UNLABELLED Authors from Iran compare various outcomes between laparoscopic and open donor nephrectomy in kidney transplantation; they carried out a large comparative trial, and found that laparoscopic donor nephrectomy gave better donor satisfaction and morbidity, with equivalent graft outcome. OBJECTIVE To compare the graft survival, donor and recipient(More)
OBJECTIVES To compare the outcome and complications of urinary diversion using ileum, with and without bowel preparation. Recent studies have questioned the necessity of bowel preparation, especially for urinary diversion when ileum is used. METHODS In this clinical trial, 30 candidates for urinary diversion underwent a 3-day standard bowel preparation(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Multiple procedures have been introduced for the management of urinary stones in the upper ureter. In this randomized clinical trial, we compared three surgical options in this regard. PATIENTS AND METHODS From September 2004 to May 2006, we enrolled in the study 150 patients with upper ureteral stones who were referred to our(More)
BACKGROUND The ectopic expression of receptor tyrosine kinase Ror1 has been reported in patients with hematological malignancies such as chronic lymphocytic leukemia and acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Here we report, for the first time, expression of ROR1 gene in both tumor tissues and peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) from patients with renal cancer(More)
Several risk factors have been suggested for transitional cell carcinoma (TCC) of the bladder (BC). Since it seems that some factors have more prominent role over the others in our region, we conducted the present case-control study with 692 bladder cancer (BC) patients versus 692 healthy controls (262 women versus 1,122 men in total) matched on the basis(More)
This study was designed to estimate the burden of urologic diseases in the Islamic Republic of Iran as a practical method for defining public health priorities. Using World Health Organization guidelines for national burden of disease studies, 6 steps were performed: selecting diseases to include; dynamic modelling of diseases; gathering data about urologic(More)
PURPOSE A randomized clinical trial was designed to compare the efficacy, success rate and surgical complications of percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) and laparoscopic pyelolithotomy (LP). MATERIALS AND METHODS Sixty patients with renal pelvic stones larger than 2 cm were randomly divided into two groups of LP and PCNL. All patients were followed up to(More)
OBJECTIVE We present our experience with percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) for management of large renal calculi in children less than 5 years old, and determine its safety and efficacy when using an adult-size device. PATIENTS AND METHODS Twenty patients younger than 5 years old underwent PCNL between August 2003 and July 2008. After retrograde(More)
PURPOSE Achieving access to the pyelocaliceal system in percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) is routinely performed using fluoroscopic guidance. We compared ultrasonography-guided access for PCNL with conventional fluoroscopy-guided access. PATIENTS AND METHODS In a clinical trial, 100 patients with no abnormality of the upper urinary tract were selected(More)
The aim of this study is to investigate the serum levels of parathyroid hormone (PTH), calcitonin, 1,25 (OH)2 vitamin D3, estradiol and testosterone in male patients with active renal calcium stone disease compared with controls and investigate their relationship with serum/urinary biochemistry. Male active renal calcium stone formers (ASF) were enrolled(More)
