Children with vesico-ureteric reflux have joint hypermobility and occasional TNXB sequence variants.
Abstract INTRODUCTION: To consider alternative mechanisms that give rise to a refluxing uretero-vesical junction (UVJ), we hypothesized that children with a common heritable urinary tract defect, vesico-ureteric reflux (VUR), may have a defect in the extracellular matrix composition of the UVJ and other tissues that would be revealed by assessment of the peripheral joints. Hypermobile joints can arise from defects in the extracellular matrix within the joint capsule that affect proteins, including Tenascin XB. METHODS: We performed an observational study of children with familial and non-familial VUR to deter...

A Canadian consensus forum on the management of patients with advanced prostate cancer.
CONCLUSIONS: A Canadian consensus forum in PCa identified areas of agreement in nearly 50% of questions discussed. Areas of variability may represent opportunities for further research, education, and sharing of best practices. These findings reinforce the value of multidisciplinary consensus initiatives to optimize patient care.

The effect of travel distance on health-related quality of life for patients with nephrolithiasis.
CONCLUSIONS: Stone disease imposes significant burden on patients' HRQOL due to a variety of factors. Patients with active stone symptoms report worse HRQOL with increased distance to their treatment site. Possible etiologies include travel burden, increased disease burden, decreased healthcare use, and delays in care.

Direct to cystoscopy: A prospective quality assessment of patient preferences.
Abstract INTRODUCTION: Cystourethroscopy is one of the most common procedures performed by urologists in both office and operative settings. With the recent centralization of cystoscopy at our center, we looked to assess our current delivery model, to determine whether patients prefer their initial visit to be in cystoscopy, or in the clinic, followed by a cystoscopy appointment later. METHODS: We administered 500 prospective questionnaires to adults undergoing cystoscopy by 14 urologists at our center in 2017. Patient demographics were collected, along with their questionnaire results that we compared to the...

Evaluating the measurement properties of the 26-item Expanded Prostate Cancer Index Composite (EPIC-26) with a multicenter cohort.
CONCLUSIONS: The EPIC-26 demonstrated poor construct validity, adequate reliability, and large ceiling effects. Several issues were observed, suggesting that the instrument's five domains were not well-defined by their respective items. The original EPIC's conceptual framework should be reviewed and the shortened instrument revised to improve its performance for measuring post-treatment quality of life.

Gender disparity within academic Canadian urology.
CONCLUSIONS: There is an increasing number of women completing residency in urology, although there are disproportionally fewer female urologists at senior academic positions. Significant differences were found in the h-index, publication count, and citation number between male and female urologists. When using the m-quotient to adjust for temporal bias, no significant differences were found between the gender in terms of academic output.

CONCLUSIONS: There has been recent passive centralization of RC to higher-volume providers in the province of Ontario with measurable improvements in processes of quality care. Although centralization was also associated with improvement in CSS, in the most recent era, there continues to be low-volume providers with a residual volume-outcome effect.

CONCLUSIONS: Based on mostly very low-quality evidence for most comparisons and outcomes, we are uncertain about the effect of nearly all medical and surgical interventions to treat stone disease in children.

Techniques ‒ Ultrasound-guided percutaneous nephrolithotomy: How we do it.
Abstract Ultrasonography has emerged as an alternative to fluoroscopy for image-guided guided PCNL (F-PCNL), ultrasound-guided PCNL (US-PCNL) is easier to learn and reduces radiation exposure to patients and providers. Despite these advantages, uptake of ultrasound-guided PCNL (US-PCNL) in Canada has been almost nonexistent, largely because it is not incorporated into urologists' training. In this article, we seek to familiarize Canadian urologists with this approach by describing our step-by-step technique for US-PCNL. Additionally, we provide keys to successful implementation of percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCN...

Abstract INTRODUCTION: We aimed to evaluate the impact of non-refluxing hydroureter on the initial management of high-grade hydronephrosis (HGH) management. Moreover, we evaluated the occurrence of febrile urinary tract infection (FUTI) and surgical intervention for conservatively managed units.

Survival outcomes for patients with surgically induced end-stage renal disease.
Abstract INTRODUCTION: While medically induced end-stage renal disease (m-ESRD) has been well-studied, outcomes in patients with surgically induced ESRD (s-ESRD) are unknown. We sought to quantitatively compare the non-oncological outcomes for s-ESRD and m-ESRD in a large population-based cohort. METHODS: Medicare patients>65 years old initiating hemodialysis were identified using the U.S. Renal Data System database (2000‒2012). Metastatic cancer, prior transplant history, and nephrectomy for polycystic kidney disease were exclusion criteria. Patients were classified as having s-ESRD or m-ESRD based on h...

Comprehensive analysis of in-hospital delirium after major surgical oncology procedures.
We examined the temporal trends of delirium following 10 MSOPs, as well as patient and hospital delirium risk factors. Finally, we examined the effect of delirium on length of stay, in-hospital mortality, and hospital charges. METHODS: We retrospectively identified patients who underwent prostatectomy, colectomy, cystectomy, mastectomy, gastrectomy, hysterectomy, nephrectomy, oophorectomy, lung resection, or pancreatectomy within the Nationwide Inpatient Sample (2003‒2013). We yielded a weighted estimate of 3 431 632 patients. Multivariable logistic regression (MLR) analyses identified the determinants of postoperat...

Abstract INTRODUCTION: Renal transplantation is the optimal treatment for end-stage renal disease, but organ demand continues to outstrip supply. The transplantation of kidneys from donors with small renal masses (SRMs) represents a potential avenue to expand the donor pool. We reviewed all published cases of transplants from donors with SRMs and we present followup data, best practices, and outline an actionable series of steps to guide the implementation of such transplants at individual centres.
