Removing Race from eGFR calculations: Implications for Urologic Care

Urology (Gold Journal) In Press - Mon, 03/29/2021 - 00:00
Equations estimating the glomerular filtration rate are important clinical tools in detecting and managing kidney disease. Urologists extensively use these equations in clinical decision making. For example, the estimated glomerular function rate is used when considering the type of urinary diversion following cystectomy, selecting systemic chemotherapy in managing urologic cancers, and deciding the type of cross-sectional imaging in diagnosing or staging urologic conditions. However, these equations, while widely accepted, are imprecise and adjust for race which is a social, not a biologic construct.

Neoadjuvant therapy for cisplatin ineligible muscle invasive bladder cancer patients: A review of available evidence

Urology (Gold Journal) In Press - Thu, 03/25/2021 - 00:00
Neoadjuvant chemotherapy followed by radical cystectomy is the standard of care for muscle invasive non-metastatic bladder cancer patients. While cisplatin based neoadjuvant chemotherapy has been recommended, systemic therapy in a neoadjuvant setting for cisplatin ineligible patients still needs to be addressed. Various strategies like split dosing cisplatin chemotherapy, carboplatin based chemotherapy and taxanes based chemotherapy have been tried as neoadjuvant therapy for cisplatin ineligible patients.

Nedosiran dramatically reduces serum oxalate in dialysis-dependent primary hyperoxaluria 1: a compassionate use case report

Urology (Gold Journal) In Press - Wed, 03/24/2021 - 00:00
Primary hyperoxaluria 1 (PH1) is a devastating condition involving recurrent urolithiasis, early end-stage renal disease (ESRD) and multisystemic deposition of calcium oxalate crystals. Treatment options for PH1 are limited, inevitably requiring transplantation, usually combined kidney and liver transplant. Here we report successful compassionate use of Nedosiran, an RNA interference (RNAi) targeting lactate dehydrogenase (LDH), in an index patient. Monthly Nedosiran injections led to dramatically decreased plasma oxalate levels, decreased frequency of weekly hemodialysis sessions from six to three, and deferral of combined kidney and liver transplant.

Testicular Myofibroma in Children: A Case Report and Review of the Literature

Urology (Gold Journal) In Press - Mon, 03/22/2021 - 00:00
Testicular tumors are rare in the prepubertal population and often are germ cell tumors. Myofibroma is a rare spindle cell neoplasm composed of myofibroblasts, which are intermediate cells between fibroblasts and smooth muscle cells. Only two prepubertal testicular myofibromas have been previously reported. While cryptorchidism is a risk factor for testicular germ cell tumors, the exact etiology of testicular myofibroma is unknown. We report a case of testicular myofibroma in a 6-year-old male with a history of undescended testes, as well as a review of the literature.
