Letter to the Editor

Urology (Gold Journal) In Press - Tue, 01/11/2022 - 00:00
It was with great interest that I read “Ureteral Injuries Secondary to Blunt Abdominal Trauma: A 15-Year Review of Presentation, Management, and Outcomes at a Level 1 Trauma Center”. In this review, the authors explore their single institution experience with blunt ureteral injuries. Outside of the National Trauma Data Bank (NTDB) series1, this work represents the largest series of this very rare phenomenon. This study reinforces several important points from the American Urological Association (AUA) urotrauma guidelines2: delayed-phase computed tomography (CT) is the best tool for early detection of ureteral injuries, and complete ureteral injuries should be repaired as early as possible.

A novel transvesicoscopic ureteral reimplantation technique to treat an infantile ectopic ureter in a single system

Urology (Gold Journal) In Press - Mon, 01/10/2022 - 00:00
An ectopic ureter is a significant urinary tract malformation often treated during early childhood and is surgically managed based on its condition. Generally, only extravesical ureteral reimplantation is available as a treatment option for an ectopic ureter with well-preserved renal function. This report describes a case of a 28-months-old girl with an ectopic ureter in a single system who experienced repeated febrile urinary tract infections, successfully treated using a transvesicoscopic ureteral reimplantation as a minimally invasive treatment.

Impact of COVID-19 on male fertility

Urology (Gold Journal) In Press - Fri, 01/07/2022 - 00:00
COVID-19, the clinical condition caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus, has been associated with massive cytokine storm and damage to multiple organ systems. Although evidence for the detection of SARS-CoV-2 virus in the testis remains scarce, testicular damage and dysregulation of gonadotropins associated with inflammation has been reported. Additionally, as a result of the rapidly evolving pandemic, frequently updated medical interventions and public policies leading to delays of care can play a role in fertility.

An analysis of the evidence underpinning the American Urologic Association clinical practice guidelines

Urology (Gold Journal) In Press - Sat, 01/01/2022 - 00:00
Objective: To evaluate the reporting quality of systematic reviews (SRs) underpinning the American Urologic Association (AUA) clinical practice guidelines (CPGs).Methods: We searched the AUA for CPGs from 2015-2021. We extracted all SRs from the reference sections and two independent investigators evaluated eligible SR/meta-analysis using the PRISMA (Preferred Reporting Instrument for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses) and AMSTAR-2 (A Measurement Tool to Assess Systematic Reviews 2) instruments.

Consumption of a healthy plant-based diet is associated with a decreased risk of erectile dysfunction: a cross-sectional study of the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey

Urology (Gold Journal) In Press - Fri, 12/31/2021 - 00:00
Purpose: To investigate the association between the plant-based content of diet and erectile dysfunction in men from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES).Methods: We collected de-identified information from the NHANES database on demographics, comorbidities, diet, and erectile dysfunction (ED). Exclusion criteria were age <20 or >70 years, incomplete plant-based diet index information, history of prostate cancer, or other missing information. Using the food frequency questionnaire, an overall plant-based diet index (PDI) and healthful plant-based diet index (hPDI) were developed.

Objective: To determine the odds of accessing telemedicine either by phone or by video during the COVID-19 pandemic.Methods: We performed a retrospective study of patients who were seen at a single academic institution for a urologic condition between March 15, 2020 and September 30, 2020. The primary outcome was to determine characteristics associated with participating in a telemedicine appointment (video or telephone) using logistic regression multivariable analysis. We used a backward model selection and variables that were least significant were removed.

Complete pathologic response to pembrolizumab and axitinib in a patient with sarcomatoid RCC and ocrelizumab-treated multiple sclerosis

Urology (Gold Journal) In Press - Wed, 12/29/2021 - 00:00
Non-clear cell renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is a heterogeneous disease. We report a case of sarcomatoid non-clear cell RCC in a patient with underlying multiple sclerosis (MS) on immunosuppression with a complete pathologic response to pembrolizumab and axitinib. Comprehensive genomic profiling revealed pathogenic mutations in SETD2 and TP53 with high RNA expression levels of immune checkpoint proteins. Our case illustrates the importance of treatment selection based on presence of sarcomatoid features, underlying autoimmune disease, and genomic profiling.
