Testicular hemangioma is a rare benign testicular tumor. In this case we presented who an infant applied to our clinic with left scrotal swelling. The tests performed were found to be compatible with testicular hemangioma and accompanying hydrocele. We performed inguinal exploration due to hydrocele accompanying testicular hemangioma. Pathology of tissue was found to be compatible with testicular cavernous hemangioma. In our investigations, it was seen that it was the first infant cavernous hemangioma in the literature.

Sexual intercourse before exercise has a detrimental effect on lower extremity muscle strength in men.

Postgrad Med J 2021 Apr 1. Epub 2021 Apr 1.

Urology, University of Health Sciences Sisli Hamidiye Etfal Training and Research Hospital, Istanbul, Turkey.

Introduction: The question of whether sexual intercourse can harm athletic performance is a long-debated topic since first sport competitions were invented. Therefore, due to the lack of solid evidence, we aimed to evaluate the effects of sexual intercourse on muscle training performance.

Materials And Methods: Physically and sexually active, 50 men (age=29.3±1.14 years) were enrolled in the study. Participants completed three weight training sessions and all sessions were at the same time of the day. The maximum weight was adjusted in the first session. In the second and third sessions, they performed five repetitions of the squat with their maximum weight for each set with a total of five sets after participating in and abstaining from sexual intercourse the night before, respectively. The duration of sexual intercourse was measured with a stopwatch.

Results: The mean duration of sex was measured to be 13.8±3.61 min. Furthermore, the mean lifted weight before sex was calculated to be 109.4±11.41 kg and the mean lifted weight after sex was calculated to be 107±11.05 kg. According to obtained data, sexual intercourse has a significant detrimental effect on maximum weight in squat training (p=0001).

Conclusion: Results demonstrate that sexual intercourse within 24 hours before exercise have detrimental effect on lower extremity muscle force, which suggests that restricting sexual activity before a short-term activity may be necessary.

Regression of the Sweet's syndrome after Bacillus Calmette-Guérin therapy: A bladder cancer case report.

Urol Case Rep 2020 Jul 9;31:101202. Epub 2020 Apr 9.

University of Health Sciences Sisli Hamidiye Etfal Training and Research Hospital Urology Department Istanbul Turkey, Turkey.

The Sweet's syndrome is a rare dermatosis which can be related to underlying malignancies. In this case we presented a case, who applied to our clinic with severe dermatosis and hematuria. We diagnosed high grade non-muscle invasive bladder tumor, which was treated with transurethral resection of bladder-tumor and six cycle of Bacillus Calmette-Guérin therapy. After the treatment the dermatosis was regressed almost completely. However, recurrent bladder tumor was detected at the first control cystoscopy.

The correlation between atherogenic indexes and erectile dysfunction.

Aging Male 2020 Dec 8;23(5):1232-1236. Epub 2020 Apr 8.

Department of Urology, University of Health Sciences, Okmeydani Training and Research Hospital, Istanbul, Turkey.

Aside from the ordinary plasma lipid level measurements, the ratios based on individual plasma lipid levels such as atherogenic index of plasma (AIP), Castelli's risk index 1/2 (CRI-1/2), and atherogenic coefficient (AC) are the novel parameters to evaluate the patients with a high risk of CVD. In this study, we aim to evaluate the relationship between AIP, AC, and CRI-1/2 with increased risk of ED. Between April 2018 and February 2019, 253 patients, who were diagnosed as a vasculogenic ED in our clinic, were enrolled in the study. While the first group ( = 134) consisted of patients with moderate and mild ED (IIEF-EF: 17-30), the second group ( = 119) consisted of patients with severe ED. In addition to the mean values of lipid parameters; CRI-1 (total cholesterol/HDL), CRI-2 (LDL/HDL) AIP (log10(triglycerides/HDL), and AC (non-HDL/HDL) were calculated. The mean age was 44.02 ± 10.41 (24-70), and the mean BMI was 27.80 ± 4.12 (18.52 ± 41.97). However, CRI-1 and AIP values were found to be higher in the severe ED group compared to the mild ED group (CRI-1: 4.50 ± 1.47, 4.88 ± 1.30;  = .039; AIP: 0.489 ± 0.315, 0.617 ± 0.283;  = .007). Our results demonstrated that CR-1 and AIP have a positive correlation with the severity of ED. Moreover, we can suggest that patients with higher CR-1 and AIP values are likely to have more severe ED in the future.

Sarcoidosis is a rare cause of infertility: A case report.

Urol Case Rep 2020 Jan 1;28:101065. Epub 2019 Nov 1.

University of Health Sciences Sultan Abdulhamid Han Training and Research Hospital Istanbul, Turkiye.

In this paper, we presented a patient, who applied to our clinic because of infertility. After an intensive investigation, we diagnosed systemic sarcoidosis with testicular involvement. Urogenital sarcoidosis is a rare and insidious condition, however, it can lead to infertility. Therefore, following the diagnosis, we applied systemic steroid therapy to the patient. Within one year, the patient had a child without assisted reproductive techniques. According to our experience, in this case, we concluded that infertility without an etiology should be investigated elaborately. Furthermore, urogenital sarcoidosis should keep in mind as a rare etiology.

A purely penoscrotal approach: Reservoir placement of an inflatable penile prosthesis (IPP) in an orthotopic neobladder patient. Case report.

Arch Ital Urol Androl 2019 Oct 2;91(3). Epub 2019 Oct 2.

Department of Urology, Sisli Hamidiye Etfal Training and Research Hospital, University of Health Science, Istanbul.

Introduction: The inflatable penile prosthesis (IPP) is the last step in drug-resistant erectile dysfunction treatment. IPP implantation can be challenging, especially following a cystoprostatectomy with an orthotopic neobladder. There is no consensus about surgical techniques for placement of an IPP reservoir in such patients. In this paper, we present a case of an IPP and reservoir placement with a single penoscrotal incision.

Case: A 55-year-old patient, who underwent radical cysto-prostatectomy with an orthotopic neobladder seven years ago, presented with severe erectile dysfunction. His oncologic status was stable, and he was in remission. He also had high blood pressure and took medication for it. He previously used different medical treatments, such as oral phosphodiesterase-5 inhibitors (PDE5i), intraurethral prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) installations, and Trimix injections. As far as we know, he had no benefit from these treatments. A three-piece IPP was recom- mended. After a discussion of surgical techniques, we chose the penoscrotal approach, and the ectopic reservoir was placed through the inguinal canal, guided by a forefinger.

Results: The total operative time was 60 minutes, and the estimated blood loss was minimal. There were no perioperative complications. The patient was discharged on postoperative day one. He could start to use the IPP in the first month. His sexual and urinary functions were normal, and there was no abdominal bulging from the ectopic reservoir at the three-month follow-up.

Conclusions: In conclusion, ectopic placement of the reservoir through a single penoscrotal incision appears to be a safe and acceptable surgical technique for postoperative ED following a radical cystoprostatectomy with an orthotopic neobladder.

Plication without degloving - Safe and effective approach for correcting lateral and dorsal penile curvature: Case series.

Urol Ann 2019 Apr-Jun;11(2):217-218

Department of Urology, Şişli Hamidiye Etfal Training and Research Hospital, University of Health Science, Istanbul, Turkey.

Penile curvature deformities are often manageable with surgical reconstruction methods. We aimed to show the safety and efficacy of ventral and dorsal plication techniques without degloving in our two patients who have penile curvature. Two young adults, aged 20 and 23 years, presented to our clinic with lateral and dorsal penile curvatures. This problem has been sustaining since their teenage. Following the required preparations, two surgical techniques were used, namely Nesbit and Lue's "16-dot" technique. Patients completed a satisfaction survey at a mean of 6 months later the surgery. Although both patients reported a subjective decrease in penile length, their satisfaction rate was high. Penile plication without degloving is a safe and effective technique for correcting dorsal and lateral penile curvatures.

A rare malformation of urinary system: Right ectopic thoracic kidney.

Urol Ann 2017 Jul-Sep;9(3):299-300

Thoracic Surgery Clinic, Sisli Hamidiye Etfal Research and Training Hospital, University of Health Sciences, Sisli, Istanbul, Turkey.

An ectopic kidney is a common developmental anomaly of the urinary system. However, the thoracic kidney (TK) is the rarest state form of an aberrant kidney. The aim of this case report is defining the symptoms in TK diagnosis and constructing a treatment model will promote the best outcomes. These patients come to the physician with the various symptoms, and they could be diagnosed incidentally. In our case, we describe 40 years female patient with severe respiratory problems and upper back pain. In the pulmonary clinic, suspected mass was diagnosed with chest X-ray, and computerized tomography detected nontraumatic nonhernia associated, a truly ectopic TK. Moreover, the thoracic surgeon and urologist team decided to exploration and reconstructed the right ectopic kidney. The 1 month of the control of patient symptoms was disappeared. Overall, TK should be kept in mind in the differential diagnosis of thoracic tumors. Surgical exploration and reconstruction should be thought in patients who have severe respiratory symptoms.
