PURPOSE We report our initial experience with robot-assisted laparoscopic neurovascular bundle (NVB) sparing radical cystoprostatectomy (RALRC), bilateral extended lymph node dissection (BELND) with intracorporeal Studer pouch construction for invasive bladder cancer. PATIENTS AND METHODS After initially performing >50 cases of robot-assisted laparoscopic(More)
PURPOSE Excision repair cross-complementation group 1 enzyme (ERCC1) plays a key role in the removal of platinum induced DNA adducts and cisplatin resistance. Prognostic role of ERCC1 expression in the neoadjuvant setting in bladder cancer has not been reported before. We evaluated the prognostic role of ERCC1 expression in bladder cancer receiving(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate outcomes of robotic partial nephrectomy (RAPN) procedures. At two centers, 42 patients underwent RAPN. Radius, Exo/Endophytic, Nearness, Anterior/Posterior, Location (R.E.N.A.L.) nephrometry and PADUA scores of patients were calculated by computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Intra- and(More)
A huge retroperitoneal tumor with a right orbital mass was detected and proved to be an extragonadal nonseminomatous germ cell tumor on biopsy. BEP chemotherapy caused some regression in orbital mass however no change in retroperitoneal tumor size as well as serum tumor marker levels occurred. Herein, we present a rarely seen entity of extragonadal(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the protective effects of trimetazidine (TMZ), as an antioxidant agent, on streptozotocin (STZ)-induced diabetic rats. A total of 50 male Sprague Dawley rats were randomly classified into five groups as follows: Group 1 (control), Group 2 (STZ-induced diabetic rats), Group 3 (STZ-induced diabetic rats treated orally(More)
