Tuğba Özdemir
OBJECTIVE: Epithelial to Mesenchymal Transition (EMT) is an important phenomenon that is recently been recognized to play roles on prostate cancer metastasis through both epigenetic and biochemical signaling pathways. Using tissue engineering tools, we recreated a metastatic tumor niche to study the role of mir200 (a small RNA proven to reverse EMT processes) on extracellular matrix (ECM) fiber diameter guided prostate cancer cell EMT. MATERIAL AND METHODS: LNCaP cells were cultured on fibrous scaffolds for 48 hours...

OBJECTIVE: In this study, we aimed to assess renal outcomes of delayed diagnosis of dilating primary vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) following recurrent febrile urinary tract infections (fUTIs) and its diagnostic imaging procedures. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The medical records of patients who underwent ultrasonography (US), non- acute dimercaptosuccinic acid (Tc-99mDMSA) scintigraphy and voiding cystourethrography (VCUG), and who were older than 2 years at the time of VUR diagnosis were retrospectively reviewed...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of the study was to compare the different surgical approaches of two centers on outcomes of live donor laparoscopic nephrectomy. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The first 98 patients of each centre who underwent laparoscopic donor nephrectomy (LDN) or hand-assisted laparoscopic donor nephrectomy (HALDN) were included in the study. The following data were used for analyses: donor age, weight, height, body mass index (BMI), transfusion requirement, operative time, ischemia time and postoperative complications...

OBJECTIVE: Penile injuries are not rare in children. Our aim is to establish their causes and to report our experience in the management of those accidents. MATERIAL AND METHODS: A retrospective study of all penile injuries presented from January 2009 to January 2017 was performed. Hemorrhage and excess of mucosa or skin remnants are the most frequent and benign injuries after circumcisions, so they were excluded from the study. RESULTS: Four groups were reported including the circumcision accident group, the traumatic accident group, the strangulation group and the electrocution group...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study is to determine the impact of a motivational therapy (MT) on the outcomes for individuals diagnosed with nocturnal enuresis (NE). MATERIAL AND METHODS: We enrolled 158 patients with NE referred to the Service of Pediatrics, Campus Bio-Medico University Hospital of Rome, from January 2013 to September 2017. Of these, 21 were excluded because they didn't meet the inclusion criteria. The study was carried out in compliance with the Helsinki Declaration...

OBJECTIVE: The ultra-mini percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) for treating low-volume renal nephrolithiasis is being used as an alternative modality to the conventional PCNL. However its use in the supine position has been scarcely reported. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Patients who underwent ultra-mini PCNL in the supine position within the time frame of January 2017 to July 2017 were studied. All these patients had this as their first-line treatment. The patients had calculus limited to either a single calyx or just extending to the pelvis and the stone size was less than 2 cm in its maximal dimension...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the utility of multiphase computed tomography (CT) and percutaneous renal mass biopsy (PRMB) in differentiating between papillary renal cell carcinoma (pRCC)-Type 1 and -Type 2, as emerging data have suggested differential enhancement patterns in different renal tumor histologies. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Retrospective analysis of 51 patients (23 pRCC-Type 1/28 pRCC-Type 2) who underwent multiphase CT followed by surgery from July 2011 to April 2016 was performed...

OBJECTIVE: Surgical site infection (SSI) is defined as infection at or near surgical incisions within 30 days of an operative procedure and classified either incisional superficial and deep or organ/space. The aim of the study is to report and compare the incidence and management of SSIs after robot-assisted laparoscopic radical prostatectomy (RALP) and retropubic radical prostatectomy (RRP). MATERIAL AND METHODS: Within the last 4 years, we identified 285 patients that underwent RRP, n=187 (66%) or RALP, n=98 (34%)...

OBJECTIVE: Cancer imposes higher burden on men. Sex differences in healthcare utilization may contribute to this problem. We compared healthcare utilization among adults with and without a history of cancer as measured by having at least one physician visit within the previous 12 months. MATERIAL AND METHODS: We analyzed data from 7,229 responders (weighted population size=211,722,892) enrolled in the 2007 Health Information and National Trends Survey (HINTS), a nationally representative sample of non-institutionalized adults in the United States...

REVIEW
Muhammet Fuat Özcan, Serkan Altınova, Ali Atan
The elderly population is increasing in Turkey and across the world. With the frequent use of imaging modalities, the detection rate of coincidental small renal mass has also increased. Since small renal masses are generally not malignant, most of them can be followed up by active surveillance. In the current study, we examined the treatment options that can be offered to elderly patients with small renal masses. The optimum treatment method for patients of advanced age presenting with renal masses should be determined based on the presence of comorbidities such as age, renal function, and tumor characteristics...

Tubular ectasia of rete testis (TERT) is a rarely seen benign condition of testis which can cause chronic orchalgia. TERT appears as an anechoic lesion in ultrasonography. However magnetic resonance imaging is a more sophisticated diagnostic tool. TERT is commonly associated with epididymal cysts. Generally a conservative treatment approach is preferred. In some cases surgery is required. In our case, 54-year-old male patient had bilateral TERT associated with bilateral multiple epididymal cysts. He had chronic testicular pain which did not respond to first- line conservative treatments...

OBJECTIVE: Voiding cystourethrography (VCUG) has been considered as the gold standard technique for the diagnosis of vesicoureteral reflux (VUR). But, it requires fluoroscopic guidance which expose children to radiation. Voiding urosonography (VUS) is technically analogous to VCUG and has the major advantage of zero radiation exposure. This study aims to determine the efficacy of contrast enhanced-VUS (ce-VUS) with respect to VCUG in diagnosing VUR. MATERIAL AND METHODS: This study involves 30 children over a period of 3 years...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of the current study was to find out the prevalence of asymptomatic bacteriuria, antimicrobial susceptibility pattern of the isolates and related risk factors among pregnant women. MATERIAL AND METHODS: A hospital-based cross-sectional study was carried out from February 2017 to May 2017 among asymptomatic pregnant mothers attending Dessie Referral Hospital, Northeast Ethiopia. About 10-15 mL of freshly voided midstream urine samples were collected from each study participants, and analyzed at Dessie regional research microbiology laboratory with conventional antibiotic susceptibility, and biochemical tests...
