OBJECTIVE: Benign ureterointestinal anastomosis (BUIA) stricture is a recognized complication after open radical cystectomy. The evidence for stricture rates following robot-assisted radical cystectomy (RARC) is limited. This article reports stricture rates from a single high-volume RARC centre. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Between December 2003 and December 2015, 371 patients underwent RARC with a totally intracorporeal urinary diversion. All patients received a ureteric anastomosis utilizing the 'Wallace plate' with a running suture technique...

INTRODUCTION: Apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) values on multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging (mpMRI) have been reported to correlate with high-Gleason score (GS) prostate cancer. However, the relative ADC values between tumor lesions and normal tissue have been suggested as more suitable than the absolute ADC values for evaluation of diffusion abnormalities, because absolute ADC values are susceptible to differences in scanners or scanner settings. The present study evaluated the usefulness of the relative assessment of ADC values between tumor lesions and normal tissue on preoperative mpMRI for the prediction of high-risk prostate cancer on radical prostatectomy specimens...

OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to validate a new method for outpatient diode laser ablation of bladder tumors without sedation or pain control. METHODS: Twenty-one patients with stage Ta low-grade intermediate-risk bladder tumors underwent photodynamic-guided laser ablation of their bladder tumors and 1 month later follow-up cystoscopy with photodynamic and IMAGE1 S™-guided biopsies. Pain was measured using a visual analog scale (range 0-10). Symptoms and worries about the future disease course were calculated using the Quality of Life Questionnaire for Non-Muscle-Invasive Bladder Cancer (range 0-100, high scores indicating worse symptoms or worry)...

OBJECTIVE: Radical prostatectomy is associated with complications including urinary incontinence. A significant association between specific features of the vesicourethral anastomosis and urinary incontinence after radical prostatectomy has been demonstrated. The aim of this study was to identify the most useful predictor of postoperative urinary incontinence after robot-assisted laparoscopic radical prostatectomy (RALP) according to the features of the vesicourethral anastomosis as determined by postoperative cystography...

There is evidence that α-adrenoceptor (α-AR) antagonists facilitate the passage of ureteric stones, but the mechanism behind this effect has not been established. If one accepts that it is the friction between a ureteral stone and the mucosa that hampers the passage of the stone, and that the passage traumatizes the mucosa, the aim of treatment must be to reduce this friction. Elevated pressure above an obstructing stone results in an increase in tension in the wall of the upper urinary tract, including the tension at stone level, which causes an increase in friction and ureteric colic...

OBJECTIVE: The treatment of bladder diverticula consists of diverticulectomy, mainly by a laparoscopic approach or transurethral resection of the diverticular neck and fulguration of the mucosa. The endoscopic approach is generally dedicated to small diverticula. The aim of this study was to compare laparoscopic diverticulectomy versus endoscopic fulguration for bladder diverticula larger than 4 cm. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A retrospective review of the medical records of consecutive patients undergoing endoscopic or laparoscopic treatment for bladder diverticula larger than 4 cm at two tertiary hospitals was performed...
