INTRODUCTION: The aim of this review was to identify trends and developments in basic research, epidemiology, diagnosis, conservative and surgical management of urinary stone disease, and to demonstrate the evolution of urolithiasis management in the new millennium. EVIDENCE ACQUISITION: We performed a literature search on Medline according to the...

Evidence acquisition: We performed a literature search on Medline according to the Preferred Reporting Items...
Article
Despite lack of a well-delineated definition, chronic ureteral obstruction (CUO) imposes significant quality of life loss, increased pathologic morbidity and risk of mortality as well as substantial economic burden. Ureteral stenting serves as an important therapeutic option to alleviate the obstruction. We thus assessed the recently-published lite...
Article
Entonox(®) (50% nitrous oxide and 50% oxygen; BOC Healthcare, Manchester, UK) is an analgesic and anxiolytic agent that is used to successfully reduce pain and anxiety during dental, paediatric and emergency department procedures. In this article we review the application and efficacy of Entonox(®) in painful local anaesthesia urological procedures...
Article
Hypertension arising from retained native kidneys can compromise both the patient and graft survival. Bilateral nephrectomy should be considered in a select group of patients, whom have refractory hypertension, prior to renal transplantation. Between January 1991 and July 1998 we performed 10 bilateral nephrectomies where hypertension was the indic...

The use of minimally invasive ablative therapies in localised prostate cancer offer potential for a middle ground between active surveillance and radical therapy. An analysis of men with organ-confined prostate cancer treated with transrectal whole-gland HIFU (Sonablate 500) between 1 February 2005 and 15 May 2007 was carried out in two centres. Ou...
Article
Seven percent of patent processus vaginalis (PPVs) are obliterated at exploration. This potentially increases the risk of cord injury with a subsequent increased risk of testicular atrophy or reduced fertility. We report a modification of a technique to improve identification of the PPV and thus potentially minimise the risk to the cord. Fifteen co...
Article
Chronic scrotal pain (>or=3 months) is multi-factorial in nature and difficult to treat. Epididymectomy for chronic epididymal pain is rarely performed because of perceived poor outcome. We retrospectively audited our results, when published 'cure' following testicular denervation is 97%. The records of 32 males (35 consecutive epididymectomies) we...
Article
Flexible cystoscopy in men younger than 55 years is painful despite the current best standard anesthesia (20 ml 2% lidocaine gel 15 minutes before endoscopy). The anesthetic value of lidocaine gel is debated and led us to seek an alternative. Nitrous oxide is a well established analgesic and anxiolytic agent, and it significantly reduces pain assoc...

All letters will be reviewed and, if approved,appear on the website. A selection of these will be edited and publishe in the Journal.Letters must be no more than 250 word...
Article
To propose a standard for the conduct of visually directed transrectal high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) and to offer a formal description of the changes observed on B-mode ultrasonography (US) during this procedure. We describe our early experience of using two different treatment methods; algorithm-based HIFU and visually directed HIFU for...
Article
Perhaps the single most significant unifying feature in men diagnosed with organ confined prostate cancer is the hope of erectile preservation in the treatment that offers cure. Although it is not 100% certain that the preservation of neurovascular bundle (NVB) can actually lead to intact sexual function, there is evidence that non-sparing nerve ra...

As part of the consent process, it is part of a doctor's duty of care to reveal any material risk. Depending upon the level of supervision, whether the operating surgeon is a trainee may be such a risk, but in our experience this is not routinely discussed with patients pre-operatively. We set out to discover patients' attitudes to being operated o...
Article
We evaluated the use of the ultrasonically activated (harmonic) scalpel (HS) in the performance of laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC). A total of 282 consecutive patients, 64 of whom had acute cholecystitis at the time of surgery, underwent LC using HS dissection. Indications for surgery included chronic pain (180 cases), episodes of acute cholecyst...
Article
In December of 1995 a system of trauma care based on Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS) principles was instituted to assess the impact of such principles on trauma care in a rural general hospital setting. This audit reviews the results over a 2 yr period to December 1997. All patients admitted with major trauma (i.e. with life threatening or pote...
Article
Postoperative shoulder-tip pain (STP) frequently occurs following laparoscopic surgery. In an attempt to abrogate this complication we prospectively evaluated the efficacy of intraoperative irrigation of the diaphragm with bupivacaine. One hundred and five consecutive patients undergoing laparoscopic surgery were prospectively randomized to treatme...
