A survey gauging how prostate cancer patients are managed with active surveillance (AS) has revealed marked heterogeneity in the practice of AS across UK cancer networks, prompting the need for further discussion so that AS can become a mainstream therapeutic strategy.
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.

Section Editor Profile
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."
