The appearance of the prostatic fossa on transrectal ultrasound (TRUS) scans obtained after radical retropubic prostatectomy (RRP) was studied in 25 patients believed to have no tumor on the basis of their level of serum prostate-specific antigen (PSA) (< or = 0.4 ng/mL). The profile of the vesicourethral anastomosis (VUA) in the midsagittal plane was(More)
The anatomic appearance of the prostatic fossa on transrectal ultrasound (TRUS) scans obtained after radical retropubic prostatectomy (RRP) for carcinoma was studied in 16 patients in whom local recurrence was suspected on the basis of rising serum prostate-specific antigen (PSA) levels above 0.4 ng/mL, negative pelvic computed tomographic scans, and(More)
The role of tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-α) in wound healing is unclear and the results are contradictory. In vivo, TNF-α induces vessel growth, an important step in promoting wound healing. However, a reduced amount of collagen, hydroxyproline, and granulation tissue was found after TNF-α treatment. It is also unknown if this is a direct effect, by(More)
Cholesterol 7 alpha-hydroxylase activity was measured in livers from ovariectomized baboons fed a high cholesterol high saturated fat diet and maintained in four groups: untreated controls, estrogen (100 micrograms/g per week), progesterone (3 mg/kg per day) and estrogen + progesterone. Estrogen treatment alone increased hepatic 7 alpha-hydroxylase activity(More)
Lymphangiomas are rare benign tumors. In most cases, resection is necessary to obtain a precise histopathological analysis. There are capillary, cavernous and cystic lymphangiomas. The therapy of choice is a complete excision. Recurrence has been reported after incomplete resection. We present the case of a 45-year-old man with a lymphangioma of the omentum(More)
