Substitution urethroplasty for the treatment of male urethral stricture: Outcomes in an Australian center
ConclusionsSubstitution urethroplasty has a high success rate, durable response, and high patient satisfaction. Standardization of surveillance protocol after urethroplasty is recommended.
We present the case of a 75-year-old man who presented with a symptomatic right inguinal hernia, which was found on imaging to include the right ureter. Cystoscopy to perform right ureteric stent insertion revealed bladder tumour obstructing the ipsilateral ureteric orifice. A multi-disciplinary approach involving urology, general surgery and interventional radiology was successful in achieving tumour resection, ureterolysis with preservation of ureter and inguinal hernia repair.
ConclusionDelayed urinary bladder rupture is a very rare complication of cesarean delivery. Non-operative treatment can be a viable alternative to surgical repair in carefully selected patients.
CONCLUSIONS: There appears to be little difference in success between penile urethroplasty techniques. The shift in technique to a single-stage BMG, when appropriate, appears to be founded on the basis of fewer operations for the patient, relative to a two-stage repair, and a lower complication profile, relative to single-stage PFF, without compromising success rates.

Abstract INTRODUCTION: Urethral stricture is one of the most commonly encountered complications after hypospadias repair but remains poorly described. The aim of this study is to better characterize hypospadias-associated urethral strictures (HAUS) and treatment outcomes. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective analysis of 84 patients who underwent urethroplasty (UP) for HAUS from 2003-2017. Patients were characterized with regard to demographics, stricture length, location, concurrent pathology, previous surgery, type of urethroplasty, 90-day complications, and surgical success defined as the absence of strict...
Conclusion: The transvaginal approach is less invasive and achieves comparable success rates as compared to other methods of vesico-vaginal fistula repair. This surgery with Foley catheter has a high success rate with reduced morbidity. We postulate that vaginal approach should be preferred over abdominal approach for repair of all vaginally accessible vesico vaginal fistulae, both of obstetrical and gynaecological origin.Urol Int
ConclusionsFacility complexity appears to play a role in adherence to surgical infection prevention guidelines. Lower complexity facilities with limited infection prevention and antimicrobial stewardship resources may be important targets for quality improvement. Such interventions may be especially useful for genitourinary and ear/nose/throat surgical subspecialties. Increasing pharmacy, antimicrobial stewardship and/or infection prevention resources to promote more evidence-based care may support surgical providers in lower complexity ambulatory surgery centers and hospital outpatient departments in their efforts to impr...
AbstractThis research aims to observe and compare the wound healing process of urethral bladder after transurethral holmium laser resection of bladder tumor (HoLRBT) and transurethral resection of bladder tumor (TURBT) and explore the possible mechanism of wound healing and bladder re-epithelialization after HoLRBT. An animal model of canine achieving HoLRBT and TURBT was established. Cystoscopy was performed at different time points (3 days and 1, 2, 3, and 4 weeks) after operation to observe the wound healing and re-epithelialization of bladder epithelium. Bladder mucosa specimens were obtained and histopathol...
Gynecologists debate the optimal use for intraoperative cystoscopy at the time of benign hysterectomy. Although adding cystoscopy leads to additional up-front cost, it may also enable intraoperative detection of a urinary tract injury that may otherwise go unnoticed. Prompt injury detection and intraoperative repair decreases morbidity and is less costly than postoperative diagnosis and treatment. Because urinary tract injury is rare and not easily studied in a prospective fashion, decision analysis provides a method for evaluating the cost associated with varying strategies for use of cystoscopy.

Conclusions: Robotic repair of VVF with sigmoid epiploica interposition is efficient and well tolerated. Use of this technique may increase the number of patients eligible for tissue interposition. PMID: 30662253 [PubMed - in process]
