Analysis of Twitter Engagement in a Progressively More Competitive Urology Match: A Mixed Methods Study
To analyze Twitter engagement in response to the urology match during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Dextranomer/hyaluronic acid (Deflux) has been widely used in the treatment of vesicoureteral reflux in the pediatric population. It has demonstrated acceptable early efficacy with minimal morbidity. Early complications from Deflux have been reported to occur in approximately 1% of cases1. However, late complications from Deflux use, including calcification and delayed ureteral obstruction, are less well understood. We present the case of an asymptomatic 11 year old girl with severe ipsilateral hydroureteronephrosis, identified nearly 8 years after treatment.
Association of Patient and Imaging-Related Factors with False Negative MRI-Targeted Prostate Biopsies of Suspicious PI-RADS 4 and 5 Lesions
To investigate specific imaging and patient-related factors associated with a false negative (FN) MRI-targeted prostate fusion biopsies (TBx) of suspicious MRI lesions.
A 22 year-old 46XY patient raised female diagnosed with complete androgen insensitivity (CAIS) at adolescence, after workup for amenorrhea, presented for routine care. Intraabdominal gonads were retained at patient and family choice at diagnosis.
A 39-year-old male with no other dermatologic or urologic history presented to urology with penile lesions for 4 years. The lesions are intermittently itchy, not painful, and do not interfere with erection or sexual activity. They did not respond to a six-week course of imiquimod prescribed by his PCP or cryotherapy of selected lesions by dermatology. He is bothered by their appearance. His phallus is uncircumcised with easily retractable foreskin. Punch biopsy histology is shown in Figure 1:
There is a broad differential diagnosis for a pre-pubertal child presenting with a scrotal mass including both benign and malignant etiologies. Lipoblastomas are rare benign neoplasms originating from fat cells that occur most commonly on the trunk or extremities of young children. There have been less than 20 cases of scrotal lipoblastomas reported in the literature, with the majority occurring in children less than 3 years of age. Here we present a unique case of an 18-month male presenting with a paratesticular mass found to be a lipoblastoma on final pathology.
Clinical phenotyping and multimodal treatment of men with chronic prostatitis/ chronic pelvic pain syndrome from the Middle East and North Africa: determining treatment outcomes and predictors of clinical improvement.
to evaluate the effectiveness of UPOINT based multimodal treatment on patients with chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CP/CPPS), and determine factors that could be associated with clinical improvement.
Efficacy of pelvic floor exercise for post-prostatectomy incontinence: Systematic review and meta-analysis
To determine the effect of pelvic floor muscle exercise (PFME) for post-prostatectomy urinary incontinence (PPUI), which has a major impact on the quality of life of patients undergone radical prostatectomy (RP).
Holmium laser resection of large bladder tumors: technique description, feasibility, and histopathological quality analysis
Background: The HoLERBT (Holmium Laser En-bloc Resection of Bladder Tumors) has emerged as an alternative to classical TURBT (Transurethral Resection of Bladder Tumor). Recent randomized trial and meta-analysis corroborate with the benefits in pathological analysis, perioperative and long-term oncological outcomes1-3. However, the treatment of large tumors and the technique of extraction from the bladder is a problem to be overcome1, 4.
National trends and outcomes in the use of intravesical botulinum toxin and enterocystoplasty among patients with myelomeningocele
: To compare trends in the treatment of patients with myelomeningocele receiving intravesical Botulinum (IVB) toxin and enterocystoplasty.
To evaluate the influence of prune belly syndrome (PBS) on the development of penises in human fetuses.
Single-Port, Robot-Assisted Transanal Harvest of Rectal Mucosa Grafts for Substitution Urethroplasty
To describe a novel single-port, endorobotic technique for harvesting rectal mucosa grafts (RMGs) for urethral reconstruction.
Extrarenal, extracranial malignant rhabdoid tumors (MRT) are uncommon malignancies with poor prognosis that may be diagnostically challenging. Reports of soft tissue MRTs in children are rare. For this reason, there are no standard treatment protocols. Historically, an aggressive multimodal approach has been taken. Here, we present a case of metastatic superficial pelvic MRT in a 16-year-old girl who remains disease free after aggressive multimodal therapy.
Transperineal prostate biopsy is associated with lower tissue core pathogen burden relative to transrectal biopsy: mechanistic underpinnings for lower infection risk in the transperineal approach
To understand the mechanistic basis for reduced infectious complications in transperineal (TP) prostate biopsy, we sought to determine whether TP prostate biopsy is associated with a lower degree of pathogen introduction into the prostate relative to transrectal (TR) biopsy.
Concurrent multicystic dysplastic kidney, posterior urethral valves, and obstructive ureterocele in a male pediatric patient: a case report.
Congenital anomalies of the kidney and urinary tract (CAKUT) are diagnosed in approximately 3-6 per 1000 live births and represent a spectrum of urologic conditions impacting the kidneys, ureter, bladder, and urethra1. Although both are considered under the classification of CAKUT, there is no known unifying pathophysiologic mechanism for ureteroceles and PUV with only one case report noted in the literature. Herein we report the only documented case of a patient with CAKUT related to PUV, ureterocele, and multicystic dysplastic kidney (MCDK).
Wilms tumor is a frequent malignant neoplasia in pediatric population. Extension to the inferior vena cava is a complication that occurs in approximately 4-15% of cases. Surgical techniques derived from the field of adult transplant surgery allow the resection of the tumor with its thrombus extension. In the case of a 6-year-old male patient with a stage III Wilms tumor that originated from the left renal vein, thrombectomy and left radical nephroureterectomy were accomplished without extracorporeal circulation.
The comparison study of anatomic vapor-incision technique (AVIT) using the 180W-XPS Greenlight laser and photoselective vaporization of the prostate(PVP) for the treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia
: To prospective compared the preoperative parameters and post-operative functional outcomes between anatomic vapor-incision technique (AVIT) and the photoselective vaporization of prostate(PVP) with GreenLight 180W-XPS.
Early and midterm complications of the continent catheterizable Indiana Pouch urinary diversion: A 7 year experience
To describe the most recent 7 year experience with 137 Indiana pouch patients at a single institution and provide data on complications with this type of urinary diversion during the first postoperative year.
Muscle-derived stem cells combined with nerve growth factor transplantation in the treatment of stress urinary incontinence
To investigate the efficacy of muscle-derived stem cells (MDSCs) combined with nerve growth factor (NGF) in the treatment of stress urinary incontinence (SUI)
