BACKGROUND: Nephrogenic adenoma is an uncommon benign lesion that occurs at several sites in urinary tract, from the renal pelvis to urethra, with the highest frequency in urinary bladder. Nephrogenic adenoma displays a broad spectrum of architectural and cytological features. Hence, recognition of its characteristic histopathological features is needed to distinguish this lesion from its mimickers. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A retrospective series of 21 cases of nephrogenic adenoma in 18 patients, which were diagnosed in our department between 2010 and 2016, were analyzed...

BACKGROUND: Nephrogenic adenoma (NA) is a rare, benign disease of the urinary tract, usually as a response to chronic irritation or trauma. Its diagnosis, staging, and treatment are not well established. CASE REPORT: We report on 3 cases of nephrogenic adenoma of the urinary bladder treated in our hospital between February 2011 and December 2012 to assess our experience and clinical outcome updating and reviewing the literature concerning this issue. All patients had undergone previous open urosurgery...

Myofascial defects of lateral abdominal wall and lumbar region occur chiefly after lumbotomy--the most popular access in urosurgery. Meanwhile lumbotomy remains one of the most traumatic accesses through the lateral abdominal wall. Myofascial defects were diagnosed in 48,9% of operated patients with lumbotomy. Of them true postoperative hernias were found in 35,3%; neuropathic hernias - in 13,6%. Since 2002 the originally developed method of lateral abdominal wall reconstruction had been used for the treatment of such patients...

BACKGROUND: Bladder cancer is a common malignancy in Egypt. Human papillomavirus (HPV) could have a possible etiologic role in bladder carcinogenesis. We aimed to estimate the prevalence of HPV-16, -18, and -52 in Egyptian patients with bladder cancer or recurrent cystitis, and to study the correlation of type-specific HPV-immunoglobulin (Ig)G with polymerase chain reaction (PCR) results and different clinicopathologic parameters. METHODS: This study was conducted on 60 inpatients of the Urosurgery Department at the Theodor Bilharz Research Institute (TBRI), who were identified histopathologically and clinically as cancer bladder (group I, 20 patients), cystitis (group II, 24 patients), and cancer bladder with cystitis (group III, 16 patients), and a fourth group of 20 healthy control subjects (for serologic testing)...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the efficacy, safety, and tolerance of bladder preservation trimodality protocol combining maximal transurethral resection of bladder tumor (TURBT) with concomitant chemoradiation (CCRT) followed by adjuvant chemotherapy in patients with muscle invasive transitional cell carcinoma (TCC) of the bladder. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Between January 2004 and May 2006, 40 patients with invasive TCC (T2-T4a) presented to the Radiation Oncology and Urosurgery departments - Ain Shams University hospitals and were enrolled in this prospective phase II study...

A case control study was done at Ain Shams University Hospital. Eligibility criteria were put to select cases from the clinics of urosurgery department and a control group from the clinics of surgery departments. The study was conducted in the period form 1st of February till 1st of June 1992. Both cases and control groups were subjected to an interview questionnaire, clinical examination and laboratory investigation to estimate the serum levels of retinol and selenium. Serum retinol and selenium were significantly lower among cases than among control group (p < 0...

BACKGROUND: Nephrogenic adenoma (NA) is a rare disease of the urinary tract. We report our clinical experience with this disease in the urinary bladder and review the literature. METHODS: Between April 1994 and July 2004, 8 patients were diagnosed with NA of the urinary bladder: 3 men and 5 women, aged 23-77 years (mean 49.6). Multiple predisposing factors were analyzed. The mean follow-up time was 56 months. RESULTS: NA was not associated with transitional cell carcinoma in our series...

A Multivariate analysis was done in all patients who developed post operative ARF, during the period 1990-1995 to determine the etiological spectrum and to identify various variables affecting the outcome. Of 140 patients (110 operated at SGPGI and 30 operated outside) 116 underwent elective surgery. The different types of surgery leading to ARF were urosurgery (3.5%), open heart surgery (32.9%), gastrosurgery (16.4%), pancreatic surgery (9.3%), obstetrical surgery (3.6%) and others (2.8%). The incidence of ARF in SGPGI patients was highest in pancreatic surgery group (8...

There has never been a century in which treatment strategies in urology have changed as quickly. In parallel with the worldwide acknowledgement of extracorporeal lithotripsy as a German development, the surgical and endoscopic accomplishments of German urologists have also placed them in a leading position. In turn, this has led to an extended definition of endourology. This paper deals with endoscopic and percutaneous procedures and not with stone treatment. The author shows the extent to which other specialties have been influenced by this purely urological development and how it has stimulated the development of minimal invasive surgical procedures in other disciplines as well...
