The aim of this study is to judge the effectiveness of the new treatment of varicoceles, introduced in 1987 by Tauber: the antegradal scrotal sclerotherapy of varicoceles. From february 1996 to april 1998, we have realised 150 antegrade embolisations of varicoceles. The study is lead on 75 patients with mean time follow-up of 12 months. Patient's mean age is 20 years. 85% of patients had a grade 3 left varicocele and 15% a grade 2 left varicocele. The criterium of success rests on the lack of veinous flow-back during clinical examination, which is than confirmed by doppler-ultrasound. Clinical success is obtained in 87% of the cases and the doppler control is normal in 80% of the cases. We have 9% of minor complications, and no major complication. The number of failures in our study is higher than in Tauber' study, but is the same as those described in the other procedures of treatment of varicocele. On the other hand the surgical procedure is simple and the morbidity is low. [less ▲]

Cryptorchidism affects approximately 1 in 150 boys. Non-palpable testes represent nearly 20% of all cases. If present, they are situated between the inferior renal pole and the external inguinal ring. Often at surgical exploration, however, a "nubbin" of testicular tissue is found at the end of blind ending spermatic vessels without demonstration of a recognizable testis; this finding is referred to as an absent testis. In other patients, no vascular or ductular (epididymis-vas deferens) or even testicular structure can be observed. This situation defines true testicular agenesis. Non-palpable testes have an increased risk of malignant transformation, infertility, associated inguinal hernia and congenital ductular abnormalities. Surgical treatment is often more complex and unsuccessful. Many imaging diagnostic methods to investigate patients with non-palpable testes (pneumoperitoneography, angiography, ultrasonography, CT scan and RMN) have been used so far but none of these has been uniformly accepted as the ideal investigative technique because they are unreliable and/or they involve a fair risk. Since Cortesi and associates first described in 1976 a case of abdominal testes identified by laparoscopy, this technique has gained increased acceptance by pediatric urologists and surgeons. Today, celioscopy plays a central role in the exploration of non-palpable cryptorchid testes. The authors try to establish an algorithm methodology for investigating non-palpable testes under the light of recently reported anatomical, pathological and surgical data. [less ▲]

DNA histograms were obtained by flow cytometry for 39 human prostate carcinomas (27 total prostatectomy specimens, 5 biopsies and 7 transuretral resections). The study was performed on formalin-fixed and paraffin-embedded material. In this report, ploidy index did not seem to be a good marker of prognosis as no significant variation in ploidy was found neither among the different stages nor among the different Gleason categories. Proliferative index of the tumors seemed to be a more sensitive parameter; a significant relation was observed between proliferative index and stage of the tumor. The authors discuss these results under the light of previously reported observations. [less ▲]

A review of 20 cases of conservative surgery for urothelial tumors of the upper tract is presented. The morbidity is limited; the recurrence rate is around 15% in the ipsilateral urinary tract with a mean follow up of 41 months. Conservative surgery does not seem to carry a higher fatal risk as compared to more radical surgery. It has indications in some cases which are defined. [less ▲]

The authors report their experience of 148 radical prostatectomies performed for adeno-carcinoma. They expose the reasons which have led them to adopt this kind of treatment and the reasons explaining a nearly exponential increase of the frequency of the operation during the last 5 years. They underline the importance of lymphadenectomy and the safety of frozen sections of the nodes. The surgical technique is briefly commented and the (low) morbidity of the operation is reviewed. They compare the results of RPV to those of external radiotherapy, watchful attitude or immediate hormonal treatment and they conclude in insisting on the benefit of the surgical approach as far as indications (which are defined) are strictly followed.

From a new case of fibroepithelial polyp in a 41 year old woman, we reviewed literature on this rare and benign pathology, for which differential diagnosis with malignant tumor is most often obtained surgically. We emphasize both diagnostic and therapeutic advantages of endoscopic approach of this lesion. [less ▲]
