In total, 150 patients following LTPL from deceased donors were enrolled from May 2009 until May 2011.
Furthermore, a receiver operating characteristic curve was established with suitable parameters, in order to create cut-off values to determine the prognostic value of each parameter with regard to the development of complications following LTPL. Comparisons of the areas under two or more correlated ROC curves were performed, as described by DeLong et al.
Baseline data of the 150 patients undergoing LTPL from deceased donors are presented in detail in Table 1.
Moreover, the amount of RCS-derived AGEs was shown to be influenced by the duration of warm ischemia time (WIT), since LTPL patients with a WIT [greater than or equal to] 90 min revealed significantly increased plasma levels of MG at T1 in comparison to LTPL patients with a WIT < 90 min (Figure 2).
The resulting ratio of both parameters (L-arg/ADMA ratio) revealed a reduced NO bioavailability in patients undergoing LTPL before as well as after the transplantation procedure, whereas it was most pronounced immediately after the end of the transplantation procedure (Table 2, Figure S3c).
The critical role of RCS in patients following LTPL has not been fully investigated.
Amac: Yazimizda anomalili bobreklerde gorulen bobrek taslarinin tedavisi icin uygulamis oldugumuz laparoskopik transperitoneal piyelolitotomi (LTPL) ve perkutan nefrolitotomi (PCNL) deneyimlerimizi sunduk.
Gerec ve yontem: Mayis 2006 ve Agustos 2010 tarihleri arasinda, bobrek tasi tanisiyla LTPL uygulanan 11 hastanin ve PCNL uygulanan 13 hastanin verilerini retrospektif olarak degerlendirdik.
LTPL grubunda ortalama ameliyat suresi ve hastanede yatis suresi daha uzun, tahmini kan kaybi ve postoperatif analjezik kullanimi daha az idi.
We report our experience with laparoscopic transperitoneal pyelolithotomy (LTPL) and PCNL in the management of patients with calculi in anomalous kidneys.
Data from eleven patients who underwent laparoscopic transperitoneal pyelolithotomy (LTPL) for kidney stones between May 2006 and August 2010 were retrospectively analyzed.
For 2 patients in the LTPL group, a flexible nephroscope was passed through one of the 10-mm ports and guided laparoscopically.
