OBJECTIVES Renal ischemia-reperfusion injury (IRI), leading to acute kidney injury, is a frequent complication with renal transplantation and it is associated with graft function. Its pathogenesis involves ischemia, vascular congestion and reactive oxygen metabolites. Carvedilol is an antihypertensive drug with potent anti-oxidant properties. In this study(More)
A differential diagnosis of common bacterial peritonitis and appendicitis is difficult in continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) patients, and thus the definite diagnosis of appendicitis is often delayed. In this case, a 60-year-old man undergoing CAPD was at first diagnosed with bacterial peritonitis but not appendicitis, and antibiotics were(More)
We studied the usefulness of prostate cancer screening using prostate specific antigen (PSA) and PSA density (PSAD). In the first year of this screening (1995), we detected prostate cancer in 11 out of 550 (1.7%) subjects. Only 33 of the 47 (70%) subjects whose PSA values were greater than the cut-off value could be followed the following year. The(More)
The prognostic factor was retrospectively analyzed in 52 castration-resistant prostate cancer treated with docetaxel (DTX) in our institutions from April, 2006 to August, 2009. The treatment outcomes were decided with prostate specific antigen (PSA) progression-free survival and overall survival. These were calculated by Kaplan-Meier methods and tested with(More)
An 18-year-old male was admitted to our hospital because of massive gross hematuria. Ultrasound and computerized tomographic (CT) scan revealed a solid left intrarenal mass with renal pelvic invasion and tumor thrombus in the left renal vein. Radical nephrectomy with intravenous tumor thrombectomy was performed. The left kidney weighted 354 g. Histological(More)
OBJECTIVES We compared sexual function by the expanded prostate cancer index composite (sexual domains of EPIC), health-related quality of life (SF-8), and International Prostate Symptom Score (I-PSS) inpatients using tadalafil after prostate brachytherapy (PB). Forty-five patients who underwent PB between April 2011 and January 2014 were included in this(More)
Between January 2005 and August 2010, transurethral lithotripsy (TUL) was performed in 117 patients with upper urinary tract stones. TUL was performed without the basket catheter ZeroTipTM in 50 patients (group A) and with ZeroTip TM in 67 patients (group B). There was no significant difference in the successful stone disintegration rate between group A(More)
