Ahmed Ibrahim, Daniel Wollin, Glenn Preminger, Sero Andonian
According to the latest American and European Urological Association guidelines, percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PNL) is the current gold standard treatment for patients presenting with symptomatic large or complex renal stones ≥2 cm. This review chapter and accompanying videos will review the latest literature on indications, preoperative preparations, different patient positions, in addition to step by step explanations for the technique of PNL. Postoperative care and troubleshooting tips are provided. Furthermore, latest reported outcomes are reviewed...

OBJECTIVE: To develop a novel tool to increase the number of prostate cancer (PCa) patients eligible for active surveillance (AS) without increasing the risk of unfavourable pathologic features (i.e., misclassification) at radical prostatectomy (RP). MATERIALS AND METHODS: Overall, 16,049 patients with low- or intermediate risk PCa treated with RP were identified. Misclassification was defined as non-organ confined or grade group ≥3 disease at RP. The coefficients of a logistic regression model predicting misclassification were used to develop a risk score...

PURPOSE: Patients with localised renal cell carcinoma (RCC) receiving curative surgery, either radical or partial nephrectomy, have been shown in contemporary studies to develop recurrence within 5 years in 20-30% of case. Therefore, post-operative follow-up (FU) imaging plays a crucial role in detecting recurrent or metastatic disease. A number of prognostic scores have been developed to predict risk of recurrence. This review summarises the current knowledge on established FU protocols and their limitations...

INTRODUCTION: We evaluated the authorship count of all original research and review articles published in prominent Urology journals to trend patterns in authorship over the last decade. Secondarily, we evaluated bibliometric assessments and sought to understand whether authorship count was associated with citation rate and each article's field-normalized measure of impact. METHODS: Information on authorship count, date of publication, study type, journal of publication, citation rate, and relative citation ratio (RCR) was collected for all original research and review articles published in European Urology, Journal of Urology, Urology , and British Journal of Urology International between 2006 and 2016...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Kidney stone disease has become an important worldwide socioeconomic issue. However, metaphylaxis fails due to low compliance rates. Therefore, we developed a mobile app (StoneMD: Kidney Stones) for patients with kidney stones to increase compliance in stone metaphylaxis. MATERIALS AND METHODS: To identify the most appropriate design of the app, we searched through the App Store and the Google Play Store and integrated the clinical recommendations of the European Association of Urology (EAU) and the American Urological Association (AUA)...

CONTEXT: Management of men with penile squamous cell carcinoma (PSCC) who have high-risk features following radical inguinal lymphadenectomy (ILND) remains controversial. European Association of Urology guidelines state that adjuvant inguinal radiotherapy (AIRT) is "not generally recommended". Despite this, many centres continue to offer AIRT to a subset of men. OBJECTIVE: To undertake a systematic review of the evidence on AIRT in node-positive men with PSCC...

Background: Following radical nephro-ureterectomy for urothelial carcinoma of the upper urinary tract (UUT), the reported bladder recurrence rate of urothelial carcinoma is 22-47%. A single intravesical instillation of chemotherapy within 10 days following nephro-ureterectomy has the potential to decrease the risk of a bladder recurrence significantly. Despite recommendation by the European Association of Urology guideline to administer a single instillation postoperatively, the compliance rate is low because the risk of extravasation of chemotherapy...

BACKGROUND: The intravesical administration of hazardous drug products is a standard practice in the urology setting, which potentially exposing medical personnel to these drug products. It was deemed necessary to have a consensus document among the scientific societies involved (the Spanish Urological Association and the Spanish Society of Hospital Pharmacy) that collects the best available evidence on the safest handling possible of dangerous drug products in the setting of urology departments...

BACKGROUND: The randomized controlled PSAInForm study aims to investigate the effects of a computer-based decision aid which informs men in the age group 55-69 years about advantages and disadvantages of PSA testing. In preparation for the study, the current PSA testing practice in the Münster district was assessed. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The frequencies of early detection examinations, medically indicated PSA tests, and prostate biopsies in the Münster district were determined, using aggregated data from the regional association of Statutory Health Insurance (SHI) Physicians in Westfalen-Lippe...

AIMS: Healthcare guidelines are an important vehicle in establishing up-to-date evidence based medicine (EBM) in clinical practice. Due to varying development processes, clinical guidelines created by different institutions can often contain contrasting recommendations. This can have implications for optimal and standardized patient care across management settings. METHODS: The similarities and differences of treatment recommendations made in the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE), The European Association of Urology (EAU), and the International Consultation on Continence (ICI) guidelines for neurogenic lower urinary tract dysfunction (NLUTD) were assessed...

CONTEXT: To date, established risk factors for prostate cancer (PCa) are limited to age, race, family history, and certain genetic polymorphisms. Despite great research efforts, available evidence on potentially modifiable risk factors is conflicting. Moreover, most studies on PCa risk factors did not consider the impact of prostate-specific antigen (PSA) testing on PCa diagnosis. OBJECTIVE: To provide a detailed overview of the latest evidence on the role of metabolic diseases, drugs, and dietary factors for risk of PCa incidence, recurrence, and survival in men exposed to PSA testing...

PURPOSE: In order to more accurately examine the rate of urinary tract infection following onabotulinumtoxinA injection of the bladder, we systematically reviewed the literature for definitions of urinary tract infection utilized in series that reported on onabotulinumtoxinA injections and assessed them for consistency with guideline statements defining urinary tract infections.

PURPOSE: Guidelines and recommendations become increasingly important in clinical urologic practice. This study aims to inform clinicians using guidelines on how to evaluate the quality of the methodology and transparency of these documents. METHODS: The guidelines on management of castration-resistant prostate cancer of the American Urology Association, European Association of Urology, National Comprehensive Cancer Network, National Institute for Health and Care Excellence, European Society of Medical Oncology were reviewed using the AGREE-II tool (Appraisal of Guidelines for Research and Evaluation)...

Seth A Strope
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Guidelines have been developed to assist physicians in the diagnosis and management of patients with lower urinary tract symptoms. These guidelines vary in the level of evidence used and the strength of their recommendations. With variations in guidelines, multiple variations in clinical practice may also been seen. RECENT FINDINGS: Although examinations of physician compliance with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) guidelines date back to the 1980s, researchers have become more interested in closer examination of guideline compliance...

PURPOSE: We examined the incidence of pulmonary thromboembolism (PE) and deep venous thromboembolism (DVT) in patients who underwent urologic tumor surgery. The aim of this study was to investigate the postoperative D-dimer for prediction of venous thromboembolism events (VTE), as well as to identify other risk factors associated with the occurrence of thromboembolisms. PATIENTS AND METHODS: This was a prospective observational cohort study, which included 1,269 patients who underwent major urologic tumor surgery, from August 2015 to February 2017, at our center...

CONTEXT: Smoking, sexual activity, and physical activity (PA) are discussed as modifiable lifestyle factors associated with prostate cancer (PCa) development and progression. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the available evidence concerning the association of smoking, sexual activity, and sports and exercise on PCa risk, treatment outcome, progression, and cancer-specific mortality.
