[Genetic profiling in the diagnosis of hereditary prostate cancer: Where do we stand?]

Aktuelle Urol 2018 Dec 6;49(6):525-529. Epub 2018 Dec 6.

Johannes Gutenberg Universitat Universitatsmedizin, Klinik und Poliklinik für Urologie und Kinderurologie, Mainz.

Prostate cancer has a heterogeneous genetic profile compared with other tumour entities. Accordingly, there are also various mutations that increase the risk of prostate cancer. Some genetic variants only have a mild impact, whereas other gene mutations (BRCA1 /2; HOXB13) may increase the risk significantly. Read More

[The Rezūm system in the treatment of male lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTSs) due to benign prostatic obstruction (BPO)].

Aktuelle Urol 2018 Dec 6;49(6):519-524. Epub 2018 Dec 6.

Spital Thurgau AG, Urologie, Frauenfeld.

The classical algorithm of the management of male lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTSs) due to benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) includes a surgical approach in case pharmacological therapy has failed. Emerging minimally-invasive treatments (MITs) offer potential for rapid symptomatic relief, reducing the morbidity of invasive BPH surgery. Convective interstitial radiofrequency water vapour thermal ablation of the prostate with the Rezūm system is a novel MIT for the treatment of bothersome moderate-to-severe lower urinary tract symptoms associated with BPH.

[The UroLift® system for treatment of the benign prostatic syndrome (BPS)].

Aktuelle Urol 2018 Dec 6;49(6):515-518. Epub 2018 Dec 6.

Klinikum Großhadern/Innenstadt, Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München, Urologische Klinik und Poliklinik, München.

Minimally-invasive treatment options for patients with LUTS due to benign prostatic obstruction (BPO) become more and more important because they provide equal long-term efficacy compared with the reference method TURP, while having a more favourable safety profile. There are promising results for PUL (Prostatic Urethral Lift - UroLift) with low complication rates. UroLift is clearly superior regarding the preservation of sexual functions without impairment of ejaculatory function. Read More

[Implementation of telemedicine in daily care of urological patients].

Aktuelle Urol 2018 Dec 6;49(6):509-514. Epub 2018 Dec 6.

Universitätsklinikum Köln, Klinik für Urologie, Uro-Onkologie, spezielle urologische und roboter-assistierte Chirurgie, Köln.

Due to demographic changes and aging in the German population combined with the shortage of doctors, new techniques are needed to ensure urological patient care in the future. Telemedicine offers great potential to facilitate patient monitoring in their familiar surroundings and to ameliorate patient's compliance with the suggested therapy concept. Through optimal and reliable transfer of patient data, telemedicine helps to optimise patient satisfaction with urological therapies, binds them to their doctor and raises diagnostic safety.

[Augmented reality and virtual reality in the operating theatre status quo und quo vadis].

Aktuelle Urol 2018 Dec 6;49(6):500-508. Epub 2018 Dec 6.

Klinik und Poliklinik für Urologie und Kinderurologie der Universitätsmedizin Mainz, Mainz.

Introduction:  Virtual reality (VR) is an artificially simulated environment permitting interaction. On the other hand, augmented reality (AR) is an enhanced version of reality created by the use of technology to overlay digital information on an image of something being viewed through a device. Both technologies have partially been implemented in clinical daily routine. Read More

Hypercortisolism in Newly Diagnosed Type 2 Diabetes: A Prospective Study of 384 Newly Diagnosed Patients.

Horm Metab Res 2018 Dec 6. Epub 2018 Dec 6.

Department of Endocrinology and Internal Medicine, Aarhus University Hospital, Aarhus, Denmark.

Cross-sectional studies in small and selected populations report a high prevalence of hypercortisolism in patients with type 2 diabetes (T2D), which could have therapeutic implications, if confirmed. We therefore estimated the prevalence of hypercortisolism in a large and unselected cohort of recently diagnosed T2D patients. Consecutive patients with recently diagnosed T2D first underwent an overnight dexamethasone (1 mg) suppression test (OD). Read More

Effect of Sodium Glucose Co-Transporter-2 Inhibition on the Aldosterone/Renin Ratio in Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus.

Horm Metab Res 2018 Dec 6. Epub 2018 Dec 6.

Department of Clinical Biochemistry, Saolta University Health Care Group (SUHCG), Galway University Hospitals, Galway, Ireland.

The aldosterone to renin ratio (ARR) is recommended for case detection of primary aldosteronism (PA). Several factors including medications can undermine its diagnostic accuracy. The objective was to explore the effect of Sodium Glucose Co-Transporter-2 Inhibition on the ARR in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) who were prescribed a Sodium Glucose Co-Transporter-2 Inhibitor (SGLT-2i) as part of routine clinical care.

The Efficacy of Tiapride and Carbamazepine Combination Therapy in Reducing Alcohol Withdrawal Symptoms: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis.

Pharmacopsychiatry 2018 Dec 6. Epub 2018 Dec 6.

Head of Department, Professor of Psychiatry and Psychotherapy, Danuvius Klinik GmbH, Pfaffenhofen an der Ilm, Technischen Universität München, Bavaria, Germany.

The combination of tiapride (TIA) and carbamazepine (CBZ) as an alternative treatment option to benzodiazepines and clomethiazole has been investigated by several investigations. We performed a systematic review and meta-analysis to further explore the efficacy of this combination in order to render more definite answers whether this combination can be recommendable in the clinical practice. We systematically searched electronic databases including PubMed (MEDLINE), EMBASE, OVID, Cochrane, Google Scholar, and Scopus for human studies. Read More

[Results of Reinsertion of the Distal Achilles Tendon].

Authors:
Heinz Lohrer

Z Orthop Unfall 2018 Dec 6. Epub 2018 Dec 6.

Zentrum für Sportorthopädie, European SportsCare Network (ESN), Wiesbaden-Nordenstadt.

Background: Reattachment of the distal Achilles tendon to the posterior calcaneus following distal Achilles tendon tears/avulsions or after excision of large posterior heel spurs is a challenging task for the orthopaedic surgeon.

Patients/material And Methods: Between 2005 and the end of 2015, 22 patients who underwent repair/reconstruction of a lesion of the distal Achilles tendon were identified from our electronic records. Calcaneal reinsertions were performed following distal Achilles tendon tears/avulsions (n = 15) or following excision of a large symptomatic posterior heel spur (n = 7). Read More
