AbstractPurpose of ReviewHerein we report a systematic review of literature to identify the contemporary focus areas of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) use in benign Urology and present the highest yield results.Recent FindingsMRI, specifically upright MRI, in combination with proper instructions and repeated Valsalva maneuvers, allows for more objective assessment of pelvic organ prolapse (POP) staging. The lack of standardization of reference lines and points used in MRI evaluation of POP is a key limitation. Evaluation of prostate artery embolization (PAE) as an effective treatment for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH...

AbstractPurposeRez ūm is the latest developed minimally invasive treatment for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). We aimed to carefully assess the functional outcomes of patients treated with Rezūm for BPH.MethodsWe prospectively followed 135 consecutive patients treated by Rez ūm at 5 institutions from June 2019 to August 2020. The International Prostate Symptom Score (IPSS), International Consultation on Incontinence Questionnaire-Short Form (ICIQ-UI SF), the Overactive Bladder Questionnaire-Short Form (OAB-q SF) score, the International Index of Erectile Function (IIEF -5) and questions 9 and 10 to assess ejaculator...

CONCLUSIONS: Evaluation of men with IPT should include determining components of SUI and UUI as these will direct medical and surgical therapy. While advances in surgical technique and technology have reduced prevalence of SUI after RP, many men still require treatment. Surgical treatments with AUS and male urethral sling provide excellent outcomes in well selected patients. PMID: 32876001 [PubMed - in process]

Robot-assisted radical prostatectomy (RARP) has fewer complications as compared to conventional techniques; however, cases of stress urinary incontinence (SUI) and overactive bladder (OAB) are still observed following RARP. Intravesical prostatic protrusion (IPP) has been reported to correlate with dysuria due to benign prostatic hyperplasia. Therefore, in this study, we aimed to assess the potential of IPP as a predictor of the occurrence of postoperative SUI and OAB.

CONCLUSION: Many patients with OAB seek initial evaluation and treatment from their family physicians. Optimal management of OAB by family physicians will improve patients' quality of life. More severe cases or 'red flags' uncovered while making the diagnosis, might warrant referral to a urologist. PMID: 29151006 [PubMed - in process]

As men age, the simple act of urinating can get complicated. Prostate surgery often leaves men vulnerable to leakage when they cough, sneeze, or just rise from a chair. Or the bladder may become impatient, suddenly demanding that you find a bathroom right now. “Thousands of years ago, it was not as much of an issue,” observes Dr. Anurag Das, a urologist at Harvard-affiliated Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. “There were lots of trees, and you could just find one and go.” But tricky bladders can be whipped into shape. The first step is a careful assessment of what triggers those difficult moments...
