OBJECTIVES Accurate tumor identification during partial nephrectomy is essential for successful tumor control. Intraoperative laparoscopic ultrasonography is useful for tumor localization, but the ultrasound probe is controlled by the assistant rather than the surgeon. We evaluated our initial experience using a robotic ultrasound probe that is controlled(More)
The authors review the brainstem auditory evoked potential (BAEP), and present studies on 40 healthy subjects. In addition to the conventional click evoked BAEP, three modified BAEP examinations were performed. The modified BAEP tests include a 1,000 Hz tone-burst BAEP, and more rapid rate binaural click and 1,000 Hz tone-burst BAEPs-each of the last two(More)
Rab monomeric GTPases regulate specific aspects of vesicle transport in eukaryotes including coat recruitment, uncoating, fission, motility, target selection and fusion. Moreover, individual Rab proteins function at specific sites within the cell, for example the ER, golgi and early endosome. Importantly, the localization and function of individual Rab(More)
OBJECTIVES The implications of positive surgical margin (PSM) extent and location during radical perineal prostatectomy (RPP) have not been assessed in a contemporary series. We aimed to examine the incidence, location, and extent of PSM as well as their impact on biochemical recurrence (BCR) following RPP. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 794 patients(More)
BACKGROUND Although acute cocaine use has been correlated with aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage, its effect on vasospasm and outcome is controversial. We investigated the effect of acute cocaine use on response to vasospasm treatment and neurologic outcome in patients with aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage. METHODS Data from 600 patients with(More)
BACKGROUND Heparin-induced thrombocytopenia type II (HIT II) correlates with a higher incidence of thromboembolic complications and unfavorable outcome. OBJECTIVE To examine the risk factors and outcomes for patients with HIT II with aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage. METHODS Demographics, risk factors, treatments, and outcomes data of 600 aneurysmal(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES The need for a skilled assistant to perform hilar clamping during robotic partial nephrectomy is a potential limitation of the technique. We describe our experience using robotic bulldog clamps applied by the console surgeon for hilar clamping. METHODS A total of 60 consecutive patients underwent robotic partial nephrectomy, 30(More)
BACKGROUND Cerebral vasospasm complicates both surgical and endovascular treatment of ruptured aneurysms. The present study analyzes patients with presentation vasospasm (PVSP) treated in the acute setting and compares outcomes in those treated with surgical clipping versus endovascular coiling. METHODS Data from 600 aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage(More)
