Photoselective vaporization of the prostate for the treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia: 12-month results from the first United States multicenter prospective trial.
TLDR
PVP is a unique, safe and effective outpatient modality that provides immediate symptomatic and urodynamic relief of bladder outlet obstruction secondary to BPH and long-term followup is needed to validate further the maintenance of clinical efficacy beyond 1 year. Expand
Xanthogranulomatous pyelonephritis: a critical analysis of 26 cases and of the literature.
TLDR
Xanthogranulomatous pyelonephritis did not recur but in some patients bacteriuria continued or hypertension developed, and a correct preoperative diagnosis was made in only 1 instance. Expand
Photoselective potassium-titanyl-phosphate laser vaporization of the benign obstructive prostate: observations on long-term outcomes.
TLDR
Long-term experience and the literature suggest that significant improvements in symptomatic and urodynamic outcomes of photo-selective vaporization of the prostate are achievable and sustainable. Expand
Renal vein thrombosis.
TLDR
The manifestations, clinical course and treatment of 14 patients with non-malignant renal vein thrombosis are described and the rationale for various forms of treatment is discussed. Expand
Photoselective vaporization of the prostate: initial experience with a new 80 W KTP laser for the treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia.
TLDR
This pilot study indicates that PVP with the new 80 W KTP/532 laser is a simple, safe, and efficacious outpatient procedure for the treatment of obstructive BPH. Expand
Primary localized amyloidosis of the urinary bladder: a case series of 31 patients.
TLDR
Primary localized amyloidosis of the urinary bladder can be easily confused with a neoplasm and repeated work-ups for systemic amyloidalosis are unnecessary for patients with light chain-related amyloids of the bladder. Expand
Renal stone epidemiology: a 25-year study in Rochester, Minnesota.
TLDR
The first description of the incidence and recurrence rates for symptomatic noninfected renal stones in a well-defined population of Rochester, Minnesota, between 1950 and the end of 1974 is described. Expand
The detection of human papillomavirus deoxyribonucleic acid in intraepithelial, in situ, verrucous and invasive carcinoma of the penis.
TLDR
The prevalence of human papillomavirus DNA is significantly greater in carcinoma of the penis than in control tissue and the prevalence is greater in noninvasive lesions (carcinoma in situ and penile intraepithelial neoplasia) than in invasive carcinoma. Expand
High power potassium-titanyl-phosphate laser vaporization prostatectomy.
TLDR
The authors' observation in a 2-year period indicates that KTP laser vaporization prostatectomy is safe and effective for quickly relieving bladder outlet obstruction with minimal postoperative complications, a high rate of patient satisfaction and, to date, a generally good outcome. Expand
Epidermoid cyst of the testis: a critical analysis.
TLDR
The authors' experience with 163 patients with simple epidermoid cyst of the testis was analysed and found that fear of looking for a zebra in a herd of horses or not thinking of zebras at all has led to radical orchiectomy. Expand
