BACKGROUND Sudden death (SD) constitutes one of the principal causes of death and is an important problem in healthcare provision. Cardiovascular diseases have a high prevalence in dialysis patients and constitute the principal cause of death. We sought to analyze retrospectively the incidence of SD in patients commencing dialysis and the factors related to(More)
BACKGROUND We aimed to evaluate whether oral anticoagulants (OACs) alter faecal immunochemical test (FIT) performance in average-risk colorectal cancer (CRC) screening. METHODS Individuals aged 50-69 years were invited to receive one FIT sample (cutoff 75 ng ml(-1)) between November 2008 and June 2011. RESULTS Faecal immunochemical test was positive in(More)
PURPOSE/OBJECTIVE Little is known about the clinical impact of using multiparametric MRI to plan early salvage radiotherapy after radical prostatectomy. We aimed to evaluate the incidence and location of recurrence based on pelvic multiparametric MRI findings and to identify clinical variables predictive of positive imaging results. MATERIALS AND METHODS(More)
CONTEXT For many years, the detection of prostate cancer (PC) and the management of its therapy have been based primarily on prostate-specific antigen, rectal examination and prostate biopsy. However, these parameters have known limitations. Multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging (mpMRI) for prostate cancer has undergone extensive development in recent(More)
PURPOSE We analyzed the incidence of and predictive factors for ureteral stenosis and recurrent upper urinary tract urothelial carcinoma after resection of tumors located in the intramural portion of the distal ureter. MATERIALS AND METHODS We retrospectively analyzed the records of 2,317 patients who underwent transurethral resection of bladder tumor for(More)
BACKGROUND The risk-benefit of antithrombotic treatment (ATT) has not been established in patients on dialysis. Our objective was to determine the influence of ATT on the risk of hemorrhage in patients on hemodialysis. METHODS We included patients who began dialysis between 2003 and 2007. We determined the rates of fatal bleeding or bleeding leading to(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to determine the incidence of acute renal failure secondary to rhabdomyolysis (ARFSR) as a complication of major urological surgery (MUS), as well as to describe the clinical characteristics and identify possible risk and protective factors. SUBJECTS AND METHODS Cases of ARFSR due to MUS between January 1997 and August(More)
