OBJECTIVES HistoScanning™ (HS) is a method of ecographic diagnosis of prostate cancer. We analyze the effectiveness of the HS realization prior to the biopsies for the prostate adenocarcinoma diagnosis. MATERIAL AND METHODS From August to October 2012 we have carried out a study with HS prior to the biopsies in 32 patients. In all cases sextants(More)
OBJECTIVES To analyze the surgical and oncologic outcome of prospective experience with laparoscopic partial nephrectomy. We describe the surgical technique and mid term oncological results achieved. MATERIAL AND METHODS 60 patients were operated with this technique between June 2005 and June 2009. The mean age of patients was 58.9 [38-77] years, being 40(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the clinical utility of using the real-time reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) to quantify prostate-specific antigen (PSA) mRNA in peripheral blood samples from patients with prostate cancer as a predictor of extraprostatic extension of the disease and to assess any correlations with known predictive markers of(More)
BACKGROUND Laparoendoscopic single-site (LESS) radical prostatectomy (RP) has been performed through different approaches. A new DuoRotate manual system developed by Richard Wolf (KeyPort; Richard Wolf GmbH, Knittlingen, Germany) can be applied to RP. OBJECTIVES Our aim was to describe the surgical technique and report early outcomes of KeyPort LESS-RP to(More)
INTRODUCTION Umbilical laparoendoscopic single-site (LESS) surgery represents an excellent alternative to laparoscopic or robotic multiport surgery. LESS surgery offers faster recovery, less postoperative pain and optimal cosmetic results. The reusable nature of its instruments also has significant economic advantages. PATIENT AND METHOD We present a(More)
AIM To analyze the surgical, functional, and oncological results of radical laparoscopic salvage prostatectomy in local postradiotherapy recurrence. PATIENTS AND METHODS Between May 2005 and April 2007, we treated nine patients with radical laparoscopic salvage prostatectomy. Five patients had received prior treatment with brachytherapy and the other four(More)
INTRODUCTION to analyse the results achieved to treat iliac or pelvic ureteric stricture using laparoscopic reimplantation of the ureter in a psoic bladder. MATERIAL AND METHOD in a four-year period, we performed laparoscopic ureteral reimplantation in a psoic bladder in 6 patients (right/left 1:1; male/female 1:2; mean age 59.2 years, range 47-87). In 4(More)
OBJECTIVE To describe the profile of the overactive bladder (OAB) patient on treatment with flexible-dose antimuscarinic treatment in daily clinical practice. METHODS This was an observational, retrospective and multicenter study, carried out at 88 public and private hospitals. Adult patients diagnosed with OAB who initiated flexible-dose antimuscarinic(More)
OBJECTIVE To carry out cost-effectiveness analysis from the Spanish National Health System perspective, of treating overactive bladder (OAB), in newly diagnosed patients with two flexible doses of fesoterodine in routine clinical practice. PATIENTS AND METHODS Economic evaluation of flexible-dose fesoterodine in newly diagnosed patients, including two(More)
PURPOSE To analyze the effectiveness of simplified urethropexy in the evolution of urinary incontinence after radical laparoscopic prostatectomy. PATIENTS AND METHODS Between January 2007 and December 2008, 104 patients were included in a randomized trial to assess the effectiveness of simplified urethropexy. The simplified urethropexy technique was(More)
