The dysfunctional voiding scoring system: quantitative standardization of dysfunctional voiding symptoms in children.
TLDR
The Dysfunctional Voiding Symptom Score appears to provide accurate and objective, that is, numerical, grading of voiding behaviors of children, and comparative research studies of dysfunctional voiding diagnosis and response to therapy should be aided greatly by this system. Expand
Pediatric testicular tumors: contemporary incidence and efficacy of testicular preserving surgery.
TLDR
The concept of testicular preserving surgery becomes an attractive option since it presents its safety and efficacy and the management algorithm should facilitate the preoperative decision to perform less radical surgery and help preserve testicular tissue. Expand
Outcome analysis and cost comparison between externalized pyeloureteral and standard stents in 470 consecutive open pyeloplasties.
TLDR
The 2 ureteral stents are equivalent in regard to overall complication and success rates after pyeloplasty, however, Salle intraoperative pyELoplasty stent insertion was associated with a Canadian $565 cost decrease per patient and most importantly the preclusion of a second general anesthesia for catheter removal.

Retroperitoneal laparoscopic vs open partial nephroureterectomy in children
TLDR
To compare the results of retroperitoneal laparoscopic with open partial nephroureterectomy, a single procedure is performed with a single patient for each procedure in order to establish a baseline for the second procedure. Expand
Long-term followup and time to event outcome analysis of continent catheterizable channels.
TLDR
Although an initial peak was followed by a relatively stable complication-free period, delayed problems appeared on long-term evaluation and no statistically significant differences in complication rates were noted when comparing use of appendix and reconfigured bowel or different stoma locations. Expand
Sonic hedgehog (Shh) signaling promotes tumorigenicity and stemness via activation of epithelial‐to‐mesenchymal transition (EMT) in bladder cancer
TLDR
TGF‐β1‐induced Shh may regulate EMT and tumorigenicity in bladder cancer and targeting the Shh pathway could be clinically beneficial in the ability to reverse the EMT phenotype of tumor cells and potentially inhibit bladder cancer progression and metastasis. Expand
Comparative analysis of tubularized incised plate versus onlay island flap urethroplasty for penoscrotal hypospadias.
TLDR
Despite similar urethroplasty calibers, the uroflow curves and fistula positions in patients undergoing tubularized incised plate repair suggest that the neourethra distal to the fistula may be relatively narrow, creating flow resistance and leading to proximal fistula. Expand
Overexpression of sonic hedgehog in the triple negative breast cancer: clinicopathological characteristics of high burden breast cancer patients from Bangladesh
TLDR
Analysis of clinicopathological characteristics and prognosis of BC patients from Bangladesh support the contention that Shh could be a novel biomarker for breast cancer that is involved in mediating the aggressive phenotype of BC. Expand
Failed pyeloplasty in children: comparative analysis of retrograde endopyelotomy versus redo pyeloplasty.
TLDR
Retrograde endopyelotomy had a significantly lower success rate than redo pyeloplasty for correction of recurrent ureteropelvic junction obstruction after failed pyELoplasty in children. Expand
22 week assessment of bladder acellular matrix as a bladder augmentation material in a porcine model.
TLDR
Investigation of the feasibility of using BAMA in a similar model of bladder reconstruction out to longer time frames found significant differences in the rupture strain and the elastic modulus of the BAMA compared to native bladder tissue appear to correlate with macroscopic graft contracture as well as the fibroproliferative tissue response of the matrix.
