PURPOSE Microdenervation of the spermatic cord is an effective treatment for men with intractable scrotal content pain. We evaluated a single center experience, analyzing patients in whom prior surgical attempts had failed to correct pain who subsequently underwent microdenervation of the spermatic cord. MATERIALS AND METHODS A retrospective chart review(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Renal colic not only leads to significant morbidity but imposes a financial burden on society in lost productivity and healthcare dollars spent. Both tamsulosin and nifedipine can facilitate spontaneous stone passage in the distal ureter and reduce the associated colic. We evaluated the physiologic effect of these agents on the distal(More)
INTRODUCTION Erectile dysfunction (ED) frequently accompanies Peyronie's disease (PD) and changes the therapeutic approach. AIM To evaluate a single-center experience with inflatable penile prostheses (IPP) in men with medication refractory ED and PD. METHODS Ninety men underwent placement of an IPP with straightening maneuvers as necessary to address(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Treating patients with renal-cell carcinoma (RCC) after previous retroperitoneal surgery (renal or adrenal) is technically challenging. We present our initial experience with laparoscopic renal interventions (LRI) after previous open retroperitoneal surgery in patients needing ipsilateral renal intervention. We report on feasibility,(More)
PURPOSE The possibility of a medical malpractice lawsuit is present in the practice of modern day medicine. A basic knowledge of trends, monetary values and types of claims involved in urological litigation is beneficial to the practicing surgeon. MATERIALS AND METHODS Cumulative analysis of claims data from 1985 to 2007 from more than 20 member companies(More)
INTRODUCTION Microdenervation of the spermatic cord (MDSC) has been demonstrated to be an effective treatment for men with intractable scrotal content pain. AIM This study evaluates the correlation between a positive response to a spermatic cord block with local anesthetic and the subsequent surgical outcome following MDSC. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES Pre-(More)
Penile shortening following radical prostatectomy and straightening procedures for Peyronie's disease can be a devastating and unwelcome side effect of these operations. The majority of men undergoing radical prostatectomy for prostate cancer have a measured loss of penile length, which also can occur in men with Peyronie's disease and may be exacerbated by(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE A well-known complication of percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) is pleural injury. Pneumothorax and hydrothorax sustained during PCNL may necessitate the placement of a chest tube. Current literature describes placement of standard chest tubes as well as small-bore catheters for management of hydrothorax sustained during PCNL. This(More)
An inguinal hernia is a commonly encountered surgical case, with multiple unusual contents being reported. We present an exceptionally rare case of an inguinal hernia. Computed tomography imaging of the 62-year-old male patient showed a large left inguinal hernia extending into the left scrotum that contained a duplicated left kidney. There was an(More)
