgery.
To determine the morbidity, mortality, and costs associated with having concurrent venous thromboembolism (VTE) at the time of surgical resection of a renal mass.
Modified Retroperitoneoscope Retroperitoneal Lymph Node Dissection for a Non-seminomatous Testicular Tumour- a Video Vignette
Retroperitoneal lymph node dissection is the main treatment strategy for non-seminomatous testicular tumour1, which could be performed by transperitoneal laparoscopy or retroperitoneal laparoscopy. Compared with transperitoneal laparoscopy, the retroperitoneal approach has an advantage of minimally invasion2, while it has not been widely used. The main reason may be that the retroperitoneal approach is more complex and lack of standard steps. In this video, we describe an modified technique which could help to better understand and carry out the operation.
Urethral Stricture/Stenosis as a Complication of High Intensity Focused Ultrasound of the Prostate (HIFU): What is the Overall Patient Experience?
To analyze the location and management of urethral stricture/stenosis in patients treated with HIFU of the prostate as well as to describe patient reported satisfaction in these men.
Elevated IsoPSA Selects for Clinically Significant Prostate Cancer Without a Preference for Any Particular Adverse Histopathologic or Radiographic Feature.
To explore if elevated IsoPSA selects for particular adverse radiographic or histopathologic features among men destined to undergo radical prostatectomy (RP) because of clinically significant prostate cancer identified at biopsy.
Expectant Management of Blunt Grade III Renal Injuries: Early Discharge Outcomes from a Level 1 Trauma Center
: To determine whether patients with American Association for the Surgery of Trauma grade III blunt renal injuries discharged within 48 hours of admission have increased rates of readmission for renal-related complications compared to patients observed for over 48 hours.
Race and Ethnicity Have a Significant Effect on the Disclosure of Erectile Function: An Analysis of NHANES Response Patterns
: To determine if race/ethnicity impacts disclosure of erectile function.
