Short Communication: Testicular Size Discrepancy in a Man Evaluated for Vasectomy

Nirmish Singla*, Lakshmi Priya Kunju, Julie Marie Jorns

A 49-year-old asymptomatic man presents for a vasectomy evaluation. His past medical history is noncontributory, and his family history is remarkable for prostate cancer in his father. On genitourinary examination, his left testicle is notably larger than his right testicle, with concern for a firm, nontender upper pole mass palpated on the left side. Scrotal ultrasound is performed and reveals numerous hypoechoic masses within the left testicle (Figure 1) and a normal right testicle. He undergoes left radical orchiectomy, revealing the histologic patterns shown (Figure 2).

Editorial: Enhanced Recovery after Surgery (ERAS) Protocols after Radical Cystectomy: Existing Barriers and Promising new Developments

Evie Mertens* and Homayoun Zargar

By utilizing evidence based practice enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) protocols implement several steps along the care pathway to help minimise the surgical stress response caused from surgical insult. Radical Cystectomy is associated with the highest morbidity of all urological procedures [1]; with extended length of hospital stay and high complication rates reported post operatively [1-2].

Editorial: Urine Derived Stem Cells as a Novel Cell Source for Urethral Tissue Regeneration

Jiaqiang Chu, Wenjun Ma, Mengjia Gong, Deying Zhang, Gen Xiong, Dawei He, Guanghui Wei* and Yuanyuan Zhang*

As a tubularized organ in the distal portion of the urinary tract, the urethra can often develop strictures due to congenital defects (e.g. hypospadias), injury, and infections. In particular, urethral stricture is a common urological problem in men. Urethral strictures thus present a significant economic impact and burden, because they are relatively frequent and repeated surgical intervention is often needed. The main causes of urethral stricture are trauma to the urethra, gonorrheal infection and idiopathic inflammatory diseases.

Editorial: A Reflection on Social Media Usage in Healthcare and Urology: An Opportunity for Research

Lauren Folgosa Cooley* and Lance Hampton

Social media is a broad term that encompasses many Internet based sites through which online-users communicate and disseminate information. Social media networks, such as Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube, are redefining the concept of community as online users can now exchange ideas, messages, videos, and other forms of user-content within seconds [1]. Latest statistics from 2015 have shown that nearly 65% of US adults are using social media networking sites, which is a ten-fold increase since 2005 [2]. This trend has been far reaching over the past decade with a wide variety of ages, ethic groups, and socioeconomic classes joining in [2].
