Estimating the Impact of COVID-19 on Urology: Data from a Large Nationwide Cohort The impact of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic on urology worldwide has been the subject of frequent speculation, but population-level estimates on changes in urology care are sparsely reported. Here, we use newly released data from a large USA-based cohort to provide further insight into the impact of the pandemic on our field. For a final cohort of 900,900 patient encounters in 418 hospitals, we describe an approximately 20% decrease in urology-specific emergency room (ER) visits (19.4%, 95% confidence interval [CI] 17.4–21.5%), admissions to a urology service (19.3%, 95% CI 13.7–24.9%), and ambulatory urology surgeries (22.9%, 95% CI 13.2–32.6%) during March 2020 relative to baseline.
Minimally Invasive Buccal Mucosa Dorsal Graft for Female Distal Urethroplasty Female urethral stricture (FUS) represents a sporadic condition. There is a lack of data and standardized guidelines on diagnostics and therapeutics. Several surgical techniques have been described for FUS urethroplasty, among which the flap-based or graft-based ones are most reported. Buccal mucosa graft (BMG) represents the gold standard for male urethroplasty, and this can theoretically be applied also to FUS treatment.
