Low pre-operative levels of serum albumin predict lymph node metastases and ultimately correlate with a biochemical recurrence of prostate cancer in radical prostatectomy patients.
Takehiro Sejima, Hideto Iwamoto, Toshihiko Masago, Shuichi Morizane, Akihisa Yao, Tadahiro Isoyama, Hiroyuki Kadowaki, Atsushi Takenaka
To date, only few studies focusing on the issue of host general and immune activity have been performed in localized prostate cancer (PCa). The aim of this study was to elucidate potent non tumor-related biomarkers which express aggressiveness of PCa treated by radical prostatectomy (RP).

Optical Coherence Tomography Diagnostics for Onco-Urology. Review of Clinical Perspectives
Sergiy Kharchenko, Jan Adamowicz, Maciej Wojtkowski, Tomasz Drewa
Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is investigating widely for urologic pathology. The current imaging of urogenital cancers can not be perfect, thus, routine methods demands new updates or inventions of alternative radiological scope. OCT presents so-called "live" optical biopsy. The authors aim to review this modality for onco-urological purposes. .

Resveratrol in prostate diseases - a short review
Milosz Jasiński, Lidia Jasińska, Marcin Ogrodowczyk
Resveratrol is a plant-derived polyphenol suggested to have many beneficial health effects, including antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-proliferative, proapoptotic and anti-angiogenic. It is even speculated that uptake of resveratrol by red wine consumption could be behind the so-called French paradox – the lower incidence of cardiovascular diseases in French population. These properties, together with good absorption and tolerance, would make it an attractive agent in prostatic diseases, especially in cancer prevention and treatment

Partial cystectomy in a 76 year old patient suffering from small cell carcinoma of the urinary bladder
Radosław Starownik, Agnieszka Korolczuk, Krzysztof Bar, Paweł Płaza, Jacek Kiś, Kamil Muc, Marek Bar
Small cell carcinomas of the urinary bladder originating from the neuroendocrine cells are extremely rare. Pure SCC of the bladder is known of high metastatic potential, with lymph nodes, viscera and vertebrae bones most common sites of secondary deposits. Prognosis of the disease remains poor as majority of cases present with advanced disease. The overall survival rate at 5 years in advanced stages does not exceed 8%. SCC of the urinary bladder can be treated with local resection of the tumor or radical cystectomy with neoadjuvant or adjuvant chemotherapy

An incidentally diagnosed prostatic ductal adenocarcinoma
Paweł Stajno, Tomasz Kalinowski, Marcin Ligaj, Tomasz Demkow
Ductal adenocarcinoma of the prostate was initially described in 1967 by Melicow and Patcher. It was given the erroneous name endometrioid carcinoma, however, further studies confirmed the prostatic origin of this tumor. Currently DAP is classified as a histological variant of prostatic carcinoma.. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Benign fibroepithelial polyp of the ureter
Petr Klézl, Otakar Štanc, Romana Richterová, Zdeněk Gilbert, František Záťura
Benign tumors of the ureter are rare and most often appear in a form of fibroepithelial polyp (1). The fibroepithelial polyps represent between 2 to 6% of all benign tumors of the urinary tract (2). Authors report on 2 cases of fibroepithelial polyps of the ureter which they treated between 1993 - 2009. One case was presented by acute urinary retention and gross hematuria. In second case hematuria and flank pain were observed. One case was treated with open surgery and partial resection of the ureter, the second was treated endoscopically when the base of the polyp was well identified.

Search for a cause of disseminated intravascular coagulopathy resulted in finding metastatic prostate cancer
Muhammad Forat Yazdi, Golnaz Malekzadeh
Disseminated intravascular coagulopathy (DIC) is the acquired disease which happens in variety of underlying diseases such as solid tumors. Prostate cancer is one of these tumors and DIC is the most prevalent coagulopathy in it, but it is rarely reported as the first manifestation of it. This paper is a report of an 85 year old man who presented hematouria and vast ecchymoses. Complementary investigation confirmed the presence of prostate cancer with presentation of DIC. Although DIC is a rare manifestation of metastatic prostate cancer but it should be consider when no other reason can be found to explain it.

Rami Abou Ghaida, Hajar Ayoub, Rami Nasr, Ghada Issa, Mohammad Bulbul
Breast cancer is the most common malignancy in woman. Urinary bladder is an unsual site for metastasis from primary tumors of the breast, especially when it is the only organ involved. We present the case of a female patient with known breast cancer stage T2N3M0 who developed isolated bladder metastasis 5 years after the primary diagnosis. We reviewed the literature for similar cases and discussed the clinical presentation, the pathophysiology and the prognosis of this entity.

alpha-Blockade, apoptosis and prostate shrinkage: how are they related?
Piotr Chłosta, Tomasz Drewa, Steven Kaplan
alpha 1- adrenoreceptor antagonists, such as terazosin and doxazosin induce prostate programmed cell death (apoptosis) within prostate epithelial and stromal cells in vitro. This treatment should cause prostate volume decrease, However, this has never been observed in clinical conditions. The ai of this paper is to review the disconnect between these two processes.

The true prevalence of congenital penile curvature (CPC) is difficult to determine. Some study reports suggests that this problem may occur in as many as to 10% of male population [1]. However a literature search of the Medline database revealed no reference concerning familial appearance of congenital penile curvature. For that reason we would like to present our case series.. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Ureterocolic Fistula Secondary to a Self-Expanding Retrievable Ureteral Stent
George Ransford, David Pan, Ahmed Eldefrawy, Govindarajan Narayanan, Murugesan Manoharan
Self-expanding stents are relatively new in the field of urology and have primarily been used for permanent remodeling of benign or malignant stricture. We are presenting a rare and interesting case of a ureterocolic fistula that formed secondary to placement of an expandable, retrievable metal stent in the ureter. After multiple retrieval efforts, the self-expanding metal stent was finally retrieved and a ureterocolic fistula was appreciated on antegrade pyelography. The patient chose to manage it non-surgically, with routine nephroureteral catheter exchanges, and her creatinine continues to remain stable.

"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
