PURPOSE: To compare effects of transcutaneous posterior tibial nerve stimulation (TPTNS) and pelvic floor muscle training (PFMT) in women with overactive bladder syndrome (OAB). MATERIAL AND METHODS: We randomized 67 women ? 18 years with OAB to three parallel groups: group I (n = 22) received life-style recommendations (LSR) only; group II (n = 24) had LSR + PFMT and group III (n = 21) had LSR + PFMT + TPTNS. Urgency, evaluated by a 3-day voiding diary before treatment and six weeks later, was the main outcome measure...

Plasmacytoid urothelial carcinoma is a rare and aggressive form of urothelial carcinoma characterized with delayed presentation and poor prognosis. Very few cases of this carcinoma have been reported in the literature. Here, we report and discuss two cases of bladder plasmacytoid urothelial carcinoma of a 57-year-old male presentedwith renal colic, and a 33-year-old female presented with macroscopic hematuria. Pathologic examinations of thetransurethral biopsies revealed urothelial carcinoma with plasmacytoid appearance...

PURPOSE: There is a lack of reporting of the bladder cuff pathology in the literature and ongoing debate regarding the role of bladder cuff excision (BCE) in the prognosis in patients with upper tract urothelial carcinoma (UTUC). We aimed to know the risk factors, the survival, and the clinical course of such pathology. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The study was retrospective, from 1983-2013 on 305 patients who had diagnosed with UTUC. Patients were managed by radical open/ laparoscopic nephroureterectomy with bladder cuff excision...

Spontaneous Retroperitoneal hemorrhage in pregnancy is a rare condition. Renal angiomyolipoma (RA) is the most common cause of this hemorrhage. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first reported case of Wunderlich syndrome (WS) due to renal cell carcinoma (RCC) diagnosed in the second trimester of pregnancy.

PURPOSE: The objective was to compare the efficacy of 99mTc-MDP-BS, 18F-FDG-PET/CT and 18F-FCH-PET/CT in detecting bone metastases in prostate cancer patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS: 56 patients diagnosed with prostate cancer underwent 99mTc-methylendiphosphonates bone scintigraphy (99mTc-MDP-BS) and fluorine-18-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography (18F-FDG-PET/CT) or fluorine-18-fluorocholine PET/CT (18F-FCH-PET/CT) within six weeks...

We report a female patient diagnosed with retrocaval ureter (RCU) after ureteral reimplantation for vesicoureteral reflux (VUR). She was diagnosed as right grade IV VUR with breakthrough urinary tract infections, and underwent ureteral reimplantation with Cohen cross-trigonal technique. Thereafter, she developed severe right hydronephrosis associated with RCU, which was presumably due to caudal traction of right ureter at ureteral reimplantation. Sheunderwent uretero-ureterostomy anterior to the inferior vena cava, and recovered well...

PURPOSE: Insufficient alleviation of pain after percutaneous nephrolithotomy causes patient dissatisfaction and generates additional morbidity factors by preventing early mobilization. This study investigated the effects of bupivacaine infiltration with two different doses around the nephrostomy tract after percutaneous nephrolithotomy. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Patients who underwent subcostal single entrance percutaneous nephrolithotomy were randomly divided into 3 groups of 20 patients...

PURPOSE: Urethral stricture, known as a scar formation leading to urethral lumen stricture in sub-epithelial tissue, is the most common late complication of transurethral prostate resection (TURP). The aim of study is to evaluate efficacy of colchicine treatment in preventing urethral stricture recurrence in patients after internal urethrotomy, and to determine whether colchicine treatment had a sustained effect in decreasing stricture recurrences in patients with concomitant diseases...

PURPOSE: To compare the pain status and stone free rates of flexible ureterorenoscopy (F-URS) versus mini-percutaneousnephrolithotomy (mini-PNL) for the treatment of 1-to 2-cm renal stones. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This study was retrospectively designed with match paired method. Between January 2013 and December 2016, 387 patients underwent stone surgery for renal stones, 45 patients underwent FURS and 45 patients underwent mini-PNL. 90 patients were divided into two groups according to the surgical procedures...

Male sling for urinary incontinence is usually accompanied by very good results, with a small number of complications,but, when appear, they may be redundant. Voluminous urethral stone developed on suburethral sling as a result of sling erosion into the proximal urethra is an extremely rare complication (following the analysis of cases published on the internet, the authors of this article no longer identified another similar case). We present the case of a patient who presented in our clinic for severe and permanent urinary incontinence, perineal discomfortand pain that was influenced by position...

The present study is a pilot sub-analysis from PRESIDEN to determine if ED or plasma testosterone (TST) level in controlled hypertensive patients may be associated with comorbidities and/or plasma nitrite+nitrate and antioxidant capacity. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Forty-four hypertensive individuals were aleatory selected from PRESIDEN study, matching by age (28 showing ED and 16 without ED)...

PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to identify factors that can be used to predict severe neutropenia (grade 3 or higher) in patients with advanced urothelial cancer after cisplatin-based systemic chemotherapy. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The study examined 79 Korean patients with advanced urothelial cancer who were treated with several cycles of cisplatin-based systemic chemotherapy from May 2006 to May 2015. Risk factors for neutropenia (grade 3 or higher) and for the occurrence of neutropenia (grade 3 or higher) during the first cycle of chemotherapy were examined...

PURPOSE: Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a sexual dysfunction described as the inability to develop or maintain an erection of the penis adequate for sexual intercourse, and its prevalence increases with age. Seen as a common sexual disorder worldwide, organic causes are the underlying reason for 80 percent of ED cases, with the most characteristic pathology responsible for organic ED being atherosclerosis. This study investigates the diagnostic value of plasma PTX-3 levels in arterial ED...

The intravascular papillary endothelial hyperplasia (IPEH) or Masson's tumor is an unusual and rare benign disease.It is histologically characterized by papillary and anastomosing channel-like structures lined by proliferating e n dothelium. Radiologically, it is usually presented as a heterogenic solid mass with contrast enhancement, withareas resembling necrosis and thrombosis. These signs can easily be attributed to malignancy. The urogenital tractis extremely rarely affected with only 8 cases described in the kidneys and one of the penis...

Herein we report a case of Kimura's disease with unusual manifestations. A 46-year- old Chinese man presented with mass in scrotum which gradually increased in size for approximately 7 years. A computerized tomographic scan of abdomen revealed a soft-tissue density shadow in scrotum and enlargement of lymph nodes in groin and retroperitoneum. The scrotal mass was excised and the biopsy specimen revealed angiolymphoid hyperplasia with infiltration of eosinophils. In conclusion, clinical doctors should pay attention that the patient with eosinophilia and scrotal mass could be indicative for Kimura's disease...
