PSA mass screening: is there enough evidence?
Bernardo Rocco, Angelica Grasso, Roman Sosnowski, Paolo Guido Dell'Orto, Giancarlo Albo, Erik Castle, Rafael Coelho, Vip Patel, Alex Mottrie
Prostate cancer plays an important role in widely understood aspects of men's health, and is becoming a growing problem in terms of public life. Prostate cancer is one of the most common neoplasm amongst men. Male patients could live with prostate cancer for a long time so it is important to offer for approprte male a adequate diagnostics tools and treatment. Prostate cancer and PSA might have the potential to be the right disease and the right indicator to perform mass screening, but regardless of that there is still active debate about it.

Stem cells for urinary tract regeneration
Anna Bajek, Tomasz Drewa, Romana Joachimiak, Andrzej Marszałek, Maciej Gagat, Alina Grzanka
Regeneration of the urinary bladder is complicated task, due to organ dimensions and diseases (cancer, interstitial cystitis) when autologous bladder cells cannot be used. Cancer is the most frequent indication for bladder removal (cystectomy). Stem cells can be used, with the guarantee of the sufficient cell number for a construction in vitro of the urinary bladder wall. Tissue engineering techniques hold great promise for regeneration of dysfunctional urinary sphincter. Denervation following surgical procedures or injures resulted in weakness of the urethral sphincter and stress urinary incontinence

Blood loss during laparoscopic radical prostatectomy - is it significant or not?
Sławomir Poletajew, Artur A. Antoniewicz
Traditionally, assessment of blood loss during laparoscopic radical prostatectomy (LRP) is based on the blood volume collected intraoperatively in the suction device bottles. While this method is not perfect, analysis of changes in blood cell count (BCC) resulting from LRP is advisable.

Normal variants in patients consulted in the Dermatology Clinic for the lesions on the male external genitalia
Igor Michajłowski, Michał Sobjanek, Jerzy Michajłowski, Adam Włodarkiewicz, Marcin Matuszewski
So far, there have been no papers analysing the incidence of 'non-pathological' lesions or normal variants on the male external genitalia. Subsequently, the number of patients consulted due to the presence of such lesions, remains unknown. The aim of the study was to estimate the incidence of normal variants in patients who were consulted due to lesions on the skin or mucosa of the male external genitalia.

Supranumerary kidney presenting as urinary leakage after an ipsilateral laparoscopic radical nephrectomy.
Marek Roslan, Marcin M. Markuszewski, Anna Kułagin, Maciej R. Markuszewski, Wojciech Połom, Kazimierz Krajka
We present a case of a patient with supranumerary kidney diagnosed after laparoscopic radical nephrectomy. Urinary leakage, an unusual complication that appeared postoperatively, led to complementary examination and making the right diagnosis. The reevaluation of the preoperative CT in enhancement phase and the new CT scan confirmed the presence of a real accessory organ connected to the main unit with a small bridge of tissue. The latter right nephrectomy was performed. Despite the scarceness of this anomaly, a thorough interpretation of images obtained during investigative procedures can provide a clue about the presence of this rare entity.

Carcinoma in the inactive bladder
Michał Kupś, Marcin Słojewski, Oleg Oszurek, Andrzej Sikorski
Etiologic factors affecting bladder tumor have been well confirmed and it is widely recognized that carcinogenic substances in urine may play an important role in a pathogenesis. Carcinoma developing in a defunctionalized bladder, although uncommon, does occur. We report a case of a transitional cell carcinoma (TCC) found in a remaining bladder of a male patient and a review of the most relevant literature.

ANASTOMOSING HEMANGIOMA WITH FATTY CHANGES OF THE GENITOURINARY TRACT: A LESION MIMMICKING ANGIOMYOLIPOMA.
Tien Anh Tran, Peter Pernicone
Anastomosing hemangioma of the genitourinary tract is a recently described vascular lesion of the kidneys and testes. Although these lesions can occur in the renal hilum with infiltration of the hilar adipose tissue, the presence of adipocytes in this type of vascular tumor has not been reported. We described a case of an anastomosing hemangioma associated with fatty changes of the stromal component in a 59 year old female patient. This unusual morphologic finding not only represents a novel curiosity in this rare type of vascular lesion, but could potentially pose significant diagnostic challenges, namely, mistaken as an angiomyolipoma.

primary paratesticular carcinoid in a 70 year old male
Rumana Makhdoomi, Humaira Bashir, Malik Muanfat, Khalil Muhammad Baba
Carcinoid tumors are neuroendocrine tumors and most frequently occur within tissues derived from the embryonic gut. These tumors can occur in any organ but are very rare in the paratesticular region. We hereby report a case of paratesticular carcinoid in a 70 year old male who, to the best of our knowledge, is the oldest patient reported so far in the world literature.

A fusional anomaly of the epididymis associated with recurrent testicular torsion
Sani Aminu, Kamran Syed, Thiru Gunendran, Graham Young
A 31 years old man with recurrent testicular torsion and infertility was found to have a fusional anomaly of the epidiymis on scrotal exploration in which only the head of epididymis was attached to the testis, while the body and tail were completely free. He had bilateral orchidopexy which relieved pain and recurrent torsion. He was then refered for fertilty treatment. Literature search has shown that infertlity is more associated with congenital anomalies of the epidiymis and not with recurrent torsions.

Incidentally detected Emphysematous Pyelonephritis: A case report
Yogesh Kumar Swami, Dharam Vir Singh, Sanjay Kumar Gupta, Aditya Pradhan, Yajvender P. S. Rana, Sandeep Harkar, M. Shafi Wani
Emphysematous Pyelonephritis (EP) is rare, severe gas forming infection of renal parenchyma and its surrounding areas and potentially life threatening condition that requires prompt evaluation and treatment. Although it commonly present with a fulminant clinical picture of sepsis, relatively mild symptoms can be encountered. To our knowledge, incidentally detected emphysematous pyelonephritis has not been reported so far. We report a case of EP which was incidentally detected during evaluation for diabetes.

"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: 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 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
