Urine leak after robotic radical prostatectomy: not all urine leaks come from the anastomosis.

J Robot Surg 2021 Apr 24. Epub 2021 Apr 24.

USC Institute of Urology, University of Southern California, 1441 Eastlake Ave., Suite 7416, Los Angeles, CA, 90089-9178, USA.

Radical prostatectomy is the gold standard in patients that are surgical candidates with localized prostate cancer. While most postoperative urine leaks are from vesico-urethral anastomosis, urologists must be aware that a small percentage of patients may have a urine leak from other sites that may have been inadvertently injured during the procedure. We propose a systematic workup to evaluate the source of the urinary leak as well as appropriate management of such injuries. Read More

Massive urethrorrhagia due to a blunt perineum injury; a report of a case with bulbar pseudoaneurysm.

Urol Case Rep 2021 Sep 23;38:101651. Epub 2021 Mar 23.

Department of Radiology and Imaging, Isfahan University of Medical Sciences, Isfahan, Iran.

Blunt perineum trauma rarely leads to massive urethrorrhagia due to the formation of a bulbar aneurysm. A 29-year-old man with unstable hemodynamic underwent a digital subtraction angiography (DSA), which revealed a pseudoaneurysm in the penile bulb supplied from both internal pudendal arteries fistulized to the urethral duct bulb. A catheter was inserted into the distal part of pudendal arteries at the pseudoaneurysm's proximity, and an intermittent embolizing agent (Gel-foam) was injected. Read More

Management of urological trauma associated with pelvic fractures.

Br J Hosp Med (Lond) 2021 Jan 18;82(1):1-9. Epub 2021 Jan 18.

Department of Urology, Frimley Park Hospital, Frimley, Surrey, UK.

Urological trauma is frequently encountered in patients with high energy pelvic fractures and can have debilitating long-term sequelae for patients without appropriate multidisciplinary management. Anterior pelvic ring disruption causes a high incidence of bladder rupture and urethral injuries, and initial assessment requires urological tract imaging and emergent bladder drainage before subsequent surgical repair. Pelvic ring disruption requires urgent fixation and should be managed as an open fracture in the context of significant bladder and urethral injury with urinary leakage. Read More

A biomimetic urethral model to evaluate urinary catheter lubricity and epithelial micro-trauma.

J Mech Behav Biomed Mater 2020 08 18;108:103792. Epub 2020 Apr 18.

School of Medicine, University College Dublin, Dublin, Ireland; UCD Centre for Biomedical Engineering, University College Dublin, Dublin, Ireland. Electronic address:

The standard method of evaluating the lubricity of intermittent urinary catheters with coefficient of friction (CoF) testing is not physiologically relevant, while there is also a dearth of published research on catheter-associated urethral micro-trauma. We developed a novel human urethral epithelial cell-seeded model of the urethra to replace the rubber counter-surface used in standard CoF testing. This cell-seeded model, in conjunction with a novel testing device, allows an investigation of catheter-associated epithelial micro-trauma in vitro for the first time. Read More
