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.
BACKGROUND Though Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) has been linked to classical Hodgkin's disease (cHD), only a proportion of cHD cases show EBV-association. While there has been evidence to suggest a crucial role for EBV in the early phase of cHD evolution, we are unclear whether continued presence of EBV is essential for the maintenance of the neoplasm. We have… (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)
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)
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)
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)
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)
The incidence of renal artery aneurysm in a solitary kidney has not been previously documented in the literature. A case of aneurysmal rupture into a pelvicalyceal system of a solitary kidney, successfully treated by primary vascular reconstruction under the cover of inosine and synchronous pelviureteric repair, is reported.
