Flank positioning has the potential to improve outcomes and decrease complications not only in patients with obesity and pulmonary compromise, but  also in a subgroup of patients with certain anomalies who are at higher risk for visceral injury. Mobility of the kidney during tract dilatation, although rare, is a drawback associated with the flank position. Renal mobility may result in short dilatation and failure to enter the calyceal system. Using a bi-prong forceps to dissect and dilate the tract under direct endoscopic vision as well as telescopic dilatation are salvage techniques to overcome kidney mobility. (Sour...

Editorial Comment
For nontraumatic and longer strictures of the anterior urethra the role of genital skin flaps has decreased slowly in the last 20 years. Flaps are now reserved for complex and post-radiation strictures.1 Today oral mucosal grafts have gained popularity as the material of choice for augmentation in most cases.

Editorial Comment
Anterior urethral strictures present a reconstructive challenge. Various techniques have been developed to improve the chances of long-term urethral patency, including oral mucosa grafts. Although harvesting buccal mucosa is an expedient technique which is cost-effective and done easily by reconstructive urologists, it is not a perfect solution and complications can arise.

The comments adequately indicate the scenario. Currently many patients may require TEOMG, particularly patients who refuse mouth graft harvesting, patients with a congenitally small mouth, ie the Chinese population,1 patients with a small mouth opening due to previous trauma or surgery in the mandibular arch, patients requiring large bilateral graft harvesting, which represents a significant predictor of patient dissatisfaction (reference 24 in article), patients requiring large rectangular graft harvesting for 2-stage urethroplasty and patients with recurrent urethral stricture who have already undergone graft harvesting ...

This study is important as many have placed their faith in MRI to avoid unnecessary prostate biopsies. Perhaps it was misplaced? Further, increasingly we are learning that MRI is significantly operator dependent, adding yet another variable to the use of this technology to avoid biopsy. So how do we incorporate the results of the PROMIS trial (reference 8 in article) and this study, which are really from centers of experience, if not excellence? (Source: The Journal of Urology)

Editorial Comment
The consequences of radical orchiectomy in a young man are substantial, including psychological distress,1 reduced fertility and an increased risk of testicular failure.2 If the testis could be preserved in the 5% to 10% cases of benign lesions which present as a testicular mass, these consequences may be avoided. Unfortunately it is not yet possible to accurately diagnose benign masses preoperatively. (Source: The Journal of Urology)

Routine monitoring of PROs in cancer has been associated with decreased emergency room visits as  well as improved HRQOL, patient-physician communication and even overall survival in patients with metastatic cancer.1 In bladder cancer PRO use may be limited by the variety of disease states, various PRO instruments and perhaps most importantly by time.

Prenatal Hydronephrosis: Another Swing of the Pendulum?
Without question the recognition of prenatal hydronephrosis as a diagnostic tool has revolutionized pediatric urology and been of great benefit to our patients. However, one must also acknowledge that the diagnosis comes with significant burdens. Beyond the considerable economic costs there is the anxiety experienced by expectant parents and the physical toll of numerous imaging studies inflicted on these infants and young children. Finding the right balance between not wanting to miss a significant anatomical obstruction and limiting excessive testing and intervention has been a constant challenge with moving goalposts an...
