The records of 5,882 live male births were reviewed to ascertain the incidence and nature of complications following neonatal circumcision. Approximately one half of the patients were circumcised with the Gomco and half with the Plastibell. The incidence of complications was 0.2%; most frequent were hemmorrhage, infection, and trauma, there were no deaths;(More)
We describe a technique that allows us to quantify intracorporeal penile venous resistance in papaverine-induced erections. By increasing intracorporeal pressure to greater than the mean arterial pressure by cavernous perfusion with Ringer's lactate solution we can control and measure cavernous flow and pressure, and, therefore, calculate venous resistance.(More)
To assess the etiologic role of C. trachomatis and other micro-organisms in "idiopathic" epididymitis, 23 men underwent microbiologic studies, including cultures of epididymal aspirates in 16. Eleven of 13 men under the age of 35 years had C. trachomatis infection whereas eight of 10 over 35 had coliform urinary-tract infection. Cultures of epididymal(More)
A computer-assisted review identified 184 patients with genitourinary tract injuries among 5,400 hospitalized for trauma. Particular attention was directed to the controversial groups of patients with blunt renal and posterior urethral injuries. Management of renal injuries was based on clinical criteria. Subsequent renal exploration was necessary in only 1(More)
There were 50 patients with acute epididymitis who were evaluated prospectively by history, examination and microbiologic studies, including cultures for aerobes, anaerobes, Neisseria gonorrhoeae, Chlamydia trachomatis and Ureaplasma urealyticum. Escherichia coli was the predominant pathogen isolated from the urine of men more than 35 years old, while(More)
Of 34,081 deliveries in a 12-year period 20 were complicated by urinary calculi during the pregnancy. Of the 20 deliveries 3 required intervention either during pregnancy or immediately postpartum. There were no maternal deaths and only 1 stillborn secondary to erythroblastosis. Analysis of symptoms, findings, procedures and outcome is presented in this(More)
