Chronic kidney disease after nephrectomy in patients with renal cortical tumours: a retrospective cohort study.
BACKGROUND Chronic kidney disease is a graded and independent risk factor for substantial comorbidity and death. We aimed to examine new onset of chronic kidney disease in patients with small, renal… Expand
Targeting chromatin binding regulation of constitutively active AR variants to overcome prostate cancer resistance to endocrine-based therapies
Androgen receptor (AR) variants (AR-Vs) expressed in prostate cancer (PCa) lack the AR ligand binding domain (LBD) and function as constitutively active transcription factors. AR-V expression in… Expand
Renal function outcomes in patients treated for renal masses smaller than 4 cm by ablative and extirpative techniques.

PURPOSE We examined the effect of radical nephrectomy, partial nephrectomy and radio frequency ablation on renal function in patients with stage T1a renal masses. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of… Expand
The impact of targeted molecular therapies on the level of renal cell carcinoma vena caval tumor thrombus.
BACKGROUND Targeted molecular therapies (TMTs) previously have demonstrated oncologic activity in renal cell carcinoma (RCC) by reducing the size of primary tumors and metastases. OBJECTIVE To… Expand
Percutaneous management of calculi within horseshoe kidneys.
PURPOSE Percutaneous treatment of patients with calculi in a horseshoe kidney can be challenging due to the altered anatomical relationship in the retroperitoneum. Therefore, we performed a… Expand

Molecularly targeted therapies for advanced prostate cancer include castration modalities that suppress ligand-dependent transcriptional activity of the androgen receptor (AR). However, persistent AR… Expand
Dual roles of PARP-1 promote cancer growth and progression.
UNLABELLED PARP-1 is an abundant nuclear enzyme that modifies substrates by poly(ADP-ribose)-ylation. PARP-1 has well-described functions in DNA damage repair and also functions as a context-specific… Expand

PURPOSE We determined the incidence of benign renal lesions in patients undergoing definitive surgery for localized renal masses 7 cm or less in maximum radiological diameter, and assessed… Expand
Outcomes following erosions of the artificial urinary sphincter.
PURPOSE Artificial urinary sphincter urethral cuff erosion occurs in up to 5.0% of cases, presenting a complex management problem. We examine our experience with the eroded AUS, relating to… Expand
