- Microsurgical resection of trigone ventricular meningiomas using the parieto-occipital approach: a retrospective analysis of 47 cases and literature review. [Journal Article]J Neurosurg Sci 2019JN
- CONCLUSIONS: PTBE may be a risk factor for preoperative neurological symptoms. Furthermore, the parieto-occipital approach is a safe and effective surgical approach in resecting trigone ventricular meningioma.
- Novel trigone-based sizing method for mitral ring annuloplasty. [Journal Article]Ann Thorac Surg 2019AT
- CONCLUSIONS: Our trigone-based sizing method achieved satisfactory control of MR, while avoiding functional mitral stenosis and systolic anterior motion.
- Early Oncological and Functional Outcomes of Prostate Capsule Sparing Cystectomy Compared with Standard Radical Cystectomy. [Journal Article]Curr Urol 2019; 13(1):37-45CU
- CONCLUSIONS: Prostate capsule sparing cystectomy is a good option in selected cases with better continence and potency and without compromising oncological outcomes after 2 years.
- Towards safe and efficient preoperative planning of transcatheter mitral valve interventions. [Journal Article]Morphologie 2019M
- CONCLUSIONS: The efficiency and accuracy of the proposed method give the confidence to move towards implementation of this technology in clinical practice. We propose a possible implementation of this method in clinical practice, which, in our opinion, will facilitate safe and efficient preoperative planning of transcatheter mitral valve interventions.
- RADIOFREQUENCY-BASED BLADDER DENERVATION DEVICE. [Journal Article]Urology 2019U
- CONCLUSIONS: In the porcine model, modulated RFA delivered by our novel device reduced nerve density in the bladder neck and trigone by 88.6% and 88.9% at 12 weeks without evidence of lasting epithelial injury.
- A new treatment for lingual nerve injury: an anatomical feasibility study for using a buccal nerve pedicle graft. [Journal Article]Surg Radiol Anat 2019SR
- CONCLUSIONS: Such a technique might be used for the patients with LN injury and who have lost sensation of the tongue.
- Improvement in early urinary continence recovery after robotic-assisted radical prostatectomy based on postoperative pelvic anatomic features: a retrospective review. [Journal Article]BMC Urol 2019; 19(1):87BU
- CONCLUSIONS: Postoperative membranous urethral length and bladder neck width were significantly associated with early urinary continence recovery after robotic-assisted radical prostatectomy. It is highly recommended that surgeons focus on preserving the membranous urethral length and increasing the bladder neck width on the trigone side during surgery to achieve optimal continence outcomes after robotic-assisted radical prostatectomy.
- Detection of Recurrence in Retromolar Trigone using "Puffed Cheek" F-18 FDG PET-CT Scan. [Journal Article]J Pak Med Assoc 2019; 69(9):1403JP
- Fluorine-18 Fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography computed tomography (18FDG PET-CT) is routinely used for post treatment monitoring of oral cavity cancers. In addition to physiological uptake of 18FDG, apposition of anatomical structures poses a big challenge in accurate localization of pathology in oral cavity that is further complicated by surgery and/or radiotherapy related distorti…
Fluorine-18 Fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography computed tomography (18FDG PET-CT) is routinely used for post treatment monitoring of oral cavity cancers. In addition to physiological uptake of 18FDG, apposition of anatomical structures poses a big challenge in accurate localization of pathology in oral cavity that is further complicated by surgery and/or radiotherapy related distortion. Case of recurrent Squamous Cell Carcinoma (SCC) of tongue is being presentedin a patient who underwent 18FDG PET-CT for post treatment monitoring. Simple 'Puffed Cheek' maneuver helped in accurately localizing tumour recurrence site within the retro-molar trigone.
- Improving the diagnosis of high grade and stage bladder cancer by detecting increased urinary calprotectin expression in tumor tissue and tumor-associated inflammatory response. [Journal Article]Investig Clin Urol 2019; 60(5):343-350IC
- CONCLUSIONS: Urinary calprotectin may be a valuable parameter in the diagnosis of primary bladder cancer with high sensitivity and specificity. Furthermore, it may be useful in the prediction of high grade and stage disease. However, more investigations are needed.

- Contractile elements and their sympathetic regulations in the pig urinary bladder: a species and regional comparative study. [Journal Article]Cell Tissue Res 2019CT
- Contractile behaviour of the urinary bladder and its sympathetic inhibition during storage phases are not well understood. Here, we explore muscularis mucosae (MM) as a predominant mucosal contractile element and the capability of sympathetic nerves to relax detrusor smooth muscle (DSM) or MM. Distribution of α-smooth muscle actin (α-SMA)-immunoreactive cells was compared in pig, human, guinea pi…
Contractile behaviour of the urinary bladder and its sympathetic inhibition during storage phases are not well understood. Here, we explore muscularis mucosae (MM) as a predominant mucosal contractile element and the capability of sympathetic nerves to relax detrusor smooth muscle (DSM) or MM. Distribution of α-smooth muscle actin (α-SMA)-immunoreactive cells was compared in pig, human, guinea pig, rat and mouse bladders by immunohistochemistry, while contractility of the bladder mucosa was compared in these species by isometric tension recordings. In pig, human and guinea pig bladders, DSM and MM located in the lamina propria expressed α-SMA immunoreactivity, while both rat and mouse bladders lacked a MM. Consistent with this presence or absence of MM, bladder mucosa of pig, human and guinea pig but not rat and mouse developed spontaneous phasic contractions (SPCs). Distribution of tyrosine hydroxylase (TH)-immunoreactive sympathetic nerve fibres was compared in pig DSM, MM, trigone and urethra, as were their sympathetic nerve-evoked contractile/relaxing responses examined. In pig DSM or MM, where TH-immunoreactive sympathetic fibres exclusively projected to the vasculature, sympathetic relaxations were difficult to demonstrate. In contrast, sympathetic contractions were invariably evoked in pig trigone and urethra where the smooth muscle cells receive TH-immunoreactive sympathetic innervations. Thus, SPCs of bladder mucosa appear to predominantly arise from the MM displaying species differences. Despite the currently accepted concept of sympathetic nerve-mediated DSM relaxation during the storage phase, it is unlikely that neurally released noradrenaline acts on β-adrenoceptors to relax either DSM or MM due to the anatomical lack of sympathetic innervation.
