OBJECTIVES Penile augmentation surgery is a highly controversial issue due to the low level of standardisation of surgical techniques. The aim of the study is to illustrate a new technique to solve the problem of enlarging the penis by means of additive surgery on the albuginea of the corpora cavernosa, guaranteeing a real increase in size of the erect(More)
Perineal floor training and perineal biofeedback allow to reach a good improvement of clinical discomfort in the treatment of stress and urge urinary incontinence. The aim of this study is the real evaluation of the benefit due to a 6 week perineal biofeedback and pelvic floor training (PFT) versus PFT alone. 8 female patients have been treated with a 6(More)
PURPOSE We describe a select group of asymptomatic patients with fragments and dust 3 months after extracorporeal treatment, who were followed to evaluate the long-term outcome and therapeutic implications. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 129 patients with dust and residual fragments (less than 4 mm.) at 3 months was re-examined at 12 months, and 95 were(More)
From May 1991 to December 1996, 326 patients with advanced metastatic breast cancer were enrolled in a multicentre, randomised, phase III clinical trial with four arms. Patients were randomised to receive chemotherapy according to the FEC regimen (5-fluorouracil (5-FU) 500 mg/m2, epidoxorubicin (EPI) 75 mg/m2 and cyclophosphamide (CFA) 500 mg/m2,(More)
INTRODUCTION Most surgical therapies used to date for Peyronie's disease produce good results but cause penis retraction. The authors propose a personal surgical technique that makes use of an intracavernous cylinder, soft but axially rigid in consistency, in association with tunical relaxing incisions and saphenous vein grafting, in this exact sequence.

In male patients routine examination for urethral disease includes retrograde and anterograde urethrography and urethroscopy. In the patients underwent radical cystectomy, detection of cancerous cells in the urethral washing suggest cancer relapse. Nowadays we can achieve a sonographic study of the anterior male urethra, using a superficial high frequency(More)
A total of 64 treatments by the Dornier HM3 lithotriptor was performed on 52 solitary kidneys with stones. A slight increase but no significant variations in serum creatinine was noted in 15 patients without obstruction just after treatment (p greater than 0.05). No significant increases in serum creatinine were found even at the short-term, mid-term and(More)
A potential complication of prostatic adenomectomy and TURP is urinary incontinence. The incidence of this problem ranges from 0.1 to 1%. we reviewed our experience with 15 patients who were incontinent between 10 to 24 months after prostatectomy. We treated these patients with bladder training. At first, patients were evaluated for the type and extent of(More)
The treatment of ureteral stones has undergone a radical change in the last 15 years. First, the increased use of endoscopic procedures and then the introduction of extracorporeal lithotripsy relegated traditional surgery to a marginal role for this type of disorder. The best available treatment modality for ureteral lithiasis, particularly distal ureteral(More)
