Extracorporeal ureter handling during laparoscopic pyeloplasty: tips and tricks for beginners.

Cent European J Urol 2019 6;72(4):413-417. Epub 2019 Dec 6.

Institute for Urology and Reproductive Health, Sechenov University, Moscow, Russia.

Introduction: Laparoscopic preparation of the ureter is a challenging part of upper urinary tract reconstruction, due to limited depth perception provided by the camera and lack of wristed motion of most laparoscopic instruments needed for adequate spatulation and scar tissue removal. One solution has been to perform the more difficult portions of the surgery in an extracorporeal manner. A hybrid intracorporeal-extracorporeal approach to upper tract ureteral reconstruction facilitates ureteral preparation at the stage of mastering the technique. Read More

Ureterolysis with ureterotomy and omental sleeve wrap in patients with radiation induced pelvic retroperitoneal fibrosis.

Cent European J Urol 2019 16;72(3):307-311. Epub 2019 Sep 16.

University of Florida, Department of Urology, USA.

Introduction: Secondary retroperitoneal fibrosis (RPF) due to pelvic radiation alone or together with pelvic surgery is one of the causes of obstructive renal failure. Ureteral obstruction is caused by ischemic stricture and encasement by fibrotic tissue. Endo-ureterotomy alone, without vascular supply, is not successful in these cases. Read More

Serum adropin as a predictive biomarker of erectile dysfunction in coronary artery disease patients.

Cent European J Urol 2019 8;72(3):302-306. Epub 2019 Jul 8.

Turgut Özal University, Medical Faculty, Department of Biochemistry, Ankara, Turkey.

Introduction: Erectile dysfunction (ED) is associated with various comorbidities and an early diagnosis and treatment is necessary to avoid the development of these comorbidities. Unfortunately, there is no biochemical marker that can be used for early diagnosis of ED. Nitric oxide (NO) is released by nerve and endothelial cells in the corpora cavernosa of the penis and is believed to be the main vasoactive chemical mediator of penile erection. Read More

Cent European J Urol 2019 2;72(3):296-301. Epub 2019 Sep 2.

Reproductive Medicine Associates of New York, NY, USA.

Introduction: The effect of paternal characteristics on embryo development and the outcome of preimplantation genetic testing for aneuploidy have not been extensively explored. This study investigates the association of sperm parameters, insemination, and extraction techniques, with the rate of embryo aneuploidy. This study sought to evaluate the association between male factor infertility and embryo aneuploidy. Read More

Endoscopic treatment of lower pole stones: is a disposable ureteroscope preferable? Results of a prospective case-control study.

Cent European J Urol 2019 16;72(3):280-284. Epub 2019 Sep 16.

Department of Urology, Clínica Santa María, Santiago, Chile.

Introduction: The best option for lower pole stone management is still under debate. With the recent incorporation of disposable ureteroscopes, discussion on this topic has been renewed. The aim of the present study was to compare the results obtained with flexible disposable ureteroscopes with those obtained using reusable ureteroscopes in the treatment of inferior calyx stones.

Metabolic syndrome and the composition of urinary calculi: is there any relation?

Cent European J Urol 2019 16;72(3):276-279. Epub 2019 Sep 16.

Department of Urology, Centro Hospitalar do Tâmega e Sousa, E.P.E., Penafiel, Portugal.

Introduction: Epidemiologic studies demonstrate that obesity and diabetes increase the prevalence of urinary lithiasis. Most of these studies did not stratify the chemical composition of calculi and the physiological mechanisms responsible for this increased risk are not well understood. This study aims to investigate the relation between the metabolic syndrome and the composition of the urinary calculi. Read More

Efficacy and safety of a combined anesthetic technique for transrectal prostate biopsy: a single center, prospective, randomized study.

Cent European J Urol 2019 16;72(3):258-262. Epub 2019 Sep 16.

Department of Urology, Hospital de Braga, Portugal.

Introduction: A transrectal ultrasound-guided (TRUS) biopsy is the gold standard for diagnosis of prostatic neoplasia. This exam is associated with pain and discomfort, and numerous methods of analgesia during this procedure have been described. There is still no consensus among urologists about the pain control technique that should be performed, even though the periprostatic basal nerve block is the most studied technique. Read More

Identification of potential prognostic factors for absence of residual disease in the second resection of T1 bladder cancer.

Cent European J Urol 2019 16;72(3):252-257. Epub 2019 Sep 16.

Department of Urology, Jagiellonian University Medical College, Cracow, Poland.

Introduction: The aim of this single centre retrospective study was to analyse the results of second resection (repeat transurethral resection of bladder tumour - reTURBT) after a macroscopically complete resection of T1 urothelial bladder tumour and to identify prognostic factors for absence of residual disease (T0) in the second resection of T1 bladder cancer.

Material And Methods: Patients with T1 bladder cancer diagnosed in a macroscopically complete initial resection who underwent second resection within 12 weeks were included into the retrospective analysis. Based on the presence or absence of residual disease, patients were grouped for further analysis. Read More

Virtual simulation, preoperative planning and intraoperative navigation during laparoscopic partial nephrectomy.

Cent European J Urol 2019 23;72(3):247-251. Epub 2019 Apr 23.

Volga State University of Technology, Yoshkar-Ola, Russian Federation.

Introduction: The use of computer navigation systems is a new and actively explored method used for surgical procedures concerning the abdominal and retroperitoneal organs. In this paper, we propose an original hardware - software complex, which forms a virtual body model, based on preoperative computer tomography data, transmitted to the operating screen monitor using a surgical navigation system, involving a mechanical digitizer.

Material And Methods: During a laparoscopic procedure, a three-dimensional (3D) model of a kidney with a tumor was used to obtain additional information on the primary or secondary monitor or for combining the virtual model and video images on the main or additional monitor in the operating room.

Cent European J Urol 2019 5;72(3):232-239. Epub 2019 Sep 5.

Nuclear Medicine, UZ Leuven, Leuven, Belgium.

Introduction: This paper aims to assess the diagnostic accuracy of an 11C-choline positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) scan in the detection of lymph node (LN) metastases in patients with biochemical recurrence after radically treated prostate cancer (PCa), as compared to histology. The secondary goal is to depict spreading patterns of metastatic LNs in recurrent PCa.

Material And Methods: A single center retrospective study comprising of 30 patients who underwent retroperitoneal and/or pelvic salvage lymph node dissection (LND) due to 11C-choline PET/CT-positive nodal recurrences after radical treatment (median Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) 1. Read More
