Objective: To evaluate the effect of vaginal transobturator tape (TOT) on female stress urinary incontinence (SUI) and sexual function. Patients and methods: In all, 145 patients with SUI underwent TOT repair using the 'outside-in' technique. All patients had been sexually active in the previous 6 months. Patients were evaluated by history, routine laboratory investigations, cough stress test, abdominopelvic ultrasonography, and full urodynamic studies. The preoperative data assessed included: age, parity, body mass index, menopausal status, and Stamey grade of SUI...

Objective: To assess the effectiveness and safety of bipolar plasma kinetic energy for en bloc enucleation of non-muscle-invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC). Patients and methods: In all, 46 patients diagnosed with suspected NMIBC were included. All patients were diagnosed using ultrasonography, computed tomography, and diagnostic cystoscopy, and then underwent bipolar plasma kinetic enucleation of bladder tumour (PKEBT). At the end of the procedure, all patients had a single-dose (40 mg in 40 mL saline) intravesical installation of mitomycin C (<6 h after bipolar PKEBT)...

Objectives: To evaluate the presence of balanitis xerotica obliterans (BXO), clinically and pathologically, in the urethra of boys with failed previous hypospadias repair and where surgical management was planned. Patients and methods: Between February 2010 and March 2015, boys with failed distal penile hypospadias repair who were planned for surgical management were evaluated for the presence of clinical and pathological evidence of BXO. Samples were obtained from the urethral plate and fossa navicularis, after obtaining informed consent and ethical approval...

Objective: To compare the outcomes of transurethral incision (TUI) and upper pole partial nephrectomy (PN) in patients with duplex system ureterocoele (DSU). Patients and methods: We retrospectively reviewed the medical charts of patients who presented with DSU in the first-year of life and were managed with either TUI or PN. Patients' demographics, ultrasonography examinations, voiding cystourethrogram studies, and dimercaptosuccinic acid scans were reviewed. Also, the postoperative vesico-ureteric reflux status and febrile urinary tract infection occurrences, and subsequent surgical interventions were identified...

Objective: To ascertain the publication trends of interventions for paediatric kidney stone disease (KSD) we conducted a systematic review of literature over the last 16 years. Patients and methods: With a rise of paediatric KSD and related interventions, a systematic review using PubMed was done over the last 16 years for all published papers on 'Paediatric stone disease intervention - ureteroscopy (URS), shockwave lithotripsy (SWL), percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL), open stone surgery, and laparoscopic stone surgery'...

Objectives: To assess treatment effectiveness and safety of bilateral same-session ureterorenoscopy (BSSU) for the management of stone disease involving the entire urinary system. Patients and methods: We reviewed the records of 64 patients who underwent BSSU for the treatment of bilateral ureteric and/or kidney stones. Size, number, location per side, and the total burden of stones were recorded. Data on stenting, lithotripsy, and stone retrieval, and details of hospital stay and operation times were investigated...

Objective: To assess the effectiveness and advantages of ultra-mini-percutaneous nephrolithotomy (UM-PCNL) versus standard PCNL (S-PCNL), as one of the most important differences between the various PCNL techniques is the size of the renal access, which contributes to the broad spectrum of complications and outcomes. Patients and methods: This clinical randomised trial was conducted in 2016. In all, 70 patients with renal or upper ureteric stones of 10-20 mm in diameter, who were candidates for PCNL, were divided equally into two groups...

OBJECTIVES: To determine the preoperative, intraoperative and postoperative risk factors that influence the development of persistent post-transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) urinary tract infection (UTI) defined as pyuria and/or bacteriuria remaining for 3 weeks after surgery. PATIENTS AND METHODS: This is a prospective study including 100 patients scheduled for TURP. Urine analysis and culture was performed immediately after catheter removal, then at 1 and 3 weeks postoperatively, and the results were correlated to various preoperative, intraoperative and postoperative potential risk factors to detect any significant relation to persistent UTI...

OBJECTIVE: To compare the effectiveness and safety of two minimally invasive methods (transrectal aspiration vs transurethral resection (TUR)/deroofing) of treating prostatic abscess. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A retrospective study was conducted, from 2007 to 2016, of patients with prostatic abscesses not responding to antibiotics and/or with large (>2 cm) or multiple abscesses. Patients were divided into two groups depending on treatment received: Group A, transrectal aspiration; and Group B, TUR/deroofing of abscess...
