Objective The aim of this study was to evaluate the ability of the American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program (ACS NSQIP) surgical risk calculator to predict surgical morbidity in patients undergoing pelvic reconstructive surgery. Methods This was a retrospective study of patients who underwent pelvic reconstructive surgery from 2014 to 2017. Preoperative risk factors were abstracted from medical records and entered into the ACS NSQIP surgical risk calculator. The Current Procedural Terminology code that produced the largest risk was used and compared with actual patient outcomes. Demog...
Conclusions Patients in this database who underwent surgery with a vaginal/perineal approach were not more likely to have a postoperative complication after adjusting for age compared with those undergoing an abdominal approach. Larger studies are needed to determine a more precise estimate of the impact of surgical approach on rates of perioperative complications.
Conclusion: No clear association exists between polypropylene MUS placement and subsequent urethral diverticulum formation. Factors that diminish polypropylene mesh biocompatibility include elevated BMI, menopause, recurrent UTIs, prior pelvic surgeries, and preexisting medical conditions. Symptoms associated with urethral diverticula should prompt a complete urologic workup prior to MUS placement. PMID: 32462011 [PubMed - in process]

Purpose of review This review aims to update the studies involving the treatment of lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) in neurogenic patients, published in the last two years. Recent findings Treatment of neurogenic LUTS (NLUTS) patients with β3 adrenoreceptor agonists was investigated in real-life conditions. A randomized controlled trial compared the efficacy of antimuscarinics versus onabotulinum toxin A in neurogenic patients. The use of desmopressin to treat nocturia in multiple sclerosis patients is also reported. The long-term treatment with BontA efficacy, its discontinuation, and possible strategies to ...
Conclusions: For the first time in our knowledge, we identified national trends in ALIF utilization, outcomes, and cost using a large administrative database. Our study reaffirms prior work that has demonstrated low rates of complications, mortality, and readmission following ALIF. Level of Evidence: Level III.
Emphysematous cystitis is a rare potentially life ‐threatening condition and a distinct type of complicated lower urinary tract infection generally associated with diabetes mellitus and diagnosed radiologically. This case report presents a case of emphysematous cystitis as post hiatal hernia repair infectious complication incidentally found on CT abdomen/pelvis. AbstractEmphysematous cystitis is a rare potentially life ‐threatening condition and a distinct type of complicated lower urinary tract infection generally associated with diabetes mellitus and diagnosed radiologically.

While inflammation is an important innate defense mechanism against infection, it can also lead to local tissue damage. The trans signaling pathway of interleukin (IL)-6 is a known mediator of inflammation. We hypothesized that the trans IL-6 signaling pathway is associated with the development of post febrile urinary tract infection (UTI) renal scarring.

Bladder diverticula are herniations of the bladder urothelium resulting in a thin diverticular wall consisting of mucosa, lamina propria, adventitia, and, in some instances, non-functioning detrusor muscle fibers. They can be congenital, or more commonly acquired. Bladder diverticula are often asymptomatic and are usually first noted as incidental findings on cystoscopy or radiographic imaging. However, large diverticula can be responsible for symptoms such as recurrent urinary tract infections, bladder stones, hematuria, and ureteral obstruction.
