With the development of minimally invasive surgery technology, patients with bladder cancer are increasingly receiving laparoscopic radical cystectomy (LRC) or robotic-assisted radical cystectomy (RARC) treatment.
The US Health and Human Services Pain Management Best Practices Inter-Agency Task Force initiated a public-private partnership which led to the publication of its report in 2019. The report emphasized the need for individualized, multimodal, and multidisciplinary approaches to pain management that decrease the over-reliance on opioids, increase access to care, and promote widespread education on pain and substance use disorders.
To describe the current state of workforce diversity in Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery (FPMRS) using the 2014-2019 American Urological Association (AUA) census data.
We evaluated FPMRS workforce diversity using the AUA census data from 2014 to 2019.
Protease inhibitors are a source of nephrolithiasis in HIV + patients, and these stones are described as not detected by CT. While urinary stones are commonly associated with certain protease inhibitors, stones composed of ritonavir are rare.
Over the years, many clinical and engineering methods have been adapted for testing and screening for the presence of diseases. The most commonly used methods for diagnosis and analysis are computed tomography (CT) and X-ray imaging.
With the advent of electronic medical records and digitalization of health care over the past 2 decades, artificial intelligence (AI) has emerged as an enabling tool to manage complex datasets and deliver streamlined data-driven patient care.
To assess the prevalence of intraoperative penile erection in our endourology practice and the utility of intravenous ketamine in the management of the condition.
Of 402 endoscopic urological procedures performed in our clinic over a 4-year (2015-2019) period, a total of 9 cases with intraoperative penile erection impeding instrumentation during endourological surgery were included.
This study sought to characterize delays and estimate resulting costs during nephrolithiasis surgery.
Independent observers documented delays during ureteroscopy (URS) and percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) procedures.
To objectively assess the performance of graduating urology residents performing flexible ureterorenoscopy (fURS) using a simulation-based model and to set an entrustibility standard or benchmark for use across the educational spectrum.
