PURPOSE Bladder tumors are the second most common tumors of the genitourinary system. Approximately 80% of patients initially present with a superficial lesion, which is treated with transurethral resection. Although transurethral resection is a standard procedure, it is not morbidity-free. We assessed the early complications of transurethral resection for(More)
OBJECTIVES To review our experience in 14 patients who underwent supravesical urinary diversion maintaining their defunctionalized bladder in situ. METHODS A variety of pathological entities indicated surgery, including neurogenic bladder, urinary tuberculosis (with severely contracted bladder), interstitial cystitis, and retroperitoneal fibrosis.

This study was performed to assess the influence of age, sex, smoking, and contraceptive use on CYP2A6 activity. In the metabolism of caffeine, the conversion of 1,7 dimethylxanthine (17X) to 1,7 dimethiylurate (17U) is catalyzed primarily by CYP2A6. CYP2A6 phenotype was determined by the urinary ratio 17U:17X in the interval of 4-5 h after caffeine intake(More)
A comparative retrospective study was performed on 100 patients who had undergone transurethral resection of a superficial bladder tumor (Ta-Tl) with no associated carcinoma in situ (group 1) and 100 patients who had undergone simultaneous transurethral resection of a superficial bladder tumor (Ta-Tl), with no associated carcinoma in situ, and benign(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the usefulness of balloon percutaneous dilatation as a starting treatment technique of ureteral stenosis in kidney transplant recipients. PATIENTS AND METHODS A total of 472 kidney transplants have been performed at our center between August 1981 and January 1997. The coexistence of high creatinine values and urinary tract dilatation(More)
OBJECTIVES Bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG) has demonstrated both the efficacy in patients with carcinoma in situ (CIS) of the bladder and the penetration in the prostate (granulomas) after endovesical treatment. We treated patients with CIS of the prostatic urethra with bladder instillations of BCG without previous transurethral resection to assess the local(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate the indications for urodynamics studies (UDS) previous to renal transplantation (RT) and the results of bladder cycling (BC), performed in selected cases. METHODS Among 475 RT, 33 patients (6.9%) required UDS according our protocol. Indications were: (1) low urinary tract symptoms (LUTS); (2) defunctionalized bladder (DB), and (3)(More)
G3pT1 bladder cancer has traditionally been regarded as a superficial tumour with a high risk of progression. We have studied 37 patients with initial G3pT1 bladder tumours treated between January 1981 and December 1985. They were divided into 2 groups according to the association with carcinoma in situ (Cis) at the time of diagnosis. Clinical behaviour was(More)
We reviewed 623 patients who underwent trans-urethral resection of the prostate (TURP) and 18 (2.8%) developed bladder neck contracture (BNC), in most cases symptomatic. Sclerosis appeared between 2 and 100 months after TURP (mean 9 months, median 19 months). Most were small prostates at the time of resection, with a mean resected weight of 10.5 g (SD 5.9),(More)
