any epistaxis hypothesis, but merely indicated when our data were consistent with other work. 5 Overall, there was a significant difference between epistaxis in upper and lower pathway cannulation, but as we indicated in the paper, the number of preformed and thermosoftened preformed tubes passing though the lower pathway was too small (16.7% and 20%,(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the influence, in terms of prognosis, of the finding of seminal vesicle involvement in patients with prostate adenocarcinoma treated with radical prostatectomy. MATERIAL AND METHOD We reviewed a series of patients with seminal vesicle involvement with clinically localized prostate adenocarcinoma who underwent radical prostatectomy(More)
INTRODUCTION We conducted a retrospective analysis of our series to assess the factors that influenced disease-free survival (DFS) and cancer-specific survival (CSS) for patients with localised renal cell carcinoma (RCC). We also created our own risk groups. MATERIAL AND METHODS Between January 1990 and December 2012, 596 patients underwent surgery for(More)
INTRODUCTION Extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL) is a non-invasive, safe and effective treatment for urinary tract lithiasis. Its effectiveness varies depending on the location and size of the stones as well as other factors; several sessions are occasionally required. The objective is to attempt to predict its success or failure, when the(More)
OBJECTIVES We intend to analyze the prognostic value of positive surgical margins depending on their number and location in pT2 patients. METHODS We analyze 448 (34.3%) patients with positive surgical margins from a series of 1,310 T1-T2 patients treated with radical prostatectomy between 1989-2012. Of them 164 are pT2 (+). 119 (72.6% ) have unifocal(More)
OBJECTIVE To know the level of confidence of fifth year medical students in order to perform maneuvers in bladder catheterization and rectal examination before and after training with simulators. To be able to assess student satisfaction regarding the use of the simulation as a learning method. MATERIAL AND METHODS The study was conducted in the(More)
Emphysematous pyelonephritis is an acute necrotizing infection with gas in the kidney and perinephric space that carries a bad prognosis. Apart from its predisposing clinical entities, diabetes mellitus and immune-incompetence are quite common in patients with this infection. We report a case of a 53-year-old kidney transplant recipient diabetic male,(More)
OBJECTIVES We intend to assess the prognostic influence of surgical margins on the biochemical progression free survival (BPFS) in patients classified as pT2 after radical prostatectomy. METHODS We analyze a series of 1,132 T1-T2 patients with prostate cancer treated with radical prostatectomy between 1989-2009. PT3b, pT4 and patients with lymph node(More)
INTRODUCTION We evaluate the prognosis of patients with biochemical recurrence (BCR) treated with androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) and to determine the influential factors to castration resistance (CR) and death. METHODS From a series of 1310 patients with T1-T2 prostate cancer treated with radical prostatectomy between 1989 and 2012, 371 had BCR.(More)
OBJECTIVES Our aim is to design a predictive model of seminal vesicle involvement. using clinical data. METHODS We studied 1128 patients with clinically localized adenocarcinoma treated by radical prostatectomy (127 were pT3b). We identified (logistic regression) clinical variables related with pT3b. With the multivariate study influential variables a(More)
