Samuel Goldflam (852-932) - promoter of modern neurology and his contribution to urology
Sławomir Poletajew
The name of Samuel Goldflam is universally recognised amongst physicians, having the special significance for the urologists and nephrologists. A shaking symptom of the lumbar region (Goldflam's sign), described in 1900, belongs to the basic components of a medical examination, both pertaining to urologic and internal medicine. Its key importance for the diagnostics of renal and the urinary tract diseases emphasises an outstanding contribution of the Polish researcher to the development of medicine.

beta-catenin as a prognostic factor for prostate cancer
Andrzej Nowicki, Stanisław Sporny, Joanna Duda-Szymańska
The prostate cancer is difficult to predict, and treatment failure is associated with local infiltration, as well as distant metastases. Adhesion and ability to migrate of cancer cells play a major role in formation of metastasis. The participation of β-catenin in pathogenesis of many types of cancer and benign processes has been an important discovery of recent years.

Fertility Preservation in Cases of Laparoscopic Treatment of Seminal Vesicle Cysts
Mátyás Benyó, Csaba Berczi, Tamas Jozsa, Gabor Csanadi, Attila Varga, Tibor Flaskó
Seminal vesicle cysts can cause sub- or infertility. Minimal invasive techniques have the advantage of preserving the vas deferens by the treatment of symptomatic cases. After reviewing the published articles, only a few of them presented data on fertility before and after operation. The authors report now the successful treatment of two patients with seminal vesicle cysts, when laparoscopic removal dissolved the symptoms, preserved fertility and erectile function. Due to the rarity of seminal vesicle cysts preoperative examinations and treatment modalities should focus, beside the symptoms relief, on the preservation of fertility and erectile function.

A case of a thirty year old female patient diagnosed with mucinous tubular and spindle cell carcinoma of her left kidney based on an ultrasound abdominal scan performed for unspecific pain is presented. The histopathology report revealed a classic type of MT&SCC. Photographs of histopathological samples are shown. Nephrectomy was applied as sole treatment. A follow up of six years confirmed surgery to be a sufficient approach. The discussion presents a review of up to date world literature concerning the histopathological features, prognosis, and treatment of MT&SCC.

Milk of calcium cysts masquerading as renal calculi - a trap for the unwary.
Sylwester Gerus, Wojciech Apoznański, Tomasz Szydełko, Dariusz Patkowski
Milk of calcium is a colloidal suspension of calcium salts occurring in caliceal cysts or diverticula. Although reported to be rare, in fact it seems to be much commoner than previously thought. It has characteristic appearances on plain x-rays, ultrasound and CT scanning particularly in prone and supine positions. Often entirely asymptomatic, its appearance may be mistaken for renal stones on radiography or angiomyolipomas on ultrasonography. A series of cases is presented outlining its characteristic features and reviewing the relevant literature.

"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
