Laparoscopic nephrectomy and partial nephrectomy: intraperitoneal, retroperitoneal, single site.
The indication for use of laparoscopy, in the pediatric population, was initially for diagnostic purposes. As confidence with the technology and utility grew, it began to be applied for therapeutic indications. With equivalent surgical outcomes and decreased morbidity, the usefulness of a laparoscop...
The robotic-assisted ureteral reimplantation: the evolution to a new standard.
The development of the robotic-assisted laparoscopic ureteral reimplantation has tracked a path searching for the optimal method of providing outcomes on par with the gold standard of open intravesical ureteral reimplantation combined with fewer complications and decreased discomfort for the patient...
Pressure flow studies in men and women.
There are well established pressure flow criteria and nomograms for urinary obstruction in men. The pressure flow criteria for female urinary obstruction are not well established due to differences in female voiding dynamics as compared to men. Typically, other information such as radiographic data...
Office-based stone management.
As hospital resources are becoming strained, ambulatory surgical centers and day hospitals are being increasingly utilized. For the urologist, a working knowledge of local anesthetics and conscious sedation protocols are important, as many surgical kidney-stone procedures can be performed without ge...

Advanced clinical states in prostate cancer.
The classification of clinical disease states within advanced prostate cancer is set apart from other solid tumors largely through measurement of prostate-specific antigen in the blood. This testing has allowed the distinction between the castration-sensitive and the castration-resistant states, to...
Robotic/laparoscopic prolapse repair: role of hysteropexy: a urogynecology perspective.
This article addresses uterine preservation at the time of pelvic floor repair. Currently available data on the effectiveness of pelvic organ prolapse repairs is based on studies in which women underwent hysterectomy at the time of pelvic floor repair, and cannot be extrapolated to hysteropexy. Seve...
The influence of surgical approach to the renal mass on renal function.
The National Kidney Foundation estimates that 26 million Americans are living with chronic kidney disease (CKD). The high prevalence of obesity, heart disease, hypertension, and diabetes places millions more at risk for developing CKD. Although long-term sufficient renal function is routine in scree...
