INTRODUCTION The aim of this study was to compare lymphatic drainage patterns detected with fluorescent dye indocyanine green (ICG) with the lymphatic drainage patterns detected with radiotracer (99m)Tc-nanocolloid in dynamic sentinel node biopsy (DSNB) procedures. PATIENTS AND METHODS Fourteen patients with penile cancer and no palpable lymph nodes were(More)
INTRODUCTION Near infrared (NIR) technology has recently garnered much interest as a tool for intraoperative image-guided surgery in various surgical sub-disciplines. In urology, although nascent, NIR technology is also fostering much enthusiasm. This review discusses the two major fluorophores, indocyanine green (ICG) and methlyene blue (MB), with NIR(More)
INTRODUCTION The repair of complex urethrorectal fistulas, which can be the result of treating prostate cancer with radical prostatectomy, is a big problem in urology and its final result is not always satisfactory. There are no universally accepted methods for repairing such fistulas. In our work we present a retrospective analysis of patients treated for(More)
INTRODUCTION In the second part of this paper, concerning the use of invisible near infrared light (NIR) fluorescence with indocyanine green (ICG) and methylene blue (MB) in urology, other possible uses of this new technique will be presented. In kidney transplantation, this concerns allograft perfusion and real time NIR-guided angiography; moreover,(More)
Invasion and migration of cancer cells are crucial for the formation of secondary lesions. These require activation of signalling cascades modulated by the number of regulatory molecules. One such molecule is CD151, a member of evolutionary conserved tetraspanin family. CD151 is involved in cell adhesion, motility and cancer progression due to formation of(More)
INTRODUCTION The aim of the study was to compare 2 methods of the sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB) procedure in bladder cancer: we applied technetium radiocolloid (RadCol) detected by a gamma ray detection probe, and indocyanine green (ICG) detected by a near-infrared fluorescent (NIRF) camera. MATERIAL AND METHODS The SLNB was performed on 50 patients(More)
INTRODUCTION We present the effect of hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) after radiotherapy for cancer in the pelvic cavity resulting in hematuria. Increasing the pressure of oxygen (PO2) in ischemic tissues favors the formation of new blood vessels and increases the secretion of collagen. MATERIAL AND METHODS We evaluated 10 patients who were treated with(More)
We have recently read the work of van der Poel et al. with great interest [1] and would like to congratulate them for it is a very important step forward in near-infrared (NIR) fluorescence navigation surgery. This study was performed based on excellent preclinical laboratory and animal studies [2,3]; indocyanine green (ICG) and 99m technetium radioactive(More)
