OBJECTIVE To increase the diagnostic sensitivity of standard MAG3 diuretic renal scans for ureteropelvic junction obstruction (UPJO) by exploring the utility of an alternative measurement P40, the percentage of maximal tracer counts present at 40 minutes. MATERIALS AND METHODS Patients with strong clinical and anatomic evidence for UPJO may have a normal(More)

AIMS To determine whether cabergoline increases the potential for orgasm in men with orgasmic disorder. METHODS A retrospective chart review of men treated(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate, in men presenting with recurrent pregnancy loss (RPL), the prevalence of sperm autosome and sex chromosome aneuploidy. DESIGN Retrospective study. SETTING Male infertility clinic. PATIENT(S) A total of 140 men with RPL provided semen samples, and five normozoospermic controls provided 140 semen samples for comparison.(More)
PURPOSE We compared satisfaction and treatment efficacy in men with symptomatic hypogonadism who received clomiphene citrate or testosterone supplementation therapy. MATERIALS AND METHODS Men treated with clomiphene citrate, or testosterone injections or gels for symptomatic hypogonadism (total testosterone less than 300 ng/dl) reported satisfaction with(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the association between the presence of sperm in the vasal fluid during vasectomy reversal (VR) and postoperative patency. METHODS We performed a systematic review and meta-analysis of the English-language literature reporting on the association between the presence of sperm in the intraoperative vasal fluid (ie, whole or parts vs(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the prevalence of thrombotic events and all-cause mortality in men older than 65 years with hypogonadism treated with testosterone therapy (TST). PATIENTS AND METHODS We retrospectively reviewed the charts of 217 hypogonadal men >65 years. We compared men who received TST (n = 153) to hypogonadal men (n = 64) who did not receive(More)
