OBJECTIVES: There is an increasing emphasis on early identification and treatment of ankylosing spondylitis (AS) of which the hallmark is sacroiliitis. Patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) are at increased risk of AS and often receive CT scans of their abdomen affording clinicians the opportunity to determine the presence of sacroiliitis. Previous studies using CT have relied only on radiologist's gestalt or a non-validated adaptation of the mNY criteria. Our aim is to assess the prevalence of sacroiliitis in IBD using a validated screening tool and to determine how frequently these patients are referred for rheumatologic evaluation...

BACKGROUND: Geographic access-the travel burden required to reach medical care-is an important aspect of care. Studies, which typically rely on geographic information system (GIS) calculated travel times, have found some evidence of racial disparities in spatial access to care. However, the validity of these studies depends on the accuracy of travel times by patient race. OBJECTIVES: To determine if there are racial differences when comparing patient-reported and GIS-calculated travel times...

INTRODUCTION: Bladder and bowel dysfunction (BBD) are common problems in children presenting for pediatric urology referral. Psychiatric issues may be present in these children, making their treatment difficult. In 2013, the University of Iowa Voiding Improvement Partnership (VIP) Clinic was established for the treatment of these patients. STUDY OBJECTIVE: This study sought to evaluate early experience with this specialized clinic, to determine the pre-existing urologic and psychologic conditions seen in these clinic patients, and to evaluate the clinical outcomes after VIP treatment...

PURPOSE: Lymphadenectomy (LND) is a well-established practice in many urologic malignancies; however, its role in renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is less clear. Our primary objective was to determine whether LND impacted survival in patients with fully resected high-risk RCC. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Patients with fully resected high-risk, non-metastatic RCC were randomized to adjuvant sorafenib, sunitinib, or placebo in the Adjuvant Sorafenib and Sunitinib for Unfavorable Renal Carcinoma (ASSURE) trial...

Recommendations for the treatment of lower non-catheter-related urinary tract infection (UTI) in men are rarely evidence-based. Their management requires the localization of the site of infection, whether it be the urethra, bladder or prostate, and includes antibiotic therapy and in most cases urological assessment. They are often associated with urinary tract procedures or anatomical or functional abnormalities. Nearly 80 % of male UTIs are caused by Enterobacteriaceae. The prevalence of broad-spectrum beta-lactamase-producing strains (ESBL) and quinolone-resistant strains is increasing...

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...

REVIEW
Nathan R Starke, Raymond A Costabile
Chronic idiopathic orchialgia is a urologic disease process that is as frustrating as it is common. While no consensus exists on management for otherwise-unexplained testicular pain, most providers would agree that once other treatable organic causes are ruled out, initial management should be symptom focused, and should be medical rather than surgical. This chapter presents a review of the evidence available for a variety of pharmacotherapies commonly employed in the treatment of idiopathic chronic orchialgia...

John T Sigalos, Alexander W Pastuszak
Chronic orchialgia is a vexing condition defined as chronic or intermittent scrotal pain lasting at least three months that significantly interferes with daily activities. There are currently no guidelines regarding the diagnosis and management of this condition despite it being the cause of 2.5-4.8% of urologic clinic visits. Men often present with chronic orchialgia in their mid to late 30s, although the condition can present at any age. A broad differential diagnosis of chronic orchialgia includes epididymitis, testicular torsion, tumors, obstruction, varicocele, epididymal cysts, hydrocele, iatrogenic injury following vasectomy or hernia repair, and referred pain from a variety of sources including mid-ureteral stone, indirect inguinal hernia, aortic or common iliac artery aneurysms, lower back disorders, interstitial cystitis, and nerve entrapment due to perineural fibrosis; approximately 25-50% of chronic orchialgia is idiopathic in nature...

Fei Sun, Claudia Báez-Díaz, Francisco Miguel Sánchez-Margallo
The high prevalence of prostate cancer (PCa) in elderly men and technical advances in early detection of localized PCa have led to continued efforts to develop new therapeutic options of minimally invasive nature in current urologic oncology community. Increasing newly emerging therapies are undergoing preclinical tests on the technical feasibility, efficacy and safety in animal experiments. The dog is an ideal large animal because of its similar anatomy to human and the capability allowing the use of the same medical devices applied in future clinical trials...

AIMS: The standard sensor for abdominal pressure (Pabd) measurement in urodynamics (UD) is a rectal sensor. In patients where the rectum is not available due to prior surgery or when external anal sphincter (EAS) tone is poor, rectal sensor may slip, making Pabd recording unreliable. Vaginal Pabd measurement and wireless vaginal sensors have been tried. We present our preliminary series of a novel nasogastric tube (NG) sensor for Pabd measurement. METHODS: We identified patients undergoing UD with a NG Pabd sensor from a prospectively maintained UD database of a tertiary care urological center between July 2013 and December 2016...

BACKGROUND: Smoking is a risk factor for developing bladder cancer (BCa). Even though continued exposure after diagnosis may adversely affect prognosis, patients may be reluctant to disclose to their physicians that they are currently smoking, leading to inaccurate reporting of exposure and missed opportunities to deliver smoking-cessation advice and treatment in the context of cancer care. OBJECTIVE: We examined the extent of misclassification of recent smoking exposure among patients undergoing BCa surveillance...
