AIM The association of 5-alpha reductase inhibitor (5ARI) therapy and sexual dysfunction has been reported. Some patients claim persistent erectile dysfunction despite long-term discontinuation of 5ARI treatment. The aim of this study was to assess erectile function after cessation of 5ARI therapy using a rat model. METHODS Twenty-six adult male(More)
INTRODUCTION The aim of this study was to determine if antibiotic or anti-inflammatory medications lower serum prostate-specific antigen (PSA) in the presence or absence of inflammation in the prostatic secretions of patients with PSA levels between 2.5 and 10 ng/ml and normal digital rectal examinations (DRE). MATERIALS AND METHODS Patients with PSA(More)
To evaluate the relationship between pathologically proven prostatic inflammation (PI) and re-operation rates due to urethral stricture (US) or bladder neck contracture (BNC) after transurethral resection of prostate (TUR-P). We have retrospectively reviewed the data of 917 consecutive TUR-P cases. Eligible patients (n = 276) were grouped with respect to(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the effects of pathological stage and surgical margin status on biochemical failure rates after radical prostatectomy (RP). MATERIALS AND METHODS The records of 205 patients who underwent RP for clinically localized prostate cancer (CaP) were evaluated. Known risk factors for biochemical failure (BF) were analyzed using univariate and(More)
Acute swelling of the parotid gland after general anesthesia (commonly known as anesthesia mumps or acute postoperative sialadenitis) is a rare but declared complication of anesthesia. The etiology is not clear, but some possible causes such as obstruction of glandular excretory ducts caused by patient position and increase in the viscosity of the saliva(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the correlation among various preoperative clinical variables, including certain prostate needle biopsy parameters, biochemical failure, and adverse pathology, after radical retropubic prostatectomy (RRP). We retrospectively evaluated the records of our 156 patients who underwent RRP because of localized prostate(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate whether upgrading of the biopsy after radical prostatectomy (RP) affects disease outcome in terms of unfavorable pathology and biochemical failure. PATIENTS AND METHODS We retrospectively evaluated the records of 174 patients who underwent RP. Prostate biopsy and RP specimen Gleason scores (GSs) and correlative clinical data were(More)
Loss of vision is a rare complication seen in hemodialysis patients. It is thought to develop because of the hypotension that can be observed during dialysis. This paper involves a patient with acute loss of vision during hemodialysis due to bilateral occipital infarcts.
INTRODUCTION The aim of this study was to compare age, prostatic volume, International Prostate Symptom Score (IPSS), maximal flow rate, serum total prostate-specific antigen (PSA), serum free PSA, free/total PSA ratio and PSA density values of familial and sporadic benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) patients suffering moderate or severe lower urinary tract(More)
OBJECTIVES To compare the prevalence of preoperative co-morbid factors and complications of transurethral resection of prostate (TUR-P) in patients with normal and non-dialysis requiring elevated serum creatinine levels. METHODS The records of 357 consecutive patients with IPSS≥20, serum creatinine level ≤ 3 mg/dl, residual urine volume ≤ 300 ml and with(More)
