Thermoregulation in the canine prostate during transurethral microwave hyperthermia, Part II: Blood flow response.


Recent studies on transurethral-applied local hyperthermia in both the canine and human prostate have revealed significant effects of natural thermoregulation on the therapeutical results in the prostate. Using a thermal clearance method, blood perfusion rates were measured within different regions in the canine prostate under normal and hyperthermic… (More)
