Prostatic abscess. A case report and review of the literature on current treatment approaches
Mariam Choudhry, Gianluca Pellino, Costantinos Simillis, Sheng Qiu, Christos Kontovounisios
Prostatic abscess (PA) is a rare clinical entity due to a variety of causative organisms including gram-negative bacilli, anaerobic and fungal agents. We report a 55-year-old, HIV+ patient presented with a 2-week history of urethral discharge and a large PA. Patient was successfully treated with a combination of radiologically trasperineal drainage and antibiotics. Treatment decisions are evidently multifactorial and should be made with all diagnostic information available from advancements in medical imaging

Transurethral resection of the prostate is one of the most frequent urological procedures. Urinary tract infections represent major sequelae, but data about antibiotic prophylaxis in TUR-P are controversial and outdated.

Fatigue, Depression, and Quality of Life In Patients with Prostatic Diseases
Tobias Engl
Fatigue and depression are commonly attributed to malignant and chronic benign diseases. However, these phenomena have been little investigated to date in prostatic diseases. Our aim was to compare fatigue and depression in prostate cancer patients treated with Androgen Deprivation Therapy (ADT) and in patients with Lower Urinary Tract Symptoms (LUTS) / Benign Prostatic Syndrome.

68Ga-PSMA PET/CT imaging in recurrent prostate cancer: Where are we now?
Ewa Witkowska-Patena, Andrzej Mazurek, Mirosław Dziuk
Prostate cancer (PCa) is a major health concern worldwide with up to 60% of patients experiencing biochemical relapse after radical treatment. Early diagnosis of PCa recurrence is of high importance for successful salvage therapy. The need for accurate imaging has prompted the introduction of prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA)-based radiotracers for positron emission tomography (PET).

Ureterorenoscopy Training on Cadavers Embalmed by Thiel's Method: Simulation or a Further Step Towards Reality? Initial Report
Edward Mains, Benjie Tang, Tomasz Golabek, Tomasz Wiatr, Gillian Ross, Alan Duncan, Duncan Howie, Iain Tait, Piotr Chłosta, Sławomir G. Kata
The technique of ureterorenoscopy has a significant learning curve. Cadavers embalmed by the Thiel method have been successfully used for simulation training in a number of surgical specialties. Here we present our experience of the first use of Thiel cadavers in a formal ureteroscopy training course.

Assessment of the infiltrative character of bladder cancer at the time of transurethral resection: a single center study
Paweł Grzegółkowski, Krystian Kaczmarek, Artur Lemiński, Michał Soczawa, Adam Golab, Marcin Słojewski
Determining the clinical stage of bladder carcinoma before radical cystectomy characterized high inaccuracy. The discrepancy in some reports go up to 48%. Therefore clinical staging of bladder carcinoma is not recommended before radical treatment as it is for prostate cancer. However, the accuracy of clinical assessment of the muscle invasive character of the tumors at the time of transurethral resection has not been studied. In our study we estimate the accuracy of clinical staging during endoscopic treatment.

Is ureteral stent required after use of ureteral access sheath in prestented patients who undergo flexible ureteroscopy?
Gaston Astroza, Manuel Catalán, Lucas Consigliere, Tomas Selman, Jose Salvado, Francisco Rubilar
Use of a ureteral access sheath (UAS) within flexible ureteroscopy (fURS) for the management of kidney and ureteral stones has shown improvements in its effectiveness, but it is also associated with increased risk of ureteral injury. Use of ureteral stent (US) after fURS is recommended by some authors, because of its role in reducing postoperative pain and preventing complications. Our objective is to determine if postoperative stenting is necessary in prestented patients that underwent fURS using UAS.

En bloc kidney transplantation from a 24 month old donor to an adult recipient: case presentation and literature review
Daimantas Milonas, Inga Skarupskiene, Povilas Aniulis, Irmante Stramaityte, Egle Dalinkeviciene, Asta Stankuviene
Paediatric kidney transplantation into adult recipients is a well-recognised technique. However, there are different opinions regarding two methods of transplantation. These are: single kidney transplantation and en bloc kidney transplantation from donors up to 20 kg. We are reporting first successful en bloc kidney transplantation from a small, paediatric donor into an adult recipient in our institution and discussing according recent literature possible concerns using this technique. Despite that paediatric donors are uncommon and surgical experiences limited, en bloc kidney transplantation could be performed successfully and could be used to expand the donor pool.

Renal colic during pregnancy is a rare urgency but is one of the most common non-obstetric reasons for hospital admission. The management often means a challenge for the urologist and gynecologist due to the complexity involved in preserving the maternal and fetal well-being.

End of Year Letter from the Editor

Dear Colleagues,

It is my great pleasure to inform you that our own customized editorial panel has been activated!

It took several months to create the new panel and it took much longer to make its final improvements and perform usage tests. When deciding about the creation of the new panel, I was aware that a current scientific journal must use modern solutions. It must be impossible to imagine for our younger colleagues how a scientific journal could have been published without the internet, when communication took place via traditional mail, faxes and telexes and articles were written using typewriters.

On the other hand, these past communication methods were much more personalized. Today, a machine generates most editorial correspondence. Fortunately, much of our correspondence, such as that concerning the review or authorization of an article, takes place between people. I myself, very much appreciate the opportunity for personal contact.

The Central European Journal of Urology is published in two versions: the traditional paper version and in electronic format. Our new editorial panel prepares us well for the inevitable time when CEJU will be published only in the second version - in line with the global trend and according to the current economic and ecological demands. Although, I have to admit that I am partial to the traditional paper edition of CEJU as a more noble way of transferring knowledge and experience.

All of these changes and, above all, the end of the year and the coming holidays, have made me feel reflective. Therefore, when writing this Editor's Letter, I have allowed myself to take on a more personal tone.

I would like to wish you, dear colleagues, a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year filled with many personal and fruitful meetings. May you make the best choices as often as possible; the best for you, for your families, and for your scientific and medical work.

Tomasz Drewa
Editor-in-Chief,
Central European Journal of Urology
Vice-president of the Polish Urological Association
