Biologic markers of the urothelial cell cancer of the bladder
Jakub Dobruch, Theo M. de Reijke, Andrzej Borówka
Cancer of the urinary bladder (BCa) is a major cause of morbidity and mortality all over the world. Clinical and pathological features have limited capacity to detect bladder cancer patients at high risk of recurrence and mortality. Several tissue and urine markers were introduced to improve the prediction of oncological end points.. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Treatment efficiency of chronic urethral syndrome with Doxycycline in females
Sławomir Dutkiewcz
Urethral syndrome (US) is a term for a complex symptom including urinary urgency, frequency, urethral and bladder pain. The genesis of US often relates to young woman and their sexul activites.
The aim of the study was estimation of the results treatment with doxycycline in females with US.

Renal calculi composition studies with the use of microtomography
Grzegorz Tatoń, Eugeniusz Rokita, Andrzej Wróbel, Felix Beckmann, Piotr Thor
Usefulness of a three-dimensional microtomographic image histogram analysis in renal calculi composition studies was investigated. Results were compared to the X-ray crystallography (XRD).

Doxazosin induces apoptosis in PTEN-positive androgen- independent PC cells via inhibition of Akt activation
Hanna Romanska, Maciej Salagierski, Rachel Bruton, Paul Abel, Marek Sosnowski, El-Nasir Lalani
Doxazosin, a selective alfa1-adrenoreceptor antagonist widely used in the management of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), has been shown to induce apoptosis in androgen-independent (AI) and PTEN-negative prostate cancer (PC) cells. The objective of this study was to assess the effects of doxazosin on the growth of PC cells with a functional PTEN/PI3K/Akt pathway in relation to cell androgen sensitivity and Bcl-2 expression.

Wunderlich syndrome - good imaging avoids bad surgery: a case report and short review.
Svetoslav Dyakov, Petar Chankov, Alexander Hinev
Spontaneous renal hemorrhage, known as Wunderlich syndrome, is a rare clinical condition. The most common cause is tumor – benign or malignant. Other causes are: rupture of a renal cyst, vasculitis, hydronephrosis, preeclampsia, and kidney infections. Although rare, this syndrome may cause life-threatening hemorrhagic shock – it requires prompt diagnosis and treatment. Radiologic imaging plays an essential role in the diagnosis, although often misleading and insecure about the underlying entity

A Rare Cause Of Hematuria In Children: Arteriovenous Hemangioma Of The Bladder
Yusuf Kibar, Mete Kilciler, Hasan Cem Irkilata, Fikret Erdemir, Murat Zor, Onder Onguru, Murat Dayanc
Bladder hemangiomas are exceedingly rare benign tumors of the urinary bladder that accounts for 0.6 % of bladder tumors. Although this tumor can occur at any age, hemangioma in childhood is relatively rare. Hemangiomas are classified as cavernous, capillary or arteriovenous. Most hemangiomas of the bladder are of the cavernous type. In the literature arterivenous hemangiomas have been described only in adults. We report a case of arteriovenous hemangioma of the urinary bladder in an 1-year-old young boy


Dear Colleagues!

Please forgive me for this somewhat reflective mood, but it is caused by the up- coming end of the 2015-2018 term of the PUA Executive Board. As you probably know, the Editor-in-Chief of the Central European Journal of Urology is appointed by the PUA Executive Board, which is why this introductory article is somewhat of a summary.

So then, for this reason, I would like to share some information about the development of the journal. The journal is developing very well. When analyzing the names of the authors, we can see that we are recognizable not only in Europe but also around the world. Urologists from large academic centers publish their articles in our journal. We operate on an "open access" basis and therefore do not charge any fees. This is undoubtedly an asset. An expression of this is the growing number of our citations. The CiteScore coefficient for the Central European Journal of Urology is currently 1.11, while last year it was 0.70. The systematic increase in citations year by year sets the stage to move us from Emerging Cites Sources and promote us to the Science Citation Index Expanded, managed by Clarivate Analytics, formerly Thomson Reuters, which is associated with the granting of the socalled "Impact Factor". I first submitted our journal in 2015 and the assessment, at that time made by Thomson Reuters, was that we should remain in the "waiting room", and therefore we were included in Emerging Sources Citation Index. I submitted my second request for re-assessment at the end of 2017 and I am currently awaiting an answer. I hope to get a positive decision.

Building a urological journal in Europe is not a simple task. We already have journals of recognized position and reputation, such as European Urology, European Urology Focus, as well as World Journal of Urology, Urologia Internationalis, Scandinavian Journal of Urology and International Urology and Nephrology. There are also newly created journals such as European Urology Oncology which has very strong support from the European Association of Urology. We must show that we are needed in Central Europe! We do not have anything to prove!

The standing of a scientific journal depends firstly on the quality of the materials submitted, that is from the authors' workshops. However, this is only one side of the coin!

The team of people who verifies submitted scientific materials is also very crucial. This is probably the most important thing that I would like to convey. Usually, I do not officially direct words of thanks to my colleagues, because I think that they consciously chose the tasks they carry out in their lives. At this point, however, at the end of the 2015-2018 term of the PUA Executive Board, I would like to thank Dr. Bartosz Dybowski, my assistant Editor-in-Chief, for the enormous amount of work and time devoted to the extremely professional preparation of each issue. His ex- pert knowledge and availability could be the envy of many a manager. Without the hard work of Dr. Dybowski, this journal would not look like it does today, and the choice of his person for this position was certainly the right one.

I would also like to personally thank our section editors for their hard work and input. Przemysław Adamczyk, Ewa Bres-Niewada, Stefan Buntrock, Abdullah Erdem Canda, Michał Ciszek, Olga Dolejšová, Simona Di Francesco, Jan Hrbáček, Kajetan Juszczak, George Kasyan, Daimantas Milonas, Maciej Salagierski and Przemysław Waliszewski have always stood up to the task. Dear Colleagues, I know how much you have done for the journal, I appreciate it, and I will always remember your commitment.

Nothing could be done without the huge backing of internationally recognized professionals, without which the magazine would not be in the right form and would not grow. The Consulting Editors and the Editorial Board are these advisory bodies that I would like to thank for their knowledgeable comments and support in making difficult decisions.

Also, I would like to recognize the Reviewers, who often work "behind the scenes" but are nonetheless extremely helpful. Their complete independence allows them to give us their wise and unbiased opinions. Thank you for your support during the entire 2015-2018 term.

In conclusion, it is my sincere hope that the journal will continue to develop even better and even more vigorously in the coming years.

The Editorial Office would like to inform all interested parties that in Central European Journal of Urology an article entitled "Efficacy of holmium laser urethrotomy and intralesional injection of Santosh PGI tetra-inject (Triamcinolone, Mitomycin C, Hyaluronidase and N-acetyl cysteine) on the outcome of urethral strictures" [Kumar S, Kishore L, Sharma AP, Garg N, Singh SK. Cent European J Urol. 2015; 68: 462-465] was published which is very similar to the article entitled "Efficacy of Optical Internal Urethrotomy and Intralesional Injection of Vatsala-Santosh PGI Tri-Inject (Triamcinolone, Mitomycin C, and Hyaluronidase) in the Treatment of Anterior Urethral Stricture" published in Advances in Urology [Kumar S, Garg N, Singh SK, Mandal AK. Adv Urol. 2014; 2014: 192710. doi: 10.1155/2014/192710. Epub 2014 Oct 1].

The authors of these articles did not inform the CEJU Editorial Office about the prior publication of an article with a similar subject matter nor did they refer to it in their References section.

The Editorial Office regrets the existing situation.
