Article
Objectives: To assess the change of storage symptoms and their impact on quality of life in men undergoing Thulium: YAG laser enucleation of the prostate (ThuLEP) for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). Materials and methods: BPH patients requiring surgery were prospectively evaluated (April 2019-October 2020). Inclusion criteria: Internationa...
Article
We present a laparoscopic high anterior resection and en‐bloc partial cystectomy for a locally advanced sigmoid cancer (T4b), infiltrating the bladder dome. The case is of an 80‐year‐old man who presented with significant weight loss and rectal bleeding. Colonoscopy demonstrated a mucosal lesion at 19 cm from the anal verge. Staging found no metast...
Article
Objective: In this study, we compared postoperative outcomes of patients submitted to varicocele correction under general or local anesthesia at a single center. Methods: All patients underwent varicocele surgical treatment with the Colpi-modified Marmar subinguinal technique. They were managed with either general (Group A) or local with ileo-in...
Article
Tm:YAG laser operates at a wavelength of 1940-2013 nm in a continuous wave mode, which enables smooth incision and rapid vaporization of prostatic tissue, with a shallow penetration of only 0.2 mm. These characteristics make Tm:YAG a versatile laser, allowing the surgeon to perform resection, vaporization, and vapoenucleation. This systematic revie...

This narrative review summarizes the current knowledge about multiparametric and biparametric magnetic resonance imaging of the prostate. This is provided from both a radiological and a urological point of view analyzing the technical aspects of fusion-targeted biopsy using the transperineal approach. We report practical considerations concerning p...
Article
Objective: To evaluate the outcomes of thulium laser enucleation of the prostate (ThuLEP) in men aged ≥75 years compared to youngers. Traditional surgery has increased and significant morbidity in older men. Lasers have been introduced as an alternative approach to overcome the morbidity of traditional surgery. Material: We retrospectively evalu...

The choice of modality for renal replacement therapy in patients with ADPKD varies, often based on patient choice, physician-related factors, and resource availability. For a long time peritoneal dialysis (PD) was considered as relative contraindication due to the possible limited intraperitoneal space. In recent years, some studies suggested it is...

Objective: To provide the first large single-operator case series of patients who undergo "en bloc" thulium laser enucleation of the prostate (ThuLEP) and to demonstrate an improvement in enucleation efficacy with experience. Methods: We prospectively evaluated a cohort of patients with symptomatic benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) who underwen...
Article
Introduction: Indocyanine green (ICG) fluorescence imaging system is a now a consolidated complementary technique for several surgical fields. The development of post-transplant lymphocele following lymph spread could affect kidney function; between therapeutic options, the literature reports a 12% overall conversion rate from laparoscopic to open...
Article
OBJECTIVE: To present a reproducible step-by-step approach to en bloc thulium laser enucleation of the prostate (ThuLEP) for benign prostatic hyperplasia surgical treatment. Laser adenoma enucleation is nowadays a recognized surgical treatment for benign prostatic enlargement. Some variants to the classical 3-lobes laser technique have been propose...
Article
Urolithiasis is a rare complication after kidney transplant. Over the years, treatment of kidney stones has evolved radically, but a standard approach for transplanted kidneys has not yet been defined. Here, we present a 69-year-old male patient who received successful treatment of nephrolithiasis of the transplanted kidney. The patient, who had re...

Background: The aim of our study was to compare perioperative and functional outcomes of two different prostatic laser enucleation techniques performed in two high-volume centers: 100 W holmium laser enucleation of the prostate (HoLEP) (Lyon, France) and 110 W thulium laser enucleation of the prostate (ThuLEP) (Varese, Italy). Materials and metho...
Article
Objectives: To evaluate whether two similar en bloc thulium laser enucleation of the prostate (ThuLEP) techniques can influence surgical complications and outcomes. Material: Within two institutional databases164 men who underwent two different en bloc ThuLEP techniques were compared using propensity scores. With the first technique prostatic lo...

Objective To report a new technique for Thulium Laser Enucleation of the Prostate, that we called “En-bloc” ThuLEP. Methods A full anatomical description of the technique is provided. We assessed operative variables of a 50-patient series, treated with the new “En-bloc” ThuLEP and compared them with another series of 50 patients (that had the same...
Article
Background: Many surgical procedures can produce persistent lymphorrhea, lymphoceles, and lymphedema after lymph node and lymph vessel damage. Appropriate visualization of the lymphatic system is challenging. Indocyanine green (ICG) is a well-known nontoxic dye for lymphatic flow evaluation. ICG fluorescence-guided lymphography has emerged as a pr...
Article
Objective: To test the impact of Thulium laser enucleation of the prostate (ThuLEP) on erectile and ejaculatory functions, on lower urinary tract symptoms and on quality of life (QoL). Methods: From July 2013 to May 2015, we prospectively evaluated 177 patients with LUTS related to benign prostatic hyperplasia. All patients were assessed with th...

Background The aim of this study was to determine the learning curve for thulium laser enucleation of the prostate (ThuLEP) for two surgeons with different levels of urological endoscopic experience. Methods From June 2012 to August 2013, ThuLEP was performed on 100 patients in our institution. We present the results of a prospective evaluation du...

Purpose: To review the 10-year experience of our urological unit in the surgical management of renal cell carcinoma (RCC) with neoplastic tumor thrombosis focusing on postoperative survival. Materials and methods: We underwent a retrospective analysis of the patients treated for this pathology during the last decade 2002-2012, stratifying them b...
Article
We introduce the diagnostic complexity of a testicular metastasis by signet ring cell adenocarcinoma of unknown origin. Testicular metastases are a rare event but, particular after 50 years of age, a testicular mass could represent a metastasis.
Article
Correction to: Asian Journal of Andrology (2009) 11: 678–682. doi: 10.1038/aja.2009.43; Published online 21 September 2009. In published paper by Giovanni Saredi et al. 1, the author list in page 678 was wrong. The correct names should be: Giovanni Saredi1, Maria Chiara Sighinolfi1, Francesco Fidanza1, Stefano De Stefani1, Salvatore Micali1, Pate...

Transperineal prostate biopsy is a procedure that can be used to obtain histological samples from the prostate. To improve both the quality of the biopsy core samples and prostate cancer detection, we are currently performing a prospective, randomized trial comparing prostate biopsy samples obtained using an 18 G-needle to those obtained using a 16...
Article
Skeletal muscle metastases following cancer surgery are rare. Few cases of abdominal wall metastasis have been reported in the literature and attributed to tumor seeding after laparoscopic surgery or percutaneous nephrostomy. We report a case of abdominal tumor seeding after open nephroureterectomy managed by means of a surgical and medical approac...
Article
Scrotal liposarcoma is an uncommon disease, usually found after the fifth decade. We describe the case of a well-differentiated scrotal liposarcoma associated with a considerable inflammatory reaction, treated with surgical ablation.

Article
Primary squamous cell carcinoma of the prostate is an extremely uncommon malignancy, accounting for less than 0.2-1% of all prostatic cancers. We report one case of primary squamous cell carcinoma of the prostate. This patient presented with lower urinary tract symptoms with acute urinary retention after TURP.

Article
T1G3 superficial bladder cancer is considered to be at high risk for progression, and in some institutions early cystectomy is advocated. Other authors and personal experience suggest that conservative treatment, such as TURBT followed by intravesical prophylaxis, may be adequate in the majority of cases. The purpose of the present phase II study w...
