[The volume of urological knowledge in the last 25 years.]
Authors: Gelabert Mas A Abstract Few specialties have gone through as many transitions in the last decades as Urology. Progressive physiology advances in several disease have become part of the urological knowledge. Laparoscopic surgery and ESWL (Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy) wave have completely turn upside down the whole management of disease. The current text provides a back to the future sigh into Urology. PMID: 32633243 [PubMed - in process] (Source: Archivos Espanoles de Urologia)

CONCLUSIONS: PAX8 is a useful antibody to confirm the presence of vas deferens in artifacted vasectomy specimens. CD34 and ERG are negative in the epithelium,and, otherwise, they are expressed by vascular endothelium, with the advantage of nuclear staining pattern for ERG. CD31, a classic endothelial marker, is not so specific as it had been stated as it shows weak or moderate expression in the vas deferens epithelium.
