A total of 66 bladder cancer patients were studied to verify possible relationships between HER-2/neu alterations and pathological characteristics, and to define a poor prognosis patient subgroup with respect to time to recurrence, time to progression and survival. Tumor and healthy tissue specimens were analyzed for HER-2/neu DNA amplification and protein(More)
Adenocarcinoma of the rete testis is a rare tumor. In nearly all patients metastases occur early to the lymph nodes, lungs, corpus testis, skin, liver and bone. Patients seldom survive longer than 1 year. Treatment consists of inguinal orchiectomy but the metastatic lesions have been resistant to radiation and/or chemotherapy.

MATERIALS AND METHODS Eight patients with squamous cell carcinoma and 2 with leiomyosarcoma of the penis underwent bilateral modified inguinal(More)
Transrectal dynamic ultrasonography is a 3 dimensional study that identifies accurately bladder neck (B.N.) diseases during micturition, providing precise noninvasive images of the B.N. orifice and the posterior urethra. This technique requires a 7-10 Mhz high frequency linear transducer. Benign Prostaic Hyperplasia (BPH) may restrict the urethral lumen and(More)

The echo color doppler allows an easy topographical distinction of the spermatic reflux (in front of the deferens) from cremasteric one (back to the deferens). This distinction consents a rational surgical choice, the selective interruption of the refluent vein and a less morbidity due to the surgical intervention. We evaluated 20 infertile patients (mean(More)
