Increasing detection of significant prostate cancer in younger men - ten year trends in prostate cancer risk profile in the Mid-west of Ireland
Nikita R. Bhatt, Tetyana Kelly, Kasia Domanska, Colette Fogarty, Garrett Durkan, Hugh D. Flood, Subhasis K. Giri
Although PSA (prostate specific antigen) based screening for prostate cancer (Pca) is con-troversial, an increasing number of men are undergoing Transrectal Ultrasound Guided prostate biopsy(TRUSPB) through primary care-based PSA testing and referral to hospitals. The aim of our study was to in-vestigate presenting risk profiles of PCa over the last decade in a cohort of men in Ireland and to examine any change in the same over this time period.

Currently alpha1-adrenoceptor blockers (AB) are widely used as first-line therapy to improve lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) associated with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). We compared the efficacy and safety profile of tamsulosin, alfuzosin and silodosin in LUTS due to BPH.

Ureteroscopy for stone disease: expanding roles in the modern era
Adrian Ho, Piyush Sarmah, Ewa Bres-Niewada, Bhaskar K. Somani
The prevalence of urolithiasis is increasing worldwide and is causing significant morbidity and cost to the healthcare systems. While ureteroscopy (URS) has been established as a treatment option, our review highlights the expanding role of URS for the management of more complex stones and patients
in the modern era.

Open Stone Surgery: Still-in-Use Approach for Complex Stone Burden
Ozer Ural Cakici, Kemal Ener, Murat Keske, Serkan Altinova, Abdullah Erdem Canda, Mustafa Aldemir, Arslan Ardicoglu
Urinary stone disease is a major urological condition. Endourologic techniques have influenced the clinical approach and outcomes. Open surgery holds a historic importance in the management of most conditions. However, complex kidney stone burden may be amenable to successful results with open stone surgery. In this article, we report our eighteen cases of complex urinary stone disease who underwent open stone removal.

Extended boari-flap technique as a reconstruction method of total ureteric avulsion
Paweł Grzegółkowski, Artur Lemiński, Marcin Słojewski
The ureteral avulsion is an uncommon severe urological complication of ureteroscopy (URS). Surgery in patients with a total ureteral loss is a demanding challenge for urologist. We have presented a case of 58-year-old male patient who underwent a successful repair of an upper ureteral injury. We have described the effectiveness of an extended Boari-flap procedure for reconstruction after iatrogenic ureteral trauma.

Frailty and elderly in urology: Is there an impact on post-operative complications?
Fabrizio Dal Moro, Alessandro Morlacco, Giovanni Motterle, Lisa Barbieri, Filiberto Zattoni
Frailty used as predictive tool is still not carried out in daily practice, although many studies confirm the great clinical importance of the frailty syndrome in surgical outcomes. There is no standardized method of measuring the physiological reserves of older surgical patients.

Basic Issues Concerning Health-Related Quality of Life

Chronic diseases such as cancer have a strong influence on both physical health and quality of life, which together comprise the concept of health-related quality of life (HRQoL)—in other words, the complete state of physical, social, and psychological functioning. Herein, we review the literature on the theory of HRQoL in relation to oncological diseases.

A prospective evaluation of surgical outcomes of laparoscopic transperitoneal radical prostatectomy in obese patients: our experience
Anup Kumar, Niraj Kumar, Gaurav Kumar, Mikir Patel, Pankaj Gupta
Laparoscopic transperitoneal radical prostatectomy (LRP) is technically challenging in obese patients especially in those with a narrow and deep pelvis. We prospectively evaluated the surgical outcomes of laparoscopic transperitoneal radical prostatectomy in obese patients.. All consecutive patients with BMI ≥30 kg/m2 who underwent LRP for localized prostate cancer by a single surgeon between January 2013 and May 2016 at our institution were included. The mean BMI was 31.74 kg/m2.

Laparoscopic transperitoneal partial nephrectomy for clinical T1b renal tumors: A prospective evaluation
Anup Kumar, Niraj Kumar, Gaurav Kumar, Mikir Patel, Pankaj Gupta
The role of partial nephrectomy in clinical T1b renal tumors is still not established. Laparoscopic partial nephrectomy for clinical T1b renal tumors is a technically challenging procedure. We prospectively evaluated the feasibility, safety, efficacy, and long term oncological results of laparoscopic transperitoneal partial nephrectomy(LPN) in clinical T1b renal tumors.. were included in the study. The mean tumor size was 5.1 cm. The mean ischemia time was 21.3 min.

A prospective evaluation of surgical outcomes of laparoscopic transperitoneal radical cystectomy/anterior pelvic exenteration: our surgical technique and experience
Anup Kumar, Niraj Kumar, Gaurav Kumar, Mikir Patel, Pankaj Gupta
Laparoscopic transperitoneal radical cystectomy/anterior pelvic exenteration is technically challenging, confined to centers with advanced laparoscopic expertise. We prospectively evaluated the surgical outcomes of laparoscopic transperitoneal radical cystectomy/anterior pelvic exenteration (LRC) with extracorporeal urinary diversion in patients with muscle-invasive carcinoma of the urinary bladder.. The demographic, peri-operative, postoperative and follow up data were collected and analyzed.

Different treatment approaches after failure of laparascopic treatment of calyceal diverticulum confused with communicating-type renal cyst: Case report
Ayhan Dirim, ERAY HASIRCI, Yuksel Cem Aygun
The term calyceal diverticulum refers to a urine-containing cystic cavity within the renal parenchyma. The calyceal diverticulum is lined by transitional epithelium and communicating with the collecting system via a narrow isthmus or infundibulum. Demonstrating a connection between this fluid-filled space and pelvicalyceal system in contrast studies, such as com¬puted tomography or urography is the key diagnostic finding. There are two recognised types.

Dear Friends,

I would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 2018! I hope that this holiday season will bring you time to relax and reflect upon the past year.

The medical profession brings many possibilites for new ventures and in a certain way predisposes us to this.

We as doctors have many important roles to fulfill, usually simultaneously, such as those of: therapists, operators, scientists, managers, lecturers, publishers, editors, authors, and association members. The number of our endeavours is undoubtedly larger and continues to impress me.

Please forgive me for a short personal digression. Once, I met the children of a prominent surgeon and scientist, who was committed to his patients and whose achievements I had read about in journals. I asked them what kind of a person he was on a daily basis and what did he pass on to them, the next generation? "Dad? He went to work early in the morning, came home late at night, and on Sundays he needed his rest. We barely knew him".

Therefore, I would like to wish you all of the best and that during this holiday season you are able to spend quality time with your families and those closest to you. In time, everything will pass; our successors and new methods and techniques will arrive. Grateful patients will soon forget, and only we will remain, in the memories of our loved ones.


Kindest regards,
Tomasz Drewa
