Toric, presbyopia-correcting IOLs good options for glaucoma patients
Steven Vold, MD, reports that toric IOLs provide an accurate, safe, and convenient way to correct astigmatism and uncorrected distance vision for glaucoma patients, while patients wanting presbyopic correction have IOL options to fit a range of visual needs.
Novel accommodating IOL achieves unique level of accommodative change
Novel accommodating IOL achieves unique level of accommodative change
A prototype of a novel dual-mode, accommodating-disaccommodating intraocular lens with zonular capture haptics has been fabricated successfully. The lens has shown in bench studies to exhibit axial shift and shape change that results in up to about 26 D of accommodative change,
Unplanned encounters common after ureteroscopy
Findings of a retrospective study confirm that unplanned encounters are common after ureteroscopy.
BMI predicts post-RP metastasis, prostate cancer mortality
Body mass index is an independent predictor of metastasis and prostate cancer mortality after radical prostatectomy, according to results from a large, long-term single-institution study.
Ureteroscopy stone-free rates ‘disappointingly low’
A study analyzing stone-free rates after ureteroscopy suggests that urologists might consider applying refined patient selection criteria in order to achieve better outcomes.
Femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery: How far have we come?
During the XXXV Congress of the ESCRS, an international panel of expert FLACS users gathered to share their research and insights, and to learn from the experiences of their colleagues.
Genetic testing for prostate Ca: What the experts say
A recently published statement provides an evidence-based, consensus-driven framework on the role of genetic testing for determining prostate cancer risk, screening, and management.
Bipolar TURP associated with ‘substantial’ cost savings
Bipolar transurethral resection of the prostate offers an economic benefit compared with monopolar TURP that follows from the clinical differences between the two procedures, concluded investigators who presented their findings at the 2017 Western Section of the AUA annual meeting in Vancouver, BC.
Urethroplasty delay results in more complex repair
Delay to urethroplasty for bulbar urethral strictures is associated with repetitive interventions, stricture lengthening, and more complex repairs that have a greater risk for failure, while scheduling-related delay to reconstruction exposes men to risk for stricture-related complications, according to separate studies presented at the AUA annual meeting in Boston.
PFUI treatment has benefits despite low initial success
Early endoscopic realignment of pelvic fracture urethral injuries is associated with a low initial success rate, but the procedure does not hinder the success of subsequent urethroplasty and has other merits that may make it worthwhile, according to urologists from the University of Washington, Seattle.
