OBJECTIVES To evaluate the activity of the therapeutic agents (tamsulosin and/or tolterodine) used to accelerate the expulsion of stones and to reduce the probable complications during observation of the medical treatment of distal ureteral stones to allow spontaneous passage. METHODS A total of 120 patients with distal ureteral stones were included in(More)
OBJECTIVE To demonstrate the effects of intravesical dexpanthenol use on bladder histology and lipid peroxidation in a chemical cystitis animal model. METHODS Thirty-five New Zealand rabbits were divided into 3 groups. Cystitis was conducted with transurethral intravesical hydrochloric acid instillation on the subjects in groups I and II. Then, Group I(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this study is to evaluate if there is a relation between platelet:lymphocyte ratio (PLR) and neutrophil lymphocyte ratio (NLR) values and tumour histology and spread in bladder cancer cases. MATERIALS AND METHODS Bladder cancer patients undergoing TUR-M operation, with histopathologically verified diagnosis, followed-up and(More)
Urinary stone disease is a common health problem and has an incidence of 4-20% worldwide [1]. Percutaneous nephrolithotripsy (PCNL), an efficient and reliable modality in the surgical management of stone disease, has been first described by Fernström and Johansson in 1976 [2]. The popularity of this minimally invasive technique has risen gradually during(More)
AIM To develop a prediction model based on artificial neural networks (ANN) for the treatment selection in vesicoureteral reflux (VUR). METHODS A total of 96 children with VUR (145 ureteric units (UU)) were treated at our institution during 2004-2006. An ANN based on quick propagation architecture was created with the commercially available software(More)
