PURPOSE Standard cystectomy for bladder cancer in males and females includes removal of organs that are vital to normal sexual function. We report the initial results of modified cystectomy in males and females meant to preserve all sexual function, called sexuality preserving cystectomy and neobladder. MATERIALS AND METHODS Sexuality preserving(More)
Bellini Duct Carcinoma (BDC) or collecting duct carcinoma is a rare but very aggressive renal neoplasm which originates from the epithelium of the ducts of Bellini in the distal tubule. This tumour often occurs in a young population and has a bad prognosis. Histomorphological differentiation from the more common renal cell carcinoma of the proximal tubuli(More)
Urachal carcinoma of the bladder is a very rare tumor which has to be differentiated from primary adenocarcinoma of the urinary bladder. The treatment of choice is extended partial cystectomy with inclusion of the umbilicus and the peritoneum. Symptoms occur late and the diagnosis has to be made by preoperative transurethral biopsy. We herein report on 3(More)
In this article an analogy between temperature-dependent and concentration-dependent bacterial killing is described. The validation process of autoclaves uses parameters such as reduction rate constant k, decimal reduction time D and resistance coefficient z from an imaginary microorganism to describe the sterilization process. Total lethality of the(More)
We study the diffuse transport of light through polymer slabs containing TiO(2) scattering particles. The slabs are diffuser plates typical of a commercial white light-emitting diode (LED) module (Fortimo). We have measured the diffuse transmission and reflection properties over a broad wavelength range (470-840 nm) from which we derive the transport mean(More)
We study light transport in phosphor plates of white light-emitting diodes (LEDs). We measure the broadband diffuse transmission through phosphor plates of varying YAG:Ce(3+) density. We distinguish the spectral ranges where absorption, scattering, and re-emission dominate. Using diffusion theory, we derive the transport and absorption mean free paths from(More)

We have investigated the transport of light through slabs that both scatter and strongly absorb, a situation that occurs in diverse application fields ranging from biomedical optics, powder technology, to solid-state lighting. In particular, we study the transport of light in the visible wavelength range between 420 and 700 nm through silicone plates filled(More)
