  • What's New in Bipolar TURP for Surgical Management of BPH? [Journal Article]
    Chirurgia (Bucur). 2020 May-Jun; 115(3):307-313.Ene C, Geavlete P, Geavlete B
  • Transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) is still considered the gold standard for male lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) secondary to benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), but new methods like bipolar TURP became a real treatment alternative. Bipolar resection presents many option for the effective resection of the prostate: the most similar with m-TURP is represented by the loop resection…
  • A case of flank pain caused by ureteral intussusception accompanied with ureteral polyp. [Journal Article]
    BMC Nephrol. 2020 Jul 01; 21(1):246.Dong Y, Zhang WD, … Han CH
  • CONCLUSIONS: This is the first report that describes polyp-related ureteral intussusception using comprehensive and representative ureteroscopic images and video. Our findings suggest that ureteroscopy is vital for diagnosis. Extensive biopsies through ureteroscopy are less invasive, and make it easier to exclude the presence of ureteral malignancies. Ureteroscopic resection of the whole polyp with its stalk and intussusceptum using Holmium: YAG laser did not seem viable in this case. However, cauterization of partial polyp tissues followed by open surgery for segmental resection of the ureter with reanastomosis is helpful in controlling such patient well-being.
  • Long-term outcomes of HoLEP: a 5-year single-centre experience. [Journal Article]
    J Endourol. 2020 Jun 27 [Online ahead of print]Enikeev D, Taratkin MS, … Glybochko PV
  • CONCLUSIONS: The improvement of PVR, Qmax, IPSS and QOL score seen in the early postoperative period after performing HoLEP remains evident at 5 years post-operatively. Long-term complications and the need for reoperation do not depend on the age of the patient or on the initial volume of the prostate.
  • Dose-effect relationships of holmium-166 radioembolization in colorectal cancer. [Journal Article]
    J Nucl Med. 2020 Jun 26 [Online ahead of print]van Roekel C, Bastiaannet R, … Lam MGEH
  • INTRODUCTION: Radioembolization is a treatment option for colorectal cancer (CRC) patients with inoperable, chemorefractory hepatic metastases. Personalized treatment requires established dose thresholds. Hence, the aim of this study was to explore the relation between dose and effect (i.e. response and toxicity) in CRC patients treated with holmium-166 (166Ho) radioembolization. MATERIALS AND M…
  • Ten-year Follow-up Results After Holmium Laser Enucleation of the Prostate. [Journal Article]
    Eur Urol Focus. 2020 Jun 21 [Online ahead of print]Fallara G, Capogrosso P, … Montorsi F
  • CONCLUSIONS: At surgery, median (interquartile range) age was 66 years (61, 69), prostate volume was 78ml (56, 105), and PFR was 9ml/s (7, 12). All patients showed favorable outcomes (ie, IPSS and uroflowmetry parameters) 6 months after surgery. At median 126-month FU, PFR was 16ml/s (13, 23), PVR was 10ml (5, 15), total IPSS was 5 (1-7), and PSA was 0.7 ng/ml (0.4, 1.3). Of all, 32 patients (26%) were symptomatic at long-term FU, seven (5.7%) reported urinary incontinence, and six (4.7%) underwent redo surgery throughout the FU period due to either bladder neck contracture or urethral stricture. Older patients at surgery (odds ratio [OR]: 1.12; 95% confidence interval [CI]: 1.03-1.22; p=0.006) and patients who never recovered full continence postoperatively (OR: 0.49; 95% CI: 0.01-0.27; p=0.001) were at a higher risk of being symptomatic at very long-term FU, after adjusting for baseline clinical characteristics.HoLEP ensures a durable relief of urinary symptoms in almost 75% of patients up to 10 years after surgery. Older patients and those who do not recover from incontinence after surgery should be counseled carefully regarding a higher risk of symptom recurrence at long-term assessment.
  • Treatment of recurrent renal transplant lithiasis: analysis of our experience and review of the relevant literature. [Journal Article]
    BMC Nephrol. 2020 Jun 23; 21(1):238.Li X, Li B, … Zhang J
  • CONCLUSIONS: Due to the lack of specific symptoms in the early stage, patients with renal transplant lithiasis may have delayed diagnosis and present ARF. Minimally invasive treatment is optimal, and the combined usage of two or more procedures is beneficial for patients. After surgery, taking anticalculus drugs, correcting metabolic disorders and avoiding UIT are key measures to prevent the recurrence of lithiasis.
  • The Evolution of Endoscopic Prostate Enucleation: A historical perspective. [Review]
    Andrologia. 2020 Jun 17 [Online ahead of print]Reddy SK, Utley V, Gilling PJ
  • Here, we review the evolution of prostate enucleation in chronological order based on energy technology starting first with holmium laser, then bipolar electrocautery, followed by thulium laser and finally greenlight and diode laser enucleation of the prostate.
  • Sexual outcomes of endoscopic enucleation of prostate. [Review]
    Andrologia. 2020 Jun 19 [Online ahead of print]Cheng BK, Li TC, Yu CH
  • The emergence of various endoscopic enucleation techniques in the past decade has provided surgeons with more options and opportunities in performing enucleation. With the same surgical principle as holmium laser enucleation of prostate, the early results of different techniques were comparable. However, sexual outcomes of endoscopic enucleation of the prostate (EEP) were less commonly reported t…
  • Structural and spectroscopic study of Ho3+ -doped nanotitania host prepared using a sol-gel technique. [Journal Article]
    Luminescence. 2020 Jun 16 [Online ahead of print]Ameen MA, Arif GK
  • Holmium (Ho3+)-doped TiO2 solid laser active materials with different concentrations (1, 3, 5, and 7 wt%) of Ho3+ ions were prepared using a sol-gel method. A structural study of the samples using X-ray diffraction (XRD) revealed the anatase phase of pure and doped TiO2 calcined at 500°C, which is confirmed by (101), (004), (200), (105), (211), (204), (116), (220) and (215) diffraction peaks. XRD…
  • Thermal effect of holmium laser during ureteroscopic lithotripsy. [Journal Article]
    BMC Urol. 2020 Jun 15; 20(1):69.Liang H, Liang L, … Liang X
  • CONCLUSIONS: We clarify that the thermal effect of holmium laser is related with both laser working parameters and irrigation flow. The proper setting is the key factor to ensure the safety during ureteroscopic holmium laser lithotripsy.
  • Robotic-Assisted Simple Prostatectomy: A Systematic Review. [Review]
    J Clin Med. 2020 Jun 09; 9(6)Kordan Y, Canda AE, … de la Rosette J
  • Contemporary minimally invasive surgical (MIS) treatment options of patients with male Lower Urinary Tract Symptoms (LUTS) in men with prostate glands >80 mL include Holmium Laser Enucleation Prostate (HoLEP), Thulium laser VapoEnucleation Prostate (ThuVEP), and Laparoscopic (LSP) or Robotic-Assisted Simple Prostatectomy (RASP). Implementing new laser technologies is costly, and the steep learnin…
