Background null Urethral stricture disease is a common problem amongst men in Western countries often leading to a decreased quality of life. Current endoscopic treatment procedure shows an unsatisfying stricture recurrence rate which could be improved by addition of local therapies. null Objectives null To provide an overview of both preclinical and clinical studies in order to investigate current level of evidence on the addition of local therapy to improve urethral stricture recurrence rates ...

A recent statement from the European-Society-for-Sexual-Medicine has highlighted the limitations of using the rat model for nerve-sparing prostatectomy. The use of young rats with no comorbidities and the early evaluation of the erectile function (EF) are deemed a source of bias. Our aim was to evaluate the long-term consequences in EF of bilateral nerve cavernous crush- injury (BNCI) in type 1 diabetic (DM) rats 30-male/12-week-old rats were divided into four groups: Sham, BNCI, DM, and BNCI + ...

OBJECTIVES To identify incidence and risk factors for upstaging from cN1 to pN2/N3 at inguinal lymphadenectomy (ILND) for penile cancer (pSCC). Our secondary objective is to assess survival outcomes and associations for cN1 patients undergoing ILND. SUBJECTS/PATIENTS AND METHODS Patients with pT≥1cN1cM0 pSCC who underwent bilateral ILND and had complete data were identified in a multi-institutional international cohort from 8 referral centers in 7 countries diagnosed from 1980 to 2017. Upstaging...

Cystinosis is an inherited metabolic disorder caused by recessive mutations in the CTNS gene. The disease primarily affects the kidneys followed by extra-renal organ involvement later in life. Azoospermia is one of the unclarified complications which is not improved by cysteamine treatment, the only available disease-modifying treatment. We aimed at unravelling the origin of azoospermia in cysteamine-treated cystinosis by confirming or excluding an obstructive factor, and investigating the effec...

Abstract null null Objective null A lack of demonstrated clinical benefit precludes radiotherapy (RT) from being recommended for pN1/pN2 penile cancer (PeCa) lesions; but it may be recommended in case of extranodal (pN3) disease or for positive resection margins. Perineal urethrostomy (PU) is a technique of urinary diversion in patients with PeCa requiring total or subtotal penectomy as primary therapy. Prior studies suggest PU failure rates of up to 30%, without specific mention of the potentia...
