Background:Better preservation strategies for the storage of DCD grafts are essential to improve graft function and to increase the kidney donor pool. We compared continuous Normothermic Ex Vivo Kidney Perfusion (NEVKP) with hypothermic anoxic machine perfusion (HAMP) and static cold storage (SCS) i

Abstract This communication contextualizes the importance of clinical experience or experience-based medicine within the current paradigm of evidence-based medicine, complementing our previously published series of five short educational articles on evidence-based medicine. Previously we focused on optimizing medical decisions using publications of well-conducted research. Previous commentaries included a backgrounder, the hierarchy of evidence, data acquisition, tools for critical appraisal, an...

ABSTRACT OBJECTIVE To review the robustness of hydronephrosis 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 2-by-2 contingency table and generating a P value using Fisher's exact test. Next, events were manually ...

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 Background This investigation aims to assess the variability in practice patterns regarding management of children with cryptorchidism (UDT) among pediatric urologists (U) and pediatric surgeons (S) practicing in Canada. Methods All active members of Pediatric Urologists of Canada (PUC) and Canadian Association of Pediatric Surgery (CAPS) were invited to participate in an online multiple-choice type questionnaire with clinical scenarios in management of UDT. Responses were compared betw...

Summary 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 th...

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 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...

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...
