Systematic review and meta-analysis of studies reporting urinary continence recovery after robot-assisted radical prostatectomy.
TLDR
This systematic review of literature shows, for the first time, a statistically significant advantage in favor of RARP in comparison with both RRP and LRP in terms of 12-mo urinary continence recovery.
Naturally Occurring Human Urinary Peptides for Use in Diagnosis of Chronic Kidney Disease*
TLDR
The establishment of a reproducible, high resolution method for peptidome analysis of naturally occurring human urinary peptides and proteins, ranging from 800 to 17,000 Da, using samples from 3,600 individuals analyzed by capillary electrophoresis coupled to MS is reported.
Systematic review and meta-analysis of perioperative outcomes and complications after robot-assisted radical prostatectomy.
TLDR
RARP can be performed routinely with a relatively small risk of complications, and transfusion rates were lower with RARP than with LRP, although all other features were similar regardless of the surgical approach.
180-W XPS GreenLight laser vaporisation versus transurethral resection of the prostate for the treatment of benign prostatic obstruction: 6-month safety and efficacy results of a European Multicentre
TLDR
XPS was shown to be noninferior (comparable) to TURP in terms of IPSS, Qmax, and proportion of patients free of complications and PV and PVR were comparable between groups.
A European multicenter randomized noninferiority trial comparing 180 W GreenLight XPS laser vaporization and transurethral resection of the prostate for the treatment of benign prostatic obstruction:
TLDR
Followup at 1 year demonstrated that photoselective vaporization of the prostate produced efficacy outcomes similar to those of transurethral resection of the Prostate Symptom Score, and confirmed the therapeutic durability of both procedures.
Laparoendoscopic single-site surgery in urology: worldwide multi-institutional analysis of 1076 cases.
TLDR
This study provides a global view of the evolution of LESS in the field of minimally invasive urologic surgery and shows that a broad range of procedures have been effectively performed, primarily in the academic setting, within diverse health care systems around the world.
Effects of tadalafil treatment on erectile function recovery following bilateral nerve-sparing radical prostatectomy: a randomised placebo-controlled study (REACTT).
TLDR
Tadalafil once daily was most effective on drug-assisted EF in men with erectile dysfunction following NSRP, and data suggest a potential role for tadalafils once daily provided early after surgery in contributing to the recovery of EF after prostatectomy and possibly protecting from penile structural changes.
Endoscopic extraperitoneal radical prostatectomy: oncological and functional results after 700 procedures.
TLDR
The data demonstrate that EERPE can be performed with equal efficacy and results compared with laparoscopic transperitoneal radical prostatectomy, while providing the ease and safety of a totally extraperitoneals approach, completely avoiding intraperitoneAL complications.
What do retinal Müller (glial) cells do for their neuronal ‘small siblings’?
TLDR
It is shown that isolated Müller cells rapidly hydrolyse glycogen when they are exposed to an elevated extracellular K+ ion concentration, a signal that is involved in the regulation of neuronal-glial metabolic cooperation in the brain.
Laparoendoscopic single-site and natural orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery in urology: a critical analysis of the literature.
TLDR
Developing instrumentation and application of robotic technology are expected to define the actual role of these techniques in minimally invasive urologic surgery, with robotics likely to drive a major paradigm shift in the development of LESS and NOTES.
