To investigate and compare the infectious and non-infectious complications of single-dose versus multiple-dose antibiotic therapy for trans-rectal ultrasound (TRUS)-guided biopsy of the prostate. Patients were enrolled in a prospective randomized study that was designed to investigate the effects of single-dose versus multiple-dose antimicrobial prophylaxis(More)
Complex molecular changes that occur during prostate cancer (PCa) progression have been described recently. Whole genome sequencing of primary PCa samples has identified recurrent gene deletions and rearrangements in PCa. Specifically, these molecular events disrupt the gene loci of phosphatase and tensin homolog (PTEN) and membrane-associated guanylate(More)
Allograft with multiple renal arteries (MRA) is considered to have an increased post-transplantation risk due to vascular and urologic complications. The aim of this study is to investigate the outcome of living donor kidney transplantation using allograft with a single artery and recipients of allografts with multiple arteries. Seven hundred and eighteen(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to compare the risks and benefits of Mathieu repair of hypospadias with or without circumcision in consecutive operated cases. METHODS Eighty-six children with midshaft or distal hypospadias were randomly divided into two groups and underwent circumcision (Group A) or preputial reconstruction (Group B) during(More)
INTRODUCTION L,L-ethylenedicysteine (EC) is a new carrier of technetium Tc 99m (99mTc) with a lower affinity to plasma albumin in comparison with diethylenetriamine pentaacetic acid (DTPA). We compared 99mTc-EC scan with 99mTc-DTPA scan in diuretic renography for patients with obstructive uropathy. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirty-three patients with upper(More)
BACKGROUND Phosphatase and tensin homolog (PTEN) gene aberration and trans membrane protease, serine 2 (TMPRSS2)-v-ets avian erythroblastosis virus E26 oncogene homolog (ERG) fusion are the most prevalent genomic events in prostate cancer. In this study we aimed to evaluate the frequency of PTEN alteration and TMPRSS2-ERG fusion and possible link between(More)
Spermatic cord liposarcomas are very rare tumors. Patients usually present with painless growing scrotal swellings which are clinically misdiagnosed as hernia. The correct diagnosis is not common and usually they present as operative or histological surprises. To our knowledge, there are about 186 similar cases reported in the literature. Herein we report(More)
