Unsatisfactory testicular position after inguinal orchidopexy: Is there a role for upfront laparoscopy?

Arab J Urol 2020 24;18(1):48-53. Epub 2019 Nov 24.

Department of Pediatric Surgery, King Abdulaziz Medical City, Al-Hasa, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

: To examine the role of laparoscopy in managing unsatisfactory testicular position after an open inguinal orchidopexy. We hypothesised that testes that were originally peeping, where short vessels represented a difficulty and testes that only reached a high scrotal position under tension, especially after an initial surgery performed with the appropriate expertise, are candidates for initial laparoscopic dissection. : Nineteen boys with an initial open inguinal orchidopexy, with a mean age of 31 months, were considered.

Are video-urodynamics superior to traditional urodynamic studies in changing treatment decision with urinary symptoms?

Arab J Urol 2019 24;17(2):160-165. Epub 2019 Apr 24.

Department of Surgery, Division of Urology, University of Cincinnati Medical Center, Cincinnati, OH, USA.

: To investigate the utility of video-urodynamic studies (VUDS) in patients with various urinary conditions and to evaluate if the addition of fluoroscopic imaging changes the treatment plans one would pursue if urodynamic studies (UDS) alone were performed as VUDS increases cost, radiation exposure, and patient discomfort. : A retrospective chart review was conducted on all women who underwent VUDS from 2013 to 2015 at one institution. We hypothesised that the addition of the fluoroscopic images would not change the treatment plan. Read More

Arab J Urol 2019 11;17(2):114-119. Epub 2019 Apr 11.

Department of Urology, University of Illinois at Chicago, Chicago, IL, USA.

: To perform a systematic review and meta-analysis of clinical studies to assess the comparative prophylactic effectiveness of fosfomycin trometamol (FMT) vs ciprofloxacin (CIP) in men who underwent transrectal ultrasonography-guided prostate needle biopsy (TRUS-PNB), as infectious complications are a major concern after TRUS-PNB and although fluoroquinolones are currently the first choice, an increase in resistance has raised the question about its recommendation and FMT is a broad-spectrum oral antibiotic with low bacterial resistance. : A systematic review was performed between January 1970 and June 2017 using the Web of Science, Scopus and PubMed databases to identify relevant studies.
