BACKGROUND/AIM: The aim of this study is to research whether urinary symptoms and disruption of quality of life observed in Parkinson disease patients are different than those of their healthy peers. Additionally, whether these complaints were affected by characteristics such as age at onset of Parkinson disease, sex, disease duration, and severity was investigated. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This study comprised a total of 79 individuals, 39 Parkinson patients and a control group of 40 individuals...

OBJECTIVE: Urolithiasis is a common urological problem, and its incidence has been increasing worldwide, including in Japan. Relationships between stone etiology and rise in ambient temperature have been reported, but it remains unclear how age and gender affect these relationships. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A retrospective examination was conducted of the medical archives of 1005 patients (aged ≥15 years) with acute renal colic diagnosed with urolithiasis upon image examination who consecutively visited emergency departments in three hospitals...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study is to compare INFIX to plating in the treatment of unstable pelvic ring injuries with disruption of the symphysis. METHODS: Twenty-four patients treated with INFIX were compared to 28 patients fixed by plating. All patients had anterior and posterior fixation. Injuries were classified using the Young and Burgess and AO/OTA classification systems. Reductions of the pelvic ring were assessed using the pelvic deformity index (PDI) and symphyseal widening...

As men age, medical and surgical diseases involving the genitourinary tract become more common. The conditions themselves, if not their treatments, can negatively impact the fertility potential of an affected man. Many older men maintain the desire to father children, so it is critical to understand the disturbed anatomy and physiology involved to properly counsel that individual. Should this or that treatment regimen be employed? Should sperm banking be undertaken before institution of a permanently ablative/suppressive therapy? What are the long-term consequences of one therapy over another vis-à-vis sperm production, sperm quality, and/or sperm transport? In this context, some of the more common genitourinary afflictions of the older male and the treatment options that are available will be discussed...

Background - Vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) is a common pediatric urologic disorder. After the first urinary tract infection (UTI), imaging studies are recommended, starting with a renal ultrasound (US) and voiding cystourethrography (VCUG). We propose to determine whether abnormalities found on US can help indicate the necessity of VCUG in children after the first urinary tract infection. Methods - A retrospective study included all children admitted with their first episode of urinary tract infection from January 2007 to December 2012...

Cystinuria is an inherited disorder characterized by defective renal reabsorption of cystine and dibasic amino acids leading to nephrolithiasis. This study was conducted to analyze the genotypes and phenotypes of pediatric patients with cystinuria. Eight children from Seoul National University Hospital and Asan Medical Center presenting with cystinuria from January 2003 to June 2016 were retrospectively analyzed. Mutational studies were performed by direct sequencing. Two of the 8 were male and 6 were female...

A case of renal hemangioma in a male infant managed endoscopically is reported. The patient initially presented at 6 months of age to a nephrology clinic with gross hematuria and was found to have what was thought to be a renal cyst. He was referred to urology clinic at 18 months after having continued gross hematuria and negative nephrology evaluation. A magnetic resonance imaging suggested an enhancing mass in the renal pelvis and hydronephrotic upper pole cyst that was mistaken as cyst on ultrasound. A 1...

Urothelial tumors are very rare in children (to date, only about 150 cases have been reported worlwide). Only 20 % occur before the age of ten. The aim of this study is to specify the clinicopathologic features of urothelial tumor in young patients, which require a slightly different approach to treatment. On the basis of the WHO/ISUP (World Health Organisation/International Society of Urological Pathology) consensus classification report, these lesions are usually low-grade lesions, non invasive, and rarely recurrent...

CONTEXT: Kidney, prostate, and bladder cancers increase with age and are influenced partly by modifiable risk factors. Urological cancer rates may increase substantially amid a growing, aging population. OBJECTIVE: To describe kidney, bladder, and prostate cancer incidence, mortality, and risk factor-attributable bladder and kidney cancer deaths between 1990 and 2013, by age, sex, and development status. EVIDENCE ACQUISITION: Cancer mortality data were derived from global vital registries...

BACKGROUND: The aim of the study was to determine the incidence of multiple kidney arteries in the Polish population. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The study group comprised 924 deceased patients aged between one month and 94 years (mean age : 63.4 ± 22.4 years) who were subject to aortonephrography and sample preparation. The ratio of male to female patients was 479:445. RESULTS: Multiple kidney arteries were observed in 44.8% male and 31.5% female patients (p=0,004)...

BACKGROUND: To examine the effects of type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM) on the variables associated with prostatic growth including serum prostate-specific antigen (PSA), serum testosterone, and prostate volume, and to correlate these variables with the duration of diabetes treatment. METHODS: Our study was conducted over 3 months recruiting 501 men aged ≥ 55 years; of whom 207 had type 2 DM. Exclusion criteria were active urinary tract infection, suspicious rectal examination, urologic cancer, end-organ damage, and recent urological manipulations...

Importance: The efficacy of statins in reducing perioperative cardiovascular and other organ system complications in patients undergoing noncardiac surgery remains controversial. Owing to a paucity of randomized clinical trials, analyses of large databases may facilitate informed hypothesis generation and more efficient trial design. Objective: To evaluate associations of early perioperative statin use with outcomes in a national cohort of veterans undergoing noncardiac surgery...

PURPOSE: A major complication of in utero myelomeningocele (MMC) repair is premature delivery. The prematurity rate in MOMS study was 79%, with a mean gestational age (GA) at birth of 34 weeks. Considering this particular aspect of prenatal surgery group, we speculated if prematurity could also influence the urological outcome. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Since November 2011, we prospectively followed a population of MMC patients that had undergone in utero repair. RESULTS: We compared this population according to GA at birth: below 34 weeks (group 1) and 34 weeks or above (group 2)...

We sought to evaluate the effectiveness of the American Urological Association (AUA) antibiotic prophylaxis guidelines in patients undergoing robot-assisted laparoscopic radical prostatectomy (RALP). Our prospective registry database was reviewed for all RALP cases. The following variables were evaluated: age, associated comorbidities, body mass index (BMI), total operative time, length of stay (LOS), prostate weight, pathological grade and stage. Until 11/2011, RALP patients were treated with antibiotics administered in the operating room and continued until urethral catheter removal...

AIM: The aim of this study is to determine whether physicians have an age bias regarding sexual dysfunction presented by older vs. younger patients in terms of attributed diagnosis, etiology, proposed treatment and perceived prognosis. METHOD: An on-line survey consisting of one of two, randomly administered, case vignettes, which differed only by the age of the patient (28 or 78). In both cases, the patient was described as suffering from occasional erectile dysfunction with a clear psychosocial indication...
