Laparoscopic radical cystectomy with prostate capsule sparing. Initial experience
Juan Gómez Rivas, Sergio Alonso y Gregorio, Mario Álvarez-Maestro, Jesús Díez Sebastián, Jesús Cisneros Ledo
In 2008 our department introduced a modified technique of laparoscopic radical cystectomy in which the prostatic capsule is spared in selected patients with bladder cancer. The different series published are mostly using the standard open procedure. The aim of this study is to describe this technique using the laparoscopic approach and present our preliminary results.

Controversies in the management of clinical stage I testicular seminoma
Martina Ondrusova, Sona Balogova, Viera Lehotska, Karol Kajo, Bela Mrinakova, Dalibor Ondrus
Following orchiectomy patients with clinical stage I testicular seminoma may be managed by surveillance or adjuvant treatment (radiotherapy or chemotherapy). In view of the published data on long-term toxicity (mainly second neoplasms), adjuvant radiotherapy is currently no longer recommended as adjuvant therapy of these patients. The purpose of our recent study was to compare the impact of two selected treatment approaches (active surveillance vs adjuvant chemotherapy) in patients with clinical stage I testicular seminoma on their survival.

The detection and upgrade rates of prostate adenocarcinoma following transperineal template-guided prostate biopsy - a tertiary referral centre experience
David Muthuveloe, Robert Telford, Richard Viney, Prashant Patel
We aim to present the transperineal template guided prostate biopsy (template biopsy) outcomes at a tertiary referral centre. Furthermore to identify the detection rate of prostate cancer in those with a previous negative transrectal ultrasound guided prostate (TRUS) biopsy and the upgrade rate of those on active surveillance (AS) for Gleason 3+3=6 prostate adenocarcinoma.

Quality of life in a population of Polish patients with prostate cancer
Piotr Kutwin, Tomasz Konecki, Zbigniew Jabłonowski, Zbigniew Wolski, Marek Sosnowski
Recent advances in treatment have led to the prolongation of life among patients with prostate cancer (PCa), which implies greater interest in the issue of the quality of life (QoL) in patients who undergo treatment. The quality of life of patients with cancer questionnaire (QLQ-C30) and the quality of life questionnaire specific to the PCa (QLQ-PR25) are tools used worldwide to conduct research on this subject. In our study we assessed the quality of life in the population of Polish patients suffering from prostate cancer

The aim of the present study is to evaluate the influence of clinicopathological factors including age, gender, tumor grade, tumor stage, lymphovascular invasion (LVI), tumor necrosis and previous history of non-muscle invasive bladder cancer on outcomes of patients with upper tract urothelial carcinoma (UTUC) treated with radical nephroureterectomy (RNU).

Microarray long oligo probe designing for Escherichia coli: an in-silico DNA marker extraction
Payam Behzadi, Ali Najaf, Elham Behzadi, Reza Ranjbar
Urinary tract infections are predominant diseases which may caused by different pathogenic microorganisms, particularly Escherichia coli (E.coli). DNA microarray technology is an accurate, rapid, sensitive, and specific diagnostic tool which may lead to definite diagnosis and treatment of several infectious diseases. DNA microarray is a multi-process method in which probe designing plays an important role in this technique. Therefore, the authors of the present study have tried to design a range of effective and proper long oligo microarray probes for detection and identification of different strains of pathogenic E.coli and in particular, uropathogenic E.coli (UPEC).

Laparoscopic partial nephrectomy for non-functional lower pole kidney stone
Murat Mehmet Rifaioglu, Hani Bahaeldien Abdelgalil, Ali Serdar Gözen, Jens Rassweiler
We present a retroperitoneal laparoscopic partial nephrectomy video for a non-functional obstructed lower pole with multiple renal stones.. A 41-year-old female was admitted to our urology clinic with left-sided flank pain. The radiologic imaging (CT and IVP) revealed multiple left renal stones localized in the pelvis, middle and lower calyces. Left kidney function on scintigraphy was 20%. We performed a laparoscopic retroperitoneal three-port partial nephrectomy with stone extraction..
