Amyloidosis is a protein folding disorder characterized by the deposition of fibrillar proteins into solid organs or tissues. Primary localized amyloidosis of the bladder is very rare and can mimic bladder cancer in its presentation with hematuria, lower urinary tract symptoms or a mass on imaging. A case of localized amyloidosis of the bladder in a 48-year-old man with painless gross hematuria and evidence of bladder mass on ultrasound is presented. Amyloidosis is a rare but important non-malignant process of the bladder...

Oncocytic tumors arising from the adrenal gland are rare. Oncocytic adrenal neoplasms (OAN) may mimic adrenocortical carcinoma (ACC) at presentation, and can only be definitively diagnosed histologically. Most OANs are benign, and carry a favorable prognosis. We report on an 83-year-old female who, while being investigated for anemia and weight loss, was found to have a 23 cm adrenal mass concerning for ACC. Adrenalectomy and histopathology confirmed a malignant OAN, based on the Lin-Weiss-Bisceglia criteria...

Benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH) affects an estimated 60% of men over the age of 50 and 90% of men over the age of 80. The prostatic urethral lift (PUL) is a safe and effective office-based procedure that is used worldwide for the treatment of BPH in men who are dissatisfied with medications due to side effects or lack of efficacy or don't want to have a transurethral resection of the prostate due to the side effects and invasiveness of the procedure. In 2012 Barkin et al, published the standard technique for the delivery of the Urolift implant...

INTRODUCTION: We tested different classification systems in order to separate intermediate-risk prostate cancers into prognostic groups. We then examined which groups were most suited for either prostate seed brachytherapy (PB) or external beam radiotherapy (EBRT). MATERIALS AND METHODS: We selected patients with D'Amico intermediate-risk prostate cancer who were treated exclusively with either PB or EBRT. Patients were excluded if they had received androgen deprivation therapy in combination with EBRT or a follow up of < 30 months without recurrence...

INTRODUCTION: We sought to apply the principles of human factors research to robotic-assisted radical prostatectomy to understand where training and integration challenges lead to suboptimal and inefficient care. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Thirty-four robotic-assisted radical prostatectomy and bilateral pelvic lymph node dissections over a 20 week period were observed for flow disruptions (FD) - deviations from optimal care that can compromise safety or efficiency. Other variables - physician experience, trainee involvement, robot model (S versus Si), age, body mass index (BMI), and American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) physical status - were used to stratify the data and understand the effect of context...

INTRODUCTION: It is 40 years since the initial documentation of the efficacy of bacille Calmette-Guérin (BCG) in the management of non-muscle invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC) and probably an opportune a time as any to retrace the origins of this development and to reflect on the progress that has occurred on the use of immune modifiers in the treatment of NMIBC. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A PubMed search for publications on the history of BCG was conducted, and those related to the development of the vaccine for protection against tuberculosis as well as those published in the last 40 years related to its use for treatment for NMIBC were selected for review...

Richard M Roach
Men with either chronic or temporary urinary retention symptoms are common patients treated in a urology practice. Both indwelling and intermittent catheterization are widely used to treat this condition. These approaches are associated with significant complications including infection and reduced quality-of-life. Infection is a target for quality improvement and cost reduction strategies in most care settings today. We use a temporary prostatic stent (TPS) to address these issues in our practice. In this report, we describe our approach to patient selection, sizing, placement and follow up of 214 TPS placed in 56 men with chronic or temporary urinary retention in an office setting...

A 65-year-old female presented to clinic requesting follow up for a history of right robotic partial nephrectomy done at an outside institution 2 years prior. Initial pathology demonstrated a grade 2/4 3.4 cm clear cell renal cell carcinoma with negative margins. There was no tumor necrosis, sarcomatoid differentiation, or lymphovascular invasion. High quality follow up imaging initially revealed a pseudoaneurysm in the central portion of the right kidney. The patient was sent to interventional radiology for angioembolization...

Bilateral obstructing ureteric calculi is a rare cause of acute renal failure. Although urolithiasis in later pregnancy is not uncommon, the development of bilateral obstruction secondary to ureteric calculi in the first trimester is rare and poses difficulty to diagnosis and management. Symptoms of diseases and physiological changes associated with pregnancy can obscure diagnosis of urolithiasis and obstructive uropathy. Advances in minimally invasive endourology afford intervention with reduced risk to fetal health...

INTRODUCTION: Surgical site infection [SSI] is a risk for any surgical procedure, including hypospadias repair. Prophylactic antibiotic therapy for patients having surgery is often effective in preventing SSIs, but with increasing rates of antibiotic resistance, this practice has been questioned. The objectives of this study are 1) to assess the incidence of SSIs in patients following stented, distal hypospadias repair and 2) to observe for any potential difference in the incidence of SSIs for patients with and without preoperative antibiotic utilization in this setting...
