OBJECTIVES: To study the first reported case of intravesical Angiomyofibroblastoma (AMFB). AMFB is an uncommon benign mesenchymal lesion, mostly described in the lower female genital tract, especially in the vulva and less commonly the vagina. It is rarely seen in the male genital tract. The importance of this rare neoplasm is related to its potential mimicry of more infiltrative and prognostically less favorable lesions, such as aggressive angiomyxomas, that are found in the same anatomic area...

Duncan R Morhardt, Amy Luckenbaugh, Cathy Goldstein, Gary J Faerber
OBJECTIVE: To demonstrate that CAMDs are practical for monitoring resident sleep while on call. Studies that have directly monitored resident sleep are limited, likely due to both cost and difficulty in study interpretation. The advent of wearable commercial activity monitoring devices (CAMDs) that estimate sleep presents the opportunity to more readily evaluate resident sleep in physically active settings and "home call," an coverage arrangement familiar to urology programs. METHODS: Twelve urology residents were outfitted with Fitbit® Flex devices during "home call" for a total of 57 (of 64, or 89%) call/post-call night pairs...
