Should all specimens taken during surgical treatment of patients with benign prostatic hyperplasia be assessed by a pathologist?
Michał Andrzej Skrzypczyk, Jakub Tomasz Dobruch, Łukasz Nyk, Przemysław Szostek, Stanisław Szempliński, Andrzej Borówka
In some patients submitted to TURP or prostatectomy (OAE) due to BPH pathological evaluation(PE) reveals coexistence of prostate cancer (PCa) and BPH. The aim of the study is to evaluate the incidence of PCa diagnosed incidentally in prostate specimens taken during BPH surgery, to assess the need of routine PE and to define the group of patients in whom PE could be abandoned without the risk of omitting clinically significant PCa.

Radical prostatectomy specimens - a voice against focal therapy
Przemysław Adamczyk, Jakub Tworkiewicz, Tomasz Drewa
Idea of organ preserving therapy emerged, because of serious side effects of radical prostate carcer treatment. Rationale is to preserve prostate gland, along with potency and continence, offering good cancer control with appropriate treatment. The idea of gland sparing therapy is quite controversial. Presently, EAU Guidelines propose focal therapy as experimental method.

Should the decision for active surveillance in prostate cancer patients be based on a single histological assessment?
Łukasz Nyk, Tomasz Golabek, Jakub Dobruch, Michał Andrzej Skrzypczyk, Tomasz Dzik, Maciej Wysocki, Piotr L. Chłosta, Andrzej Borówka
Active surveillance (AS) is always associated with a degree of uncertainty, whether or not prostate biopsy (TRUSBx) results can be indeed relied on in terms of cancer stage and histological grade as the most commonly observed limitations of TRUSBx are undergrading, understaging and underestimating true prostate cancer (PCa) volume. We evaluated prostate cancer characteristics in men who could have been offered active surveillance based on clinical features and TRUSBx results and compared them with the same patient's histology results following their radical prostatectomy (RP)

Testicular Sarcoidosis masquerading as testicular carcinoma
James Joel, Jennifer Thomas, Kanwar Gill, Chandra Shekhar Biyani
We present a case of a 27-year-old man presented with a history of weight loss. A chest x-ray demonstrated hilar lymphadenopathy and he was treated with anti tuberculosis treatment. He noticed a painless left scrotal swelling. A scrotal ultrasound scan raised the possibility of testicular cancer. He underwent an orchidectomy and histology confirmed a testicular sarcoidosis. He was commenced on steroid treatment.

A review of prospective Clinical Trials for neurogenic bladder: The place of surgery, experimental techniques and devices
Cristian Persu, Emmanuel Braschi, John Lavelle
The neurogenic urinary bladder has been known for at least 30 years now and the concepts behind it are continuously evolving, but there is actually not much work that has been done to accumulate solid clinical evidence in this field. We review the surgical and experimental techniques used in the management of this condition.

Cystolithiasis in women as a distant complication after minimal invasive treatment of stress urinary incontinence
Mariusz Blewniewski, Michał Markowski, Rafał Kliś, Waldemar Różański
Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI) is a condition of social dimension which generally pertains to women of various age. The only effective treatments of SUI are surgical procedures. The use of 'tension free trans-vaginal tape' (TVT) insures a minimal invasive procedure, but also carries complications from long term effects. One of complications may be the migration tape, into the urinary bladder creating conditions for urinary stones. There are a number of treatment methods for cystolithasis, among them optical lithotripter, ultrasound and pneumatic probes, and recently, the holmium laser.

Ahmed Ali, Sanjaya Swain, Murugesan Manoharan
Pelvic lipomatosis is a rare benign disease, associated with over growth of fat in the perivesical and perirectal area. It is of unknown etiology. We describe a 5 year old male with pelvic lipomatosis causing bladder storage dysfunction symptoms and pelvic pain that affected his quality of life. Surgical excision of the pelvic mass with bladder preservation was performed. After surgery patient had a marked improvement of his quality of life, with resolution of bladder storage dysfunction symptoms and pelvic pain.

The new horizons of pharmacotherapy. Unexpected pharmacological actions and a new therapeutic strategy of phosphodiesterase-5 inhibitors.
Stanisław Wroński
Benign prostate hyperplasia and erectile dysfunction affects a significant subset of men. BPH and ED may have the same promoting conditions and are the strong predicting risk factors to each other. A significant number of these patients bother with lower urinary tract symptoms. Direct correlation of age, ED and LUTS severity has been well documented. Many sexually dysfunctional patients with concomitant BPH receive alpha-adrenergic antagonists and any PDE5 inhibitor simultaneously. Phosphodiesterase-5 inhibitors relieve LUTS symptoms in the course of BPH and reduce independent detrusor contractions

"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
