OBJECTIVE: To test the hypothesis that targeted biopsy has a higher detection rate for clinically significant prostate cancer (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 prostate-specific antigen 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: During percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL), elevated renal pelvic pressures (RPPs) may spread infection through pyelovenous backflow whereas decreased pressures can hinder observation 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 one- vs two-tract access, rigid vs flexible nephroscopy, and suction vs no suction...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the impact of the specialty (urologist versus radiologist) of the physician obtaining percutaneous renal access (RA) on perioperative outcomes, complications, and costs of percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL). METHODS: We used data from a national hospital discharge database to identify patients undergoing PCNL between 2003-2015. Procedure codes related to RA were linked to physician specialty. We examined patient demographics, Charlson comorbidity index (CCI), postoperative complications, length of stay (LOS), and direct hospital costs as well as hospital and surgeon characteristics stratified by specialty of the physician obtaining RA...

PURPOSE: To compare the recovery of erections and potency following the transection of APAs in men undergoing robot-assisted radical prostatectomy (RARP) as compared to men with normal vascular anatomy. METHODS: A total of 880 consecutive patients who underwent RARP from January 1, 2007 to December 31, 2014 were included with prospectively collected data in cross-sectional analysis. Erectile function was assessed preoperatively and postoperatively at 3, 6, 12 and 24 months using the International Index of Erectile Function (IIEF)-5, a percent erection fullness compared to pre-operative status, and two Expanded Prostate Cancer Index (EPIC) questions: 1) are erections firm enough for penetration and 2) are they satisfactory? RESULTS: 231 (33...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Robot-assisted radical prostatectomy (RARP) has become the preferred surgical treatment for localized prostate cancer in the United States. Little is reported about the association between predischarge outcomes and postdischarge outcomes following RARP. The objective of this study was to explore the predischarge predictors of readmissions and postdischarge complications in RARP. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The National Surgery Quality Improvement Program (NSQIP) database was used to identify prostate cancer patients who underwent elective RARP from 2012 to 2014...

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 lymphoceles (SLs) compared with its extraperitoneal counterpart (eRARP) when bilateral pelvic lymph node dissection (BPLND) is performed. In this study, we aim to determine if there is a difference in SL formation and characteristics between the two approaches...

PURPOSE: Greater visual contrast between calculi and tissue would improve ultrasound (US) imaging of urolithiasis and potentially expand clinical use. The color Doppler twinkling artifact (TA) has been suggested to provide enhanced contrast of stones compared with brightness mode (B-mode) imaging, but results are variable. This work provides the first quantitative measure of stone contrast in humans for B-mode and color Doppler mode, forming the basis to improve US for the detection of stones...
