Stress urinary incontinence represents an important, often unknown and, yet, certainly most unpleasant pathology. Over years, several different surgical techniques have been proposed and reported to have variable success. TVT, a simple and reproducible technique, aims at stabilizing mid-urethra, and not bladder-neck. Our own clinical experience amounts to 139 cases. All these patients were evaluated by clinical examination and, subjectively, by a questionnaire. 89.2% were cured and 6.5% improved. The most frequent complication was bladder perforation (6.5%), but it had no incidence on the final results. Morbidity was low. This revolutionary technique is very promising and our own results are similar to those reported by others. [less ▲]

The aim of this study was to compare the efficacy of total intermittent androgen deprivation (IAD) versus total continuous androgen deprivation (CAD) for treating patients with advanced prostate cancer in a phase III randomized trial. A total of 68 evaluable patients with hormone-naive advanced or relapsing prostate cancer were randomized to receive combined androgen blockade according to a continuous (n = 33) or intermittent (n = 35) regimen. Therapeutic monitoring was assessed by use of serum prostate-specific antigen (PSA) measurements. Patients in the CAD and IAD groups were equally stratified for age, biopsy Gleason score, and baseline serum PSA levels. The outcome variable was time to androgen-independence of the tumor, which was defined as increasing serum PSA levels despite androgen blockade. Mean follow-up was 30.8 months. The 35 IAD-treated patients completed 91 cycles, and 19 of them (54.3%) completed > or = 3 cycles. Median cycle length and percentage of time off therapy were 9.0 months and 59.5, respectively. The estimated 3-year progression rate was significantly lower in the IAD group (7.0% +/- 4.8%) than in the CAD group (38.9% +/- 11.2%, P = 0.0052). Our data suggest that IAD treatment may maintain the androgen-dependent state of advanced human prostate cancer, as assessed by PSA measurements, at least as long as CAD treatment. Further studies with longer follow-up times and larger patient cohorts are needed to determine the comparative impacts of CAD and IAD on survival. [less ▲]

PURPOSE: We define guidelines for the exploration and treatment of adult mullerian duct cysts. MATERIALS AND METHODS: From January 1988 through September 1999 a diagnosis of enlarged prostatic utricle was made in 65 adults based on transrectal ultrasound findings. Echographic criteria to define simple versus complicated cysts were detailed. We reviewed the clinical presentation, diagnostic modalities, indications for invasive procedures and postoperative outcome. RESULTS: The usual clinical presentations were hematospermia in 40% of cases, other ejaculatory disturbances in 20%, recurrent testicular or pelviperineal pain in 33%, lower urinary tract irritation symptoms in 25%, lower urinary tract infection in 18.5%, male infertility in 12% and incidental finding in 18.5%. Cyst dimensions did not influence the indication for invasive procedures, which were performed in only 27 of the 65 patients (41.5%) to treat disabling symptoms in 28% and obstructive infertility in 5%, and investigate complicated cysts on transrectal ultrasound in 6%. These procedures included transperineal or transrectal puncture in 9 patients, simple endoscopic section of the utricle meatus in 12 and large marsupialisation in 6. Complete and sustained cure was noted in half of the patients treated with cyst puncture only, although echographic relapse was the rule. Endoscopic procedures definitely improved or cured 82% of the patients at a mean followup of 51 months, during which neither early nor late complications were noted. CONCLUSIONS: Since almost 60% of adults diagnosed with a mullerian duct cyst did not experience any cyst related symptoms or ejaculatory-fertility impairment, we recommend that investigation and/or treatment should only be done in symptomatic or infertile patients.

With Evidence-Based Medicine, shared decision making is attracting considerable interest as a means by which patient preferences can be incorporated into clinical decisions. Patients cannot express informed preferences unless they are given sufficient and appropriate information, including a detailed explanation concerning their condition, the different therapeutic options and the likely outcomes with and without treatment. A patient education leaflet is a potentially powerful tool for communicating information to patients, who will be able to participate in the process of decision making. The present article is a review of available guides for the writing of patient information materials. It also includes criteria for evaluating their quality. [less ▲]

Pancreas transplantation significantly improves the quality of life as well as the survival of the diabetic patient. It is also associated with stabilization and reversal of secondary diabetic complications. Improvements in organ preservation, surgical techniques and immunosuppression have achieved one-year graft survival of more than 90% for combined kidney-pancreas transplant and 80% for isolated pancreas transplantation. Recipient evaluation must weigh the benefits of the procedure with the risk associated with surgery and chronic immunosuppression. Combined kidney-pancreas transplantation appears today as the best treatment for the diabetic patient with end stage renal disease. Isolated pancreas transplantation is reserved to non-uremic patients with severe diabetic complications or with brittle glycaemic control and severe impairment of quality of life. [less ▲]

It is now widely established that systematic intraoperative location and diligent dissection of the recurrent inferior laryngeal nerve during thyroidectomy are the keystones to assure its anatomic and functional preservation. The possibility of abnormal routes, like a non-recurrent cervical course of the inferior laryngeal nerve is an additional major argument for its systematic identification to avoid surgical damage. In 2517 cervicotomies performed between 1992 and 1997 for at least right thyroid lobe excision or parathyroid glands exploration, 20 cases of non recurrent laryngeal nerve were identified (0.79%). The embryological nature of such a nervous anatomical variation results originally from a vascular disorder, named arteria lusoria in which the fourth right aortic arch is abnormally absorbed, being therefore unable to drag the right recurrent laryngeal nerve down when the heart descends and the neck elongates during embryonic development. The surgeon must be aware of the possibility of a non recurrent laryngeal nerve, which arises directly from the cervical vagus and therefore represents a severe potential pitfall during thyroidectomy. Given the absence of reliable clinical symptoms and signs or investigations indicating preoperatively the possibility of a non recurrent nerve, guidelines are given to prevent intraoperatively this major surgical risk.

Prostatic cancer (PC) became the first diagnosed cancer in western men and is the second leading cause of cancer death in men. Wide utilisation of serum PSA and free PSA measurements, identifies patients requiring transrectalultrasonography (TRUS) and TRUS guided biopsies. Most prostatic cancers diagnosed today are locally limited and may be treated by radical surgery or radiotherapy. In case of disseminated disease, hormonal manipulations remain the treatment of choice. In that field, many new drugs have been designed to allow medical castration with less complications, especially regarding sexual potency. [less ▲]

Transplanting a kidney graft harvested from a live donor has been proposed and used to shorten the waiting time of kidney transplant candidates and to increase the graft pool. Live donor renal transplants have demonstrated better results in term of graft survival rates, compared to renal transplants harvested from brain dead donor. Recently, laparoscopic live donor nephrectomy has been introduced to reduce the live procurement morbidity. This lower morbidity may result in increased acceptance of the donor operation. We initiated a program of laparoscopic live donor nephrectomy in January 1997 and up until June 1998, three cases were successfully performed in our department. The purpose of this paper was to report the first case of this program and its first year of follow-up. [less ▲]

Physical, psychological and economical consequences of urinary incontinence of the elderly woman are underestimated. It often results in depression, social isolation and early institutionalisation. It is often the key factor that determines the decision of institutionalisation, which represent the most important part of the total cost of urinary incontinence. This problem is too often neglected and deserves considerable attention. [less ▲]
