Minimally invasive partial cystectomy with bilateral vesico-ureteric junction resection and reimplantation for a large paraganglioma involving urinary bladder trigone
Abinaya Ravichandran-chandra, Vinodh-Kumar-Adithyaa Arthanareeswaran, Hoang-Minh Do, Anja Dietel, Toni Franz, Iason Kyriazis, Evangelos Liatsikos, Joerg Rassler, Lars-Christian Horn, Jens-Uwe Stolzenburg
Paragangliomas are neuroendocrine tumours of extra adrenal origin. Although it occurs rarely in the genitourinary system, urinary bladder is the most common site. Its diagnosis warrants complete surgical excision with lymphadenectomy in case of metastatic disease. The functional status of this tumour makes intraoperative handling challenging. Surgical resection necessitates minimal manipulation of tumour thereby mitigating intraoperative physiological jeopardy. We report the possibility of minimally invasive partial cystectomy with bilateral vesico-ureteric junction resection and re-implantation for non-malignant paraganglioma involving the bladder trigone

Comparative study of a new technique using nephroscope and resectoscope sheath and the percutaneous cystolithotripsy for the treatment of bladder calculus
Rupesh Gupta, Sweta Gupta, Ranjit Kumar Das, supriya Basu, Vishnu Agrawal
Several minimally invasive approaches are available for the treatment of bladder stones, with each having its own advantages and disadvantages. We devised a new technique to overcome few limitations of conventional techniques and compared its efficacy with conventional percutaneous cystolithotripsy (PCCL) technique.

Perigraft fluid collections after kidney transplantation: Does the type of donor (uncontrolled donation after circulatory death vs. donation after brain death) have a role?
Felix Guerrero-Ramos, Teresa Cavero-Escribano, Alfredo Rodríguez-Antolín, Amado Andrés-Belmonte, Juan Passas-Martínez, Ángel Tejido-Sánchez
Perigraft fluid collection (PFC) is a common complication after kidney transplant. Its etiology is not clear and not all the causes have been identified. The influence of the type of donor has never been evaluated. Our aim was to compare incidence, severity and management of PFC in recipients of grafts from uncontrolled donors after circulatory death (DCD) with normothermic extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (NECMO) versus recipients of grafts from donors after brain death (DBD).

Anderson-Hynes pyeloplasty in children – long-term outcomes, how long follow up is necessary?
Marcin Polok, Wojciech Apoznański
Pyeloplasty is commonly conducted in children with UPJO. Standard post-operational procedure involves only a short time after the surgery. What is the real number of complications, including the long-term ones? What is the function of the operated kidney?
Aim. The assessment of the effectiveness of the pyeloplasty. The assessment of the suitability of conducting the long-term control after pyeloplasty.

"Central European Journal of Urology" is growing

Dear Friends, Colleagues,
Readers and Editors,

The importance of the "Central European Journal of Urology" is steadily increasing. This is of course,in a large part thanks to you. According to the SCOPUS database ranking of 98 urological journals published and indexed worldwide, our journal is ranked at the 58 th position. This is a very acceptable rank! First place is of course reserved by the "European Urology", but journals ranked near us show that our position is meaningful and the influence of the articles published in our journal is noticeable among the newest trending urological topics. This interesting SCOPUS ranking can be viewed on the following site: https://www.scopus.com/sourceid/19900192570?origin= sbrowse#tabs=1.

Independent of the Web of Science database, the citation index CiteScore prepared by SCOPUS, also contains positive news concerning our journal. In 2016, the CiteScore for the "Central European Journal of Urology" was 0.70. This index rating is calculated based on the amount of citations of articles published in a given journal during the last three years. By following the change in the citation index of the "Central European Journal of Urology", it can be easily seen that the importance of our journal is on the rise. The CiteScore in 2013 was 0.23, and increased to 0.37 and 0.62 in 2014 and 2015, respectively. What is the difference between the CiteScore (SCOPUS) from the Impact Factor (Web of Science)?

Both factors are derived from the amount of citations per published articles. It seems though that the CiteScore is more flexible. It is calculated more often (monthly), not yearly, as is the case for the Impact Factor. The method of calculation and assignment of the CiteScore is clear and available at all times to SCOPUS database users. Please follow how the CiteScore changes this year for the "Central European Journal of Urology"'. This information can be accessed by clicking on the CiteScoreTracker 2017tab. It is now that straight-forward!

By observing the changes occurring in international bibliographic databases, I think that thanks to these tools the SCOPUS database will soon become a very relevant player among the ranking systems and the CiteScore index will be of equal value to that developed by the Web of Science database. Perhaps overtime it will gain even more popularity?


Kindest regards,
Tomasz Drewa
