Single-nucleotide polymorphisms located in the microRNA biogenesis pathway could alter the risk for developing prostate cancer. The present study was intended to identify common genetic variants responsible for prostate cancer susceptibility in the GEMIN4 gene. The high-resolution melting method was used to genotype seven polymorphisms (rs7813, rs4968104,(More)
The Arg194Trp polymorphism in the X-ray repair cross-complementing group 1 (XRCC1) gene has been proved to be in association with cancer risk in Chinese Mainland population, but a large number of studies have reported inconclusive results. A more comprehensive and precise estimation of the relationship is needed to clear the way towards future studies.(More)
The use of antibiotic prophylaxis in hernia repair is still under debate. The aim of this meta-analysis was to assess the effect of antibiotic prophylaxis in patients undergoing open mesh repair of inguinal hernia with respect to incidence of postoperative surgical site infection (SSI). A literature search was conducted in databases of MEDLINE, EMBASE, and(More)
BACKGROUND Controversy remains on the superiority of combination therapy over monotherapy on ureteral stent-related symptoms (SRSs). We tend to explore if there is a necessity of combination therapy. METHODS One hundred cases of unilateral upper urinary tract calculi with stent insertion (pre and post flexible ureteroscopy) were randomized into 4 groups,(More)
BACKGROUND Intraductal carcinoma of prostate (IDC-P) is always underestimated pathological pattern in prostate cancer and its role is still unclear in castration resistant prostate cancer (CRPC). This study was conducted to investigate the presence and the roles of IDC-P in patients with metastatic CRPC. METHODS 45 patients with initially diagnosed(More)
microRNAs (miRNA) silence target genes through Watson-Crick based binding to the 3'untranslated regions (3'UTR). Thus, polymorphisms in the miRNA-binding sites may disrupt this process and play a potential role in cancer pathogenesis. Integrins have been implicated in the genesis and development of many tumors. This study was designed to evaluate the(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the necessity for stenting after ureteroscopic lithotripsy. We performed a systematic research of Medline, Embase, Cochrane central registration for RCTs concerning the comparison between stented and non-stented post-ureteroscopic procedures for stone removal and reference lists of the included study were also screened.(More)
Whether midurethral sling (MUS) procedures are as effective in obese women as they are in women of normal weight is still a matter of controversy. The objective of this study was to determine if body mass index (BMI) influences the outcome of MUS procedures for stress urinary incontinence (SUI). We searched electronic databases including EMBASE, MEDLINE,(More)
OBJECTIVE Therapy for anterior combined with posterior urethral stricture is difficult and controversial. This study aims to introduce a standard process for managing anterior combined with posterior urethral stricture. PATIENTS AND METHODS 19 patients with anterior combined with posterior urethral stricture were treated following our standard process.(More)
OBJECTIVES Capsular invasion is frequently detected in localized renal cell carcinoma (RCCs) samples. Whether patients with localized RCCs and capsular invasion will suffer poorer clinical outcome than those without this pathologic finding is still at issue. MATERIALS AND METHODS We performed a systematic literature research of Central, Medline, Embase,(More)
