Morphoconstitutional analysis of calculi is often very useful for identifying the cause of urolithiasis while the clinical signs and the past history of the patient are not contributive. Stone morhology, in addition to crystalline composition may be of a valuable help for the early detection of severe lithogenic conditions such as primary hyperoxaluria, adenine phosphoribosyltransferase deficiency or acquired distal tubular acidosis.

Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) end erectile dysfunction (ED) are frequently observed in the aging male.

Materials and methods

A systematic review of the literature was performed on Pubmed including the keywords “erectile dysfonction”, “benign prostatic hyperplasia” and/or “low urinary tract symptoms”.


Eighteen manuscripts were selected, including 10 retrospective clinical studies, four of basic science, three of pharmacology and a review article. A significant relationship was found in most of the studies, and physiopathological hypothesis as atherosclerosis and autonomic hyperactivity were enlighten.


A statistical independent relationship exists between BPH and ED. The use of PDE-5i could be interesting regarding the common pathological process involved.

L'énucléation de la prostate par laser Holmium
Holmium laser enucleation of the prostate
- technique chirurgicale
- Réf : Progrès FMC, 2012, 3, 22, F83


Holmium laser resection of the prostate was first described by Gilling et al. in 1995. HoLRP has now evolved into holmium laser enucleation of the prostate (HoLEP) with the advent of the intravesical soft-tissue morcellator. The procedure involves anatomical dissection of the prostatic tissue off the surgical capsule in a retrograde fashion using a high-powered holmium laser followed by intravesical morcellation of the prostatic tissue. Some groups believe that the HoLEP procedure is the endoscopic equivalent to a simple open prostatectomy and may be superior to transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) or even open prostatectomy.
