Abstract <p>To evaluate morbidity in Hybrid Radical Prostatectomy (HRP, hybridized laparoscopic and open retropubic radical prostatectomy). The operative and pathological outcomes obtained in 25 consecutive patients who underwent HRP were reviewed. The median operating time was 220min, median blood loss was 550ml, and no patient required an allogenic blood transfusion. No severe postoperative complications were observed. The surgical margin was positive in 12% of all patients, and in 1 patient with pT2 or less (4.5%). These results indicate that HRP is safe and may be able to combine the benefits of both laparoscopic and open procedures.</p>

Abstract <p>Urinary tract infections (UTIs) due to fluoroquinolone-insusceptible Escherichia coli have become increasingly common in recent years. We investigated the potential relationships between clinical measures to combat fluoroquinolone-insusceptible E. coli and experimental analyses on E. coli isolates. Over a 14-year period from 1994 through 2007, a total of 828 E. coli isolates were collected from patients (one isolate per patient) with UTI at the urology ward of Okayama University Hospital. We analyzed the mutations in quinolone resistance-determining regions of DNA gyrase (gyrA) and topoisomerase IV (parC). The production of biofilm by these isolates was also examined and the associated medical records were retrospectively reviewed. Seven of 189 (3.7%) strains from uncomplicated UTIs and 82 of 639 (12.8%) strains from complicated UTIs were insusceptible to fluoroquinolones. Amino acid replacements of type II topoisomerases were frequently observed at positions 83 and 87 in GyrA and at positions 80 and 84 in ParC. No significant difference in the biofilm-forming capabilities was observed between fluoroquinolone-susceptible and -insusceptible E. coli. Our study suggests that biofilm formation of fluoroquinolone-insusceptible E. coli isolates is not a major mechanism of resistance in patients with UTI.</p>

Abstract Polypropylene mesh implants for the correction of pelvic organ prolapse (POP) are now available in Japan. We developed an innovative approach for correcting POP by placing polypropylene mesh transvaginally with laparoscopic assistance. From June 2007 through March 2010, sixteen consecutive patients with symptomatic stage 2 or 3 pelvic organ prolapse underwent the laparoscopic-assisted tension-free vaginal mesh procedure at Okayama University Hospital. All patients were evaluated before and at 1, 3, 6, and 12 months after surgery. Female sexual function was also evaluated with the Female Sexual Function Index (FSFI). The procedure was performed successfully without significant complications. Fifteen of 16 patients were considered anatomically cured (93.8%) at 12 months postoperatively. One patient with a recurrent stage 3 vaginal vault prolapse required sacral colpopexy six months postoperatively. Total FSFI scores improved significantly from 10.3±1.3 at baseline to 18.0±1.2 at 12 months after surgery. The laparoscopic-assisted trans-vaginal mesh is a safe, effective, and simple procedure for POP repairs. The procedure not only restores anatomic relationships but also improves sexual function.
