A 60-year-old woman with chronic renal failure due to a polycystic kidney underwent living kidney transplantation. Initial immunosuppressive therapy consisted of tacrolimus (TAC), mycophenolate mofetil (MMF), prednisolone, and basiliximab. Furthermore, rituximab was administered, and double filtration plasmapheresis and plasma exchange were utilized because(More)
Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) is a signaling molecule that regulates cellular processes. Based on previous studies of bladder function over the past decade, bladder ATP signaling was thought to have an essential role in the normal micturition reflex. In this study, we performed detailed analyses of bladder function in purinergic receptor-deficient mice using(More)
A 72-year-old woman was diagnosed with bladder cancer (cT3bN0M0). After 2 cycles of GC (gemcitabine,cisplatin) neoadjuvant chemotherapy, the patient underwent a cystectomy and ileal conduit construction. Pathological findings showed urothelial carcinoma, high grade, G2>G3, pT3a, INFβ, ly0, v1. Six months after the operation, metastases to the liver, lung,(More)
A 67-year-old woman presented with macroscopic hematuria and lower abdominal pain. Cystoscopy revealed a broad-stalk non-papillary tumor at the bladder dome. Computed tomography (CT) showed a tumor extending from the umbilicus to the bladder dome, together with multiple lung metastases. Serum carcinoembryonic antigen and cancer antigen (CA19-9) levels were(More)
A 61-year-old woman was diagnosed with left renal cell carcinoma. Clinical stage was cT1bN0M0. She underwent retroperitoneoscopic radical nephrectomy. The pathological diagnosis was clear cell carcinoma, pT1b, G1>G2, INFα, v(+). At 33 months postoperatively CT demonstrated an enhancing tumor just under the port site for evacuation route of the kidney. The(More)
A 52-year-old man received partial left nephrectomy for renal cell carcinoma (clear cell carcinoma, G1, pT1aN0M0) in January, 2003. After 7 years, he was diagnosed with mediastinal lymph node metastasis and we performed interferon-alpha therapy. After 7 months, he presented with dyspnea. Chest X rays showed a large globular cardiac shadow. Echocardiography(More)
PURPOSE We reviewed our retrospective surgical database and assessed the outcome after radical prostatectomy (RP) in patients with clinical T3 (cT3) prostate cancer (PC). MATERIAL AND METHODS Sixty four men underwent RP for cT3 PC in our hospital from 1995 to 2011. Clinical stage was diagnosed with MRI and rectal digital examination in all cases. We(More)
An 83-year-old man presented with asymptomatic macroscopic hematuria while being treated for prostate cancer with hormonal therapy in January 2009. Cystoscopy revealed a 5 mm surface-smooth non pedunculated tumor lateral to the left ureteral orifice. Transurethral resection was carried out to examine the histology of the tumor. Histopathologic examination(More)
A 53-year-old man was diagnosed with bladder cancer with pelvic and para-aortic lymph node metastases. The clinical stage was cT3bN2M1. He underwent radical cystectomy and ileal conduit construction and retroperitoneal lymph node dissection after showing a partial response to 4 cycles of chemotherapy with methotrexate,vinblastine,doxorubicin and cisplatin(More)
We report a case of tubercular prostatic abscess. A 65-year-old man had undergone intravesical Bacillus Calmette-Guerin therapy for a non-muscle invasive bladder carcinoma. One year 8 months later, the prostate-specific antigen concentration in serum was elevated (18. 58 ng/ml). Results of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the pelvis led us to suspect a(More)
