Advances in open and endovascular techniques have resulted in novel approaches to repair of acute type A aortic dissection. Hybrid arch procedures involve open arch resection and stent grafting of the descending aorta with stent graft insertion in one of two ways: Frozen or Staged. In this article, pros and cons of the two different paradigms of emerging hybrid arch techniques for acute type A aortic dissections are discussed...ReadMore

Approximately one in five men will demonstrate biochemical recurrence (BCR) following local therapy for prostate cancer (PCa). Advanced imaging modalities including positron emission tomography (PET) imaging of various radiotracers have become more commonplace to visualize foci of disease recurrence. The authors performed a systematic review of the literature to describe current evidence in support of 18F-fluciclovine (Axumin) PET imaging in this clinical setting...ReadMore

Benign prostatic hyperplasia and hypertension are common age-related comorbidities. Although the etiology of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is still largely unresolved and poorly understood, a significant age-independent association was found between BPH and hypertension, indicating a common pathophysiological factor for both diseases. It has previously been suggested that the development of essential hypertension may be related to diet-induced hyperinsulinemia. This study follows the question whether BPH may develop due to the same mechanism, thereby explaining the well-known comorbidity of these 2 disorders...ReadMore

Men with urinary retention secondary to benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) are prone to genitourinary infections. Physicians should be aware of the current antimicrobial susceptibility pattern in this population if empirical treatment is needed. The goal of this study was to evaluate variations in prevalence, composition and antimicrobial susceptibility of bacterial flora in men with indwelling catheters subjected to surgery for BPH in chosen time periods since 1994. Necessary changes in empirical therapy were also assessed...ReadMore

Intra-abdominal hypertension (IAH) is common in critically ill patients. Diagnosis is based on measurement of intraabdominal pressure, most commonly via the bladder.  Modern imaging techniques with plain radiographs, computed tomography and magnetic resonance can help establish the diagnosis and also guide treatment. In 2013 the Abdominal Compartment Society (WSACS) published updated consensus definitions and recommendations for management of IAH and abdominal compartment syndrome (ACS). This review will give a concise overview of the important role radiographic imaging plays within these management guidelines...ReadMore
