We describe a rare case of a large renal arteriovenous malformation in a patient with von Willebrand disease. Initial attempts at technically challenging embolization failed requiring a nephrectomy. Extra-intestinal vascular malformations are rare in von Willebrand disease. However, there is more recent evidence of von Willebrand factor's regulatory role in angiogenesis and vascular malformations.
To investigate the impact of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) information on clinical staging, risk stratification and treatment recommendations for prostate cancer (PCa) according to the European Association of Urology (EAU) guidelines.
To evaluate the timing and frequency of postoperative occurrences as described in the Rule of W mnemonic for modern urologic and general surgical cases.
National trends in the utilization of androgen deprivation therapy for very low risk prostate cancer
To analyze national trends using the National Cancer Database (NCDB) in use of ADT, outside of standard of care, in patients with very low risk prostate cancer.
Dorsal buccal mucosal graft urethroplasty for vesico-urethral anastomotic stricture post radical prostatectomy
To introduce a new technique using dorsal buccal mucosal graft (BMG) for the repair of refractory vesico-urethral anastomotic stricture/stenosis (VUAS) post-open radical prostatectomy (RP).
To describe contemporary management and outcomes of patients experiencing postoperative hemorrhage after minimally-invasive radical prostatectomy (MIRP).
The severity and distribution of non-urologic pain and urogenital pain in overactive bladder are intermediate between interstitial cystitis and controls
1) To compare the severity and distribution of non-urologic and urogenital pain between OAB, IC/BPS and controls, and 2) To examine the relationships between the severity of urogenital pain and severity of urinary symptoms among patients with OAB.
To evaluate the impact of a urologic fellowship on physician case-volume and immediate patient outcomes, and to assess predictors of undergoing a robotic-assisted partial nephrectomy by a fellowship-trained urologist.
To evaluate whether pre-operative computed tomography (CT) findings could predict the presence of an impacted stone. Preoperative identification of an impacted ureteral stone may influence patient preparation and operative decisions. Factors predicting ureteral stone impaction have not been clearly identified.
Endo-Satinsky clamp hybrid in situ perfusion in retroperitoneoscopic donor nephrectomy for right-sided kidney
To introduce our hybrid technique using an endo-Satinsky clamp and in situ cold perfusion for right-sided retroperitoneoscopic donor nephrectomy (RDN) and to investigate efficacy and safety compared with those standard right-sided RDN.
Outcomes for Intravesical Abobotulinumtoxin A (Dysport®) Treatment in the Active Management of Overactive Bladder Symptoms – A Prospective Study
To present the results our active management protocol for bothersome Overactive Bladder symptoms using abobotulinumtoxinA (Dysport ®) over a nine-year period.
To examine secondary overtriage for isolated renal trauma patients and to use secondary overtriage criteria to determine factors associated with unnecessary inter-hospital transfers in patients with isolated renal trauma.
To investigate the impact of urologist practice structure on health care spending for men with prostate cancer. We hypothesize that three elements of urologist practice structure may influence spending for prostate cancer care: urologist participation within a multispecialty group (MSG), practice size among single specialty urology groups and intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) ownership.
Three-year active surveillance outcomes in a contemporary community urology cohort in the United States
To determine the 3-year outcomes of men with prostate cancer managed with active surveillance (AS) in a cohort of geographically diverse community-based urology practices. AS is the management of choice for a majority of men with lower risk prostate cancer.1,2,3 Little is known about the contemporary “real-world” follow-up and adherence rates in the most common setting of urologic care, community (private) practice.4
Modeling the Incidence of Secondary Malignancy Related to Ionizing Radiation use in the Management of Nephrolithiasis
To model the risk of secondary malignancy and associated mortality due to ionizing radiation from the evaluation and management of nephrolithiasis.
The Distribution of Post-Void Residual (PVR) Volumes in People Seeking Care in the Symptoms of Lower Urinary Tract Dysfunction Network (LURN) Observational Cohort Study with Comparison to Asymptomatic Populations
To describe the distribution of post-void residual (PVR) volumes across patients with and without lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) and examine relationships between self-reported voiding symptoms, storage symptoms, and PVR.
To report success and patient reported urinary and sexual outcomes of patients who underwent anastomotic urethroplasty and dorsal buccal onlay urethroplasty.
To evaluate the histopathological correlation of recently described subclassification of Bosniak category 3 cysts (3s and 3n).
To determine whether frailty is associated with increased odds of 30-day surgical complications among men undergoing both artificial urinary sphincter (AUS placement and removal procedures and to determine whether frailty was associated with increased odds of having an AUS removal procedure.
A 73 year-old male patient presented with a history of moderate LUTS, namely frequency, nocturia and weak urinary stream. He had no history of previous surgery, or any medical conditions of notice, and he is a non-smoker, nonalcoholic. He has been diagnosed with benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH) ten years before, for which he was then being treated with dutasteride and tansulosin. Because of having slightly elevated PSA, which had been stable at 6ng/mL over the past years, the patient had also undergone to two twelve-core transrectal ultrasound guided (TRUS) biopsies.
