    Title Treatment of Post-prostatectomy Incontinence with Male Slings in Patients with Impaired Detrusor Contractility on Urodynamics And/or Who Perform Valsalva Voiding.
    Date November 2011
    Journal The Journal of Urology
    Excerpt

    Male slings have emerged as a popular and efficacious treatment for men with post-prostatectomy stress urinary incontinence. Traditionally slings have been used with caution or avoided in men with impaired detrusor contractility or Valsalva voiding because of concern that patients will not be able to overcome the fixed resistance of a sling during micturition. We propose that men with post-prostatectomy urinary incontinence who have impaired contractility and/or void with abdominal straining for urodynamics can be safely treated with slings.

    Title Defining Pathological Variables to Predict Biochemical Failure in Patients with Positive Surgical Margins at Radical Prostatectomy: Implications for Adjuvant Radiotherapy.
    Date June 2010
    Journal Bju International
    Excerpt

    To evaluate the utility of estimated tumour volume, number of positive surgical margins (PSMs), and margin location for predicting biochemical failure in patients with PSM, in an attempt to better risk-stratify the heterogeneous group of patients at high risk of biochemical failure after radical prostatectomy (RP) for prostate cancer.

    Title Does Race Affect Postoperative Outcomes in Patients with Low-risk Prostate Cancer Who Undergo Radical Prostatectomy?
    Date April 2009
    Journal Urology
    Excerpt

    To assess the magnitude of racial disparities in prostate cancer outcomes following radical prostatectomy for low-risk prostate cancer.

    Title A Case of Synchronous Bilateral Testicular Seminoma.
    Date August 2008
    Journal Nature Clinical Practice. Urology
    Excerpt

    BACKGROUND: A previously healthy 51-year-old man with two children sustained a minor testicular trauma and subsequently sought medical care for persistent discomfort. INVESTIGATIONS: Physical examination, scrotal ultrasonography, Doppler ultrasound evaluation of testicular blood flow, scrotal MRI, measurement of serum tumor markers and testosterone levels, CT of the chest, abdomen and pelvis, intraoperative frozen section analysis and final pathologic analysis. DIAGNOSIS: Bilateral testicular seminoma (clinical stage I). MANAGEMENT: The patient initially underwent radical left orchiectomy with intraoperative frozen section analysis, which returned equivocal results. Final pathologic analysis revealed a 2.5 cm left testicular seminoma without vascular invasion. After careful discussion, he ultimately underwent radical right orchiectomy; pathologic analysis revealed a 2.7 cm right seminoma with vascular invasion. Testosterone replacement therapy was initiated. After further discussion, the patient elected to undergo adjuvant abdominal radiotherapy to a total of 25 Gy. The patient showed no evidence of disease over a post-treatment follow-up period of 24 months.
