PURPOSE: The objective of this study was to assess whether CCDS might improve the outcome of testicular sperm retrieval in patients with azoospermia. Furthermore, we evaluated potential sonographic alterations of the testis before and after trifocal and Micro-TESE. METHODS: 78 patients were enrolled prospectively: 24 with obstructive azoospermia (OA) and 54 with non-obstructive azoospermia (NOA). 31 of 54 patients in the NOA group had negative surgical sperm retrieval...

PURPOSE: Management of urolithiasis in pregnancy can be challenging for most urologists with diagnostic and treatment dilemma to ensure the best outcome for both mother and fetus. We wanted to review the literature for urolithiasis in pregnancy with a practical management guide for urologists. METHODS: A non-systematic review of literature was carried out for all English language literature using Medline. To ensure a more comprehensive search, the review of diagnosis and management of pregnant patients with urolithiasis was carried out separately, by two authors independently...

INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES: To assess the 5-year outcomes of thulium vapoenucleation of the prostate (ThuVEP) in patients with benign prostatic obstruction (BPO) retrospectively. METHODS: Five-hundred patients were treated with ThuVEP between January 2007 and January 2010 at our institution. Patients were reassessed 1 and 5-years after ThuVEP with International Prostate Symptom Score (IPSS), Quality of Life (QoL), urinary peak flow (Qmax), postvoid residual volume (PVR), PSA and prostate volume...

PURPOSE: To correlate ureteral lesions visualized during ureteroscopy with histopathological findings. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Ureteral access sheaths (UAS) sized 13/15 Fr. were inserted bilaterally in 22 laboratory pigs. During retraction of the UAS with a semirigid ureteroscope inside, ureteral lesions were evaluated and registered using the Post-ureteroscopic lesion scale (PULS). Ureters were excised in vivo between the uretero-pelvic junction and the uretero-vesical junction...

PURPOSE: Most patients with primary aldosteronism (PA) show a significant decrease in kidney function after surgery. Glomerular hyperfiltration peculiar to PA can mask mild renal failure before surgery. The aim of this retrospective study was to investigate postoperative renal functional outcomes in PA patients from different viewpoints and to develop novel nomograms that can predict renal functional outcomes in PA patients after surgery. METHODS: 130 Japanese PA patients treated by unilateral laparoscopic adrenalectomy were retrospectively surveyed...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the efficacy of adjuvant systemic chemotherapy for locally advanced (pT3-4pN0/xM0) upper tract urothelial carcinoma (UTUC). MATERIALS AND METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed the medical records of 109 patients with pT3-4pN0/xM0 UTUC who had undergone radical nephroureterectomy between 1996 and 2013 at our four institutions. The patients were divided into two groups: those who received adjuvant chemotherapy (AC group) and those who did not (surgery-alone: SA group)...

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate whether the use of dutasteride is associated with a lower risk of transrectal prostate biopsy-associated urinary tract infection (TPBA-UTI) among men in the Reduction by Dutasteride of Prostate Cancer Events (REDUCE) study. METHODS: Retrospective analysis of 6045 men undergoing 2-year repeat prostate biopsy in REDUCE. Participants were randomized to receive dutasteride 0.5 mg or placebo daily. TPBA-UTI was defined as the presence of urinary symptoms and the prescription of antibiotics by the treating physician within 30 days after biopsy...

PURPOSE: To describe stone-free rates and complications of ureteroscopic treatment for impacted compared with non-impacted ureteral stones and evaluate predictive variables for impaction. METHODS: The Clinical Research Office of the Endourological Society prospectively collected 1 consecutive year of data from 114 centers worldwide. Patients eligible for inclusion were patients treated with ureteroscopy for ureteral stones. Patient characteristics, treatment details, and outcomes were compared with regard to stone impaction...

Urolithiasis is a significant worldwide source of morbidity, constituting a common urological disease that affects between 10 and 15% of the world population. Recent technological and surgical advances have replaced the need for open surgery with less invasive procedures. The factors which determine the indications for percutaneous nephrolithotomy include stone factors (stone size, stone composition, and stone location), patient factors (habitus and renal anomalies), and failure of other treatment modalities (ESWL and flexible ureteroscopy)...

There are several special situations in which urinary lithiasis presents management challenges to the urologist. An in-depth knowledge of the pathophysiology, unique anatomy, and treatment options is crucial in order to maintain good health in these patients. In this review, we summarize the current literature on the management of the following scenarios: bladder stones, stones in bowel disease, during pregnancy, in association with renal anomalies, with skeletal deformities, in urinary diversions, and in children...

PURPOSE: To report on the first short-term oncologic outcomes of percutaneous irreversible electroporation for small renal masses. METHODS: Patients with cT1a renal masses treated with irreversible electroporation from April 2013 through December 2016 were reviewed. Small, low complexity tumors were generally selected for irreversible electroporation using the NanoKnife(®) System (Angiodynamics, Latham, NY, USA). Surveillance imaging was performed post-operatively, and survival analysis was completed using the Kaplan-Meier method...

INTRODUCTION: To evaluate temporal trends in the delivery and extent of lymphadenectomy (LND) in radical nephroureterectomy (RNU) performed in upper tract urothelial carcinoma (UTUC) patients. METHODS: We evaluated a multi institutional collaborative database composed by 1512 consecutive patients diagnosed with UTUC treated with RNU between 1990 and 2016. Year of surgery were grouped in five periods: 1990-1996, 1997-2002, 2003-2007, 2008-2012 and 2013-2016. Data about LND were available for all patients and numbers of nodes removed and positive were reported by dedicate uropathologists...

PURPOSE: Endoscopic transurethral incision (TUI) of posterior urethral valve (PUV) can improve daytime urinary incontinence (DUI) and nocturnal enuresis (NE). However, the underlying mechanism has not been elucidated. In this study, we retrospectively examined the mobility of the urethra before and after TUI by measuring the urethral angle with voiding cystourethrography (VCUG), to clarify the effects of TUI on the morphology of the urethra during voiding. METHODS: Between July 2010 and December 2014, 29 boys with intractable DUI and/or NE were diagnosed as PUV and underwent endoscopic TUI...

OBJECTIVES: Monopolar transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) is the gold standard surgical treatment for bothersome moderate to severe lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) secondary to benign prostate obstruction. The aim of the study is to compare monopolar versus bipolar TURP focusing on operative and functional outcomes, and evaluating complications with a long-term follow-up. METHODS: From January 2007 to July 2014, a total of 497 patients were randomized and prospectively scheduled to undergo bipolar (251) or monopolar (246) TURP...
