INTRODUCTION: In our study, we reported on our monocenter experience with GreenLight (GL) Xcelerated Performance System (XPS)™ /MoXy™ laser fiber (American Medical Systems Inc., Minnetonka, Minnesota), examining its efficacy, safety, and its ability to effectively treat lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) in benign prostate obstruction (BPO). We also explored and compared the three different endoscopic approaches used for GL treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), standard photovaporization (PVP), anatomical PVP, and GreenLight XPS™ enucleation of the prostate...

Study Objectives: Previous research has suggested that general anesthetics can disturb postoperative sleep patterns by affecting the sleep-wake cycle. The objective was to identify the effects of general anesthetics on sleep quality and related behavioral changes in children. Methods: This was a prospective, observational case-control study with children, aged 18 months to 8 years, undergoing general anesthesia for elective surgery. Subjects wore an actigraph for seven days on three occasions: prior to surgery, the immediate postoperative period, and three months after surgery...

We retrospectively reviewed the indications and outcomes of ileal-ureter substitution cases for complex ureteral reconstruction. We analyzed the patient clinical characteristics, outcomes, and complications of eight patients who had ileal ureter substitution surgery at Kyoto University Hospital between 2009 and 2016. The median patient age was 55.5 years (36-79), and the median follow up period was 25.5 months (7-85). Seven patients had unilateral ureteral obstruction (right:left=4:3), and one had bilateral ureteral obstruction...

PURPOSE: Outcomes of surgical procedures can be affected by multiple factors including surgical skill and learning curve (LC). These factors need to be considered for optimal timing of surgical trials. We used the LC cumulative summation (CUSUM) method to describe the number of cases associated with competency of a single surgeon learning the technique of robotic kidney transplantation (RKT). METHODS: Thirty-three patients underwent Vattikuti Urology Institute technique of RKT at a center that recently adopted this procedure (study group)...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the effect of previous abdominal surgery(PAS) on laparoscopic resection of colorectal cancer. METHODS: The retrospective cohort study was adopted.Clinical data of consecutive colorectal cancer patients with PAS history (past history of at least one abdominal surgery, exclusion of previous inguinal hernia repair, simple laparoscopic approach, appendectomy of the right lower quadrant and endoscopic therapy) undergoing laparoscopic surgery at the Cancer Hospital of Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences between 2010 and 2015 were collected, meanwhile other colorectal cancer patients without PAS history were selected according to 1 to 1 match in age, sex, body mass index, American Society of Anesthesiologists score, tumor location, type of surgery, and staging of tumor...

Purpose: Local anesthetic agents such as bupivacaine and lidocaine are commonly used after surgery for pain control. The aim of this prospective study was to evaluate the safety of a mixture of bupivacaine and lidocaine in children who underwent urologic inguinal and scrotal surgery. Materials and Methods: Fifty-five patients who underwent pediatric urologic outpatient surgeries, were prospectively enrolled in this study. The patients were divided into three groups according to age (group I: under 2 years, group II: between 3-4 years, and group III: 5 years and above)...

Introduction We evaluated the applicability of laparoscopic nephrectomy in the treatment of multicystic dysplastic kidney (MCDK) in children, including procedures performed by resident physicians or trainees in surgical urology. Methods We retrospectively evaluated the medical records of 20 children with MCDK who underwent laparoscopic nephrectomy over a six-year period. Data collected included gender, laterality of the affected kidney, age at the time of surgery, the largest diameter of the multicystic kidney and associated urological diagnoses, surgical, and postoperative data...

INTRODUCTION: We aimed to assess flexible ureteroscopic stone extraction skill of urology postgraduate trainees (PGTs) at an Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE) and to determine whether previous experience in the operating theatre or practice on the simulator correlated with performance. METHODS: After obtaining ethics approval, PGTs from postgraduate years (PGYs) 3-5 were recruited from all four Quebec urology training programs during an OSCE. After a short orientation to the UroMentor™ simulator, PGTs were asked to perform Task 10 for 15 minutes, where two small stones from the left proximal ureter and renal pelvis were extracted using a basket...

AIM: To evaluate the possibility of using 3D-printing in the management of patients with localized kidney cancer. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The study comprised five patients with localized kidney cancer who were treated at the Urology Clinic of the I.M. Sechenov First Moscow State Medical University from January 2016 to April 2017. Along with the standard examination, the patients underwent multispiral computed tomography (MSCT) to produce patient-specific 3D-printed models of the kidney tumors using 3D modeling and 3D printing...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Recent advances in cancer treatment have resulted in better prognosis with impact on patient's survival, allowing an increase in incidence of a second primary neoplasm. The development of minimally invasive surgery has provided similar outcomes in comparison to open surgery with potentially less morbidity. Consequently, this technique has been used as a safe option to simultaneously treat synchronous abdominal malignancies during a single operating room visit. The objective of this study is to describe the experience of two tertiary cancer hospitals in Brazil, in the minimally invasive treatment of synchronous abdominal neoplasms and to evaluate its feasibility and peri-operative results...

OBJECTIVE: To compare costs associated with teleurology vs face-to-face clinic visits for initial outpatient hematuria evaluation. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The analysis included 3 cost domains: transportation, clinic operations, and patient time. Transportation cost was based on standard government travel reimbursement.

INTRODUCTION: Urinary stone disease is a major urological condition. Endourologic techniques have influenced the clinical approach and outcomes. Open surgery holds a historic importance in the management of most conditions. However, complex kidney stone burden may be amenable to successful results with open stone surgery. In this article, we report our eighteen cases of complex urinary stone disease who underwent open stone removal. MATERIAL AND METHODS: A total of 1701 patients have undergone surgical treatment for urinary stone disease in our clinic between July 2012 and July 2016, comprising eighteen patients who underwent open stone surgery...

Background Simulation based technical-skill assessment is a core topic of debate, especially in high-risk environments. After the introduction of the E-BLUS exam for basic laparoscopy, no more technical training/assessment urological protocols have been developed in Europe. Objective We describe the methodology used in the development of the novel Endoscopic Stone Treatment step 1 (EST s1) assessment curriculum. Materials and Methods The "full life cycle curriculum development" template was followed for curriculum development...

PURPOSE: Cystoscopy is one of the most common urologic procedures. The aim of this study is to investigate the combined effect of intraurethral lidocaine gel and intraglandular injection of lidocaine 2% on pain during and after cystoscopy. Materials & Methods: In this double-blind, parallel group randomized clinical trial, 156 patients referred for double J removal, urethral dilatation, or cystoscopy were enrolled. The patients were divided into two groups, A and B. All patients received 20 cc of intraurethral lidocaine gel 2%...

INTRODUCTION: We aimed to determine how renal tumour scoring systems, such as RENAL, PADUA, and Centrality (C)-index, compare to clinical judgement at predicting time required for tumour removal and kidney reconstruction during partial nephrectomy. METHODS: A consecutive cohort of partial nephrectomy patients treated at The Ottawa Hospital, a tertiary care uro-oncological centre, was retrospectively reviewed. Preoperative axial images were reviewed by four experienced urological oncologists who independently rated the complexity of a partial nephrectomy from 1-10 to generate a clinical judgement score...
