PURPOSE To evaluate the efficacy of transvesical obturator nerve block (ONB) in the prevention of obturator nerve reflex and leg jerking during transurethral resection of bladder tumors (TURBT). PATIENTS AND METHODS A total of 60 patients were studied, in whom the transurethral resection of tumors on the posterolateral bladder wall were performed under(More)
PURPOSE To analyze the role of negative versus positive immunoexpression of E-cadherin in recurrence rate of low-grade bladder tumors. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 180 patients with unifocal, superficial, low-grade, papillary transitional cell carcinoma of the bladder were included in this study. The E-cadherin expression was evaluated using(More)
INTRODUCTION Chronic liver disease resulting from hepatitis B virus (HBV) and hepatitis C virus (HCV) infections is still a major concern in kidney recipients. It is unclear whether HCV antibody status and markers of HBV infection are associated with renal dysfunction. Thus, we designed a study to investigate the incidence of HBV and HCV infection after(More)
PURPOSE To compare blind and nerve stimulation guided transurethral obturator nerve block (ONB) in transurethral resection of bladder tumor (TURBT) to prevent obturator reflex. PATIENTS AND METHODS One hundred and twelve patients with lateral bladder wall tumors and at high risk for general anesthesia were categorized randomly in three groups. In the(More)
To evaluate the efficacy of sildenafil in the treatment of neurogenic erectile dysfunction (ED) secondary to upper motor neuron (UMN) and lower motor neuron (LMN) spinal cord injury (SCI). After taking consents 105 patients suffering from ED were enrolled in this prospective study. Seventy-two patients had signs and symptoms of UMN and 33 patients had signs(More)
Ion-exchange adsorbers are widely used for radioisotope separation, as well as for the removal of hazardous fission products from aqueous waste prior to discharge to the environment. Inorganic exchangers are of particular interest because of their resistance to radiolytic damage and selectivity for specific fission products. Composite inorganic-organic(More)
PURPOSE Cystoscopy is one of the most common urologic procedures. The aim of this study is to investigate the combined effect of intraurethral lidocaine gel and intraglandular injection of lidocaine 2% on pain during and after cystoscopy. Materials & Methods: In this double-blind, parallel group randomized clinical trial, 156 patients referred for(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the efficacy of long-acting-release octreotide (trade name Sandostatin) on decreasing mucus secretion, thus reducing catheter obstruction after radical cystectomy and orthotopic reconstruction. PATIENTS AND METHODS In this double-blind, placebo-controlled study, we treated 73 cases of radical cystectomy between the years 2008 and 2014;(More)
PURPOSE Myocardial perfusion and functional information during the same study is now feasible. A new assessment of regional ejection fraction at rest and peak exercise by first-pass radionuclide angiography using a "normal" database file has been developed. OBJECTIVE This study was performed to assess the relation between this new method of quantitative(More)
