The Department of Urology at the Sestre milosrdnice University Hospital Center is the oldest urological institution in the Republic of Croatia and this part of Europe. Today, the Department is a modern tertiary healthcare institution, where the most complex methods of urological practice are performed using modern medical devices and highly sophist...

The history of Croatian urology clearly shows its affiliation to the medical and civilizational circle of the Western world. The Department of Urology at the Sestre milosrdnice University Hospital Center is the oldest urology institution in the Republic of Croatia. The Department was established in 1894, when the new Sestre milosrdnice Hospital was...

One of the main reasons for the introduction of a new grading system was Gleason sum 7, which differed significantly in the prognosis of the disease depending on the primary Gleason. The aim of this study was to compare grade group 2 and grade group 3, and the impact of cancer percentages in final pathology reports after radical prostatectomy on th...

Stress urinary incontinence (SUI) continues to present a major complication after radical prostatectomy. Suburethral slings represent one of the less invasive options for postprostatectomy SUI, and a more recent addition is a transobturator sling, the AdVance®. We report our results with the AdVance® sling for the management of postoperative SUI. T...

UVOD i CILJEVI: Liječenje lokaliziranog raka prostate radikalnom prostatektomijom (RP) doživjelo je posljednjih dvadesetak godina dramatičan porast. Većina pacijenata postiže zadovoljavajuću kontinenciju unutar godine dana nakon zahvata. Unatoč napretku u kirurškoj tehnici i dalje je prisutan dio bolesnika u kojih perzistira stresna urinarna inkont...

Još do prvog predstavljanja 70-ih godina prošlog stoljeća perkutana nefrolitotripsija (PCNL) najvažnija je minimalno invazivna metoda u liječenju bubrežne litijaze. Unatoč razvoju retrogradne intrarenalne kirurgije PCNL je još uvijek najprihvatljivija metoda primarnog operativnog liječenja kompleksne (recidivne/odljevne/koraljne) litijaze. Na Klini...

INTRODUCTION & OBJECTIVES: Bellini duct carcinoma represents one of the most aggressive carcinomas in urology. High percentage of metastatic disease at time of diagnosis and very poor outcomes have been reported in several studies. Primary treatment remains, as with all kidney cancers, surgical but adjuvant therapy is needed more often than in kidn...

OBJECTIVES: Tumors arising within urinary bladder diverticula are rare. Explanation of carcinogenic transformation is based on urinary stasis within poorly contractile diverticula and chronic inflammation. Additionally, bladder diverticula neoplasms have a poorer prognosis than tumors arising within the urinary bladder lumen. Early transmural infil...

Objectives: To report a rare case of squamous cell carcinoma arising in a urinary bladder diverticulum and present recent literature overview on treatment options. Clinical Presentation and Intervention: A 56-year-old man presented with intermittent hematuria. Ultrasound examination indicated primary carcinoma in the urinary bladder diverticulum. D...
Article
Only few reports validated contemporary Epstein criteria for insignificant prostate cancer, and only one being from Europe. Patients with insignificant prostate cancer should be offered active surveillance and spared radical treatment. In our study we tested Epstein biopsy criteria for predicting unfavorable final pathology and biochemical relapse...

Operativno liječenje odljevne/koraljne litijaze izazov je za svakoga urologa praktičara. Dugotrajni morbiditet, smanjenje kvalitete života te u konačnici zatajenje bubrežne funkcije posljedice su neliječene i neadekvatno liječene bolesti. Iskustvo i tehnološki napredak (PCNL, mini PCNL, RIRS, ESWL) pokazali su da minimalno invazivni i multimodalni...

PurposeWe are often confronted with patients in the "gray zone" (prostate-specific antigen [PSA]<10 ng/mL) whose biopsies reveal no malignancy but only inflammation. We investigated the relationship between histological inflammation and total PSA (tPSA), free PSA (fPSA), and percentage of free PSA (f/tPSA) levels in patients without prostate cancer...

SUMMARY – Fifty years ago, Robson introduced radical nephrectomy (RN) setting the gold standard for treating kidney tumors. Experience has shown that partial nephrectomy (PN) can be equally effective with the advantages of preserving kidney function and avoiding unnecessary nephrectomies for benign tumors. The purpose of this report is to demonstra...

The aim is to report a rare case of squamous cell carcinoma arising in a urinary bladder diverticulum and present recent literature overview of treatment options. A 56-year-old man presented with intermittent hematuria. Ultrasound examination indicated primary carcinoma in the urinary bladder diverticulum. Diagnosis was confirmed with cystoscopy an...

INTRODUCTION & OBJECTIVES: Testicular lymphoma may be a manifestation of primary extranodal disease, the first manifestation of clinically hidden nodal disease or a later manifestation of disseminated nodal lymphoma. Of all testicular tumors, the primary testicular non-Hodgkin lymphoma makes up 5% of testicular tumors and 1-2% of all non Hodgkin’s...

Foreign bodies inside the urinary tract are a relatively rare condition in our practice. There are several reports published and in most cases the reason for self insertion of an object is autoerotic stimulation or psychiatric illness. Self treatment by homemade instruments is a rarely seen scenario. A 62 year old man reported to our clinic complai...

Liječenje lokaliziranog raka prostate radikalnom prostatektomijom doživjelo je posljednjih dvadesetak godina dramatičan porast. Unatoč napretku u kirurškoj tehnici i smanjenju ranih i kasnih postoperativnih komplikacija i dalje je prisutan dio bolesnika u kojih perzistira stresna inkontinencija urina.

There is a well-documented relationship between urinary bladder diverticula and intradiverticular neoplasms. The great majorities of these tumors are urothelial carcinomas, but may also be of glandular or squamous type. Sarcomas occurring within bladder diverticula are exceptionally rare and highly malignant lesions, with only 20 well documented ca...

A 65-year-old man was referred to our department with clinical signs of septic shock and necrotizing soft tissue infection of the scrotal, perianal and right inguinal region. Initial presentation was a typical Fournier's gangrene. Because of the life-threatening condition, the initial treatment was extensive removal of necrotic tissue. Antibiotic t...

Adrenal myelolipoma is a rare benign tumor composed of mature adipose cells and hematopoietic elements. Their mostly small size (<5 cm), unilateral site, and clinical quiescence are accountable for predominantly incidental disclosure. We report a case of a 54-year-old man complaining of gradually aggravating pain in the right hemiabdomen in whom ab...

Introduction & Objectives: In recent publications there is emerging evidence that inflammation may contribute to prostatic carcinogenesis. It is hypothesised that oxydative stress triggers the appearance of proliferative inflammatory atrophy (PIA) lesions which can degenerate into carcinoma. The aim of the study was to assess the risk of detecting...
Article
Introduction & objectives: The aim of the study was to determine whether the total percentage of carcinoma in needle core biopsy and localization of carcinoma in the prostate could be used as reliable predictors of biochemical relapse (BCR) in patients treated with radical prostatectomy.

A 69-year-old man was admitted for resection of rectal adenocarcinoma diagnosed by colonoscopy. Preoperative computed tomography scan and abdominal ultrasonography revealed bilateral renal tumors measuring up to 2 and 2.8 cm in largest diameter, respectively. The patient underwent partial colectomy and bilateral partial nephrectomy. Microscopically...

Introductions and objectives: On transrectal ultrasound (TRUS), prostate cancers are visualized as hypoechoic or isoechoic lesions. Hyperechoic lesions are usually considered as benign, whether benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH), prostatitis or prostate infarction. On TRUS, prostate cancer is visualized as a hypoechoic lesion in 60-70%, and as isoec...
