Prospective cross-sectional evaluation of penile helicine circulation by power doppler during dynamic ultrasound in veno-occlusive erectile dysfunction
To evaluate the usefulness of Power Doppler to improve the diagnostic work up of veno-occlusive erectile dysfunction patients.
To report perioperative and postoperative outcomes in men who undergo salvage RASP (sRASP) following some other endoscopic outlet procedure for benign prostate enlargement (BPE) compared to those undergoing RASP for primary treatment (pRASP).
On May 30th of this year all of us lost one of our brightest lights and exemplary individuals. As a family man, caregiver, surgeon, educator, advisor and counselor, administrator, colleague and friend, Douglas (Doug) Canning was an example of what could be termed “a man without a vice”. As we at Penn sat around a table later that week at a meeting called to talk about our emotions and thoughts regarding this tragedy, numerous anecdotes were recounted which remind us of the positive influences he had on each of us in so many areas of life and practice.
We are very pleased that the authors of this letter carefully reviewed our study published a decade and half ago and pointed out the discrepancy that the values reported for the control group do not lie in the range expected. After this prolonged time, authors have retired (or cannot be found), the technician who collected the specimens has died, the labs have closed, and the original hard data cannot be found. It seems we likely reported the reference range in ng/dL and the test results for testosterone and progesterone in ng/ml.
Letter to the editor regarding the article "Adrenocortical hormone abnormalities in men with chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome"
We read with interest the article "Adrenocortical hormone abnormalities in men with chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome"1 published in February 2008 in the Urology journal, volume 71, issue 2. The article describes a study of men with chronic prostatitis / chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CP/CPPS). The authors of the study observed mineralocorticoid steroid abnormalities in CP/CPPS patients, suggesting 21-hydroxylase deficiency (21OHD) associated with non-classic congenital adrenal hyperplasia, a condition generally thought to be asymptomatic in men.
To evaluate how blood levels of prostate-specific antigen (PSA) relate to prostate volume of benign tissue, Gleason pattern 3 (GP3) and Gleason pattern 4 (GP4) cancer.
Persistent asymptomatic isolated microscopic hematuria in adolescents is not associated with an increased risk for early onset urinary tract cancer
To elucidate the association between adolescent microscopic hematuria and early onset urothelial carcinoma and renal cell carcinoma.
A 58-year-old patient who came to the Emergency Department due to intermittently edema in the lower limbs without fever, weight loss or hypertension. As only noteworthy personal history, she has presented recurrent urinary tract infections. On physical examination, the abdomen was soft, depressible and not painful, with hepatomegaly. Complementary tests showed only leukocytosis and elevated CRP.
