Prognostic and Diagnostic Implications of Histological Differentiation in Invasive Urothelial Cell Carcinoma of the Bladder: Variant or Nonclassic Differentiation Number
Wojciech Jóźwicki, Zdzisław Skok, Anna Brożyna, Jerzy Siekiera, Zbigniew Wolski, Jan Domaniewski
Tumor histological organization is of prognostic importance. We evaluated the prognostic value of tumor uniformity (classic, or mixed = classic plus one nonclassic type of differentiation as histological variant) and nonclassic differentiation number greater than 1 (NDN>1) in invasive urothelial cell carcinoma of the bladder.

Single incision laparoscopic surgery in children - a preliminary report.
Wiesław Urbanowicz, Janusz Sulisławski, Michał Wolnicki
The technique of pediatric Single Incision Laparoscopic Surgery (SILS) using a single multi-channel port started in 2008 [1]. The objective of the technique are minimizing abdominal scarring, reduction of postoperative pain and risk of wound healing complications. Objective of the report is to present preliminary experience in SILS in treatment of varicocele and abdominal cryptorchism. SILS procedures were performed in eight patients. Five due to left-side varicocele and three underwent orchiectomies for testicular dysplasia

Rafał Walczak, Janusz Walczak, Krzysztof Bar
Treatment of proximal ureteral calculi frequently requires several sessions. Used techniques depend on urologist's preferences, experience, and availability of equipment. Authors present the results of laparoscopic ureterolithotomy, based on a 5-year experience.

Dietary flavones enhance the effect of tumor necrosis factor-related apoptosis-inducing ligand (TRAIL) on bladder cancer cells
Ewelina Szliszka, Jan Gebka, Joanna Bronikowska, Wojciech Krol
Flavonoids naturally occurring in fruit and vegetables demonstrate cancer chemopreventive properties. Flavones, a subclass of flavonoids, induce growth inhibition and apoptosis in bladder cancer cells. TRAIL plays an important role in immune surveillance and the defense mechanism against tumor cells. However, not all tumor cells are sensitive to TRAIL. TRAIL-resistant cancer cells can be sensitized to TRAIL-induced apoptosis by anticancer agents.. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Spontaneous Intraperitoneal Rupture of Bladder in adult female
Kanchan Gupta, Bhawna Dev, Harsha C. Chadga
Rupture of the urinary bladder without the evidence of trauma is very rare . Although a life threatening condition requiring emergency treatment, the medical aid is delayed due to lack of the diagnosis. Usually it is diagnosed intraoperatively or retrospectively . We report a case of 31 year old female with spontaneous rupture of the bladder due to bladder diverticulum , where diagnosis was made preoperatively using clinical assessment ,USG and CT cystography leading to a favorable outcome .

Linitis Plastica type of primary Signet ring cell adenocarcinoma of urinary bladder
Yajvender Pratap Singh Rana, Dharamveer Singh, Sanjay Kumar Gupta, Aditya Pradhan, Raghav Talwar, Reena Bhardwaj, Uday Miglani, Shalabh Agarwal, Mahesh Chandra, Sandeep Harkar, Yogesh Kumar Swami, Shafi Wani
Adenocarcinoma of urinary bladder is unusual, constituting about 2% of all primary carcinoma of the bladder. Bladder adenocarcinoma consisting chiefly of Signet Ring cells with linitis plastica pattern of infiltration is extremely rare. Not many cases have been reported in literature. To best of our knowledge less than 100 cases of signet ring cell adenocarcinoma urinary bladder have been reported and that of Linitis plastica are even less. We hereby report an unusual case and provide a relevant review of literature.

Esophageal metastasis of kidney cancer. A challenging diagnostic problem
Krzysztof Tupikowski, Michał Wróbel, Janusz Dembowski, Jarosław Wierzbicki, Agnieszka Halon, Irena Batycka-Ugorska, Tomasz Szydełko, Romuald Zdrojowy
Kidney cancer is known for its potential to produce metastases to virtually all organs. We present a 5-year-old male patient who suffered from esophageal metastasis during initially successful sunitinib treatment. The lesion manifested initially as a sliding esophageal hiatal hernia. The challenging diagnosis with limited radiological investigations and treatment are described.


"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 58th 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:

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 2017 tab. 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
