OBJECTIVE To evaluate the treatment options and surgical outcomes of long-segment urethral strictures-a review of the largest, international, multi-institutional series. METHODS A retrospective review was performed of patients treated with strictures ≥8 cm at 8 international centers. Endpoints analyzed included surgical complications and recurrence. (More)
PURPOSE Panurethral stricture involving the penile and bulbar urethra is a common urological problem on the South Asian subcontinent. It represents a particularly difficult challenge to manage and there is a relative paucity of literature on the subject. In India lichen sclerosus is the most common etiology of panurethral stricture, followed by iatrogenic(More)
Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) are spreading around in multiple fields of applications because they perform measuring tasks in a flexible way [1]. In this presented work IEEE 802.15.4 protocol based Zigbee transceivers module are used to make the wireless sensor network. The sensor node will acquire and internally store data periodically. Starting times as(More)
BACKGROUND Dietary antioxidants have been suggested to have protective role against chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), but few prospective studies examined this relationship. The prospective study was conducted to evaluate the effect of dietary antioxidants on COPD risk and lung function in the Korean population. METHODS The data were collected(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess treatment strategies for seven different scenarios for treating complex pelvic fracture urethral injury (PFUI), categorised as repeat surgery for PFUI, ischaemic bulbar urethral necrosis (BUN), repair in boys and girls aged ⩽12 years, in patients with a recto-urethral fistula, or bladder neck incontinence, or with a double block at the(More)
In the proposed paper wireless data gathering system for temperature parameter is designed based on ZigBee wireless technology. The system is made up by three parts. The Slave part that is in charge of collecting temperature data, it’s designed by CC2500 chip and DS1620 temperature sensor. The Master part which is responsible for temperature data received(More)
Long-segment urethral stricture or panurethral stricture disease, involving the different anatomic segments of anterior urethra, is a relatively less common lesion of the anterior urethra compared to bulbar stricture. However, it is a particularly difficult surgical challenge for the reconstructive urologist. The etiology varies according to age and(More)
Guide wires are frequently used in various endourologic procedures to access the upper as well as lower urinary tract. Flexible guide wires have lesser complication rate of tissue injury as compared to stiff guide wires. Flexible guide wires are however more prone to bending and kinking due to their mechanical properties. We report an unusual complication(More)
Panurethral stricture, involving the penile and bulbar urethra, is seen across the world .It is a complex disease with a relative paucity of literature on the subject. In India, Lichen Sclerosus is the most common cause of panurethral stricture followed by iatrogenic causes. The article presents the authors' experiences of Panurethral stricture repair using(More)
Rapidly, establishing a difficult intravenous access in a dangerously agitated patient is a real challenge. Intranasal midazolam has been shown to be effective and safe for rapidly sedating patients before anesthesia, for procedural sedation and for control of seizure. Here, we report a patient in intensive care unit who was on mechanical ventilation and on(More)
