OBJECTIVES To investigate the expression of sex-specific hormone receptors in normal bladder urothelium and urothelial carcinomas (UCs) of the bladder, and to analyze clinicopathological features and survival outcomes according to receptor expression. METHODS We evaluated the clinical data and tumor specimens of 139 patients with bladder cancer (BC). In(More)
Prepubertal testicular masses are relatively rare. Sertoli cell tumors account for 2% of prepubertal testicular tumors and very few have occurred in the first decade of life. Gynecomastia can be seen in approximately 5% of patients with testicular mass. We present an 8-month-old boy admitted with bilateral gynecomastia and unilateral testicular mass.
Proanthocyanidins are potent natural antioxidants which belong to a class of polyphenols. Proanthocyanidin-rich extracts are prepared from grape seeds. The effect of grape seed proanthocyanidin extract (GSPE) on the viability of abdominal skin flaps exposed to warm ischaemia and subsequent reperfusion were studied in 40 male Wistar rats. In the control(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to determine the role of p53, Bcl-2 and Ki-67 expression in the carcinogenesis of cervical carcinoma and aggressiveness of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN). METHODS The pathology specimens of 63 patients with a diagnosis of normal squamous epithelium (22 cases), CIN I (14), CIN II (5), CIN III (8) and squamous(More)
This paper presents the details of an experimental study of arterial anastomosis, combining suture with the cyanoacrylate tissue adhesive. At the distal end of the vessel, two parallel incisions were made, 180 degrees apart from each other, and two sutures were placed passing from the proximal end to exit from the most distal part of the longitudinal(More)
OBJECTIVES We aimed to assess various bone grafts on bone formation using bone scintigraphy and histology, especially the first study that evaluated the demineralized bone matrix (DBM) + tricalcium phosphate (TCP) + hyaluronic acid (HA) combination. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 44 pieces in groups of autogenous bone graft, TCP, DBM, DBM + TCP(More)
Renal angiomyolipoma (AML) is the most common benign renal mesenchymal tumors. AMLs are usually asymptomatic and frequently affect women. Only epithelioid variant has malignant potential. Although life-threatening complications related to retroperitoneal bleeding and massive hematuria are possible, it is often detected incidentally. Pulmonary embolism as(More)
BACKGROUND PAX2 is a member of paired box gene family and expressed during development of urogenital system. This study aimed to evaluate PAX2 expression pattern in hyperplastic and malignant endometrial tissues in comparison to non-pathological endometrial changes and to investigate the presence of any correlation between the PAX2 expression and tumor(More)
OBJECTIVES To examine the prognostic significance of Gelsolin, NF-κB, and p53 in clear cell renal cell carcinoma (CRCC), which has an unpredictable behavior and tendency for recurrence and metastasis. MATERIALS AND METHODS Immunohistochemistry was performed on 100 consecutive cases of CRCC using antibodies against Gelsolin, NF-κB, and p53. Tumors were(More)
Transitional cell carcinoma of the bladder is a rare entity in childhood. We report on a 10-year-old boy with transitional cell carcinoma of the bladder who presented with gross hematuria. Ultrasonography revealed a papillary lesion in the bladder. Cystoscopic evaluation showed a papillary lesion with a thick stalk located just above the right ureteral(More)
