Understanding the Health Characteristics and Treatment Choices of Older Men with Stress Urinary Incontinence
To describe the health characteristics and current treatment choices of male stress urinary incontinence (mSUI) patients to inform patient-centered decision-making.
: To characterize elective, post-neonatal operative circumcision at US children's hospitals, in the context of established sociodemographic disparities in access to neonatal circumcision.
To review medical malpractice trends and to identify the most common claims filed against medical providers for the management of patients with priapism.
TESTICULAR SPERM ASPIRATION (TESA) OR MICRODISSECTION TESTICULAR SPERM EXTRACTION (MICRO-TESE): WHICH APPROACH IS BETTER IN MEN WITH CRYPTOZOOSPERMIA AND SEVERE OLIGOZOOSPERMIA?
To evaluate and compare sperm retrieval outcomes by testicular sperm aspiration (TESA) and micro-dissection testicular sperm extraction (micro-TESE) in non-azoospermic men.
Fistula formation between the kidney and the colon is a rare occurrence. Colorenal fistulas have been reported after renal cryoablation, calculous pyonephrosis, and renal cell carcinoma. Fistula formation is reported in as many as 35% of patients with Crohn's disease. Crohn's-related urinary fistulas may include enterovesical, enteroureteral, rectourethral, urethrocutaneous, and entero-urachal fistulas. Here, we report a rare case of a patient who was found to have a left colorenal fistula in the setting of a left staghorn calculus and recurrent urinary tract infections with a question about the eventual definitive management of the patient.
Lower urinary tract function in patients with inflammatory encephalomyelopathy: characteristics of urodynamics, neurological deficits and magnetic resonance imaging
To report the clinical data in a large population of patients affected by inflammatory encephalomyelopathy.
To present the surgical results and the functional outcomes after surgical correction of congenital penile curvature (CPC) by different plication techniques.
To help improve operating room efficiency in a tertiary care facility, Six Sigma analysis was utilized. Six Sigma is a technique driven by data, methodology, and a philosophy of continuous improvement to help create a system in which 99.99966% of products are free from defects. This process helps to reduce variability and waste in production, while increasing quality and decreasing cost of the final product.
Prospective comparison of contrast-enhanced ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging to computer tomography for the evaluation of complex cystic renal lesions
To prospectively evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of contrast enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) and MRI compared to computed tomography (CT) as the current gold standard for the characterization of cystic renal lesions using the Bosniak classification.
Salvage Enbloc Thulium Fiber Laser Enucleation of Prostate for Giant Prostatomegaly after Prostatic Urethral Lift
Prostatic urethral lift (PUL) is an accepted treatment modality for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and is currently recommended for surgical management of prostates < 80 grams in size.1 However, in reality some patients with prostate > 80 gram also receive PUL.2 A substantial number of these patients may requirement re-treatment for recurrent or persistent lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) after PUL.3-5 Patients with larger prostates who fail PUL might be better managed with endoscopic enucleation which is a size-independent modality for treatment of BPH.
COMPARISON OF MICROSCOPIC HEMATURIA GUIDELINES AS APPLIED IN 1,018 PATIENTS WITH MICROSCOPIC HEMATURIA
To compare the 2012 American Urological Association (AUA) and 2020 AUA/Society of Urodynamics, Female Pelvic Medicine & Urogenital Reconstruction (SUFU) microscopic hematuria (MH) guidelines as applied in 1,018 patients with MH, to confirm of risk groups and to investigate the natural history of patients with MH.
Post-surgical complications after bladder outlet reducing surgery: an analysis of the FDA Manufacturer and User Facility Device Experience (MAUDE) database
To examine voluntary reports in the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) Manufacturer and User Facility Device Experience (MAUDE) database, categorize complications and assign device-related causality with transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP), prostatic urethral lift (PUL), and transurethral water vapor therapy (TWVT).
Knowledge and Attitudes Regarding Surgical Castration in Men Receiving Androgen Deprivation Therapy for Metastatic Prostate Cancer and Their Relationship to Health-Related Quality of Life.
To determine the attitudes and education regarding surgical castration in men receiving androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) for metastatic prostate cancer (mCaP).
Using Preoperative Pelvic Floor Assessment to Predict Early Return of Continence after Robotic Radical Prostatectomy
To evaluate whether pre-operative pelvic floor physical therapy (PFPT) parameters may predict early return of urinary continence after RP. While long-term urinary continence is eventually achieved in most patients who undergo radical prostatectomy (RP), predicting when patients will become continent is challenging. Prior studies aiming to predict return of post-operative continence have not evaluated patient-specific pelvic floor strength parameters.
Desmoplastic small round cell tumor (DSRCT) is a rare malignancy believed to originate from the serous membranes and it is highly aggressive with 5-year overall survival of 18.4%. Only a small number of DSRCT cases have been documented. Here, we report findings of DSRCT of the kidney on 18F-FDG PET/CT in a 30-year-old woman who presented with repetitive pulmonary infection and spontaneous pneumothorax.
ATR and BRCA2 simultaneous mutation in a ccRCC with sarcomatoid differentiation and extensive metastases: a case report
The genomic landscape and driver-gene mutations differ significantly among diverse histological subtypes of clear cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC) due to the intratumoral heterogeneity. Frequent mutations in canonical DNA damage response (DDR) genes, such as BRCA1/2 or ATR serine/threonine kinase (ATR) haven't been reported even in large-scale genomic profiling of ccRCC researches. Herein, we reported a rare ccRCC harboring ATR and BRCA2 simultaneous mutation with complicated morphologies and extensive metastases.
Development and Testing of an Anatomic in vitro Kidney Model for Measuring Intrapelvic Pressure During Ureteroscopy
To create an in vitro anatomic bench model that can mimic in vivo intrapelvic pressure (IPP) during ureteroscopy (URS) and compare it against existing in vivo and ex vivo data.
To compare perioperative outcomes between open conversion and planned open surgical approach and to investigate trends.
Voiding and storage domain-specific symptom score outcomes after prostate artery embolization for lower urinary tract symptoms and urinary retention
To characterize voiding and storage symptom domain-specific outcomes after prostate artery embolization (PAE) to treat lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) or urinary retention caused by benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).
Preoperative Modified Spermatic Cord Block PREDICTS SUCCESS in Candidates for Microscopic Spermatic cord denervation
To examine the utility of a modified spermatic cord block (MSCB) that targets known contributors to refractory chronic scrotal content pain (CSCP) at predicting postoperative pain relief following a microscopic spermatic cord denervation (MSCD).
