OBJECTIVES: To report the prevalence of research misrepresentation among urology residency applicants and assess its effect on match success. METHODS: All applications to the Columbia University urology residency program for the 2014- 2015 match cycle were reviewed. "In-press," "accepted," and "submitted" manuscripts were verified using PubMed, Google Scholar, and journal websites. Misrepresentation for "in-press" and "accepted" manuscripts was defined as: 1) nonexistent manuscript, 2) non-authorship of existent manuscript, 3) self-promotion to a higher author rank, and/or 4) existent manuscript in a non-peer-reviewed publication...

OBJECTIVES: To assess the association of histopathological parameters in non-neoplastic renal parenchyma with development of new onset chronic kidney disease (CKD) after radical nephrectomy. METHODS: Data were extracted from 222 patients who underwent radical nephrectomy. The Modification of Diet in Renal Disease (MDRD) formula was used. The study end point was development of CKD, defined as an estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) of less than 60ml/minute/1,73m(2)...

OBJECTIVES: To examine the diagnostic value of pudendal somatosensory evoked potentials (SEP) in pudendal nerve entrapment neuropaty (PNE) by stimulating the two sides separately after provocation by a standard sitting position. Routine pudendal SEPs performed in the supine position with bilateral simultaneous stimulation may fail to show the abnormality because the complaints of PNE appear or worsen in the sitting position. METHODS: Forty-nine patients with PNE and 16 controls were included...

OBJECTIVE: To describe a technique combining the implantation of fiducials and a prostatic spacer (hyaluronic acid (HA)) to decrease the rectal toxicity after an image-guided EBRT with hypofractionation for prostate cancer and to assess the tolerance and the learning curve of the procedure. MATERIAL & METHOD: Thirty patients with prostate cancer at low or intermediate risk were included in a phase II trial: image-guided EBRT of 62Gy in 20 fractions of 3.1Gy with intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT)...

OBJECTIVES: To investigate patient perception of ejaculatory volume reduction after HoLEP. METHODS: A total of 192 patients were included in the analysis. All patients completed six self-developed, non-validated questionnaires. The questionnaires were composed of questions involving overall satisfaction, voiding symptom change, current experience of sexual intercourse, ejaculatory volume change, change of orgasmic intensity, and the patient's perception of postoperative ejaculatory volume reduction...

We describe the imaging findings of a case of an intraabdominal gossypiboma (retained surgical sponge) in an asymptomatic 61-year-old man who underwent an emergency nephrectomy because of a Wunderlich syndrome secondary to a renal cell carcinoma. A follow-up computed tomography (CT) was performed 4 months after the emergency surgery and showed an extraperitoneal lesion with gas bubbles and radiopaque markings in the left hemiabdomen, consistent with a retained surgical sponge ("gossypiboma" or "textiloma") in the anterior pararenal space...

Herein, we describe a case of a 63-year-old male who underwent MRI-guided biopsy of a suspicious lesion in the prostate followed by focal laser ablation. Radical prostatectomy was performed 15 months following focal laser ablation for persistent cancer adjacent to the treatment zone. We provide images from the initial MRI, post-ablation MRI, and the whole-mount radical prostatectomy specimen. The present case demonstrates the confined, localized effect of focal laser ablation, and also illustrates the advantage of expanded treatment margins...

OBJECTIVE: To describe the experience and technique of zero-ischemia laparoscopic-assisted partial nephrectomy at The Hospital for Sick Children, as an alternative to the traditional open approach for nephron sparing surgery in selected children with Wilms' tumors (WT). MATERIALS AND METHODS: Patients with diagnosis of WT treated with neoadjuvant chemotherapy and who underwent laparoscopic-assisted nephron-sparing surgery at the Hospital for Sick Children from 2012-2016 were identified and charts reviewed retrospectively...

Primary renal Ewing sarcoma is extremely rare and carries a dismal prognosis. It is particularly diagnostically challenging due to its ability to mimic other round cell tumors. Herein we report such a case in a 28-year-old white female. The diagnosis was confirmed by immunophenotyping, fluorescence in-situ hybridization and RT-PCR analyses.

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the relationship between changes in weight, waist circumference (WC), metabolic syndrome (MetS), and prostate growth over 5 years in adult population. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Data were collected from 1,088 adult males (age ≥ 40 years) without history of prostate cancer who underwent more than 2 general health screenings between 2006 and 2013. Percent changes in prostate volume (PV) were assessed for 5 years after baseline measurements. Association between prostate growth and change in weight, WC and MetS status, respectively, were calculated using uni- and multivariate linear regression analyses...

OBJECTIVE: To examine the relationship between health status and health service utilisation (including conventional and complementary and alternative medicine (CAM)) accessed by women experiencing urinary incontinence. While a high number of younger women report symptoms of urinary incontinence (UI), such as leaking urine, only a small proportion seek help for these symptoms. METHODS: The Australian Longitudinal Study on Women's Health (ALSWH) is a large nationally representative study that investigates the health and wellbeing of women...

OBJECTIVE: To identify factors associated with successful ultrasound guidance for each surgical step of ultrasound-guided percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL). MATERIALS AND METHODS: Consecutive patients undergoing PCNL between March 2015 and June 2016 were prospectively enrolled. An attempt was made to utilize ultrasound guidance in renal access, tract dilation, and nephrostomy tube placement for each patient. For steps during which ultrasound guidance was unsuccessful, fluoroscopic screening was applied...

OBJECTIVE: To analyze bleeding related complications among patients on long term anticoagulation (AC) undergoing ureteroscopy (URS). Current AUA/ICUD guidelines state it is safe to continue AC in routine URS; however, these recommendations are based on small case series. PATIENTS AND METHODS: 4,799 URS procedures performed at our institution between June 2009 and February 2016 were identified. Records were then retrospectively reviewed to confirm AC use and identify periprocedural complications...

OBJECTIVE: To identify prognostic and treatment factors for primary urethral cancer using a nationwide database. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The National Cancer Database (NCDB) was queried for all cases of primary urethral cancer from 2004-2013. Patients with other cancer diagnoses, metastasis or diagnosis on autopsy we excluded. Proportional hazards regression was used to identify independent predictors of overall survival in patients with primary urethral cancer. Because we hypothesized that predictors may covary by sex, we also performed regression analysis stratified by sex...

OBJECTIVE: To assess the long-term impact of bladder neck incision (BNI) on continence and ejaculatory function of adults who underwent concurrent posterior urethral valve (PUV) ablation and BNI during childhood. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A retrospective chart review was performed to find all adult patients with relevant history. All patients had undergone BNI at 6 o'clock proximal to the verumontanum with caution to leave the adventitia and verumontanum untouched...
