METHODS Urologists supplied 10 consecutive patients initiating ADT with a tool-kit (information brochure,(More)

The worldwide incidence of prostatic cancer derived from data published by the Union Internationale contre le Cancer and the International Red Cross Committee has been estimated to be 200,000 new cases each year. Cases occur predominantly in the USA (75 per 100,000) and in northern Europe (40 per 100,000), whereas the incidence is low in Asia. Comparison of(More)
We report a series of 13 infants with failed surgery for pyeloureteric junction (PUJ) obstruction. Failure was defined as the necessity for further surgery, either refashioning of the anastomosis or nephrectomy. These infants were part of a series of 306 with 322 PUJ. Of the 258 surgically treated infants, 232 (90%) had a post operative course without(More)
Retrograde ejaculation of Y-V plasty of the bladder neck performed during childhood appears to be a rare complication. Based on a case treated with success, the authors stress the need for non-aggressive treatment of bladder neck disease in children (endoscopic radial incisions). The procedure proposed by J.J. Abrahams for the treatment of retrograde(More)
The results of 40 consecutive patients who underwent bladder replacement following cystoprostatectomy for invasive bladder cancer are reported. A 30 cm detubularized ileal segment was used to make the neobladder. Mean follow-up was 19 months (over 2 years in 17 patients). All patients achieved diurnal continence. Nocturnal continence was obtained in 70.5%(More)
