PURPOSE To compare the Guy and Clinical Research Office of the Endourological Society (CROES) scoring systems in predicting postpercutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) stone-free rate and complications. PATIENTS AND METHODS A total of 437 patients who underwent PCNL for renal stones were included in the recent retrospective study. All stones were evaluated(More)
INTRODUCTION In this prospective randomized controlled study, we investigated the efficacy of obturator nerve block (ONB) on adductor muscle spasm and related short-term outcomes and complications in patients who underwent transurethral resection of lateral wall-located bladder tumours (TURBT). METHODS Between July 2014 and February 2015, 70 patients(More)
Hydatic cyst of seminal vesicles is very rarely seen. We report a case who complained of the inability to void, which developed progressively with dysuria, frequency, nocturia, and tenesmus, due to a giant retrovesical hydatid cyst that displaced the bladder and rectosigmoid region.
INTRODUCTION We aimed to demonstrate the efficacy, safety, and convenient use of fosfomycin trometamol in the preoperative antibiotic prophylaxis (PAP) of transrectal ultrasound-guided biopsy of the prostate (TRUSBP) in this prospective, randomized study. METHODS Between May 2014 and May 2015, a total of 300 patients who underwent TRUSBP were examined(More)
Little information is available on the effects of concomitant vaginal prolapse repair on the outcomes of the transobturator tape (TOT) procedure. The purpose of this study is to assess the results and complications of TOT when combined with vaginal prolapse repair with a long-term follow-up. We conducted a retrospective cohort study of 232 female patients(More)
The aim of this study was to compare the accuracy of the CROES nephrolithometric nomogram and S.T.O.N.E. scoring system in predicting PCNL outcomes in terms of stone-free rate, estimated blood loss (EBL), operative time (OR), length of hospital stay (LOS), and complications. Patients who underwent PCNL for renal stones between May 2012 and January 2015 were(More)
To determine the effectiveness of transdermal electromotive administration (TEA) of verapamil and dexamethasone in the treatment of Peyronie’s disease (PD). Totally, 51 patients with PD were prospectively included in the study. All patients were evaluated by history, subjective score scales, physical examination, photographs, and penile USG, before and(More)
INTRODUCTION Penile prostheses are subject to a continuous development and have gained better mechanical reliability and safety during the last decades. In this study, we aimed to investigate the outcomes and satisfaction rates of inflatable penile prosthesis (IPP) and semirigid penile prosthesis (SPP) implantation. MATERIALS AND METHODS From August 2001(More)
The aim of the study was to assess the preoperative and intraoperative potential risk factors for infectious complications after percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL). A total of 303 patients who underwent PCNL for renal stones were included in the recent study. A detailed history including past renal surgery, nephrostomy insertion and recurrent urinary(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the natural history of white blood cell (WBC) values and incidence of leukocytosis after percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL), factors associated with development of postoperative leukocytosis, and predictive value of WBC count for infection. METHODS A total of 303 patients who underwent PCNL for renal stones were included in the(More)
