The American Academy of Pediatrics recently released its new Technical Report and Policy Statement on male circumcision, concluding that current evidence indicates that the health benefits of newborn male circumcision outweigh the risks. The technical report is based on the scrutiny of a large number of complex scientific articles. Therefore, while striving(More)
A Follow-up study on 65 consecutive patients who underwent vesicourethral suspension (Marshall-Marchetti-Krantz' operation) in the period 1961-70 was carried out. Indications and results were evaluated. Forty-one patients completed the investigation. Twenty-five patients were operated on correct indication (pure stress incontinence). Twenty patients (80%)(More)
The post-operative treatment of urethral strictures as well as the criteria of success have varied considerably. In order to find a solution to this problem, we undertook a prospective evaluation of 81 men treated for their first urethral stricture with a single urethrotomy. Fifty-one patients with a stricture 5 mm or less in length were catheterised(More)
Urinary flow measurement and often retrograde urethrography are used in the postoperative control of urethral strictures treated with urethrotomy. In the present study we have evaluated the usefulness of retrograde urethrography and find that the postoperative control should consist of a history and uroflowmetry.
The iliac compression syndrome is caused by impaired venous drainage of the left leg, secondary to compression or stricture of the left iliac vein at, or just before, its junction with inferior vena cava. Serious potential complications are deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, venous congestion, and the resultant incapacity. Nine patients in whom the(More)
133Xe washout measurements were used to determine cutaneous and subcutaneous blood flow beneath a specially designed double-thermostat tc-PO2 electrode. The skin blood flow was determined using thermal methods based on reduced heat dissipation during blood flow cessation. A total of 20 measurements were performed on two healthy volunteers, using the volar(More)
A new approach to the determination of energy delivered to the skin during transcutaneous oxygen tension (tc-PO2) measurements was tested. The test was carried out using a tc-PO2 electrode constructed with an active thermal shield in order to provide more sensitive and specific heat transport measurements, and consequently to create the possibility of(More)
Oxygen tensions, cutaneous blood flow rate, and skin oxygen consumption rate were determined by tc-PO2 measurements at an electrode temperature of 45 degrees C. The epidermal surface was stripped by 50 applications of adhesive plaster to the surface. Ten healthy, normotensive adults were examined. Cutaneous blood flow rate was 41.2 +/- 8.6 ml X (100 g)-1 X(More)
A method for estimation of the cutaneous blood flow in transcutaneous PO2 measurements is presented. Recordings of electrode and skin temperature make it possible to compute the effect dissipated to the circulating blood. Eighteen measurements were performed on three healthy volunteers at electrode temperature settings from 37.0 degrees C to 45.0 degrees C.(More)
