Until recently, there was no standard second-line treatment for advanced urothelial carcinoma. Although included in first-line regimens, role of anthracyclines was never investigated as second-line therapy. Single-agent paclitaxel showed modest results in this setting. The purpose of this study was to assess the efficacy and toxicity of concomitant weekly(More)
Varicocele is the main cause of male infertility. Treatment stops continuous damage to spermatogenesis, thereby potentially improving fertility. Among all the available procedures, the ante-grade scrotal sclerotherapy (ASS), a combined radiological-surgical approach first introduced by Tauber, is gaining more popularity due to its minimal invasiveness.

OBJECTIVE Peyronie's disease (PD) is a fibrotic wound-healing condition of the tunica albuginea that results in penile deformity, curvature, hinging, narrowing and shortening, penile pain, and in some cases, erectile dysfunction (ED). Surgery remains the gold standard treatment option, ensuring the faster and trustworthy treatment. For those patients who(More)
Chlamydia trachomatis (C.t.) cell culture represents a sensitive method for the diagnosis of chlamydial infection and the only one which makes it possible to determine the susceptibility of an isolate to antibiotics so that an appropriate drug can be selected for individual treatment. In 11 patients, affected by urethroprostatitis and suspected of treatment(More)
Fibrolipomas are a rare subtype of lipomas. We describe a case of a man suffering from subcutaneous penile fibrolipoma, who three months earlier has been submitted to an augmentative phalloplasty due to aesthetic dysmorphophobia. After six months from the excision of the mass, the penile elongation and penile enlargement were stable, and the patient was(More)
We present the use of a modified corporoplasty, based on geometrical principles, to determine the exact site for the incision in the tunica or plaque and the exact amount of albuginea for overlaying to correct with extreme precision the different types of congenital or acquired penile curvature due to Peyronie's disease. To describe our experience with a(More)
