AIMS To examine the efficacy of using fibrin glue (FG) as an interpositioning layer in the repair of complicated vesioovaginal fistulae (VVFe) as compared to the classical repair using martius flaps (Ml'). METHODS The study was conducted in 3 African institutions. Forty female patients with complicated VVFs were randomized into 2 groups. Group A were(More)
AIMS To identify the relationship between nocturnal AVP deficiency, nocturnal polyuria (NP), and low urinary osmolality in children suffering of primary monosymptomatic nocturnal enuresis (NE). PATIENTS AND METHODS The study included 50 children (28 males and 22 females) with primary monosymptomatic NE and 30 non enuretic children of the same age group(More)
The objective of this work is to test the ablation capability and fiber degradation of the novel Twister fibers (TW), in both the large (LTW) and the standard (STW) sizes, against the standard side-firing (SF) fiber in a clinical setting during the treatment of BPH patients using the 980-nm high-power diode laser (HPDL). One hundred and twenty BPH patients(More)
OBJECTIVE To test the hypothesis that not trimming the edges of the vesico-vaginal fistula (VVF) during its surgical repair has an advantage in the outcome as compared to the classical teaching of trimming the fistula. METHODOLOGY Sixty-four females with obstetric VVF were randomized into two groups. Both groups were treated with vaginal anatomical(More)
OBJECTIVES To review non-morcellation approaches for tissue retrieval after holmium laser enucleation of the prostate (HoLEP) and whether these approaches demolish the advantages of the HoLEP procedure. PATIENTS AND METHODS We reviewed our prospectively maintained laser prostate database for HoLEP procedures where non-morcellation approaches were used for(More)
INTRODUCTION Computerized tomography of the urinary tract (CT-UT) has been established as the diagnostic procedure of choice for urinary stones. This study aimed to evaluate its role in predicting the outcome of percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) in terms of stone free rate and residual fragments. METHOD This prospective cohort study was conducted on 34(More)
In this work, we are presenting a rat animal model for bladder hyperreflexia after suprasacral spinal cord transection. Our aim was to standardize an animal model that can be useful in studying this condition. After standardizing the animal model in a pilot study, 26 female Sprague-Dawley rats were subjected to spinal cord transection at the level of T10(More)
