    Predicting Regional Lymph Node Metastasis in Carcinoma of the Penis : A Comparison Between Fine-Needle Aspiration Cytology, Sentinel Lymph Node Biopsy and Medial Inguinal Lymph Node Biopsy


    Br J Urol 81 : 453-457, 1998

       


    Conclusions – Clinical assessment alone is not accurate in identifying candidates for block dissection for penile carcinoma. When nodes are palpable, FNAC accurate and specific.

      


    In men with impalpable nodes, a preliminary medical inguinal nodes biopsy, followed by sentinal node biopsy when medical inguinal nodes biopsy is negative, enables accurate identification of patients with metastases in the groin nodes.

       


    When the findings are positive, block dissection can be performed at the same time.

         

Urethra


         

  • The Efficacy of Urethrolysis without Re-suspension for Iatrogenic
    Urethral Obstruction
    .  
    HB Goldman, et al (Cleveland Clinic Found,
    Ohio)  
    J Urol
    161: 196-199, 1999.


          

    Urethral
    obstruction occurs in 1% to 20% of patients after
    surgery for stress urinary incontinence.
    Treatment consists of urethrolysis with or
    without resuspension.
    The efficacy of urethrolysis without
    resuspension was retrospectively evaluated.

         

    Conclusion
    : Transvaginal urethrolysis without resuspension is an
    effective treatemnt for iatrogenic urethral
    obstruction.
    In this study, it resulted in a 77% success
    rate, with 7% voiding well but having some
    incontinence.

         

    Editors
    comment that the dilemma facing the pelvic surgeon is 
    whether 
    another suspension should be done when taking
    down the previous sutures.
    The current report addresses this question and
    indicates that such a “resuspension” is not
    necessary. Seventy-seven percent of patients voided well
    without incontinence.
