To assess continence and erectile function (EF) recovery of extended pelvic lymph node dissection (ePLND) versus limited PLND (lPLND) after bilateral nerve-sparing radical prostatectomy (BNSRP). Consecutive prostate cancer (PCa) patients undergoing BNSRP were stratified according to D’Amico into two groups: low-risk-PCa lPLND (obturator) and(More)
A new experimental model was employed to investigate alterations of cerebral metabolic activity in rats subjected to extensive subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH). The hemorrhages were produced in anesthetized animals by inserting 0.37 ml fresh autologous arterial blood into the subarachnoid space. Rats that underwent sham operations received subarachnoid(More)
Regional brain tissue catecholamine concentrations were measured in 5 control rats and in 10 rats 72 hours after experimental subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH). Catecholamine levels were determined in the cerebral hemispheres, brain stem, and cerebellum of each animal using a radioenzymatic assay. Three days after SAH, the tissue concentration of norepinephrine(More)
Norepinephrine (NE) was assayed in rat brains 72 h after the creation of an experimental subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH). NE in the cerebral hemispheres was found to increase by 64% when compared to controls. NE in the brainstem and cerebellum was unchanged. The kinetics of hemispheric NE metabolism were then studied in control and SAH rats. SAH caused a(More)
For question of sex dependency 24 h-urine samples of 165 patients with recurrent idiopathic calcium urolithiasis (100 men, 65 women) were obtained during regular diet and analyzed for differences in excretion rates of lithogenic and inhibitory constituents. Results were compared to values of 43 apparently healthy subjects (31 men, 12 women). Male stone(More)
Patients with recurrent non-infectious calcium urolithiasis were classified metabolically (122 patients). When the magnesium excretion was measured in the metabolic subgroups, a subset of patients (21.6%) could be identified with marked hypomagnesuria as the only metabolic abnormality. A significantly reduced rate of magnesium excretion was found in these(More)
