PURPOSE We prospectively evaluate the safety, morbidity and complication rates for first and repeat transrectal ultrasound guided prostate needle biopsies. MATERIALS AND METHODS In this prospective European Prostate Cancer Detection Study 1,051 men, with total prostate specific antigen between 4 and 10 ng./ml., underwent transrectal ultrasound guided(More)
PURPOSE We evaluated biochemical parameters and pathological features, as well as biopsy related morbidity of prostate cancer detected on biopsies 2, 3 and 4 in men with total serum prostate specific antigen (PSA) between 4 and 10 ng./ml. These features were compared to those detected on prostate biopsy 1. MATERIALS AND METHODS In this prospective(More)
OBJECTIVE Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is one of the most common conditions associated with ageing in men. BPH often presents as lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) due to difficulties in voiding and irritability of the bladder. We conducted a retrospective cohort study within the Integrated Primary Care Information (IPCI) database, a general(More)
OBJECTIVES Knowledge of the clinical profile of the population with lower urinary tract symptoms/benign prostatic hyperplasia (LUTS/BPH) is important for health care management, impacting on manpower requirements, pharmacologic demands and health service costs. Data collected by the TransEuropean Research Into the Use of Management Policies for LUTS(More)
We present clinical and radiological findings in a case of collecting (Bellini) duct carcinoma (CDC). This is a rare and aggressive kidney cancer originating from the distal renal tubule. The patient underwent radical nephrectomy and the pathological report showed trabeculopapillary, partially solid adenocarcinoma infiltrating the renal capsule and sinus.(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the long-term anatomical results using the original method of vaginal reconstruction with a pedicled bladder flap (Krzeski's cystovaginoplasty, CVP) in women with Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster-Hauser syndrome (MRKHS) and the evaluation of radiological, histological, cytohormonal and functional results of CVP. PATIENTS AND METHODS Between(More)
This prospective, multicenter European Prostate Cancer Detection study evaluated the value and performance of the molecular forms of prostate-specific antigen (PSA) and their derivatives in combination with prostate gland and transition zone volumes in early detection of prostate cancer in patients with PSA levels between 4 and 10 ng/mL. Of 750 men enrolled(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the safety and efficacy of pelvic floor muscle electrostimulation (ES) in women with stress urinary incontinence (SUI) or mixed UI (MUI, urge and interstitial cystitis), using a new portable electrostimulator (Miniaturo, Biocontrol Medical Inc., Yehud, Israel) which delivers different forms of stimulation for treating these two(More)
BACKGROUND Cystovaginoplasty (CVP) is a method of vaginal reconstruction in women with Mayer-Rokitansky-Kistner-Hauser Syndrome (MRKHS). The neo-vagina allows normal sexual intercourses, but after CVP, the sexual life of patients with MRKHS does not differ significantly from normal females. Therefore, we decided to elucidate the pattern of sensory(More)
To establish the extent of varicocele as the cause of infertility in men and compare the various techniques of treatment. We searched PubMed and the Cochrane Library database using varicocele, male infertility, varicocelectomy as keywords. Varicocele seems to be a growing problem considered to be one of the most common causes of male infertility in recent(More)
