OBJECTIVES: To examine the impact on quality of life of recurrent acute uncomplicated urinary tract infection among premenopausal Singaporean women, and to determine the risk factors for lower quality of life among these patients. METHODS: A total of 85 patients with recurrent acute uncomplicated urinary tract infection who were referred to the Urology Department at the National University Hospital, Singapore, were prospectively recruited over a 3-year period to complete the validated Short Form 36 Health Survey version 1...

OBJECTIVES: To examine the prognostic role of the pretreatment aspartate transaminase/alanine transaminase or De Ritis ratio in patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma receiving first-line systemic tyrosine kinase inhibitor therapy. METHODS: We retrospectively searched the medical records of 579 patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma who visited Samsung Medical Center, Seoul, Korea, from January 2001 through August 2016. After excluding 210 patients, we analyzed 360 patients who received first-line tyrosine kinase inhibitor therapy...

OBJECTIVES: To identify predictive factors of biochemical recurrence for patients undergoing high-intensity focused ultrasound treatment for localized prostate cancer. METHODS: We retrospectively identified patients receiving whole-gland prostate ablation with high-intensity focused ultrasound for localized prostate cancer from 2009 to 2015. All the patients received pre-high-intensity focused ultrasound radical transurethral resection of the prostate. We included perioperative parameters as follows: age, preoperative prostate volume, stage of operation, initial prostate-specific antigen, T stage, postoperative prostate-specific antigen nadir, Gleason score, time to prostate-specific antigen nadir and the presence of prostate-specific antigen biochemical recurrence...

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the long-term safety and efficacy of vibegron 50 mg and 100 mg, a novel β3 -adrenoreceptor agonist, in Japanese patients with overactive bladder. METHODS: This was a 1-year, multicenter, open-label, non-controlled study. After a 1-week observation phase, patients were treated with vibegron for 52 weeks. When the efficacy was insufficient after an 8-week treatment with 50 mg, the dose was increased to 100 mg and maintained for an additional 44 weeks...

OBJECTIVES: To analyze cases of therapy-related acute myeloid leukemia and myelodysplastic syndrome diagnosed after chemotherapy for refractory testicular and extragonadal germ cell tumor in our experience. METHODS: A total of 171 consecutive patients who were diagnosed and treated as refractory germ cell tumor and had records of detailed chemotherapy doses between April 1998 and December 2015 were retrospectively reviewed. RESULTS: Four testicular tumor patients (4/171, 2...

REVIEW
Takahiro Kimura, Shin Egawa
The incidence of prostate cancer has been increasing worldwide in recent years. The GLOBOCAN project showed that prostate cancer was the second most frequently diagnosed cancer and the fifth leading cause of cancer mortality among men worldwide in 2012. This trend has been growing even in Asian countries, where the incidence had previously been low. However, the accuracy of data about incidence and mortality as a result of prostate cancer in some Asian countries is limited. The cause of this increasing trend is multifactorial...

OBJECTIVES: To investigate the impact of postoperative time to nadir of estimated glomerular filtration rate on renal functional changes after robot-assisted partial nephrectomy. METHODS: From 2006 to 2015, 287 patients with renal mass who underwent robot-assisted partial nephrectomy in a referral center were analyzed. The cohort was evaluated based on their time to develop nadir: group 1 (no nadir), group 2 (<48 h) and group 3 (≥48 h). The outcome measures were to evaluate the renal function recovery between groups, risk factors for development of nadir ≥48 h, as well as predictors of chronic kidney disease upstaging...

OBJECTIVE: To compare nationwide outcomes of tension-free vaginal mesh surgery and laparoscopic sacrocolpopexy for the treatment of pelvic organ prolapse in Japan. METHODS: Using the Diagnosis Procedure Combination database, we collected data on female patients who underwent tension-free vaginal mesh surgery or laparoscopic sacrocolpopexy for pelvic organ prolapse from April 2014 to March 2015. We compared the proportion of perioperative adverse events, duration of anesthesia, total costs and postoperative length of stay between the groups...

REVIEW
Fumihiko Urabe, Nobuyoshi Kosaka, Takahiro Kimura, Shin Egawa, Takahiro Ochiya
Extracellular vesicles are nanometer-sized lipid membranous vesicles that are released from almost all types of cells into the extracellular space. Extracellular vesicles have gained considerable attention in the past decade, and emerging evidence suggests that they play novel roles in mediating cancer biology. Extracellular vesicles contain pathogenic components, such as proteins, DNA fragments, messenger ribonucleic acids, non-coding ribonucleic acids and lipids, all of which mediate paracrine signaling in the tumor microenvironment...

OBJECTIVES: To find a new appropriate evaluation for urethral plate quality in hypospadias repair, with particular interest in the width proportion of the urethral plate to the glans, serving as an appraisal index. METHODS: Data were prospectively collected from prepubertal boys who underwent primary tubularized incised plate hypospadias repair between January 2014 and April 2016 in one center. Intrinsic parameters of the penis (meatal location, glans width, urethral plate width and curvature degree) were measured during the operation...

Here, we report a case of a 68-year-old woman with cT4N0M1 (liver invasion and multiple lung metastases) metastatic renal cell carcinoma. We could carry out less invasive nephrectomy with partial hepatectomy because nivolumab administration as second-line therapy reduced the primary tumor remarkably. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report of the use of nivolumab before carrying out surgery, and histological findings showed a pathological complete response.

OBJECTIVE: To compare complications of ultrasound-guided percutaneous renal biopsy using two needle gauges (16-G and 18-G). METHODS: A total of 238 individuals with renal biopsy indication were included and randomly separated into two groups: ultrasound-guided percutaneous renal biopsy procedure carried out with a 16-G or 18-G needle. The adequacy of biopsy samples and post-procedure complications were compared between the two groups. RESULTS: The procedures carried out with a 16-G needle collected fragments with a mean of 22...
