OBJECTIVES To evaluate the BTA stat Test in the detection of recurrent bladder cancer. METHODS Sensitivity and specificity were determined using frozen voided urine samples from patients with recurrent bladder cancer, volunteers, patients with nonurologic conditions, and patients with a history of bladder cancer but free of disease. Results of cytology(More)
A subcellular particulate fraction containing the NADPH-dependent O2.--generating oxidase from stimulated human neutrophils was prepared. This fraction was depleted of certain enzyme markers of primary and secondary granules and was devoid of measurable myeloperoxidase, both enzymatically and spectrally. When prepared from neutrophils which had been(More)
Between June 1999 and November 2001 a prospective study was conducted to evaluate the effects of pneumoperitoneum during laparoscopic donor nephrectomy on kidney function using two different pressure settings (15 and 10 mm Hg). The effects were evaluated in both the donor's remaining kidney and the procured kidney in the recipient. There was no statistical(More)
Fifty-nine consecutive patients underwent live donor nephrectomy for transplantation. Twenty-nine patients (Group I) had open kidney procurement, and 30 patients (Group II) had laparoscopic procurement. The mean operative time in Group I was 2:30 hours (range 1:55-2:59), whereas in Group II it was 3:01 hours (1:54-5:21). All kidneys functioned immediately(More)
The incidence of bladder cancer has grown over the years, presumably in part because of increasing exposure to carcinogenic agents in modern-day life. Drs Badalament and Schervish outline the latest diagnostic and staging methods for the disease and summarize treatment options for superficial, invasive, and metastatic cancers, including discussion of(More)
Recently, laparoscopic harvesting of kidneys from live donors has been reported by major university centers. As a community transplant center, we adopted a multidisciplinary cooperative approach, including a full-time transplant surgeon, a laparoscopic general surgeon, and a urologist with laparoscopic experience, in order to perform our first successful(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the safety and efficacy of ultrasound (US)-guided percutaneous renal mass biopsy (RMB) performed in the office setting by urologists. MATERIALS AND METHODS This is a retrospective study involving patients who underwent office-based US-guided percutaneous RMB between April 2010 and October 2015. Baseline vital signs and US were(More)
PURPOSE A priority of MUSIC (Michigan Urological Surgery Improvement Collaborative) is to improve patient outcomes after radical prostatectomy. As part of these efforts we developed a novel system that uses unambiguous events to define an uncomplicated 30-day postoperative recovery and compares these outcomes across diverse urology practices.
