    Predicting urinary stone composition

    Visceral fat was associated with uric acid stone, suggesting that visceral fat has more important role in uric acid stone formation than total fat, and has a better predictive value than BMI or urinary pH to classify the types of stone.

    Post-prostatectomy PSA test to determine disease risk

    Early prostate-specific antigen (PSA) measurements following radical prostatectomy should aid risk stratification in men with positive surgical margins, and patients not likely to experience subsequent disease progression can be spared the toxicity of immediate adjuvant radiotherapy and thus, overtreatment.

BMC Urology is an open access, peer-reviewed journal that considers articles on all aspects of the prevention, diagnosis and management of urological disorders, as well as related molecular genetics, pathophysiology, and epidemiology.

BMC Urology is part of the BMC series which publishes subject-specific journals focused on the needs of individual research communities across all areas of biology and medicine. We offer an efficient, fair and friendly peer review service, and are committed to publishing all sound science, provided that there is some advance in knowledge presented by the work.

BMC series - open, inclusive and trusted.

Section Editor Profile

Cosimo De Nunzio

Cosimo De Nunzio, MD, PhD, is Consultant Urologist and contract Professor at the Department of Urology, Ospedale Sant'Andrea, University "La Sapienza", Roma, Italy. His research focus is prostatic disorders with a particular interest in voiding dysfunction, Benign prostatic Hyperplasia and prostate cancer diagnosis and management.

"I am pleased to be involved with BMC Urology first as a reviewer and now as Section Editor for Voiding Dysfunction. BMC Urology is an open access journal publishing original peer-reviewed articles, currently 10th on the SCImago Journal & Country Rank table and with and increasing number of manuscripts published in the last 4 years. When I joined BMC Urology, I have been particularly impressed by the excellent group of Section and Associate Editors involved in the Editorial Board and notwithstanding their young age, they are extremely expert in their field of interest. The journal's excellent editorial staff and the rapidity of the peer review process is another crucial quality of this journal. Moreover, I strongly support the open access platform used by BMC Urology which makes the specialized knowledge of urology more widely available to the scientific community at large, independently of the institutional affiliation or economic resources."
