Epididymo-orchitis is a common urological condition in men of all ages, causing a unilateral or bilateral swelling of the epididymis and/or testis. It is frequently caused by sexually transmitted infections, Chlamydia trachomatis and Neisseria gonorrheae, as well as common enteric organisms implicated in urinary tract infections. Men over 35 years old may develop epididymo-orchitis associated with enteric organisms, often associated with functional bladder outlet problems such as benign prostatic hyperplasia or urethral stricture disease...

Pelvic fracture urethral distraction defect (PFUDD) seriously affects the quality of life of patients. At present, there are few effective drug treatments available for PFUDD‑induced urethral stricture, which is associated with fibrosis and scar formation in urethra lumen. Emerging evidence suggests that microRNAs (miRNAs/miRs) may be involved in the regulation of fibrosis, and analysis of miRNA expression profiles in urethral scar and normal urethra tissues may therefore benefit the discovery of novel treatments for urethral stricture with micro invasive procedures...

BACKGROUND: To compare the results of urethral anastomosis to a button hole and to the lowest part of the anterior suture line during orthotopic neobladder substitution. METHODS: From January 2012 to December 2015, 87 consecutive male patients with invasive bladder cancer underwent radical cystectomy and Hautmann ileal neobladder. Patients were randomly divided into two groups; group I (44 patients), the outlet was created as a button-hole at the most dependent part of the pouch, group II (43 patients), the lowest 1 cm of the anterior suture line of the pouch was left open as an outlet...

Introduction: The optimal management strategy for urethral injuries remains controversial. Suprapubic cystostomy followed by delayed urethral reconstruction or immediate primary urethral injury repair is associated with high complication rate. Early endoscopic realignment for urethral injuries provides early definitive procedure with low complications and avoids the need for further urethral reconstruction. Materials and Methods: Between April 2007 and March 2016, 27 patients with traumatic posterior urethral disruptions were reviewed...

INTRODUCTION: and Objective: Anxiety and depression (AD) in patients with urethral stricture disease (USD) and the impact of urethroplasty on mental health has never been explored. We hypothesized that patients with USD will have higher than normal AD levels and urethroplasty would improve mental health. METHODS: Patients undergoing anterior urethroplasty were retrospectively reviewed from a multi-institutional reconstructive urology database. Pre- and postoperative evaluation of AD and overall health was recorded using the validated EQ-5D-3L Questionnaire, while sexual function was evaluated with the International Index of Erectile Function (IIEF) and Men's Sexual Health Questionnaire (MSHQ)...

Penile and urethral reconstructive surgical procedures are used to treat a variety of urologic diagnoses. Urethral stricture disease can lead to progressive lower urinary tract symptoms and may require multiple surgical procedures to improve patient's symptoms. Male stress urinary incontinence is associated with intrinsic sphincter deficiency oftentimes associated with radical prostatectomy. Men suffering from urethral stricture disease and stress urinary incontinence should be referred to a urologist because multiple treatment options exist to improve their quality of life...

The usage of laser in medicine is not recent, and its history in urology goes back to 40 years ago. For the last 2 decades, common uses of laser have been treatments of subjects with urolithiasis, bladder tumors, benign prostatic enlargement, lesions of the genitalia and urinary tract strictures. To evaluate laser application in urology in Iran, we reviewed all of the Iranian literature on the topic. This study was designed to retrieve all studies on laser application in urology in Iran, regardless of publication status or language, covering years 1990-2017...

PURPOSE: To compare efficacy and safety of visual internal urethrotomy (VIU) using holmium laser (Ho:YAG) (group A) versus cold knife (group B) in children with urethral strictures. It may be the first comparative study on this issue in children. METHODS: This study compared Ho:YAG group, which was evaluated prospectively from January 2014 till January 2016, versus cold knife group, which was a historical control performed from March 2008 till February 2010. Children ≤ 13 years old with urethral strictures ≤ 1...

Background: Ureteral strictures are a recurrent chronic condition that leads to severe side effects and poor quality of life. Management of ureteral stricture is a great challenge for urologists and no specific guidelines exist. Retrograde Allium® ureteral stent (AUS) is a newly developed ureteral stent to treat either bulbar urethral or ureteral stenosis. Case Presentation: We describe a case of a 74-year-old Caucasian adult male presenting with a severe ureteral stricture secondary to an ureteroscopy for stone disease...

INTRODUCTION: Urethral strictures are a common urological problem which could require complex reconstructive procedures. Urethral dilation represents a frequent practiced invervention associated with high recurrence rates. Drug-coated balloons with cytostatic drugs have been successfully used for the prevention of vascular restenosis after balloon dilation. In an attempt to reduce the restenosis rates of urethral dilation, these balloons could be used in the urethra. Nevertheless, the urothelium is different than the endothelium and these drugs may not be distributed to the outer layers of the urethra...

Objective: According to the EAU Guidelines, transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) has so far still been considered as the gold standard for surgical treatment for patients with obstructing clinical benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH). However, its relatively high rate of complications and postoperative recurrence necessitates further modification and innovation on the surgery technique. We reported the patient outcomes with our technique. Methods: We retrospectively analyzed 52 patients with obstructing clinical BPH who underwent bipolar transurethral enucleation and resection of the prostate (B-TUERP) between March 2015 and September 2015...

OBJECTIVES: To assess the association of Hypoandrogenism (HA) with urethral stricture disease in a series of patients undergoing urethroplasty at two institutions. Hypoandrogenism has recently been associated with increased urethral atophy in artificial sphincter failures and decreased androgen receptors and periurethral vascularity. HA might be an etilogic factor in urethral stricture disease. METHODS: We reviewed the charts in 202 men with anterior urethral strictures between 2011-2017...

INTRODUCTION: Whole-gland salvage treatment of radiorecurrent prostate cancer has a high rate of severe toxicity. The standard of care in case of a biochemical recurrence is androgen deprivation treatment, which is associated with morbidity and negative effects on quality of life. A salvage treatment with acceptable toxicity might postpone the start of androgen deprivation treatment, might have a positive influence on the patients' quality of life, and might even be curative. Here, toxicity and biochemical outcome are described after magnetic resonance imaging-guided focal salvage high-dose-rate brachytherapy in patients with radiorecurrent prostate cancer...
