Surgical correction of true diphallia in a newborn male.

Urology (Gold Journal) In Press - Sat, 07/17/2021 - 00:00
Diphallia is an exceedingly rare anomaly characterized by partial or complete duplication of the phallus. Approximately 100 cases have been reported worldwide since its initial documentation, and incidence is estimated at 1 in 5 to 6 million live births. Therapeutic management is dependent on the extent of the anomaly, ranging from phallic excision to complex reconstructive procedures in cases of broader systemic involvement. We present the case of congenital true diphallia with associated penoscrotal transposition, bifid scrotum, partial urethral duplication, ventral chordee, large scrotal lipoma and sacral dimple.

COMPLICATIONS OF PERI-OPERATIVE URETERAL CATHETER PLACEMENT: EXPERIENCE AT A MAJOR CANCER CENTER

Urology (Gold Journal) In Press - Fri, 07/16/2021 - 00:00
Peri-operative cystoscopy with ureteral catheter placement is a common urologic procedure performed prior to pelvic and retroperitoneal surgery to aid in ureteral identification. However, few studies have been completed evaluating complications following this procedure. While evidence is limited, studies in the gynecologic and colorectal literature have shown complication rates from 2.4% to 98% following ureteral catheter placement.1, 2 Although complications are typically mild, a review of colorectal patients revealed a concerning anuria rate of 5% following surgery.

Neuraxial vs general anesthesia: 30-day mortality outcomes following transurethral resection of prostate

Urology (Gold Journal) In Press - Thu, 07/15/2021 - 00:00
To examine the occurrence of 30-day mortality, and other procedure related morbidities in cohorts of patient receiving neuraxial anesthesia (NAX) or general anesthesia (GA) in the setting of transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP). Historically, NAX has been recommended for patients undergoing TURP permitting monitoring of consciousness and early diagnosis of absorption-related hyponatremia. We aim to analyze a broader comparison of mortality and other associated morbidities regarding the form of anesthesia utilized.
