PURPOSE To describe the change in upper urinary tract stone management in Germany over a 14-year period. METHODS Using remote data processing we analyzed the nationwide German billing data from 2006 to 2019. To analyze the clinics' case numbers and regional trends, we used the reimbursement.INFO tool based on standardized quality reports of all German hospitals. To also cover shock wave lithotripsy (SWL) as an outpatient procedure, we analyzed the research database of the Institute for Applied H...

PURPOSE The benefits and harms of the available types of surgical management for lichen sclerosus-related (LS) strictures remain unclear and, thus, clear and robust clinical practice recommendations cannot be given. MATERIALS AND METHODS To assess the role of single-stage OMGU in the management of LS strictures and explore how its benefits and harms compare with the alternative management options. Medline, Embase and Cochrane controlled trial databases (CENTRAL, CDSR) were systematically searche...

BACKGROUND Race/ethnicity may predispose to less favorable prostate cancer characteristics in intermediate risk prostate cancer (IR PCa) patients. We tested this hypothesis in a subgroup of IR PCa patients treated with radical prostatectomy (RP). METHODS We relied on the Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results 2004-2016. The effect of race/ethnicity was tested in univariable and multivariable logistic regression analyses predicting upstaging (pT3+/pN1) and/or upgrading (Gleason Grade Group [G...

PURPOSE To determine how many men are able to remain off of medical therapy for lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) following surgery for benign prostatic obstruction (BPO). METHODS The TriNetX Analytics Network was used to identify men who were taking medical therapy for BPO (at least one of: alpha-1 blockers, anticholinergics, B3 agonists, or 5-alpha-reductase inhibitors) and subsequently underwent surgery for BPO. They were then placed into one of six cohorts, classified based on the type of ...

PURPOSE To perform a cost analysis between vacuum-assisted percutaneous nephrolithotomy (vmPCNL) and minimally invasive PCNL (MIP) and explore potential predictors of costs associated with the procedures. METHODS We analyzed data from 225 patients who underwent vmPCNL or MIP at a single tertiary referral academic center between January 2016 and December 2020. We collected patients' demographics, peri-and postoperative data and detailed expense records. After propensity score matching, 108 (66.7%...

PURPOSE The main objective of static cold storage is to reduce cellular metabolic demands to extend the period of ischaemia prior to transplantation. Hypothermia does not halt metabolism and the absence of oxygen causes a cellular shift toward anaerobic respiratory pathways. There is emerging evidence that the introduction of oxygenation during organ preservation may help ameliorate the degree of ischaemia reperfusion injury and improve post-transplantation outcomes. This review aims to appraise...

PURPOSE To predict the occurrence of calcium oxalate kidney stones based on clinical and gut microbiota characteristics. METHODS Gut microbiota and clinical data from 180 subjects (120 for training set and 60 for validation) attending the West China Hospital (WCH) were collected between June 2018 and January 2021. Based on the gut microbiota and clinical data from 120 subjects (66 non-kidney stone individuals and 54 kidney stone patients), we evaluated eight machine learning methods to predict t...

PURPOSE To evaluate the potential opportunities and possible competitiveness of Avatera robotic system (ARS) (Avateramedical, Germany), and perform predictive cost-analysis for its implementation and dissemination. MATERIAL AND METHODS Our study employed a projective quantitative research design. SWOT (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, threats) analysis was used to map ARS internal competencies towards external contexts, and potential opportunities and risks in the robotic market. The ARS pu...
