METHODS Out of a total of 608 middle-aged adults who visited local health centers, 424 subjects (104 male, 320 female) who had not been diagnosed with hypertension,(More)
PURPOSE To identify incidence and risk factors of recurrence after discontinuation of successful antimuscarinic therapy in patients with overactive bladder (OAB). MATERIALS AND METHODS This was a prospective, multicenter trial. Patients who had antimuscarinic agents for more than 12 weeks and showed successful response were enrolled. Successful response(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the efficacy between SKI306X and Diclofenac by using generalized estimating equations (GEE) methodology in the analysis of correlated bivariate binary outcome data in Osteoarthritis (OA) diseases. METHODS A randomized, double-blind, active comparator controlled, non-inferiority clinical trial was conducted at 5 institutions in Korea(More)
OBJECTIVES To introduce a new surgical mentorship, the "hand-grab navigated technique," to shorten the learning curve for Holmium laser enucleation of the prostate. METHODS Patients with benign prostatic hyperplasia were managed at six institutions with Holmium laser enucleation of the prostate. An analysis was done in the 200 of these patients (the set(More)
