Assessment of the infiltrative character of bladder cancer at the time of transurethral resection: a single center study
Paweł Grzegółkowski, Krystian Kaczmarek, Artur Lemiński, Michał Soczawa, Adam Golab, Marcin Słojewski
Determining the clinical stage of bladder carcinoma before radical cystectomy characterized high inaccuracy. The discrepancy in some reports go up to 48%. Therefore clinical staging of bladder carcinoma is not recommended before radical treatment as it is for prostate cancer. However, the accuracy of clinical assessment of the muscle invasive character of the tumors at the time of transurethral resection has not been studied. In our study we estimate the accuracy of clinical staging during endoscopic treatment.

68Ga-PSMA PET/CT imaging in recurrent prostate cancer: Where are we now?
Ewa Witkowska-Patena, Andrzej Mazurek, Mirosław Dziuk
Prostate cancer (PCa) is a major health concern worldwide with up to 60% of patients experiencing biochemical relapse after radical treatment. Early diagnosis of PCa recurrence is of high importance for successful salvage therapy. The need for accurate imaging has prompted the introduction of prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA)-based radiotracers for positron emission tomography (PET).

Is overactive bladder in the female surgically curable by ligament repair?
Bernhard Liedl, Hiromi Inoue, Yuki Sekigichi, Max Haverfield, Peter Richardson, Alexander Yassouridis, Florian Wagenlehner
'OAB' symptoms (urge frequency nocturia) are not generally considered surgically curable by learned institutions. The Integral Theory hypothesizes OAB is a prematurely activated, but normal micturition reflex caused by loose suspensory ligaments and potentially curable surgically by repairing such ligaments.
Objective: To test this hypothesis by surgical repair of loose cardinal and uterosacral ligaments in patients with 2nd degree or greater uterine/apical prolapse.

Is a ureteral stent required after use of ureteral access sheath in prestented patients who undergo flexible ureteroscopy?
Gaston Astroza, Manuel Catalán, Lucas Consigliere, Tomas Selman, Jose Salvado, Francisco Rubilar
Use of a ureteral access sheath (UAS) within flexible ureteroscopy (fURS) for the management of kidney and ureteral stones has shown improvements in its effectiveness, but it is also associated with increased risk of ureteral injury. Use of ureteral stent (US) after fURS is recommended by some authors, because of its role in reducing postoperative pain and preventing complications. Our objective is to determine if postoperative stenting is necessary in prestented patients that underwent fURS using UAS.

Detection of Early DJ-Stent Encrustation by Sonographic Twinkling-Artifacts - a Pilot Study
Roman Blaheta, Anton Oertl, Roman A. Blaheta, Karen Nelson, Hanns Ackermann, Axel Haferkamp, Tobias Engl
Ureter obstruction caused by a retro-peritoneal tumor is treated by inserting an indwelling ureter splint (DJ-stent). Indwelling duration is limited by cumulative crystalline deposits into the splint, eventually causing reimpaired urine flow. Deciding when a DJ-stent must be replaced is important since belated removal can be accompanied by severe complications. X-ray or conventional sonography do not allow satisfactory evaluation of early incrustation, therefore, the use of sonographic twinkling artifacts (TA) to provide accurate stent surveillance was investigated.

En bloc kidney transplantation from a 24 month old donor to an adult recipient: case presentation and literature review
Daimantas Milonas, Inga Skarupskiene, Povilas Aniulis, Irmante Stramaityte, Egle Dalinkeviciene, Asta Stankuviene
Paediatric kidney transplantation into adult recipients is a well-recognised technique. However, there are different opinions regarding two methods of transplantation. These are: single kidney transplantation and en bloc kidney transplantation from donors up to 20 kg. We are reporting first successful en bloc kidney transplantation from a small, paediatric donor into an adult recipient in our institution and discussing according recent literature possible concerns using this technique. Despite that paediatric donors are uncommon and surgical experiences limited, en bloc kidney transplantation could be performed successfully and could be used to expand the donor pool.

"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
