Urological Science has made an attempt to publish bimonthly in 2018 and achieved good success. All the issues were published in time! Thanks to the good quality of papers submitted and high quality of double-blinded review, the number of full-text reading was approaching 2400, and the number of downloaded PDF was more than 600 per month now. Two-thirds of our readers are overseas, mainly from India, US, and France! One-third of submitted articles were from overseas, up to now authors were from 14 countries! Urological Science is more and more international! Definitely, Urological Science is the choice of publishing your hard works done in clinical and basic science related to urology.

In this issue, timely review on “Multiparametric Magnetic Resonance Imaging of Prostate Cancer” highlighted the importance of precise diagnosis in the prostate carcinoma. Delicate surgery with correct staging is always the concern of all urologists undergoing radical prostatectomy. “Is it worth removing prostatic anterior fat pad to detect lymph node metastasis of prostate cancer during robotic-assisted radical prostatectomy?” answers this question in a scientific way.

More topics are published in this issue. “The incremental benefit of upfront surgery in renal cell carcinoma with venous tumor thrombus of the inferior venae cavae” shows the results in this difficult surgical situation in renal cell carcinoma. “Early Versus Late Trail of Catheter Removal in Patients with Urinary Retention Secondary to Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia under Tamsulosin Treatment” answers the question in the daily practice of urology. Single-port surgery is an important branch in modern surgical innovation. “A single-institution experience with laparoendoscopic single-site retroperitoneal adrenalectomy” discloses how good a modern surgery could be in the previous large wound surgery. Penile fracture is a sad situation that men concern very much. “A tertiary center experience of fracture penis – Early surgical management with a clinical diagnosis” provides recent outcomes in this hazard clinical situation in men. Obesity does cause a lot of health problems. “The impact of body mass index on the stone composition of 191 patients who received percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) in a single hospital” provides more evidence that obesity was a risk factor in PCNL, and this information can be used in shared decision-making with the patients.
