OBJECTIVE Virtually all patients with myelomeningocele suffer from neurogenic disorder of the bladder. Problems with incontinence are common and there is also a risk of deterioration of renal function. The aim of the present study was to determine the long-term urological fate of this patient group. PATIENTS AND METHODS Twelve young adults with(More)
A randomized prospective double-blind study of the analgesic effect of 50 mg. intravenous indomethacin, a prostaglandin synthesis inhibitor, was done on 47 consecutive patients with acute ureteral colic. The placebo used was 5 mg. intravenous riboflavin because of the same color as indomethacin. Indomethacin provided complete relief in 78 per cent of the(More)
PURPOSE To derive new formulae for the calculation of single sample clearance of the contrast medium iohexol and to compare the formulae to a selection of existing single sample clearance formulae derived for the calculation of 51Cr-EDTA and 99mTc-DTPA clearance. MATERIAL AND METHODS Glomerular filtration rate (GFR) was calculated from total plasma(More)
OBJECTIVE This article reviews the first 4 years of operation of the National Penile Cancer Register (NPECR) in Sweden. The register was set up to gain knowledge about the incidence and primary treatment of penile cancer, including the use of and the frequency of lymph node dissection. The register elicits treatment disparities between regions, and aims to(More)
Perforation of the small bowel during SWL is reported for the first time. The patient was treated in the prone position for a ureteral stone with 4500 shockwaves. There were no underlying or predisposing factors for the damage to the gut with the exception of the large number of shockwaves at a high energy setting. It is concluded that SWL in the prone(More)
Forty-four patients with squamous cell carcinoma of the penis stage T1-T2, N0 were either treated surgically (n = 19) or with a combination of irradiation and bleomycin (n = 25). The overall actuarial survival rate was 80% at 3 years, 77% at 5 years and 60% at 10 years. The result of irradiation treatment combined with bleomycin was in stage N0 equivalent(More)
We report a case of renal cell carcinoma within a simple renal cyst in the lower pole of the right kidney. Excretory urography showed a mass and ultrasonography revealed multiple renal cysts with a solid component arising from the wall in 1. This finding also was visualized by computerized tomography. Analysis of the cystic fluid showed a high cholesterol(More)
We treated 25 patients with ureteral colic and urographically verified stones with 50 mg. indomethacin intravenously. Pain was relieved completely in 17 patients, while in 8 incomplete or no pain relief was achieved after the infusion of indomethacin. Patients completely relieved of pain had significantly higher levels of antidiuretic hormone in plasma(More)
