Impact of facility type and volume on survival in patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma
Can J Urol. 2021 Oct;28(5):10806-10816.ABSTRACTINTRODUCTION: To investigate the impact of facility type and volume on survival in patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma (mRCC).MATERIALS AND METHODS: We investigated the National Cancer Database for patients with mRCC. Patients were stratified according to treatment facility type (academic vs. non-academic) and facility volume (high, intermediate, and low). Kaplan-Meier survival estimates and Cox proportional hazard models were fitted to evaluate overall survival (OS) as a function of facility type, volume, and different treatment modalities.RESULTS: A total of 27,598...

Stereotactic body radiation therapy with simultaneous integrated boost for prostate cancer: does MRI-targeted biopsy alter the boost field?
CONCLUSIONS: Compared to systematic TRUS biopsy, implementation of prebiopsy prostate MRI and FB allows for safe and feasible SBRT in patients with significantly larger prostate volumes without increasing SIB cancer-directed treatment volumes, oncologic outcomes, quality of life measures, or treatment-related toxicities.PMID:34657654 (Source: Canadian Journal of Urology)

Prostatic urethral lift (UroLift) versus convective water vapor ablation (Rezum) for minimally invasive treatment of BPH: a comparison of improvements and durability in 3-year clinical outcomes
Can J Urol. 2021 Oct;28(5):10824-10833.ABSTRACTINTRODUCTION: Half of men aged> 60 years will develop benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) with 40% of these men having moderate-to-severe lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS). There is limited knowledge on a head-to-head comparison of prostatic urethral lift (UroLift) and convective water vapor ablation (Rezum) for the treatment of LUTS secondary to BPH. We sought to compare randomized controlled trials with 3-year clinical outcome data.MATERIALS AND METHODS: After a thorough literature search, two multicenter sham-controlled double-blind randomized trials for UroLift and Rez...

Survey of COVID-19 impact on pediatric urology services
CONCLUSIONS: Immediate steps should be taken to ensure that the recovery phases of pediatric urology practices are as efficient as possible. Institutions should develop task forces to develop critical workflow processes in the event of health crises, while still maintaining patient-centered care. This will be essential in maximizing appropriate care allocation.PMID:34657656 (Source: Canadian Journal of Urology)

Does qSOFA score predict ICU admission and outcomes in patients with obstructed infected ureteral stones?
Can J Urol. 2021 Oct;28(5):10841-10847.ABSTRACTINTRODUCTION: Obstructing stones with infection represent a true urologic emergency requiring prompt decompression. Historically the systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS) criteria has been used to predict outcomes in patients with sepsis. The quick Sequential Organ Failure Assessment (qSOFA) score has been proposed as a prognostic factor in patients with acute pyelononephritis associated with nephrolithiasis. However there has been limited application of qSOFA to patients undergoing ureteral stenting with obstructive pyelonephritis. The purpose of this study was to ev...

Lymphoceles: impact on kidney transplant recipients, graft, and healthcare system
CONCLUSION: Patients with longer dialysis times, kidneys from laparoscopic donor nephrectomy, and depleting induction therapy were associated with an increased risk for developing symptomatic lymphoceles. Our center's treatment for symptomatic lymphoceles did not result in significant graft dysfunction, but significantly higher healthcare resource utilization was noted.PMID:34657658 (Source: Canadian Journal of Urology)

Implementation of instructional videos improves nursing comfort with commonly encountered urinary catheter care scenarios
In this study, our aim was to determine factors associated with higher comfort levels for these catheter-care techniques and to assess whether online instructional videos could be used to improve nursing comfort.MATERIALS AND METHODS: Three 5-minute videos were created to demonstrate proper technique for coudé catheter placement, manual irrigation of a catheter, and management of CBI. An online module with pre- and post-video surveys was created and administered to all nursing staff at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital.RESULTS: A total of 821 nurses participated in this study and completed the online module wit...

Ureteral stenting after routine ureteroscopy: Is earlier stent removal feasible?
CONCLUSIONS: We found no difference in unplanned visits in patients based on the duration of stent placement following routine ureteroscopy. Stent removal within 3 days of surgery appears to be sufficient to minimize morbidity after uncomplicated ureteroscopy.PMID:34657660 (Source: Canadian Journal of Urology)

How I Do It: Technical report on surgically-initiated rectus sheath catheter using catheter-over-needle assembly
Can J Urol. 2021 Oct;28(5):10871-10873.ABSTRACTDevelopment of chronic postsurgical pain following major abdominal or pelvic surgeries is increasingly recognized. Multimodal analgesia including regional anesthesia such as rectus sheath block is growing in popularity. While the literature mainly describes ultrasound-guided rectus sheath blocks, there are many advantages to surgically-initiated rectus sheath catheter performed at the end of surgery. In this technical description, we describe the rationale and technique of surgical insertion of rectus sheath catheters following major urologic surgery with midline incision whic...
