A case of adenosquamous carcinoma arising in the background of disseminated pelvic endometriosis presented as unilateral hydronephrosis and a polypoid intraluminal ureteral mass. This is the first case of a malignancy arising in endometriosis presenting as an obstructive ureteral mass. The patient had a history of total hysterectomy and bilateral(More)
OBJECTIVES Incontinent ileovesicostomy is an alternative form of urinary management applied to patients with neurogenic vesical dysfunction who are either unable or unwilling to perform clean intermittent self-catheterization or assisted catheterization. We review our operative results, urodynamic data, and complications observed in patients who underwent(More)
Once the regional lymph nodes become involved in prostate carcinoma, 85% of patients develop distant metastases within 5 years, and metastatic disease is difficult to treat. We have investigated the effect of systemic interleukin 2 (IL-2) treatment on metastatic prostate carcinoma using a xenograft tumor model. Cells from a PC-3/IF cell line, produced by(More)
PURPOSE We addressed whether salvage of upper pole renal units in comparison to partial nephrectomy affects differential renal function in patients with a duplicated obstructed upper pole. MATERIALS AND METHODS We retrospectively reviewed the records of all children who underwent surgery for a unilateral obstructed duplicated kidney at our institution(More)
The treatment of prostate carcinoma is dependent on the stage of the disease. Patients who present with clinically localized cancer or locally advanced tumors can be potentially cured by radical prostatectomy, radiation, and hormonal therapy. However, disease progression can occur in 30-50% of patients diagnosed with clinically localized cancer. The bone is(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE To determine if patients with advanced malignancies and resultant ureteral obstruction who are managed with chronic ureteral stent changes have adequate preservation of renal function and an acceptable rate of complications. PATIENTS AND METHODS A retrospective review was conducted on 28 patients who had a stent to relieve ureteral(More)
PURPOSE To compare bacterial adhesion to hydrogel-coated and uncoated ureteral stents. The antimicrobial activity of coated and uncoated stents treated with commonly used antibiotic solutions also was evaluated. MATERIALS AND METHODS Hydrogel coated and uncoated stent segments were dipped in different antibiotic solutions (ciprofloxacin, gentamicin, and(More)
