METHODS Since 1973, 118 patients have undergone nephron-sparing surgery for renal cell carcinoma on an elective basis at our institutions. The vast majority of these tumors were(More)
During a 4-year period 9 cases of severe recurrent cystine stones and cystinuria were treated with mercaptopropionylglycine. The oral long-term administration revealed the high effectiveness of the drug and resulted in no further stone formation.

Instillation treatment was performed twice daily to 32 male patients with symptomatic NGU. To evaluate the therapeutic outcome, a smear was taken from the(More)

The danger of perforation using electrolithotripsy is high whereas bladder wall perforations never were caused by ultrasound using the usual amplitudes and frequencies. An(More)
