Polycystosis of the renal sinus or polycystic kidney disease Controversies, challenges and history of a shared discovery.

Actas Urol Esp 2018 Dec 6;42(10):645-648. Epub 2018 Jul 6.

Servicio de Urología, Fundación Jiménez Díaz, Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, Madrid, España.

Diagnosis of metastasis in castration-resistant prostate cancer patients: decision algorithm in imaging tests.

Actas Urol Esp 2018 Aug 3. Epub 2018 Aug 3.

Servicio de Urología, Hospital Universitario Carlos Haya, Málaga, España.

Introduction: In castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC), early detection of metastases is essential for the selection of treatment, and prevention of bone complications. However detecting incipient metastases remains a challenge as the conventional radiological tests (bone scintigraphy or computerised tomography) lack sufficient sensitivity. Diagnostic imaging techniques are currently available that have greater sensitivity and specificity, but are little used due to shortfalls in the recommendations. Read More

The style of scientific communication.

Unidad Urología Oncológica, Departamento de Urología, Fundació Puigvert, Universidad Autónoma de Barcelona, Barcelona, España.

Context: Writing skills and the importance of drafting quality are often disregarded. Just as there are guidelines on what each part of a scientific article should comprise (introduction, material and methods, results and conclusion), there are 'norms' as to how to draft the article. Novel results can only be appropriately reflected in a formal and structurally correct text. Read More

Spanish urological schools (1880-1970).

Actas Urol Esp 2018 Nov;42(9):586-592

Oficina de Historia de la Asociación Española de Urología, Madrid, España. Electronic address:

Introduction And Objectives: We researched the start of urological specialisation in Spain, from the end of the 19th century to the institution of the education system (resident medical intern) to learn about the centres and individuals who created the urological teaching units and training schools in which the first Spanish urologists specialised their training.

Material And Methods: We extracted the references from books on the history of urology, from periodic urological publications and from the posters on history submitted to the congresses of the Spanish Urological Association and filled in the data and dates with the Historical Dictionary of Spanish Urologists.

Result: There are 30 urological specialization centres, 8 with official accreditation recognised by the corresponding ministry but whose official status is unknown. Read More

Methodology of a systematic review.

Actas Urol Esp 2018 Oct 3;42(8):499-506. Epub 2018 May 3.

Hospital Clínic, Barcelona, España; EAU Guidelines Office Board Member.

Context: The objective of evidence-based medicine is to employ the best scientific information available to apply to clinical practice. Understanding and interpreting the scientific evidence involves understanding the available levels of evidence, where systematic reviews and meta-analyses of clinical trials are at the top of the levels-of-evidence pyramid.

Acquisition Of Evidence: The review process should be well developed and planned to reduce biases and eliminate irrelevant and low-quality studies. Read More

Expanding indication of padeliporfin (WST11) vascular-targeted photodynamic therapy: results of prostate cancer Latin-American multicenter study.

Actas Urol Esp 2018 Dec 23;42(10):632-638. Epub 2018 Apr 23.

Departamento de Urología, Universidad Estatal de Campinas (UNICAMP), São Paulo, Brasil.

Objectives: To explore the proportion of patients with higher risk localized prostate cancer (PCa) that would become safely biopsy negative 12 months after non-thermal focal therapy with padeliporfin vascular-targeted photodynamic therapy (VTP).

Methods: Multicenter study in a scenario of prostate-specific antigen (PSA) ≤20ng/ml and variable PCa target volumes Gleason pattern 3 or low-volume secondary Gleason pattern 4, all patients received VTP, consisting of intravenous 4mg/kg padeliporfin activated by light-diffusing fibers in the prostate. The prostate was biopsied at baseline, months 6 and 12, PSA, patient-reported functional outcomes and quality of life (QoL) questionnaires were recorded at baseline, months 3, 6, and 12 and adverse events (AE) throughout the study.

Radical robot-assisted laparoscopic nephrectomy with thrombectomy in the vena cava.

Actas Urol Esp 2018 Oct 24;42(8):538-541. Epub 2018 Apr 24.

Servicio de Urología, Hospital Universitario Donostia, Donostia-San Sebastián, Guipúzcoa, España.

Background: Renal cell carcinoma has a natural tendency to extend through the renal vein. When the thrombus reaches the vena cava, thrombectomy and the necessary reconstruction of the vena cava are typically performed by open pathway. Robot-assisted technology provides advantages for performing this complex technique, using a minimally invasive access. Read More

Review of the evidence on handling drugs and hazardous products in Urology Departments. Consensus document between the Spanish Urological Association and the Spanish Society of Hospital Pharmacy.

Actas Urol Esp 2018 Apr 20. Epub 2018 Apr 20.

Hospital Universitario Dr. Peset, Valencia, España.

Background: The intravesical administration of hazardous drug products is a standard practice in the urology setting, which potentially exposing medical personnel to these drug products. It was deemed necessary to have a consensus document among the scientific societies involved (the Spanish Urological Association and the Spanish Society of Hospital Pharmacy) that collects the best available evidence on the safest handling possible of dangerous drug products in the setting of urology departments.

Methods: We reviewed the legislation and recommendations on the handling of dangerous drug products, both at the national and international level. Read More

Fragmentation targeted at preferred discontinuities: A new concept in endolithotripsy with Holmium laser:YAG.

Actas Urol Esp 2018 Nov 17;42(9):606-609. Epub 2018 Apr 17.

Unidad de Litiasis, Servicio de Urología, Fundacio Puigvert, Barcelona, España.

Introduction: There are currently 3holmium laser, YAG (Ho:YAG) endolithotripsy procedures that are considered basic (fragmentation, pulverisation, "pop-corn" technique). We present the technique of fragmentation targeted at preferred discontinuities (FTPD), a new concept of endolithotripsy by Ho:YAG laser.

Material And Methods: The FTPD technique is based on the selective application of energy (targeting a specific preselected point) to an area that is visually prone to the formation of a fracture line or preferred discontinuity (conditioned by the anisotropy of the urolithiasis). Read More
