We prospectively investigated the safety and efficacy of sunitinib using a modified regimen (2 weeks on/1 week off) in 24 patients (22 males, 2 females ; age range 39-86 years, median 64 years) with metastatic renal cell carcinoma (RCC). During the observation period (3-62 weeks, median 21 weeks), thrombocytopenia was seen in 13 (54.2%), leukopenia in 11(More)
PURPOSE We investigated the impact of lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) on generic health-related quality of life (HRQOL) in male patients without co-morbidity. PATIENTS AND METHOD From 2003 to 2011, a total 567 men who presented out urological department completed the questionnaires including International Prostate Symptom Score (IPSS),(More)
We assessed the safety, and postoperative urinary status of holmium laser enucleation of the prostate (HoLEP) for the treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). Of the initial 117 patients who underwent HoLEP from November 2004 to March 2011, 49 were followed up for two yearsor longer. These 49 patients were evaluated once preoperatively, and at the(More)
A 29-year-old woman had undergone gastrocystoplasty with Mitrofanoff appendicovesicostomy for urethral trauma at 9 years of age. Since then, she was being followed up for performing clean intermittent self-catheterization at regular intervals. Twenty years after the surgery, she presented with gross hematuria. Ultrasonographic findings revealed bilateral(More)
The TNM classification of renal cell carcinoma was updated in 2009. In this new classification system, T3a consists of tumors with renal vein involvement and tumors with fat invasion. To assess risk factors for recurrence, we retrospectively reviewed 89 patients with pT3aN0M0 renal cell carcinoma who underwent radical or partial nephrectomy between 1992 and(More)
A 69-year-old man with left atrophic kidney was referred to our hospital because of a 5.7 cm solid mass in the lower pole of right kidney revealed by computed tomography for evaluation of aortic aneurysm. An open transperitoneal partial nephrectomy was performed, and final pathological diagnosis was clear cell carcinoma, grade 2, pT1b, pNx. One month(More)
We report a case of the rechallenge of everolimus for metastatic renal cell carcinoma (RCC) after successful recovery from grade 3 interstitial lung disease (ILD). A 76-year-old man with metastatic RCC developed grade 3 ILD one month after the initiation of everolimus therapy (10 mg/day). ILD subsided in 4 months after the withdrawal of everolimus and(More)
OBJECTIVE High-risk clinically localized prostate cancer is seen in a highly heterogeneous population with a wide variation of clinical aggressiveness and a novel subclassification for the better prediction of clinical outcomes is needed. The aim of this study is to validate a modified D'Amico risk criteria for substratification of high-risk prostate cancer(More)
Urosepsis is not uncommon and sometimes causes a critical condition including death. We retrospectivelyanaly zed the risk factors for mortalityin urosepsis. We treated 80 patients as urosepsis from 2010 to 2014 in our hospital. Five patients (6%) died within 30 days of hospitalization. The median age of the patients who died of urosepsis was 92 years(More)
(Purpose) We investigated the outcome of external-beam radiotherapy (EBRT) with neoadjuvant androgen deprivation therapy (NeoADT) for high-risk prostate cancer defined by National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) guideline. (Patients and method) From 2002 to 2013, 70 patients with high-risk prostate cancer (PSA ≥20 ng/ml or clinical T stage ≥T3a, Gleason(More)
