PURPOSE The management of lower pole kidney stones is controversial. We examined whether lower pole caliceal anatomy could predict the success of extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy of primary lower pole kidney stones 20 mm. or less. MATERIALS AND METHODS From December 1997 to June 2001, 246 adults with a single, 20 mm. or less radiopaque lower pole(More)
Since the findings of Yü and Gutman [1], the hyperuricosuric calcium stone former is a unique clinical entity. While an impressive number of clinical and epidemiologic studies implicate hyperuricosuria in calcium stone formation, the exact physicochemical mechanism by which uric acid affects calcium oxalate crystallization has not been proven.

PURPOSE We compared the impact of intravenous sedation versus general anesthesia on the efficacy of extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy. MATERIALS AND METHODS From November 1997 to May 1998, 295 patients with a single renal or upper ureteral radioopaque stone of less than 2 cm. were treated with the Doli 50 lithotriptor (Dornier Medical Systems,(More)
PURPOSE We evaluated the efficacy of 0.05% betamethasone cream for the treatment of pre-pubertal labial adhesions. METHODS We retrospectively reviewed the records of 19 children with labial adhesions who were treated with betamethasone cream from 6/2001 to 3/2003. Children were treated with 1 to 3 courses of twice-daily 0.05% betamethasone cream for 4 to(More)
