The current study investigated the neurotrophic and neuroprotective action of the complex formulation of conjugated equine estrogens (CEEs), the most frequently prescribed estrogen replacement therapy in the United States and the estrogen replacement therapy of the Women's Health Initiative. Morphologic analyses demonstrated that CEEs significantly(More)

INTRODUCTION Outcome data of penile traction therapy (PTT) for the acute phase (AP) of Peyronie's disease (PD) have not been specifically studied. AIM The aim of this study was to assess the effectiveness of a penile extender device for the treatment of patients with AP of PD. METHODS A total of 55 patients underwent PTT for 6 months and were compared(More)
Imaging is required if complication is suspected in acute pyelonephritis to assess the nature and extent of the lesions, and to detect underlying causes. The current imaging modality of choice in clinical practice is computed tomography. Because of associated radiation and potential nephrotoxicity, CEUS is an alternative that has been proven to be equally(More)
We report quantitative liver acoustic radiation force impulse (ARFI) elastographic findings in 2 cases of sinusoidal obstructive syndrome and liver contrast-enhanced sonographic features in one of these cases. To our knowledge, findings in this condition from these techniques have not been reported previously. Acoustic radiation force impulse elastography(More)
PURPOSE To describe the contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) features of liver and biliary lesions related to hepatic artery thrombosis in adult patients with orthotopic liver transplantation. METHODS Gray-scale ultrasound (US), Doppler US, and CEUS using a hexafluoride-based US contrast media were performed on a series of eight patients with liver(More)
