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.
The conventional flexible ureteroscope has limited access into the lower calyx and often causes biomechanical stress to surgeons. Recently, a novel flexible ureteroscope with an omnidirectional bending tip with a joystick-type control unit (URF-Y0016; Olympus, Japan) was developed.
While laparoscopic urachal excision in children has been well reported, there is limited data on a robot-assisted surgical (RAS) approach. The hidden incision endoscopic surgery (HIdES) technique is an established method of eliminating visible scars following a number of RAS urologic procedures.
To understand the current practice of flexible ureteroscopy (fURS), we conducted a worldwide survey among urologists with a special interest in endourology.
A 42-question survey was designed after an initial consultation with European Association of Urology young academic urologists (YAU) and uro-technology (ESUT) groups.
The aim of the article is to evaluate the actual role of extracorporeal shock-wave lithotripsy (ESWL) in the management of urolithiasis based on the new developments of flexible ureterorenoscopy (FURS) and percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL).
Bladder cancer is one of the most common malignancies worldwide. The transurethral resection of bladder tumour (TURB) remains the gold standard in both diagnostics and treatment. Because of the importance of TURB in bladder cancer management and the fact that TURB is one of the most commonly performed urologic procedures, it is the subject of continuous technological development.
Introduction: To evaluate the use and awareness of radiation during URS among Belgian and Dutch urologists.Material and methods: An online questionnaire was send to all members of the Belgian and Dutch Association of Urology.
