PURPOSE To evaluate the efficacy of autologous single-donor fibrin glue after tubeless percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL). MATERIALS AND METHODS Forty-three patients were planned for tubeless PCNL in a prospective cohort study and randomized in two groups with or without using fibrin glue. Randomization method was based on the computer-generated random(More)
PURPOSE Percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) has been the preferred procedure for the removal of large renal stones in Iran since 1990. Recently, we encountered a series of devastating neurologic complications during PCNL, including paraplegia and hemiplegia. There are several reports of neurologic complications following PCNL owing to paradoxical air(More)
PURPOSE The standard treatment for a duplex kidney with poorly functioning upper pole moiety is ipsilateral upper pole heminephrectomy. This procedure is usually performed by open surgery, but with recent developments in techniques of uro-laparoscopy, it can be done with it, safely. In this study we evaluated the results and safety of laparoscopic(More)
Aim. Sonography has been brought in percutaneous nephrolithotripsy (PCNL) as an adjunct to or substitute for X-ray to restrict radiation exposure. This study was designed to investigate the possible predictors for the success of the solo sonographically guided PCNL. Methods. 148 consecutive cases were prospectively enrolled. All steps of PCNL were performed(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Major vascular injury is the most devastating complication of laparoscopy, occurring most commonly during the laparoscopic entry phase. Our goal is to report our experience with major vascular injury during laparoscopic entry with closed- and open-access techniques in urologic procedures. METHODS All 5347 patients who underwent(More)
INTRODUCTION Acute tubular necrosis (ATN) is a challenging problem that still requires to be studied in animal models. Our aim was to prepare an established experimental model of inducing reversible ATN in rats by determining the optimum duration of ischemia induction to the kidney. MATERIALS AND METHODS Twenty-four hour after nephrectomy of the right(More)
