PURPOSE We describe the feasibility and complications of dorsal buccal mucosa graft urethroplasty in female patients with urethral stenosis. MATERIALS AND METHODS From April 2005 to July 2005, 3 women 45 to 65 years old (average age 53.7) with urethral stricture disease underwent urethral reconstruction using a dorsal buccal mucosa graft. Stricture(More)
PURPOSE We reviewed our experience with 49 consecutive patients undergoing a male sling procedure. MATERIALS AND METHODS The 7-item International Prostate Symptom Score and 22-item incontinence quality of life questionnaire (although not validated in Italian) were used to assess the clinical impact of the bulbourethral sling. Surgical outcome was also(More)
The present work investigates electricity production using a high efficiency electrochemical generator that employs as fuel a biogas from the dry anaerobic digestion of the organic fraction of municipal solid waste (OFMSW). The as-produced biogas contains several contaminants (sulfur, halogen, organic silicon and aromatic compounds) that can be harmful for(More)
In the future energy pathway, characterized by flexibility of technologies and fuels, biogas could represent an alternative to conventional natural gas in feeding multiple types of technologies, both traditional thermal machines (chemical reactions), and innovative electrochemical generators such as fuel cells (electrochemical reactions). To compare the two(More)
