Estrogen receptors (ERs) in the prostate and prostatic urethra were examined in 33 men with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and in 11 with prostate cancer (PC). The Abbot monoclonal ER-ICA assay was used for immunohistochemical investigation. In the BPH group, ERs were revealed in the prostatic stroma in eight cases and in the glandular epithelium in(More)
The effect of cardiopulmonary bypass on the relationship between brain glucose consumption and regional blood flow is unknown. We measured this relationship in pigs subjected to 3 hours of pulsatile or nonpulsatile cardiopulmonary bypass at normothermia and compared the results to the relationship established in a control group of pigs. A total of 10(More)
The prevalence of residual urine in elderly people in the community is poorly documented. The aim of the present study was to assess the prevalence and range of residual urine in elderly people in the community. As part of a major epidemiologic study (The Glostrup Population Study), 140 75-year-old men and women were included in this study (92 men, 48(More)
The influence of castration on estrogen receptor (ER) expression in the male rabbit prostate and urethra, was investigated immunohistochemically and biochemically in 18 mature male, rabbits 14 days after bilateral orchiectomy, and in 15 controls. Immunohistochemical scores of ER were increased significantly in the prostatic stroma and the urethral submucosa(More)
A controlled study of the effect of treatment of recurrent urethral stricture by internal urethrotomy followed by clean intermittent self-catheterization for 3 months is reported. There were 28 men (median age 70 years, range 18 to 75) allocated to internal urethrotomy and clean intermittent self-catheterization for 3 months (treatment group) and 33 (median(More)
The distribution and quantity of estrogen receptors (ERs) in the human male bladder, prostatic urethra and the prostate were studied in eight males with recurrent papillomas of the bladder or monosymptomatic hematuria (median age 61 years), 14 men undergoing transurethral resection due to benign prostatic hyperplasia (median age 70 years), and nine men(More)
Nitroglycerin plasters were applied to the penis in 10 impotent men and the erectile effect assessed. During laboratory testing all patients achieved an erectile response. Self-administration of nitroglycerin patches restored potency in 4 patients and was preferred to papaverine auto-injection by 3. Headache was a common side effect during initial(More)
In pigs subjected to pulsatile or nonpulsatile cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) at normothermia for 3 hours, evaluation was made of water content in brain tissue (specific gravity measurements), blood-brain permeability to serum proteins (immunocytochemical demonstration of extravasated proteins, using peroxidase-antiperoxidase technique) and histopathology(More)
Pre- and postjunctional effects of castration were investigated in isolated corpus cavernosum (CC) and prostatic and preprostatic urethral preparations obtained from rabbits that had been castrated surgically 14 days before investigation. Preparations obtained from untreated animals were used as controls. Castration did not change the relaxing effects of(More)
