Comparison of < sup > 68 < /sup > Ga-PSMA-I/T PET-CT and Multiparametric MRI for Locoregional Staging of Prostate Cancer Patients: A Pilot Study
Conclusion: mp-MRI has superior specificity, sensitivity, and accuracy for assessing ECE and SVI. Both imaging modalities had similar specificity, sensitivity, and accuracy for determining BNI. However, both imaging modalities had low diagnostic accuracy for LNM on histopathology.Urol Int (Source: Urologia Internationalis)

Kidney Autotransplantation in a 78-Year-Old Man with Proximal Ureteral Urothelial Carcinoma after Living Donor Nephrectomy
Six years after living donor nephrectomy to his daughter, the 78-year-old donor presented to the emergency room with anuria for approximately 12 h. Only arterial hypertension, mildly reduced kidney function (eGFR 54 mL/min), and benign prostatic hyperplasia were known as preexisting medical conditions. In sonography, hydronephrosis III ° was visible in the right single kidney. Ureterorenoscopy revealed an occlusive tumor in the right proximal ureter, which was treated via double J stent. Biopsy showed focal invasive papillary urothelial carcinoma of G2 high grade. Preoperative staging did not show any signs of lymph no...

Surgical Management of Youssef ’s Syndrome: A Case Report
We describe a case report of a woman who developed a delayed Youssef’s syndrome 3 months after her third Cesarean section. She was initially post-operatively treated conservatively and successfully for a bladder leakage through the wound with a bladder catheter for 1 month, and 2 months late r, she developed symptoms as described above. She was successfully treated with uterus-sparing surgical fistula repair. Youssef’s syndrome is a rare and atypical presentation. Physicians may easily be misled and diagnosis delayed.

Clinically Differentiated Abnormalities of the Architecture and Expression of Myosin Isoforms of the Human Cremaster Muscle in Cryptorchidism and Retractile Testis
Conclusions: The CM differs from the skeletal muscles both for morphological and molecular characteristics. The presence of fascicles with different characterization and its myosinic pattern suggested that the CM could be included in the specialized muscle groups, such as the extrinsic ocular muscles (EOMs) and laryngeal and masticatory muscles. The embryological origin from the nonsomitic mesoderm is, also for the CM, the basis of distinct molecular pathways. In UDT, the histological alterations of CM are suggestive of denervation; the genitofemoral nerve and its molecular messengers directed to this muscle are likely def...

Association between PD-L1 Expression and the Prognosis and Clinicopathologic Features of Renal Cell Carcinoma: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis
The expression of programmed cell death-ligand 1 (PD-L1) and its correlation with the prognosis and clinicopathologic features of renal cell carcinoma (RCC) remain controversial to date. Concerning this issue, we had conducted a meta-analysis of relevant studies searched in the Web of Science, PubMed, EMBASE, and Cochrane Library databases. The Newcastle-Ottawa quality assessment scale was applied to assess the quality of the included studies.

Urologists and pathologists are encouraged to work together to give a precise sub-stage classification of T1 BC, and T1 sub-staging system should be a routine part of any histopathological report when possible.

Bacillus Calmette-Gu érin in Immunosuppressed Patient with High-Grade Nonmuscle Invasive Bladder Carcinoma
Due to their immunosuppressed status, solid organ transplant recipients are a special group of patients with an incidence of bladder cancer greater than the rest of the population, especially in the first 6 years after transplantation. Also, treatment with Bacillus Calmette-Gu érin, a reference therapy in nonmuscle invasive high-risk bladder cancer, may be less effective in this group of patients and could cause more adverse effects.

Surgical cure of OAB and UAB is inconsistent with existing definitions, which imply pathogenesis of the detrusor muscle itself.
