PURPOSE We report outcomes from tubularized incised plate repair of mid shaft and proximal hypospadias by a single surgeon. MATERIALS AND METHODS Chart review of all patients undergoing mid shaft and proximal hypospadias was performed. Those with tubularized incised plate were divided into 2 groups for mid shaft and proximal repairs. Group 1 underwent(More)
BACKGROUND Haemodialysis patients (HD) have been characterized by a high incidence and prevalence of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease. Based on the traditional cardiovascular risk factors in this population, we cannot explain this high incidence and prevalence. One of the mechanisms contributing to cardiovascular risk in HD patients may be to uraemic(More)
PURPOSE We evaluated factors affecting complication rates of ureteroscopy for pediatric ureteral calculi. MATERIALS AND METHODS We retrospectively evaluated 642 children who underwent ureteroscopy at 16 Turkish centers between 2000 and 2010. Semirigid ureteroscopy was used with various calibers to treat 670 ureteral units in 660 sessions. Complications(More)
AIM We administered a standardized questionnaire to parents and operating surgeon to determine their opinions regarding outcomes from tubularized incised plate (TIP) hypospadias repair. METHODS Likert scale questionnaires were used to assess six outcomes: overall penile appearance, cosmesis of meatus and skin, penile size, straightness during erection,(More)
PURPOSE Factors influencing outcomes of dextranomer/hyaluronic acid injection for vesicoureteral reflux remain poorly defined. We performed multivariate analysis of the experience of 1 surgeon (WS). MATERIALS AND METHODS The study group contained 168 patients and 259 refluxing units. Goal of injection was coaptation of the orifice with creation of a(More)
Ureteroscopy in children with miniaturized instruments is becoming popular with the advent of pediatric ureteroscopes and laser lithotriptors. We had been performing pediatric ureteroscopies with a 7.5 Fr. semirigid ureteroscope and pneumatic lithotriptor, used in adults as well. Herein, we present our experience in pediatric ureteroscopy with a semirigid(More)
PURPOSE We performed a detailed study of the lower urinary tract of the male and female human fetus to elucidate the anatomy of the urethral sphincter complex in both sexes and its relationship to the surrounding organs and tissues. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 12 male and 14 female normal human pelvic specimens ranging from 17.5 to 38 weeks of(More)
AIM AND BACKGROUND Posttransplant vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) is a common urologic complication after renal transplantation, although its management is controversial. The treatment of choice is open surgical revision ureteral reimplantation with significant morbidity. Recently, endoscopic correction by using nonanimal dextranomer/hyaluronic acid copolymer(More)
OBJECTIVES To investigate the urodynamic profiles of adults with primary nocturnal enuresis (PNE) and the association of the urodynamic profile findings with the efficacy of desmopressin and/or tolterodine pharmacotherapy. At least 2% of adults are enuretic during the night. The diagnostic and treatment approach for PNE is empirically the same in children(More)
PURPOSE The mechanism of human erection requires the coordination of an intact neuronal system that includes the cavernous, perineal, and dorsal nerves of the penis. We defined the communication of these 3 nerves that travel under the pubic arch using specific neuronal immunohistochemical staining and 3-dimensional reconstruction imaging technique. (More)
