During the period January 1983 to December 1993 malformations of the urinary tract were suspected in 166 cases prenatally and confirmed after birth. Boys dominated (72% of cases); in 66% of the cases the malformation was unilateral. The most frequent diagnosis was ureteropelvic obstruction in 74 infants (45%). 73 out of 166 infants (44%) required surgical(More)
The objective of this study was to test the hypothesis that ischemia reperfusion damage in kidney transplantation is associated with lipid peroxidation and that inhibition of lipid peroxidation by antioxidants improves the function of the transplanted kidney. Lipid peroxidation was assessed by measuring the plasma malonaldehyde content (as thiobarbituric(More)
We report five cases of nephrogenic adenoma that arose several years after cadaver kidney transplantation. Cystoscopy was performed in all patients because of gross haematuria and revealed multifocal tumorous lesions in all parts of the bladder. On admission to of hospital graft function was satisfactory in all patients. There were three female and two male(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of the study was to compare preoperative transrectal ultrasound findings with final histopathological stage after radical prostatectomy to determine the value of TRUS in preoperative staging of prostate cancer. METHODS The evaluation was performed as a retrospective study. In 114 radical prostatectomy specimens the histopathological,(More)
OBJECTIVE To report the results of transurethral submucosal injection therapy of polydimethylsiloxane (PDS) to treat incontinence after radical prostatectomy (RP). PATIENTS AND METHODS Since 1993, about 80 retropubic RPs have been carried out at our institution each year. Severe post-operative incontinence occurred in six patients, with a mean duration of(More)
Over a period of 1.5 years (July 1989-Jan. 1991), a total of 504 patients, 442 of them suffering from spinal cord injuries with subsequent voiding disorders, were investigated by ultrasonography of the genitourinary tract. Ultrasonography of the upper urinary tract as well as the bladder and prostate provided and accurate image of the pathomorphological(More)
This study was performed to evaluate the hypothesis that oxygen radicals/lipid peroxidation are involved in reperfusion injury in humans. The study included 37 patients, who underwent surgical revascularization operations for kidney transplantation (9 subjects) or limb salvage (28 subjects). Peripheral venous blood samples were taken 30 min before starting(More)
Within the wide armamentarium of urinary stone treatment modalities extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL) has been established as the first line procedure. With the Dornier MPL-9000X lithotriptor one has the choice of ultrasound or fluoroscopic localization of calculi throughout the entire urinary tract. Except for the kidney, ultrasound guidance is(More)
Hydroxyethylstarch (HES) is today one of the most frequently used artificial plasma substitutes in prehospital, as well as in clinical settings. However, there are no studies comparing the volume effect of different HES solutions. The goals of the present study therefore were to compare the volume effect of three HES solutions, which are similar with regard(More)
