We report 4 cases of metastatic renal cell carcinoma (RCC) with long-term survival either following radical nephrectomy alone or in combination with radioor hormonal therapy. Two patients with lymph node metastases showed a long-term survival of 12 or more years following radical tumour nephrectomy (with lymphadenectomy) and radiotherapy. One of them(More)
In the summer of 2004, the faculty in the psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner (PMHNP) Program at Oregon Health and Science University School of Nursing began the redesign of an objective-based curriculum to a competency-based curriculum. The competencies were based on the 2003 National Organization of Nurse Practitioner Faculties (NONPF) PMHNP(More)
Samples of 38 human renal cell carcinomas (RCC) were subjected to routine histopathological examination but also to in vitro sensitivity testing with mitomycin C, vinblastine and interferon Alpha-2a at various concentrations corresponding to serum titers recommended to be effective in vivo, employing a monolayer assay. Extending earlier in vitro studies,(More)
The aim of this study was to determine and compare the effects of both magnesium citrate and phytin on reducing urinary calcium excretion under high-calcium-diet conditions during single and combined treatments. An animal experiment was carried out over a period of 4 weeks in 35 male rats. Urinary calcium excretion was reduced significantly by magnesium(More)
In a prospective study, results of the extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy of salivary stones were evaluated. The study was performed with the currently available technical possibilities of electromagnetic systems to get indication criteria for this procedure. Using the Modulith SL 20-lithotripter of Storz Medical AG, 33 concrements in 25 patients were(More)
The aim of our study was to examine the cavernous smooth-muscle electric activity in normal and impotent patients as well as in those with (presumably) well-defined neurologic lesions. Single potential analysis of cavernous electric activity (SPACE) was done in 12 consecutive impotent patients, 34 normal patients, and 19 patients referred especially for(More)
The disadvantages of highly flexible endoureteral (double J) stents in the face of tumor-induced extrinsic ureteral compression are a consequence of insufficient cross-sectional stability, leading to stent compression and thus to hydronephrosis or pyonephrosis. The newly developed tumor stent, which is used in cases of tumor-induced ureteral compression, is(More)
From 1986 until 1990, in vivo proliferation rates (PRs) in 110 patients with renal-cell carcinoma (RCC) were immunohistochemically determined by the Ki-67 assay. It could be demonstrated that the PRs of RCCs range between only 1% and 15%. Due to its low proliferative kinetics in vivo, tumor cytogenetic investigations of this malignancy remain rare.
