Antegrade Endoscopic Upper Tract Approaches - Ryan Hsi

Details
Sam Chang and Ryan Hsi, discuss percutaneous techniques and evaluation for upper tract tumors. Dr. Hsi begins this conversation with a background on antegrade approaches. He discusses the goals of these antegrade approaches to be obtaining tissues and cytologies, while also ablating, resecting, and treating the visible tumor. He also goes on to discuss his approach to using antegrade techniques, w...

Journal of Endourology: Magnetic-Assisted Robotic and Laparoscopic Renal Surgery - Michael Palese

Details
Joining Jaime Landman on UroToday's Endourology Today is Michael Palese, to present on the manuscript titled "Magnetic-Assisted Robotic and Laparoscopic Renal Surgery: Initial Clinical Experience with the Levita TM Magnetic Surgical System." The Levita TM Magnetic Surgical System is a novel device that can provide retraction using magnets and can reduce the number of ports used during laparoscopic...

Surgical Simulator for Laparoscopic Partial Nephrectomy for Renal Cell Carcinoma - Gonzalo Vitagliano

Details
There is a need for more realistic surgical training and the need to train outside of the patient for fellows and residents. The traditional approach of on-patient training is evolving to a great reliance on simulators with more complex platforms. The best patient outcomes from minimally invasive partial nephrectomy, for incidental renal masses, done through either laparoscopy or the robotic platf...

Ureteral Wall Injury with Ureteral Access Sheaths - Manoj Monga

Details
Jaime Landman, MD is joined by Ralph Clayman, MD, and Manoj Monga, MD, FACS, an author of a recently published article in the Journal of Endourology titled "Ureteral Wall Injury with Ureteral Access sheaths." The study aimed to compare two commercially available ureteral access sheaths in their ability to access the renal collecting system and assess ureteral wall trauma using a prospective, rando...

The Impact of Patient, Procedural, and Staffing Factors Upon Ureteroscopic Costs - Duane Baldwin

Details
In this conversation, Jaime Landman, MD, and Duane Baldwin, MD, discuss the recent publication, β€œThe Impact of Patient, Procedural, and Staffing Factors Upon Ureteroscopic Costs.” Dr. Baldwin, a senior author on this paper, describes the expensive nature of stone disease β€” the most expensive urologic diagnosis β€” and how the study assessed 129 cases for cost-related factors such as operative length...
