OBJECTIVE To compare the outcome of transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) and transurethral microwave thermotherapy (TUMT) on symptomatic benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). PATIENTS AND METHODS Patients with symptomatic BPH were treated by either TURP (32 patients; mean age 70 +/- 6 years) or TUMT (37 patients; mean age 67 +/- 9 years) and(More)
OBJECTIVES Prostate cancer (PC) is a highly lethal neoplastic disease affecting the physical, mental and social well-being of patients, i.e. their quality of life (QOL). Patients suffering from metastatic PC are faced with serious decisions regarding treatment strategies. Therefore, QOL information has become a crucial element of decision making in this(More)
To study home uroflowmetry and to compare this method to free or "traditional" uroflowmetry in the evaluation of the patient with symptomatic benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), and the relationship between the values of home uroflowmetry parameters and bladder outlet obstruction (BOO). Twenty-five patients (mean age, 67 years) with symptomatic BPH were(More)
The psychopathological, electrophysiological, and pathological features of a 58-year-old woman suffering from anaplastic lung carcinoma with paraneoplastic encephalopathy are presented. The predominant behavioral manifestation was a catatonic syndrome that was partially responsive to clonazepam. Although a variety of neurological, psychiatric, and other(More)
BACKGROUND Incontinence is a drawback after radical prostatectomy for prostate cancer. Several surgical methods to improve continence have been described however with contradictory results. OBJECTIVE To determine whether a modified surgical technique during laparoscopic radical prostatectomy (LRP) improves postoperative continence. PATIENTS AND METHODS(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate the accuracy of the radiopharmaceutical [(11) C]-acetate combined with positron emission tomography/computer tomography (acetate-PET/CT) in lymph node (LN) staging in newly diagnosed prostate cancer cases. A second aim was to evaluate the potential discriminative properties of acetate-PET/CT in clinical routine. PATIENTS AND METHODS(More)
OBJECTIVE To identify clinical variables useful in predicting outcome after transurethral microwave thermotherapy (TUMT) of the prostate with Prostasoft v. 2.0. PATIENTS AND METHODS Thirty-eight men with symptomatic benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) were treated with TUMT using the Prostatron device with the low-energy (v. 2.0) software. Before and 6(More)
AIM To prospectively validate 3 T magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) including diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) for preoperative lymph node (LN) staging in a clinical setting, in intermediate- and high-risk prostate cancer (PCa) patients using laparoscopic extended LN dissection (ePLND) as the reference standard.
