A total of 42 untreated patients (38 male, 4 female) with metastatic bladder cancer were included in the study, which took place between July 2007 and April 2013. The mean age(More)
Renal cell carcinomas (RCCs) metastasize to the adrenal glands via various mechanisms, including lymphatic vessel arterial embolism and retrograde venous embolism. The rate of ipsilateral metastasis is 3-5% and the rate of contralateral metastasis is ~0.7%, however, synchronous bilateral adrenal metastases are extremely rare. Therefore, the optimal(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to evaluate the results of fluorescein angiography-guided photodynamic therapy with half-dose verteporfin in the treatment of chronic central serous chorioretinopathy with focal leakage areas. METHODS Eight cases with a history of central serous chorioretinopathy of ≥6 months were included. All eyes had one or more(More)
The aim of the present study was to retrospectively evaluate the contribution and effectiveness of 18 F-f luorodeoxyglucose-positron emission tomography/computed tomography (18 F-FDG-PET/CT) scans in the restaging of patients following radical cystectomy due to muscle-invasive bladder carcinoma (MIBC). A total of 51 patients (45 males and six females) who(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to retrospectively investigate the contribution of (18)F-fluorodeoxyglucose-positron emission tomography/computed tomography ((18)F-FDG-PET/CT) to detection of metastatic bladder cancer. MATERIALS AND METHODS The present study included 79 patients (69 men and 10 women) undergoing (18)F-FDG-PET/CT upon suspicion of(More)
An ectopic kidney was found incidentally in a 20-year-old male patient during the abdominopelvic CT angiography. It was situated on the right side at the abdominopelvic junction, partly in the abdomen at the level of the intervertebral disc between L3 and L4 superiorly and partly in the greater pelvis at the level of the promontorium and close to the(More)
An unreported pattern of communication between musculocutaneous (Mcn) and median nerve (Mn) with multiple variations of biceps brachii (Bb) was observed during the dissection of a male cadaver. The first branch of the Mcn ended in coracobrachialis (Cb). The second was the main Mcn piercing the Cb and giving its motor branches to the muscles of the anterior(More)

Penile Mondor's disease (PMD) is thrombophlebitis of the superficial dorsal vein of the penis. It is usually considered as thrombophlebitis or phlebitis of subcutaneous vessels. Some findings suggest that it(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate gastrointestinal tract complications of percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL), to determine risk factors, and to develop strategies for diagnosis and treatment. MATERIAL AND METHODS A literature review was conducted for the studies published in the English language in the databases of PubMed and Scopus between July 1985 and June 2013.(More)
An extremely rare bifurcation pattern at the caudal abdominal aorta was encountered on the pelvic angiography and MR angiography of a male patient. Instead of dividing into two common iliac arteries, the caudal abdominal aorta first gave the right external iliac artery at the level of the last lumbar arteries, then bifurcated into a right internal iliac(More)
