Seventy-two patients with renal carcinoma (RC) in a solitary kidney or bilateral synchronous tumours underwent parenchyma-sparing excision of their neoplasms. This was performed in situ in 51 and extracorporeally in 21 kidneys, with a complication rate respectively of 17 and 43%. The 5-year survival rates were 78% for unilateral disease, 48% for bilateral(More)
Regional venous plasma aldosterone concentrations were determined and assessed against concurrent arterial levels in 16 patients with primary aldosteronism. The results obtained by sampling from the left adrenal vein or the left renal vein allowed correct side prediction of the presupposed adenoma in each patient. The problems caused by intermittent(More)
The conventional investigations, gynaecological examination and cystoscopy give very little information about the causes of incontinence. History taking makes it possible to divide the symptoms into either stress- or urge incontinence. Cystometry, lateral voiding cysto-urethrography and urodynamic examination including sphincter EMG enable us to divide the(More)
Since Jan. 1, 1976 practically all new cases of germ cell tumours of the testis in Denmark have been included in the Danish Testicular Carcinoma Study (DATECA), permitting detailed registration of data concerning histology and stage at the time of diagnosis. The incidence of carcinoma of the testis in Denmark continues to be high with a crude rate of 8 to(More)
Urodynamic investigations were performed in 9 males, suffering from dysfunction of the bladder neck (detrusor bladder neck dyssynergia). The parameters of micturition were compared with the values in normal males and in patients with prostatic obstruction. By introducing a new factor, the maximum opening time, we found a characteristic pattern in(More)
The bulbocavernosus reflex can be elicited either by penile or urethral stimulation. The mean signal transit time after electrostimulation of the dorsal penile nerve to evoked response in the anal sphincter (35 msec) was only half the signal transit time after stimulation in the posterior urethra (60 msec). Thus, the modified bulbocavernosus reflex elicited(More)
