The aim of our current study was to demonstrate the efficacy and safety of vaporesection using a 120-W Tm:YAG laser (Revolix Duo) in patients with BPH receiving systemic anticoagulation or antiplatelet therapy. Between April 2010 and November 2011, a total of 76 patients using oral antiplatelet or anticoagulant (OA) agents affected by LUTS for BPH were(More)
Gleason score has been identified as an important variable to predict disease extent and biologic behaviour of prostate cancer. However, the correlation between Gleason score of needle biopsy and surgical specimen is often poor. We studied 72 patients who underwent needle biopsy and radical prostatectomy to correlate Gleason score with PSA, clinical and(More)
Power Doppler ultrasound (US) with time-intensity curves was used to study renal graft function both in the absence of disease and with complications (acute tubular necrosis and chronic rejection) in an attempt to identify pathognomonic patterns. Time-intensity curves allow representation of the kidneys’ wash-in and wash-out phases after intravenous(More)
To evaluate the association between preoperative detrusor underactivity (DU) and symptomatic bladder neck contracture (BNC) in patients undergoing radical retropubic prostatectomy (RRP), in order to identify a possible new risk factor in the etiopathogenic mechanisms of BNC after RRP. A total of 100 prostate cancer patients underwent RRP after preoperative(More)
