Evaluating Quality Improvement and Patient Safety Amongst Practicing Urologists: Analysis of the 2018 American Urological Association Census
Objective. To describe factors associated with QIPS participation using 2018 American Urological Association (AUA) Census data. Quality improvement and patient safety (QIPS) have become increasingly important in medicine. However, studies about QIPS in urology suggest low levels of participation, with little known about factors predicting non-participation.Methods. Results from 2,339 census respondents were weighted to estimate 12,660 practicing urologists in the United States. Our primary outcome was participation in QIPS. (Source: Urology)

Factors Influencing the Decision for Fresh Versus Cryopreserved Microdissection Testicular Sperm Extraction for Non-Obstructive Azoospermia
OBJECTIVE: To determine reproductive urologists ’ (RU) practice patterns for microdissection testicular sperm extraction (microTESE) and factors associated with use of fresh versus frozen microTESE for non-obstructive azoospermia (NOA).MATERIALS AND METHODS: We electronically surveyed Society for Study of Male Reproduction members with a 21-ite m questionnaire. Our primary outcomes were to determine RU preference for fresh or frozen microTESE and to understand barriers to performing microTESE. Pearson's chi-square and Fisher's exact tests were used to analyze categorical outcomes and candidate predictor variables. (Source: Urology)

Robot ‑assisted laparoscopic extra-vesical ureteral reimplantation (ralur/revur) for pediatric vesicoureteral reflux: a systematic review of literature
This literature review aimed to assess the outcomes of robot-assisted laparoscopic extra-vesical ureteral reimplantation (RALUR/REVUR) in standard, complex and re-operative cases.Twenty-two studies (period 2008-2019) containing 1362 children receiving RALUR/REVUR, were included. Unilateral repair was faster compared to bilateral (p=0.0000). The overall patient success rate was 92%. The mean post-operative complications rate was 10.7%. The mean re-operations rate was 3.9%.The available data show that RALUR/REVUR can be a first line surgical approach for pediatric VUR at most centers with the caveat that learning curves for ...

Complications of peri-operative ureteral catheter placement: experience at a major cancer center
Peri-operative cystoscopy with ureteral catheter placement is a common urologic procedure performed prior to pelvic and retroperitoneal surgery to aid in ureteral identification. However, few studies have been completed evaluating complications following this procedure. While evidence is limited, studies in the gynecologic and colorectal literature have shown complication rates from 2.4% to 98% following ureteral catheter placement.1, 2 Although complications are typically mild, a review of colorectal patients revealed a concerning anuria rate of 5% following surgery.

To test whether two sequential BCG-induction courses improves the response of high-risk non-muscle invasive bladder cancer. Achieving a complete response (CR) to BCG is critical to disease-free survival.
