Diagnostic Application of Flexible Cystoscope in Pelvic Fracture Urethral Distraction Defects
Seyed Jalil Hosseini,Ali Kaviani,Mohammad Jabbari,Mojtaba Mohammad Hosseini
Urology Journal , 2006,
Abstract: Introduction: The aim of this study was to evaluate the diagnostic value of antegrade flexible cystoscopy in pelvic fracture urethral distraction defects (PFUDD). Materials and Methods: Between 1999 and 2004, a total of 111 patients with PFUDD were evaluated by antegrade flexible cystoscopy. The flexible cystoscope was introduced into the posterior urethra and the area was evaluated for any probable fistula, false passages, or displacement of the posterior urethra. For preventing misalignment, flexible cystoscope was also used during the urethroplasty to open the posterior urethra at its exact distal point. Results: Posterior urethra ended distal to the external sphincter in 16 patients (14.4%). Five (4.5%) and 9 (8.1%) patients had severe displacement of the posterior end of the urethra and bladder neck false passage, respectively. Prostatic urethrorectal fistula was detected in 1 patient. Another 1 patient had bladder rhabdomyoma. Conclusion: Flexible cystoscopy is a valuable procedure in the evaluation of the bladder, the bladder neck, and the posterior urethra in patients with urethral distraction defects and complements voiding cystography before the surgery. It is also helpful for showing the exact distal point of the proximal urethra during urethroplasty in cases with displaced posterior urethra.

Seyed Jalil Hosseini,Ali Kaviani,Ali Reza Vazirnia
Urology Journal , 2008,
Abstract: Introduction: We studied the safety and efficacy of flexible cystoscopy-guided internal urethrotomy in the management of obliterative urethral strictures. Materials and Methods: Forty-three flexible cystoscopy-guided internal urethrotomies were performed between 1999 and 2005. The indication for the procedure was nearly blinded bulbar or membranous urethral strictures not longer than 1 cm that would not allow passage of guide wire. Candidates were those who refused or were unable to undergo urtheroplasty. By monitoring any impression of the urethrotome on the monitor through the flexible cystoscope, we were able to do under-vision urethrotomy. All of the patients were started clean intermittent catheterization afterwards which was tapered over the following 6 months. Follow-up continued for 24 months after the last internal urethrotomy. Results: Seventeen patients were younger than 65 years with a history of failed posterior urethroplasty, and 26 were older than 65 with poor cardiopulmonary conditions who had bulbar urethral stricture following straddle or iatrogenic injuries. Urethral stricture stabilized in 16 patients (37.2%) with a single session of urethrotomy and in 17 (39.5%) with 2 urethrotomies. Overall, urethral stricture stabilized in 76.7% of patients with 1 or 2 internal urethrotomies within 24 months of follow-up. No severe complication was reported. Conclusion: Flexible cystoscopy-guided internal urethrotomy is a simple, safe, and under-vision procedure in obliterative urethral strictures shorter than 1 cm. It can be an ideal option for patients who do not accept posterior urethroplasty or are in a poor cardiopulmonary condition that precludes general anesthesia.

Seyed Jalil Hosseini,Mohammadreza Rahmani,Mohammadreza Razzaghi,Mohammadreza Barghi
Urology Journal , 2006,
Abstract: Introduction: Fournier gangrene is a rare, rapidly progressive, necrotizing fasciitis of the external genitalia, the perineum, or the abdominal wall that is associated with high morbidity and mortality. In this series, we describe 12 patients with Fournier gangrene who had presented to our medical center. Materials and Methods: Twelve men had been diagnosed with Fournier gangrene in Shohada-e- Tajrish hospital between March 2002 and September 2005. Their medical records were reviewed and the Fournier Gangrene Severity Index scores before and after the treatment were determined. Results: Fifty percent of the patients were diabetic and their mean age was 58.2 ± 17.8 years. The mean delay between the onset of the disease and the admission was 4.9 days and the mortality rate was 16.6%. The median Fournier Gangrene Severity Index scores before the admission and at the time of discharge were 4.5 (range, 0 to 11) and 0 (range, 0 to 9), respectively (P = .005). One of the patients who died had the scores of 11 and 9, respectively. Split-thickness skin graft was performed for 5 patients (41.7%). Conclusion: In Fournier gangrene, a rapid diagnosis and emergent surgical intervention is crucial. The Fournier Gangrene Severity Index seems to be an excellent tool for outcome prediction.

Mahyar Ghafoori,Peyman Varedi,Seyed Jalil Hosseini,Mojgan Asgari
Urology Journal , 2009,
Abstract: Introduction: The objective of this study was to evaluate the value of serum prostate-specific antigen (PSA) and prostate-specific antigen density (PSAD) in the diagnosis of prostate cancer. Materials and Methods: A total of 330 consecutive patients suspected of having prostate cancer due to either abnormal digital rectal examination or elevated serum PSA levels underwent transrectal ultrasonography-guided sextant biopsy of the prostate. The PSA and PSAD values were assessed based on the biopsy results. Results: One hundred and twenty-one patients (36.7%) had prostate cancer. In this group, the mean PSA was 31.60 ± 30.85 ng/mL (range, 1.9 ng/mL to 166.0 ng/mL) and the mean PSAD was 0.83 ± 1.01 (range, 0.04 ng/mL/cm3 to 6.38 ng/mL/cm3). In those without prostate cancer the mean PSA and PSAD levels were 13.80 ± 18.72 ng/mL (range, 0.4 ng/mL to 130.0 ng/mL; P < .001) and 0.24 ± 0.32 (range of 0.01 ng/mL/cm3 to 2.29 ng/mL/cm3; P < .001). The receiver operating characteristic curve analysis revealed that the discriminating power of serum PSA for detecting prostate cancer, as estimated by the area under the curve, was 0.74 while that for PSAD was 0.81 (P < .001). For the PSA range of 3.5 ng/mL to 41 ng/mL (gray zone) the areas under the curve was 0.68 for PSA, while it was 0.78 for PSAD (P < .001). Conclusion: The use of PSAD instead of PSA in the diagnosis of prostatic cancer improves the diagnostic accuracy.

Urology Journal , 2013,
Abstract: PURPOSE:To determine the optimal number of biopsies in patients with non-obstructive azoospermia (NOA) who undergo testicular sperm extraction (TESE), and assess the impact of testicular histology on outcome.MATERIALS AND METHODS: Seven hundred and forty-one patients with NOA who underwent TESE in our institution were enrolled in the study. Testicular sperm extraction was performed applying an open surgical technique on the larger testis. The number of biopsies varied according to the presence or absence of spermatozoa. No further biopsies were obtained once spermatozoa were detected. If no spermatozoa were seen, the procedure was continued to a maximum number of 5 biopsies, including a single biopsy of the contralateral testis. RESULTS: Spermatozoa were obtained in 330 (44.5%) patients after a single biopsy. The success rate increased to 381 (51.4%), 416 (56.1%), 433 (58.4%), and 441 (59.5%) after the second, third, fourth, and contralateral sampling, respectively. Multiple sampling increased the success rate; however, success rate did not increase considerably after the third sampling. Performing contralateral testicular biopsy was advantageous in patients with uniform or mixed pattern hypospermatogenesis.CONCLUSION:We recommend performing at least 3 biopsies in patients with NOA who undergo TESE. Further biopsies may also be advantageous when the NOA is a consequence of either uniform or mixed pattern hypospermatogenesis.

Seyed Jalil Hosseini,Alireza Rezaei,Mojtaba Mohammadhosseini,Iraj Rezaei
Urology Journal , 2009,
Abstract: Introduction: Selection of an acceptable method for the treatment of posterior urethral disruption defects would be highly desirable. We determined the efficacy and success rate of some techniques including supracrural rerouting for removing of these defects among our patients. Materials and Methods: Records of 200 consecutive men treated with anastomotic urethroplasty for traumatic posterior urethral strictures were reviewed at our teaching hospital. Prior treatment, surgical approach, and ancillary techniques required during reconstruction were evaluated. Results: Success rate due to posterior urethral reconstruction was achieved in 78.0% of cases. Supracrural urethral rerouting was performed in 11 patients (5.5%), of whom 7 sustained recurrent stricture requiring intervention. The highest success rate of defect resolving was reported by urethral mobilization (92.4%). Conclusion: Supracrural rerouting is not an acceptable technique and can result in postoperative complications such as recurrent stricture in most of the patients with posterior urethral disruption defects.

Journal of Lasers in Medical Sciences , 2011,
Abstract: Hairball in a urethral diverticulum has rarely been reported. These hairballs are usually formed in the diverticulum coated with a hair bearing epithelium and can lead to urinary obstruction or infection. Using laser is a safe way to ablate such stones.
Clinical Outcome and Cost in Patients with Off-pump vs. On-Pump Coronary Artery Bypass Surgery
Seyed Khalil Forouzannia,Mohammad Hassan Abdollahi,Seyed Jalil Mirhosseini,Habibollah Hosseini
Acta Medica Iranica , 2011,
Abstract: "nGeneral concept and major emphasis on off-pump coronary artery bypass surgery (OPCAB) is maintaining quality of care and patient safety while reducing cost and resource utilization. OPCAB probably avoids the potential complications of cardiopulmonary bypass. However its acceptance depends on clinical and economic outcome. The aim of this study is to compare clinical and economic outcome of off-pump and on pump coronary artery bypass surgery. This is a report of an analytic cross-sectional study on 304 patients underwent coronary artery bypass surgery that were randomized into conventional on pump and off-pump groups. Variables and costs were obtained for each group and these data were analyzed using parametric methods. There was no difference between the two groups with respect to perioperative and intraoperative patient's variables. OPCAB reduced the need for postoperative transfusion requirement (P<0.05) which was statistically significant and showed a trend towards reduction of morbidity although didn't reach statistical significance (P>0.05). There were no statistically significant differences in surgical re exploration and length of stay between the two groups. The mean cost for an on pump surgery was 8312000 ± 2859 Rials per patient that was significantly higher than an off-pump surgery. Based on the findings of this study, clinical outcome has no statistically significant difference between on pump and off-pump CABG but the costs are significantly higher in the on pump group.

Seyed Khalil Forouzan nia,Seyed Jalil Mir Hosseini,Mohammad reza Haji esmaeili,Mohammad hassan Abdollahi
Journal of Mazandaran University of Medical Sciences , 2009,
Abstract: (Received 22 February, 2009 ; Accepted 17 June, 2009)AbstractTracheo-innominate artery fistula (TIF) is a rare, life threatening and catastrophic complication, which may occur 7 to 14 days after surgery. The Incidence Rate of TIF is 0.1-1% and survival rate of patient is 14.3%. Herein, we describe TIF in a patient 50 days post tracheotomy, based on our research, it appears that our case is the first finding with the latest onset of TIF after tracheotomy, which now has been improved by early diagnosis and surgical treatment.J Mazand Univ Med Sci 2009; 19(70): 81-84 (Persian)
