BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE To evaluate the safety and efficacy of percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) for the management of complete staghorn calculi in children <or=5 years old. PATIENTS AND METHODS The charts of 19 preschool children (15 boys, 4 girls) aged 20 months to 5 years (mean 4.2 years) with complete staghorn calculi who underwent PCNL at our center(More)
OBJECTIVES • To report the potency and oncological outcomes of patients undergoing robot-assisted radical prostatectomy (RARP) using a risk-stratified approach based on layers of periprostatic fascial dissection. • We also describe the surgical technique of complete hammock preservation or nerve sparing grade 1. PATIENTS AND METHODS • This is a(More)
INTRODUCTION The treatment of large complete staghorn calculi requires a sandwich combination of percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) and shockwave lithotripsy (SWL) or sometimes open surgery. Many urologists hesitate to place more than 2-3 tracts during PCNL because of the belief that this may increase complications. We present data to support multi-tract(More)
OBJECTIVE We describe a novel technique of total vesico-urethral reconstruction, which combines the tactics of previous surgeons, and compare the outcome of our innovative changes for return to early continence with prostatectomies with no or partial reconstruction of the vesico-urethral junction. PATIENTS AND METHODS Between 1 January 2005 and 5 June(More)
OBJECTIVE To analyse consecutive cases of robotic-assisted laparoscopic prostatectomy (RALP), present the incidence of nerve-sparing-related positive surgical margins (SM+), include visual cues that might assist in smoothly changing to the robotic platform, and discuss the scientific rationale for 'intersensory integration' which might explain the 'reverse(More)
AIM Supracostal superior calyceal access has been shown to be the most suitable approach for staghorn calculi, calculi in the upper ureter and complex inferior calyceal calculi, as well as for antegrade endopyelotomy. However, many urologists hesitate in using this approach because of the potential for chest complications. The aim of this study was to(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Supracostal access for percutaneous renal surgery raises concern for the intrathoracic complications of the puncture. We analyzed the incidence of pleural transgression and intrathoracic complications after supracostal punctures in relation to the site of puncture (medial v lateral placement) and the respiratory phase during the(More)
Eighteen adult males with end stage renal disease (ESRD) were studied to determine the serum levels of gonadotropins (LH and FSH), prolactin (PRL) and testosterone. All of the patients were studied longitudinally while undergoing maintenance hemodialysis (HD) and six months after renal transplantation. Prior to transplantation, significantly high levels of(More)
Management of large calculi in ectopic pelvic kidneys poses a challenge to the urologist. Risk of injury to surrounding abdominal viscera and vasculature makes open surgery as well as percutaneous nephrostolithotomy in an ectopic kidney a challenging procedure. Laparoscopic management avoids open surgery and associated morbidity and offers added safety. We(More)
BACKGROUND The present study provides an estimate of the prevalence of bacteriologially positive pulmonary tuberculosis in Jabalpur, a district in central India. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS A community based cross-sectional survey was undertaken in Jabalpur District of the central Indian state of Madhya Pradesh. A stratified cluster sampling design was(More)
