Anomalies of the inferior vena cava and renal veins and implications for renal surgery
Ahmed Eldefrawy, Mohan Arianayagam, Prashanth Kanagarajah, Kristell Acosta, Murugesan Manoharan
Abnormalities of the inferior vena cava (IVC) and renal veins are extremely rare. However, with the increasing use of computed tomography (CT), these anomalies are more frequently diagnosed. The majority of venous anomalies are asymptomatic and they include left sided IVC, duplicated IVC, absent IVC as well as retro aortic and circumaortic renal veins. The embryological development of the IVC is complex and involves the development and regression of three sets of paired veins. During renal surgery, undiagnosed venous anomalies may lead to major complications

Urine markers and prostate cancer
Jacek Wilkosz, Magdalena Bryś, Waldemar Różański
Prostate cancer (CaP) is the most common cancer in men globally, with an estimated prevalence of more than 2 million cases. Given the poor success rate in treating advanced CaP, intervention in early stages may reduce the progression of small localized carcinoma to a large metastatic lesion, thereby reducing disease-related deaths. Urine is readily available and can be used to detect either exfoliated cancer cells or secreted products. The major advantages of urine-based assays are their noninvasive character and ability to monitor CaP with heterogeneous foci

Education concerning carcinoma of prostate and its early detection
Sławomir Dutkiewcz, Sylwia Jędrzejowska
According to our assumption, educating men increase their awareness on the need of screening tests and results in increasing reporting to physical examinations. This in turn allows for an early detection of the disease.

Pentoxifylline effects on renal structure after urethral obstruction in rat: A stereological study
Mehdi Shirazi, Ali Noorafshan, Amir Farrokhi
Chronic renal failure due to tubulointerstitial fibrosis is one of complications of lower urinary tract obstruction. As pentoxifylline is a xanthine derivative that inhibits some inflammatory mediators we conducted this study to investigate whether pentoxifylline inhibits renal fibrosis in a rat model of partial urethral obstruction (PUO).

The semen analysis is the main diagnostic tool for evaluating the male fertility potential. The standard semen analysis includes evaluation of the sperm concentration, motility and their morphology. The most important question is whether results from semen analysis may be a certain marker for male fertility.. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Laparoscopic radical nephrectomy for large renal tumour - a case report and technical considerations.
Tomasz Szydełko, Krzysztof Tupikowski, Janusz Dembowski, Tadeusz Niezgoda, Adam Wojciechowski, Romuald Zdrojowy
In comparison to an open procedure, the laparoscopic radical nephrectomy has demonstrated advantages in regard to perioperative morbidity, postoperative pain, time of hospitalization and convalescence. However, most series of laparoscopic radical nephrectomy are confined to T1 tumors. The authors present a case of a large-volume-T2 renal tumour treated laparoscopically. The aim of the study is to present the operative technique and to discuss several unique problems that arise during the laparoscopic procedure in patients with large renal masses.

HEMOPERITONEUM SECONDARY TO BLEEDING OF HEPATIC METASTASIS OF TESTICULAR CARCINOMA
Gaston Astroza, Daniella Espínola, Víctor Faundes, Juan Calderón
Testicular cancer is the most common type of cancer among young patients. At the moment of diagnosis, between 30% and 50% of them have developed metastases, which affect retroperitoneal lymph nodes and lungs especially. Hepatic compromise is rare and is associated with poor prognosis. Besides this, hepatic lesions can complicate with necrosis and overgrowth, a phenomenon that is mainly seen in primary lesions. Furthermore, bleeding of secondary lesions is very uncommon. We present a case of a patient with massive hemoperitoneum secondary to rupture of hepatic metastatic lesions of a primary testicular tumor.

SCHWANNOMA, A RARE TUMOR OF THE SEMINAL VESICLE
Andrea M. Furtado, Eduardo Carrasquinho, Marco Ferreira, Ana Afonso, Fernando Ferrito
We present a rare case of a schwannoma of the seminal vesicle that occurred in a 3-year-old male with symptoms of the lower urinary tract. Ultrasonography and magnetic resonance imaging documented a solid mass in the patient left seminal vesicle. A transvesical approach with a transtrigonal midline incision was successfully performed. The microscopic aspect was compatible with schwannoma.

"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
