Abstract In this penultimate installment in the educational series on evidence based medicine, the Research Committee of the European Society of Pediatric Urology will focus on clinical application. In previous communications we focused on optimizing medical decisions through the use of well-conducted research publications and have covered the topics of background, hierarchy of evidence, information acquisition, and critical appraisal tools. The goal is to guide the clinician in how to use evide...

Abstract Objective To review the robustness of hydronephrosis (HN) literature with the application of fragility index (FI) and fragility quotient (FQ) calculations. Methods A literature review was conducted using Pubmed, Medline and Ovid for “hydronephrosis” and associated terms and we included all studies with at least 2 groups being compared. FI was calculated by populating study results into a two-by-two contingency table and generating a p-value using Fisher's exact test. Next, events were m...

Summary Introduction Acute scrotum is a common presentation to the pediatric emergency department, and ultrasound is frequently used to narrow the differential diagnosis. Point-of-care ultrasound is increasingly used by urologists and emergency physicians, and could potentially be used to detect pediatric testicular torsion. Objectives We sought to determine the accuracy of point-of-care ultrasound by pediatric emergency physicians in diagnosing testicular torsion, and the agreement between poin...

Summary Background Polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) are widely used flame retardants, and their endocrine-disrupting properties have focused growing attention regarding their teratogenic potential. We have recently documented that mothers of children born with hypospadias had been exposed to statistically higher levels of PBDE during pregnancy than mothers of healthy controls. However, it is not known which congeners of PBDE are associated with this putative teratogenic effect. Objectives ...

Summary The present article is a second part related to evidence based medicine (EBM) in a series of five by the European society for paediatric urology (ESPU) research committee. It will present the different databases/search engines available to clinicians and researchers and describe strategies to focus the search to one's particular needs. Indeed, databases/search engines used and search strategy should vary according to the goal of the research. If the aim is to address a clinical problem, ...

Summary This manuscript is the fourth in a five part series related to evidence based medicine (EBM) provided by the European society of pediatric urology (ESPU) research committee. It will present a way to come to a quick and critical appraisal of available evidence on a specific topic: a CAT (critically appraised topic). The way how to write a cat is described for interventions to be compared to a control group, and for other, more generalized clinical questions. While systematic reviews provi...

Background The surgical safety checklist is an evidence-based global initiative designed to reduce perioperative morbidity and mortality. However, the expounded benefits of the surgical safety checklist have not been realized in naturalistic settings. This may be related to the quality of surgical safety checklists being performed in operating rooms. Methods In this explanatory, sequential, mixed-methods study, 2 trained observers used a standardized tool to record the compliance and quality of ...

The present article is the third installment in a five-part series related to evidence-based medicine (EBM) provided by the European Society for Paediatric Urology Research Committee. It will present the different levels of evidence (i.e. systematic review, randomized controlled trial, cohort study) available to clinicians and researchers and describe the strengths of each study type. While EBM provides a valuable construct to aid in medical decision-making, it remains imperative that this infor...

Summary Introduction Penile ischemic injury is a reported catastrophic complication after complete primary repair of exstrophy (CPRE). Aiming to improve the bladder exstrophy-epispadias repair outcomes, the study institution adopted a modified staged exstrophy repair to incorporate the advantages of CPRE by avoiding concurrent epispadias repair and adding bilateral ureteral re-implantation and bladder neck tailoring (staged repair of bladder exstrophy with bilateral ureteral re-implantation [SRB...
