PURPOSE We retrospectively reviewed the charts of patients with renal artery pseudoaneurysms (RAPs) to document their clinical presentation, surgical background, and outcome. MATERIALS AND METHODS In all, 7 of the 1965 patients who underwent percutaneous stone surgery and 3 of the 25 patients who underwent laparoscopic nephron-sparing surgery had a(More)
We investigated the association of prostate cancer (PCa) and benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) with genetic polymorphisms in prostate-specific antigen (PSA) (-158 G/A) and 17-hydroxylase (CYP17) (-34 T/C) genes in a Turkish population. In this study, we investigated the distribution of these polymorphisms in 148 PCa patients, 136 BPH patients, and 102(More)
PURPOSE We assessed factors affecting complication rates of percutaneous nephrolithotomy in children. MATERIALS AND METHODS We retrospectively evaluated data on 1,205 renal units in 1,157 children treated with percutaneous nephrolithotomy at 16 Turkish centers between 1991 and 2012. Of the patients 28.3% had a history of urolithiasis. Complications were(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the efficacy between combined spinal-epidural block and general anesthesia in patients undergoing percutaneous nephrolithotripsy (PNL). METHODS A total of 180 patients undergoing PNL were randomly allocated to receive spinal-epidural anesthesia plus intravenous patient-controlled anesthesia with tramadol or general anesthesia(More)
OBJECTIVES To compare the stone-free rate and complications between horseshoe and normal kidneys. METHODS Between December 1997 and June 2008, a total of 2401 patients with 2618 renal units underwent percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL). During this period, we retrospectively reviewed the data of 46 patients with 50 (1.9%) renal units with horseshoe(More)
PURPOSE To compare the quality of life (QoL) of renal cancer patients following laparoscopic and open radical nephrectomy. MATERIALS AND METHODS Seventy-two (64.9%) patients who were treated with open radical nephrectomy (ORN group) and 39 (35.1%) patients who were treated with laparoscopic radical nephrectomy (LRN group) were included in this study. QoL(More)
Ectopic ureter in a duplicated system in men is rare and rarely causes bilateral obstructive symptoms. The tendency of the ureter to dilate more than the caliceal system is unique to neonates and makes upper urinary diversions more challenging. However, alternative percutaneous diversions other than nephrostomy might be beared in mind in such cases with(More)
Urolithiasis is a multifactorial disease, the onset and severity of which is influenced by both genetic and environmental factors. This study represents an investigation of the role of vitamin D receptor (VDR) gene polymorphisms (ApaI, BsmI, and TaqI) and combined genotypes in urolithiasis in a Turkish population. We studied 110 patients with urinary stones(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate the surgical difficulty and pathologic outcomes of patients who had undergone radical prostatectomy after previous prostate surgery. METHODS A total of 45 patients with previous prostate surgery underwent radical retropubic prostatectomy for prostate cancer. The surgical difficulty and pathologic outcomes for this group of patients(More)
