In this report we describe four cases in which prosthetic reinforcement allowed successful femoropopliteal bypass grafting using highly varicose saphenous veins while preserving normal endothelium. No thrombosis(More)

To assess the usefulness of an experimental model of ureteropelvic junction (UPJ) obstruction designed to facilitate subsequent percutaneous surgery, a right UPJ obstruction was created in 10 pigs by an open retroperitoneal surgical approach. With the pig in the left lateral decubitus position, a 0.038-inch Terumo guidewire was inserted via a 1-cm(More)
OBJECTIVE To define the diagnostic and therapeutic approach to intradiverticular bladder tumour.
