INTRODUCTION: The objective of this study was to investigate the disease course after direct vision internal urethrotomy (DVIU) for short anterior urethral strictures. METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed 94 patients who underwent DVIU of the anterior urethra. Patients' age, etiology, length and localization of the strictures, total number of DVIU procedures, comorbidities, and other data were evaluated. RESULTS: The mean age of the patients was 67...

INTRODUCTION: Ureteropelvic junction obstruction (UPJO) is a condition characterized by partial or complete obstruction of urine transport from the renal pelvis to the ureter and can present with intermittent flank pain, recurrent urinary tract infections, renal stones, or renal dysfunction. While historically, open pyeloplasty was the gold standard for surgical management, laparoscopic methods to repair UPJO have largely taken over as the preferred approach for adolescent and adult patients...

INTRODUCTION: Upper tract urothelial carcinoma (UTUC) accounts for <5% of all urothelial cancers. We aimed to ascertain the clinical differences between UTUC tumours presenting de novo (DnUTUC) and those presenting secondary (SUTUC) following a bladder cancer diagnosis. METHODS: Our institutional database was queried for all UTUC patients who were surgically treated with radical nephroureterectomy or ureterectomy between 2003 and 2017. Bladder recurrence and cancer-specific mortality were compared...

INTRODUCTION: Irreversible electroporation (IRE) is a novel technology used in the minimally invasive treatment of small solid organ tumours. Currently, there is a paucity of literature studying treatment of small renal masses (SRMs) with IRE. Our pilot study is the first case series in Canada to use IRE in the treatment of SRMs. METHODS: This retrospective cohort pilot study includes five patients (three females and two males) who presented with a SRM that was deemed not amendable to any other treatment than a radical nephrectomy or IRE...

INTRODUCTION: The aim of this study was to detect circulating tumour cells (CTCs) in patients with advanced renal cell carcinoma (RCC) using a novel CTC detection platform. Furthermore, we evaluated the clinical outcomes associated with a CTC-positive status. METHODS: A total of 34 patients with advanced RCC (stage III or IV) were prospectively enrolled, and 104 peripheral blood samples were analyzed for the presence of CTCs at various time points. CTCs were isolated using a tapered-slit filter, which captures CTCs based on size and deformability...

INTRODUCTION: The importance of developing inter-professional communication and leadership skills among residents is well-recognized; however, formal tools to assess these skills are lacking. The goal of our study was to assess the leader and communicator roles in graduating urology residents using a validated self-assessment form developed for business students that focuses on inter-professional skills. METHODS: Chief residents (n=36) were evaluated with surveys of communication and leadership skills...

INTRODUCTION: In a competency-based approach to resident education, a component of training should focus on skills needed for the transition from residency to independent practice. The ability to run an outpatient clinic represents one such skill. Resident-run clinics (RRC) have been implemented in family medicine programs to allow residents to practice this skill, and have enhanced learning while providing excellent patient satisfaction. To date, there has been little experience with RRCs in surgical residency programs...

INTRODUCTION: The natural history of small renal masses has been well defined, leading to the recommendation of active surveillance in some patients with limited life expectancy. However, this information is less clear for large renal masses (LRM), leading to ambiguity for management in the older, comorbid patient. The objective of this study was to define the natural history, including the growth rate and metastatic risk, of LRM in order to better counsel patients regarding active surveillance...

INTRODUCTION: We sought to examine the costs related to treatment and treatment-related complications for patients treated with surgery or radiation for localized prostate cancer. METHODS: We performed a population-based, retrospective cohort study of men who underwent open radical prostatectomy or radiation from 2004-2009 in Ontario, Canada. Costs, including initial treatment and inpatient hospitalization, emergency room visit, outpatient consultation, physician billings, and medication costs, were determined for five years following treatment using a validated costing algorithm...

INTRODUCTION: Baseline urodynamic characterization in patients with neurogenic lower urinary tract dysfunction (NLUTD) allows detection of unsafe storage and voiding pressures and optimization of these parameters through medical or surgical intervention. Surveillance urodynamics (sUDS) studies are performed in the ambulatory setting after baseline characterization, with the goal of monitoring bladder function. How often this study should be performed and the circumstances that should prompt repeated studies are unknown...

INTRODUCTION: Small cell carcinoma of the bladder (SmCC) is a rare and aggressive genitourinary malignancy. The paucity of clinical trials and outcome data provide no standard treatment guidelines. Accordingly, patient prognosis is poor. Our goal was to present the first comprehensive in-depth analysis of SmCC in a tertiary Canadian centre. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed all patients diagnosed with primary SmCC at the London Regional Cancer Program between January 1990 and 2016...

INTRODUCTION: We aimed to compare efficacy, safety, and cost of disposables of the DrillCutTM morcellator with the VersaCutTM morcellator after holmium laser enucleation of the prostate (HoLEP). METHODS: After obtaining ethical approval, consecutive patients undergoing HoLEP for symptomatic benign prostatic hyperplasia were randomized to have their enucleated prostates morcellated by either Karl Storz® DrillCutTM or Lumenis® VersaCutTM morcellators. All procedures were performed by two experienced urologists...

INTRODUCTION: We performed a meta-analysis of the current literature to assess the association of caudal block and postoperative complication rates following hypospadias repair. METHODS: A Systematic literature search was conducted on October 2017. Five reviewers independently screened, identified, and evaluated comparative studies assessing postoperative outcomes following hypospadias repair with and without caudal block. The incidence of post-surgical complications from each study was extracted for caudal block and control groups to generate the odds ratio (OR) and corresponding 95% confidence intervals (CI)...

INTRODUCTION: The urologist's role in the management of patients with spinal cord injury (SCI) is to prevent upper tract damage and renal failure while facilitating acceptable means for urine elimination. Residency provides the framework to manage SCI patients. The purpose of this study was to determine the surveillance practices of chief urology residents in high SCI patients (T4/5 and above) and their confidence in managing this patient population. METHODS: A 14-question survey was administered at the Canadian chief resident preparation examination in 2017...

INTRODUCTION: We aimed to determine if there is a correlation between International Prostate Symptom scores (IPSS) and 24-hour urine collection volumes, as patients experiencing lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) may have impaired ability to increase fluid intake for stone prevention. METHODS: We conducted a single-centre, retrospective review was performed of stone-formers presenting from 2014-2016. Inclusion criteria were completion of an IPSS questionnaire and a 24-hour urine collection...
