An analysis of the efficacy, safety, and cost-effectiveness of fulguration under local anesthesia for small-sized recurrent masses: a compar...
We reviewed the records of 42 patients who underwent a fulguration procedure for a recurrent Ta small bladder mass after excluding those with ≥1-cm sized masses at recurrence and those with masses at more than three sites. The included fulguration patients were matched with 42 TURB patients who pres...
Safety and feasibility of laparoscopic radical cystectomy for the treatment of bladder cancer.
Radical cystectomy is the mainstay of the management of muscle invasive bladder cancer. Numerous centers have adopted a minimally invasive approach to replace the standard open procedure. The objective of the study was to review published literature comparing laparoscopic radical cystectomy (LRC) an...
The impact of body mass index on perioperative outcomes in robot-assisted laparoscopic partial nephrectomy.
Increasing BMI was not associated with a significant increase in perioperative complications, WIT, or change in GFR in patients undergoing RPN at a high-volume tertiary medical center. Collecting system invasion or tumor size ≥4 cm and BMI were independently associated with higher EBL, LOS, and OT,...
Editorial comment for Lisky et al.
An updated report on complications following robotic prostatectomy: results of an unbiased prospective database.
As a surgeon progresses through the learning curve, there is a stable overall complication rate with a drop in major complications after the first 100 cases....
Surgical cyst decortication in autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease.
Despite a potential role in blood pressure management in the setting of ADPKD, surgical cyst decortication has not been definitively shown to alleviate hypertension in this clinical setting. Renal function does not appear to improve following this surgery. Patients with compromised baseline renal fu...
Endoscopic inguinofemoral lymphadenectomy--extended follow-up.
We are demonstrating our extended experience with a modified endoscopic approach (E-IFLA) for groin lymphadenectomy. Patients with nonpalpable as well as those with palpable nodes who had IFLA were identified. O-IFLA comprised both superficial and deep inguinal lymph node dissection. E-IFLA was perf...
Supracostal tubeless percutaneous nephrolithotomy: a retrospective cohort study.
To evaluate the safety of tubeless percutaneous nephrolithotomy in patients undergoing supracostal percutaneous renal access. Patients and Between October 1999 and October 2010, 302 patients underwent percutaneous nephrolithotomy via a supracostal access tract. Two hundred forty-eight (82.1%) patien...
Effect of the phosphodiesterase-5 inhibitor zaprinast on ischemia-reperfusion injury in rats.
We evaluated the effect of pretreatment with the PDE-5 inhibitor zaprinast on warm renal ischemia in a rat model. Female Sprague-Dawley rats underwent concomitant right nephrectomy and left renal hilar occlusion for 30 minutes. Twelve animals were equally divided into three groups: Group 1 received...
