 CME Test



Please read this issue of Urological Science and return the postage-paid reply slip with your answers by February, 2020. A score of 80% or better will earn two CME credits. Questions/answers:

Compared to patients with renal stones <5 cm, what statement considering the tubeless PCNL performed in patients with renal stones ≥5 cm is incorrect?

No significant diffrence about the incidence of postoperative fever

No significant difference about the incidence of postoperative sepsis

Longer postoperative hospital stays

Higher transfusion rate

Longer duration of surgery.

Urol Sci 2019:30(6):272-275.

What statement considering the relationship between prostate cancer and prostate volume in men undergoing radical prostatectomy for prostate cancer is wrong?

Patients with prostate volume >60 g were less likely to have high grade Gleason score of prostate cancer

Patients with prostate volume >60 g were less likely to have nodepositive disease

Patients with prostate volume >60 g were less likely to have biochemical recurrence

Prostate volume <30 g were independent predictors of reduced biochemical recurrence at mean followup of 24 months

Linear regression showed an inverse relationship between prostate and tumor volume.

Urol Sci 2019:30(6):255-261.

Compared to the monopolar transurethral resection of the prostate (M-TURP), what statement considering the bipolar transurethral resection of the prostate (BTURP) is incorrect?

Lower mean resection time

Lower drop in hemoglobin level

More reduction in the gland size

No significant difference about the Drop in sodium level

No significant difference about the improvement of International Prostate Symptom Score (IPSS).

Urol Sci 2019:30(6):262-265.

According to the study by Yu-Chiao Lin et al., what statement about open extravesical bladder cuff resection (BCR) for the management of primary upper tract urothelial carcinoma is wrong?

Bladder recurrence was significantly higher in patients with residual ureteral orifice (RUO)

Open extravesical BCR does not guarantee the complete removal of ipsilateral ureteral orifice

Increased risks of local recurrence and contralateral urinary tract recurrence were noted in patients with residual ureteral orifice

Increased risk of superficial intravesical recurrence was also noted in patients with residual ureteral orifice

Most of the intravesical recurrences were superficial and more prone to be found near the RUO/scar.

Urol Sci 2019:30(6):250-254.

About the efficacy of transurethral incision of the bladder neck (TUI-BN) in women with detrusor underactivity (DU), what statement is wrong?

About 49% of patients achieved a satisfactory outcome after a single TUIBN procedure with a mean follow-up period of >5 years

Maximum flow rate, postvoided residual urine amount and quality of life were significant improved after TUI-BN

Clean intermittent catheterization (CIC) was not necessary in all patients after TUI-BN

The complications of TUI-BN included stress urinary incontinence and vesicovaginal fistula

All statement are correct.
