Comparing Outcomes of Medical Management and Minimally Invasive Surgical Techniques for Lower Urinary Tract Symptoms due to BPH.

Curr Urol Rep 2019 Apr 15;20(6):29. Epub 2019 Apr 15.

Division of Urology, Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, 125 Patterson St, MEB 584A, New Brunswick, NJ, 08901, USA.

Purpose Of Review: Compare outcomes of medical therapy as compared to minimally invasive surgical therapy (MIST) for treatment of bladder outlet obstruction RECENT FINDINGS: Treatment for lower urinary tract symptoms due to benign prostatic hyperplasia (LUTS/BPH) remains largely driven by patient symptomatology with medical therapy or watchful waiting as the first-line management strategies. However, most patients are not adherent to prescribed medical therapies and are hesitant to accept the risks associated with more invasive therapies. Minimally invasive surgical therapies are treatments providing short-term symptom relief superior to medical therapies without the sequela of more invasive procedures. Read More

Recent Trends in the Management of Bladder Exstrophy: The Gordian Knot Has Not Yet Been Cut.

Front Pediatr 2019 29;7:110. Epub 2019 Mar 29.

Department of Pediatric Urology, Clinic St. Hedwig, University Medical Center of Regensburg, Regensburg, Germany.

Although enormous effort has been made to further improve the operative techniques worldwide, the management of bladder exstrophy (BE) remains one of the most significant challenges in pediatric urology. Today it is universally agreed that successful and gentle initial bladder closure is decisive for favorable long-term outcome with regard to bladder capacity, renal function and continence. Due to a number of reasons, including a lack of comparable multicenter studies, a range of concepts is currently used to achieve successful primary closure. Read More

Surgical Management of Neurogenic Sphincter Incompetence in Children.

Front Pediatr 2019 26;7:97. Epub 2019 Mar 26.

Pediatric Surgery and Urology, Kinder- und Jugendkrankenhaus Auf der Bult, Hanover, Germany.

We report on the results of a literature review regarding the indications and results of operations to increase bladder outlet resistance to achieve dryness in children with neurogenic sphincter incompetence (NSBD). The relative advantages and disadvantages of injection of bulking agents, periurethral slings, bladder neck reconfiguration, artificial sphincters, and bladder neck closure based on a literature review and our combined clinical experience are discussed. Based on this review and our experience, we propose that periurethral injection of bulking agents is not justified as a primary treatment. Read More

Department of Urology, Sidney Kimmel Medical College, Thomas Jefferson University, Philadelphia, PA, USA. Email:

Injuries to the bladder are infrequent and commonly result from blunt, penetrating, or iatrogenic trauma. Bladder injuries may be missed as they often present concomitantly with other abdominal and pelvic injuries; however, early detection and treatment are essential as morbidity and mortality may be significant. Gross hematuria, especially in the setting of pelvic fractures, may be indicative of a bladder injury which can be confirmed with cystography. Read More

Optimal Management of Upper Tract Urothelial Carcinoma: an Unmet Need.

Curr Treat Options Oncol 2019 Apr 1;20(5):40. Epub 2019 Apr 1.

Department of Genitourinary Oncology, H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center & Research Institute, Tampa, FL, USA.

Opinion Statement: Upper tract urothelial carcinoma (UTUC) is a rare genitourinary entity of the renal pelvis and the ureter characterized by a more aggressive disease phenotype when compared with urothelial carcinoma of the bladder (UCB) with more than half of UTUC cases presenting with invasive disease at diagnosis compared to 20% for bladder tumors. There is growing evidence suggesting that its distinct natural history from that of bladder cancer can be related to several genetic and epigenetic differences. Treatment of low-risk disease consists of kidney-sparing surgeries such as ureteroscopic and percutaneous treatments, segmental ureterectomy, and adjuvant topical and intracavitary chemo-immunotherapies.

Ambulatory urodynamic monitoring: state of the art and future directions.

Nat Rev Urol 2019 Apr 1. Epub 2019 Apr 1.

Cleveland Clinic, Glickman Urological & Kidney Institute, Cleveland, OH, USA.

Urodynamic studies are a key component of the clinical evaluation of lower urinary tract dysfunction and include filling cystometry, pressure-flow studies, uroflowmetry, urethral function tests and electromyography. However, pitfalls of traditional urodynamics include physical and emotional discomfort, artificial test conditions with catheters and rapid retrograde filling of the bladder, which result in variable diagnostic accuracy. Ambulatory urodynamic monitoring (AUM) uses physiological anterograde filling and, therefore, offers a longer and more physiologically relevant evaluation. Read More

We report a rare case of erosion of an inflatable penile prosthesis reservoir into the bladder that was managed with a different approach from the literature by preserving the existing reservoir. Inflatable penile implant was applied to a 54-year-old male patient who had undergone with a robot-assisted radical prostatectomy operation due to localized prostate cancer 2 years before. Two months after the operation, the patient referred to our clinic with predominant symptoms of lower urinary tract system associated with scrotal pain and swelling. Read More

Crossed Fused Renal Ectopia with Single Ureter and Single Renal Vein: A Rare Case.

Cureus 2019 Jan 19;11(1):e3914. Epub 2019 Jan 19.

Radiology, Era's Lucknow Medical College and Hospital, Lucknow, IND.

Crossed fused renal ectopia with a single ureter and single renal vein is a rare congenital anomaly in which both the fused kidneys lie on one side of the body. We present an unusual case of crossed fused renal ectopia with a single ureter, single renal vein, and a calculus in a 22-year-old man who presented with lower abdominal pain, burning micturition, and a right-side abdominal lump present for three months. On abdominal ultrasound and non-contrast computed tomography (CT), the left kidney was not visualized in the left renal fossa. Read More

Deep Dyspareunia: Review of Pathophysiology and Proposed Future Research Priorities.

Sex Med Rev 2019 Mar 27. Epub 2019 Mar 27.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, BC, Canada; BC Women's Centre for Pelvic Pain and Endometriosis, Vancouver, BC, Canada; Women's Health Research Institute, Vancouver, BC, Canada. Electronic address:

Introduction: Dyspareunia has been traditionally divided into superficial (introital) dyspareunia and deep dyspareunia (pain with deep penetration). While deep dyspareunia can coexist with a variety of conditions, recent work in endometriosis has demonstrated that coexistence does not necessarily imply causation. Therefore, a reconsideration of the literature is required to clarify the pathophysiology of deep dyspareunia. Read More

[Endoscopic enucleation of the prostate].

Urologe A 2019 Apr;58(4):437-450

Kantonsspital Frauenfeld, Klinik für Urologie, Spital Thurgau AG, Pfaffenholzstrasse 4/Postfach, 8501, Frauenfeld, Schweiz.

The spectrum of surgical procedures for the minimally invasive treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) has significantly increased over the last two decades. The simple suprapubic prostatectomy (subtotal prostatectomy, SP) has largely lost relevance in current practice. On the other hand, transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) has been further standardized and potentially made safer by the introduction of the bipolar technique and low-pressure systems.

Mar Biotechnol (NY) 2019 Mar 27. Epub 2019 Mar 27.

Institute of Marine Sciences (ICM), Spanish National Research Council (CSIC), Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain.

The European sea bass is one of the most important cultured fish in Europe and has a marked sexual growth dimorphism in favor of females. It is a gonochoristic species with polygenic sex determination, where a combination between still undifferentiated genetic factors and environmental temperature determines sex ratios. The molecular mechanisms responsible for gonadal sex differentiation are still unknown. Read More

Low doses of decitabine improve the chemotherapy efficacy against basal-like bladder cancer by targeting cancer stem cells.

Oncogene 2019 Mar 27. Epub 2019 Mar 27.

Department of Genetics, School of Life Science, Anhui Medical University, Hefei, Anhui, 230031, China.

Low dose treatment with the DNA methylation inhibitor decitabine has been shown to be applicable for the management of certain types of cancer. However, its antitumor effect and mechanisms are context dependent and its activity has never been systematically studied in bladder cancer treatment. We used mouse models, cultured cell lines and patient-derived xenografts to demonstrate that low dose decitabine treatment remarkably enhanced the effects of cisplatin and gemcitabine on basal-like bladder cancer both in vivo and in vitro.
