INTRODUCTION: Prevention of urolithiasis occurrence and recurrence is important issue, due to one affects mainly people of the working age and often leads to disability. AIM: To study the impact of harmful habits like smoking, alcohol drinking, and hypodynamics on the risk of urolithiasis occurrence and recurrence. MATERIALS AND METHODS: It was conducted a retrospective epidemiological study of a representative sample of 443 patients with urolithiasis (basic group, 403 - of them without recurrences and 40 - with recurrences) and 203 patients without urolithiasis - control group, at discharge them from urologic in-patient departments of health care facilities of Ivano-Frankivsk region...

BACKGROUND: Increasing evidence suggests that aberrant microRNAs expressions are significantly associated with cancer progression. Previous studies have reported that the relative expression of miR-1 is significantly downregulated in recurrent prostate cancer (PCa) samples when compared with nonrecurrent PCa tissues. However, whether miR-1 can serve as a novel predictive biomarker for PCa recurrence still remains unclear. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The patients with clinically localized PCa who underwent radical prostatectomy by the same medical team at the Department of Urology, Ningbo No...

OBJECTIVE: This multicenter study investigated whether the use of narrow-band imaging (NBI) in flexible cystoscopy could improve diagnostics to a degree where clinical management was relevantly changed. MATERIALS AND METHODS: From May 2014 to June 2015, 955 patients were enrolled at three Danish urological departments. Patients had either hematuria (n = 483) or known recurrent non-muscle-invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC) (n = 472). High-definition (HD) cystoscopy was performed in white light (WL) and a preliminary clinical decision was made...

REVIEW
Luis Guerra, Michael Leonard
Infants, children, and adolescents with inguinoscrotal pathology comprise a significant proportion of emergency department and outpatient visits. Visits to the emergency department primarily comprise individuals presenting with scrotal pain due to testicular torsion or torsion of the testicular appendages. At such time, immediate urological consultation is sought. Outpatient visits comprise those individuals with undescended testes, hydroceles, and varicoceles. Rare, but important problems, such as pediatric testicular tumours, may also present in the office setting...

OBJECTIVES: Currently, the French High Authority for Health does not recommend mass screening for prostate cancer (PCa), due to the risk of over-treatment, notably of low risk patients. Our study is intended to reflect the therapeutic attitudes for the management of patients classified as low risk of progression in French clinical centers. METHODS: For all positive prostate biopsies performed during 2012 and 2013 in five French departments of urology, clinicopathological characteristics required to calculate the d'Amico risk group and the Cancer of the Prostate Risk Assessment (CAPRA) score were filled...

Genitourinary tract is the second most common site where extrapulmonary tuberculosis (TB) occurs. Genitourinary TB is notable for a latent clinical course and difficult diagnosis. The paper presents clinical observations of two patients treated in a urology department of a general public hospital. One of them was diagnosed with tuberculosis of the prostate, MTB+. In the other, TB of the prostate was suspected based on pathologic assessment of the surgical specimen after surgery for prostate cancer.

This paper proposes health care recommendations for men with chronic prostatitis (CP) taking into account etiopathogenesis and the clinical presentation of the disease. The proposal is based on the experience of federal and regional clinics of urology and gynecology, respective departments for postgraduate education and on the analysis of scientific literature. It is shown that managing patients with CP requires consideration of factors beyond the traditional practice of urology. The author validates the need to use the modern prostatitis classification UPOINT instead of the traditional NIH NIDDK (1995) to increase the effectiveness of treatment...

Background: Malnutrition and systemic inflammatory response are frequently associated with prognosis in patients with several types of cancer, including renal cell carcinoma (RCC). The study is aimed to investigate the ability of preoperative serum albumin to globulin ratio (AGR) to predict the long-term mortality of RCC patients. Methods: The study is a retrospective study of an unselected cohort of 895 RCC patients who underwent a curative radical or partial nephrectomy at the Department of Urology in the Sun Yat-Sen University Cancer Center between January 2000 and December 2012 and had documented preoperative serum total protein and albumin (ALB) levels...

BACKGROUND: Pathologic examinations play an important role in medical services. Until recently, the overall status of pathologic examinations in Korea has not been identified. I conducted a nationwide survey of pathologic examination status using the insurance reimbursements (IRs) dataset from the Health Insurance Review and Assessment Service (HIRA). The aims of this study were to estimate current pathologic examination status in Korea and to provide information for future resource arrangement in the pathology area...
