AbstractPurpose of ReviewTo describe the epidemiology, pathogenesis, and management of vesicourethral anastomotic stenosis after prostate cancer treatment.Recent FindingsInjectable scar modulating agents administered at the time of direct visual internal urethrotomy of vesicourethral anastomotic stenoses have been shown to improve endoscopic treatment outcomes. Trials are ongoing to find the optimal agent and delivery system. Novel tissue engineering techniques are in development and hold promise.SummaryVesicourethral anastomotic stenosis after the treatment of prostate cancer is a challenging complication for patients and...
CONCLUSION: The results of this study demonstrated no difference between the monopolar loop and PK Button in regard to overall complications; however, there was a higher rate of bladder perforation with monopolar TURBT. PK Button vaporization for bladder tumors represents a promising alternative to traditional monopolar TURBT without compromising short term (3 month) cancer recurrence rates.

CONCLUSIONS: According to our review no technique may be considered better than the other when treating large adenomas. Studies are still lacking to prove long term efficacy and future studies should clarify the role of prostatic artery embolization and minimally invasive simple prostatectomy in the management of prostates larger than 80 ml.

CONCLUSION: This pilot trial suggests TTNS is feasible to be performed at home in people with chronic SCI. Participants were able to reduce anticholinergic medication dosage and anticholinergic side effects while maintaining continence, subsequently improving QoL scores. These results advocate for further randomized, controlled trials with longer duration and urodynamic evaluation to assess long-term efficacy. PMID: 31607105 [PubMed]

In conclusion, the Memokath®045 stent is a minimally invasive technique with faster recovery time compared to other techniques such as bladder neck reconstruction or urinary diversion. Additionally, it provides superior patency results compared to other techniques such as bladder neck incision and injection of Mitomycin C. Therefore, this management option should be considered in the management of VUAS.

Many types of catheters are available in market for clean intermittent catheterization(CIC). Each company claim superiority of their products but strong evidence is lacking
Conclusions: This series presents our laparoscopic technique for continent urinary diversions, showing that it is feasible and safe in adult patients with neurogenic bladder.
