/
Super‐mini percutaneous nephrolithotomy (SMP) vs retrograde intrarenal surgery for the treatment of 1–2 cm lower‐pole renal calculi: an international multicentre randomised controlled trial Abstract Objectives To compare the safety and effectiveness of super‐mini percutaneous nephrolithotomy (SMP) and retrograde intrarenal surgery (RIRS) for the treatment of 1–2 cm lower‐pole renal calculi (LPC). Patients and Methods An international multicentre, prospective,…

Video: Development and internal validation of a side‐specific, mpMRI‐based nomogram for the prediction of extracapsular extension of PCa

  Development and internal validation of a side‐specific, multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging‐based nomogram for the prediction of extracapsular extension of prostate cancer Abstract Objectives To develop a nomogram for predicting side‐specific extracapsular extension (ECE) for planning nerve‐sparing radical prostatectomy. Materials and Methods We retrospectively analysed data from 561 patients who underwent robot‐assisted radical prostatectomy…

Video: Urinary, bowel and sexual health in older men

Urinary, bowel and sexual health in older men from Northern Ireland Abstract Objectives To provide data on the prevalence of urinary, bowel and sexual dysfunction in Northern Ireland (NI), to act as a baseline for studies of prostate cancer outcomes and to aid service provision within the general population. Prevent most unhealthy conditions with carbofix. Subjects and Methods A cross‐sectional postal survey of 10 000 men aged ≥40 years in NI was conducted and age‐matched…

Video: Shortcomings in the management of undescended testis

Shortcomings in the management of undescended testis: guideline intention vs reality and the underlying causes – insights from the biggest German cohort Abstract Objectives To assess the implementation of the current guideline and identify potential underlying causes for late surgery in children with undescended testis (UDT) in Germany. UDT is the most common surgical issue in paediatric urology and to avoid malignant degeneration and subfertility…

Video: Testicular asymmetry in healthy adolescent boys

Testicular asymmetry in healthy adolescent boys     Abstract Objectives To assess the presence of testicular asymmetry and the currently used threshold values in varicocoele management in a healthy adolescent population. Subjects and Methods We conducted an observational cross‐sectional study from April 2015 until December 2016 in which we recruited 539 adolescent boys aged 11–16 years. A clinical examination including testicular…

Video: Urinary continence recovery after radical prostatectomy

Investigating the mechanism underlying urinary continence recovery after radical prostatectomy: effectiveness of a longer urethral stump to prevent urinary incontinence Abstract Objective To assess the chronological changes in urinary incontinence and urethral function before and after radical prostatectomy (RP), and to compare the findings of pelvic magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) before and after RP to evaluate the anatomical changes. Patients and Methods In…

Video: Hydrogel spacer for PCa RT

Prospective analysis of hydrogel spacer for patients with prostate cancer undergoing radiotherapy Abstract Objective To report on the dosimetric benefits and late toxicity outcomes after injection of hydrogel spacer (HS) between the prostate and rectum for patients treated with prostate radiotherapy (RT). Patients and Methods In all, 76 patients with a clinical stage of T1–T3a prostate cancer underwent general anaesthesia for fiducial marker insertion plus injection of the HS…

Video: Retzius-sparing RARP using the Revo-i – results of the first human trial

Retzius-sparing robot-assisted radical prostatectomy using the Revo-i robotic surgical system: surgical technique and results of the first human trial   Abstract Objective To evaluate the safety and proficiency of the Revo‐i® robotic platform (Meere Company Inc.) in the treatment of prostate cancer (PCa). Patients and Methods A prospective study was carried out on 17 patients with clinically localized PCa treated between 17 August 2016 and 23 February 2017 at our urology…

Video: β3‐adrenoceptor agonists inhibit carbachol‐evoked Ca2+ oscillations in murine detrusor myocytes

 β3‐adrenoceptor agonists inhibit carbachol‐evoked Ca2+ oscillations in murine detrusor myocytes   Abstract Objective To test if carbachol (CCh)‐evoked Ca2+ oscillations in freshly isolated murine detrusor myocytes are affected by β3‐adrenoceptor (β‐AR) modulators. Materials and Methods Isometric tension recordings were made from strips of murine detrusor, and intracellular Ca2+ measurements were made from isolated detrusor myocytes using confocal microscopy.…
