W e have established the Developmental Genome Anatomy Project (DGAP; //dgap.harvard.edu) to take advantage of the unique opportunity to locate genes of developmental importance provided by apparently balanced chromosomal rearrangements associated with phenotypic abnormalities. By positional cloning at or near the breakpoints, we aim to identify the crucial(More)
Gonadotropin-releasing hormone stimulation testing was performed on 104 adolescent males with a unilateral left varicocele to determine the frequency of testicular dysfunction in this group of patients. An abnormal test result was noted in approximately 30 percent of varicocele patients. We believe that an abnormal test result indicates a higher risk for(More)
A subfertile male with a history of left cryptorchism underwent scrotal ultrasound that revealed stippled calcifications, without associated mass, in the right testicle. Six months later, while on a regimen of clomiphene citrate, a testicular tumor became palpable. This was sonographically confirmed to be surrounding the calcifications. Testicular(More)
We have observed a transient renal insufficiency in newborns associated with ultrasonographic finding of hyperechoic renal pyramids. This condition rapidly resolves, coinciding with both normalization of the renal ultrasound and the occurrence of significant proteinuria. Others have recognized a similar state of oliguria and cylindruria associated with a(More)
Simultaneous measurements of left and right scrotal, and axillary skin temperatures were recorded in 58 consecutive adolescents (mean age 14.4 years) with a grade II-III left sided varicocele, and nine control adolescents without genital pathology (mean age 15.7 years). Left and right testicular volumes were determined in both groups. The adolescents with a(More)
Background:We used data from the Michigan Urological Surgery Improvement Collaborative (MUSIC) to investigate the use of adjuvant and salvage radiotherapy (ART, SRT) among patients with high-risk pathology following radical prostatectomy (RP).Methods:For patients with pT3a disease or higher and/or positive surgical margins, we examined post-RP radiotherapy(More)
Endoluminal sonography using the IVUS is a minimally invasive procedure performed using a flexible 6.2F catheter with a 20 megahertz transducer that can easily be passed endoscopically to image the urethra, bladder, ureter and renal pelvis. In the current study, a woman patient in her third trimester of pregnancy with a renal pelvic stone and persistent(More)
Between 1977 and 1989, an artificial urinary sphincter was implanted in 57 female patients. In 6 patients inadvertent intraoperative injuries to pelvic organs occurred, 5 of whom had a history of an average 2.8 previous operations for incontinence (range 2 to 4). The remaining patient was a 16-year-old girl with primary internal sphincter incompetence. All(More)
