INTRODUCTION Visual laser ablation of the prostate (VLAP) has a clinical failure rate of up to 18% which is 3 times higher than transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) alone. Prolonged spontaneous passage of necrotic debris is the major shortcoming of this method. Therefore combined visual laser-assisted and transurethral prostatectomy was compared(More)
The disadvantages of highly flexible endoureteral (double J) stents in the face of tumor-induced extrinsic ureteral compression are a consequence of insufficient cross-sectional stability, leading to stent compression and thus to hydronephrosis or pyonephrosis. The newly developed tumor stent, which is used in cases of tumor-induced ureteral compression, is(More)
Das sporenbildende anaerobe Clostridium difficile ist ein problematischer Hospitalismuskeim. Die orale und parenterale Applikation von Antibiotika kann zu einer Störung des "ökologischen" Gleichgewichts der Darmflora führen mit Überwucherung präexistenter Mikroorganismen wie Clostridium difficile. Die Folge sind Durchfallerkrankungen, die ein Spektrum von(More)
The disadvantages of high flexible endoureteral stents (DJ) in case of tumorinduced extrinsic ureteral compression are due to an insufficient vertical stability of the used stents leading to stent-compression and consecutive hydro- or pyonephrosis. The new developed tumor-stent used in case of tumor-induced ureteral compression is available from 6 to 8(More)
The spore-forming anaerobic bacterium Clostridium difficile has become a serious enteropathogen. Oral and parenteral administration of antibiotics can cause ecological disturbances in the normal intestinal microflora. Suppression of the normal microflora may lead to reduced colonization resistance with subsequent overgrowth by pre-existing, naturally(More)
