PURPOSE OF REVIEW: In this review, we summarize research that has evaluated the role of laparoendoscopic single-site (LESS) and robotic surgery in pediatric urology, highlighting new and/or controversial ideas. RECENT FINDINGS: The newest research developments over the last several years are studies that address generalizability of these techniques, ideal patient factors, extrapolation to more complex surgeries, and comparative studies to more traditional techniques to define the associated costs and benefits, as well as patient-centered outcomes...

3D reconstruction of the standard two-dimension cross-sectional imaging has known increasing diffusion. It may represent one of the key points for a tailored treatment planning. Along these lines, we used a novel software for augmented-reality robot-assisted radical prostatectomy (AR-RARP) at our Institution. 3D virtual models of the prostate and the prostate cancer were reconstructed from high resolution (1-mm slices) multi-parametric Magnetic Resonance Imaging (mp-MRI) by M3dics (Turin, Italy). The innovation in the study is represented by the software-based integration of the virtual model inside the Da Vinci (Intuitive, Sunnyvale, CA, USA) robotic console during robotic prostatectomy...

The use of digital data in large data sets will be of pivotal importance to unravel the biological basis of prostate cancer, and to improve on prevention and treatment. For the screening of asymptomatic tumors, their identification, and their treatment with better and targeted therapies, the integration of information from imaging, genomics, and biomarkers is needed. To bring these (un)structured data together, block chain technology is required, while knowledgeable analysts should be available. Therefore, it is of utmost importance to 'team up' and provide a common strategy for innovation...

INTRODUCTION: The ureteral stent is engrained in the fabric of urologic practice. Virginia Mason Medical Center had a unique role in its development through the pioneering work of Dr. Robert Gibbons. Here, we review his contribution to the evolution of the modern ureteral stent. METHODS: We reviewed Dr. Gibbons' extensive work through primary sources, including interviews, projector slides, radiology images, stent prototypes, his personal writings and archived documents...

BACKGROUND: The removal of obstacles from the surgical field is a crucial aspect of any procedure in gynecological, urological or visceral laparoscopic surgery. Reliable instruments and skilled assistance are essential for the smooth execution of procedures. Blunt forceps are commonly used to keep tissue away from the operating field. The range of existing instruments has been enhanced by the introduction of laparoscopic retractors. However, no laparoscopic retractor can be used without causing tissue damage...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: The techniques derived from abdominal transplant surgery have become a major actor in recent surgical evolution by providing a more optimal solution for urologic malignancies hosted in the upper abdomen. To describe in detail the objectives, rationale, relevant milestones, and surgical maneuvers of the so-called transplant techniques as applied to complex urologic oncology cases. RECENT FINDINGS: The transplant-based surgical approach aims to decrease perioperative complications by improving tumor accessibility and field visibility through an enhanced exposure (via the use of a transverse incision, a specific retractor, and specific surgical maneuvers)...

BACKGROUND: Three-dimensional view in laparoscopic general, gynaecologic and urologic surgery is an efficient, safe and sustainable innovation. The present paper is an extract taken from a full health technology assessment report on three-dimensional vision technology compared with standard two-dimensional laparoscopic systems. METHODS: A health technology assessment approach was implemented in order to investigate all the economic, social, ethical and organisational implications related to the adoption of the innovative three-dimensional view...

Computer technology has contributed to innovative progress in industrial infrastructures and has had a major influence on various work environments. Evaluations of work environments are routinely carried out in Western countries, but historically there has been resistance to such evaluations in Japan. In this mini-review, we discuss the current work environments of urologists in Japan. The number of urologists has increased each year, and the population density of urologists was 5.4 (per 100 000 people) in 2014...

INTRODUCTION: Evidence suggests that urinary and fecal incontinence and abnormal voiding and defecation dynamics are different manifestations of the same syndrome. This article reports the success of an innovative program for care of children with incontinence and dysfunctional elimination. This program is innovative because it is the first to combine subspecialty services (urology, gastroenterology, and psychiatry) in a single point of care for this population and the first reported independent nurse practitioner-run specialty referral practice in a free-standing pediatric ambulatory subspecialty setting...

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA or we) is classifying the prostatic artery embolization device into class II (special controls). The special controls that apply to the device type are identified in this order and will be part of the codified language for the prostatic artery embolization device's classification. We are taking this action because we have determined that classifying the device into class II (special controls) will provide a reasonable assurance of safety and effectiveness of the device...

Universally accepted as the treatment of choice for children needing renal replacement therapy, kidney transplantation affords children the opportunity for an improved quality of life over dialysis therapy. Immunologic and surgical advances over the last 15 years have improved the pediatric patient and kidney graft survival. Unique to pediatrics, congenital genitourinary anomalies are the most common primary diseases leading to kidney failure, many with urological issues. Early urological evaluation for post-transplant bladder dysfunction and emphasis on immunization adherence are the mainstays of pediatric pretransplant and post-transplant evaluations...

Introduction In 1917, Alma Hiller became the first woman to publish in the Journal of Urology ( JU). Her contribution was followed by articles from Carol Beeler and Isabel Mary Wason. This study explores their careers and contributions. Methods We reviewed JU articles from 1917 to 1925 and identified Hiller, Beeler, and Wason as the first three women authors. Using public records, we obtained information of their educations and careers. Results Hiller demonstrated resilience in obtaining training and ultimately contributed to innovation in clinical chemistry...

REVIEW
T M Kessler, S de Wachter
Neuromodulative procedures such as transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS), transcutaneous/percutaneous tibial nerve stimulation (TTNS/PTNS), and sacral neuromodulation (SNM) are promising second-line treatments for refractory lower urinary tract dysfunction. Using these therapies, both storage and voiding disorders but also bowel dysfunction might be successfully treated. Although the mechanism of action of neuromodulation is not well understood, it seems to involve modulation of spinal cord reflexes and brain networks by peripheral afferents (genital/rectal, tibial and sacral afferents in the case of TENS, TTNS/PTNS, and SNM, respectively)...

Azoospermia, the absence of any sperm cells from the ejaculated semen, poses a real challenge to the fertility urologist. While there are options to create happy families for azoospermic couples, such as the use of donor sperm and adoption, most couples still want to have genetically related offspring. Advances in urology, gynecology, and fertility laboratory technologies allow surgical sperm retrieval in azoospermic men and achievement of live births for many, but not all azoospermic couples. At present, there are extensive research efforts in several directions to create new fertility options by creating "artificial sperm cells...
