Significant Rate of Lower Urinary Tract Dysfunction in Patients with Sacrococcygeal Teratomas
Sacrococcygeal teratoma (SCT) is the most commonly occurring presacral tumor and can affect the lower urinary tract by direct mass effect, or as a sequela from surgical resection. Despite the potential impact on urologic function, there is no current standard for urological involvement or follow-up for these patients. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the need for urologic involvement for lower urinary tract dysfunction (LUTD) in patients with SCTs at our institution. (Source: Journal of Pediatric Urology)

Commentary to "Renal Ultrasound to evaluate for blunt renal trauma in children: A retrospective comparison to contrast enhanced CT imaging"
The use of a triple-phase CT imaging for the evaluation of blunt abdominal trauma has significantly decreased over the most recent decade. [1] Indeed, newer approaches to the traumatically injured patient with the use of FAST (focal abdominal sonogram for trauma), the use of serial physical evaluations of the patients while in the emergency room and when indicated the use of a split-dose contrast-enhanced single imaging CT scan, is currently the standard of care at most institutions. [2] This methodologic sequence significantly reduces the exposure of the patient to excessive radiation dosage, and has the added benefit of ...

Continence after BNR in the Complete Repair of Bladder Exstrophy (CPRE): A Single Institution Expanded Experience
Several surgical methods have been used for primary repair of bladder exstrophy in the newborn. Complete primary repair of exstrophy (CPRE) aims to prevent the need for surgeries beyond the newborn period. Due to the rarity of bladder exstrophy, it has proven difficult in the past to analyze whether use of this method of closure truly does confer acceptable continence outcomes and hence minimizes the requirement for additional surgeries later in life.

Impact of COVID-19 on the future of Pediatric Urology practice. Do guidelines apply to medical practice worldwide?
After the announcement of the World Health Organization, where COVID-19 was declared a pandemic, healthcare systems in Europe and North America collapsed due to an overwhelming number of critical cases requiring management. Some countries in the western hemisphere that had not been hit so severely were able to prepare and allocate resources in order to avoid a saturation of their systems. The American College of Surgeons published their guidelines about how to prioritize and triage surgical management including cessation of elective surgery (1). (Source: Journal of Pediatric Urology)

Authors present a comprehensive long-term follow-up of patients diagnosed with Nutcracker syndrome (1). As it is discussed in their article, usually the Nutcracker syndrome should be treated conservatively considering how challenging the surgical options can be. However, in cases in which patients become symptomatic with persisting hematuria, dyspareunia, dysuria or dysmenorrhea due to ovarian plexus congestion or varicocele, surgical treatment should be offered(2). Nonetheless, current surgical options are technically demanding and very invasive with significant morbidity. (Source: Journal of Pediatric Urology)

Use of retrograde pyelogram to plan for miniature open incision in pediatric pyeloplasty
As robotic-assisted surgery becomes increasingly utilized for pediatric ureteropelvic junction (UPJ) obstruction, open surgeons have countered by using muscle-splitting, miniature ( ≤2cm) incisions. To prepare for this type of incision during pyeloplasty, it is necessary to define the exact location of the UPJ. The use of retrograde pyelogram (RPG) at the time of pyeloplasty helps the surgeon to identify the exact location of UPJ, and thus be able to use a muscle-splitting, m iniature incision for open pyeloplasty.

Correspondence: The spectrum of testicular-epididymal fusion anomalies in children with cryptorchidism: personal experience, systematic review and meta-analysis
Cryptorchidism occurs in 2-8% of boys, and cases who do not spontaneously resolve by age 1 require orchidopexy1. During orchidopexy it is common (15-40% in single center series) to encounter testicular-epididymal fusion abnormalities (TEFA), which may include isolated epididymal head or tail non-fusions (NF) as well as complete testicular-epididymal NF2. Despite the high prevalence of TEFA, the clinical significance of these variants has not been well-studied.
