Introduction: To determine whether quantifying the proximity of positive prostate biopsy cores to the capsular edge may aid in identifying patients at risk for extracapsular extension (ECE) at the time of radical prostatectomy (RP). Materials and methods: We reviewed a single-surgeon experience of 429 systematic transrectal prostate biopsies fro...
Objective: To report the largest comparative analysis of robotic versus open simple prostatectomy for large volume prostate glands. Materials and methods: We retrospectively reviewed 103 patients that underwent open and 64 patients that underwent robotic simple prostatectomy from 2012-2016 at a single institution. A propensity score matched anal...
Background: We sought to determine whether formalin disinfection of prostate biopsy needles between cores reduces post-biopsy urinary tract infections (UTIs). Methods: We reviewed a single-surgeon experience of transrectal prostate biopsies from 2010 to 2014. Biopsies were performed in either an operative suite, where 10% formalin was used to di...
Objectives: To analyze a series of clinical risk factors associated with pretreatment urethral atrophy. Methods: We retrospectively reviewed 301 patients that underwent AUS placement between September 2009 and November 2015; of these, 60 (19.9%) transcorporal cuff patients were excluded. Patients were stratified into two groups based on intraope...
A rise in antimicrobial resistant uropathogens has generated a global increase in infections following transrectal ultrasound-guided prostate biopsy (TRUS-Bx). We performed a systematic search of Ovid MEDLINE® and PubMed to comprehensively review strategies to mitigate infections. Of 1664 articles retrieved, 62 were included. The data suggest that...
