BACKGROUND Thanks to advancements in the endoscopic armamentarium, flexible ureteroscopy (fURS) has become a viable and attractive option for the treatment of renal stones because of its high stone-free rates (SFRs) and low morbidity. OBJECTIVE To describe our surgical technique for fURS, step-by-step, for the treatment of renal stones and to assess its(More)
To evaluate the influence of posterior musculofascial plate reconstruction (PR) on early return of continence after radical prostatectomy (RP); an updated systematic review of the literature. A systematic review of the literature was performed in June 2015, following the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses (PRISMA) statement(More)
A systematic review of the literature was performed to assess the relationship between the presence of perineural invasion (PNI) at prostate biopsy and extraprostatic extension (EPE) of prostate cancer. In August 2012, Medline, Embase, Scopus and Web of Science databases were searched. A "free-text" protocol using the terms "perineural invasion prostate(More)
A review of the literature was performed to summarize current evidence regarding the efficacy of topical immunotherapy and chemotherapy for upper urinary tract urothelial cell carcinoma (UUT-UCC) in terms of post-treatment recurrence rates. A Medline database literature search was performed in March 2012 using the terms upper urinary tract, urothelial(More)
In urology, the main use for the robotic technique has been in radical prostatectomy for prostate cancer. Robotic surgery for other organs, such as the kidneys and bladder, has been less explored. However, partial nephrectomy or radical nephroureterectomy can be difficult for inexperienced laparoscopic surgeons. The advent of the da Vinci robot, with(More)
Meckel's diverticulum is the most common congenital anomaly of the gastrointestinal tract, occurring in 1-3% of autoptic studies. It's remnant of the omphalomesenteric duct which connects the primitive gut to the yolk sac in early fetal life and the failure of obliteration may result in an omphalomesenteric fistula, an enterocyst, a fibrous band connecting(More)
OBJECTIVE To report the first performance of simultaneous bilateral percutaneous nephrolithotomy and flexible ureteroscopy carried out in tandem by 2 different surgeons in a patient with bilateral medium-sized renal calculi, describing step-by-step details of the surgical technique. MATERIALS AND METHODS A 46-year-old man, affected with(More)
UNLABELLED What's known on the subject? and What does the study add? Upper Urinary Tract (UUT) Transitional Cell Carcinoma (TCC) is an uncommon disease and represents approximately 5% of all urothelial carcinomas. We report our series on 73 patients treated with Kidney Sparing Surgery for UUT TCC. Good results have been achieved in terms of oncological(More)
