The authors calculated the volume of the prostate by transrectal ultrasonography and evaluated prostate-specific antigen (PSA) in 108 patients with benign prostatic disease or with clinically suspected carcinoma and in 35 normal subjects. In each case the PSA value was related to the corresponding gland volume (V), which gives a PSA/V index. 32 patients(More)
INTRODUCTION Prostate-specific antigen (PSA) is the most important marker in the detection of prostate cancer, but its reliability is limited by a low specificity. To improve the specificity of PSA, a new parameter, based on the combination of free/total PSA (F/T) with PSA density, is proposed. MATERIALS AND METHODS From April 1999 to June 2003, a series(More)
Color Doppler and endorectal ultrasonography were performed in 25 patients with acute prostatic syndromes (APS; 13 acute and 12 chronic recurrent forms). In addition, 7 patients with asymptomatic chronic prostatitis, 13 men with prostatic carcinoma and 6 healthy young volunteers were studied. In the 25 APS, a marked increase in color was observed in the(More)
The proton-proton beam crossing at the LHC accelerator at CERN will have a rate of 40 MHz at the project luminosity. The ATLAS Trigger System has been designed in three levels in order to select only interesting physics events reducing from that rate of 40 MHz to the foreseen storage rate of about 200 Hz. The First Level reduces the output rate to about 100(More)
Nonspecific granulomatous prostatitis (NSGP) is a relatively uncommon type of chronic inflammation of the prostate, frequently mistaken for carcinoma on digital rectal examination, trans-rectal ultrasound (TRUS) and serum PSA test. It is presently the most frequent variety of granulomatous prostatitis observed at histological examination. The present study(More)
Partial parathyroidectomy (PTX) was carried out 20 times in 15 dialitic patients with chronic renal failure. The operation was suggested by marked radiological abnormalities due to severe secondary hyperparathyroidism, that developed despite aggressive medical and dietetic management. The skeletal x-ray examination showed significant improvement following(More)
Over a 20-months period, 63 patients with prostatic lesions less than or equal to 2 cm in size, detected at palpation or at ultrasonography (US), were followed-up with US-guided transperineal biopsy. Within the nodules located in the peripheral parts of the gland, and still confined within the capsule, focal cancer, chronic prostatitis and benign atypical(More)
