Comment: Stepwise sexual development of adolescents: the Dutch approach to sexuality education
Sanderijn van der Doef & Jo Reinders

Published online: 31 January 2018
p133 | doi:10.1038/nrurol.2018.3

Dutch adolescents develop their sexuality in a stepwise manner, gradually progressing from first kiss to first sexual intercourse. Adolescents who follow a stepwise sexual development are more confident and engage in less risky sexual behaviour than those who do not. Thus, the stepwise 'sexual career' is an excellent model for guiding development of age-appropriate sex education.

Urothelial cancer: Optimizing and integrating cisplatin-based chemotherapy across the disease spectrum
Jay D. Raman

Published online: 16 January 2018
p139 | doi:10.1038/nrurol.2017.213

Data suggest that chemotherapy is a sound treatment option for urothelial cancer across the disease spectrum. However, despite a twofold increase in survival in patients receiving chemotherapy, it does not seem to be offered to all patients.

Prostate cancer: A valuable tool for prediction of repeat biopsy pathology
Pierre Karakiewicz & Sebastiano Nazzani

Published online: 28 December 2017
p140 | doi:10.1038/nrurol.2017.216

Multiparametric MRI (mpMRI) findings are not always accurate in patients with a previous negative prostate biopsy. Truong et al. have developed a nomogram to identify patients with previous negative prostate biopsy who are at elevated risk of harbouring benign histology and should undergo repeat biopsy.

Bladder biomechanics and the use of scaffolds for regenerative medicine in the urinary bladder
Fatemeh Ajalloueian et al.

Published online: 13 February 2018
p155 | doi:10.1038/nrurol.2018.5

Clinical conditions that cause poor bladder compliance, reduced capacity, and incontinence can require bladder augmentation or use of regenerative techniques and scaffolds. Replicating an organ that is under frequent mechanical loading and unloading needs particular attention to its biomechanical requirements. In this Review, the authors describe the biomechanics of the bladder and discuss how different scaffolds and techniques can be assessed to determine the best possible approach to bladder augmentation.

Labiaplasty: motivation, techniques, and ethics
Müjde Özer, Indiana Mortimore, Elise P. Jansma & Margriet G. Mullender

Published online: 06 February 2018
p175 | doi:10.1038/nrurol.2018.1

Labiaplasty is attracting increasing attention in the media and in online forums. How to manage a request for this surgery is controversial, and the indications for and outcomes of labiaplasty have not yet been systematically assessed. In this Review, Ozer and colleagues discuss our current knowledge of this surgery.

HSD3B1 status as a biomarker of androgen deprivation resistance and implications for prostate cancer
Daniel Hettel & Nima Sharifi

Published online: 12 December 2017
p191 | doi:10.1038/nrurol.2017.201

Hettel and Sharifi discuss how germline HSD3B1 1245A>C variant status influences outcomes of men with prostate cancer receiving androgen deprivation therapy, indicating its utility as a predictive biomarker. Metabolic effects of variant HSD3B1 status highlight a potential requirement to modify current treatment frameworks.
