OBJECTIVE Determine predictors of persistent postoperative detrusor overactivity and urge urinary incontinence after sling procedures for stress urinary incontinence STUDY DESIGN Three hundred five women with mixed urinary incontinence underwent sling procedures for stress urinary incontinence. Risk factors for persistent detrusor overactivity and urge(More)
BACKGROUND Irreversible electroporation (IRE) is a novel ablation tool that uses brief high-voltage pulses to treat cancer. The efficacy of the therapy depends upon the distribution of the electric field, which in turn depends upon the configuration of electrodes used. METHODS We sought to optimize the electrode configuration in terms of the distance(More)
Macrophages, a key cell in the inflammatory cascade, have been associated with poor prognosis in cancers, including breast cancer. In this study, we investigated the relationship of a subset of macrophages—proliferating macrophages (promacs)—with clinico-pathologic characteristics of breast cancer, including tumor size, grade, stage, lymph node metastases,(More)
Irreversible electroporation (IRE) uses high-voltage pulses applied to tissue, which cause dielectric breakdown of cell membranes resulting in cell death. IRE is a promising technique for ablation of nonresectable tumors because it can be configured to spare critical structures such as blood vessels. A consequence of pulse application is an increase in(More)
The importance of hormone receptor status in assigning treatment and the potential use of human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2)-targeted therapy have made it beneficial for laboratories to improve detection techniques. Because interlaboratory variability in immunohistochemistry (IHC) tests may also affect studies of breast cancer subtypes in(More)
Irreversible electroporation (IRE) is a novel therapy used to ablate tumors with high-field electric pulses applied in short durations. It is important to reduce the generation of heat in IRE to avoid the harmful effects of thermal damage. The objective of this simulation study was to examine the effects of saline irrigation in the reduction of heat upon(More)
