The fundamentals of chronic pelvic pain assessment, based on international continence society recommendations.

Neurourol Urodyn 2018 Aug;37(S6):S32-S38

Division of Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Drexel University College of Medicine, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Aims: Chronic pelvic pain (CPP) is defined as a noncyclical pain that has duration of at least 6 months and can lead to decreased quality of life and physical performance. The pain can be attributed to problems in the pelvic organs and/or problems in related systems, and possible psycho-social attributes may contribute to the manifestation. Due to the complex nature, CPP syndromes are multifactorial and the terminology needs to reflect the setting. Read More

Grading of renal cell carcinoma.

Histopathology 2019 Jan;74(1):4-17

Aquesta Uropathology, Brisbane, Qld, Australia.

Grading of renal cell carcinoma (RCC) has been recognised as a prognostic factor for almost 100 years. Numerous grading systems have been proposed, initially focusing upon a constellation of cytological features and more recently on nuclear morphology. It has been recommended that grading of RCC should be based upon nucleolar prominence/eosinophilia for grades 1-3, while grade 4 requires nuclear anaplasia (including tumour giant cells, sarcomatoid differentiation and/or rhabdoid morphology).

Variants and new entities of bladder cancer.

Histopathology 2019 Jan;74(1):77-96

Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, Indiana University School of Medicine, Indianapolis, IN, USA.

Pathological evaluation of bladder cancer typically reveals great tumour heterogeneity, and therefore the common observation of urothelial carcinoma exhibiting a wide variety of histopathological patterns is not surprising. Some of these patterns are so distinctive that they have been recognised as specific variants of urothelial carcinoma. Classifications have recently been revised in the 2016 World Health Organisation (WHO) classification of tumours of the urinary system and male genital organs. Read More

The association between shift work and chronic kidney disease in manual labor workers using data from the Korea National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (KNHANES 2011-2014).

Ann Occup Environ Med 2018 14;30:69. Epub 2018 Dec 14.

1Department of Occupational & Environmental Medicine, Eulji University Hospital, Daejeon, Republic of Korea 35233.

Objective: Kidneys are organs having a biological clock, and it is well known that the disruption of the circadian rhythm increases the risk of chronic kidney disease (CKD), including the decline of renal and proteinuria. Because shift work causes circadian disruption, it can directly or indirectly affect the incidence of chronic kidney disease. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to investigate the association between shift work and chronic kidney disease using a Korean representative survey dataset. Read More

Mesenchymal Neoplasms of the Genitourinary System: A Selected Review with Recent Advances in Clinical, Diagnostic, and Molecular Findings.

Surg Pathol Clin 2018 Dec;11(4):837-876

Departments of Pathology and Urology, VCU School of Medicine, 1200 East Marshall Street, PO Box 980662, Richmond, VA 23298, USA. Electronic address:

Mesenchymal neoplasms of the genitourinary (GU) tract often pose considerable diagnostic challenges due to their wide morphologic spectrum, relative rarity, and unexpected incidence at GU sites. Soft tissue tumors arise throughout the GU tract, whether from adventitia surrounding or connective tissues within the kidneys, urinary bladder, and male and female genital organs. This selected article focuses on a subset of these lesions, ranging from benign to malignant and encompassing a range of patterns of mesenchymal differentiation, where recent scholarship has lent greater insight into their clinical, molecular, or diagnostic features.

Protective Effects of Methane-Rich Saline on Renal Ischemic-Reperfusion Injury in a Mouse Model.

Med Sci Monit 2018 Oct 31;24:7794-7801. Epub 2018 Oct 31.

Faculty of Anesthesiology, Changhai Hospital, Second Military Medical University, Shanghai, China (mainland).

BACKGROUND Renal ischemic-reperfusion (RIR) injury remains a major cause of acute kidney injury, with increased in-hospital mortality and risks for chronic kidney disease. Previous studies have proposed that oxidative stress, inflammation, and renal apoptosis are the most common causes of injury, whereas recent research proved that methane, the simplest alkane generated by an enteric microorganism or accompanying the production of reactive oxygen species (ROS), can alleviate inflammation and oxidative stress and reduce apoptosis in different organs. MATERIAL AND METHODS In the present study, we analyzed the possible effects of methane-rich saline in RIR injury in a mouse model and analyzed its possible protective effects on inflammation, oxidative stress, and apoptosis.

Intersex, Hermaphroditism, and Gonadal Plasticity in Vertebrates: Evolution of the Müllerian Duct and Amh/Amhr2 Signaling.

Annu Rev Anim Biosci 2018 Oct 10. Epub 2018 Oct 10.

Physiological Chemistry, Biocenter, University of Würzburg, D-97074 Würzburg, Germany; email:

In vertebrates, sex organs are generally specialized to perform a male or female reproductive role. Acquisition of the Müllerian duct, which gives rise to the oviduct, together with emergence of the Amh/Amhr2 system favored evolution of viviparity in jawed vertebrates. Species with high sexspecific reproductive adaptations have less potential to sex reverse, making intersex a nonfunctional condition. Read More

Relationship Between Individual Components of the Extended-Criteria Donor Definition and the First Post-transplant Kidney Graft Resistance Index, Measured by Doppler Sonography.

Transplant Proc 2018 Jul - Aug;50(6):1680-1685. Epub 2018 Mar 13.

Department of Nephrology, Transplantation and Internal Medicine, Medical University of Silesia, Katowice, Poland.

Background: Despite an increasing utilization of kidneys procured from expanded-criteria donors, little is known about the effects of particular expanded-criteria donors definition components, that is, hypertension, increased creatinine prior to procurement, and cerebrovascular cause of death on the kidney graft Doppler parameters measured shortly after transplantation, whose increased values are associated with unfavorable outcomes. Hence, we analyzed the relationship between expanded-criteria donors components and resistance index values measured within 2 to 3 days post-transplant.

Material And Methods: The initial post-transplant resistance index value was measured in 676 consecutive successful first cadaveric kidney graft recipients without delayed graft function or early acute rejection episode. Read More

Urinary Bladder Pathology: World Health Organization (WHO) Classification and American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) Staging Update.

Arch Pathol Lab Med 2018 Jul 25. Epub 2018 Jul 25.

From the Department of Pathology, University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston (Dr Wang); and the Robert J. Tomsich Pathology and Laboratory Medicine Institute, Department of Anatomic Pathology, Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland, Ohio (Dr McKenney).

Context: - Since the publication of the previous World Health Organization (WHO) Classification of Tumours on the Pathology and Genetics of Tumours of the Urinary System and Male Genital Organs in 2004, significant new knowledge has been generated regarding the pathology and genetics of bladder neoplasia. Publication of the 2016 WHO "Blue Book" has codified that new data into updated recommendations for classification and prognostication. Similarly, the recent release of the 8th edition of the American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) Cancer Staging Manual, which was implemented in January 2018, has also addressed staging criteria for bladder cancer in several unique settings to clarify their application.

Hirschsprung's disease in a child with posterior urethral valve: An unwanted association.

Indian J Urol 2018 Jul-Sep;34(3):223-225

Department of Radiodiagnosis, SGRR Institute of Medical and Health Sciences, Dehradun, Uttarakhand, India.

Urinary bladder and the rectum share a common embryological origin, and the anatomical proximity of these two organs suggest that a dysfunction in either may influence the function of the other. Although, the coexistence of bladder and bowel dysfunction has been previously reported in the literature, there are hardly any reports on coexistence of posterior urethral valve (PUV) with Hirschsprung's disease. Here, we report a case of a 20-month-old male child who was initially treated for PUV and was later found to have coexisting Hirschsprung's disease. Read More
