BACKGROUND Oncologic outcomes in men with radiation-recurrent prostate cancer (PCa) treated with salvage radical prostatectomy (SRP) are poorly defined. OBJECTIVE To identify predictors of biochemical recurrence (BCR), metastasis, and death following SRP to help select patients who may benefit from SRP. DESIGN, SETTING, AND PARTICIPANTS This is a(More)
PURPOSE To describe the safety and efficacy of prostatic artery embolization (PAE) with spherical microparticles to treat lower urinary tract symptoms associated with benign prostatic hyperplasia in patients with prostate volume > 90 g. MATERIALS AND METHODS This prospective, single-center, single-arm study was conducted in 35 patients with prostate(More)
PURPOSE The supine position has potential advantages over the prone position for percutaneous nephrolithotripsy but it is neglected by most urologists. We analyzed the efficacy and safety of percutaneous nephrolithotripsy with the patient in a modified supine position. MATERIALS AND METHODS In a prospective study 88 consecutive patients underwent(More)
PURPOSE The impact of pelvic floor muscle training on the recovery of urinary continence after radical prostatectomy is still controversial. We tested the effectiveness of biofeedback-pelvic floor muscle training in improving urinary incontinence in the 12 months following radical prostatectomy. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 73 patients who underwent(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the ability of the Guy's stone score (GS) to predict the success rates and complications on the basis of the computed tomographic (CT) scan findings for renal stones treated with percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL). METHODS From 2008 to 2012, a total of 147 consecutive patients (155 renal units) who underwent PCNL in a completely(More)
This study was designed to describe the clinical, laboratorial, and urodynamic findings of prostatic artery embolization (PAE) in patients with urinary retention due to benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). A prospective study of 11 patients with urinary retention due to BPH was conducted. Patients underwent physical examination, prostate specific antigen(More)
Symptomatic benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) typically occurs in the sixth and seventh decades, and the most frequent obstructive urinary symptoms are hesitancy, decreased urinary stream, sensation of incomplete emptying, nocturia, frequency, and urgency. Various medications, specifically 5-α-reductase inhibitors and selective α-blockers, can decrease the(More)
To compare clinical and urodynamic results of transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) to original and PErFecTED prostate artery embolization (PAE) methods for benign prostatic hyperplasia. We prospectively randomized 30 patients to receive TURP or original PAE (oPAE) and compared them to a cohort of patients treated by PErFecTED PAE, with a minimum(More)
OBJECTIVE MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small noncoding regulatory RNAs (19-25 nucleotides) that play a major role in regulation of gene expression. They are responsible for the control of fundamental cellular processes that has been reported to be involved in human tumorigenesis. The characterization of miRNA profiles in human tumors is crucial for the(More)
The objective was to describe the last 10 years’ experience of the diagnosis and treatment of renal, perinephric, and mixed abscesses in an academic reference center. The medical records of 65 patients with renal, perinephric, and mixed abscesses treated at our hospital from January 1992 to December 2002 were reviewed. The data collected included(More)
