Up-regulation of TGM2 with ITGB1 and SDC4 is important in the development and metastasis of renal cell carcinoma.
OBJECTIVE Tissue transglutaminase (TGM2) up-regulation is involved in the progression and dissemination of carcinomas through β1 integrin (ITGB1) association. Given that TGM2 interaction withExpand
Urinary nerve growth factor in children with overactive bladder: a promising, noninvasive and objective biomarker.
OBJECTIVE This prospective study was designed to determine urinary nerve growth factor (NGF) levels in children with overactive bladder (OAB), and to evaluate whether this factor can be used as aExpand
Increased preoperative levels of plasma fibrinogen and D dimer in patients with renal cell carcinoma is associated with poor survival and adverse tumor characteristics.
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE The relationship between renal cell carcinoma (RCC) and coagulation/fibrinolysis system has been described in several studies. The aim of this study was to investigate theExpand
Nitric oxide synthase (eNOS4a/b) gene polymorphism is associated with tumor recurrence and progression in superficial bladder cancer cases.
PURPOSE We investigated the relationship between the distribution of the eNOS4a/b polymorphism and the clinical features of superficial bladder cancer. MATERIALS AND METHODS This study included 201Expand
Warm Ischemia-Related Postoperative Renal Dysfunction in Elective Laparoscopic Partial Nephrectomy Recovers During Intermediate-Term Follow-Up.
PURPOSE To analyze the impact of warm ischemia time (WIT) on early postoperative and ultimate renal function after elective laparoscopic partial nephrectomy (LPN). PATIENTS AND METHODS One hundredExpand
Impact of ureteral access sheath force of insertion on ureteral trauma: In vivo preliminary study with 7 patients.
BACKGROUND Ureteral access sheaths (UASs) are commonly used in retrograde intra-renal surgery (RIRS). Despite their advantages, there is a risk of ureteral trauma during their placement andExpand
The use of self-retaining barbed suture for inner layer renorrhaphy significantly reduces warm ischemia time in laparoscopic partial nephrectomy: outcomes of a matched-pair analysis.
PURPOSE To investigate the efficacy of self-retaining barbed suture (SRBS) on reducing renorrhaphy time and warm ischemia time (WIT) during laparoscopic partial nephrectomy (LPN), in comparison withExpand
The increased transglutaminase 2 expression levels during initial tumorigenesis predict increased risk of metastasis and decreased disease-free and cancer-specific survivals in renal cell carcinoma
AbstractPurpose The aim of this study was to investigate the role of transglutaminase 2(TG2) in renal cell carcinoma (RCC) by comparing the immunohistochemistry staining of primary and metastaticExpand
The association between variant urothelial histologies, pathological stage and disease specific survival in patients with bladder cancer.
Objective We aimed to compare the oncological outcomes of patients with variant urothelial histologies (VH) with pure urothelial histology (PUH) in bladder cancer (BC) patients. Material andExpand
Laparoscopic Excision of Local Recurrence of Renal Cell Carcinoma
Laparoscopic excision of local recurrent renal cell carcinoma appears to be a feasible technique in wellselected patients with low-volume mass not involving adjacent organs.
