Our goal is to describe our experience in the difficulties encountered during radical cystectomy for muscle invasive bladder cancer in patients with contemporary pelvic kidney. Two patients with muscle invasive bladder cancer and contemporary pelvic kidney were subjected to radical cystectomy and extended lymphadenectomy with conversion to an ileal pouch.(More)
INTRODUCTION Adrenal myelolipomas are relatively rare, non-functioning benign tumours composed of mature fatty and active hematopoietic elements. They can be asymptomatic, even if their size is massive. Diagnosis is relatively simple using ultrasound, computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging. Surgical resection through an extraperitoneal approach(More)
Relapsed urothelial cancer represents an unmet medical need. Vinflunine is a third-generation antimicrotubuline inhibitor and is currently the only approved drug for second-line treatment across the European Union. We conducted a retrospective analysis assessing the efficacy and safety of vinflunine in 71 Greek patients with relapsed urothelial cancer who(More)

The urethral narrowing does not allow the passage of the routinely used urological instruments and no previous reports have suggested alternate(More)
OBJECTIVE To examine the efficacy of a two staged treating strategy with the use of a non-permanent urethral ALLIUM(®) stent for the management of recurrent bladder neck stenosis and subsequently the use of an artificial sphincter AUS800(®) by AMS for the management of the incontinence. MATERIALS AND METHODS We progressively identified patients eligible(More)
INTRODUCTION There are only a few reports on laparoscopic pyeloplasty in kidney abnormalities and only one case for laparoscopic pyeloplasty in a duplicated system. Increasing experience in laparoscopic techniques allows proper treatment of such anomalies. However, its feasibility in difficult cases with altered kidney anatomy such as that of duplicated(More)
