A STENTLESS MODIFIED LICH-GREGOIR TECHNIQUE FOR SAFE EARLY BLADDER CATHETER REMOVAL IN LIVING AND DECEASED KIDNEY TRANSPLANTS.

Wed, 01/19/2022 - 00:00
To describe a stentless modified Lich-Gregoir technique (mLG) for ureteroneocystostomy in renal transplantation (RT), with early bladder catheter (BC) removal (under 48 hours), and compare the postoperative results with those of the traditional technique (LG) with routine bladder catheter removal (4 to 5 days). The modification consists of maintaining a thin layer of detrusor fibers covering the bladder mucosa during dissection, which is incorporated into the anastomosis to reinforce the ureteroneocystostomy.

Evaluating Patient Preferences in Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia Treatment Using Conjoint Analysis

Tue, 01/18/2022 - 00:00
To quantify BPH patient preferences to promote guidelines-compliant, patient-centered care. Discordance between patient and urologist priorities for the treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) hinders patient-centered care. Physician assumptions regarding patient preferences lead to dissatisfied patients; a poor outcome in any quality of life surgery. American Urologic Association guidelines urge urologists to consider patient preferences when recommending a BPH treatment.

Language Differences in Letters of Recommendation Based On Gender of Letter Writer

Tue, 01/18/2022 - 00:00
Letters of Recommendation (LOR) play an integral role throughout the professional application process, often revealing personal and subjective qualities of an applicant that may otherwise be difficult to discern, with endorsements from mentors and respected leaders adding further credibility to an applicant's candidacy. In fact, previous studies have found that LORs tend to be one of the most, if not the most, important factors in selecting applicants for interviews. 1,2 Given the importance of LORs in individuals’ applications within the medical field, bringing awareness to LOR writers regarding potential gender biases is an important step towards decreasing said bias.

Crossed testicular ectopia: report of two cases in children of consanguineous parents

Fri, 01/14/2022 - 00:00
Crossed testicular ectopia (CTE) is an extremely rare anomaly of urogenital development. The etiopathogenic mechanism is unknown. Medical records of two biological siblings with a confirmed diagnosis of CTE being managed at our center were collected. The first patient was born with a non-palpable right teste. An exploratory laparoscopy was performed and a right CTE was found. The second patient had an incarcerated left inguinal hernia and a mesopenile hypospadias. During surgery a left CTE was observed.

Standardized Letters of Recommendation and Success in the Urology Match

Fri, 01/14/2022 - 00:00
Distinguishing between top residency applicants is challenging, but crucially important to ensure the continued success of individual programs and the field as a whole. Letters of recommendation (LOR) have long served as an important tool for selection of residents. In a survey by Weissbart et al, it was among the most important factors for selection of urology residents.1 In order to overcome the shortcomings of narrative LORs (such as subjectiveness, ambiguity, low inter-rater reliability, gender bias, etc.), standardized LORs (SLORs) were introduced in several specialties.

Transrectal Ultrasound-Guided Biopsy Should Continue to Be a Standard of Care for The Detection of Prostate Cancer

Fri, 01/14/2022 - 00:00
For men choosing to screen for prostate cancer (PCa), biopsy remains critical for diagnosis. While transrectal ultrasound-guided (TRUS) biopsy has been the standard of care for many years, recent concerns regarding post-procedural infection have led to increased interest in prostatic sampling via the transperineal (TP) approach. However, TRUS biopsy features important patient-related and physician/practice-related advantages compared to the TP method, and there are several useful strategies to effectively mitigate infectious concerns.
