To describe the clinical and pathological characteristics of adrenal lymphangioma (AL) and share our experiences of the treatment of AL with retroperitoneal laparoscopic surgery. All patients pathologically diagnosed with AL were examined. The clinical and pathological characteristics, process of diagnosis, and preparation and treatment of all patients,(More)
Cryosurgery (CS) has been used on patients with clinically localized PCa for more than 10 years. However, clinical studies evaluating its effectiveness and safety have reported conflicting results. This systematic assessment was performed to obtain comprehensive evidence regarding the potential benefits and safety of CS compared with those of radiotherapy(More)
INTRODUCTION Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a very common complication after radical prostatectomy. COX-2-10aa-PGIS is a newly engineered protein with COX-2 and prostacyclin synthase activities that converts arachidonic acid directly to prostacyclin (prostaglandin I2 [PGI2]). PGI2 is a potent smooth muscle relaxant. AIM The purpose of this study was to(More)
ARHI is a maternally imprinted tumor suppressor gene that maps to a site on chromosome 1p31 where loss of heterozygosity has been observed in 40% of human breast and ovarian cancers. ARHI is expressed in normal ovarian and breast epithelial cells, but ARHI expression is lost in a majority of ovarian and breast cancers. Expression of ARHI from the paternal(More)
ARHI, an imprinted putative tumor suppressor gene, encodes a M(r) 26,000 GTP-binding protein that is 60% homologous to ras and rap but has a dramatically different function. ARHI expression is down-regulated in a majority of breast and ovarian cancers. Using a dual adenovirus system, we have reexpressed ARHI in ovarian cancer and breast cancer cells that(More)

Generally, hypoxia is a normal physiological condition in the flaccid penis, which is interrupted by regular nocturnal erections in men with normal erectile function. [1] Lack of spontaneous and nocturnal erections after radical prostatectomy due to neuropraxia results in persistent hypoxia of cavernosal tissue, which leads to apoptosis and degeneration of(More)
INTRODUCTION Erectile dysfunction (ED) after radical prostatectomy (RP) is a very common condition. Prostacyclin (PGI(2)) is a prostaglandin with properties of vasodilation and anti-platelet aggregation. SuperEnzyme is a newly engineered protein with PGI(2) synthase activity that converts arachidonic acid directly to PGI(2). Transfection of SuperEnzyme into(More)
