OBJECTIVE To evaluate the results obtained from out-patient surgical treatment of female stress urinary incontinence (SUI) with the use of trans-obturator tape (TOT) of a single Contrasure-Needleless incision (Neomedic-International). PATIENTS AND METHOD We performed an intervention with local anesthesia-sedation in outpatient regime between January 2007(More)
Benzo[b]thiophen-2-yl-3-bromo-5-hydroxy-5H-furan-2-one (BTH) is a simple and interesting synthetic derivative of petrosaspongiolide M, a natural compound isolated from a sea sponge with demonstrated potent anti-inflammatory activity through inhibition of the NF-κB signaling pathway. In the present study, we report the in vitro and in vivo pharmacological(More)
Adenosine is a potent regulator of inflammation and immunity, but the role of adenosine receptors in keratinocytes remains controversial. We determined that in addition to A2B receptors, human epidermal keratinocytes also express A2A receptors, although to a lower extent. Through the use of selective adenosine receptor agonists and antagonists, we showed(More)
Chondroitin sulfate (CS) is a natural glycosaminoglycan, formed by the 1-3 linkage of d-glucuronic acid to N-acetylgalactosamine, present in the extracellular matrix. It is used as a slow acting disease modifying agent in the treatment of osteoarthritis, and part of its beneficial effects are due to its antiinflammatory properties that result from an(More)
A study was performed in 20 male Wistar rats weighing 250-300 gm; 10 comprised the control group and the other 10 were treated with 5 mg/day of cyproterone acetate which was given with the meal for 2 months. The rat testicular microcirculation was studied by laser Doppler flowmetry. Similarly, the testicular interstitial fluid volume and plasma testosterone(More)
We present a case of pyelorenal calcification on double-J ureteral catheter, which made endoscopic extraction impossible. We review the literature and describe the incidence, methods of diagnosis and treatment of this complication, as well as the means used to avoid it.
Presentation of a study conducted on 20 male Wistar rats treated for 3 months with Leuprolide (LHRH agonist). Analysis of pathophysiological testicular changes resulting from the treatment and extent of recovery at 3 months of therapy discontinuation, relating those changes to testosterone plasma levels in peripheral blood. Serum testosterone fell to 1.17(More)
The purpose of this paper is to present the changes that take place in testicular microcirculation measured by DLF during systemic administration of LHRH agonists. The essay includes a comparison with the variations registered in the volume of testicular interstitial fluid, the anatomopathological changes and the associated leucocyte demyeloperoxidase(More)
Long-term results obtained in 54 surgical procedures to correct effort urinary incontinence performed in 49 patients with this pathology are reviewed. One group was treated with suprapubic urethrovesical suspension with the Marshall-Marchetti-Krantz technique; the other group with endoscopic suspension of the neck of the bladder, with the Stamey technique(More)
