Oktay OZMAN and Zubeyr TALAT

Article Type: RESEARCH ARTICLE | First Published: March 01, 2019

Antibiotherapy has shown a clinically significant decrease in PSA levels in some patients. However, the clinical benefit of this decrease, which would increase the diagnostic efficacy of PSA, has not yet been established. To our knowledge, PSA half-life and PSA-ENT2.5 (expected normalization time according to 2.5 ng/mL cut-off value) were unexamined parameters. The aim of this study is to investigate the efficacy of PSA-ENT2.5 and PSA half-life after antibiotherapy for predicting prostate cancer...

Elif Altinay Kirli, Cagatay Dogan, Mehmet Hamza Gultekin, Zubeyr Talat and Bulent Onal

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: January 28, 2019

Voiding dysfunction (VD) increases the frequency of vesicoureteral reflux (VUR). Subureteric injection is an effective method for the treatment; however, the presence of VD may affect the success rates. This study evaluated the results of single-session endoscopic treatment in patients admitting with VD symptoms who were diagnosed with VUR, and the effect of compliance to VD treatment on these results. The data regarding patients who were being followed up for non-neurogenic VD diagnosis and who...
