OBJECTIVE Inflammation is a frequent histological finding in prostate biopsies, performed on men without prostatic malignancy or clinical prostatitis. We investigated the relationship between morphological parameters of inflammation in prostatic tissue and total serum prostate-specific antigen (PSA) and prostate-specific antigen density (PSAD) levels to(More)
Prostatic subclinical inflammation is associated with elevated serum prostate specific antigen (PSA) level when there is contact with and disruption of the glandular epithelium of the prostate. This aggressiveness of the inflammation was graded on a 4-point scale proposed by Irani (1). Patients with an elevated serum PSA level and no malignancy in their(More)
A case of a man with biphasic sarcomatoid carcinoma of the right kidney with chondrosarcomatous foci and with invasion of the pelvic mucosa and submucosa into the peripelvic adipose tissue is presented. In situ carcinoma of the urothelium of the right renal pelvis and proximal ureter was also noted. Comments on the nomenclature of malignant tumours with(More)
PURPOSE Not all children with primary nocturnal enuresis, an unstable detrusor and small bladder capacity can be treated successfully with anticholinergics and bladder drill. We report our use of bladder biofeedback in patients who did not respond to 3 months of such treatment. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 24 patients (median age 10.4 years) were(More)
Fracture of the penis is a rare surgical emergency. A case is presented where a 7.5 mHz ultrasonography probe was used to demonstrate the tear in the corpus cavernosum. Ultrasonography was able to identify the site and extent of the injury. Preoperative ultrasonography shows the best place for surgical incision and can be used to avoid negative surgical(More)
OBJECTIVE We previously reported a 70% cure rate for bladder biofeedback in children with primary nocturnal enuresis associated with small bladder capacity and detrusor instability. In this paper we report on bladder capacity and incidence of enuresis after 60 months of follow-up and discuss the role of decreased bladder capacity in nocturnal enuresis. (More)
OBJECTIVE Evaluation of bladder biofeedback in patients with sensory urgency refractory to medication and classical bladder training. METHODS In 12 such patients a non-electronic technique of bladder biofeedback was used. Ambulatory treatment sessions were done once a week for 4 weeks, as opposed to every 14 days, with a mean total treatment period of 8(More)
Inguinal or inguinoscrotal herniation of the bladder is not uncommon and has been estimated to comprise 1% to 3% of all inguinal hernias. The appearance of hernias on ultrasonography, intravenous pyelography, cystography, and computed tomography has been described previously but no instance of correlation with magnetic resonance (MR) imaging has been(More)
