OVER 500 OBTURATOR NERVE BLOCKS IN THE LITHOTOMY POSITION DURING TRANSURETHRAL RESECTION OF BLADDER TUMOUR
Karolina Pladzyk, Lidia Jureczko, Tomasz Łazowski
Spinal anaesthesia for transurethral resection of bladder tumour (TURBT) does not prevent unintended stimulation of the obturator nerve, when electroresection is performed on the lateral wall of the bladder. It results in thigh adductor muscles contraction which may lead to perforation of bladder wall with resectoscope loop. The aim of the study was to assess the efficacy and safety of obturator nerve block (ONB).

We present a cohort of patients with low-stage pelviureteric neoplastic disease who underwent complete laparoscopic nephroureterectomy(CLNUE) with intravesical lockable clip(IVLC). Due to the absence of a standard technique of NUE, the study was not randomised.. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Selected examples of complications after minimal invasive treatment of urolithiasis
Waldemar Różański, Leszek Klimek, Marek Lipiński, Rafał Kliś
The last years in urology have been concentrated on the intense introducing of minimal invasive methods in the treatment of urinary tract diseases. Major progress was noted in the treatment of urolithiasis. In the treatment of urinary tract lithiasis ESWL, PCNL, URSL are widely used. The aim of the study is to present the examples of urinary tract lithiasis as the complication of minimal invasive methods used in the treatment of urolithiasis. One should remember that even minimal invasive medical procedures using the instruments retained in longterm contact with urine may be the cause of incrustation and stone formation.

Polymorphic variants of H-RAS proto-oncogene and their possible role in bladder cancer aetiology
Magdalena Traczyk, Edyta Borkowska, Marek Rożniecki, Rafał Purpurowicz, Adam Jędrzejczyk, Piotr Marks, Michał Pietrusiński, Zbigniew Jabłonowski, Marek Sosnowski, Bogdan Kałużewski
H-RAS gene is a proto-oncogene, which encodes small protein of GTPase activity. This protein is a component of many signalling cascades, while mutations in H-RAS gene are often found in urinary bladder cancer, with a consequence of continuous transmission of cancer cell growth and proliferation stimulating signals. H-RAS T81C polymorphism may contribute to the development of bladder cancer.. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

A case of metastatic prostate adenocarcinoma to inguinal lymph node
Mitsuru Komeya, Tamami Sahoda, Shinpei Sugiura, Takuto Sawada, Kazuo Kitami
A 7-year-old man presented with dysuria. The prostate-specific antigen level was 65.5 ng/mL. Retropubic radical prostatectomy and regional lymphadenectomy revealed moderately differentiated adenocarcinoma (Gleason score 3 + = 7, pT2N0). Postoperative adjuvant hormonal therapy was started immediately and continued for 12 years. Hormonal therapy was then discontinued. However, biochemical recurrence occurred 12 months after adjuvant hormonal therapy was discontinued. A computed tomography scan showed left inguinal lymphadenopathy

Pseudosarcomatous fibromyxoid tumor of the prostate revealed on suprapubic prostatectomy: a case report
Serdar Toksoz, Enis Kervancioglu, Alev Ok Atilgan
We report a rare case of inflammatory pseudotumor of the prostate revealed on suprapubic prostatectomy. A 70 years old man presented with nocturia, urgency and difficulty in voiding. The histopathologic examination of the suprapubic adenomectomy specimen reported fibromyxoid pseudosarcomatous tumor (inflammatory prostatic pseudotumor). İt is important to take this benign lesion under consideration to avoid unnecessary aggressive radical complementary treatments.

Laparoscopic radical nephrectomy in morbidly obese patients - presentation of two cases and technical considerations.
Bartosz Małkiewicz, Tomasz Szydełko, Janusz Dembowski, Krzysztof Tupikowski, Romuald Zdrojowy
Laparoscopic radical nephrectomy has been accepted as the preferred management of low stage renal masses. Endoscopic management is advantageous to decrease perioperative and postoperative complications. In the mid-1990s, morbid obesity was considered a relative contraindication to laparoscopic technique. The authors present two cases of laparoscopic radical nephrectomy due to renal tumors in extremely obese patients. The aim of this study is not only to present the operative technique but also to show that the laparoscopic procedure is safe and effective in morbidly obese patients.

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.
