Taiwan is on the stone belt, so does many Asian countries. After the stone treatment, many physicians insert an internal stent, Double-J stent, to ensure passage of urine postoperatively. There are always good and bad things of any procedure or artificial materials. In this issue, Po-Jen Hsiao made an excellent review on “Lower Urinary Tract Symptoms Associated with Double J Stent.” This is a must read article for all urologist. Nasreen Jahan in a study titled “Effect of hydroalcoholic extract of Cyperus rotundus L. rhizome against ethylene glycol and ammonium chloride induced urolithiasis in male Sprague Dawley rats” explored the possibility of plant extract to treat stone in rats. Prevention of stone occurrence and recurrence is the key in the treatment of nephrolithiasis. More works are warranted to overcome this common urological disease around the world. “Retroperitoneal fibrosis: challenge in diagnosis and treatment” reported the challenges were met and solved in Tzu-Chun Wei group. Retroperitoneal fibrosis is not common, and lessons learned by the others can be useful for us.

Urological oncology is always hot in this journal and others. Yen-Chieh Wang group reported their experiments on “Label-free quantitative phosphoproteomics reveals the role of beta-estradiol in sunitinib-resistant renal cell carcinoma growth via perturbing transforming growing factor beta pathway.” “Can robot-assisted radical prostatectomy improve functional outcomes compared to laparoscopic radical prostatectomy? Experience at a laparoscopic center” summarized the recent clinical experience of Victor C. Lin group, one of the largest endoscopic centers in Taiwan.

Clinical applicable and useful articles are among the purposes of Urological Science. In this issue, readers can enjoy reading the “Consensus Report on Controversial Use of 5-Alpha-Reductase Inhibitor in Patients with Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia under Taiwan National Health Insurance Regulations” and “Useful Tips and Tricks for Secure Circumcision.” More interesting articles can be found in this issue.
