A 71-year-old female presented with melena and anemia. She had a past medical history of renal cell carcinoma diagnosed six years earlier and treated with left nephrectomy. Gastroscopy and colonoscopy showed no abnormalities. Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is the third commonest urological malignancy, and approximately 25-50% of patients develop metastatic disease after surgery of the primary tumor. The most common sites of metastasis involve lung, lymph nodes, liver, bone and adrenal glands.

INTRODUCTION: The knowledge of detailed calyceal anatomy is essential for performing urologic procedures such as percutaneous nephrolithotomy, percutaneous nephrostomy, flexible ureterorenoscopy, endopyelotomy, and retrograde renal surgery. This study was performed to analyze the various patterns of pelvicalyceal system in the South Indian population, and compare these with previously published studies in different populations.

We describe an observational survey of diagnostic pathways in 104 patients attending four specialist allergy clinics in the UK following perioperative hypersensitivity reactions to chlorhexidine reactions. The majority were life threatening. Men undergoing urological or cardiothoracic surgery predominated. Skin prick testing and sIgE testing were the most common tests used for diagnosis. Fifty-three % of diagnoses were made on the basis of a single positive test. Where multiple tests were performed the sensitivity of intradermal, basophil activation and skin prick testing was 68% (50-86%), 50% (10-90%) and 35% (17-55%) respectively...

AIMS: The study was conducted to evaluate the incidence of urologic injuries during gynecologic surgery, study the management and outcome of such injuries, and identify risk factors that may be associated with urologic injuries. METHODS: A case-control study was conducted in patients who underwent gynecologic surgery from 2005 to 2014 in the university hospital. The study cases referred to patients who had urologic injury during gynecologic surgery and the control cases referred to patients who had gynecologic surgery matching the same period, type of procedure, and etiological disease leading to surgery...

Urologic pathology is evolving rapidly. Emerging trends include the expanded diagnostic utility of biomarkers and molecular testing, as well as adapting to the plethora of technical advances occurring in genitourinary oncology, surgical practice, and imaging. We illustrate those trends by highlighting our approach to the diagnostic workup of a few selected disease entities that pathologists may encounter, including newly recognized subtypes of renal cell carcinoma, pheochromocytoma, and prostate cancer, some of which harbor a distinctive chromosomal translocation, gene loss, or mutation...

Cells obtained from a patient's biopsy have to be expanded after extraction to produce autologous tissues, but standard cell culture conditions often limit their growth or lifespan and could induce early and inadequate cell differentiation. Moreover, it has previously been reported that the air-liquid interface, that induces maturation of the urothelium, stimulated inadequate differentiation associated with aberrant keratin-14 expression. The aim of this study was to test the benefits of hypoxia during expansion of urothelial cells and maturation of the bladder epithelium in the context of tissue engineering...

: 273 Background: Prostate cancer (PCa) is the leading cancer for men in the United States (US) and identified by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) as one of the top 20 high-impact Medicare conditions experienced by beneficiaries. Thus, there is increasing focus by stakeholders to measure and achieve high-value, quality care in PCa. However, quality measurement is particularly difficult in oncology. Our aim was to assess the current landscape of PCa quality measures (QMs) in the US...

BACKGROUND: The inpatient morbidity and mortality of acute kidney injury (AKI) vary considerably in different clinical units, yet studies to compare the difference remain limited. METHODS: We compared the clinical characteristics of AKI in Intensive Care Unit (ICU), medical and surgical departments by using the data derived from the 2013 nationwide cross-sectional survey of AKI in China to capture variations among different clinical departments in recognition, management, and outcomes of AKI...

Genitourinary system injuries generally occur due to blunt and penetrating trauma. Approximately 10% of all injuries encountered in the emergency department are related to the genitourinary system. Male genital trauma is a urological emergency because of the high risk of infection and the priority of protecting the sexual, endocrine, and reproductive functions. Blunt injuries to the penis are more often seen due to the mobility and localization of the penis than due to penetrating injuries caused by firearms or cutting instruments...

BACKGROUND: Surgery has a rich and colourful history dating as far back as, at least, the Neolithic period. There have been many advances in knowledge and technology, as well as changes to working conditions and public perception and expectations. The urology training programme is jointly managed by the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons and the Urological Society of Australia and New Zealand. Urological training in Australia and New Zealand has undergone a number of changes over the years...

INTRODUCTION: Laparoendoscopic single-site surgery is a recently innovated urologic surgical procedure. Transumbilical laparoendoscopic single-site adrenalectomy (LESS-A) is technically safe and feasible in patients with benign adrenal tumors. To improve patient counseling and informed consent, we evaluated patient-reported postoperative pain, body image, and cosmetic satisfaction after transumbilical LESS-A. METHODS: We reviewed 24 patients who underwent transumbilical LESS-A and assessed their operative and esthetic outcomes and incisional pain...

OBJECTIVES: To predict likelihood of spontaneous resolution during fetal life and postnatal outcome of fetal megacystis, diagnosed in all trimesters in pregnancy. METHODS: This was a national retrospective cohort study. Fetal megacystis was defined in the first trimester as a longitudinal bladder diameter (LBD) ≥ 7 mm, and in the 2(nd) and 3(rd) trimester as an enlarged bladder failing to empty during the entire extended ultrasound (US) examination. LBD and GA at resolution were investigated as of likelihood of resolution and of postnatal outcome, respectively...

A 76-year-old man underwent radical surgery for Stage IV a hilar cholangiocarcinoma in July 2009, and had been followed at an outpatient clinic. Although no apparent recurrent lesion was detected by PET/CT examination, an elevated CA19-9 level was found in January 2014. He was then started on the oral anticancer drug S-1. However, his CA19-9 level increased gradually. The patient presented to a urological department with a complaint of macrohematuria in May 2015. Detailed examination revealed a mass lesion at the top of the urinary bladder, which was suspected to be peritoneal dissemination of the known hilar cholangiocarcinoma invading the urinary bladder wall...

OBJECTIVE: To assess changes in hygiene, urination and sexual activity after surgery for adult, acquired buried penis repair. MATERIALS/METHODS: The study included men that underwent buried penis repair from 2011 to 2015. Patients were asked pre, post op questions on hygiene, urinary difficulties, sexual difficulties and difficulties with activities of daily living (modified PBSQol questionnaire). Post-operative satisfaction was assessed at a minimum of 6 month...
