    Title Communication Between the Ureter and an Aortic Aneurysm Sac After an Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Repair.
    Date April 2008
    Journal Urology

    Fistulae between the vasculature and the ureter are rare. We describe a communication between the ureter and the sac of an aortic aneurysm following abdominal aortic aneurysm repair.

    Title Female Urethral Strictures: Successful Management with Long-term Clean Intermittent Catheterization After Urethral Dilatation.
    Date July 2006
    Journal Bju International

    OBJECTIVE: To report our experience in the diagnosis and treatment of urethral stricture in women. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A retrospective review of records and video-urodynamics identified women treated for urethral stricture between 1999 and 2004 at one institution by one surgeon. Urethral stricture was defined as a fixed anatomical narrowing between the bladder neck and distal urethra of <14 F preventing catheterization, and the diagnosis was confirmed by cysto-urethroscopy, and/or video-urodynamics. Women with a history of external beam radiotherapy to the pelvis, or of gynaecological, urethral or bladder malignancy, were excluded, and the women had a urethral biopsy to exclude a malignant cause of the stricture. Initial treatment consisted of urethral dilatation to > or = 30 F. After a period of indwelling catheterization, the women were placed on clean intermittent self-catheterization (CISC) at least once daily, and monitored every 3-6 months. At each follow-up, the urethra was catheterized to exclude recurrence. American Urological Association (AUA) symptom scores were obtained at presentation and at the initial 3 month follow-up. RESULTS: Seven women met the criteria for urethral stricture, and were followed for a mean (range) of 21 (6-34) months. All were initially maintained on daily CISC, and some were gradually reduced to weekly CISC for the duration of follow-up. No patient had a recurrent stricture while on CISC, and none has had a urethral reconstruction to manage their condition. AUA symptom scores improved in all of the women by a mean of 10.7 points. No complications related to catheterization were noted. CONCLUSION: Urethral stricture is rare in women. Long-term CISC in these women is safe and effective, and can avoid the need for major reconstructive surgery.

    Title Risperidone-induced Priapism.
    Date October 2002
    Journal Scandinavian Journal of Urology and Nephrology

    Priapism is well documented as a potential side effect of psychotropic medications. To date, there have been no reports of risperidone-induced priapism in the urologic literature. We report a case of risperidone-induced priapism requiring surgical treatment.

    Title Management of Penetrating Scrotal Injury.
    Date July 2002
    Journal Pediatric Emergency Care
    Title Metastatic Renal Cell Carcinoma Presenting As an Oral Tumor.
    Date December 2001
    Journal The Canadian Journal of Urology

    Metastatic cancer presenting as an oral lesion is exceedingly uncommon. To the best of our knowledge this is the first reported instance of renal cell carcinoma presenting initially as an oral lesion.

    Title Use of Cyanoacrylate Tissue Adhesive Under a Diaper.
    Date June 2001
    Journal Bju International

    OBJECTIVE: To examine the utility of cyanoacrylate tissue adhesive (Dermabond, Ethicon, Somerville, NJ, USA; an effective means of epithelial skin closure) under a diaper (i.e. constantly exposed to bodily fluids) in 25 children (not toilet-trained) undergoing inguinal surgery. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A retrospective review of charts between July 1998 and July 2000 was used to identify children who were not toilet-trained and who had undergone inguinal surgery (e.g. orchidopexy, hernia and hydrocele repair). In addition to the type of surgery, the method of closure was also assessed; in all cases reported the subcutaneous tissues were approximated with 4/0 polyglactin suture. From July 1998 to October 1999 all epithelial skin was closed with 5/0 poliglecaprone, benzoin, sterile strips and collodion; from October 1999 to July 2000 all skin was closed with cyanoacrylate tissue adhesive. RESULTS: The chart review identified 45 boys (mean age 15.3 months, range 1-26) of whom 26 (57%) had undergone either inguinal hernia or hydrocele repair, and 19 (42%) who had undergone orchidopexy. These procedures resulted in a total of 52 incisions in the 45 children. Of the 52 incisions, 27 were closed with suture and 25 with cyanoacrylate adhesive. All patients were followed up at 2 weeks; there were no instances of infection or wound dehiscence in either group. The incisions were cosmetically identical at 3 months of follow-up. CONCLUSION: Cyanoacrylate adhesive is a safe and effective method of skin closure that can be used under a diaper.

    Title High-flow Priapism: a Novel Way of Lateralizing the Lesion in Radiologically Inapparent Cases.
    Date May 2001
    Journal Urology

    High-flow priapism is a rare entity, which is typically diagnosed with the help of either color flow Doppler ultrasound or arteriogram. In the case presented, both of these diagnostic modalities were unsuccessful in uncovering a vascular lesion. The patient underwent an empiric selective embolization of the left pudendal artery followed by a repeat angiogram of the right because of persistent tumescence. This procedure uncovered a previously unseen arteriolacunar fistula, which was treated successfully with a second selective embolization.
