Urinary tract infections in women.
Epidemiology and pathogenesis of urinary tract infection in women is reviewed; common patterns of infection, clinical red flags, and appropriate laboratory testing and imaging are characterized; emerging patterns of antimicrobial resistance are explored; and updated guidelines for the treatment of uncomplicated UTI in women are reviewed.

Targeted antimicrobial prophylaxis using rectal swab cultures in men undergoing transrectal ultrasound guided prostate biopsy is associated with reduced incidence of postoperative infectious
Targeted antimicrobial prophylaxis was associated with a notable decrease in the incidence of infectious complications after transrectal ultrasound guided prostate biopsy caused by fluoroquinolone resistant organisms as well as a decreases in the overall cost of care. Expand
Chronic bacterial prostatitis and chronic pelvic pain syndrome.
INTRODUCTION Chronic prostatitis can cause pain and urinary symptoms, and can occur either with an active infection (chronic bacterial prostatitis [CBP]) or with only pain and no evidence ofExpand
Erectile function after posterior urethroplasty for pelvic fracture‐urethral distraction defect injuries
To determine the specific effect of pelvic fracture‐urethral distraction defect (PFUDD) injuries on erectile function (EF) in men after pelvic fractures, and to compare EF to that found in otherExpand
Impact of Age and Comorbidities on Use of Sacral Neuromodulation
Older patients experienced no difference in the sacral nerve stimulation response in stimulation trials and no different in the implantation rate, which suggests that age alone should not negatively predict sacrals nerve stimulation responses. Expand
Risk of urethral stricture recurrence increases over time after urethroplasty
To report a single institutional experience with urethroplasty outcomes and success rates at long‐term follow up, three institutions from around the world are asked to share their experiences. Expand
Are HIV-Infected Men Vulnerable to Prostate Cancer Treatment Disparities?
Prostate cancer in HIV+ men is largely appropriately treated and under- or overtreatment may occur from difficulties in life expectancy estimation, according to National Comprehensive Cancer Network guidelines and Charlson comorbidity index. Expand
Refinement and validation of the urethral stricture score in categorizing anterior urethral stricture complexity.
The U-score is a validated scale to describe the complexity of anterior urethral strictures that correlates with surgical time and complexity of procedure. Expand
Sacral Neuromodulation Device Heating During Lumbar and Pelvic Magnetic Resonance Imaging-a Phantom Study.
These tests provide preliminary evidence that the risk of heating is low for clinical lumbar and pelvic MRI at 1.5-Tesla with an intact sacral neuromodulation device system and with a fractured lead, however, there is a significant temperature change in the intact lead model. Expand
Radiation-Induced Angiosarcoma After Mastectomy and TRAM Flap Breast Reconstruction
This is the first reported case of postradiation angiosarcoma occurring in a postmastectomy breast reconstructed with autogenous tissue and it is unusual in that the cancer invaded the musculocutaneous flap. Expand
