Re: Xu AJ, Shakir NA, Jun MS, Zhao LC. Robotic Assisted Repair of Post-Ileal Conduit Parastomal Hernia: Technique and Outcomes. Urology. 2021;S0090-4295(21)00819-0. doi:10.1016/j.urology.2021.08.030

Urology (Gold Journal) In Press - Mon, 12/27/2021 - 00:00
We read with great interest the manuscript by Xu and colleagues, who presented a case series (n=4) of robotic assisted laparoscopic parastomal hernia (PSH) repair. They described a novel method of repair, including use of the single port (SP) robotic system in 3 patients. Given our experience in this field in a high-volume tertiary referral center, including completing the PUBMIC (Prophylactic Use of Biologic Mesh in Ileal Conduit) trial, a randomized trial of using mesh to prevent parastomal hernia (NCT02439060), we want to highlight some points in this paper.

LOCALIZED AMYLOIDOSIS OF THE SEMINAL TRACT IS NOT ASSOCIATED WITH SUBSEQUENT DEVELOPMENT OF SYSTEMIC AMYLOIDOSIS

Urology (Gold Journal) In Press - Sun, 12/26/2021 - 00:00
To investigate if localized amyloidosis of the seminal tract (LAST) is associated with subsequent development of systemic amyloidosis. Prior reports recorded no systemic amyloidosis at the time of LAST diagnosis. However, no follow-up studies exist to confirm that LAST is not a risk factor for subsequent development of systemic amyloidosis.

Acute Epididymo-orchitis as a Rare Cause of Testicular Infarction

Urology (Gold Journal) In Press - Fri, 12/17/2021 - 00:00
A 59-year-old male presented to his primary care physician with dysuria and was empirically treated for a urinary tract infection with ciprofloxacin for two weeks. He subsequently developed left testicular pain and was seen in the emergency department (ED) where urine culture grew less than 10,000 colony forming units of gram negative rods. Testicular ultrasound (US) at that time was normal, and he was discharged home with double strength trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole from the ED. He re-presented to the ED 6 days later with continued left testicular pain and was found to be febrile to 100.4F with otherwise normal laboratory values.

Current status of ureteric stents on extraction strings and other non-cystoscopic removal methods in the paediatric setting: A systematic review on behalf of the European Association of Urology (EAU) Young Academic Urology (YAU) Urolithiasis Group

Urology (Gold Journal) In Press - Sun, 12/12/2021 - 00:00
Ureteric stents are an important tool in urology and have a wide range of indications. While they offer a number of advantages, limitations remain despite modern advancements. These include discomfort, migration and encrustation. Standard removal is via cystoscopy but in the paediatric setting this mandates general anaesthetic, which holds disadvantages. Alternative removal methods include use of extraction strings and magnetic retrieval devices, which can be performed in the outpatient setting.
