Metastatic Penile Carcinoma - An Update on the Current Diagnosis and Treatment Options
Dimitri Barski, Evangelos Georgas, Holger Gerullis, Thorsten Ecke
Penile carcinoma has an incidence of ,000 cases in Europe. The therapy and prognosis depend decisively on the lymph node status. Lymph node metastases are detected in 23% - 65% cases depending on the histopathological pattern. Due to improved diagnostic methods an early detection of tumor stage is possible. Multimodal therapeutic concepts can offer curability for a subset of patients, even those suffering from advanced disease.

Significance of ASAP and extensive HG-PIN in clinical practice
Przemysław Adamczyk, Zbigniew Wolski, Romuald Butkiewicz, Joanna Nussbeutel, Tomasz Drewa
Prostate cancer (PCa) is one of the most commonly diagnosed neoplasms in men. The precancerous lesion of PCa is considered a high-grade prostate intraepithelial neoplasm (HG-PIN), when atypical small acinar proliferation (ASAP) is commonly considered as underdiagnosed cancer. The aim of the study was to establish impact of ASAP and extensive HG-PIN on pre-biopsy PSA level and risk of cancer development in subsequent biopsy.

Usage of Invisible Near Infrared Light (NIR) Fluorescence with Indocyanine Green (ICG) and Methylene Blue (MB) in Urology. Part . 1
Wojciech Polom, Marcin Markuszewski, Young Soo Rho, Marcin Matuszewski
Near infrared (NIR) technology has recently garnered much interest as a tool for intraoperative image-guided surgery in various surgical sub-disciplines. In urology, although nascent, NIR technology is also fostering much enthusiasm.. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Adrenergic crisis due to pheochromocytoma -practical aspects. A short review
Kajetan Juszczak, Tomasz Drewa
The definitive therapy in case of pheochromocytoma is complete surgical resection. Improper preoperative assessment and medical management places the patient at risk for complications from adrenergic crisis. Therefore, it is crucial to adequately optimize these patients before surgery. Optimal preoperative medical management significantly decreases morbidity and mortality during the tumor resection.

Management and Follow up of Extraadrenal Phaeochromocytoma
Dimitri Barski
The prevalence of phaeochromocytoma (PCC) in patients with hypertension is 0.1-0.6% and about 10% of PCCs are detected in extraadrenal tissue. The diagnosis and therapy of this rare disease detected as a retroperitoneal tumor mass can be difficult for clinicians.

Diagnosis of Extraadrenal Phaeochromocytoma after Nephrectomy
Dimitri Barski, Samer Ezziddin, Sebastian Heikaus, Hartmut P.H. Neumann
We report on a 50-yr-old man admitted to the Urology Ward with suspicion of a left kidney tumor. As part of the pre–operative work-up ultrasound and computed tomography of the kidneys were conducted. The results confirmed the initial diagnosis. The postoperative diagnosis was extraadrenal pararenal phaeochromocytoma (ePCC) with SDHB gene mutation. During follow-up a second tumor was detected by F-DOPA-PET CT triggering another surgery with complete resection of the tumor. The patient and his family were counseled by a genetic laboratory and remain under surveillance.

Tadalafil in the management of lower urinary tract symptoms: a review of the literature and current practices in Russia
Alexander Govorov, George Kasyan, Diana Priymak, Dmitry Pushkar, Sebastian Sorsabu
Strong epidemiologic evidence supports correlation between lower urinary tract symptoms due to benign prostatic hyperplasia (LUTS/BPH) and erectile dysfunction (ED). The link has biologic plausibility given phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5) expression in pelvic structures. PDE5 inhibitors target pathophysiologic processes implicated in LUTS/BPH.

Lower urinary tract symptoms and their severity in men subjected to prostate biopsy
Jakub Dobruch, Elza Modzelewska, Janusz Tyloch, Bartosz Misterek, Ewa Czapkowicz, Ewa Bres-Niewada, Andrzej Borówka
Lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) are one of most frequent complaints among men over 50 years of age. These usually result from benign prostate hyperplasia which often coexist with cancer.
The aim of the present study is to evaluate prospectively the incidence of LUTS and their character in men subjected to prostate biopsy.

Secondary infertility and the aging male, overview
Atif Abdulhamid Katib, Khalid Al-Hawsawi, Wael Motair, Abdallah Makhloof Bawa
Old men going for marriage late in their lives might face infertility. Infertility in old men should be treated in a wider perspective, as old men are subjected to many age-related health troubles that include, but not limited to, androgen deficiency and psychological disorders that impede early conception. This review aims at shedding lights on the proper approach of this minority of secondarily infertile men.

Percutaneous nephrolithotomy [PCNL] has been an excellent option for the management of kidney stones. There have been many complications in regards to solid organ injury during PCNL. Here we discuss an interesting case of 5 year woman, who underwent PCNL for right renal staghorn calculus and had accidental puncture of gall bladder. Post operatively patient was conservatively managed and recovered well. Least number of cases has been reported till now in literature.

Emphysematous pyelonephritis (EPN) is an acute, rare, inflammatory disease which typically occurs in patients who suffer from diabetes mellitus. Authors in the article below report a case of a patient who was admitted to the Department of Urology with septic signs, in whom after performance of computed tomography the diagnosis of EPN was established. As a treatment, the patient underwent organ preserving treatment. It consisted of pyelolithotomy with nephrostomy and insertion of DJ catheter to the left ureter

Urachus is the remnant of the cloaca which in adults attaches the bladder dome with umbilicus. After birth it obliterates and presents as midline umbilical ligament. Urachal patent anomalies are usually detected in childhood. In adults occur very rarely and its presentation and diagnosis may be occasionally challenging. We present and discuss the case of infected urachal cyst found in a 30 year old adult
