BACKGROUND In this paper we study the Free/Total PSA kinetics in patients with clinically localized prostate cancer undergoing radical prostatectomy. METHODS Serum PSA, Free PSA and Free/Total Ratio were determined preoperatively, at the time of prostate removal (0 time) and then at 3, 6, 12, 24, 48, 72 and 168 h, from 9 patients with clinically localized(More)
BACKGROUND Radical cystoprostatectomy and radical prostatectomy are the two major operations where prostate is totally and radically removed. Radical cystoprostatectomy is usually performed in patients with invasive bladder cancer. The aim of the study was to examine Total PSA, Free PSA, and Free/Total Ratio elimination kinetics after radical(More)
UNLABELLED The aim of this study was to elucidate the prognostic value of the immunohistochemical detection of the androgen receptor (AR) status, the chromogranin A assessment of neuroendocrine differentiation (NED) and the CD34 assessment of microvessel density (MVD) with time-to-biochemical failure among surgically treated patients with clinically(More)
Herein, we report on our experience with six patients (0.3%) diagnosed with lymphoepithelioma-like bladder carcinoma (LELBC) over the past 15 years at our department. The mean age of the patients with LELBC was 73 years (range 69-80 years). All patients had at least pT2 disease. The primary treatment was transurethral resection of the bladder tumor, radical(More)
We report the one-stage surgical management of a 68-year-old patient with renal cell carcinoma and serious hematuria combined with coronary artery disease and unstable angina. After the accomplishment of coronary revascularization without cardiopulmonary bypass, we proceeded to nephrectomy and resection of the renal tumor at the same time. The patient's(More)
BACKGROUND The inferior vena cava (IVC) is involved in almost 5% to 10% of renal tumors. Their intraluminar extension to the cardiac cavities occurs with a tumor-thrombus formation at a percentage of 1%. The aim of this study is to present the principles of "radical" management that should be targeted to excision of the kidney together with the cavoatrial(More)
BACKGROUND Detection of genetically-changed tumor cells in the urine is one of the new approaches for the screening of bladder carcinomas. In a previous study, numerical aberrations of chromosome 9 were found in 85.18% of bladder tumors studied by the fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) technique. The purpose of the present study was to investigate(More)
This study concerns the results of penile biopsies in 50 patients aged 27 to 80, with secondary impotence removed with a biopty gun or during penile surgery. The biopty gun specimens were equally representative as the open biopsy ones. The cause and the degree of erectile dysfunction were determined by clinical and laboratorial investigation. The(More)
