We prospectively studied 266 patients with indwelling double-pigtail ureteral stents to determine the incidence of stent colonization and associated bacteriuria. A urine culture was obtained just prior to stent insertion and was repeated at the time of its removal. The stent itself was also cultured. Of the 237 evaluable patients, 71 (29.9%) developed(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the clinicopathologic patterns of prostatic diseases in Saudi patients, with special emphasis on prostate cancer (PCa). METHODS The records of patients who underwent histopathological examinations of their prostatic specimens in King Abdulaziz University Medical City and King Faisal Specialist Hospital, Jeddah, Kingdom of Saudi(More)
Androgen and estrogen play an important role in the pathogenesis of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). Estrogen exerts its action through two distinct estrogen receptors (ERs) either ER-α or ER-β. The phytoestrogenic property of silymarin (SIL) has been previously characterized. Thus, this study examined the protective effect of SIL against(More)
Evidence is growing for the beneficial role of selective estrogen receptor modulators (SERM) in prostate diseases. Caffeic acid phenethyl ester (CAPE) is a promising component of propolis that possesses SERM activity. This study aimed at investigating the modulatory impact of CAPE on docetaxel (DOC) and paclitaxel (PTX) cytotoxicity in prostate cancer cells(More)
This paper presents the experience of King Abdulaziz University Hospital (KAUH) in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, with prostatic cancer patients seen over a period of more than ten years (1986-1997). Fifty-five patients with confirmed diagnosis of prostate cancer were identified at KAUH during this period. Forty-seven presented primarily to KAUH and eight were(More)
OBJECTIVES To examine the link between increased body mass index and benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) related complications, namely: acute urinary retention (AUR), Bladder stones and Bladder diverticula. MATERIAL AND METHODS PATIENTS We reviewed the medical records of BPH patients who underwent prostatectomy over three years period from 2010-2012.(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the association and possible relationship of prostate inflammation with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), and prostate cancer. METHODS The medical records and pathological findings of all Saudi patients who underwent transrectal ultrasound guided prostatic needle biopsies in King Abdulaziz University Medical City, Jeddah,Kingdom of(More)
OBJECTIVE To examine the hypotheses that clinical varicoceles affect baseline serum total testosterone levels (T) and varicocelectomy improves T. MATERIALS AND METHODS This prospective, nonrandomized, controlled study involved 4 groups of adult men. Varicocele-infertile treatment group (VIT) included 66 men who underwent varicocelectomy. Thirty-three(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the possibility of finding human papillomavirus (HPV) infection in the prostate tissue of a cohort of Saudi men presenting with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) or prostate cancer. METHODS A cohort study on prospectively collected tissue samples was conducted at King Abdulaziz University Hospital (KAUH), Jeddah, Kingdom of Saudi(More)
