Single layered small intestinal submucosa in the repair of severe chordee and complicated hypospadias.
PURPOSE Severe ventral chordee often accompanies proximal hypospadias. We describe our experience with single layered small intestinal submucosa (SIS), a commercially available, acellular, collagenExpand

Prevention of renal fibrosis by spironolactone in mice with complete unilateral ureteral obstruction.
PURPOSE Recent data suggest that aldosterone directly mediates cardiac fibrosis and hypertensive nephrosclerosis. We conducted experiments to determine whether administration of spironolactone, aExpand

The efficacy and safety of synchronous bilateral extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy.
PURPOSE Bilateral renal calculi have traditionally been managed by staged extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWLdagger) due to concern about bilateral obstruction. We evaluated the safety andExpand

Results of 265 consecutive proximal hypospadias repairs using the Thiersch-Duplay principle.
PURPOSE We review the evolution of the concept of tubularization of the urethral plate and our results in the repair of proximal hypospadias. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 281 children born withExpand

Modified cecal flap neoappendix for the Malone antegrade continence enema procedure: a novel technique.
PURPOSE We report our experience with the creation of a tubularized cecal flap to construct a neoappendix. This flap effectively serves as an alternative means of creating a conduit for antegradeExpand
