OBJECTIVES To investigate the expression of sex-specific hormone receptors in normal bladder urothelium and urothelial carcinomas (UCs) of the bladder, and to analyze clinicopathological features and survival outcomes according to receptor expression. METHODS We evaluated the clinical data and tumor specimens of 139 patients with bladder cancer (BC). In(More)

PURPOSE The aim of this study was to evaluate inflammation parameters and assess the utility of the neutrophil- lymphocyte ratio (NLR) as a simple and readily available predictor for clinical disease activity in patients with nenign prostate hyperplasia BPH. We also aimed to investigate the relationship between inflammatory parameters with α-blocker therapy(More)
UNLABELLED What's known on the subject? and What does the study add? Milroy reported 84% success at a mean of 4.5 years follow-up by usage of a permanently implantable "urolume" spent in 1993. Memotherm was developed later, especially for urologic use. Our study is one of the largest in this urea, with a high number of patients and a long follow-up period.(More)
The aim of our study was to evaluate whether neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) is a predictor of disease progression and recurrence in patients with primary non-muscle-invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC). This was a prospective study of 86 patients with newly diagnosed NMIBC. The patients were classified by the number of points assigned by the European(More)
The aim of this study was to compare the complications of standard and totally tubeless percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) based on the modified Clavien complication grading system. We retrospectively evaluated the complications of 290 consecutive patients who had undergone standard or totally tubeless PCNL at four institutes between January 2010 and(More)
PURPOSE To report our experience with patients who have suspected testicular masses (STM) managed by ex vivo technique of testicular sparing surgery (TSS) after radical orchiectomy. MATERIALS AND METHODS Between 2007-2011 years, 10 patients with STM were evaluated by history, physical examination, testicular ultrasound and serum tumor markers. STM were(More)
