Bulboprostatic anastomotic urethroplasty was performed in 20 children with posterior urethral strictures secondary to bony pelvic fractures. The approach was perineal in 4 children and transpubic abdominoperineal in 16, with good postoperative results in 100 and 62.5%, respectively. In some children the urethral disruption occurred within the prostate(More)
PURPOSE We evaluated botulinum-A toxin (Botox) injection into the urethral urinary sphincter in children with nonneurogenic neurogenic bladder to decrease urethral resistance and improve voiding. In these patients alpha-blocker medications had failed and injection was an alternative to unavailable biofeedback. MATERIALS AND METHODS Prospective treatment(More)
An expert committee, appointed by the Executive Committee of the World Association for the Advancement of Veterinary Parasitology (W.A.A.V.P.), presents its proposal for uniform and proper terminology to denominate animal parasitic diseases or infections. In principle, the disease name is constructed solely by the suffix -osis, which is added to the stem of(More)
Alpha-blockers have been established as medical expulsive therapy for urolithiasis. We aimed to assess the effect of tamsulosin and doxazosin as adjunctive therapy following SWL for renal calculi. We prospectively included 150 patients who underwent up to four SWL sessions for renal stones from June 2008 to 2009. Patients were randomized into three groups(More)
Seventy boys, aged 6-13 years were subjected to periodic oral vitamin A program. Non-parasitized boys (n = 63) responded to the oral treatment with significant increase in plasma retinol level, even five weeks after the end of oral treatment. On the other hand, boys infested with parasites, none of whom had originally acceptable plasma-retinol level, did(More)
Urethral pressure profiles (in vivo), opening pressures, and flow rates at opening pressure (in vitro) were determined for female, male, pregnant, ovariectomized (OVX), OVX and then estrogen-treated, and OVX and then progesterone-treated rabbits. Using the isolated whole-urethra preparation, we determined the opening pressures and flow rates as well as the(More)
