A privilege walk in healthcare

Urology (Gold Journal) In Press - Sat, 02/20/2021 - 00:00
The crisp autumn wind broke the silence as we waited in a perfectly homogenous line. The instructor, hiding in our shadows, started her interrogation. “If you had more than ten books at home while growing up, step forward.” I moved forward like many around me. “If you have been able to freely express your religion, step forward…If you or your family never had to move due to financial inabilities, step forward…If you feel comfortable with people knowing your sexual orientation, step forward...” I looked around at my peers—piercing into their identity, beliefs, pasts.

A systematic review on the use of qualitative and quantitative contrast-enhanced ultrasound in diagnosing testicular abnormalities

Urology (Gold Journal) In Press - Sat, 02/20/2021 - 00:00
Greyscale and colour doppler ultrasound (CDUS) are the standard when investigating testicular lesions. However, they cannot provide information on the microvasculature. As such, differentiating benign from malignant tumours is challenging. Contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) uses ultrasound contrast agents (UCA) which are exclusively intravascular to image the microvasculature. This review assessed CEUS outcomes in investigating intra-testicular lesions and concluded that qualitative CEUS provides the most advantage by confirming vascularity, thus differentiating non-neoplastic from neoplastic lesions with added confidence, allowing for appropriate management.

Letter to the editor Re: Wilson et al. Outpatient Extraperitoneal Single-Port Robotic Radical Prostatectomy. Urology 2020; 144: 142-146.

Urology (Gold Journal) In Press - Mon, 02/15/2021 - 00:00
We congratulate Kaouk and colleagues1 for presenting their encouraging data on outpatient robotic radical prostatectomy using the single port (SP) robot. Majority (∼90%) of patients had NCCN intermediate or high risk prostate cancer, and underwent concomitant nerve sparing (90%), with about ∼50% having extraprostatic disease and a quarter having positive margins on final pathology. Nearly 90% of patients were able to be discharged the same day, and opiates were increasingly less likely prescribed.
