BACKGROUND High-grade urothelial carcinomas (UCs) often show foci of variant differentiation. There is limited information in the literature about the response of these variant urothelial tumors to immunotherapy with bacillus Calmette-Guerin (BCG). We compared the response, to treatment with BCG, of UC containing glandular, squamous, nested, and(More)
CONTEXT Urothelial carcinoma (UC) is common and highly recurrent. Diagnosis and follow-up involve invasive cystoscopies. OBJECTIVE To evaluate H19 RNA in urine cells as diagnostic tool for UC. MATERIALS AND METHODS RT-PCR analysis of urine samples from healthy volunteers and UC patients. RESULTS H19 RNA was unequivocally detected in the urine of 90.5%(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate the prognosis of patients who underwent surgery for invasive bladder cancer and to search for prognostic factors. METHODS The files of all the patients who underwent radical or partial cystectomy for invasive bladder cancer between 1992 and 2014 were reviewed. The effect of various prognostic factors was evaluated by uni- and(More)
MicroRNA (miRNA) are short nucleotide strands with a regulatory function in the cell. Several miRNAs have been shown to be useful as biomarkers for different neoplasms. The aim of this project was to assess whether levels of miRNA in cell free urine could be used as a biomarker in transitional cell carcinoma (TCC). cDNA libraries were produced based on(More)
Acute urinary retention is defined as failure to urinate in spite of an adequate amount of urine in the bladder. Acute urinary retention in children is rare, and may cause pain and distress. Diagnosis and urgent treatment are essential. Identification and treatment of underlying medical conditions such as constipation, neurological impairment or adverse(More)
PURPOSE To our knowledge the effect of testicular torsion on the pregnancy rate is unknown. In this study we focused on the pregnancy rate, which is the ultimate index of fertility status. MATERIALS AND METHODS We reviewed the records of 273 patients who presented to our emergency room with testicular torsion between 1994 and 2014. Study inclusion(More)
BACKGROUND It is recommended to perform multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging (mpMRI) in the follow-up following focal therapy of prostate cancer (PCa). OBJECTIVE To determine the diagnostic accuracy of mpMRI to detect residual PCa following focal therapy with irreversible electroporation. DESIGN, SETTING, AND PARTICIPANTS Seventy-six patients with(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of the study was to characterize the perinatal outcome of pregnancies complicated by placenta accreta. METHODS We conducted a case-control analysis of all deliveries between the years 1990 and 2000 that were complicated by placenta accreta. Perinatal variables included in the analysis were gestational age at delivery, birth weight,(More)
PURPOSE Transurethral surgery has been traditionally done using the nonelectrolyte, isotonic 1.5% glycine solution as irrigation fluid. The emergence of modern technologies, which can be applied with electrolyte solutions, such as bipolar resection and LASER evaporation, as well as the worry of transurethral resection (TUR) syndrome have driven urologists(More)
