OBJECTIVE To investigate the reliability of magnetic resonance urography (MRU) using heavily T2-weighted very fast spin-echo sequences in imaging the upper urinary tract in patients with spinal dysraphism and neuropathic bladder dysfunction. PATIENTS AND METHODS Patients with neuropathic bladder dysfunction secondary to spinal dysraphism may have gross(More)
OBJECTIVES To report a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial of glyceryl trinitrate (GTN) patches. The primary outcome measure was stone passage at 6 weeks. GTN is a potent smooth muscle relaxant that may offer benefit by both reducing pain and facilitating ureteral stone passage. METHODS Fifty consecutive patients, with a single radiopaque(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the agreement between on-table weighing and the ethanol breath test in measuring the fluid absorption of patients during transurethral prostatectomy (TURP), and to assess the practicality of on-table weighing in the clinical setting. PATIENTS AND METHODS The absorption of irrigating fluid by the patient during TURP can lead to(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Bladder augmentation in children can have significant benefits in terms of continence and social function. In an attempt to overcome the problems associated with using foreign mucosa in the urinary tract, techniques to increase to bladder volume and improve compliance by resecting the detrusor muscle alone have been described.
