This study concerns 2043 male partners of infertile marriages who underwent testicular biopsy in the 28 years from 1955 to 1982. In a review of the pathological material carcinoma in situ (CIS) was diagnosed in 8 men (0.39%). Six of these men were later found to have invasive germ cell tumours; one has remained tumour-free and one is lost to follow-up. The(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the outcome of the Stamey procedure for stress incontinence and to decide if it is an acceptable first-line option for the treatment of patients. PATIENTS AND METHODS Between June 1987 and March 1993 67 women had Stamey bladder neck suspension carried out for the treatment of stress incontinence. In September 1993 all patients(More)
In a review of 1057 consecutive prostatectomies of which 95% were performed transurethrally, carcinoma was present in 11.8%. There were 10 deaths within a month of operation (0.9%), 9 of these patients having been exceptionally old and unfit. The rate of complications and the end results appear to justify using transurethral resection as the method of(More)
The introduction of optical urethrotomy by Sachse has reduced the need for urethroplasty: 261 urethroplasties were performed between 1964 and 1983, of which 87 were performed in one stage on patients who would today have undergone urethrotomy as the procedure of first choice. The results in this group are compared with those in 151 patients treated between(More)
The adrenergic and cholinergic innervation of the smooth and striated muscle components of the urethra from spinal cord injury patients with detrusor sphincter dyssynergia were investigated neurochemically and histochemically. Catecholamine fluorescence histochemistry provided no evidence for the presence of adrenergic nerves associated with the skeletal(More)
A group of 69 community patients undergoing long-term urethral catheterisation for urinary incontinence took part in this study; 33 patients with a mean age of 70.03 years (+/- 16.6) received the Dow Corning Silastic catheter (16 F 10-ml balloon) and 36 patients with a mean age of 75.61 years (+/- 12.6) received the Bard Biocath catheter (16 F 10-ml(More)
Specimens obtained by transurethral sphincterectomy from patients with spinal cord injury and carcinoma of the bladder were studied immunohistochemically. In the smooth muscle region of the sphincter, vasoactive intestinal polypeptide-, substance P- and somatostatin-immunoreactive fluorescent, varicose nerve fibers were seen. In the striated muscle region,(More)
High dose intravenous stilboestrol has a direct cytotoxic effect on prostatic carcinoma cells. The purpose of this study was to assess subjective and objective responses in a select group of patients with metastatic, hormonerefractory carcinoma of the prostate with severe generalized bone pain in association with symptoms of advanced local disease.(More)
