OBJECTIVE To investigate clinical benefits and safety of prostatic artery embolization (PAE) in patients with prostate volume ≥80 cm(3) and Charlson comorbidity index (CCI) ≥2 and affected by benign prostatic obstruction (BPO). PATIENTS AND METHODS From January 2009 to January 2012, PAE was performed in 88 consecutive patients affected by clinical BPO.(More)
PURPOSE We investigated deterioration of the success rate of penile and bulbar substitution urethroplasty. MATERIALS AND METHODS We performed a retrospective descriptive analysis of patients who underwent substitution urethroplasty between July 1994 and September 2007. Inclusion criteria included 1-stage anterior urethroplasty using penile skin or oral(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the feasibility, tolerability, safety and efficacy of using a new surgical technique for the repair of anterior urethral strictures to preserve vascular supply to the urethra and its entire muscular and neurogenic support. PATIENTS AND METHODS In all, 24 patients (mean age 46 years) underwent a new one-sided anterior dorsal oral(More)
PURPOSE Using pathological examination we evaluated the involvement of lichen sclerosus in urethral strictures in men. MATERIALS AND METHODS We performed an observational, descriptive, retrospective study of patients treated for genital lichen sclerosus who had at least 1 biopsy positive for lichen sclerosus. Study exclusion criteria were malignant penile(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate 1-year surgical and functional results and morbidities of prostatic artery embolization (PAE) vs open prostatectomy (OP). PATIENTS AND METHODS We undertook 1:1 matched-pair analysis (International Prostate Symptom Score [IPSS], peak flow [PF], postvoid residual [PVR], and prostate volume) of 287 consecutive patients treated for(More)
UNLABELLED WHAT'S KNOWN ON THE SUBJECT? AND WHAT DOES THE STUDY ADD?: The incidence of specific aetiologies of urethral stricture disease has been reported from a variety of series throughout the world. Most reported urethral stricture series are from single institutions or from a specific region of the world. We provide a multi-centred series to compare(More)
PURPOSE We present a new, 2-stage functional and cosmetic reconstruction of concealed penis in adults with short-term subjective outcomes. MATERIALS AND METHODS Patients with excess penile skin removal, shaft tissue scarring and penile retraction with poor functional and cosmetic results underwent 2-stage repair. At stage 1 after a coronal incision and(More)
Peyronie's disease has been associated with penile shortening and some degree of erectile dysfunction. Surgical reconstruction should be based on giving a functional penis, that is, rectifying the penis with rigidity enough to make the sexual intercourse. The procedure should be discussed preoperatively in terms of length and girth reconstruction in order(More)
INTRODUCTION Due to loss of length, patients who had penile prosthesis implantation for Peyronie's disease (PD) show a statistically significant reduction in their levels of satisfaction when compared with the general implant population. AIM The aim of this study is to report our experience of penile lengthening with circumferential graft during penile(More)
The long-term outcomes of 157 patients affected by Peyronie's disease (PD) who underwent penile straightening with Egydio's technique between January 2004 and December 2008 are reported. Only patients with PD who were stable for at least 6-12 months prior to surgery were enrolled in this study. Preoperative assessment included a dynamic echo colour Doppler(More)
