Pain scores of patients undergoing finger-guided prostate biopsy using lignocaine and oral paracetamol at the University Teaching Hospital in Lusaka, Zambia – a cross-sectional study
A prostate biopsy is the standard method for prostate cancer diagnosis. A transperineal or transrectal biopsy may be performed, the latter is the case in our setting. Either is a painful procedure, hence, a periprostatic nerve block is the standard method for pain control for a transrectal prostate biopsy.
Combined robot-assisted radical prostatectomy and anterior resection for synchronous prostate and colorectal carcinoma: a case series
PCa and CRC are the two most common cancers in males, contributing to 15% and 9% of new cancers, respectively. The coexistence of both cancers has been described in the literature, with evidence showing an increased risk of a second primary PCa within one year after diagnosis of CRC. The exact incidence of synchronous PCa and CRC remains unknown. Combined RARPAR represents a potential single surgery for the management of both synchronous PCa and CRC coupled with the advantages of a minimally invasive surgical modality.
A post-hysteroscopy insertion of an intrauterine device leading to a bladder stone
The IUD is a widely used contraceptive method. It is easy to implement, reversible and cost-effective. Still, it can lead to complications such as uterine perforation. We present a case of an IUD that triggered the formation of a 5 cm bladder stone in a 36-year-old female.
