miRNAs are involved in cancer development and progression, acting as tumor suppressors or oncogenes. In this study, miRNA profiling was conducted on 10 paired bladder cancer tissues using 20 GeneChip miRNA Array, and 10 differentially expressed miRNAs were identified in bladder cancer and adjacent noncancerous tissues of any disease stage/grade. After being(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the efficacy and safety of solifenacin in the management of irritative symptoms after transurethral resection of bladder tumors (TURBTs) with subsequent intravesical chemotherapy. METHODS A total of 116 patients undergoing TURBT were randomly allocated into 2 groups, 58 patients in each group. Group 1 patients received solifenacin 5(More)
PURPOSE To explore the morbidity, mortality and oncological results of laparoscopic radical cystectomy (LRC) in the elderly patients over 75-year-old in contrast with open radical cystectomy (ORC). MATERIALS AND METHODS We analyzed 46 radical cystectomies from January 2009 to December 2013 in patients over 75-year-old in our institute, 21 patients in the(More)
OBJECTIVE Fibroepithelial polyps of ureter prolapsing into the bladder are a rare urological condition. We report the imaging findings and our experience with endoscopic treatment for ureteral fibroepithelial polyps prolapsing into the bladder. PATIENTS AND RESULTS Four patients with frank pain and hematuria were enrolled. Intravenous urography and(More)
OBJECTIVES To validate the flexible ultrasound bronchoscope (FUB) as a tool in distinguishing muscle invasive and non-muscle invasive bladder tumors. MATERIALS AND METHODS From June 2010 to April 2012, 62 patients (11 female and 51 male) with 92 bladder urothelial carcinoma were treated in our study. The mean (±SD) patient age was 64.0±12.5 years old(More)
The prognosis of bladder urothelial carcinoma (BLCA) varies greatly even for patients with similar pathological characteristics. We conducted transcriptome sequencing on ten pairs of BLCA samples and adjacent normal tissues to identify differentially expressed genes. Anillin (ANLN) was identified as a transcript that was significantly up-regulated in BLCA(More)
Ultrasound is a form of mechanical energy with its acoustic pressure wave at frequencies range from 20 to 20,000 Hz. To date, ultrasound waves are not only used in imaging medicine for diagnosis, but also are performed in physical therapy (PT) medicine for the purpose of preventing and curing disease due to its thermal and nonthermal effects, and the(More)
INTRODUCTION In order to anatomically reconstruct ureteral stenosis, we present a novel technique for laparoscopic ureteral reimplantation. PATIENTS AND METHODS Three young females, who were diagnosed with hydroureteronephrosis caused by congenital vesicoureteral junction obstruction, were treated by laparoscopic ureteral reimplantation with a tunnel(More)

Renal artery thrombosis secondary to blunt abdominal trauma is distinctly rare. We report three cases of unilateral real artery thrombosis patients in our hospital and analyze its clinical diagnosis, therapeutic to the literature on the subject. In light of the classification of traumatic renal pedicle is not very distinct yet, we classify renal artery(More)
