Real-time magnetic resonance-guided high-intensity focused ultrasound focal therapy for localised prostate cancer: preliminary experience.
Five patients with unifocal, biopsy-proven prostate cancer (PCa) evident on multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) were treated with magnetic resonance-guided focused ultrasound (MRgFUS) ablation before radical prostatectomy (RP), and histopathology report showed extensive coagulative necrosis, with no residual tumour in the ablated area.

Biparametric versus Multiparametric MRI with Non-endorectal Coil at 3T in the Detection and Localization of Prostate Cancer.
AIM To assess the sensitivity of biparametric magnetic resonance imaging (bpMRI) with non-endorectal coil in the detection and localization of index (dominant) and non-index lesions in patientsExpand
Role of 5-aminolevulinic acid in the diagnosis and treatment of superficial bladder cancer: improvement in diagnostic sensitivity.
5-ALA could be routinely used in the diagnosis of superficial bladder tumors, as it was shown to improve the diagnostic sensitivity for carcinoma in situ and to reduce the risk of recurrence related to missed cancerous lesions or incomplete TURB. Expand
Superficial Bladder Tumors in Patients under 40 Years of Age: Clinical, Prognostic and Cytogenetic Aspects
Preliminary results of a study using fluorescent in situ hybridization with probes for the centromere of chromosomes 7 and 17 showed a high incidence of aneusomy with regard to these chromosomes and a genetic difference between superficial tumors in the young and in adults. Expand
A rare case of serous papillary cystadenocarcinoma of the testis.
The serous papillary cystadenocarcinoma is a rare testicular neoplasm, which depending on the histological features can behave more or less aggressive, thus leading to a not always predictableExpand
Allium stent for treatment of ureteral stenosis.
Self-expanding allium ureteral stent represents an effective treatment of ureTERal stenosis in patients not suitable for surgery, and a complete correction of the stenotic lesion was obtained. Expand
Bacillus Calmette-Guérin unresponsiveness in non-muscle-invasive bladder cancer patients: what the urologists should know.
Radical cystectomy (RC) should be considered as the preferred option in patients who experience a BCG-failure, especially in cases of Ta or T1 high grade recurrence which occurred within 3 months of start-date of induction or in early-intermediate BCG relapsing tumors or in case of recurrence after ≥1 maintenance course with a maintenance exposure ≤6 months.

The incidence of post-operative urinary tract infection in patients with ureteric stents.
It was concluded that ureteric stenting is a safe procedure with a low rate of infection provided that antibiotic cover is given. Expand
Abnormalities of colonic mucin secretion and metabolic changes after internal urinary diversion for bladder exstrophy. A prospective study.
The histochemical and/or lectin binding changes which were found in the majority of patients were identical to those observed in premalignant and malignant conditions of the colon, stressing the need for regular endoscopic, histological and metabolic follow-up in these patients and for life-long treatment with bicarbonate or citrate.

Malignant priapism due to penile metastases: Case series and literature review.
One case of malignant priapism originated from prostate cancer, and two from urothelial carcinoma of the bladder are presented, with a relief of the pain following the treatment, with an improvement of their quality of life, even though it was only temporary as a palliative. Expand
