“WATCH” SHAPED BUCCAL MUCOSA GRAFT FOR SIMULTANEOUS CORRECTION OF SEVERE CHORDEE AND URETHROPLASTY AS A ONE-STAGE REPAIR OF SCROTAL HYPOSPADIAS
Scrotal hypospadias still presents a challenge for reconstructive urologists. We present a novel and one-stage technique of using a specially shaped buccal mucosa graft for simultaneous ventral tunica grafting and urethroplasty for severe hypospadias repair.
To describe the gonadal features of patients with 45,X/46,XY mosaicism, and to evaluate the prevalence of gonadal tumor in different phenotypes.
3D model facilitated zero-ischaemia laparoscopic nephron sparing resection in nephroblastomatosis following the addition of cis-retinoic acid
There are limited reports of laparoscopic nephron sparing surgery (LNSS) in children and none where a 3D model facilitated oncological resection. There are also limited reports discussing the use of cis-retinoic acid in bilateral diffuse hyperplastic peri-lobar nephrogenic rests(DHPLNR).We report the first case of a 3D model facilitated zero-ischaemia LNSS in children and the first following treatment with cis-retinoic acid.The patient was a 3-year-old girl with bilateral DHPLNR who had recurrent disease following standard therapy.
Gretzer et al.1 describe a patient with symptomatic benign prostatic enlargement (BPE) who underwent prostatic urethral lift (PUL) and subsequently developed ecchymosis with computed tomography (CT) showing bilateral pelvic hematomas. This case is the first published incident of pelvic hematoma after PUL and was presumably self-limiting and required no further intervention.
Impact of CYP2D6 polymorphisms on tamoxifen treatment in patients with retroperitoneal fibrosis: A first step towards tailored therapy?
To investigate the influence of CYP2D6 polymorphisms on outcomes and health-related quality of life (HRQoL) of patients with retroperitoneal fibrosis (RPF) receiving tamoxifen (TMX). TMX is an effective alternative to corticosteroids for patients with RPF. Conversion of tamoxifen to more potent endoxifen is dependent on enzyme activity of CYP2D6.
