During a 5-year period percutaneous nephrolithotripsy through an intercostal space was performed in 56 of 231 procedures. Minimal thoracic complications were seen in 3 of 53 patients with 11th intercostal space tracts into a lower, middle, or upper pole calyx. A working sheath and a pyelostomy drainage catheter were used in all these cases. Hydro- and(More)
We present 21 patients with fracture of the penis treated between July 1982 and July 1990. Eighteen patients were treated surgically, with good functional and morphological recovery; 3 refused surgery, 1 of whom had penile deformity and pain on erection. The literature is reviewed with respect to the necessity of different diagnostic and therapeutic options.
Seventeen patients had a single-stage operation for urethral stricture. To avoid recurrence (which occurred in 2 patients) the urethra should be opened not only through the stricture but well beyond the pathological cavernous tissue. In 3 patients it was not possible to reconstruct the bulbocavernosus muscle over the bulb. This resulted in urethral pouching(More)
Balloon dilatation was performed in nine patients with bilharzial ureteric strictures. In six patients a percutaneous, antegrade approach was used and in three a balloon catheter was introduced into the ureter via a cystoscope. In another four patients, negotiation of the strictured area with a guide wire failed. In all dilated patients, symptomatic and(More)

A 60-year-old insulin dependent, diabetic male with severe atherosclerosis requiring multiple amputations in the extremities in the past, with normal renal function presented with gangrene of glans penis. He was initially treated with debridement but as the gangrene progressed, partial penile amputation was performed. He showed no further progress of the(More)
During a 5-year period 21 consecutive patients with iatrogenic or traumatic upper urinary tract leaks (nonmalignant) underwent treatment 5 to 28 days later with an indwelling double pigtail stent via an antegrade or retrograde approach. Six patients underwent initial nephrostomy drainage for relief of obstruction causing decreased renal function and/or(More)
The present study estimates biological half-life (BHL) of tritium by analysing routine bioassay samples of radiation workers. During 2007-2009 year, 72,100 urine bioassay samples of the workers were analysed by liquid scintillation counting technique for internal dose monitoring for tritium. Two hundred and two subjects were taken for study with minimum 3(More)
Two cases of signet-ring cell adenocarcinoma of the urinary bladder with a linitis plastica pattern of infiltration were studied. Mucin histochemistry indicated the presence of neutral and acid mucopolysaccharides and absence of sulphomucin. Immunocytochemistry of the tumour cells was positive for keratin and carcinoembryonic antigen, but negative for(More)
