  • Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) and priapism: An unexplored

    • Authors: Malinga; Dominic Mpumelelo; Laher, Abdullah E.; McDowall, Jared; Adam, Ahmed
      Abstract: imageBackground: Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) has an established impact on multiple organ systems, including the vascular and urogenital systems. Vascular effects may include venous thromboembolic disease, which could theoretically be a precursor to priapism—a urological emergency defined as an abnormal condition of prolonged penile erection lasting>4 hours. To better explore this association, we critically appraised all the published COVID-19 cases associated with priapism.Materials and methods: After PROSPERO registration (CRD42021245257), a systematic search of Google Scholar, Scopus, Embase, Web of Science, PubMed, Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature, Global Index Medicus, and Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews was performed using specific search terms. The following study metadata were extracted: age, requirement for respiratory support, cavernous blood gas findings, management of priapism, and patient outcomes.Results: Fifteen single-patient case reports were included in this review. Of these, all of the patients presented with ischemic priapism, 9 patients (60.0%) were>60 years of age, 4 (26.7%) reported more than a single episode of priapism, 11 (73.3%) presented with pneumonia, 8 (53.3%) required mechanical ventilation, D-dimer was elevated in 5 of the 6 (83.3%) patients in whom this was reported, and among the 13 patients in whom mortality was reported, 4 (30.8%) died.Conclusions: Early reports suggest a prognostic relationship between COVID-19 and coexisting priapism. However, owing to commonalities in their pathophysiology and the small dataset reported in the literature, the probable association between COVID-19 and priapism is still theoretical. Further research is needed to confirm this association.

  • A short review of male genito-urinary lesions caused by coronavirus
           disease 2019

    • Authors: Sun; Xun; Lyu, Jiaju
      Abstract: Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a novel infectious disease that has spread worldwide since it first appeared in December 2019. It can cause pathologies in several organs of the body through direct and indirect mechanisms. After more than two years of study, the effects of COVID-19 on the genitourinary system are now well-evidenced as COVID-19 has considerable effects on the kidneys, testes, vas deferens, epididymis, seminal vesicles, prostate, and penis. Renal invasion is mainly characterized by acute kidney injury. Testicular invasion is characterized by orchitis, testicular epididymitis, etc. Although COVID-19 has been suspected to spread via serum, evidence for the presence of the virus in the semen of patients is currently scarce. COVID-19 also impacts the sexual function of patients to varying degrees, with some patients developing erectile dysfunction. The underlying mechanisms of COVID-19 invasion into the genitourinary system have not been clearly identified, and more clinical studies are required. This review discusses the impact of COVID-19 on the genitourinary system and male health.

  • The effects of social distancing and self-isolation on functional outcomes
           after radical prostatectomy during the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19)

    • Authors: Barakat; Bara; Schakaki, Samer; Vögeli, Thomas-Alexander
      Abstract: imageBackground: This study is aimed to analyze the effect of social distancing on functional outcomes (potency, continence recovery, and quality of life) on patients undergoing open radical prostatectomy (ORP) and robot-assisted radical prostatectomy (RARP) during the COVID-19 pandemic.Materials and methods: We retrospectively assessed functional outcomes of 55 consecutive patients who underwent radical prostatectomy during the COVID-19 pandemic (group A: 12 ORP and 15 RARP) and compared these data with patients from the previous year (group B: 13 ORP and 15 RARP). Propensity-score matching was performed to analyze variables associated with potency, continence recovery and compared between the groups at 1 and 3months.Results: Patients from group A were less interested in postsurgical rehabilitation compared to those from group B (95.7% vs. 56.2%, p  = 0.042). Continence recovery among group B patients also tended to be higher for RARP (p  = 0.06) and ORP (p  = 0.08) at 1 month, although statistical significance was not reached. The cumulative continence recovery at 3 months among group B patients was higher and statistically significantly advantageous for RARP (p  = 0.00) and ORP (p

  • Better outcomes with desmopressin melt than enuretic alarm therapy in
           children with nocturnal enuresis during coronavirus disease 2019

    • Authors: Unal; Umut; Anil, Hakan; Deniz, Mehmet Eflatun; Vuruskan, Ediz; Altunkol, Adem; Ercil, Hakan
      Abstract: imageObjectives: This study aimed to investigate the effect of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic on the treatment of children with primary monosymptomatic nocturnal enuresis (MNE) with desmopressin melt versus an enuresis alarm.Materials and methods: This study included 56 children with primary MNE who were taking desmopressin melt or using an alarm. Their anxiety levels were evaluated using the Social Anxiety Scale for Children-Revised. For both treatment methods, data from a 3-month bedwetting diary between the third and sixth months of the pre-pandemic treatment were compared with those assessed during the same period during the pandemic.Results: Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, the median 3-month mean frequency of MNE was 1 (0–7.67) in children using desmopressin melt versus 1.33 (0–6) in those using alarm treatment (p = 0.095). During the COVID-19 pandemic period, the median monthly mean frequency of MNE was 1.33 (0–7.33) in children using desmopressin melt versus 6 (1.33–13) in those using alarm treatment (p

  • Wunderlich syndrome, an unexpected urological complication in a patient
           with coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19): A case report

    • Authors: Presicce; Fabrizio; Martini, Marco; Minisola, Francesco; Falavolti, Cristina; Filianoti, Alessio
      Abstract: imageWe describe the first case of Wunderlich syndrome as a hemorrhagic complication in a patient with severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 infection and acute respiratory distress syndrome. The possible underlying pathophysiological mechanisms have been extensively discussed. Emergency management included selective angioembolization of the upper polar arterial branches of the left kidney and discontinuation of thromboprophylaxis. The patient was discharged after 18 days. No other localizations or local recurrence of bleeding occurred during the hospitalization. Our report suggests a broad spectrum of clinical manifestations in patients with coronavirus disease 2019. As observed in our clinical case, in addition to thrombotic complications, bleeding is a significant cause of morbidity in coronavirus disease 2019 patients. Further studies should determine whether these urological bleeding sequelae are a direct manifestation of the infection or an indirect effect of thromboprophylaxis.

  • The role of imaging in immunoglobulin G4-related disease of the upper
           urinary tract

    • Authors: Taktak; Samih; El-Taji, Omar; Venugopal, Suresh
      Abstract: imageBackground: Immunoglobulin G4-related disease remains a modern, relatively unknown field in the urological world. An increasing number of cases require urological input, often with invasive diagnostics and aggressive medical treatment first-line. Given this, we sought to evaluate modern radiological options of disease affecting the upper urinary tract, to provide clarity and reduce diagnostic burden and delay in this poorly understood yet potentially debilitating disease process.Summary: We conducted a systematic literature search including PubMed and Medline, focusing on immunoglobulin G4-related disease affecting the upper urinary tract, before reviewing articles assessing different radiological modalities in diagnosis. Consistent computed tomography findings have been demonstrated in the literature and contributed to recent breakthroughs in classification criteria, however invasive biopsy remains a mainstay in work-up, given the difficulties in comparing against malignancy. Early work in positron-emission tomography and magnetic resonance imaging has shown promise in radiologically distinguishing from other differentials, especially diffusion-weighted imaging showing high sensitivity levels, but not yet enough to formulate protocols and cause histological investigation to be redundant.Key messages: Our article has highlighted repeated findings in the literature of computed tomography appearances of IgG4-RD in the upper urinary tract, however invasive work-up remains a mainstay given the overlap with malignancy. Prospective, comparative studies into magnetic resonance imaging and positron-emission tomography are now required, given their early results, to improve consistency in reporting and reduce patient burden when investigating this benign, yet debilitating disease process.

    • Authors: Lundy; Scott D.; Hauser, Nicholas; Wood, Hadley; Fergany, Amr; Angermeier, Kenneth
      Abstract: imageBackground: This study is aimed to describe our institutional experience and review the literature to date on prostatosymphyseal fistula (PSF), or puboprostatic fistula, following bladder outlet procedures such as transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) or laser photoselective vaporization of the prostate (PVP).Materials and methods: We retrospectively queried our institutional experience for management of PSF following PVP performed for symptomatic benign prostatic hyperplasia. We also performed a systematic literature review for PSF following PVP or TURP. Finally, we describe our surgical approach to the management of this challenging condition.Results: We identified 7 cases of PSF following PVP from our institution, as well as an additional 7 cases following PVP and 9 cases following TURP from literature review. The diagnosis of PSF was made between 0.5 and 24 months following PVP, and the most specific symptoms were pubic pain and difficulty ambulating. Most patients requiring several evaluations before the diagnosis was made using appropriate imaging studies. Seventy percent of patients required surgical intervention including fistula repair or prostatectomy. Our surgical approach has evolved, and we now routinely perform robotic fistula repair with Y-V plasty and interposition flap with excellent results.Conclusions: Puboprostatic fistula is a rare and poorly described complication of PVP or TURP. To the best of our knowledge, this case series of PSF following PVP represents the largest series to date and doubles the number of reported cases in the literature. Robotic fistula repair with interposition of either peritoneal or perivesical fat flaps appears to be a viable management strategy.

  • Decreasing susceptibility of bacteria to ampicillin/ sulbactam and third
           generation cephalosporins in urinary tract infections

    • Authors: Vallo; Stefan; Wirth, Patrick; Kukic, Adnan; Nafez, Omar; Neagoe, Ladislau; Nestler, Sebastian; Jones, Jon
      Abstract: imageBackground: Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are among the most common bacterial infections worldwide and have become more difficult to treat over the years. Inappropriate antibiotic use has led to increased antibiotic resistance.Materials and methods: We examined 1921 urine culture samples from a single hospital and analyzed them for bacterial spectrum and antibiotic susceptibility. We further analyzed changes in the rates of detected bacteria and of the sensitivity of these uropathogens to antibiotics over the years.Results: In our hospital-based analysis, cystitis was the most frequently diagnosed UTI in women (76%) and men (79%). Escherichia coli (48%) was the most commonly identified uropathogen. Samples demonstrated an increase in the proportion of E. coli (p

  • Circulating tumor cells and cell-free tumor DNA analyses in urothelial
           cancer using the LiquidBiopsy platform

    • Authors: Kobayashi; Minoru; Abe, Hideyuki; Arai, Kyoko; Murakami, Satoshi; Kamai, Takao
      Abstract: imageBackground: Emerging data suggested that liquid biopsy such as detection of circulating tumor cells (CTCs) and cell-free tumor DNA analysis augments the management of patients with urothelial cancer (UC). We presented our pilot experience of liquid biopsy using the Ion Torrent platform to detect CTCs and genomic alterations in UC.Materials and methods: Blood or urine samples from 16 patients were subjected to CTC and plasma/urine cell-free tumor DNA isolation for next generation sequencing (NGS) using the Ion S5 system to detect mutations among 50 oncogenes on the Ion AmpliSeq Cancer Hotspot Panel.Results: The Ion Torrent platform detected a higher number of CTCs than those in previous studies using the CellSearchTM system. Overall, mutations were detected in 13/16 (81.3%) patients with a median number of 18 (range 12–25). NGS isolated 17 hotspot mutations from 11 genes and 41 novel genomic alterations from 24 genes, some of which are supposed to be clinically actionable.Conclusions: The Ion Torrent platform efficiently detected CTCs compared with previous reports. NGS with the present system also allowed for detection of gene alterations which are likely to be therapeutic targets and provided an attractive tool to guide personalized therapy for patients with advanced UC.

  • Ductal adenocarcinoma of the prostate or seminal vesicle adenocarcinoma:
           An multi-disciplinary team (MDT) case report and literature review

    • Authors: Ning; Hao; Song, Yufeng; Wu, Haihu; Gao, Dexuan; Lyu, Jiaju
      Abstract: imageWe introduced a 61-year-old male with ductal adenocarcinoma of the prostate who underwent a tortuous diagnosis and treatment. Multi-disciplinary team meetings organized by our hospital have shown great value in the whole process. The patient presented with gross hematuria accompanied by frequent urination initially, and was diagnosed with ductal adenocarcinoma of the prostate involving right seminal vesicle gland and urethra by urethroscopy biopsy. The clinical stage of tumor was T3bN0M0. After 4 cycles of neoadjuvant chemotherapy, the tumor shrank significantly and the patient underwent a laparoscopic radical prostatectomy. But the patient declined to continue chemotherapy postoperatively. After 10 months, the serum prostatic specific antigen increased to 0.05 ng/mL, and multiple metastases were found in the patient's bilateral lungs. However, an unexpected diagnosis of seminal vesicle adenocarcinoma was put forward from another hospital after supplementary pathologic immunohistochemical examination. Then, after careful discussion and demonstration by our multi-disciplinary team experts, we insisted on the diagnosis of ductal adenocarcinoma of the prostate and suggested that the original regimen of chemotherapy should be continued. Up-to-date, 14 months after the operation, the patient continues to survive while undergoing ongoing active treatment as recommended.

  • Hem-o-lok-free and Retzius-sparing robot-assisted laparoscopic radical
           prostatectomy with retrograde release of the neurovascular bundle

    • Authors: Wang; Yong; Liu, Zihao; Huang, Hua; Ma, Yuan; Niu, Yuanjie
      Abstract: Background: Robot-assisted laparoscopic radical prostatectomy (RARP) has gradually become the standard surgical procedure for prostate cancer. This video, aimed to demonstrate a new and improved surgical approach for prostate cancer that passes through the pouch of Douglas and allows retrograde release of the neurovascular bundle (NVB). The technique is Hem-o-lok-free and Retzius-sparing and is performed without opening the pelvic floor fascia during RARP.Methods: A 69-year-old man was diagnosed with prostate cancer (clinical stage T2bN0M0). We followed the process of Retzius-sparing RARP [published by Galfano et al. in 2013] and did some modification. The critical technical points associated with this technique included locating the fascial layer at the prostatic apex and performing complete retrograde release of the NVB along the anatomical structure. We used diathermy to perform precision hemostasis on large vessels, especially those around the basal part of prostate, with relatively less damage. In addition, Hem-o-lok was not used in this procedure.Results: Negative surgical margin and stage T2bN0M0 were confirmed. Continence was achieved immediately after cathter removal. One month after surgery, prostate specific antigen was undetectable. Erectile function was preserved 3 months postoperatively.Conclusions: Hem-o-lok-free and Retzius-sparing RARP is a feasible surgical approach that combines the benefits of complete retrograde release of the NVB, preserving the nerves and vascular structures around the prostate, protecting the pelvic floor structure, and ensuring rapid recovery of micturition control.
