Androgen deprivation therapy represents an important part of the management of prostate cancer. However, epidemiological data have shown that it is a well-established cause of osteoporosis and increased risk of fracture. So far no consensus guidelines have been published regarding the screening and treatment of osteoporosis in men with prostate cancer. Here(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the improvement of prostatic cancer detection provided by ten strictly systematized transrectal prostatic biopsies. MATERIAL AND METHODS This prospective study was conducted in 162 patients submitted to a series of 10 ultrasound-guided transrectal prostatic biopsies due to the presence of elevated PSA and/or an abnormality on digital(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the improvement in the rate of detection of prostate cancer using an extensive protocol involving ten transrectal biopsies. METHODS A total of 162 patients submitted to transrectal ultrasound-guided biopsy for elevated prostate-specific antigen (PSA) and/or abnormality on digital rectal examination were studied consecutively and(More)
Seventy patients (mean age: 66.5 69 y) were submitted to TRUS-guided prostate biopsies for increased prostate speci®c antigen (PSA> 4 ng=ml). Mean PSA was 10.5 10.9 ng=ml. In this new protocol, ®ve biopsies were performed in each lobe. Beside the three standard biopsies (taken at 45 angle), two additional biopsies (one at the base and one at the mid-lobe)(More)
We reviewed 60 cases of multicystic renal dysplasia managed in our institution during a 10-year period, 54 of which were prenatally detected; 59 were unilateral dysplastic multicystic kidneys (DMK) and 1 bilateral. The mean gestational age at diagnosis was 28.1 weeks. Associated anomalies were present in 17 cases; 4 of these infants died. In 19 cases, a(More)
Balloon catheter dilatation is a low-cost alternative to open surgery in patients with ureteral strictures, leading to low morbidity and short hospitalization. The goal of this study was to evaluate the results of this technique in patients with inflammatory ureteral strictures or ureteroenteric strictures after radical cystectomy. Twenty-five ureteral(More)
PURPOSE To characterize the structure of normal pig ureteral urothelium. MATERIALS AND METHODS Normal ureters of adult pigs [Large White] were studied by light microscopy. Cells were stained histochemically for glycogen and mucin with Periodic Acid Shiff and Alcian Blue. RESULTS Pig urothelium has a comparable structure to that of man: transitional(More)
