Six patients with malignancies in a solitary kidney were treated with conservative renal parenchymal-sparing surgery utilizing the Neodymium Yttrium Aluminum Garnet (Nd:YAG) laser. Three patients had transitional cell carcinoma in an upper pole calyx of a solitary kidney. The transitional cell carcinoma was treated definitively by the Nd:YAG laser through a(More)
Mesonephric adenocarcinoma of the bladder may be the malignant counterpart of nephrogenic adenoma. We report the third known case of this invasive, well differentiated, tubular neoplasm resembling nephrogenic adenoma. The invasive potential of nephrogenic neoplasms has altered our approach to the management of these lesions. Nephrogenic adenoma and(More)
Various investigations have reported the presence of cytotoxic lymphocyte activity in inflammatory periodontal disease. The collective evidence indicates that the inflammatory infiltrates of gingivitis and periodontitis should feature a major component of large granular lymphocytes (NK-cells) possessing cytotoxic potential. Thus, the purpose of this study(More)
Pancreatic islet allo- and xenografts are not rejected and exhibit long-term beta-cell function if transplanted into the abdominal testis of the diabetic host. Successful transplantation appears dependent on local factors unique to the abdominal testis. Because Leydig cells remain viable in abdominal testes, which also retain high levels of testosterone,(More)
Extravasation of glycine irrigant during percutaneous ultrasonic lithotripsy has caused a transurethral resection syndrome consisting of hypertension, confusion and hyponatremia. With a rabbit model this complication is recreated with the intraperitoneal instillation of 1.5 per cent glycine solution tagged with 14carbon-glycine. Significant quantitative(More)
We report a unique case of a duplex ureter with ureteral ectopia. A 30-year-old man presented with a coliform infection of the epididymis and excretory urography revealed, in addition to a normal-appearing right renal collecting system, a second right ureter that arose from an inferior calix, penetrated the lower pole parenchyma and drained directly into(More)
Rats with short-term diabetes show a greater than 50% reduction of serum testosterone and increased lipid in Leydig cells but normal testicular structure. The purpose of this study was to determine the extent of testicular pathology (morphology index), integrity of the blood-testis barrier, daily sperm production (DSP), number of Leydig cells per testis(More)
Application of acetic acid solution to the genital skin followed by magnified examination permits the detection of grossly inapparent flat condylomata acuminata. To evaluate the accuracy of this screening method, the male sexual partners of 36 women with genital condylomata were examined by this method and biopsies were obtained when results were positive.(More)
A total of 108 male partners of women with cervical condyloma and/or dysplasia underwent evaluation for gross and subclinical condyloma via acetic acid screening with a magnified examination. Biopsies of acetowhite genital skin were obtained for histological and deoxyribonucleic acid hybridization analysis. Of the men 52 (49%) had acetowhite lesions and(More)
Flow cytometry can differentiate benign from malignant lesions of the prostate through deoxyribonucleic acid distribution analysis. A method has been developed that permits simultaneous cytometric determination of deoxyribonucleic acid and acid phosphatase activity in the cell cycle compartments of prostatic biopsy specimens. Histograms of prostatic(More)
