The impact of the 2005 International Society of Urological Pathology Gleason grading consensus on active surveillance for prostate cancer
Venkat M. Ramakrishnan, Karolin Bossert, Gad Singer, Kurt Lehmann, Lukas J. Hefermehl
Current treatment plans for localized PC are based on core needle biopsies (CNB) classified using the Gleason score (GS). Recently, many institutions have started using the latest version of International Society of Urological Pathology (ISUP) guideline revision from 2014 for grading prostate carcinoma (PC). Interestingly, this adoption is occurring without first understanding whether the 2005 ISUP revisions had a positive clinical impact. CNB-based GS may underestimate tumor aggressiveness and, therefore, critically impact patient eligibility for active surveillance (AS)

The impact of urinary bladder catheterisation after ureterorenoscopic stone removal on the postoperative course
Emilia Pawłowska-Krajka, Adam Dorobek
The most frequent reason for ureterorenoscopy is the necessity to remove calculi from the ureter and/or kidney. After completing this procedure the Foley catheter is inserted in the bladder. The aim of the study is to show whether catheterization of the bladder after ureterorenoscopic stone removal in patients with low-risk of complications is necessary and indicated.

The Mitrofanoff continent urinary diversion is commonly used in paediatric patients with neuropathic bladder disorder. Although the continence achieved is up to 80%, some complications may occur as such as stoma strictures or bladder lithiasis. The anatomic features, the lithiasis burden and the preservation of the Mitrofanoff's are among the principal criterias for the selection of the best surgical access for the treatment of the stones in this patients,..

José Vicente Baldissera Aradas, Luis Rodríguez Villamil, Guillermo Cruceyra Betriu, Sergio Fernández-Pello Montes, Iván González Rodríguez, Rodrigo Gil Ugarteburu, Javier Mosquera Madera
Despite the technical development and expanding indications, the new technologies in ESWL, URSC, RIRS and PNL have not been able to complete replace open surgery(OS). In these cases, laparoscopic surgery could be the most suitable option.. Various factors must be considered in order to offer an optimized surgical treatment.. When patient is counseled on the need for multisession surgery, the overall treatment cost and patient's preferences are important factors to decide treatment modality.

Paragangliomas are neuroendocrine tumours of extra adrenal origin. Although it occurs rarely in the genitourinary system, urinary bladder is the most common site. Its diagnosis warrants complete surgical excision with lymphadenectomy in case of metastatic disease. The functional status of this tumour makes intraoperative handling challenging. Surgical resection necessitates minimal manipulation of tumour thereby mitigating intraoperative physiological jeopardy. We report the possibility of minimally invasive partial cystectomy with bilateral vesico-ureteric junction resection and re-implantation for non-malignant paraganglioma involving the bladder trigone

Perigraft fluid collections after kidney transplantation: Does the type of donor (uncontrolled donation after circulatory death vs. donation after brain death) have a role?
Felix Guerrero-Ramos, Teresa Cavero-Escribano, Alfredo Rodríguez-Antolín, Amado Andrés-Belmonte, Juan Passas-Martínez, Ángel Tejido-Sánchez
Perigraft fluid collection (PFC) is a common complication after kidney transplant. Its etiology is not clear and not all the causes have been identified. The influence of the type of donor has never been evaluated. Our aim was to compare incidence, severity and management of PFC in recipients of grafts from uncontrolled donors after circulatory death (DCD) with normothermic extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (NECMO) versus recipients of grafts from donors after brain death (DBD).

"Central European Journal of Urology" is growing

Dear Friends, Colleagues,
Readers and Editors,

The importance of the "Central European Journal of Urology" is steadily increasing. This is of course,in a large part thanks to you. According to the SCOPUS database ranking of 98 urological journals published and indexed worldwide, our journal is ranked at the 58 th position. This is a very acceptable rank! First place is of course reserved by the "European Urology", but journals ranked near us show that our position is meaningful and the influence of the articles published in our journal is noticeable among the newest trending urological topics. This interesting SCOPUS ranking can be viewed on the following site: https://www.scopus.com/sourceid/19900192570?origin= sbrowse#tabs=1.

Independent of the Web of Science database, the citation index CiteScore prepared by SCOPUS, also contains positive news concerning our journal. In 2016, the CiteScore for the "Central European Journal of Urology" was 0.70. This index rating is calculated based on the amount of citations of articles published in a given journal during the last three years. By following the change in the citation index of the "Central European Journal of Urology", it can be easily seen that the importance of our journal is on the rise. The CiteScore in 2013 was 0.23, and increased to 0.37 and 0.62 in 2014 and 2015, respectively. What is the difference between the CiteScore (SCOPUS) from the Impact Factor (Web of Science)?

Both factors are derived from the amount of citations per published articles. It seems though that the CiteScore is more flexible. It is calculated more often (monthly), not yearly, as is the case for the Impact Factor. The method of calculation and assignment of the CiteScore is clear and available at all times to SCOPUS database users. Please follow how the CiteScore changes this year for the "Central European Journal of Urology"'. This information can be accessed by clicking on the CiteScoreTracker 2017tab. It is now that straight-forward!

By observing the changes occurring in international bibliographic databases, I think that thanks to these tools the SCOPUS database will soon become a very relevant player among the ranking systems and the CiteScore index will be of equal value to that developed by the Web of Science database. Perhaps overtime it will gain even more popularity?


Kindest regards,
Tomasz Drewa
