Our experience with these patients, combined with a thorough review of the literature, has demonstrated that while the cause and classification of these lesions often are controversial, multifaceted and confusing, the best treatment may(More)
It has been suggested recently that increases in the concentration of the MB isoenzyme of creatine kinase after transurethral operations could result from release of creatine kinase-MB by prostatic or bladder tissues and, therefore, that creatine kinase-MB is not specific for myocardial damage. Our study of 53 patients undergoing transurethral operations(More)
Cytosols of whole testicular homogenates from the Syrian golden hamster contained specific binding sites for [3H]triamcinolone acetonide that exhibited limited capacity and high affinity binding characteristic of glucocorticoid receptors in other target tissues. The receptor complex sedimented as an 8.6S binder in low salt 5-20% linear sucrose gradients and(More)
We compare our results with the endoscopic management of posterior urethral obliteration in 8 patients to our previous experience with transpubic urethroplasty in 6 patients. Although most patients who underwent an endoscopic procedure required 2 or 3 followup internal urethrotomies within the first 2 to 10 months after treatment, 6 have remained free of(More)
