CONCLUSION: Treatment challenges in such cases are increased due to patient's actual deficits caused by neuronal/biochemical changes. Innovative and multi-pronged rehabilitation strategies which involve everyday activities provided an answer to some of these problems. This method of rehabilitation may provide an optimistic context for future research.

CONCLUSION: Progressive changes in care have contributed to a shorter LOS and increasing rates of SDD for pyeloplasty patients. SDD appears to be feasible and does not result in higher complication rates. These data support the development of a pediatric pyeloplasty ERAS protocol to maximize quicker recovery and foster SDD as a goal.

Lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) secondary to benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) are highly prevalent in older men. The long-term clinical utility of lifestyle modification and oral medications for LUTS is limited. There is a great clinical need for safe, effective, and durable BPH therapies for men who unsuccessfully attempt conservative measures. Enthusiasm for transurethral resection of the prostate has declined due to surgical risk, high rates of postoperative sexual dysfunction, and the...
CONCLUSION: It is essential to consider afferent nipple valve obstruction in a patient with a Kock diversion presenting with bilateral hydronephrosis/hydronephrosis of a solitary kidney, even after many years following the original diversion. Appropriate work-up consists of upper tract imaging, endoscopy and retrograde studies or nephrostomy insertion with nephrostogram. Management options include endoscopic retrograde or antegrade balloon dilation or valve incision. Failing that, surgical...
Trimodal therapy (TMT) for muscle invasive bladder cancer has become an accepted alternative to radical cystectomy and has become integrated into national guidelines as standard a treatment option. The urologist plays a critical role in proper patient selection, thorough transurethral resection, ongoing cystoscopic surveillance and management of local recurrences. There exists multiple patient related and tumor related factors, which contribute to the selection of TMT vs. radical cystectomy for...
