  • Ureteral stricture rate after endoscopic treatments for urolithiasis and
           related risk factors: systematic review and meta-analysis

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Purpose We aimed to accurately determine ureteral stricture (US) rates following urolithiasis treatments and their related risk factors. Methods We conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis following the PRISMA guidelines using databases from inception to November 2023. Studies were deemed eligible for analysis if they included ≥ 18 years old patients with urinary lithiasis (Patients) who were subjected to endoscopic treatment (Intervention) with ureteroscopy (URS), percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL), or shock wave lithotripsy (SWL) (Comparator) to assess the incidence of US (Outcome) in prospective and retrospective studies (Study design). Results A total of 43 studies were included. The pooled US rate was 1.3% post-SWL and 2.1% post-PCNL. The pooled rate of US post-URS was 1.9% but raised to 2.7% considering the last five years’ studies and 4.9% if the stone was impacted. Moreover, the pooled US rate differed if follow-ups were under or over six months. Patients with proximal ureteral stone, preoperative hydronephrosis, intraoperative ureteral perforation, and impacted stones showed higher US risk post-endoscopic intervention with odds ratio of 1.6 (P = 0.05), 2.6 (P = 0.009), 7.1 (P < 0.001), and 7.47 (P = 0.003), respectively. Conclusions The overall US rate ranges from 0.3 to 4.9%, with an increasing trend in the last few years. It is influenced by type of treatment, stone location and impaction, preoperative hydronephrosis and intraoperative perforation. Future standardized reporting and prospective and more extended follow-up studies might contribute to a better understanding of US risks related to calculi treatment.

  • Role of oxygen reserve index monitoring in patients undergoing
           robot-assisted radical prostatectomy: a retrospective study

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Purpose Robot-assisted radical prostatectomy (RARP) is a common surgical procedure for the treatment of prostate cancer. Although beneficial, it can lead to intraoperative hypoxia due to high-pressure pneumoperitoneum and Trendelenburg position. This study explored the use of oxygen reserve index (ORi) to monitor and predict hypoxia during RARP. Methods A retrospective analysis was conducted on 329 patients who underwent RARP at the Seoul National University Bundang Hospital between July 2021 and March 2023. Various pre- and intraoperative variables were collected, including ORi values. The relationship between ORi values and hypoxia occurrence was assessed using receiver operating characteristic curves and logistic regression analysis. Results Intraoperative hypoxia occurred in 18.8% of the patients. The receiver operating characteristic curve showed a satisfactory area under the curve of 0.762, with the ideal ORi cut-off value for predicting hypoxia set at 0.16. Sensitivity and specificity were 64.5% and 75.7%, respectively. An ORi value of < 0.16 and a higher body mass index were identified as independent risk factors of hypoxia during RARP. Conclusions ORi monitoring provides a non-invasive approach to predict intraoperative hypoxia during RARP, enabling early management. Additionally, the significant relationship between a higher body mass index and hypoxia underscores the importance of individualized patient assessment.

  • Is “Kidney Stone Calculator” efficient in predicting ureteroscopic
           lithotripsy duration' A holmium:YAG and thulium fiber lasers comparative
           analysis

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Purpose This study aimed to evaluate the ability of Kidney Stone Calculator (KSC), a flexible ureteroscopy surgical planning software, to predict the lithotripsy duration with both holmium:YAG (Ho:YAG) and thulium fiber laser (TFL). Methods A multicenter prospective study was conducted from January 2020 to April 2023. Patients with kidney or ureteral stones confirmed at non-contrast computed tomography and treated by flexible ureteroscopy with laser lithotripsy were enrolled. “Kidney Stone Calculator” provided stone volume and subsequent lithotripsy duration estimation using three-dimensional segmentation of the stone on computed tomography and the graphical user interface for laser settings. The primary endpoint was the quantitative and qualitative comparison between estimated and effective lithotripsy durations. Secondary endpoints included subgroup analysis (Ho:YAG–TFL) of differences between estimated and effective lithotripsy durations and intraoperative outcomes. Multivariate analysis assessed the association between pre- and intraoperative variables and these differences according to laser source. Results 89 patients were included in this study, 43 and 46 in Ho:YAG and TFL groups, respectively. No significant difference was found between estimated and effective lithotripsy durations (27.37 vs 28.36 min, p = 0.43) with a significant correlation (r =  + 0.89, p < 0.001). Among groups, this difference did not differ (p = 0.68 and 0.07, respectively), with a higher correlation between estimated and effective lithotripsy durations for TFL compared to Ho:YAG (r =  + 0.95, p < 0.001 vs r =  + 0.81, p < 0.001, respectively). At multivariate analysis, the difference was correlated with preoperative (volume > 2000 mm3 (Ho:YAG), 500–750 mm3 SV and calyceal diverticulum (TFL)), operative (fragmentation setting (p > 0.001), and basket utilization (p = 0.05) (Ho:YAG)) variables. Conclusion KSC is a reliable tool for predicting the lithotripsy duration estimation during flexible ureteroscopy for both Ho:YAG and TFL. However, some variables not including laser source may lead to underestimating this estimation.

  • The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on renal cancer care

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Purpose To evaluate the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on renal cell carcinoma (RCC) care in the Netherlands. Methods Newly diagnosed RCCs between 2018 and 2021 were selected from the Netherlands Cancer Registry; 2020–2021 was defined as COVID period and 2018–2019 as reference period. Numbers of RCCs were evaluated using 3-week-moving averages, overall and by disease stage and age. Changes in treatment were evaluated with logistic regression analyses. To evaluate possible delays in care, time to start of treatment was assessed. The cumulative number of metastatic RCC (mRCC) over time was assessed to evaluate stage shift. Results During the 1st COVID wave (weeks 9–22, 2020), the number of new RCC diagnoses decreased with 15%. Numbers restored partially in 2020, but remained 10% lower compared to 2018/2019. The decline was mostly due to a drop in T1a/T1b RCCs and in age > 70 years. 2021 showed similar numbers of new RCC diagnoses compared to 2018/2019 without an increase due to previously missed RCCs. Treatment-related changes during the 1st COVID wave were limited and temporarily; less surgery in T1a RCCs in favor of more active surveillance, and in mRCC targeted therapy was preferred over immunotherapy. Time to start of firstline treatment was not prolonged during the 1st COVID wave. No increase in mRCC was found until the end of 2021. Conclusions The COVID-19 pandemic resulted in fewer RCC diagnoses, especially T1a/T1b tumors. Treatment-related changes appeared to be limited, temporarily and in accordance with the adapted guidelines. The diagnostic delay could lead to more advanced RCCs in later years but there are no indications for this yet.

  • Genetic susceptibility of urolithiasis: comprehensive results from
           genome-wide analysis

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Background The pathogenesis of urolithiasis is multi-factorial and genetic factors have been shown to play a significant role in the development of urolithiasis. We tried to apply genome-wide Mendelian randomization (MR) analysis and figure out reliable gene susceptibility of urolithiasis from the largest samples to date in two independent genome-wide association studies (GWAS) database of European ancestry. Methods We extracted summary statistics of expression quantitative trait locus (eQTL) from eQTLGen consortium. Urolithiasis phenotype information was obtained from both FinnGen Biobank and UK Biobank. Multiple two-sample MR analysis with a Bonferroni-corrected P threshold (P < 2.5e-06) was conducted. The primary endpoint was the causal effect calculated by random-effect inverse variance weighted (IVW) method. Sensitivity analysis, volcano plots, scatter plots, and regional plots were also performed and visualized. Results After multiple MR tests between 19942 eQTLs and urolithiasis phenotype from both cohorts, 30 common eQTLs with consistent effect size direction were found to be causally associated with urolithiasis risk. Finally only one gene (LMAN2) was simultaneously identified among all top significant eQTLs from both FinnGen Biobank (beta = 0.6758, se = 0.0327, P = 6.775e-95) and UK Biobank (beta = 0.0044, se = 0.0009, P = 2.417e-06). We also found that LMAN2 was with the largest beta effect size on urolithiasis phenotype from the two cohorts. Conclusion We for the first time implemented genome-wide MR analysis to investigate the genetic susceptibility of urolithiasis in general population of European ancestry. Our results provided novel insights into common genetic variants of urinary stone disease, which was of great help to subsequent researches.

  • Evaluation of renovated double J stents using ureter models with and
           without stenosis

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Purpose Commercial double J stents (DJS) have a uniform shape regardless of the specific nature of various ureteral diseases. We tested renovated DJS and compared them with conventional DJS using ureter models. Methods One straight ureter model included stenosis at the distal ureter near the ureterovesical junction and the other did not. We used conventional DJS and renovated 5- and 6-Fr soft DJS for ureter stones and 6-, 7-, and 8.5-Fr hard DJS for tumors. The DJS comprised holes in the upper, middle, or lower one-third of the shaft (length, 24 cm; 2-cm-diameter coils at both ends). More holes were created along the shaft based on the ureteral disease location. Conventional DJS had holes spaced 1 cm apart along the shaft. Renovated DJS had holes spaced 1 cm apart along the shaft with 0.5-cm intervals on the upper, middle, or lower one-third of the shaft. Urine flow was evaluated. Results As the DJS diameter increased, the flow rate decreased. The flow rates of DJS with holes in the lower shaft were relatively lower than those of conventional DJS and DJS with holes in the upper and middle shafts. In the ureter model without stenosis, 6-, 7-, and 8.5-Fr renovated stents exhibited significantly higher flow rates than conventional stents. In the ureter model with stenosis, 5-, 6-, 7-, and 8.5-Fr renovated stents did not exhibit significantly higher flow rates than conventional stents. Conclusion Renovated stents and conventional stents did not exhibit significant differences in urine flow with stenosis.

  • Development and validation of a clinical and ultrasound features-based
           nomogram for preoperative differentiation of renal urothelial carcinoma
           and central renal cell carcinoma

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Purpose This study aimed to develop and validate an ultrasound (US)-based nomogram for the preoperative differentiation of renal urothelial carcinoma (rUC) from central renal cell carcinoma (c-RCC). Methods Clinical data and US images of 655 patients with 655 histologically confirmed malignant renal tumors (521 c-RCCs and 134 rUCs) were collected and divided into training (n = 455) and validation (n = 200) cohorts according to examination dates. Conventional US and contrast-enhanced US (CEUS) tumor features were analyzed to determine those that could discriminate rUC from c-RCC. Least absolute shrinkage and selection operator regression was applied to screen clinical and US features for the differentiation of rUC from c-RCC. Using multivariate logistic regression analysis, a diagnostic model of rUC was constructed and visualized as a nomogram. The diagnostic model’s performance was assessed in the training and validation cohorts by calculating the area under the receiver operating characteristic curve (AUC) and calibration plot. Decision curve analysis (DCA) was used to assess the clinical usefulness of the US-based nomogram. Results Seven features of both clinical features and ultrasound imaging were selected to build the diagnostic model. The nomogram achieved favorable discrimination in the training (AUC = 0.996, 95% CI: 0.993–0.999) and validation (AUC = 0.995, 95% CI: 0.974, 1.000) cohorts, and good calibration (Brier scores: 0.019 and 0.016, respectively). DCA demonstrated the clinical usefulness of the US-based nomogram. Conclusion A noninvasive clinical and US-based nomogram combining conventional US and CEUS features possesses good predictive value for differentiating rUC from c-RCC.

  • A new protocol for renal collecting system sterilization with antibiotic
           irrigation during lithotripsy in retrograde intrarenal surgery: a
           prospective, comparative study

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Purpose To present a new protocol using antibiotic irrigation during lithotripsy in retrograde intrarenal surgery (RIRS) to provide sterility of the renal collecting system. Methods This prospective study included 102 patients who underwent RIRS between January 2022 and August 2023. The patients were examined in two groups as those who received antibiotic irrigation (n:51) and standard irrigation (n:51). In the antibiotic irrigation group, 80 mg of gentamicin was dissolved in normal saline in a 3 L irrigation pouch to obtain a 26.7 mg/L concentration. In the standard irrigation group, normal saline was used. Preoperative information, including age, sex, body mass index (BMI), ASA score, stone side, volume, and density, and the Seoul National University Renal Stone Complexity (S-ReSC) score. The groups were compared with respect to postoperative fever (> 38 °C), urinary tract infection (UTI), systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS), infectious complications such as sepsis, and stone-free rate. Results No statistically significant difference was determined between the groups with respect to age, sex, BMI, ASA score, stone side, volume and density, and S-ReSC score (p > 0.05 for all). Statistically significant differences were determined between the groups with respect to postoperative fever (p = 0.05), SIRS (p = 0.05), and hospital length of stay (p = 0.05). Sepsis was observed in one patient in the standard irrigation group and in none of the antibiotic irrigation group. Conclusion The reliability, efficacy, and utility of antibiotic irrigation during lithotripsy in RIRS were presented in this study as a new protocol for sterilization of the renal collecting system which will be able to reduce infectious complications.

           prognostic factor after radical nephroureterectomy

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Purpose To evaluate the impact of variant histology on patients with upper tract urothelial carcinoma (UTUC) survival outcomes. Materials and methods A total of 519 patients underwent radical nephroureterectomy without neoadjuvant therapy for UTUC at a single institution between May 2003 and December 2019. Multivariate Cox regression analysis evaluated the impact of variant histology on progression-free survival (PFS), cancer-specific survival (CSS), and overall survival (OS). Results Among 84 patients (16.2%) with variant histology, the most frequent variant type was squamous cell differentiation (64.3%), followed by glandular differentiation (25.0%) and sarcomatoid variant (2.4%). They showed pathologically advanced T stage (for ≥ T3, 59.5% vs 33.3%, p < 0.001), higher tumor grade (96.4% vs 85.7%, p = 0.025), and higher rates of lymph node metastasis (17.9% vs 7.8%, p = 0.015), angiolymphatic invasion (41.7% vs 25.7%, p = 0.003), tumor necrosis (57.1% vs 29.0%, p < 0.001) and positive surgical margin (13.1% vs 5.7%, p = 0.015). On multivariate Cox regression analyses, variant histology was significantly associated with worse PFS (hazard ratio [HR] 2.23; 95% confidence interval [CI] 1.55–3.21; p < 0.001), CSS (HR 2.67; 95% CI 1.35–5.30; p = 0.005) and OS (HR 2.22; 95% CI 1.27–3.88; p = 0.005). In subgroup analysis, no significant survival gains of adjuvant chemotherapy occurred in patients with variant histology. Conclusions Variant histology was associated with adverse pathologic features and poor survival outcomes. Our results suggest that patients with variant histology may require a close follow-up schedule and novel adjuvant therapy other than chemotherapy postoperatively.

Methods From August 2016 to February 2020, symptomatic patients > 18 years old with bilateral kidney stones up to 20 mm in each side were prospectively studied. Serum creatinine samples were collected on admission to surgery, immediate postoperative (IPO), on POD 3, 10, and 30. Estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) was calculated using Chronic Kidney Disease Epidemiology Collaboration equation (CKD-EPI) without a race coefficient. Results Thirty patients underwent bilateral fURS. Comparing to preoperative eGFR, median IPO and POD3 eGFR (p < 0.001) were significantly lower, and POD10 (p = 0.092) and POD30 (p = 0.648) were similar to preoperative eGFR. During follow-up, 22/30 (73.3%), 14/30 (46.7%), and 7/30 (23.3%) of the patients presented a decrease > 10% eGFR, > 20% eGFR, and > 30% eGFR, respectively. Multivariate analysis demonstrated that lower preoperative eGFR is a risk factor for eGFR < 60 mL/min/1.73 m2, p = 0.019 [1.021–1.263; 1.136]; ASA > 1 is a risk factor for decrease of eGFR > 10%, p = 0.028 [1.25–51.13; 8.00]; longer operative time is a risk factor for decrease of eGFR > 20%, p = 0.042 [1.00–1.05; 1.028]; and operative time ≥ 120 min is a risk factor for decrease of eGFR > 30%, p = 0.026 [0.016–0.773; 0.113]. Conclusions Renal function suffers a reversible decrease after bilateral fURS. Our study suggests that adequate selection of patients and maintaining operative time < 120 min are relevant factors in preventing acute renal function deterioration following bilateral fURS.

  • Higher oxidative balance score is associated with lower kidney stone
           disease in US adults: a population-based cross-sectional study

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Purpose Oxidative balance stress (OBS) was an important indicator for assessing exposure to oxidative stress related to diet and lifestyle. The purpose of this study was to explore the relationship between OBS and kidney stone disease (KSD). Methods Secondary dataset analysis was performed by the study from six survey cycles (2007–2018) in the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES). OBS was the exposure factor and ever had kidney stone (yes or no) was the outcome. Weighted univariate or multivariate logistic regression models were used to estimate the associations. Results The prevalence of KSD among participants was 8.6%. OBS showed a significant negative correlation with KSD (OR: 0.98, 95% CI 0.96–0.999), 35% reduction in KSD in the highest OBS quartile compared to the lowest OBS quartile. Dietary OBS was significantly negatively correlated with KSD (OR: 0.98, 95% CI 0.96–0.9998), but not with lifestyle OBS. In addition, OBS had a negative correlation with KSD in females (OR: 0.97, 95% CI 0.94–0.996), non-diabetic participants (OR: 0.98, 95% CI 0.96–0.99), and hypertensive participants (OR: 0.96, 95% CI 0.93–0.99), but OBS was not observed to be associated with KSD in gout participants. Interestingly, this relationship existed in participants aged 30–60 years and a ratio of family income to poverty (PIR) of 1.3–3.5 (all P value < 0.05). Conclusion Our study revealed that OBS was negative associated with KSD, and high OBS might be a protective factor in KSD. Targeting one of the components of OBS might be beneficial.

  • Perioperative complications and oncological outcomes of open versus
           robotic-assisted radical cystectomy: a propensity score-matched study

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Purpose To conduct a comparative effectiveness analysis between robot-assisted radical cystectomy (RARC) and open approach (ORC). Materials and methods A retrospective cohort study was conducted involving all patients undergoing radical cystectomy and urinary diversion for invasive bladder cancer at our institution from 2010 to 2018. Of a total 296 patients, we matched ORC and RARC cases based on age, BMI, Charlson comorbidity index, pathological TN staging of the tumor, prior radiotherapy, and type of diversion. The perioperative complications and oncological outcomes were compared. Results Eighty-nine patients were matched in the ORC and RARC groups. The median operative time was longer in RARC group (430 min) than that of ORC group (372 min) (p = 0.03); however, the median estimated blood loss (EBL) was significantly lower in RARC group (500 ml) than that of ORC (700 ml) (p < 0.0001). The median length of hospital stay (LOS) was significantly reduced in the RARC group (7 days) compared to the ORC group (8 days) (p = 0.02). There were no significant differences between both groups in 30- and 90-day postoperative complications (p = 0.3 and p = 0.2, respectively). A total of 68 deaths (38.2%) were observed, of which 36 (40.4%) were in ORC group while 32 (36%) were in RARC group (p = 0.5). The results were comparable in both groups regarding 5-year survival rate and cancer-specific survival (p = 0.3 and p = 0.1, respectively). Conclusion RARC showed better perioperative outcomes in the form of less EBL and shortened LOS compared to ORC group. However, both RARC and ORC provide similar postoperative oncologic control, in terms of similar positive surgical margins, cancer-specific rates, and 5-year survival rates.

  • Association of serum soluble α‑klotho with risk of kidney stone
           disease: a population-based cross-sectional study

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Background The aim of the study was to explore the association of serum soluble klotho with kidney stone disease (KSD) in the general population over the age of 40 years in the United States. Methods We integrated the data in National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey from 2007 to 2016 years. The relationship between serum soluble α‑klotho and prevalence of KSD was analyzed by constructing weighted multivariable logistic regression model, restricted cubic spline (RCS) curve, and subgroup analyses. Results In the study, a total of 13,722 individuals were included in our study. A U-shaped association between serum soluble klotho and the risk of KSD was shown by the RCS curve (P value for nonlinear < 0.05). In the full adjusted model, compared with the lowest quartile of serum soluble α‑klotho, the adjusted odd ratios (95% confidence intervals) for KSD across the quartiles were (0.999 (0.859, 1.164), 1.005 (0.858, 1.176), and 1.061 (0.911, 1.235)). Subgroup analyses also showed that the U-shaped association of serum soluble α‑klotho with KSD was found among subjects who were age < 60 years, female or male, with or without hypertension, and BMI ≥ 30 kg/m2. Conclusions Our findings suggested that serum klotho levels had a U-shaped correlation with risk of KSD. When the Klotho level is at 818.66 pg/mL, prevalence of KSD is lowest. Therefore, maintaining a certain level of serum soluble α‑klotho could prevent the occurrence of KSD.

  • Antibiotics efficacy in clinical and microbiological cure of uncomplicated
           urinary tract infection: a systematic review and network meta-analysis

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Purpose Fosfomycin has been used more frequently in managing uncomplicated urinary tract infections (UTIs) due to decreased compliance and increased multidrug-resistant bacteria. The aim of this network meta-analysis was to assess the efficacy of Fosfomycin compared to Nitrofurantoin, Trimethoprim–Sulfamethoxazole (TMP-SMX), and Ciprofloxacin in terms of clinical and microbiological cure alongside with other measurements. Materials and methods We searched MEDLINE, Embase, and Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL). We included randomized control trials (RCTs) with uncomplicated UTI patients who received Fosfomycin, Nitrofurantoin, TMP-SMX, or Ciprofloxacin and reported the clinical or microbiological cure. We used Cochrane Risk of Bias Assessment Tool to assess the included studies’ quality. R-software was used for all statistical analysis. We ranked all antibiotics using the netrank function which yielded P scores. Frequentist network meta-analysis was used to assess the efficacy of all outcomes. Results We included 13 RCTs with a total number of 3856 patients that showed Fosfomycin ranked the highest among the other antibiotics with respect to clinical cure (P-score = 0.99) and microbiological cure (P-score = 0.99) while Ciprofloxacin ranked the lowest (P-score = 0.11 and 0.02, respectively). Moreover, Ciprofloxacin yielded the highest relapse rate (P-score = 1), whereas TMP-SMX had the lowest relapse rate (P-score = 0.07). As for the adverse events, Ciprofloxacin demonstrated the highest adverse events as opposed to Fosfomycin (P-score = 0.98 and 0.05, respectively). Conclusion The network meta-analysis demonstrated that Fosfomycin is the most effective antibiotic in treating uncomplicated UTIs with respect to clinical cure, microbiological cure, and adverse events profile.

  • Causal associations of immune cells with benign prostatic hyperplasia:
           insights from a Mendelian randomization study

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Background Previous research has focused on the association between immune cells and the development of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). Nevertheless, the causal relationships in this context remain uncertain. Methods This study employed a comprehensive and systematic two-sample Mendelian randomization (MR) analysis to determine the causal relationships between immunophenotypes and BPH. We examined the causal associations between 731 immunophenotypes and the risk of BPH by utilizing publicly available genetic data. Integrated sensitivity analyses were performed to validate the robustness, assess heterogeneity, and examine horizontal pleiotropy in the results. Results We discovered that 38 immunophenotypes have a causal effect on BPH. Subsequently, four of these immunophenotypes underwent verification using weighted median, weighted mode, and inverse variance weighted (IVW) algorithms, which included CD19 on CD24+ CD27+, CD19 on naive-mature B cell, HLA DR on CD14− CD16+ and HLA DR+ T cell%lymphocyte. Furthermore, BPH exhibited a significant association with three immunophenotypes: CD19 on IgD+ CD38dim (β = −0.152, 95% CI = 0.746–0.989, P = 0.034), CD19 on IgD+ (β = −0.167, 95% CI = 0.737–0.973, P = 0.019), and CD19 on naive-mature B cell (β = −0.166, 95% CI = 0.737–0.972, P = 0.018). Conclusions Our study provides valuable insights for future clinical investigations by establishing a significant association between immune cells and BPH.

  • Robotic-assisted versus conventional laparoscopic ICG-fluorescence
           lymphatic-sparing palomo varicocelectomy: a comparative retrospective
           study of techniques and outcomes

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Purpose This study aimed to compare techniques and outcomes of robotic-assisted varicocelectomy (RAV) and laparoscopic varicocelectomy (LV). Methods The medical records of 40 patients, who received RAV and LV over a 2-year period, were retrospectively analyzed. Palomo lymphatic-sparing varicocelectomy using ICG fluorescence was adopted in all cases. Three 5-mm trocars were placed in LV, whereas four ports, three 8-mm and one 5-mm, were placed in RAV. The spermatic vessels were ligated using clips in LV and ligatures in RAV. The two groups were compared regarding patient baseline and operative outcomes. Results All patients, with median age of 14 years (range 11–17), had left grade 3 varicocele according to Dubin–Amelar. All were symptomatic and 33/40 (82.5%) presented left testicular hypotrophy. All procedures were completed without conversion. The average operative time was significantly shorter in LV [20 min (range 11–30)] than in RAV [34.5 min (range 30–46)] (p = 0.001). No significant differences regarding analgesic requirement and hospitalization were observed (p = 0.55). At long-term follow-up (30 months), no complications occurred in both groups. The cosmetic outcome was significantly better in LV than RAV at 6-month and 12-month evaluations (p = 0.001). The total cost was significantly lower in LV (1.587,07 €) compared to RAV (5.650,31 €) (p = 0.001). Conclusion RAV can be safely and effectively performed in pediatric patients, with the same excellent outcomes as conventional laparoscopic procedure. Laparoscopy has the advantages of faster surgery, smaller instruments, better cosmesis and lower cost than robotics. To date, laparoscopy remains preferable to robotics to treat pediatric varicocele.

  • Open versus robotic partial nephrectomy in obese patients: a
           multi-institutional propensity score-matched analysis (UroCCR 43—Robese
           study)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Introduction There is limited evidence on the outcomes of robotic partial nephrectomy (RPN) and open partial nephrectomy (OPN) in obese patients (BMI ≥ 30 kg/m2). In this study, we aimed to compare perioperative and oncological outcomes of RPN and OPN. Methods We relied on data from patients who underwent PN from 2009 to 2017 at 16 departments of urology participating in the UroCCR network, which were collected prospectively. In an effort to adjust for potential confounders, a propensity-score matching was performed. Perioperative outcomes were compared between OPN and RPN patients. Disease-free survival (DFS) and overall survival (OS) were estimated using the Kaplan–Meier method and compared using the log-rank test. Results Overall, 1277 obese patients (932 robotic and 345 open were included. After propensity score matching, 166 OPN and 166 RPN individuals were considered for the study purposes; no statistically significant difference among baseline demographic or tumor‐specific characteristics was present. A higher overall complication rate and major complications rate were recorded in the OPN group (37 vs. 25%, p = 0.01 and 21 vs. 10%, p = 0.007; respectively). The length of stay was also significantly longer in the OPN group, before and after propensity-score matching (p < 0.001). There were no significant differences in Warm ischemia time (p = 0.66), absolute change in eGFR (p = 0.45) and positive surgical margins (p = 0.12). At a median postoperative follow-up period of 24 (8–40) months, DFS and OS were similar in the two groups (all p > 0.05). Conclusions In this study, RPN was associated with better perioperative outcomes (improvement of major complications rate and LOS) than OPN. The oncological outcomes were found to be similar between the two approaches.

  • Expected impact of MRI-targeted biopsy interreader variability among
           uropathologists on ProScreen prostate cancer screening trial: a pre-trial
           validation study

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Purpose Prostate cancer (PCa) histology, particularly the Gleason score, is an independent prognostic predictor in PCa. Little is known about the inter-reader variability in grading of targeted prostate biopsy based on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The aim of this study was to assess inter-reader variability in Gleason grading of MRI-targeted biopsy among uropathologists and its potential impact on a population-based randomized PCa screening trial (ProScreen). Methods From June 2014 to May 2018, 100 men with clinically suspected PCa were retrospectively selected. All men underwent prostate MRI and 86 underwent targeted prostate of the prostate. Six pathologists individually reviewed the pathology slides of the prostate biopsies. The five-tier ISUP (The International Society of Urological Pathology) grade grouping (GG) system was used. Fleiss’ weighted kappa (κ) and Model-based kappa for associations were computed to estimate the combined agreement between individual pathologists. Results GG reporting of targeted prostate was highly consistent among the trial pathologists. Inter-reader agreement for cancer (GG1–5) vs. benign was excellent (Model-based kappa 0.90, Fleiss’ kappa κ = 0.90) and for clinically significant prostate cancer (csPCa) (GG2–5 vs. GG0 vs. GG1), it was good (Model-based kappa 0.70, Fleiss’ kappa κ 0.67). Conclusions Inter-reader agreement in grading of MRI-targeted biopsy was good to excellent, while it was fair to moderate for MRI in the same cohort, as previously shown. Importantly, there was wide consensus by pathologists in assigning the contemporary GG on MRI-targeted biopsy suggesting high reproducibility of pathology reporting in the ProScreen trial.
