PURPOSE To compare the quality of life (QoL) of renal cancer patients following laparoscopic and open radical nephrectomy. MATERIALS AND METHODS Seventy-two (64.9%) patients who were treated with open radical nephrectomy (ORN group) and 39 (35.1%) patients who were treated with laparoscopic radical nephrectomy (LRN group) were included in this study. QoL(More)
PURPOSE We analyzed factors that might affect outcome in terms of success and incidence of complications in children up to 17 years after undergoing percutaneous nephrolithotomy. MATERIALS AND METHODS The data of 346 renal units (294 patients) were analyzed in terms of postoperative outcome. Factors investigated that might affect outcome were patient(More)
UNLABELLED The present study was designed to determine the incidence and predictive factors of benign renal lesions in 450 patients who underwent surgical removal of solitary renal masses <7 cm in diameter. Of the 450 renal masses, 88 (19.9%) were benign lesions. Female sex, nephron-sparing surgery, surgery between 1990 and 1996, cystic components on(More)
BACKGROUND This study aimed to determine the prognostic and risk factors for bladder and systemic recurrence after nephroureterectomy (NU) in patients with upper urinary tract (UUT) transitional cell carcinoma (TCC). PATIENTS AND METHODS Data from 101 patients with nonmetastatic UUT TCC who underwent NU between 1987 and 2009 were retrospectively(More)
INTRODUCTION Among the interventional treatment modalities for vesicoureteral reflux (VUR), endoscopic subureteric injection seems to be the least invasive method with acceptable outcomes when applied in appropriate patients. OBJECTIVE The aim of the presented study is to investigate the parameters which may affect the outcomes of endoscopic injection and(More)
Ureteritis cystica (UC) is a benign condition. Although it can often be diagnosed with imaging techniques, we report a case of a child for whom we planned nephrectomy and ureteral augmentation cystoplasty, but abandoned the cystoplasty due to extensive UC in the ureter.
PURPOSE We evaluate the histopathological features of uncorrected undescended testis presenting at a late postpubertal age. MATERIALS AND METHODS The study included 51 men (age 20 to 24 years) diagnosed with inguinal unilateral undescended testis found on routine examination for military recruits. None was evaluated or treated for undescended testis(More)
INTRODUCTION Uroflowmetry (UF) alone is often inadequate or unreliable to diagnose lower urinary tract dysfunction (LUTD). Therefore, other non-invasive tests, such as ultrasound (US), post-voiding residual volume (PVR) assessment and symptom scales, are used as well for objective definition of the problem. OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to(More)
