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.


Scientific integrity also concerns editors and publishers

Recently, there have been many dishonest propositions from scientific publishing houses and publishers. Authors receive offers to publish articles in journals of questionable reputability and often an unfairly created image which portrays a resemblance of a journal with high standards possessing an Impact Factor, generated by Clarivate Analytics (previously Thomson Reuters).

Many trademarks imitating the "original" Impact Factor have appeared. These trademarks entice authors to publish articles in journals which do not appear in the Science Citation Index Expanded database, managed by Clarivate Analytics. These journals of course have their own unique impact factors, but they are not indexed by Clarivate Analytics. Authors publish their articles in these journals only to later find out that they will not be indexed in the Science Citation Index Expanded database. Often, these articles cannot be then withdrawn because after an article is assigned a DOI number, it cannot be published in another journal as this would be considered plagiarism. Subsequently, these journals may demand up to a few thousand dollars from authors in order to withdraw their articles.

Why am I writing about this? I am writing about this because I think that editors and publishers must be honest and present credible offers to authors. In my opinion, impact factors that are not the result of parameters calculated by Clarivate Analytics should not be used, even if they are trademarks. In scientific research, the concept of an "Impact Factor" has existed for too long for it to be used by other institutions, even if it is calculated fairly and called an "unofficial impact factor". This is simply a case of scientific integrity.

The SCOPUS database has come up with a very good solution to this problem by naming their impact factor "CiteScore". This is a fair approach to authors by publishers.

As editors and publishers, we must also have an honest approach to scientific research.

Dear authors, please look out for journals which advertise various new impact factors. Before you submit your articles to a journal, make sure to check first in which database it is indexed.

With kind regards,
Tomasz Drewa

The Editorial Office would like to inform all interested parties that in Central European Journal of Urology an article entitled "Efficacy of holmium laser urethrotomy and intralesional injection of Santosh PGI tetra-inject (Triamcinolone, Mitomycin C, Hyaluronidase and N-acetyl cysteine) on the outcome of urethral strictures" [Kumar S, Kishore L, Sharma AP, Garg N, Singh SK. Cent European J Urol. 2015; 68: 462-465] was published which is very similar to the article entitled "Efficacy of Optical Internal Urethrotomy and Intralesional Injection of Vatsala-Santosh PGI Tri-Inject (Triamcinolone, Mitomycin C, and Hyaluronidase) in the Treatment of Anterior Urethral Stricture" published in Advances in Urology [Kumar S, Garg N, Singh SK, Mandal AK. Adv Urol. 2014; 2014: 192710. doi: 10.1155/2014/192710. Epub 2014 Oct 1].

The authors of these articles did not inform the CEJU Editorial Office about the prior publication of an article with a similar subject matter nor did they refer to it in their References section.

The Editorial Office regrets the existing situation.
