PURPOSE: Until recently, tissue fibrosis-ultimately leading to permanent scaring-has been considered an irreversible process. However, recent findings indicate that it may be reversible after all. Vesicourethral anastomotic stenosis (VUAS) as fibrous narrowing is a frequent complication after radical prostatectomy with high recurrence rates and requires invasive treatment. The pathophysiology is poorly understood. Therefore, a combined mRNA and miRNA transcription profiling in tissue from VUAS was performed using nCounter technology...

PURPOSE: Our primary endpoint was to assess pathological response rate (pT0N0 and ≤pT1N0) for patients with BCa treated with the accelerated or dose dense MVAC (ddMVAC) chemotherapy followed by radical cystectomy (RC) in this real-word multi-institutional cohort. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed records of patients with urothelial cancer who underwent ddMVAC and RC at seven contributing institutions from 2000 to 2015. Patients with cT2-4a, M0 BCa were included...

PURPOSE: To investigate the prospective outcomes of day-case ureterorenoscopy (DC-URS) for stone disease. With the rising prevalence of stone disease in the face of finite resources, there is increasing pressure to undertake procedures as a day case avoiding in-patient stay. There are a limited number of studies reporting on the feasibility of ureteroscopy as a day-case procedure. This study aimed to investigate the prospective outcomes and predictors precluding to DC-URS for stone disease in patients treated in our university teaching hospital...

PURPOSE: The clinical term "prostatitis" refers to a clinical syndrome defined by the following 4 distinct entities: acute bacterial prostatitis (category 1), chronic bacterial prostatitis (category 2), chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome (category 3), and asymptomatic prostatitis (category 4) The etiology of the chronic forms is still not fully understood and choice of therapy is often debated. The objective of this systematic review is to collect evidence on the surgical treatment of the chronic form of prostatitis and to evaluate its clinical implication...

PURPOSE: Intracorporeal lithotripsy is becoming the most commonly used surgical method of stone treatment in Urology. The five major types of intracorporeal lithotripters are ultrasonic, ballistic, and combination lithotripters as well as laser and electrohydraulic lithotripters. The advantages and disadvantages of choosing each of these treatment modalities are reviewed. METHODS: Extensive review of literature was performed to identify the types of intracorporeal lithotripters...

OBJECTIVES: Shock wave lithotripsy (SWL) remains the only effective truly non-invasive treatment for nephrolithiasis. While single-treatment success rates may not equal those of ureteroscopy and percutaneous nephrolithotomy, it has an important role to play in the management of stones. In this paper, we outline the latest evidence-based recommendations for maximizing SWL outcomes, while minimizing complications. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A comprehensive review of the current literature was performed regarding maximizing SWL outcomes...

PURPOSE: To look at the bibliometric publication trends on 'Urolithiasis' and aspects of treatment and training associated with it over a period of 16 years from 2000 to 2015. To this end, we conducted this study to look at the publication trends associated with urolithiasis, including the use of simulation, laser technology, and all types of interventions for it. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We performed a systematic review of the literature using PubMed over the last 16 years, from January 2000 to December 2015 for all published papers on 'Urolithiasis'...

OBJECTIVE: To make a comparison between the safety and efficacy of micropercutaneous nephrolithotomy (microperc) and retrograde intrarenal surgery (RIRS) for the management of lower pole kidney stones up to 15 mm. PATIENTS AND METHODS: 60 patients presenting with solitary lower pole kidney stones up to 15 mm were included in the study between March 2013 and December 2015. Patients were randomized into Microperc or RIRS groups with computer-generated numbers. RESULTS: The mean stone size was 10...

OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to evaluate the factors affecting the lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) related quality of life (QoL) score. METHODS: This retrospective study analyzed 29,123 men who underwent health check-ups from January 2007 to July 2011 at a single institution. Those patients who completed the American urologic association symptom index (AUA-SI) with QoL, beck depression inventory (BDI) and state-trait anxiety inventory questionnaires were included in the study...

PURPOSE: Holmium:YAG laser is the most used laser for urolithiasis. Generally, we use metallic scissors to cut the fiber tip to restore its effectiveness. Many cleaving methods have been described to avoid fiber damage and to restore its greatest power to the fiber. There is a lack of information regarding which cleaving method should be used and its effect on the fiber. In order to compare these effects, we studied different cleavage methods in terms of power output and its effects on the fiber...

PURPOSE: Ureteral stenting is associated with various morbidity and reduced quality of life. We systematically evaluated the efficacy and safety of solifenacin as monotherapy, or combined therapy with tamsulosin versus control or tamsulosin monotherapy in stent-related symptoms (SRSs). MATERIALS AND METHODS: Randomized controlled trials evaluating solifenacin or its combination with tamsulosin for the treatment of SRSs were identified via a comprehensive search of Pubmed, Embase, Ovid, The Cochrane Library and relevant sources up to February 2017...

PURPOSE: To compare intra- and post-operative outcomes of endourological live surgical demonstrations (LSDs) and routine surgical practice (RSP) for urinary stones. METHODS: Consecutive ureterorenoscopic (URS) and percutaneous (PNL) urinary stone procedures over a 5-year period were reviewed. Procedures were divided into LSDs and RSP. Differences between the groups were separately analysed for URS and PNL. Primary outcomes included intra- and post-operative complication rates and grades...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the rate of venous thromboembolism (VTE) after nephrectomy with specific focus on event timing and location (before or after hospital discharge) in order to identify modifiable risk factors and establish benchmarks for preventive interventions. METHODS: Using the ACS-NSQIP database, we identified patients undergoing nephrectomy from 2006 to 2012. Patients were analyzed in two cohorts: collectively and by surgical approach [open vs. lap/robotic (MIS)]...

PURPOSE: To evaluate oncologic parameters of men with bothersome LUTS undergoing surgical treatment with HoLEP or TURP. METHODS: Five hundred and eighteen patients undergoing HoLEP (n = 289) or TURP (n = 229) were retrospectively analyzed for total PSA, prostate volume, PSA density, history of prostate biopsy, resected prostate weight, and histopathological features. Univariate and multivariate logistic regression models were used to identify independent predictors of incidental PCa (iPCa)...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the impact of lymph node dissection (LND) on clinical outcome during radical nephroureterectomy (RNU) for patients with upper urinary tract urothelial cancer (UTUC). METHODS: We, the Urologic Oncology Study Group of the Japan Clinical Oncology Group (JCOG), retrospectively collected data from patients with non-metastatic UTUC who underwent RNU in 30 centers in 1995-2009. Ineligible patients and patients with previous and/or synchronous bladder cancer were excluded, and the remaining 2037 patients were analyzed...

PURPOSE: This study aimed to evaluate (1) the time interval between a decision to commence on active surveillance (AS) and grade progression in community practice; (2) factors predicting grade progression in localised prostate cancer (CaP) patients apparently undergoing AS. METHODS: Data from the Prostate Cancer Outcomes Registry-Victoria were used to analyze men with Gleason 3 + 3 CaP or less who had at least one repeat biopsy. Unadjusted and adjusted 5-year Kaplan-Meier survival curves were used to assess the time to grade progression...

PURPOSE: Gleason score upgrading should be considered when indicating surgery in prostate cancer (PCa) patients. In elderly patients, definitive treatment of low-risk PCa must be weighed with the risks of overtreatment. Our aim was to evaluate rates of Gleason score upgrading in patients ≥75 years undergoing radical prostatectomy (RP) for localized PCa and to identify predictors associated with upgrading. METHODS: 3296 patients undergoing RP were retrospectively evaluated and categorized into age groups: <70 years (n = 2971) vs...
