BACKGROUND: Flexible cystoscopy has become an accepted alternative for stent retrieval. However, it is associated with higher cost. Some reports have described experiences of using rigid ureteroscope to retrieve ureteral stents. We compared rigid ureteroscopic to flexible cystoscopic retrieval of ureteral stents in a prospective and randomized clinical trial. METHODS: Three hundred patients treated with ureteral stents between July 2012 and July 2013 were accrued in this study...

Importance: Asymptomatic microscopic hematuria (AMH) is highly prevalent and may signal occult genitourinary (GU) malignant abnormality. Common diagnostic approaches differ in their costs and effectiveness in detecting cancer. Given the low prevalence of GU malignant abnormality among patients with AMH, it is important to quantify the cost implications of detecting cancer for each approach. Objective: To estimate the effectiveness, costs, and incremental cost per cancer detected (ICCD) for 4 common diagnostic approaches evaluating AMH...

Primary amyloidosis of the urinary bladder is a rare disease, with only approximately 200 cases reported in the literature. We herein present a case of amyloidosis of the urinary bladder with painful gross hematuria. Pelvic Computed Tomography showed uneven thickening of the bladder wall suspicious of neoplastic lesion. Cystoscopy and transurethral resection were performed. Congo-red staining confirmed amyloidosis it was. Postoperative recovery was good and close follow-up was recommended after discharged. Amyloidosis is usually benign, while it can masquerade as a malignancy...

BACKGROUND: Endometriosis-the ectopic implantation of endometrial-like tissue-affects 10% of female adolescents and adults. Bladder involvement, causing dysuria and hematuria, occurs in a very small minority of endometriosis patients. CASE: The patient presented at age 12 years with dysuria and pelvic pain. Laparoscopy revealed Stage I endometriosis. Postoperatively, she reported persistent dysuria and passage of tissue in her urine. Cystoscopy showed diffuse erythema; urine cytology revealed glandular and spindle cells suggestive of endometriosis...

This document focuses on the management of complications related to mesh used to correct stress urinary incontinence or pelvic organ prolapse. Persistent vaginal bleeding, vaginal discharge, or recurrent urinary tract infections after mesh placement should prompt an examination and possible further evaluation for exposure or erosion. A careful history and physical examination is essential in the diagnosis of mesh and graft complications. A clear understanding of the location and extent of mesh placement, as well as the patient's symptoms and therapy goals, are necessary to plan treatment approaches...

OBJECTIVE: Cytology is recommended as part of the follow-up of high-grade non-muscle-invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC). However, currently there are no solid guideline recommendations regarding the use of voided urine versus bladder washing for cytology as part of the diagnosis or follow-up of NMIBC. The aim of this study was to investigate whether the cytological outcome was equal regarding the two techniques. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The authors reviewed all outpatient flexible cystoscopies carried out in their department in 2013...

To address the shortcomings of cystoscopy and urine cytology for detecting and grading bladder cancer (BC), ultrahigh performance liquid chromatography (UHPLC) coupled with Q-TOF mass spectrometry in conjunction with univariate and multivariate statistical analyses was employed as an alternative method for the diagnosis of BC. A series of differential serum metabolites were further identified for low-grade(LG) and high-grade(HG) BC patients, suggesting metabolic dysfunction in malignant proliferation, immune escape, differentiation, apoptosis and invasion of cancer cells in BC patients...

OBJECTIVE: Underactive bladder is frequently encountered in elderly patients. It may result from detrusor underactivity (DU) or low detrusor contractility due to a urethral sphincter inhibitory effect. This study analyzed the video-urodynamic study (VUDS) characteristics of patients with underactive bladder in a large cohort of men with lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS). METHODS: Male patients with LUTS who had failed the initial treatment were consecutively enrolled...

BACKGROUND: Overexpression of p16(INK4a) has been identified in urothelial malignancies both cytologically and histologically. In addition, p16/Ki-67 dual labeling has been shown to identify high-grade urothelial cancer cells and some progression cases within a 12-month delay. The Paris System for Reporting Urinary Cytology (TPS) was published in late 2015. Its aim is to clarify the criteria for diagnosing or, conversely, excluding high-grade urothelial carcinoma (HGUC). METHODS: Dual labeling was performed on archived ThinPrep-based Papanicolaou slides...

REVIEW
Ngan N Lam, Krista L Lentine, Amit X Garg
Living kidney donation provides the best therapeutic outcomes for eligible patients with end-stage renal disease. To ensure suitability for living kidney donation, donor candidates undergo a thorough medical, surgical, and psychosocial evaluation by a multidisciplinary transplant assessment team. Numerous guidelines are available to assist clinicians in the process of donor evaluation and selection. These guidelines outline the minimum recommended requirements for donor screening and additional tests that are indicated when abnormalities arise; however, evidence suggests that some of these additional tests might not be required in certain donor candidates...

The mini-sling procedure is a widely used, minimally invasive treatment for stress urinary incontinence. While bladder perforation and stone formation over the mesh is not an expected complication of the mini-sling procedure, in this case, we report on the management of bladder calculi formed over the mesh, which was passed through the bladder while applying the mini-sling procedure, and was eventually removed using holmium laser. Performing cystoscopy in patients with irritative and obstructive symptoms after the sling procedure will help confirm bladder perforation, and an endoscopic approach using holmium laser is an effective treatment...

Eosinophilic cystitis is a rare inflammatory disease of the bladder whose origin, pathogenesis, and treatment are unknown. Frequency, dysuria, and hematuria are frequent symptoms. Here, we report a rare occurrence of recurrent urinary retention and repetitive catheterization. A 67-year-old male presented with acute urinary retention and intermittent gross hematuria of 2 weeks duration. Urethral catheterization followed by a trial without catheter, was successful. Complete blood count showed presence of eosinophils (eosinophilia) and computed tomography of kidneys, ureter and bladder with contrast showed thickened bladder wall and small prostate...
