No agreed recommendations exist for timing of urethral stent removal, after distal hypospadias surgery. We compared our preliminary case series with outcomes from literature: 18/44 patients were treated with catheter and 26/44 without it. The surgical outcome was comparable in the two groups. After hypospadias surgery, the main advantage of the immediate postoperative catheter removal was the shorter hospital stay without negatively affecting the care and home management.

OBJECTIVE: To report stricture characteristics, complications, and treatment outcomes among elderly men undergoing urethral reconstruction. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Retrospective review of urethroplasty cases and outcomes by a single surgeon from 2007-2014 was performed. Men were stratified by decade of life at time of surgery (<50, 50-59, 60-69, ≥70 years). Individuals with a history of hypospadias were excluded. RESULTS: Among 514 urethroplasty procedures, 184 (36%) were ≥60 years...

BACKGROUND A case report of urethral diverticulum complicating pregnancy is presented. The diagnosis and management are challenging because of the rare nature of this condition, the varied presentations and differential diagnoses, and the possibility of misdiagnosis. CASE REPORT A 25-year-old primigravida with scheduled induction of labor at 39 weeks gestation due to gestational diabetes mellitus presented for a routine antenatal appointment at 38 weeks and four days. On digital cervical examination, she was found to have a large semi-solid anterior vaginal mass, shown by trans-vaginal ultrasound to have a nearly solid appearance of a 5×7 cm mass with septation...

Urethral strictures are independent of a patient's age and can happen in every life period. They are often iatrogenic, resulting from a transurethral surgical procedure or traumatic catheterisation. Endoscopic slotting is the surgery of choice; although this method is frequently associated with recurrence. Retrograde urethrography or cystourethrography continue to play a central role in diagnostic evaluation and treatment. There is no standardised procedure regarding the surgical technique, perioperative management, and postoperative follow-up...

Knotting of feeding tubes or urinary catheters has been reported as a rare complication in paediatrics when draining the bladder. This is caused by inserting thin flexible tubes too far in, allowing it to coil. We present a case of a 70-year-old woman who was catheterised during a routine spinal surgery, and the catheter coiled and balloon failed to deflate requiring a cystostopic approach to puncture the balloon and remove it. Awareness of this complication in female catheterisation and education on length of catheter insertion is important to avoid this...

INTRODUCTION: Phalloplasty is associated with improved quality-of-life in those with penile defects, and in female-to-male transgender (transmale) patients seeking gender-confirming surgery. However, aggregate complication and outcome data is sparse. This study compares phalloplasty outcomes between transmale and cismale patients and between those with primary versus staged urethroplasty. METHODS: A comprehensive literature search of PubMed, MEDLINE, and Google Scholar databases was conducted for studies relating to phalloplasty...

OBJECTIVE: Bladder outlet obstruction (BOO) in women remains an underdiagnosed condition. Although diagnosed rarely in general urologic practice, its incidence in specialist centers has been reported to be up to 29%. In the present study we evaluated the incidence of female BOO in adult women referred for evaluation of lower urinary tract symptoms or urinary incontinence, assessing its etiology and correlating this with its clinical presentation. METHODS: The present study consisted of a retrospective review of a prospectively acquired videourodynamic database of 1142 consecutive women referred for evaluation of lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) or urinary incontinence from March 2007 to December 2012 and diagnosed with BOO...

INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVE: Hypospadias is a common congenital malformation of the male genital tract. The most frequent complication after hypospadias repair is urethrocutaneous fistula.(1) Its incidence has been reported up to 35% worldwide.(2) The diagnosis of these fistulas is sometimes challenging particularly with tiny and multiple fistulas. Usually, parents complain of urinary spraying, sprinkling, or passing a single stream of urine from the undersurface of the penis after the surgery...

BACKGROUND: Urethral stricture has a high recurrence rate. There is a common doctrine stating that "once a stricture, always a stricture". This fibrotic disease pathophysiology, pathologically characterized by excessive production, deposition and contraction of extracellular matrix is unknown. Angiotensin II type 1 (AT1) receptor primarily induces angiogenesis, cellular proliferation and inflammatory responses. AT1 receptors are also expressed in the fibroblasts of hypertrophic scars, whereas angiotensin II (AngII) regulates DNA synthesis in hypertrophic scar fibroblasts through a negative cross talk between AT1 and angiotensin II type 2 (AT2) receptors, which might contribute to the formation and maturation of human hypertrophic scars...

The fractures of the penis are rare in our context and are most often secondary to false penile fracture. A more common cause has been described in the countries of the Middle East where people interrupt the erection due to a violent bending of their penis called "Taqaandan". We here report the case of a 21-year old patient with no particular previous history, presenting to the emergency department at the Medical Center Avicenna with pain and deformation of the penis following "Taqaandan" manoeuvre. After having heard a click the patient felt pain and had violent detumescence without associated urinary problems, thus excluding urethral involvement...

CASE DESCRIPTION A 15-year-old spayed female mixed-breed dog was evaluated for a 7-week history of stranguria, pollakiuria, and intermittent urethral obstruction. CLINICAL FINDINGS On initial evaluation, the patient had persistent stranguria with lack of urine production; after multiple unsuccessful attempts to urinate, a large volume of urine was produced. Prior to voiding the large volume, the urinary bladder was not palpable during examination. Abdominal ultrasonography confirmed caudal displacement of the urinary bladder, and the urethra and trigone could not be located ultrasonographically...

OBJECTIVE: To develop a standardized PU-score (posterior urethral stenosis score), with the goal of using this scoring system as a preliminary predictor of surgical complexity and prognosis of posterior urethral stenosis. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed records of all patients who underwent posterior urethral surgery at our institution from 2013 to 2015. The PU-score is based on five components, namely etiology (1 or 2 points), location (1 to 3 points), length (1 to 3 points), urethral fistula (1 or 2 points) and posterior urethral false passage (1 point)...

OBJECTIVES: To ascertain whether a phenomenon of sling migration exists after suburethral sling placement, whether this might be responsible for suboptimal sling location and persistent incontinence, and whether a link exists between sling dislocation or migration and risk factors, such as obesity or age. METHODS: The present prospective cohort study was carried out in a group of 244 patients who underwent retropubic sling implantation. Sling location was determined by means of pelvic floor ultrasound, and calculated relative to the individual patient's urethral length measured before the procedure...

BACKGROUND: Venous thromboembolism (VTE) is common in cancer patients, but there is limited data on patients with urothelial tract tumors (UTT). We previously identified several associative factors for increased VTE rates in patients with metastatic UTT. In this study, we assessed the frequency, associative factors, and impact on survival of VTE in patients with locoregional UTT. METHODS: Patients with locoregional bladder, upper urinary tract, or urethral cancer were included in this multi-center study from 29 academic institutions...
