Retrograde displacement of ureteral stones into the renal cavities during ureteroscopic lithotripsy represents a frequent and adverse event that leads to additional procedures (ESWL, PCNL, Retrograde Intra-renal lithotripsy with flexible instruments, DJ stent placement and subsequent EWSL) to obtain full clearence of calculi. All these procedures require a(More)
CIS is a flat, high-grade, non-invasive microscopic urothelial carcinoma. It is considered a precursor of invasive bladder cancer. CIS is classified as primary, secondary or concurrent, when occurred as isolated CIS without cuncurrent papillary tumors, or detected during the follow-up of patients with a previous papillary tumor, or finally in the presence(More)
One approach to adoptive cancer immunotherapy is based on the use of bispecific monoclonal antibodies (mAb) capable to redirect ex vivo generated cytolytic T lymphocytes (CTL) onto tumour cells. The efficiency of the CD28 T-cell activation pathway to induce CD3-dependent cytolytic activity was investigated while avoiding modulation of the TCR/CD3 complex(More)
On the basis of data obtained in previous experimental investigations, the application of a new physical entity, “strain” (σ), was evaluated in bladder dynamics. In this preliminary study 12 cases of urodynamically evaluated subjects are reported; the significance of the traditional P(V) curves is critically compared with the new σ(V) curve, proposed by the(More)
PURPOSE Based on our preclinic studies with autologous unfractionated bone marrow (AUBM) via coronary sinus with transitory occlusion, a clinic study in patients with chronic stable angina was designed. The objectives were to evaluate safety, tolerance and feasibility. METHODS AND MATERIALS A multicenter prospective study with inclusion and exclusion(More)
Over a period of 5 years (from 1989 to 1993) 410 patients with benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH) were treated by transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP). A retrospective study was conducted by the Authors to evaluate indications, surgical approaches and results. The Authors' experience is compared with literature reports.
BACKGROUND Benznidazole is recommended for treatment of Chagas infection. Effects of combination therapy with benznidazole and posaconazole have not been tested in Trypanosoma cruzi carriers. OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to determine whether posaconazole alone or combined with benznidazole were superior to benznidazole monotherapy in(More)
INTRODUCTION Neuroendocrine bladder cancer is extremely rare, with an estimated incidence of 0.35-0.70% of all bladder tumors. The small-cell carcinoma represents the most frequent histologic variant described. Small-cell carcinoma is an epithelial tumor associated with a more aggressive behavior and poorer prognosis than transitional cell bladder(More)
