[Mid-term safety and efficacy of high power thulium laser vaporization.]
CONCLUSIONS: In this study, high power TL-PVP is a safe and effective alternative with subjective and objective functional results that are comparable to the "gold standard" technique. It also offers a shorter hospital stay and a lower complication rate. PMID: 29099377 [PubMed - in process] (Source: Archivos Espanoles de Urologia)

Does using alprazolam during outpatient flexible cystoscopy decrease anxiety and pain?
CONCLUSIONS: Using alprazolam before flexible cystoscopy reduces both anxiety (STAI-1 vs STAI-2b) and pain (VAS-1 vs VAS-2). Previous cystoscopy experience reduces anxiety (STAI-2a vs. STAI-2b). Elderly patients have less anxiety and pain scores than younger patients in flexible cystoscopy. PMID: 29099383 [PubMed - in process] (Source: Archivos Espanoles de Urologia)

Urodynamics before surgery for stress urinary incontinence in female patients: An open debate.
In conclusion, we believe that in most patients (the "complicated" ones) the role of UDI has not been fully evaluated. In "uncomplicated" cases, pretreatment UDI might not improve clinical outcomes but it could give important informations (voiding dysfunction in about 10% of cases) offering a valuable guide to the surgeon and to the patient. Interestingly though, UDI could alter clinical decision making being a valuable tool in counseling our patients with the aim of cure their symptoms, never risking of worsening them or causing further discomfort.

CONCLUSIONS: The lithogenic risk factors more frequently detected were hipocitraturia and hypercalciuria. Therapeutic measures achieved the decrease of saturation risk indexes for all the crystals analyzed, registering significant effects in the increase of diuresis and uric acid saturation decrease.

Authors: Ruiz-Oslé S, Prol C, Lardies R, Gaafar A, Barbier L, Arruza A Abstract Renal cell carcinoma is an unpredictable malignancy. Sometimes, metastases are the disease debut. On the other hand, metastases could present years after treatment of the primary tumor. Four clinical cases of atypical metastases in the head and neck location are presented: parotid gland, mandibular bone, attached molar gingiva and masticator space.

A retrospective analysis of mathieu and tip urethroplasty techniques for distal hypospadias repair; A 20 year experience.
In this study, the records of 492 consecutive patients that had undergone an operation for distal hypospadias in the urology clinic of Ankara between May 1990 and December 2010 using either Mathieu or TIPU surgical techniques were reviewed retrospectively. The patients who had glanular, coronal, and subcoronal meatus, were accepted as distal hypospadias cases. Among the 492 examined medical records, it was revealed that 331 and 161 surgical interventions were performed by using the Mathieu urethroplasty technique (Group-1) and TIP urethroplasty technique (Group-2), respectively. Group-1 was divided into two subgroups; name...

CONCLUSIONS: Surgical treatment of renal cancer with venous thrombus requires a multidisciplinary management. The surgical technique varies according to the level reached by the venous thrombus. Tumor stage is the most important prognostic factor. Thrombus level influences prognosis, with longer survival for patients with tumor thrombus confined to the renal vein (pT3a) in comparison to tumors with thrombus in the atrium (pT3c).
