Extravaginal torsion (EVT) is a rare type of testicular torsion that usually occurs in neonates. The primary type of testicular torsion that occurs in adolescents is intravaginal torsion (IVT). In this case report, we describe the first case of EVT reported in a 16-year-old male with a contralateral bell clapper deformity and subsequent surgical management using a tunica vaginalis flap (TVF) and bilateral orchiopexy. In discussion of this case, we examine possible anatomical causes of EVT and suggestions for appropriate surgical management...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the mFI-5 as a predictor of post-operative outcomes following transurethral resection of bladder tumor (TURBT). METHODS: The National Surgical Quality Improvement Program database was queried for TURBT cases from 2015-2019. mFI-5 scores were calculated by assigning a point to COPD, CHF, dependent functional status, hypertension, and diabetes. Patients were stratified by mFI-5 scores. Demographics and 30-day outcomes including Clavien-Dindo (CD) complications, mortality, and increased healthcare resource utilization (HCRU) were compared...

BACKGROUND: The management of kidney stones, particularly those in the renal pelvis, is a critical aspect of urology. The European Association of Urology guidelines recommend Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy or Endourology methods, encompassing Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy and Ureterorenoscopy (URS), for stones ranging from 10-20 mm. Robotic-assisted urological procedures have gained prominence in recent years, promising enhanced precision, and safety. OBJECTIVES: This article aims to provide a detailed account of the technical aspects and outcomes of a robotic URS (robo-URS) procedure in a 63-year-old male patient with a 15 mm renal pelvis stone, serving as a reference for urologists considering this approach...

OBJECTIVES: To develop and validate a low-cost, portable, and reusable simulation model for optical internal urethrotomy (OIU) training. METHODS: A 3D-printed low-cost simulation model for OIU was designed locally and the final model was evaluated by trainees and trainers at the urology boot camps (UK, Belgium, Portugal, Poland). Participants were asked to complete a questionnaire, using a 6-item 5-point rating Likert Scale, to assess the model's anatomic realism...

OBJECTIVE: To prospectively capture patient-reported outcomes to assess the recovery profile of ureteroscopy. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Adults undergoing ureteroscopy for renal/ureteral stones were eligible for inclusion (11/2020-8/2022). Patients prospectively completed PROMIS - Pain Intensity, -Pain Interference, and -Ability to participate in social roles and activities in-person pre-operatively (POD 0) and via email on POD 1, 7, 14 and 30. Scores are reported as T-scores (normalized to US pop...

OBJECTIVE: To analyze AUA urology residency program websites to determine visibility of DEI initiatives. There is growing interest in diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) initiatives by urology applicants, and in recent years, urology programs have invested in efforts to promote DEI. METHODS: All ACGME-accredited urology residency program with a website were assessed. Military programs were excluded. A DEI Score Card was developed using published pillars of DEI, including five domains: departmental inclusion, pipeline growth, departmental education, community engagement, and faculty demographics...

A 27-year-old male with a history of functional constipation presented for ileostomy closure. He had a 12-cm impacted rectal stool ball precluding safe ileostomy takedown. He underwent multiple unsuccessful attempts at removal including colotomy, antegrade and retrograde enemas and manual disimpaction. The urological team suggested a novel approach using lithotripsy. A 26-French rigid nephroscope and the Olympus ShockPulse SE ultrasonic lithotripter was utilized transanally to break up the impacted stool ball...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate how the shift of the United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE) Step 1 to a Pass/Fail (P/F) scoring system impacts the perceptions of Urology Program Directors (PDs) on evaluating urology residency applicants. METHODS AND MATERIALS: A cross-sectional survey was sent to 117 PDs, including questions about program characteristics, perceptions of shelf scores and medical school rank post-transition, beliefs about the predictive value of Step 1 and Step 2 Clinical Knowledge (CK) scores for board success and residency performance, and changes in applicant parameter ranking...
