BACKGROUND Aim of this study was to make a comparison between penile cuff test (PCT) and standard pressure-flow study (PFS) in the preoperative evaluation of patients candidates for trans-urethral resection of prostate (TURP) for benign prostatic obstruction (BPO). METHODS We enrolled male patients with lower urinary tract symptoms candidates for TURP.(More)
OBJECTIVES To determine the accuracy of multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging (mpMRI) during the learning curve of radiologists using MRI targeted, transrectal ultrasonography (TRUS) guided transperineal fusion biopsy (MTTP) for validation. PATIENTS AND METHODS Prospective data on 340 men who underwent mpMRI (T2-weighted and diffusion-weighted MRI)(More)
To test the hypothesis that MRI–TRUS fusion technique can increase the detection rate of prostate cancer (PC) in patients with previously negative biopsy. Patient records of men with persisting suspicion for PC after previous negative biopsy having undergone either extensive transrectal prostate biopsies (MD Anderson protocol; MDA), transperineal saturation(More)
BACKGROUND Prostate biopsy supported by transperineal image fusion has recently been developed as a new method to the improve accuracy of prostate cancer detection. OBJECTIVE To describe the Ginsburg protocol for transperineal prostate biopsy supported by multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging (mpMRI) and transrectal ultrasound (TRUS) image fusion,(More)
BACKGROUND Percutaneous Tibial Nerve Stimulation (PTNS) has been proposed for the treatment of overactive bladder syndrome (OAB), non-obstructive urinary retention (NOUR), neurogenic bladder, paediatric voiding dysfunction and chronic pelvic pain/painful bladder syndrome (CPP/PBS). Despite a number of publications produced in the last ten years, the role of(More)
BACKGROUND Bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG) is considered the most effective treatment to reduce recurrence and progression of non-muscle invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC) but can induce local side effects leading to treatment discontinuation or interruption. Aim of this exploratory study is to investigate if the sequential administration of Hyaluronic acid(More)
Nosocomial urinary tract infections are a common complication in healthcare systems worldwide. A review of the literature was performed in June 2014 using the Medical Literature Analysis and Retrieval System Online (MEDLINE) database, through either PubMed or Ovid as a search engine, to identify publications regarding nosocomial urinary tract infections(More)
In this article we review the current status of evidence on the clinic applications of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) in urology, with particular emphasis on the therapeutic use in all the chronic forms of cystitis. The so called "bladder layer" is mainly composed by chondroitin sulphate, dermatan sulphate and heparan sulphate. Demages of this mucus film seem to(More)
INTRODUCTION The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of three major environmental variables (temperature, humidity, air pressure) on the probability of onset of renal colic (RC) in a large cohort of patients in Rome. METHODS The records of 2682 patients discharged by the Emergency Department (ED) of the University Hospital of Tor Vergata,(More)
We aimed to determine short-term patient-reported outcomes in men having general anesthetic transperineal (TP) prostate biopsies. A prospective cohort study was performed in men having a diagnostic TP biopsy. This was done using a validated and adapted questionnaire immediately post-biopsy and at follow-up of between 7 and 14 days across three tertiary(More)
