Estimation of mortality and morbidity risk of radical cystectomy using POSSUM and the Portsmouth predictor equation
Toshihiko Masago, Shuichi Morizane, Masashi Honda, Tadahiro Isoyama, Tsutomu Koumi, Kouji Ono, Hiroyuki Kadowaki, Takehiro Sejima, Atsushi Takenaka
The Physiological and Operative Severity Score for the enUmeration of Mortality and Morbidity (POSSUM) and the Portsmouth predictor equation (P-POSSUM) are simple scoring systems used to estimate the risk of complications and death postoperatively. We investigated the use of these scores to predict the postoperative risk in patients undergoing radical cystectomy (RC).

Impact of stage and comorbidities on five-year survival after radical cystectomy in Poland: single centre experience
Bartosz Dybowski, Krzysztof Ossoliński, Anna Ossolińska, Michał Peller, Ewa Bres-Niewada, Piotr Radziszewski
Long-term outcomes of patients treated for invasive bladder cancer in Poland are poorly documented in the literature. Impact of various clinical parameters on their survival is even less well studied. Radical cystectomy is a major surgery, so the patients' condition can be equally important as cancer stage. The aim of the study was to assess 5-year overall survival (OS) after cystectomy and impact of comorbidity on OS in a single Polish academic centre.

Bladder injury secondary to obturator reflex is more common with plasmakinetic transurethral resection than monopolar transurethral resection of bladder cancer
Kutan Ozer, Mustafa Horsanali, Sacit Nuri Gorgel, Emin Ozbek
Transurethral resection (TUR) is the most common surgical technique for the diagnosis and initial treatment of bladder cancer. In this study we evaluated each two technics in terms of bladder injury due to obturatory reflex in patients that underwent TUR for nonmuscle invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC).

Optimizing the formation of vesicourethral anastomosis and reduction of procedure time. A two-year experience with a modified technique for endoscopic running vesicourethral anastomosis
Tomasz Golabek, Tomasz Wiatr, Mikolaj Przydacz, Jakub Bukowczan, Przemyslaw Dudek, Robert Sobczynski, Katarzyna Golabek, Piotr L. Chłosta
Creation of a watertight vesicourethral anastomosis is a challenging and time-consuming procedure. In an attempt to simplify this critical step of radical prostatectomy we have developed a laparoscopic running single suture technique and presented preliminary results previously. Here we report our two-year experience with the Chlosta's single running suture technique.

Biochemical recurrence risk factors in surgically treated high and very high-risk prostate tumors
Alfredo Aguilera, Beatriz Banuelos, Jesús Díez, Jose María Alonso-Dorrego, Jesus Cisneros, Javier Pena
High and very high-risk prostate cancers are tumours that display great variation in their progression, making their behaviour and consequent prognosis difficult to predict. We analyse preoperative and postoperative risk factors that could influence biochemical recurrence for these tumours.

Modified technique of cavoatrial tumor thrombectomy without cardiopulmonary by-pass and hypothermic circulatory arrest: a preliminary report
Robert Sobczyński, Tomasz Golabek, Mikolaj Przydacz, Tomasz Wiatr, Jakub Bukowczan, Jerzy Sadowski, Piotr Chłosta
Traditionally tumour thrombus extending into the right atrium has been managed by open surgery with sternotomy, cardiopulmonary bypass circulation and hypothermic circulatory arrest, and is associated with significant morbidity and mortality rates. Here, we evaluate the results of cavoatrial thrombectomy using our own, Foley catheter assisted technique, obviating need for thoracotomy, extracorporeal circulation, and/or hypothermic circulatory arrest.

Macroscopic hematuria in patients on anticoagulation therapy
Boris Seryozhev Mladenov, Valeri Mariyanovski, Valeria Hadzhiyska
Visible hematuria is not rare in patients on anticoagulant therapy. There is no consensus on the diagnostic approach for them, some authors suggest restricted volume of diagnostic procedures because of the low number of urological etiology found. Some antibiotics have been reported to potentiate the effect of oral anticoagulants.

Despite improvements in surgical techniques and implementation of minimally invasive procedures, male stress urinary incontinence affects a substantial number of patients after prostatic surgery. In response to increasing demand of optimal treatment modality, new alternatives to artificial urinary sphincter have recently been introduced. This review summarises the therapeutic surgical options with their outcomes in management of postprostatectomy stress incontinence.

The first laparoscopic (LA) dismembered pyeloplasty presented in 1993 years, William Schuessler and Louis Kavoussi. Since then surgery has evolved over the years. Currently, most treatments are performed by transperitoneal access using the Anderson-Hynes technique. In 1997, a minilaparoscopy (ML) with 3- and 2-mm instruments was introduced having good cosmetic and post-operative pain results and maintaning the same functional results as LA. 2nd Dissected UPJ. 6th Suturing the posterior wall.

The treatment of ureteropelvic junction has evolved considerably over the past 20 years, resulting in new surgical techniques, but traditional open surgery remains the gold standard treatment. Nowadays, less invasive techniques are used for the treatment of ureteropelvic junction obstruction. The purpose of our study is to compare the surgical and functional results between laparoscopic and open pyeloplasty performed at our department during the last 12 years.

"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
