A transrectal ultrasound-guided (TRUS) prostate biopsy is a common diagnostic procedure which carries an expected risk of iatrogenic infections. These range from simple urinary tract infections to rar...
To prospectively examine the changes in microbiota within the urinary tract after transrectal prostate biopsy.
Prostate Cancer Risk Assessment in Biopsy-naïve Patients: The Rotterdam Prostate Cancer Risk Calculator in Multiparametric Magnetic Resonance Imaging-Transrectal Ultrasound (TRUS) Fusion Biopsy and Systematic TRUS Biopsy.
The value of multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging (mpMRI) and targeted biopsy (TBx) remains controversial for biopsy-naïve men when compared to transrectal ultrasound (TRUS)-guided systematic b...
To review the evidence addressing current controversies around prostate biopsy. Specific questions explored were (1) mpMRI targeted (TgBx) alone versus combined with systematic (SBx) biopsy; (2) cogni...
Standardized Magnetic Resonance Imaging Reporting Using the Prostate Cancer Radiological Estimation of Change in Sequential Evaluation Criteria and Magnetic Resonance Imaging/Transrectal Ultrasound Fusion with Transperineal Saturation Biopsy to Select Men on Active Surveillance.
Contemporary selection criteria for men with prostate cancer (PC) suitable for active surveillance (AS) are unsatisfactory, leading to high disqualification rates based on tumor misclassification. Con...
This pilot clinical trial studies transrectal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)-guided biopsy to see how well it works in identifying cancer in patients with suspected prostate cancer who a...
Primary purpose: Complications and rehospitalizations after transperineal prostate biopsy MRI-guided are reduced than transrectal prostate biopsies. Secondary purposes: - ...
This prospective study of comparing between Transrectal and transperineal prostate MRI targeted biopsy to provide evidence for clinicians to select the appropriate biopsy approach under di...
Prostate cancer is the most frequent cancer in men. Today serum prostate specific antigen (PSA) level and digital rectal examination (DRE) are routinely used for screening of prostate canc...
Retrospective reports from literature have shown a lower rate of infections for transperineal versus transrectal approach for prostate biopsies in the setting of prostate cancer suspicion....
A sampling methodology using small sample sizes when conducting surveys in small geographical or population-based areas or lots.
Sampling of blood levels of the adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) by withdrawal of blood from the inferior petrosal sinus. The inferior petrosal sinus arises from the cavernous sinus and runs to the internal jugular vein. Sampling of blood at this level is a valuable tool in the differential diagnosis of Cushing disease, Cushing syndrome, and other adrenocortical diseases.
A method for diagnosis of fetal diseases by sampling the cells of the placental chorionic villi for DNA analysis, presence of bacteria, concentration of metabolites, etc. The advantage over amniocentesis is that the procedure can be carried out in the first trimester.
Conducting a biopsy procedure with the aid of a MEDICAL IMAGING modality.
A perilipin protein characterized by an extensive 11-mer repeat region, which forms five adjacent alpha-helices. It is expressed primarily in WHITE ADIPOSE TISSUE and differentiating ADIPOCYTES, as well as skeletal muscle and heart. It is soluble in the cytoplasm but re-localizes to the surface of LIPID DROPLETS under high lipid conditions.
Prostate cancer (cancer de prostata) Prostate cancer (cancer de prostata) is a form of cancer that develops in the prostate, a gland in the male reproductive system. Most prostate cancers are slow growing; however, there are cases of aggressive prostat...
