OBJECTIVE To investigate the efficacy of plain radiography and ultrasonography, each as the sole imaging tool as well as combined, for detecting renal stones using unenhanced computed tomography as a standard reference. Ultrasonography and plain radiography of the kidneys, ureters, and bladder are often used for urinary tract stone detection, but the(More)
Ovarian-type epithelial tumors of the testes and paratestes are very rare. Mucinous subtypes of such tumors are extremely rare; only 25 cases have been reported to date. Ovarian-type epithelial tumors are histologically classified into cystadenomas, borderline tumors, and carcinomas. We herein report a case involving a 60-year-old man with a primary(More)
Migration of hernia mesh into the bladder is a rare complication of inguinal hernioplasty. We present the case of an 85-year-old man who complained of hematuria and fever some 20 years after right hernioplasty. Cystoscopy and computed tomography revealed mesh migration into the right anterior wall of the bladder. Laparoscopic partial cystectomy with(More)
A necrotizing fasciitis especially caused by group A streptococcal infection is a life-threatening disease. This infection cause death due to septic shock and multiple organ failure in a short time without the immediate and adequate treatment. Currently a rapid test kit for streptococcal pharyngitis (strep A) is useful for prediction of group A(More)
We prospectively randomized total 29 patients with renal stones into two groups between Aug 2014 and March 2016. The US group was treated using a ultrasonic lithotripter (Swiss LithoClast® Master) and the PN group was treated with a pneumatic lithotripter (Swiss LithoClast® ). We compared treatment outcomes in these groups. The US group consisted of 17(More)
Russell-Silver syndrome (RSS) is a type of primordial dwarfism. Only one case of testicular cancer in RSS has been reported, the pathology of which was nonseminoma. Here, we report a case of seminoma in a 36-year-old man who was diagnosed with RSS at birth. The seminoma was diagnosed when the patient presented with testicular torsion. This is the first(More)
Accurate perception information of the surroundings is a desirable feature in any cyber-physical system for autonomous robotics. Besides, providing a cost-wise solution to this need, is also useful for developing other kinds of applications such as mapping, decision-making, self-localization, among others. In this work, we present and benchmark a(More)
