Preclinical comparison of superpulse thulium fiber laser and a holmium:YAG laser for lithotripsy
Purpose A superpulse (500 W peak power) thulium fiber laser operating at a 1940 nm wavelength, suitable for lithotripsy, has recently been developed. The goal of this study was to compare stoneExpand
Thulium-fiber laser for lithotripsy: first clinical experience in percutaneous nephrolithotomy
Purpose To evaluate the efficacy and safety of thulium-fiber laser (TFL) in laser lithotripsy during percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL). Methods Patients with stones < 30 mm were prospectivelyExpand
Prognostic Value of PD‐1 and PD‐L1 Expression in Patients with High Grade Upper Tract Urothelial Carcinoma
Purpose: We investigated the prognostic value of PD‐1 and PD‐L1 expression in patients with high grade upper tract urothelial carcinoma. Materials and Methods: Tissue microarrays of 423 patientsExpand
Postoperative Nomogram for Relapse‐Free Survival in Patients with High Grade Upper Tract Urothelial Carcinoma
Purpose: We developed a prognostic nomogram for patients with high grade urothelial carcinoma of the upper urinary tract after extirpative surgery. Materials and Methods: Clinical data were availableExpand
A Randomized Trial Comparing The Learning Curve of 3 Endoscopic Enucleation Techniques (HoLEP, ThuFLEP, and MEP) for BPH Using Mentoring Approach-Initial Results.
OBJECTIVE To assess the differences in the learning curve associated with different techniques of endoscopic enucleation of the prostate. MATERIALS AND METHODS Ninety patients were randomlyExpand
Multiple application of three-dimensional soft kidney models with localized kidney cancer: A pilot study
Aim: To evaluate the effectiveness of three-dimensional printing application in urology for localized renal cancer treatment using three-dimensional printed soft models. Materials and methods: TheExpand
Impact of endoscopic enucleation of the prostate with thulium fiber laser on the erectile function
BackgroundThe impact of number of endoscopic enucleation of the prostate techniques (holmium laser enucleation - HoLEP for example) on erectile function have already been investigated. However, theExpand
Need for upper urinary tract stenting in cases of ureteral orifice injury during laser enucleation of the prostate
IntroductionBenign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) can be associated with marked intravesical protrusion, placing ureteral orifices at risk for injury during bladder outlet procedures.AimTo determineExpand
INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES: Recently, SuperPulse Thulium (Tm) fiber laser (NPO IRE-Polus) with wavelength of 1.94 µm was introduced as a promising lithotripsy tool. In preclinical study, we haveExpand
[Monopolar transurethral enucleation of benign prostatic hyperplasia. Our initial experience].
INTRODUCTION The choice of surgical treatment in patients with BPH is one of the most discussed issues in urology. In recent years, the surgical treatment of prostates of medium and large sizes byExpand
