OBJECTIVES: To test the hypothesis that targeted biopsy has a higher detection rate for clinically significant prostate (csPCa) than systematic biopsy. We defined csPCa as any Gleason sum ≥ 7 cancer. In patients with Prostate Imaging - Reporting and Data System (PI-RADS) 3 lesions, to determine if factors such as PSA density (PSAD) and prostate health index (PHI) can predict csPCa and help select patients for biopsy. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We report the first series of targeted biopsies in Southeast Asian men, with comparison against systematic biopsy...

INTRODUCTION: The management protocol for colon perforation during percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PNL) is controversial due to the scarcity of reported cases and their management diversity. We present our management experience of colon perforation during PNL. MATERIALS AND METHODS: All PNL operations between April 2004 and September 2016 in our center (N=11376) were reviewed for the occurrence and management of colon perforation. We typically performed PNL with insertion of nephrostomy tube before mid 2007...

INTRODUCTION: During percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL), elevated renal pelvic pressures (RPP) may spread infection through pyelovenous backflow while decreased pressures can hinder visualization and increase bleeding. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effects of multiple access tracts and different sized endoscopic equipment on RPP in a porcine model. MATERIALS AND METHODS: RPP was measured in 1 versus 2-tract access, rigid versus flexible nephroscopy, and suction versus no suction...

This study demonstrates the use of retrograde perfusion sphincterometry (RPS) to measure retrograde leak point pressure (RLPP) during robot assisted laparoscopic radical prostatectomy (RALP) before establishment of pneumoperitoneum, after insufflation; and before and after the use of an autologous sub-urethral sling using vas deferens, after the anastomosis was completed. The adjustment of the sling to achieve optimal sub-urethral support was achieved by measuring the RLPP intra operatively using RPS. While the study does demonstrate the use of a simple technique to study the RLPP during RALP, data to confirm that the sling helps with early urinary continence (EUC) is lacking...

While adjuvant topical mitomycin C (MMC) is well established in realms of bladder cancer, its use in upper tract urothelial tumours (UTUC) is still somewhat limited with only few series reported worldwide. The authors present their series of 27 patients (28 renal units) on the role of adjuvant MMC after complete endoscopic control of UTUC with a median follow-up of 19 months (7-92 months). Their recurrence free survival of 62% at 3 years represents a medium term favourable result, especially in low-grade tumours...

<i>Background</i> The standard treatment of T1 renal cell carcinoma is (partial-) nephrectomy. For patients where surgery is not the treatment of choice, for example in the elderly, in case of severe comorbidity, inoperability or refusal of surgery, alternative treatment options are available. These treatment options include active surveillance, radiofrequency ablation, cryoablation, microwave ablation or stereotactic body radiotherapy. In the present overview, the efficacy, safety and outcome of these different options are summarized, particularly focusing on recent developments...

INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVE: With the peritoneum acting as a natural surface for lymphatic reabsorption, transperitoneal robot-assisted radical prostatectomy (tRARP) is thought to be associated with a lower incidence of symptomatic lymphocele (SL) compared to its extraperitoneal counterpart (eRARP) when bilateral pelvic lymph node dissection (BPLND) is performed. Herein, we aim to determine if there is a difference in SL formation and characteristics between the two approaches. METHODS: We reviewed the records of patients who underwent eRARP or tRARP and BPLND at a tertiary care academic center from July 1, 2003 to May 31, 2016...

PURPOSE: To test the impact of surgeon experience on urinary continence (UC) recovery after robot-assisted radical prostatectomy (RARP). MATERIALS AND METHODS: The study included 1477 consecutive patients treated with RARP by four surgeons between 2006 and 2014. UC recovery was defined as being completely dry over a 24-hour period at follow-up. Surgeon experience was coded as the total number of RARP performed by the surgeon before the patient's operation. Multivariable analysis tested the association between surgeon experience and UC recovery...

PURPOSE: Endoscopic management of upper tract urothelial carcinoma (UTUC) is associated with higher recurrences, which could be reduced by application of topical therapy. Adjuvant induction Bacillus Calmette-Guerin has shown inferior outcomes for UTUC compared to bladder cancer, and maintenance regimens for UTUC are unexplored. We report on the efficacy, safety, and tolerability of Mitomycin C (MMC) induction and maintenance adjuvant topical therapy for UTUC. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Patients with UTUC who received adjuvant topical therapy after complete endoscopic control of Ta/T1 tumors were retrospectively reviewed...

INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVE There is limited data regarding optimal laser and energy settings during stone fragmentation. We assessed effects on fragmentation using a variety of energy and frequency settings with two laser systems. METHODS Artificial stones were created using BegoStone (Streeper et al 2016). A clear PVC tube with an inner diameter of 13mm was closed at one end with a removable plug to create the in vitro ureteral and calyceal environments. The Lumenis Pulse 120H and the Cook Rhapsody H-30 holmium lasers were studied in the calyceal and ureteral models...

INTRODUCTION: Patients with ileal conduit urinary diversions are at an increased risk of long-term upper urinary tract (UUT) complications, including anastomotic strictures, infections, and urolithiasis. The reconstructed urinary system poses challenges for endoscopic manipulation. We present and describe our dual-center experience in performing retrograde ureteroscopy to treat or diagnose UUT abnormalities in patients with ileal conduit incontinent diversion. PATIENT AND METHODS: We performed a retrospective analysis of medical records for all patients with previous urinary diversion who underwent retrograde ureteroscopic procedures via the ileal loop in our institutions over a 9 year period (between June 2007 and August 2016)...

INTRODUCTION: Immediate ureteroscopic treatment for patients presenting to the emergency room with symptomatic ureterolithiasis is more commonly being utilized. Recent reports demonstrate good efficacy for emergency ureteroscopy (URS); however, preoperative predictors of treatment success have not been described. In this study, we report our multicenter experience with emergency URS and identify predictors of successful treatment. We also describe the Emergency Ureteral Stone Treatment (EUST) score, which integrates these predictors and stratifies patients into those that are likely and unlikely to have successful treatment...
