PURPOSE: We discuss the safety and perioperative outcomes of a 2-week interval between prostate biopsy and laparoscopic radical prostatectomy (LRP). MATERIALS AND METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed the medical records of 182 patients with prostate cancer (PCa) who underwent transperitoneal LRP 2 weeks after prostate biopsy between 2012 and 2015. We evaluated the following perioperative outcomes: operative time, estimated blood loss (EBL), infection, conversion to open surgery, positive surgery margins (PSM), and complications...

PURPOSE: Stress urinary incontinence (SUI) and pelvic organ prolapse (POP) are common medical problems, particularlyamong older women. In this study, we aim to explore the relationship between the neurotransmitter nNOS in the vaginal epithelium, and the occurrence of SUI and changes of nNOS levels according to menopausal status.Matherials and Methods: Fourty women were enrolled. The patients were divided into four groups according to menstruaiton status and SUI. The vagina specimens were taken during transobturator tape application...

PURPOSE: Comparison of efficiency and reliability of percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PNL) and retrograde intrarenal surgery (RIRS) in treatment of multicalyceal and multiple renal stones in the same renal unit. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Between 2011 and 2015, records of patients who underwent surgery for renal stone were retrospectively reviewed. Patients who had multiple stones located in different calices in the same renal unit were included. The patients that underwent PNL and RIRS were defined as Group I and Group II, respectively...

PURPOSE: To compare effects of transcutaneous posterior tibial nerve stimulation (TPTNS) and pelvic floor muscle training (PFMT) in women with overactive bladder syndrome (OAB). MATERIAL AND METHODS: We randomized 67 women ? 18 years with OAB to three parallel groups: group I (n = 22) received life-style recommendations (LSR) only; group II (n = 24) had LSR + PFMT and group III (n = 21) had LSR + PFMT + TPTNS. Urgency, evaluated by a 3-day voiding diary before treatment and six weeks later, was the main outcome measure...

Plasmacytoid urothelial carcinoma is a rare and aggressive form of urothelial carcinoma characterized with delayed presentation and poor prognosis. Very few cases of this carcinoma have been reported in the literature. Here, we report and discuss two cases of bladder plasmacytoid urothelial carcinoma of a 57-year-old male presentedwith renal colic, and a 33-year-old female presented with macroscopic hematuria. Pathologic examinations of thetransurethral biopsies revealed urothelial carcinoma with plasmacytoid appearance...

PURPOSE: To assess early and late-term outcomes of patients who had undergone pelvic exenteration and simultaneous fecal and urinary diversion with plain wet colostomy (PWC) or double-barrelled wet colostomy (DBWC). MATERIALS AND METHODS: The medical records of all patients who had undergone pelvic exenteration and urinary diversion between 2006 and 2017 at our hospital were reviewed retrospectively.

PURPOSE: There is a lack of reporting of the bladder cuff pathology in the literature and ongoing debate regarding the role of bladder cuff excision (BCE) in the prognosis in patients with upper tract urothelial carcinoma (UTUC). We aimed to know the risk factors, the survival, and the clinical course of such pathology. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The study was retrospective, from 1983-2013 on 305 patients who had diagnosed with UTUC. Patients were managed by radical open/ laparoscopic nephroureterectomy with bladder cuff excision...

Spontaneous Retroperitoneal hemorrhage in pregnancy is a rare condition. Renal angiomyolipoma (RA) is the most common cause of this hemorrhage. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first reported case of Wunderlich syndrome (WS) due to renal cell carcinoma (RCC) diagnosed in the second trimester of pregnancy.

PURPOSE: The objective was to compare the efficacy of 99mTc-MDP-BS, 18F-FDG-PET/CT and 18F-FCH-PET/CT in detecting bone metastases in prostate cancer patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS: 56 patients diagnosed with prostate cancer underwent 99mTc-methylendiphosphonates bone scintigraphy (99mTc-MDP-BS) and fluorine-18-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography (18F-FDG-PET/CT) or fluorine-18-fluorocholine PET/CT (18F-FCH-PET/CT) within six weeks...

We report a female patient diagnosed with retrocaval ureter (RCU) after ureteral reimplantation for vesicoureteral reflux (VUR). She was diagnosed as right grade IV VUR with breakthrough urinary tract infections, and underwent ureteral reimplantation with Cohen cross-trigonal technique. Thereafter, she developed severe right hydronephrosis associated with RCU, which was presumably due to caudal traction of right ureter at ureteral reimplantation. Sheunderwent uretero-ureterostomy anterior to the inferior vena cava, and recovered well...

PURPOSE: Insufficient alleviation of pain after percutaneous nephrolithotomy causes patient dissatisfaction and generates additional morbidity factors by preventing early mobilization. This study investigated the effects of bupivacaine infiltration with two different doses around the nephrostomy tract after percutaneous nephrolithotomy. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Patients who underwent subcostal single entrance percutaneous nephrolithotomy were randomly divided into 3 groups of 20 patients...

PURPOSE: Urethral stricture, known as a scar formation leading to urethral lumen stricture in sub-epithelial tissue, is the most common late complication of transurethral prostate resection (TURP). The aim of study is to evaluate efficacy of colchicine treatment in preventing urethral stricture recurrence in patients after internal urethrotomy, and to determine whether colchicine treatment had a sustained effect in decreasing stricture recurrences in patients with concomitant diseases...

PURPOSE: To compare the pain status and stone free rates of flexible ureterorenoscopy (F-URS) versus mini-percutaneousnephrolithotomy (mini-PNL) for the treatment of 1-to 2-cm renal stones. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This study was retrospectively designed with match paired method. Between January 2013 and December 2016, 387 patients underwent stone surgery for renal stones, 45 patients underwent FURS and 45 patients underwent mini-PNL. 90 patients were divided into two groups according to the surgical procedures...

Wang Shuaibin, Mu Haiqi, Feng Qin, Yu Haifeng
Suprapubic cystostomy is a widely employed procedure that is used to drain the bladder. Despite being a safe procedure, suprapubic cystostomy has been reported to present multiple intra- and postoperative complications. Serious and unusual complications can occur during changing of the suprapubic catheter (SPC) in patients with neuropathic bladder. In this work, we report an elderly patient with neuropathic bladder suffering from an unusual complication involving migration of the SPC into the ureter during changing of the SPC, leading to ureteric obstruction and left pyelonephritis...

PURPOSE: In this retrospective study, we aimed to investigate the prognostic effect of body mass index (BMI) in localized renal cell carcinoma (RCC) cases who underwent surgical treatment. Furthermore, the assessment of various patient and tumor characteristics and surgical methods on survival has been identified as additional targets. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Three hundred and eighty patients with localised, non-metastatic, unilateral RCC who underwent radical or partial nephrectomy in our clinic between January 2007 and December 2016 were enrolled in this study...

Malignant ureteral obstruction is usually caused by an extrinsic compression including intra-abdominal cancers. One of the treatment modalities decompressing the obstruction is applying stent to open the ureter. Metallic Stent is an effective instrument which we used for the first time in Iran in our patient who had a metastatic colon cancerwith a single kidney and we used a Novel, Double-Layered, Coated, Self-expandable Metallic Mesh Stent (Uventa Stent) to keep the ureter open. After six months of follow up with ureteroscopy, there was no obstruction any more...

PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to evaluate postacrosomal sheet WW domain binding protein (PAWP) and phospholipase C ? (PLC?) protein expression in patients with fertilization failure. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Semen samples were collected from 15 fertile men (control group) and 15 patients with previous fertilization failure following ICSI (FF group) and were analyzed according to World Health Organization (WHO) criteria. The mean percentages of PAWP and PLC? positive sperm and the total level of PAWP and PLC? proteins were assessed using immunofluorescence staining...
