Can the evolution of male contraception lead to a revolution? Review of the current state of knowledge
Mikołaj Frankiewicz, Wojciech Połom, Marcin Matuszewski
Great advances in medical research concerning methods of contraception have been achieved in recent years, however still more than 25% of couples worldwide rely on condoms- a method with poor efficacy. Despite the fact that there is a spectrum of 11 different contraceptive methods for women, there are only 4 commonly used by men (condoms, periodic abstinence, withdrawal and vasectomy). In this review, advances and present state-of-the-art both hormonal and non-hormonal male contraceptive methods will be presented and evaluated

Patient experience after transperineal template prostate biopsy compared to prior transrectal ultrasound guided prostate biopsy
Nikita R. Bhatt, Kieran Breen, Usman M. Haroon, Muhammad Akram, Hugh D. Flood, Subhasis K. Giri
Transperineal template prostate biopsy (TTPB) is reported to have higher cancer detection and lower complication rate compared to transrectal ultrasound guided prostate biopsy (TRUSPB). However there is no report of the same patient's experience with both types of biopsy.
Aim: To compare the patient reported experience in the same cohort of patients who underwent both TRUSPB and TTPB, using validated questionnaires.

Bosniak category III renal lesions: likelihood of malignancy based on computed tomography findings
Neringa Bielskienė, Vytautas Augustinavičius, Dileta Valanciene, Algirdas Edvardas Tamošiūnas, Feliksas Jankevicius
Bosniak introduced a classification of renal cysts based on imaging characteristics. Cystic renal changes are categorised determining their risk of malignancy and further management. However, defining the malignancy of category III lesions still remains a challenge and our aim was to evaluate features of malignancy in computed tomography in this category.

Ten years of intraoperative floppy iris syndrome (IFIS) in the era of α-blockers
Andreas LUNACEK, Christian Radmayr, Maria Weber, Wolfgang Horninger, Oliver Findl, Eugen Plas, Badereddin Mohamad Al-Ali
The use of alpha-1 receptor antagonists in the treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) has created a problem in ophthalmic surgery, the so-called intraoperative floppy iris syndrome (IFIS). This consists of a billowing iris, insufficient pupillary dilation with progressive intraoperative miosis, and protrusion of iris tissue through the tunnel and side port incision that are made for access to the anterior chamber during surgery. IFIS presents particular difficulties in cataract surgery which is carried out through the pupil with manipulations in the immediate vicinity of the iris

Dear Friends,

I would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 2018! I hope that this holiday season will bring you time to relax and reflect upon the past year.

The medical profession brings many possibilites for new ventures and in a certain way predisposes us to this.

We as doctors have many important roles to fulfill, usually simultaneously, such as those of: therapists, operators, scientists, managers, lecturers, publishers, editors, authors, and association members. The number of our endeavours is undoubtedly larger and continues to impress me.

Please forgive me for a short personal digression. Once, I met the children of a prominent surgeon and scientist, who was committed to his patients and whose achievements I had read about in journals. I asked them what kind of a person he was on a daily basis and what did he pass on to them, the next generation? "Dad? He went to work early in the morning, came home late at night, and on Sundays he needed his rest. We barely knew him".

Therefore, I would like to wish you all of the best and that during this holiday season you are able to spend quality time with your families and those closest to you. In time, everything will pass; our successors and new methods and techniques will arrive. Grateful patients will soon forget, and only we will remain, in the memories of our loved ones.


Kindest regards,
Tomasz Drewa
