PURPOSE Incontinence affects between 3% and 60% of patients after radical prostatectomy. Insertion of an artificial urinary sphincter is a mainstay therapeutic option available to these patients. We assessed patient satisfaction, outcome and complications long after artificial urinary sphincter implantation. MATERIALS AND METHODS From a data bank of 131(More)
OBJECTIVES To determine the relationship between angiogenesis and various histopathologic features as well as clinical outcome in patients with localized renal cell carcinoma (RCC). METHODS Microvessel density was quantified by using immunocytochemical staining of endothelial cells for factor VIII-related antigen of 36 specimens taken from patients with(More)
PURPOSE We assessed the merit of dynamic half Fourier acquisition, single shot turbo spin-echo sequence T2-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for evaluating pelvic organ prolapse and all other female pelvic pathology by prospectively correlating clinical with imaging findings. MATERIALS AND METHODS From September 1997 to April 1998, 100 consecutive(More)
Objectives. To evaluate the use of interposition flaps in repairing vesicovaginal fistulas (VVFs) of benign and malignant etiologies. Interposition flaps are not routinely used in the repair of VVFs when the surrounding tissues appear healthy and well-vascularized, such as in a benign etiology.Methods. We retrospectively reviewed the charts of 37 women(More)
PURPOSE This ongoing study evaluates the safety and efficacy of a new minimally invasive sling procedure for treating post-prostatectomy incontinence. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 16 men 56 to 74 years old (mean age 67) underwent the procedure using the Straight-In bone anchoring system. Time after prostatectomy was 1.5 to 5 years (mean 2.5). Of the(More)
PURPOSE Many patients with voiding dysfunction find clean intermittent catheterization unsatisfactory. We evaluated the efficacy of the new remote controlled intraurethral In-Flow Catheter insert for treating women with voiding dysfunction. MATERIALS AND METHODS We evaluated the efficacy of the intraurethral insert in 92 women with a mean age of 56 years.(More)
PURPOSE Durasphere is gaining popularity as a bulking agent for treating women with stress urinary incontinence. We present a series of patients with periurethral mass formation following Durasphere injection. MATERIALS AND METHODS The charts of 135 women with a mean age of 69.4 years (range 46 to 83) who underwent Durasphere periurethral injections were(More)
PURPOSE We determined the reported prevalence of infectious osseous complications due to the use of bone anchors for suture fixation in female pelvic reconstructive procedures. In addition, the type and method of bone anchors as well as the reported pathogens associated with osseous infections were reviewed. MATERIALS AND METHODS Primary reported series(More)
The purpose of this ongoing study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of new minimally invasive pervaginam cystourethropexy and sling procedures for the treatment of female genuine stress urinary incontinence. A total of 75 women (mean age, 52.8 years) underwent either a cystourethropexy or a sling procedure. A miniature bone anchor and a staple-like(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of the current study is to report the long-term follow-up of women treated with the In-Flowtrade mark device for periods longer than 1 year. Abstract METHODS The efficacy of the intraurethral insert was evaluated in 92 women. Data regarding their urodynamic diagnosis, complications and satisfaction were collected. RESULTS Early and(More)
