BACKGROUND Fournier's gangrene (FG) is an extensive fulminant infection of the genitals, perineum or the abdominal wall. The aim of this study is to share our experience with the management of this difficult infectious disease. METHODS Thirty-three male patients were admitted to our clinic with the diagnosis of FG between February 1988 and December 2003.(More)
OBJECTIVE To examine the histological differences in the inflammatory response and regenerative outcomes of distal vs proximal porcine small intestinal submucosa (SIS) grafts in the rat bladder, as SIS from distal small intestine yields reliable and reproducible bladder regeneration, while SIS from proximal portions of small intestine does not provide(More)
AIMS Enuresis is a child older than 5 years wetting in discrete portions during sleep. It has two subgroups: monosymptomatic enuresis nocturna (MSEN) and non-monosymptomatic enuresis nocturna (NMSEN). In this research, we specifically aimed to examine the effect of biofeedback in NMSEN. METHODS We retrospectively analyzed the hospital records of 182(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate the effect of biofeedback therapy on the residual urine volume in children with dysfunctional voiding. METHODS This prospective study was conducted in children with dysfunctional voiding associated with abnormal postvoid residual urine (PVR) from June 2002 to 2007. The children were divided randomly into 2 groups. Group 1 was(More)
OBJECTIVES It is well known that a relationship exists between vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) and dysfunctional voiding, and the spontaneous resolution rate in older children is lower than the rate in younger children. In this study, we analyzed our experience with biofeedback treatment in older children with confirmed voiding dysfunction and VUR and(More)
PURPOSE Relapse after cessation of desmopressin is an important problem in treating patients with enuresis. Structured withdrawal of desmopressin tablets has been shown to decrease relapse rates. However, scientific data are lacking on the structured withdrawal of the fast melting oral formulation of desmopressin. We compared relapse rates of structured(More)
PURPOSE The treatment approach for enuresis is controversial due to the lack of consensus as to the exact causes of nocturnal enuresis. Despite various treatment modalities, pharmacotherapy still appears to be the common choice. The aim of this prospective study was the evaluation of the efficacy of combination therapy (imipramine and oxybutynin) in(More)
AIMS To examine whether obstruction changes the expression of prostaglandins (PGs) in bladder, intravesical low-dose aspirin could be used as a new route of drug administration, this way of administration influences PGs' expression, and contractile function of the bladder is protected after treatment. METHODS Eighteen rabbits were divided into three(More)
