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)
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)
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)
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)
UNLABELLED What's known on the subject? and What does the study add? Milroy reported 84% success at a mean of 4.5 years follow-up by usage of a permanently implantable "urolume" spent in 1993. Memotherm was developed later, especially for urologic use. Our study is one of the largest in this urea, with a high number of patients and a long follow-up period.(More)
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 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 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)
PURPOSE To evaluate long-term cure rates and late complication rates after treatment for female stress urinary incontinence (SUI) with transobturator tape (TOT) procedure and to compare the outcomes of 1st year versus 5th year. METHODS We analyzed 138 women who underwent TOT procedure for pure SUI and mixed urinary incontinence in two institutions during(More)
INTRODUCTION The management of patients with large impacted upper ureteral stones is difficult; there is no standard treatment. We compared the outcomes of percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) and ureteroscopic lithotripsy (UL) to treat large (≥1.5 cm), impacted, upper ureteral stones. METHODS In total, 86 patients with large impacted upper ureteral stones(More)
