The understated issue of caregiver anxiety for pediatric surgical hospital admissions: opening the blindfolds
AbstractKey messageHospitalization is a nerve-wrecking experience for patients and their families (Lam et al. in Int J Nurs Stud 43:535 –545, 2006). The financial burden of hospitalization is the prime perpetrator, however, multiple other factors also contribute significantly to the underlying problem which can be eliminated by efforts of the doctors and other healthcare workers and by modifying the hospital policies (Bassett et a l. in J Hosp Med 15:652–658, 2020). We can reduce the number of outpatient visits and switch to telemedicine for rescheduling the cases. The pre-anaesthetic clearance and all the relevant inv...

Complex perirectal abscess of urethral origin
Rev Esp Enferm Dig. 2023 Jan 25;115. doi: 10.17235/reed.2023.9456/2023. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTA 50-year-old male, with a medical history of Lynch syndrome and transurethral-resection (TUR) secondary to multifocal bladder tumour (pT1-high grade) with normal subsequent follow-ups, consulted for anal pain, rectal tenesmus and fever for 3 weeks. On examination, he presented perianal oedema and, on digital rectal examination, a right lateral orifice was palpable at 6cm from the anal margin. CT scan revealed a defect-in-continuity in the right rectal wall which communicated with bilateral perirectal collections extending...

Retrospective analysis of 1470-/980-nm dual-wavelength laser en bloc resection versus transurethral resection of bladder tumor for primary non-muscle-invasive bladder cancer
AbstractTo compare the safety and efficacy of en bloc resection of non-muscle-invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC) using a 1470-/980-nm dual-wavelength laser (DwLRBT) compared to the gold standard, transurethral resection (TURBT). The study group included 251 patients with a confirmed diagnosis of NMIBC, 97 in the DwLRBT group and 154 in the TURBT group. Clinical characteristics, complications, and recurrence-free survival were compared between the two groups. There were no differences between the two groups with regard to age, sex, mean tumor size, mean tumor number, tumor location, risk, fever, and reoperation. Compared to TU...

Efficacy and safety of 2-micron laser versus conventional trans-urethral resection of bladder tumor for non-muscle-invasive bladder tumor: A systematic review and meta-analysis
Conclusion: Compared with TURBT, 2-micron laser may be safer and more effective for NMIBT management. However, these conclusions need to be validated through more high-quality RCTs because of the quality limitations and publication bias of the included studies.

Guidelines on the urological management of the adult patient with spinal dysraphism (spina bifida)
CONCLUSION: Spinal dysraphism is a complex pathology with multiple neurological, orthopedic, gastrointestinal and urological involvement. The management of bladder and bowel dysfunctions must continue throughout the life of these patients and must be integrated into a multidisciplinary context.PMID:36609138 | DOI:10.1016/j.purol.2022.12.006 (Source: Progres en Urologie)
