Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) comprises a heterogenous group of tumors. Traditionally, papillary RCC (pRCC) is associated with a favorable outcome compared to clear cell RCC (ccRCC), while other series report equivalent or worse prognosis. In this paper we comparatively evaluate outcome of pRCC versus ccRCC in two large multi-institutional databases (cohort study), including distribution of pRCC subtypes 1 and 2. Retrospective data of 1,943 surgically treated pRCC patients from 17 European/ North American centers between 1984-2015 were compared to 5,600 ccRCC patients from a database comprising 11 European/ North American centers (1984-2011)...

REVIEW
Mohamed A Elkoushy, Sero Andonian
Patients presenting with nephrolithiasis often undergo repeated imaging studies before, during, and after management. Considering the significant risk of stone recurrence in primary stone-formers, repeated imaging studies are not uncommon. Cumulative effects of ionizing radiation exposure from various imaging studies could potentially increase the risk for developing cataracts and solid malignancies in urolithiasis patients. Therefore, practitioners planning or performing imaging studies with ionizing radiation are compelled to keep radiation exposure to humans and the environment as low as possible, thus strictly adhering to the ALARA (As Low as Reasonably Achievable) principles...

BACKGROUND: Live surgery events (LSEs) have become one of the most attended activities at surgical meetings and provide a unique opportunity for the audience to observe the decision-making process used by skilled and experienced surgeons in real time. However, there is an ongoing discussion on whether patients treated during LSE are at higher risk of complications. OBJECTIVE: To examine LSE outcomes for robot-assisted radical prostatectomy (RARP) and establish patient safety and efficacy...

INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES: Venous thromboembolism, risk of which is increased in surgical patients, is a preventable cause of morbidity and death. The primary objective of this study was to estimate the incidence of symptomatic postoperative venous thromboembolism in adults at a tertiary university hospital, overall and by surgical specialty. The secondary objective was to analyze severity of and mortality from thromboembolic events. METHODS: We performed a retrospective study to identify cases of in-hospital postoperative venous thromboembolism, encoded by the International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Revision, according to the Joint Commission International criteria...

PURPOSE: Racial disparities in complication rates have been demonstrated for a variety of surgical procedures. We hypothesized that African American (AA) patients experience higher postoperative complication rates than whites following urologic oncology procedures. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Patients in American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program who underwent radical prostatectomy (RP), radical or partial nephrectomy (RN/PN), and radical cystectomy (RC) between 2005 and 2013 were included...

OBJECTIVE: To further evaluate the academic representation of female urology residents in the United States, we reviewed abstracts from the Mid-Atlantic American Urological Association (MA-AUA) sectional meetings to determine if the recent increase in the number of female urology residents mirrored an increase in this group's abstract authorship. METHODS: Full text abstracts from the MA-AUA meetings were analyzed from 2008-2014 excluding one joint section meeting...

INTRODUCTION: Shared decision making (SDM) is widely encouraged by both the American Urological Association and Choosing Wisely for prostate cancer screening. Implementation of SDM is challenging secondary to time constraints and competing patient priorities. One strategy to mitigate the difficulties in implementing SDM is to utilize a decision aid (DA). Here we evaluate whether a DA improves a patient's prostate cancer knowledge and affects prostate-specific antigen (PSA) screening rates...

It is controversial whether African American men(AAM) with low-risk prostate cancer (PC) should be placed on active surveillance (AS). Recent literature indicates AAM diagnosed with low-risk disease have increased pathologic upgrading and disease progression. We evaluated the surgical pathology of AAM and Caucasians who underwent prostatectomy to assess the suitability of AAM for AS. We retrospectively reviewed 1,034 consecutive men who underwent open prostatectomy between 2004 and 2015; 345 Caucasians and 58 AAM met the American Urological Association criteria for low-risk PC...

INTRODUCTION: In the era of minimally invasive surgery, endoscopic and percutaneous interventions for urinary tract stones have become a mainstay, and the need for open stone surgery (OSS) has decreased. We sought to determine the contemporary incidence of OSS among urologists in the United States. METHODS: Case logs submitted for certification to the American Board of Urology from 2005 to 2015 were queried for Current Procedural Terminology codes relevant to OSS...

INTRODUCTION: Physician-industry relationships are common in the U.S. and a source of considerable public scrutiny. The Open Payments program is a public database of all physician-industry financial interactions in the U.S. administered by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. In this study we describe payments received by urologists for research and nonresearch purposes. METHODS: The number and value of payments to urologists were determined using Open Payments program data...

BACKGROUND: Racial disparities in prostate cancer treatment and outcomes are widespread and poorly understood. In the current study, the authors sought to determine whether access to care, measured across multiple dimensions, contributed to racial differences in prostate cancer. METHODS: The Philadelphia Area Prostate Cancer Access Study (P(2) Access) included 2374 men diagnosed with localized prostate cancer between 2012 and 2014. Men were surveyed to assess their experiences accessing care (response rate of 51...

BACKGROUND: Antioxidants can potentially alter the progression of lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) through anti-inflammatory mechanisms. OBJECTIVE: To determine if dietary antioxidants are associated with reduced likelihood of LUTS progression or increased likelihood of LUTS remission in untreated elderly men. DESIGN, SETTING, AND PARTICIPANTS: A prospective cohort study of 1670 US men aged 65-100 yr. OUTCOME MEASUREMENTS AND STATISTICAL ANALYSIS: Baseline variables included the American Urological Association Symptom Index, dietary intake assessed via a 69-item Block food frequency questionnaire (FFQ), demographics, lifestyle characteristics, quality of life (SF-12), and medication use...

PURPOSE: To evaluate long-term patient-reported quality of life (QOL) scores in men with prostate cancer treated at our institution with (131)Cs prostate brachytherapy. METHODS AND MATERIALS: Patients treated more than 4 years ago with (131)Cs (n=290) were asked to fill out an Expanded Prostate Cancer Index Composite (EPIC) QOL questionnaire and American Urological Association Symptom Score (AUASS) survey, before treatment and at each follow-up appointment. We compared patients' EPIC and AUA scores at baseline with scores at a last follow-up of at least 4 years after treatment using the Wilcoxon signed-rank test...

CONTEXT: The European Association of Urology Renal Cell Carcinoma Guideline Panel recently conducted a systematic review of treatment options for patients with advanced non-clear-cell renal cell carcinomas (RCCs), which showed a substantial lack of evidence for management recommendations. OBJECTIVE: To improve the outcomes of patients with rare kidney cancers (RKCs), we performed a subsequent unstructured review to determine current treatment strategies and druggable pathways, involving key stakeholders with a global perspective to generate recommendations...

CONTEXT: The incidence of urinary tract stone disease is increasing and the risk of recurrent stone formation is high. Appropriate therapeutic procedures with the aim of counteracting the progress of stone formation are highly desirable. Metabolic work-up is considered essential as a base for optimal design and follow-up of effective recurrence prevention. OBJECTIVE: To scrutinize the current literature with regard to principles of metabolic work-up for this heterogeneous group of patients...
