PURPOSE We identified structural abnormalities in the spermatic cord nerves that may explain how microsurgical denervation of the spermatic cord provides pain relief in patients with chronic orchialgia. MATERIALS AND METHODS We retrospectively reviewed a prospective database to compare spermatic cord biopsy specimens from 56 men treated with a total of 57(More)

The initial reports of robotic assisted microsurgery began to appear in the early 1990s. Animal and early human studies were the initial publications. Larger series papers have recently been published from a few institutions. The field of robotic assisted microsurgery is still in evolution and so are adjunctive tools and instruments. It is clearly a(More)
Robotically assisted microsurgery or telemicrosurgery is a new technique using robotic telemanipulators. This allows for the addition of optical magnification (which defines conventional microsurgery) to robotic instrument arms to allow the microsurgeon to perform complex microsurgical procedures. There are several possible applications for this platform in(More)
Recent advances in telemedicine and robotically assisted telesurgery may offer advanced surgical care for the geographically remote patient. Similar advances in tele-anesthesia will be necessary to optimize perioperative care for these patients. Although many preliminary investigations into tele-anesthesia are underway, none involves remote performance of(More)
in this manuscript adds valuable assessment data to continue our journey in exploring potential benefits or disadvantages of this technology. 1 As more robotic platforms become available and as the technology evolves, it is likely that the application and use of such technology will only continue to expand further. If we can use this technology to allow(More)
Carcinosarcomas of the ureter are rare biphasic neoplasms, composed of both malignant epithelial (carcinomatous) and malignant mesenchymal (sarcomatous) components. Carcinosarcomas of the urinary tract are exceedingly rare. We report a unique case of a carcinosarcoma of the ureter with a chondrosarcoma and small cell tumor component arising in a 68-year-old(More)
The increased application of the da Vinci robotic platform (Intuitive Surgical Inc.) for microsurgery has led to the development of new adjunctive surgical instrumentation. In microsurgery, the robotic platform can provide high definition 12×-15× digital magnification, broader range of motion, fine instrument handling with decreased tremor, reduced surgeon(More)
Objective. To investigate feasibility of multiport and laparoendoscopic single-site (LESS) nonischemic laparoscopic partial nephrectomy (NI-LPN) utilizing bipolar radiofrequency coagulator. Methods. Multicenter retrospective review of 60 patients (46 multiport/14 LESS) undergoing NI-LPN between 4/2006 and 9/2009. Multiport and LESS NI-LPN utilized Habib 4X(More)
