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)
To explore the treatment options for chronic urinary retention (CUR) in men, including treatment-related complications and consequences.
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.
