The Malone antegrade continence enema: single institutional review.
TLDR
The long-term results of the Malone antegrade continence enema channel in a large cohort of patients with neuropathic bowel and chronic constipation are encouraging, and patients/parents should be counseled accordingly. Expand
Vascular endothelial growth factor-mediated autocrine stimulation of prostate tumor cells coincides with progression to a malignant phenotype.
TLDR
Two roles are suggested for VEGF in tumor progression: a paracrine role as an angiogenic factor and a previously undescribed role as a autocrine mediator of tumor cell motility. Expand
Surgery in disorders of sex development (DSD) with a gender issue: If (why), when, and how?
TLDR
There is, however, little evidence provided regarding the impact of non-treated DSD during childhood for the individual development, the parents, society and the risk of stigmatization. Expand
Vesicoureteral reflux: current trends in diagnosis, screening, and treatment.
TLDR
The evidence base for many current management patterns in VUR is limited and areas that could significantly benefit from additional future research include improved identification of children who are at risk for VUR-related renal morbidity, improved stratification tools for determining which children would benefit most from which VUR treatment option, and improved reporting of long-term outcomes of VUR treatments. Expand
Management of perinatal torsion: today, tomorrow or never?
TLDR
The collective experience with bilateral perinatal torsion is described, solidifying the recommendation for early exploration and empiric contralateral orchiopexy for all cases of perinata testicular torsions. Expand
Long-term outcomes of catheterizable continent urinary channels: What do you use, where you put it, and does it matter?
TLDR
Durable long-term results with the APV and Monti techniques are demonstrated, with the risk of channel complications continues over the channel's lifetime, with no difference in stomal complications between channels. Expand
Testicular microlithiasis in children and associated testicular cancer.
TLDR
TM has a prevalence of 2% in boys who undergo scrotal US and is most commonly bilateral, classic type, and stable at follow-up studies, and there is a significant association of TM and testicular tumors. Expand
p38 MAPK mediates renal tubular cell TNF-alpha production and TNF-alpha-dependent apoptosis during simulated ischemia.
TLDR
The initial demonstration that p38 MAPK mediates renal tubular cell TNF-alpha production and T NF-alpha-dependent apoptosis after SI is constituted, and it is demonstrated that kidney tubular cells produce and undergo apoptosis in response to SI. Expand
Improved bladder function after prophylactic treatment of the high risk neurogenic bladder in newborns with myelomentingocele.
TLDR
Identification and early proactive treatment of the high pressure, dyssynergic lower urinary tract significantly decreases the need for bladder augmentation as children with neurogenic bladder secondary to myelomeningocele mature. Expand
Estimating normal bladder capacity in children.
TLDR
The relationship between normal bladder capacity and age in children follows a nonlinear curve and can be approximated by 2 practical linear formulas that are easy to remember and are derived from a larger population than any prior study. Expand
