PURPOSE We compared the perioperative and postoperative characteristics of prostate PlasmaKinetic™ enucleation and bipolar transurethral resection for large volume benign prostatic hyperplasia. MATERIALS AND METHODS In this prospective, randomized, controlled trial 80 patients with benign prostatic hyperplasia and a prostate of larger than 70 ml were(More)
BACKGROUND Studies have demonstrated that plasmakinetic enucleation of the prostate (PKEP) and open prostatectomy (OP) have equivalent short-term efficacy for large prostates, but no comparison concerning their long-term results was reported. OBJECTIVE To demonstrate the noninferiority of PKEP to OP concerning maximum urinary flow rate (Qmax) at 1 yr(More)
Display ads proliferate on the web, but are they effective? Or are they irrelevant in light of all the other advertising that people see? We describe a way to answer these questions, quickly and accurately, without randomized experiments, surveys, focus groups or expert data analysts. Doubly robust estimation protects against the selection bias that is(More)
Scalar replacement is an effective optimization for removing memory accesses. However, exposing all possible array reuse with scalars may cause a significant increase in register pressure, resulting in register spilling and performance degradation. We present a low cost method to predict the register pressure of a loop before applying scalar replacement on(More)
A vesicovaginal fistula with vagina obstruction associated with vaginal calculi is an extremely rare medical condition. We report a giant primary vaginal calculus resulting from vesicovaginal fistula with partial vaginal outlet obstruction secondary to perineum trauma and surgery in a 12-year-old girl. Episiotomy was performed and the adhesive labia minora(More)
