OBJECTIVE: Current guidelines recommend partial nephrectomy for the management of T1a tumours. Adherent perinephric fat (APF) has been recognized as a complicating feature of such surgery. The objective of this article was to present a systematic review of the published literature investigating APF aetiology, risk factors and outcomes. MATERIALS AND METHODS: To identify relevant studies, the PubMed, MEDLINE, Web of Science and Google Scholar databases were searched from 1990 to 2017...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to retrospectively review the experience and midterm results of laparoscopic pyeloplasty (LP) in patients with previous failed open pyeloplasty in comparison to primary LP. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Thirty-two patients who had undergone previous failed open surgery for management of ureteropelvic junction obstruction (UPJO) were reviewed. The patients underwent transperitoneal dismembered LP. All operations were performed by the same laparoscopist from March 2009 to June 2013...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to evaluate clinically relevant complications within 14 days after extracorporeal shockwave lithotripsy (ESWL) in a modern setting. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Consecutive ESWL treatments between 2009 and 2015 in Ängelholm Hospital, Sweden, were analyzed retrospectively. The primary outcome was complications in patients seeking medical attention within 14 days after ESWL. Multivariable analysis was used to adjust for confounders such as diabetes, stone size and location, and presence of a urinary stent...

OBJECTIVES: To report oncological outcomes including biochemical recurrence (BR) following radical prostatectomy (RP) from a large consecutive cohort operated in an 18-year period. Additionally, an in-depth analysis of outcomes among D'Amico intermediate-risk patients is presented. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 2,091 patients with PCa who underwent RP at Department of Urology, Rigshospitalet, Copenhagen, Denmark between 1995 and 2013 were included. Univariate and multiple cause-specific Cox regression analyses for BR were applied using competing risk models...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this case-control study was to investigate the association between overactive bladder (OAB) and metabolic syndrome (MetS). The primary hypothesis was that OAB is significantly more prevalent among patients with MetS than in control participants. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A case-control study was conducted among 114 patients, with 57 patients in the MetS group and 57 in the control group. Study participants were recruited in a family medicine practice...

OBJECTIVE: Lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) are common following radical prostatectomy (RP) or intended curative radiotherapy in prostate cancer patients. One-quarter of those treated with RP experience biochemical failure and are subsequently offered salvage radiotherapy (SRT) to the prostatic bed. The aim of this study was to elucidate long-term LUTS after surgery and SRT. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Urodynamic parameters from 16 patients treated with RP and subsequent SRT in the period 2000-2010 were evaluated with uroflowmetry, filling cystometry, pressure-flow and urethral pressure profile (UPP)...

OBJECTIVE: There is a paucity of knowledge of long-term urinary morbidity in patients treated for prostate cancer (PCa) with radical prostatectomy (RP) and salvage radiotherapy (SRT). Improved long-term survival calls for heightened awareness of late effects from radiotherapy after RP. The purpose of this study was to assess late urinary morbidity and its potential impact on quality of life (QoL) in patients treated with RP plus SRT compared with patients treated with RP alone. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Long-term morbidity and QoL were evaluated using a cross-sectional design with validated questionnaires in urinary morbidity [Danish Prostatic Symptom Score (DAN-PSS)] and QoL [European Organisation for Research and Treatment of Cancer Quality of Life Questionnaire Core 30 (EORTC QLQ-C30)]...

OBJECTIVE: This study analyzes risk associations between metabolic syndrome (MetS) components and the extent and prognosis of renal cell cancer (RCC). The independent effect of each MetS component is unclear, but they may affect RCC prognosis. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The study included 13,873 RCC patients (7720 men, 6153 women) diagnosed in Finland in 1995-2012. Data on MetS components (hypertension, dyslipidemia, diabetes and obesity) were obtained as recorded diagnoses or drug purchases related to these conditions...

OBJECTIVE: Simulation-based training is well recognized in the transforming field of urological surgery; however, integration into the curriculum is often unstructured. Development of simulation-based curricula should follow a stepwise approach starting with a needs assessment. This study aimed to identify technical procedures in urology that should be included in a simulation-based curriculum for residency training. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A national needs assessment was performed using the Delphi method involving 56 experts with significant roles in the education of urologists...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this prospective open comparative study was to establish whether conventional photodynamic-guided bladder biopsies using general anaesthesia and rigid resectoscopes (inpatient) can be replaced with less traumatic flexible cystoscopy in non-sedated patients (outpatient), without compromising the diagnosis of carcinoma in situ (CIS). MATERIALS AND METHODS: Thirty-one patients were included. After BCG instillation for CIS, bladder biopsies were obtained using photodynamic-guided flexible cystoscopy...

OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to compare the effectiveness and outcomes of lingual mucosa graft (LMG) urethroplasty versus pedicled skin flap (PSF) urethroplasty in the repair of anterior urethral strictures. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A retrospective study in one urological center examined 293 male patients with anterior urethral strictures who received substitution urethroplasty from 2006 to 2015. Of these, 199 patients received PSF urethroplasty and 94 received LMG urethroplasty...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to describe and evaluate existing inflatable penile prostheses (IPPs) in an independent laboratory setting. MATERIALS AND METHODS: New IPPs were obtained from two manufacturers: American Medical Systems (AMS) and Coloplast. The AMS 700™ LGX (18 cm), CX (18 cm) and CXR (14 cm), and the Coloplast Titan(®) Touch (18 cm) and Titan Narrow (14 cm) were investigated. Internal pressure, length and girth of the cylinders were measured at 2 ml increments...

OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to evaluate the efficacy of treatment for incontinence due to neurogenic detrusor overactivity (NDO) and idiopathic detrusor overactivity (IDO) with onabotulinumtoxinA (BoNT-A) at Aarhus University Hospital, Skejby, Denmark. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The data were collected retrospectively by systematic review of the patient records from March 2003 to May 2012. Patients treated with BoNT-A over the age of 18 years were included. Treatment indication, diagnosis, adverse events, treatment interval, duration of effect and effect grade were registered...

OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to compare clinical outcome and postoperative systemic inflammatory response using C-reactive protein (CRP) levels, to quantify the degree of tissue injury in open mini-laparotomy cystectomy (OMC) versus robot-assisted laparoscopic cystectomy with extracorporeal (RALC-EUD) or intracorporeal urinary diversion (RALC-IUD). MATERIALS AND METHODS: From September 2012 to September 2015, 309 patients diagnosed with bladder cancer underwent radical cystectomy with urinary diversion...

OBJECTIVE: A thorough clinical assessment including physical examination is crucial in a diagnostic work-up, including in patients with chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CPPS). This study investigated the prevalence of pain areas and the mechanosensitivity of peripheral nerves in patients with CPPS and compared the findings with a healthy control group.
