OBJECTIVE To determine the changes in number and morphology of interstitial cells of Cajal (ICC)-like cells (ICC-LC) at the ureteropelvic junction (UPJ) of rats after experimental distal ureteral obstruction. MATERIALS AND METHODS Of a total of 109 rats, 20 served as controls (C), 20 underwent sham-operations (SH) and 69 were in the study (S) groups. The(More)
PURPOSE We analyzed long-term results after percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) in patients with impaired renal function. PATIENTS AND METHODS Nineteen (6.3%) of 300 patients who underwent PCNL had serum creatinine values above 1.4 mg/dL before surgery and were considered to have impaired renal function. Success rate of operation, recurrence rate, and(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the outcome of subureteral injections by using calcium hydroxyapatite (CaHa), dextranomer/hyaluronic acid copolymer (Dx/HA), and polydimethylsiloxane (PDS) in patients with end-stage renal failure (ESRF) who have vesicoureteral reflux (VUR). PATIENTS AND METHODS One hundred-one patients (166 renal units) with ESRF secondary to VUR were(More)
OBJECTIVES To review our experiences with percutaneous nephrolithotomy in children with complex renal calculi. PATIENTS AND METHODS We retrospectively analyzed the records of 31 children with complex renal calculi who were treated by percutaneous nephrolithotomy at 2 hospitals of our university between June 2003 and June 2008. The mean age of the patients(More)
PURPOSE We retrospectively analyzed the results of percutaneous nephrolithotomy operations for treatment of staghorn kidney stone disease in elderly patients and compared surgical parameters and outcomes with a control group of young adult patients. PATIENTS AND METHOD Between 2002 and 2010, 300 consecutive patients underwent percutaneous nephrolithotomy(More)
This study aimed to compare the results of percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) in patients with impaired renal function (IRF) and normal renal function (NRF). Records of 300 consecutive patients who underwent PCNL from July 2002 to July 2005 were retrospectively reviewed. Nineteen patients (6.3%) had serum creatinine values higher than 1.5 mg/dl before(More)
OBJECTIVES To examine our retrospective data on the outcomes of intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) and to determine whether a history of varicocele repair in men with nonobstructive azoospermia (NOA) undergoing an ICSI cycle was optimizing or not. METHODS This retrospective study was conducted on Baskent University Department of Obstetrics and(More)
PURPOSE We analyzed the results of patients who underwent percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) for management of kidney stone disease under combined spinal-epidural anesthesia and compared surgical parameters and outcomes with a matched control group who underwent PCNL under general anesthesia. PATIENTS AND METHODS A total of 82 patients were studied in(More)
OBJECTIVE To perform conventional and microdissection testicular sperm extraction (TESE) at the same session and compare their effectiveness. DESIGN Prospective comparative study. SETTING University hospital setting. PATIENT(S) The study included 335 patients with nonobstructive azoospermia. INTERVENTION(S) Microdissection TESE was performed to 77(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)
