PURPOSE We report the results of the combination of enterocystoplasty and a periurethral expander, a simplified type of artificial sphincter, in the treatment of urinary incontinence. MATERIALS AND METHODS The new 1-piece device has an adjustable cuff connected to a port positioned at the subcutaneous space in the abdomen. The cuff is adjusted to the(More)
OBJECTIVES We evaluated retrospectively, the long-term outcome of patients with post-prostatectomy urinary incontinence (PPUI) after placement of the Periurethral Constrictor (PUC). MATERIALS AND METHODS Fifty-six men with severe PPUI were studied, with a mean age of 68.5 years old. Fifty-one men had PPUI due to radical surgery having the device placed(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE To assess the safety and feasibility of transcontinental telementored and telepresence surgery, we report on two procedures carried out with participation by surgeons in Baltimore in the United States and São Paulo and Recife in Brazil. PATIENTS AND METHODS Over a period of 3 months, a laparoscopic bilateral varicocelectomy and a(More)
We report the results of experimental and clinical studies in which a de-epithelialized segment of sigmoid colon was used to cover the bladder dome where the mucosa was exposed (auto-augmentation) to increase bladder capacity. Experimentally, the technique was performed in 10 healthy female mongrel dogs and the intestinal segments established continuity(More)
PURPOSE We present long-term results on the use of demucosalized intestine for reconstructive surgery of the bladder. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 129 bladder augmentations with demucosalized intestine were performed in 123 patients (55% males and 45% females) 3 months to 53 years old during the last 10 years. Of the patients 82 presented with(More)
PURPOSE Children and young adults treated with augmentation procedures with total intestinal flaps are at increased risk for specific complications in the long term. The aim of the present study was to demonstrate the long-term results of demucosalized bladder augmentation. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 183 patients (92 males and 91 females) were(More)
The acute toxicity, cytotoxicity, genotoxicity and antigenotoxic effects of BC were studied. Cytotoxicity of BC was evaluated in cultured C3A hepatoma cells (HepG2/C3A) using a lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) activity assay. Acute toxicity was tested in adults Wistar rats treated with a single dose of BC. The genotoxicity of BC was evaluated in vivo by the(More)
INTRODUCTION One of the main problems faced by surgeons involved in male genitalia surgeries, in particular in children with hypospadias, is the type of dressing and its use during the post-operatory period. MATERIALS AND METHODS From a multidisciplinary project involving the use of sugarcane biopolymer membrane developed in the last 10 years, produced by(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the long-term effects of the periurethral expander, a new device for the treatment of urinary incontinence in children. PATIENTS AND METHODS Twenty-five patients (mean age 11.2 years, range 3-22) had a periurethral expander implanted around the bladder neck within the last 41 months. Twelve of these patients had neurogenic bladders(More)
