PURPOSE We studied the patient risk factors that promote urethroplasty failure. MATERIALS AND METHODS Records of patients who underwent urethroplasty at the University of California, San Francisco Medical Center between 1995 and 2004 were reviewed. Cox proportional hazards regression analysis was used to identify multivariate predictors of urethroplasty(More)
PURPOSE Male urethral stricture disease accounts for a significant number of hospital admissions and health care expenditures. Although much research has been completed on treatment for urethral strictures, fewer studies have addressed the treatment of strictures in men with recurrent stricture disease after failed prior urethroplasty. We examined outcome(More)
PURPOSE Injection of mitomycin C may increase the success of transurethral incision of the bladder neck for the treatment of bladder neck contracture. We evaluated the efficacy of mitomycin C injection across multiple institutions. MATERIALS AND METHODS Data on all patients who underwent transurethral incision of the bladder neck with mitomycin C from(More)
OBJECTIVES To describe the surgical technique and outcomes for perineal urethrostomy. We sought to identify factors that predicted surgery failure within our patient cohort and to describe key aspects of the operation aimed at preservation of the dorsal urethral plate and longitudinal blood supply within the urethra. METHODS We reviewed our prospectively(More)
BACKGROUND This study aimed to analyze characteristics and outcomes of gunshot wounds to the lower urinary tract at our Level I trauma center. Our hypothesis is that gunshot wounds to the lower urinary tract have characteristic bullet trajectories, injury patterns, and associated injuries. METHODS Our prospective trauma database was composed of reviewed(More)
PURPOSE Persistent unexplained vaginal discharge or bleeding in the pediatric population may be the only manifestation of a serious underlying medical or social problem. Therefore, these symptoms require careful and complete evaluation to identify the primary pathology accurately. We retrospectively reviewed charts of patients who presented for evaluation(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the short- to medium-term outcomes after artificial urinary sphincter (AUS) placement from a large, multi-institutional, prospective, follow-up study. We hypothesize that along with radiation, patients with any history of a direct surgery to the urethra will have higher rates of eventual AUS explantation for erosion and/or infection.(More)
PURPOSE Prostate cancer treatment results in several sexually related side effects beyond the well studied erectile dysfunction. Climacturia (leakage of urine during orgasm) has been reported after prostatectomy but studies have been limited by multiple factors. In this study we examine the prevalence, causes and impact on orgasm function of climacturia(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the associations of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) use with risk of erectile dysfunction (ED), considering the indications for NSAID use. PATIENTS AND METHODS We analysed data from 4 726 men in the placebo arm of the Prostate Cancer Prevention Trial (PCPT) without evidence of ED at baseline. Incident ED was defined as(More)
