Anomalies of the inferior vena cava and renal veins and implications for renal surgery
Ahmed Eldefrawy, Mohan Arianayagam, Prashanth Kanagarajah, Kristell Acosta, Murugesan Manoharan
Abnormalities of the inferior vena cava (IVC) and renal veins are extremely rare. However, with the increasing use of computed tomography (CT), these anomalies are more frequently diagnosed. The majority of venous anomalies are asymptomatic and they include left sided IVC, duplicated IVC, absent IVC as well as retro aortic and circumaortic renal veins. The embryological development of the IVC is complex and involves the development and regression of three sets of paired veins. During renal surgery, undiagnosed venous anomalies may lead to major complications

Urine markers and prostate cancer
Jacek Wilkosz, Magdalena Bryś, Waldemar Różański
Prostate cancer (CaP) is the most common cancer in men globally, with an estimated prevalence of more than 2 million cases. Given the poor success rate in treating advanced CaP, intervention in early stages may reduce the progression of small localized carcinoma to a large metastatic lesion, thereby reducing disease-related deaths. Urine is readily available and can be used to detect either exfoliated cancer cells or secreted products. The major advantages of urine-based assays are their noninvasive character and ability to monitor CaP with heterogeneous foci

Education concerning carcinoma of prostate and its early detection
Sławomir Dutkiewcz, Sylwia Jędrzejowska
According to our assumption, educating men increase their awareness on the need of screening tests and results in increasing reporting to physical examinations. This in turn allows for an early detection of the disease.

Pentoxifylline effects on renal structure after urethral obstruction in rat: A stereological study
Mehdi Shirazi, Ali Noorafshan, Amir Farrokhi
Chronic renal failure due to tubulointerstitial fibrosis is one of complications of lower urinary tract obstruction. As pentoxifylline is a xanthine derivative that inhibits some inflammatory mediators we conducted this study to investigate whether pentoxifylline inhibits renal fibrosis in a rat model of partial urethral obstruction (PUO).

Semen quality in men from subfertile couples from region of Lodz according to the new references values recommended by WHO 200
Waldemar Różański, Wiesław Szymczak, Małgorzata Wójt, Sławomir Sobakiewicz, Marek Lipiński, Katarzyna Marchlewska, Małgorzata Gołąb-Lipińska, Elżbieta Oszukowska
The semen analysis is the main diagnostic tool for evaluating the male fertility potential. The standard semen analysis includes evaluation of the sperm concentration, motility and their morphology. The most important question is whether results from semen analysis may be a certain marker for male fertility.. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Laparoscopic radical nephrectomy for large renal tumour - a case report and technical considerations.
Tomasz Szydełko, Krzysztof Tupikowski, Janusz Dembowski, Tadeusz Niezgoda, Adam Wojciechowski, Romuald Zdrojowy
In comparison to an open procedure, the laparoscopic radical nephrectomy has demonstrated advantages in regard to perioperative morbidity, postoperative pain, time of hospitalization and convalescence. However, most series of laparoscopic radical nephrectomy are confined to T1 tumors. The authors present a case of a large-volume-T2 renal tumour treated laparoscopically. The aim of the study is to present the operative technique and to discuss several unique problems that arise during the laparoscopic procedure in patients with large renal masses.

HEMOPERITONEUM SECONDARY TO BLEEDING OF HEPATIC METASTASIS OF TESTICULAR CARCINOMA
Gaston Astroza, Daniella Espínola, Víctor Faundes, Juan Calderón
Testicular cancer is the most common type of cancer among young patients. At the moment of diagnosis, between 30% and 50% of them have developed metastases, which affect retroperitoneal lymph nodes and lungs especially. Hepatic compromise is rare and is associated with poor prognosis. Besides this, hepatic lesions can complicate with necrosis and overgrowth, a phenomenon that is mainly seen in primary lesions. Furthermore, bleeding of secondary lesions is very uncommon. We present a case of a patient with massive hemoperitoneum secondary to rupture of hepatic metastatic lesions of a primary testicular tumor.

SCHWANNOMA, A RARE TUMOR OF THE SEMINAL VESICLE
Andrea M. Furtado, Eduardo Carrasquinho, Marco Ferreira, Ana Afonso, Fernando Ferrito
We present a rare case of a schwannoma of the seminal vesicle that occurred in a 3-year-old male with symptoms of the lower urinary tract. Ultrasonography and magnetic resonance imaging documented a solid mass in the patient left seminal vesicle. A transvesical approach with a transtrigonal midline incision was successfully performed. The microscopic aspect was compatible with schwannoma.

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
