Prostate Cancer with Peritoneal Carcinomatosis: A robotic-assisted radical prostatectomy-based Case Series
To aid in the diagnosis and treatment of patients with metastatic tumor seeding, an exceedingly phenomenon following minimally invasive urological surgery, additional case reports are needed.
Evaluation of the Educational Impact of the Urology Collaborative Online Video Didactics Lecture Series
To assess the impact of the Urology Collaborative Online Video Didactic (COViD) lecture series series on resident knowledge as a supplement to resident education during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Women in Academic Urology: A Qualitative Analysis of the Relationship Between Pregnancy, Parenting and Delayed Promotion
: To determine the role that the burden of childbearing, including pregnancy and maternity leave, play in academic promotion for women in urology, which has been shown to be delayed as compared to their male counterparts.
Differential VHL mutation patterns in bilateral clear cell RCC distinguishes between independent primary tumors and contralateral metastatic disease
: To evaluate whether bilateral, multifocal clear cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC) patients can be differentiated by VHL mutation analysis into cases that represent either multiple independently arising primary tumors, or a single primary tumor which has spread ipsilaterally as well as to the contralateral kidney. The nature of kidney cancer multifocality outside of known hereditary syndromes is as yet poorly understood.
Sacrospinous ligament fixation vs uterosacral ligaments suspension for pelvic organ prolapse: a systematic review and meta-analysis
: To compare the effectiveness and safety of sacrospinous ligament fixation (SSLF) and uterosacral ligaments suspension (ULS) for surgical correction of pelvic organ prolapse (POP).
Objective: To demonstrate the surgical approach to repair of a urethrovaginal fistula, emphasizing key principles for successful fistula repair. Urethrovaginal fistulas occur infrequently in the developed world and typically caused by trauma or iatrogenic injury during pelvic surgery.1,2,3
Case: A 62 yr old man with past medical history of hypertension and well-controlled HIV presented with 1 week of severe worsening penile pain and swelling. Relevant history included Trimix injection ∼6 weeks prior associated with pain, bruising and no erection. He denies other trauma to the area as well as any sexual activity for the intervening 4-5 weeks. Approximately 1 week prior to presentation he had a trauma to the chest and back when falling off a scooter. Since that apparently unrelated trauma, he notes single measured fever (101̊) at home and worsening penile swelling with a 12-24 hour history of rapid pain progression to 9 out of 10 pain.
The Challenges of Urological Research in COVID-19 Era: Lessons Learned for Immediate Response to the Pandemic
After being declared a worldwide pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO) in March 2020, the “Coronavirus Disease 2019” (COVID-19) has had a significant impact on healthcare services in entire medical fields, including urology1,2. Despite development and widespread vaccine availability, COVID-19 and its emerging variants are still an evolving situation with more than 800,000 new cases per day in the United States at the time of this writing3. As part of the safety protocols, elective surgeries and in-person visits were restricted to decrease the chance of virus transmission and complication, and adapted guidelines released to minimize the risks for both patients and healthcare professionals delivering urological service 4.
To describe our technique and early results for IPP deactivation via puncture and drainage in the office setting to avoid penile explanting interventions in high-risk surgical patients.
Urachal rhabdomyosarcoma is a rare entity with a remarkably poor prognosis. Here we report on a 2-year-old male who presented with abdominal pain, fatigue, and urinary frequency. Imaging and subsequent surgical pathology confirmed urachal primary embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma. Our patient underwent upfront surgical resection with adjuvant chemoradiation per Children's Oncology Group (COG) protocol D9803. He is doing well 15 months after diagnosis.
: To evaluate the association between ethnicity/insurance status and time to kidney stone surgery.
: To assess the effect of tobacco use on oral mucosal tissue harvested for urethroplasty.
The added value of virtual unenhanced images obtained from dual-energy CT Urography in the detection and measurement of urinary stone
To evaluate the detection and quantification of urinary stones using virtual unenhanced images (VUE) at different phases and slice thickness in contrast-enhanced dual-energy CT Urography (DECTU) in comparison with true unenhanced images (TUE).
WATER vs WATER II 3-Year Update: Comparing Aquablation Therapy for Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia in 30-80 cc and 80-150 cc Prostates
To compare the outcomes of Aquablation for small-to-moderate (30-80cc) prostates with the outcomes for large (80-150 cc) prostates at 3-yr follow up.
To investigate a novel transurethral hemostatic catheter device with an integrated chitosan endoluminal hemostatic dressing (CEHD). Development and implementation of this technology may help address bleeding following surgery such as transurethral resection of prostate (TURP). Bleeding remains the most common complication following TURP, leading to increased morbidity and hospitalization.
: To assess changes to the experiences and wellbeing of urology trainees in the United States(US) and European Union (EU) during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Varicocele repair improves static oxidation reduction potential as a measure of seminal oxidative stress levels in infertile men: A prospective clinical trial using the MiOXSYS system
To assess whether varicocele repair improves oxidative stress (OS) measured by the MiOXSYS system.
Office Based Pediatric Urologic Procedures: A safe and effective alternative to interventions under anesthesia
: To report on our experience performing office-based pediatric urologic procedures. We hypothesize that office-based interventions are safe and effective for children, avoiding unnecessary risk and cost associated with general anesthesia.
Relapses Rates and Patterns for Pathological T0 after Robot-Assisted Radical Cystectomy: Results from the International Robotic Cystectomy Consortium
To investigate the oncologic outcomes of pT0 after robot-assisted radical cystectomy (RARC).
