BACKGROUND The EAU Guidelines on Male Sexual and Reproductive Health state that both partners of the infertile couple should undergo simultaneous investigation. OBJECTIVES To assess the prevalence and the characteristics of infertile men who were referred for an andrological evaluation after failed attempts of Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) with those who were evaluated at the beginning of their infertility pathway at a single academic centre over a 17-year period. MATERIALS AND METHODS ...

BACKGROUND Robotic partial nephrectomy (RPN) in patients ≥75 years is certainly underused with concerns regarding surgical quality and a negligible impact on renal function. The aim of this study was to identify predictors of progression of chronic kidney disease for purely off-clamp (ocRPN) and on-clamp RPN (onRPN) in elderly patients on a multi-institutional series. METHODS A collaborative minimally-invasive renal surgery dataset was queried for "RPN" performed between July 2007 and March 2021...

Novel immune checkpoint inhibitors hold promise for non-muscle-invasive bladder cancer. Cooperation between urologists and other multidisciplinary bladder cancer specialists can surmount the challenges involved in using these agents in bladder-sparing approaches. This strategy could deliver a new era of comprehensive evaluation and multimodal treatment for this patient population.

Abstract null null Introduction null Advances in neoadjuvant therapy for patients with localized, nonmetastatic, upper tract urothelial carcinoma (UTUC) is needed. null null null Patients and methods null PURE-02 was a feasibility study enrolling individuals with UTUC, at clinical stage N0M0, with high-risk features according to the modified European Association of Urology definition, based on the presence of either: high-grade disease, multifocality, tumor size ≥2 cm, and/or hydronephrosis. The...

Aim To assess the prevalence of isolated teratozoospermia (iTZS) in a cohort of infertile and fertile men; explore the relationship between iTZS, inflammatory parameters and sperm DNA fragmentation index (SDF) in the same cohort. null null Materials and methods 1824 infertile men and 103 fertile controls. Semen analysis, the neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) and serum hormones were investigated. DFI was tested in infertile men only. According to 2010 WHO semen analysis, patients were categori...

The similar clinical behavior, overlapping therapeutic patterns, and several clinical trials addressing the neoadjuvant and first-line therapy settings for bladder cancer support the call for a more uniform definition of "locally advanced" disease. We highlight the diverse therapeutic opportunities that patients with locally advanced bladder cancer may receive at present. Multimodal management, and post-therapy surgery in particular, may still have a role in selected patients.

BACKGROUND Salvage treatment for local recurrence after prior partial nephrectomy (PN) or local tumor ablation (LTA) for kidney cancer is, as of yet, poorly investigated. OBJECTIVE To classify the treatments and standardize the nomenclature of salvage robot-assisted renal surgery, to describe the surgical technique for each scenario, and to investigate complications, renal function, and oncologic outcomes. DESIGN, SETTING, AND PARTICIPANTS Sixty-seven patients underwent salvage robot-assisted re...
