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.

"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 58 th 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 2017tab. 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
