The management of vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) is varied and remains controversial, which is likely because children with VUR have different risks for urinary tract infection or renal injury. Consequently, the treatment of VUR needs to be individualized based on the patient's characteristics. In this article, the authors review the medical and surgical(More)
PURPOSE Metastatic renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is one of the most treatment-resistant malignancies and nephrectomy, isolated or combined with systemic chemotherapy typically has limited or no effectiveness. We report our initial results in patients treated with the association of molecular targeted therapy, nephrectomy, and hybrid dendritic-tumor cell (DC)(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the presentation and early surgical outcomes of elderly patients undergoing adrenalectomy for phaeochromocytoma. PATIENTS AND METHODS A retrospective search was performed of our adrenal disorders database for patients who underwent surgery for phaeochromocytoma or paraganglioma between 2009 and 2014. Patients >60 years old were(More)
OBJECTIVE To avoid hormonal replacement after partial adrenalectomy (PA), establishing the precise limit of an adrenal gland resection is essential. Herein, we evaluated the use of three-dimensional (3D) adrenal gland printing and volumetry measurement before PA to improve the determination of the remnant gland volume. METHODS Concomitant total(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the role of ARDT after surgical resection of ACC. MATERIALS AND METHODS Records of patients from our institutional ACC database were retrospectively assessed. A paired comparison analysis was used to evaluate the oncological outcomes between patients treated with surgery followed by ARDT or surgery only (control). The endpoints were(More)
The participation of aberrant receptors and intra-adrenal ACTH in hyperplastic tissue are considered mechanisms that regulate hypercortisolism in PMAH. Additionally, germline ARMC5 mutations have been described as the most frequent genetic abnormality found in patients diagnosed with PMAH. Previous functional studies analyzed ARMC5 role using H295R cells.(More)
Objective: Minimal invasive thermal ablative techniques are emerging as a viable option for patients who are not candidates for open, laparoscopic or robotic-assisted partial nephrectomy. Cryoablation is a low risk alternative with good oncologic outcomes. We present our initial experience with cryoablation for small renal masses using the laparoscopic(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the efficiency of a novel device coupled with ultrassound for renal percutaneous puncture. MATERIALS AND METHODS After establishing hydronephrosis, ten pigs had three calyxes of each kidney punctured by the same urology resident, with and without the new device ("Punctiometer"). Time for procedure completion, number of attempts to(More)
