Prediction of successful sperm retrieval in patients with nonobstructive azoospermia.
Serum FSH and serum inhibin B are useful markers for evaluation of the presence of sperm in patients with nonobstructive azoospermia and inhibin B has a high specificity when combined with serum F SH and their measurements can be helpful in all patients withNonobstructives azoOSpermia before decision making for sperm retrieval.
Male infertility and depression: a neglected problem in the Middle East.
Depression among Iranian infertile men is remarkably higher in comparison with Western countries, and Azaris, cigarette smokers, and individuals with low educational level are at higher risk of developing depression among infertiles men.
Relationship Between Perineural Invasion in Prostate Needle Biopsy Specimens and Pathologic Staging After Radical Prostatectomy
Although the presence of PNI in prostate biopsy is accompanied by higher surgical stages, PNI is not an appropriate independent factor in risk stratification.
Development, validation and comparison of two nomograms predicting prostate cancer at initial 12‐core biopsy
Our aim was to establish, validate and compare two nomograms in an Iranian population for the first time using clinical, laboratory and transrectal ultrasonography (TRUS) findings for predicting
Global, Regional and National Burden of Bladder Cancer, 1990 to 2016: Results from the GBD Study 2016
Although the number of bladder cancer incident cases is growing globally, the age standardized incidence and number of deaths are decreasing, as mirrored by a decreasing smoking contribution.
Toll‐like receptors: The role in bladder cancer development, progression and immunotherapy
Recent data about mechanisms played by TLRs in bladder cancer developments as well as therapeutic application of TLR agonists in cancer treatment are discussed.
HER2 gene amplification in patients with prostate cancer: Evaluating a CISH-based method.
The results of the present study suggested that, in patients without amplification of HER2, high levels of prostate-specific antigen or a high Gleason score were not significantly correlated with a high pathologic stage, and amplification levels of the HER2 gene were directly associated with pathological stage in patients with PCa.
Assessment of testicular perfusion prior to sperm extraction predicts success rate and decreases the number of required biopsies in patients with non-obstructive azoospermia
The data indicate that a semiquantitative, simplified power Doppler US assessment is capable of localizing areas containing viable sperm with the potential to direct biopsies to specific sites and subsequent decrease in the number of requiredBiopsies.
