CONCLUSIONS: Although preoperative use of silodosin facilitated only an insignificant positive effect on UAS placement failure, it eased the F-URS procedure by reducing the ETBT, ETUOT, and AAST in seconds. More studies are needed to make an exact conclusion. PMID: 31950923 [PubMed - in process]

For as long as I can remember, “Peeling off the layers to reveal the real” has been my credo. In a dream, the words “Bare Boldly,” echoed through my sleeping but ever so active brain.” When messages come through that insistently, they can’t be ignored. My inner and outer work as a hybrid therapist-journalist prepare me to take this on every day. When that happens, I question if I am too self-revealing. Last year, I penned an article for Psych Central called When A Therapist and Journalist Comes Clean About Her Self Doubt. It takes a confessional tone as I admit that the way I present isn...

I'm a PGY-1, and with half of the year done and about 2 months of total actual EM time done, I'm noticing some pretty big recurrent problems. I was hoping to get some advice on how to deal. Firstly, I have a really bad habit of anchoring to diagnoses. Fairly often I'll get a strong bias towards whatever diagnosis seems most likely initially. The other day, a lady with history of kidney stones came in with colicky groin pain and couldn't get comfortable in any position. I got the workup... Recurrent Performance Problems

Authors: Li L, Peng Y, Liu M, Wang Z, Wang Q, Ming S, Gao X, Sun Y Abstract Kidney stone formation is a very complex process. Multiple molecules and proteins are involved in its formation. High level of oxalate and calcium oxalate monohydrate (COM, 200 mg/ml) crystals are key elements for this process, but the exact mechanism needs to be defined. HOA has been shown to cause renal cell injury through oxidative stress, leading to potential crystal deposition in the kidneys, which induced apoptosis of kidney epithelial cells. Recent reports indicated that apurinic/apyrimidinic endonuclease 1 (APE1) is involved in DNA ...

ABSTRACT Sarcoidosis is a multisystem granulomatous disease characterized by epithelioid noncaseating granulomas associated with clinical and radiologic findings. The cause of this disease is still uncertain. Sarcoidosis affects mostly lungs and lymph nodes and is not usually considered a urological disease, therefore, this etiology may be overlooked in several urological disorders, such as hypercalcemia, hypercalciuria and nephrolithiasis. It affects all races and genders. This review aims to describe the urological manifestations of sarcoidosis and to elucidate how the disease may affect the management of numerous urological conditions.
