Article Type: Letter to Editor | First Published: December 25, 2019

It appears all women who had urinary tract perforation following mesh tape in the study underwent partial (rather than total) removal surgery, including the 8 women whose devices had been in place for less than 8 weeks. It is relatively easy to totally remove a device that had been recently implanted, before scar tissue is matured and removal becomes difficult. It is not clear whether separate groin incisions were employed during surgery to achieve total removal of the women’s trans obturator ...

Effect, Adverse Events and Re-operations after Tension-free Vaginal Tape Obturator Surgery

Silja Maigaard Axelsen, Rikke Guldberg Sorensen, MD, PhD and Susanne Axelsen, MD, PhD

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: December 18, 2019

Women with stress urinary incontinence can be offered an operation with mid-urethral sling. First, Tension- free vaginal tape was invented. Some years later, because of concerns about complications associated with this operation, the other minimally invasive procedure using the trans obturator procedure was introduced by Dr. J. de Leval in 2003. Since then, the diversity in methods gave rise to a discussion of both efficacy, complications and reoperations. In Denmark, the professional discussion...

Nephrocutaneous Fistula after Microwave Thermal Ablation and Literature Review

Marius Anglickis, Giedre Anglickiene, Gintare Andreikaite, Lina Miklyciute and Edmundas Starolis

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: December 13, 2019

Nephrocutaneous fistula is a very rare complication of renal surgery. It may be associated with renal tumors, nonfunctional kidneys, staghorn calculi, renal trauma or chronic urinary tract infections. Because of widely used imaging techniques an early detection of small renal tumors has modified the management of kidney cancer. Nephron sparing surgical resection remains the standard of care for T1 tumors less than 7 cm. For patients who are not amenable for surgery, microwave thermal ablation (M...

Article Type: Research article | First Published: November 25, 2019

Several parameters are important to evaluate good oncological and functional results after robotic prostatectomy. We hypothesize that preservation or reconstruction of Retzius space can be valuable for better results outcomes, especially in terms of early continence recovery. In October 2018, electronic searches were conducted in the following databases: Cochrane, EMBASE, PubMed and Google Scholar. Manual searches in the reference lists of all the reviews and the relevant studies were identified...

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: November 06, 2019

Skull metastasis in prostate cancer is rare and is seen in advanced cases. We study four cases seen in our facility with the aim of identifying challenges in making diagnosis and treatment of these patients. We also reviewed the literature. This study involved four men age 55, 65, 66 and 69 years. In two cases, the skull metastases were discovered during evaluation for primary skull swelling, no lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) at presentation. In the other two cases, skull metastases were di...

Hormonal Evaluation of Adrenal Tumors: What the Common General Practitioner Should Know

Bruno Costa do Prado, Gustavo Silva Schafascheck and Alana Rocha Puppim

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: October 17, 2019

Adrenal tumors may be a benign finding or imply a high level of morbidity and mortality due to their hormonal activity, or to a possible malignant histology. Medical literature indicates that this condition is due to the improvement of the technique and dissemination in a wide range of imaging methods, increasing considerably the diagnosis of adrenal nodules and its immediate treatment. When treating a patient with adrenal tumors, the main concern of the professional should be to establish if th...

Our cohort comprised 96 consecutive patients treated with TURP for obstructive lower urinary tract symptoms associated with benign prostatic enlargement suggestive of benign prostate hyperplasia. We collected relevant data of our cohort including demographic data, comorbidities, past medical history presence of preoperative indwelling transurethral catheter and histopathology of prostate chips after resection were assessed for each patient. Patients’ charts were also reviewed to ascertain the ...

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: October 14, 2019

An experimental urinary system model was created. Stones previously taken during the operation were used for the procedure. For this purpose, stones with Ca-oxalate and Ca-phosphate were used. Kidney and ureter model was prepared under laboratory conditions. Irrigation catheter with a lumen of 15 mm was used for the ureter model. 9F rigid ureterorenoscope (Storz/Germany) was used to reach the stone. DORNIER MEDILAS H SOLVO/30 W-Germany laser was used for stone crushing. 275 and 550 microfibers w...

On December 2014, elective left radical nephrectomy with loco-regional lymphadenectomy and right lobe partial hepatectomy was performed. Despite a good initial evolution, an urgent open hepaticojejunostomy was performed on the 4th postoperative day, as the patient started with elevation of cholestasis enzymes, as well as coluria and acolia, and CT scan described intrahepatic bile duct dilatation and pneumoperitoneum. Afterward, the patient evolved favorably, being discharged on January 2015....
