- 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.

- 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.

- 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).

- 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.

- 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.
