    Title Selective Renal Parenchymal Clamping in Robot-assisted Laparoscopic Partial Nephrectomy: a Multi-institutional Experience.
    Date January 2012
    Journal Journal of Endourology / Endourological Society
    Excerpt

    We describe our multi-institutional experience using a laparoscopic clamp to induce selective regional ischemia during robot-assisted laparoscopic partial nephrectomy (RALPN) without hilar occlusion.

    Title Second Prize: Recurrence Rates After Percutaneous and Laparoscopic Renal Cryoablation of Small Renal Masses: Does the Approach Make a Difference?
    Date June 2011
    Journal Journal of Endourology / Endourological Society
    Excerpt

    As radiologic detection of small renal masses increases, patients are increasingly offered percutaneous renal cryoablation (PRC) or transperitoneal laparoscopic renal cryoablation (TLRC). This multicenter experience compares these approaches.

    Title Practice Patterns of Primary Care Providers and Urologists for Use of Medical Expulsion Therapy.
    Date December 2010
    Journal Military Medicine
    Excerpt

    Alpha-blockers and calcium channel blockers have shown promise for medical expulsion therapy (MET) of distal ureteral calculi < 1 cm in size. Although MET has been discussed in urology for some time, little has been written about MET in the emergency medicine and primary care literature. We sought to evaluate current practice patterns of MET among urologists, emergency medicine physicians, other primary care providers, and frontline military care providers.

    Title Analysis of Ureteric Stent Kinking Forces: the Role of Curvature in Stent Failure.
    Date April 2010
    Journal Bju International
    Excerpt

    To further characterize the kinking forces and degree of curvature that result in failure of various stents, as malignant obstruction of the ureter causes failure of about half of ureteric stents.

    Title Do Nonspecific Deep Corticomedullary Sutures Performed During Partial Nephrectomy Adequately Control Major Vascular and Collecting System Injury?
    Date March 2010
    Journal Bju International
    Excerpt

    To critically evaluate the effectiveness of placing nonspecific deep corticomedullary sutures in the setting of major vascular and collecting system injury during laparoscopic partial nephrectomy (LPN). We also aimed to evaluate the incidence of ischaemic injury to the remaining renal remnant because of these sutures, as many laparoscopic centres have adopted this practice.

    Title Analysis of Ureteral Stent Compression Force and Its Role in Malignant Obstruction.
    Date January 2009
    Journal The Journal of Urology
    Excerpt

    Extrinsic ureteral obstruction can be a challenging entity for the urologist since half of the ureteral stents placed for malignant obstruction fail. We evaluated the resistance to radial compression of various stents.

    Title Important Military Role for Medical Expulsion Therapy of Urolithiasis.
    Date June 2008
    Journal Military Medicine
    Excerpt

    Kidney stones are a major problem affecting military personnel and may lead to decreases in individual and unit readiness. Various medications, including steroids, calcium channel blockers, and alpha-adrenergic antagonists have been shown to aid in the spontaneous passage of ureteral calculi. Several recent randomized clinical trials have shown that selective alpha blockers improve stone passage rates. Although medical expulsion therapy has been the subject of a number of urologic investigations, to date there has been very little written about the acute medical management of urinary stones in the emergency medicine and primary care literature. Medical management of ureteral stones may offer forward-deployed forces a useful adjunct for the management of ureterolithiasis thereby greatly reducing the need for potentially hazardous evacuations out of theater.

    Title A Naval Surgeon's Approach to the Draining Umbilicus.
    Date January 2008
    Journal Journal of Laparoendoscopic & Advanced Surgical Techniques. Part A
    Excerpt

    Spontaneous umbilical drainage is an uncommon problem in the adult, for which various congenital or acquired conditions may be responsible. In this paper, we present 3 cases demonstrating an approach that avoids the need for expensive diagnostic imaging. A careful office exam and basic laparoscopic skills are all that is needed. A brief discussion and review of the literature follows.

    Title Effect of Obesity on Prostate-specific Antigen Recurrence After Radiation Therapy for Localized Prostate Cancer As Measured by the 2006 Radiation Therapy Oncology Group-american Society for Therapeutic Radiation and Oncology (rtog-astro) Phoenix Consensus Definition.
    Date October 2007
    Journal Cancer
    Excerpt

    BACKGROUND: Given the limited data regarding the impact of obesity on treatment outcomes after external beam radiation therapy (EBRT) for the definitive treatment of prostate cancer, the authors sought to evaluate the effect of obesity as measured by body mass index (BMI) on biochemical disease recurrence (BCR) using the most current 2006 Radiation Therapy Oncology Group-American Society for Therapeutic Radiation and Oncology (RTOG-ASTRO) Phoenix consensus definition (prostate-specific antigen [PSA] nadir + 2 ng/mL). METHODS: A retrospective cohort study identified men who underwent primary EBRT for localized prostate cancer between 1989 and 2003 using the Center for Prostate Disease Research (CPDR) Multi-center National Database. BMI was calculated (in kg/m(2)) and the data were analyzed. Univariate and multivariate Cox proportional hazards regression analyses were used to determine whether BMI significantly predicted BCR. RESULTS: Of the 1868 eligible patients, 399 (21%) were obese. The median age of the patients and pretreatment PSA level were 70.2 years and 8.2 ng/mL, respectively. Of 1320 patients for whom data were available with which to calculate PSA recurrence (PSA nadir + 2 ng/mL), a total of 554 men (42.0%) experienced BCR. On univariate analysis, BMI was found to be an independent predictor of PSA recurrence (P = .02), as was race, pretreatment PSA level, EBRT dose, clinical T classification, Gleason score, PSA nadir, and the use of androgen-deprivation therapy (ADT). On multivariate analysis, BMI remained a significant predictor of BCR (P = .008). CONCLUSIONS: To the authors' knowledge, this is the first study to report the association between obesity and BCR after EBRT for localized prostate cancer as measured by the updated 2006 RTOG-ASTRO definition. A higher BMI is associated with greater odds of BCR after undergoing definitive EBRT.

    Title Retroperitoneoscopic Radical Nephrectomy for Renal-cell Carcinoma During Twin Pregnancy.
    Date October 2007
    Journal Journal of Endourology / Endourological Society
    Excerpt

    Renal-cell carcinoma (RCC) is rarely reported during pregnancy. Both the open and the laparoscopic approach to nephrectomy have been used effectively and safely in pregnant patients with RCC. We report a unique case of a 52-year-old woman found to have RCC during twin gestation who was treated with retroperitoneoscopic radical nephrectomy, one of the first such cases managed by this approach.

    Title Bilateral Testicular Infarction and Orchiectomy As a Complication of Polyarteritis Nodosa.
    Date
    Journal Reviews in Urology
    Excerpt

    We report an unusual case of a 28-year-old male with constitutional symptoms and bilateral testicular pain. After diagnosis of cytomegalovirus (CMV) hepatitis, his constitutional symptoms and testicular pain worsened despite treatment for epididymoorchitis. Ultrasound was concerning for infarction. Exploration in the operating room revealed bilateral testicular infarction requiring bilateral orchiectomy with subsequent androgen hormone replacement. Pathologic diagnosis was polyarteritis nodosa (PAN). PAN is a rare systemic vasculitis that affects multiple organs. There are no previous reports of PAN-induced vasculitis leading to bilateral testicular infarction and bilateral orchiectomy.

    Title Laparoscopic and Percutaneous Cryotherapy for Renal Neoplasms.
    Date
    Journal Panminerva Medica
    Excerpt

    Incidence of renal cell carcinoma is increasing. There has been a shift towards utilization of nephron sparing surgery when feasible. Minimally invasive ablative treatments such as laparoscopic and percutaneous renal cryoablation aim to treat renal tumors with the two goals of cancer eradication and reduced morbidity compared to excisional surgical approaches. In this article, we review the basis of cryobiology and examine the current role of renal cryoablation and analyze the current literature focusing on laparoscopic and percutaneous approaches and discuss future directions and refinements in cryosurgical technology. While renal cryoablation is associated with higher local retreatment rates compared to radical or partial nephrectomy, emerging reports of intermediate-term oncological outcomes suggest disease-specific survival approaching that of extirpative surgery. Further follow up is needed to elucidate the long-term oncologic outcomes of and effects on renal function by renal cryoablation.
