Ejaculatory duct obstructions are diagnosed in approximately 5% of azoospermic men and can be treated by transurethral resection (TURED) or incision of the ducts. Eight patients with azoospermia and ejaculatory duct obstructions were treated by TURED after clinical examination, semen analysis, biochemical analysis of seminal plasma, endocrine analysis,(More)
Incidence, extent, and time of seed loss after retropubic I-125 implantation was assessed in 52 patients treated for prostatic carcinoma. Radiographic controls up to 62 months were done to evaluate losses. Ninety percent of all patients lost seeds, averaging 8% of total implant number. Loss most frequently occurred within the first month by transurethral(More)
OBJECTIVES Stricture of the vesico-urethral anastomosis is a well-known complication after radical prostatectomy. Dilatation, stricture incision or resection have been proposed for endoscopic treatment. METHODS In a retrospective study of 340 patients with prostatic cancer who underwent a radical retropubic prostatectomy from 1988 until 1996, we looked at(More)
OBJECTIVE To reduce the incidence of postoperative palpable induration after treating congenital penile curvature, using a modified corporoplasty technique. PATIENTS AND METHODS In a retrospective unrandomized clinical trial, 105 patients with a congenital penile angulation of >30 degrees and for whom coitus was therefore difficult or impossible,(More)
In renal disease, therapeutic procedures performed by radiologists include embolisation, cystography with obliteration and percutaneous nephrostomy. More than 72 therapeutic occlusions of the renal artery by balloon, coil, and gelfoam are presented. Basic differences in technique of application and in the mechanism of Ethibloc in comparison to other kinds(More)
In the past decade, subureteric endoscopic injection of Teflon or collagen has been propagated as a safe and successful treatment for vesicoureteral reflux. In our center, from 1990 through 1995, 118 children and 5 adults with reflux and recurrent urinary tract infections were injected with cross-linked bovine collagen in an open, prospective study.(More)
Vaccination with gene-transfected tumor cells has recently been proposed as a new strategy in the immunotherapy of cancer. Since autologous tumor cells provide an optimal antigen profile, the possibility of generating single cell suspensions from renal cell carcinoma (RCC), malignant melanoma (MM), colon carcinoma (CC), and non-small-cell lung cancer(More)
A series of 65 consecutive patients with suspected venous leakage as a cause of their erectile dysfunction underwent dynamic and pharmacocavernometry/cavernography. This comparison of methods for diagnosing venous leakage produced divergent findings in 25/65 patients (38.5%). Because of its theoretical advantages, pharmacocavernometry/cavernography is(More)
The fundamental disorder in renal tubular acidosis--the impaired excretions of hydrogen ions--can favourably be influenced by etacrynic acid (Hydromedin). Net acid and calcium excretion was measured in eight patients with incomplete RTA I and five controls before and during treatment with the diuretic: urinary pH was lowered and net acid excretion increased(More)
