BACKGROUND: To report our experience for endoscopic treatment of upper urinary tract carcinoma (UTUC) in patients with imperative indications for management. METHODS: Retrospective data were collected for all patients who underwent endoscopic management of UTUC for imperative situations, from September 2013 to January 2019. Comorbidity was determined by using the age-adjusted Charlson comorbidity index (CCI). The primary endpoint of the study was overall survival (OS). Secondary outcomes were re...

INTRODUCTION: To give a comprehensive depiction of the utilization status of neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) in muscle invasive bladder cancer (MIBC) worldwide. EVIDENCE ACQUISITION: Potential relevant research papers of Pubmed, Embase, Web of Science, and the Cochrane Library were reviewed to identify eligible studies. Primary outcomes of this meta-analysis were utilization rate of NAC and its utility distribution in different genders, races, ages, countries and temporal trends. The utilization ...

BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to compare four renal access techniques in percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL). METHODS A total of 437 patients who underwent PCNL at our Center from January 2015 to December 2019 were included in the analysis. Telescopic metallic coaxial dilation (TMD) was usedin 146 patients, single step balloon dilation (BD) in 98 patients, one-shot dilation with 30 F Amplatz (OS 30F) in 106 patients, and one-shot dilation with 16 F Amplatz (OS 6F) in 87 patients. Primary ...

INTRODUCTION Urinary incontinence is one of the most scared sequelae of robot assisted radical prostatectomy (RARP). Therefore, different surgical modifications, aimed to restore the original anatomy, were proposed to overcome this issue. The purpose of this study is to assess which is the best reconstruction technique (posterior only: PR; anterior only: AR; total: TR) compared to the standard approach for continence recovery after RARP in a tertiary care center. EVIDENCE ACQUISITION After estab...

BACKGROUND The impact of positive surgical margins (PSM) on outcomes in partial nephrectomy (PN) is controversial. We investigated impact of PSM for patients undergoing PN on overall survival (OS) in different stages of renal cell carcinoma (RCC). METHODS Retrospective analysis of patients from the US National Cancer Database who underwent PN for cT1a-cT2b N0M0 RCC between 2004-13. Patients were stratified by pathological stage [pT1a, pT1b, pT2a, pT2b, and pT3a (upstaged)] and analyzed by margin...

INTRODUCTION: Adherent perinephric fat (APF) could negatively influence surgical outcomes of partial nephrectomy (PN). Novel radiological scores have been introduced to preoperatively detect APF, i.e. Mayo Adhesive Probability (MAP) score and Perinephric Fat Surface Density (PnFSD). We aimed to evaluate clinical predictors of APF and the association of MAP and PnFSD with perioperative outcomes after PN. METHODS: Clinical and radiological data of patients undergoing open or robotic PN were prospe...
BACKGROUND: The aim of this cross-sectional study is to evaluate the "real life" data of patients following successful treatment with PTNS for overactive bladder syndrome (OAB) or non-obstructive voiding dysfunction (NOVD) at a 7-year follow- up after the procedure. METHODS: Patients who were successfully treated with PTNS for OAB or NOVD between February 2008 and January 2009 were contacted for a telephonic interview seven years after the end of their PTNS stimulation protocol. Patients who agr...

INTRODUCTION: This systematic review and meta-analysis was conducted to assess the prognostic differences between different Gleason patterns in patients with prostate cancer (PC) within Internal Society of Urological Pathology (ISUP) grade group 4 (GG 4). EVIDENCE ACQUISITION: PUBMED and Scopus databases were searched for articles published prior to December 2019 according to the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Review and Meta-analysis statement. Studies were deemed eligible if they com...
