Few studies have been conducted on the serial evaluation of predictors for recovery of urinary continence (RC) after radical prostatectomy (RP) among same cohort. We developed and validated nomograms to predict immediate (≤1), early (≤3), and late (≤12 months) RC from a contemporary series and compared each nomogram with regard to the significance of(More)
OBJECTIVES Currently, no standardized method is available to predict success rate after percutaneous nephrolithotomy. We devised and validated the Seoul National University Renal Stone Complexity (S-ReSC) scoring system for predicting the stone-free rate after single-tract percutaneous nephrolithotomy (sPCNL). PATIENTS AND METHODS The data of 155(More)
BACKGROUND The presenting features and clinical course of biomass smoke induced bronchial anthracofibrosis (BAF) are not well known. PATIENTS AND METHODS 333 patients who had a history of long-term exposure to biomass smoke, having BAF confirmed by a bronchoscopy from January 1998 to December 2004, were included in this study. The clinical features,(More)
UNLABELLED What's known on the subject? and what does the study add?: As most urologist known, obesity significantly lowers serum PSA levels. So there is some concern about delayed diagnosis of prostate cancer in obese men. In the present study, we found that the accuracy level of PSA for detecting prostate cancer was not significantly different between(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate whether the risk of prostate cancer was different according to the pattern of fluctuation in prostate-specific antigen (PSA) levels in patients undergoing repeat transrectal ultrasound-guided prostate biopsy (TRUS-Bx). METHODS From March 2003 to December 2012, 492 patients underwent repeat TRUS-Bx. The patients were stratified into 3(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate the efficacy of targeted therapy after complete resection of metastatic lesions in patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma. METHODS We retrospectively reviewed the medical records of 53 patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma who underwent complete surgical resection of metastatic lesions between January 2006 and(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the effects of sunitinib treatment on blood glucose levels in patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma. METHODS We reviewed the records of 48 patients who received sunitinib treatment for metastatic renal cell carcinoma between April 2007 and December 2010 at our institution. Patients' data including diabetic status, diabetes(More)
BACKGROUND The six-minute walk test has been widely used in people with chronic cardiopulmonary disorders as an outcome assessment with regards to therapeutic or prognostic determinants. This study was undertaken to determine the six-minute walk distance (6MWD) in a sample of healthy Koreans and to create a reference equation. We also compared the 6MWD of(More)
PURPOSE To identify the prevalence and clinical features of detrusor underactivity (DU) in elderly men and women presenting with lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS). MATERIALS AND METHODS We reviewed 1,179 patients aged over 65 years who had undergone a urodynamic study for LUTS with no neurological or anatomical conditions. DU was defined as a bladder(More)
UNLABELLED What's known on the subject? and What does the study add? Previously, it has been reported that PSA may not perform as accurately as PSA density (PSAD) in predicting outcomes after radical prostatectomy among patients with Gleason score 6 prostate cancer. However, there have been few studies comparing the usefulness of PSA and PSAD in predicting(More)
