Robot-assisted laparoscopic reoperative repair for failed pyeloplasty in children: an updated series.

J Urol 2018 Nov 2. Epub 2018 Nov 2.

Department of Urology, Northwestern University; Division of Pediatric Urology, Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago, Chicago, Illinois.

Purpose: Among children with recurrent obstruction after pyeloplasty, reoperative pyeloplasty is commonly utilized. We previously reported on reoperative robot-assisted laparoscopic repair for failed pyeloplasty in 16 children and concluded that short term and intermediate outcomes were comparable to open reoperative repair. This updated series reports on longer-term outcomes from an extended series. Read More

Navigation of Fluorescence Cameras during Soft Tissue Surgery-Is it Possible to Use a Single Navigation Setup for Various Open and Laparoscopic Urological Surgery Applications?

J Urol 2018 Apr 22;199(4):1061-1068. Epub 2017 Nov 22.

Interventional Molecular Imaging Laboratory, Department of Radiology, Leiden University Medical Center, Leiden, The Netherlands; Department of Urology, The Netherlands Cancer Institute-Antoni van Leeuwenhoek Hospital, Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Electronic address:

J Urol 2017 Oct 12;198(4):928-936. Epub 2017 May 12.

Division of Urology, CHU de Québec-Université Laval, Québec, Canada.

Purpose: We evaluated the long-term safety and efficacy of once daily oral solifenacin suspension in children (5 to less than 12 years old) and adolescents (12 to less than 18 years old) with overactive bladder.

Materials And Methods: We conducted a 40-week, open label extension of a 12-week double-blind, placebo controlled trial. Outcome measures included incidence and severity of adverse events (primary end point), laboratory variables, vital signs, 12-lead electrocardiogram, post-void residual volume, and change from baseline to end of treatment in mean number of micturitions and incontinence episodes per 24 hours, number of incontinence-free days per 7 days and number of grade 3 or 4 urgency episodes per 24 hours (adolescents only).

Purpose: Ureteroenteric strictures represent the most common complication requiring reoperation after radical cystectomy. We investigated the prevalence, outcomes, predictors and management of ureteroenteric strictures.

Materials And Methods: We retrospectively reviewed our quality assurance, robot assisted radical cystectomy database to identify patients in whom ureteroenteric strictures developed. Read More

The Efficacy and Safety of OnabotulinumtoxinA or Solifenacin Compared with Placebo in Solifenacin Naïve Patients with Refractory Overactive Bladder: Results from a Multicenter, Randomized, Double-Blind Phase 3b Trial.

J Urol 2017 Jul 1;198(1):167-175. Epub 2017 Feb 1.

Ghent University, Ghent, Belgium.

Purpose: In this double-blind, randomized study we compared the efficacy and safety of onabotulinumtoxinA or solifenacin vs placebo in patients with overactive bladder who had urinary incontinence and an inadequate response to or were intolerant of an anticholinergic. Post hoc analysis was done to compare the effects of onabotulinumtoxinA vs solifenacin.

Materials And Methods: Solifenacin naïve patients were randomized to onabotulinumtoxinA 100 U, solifenacin 5 mg, (which could escalate to 10 mg at week 6 according to predefined criteria) or placebo. Read More

Multi-Institutional Review of Outcomes and Complications of Robot-Assisted Laparoscopic Extravesical Ureteral Reimplantation for Treatment of Primary Vesicoureteral Reflux in Children.

J Urol 2017 Jun 24;197(6):1555-1561. Epub 2017 Jan 24.

University of Chicago, Chicago, Illinois. Electronic address:

Purpose: Robot-assisted laparoscopic extravesical ureteral reimplantation has been proposed as a minimally invasive alternative to open ureteral reimplantation for correcting primary vesicoureteral reflux in children. However, in the current literature there are conflicting data regarding the safety and efficacy of this approach. Amid ongoing debate we analyzed outcomes and complications from this procedure in a large multi-institutional cohort. Read More

When Partial Nephrectomy is Unsuccessful: Understanding the Reasons for Conversion from Robotic Partial to Radical Nephrectomy at a Tertiary Referral Center.

J Urol 2017 07 10;198(1):30-35. Epub 2017 Jan 10.

Department of Urology, Glickman Urological and Kidney Institute, Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland, Ohio. Electronic address:

Purpose: We sought to identify the preoperative factors associated with conversion from robotic partial nephrectomy to radical nephrectomy. We report the incidence of this event.

Materials And Methods: Using our institutional review board approved database, we abstracted data on 1,023 robotic partial nephrectomies performed at our center between 2010 and 2015. Read More

First Clinical Experience with Extracorporeally Induced Destruction of Kidney Stones by Shock Waves.

J Urol 2017 Feb 21;197(2S):S160-S163. Epub 2016 Dec 21.

Department of Urology, Institute for Surgical Research, Ludwig-Maximilian University of Munich, Dornier System, Friedrichshafen, West Germany.

We performed extracorporeally induced destruction of kidney stones on 72 patients. No complications have resulted from the tissue exposure to high energy shock waves. Clearance studies before and after the shock wave treatment indicate no changes in renal function. Read More
