INTRODUCTION Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death among men in developed countries. Estrogen receptor-alpha (ER-α), vitamin D receptor (VDR), and the calcium-sensing receptor (CaSR), partly through their effects on calcium levels are implicated in the proliferation and carcinogenesis in the prostate gland. VDR, ER-α and CaSR genes(More)
AIMS During this prospective study we analyzed the effects of radical retropubic prostatectomy (RRP) on bladder and sphincter function by comparing preoperative and postoperative urodynamic data. The aim of the study was to determine the reason for urinary incontinence after RRP and explain why one group of patients will be immediately continent after(More)
PURPOSE The long-term results of the management in adulthood of congenital curvature of the penis (ventral, lateral and dorsal) without hypospadias using 3 different techniques are carefully evaluated based on our experience. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 116 patients were operated on for congenital curvature of the penis without hypospadias in(More)
The authors report on their first experiences with the UroVysion fluorescencein situ hybridization (FISH) kit developed for the detection of bladder cancer. This new non-invasive diagnostic application of the FISH technique in the field of urology was elaborated to replace cystoscopy. The special urine examination method detects genetic alterations of the(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the patterns of expression of the junctional proteins beta-catenin and claudins in different prognostic groups of patients with prostatic cancer, to determine their value as prognostic markers. PATIENTS AND METHODS We evaluated the samples of 30 patients who had a radical prostatectomy for organ-confined cancer (pT2N0M0), men with(More)
Following patients after prostatectomy can be expensive and stressful, therefore, a novel and reliable approach to improve stratification is needed both at diagnosis of PCa and following its treatment. We evaluate the association of both ERG and claudin-4, claudin-5, and beta-catenin expression in tumor tissues of patients with organ-confined and advanced(More)
To perform a cost of illness study in lower urinary tract symptoms associated with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) in Hungary. A multicentre, cross-sectional survey was carried out in 2014. BPH patients who had never undergone prostate surgery were recruited to the study. EQ-5D and the International Prostate Symptom Score (IPSS) were used to evaluate(More)
The accumulation of genetic alterations plays a role in the evolution of bladder cancer. These changes can be detected in the urine by DNA analysis of the cells exfoliated from the bladder wall enabling us to detect bladder cancer. The urine supernatant, besides the urine sediment, contains DNA, however in a much smaller amount. The origin of DNA in these(More)
INTRODUCTION Our aim was to identify the independent risk factors associated with urinary incontinence after radical retropubic prostatectomy (RRP). MATERIALS AND METHODS Using univariate and multivariate analyses, we examined several pre- and perioperative factors. One hundred and sixty-six patients were divided into three groups: patients who were(More)
Spondylodiscitis after prostate biopsy is a very rare complication. Only two cases have been published in the literature.A transrectal prostate biopsy was performed in a 59-year-old man. Postoperatively a septic condition with fever and back pain developed. The correct diagnosis was delayed because of "acute abdomen" and pneumonia. The spondylodiscitis with(More)
