Laparoscopic pyeloplasty practice patterns in Canada.

Can Urol Assoc J 2019 Jan 21. Epub 2019 Jan 21.

Division of Urology, Department of Surgery, The Ottawa Hospital and University of Ottawa, Ottawa, ON, Canada.

Introduction: Ureteropelvic junction obstruction (UPJO) is a condition characterized by partial or complete obstruction of urine transport from the renal pelvis to the ureter and can present with intermittent flank pain, recurrent urinary tract infections, renal stones, or renal dysfunction. While historically, open pyeloplasty was the gold standard for surgical management, laparoscopic methods to repair UPJO have largely taken over as the preferred approach for adolescent and adult patients. Despite near universal adoption of laparoscopic pyeloplasty among Canadian urologists, it remains a technically complex procedure and considerable variability exists in the procedural steps performed.

Are there differences between de novo and secondary upper tract urothelial carcinoma tumours?

Can Urol Assoc J 2019 Jan 21. Epub 2019 Jan 21.

Division of Urology, Department of Surgical Oncology, Princess Margaret Cancer Centre, University Health Network and the University of Toronto, Toronto, ON, Canada.

Introduction: Upper tract urothelial carcinoma (UTUC) accounts for <5% of all urothelial cancers. We aimed to ascertain the clinical differences between UTUC tumours presenting de novo (DnUTUC) and those presenting secondary (SUTUC) following a bladder cancer diagnosis.

Methods: Our institutional database was queried for all UTUC patients who were surgically treated with radical nephroureterectomy or ureterectomy between 2003 and 2017. Read More

Percutaneous irreversible electroporation for the treatment of small renal masses: The first Canadian case series.

Can Urol Assoc J 2019 Jan 21. Epub 2019 Jan 21.

Department of Surgery, Division of Urology, University of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon, SK, Canada.

Introduction: Irreversible electroporation (IRE) is a novel technology used in the minimally invasive treatment of small solid organ tumours. Currently, there is a paucity of literature studying treatment of small renal masses (SRMs) with IRE. Our pilot study is the first case series in Canada to use IRE in the treatment of SRMs. Read More

Evaluation of inter-professional communication and leadership skills among graduating Canadian urology residents.

Can Urol Assoc J 2019 Jan 21. Epub 2019 Jan 21.

Queen's University, Kingston, ON, Canada.

Introduction: The importance of developing inter-professional communication and leadership skills among residents is well-recognized; however, formal tools to assess these skills are lacking. The goal of our study was to assess the leader and communicator roles in graduating urology residents using a validated self-assessment form developed for business students that focuses on inter-professional skills.

Methods: Chief residents (n=36) were evaluated with surveys of communication and leadership skills. Read More

Resident-run urology clinics: A tool for use in competency-based medical education for teaching and assessing transition-to-practice skills.

Can Urol Assoc J 2019 Jan 21. Epub 2019 Jan 21.

Division of Urology, The Ottawa Hospital, Ottawa, ON, Canada.

Introduction: In a competency-based approach to resident education, a component of training should focus on skills needed for the transition from residency to independent practice. The ability to run an outpatient clinic represents one such skill. Resident-run clinics (RRC) have been implemented in family medicine programs to allow residents to practice this skill, and have enhanced learning while providing excellent patient satisfaction.

Growth rates and outcomes of observed large renal masses.

Can Urol Assoc J 2018 Dec 3. Epub 2018 Dec 3.

Department of Urology, Queen's University Kingston, ON, Canada.

Introduction: The natural history of small renal masses has been well defined, leading to the recommendation of active surveillance in some patients with limited life expectancy. However, this information is less clear for large renal masses (LRM), leading to ambiguity for management in the older, comorbid patient. The objective of this study was to define the natural history, including the growth rate and metastatic risk, of LRM in order to better counsel patients regarding active surveillance. Read More

Can Urol Assoc J 2018 Dec 3. Epub 2018 Dec 3.

Division of Urology, Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre, University of Toronto, ON, Canada.

Introduction: We sought to examine the costs related to treatment and treatment-related complications for patients treated with surgery or radiation for localized prostate cancer.

Methods: We performed a population-based, retrospective cohort study of men who underwent open radical prostatectomy or radiation from 2004-2009 in Ontario, Canada. Costs, including initial treatment and inpatient hospitalization, emergency room visit, outpatient consultation, physician billings, and medication costs, were determined for five years following treatment using a validated costing algorithm.

Surveillance urodynamics for neurogenic lower urinary tract dysfunction: A systematic review.

Can Urol Assoc J 2018 12 3. Epub 2018 Dec 3.

Department of Urology, Houston Methodist Hospital, Houston, TX, United States.

Introduction: Baseline urodynamic characterization in patients with neurogenic lower urinary tract dysfunction (NLUTD) allows detection of unsafe storage and voiding pressures and optimization of these parameters through medical or surgical intervention. Surveillance urodynamics (sUDS) studies are performed in the ambulatory setting after baseline characterization, with the goal of monitoring bladder function. How often this study should be performed and the circumstances that should prompt repeated studies are unknown. Read More

Can Urol Assoc J 2018 Dec 3. Epub 2018 Dec 3.

Department of Urology, Queen's University, Kingston, ON, Canada.

Introduction: The urologist's role in the management of patients with spinal cord injury (SCI) is to prevent upper tract damage and renal failure while facilitating acceptable means for urine elimination. Residency provides the framework to manage SCI patients. The purpose of this study was to determine the surveillance practices of chief urology residents in high SCI patients (T4/5 and above) and their confidence in managing this patient population.

Impact of LUTS on urine volume in stone formers The impact of lower urinary tract symptomatology on urine volumes in stone formers.

Can Urol Assoc J 2018 Dec 3. Epub 2018 Dec 3.

Division of Urology, University of Alberta, Edmonton, AB, Canada.

Introduction: We aimed to determine if there is a correlation between International Prostate Symptom scores (IPSS) and 24-hour urine collection volumes, as patients experiencing lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) may have impaired ability to increase fluid intake for stone prevention.

Methods: We conducted a single-centre, retrospective review was performed of stone-formers presenting from 2014-2016. Inclusion criteria were completion of an IPSS questionnaire and a 24-hour urine collection. Read More

Introduction: Lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) are being treated in secondary care settings, resulting in delayed access for all patients. The objectives of this study were to examine the effects of an integrated delivery model on 1) the volume of care delivered in the secondary care setting; and 2) the use of potentially unnecessary care associated with LUTS.

Methods: This study was based on a retrospective analysis of administrative data collected before and after the integrated LUTS clinic was introduced in Calgary, Alberta. Read More

Avoiding routine postoperative voiding cystourethrogram: Predicting radiologic success for endoscopically treated vesicoureteral reflux.

Can Urol Assoc J 2018 11 5. Epub 2018 Nov 5.

Department of Urology, Mansoura Urology and Nephrology Center, Mansoura University, Egypt

Introduction: Variability in the success rates for the endoscopic correction of vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) has prompted a debate regarding the use of routine postoperative voiding cystourethrogram (VCUG). This study examines the predictive performance of intraoperative mound morphology (IMM) and the presence of a postoperative ultrasound mound (PUM) on radiologic success, as well as investigates the role of using these two predictive factors as a composite tool to predict VUR resolution after endoscopic treatment.

Methods: This retrospective study included children with primary VUR who underwent endoscopic correction with a double HIT technique and dextranomer/hyaluronic acid copolymer. Read More
