Transurethral needle ablation of the prostate (TUNA) is a new, fast and minimally invasive device that produce a selective necrosis of the prostatic gland by delivering low level radiofrequency energy. We describe our experience with this new technique. A total of 42 patients suffering from symptomatic BPH were treated with this procedure. The original(More)
We report on a case of tuberculous ureteral stricture submitted to balloon dilatation, a procedure currently advocated by many authors as an alternative to surgical correction in benign ureteral stricture.

These benign lesions with no malignant potential have a varied form of presentation and in most cases must be distinguished from malignancy.

Obstructive anuria does not necessarily show a marked dilatation of the urinary tract on evaluation with imaging techniques. A case with acute renal failure of this type is presented. We discuss why this condition is caused and how diagnosis can be made quickly. Likewise, we discuss the length of time we can defer renal diversion before rupture of the(More)
