OBJECTIVES: Several systematic reviews and meta-analyses have reported positive relationships between erectile dysfunction (ED) and periodontal disease. However, no study has evaluated the relationships of occlusal support status and the number of remaining teeth with ED. The aim of the present study was to investigate the relationships between ED and the remaining teeth number, periodontal disease, and occlusal support status. METHODS: This study included 400 community-dwelling men...

INTRODUCTION: Sacral neuromodulation (SNM) and onabotulinumtoxinA (BoNTA) injection are third-line therapies for overactive bladder (OAB). Although the efficacy of each third-line treatment has been well established in clinical trials, there is far less information about performing one third-line therapy after the other. Our aim is thus to investigate the outcomes of post-SNM BoNTA and post-BoNTA SNM as "second" third-line treatments. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed all OAB patients who had both SNM and BoNTA between 2013 and 2022...

OBJECTIVES: To determine the outcomes for elderly patients with de novo metastatic germ cell tumors and the influence of patient age on adherence to standard chemotherapy. METHODS: A total of 150 patients who were initially diagnosed with metastatic germ cell tumors and treated at our institution between 2007 and 2021 were included. Patients were classified according to three age groups: aged <40, 40-49, and ≥50 years. Clinicopathological features, adherence to standard first-line chemotherapy, overall survival, and disease-free survival were compared between these groups...

OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to compare clinical outcomes between patients receiving second TUR after initial white-light transurethral resection of bladder tumor (WL-TURBT) and initial photodynamic diagnosis (PDD)-assisted TURBT. METHODS: A total of 1007 patients were divided into four groups based on the treatment pattern: WL-TURBT with second TUR (161 patients, WL-second group) or without second TUR (540 patients, WL-alone group) and PDD-TURBT with second TUR (112 patients, PDD-second group) or without second TUR (194 patients, PDD-alone group)...

OBJECTIVE: Intraoperative hypotension remains a serious adverse event of photodynamic diagnosis-assisted transurethral resection of bladder tumor with oral administration of 5-aminolevulinic acid. We conducted a re-analysis of perioperative hypotension in photodynamic diagnosis-assisted transurethral resection of the bladder tumor with oral 5-aminolevulinic acid to ascertain its safety. METHODS: A total of 407 cases who underwent transurethral resection of bladder tumors in our institution were reviewed (274 cases for the PDD group with photodynamic diagnosis and 133 for the white light (WL) group without)...

OBJECTIVES: To assess whether the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic affected the outcomes of robot-assisted radical prostatectomy (RARP) and urologists' treatment behaviors. METHODS: We retrospectively examined the medical records of 208 patients who had undergone RARP between August 2017 and December 2022. We compared the rate of preoperative androgen deprivation therapy (ADT), waiting period for RARP, patients' baseline characteristics and quality of life (QOL), proportion of adverse pathology on the RARP specimen, rate of Gleason grade group upgrading from biopsy to the RARP specimen, and prostate-specific antigen (PSA) recurrence-free survival between the pre-pandemic and pandemic groups...

OBJECTIVES: To validate the diagnostic accuracy of a stepwise algorithm to differentiate fat-poor angiomyolipoma (fp-AML) from renal cancer in small renal masses (SRMs). METHODS: We prospectively enrolled 223 patients with solid renal masses <4 cm and no visible fat on unenhanced computed tomography (CT). Patients were assessed using an algorithm that utilized the dynamic CT and MRI findings in a stepwise manner. The diagnostic accuracy of the algorithm was evaluated in patients whose histology was confirmed through surgery or biopsy...

OBJECTIVES: We investigated the clinical outcomes of radical cystectomy without cisplatin-based neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) and identified factors affecting the effectiveness of cisplatin-based adjuvant chemotherapy (AC). METHODS: Between September 2002 and February 2020, 288 bladder cancer patients who did not receive NAC underwent radical cystectomy. We retrospectively analyzed the recurrence rates, primary recurrence sites, recurrence-free survival (RFS), and overall survival (OS) of 115 advanced bladder cancer patients (pT3-4 or pN1-3) who were divided into the AC and observation groups...
