- Micro RNA 200a contributes to the smooth muscle cells growth in aged-related erectile dysfunction via regulating Rho/ROCK pathwayby Lulu Lou on July 2, 2022
Aged-related erectile dysfunction (A-ED) is generally regarded as degeneration of penile erectile tissue due to age, male hormone deficiency and concomitant cardiovascular disease. Current pathological studies of A-ED are still limited. In this study, aged rats were divided into AE group (aged rats with ED) and YN group (young normal rats) for evaluating the roles of miRNA-200a and RhoA/ROCK signalling pathway in A-ED. Apo-morphine test, ICP measurement and pathological results were compared...
- Acute isolated orchalgia as the initial symptom in thoracic cord disorder: 2 case report and literature reviewby I-C Kao on July 2, 2022
CONCLUSIONS: In the literature, the responsible pathology of spinal orchalgia was exclusively found below T10 level, frequently delaying affirmative diagnosis. Therefore, a thorough evaluation of spinal cord above T10 level should be alerted for idiopathic orchalgia with a pre-existing history or risk of spinal cord disorder and a negative urological examination.
- Prostate Cancer Treatment with Pencil Beam Proton Therapy Using Rectal Spacers sans Endorectal Balloonsby Matthew Forsthoefel on July 1, 2022
CONCLUSION: Early clinical outcomes of patients treated with PBS-PBT using Monte Carlo-based planning, fiducial placement, and rectal spacers sans endorectal balloons demonstrate minimal treatment-related toxicity with good oncologic outcomes. Rectal spacer stabilization without the use of endorectal balloons is feasible for the use of PBS-PBT.
- Erectile dysfunction following hydrogel injection and hypofractionated radiotherapy for prostate cancer: Our experience in 56 casesby Pietro Pepe on July 1, 2022
CONCLUSIONS: The use of hydrogel injection and intraprostatic fiducials followed by HRT allowed to kept pretreatment sexual potency in 62.5% of the cases.
