Severe hypertension and a decrease of renal function, with or without oliguria, suggest renal artery stenosis in the transplanted kidney. 6 renal artery stenoses were observed in 100 transplanted kidneys followed up for more than 3 months. In 4 patients, percutaneous transluminal angioplasty was performed. 1 patient required a new percutaneous transluminal(More)
We present a time-resolved study of the evaporation in air of minuscule sessile droplets deposited by nanodispensing techniques. Highly sensitive nanomechanical resonators are designed to monitor in time the mass variation of evaporating liquid droplets. The precision of the measurement setup enables the study of droplets with diameters in the 1 mum range,(More)
Thirteen patients with lithiasis and horseshoe kidney were evaluated (4 cases with bilateral stones). Fifteen kidney units were treated with extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL), and in 2 cases, percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCN) was used. The excellent results achieved with ESWL (80%) and the low incidence of complications (2 cases of nephritic(More)
Many nanofabrication methods based on scanning probe microscopy have been developed during the last decades. Local anodic oxidation (LAO) is one of such methods: Upon application of an electric field between tip and surface under ambient conditions, oxide patterning with nanometer-scale resolution can be performed with good control of dimensions and(More)
We present our experience in the treatment of 8 patients with priapism after intravenous injection of vasoactive drugs, and of 15 patients with persistent erections in the course of transurethral cystoscopy surgery. All of them were treated with intracavernous injection of 10 mg ethylephrine (1 ml Efortil-R). The results were satisfactory in all cases. In(More)
To correct urine incontinence at minimal exertion in woman, most especially in those who have undergone unsuccessful vaginal techniques, we advice the aponeurotic suspension of the vesical cervix, with anchorage, in fixed tissue (Cooper's ligament or ischiopubic branch) in order to avoid displacement of the supporting band and new drops of the vesical(More)
We submit our experience with laser treatment for ureteral lithiasis. We used the laser Candela MDL 2000 for the treatment of 62 lithiases (40 at the pelvic ureter, 16 at the iliac ureter and 6 at the lumbar ureter) in 58 patients. A semi-rigid Dretler or Gautier multiscope were used. Of the 62 calculi complete fragmentation was not achieved in 4 and they(More)
200 patients suffering from benign prostatic hyperplasia were treated with hyperthermia: 100 cases through the rectal approach and 100 through the urethral approach. Subjective symptoms were assessed as well as nycturia and objective data, urinary flow and postmicturition residue before treatment and 6 months after treatment. In the group of 100 patients(More)
