INTRODUCTION This study evaluates the introduction of an electronic pH meter to measure the urinary pH in patients with uric acid (UA) urolithiasis and assess patient's perspective. MATERIAL AND METHODS Patients known with UA urolithiasis were included in this single center, non-randomized, prospective feasibility study, IDEAL stage 2a. Their experience with urolithiasis and satisfaction with the method of urinary pH monitoring prior to inclusion was evaluated. All patients received an electroni...

BACKGROUND With recent technological advancement, new and improved endoscopic instruments and laser devices have catapulted flexible ureteroscopy (fURS) to the forefront, hence making retrograde intrarenal surgery (RIRS) a popular choice for the management of renal stones. However, RIRS has also resulted in an increasing number of work-related musculoskeletal disorders, which can have a detrimental impact on surgeons' physical health and operative lifespan. The aim of our review is to examine th...

Background null The Wisconsin Stone Quality of Life questionnaire (WISQOL) is a health-related quality of life measure designed for patients with urinary stones. It has been translated and used in several languages. This study aimed to validate the Japanese version of the WISQOL (J-WISQOL). null Materials and methods null The J-WISQOL was translated and validated using a multistep process proposed by the World Health Organization that involved forward translation, back-translation, and pilot tes...

INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES Benign prostatic enlargement (BPE) and big prostates are common. Photovaporization of the prostate (PVP) with Greenlight™ laser 180 W XPS, is considered a standard therapy for prostates smaller than 80 mL and an alternative for the treatment of bigger ones in selected cases. The aim of this study is to evaluate efficacy, safety and functional outcomes of PVP among patients with prostates over and under 80 mL. METHODS A cohort of 840 patients with BPE who underwent PVP...

Purpose null Although single-port (SP) robot-assisted radical prostatectomy (SP-RARP) is considered a safe and feasible approach for radical prostatectomy, the comparative performance of the SP robot with earlier models, including da Vinci Xi or Si is elusive. This systematic review summarizes the current evidence on SP-RARP and compares its perioperative, functional, and oncologic outcomes to multiport robot-assisted radical prostatectomy (MP-RARP). null Methods null We performed a systematic s...

Introduction and Objective Robotic-assisted radical nephrectomy (RRN) is increasingly utilized as an alternative to laparoscopic radical nephrectomy (LRN) but there are concerns over costs and objective benefit. In the setting of very large renal masses (>10 cm), comparison between techniques is limited and it is unclear whether a robotic approach confers any perioperative benefit over LRN or open radical nephrectomy (ORN). In this study, perioperative outcomes of RRN, LRN, and ORN for very larg...

INTRODUCTION We sought to describe the incidence, risk factors, and survival outcomes associated with pathological upstaging from non-muscle invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC) to muscle invasive bladder cancer (MIBC) after robot-assisted radical cystectomy (RARC). METHODS We reviewed the International Robotic Cystectomy Consortium database between 2004 and 2020. Upstaging was defined as ≥pT2 or pN+ at final pathology from clinical
