Background/Objective: A post-bladder tumor resection dose of MMC can reduce non-invasive papillary (pTa) bladder cancer recurrences by up to 40%; this treatment is recommended in both the AUA and EUA non-muscle-invasive bladder cancer guidelines. A common complication of this treatment is eosinophilic cystitis. Symptoms range from mild urinary frequency and urgency to debilitating pain and dysuria. Currently, there is no established treatment algorithm for MMC-induced cystitis. Methods: Members of the Urologic Surgery Quality Collaborative (USQC), a group composed of over 160 private and academic urologists, met to discuss the management of patients with cystitis following MMC therapy...

INTRODUCTION: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the study habits of Canadian urology residents throughout their residency training. METHODS: A survey was administered to all final-year Canadian urology residents over a two-year period. Sixty-seven respondents answered a survey consisting of 54 questions scored on a 10-point Likert score. The survey addressed study habits throughout training, motivations for studying, and preferred resources used. RESULTS: Dedication to studying was directly correlated with proximity to the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada (RCPSC) exam...

OBJECTIVE: To assess the mid- to long-term placebo effect of medical and instrumental management of male lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS). This is - generally - a long-term treatment strategy. Therefore, knowledge on the mid- to long-term placebo effect is of considerable interest. The paucity of data on this topic prompted us to investigate this issue in a meta-analysis. METHODS: All randomized controlled trials (RCTs) with the indication BPH/LUTS containing a placebo- or sham treatment arm and with a follow-up of 12 months were eligible...

PURPOSE: This AUA Guideline focuses on evaluation/counseling and management of adult patients with clinically-localized renal masses suspicious for cancer, including solid-enhancing tumors and Bosniak 3/4 complex-cystic lesions. MATERIALS/METHODS: Systematic review utilized research from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) and additional supplementation by the authors and consultant methodologists. Evidence-based statements were based on body of evidence strength Grade A/B/C (Strong/Moderate/Conditional Recommendations, respectively) with additional statements presented as Clinical Principles or Expert Opinions...

ALKBH1 is a 2-oxoglutarate- and Fe2+-dependent dioxygenase responsible for multiple cellular functions. Here, we show that ALKBH1 is involved in biogenesis of 5-hydroxymethyl-2΄-O-methylcytidine (hm5Cm) and 5-formyl-2΄-O-methylcytidine (f5Cm) at the first position (position 34) of anticodon in cytoplasmic tRNALeu, as well as f5C at the same position in mitochondrial tRNAMet. Because f5C34 of mitochondrial tRNAMet is essential for translation of AUA, a non-universal codon in mammalian mitochondria, ALKBH1-knockout cells exhibited a strong reduction in mitochondrial translation and reduced respiratory complex activities, indicating that f5C34 formation mediated by ALKBH1 is required for efficient mitochondrial functions...

PURPOSE: To develop a method of assessing lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) regardless of literacy/numeracy. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We convened focus groups and developed a questionnaire based on four identified domains of urinary function: Frequency, Incontinence (Leakage), Nocturia (Overnight voiding), and Weak stream (FLOW). We pilot tested the novel questionnaire in 64 men and performed quantitative analysis to determine internal consistency. Criterion validity was established via direct comparison to the American Urological Association Symptom Score (AUA-SS) in a larger cohort of 161 men...

BACKGROUND: The purpose of the study was to compare utilization and predictors of partial nephrectomy (PN) in the pre- and post-guideline eras. MATERIALS AND METHODS: American Board of Urology certification/recertification operative logs were reviewed from 2003 to 2014. Nephrectomy cases were extracted using Current Procedural Terminology codes. The cases were then stratified according to pre-guidelines (2003-October 2009) and post-guidelines (November 2009-2014)...

Urolithiasis is one of the commonest afflictions of the urinary tract. Stones are of various chemical compositions, some share some common etiology; but most are specific to the structure and composition of stone. In view of highly recurrent nature of this condition, it is logical to have strategies for prevention. However, due to multiple factors most patients receive no or fragmented information on prevention. The current controversy is to the extent of metabolic workup in adult first time stone former. This requires longitudinal studies to show benefit in prevention strategies...

INTRODUCTION: While continuous antibiotic prophylaxis (CAP) is currently recommended to prevent urinary tract infections (UTIs) in infants with prenatal hydronephrosis (HN), this recommendation is not evidence-based. The objective of this study was to systematically determine whether CAP reduces UTIs in the HN population. METHODS: Applicable trials were identified through an electronic search of MEDLINE (1946-2015), EMBASE (1980-2016), CINAHL (1982-2016), and CENTRAL (1993-2016) and through a hand search of American Urological Association (AUA) (2012-2015) and European Society for Pediatric Urology (ESPU) (2012-2015) abstracts, as well as reference lists of included trials...

Human mitochondria contain their own genome, which uses an unconventional genetic code. In addition to the standard AUG methionine codon, the single mitochondrial tRNA Methionine (mt-tRNAMet) also recognises AUA during translation initiation and elongation. Post-transcriptional modifications of tRNAs are important for structure, stability, correct folding and aminoacylation as well as decoding. The unique 5-formylcytosine (f5C) modification of position 34 in mt-tRNAMet has been long postulated to be crucial for decoding of unconventional methionine codons and efficient mitochondrial translation...

Expert panels of AUA and EAU defined highly effective approaches to surgical treatment of ureterolithiasis and recommended extracorporeal and contact lithotripsy as the main options. Therapeutic strategy for ureteral stones measuring less than 10 mm is clearly defined and supported by the Russian Society of Urology. At the same time, the views of researchers on the management of large ureteral stones vary. This literature review provides information on the results of extracorporeal shock-wave lithotripsy and contact ureterolithotripsy of large stones located in various parts of the ureter...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the effects of tribochemical silica coating and different 10-methacryloyloxydecyl dihydrogen phosphate (MDP)-containing primers on the shear bond strength (SBS) of orthodontic metal brackets to yttrium-stabilized tetragonal zirconia polycrystal (Y-TZP) surfaces. MATERIALS AND METHODS: One hundred ninety polished Y-TZP specimens were randomly assigned to 19 groups (n = 10): 30 specimens were used for surface analyses after polishing with 600-grit silicon carbide paper, airborneparticle abrasion with 50-μm alumina (A), or tribochemical silica coating (CoJet [C]); 160 specimens were used in SBS testing of orthodontic metal brackets to Y-TZP after alumina airborne-particle abrasion or tribochemical silica coating and application of either ESPE-Sil (S) (ASn, ASa, CSn, CSa), Alloy Primer (AP) (AAPn, AAPa, CAPn, CAPa), Clearfil Ceramic Primer (CP) (ACPn, ACPa, CCPn, CCPa), or Scotchbond Universal (U) (AUn, AUa, CUn, CUa) and either stored in water for 24 h (non-aged, n) or thermocycled 5000 times (aged, a)...
