OBJECTIVES: To determine the characteristics of testicular germ cell tumors in older patients. METHODS: A testicular cancer survey was carried out by the Japanese Urological Association in 2011 to register the testicular cancers diagnosed in 2005 and 2008. The survey included age, presenting symptoms, physical examination findings, tumor markers, histopathology, clinical stage, treatment and clinical outcomes. These factors were compared between patients aged ≥50 years and those aged <50 years at diagnosis...

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate whether the sling position is associated with particular types of complications in patients undergoing suburethral sling placement for stress urinary incontinence. METHODS: Data from 100 women diagnosed at the Evangelical Hospital Hagen-Haspe with complications after suburethral sling insertion were analyzed. All patients underwent pelvic floor ultrasound to assess: urethral length, sling location in relation to the urethral length (%) and the sling distance to the longitudinal smooth muscle complex of the urethra (the sling-longitudinal smooth muscle distance)...

OBJECTIVES: To investigate the predictive values of perioperative factors and to develop a nomogram for intravesical recurrence after radical nephroureterectomy in patients with upper urinary tract urothelial carcinoma. METHODS: A retrospective analysis of 144 patients who underwent radical nephroureterectomy from 1996 to 2014 was carried out. The actuarial probabilities of the intravesical recurrence-free survival rate were calculated using the Kaplan-Meier method...

OBJECTIVES: To examine contemporary rates of pathological features and mortality for adenocarcinoma of the urinary bladder in the USA using population-based data analysis. METHODS: We relied on 10 024 patients with non-metastatic bladder cancer diagnosed between 2004 and 2013 within the Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results registries. Logistic regression analyses focused on grade and stage. Kaplan-Meier analyses assessed cancer-specific mortality rates in adenocarcinoma and urothelial carcinoma of the bladder...

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate treatment results of electroejaculation in patients with spinal cord injuries and the additional value of repeated electroejaculation. METHODS: We carried out a retrospective chart analysis of all spinal cord injury patients treated with electroejaculation at University Medical Center Utrecht, Utrecht, the Netherlands, from January 1994 to January 2015. Data were collected on the patients' demographics and medical history. We evaluated sperm quality according to World Health Organization standards, pregnancy and delivery rates...

OBJECTIVES: To clarify the incidence rate of post-transplant diabetes mellitus and associated risk factors in Japanese kidney transplant recipients, and to explore which treatment components are most effective in reducing post-transplant diabetes mellitus. METHODS: We analyzed 849 Japanese non-diabetic adult recipients who had undergone living kidney transplantation and had received tacrolimus-based immunosuppression from 1996 to 2013 with a median follow-up of 5 years...

REVIEW
Hiroshi Miyamoto
Despite significant advances in patient selection as well as surgical technique over the past few decades, it is still not uncommon for patients with urological malignancy and positive surgical margins to be observed. Meanwhile, intraoperative pathology consultation with frozen section assessment, which generally provides useful information for the optimal procedure, has been widely utilized for the assessment of surgical margins during urological surgeries. Thus, it remains unanswered whether intraoperative frozen section assessment has an impact on final surgical margin status as well as long-term oncological outcomes...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the diagnostic properties of multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging in the detection, localization and characterization of prostate cancer using three-dimensional transperineal template mapping biopsy histopathology as the comparator. METHODS: A retrospective analysis of patients undergoing prostate multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging followed by three-dimensional transperineal template mapping biopsy was carried out. For imaging and pathology data, the prostate was divided in octants with the urethra being the midline...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the prognostic values of perinephric fat invasion and renal vein invasion in pT3a renal cell carcinoma, as stand-alone factors and in combination with tumor size and Fuhrman grade. METHODS: Survival data of pT1 and pT2 renal cell carcinomas were analyzed alongside pT3a tumors of similar size bands (pT1 vs pT3a <7 cm, pT2 vs pT3a >7 cm). Patients with adjuvant therapy, positive surgical margins, metastasis or pT3b-pT4 tumors were excluded...

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the effect of potassium-sodium citrate on the development of computed tomography-detected renal microcalculi into symptomatic stones in calcium stone-forming patients. METHODS: Patients (aged 20-80 years) with history of calcium component stones who visited Nagoya City Hospital, Nagoya, Aichi, Japan, between April 2009 and June 2014 were included. They were retrospectively divided into those who did not receive potassium-sodium citrate (non-citrate group, n = 157) and those who did (citrate group, n = 60)...

OBJECTIVES: To compare the cytokine profile between human herpesvirus 8 seropositive and seronegative men with and without prostate cancer. METHODS: The study sample was obtained from the Tobago Prostate Survey, an ongoing study of prostate cancer in the Caribbean island of Tobago. Participants in the study were recruited mostly by public service announcement and by word of mouth. For analyses of circulating levels of pro-inflammatory cytokines, participants with biopsy-confirmed prostate cancer (n = 79) were compared with control participants (n = 87)...

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the impact of obesity and morbid obesity on short-term outcomes after laparoscopic adrenalectomy. METHODS: The study included 520 consecutive patients undergoing laparoscopic adrenalectomy for adrenal tumor. The entire study group was divided depending on the body mass index: group 1 (normal weight), <25 kg/m(2) ; group 2 (overweight), 25-30 kg/m(2) ; and group 3 (obese) 30-40 kg/m(2) . Additionally, group 4 (morbidly obese) was distinguished...

OBJECTIVES: To identify predictive factors for the severity of epididymitis and to develop an algorithm guiding decisions on how to manage patients with this disease. METHODS: A retrospective study was carried out on 160 epididymitis patients at Keio University Hospital. We classified cases into severe and non-severe groups, and compared clinical findings at the first visit. Based on statistical analyses, we developed an algorithm for predicting severe cases. We validated the algorithm by applying it to an external cohort of 96 patients at Tokyo Medical Center...
