OBJECTIVES The lymph node metastasis is an important prognostic factor in prostatic cancer. The aim of this prospective study was to evaluate the relevance of the sentinel lymph node biopsy by laparoscopy in staging locoregional patients with clinically localized PC. PATIENTS AND METHODS A transrectal ultrasound-guided injection by 0.3 mL/100 MBq(More)
The incidence of significant renal anomalies in 38 patients with Turner's syndrome was 26 per cent (10 of 38 cases). An additional 11 per cent of the patients have insignificant renal abnormalities and 63 per cent apparently have normal excretory urograms. In this series there seemed to be no correlation of the incidence of abnormalities with either the(More)
Kidney cancer accounts for 3% of all cancers, with approximately 85% of tumors arising in the renal parenchyma (renal cell carcinoma). To evaluate the part of the incidental detection of the renal carcinoma, we performed a retrospective review of the 302 patients treated for this reason in our department between April 1981 and October 1992. For the purpose(More)
AIM To analyse current practice patterns and to evaluate (long-term) effectiveness and adverse events of sacral neuromodulation with InterStim™ Therapy based on data collected in a national register and to discuss the strengths and weaknesses of the register. PATIENTS AND METHODS This is a French multicenter prospective observational trial including(More)
BACKGROUND This is the first report of FDG-PET findings in a case of vaginal melanoma. CASE The tumor arose from the anterior wall of the vaginal canal. As the tumor was limited to the vaginal wall and as there was no evidence of distant metastases, the disease was staged as IIC (AJCC 2002). PET-CT images showed two mediastinal foci localized to the left(More)
To evaluate the therapeutic impact of 18F-fluorocholine (FCH) PET/CT in biochemical recurrent prostate cancer (PC) and to investigate the value of quantitative FCH PET/CT parameters in predicting progression-free survival (PFS). This retrospective study included 172 consecutive patients with PC who underwent FCH PET/CT for biochemical recurrence. Mean(More)
OBJECTIVE To define the normality of voiding behavior in women. METHOD We evaluated 161 women of all ages, consulting in general practice for problems other than voiding disorders. Women were tested with the International Prostatic Symptom Score (I-PSS), originally defined to evaluate patients with benign prostatic hyperplasia, in view of the nonprostatic(More)
OBJECTIVE To describe the histologic features of canine distichiasis using excised tarsoconjunctival specimens that included roots of distichiatic cilia. PROCEDURES The study group included 21 strips of cilia-bearing tarsoconjunctiva resected from 20 dogs with distichiasis. Eyelid tissue specimens were also collected from 11 euthanized dogs without(More)
Carcinoma of the papillary ducts of Bellini is a rare form of renal cancer. Patients are usually asymptomatic middle-aged men who frequently have metastatic disease at the time of diagnosis. The diagnosis is based on histological examination of the nephrectomy specimen with a precise immunohistochemical examination. Radical nephrectomy is the first-line(More)
We have reviewed the files of 145 patients who had presented with cancer of the renal parenchyma between March, 1985, and May, 1990. In 30.4% of cases, these cancers were discovered incidentally, ie. before the occurrence of any suggestive symptoms. In 66.7% of cases, the credit for this early detection was due to the ultrasound study prescribed by the(More)
