Abstract : Transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) is currently the gold standard procedure for benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH). It may lead to various complications, such as urinary tract infection (UTI). Antibiotic prophylaxis use for TURP in the world has been studied, especially in the high-risk case. We aimed to evaluate the effectiveness of antibiotic prophylaxis in reducing bacteriuria and sepsis incidences on post-TURP patients. A systematic search was conducted in PUBMED, SCIENCE-DIRECT databases. The eligible analysis and article selection followed The Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analysis (PRISMA) protocol, analysis of bias used Cochrane Risk of Bias Tools, each was done by 2 independent reviewers. Five RCT articles are declared eligible and involved 872 patients. Forest plot shows data heterogeneity from post-TURP bacteriuria incidence, and there is significant difference between antibiotic prophylaxis and placebo/no therapy (OR=0.38, 95% CI=0.17 – 0.88; p = 0.02). The Forest plot shows data homogeneity from post-TURP sepsis incidence, and there is no significant difference between antibiotic prophylaxis and placebo/no therapy (OR=0.64, 95% CI=0.09 – 4.53; p = 0.66). Post-TURP bacteriuria incidence in patients administered with antibiotic prophylaxis is lower than placebo/no therapy, but post-TURP sepsis incidence in patients administered with antibiotic prophylaxis is the same as placebo/no therapy.

Abstract : Heart failure (HF) remains a leading cause of mortality in patients with overt cardiovascular disease (CVD). New Universal Definition and Classification of HF is supposed to use biomarker strategy based on measure of circulating (mainly natriuretic peptides and high-sensitive cardiac troponins) and genetic indicators to identify patients at higher risk of HF and choose optimal strategy to diagnose and treat. Although the first-generation biomarkers (natriuretic peptides, high sensitive cardiac troponins) are widely used, the second-generation biomarkers of fibrosis and inflammation may have additional promising benefit in clear assessment of adverse cardiac remodeling and providing differentiation between several subtypes of HF. Growth differential factor-15 (GDF15) is a stress-induced multifactorial cytokine, which belong to the transforming growth factor beta superfamily. GDF15 is markedly expressed in various cells and involved in glucose and energy homoeostasis, regulation of appetite, and body weight loss. GDF15 influences tissue protection from ischemia / reperfusion, and oxidative stress damage. The aim of the narrative review is to elucidate the diagnostic and therapeutic role of GDF15 in HF. We found that GDF-15 is a promising indicator of poor clinical outcomes and predictor of HF, and it could be a powerful component of a multiple biomarker strategy in managing HF patients.

Abstract : The purpose of this study was to determine the management of the learning process during a pandemic in Islamic boarding schools including management principles such as planning, organizing and evaluating by including various factors in it in order to achieve the expected learning objectives. This is necessary considering that until now educational institutions that still carry out face-to-face learning can be said to be only Islamic boarding schools. The object of this research is Modern Pondok Daarul Hikmah Tangerang – Banten. The method used is qualitative data obtained through observations and structured interviews with the management team of Islamic boarding schools. From several observation items and interview results, it can be concluded that Islamic boarding school learning is carried out offline (face to face) through management principles with health protocols . First, learning planning still refers to educational goals and applicable Islamic boarding school values. Both learning organizations are carried out based on the structure and main tasks of each element such as teachers, students and employees. Third, from the control aspect, in this case the learning evaluation is carried out objectively and adaptively, namely adjusting several aspects to government regulations and internally applicable regulations.

Abstract : Testicular torsion is one of the most common urological emergencies in the world. Improper recognition and management of the disease could lead to irreversible damage to the testicular organ. Currently, there has not been any studies in Indonesia reporting the characteristics of testicular torsion. Therefore, we aimed to evaluate the clinical profile of testicular torsion patients in Dr. Soetomo general hospital over the past four years. This is a retrospective descriptive study evaluating testicular torsion patients admitted to the Urology ward of Dr. Soetomo General Hospital between January 2016 and February 2020. Relevant collected data included: Patient’s age, Location of torsion, pain onset, history of trauma, and management. A total of 17 patients were admitted to the hospital in the past 4 years. The highest number of cases occurred among patients aged 10 to 12 years old (47%). Most patients suffered from pain in their left testicular area (76.5%) and came to the emergency room six hours after the pain had started (82.4%). Most patients were treated with orchidectomy of the affected testis and orchidopexy of the contralateral testis due to unsalvageable testis (82.4%). Testicular torsion cases in Dr. Soetomo general hospital mostly occur among adolescence with the left side affected among the majority of cases. Most patients came after six hours, which led to irreversible damage requiring ipsilateral orchidectomy and orchidopexy of the affected contralateral side.

Abstract : Internal urethrotomy is one of the most commonly performed urethral stricture surgeries. However, the efficacy of urethrotomy is still being questioned due to its high stricture recurrence rate. Several adjunctive treatments for internal urethrotomy have been widely studied to reduce the recurrence of urethral strictures, one of which is triamcinolone. We aimed to analyze the effect of triamcinolone in reducing urethral stricture recurrence rate. A systematic search was conducted in PUBMED, Science Direct, and Google Scholar databases to identify relevant randomized controlled trials (RCTs) of triamcinolone in patients with urethral stricture undergoing urethrotomy. This review has been conducted according to the PRISMA guideline and the protocol has been registered to the PROSPERO database (CRD42020202254). Six RCTs were eligible for this study. A total of 373 urethral stricture patients were included in this review. Pooled results of the included studies showed a significant difference between the triamcinolone and control group, indicating a lower recurrence rate in the triamcinolone group (OR = 0.49 95% CI 0.31-0.77, p = 0.002). Significant difference was seen in the ointment with clean intermittent catheterization (CIC) intervention subgroup (OR = 0.47 CI 95% 0.26-0.82, p=0.009), but not the submucosal injection subgroup (p>0.05). The maximum urinary flow rate (Qmax) was similar between the treatment and control groups (p>0.05) during the sixth- and twelfth-month follow-
