Introduction: As the medical field is moving towards personalized and tailored approaches, we entered the era of precision surgery for the management of genitourinary cancers1. This is facilitated by the implementation of new technologies, among which robotic surgery stands out for the significant impact in the surgical field over the last two decades.Areas covered: This article reviews the latest evidence on robotic surgery for the treatment of urologic cancers, including prostate, kidney, blad...
Introduction: Assessment of intraocular pressure (IOP) is a core diagnostic tool in management of glaucoma. All established ways to measure IOP use indirect approaches through ocular tissues, mainly the cornea or the sclera. Telemetric IOP measurement with an implantable device could eliminate bias caused by indirect techniques and could allow continuous monitoring. A favorable safety profile, high efficacy and good tolerability are key requirements.Areas covered: The Eyemate-IO system (Implanda...
Introduction: Prostate magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is commonly used for localized disease mainly to detect intraprostatic lesions and to guide biopsies. despite its documented success in clinical practice, limitations still exist for prostate MRI. In this review we discuss common clinical uses of prostate MRI, its limitations and potential solutions for those limitations.Areas Covered: Current uses of prostate MRI and challenges discussed. Literature search in PubMed was completed using the...

Introduction: Endovenous stenting is being increasingly used for the management of iliofemoral venous outflow obstruction due to thrombotic or non-thrombotic iliac vein lesions (NIVL). Dedicated venous stents have replaced re-purposed arterial stents but there are limited data on their relative safety and efficacy.Areas covered: This review looks at the available literature on the safety and efficacy of the Veniti Vici Venous stent (Boston Scientific), a specific venous stent, and compares its o...

Introduction: A pre-existing mechanical mitral valve (MMV) is thought to be a thrombogenic risk factor after continuous-flow left ventricular assist device (CF-LVAD) implantation. We sought to evaluate the management and outcomes of pre-existing MMVs in patients following CF-LVAD implantation.Areas Covered: An electronic search was performed to identify the presence of an MMV at the time of CF-LVAD implantation. Of the 1,168 studies identified, only five studies consisting of seven CF-LVAD patie...

Introduction: Swept-source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT) imaging has ushered in an era of rapid and high-resolution imaging of the retinochoroid that provides detailed patho-anatomy of various layers.Areas Covered: In this detailed review, the technology of swept-source imaging including its principles and working have been discussed. The applications of SS-OCT in various conditions including age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, pachychoroid spectrum of diseases, and i...
