Hide Abstract
Cancer prostate is the most common solid malignancy in males of developed countries. With increasing knowledge of the aetiology, pathogenesis and natural history of the disease, influences of dietary factors on prostate cancer development have become more evident. There is ample evidence in the literature of significance of dietary constituents for prostate cancer including vitamins A, D and E. Different vitamins have been found to effect the growth and proliferation of prostate cancer cells as evident in epidemiological, experimental and clinical studies. Various factors play the major role in determining the relationship between these vitamins and prostate cancer in terms of environmental, pharmacological, or genetic aspects. To explore these aspects, the present article reviews the literature on the present status of vitamin use for prevention and management of prostate cancer.

Cheek metastasis from a bladder tumor: unusual presentation of an aggressive disease.

Hide Abstract
Transitional cell carcinoma (TCC) has been well described for its propensity to metastasize to distant sites. Metastases to the soft tissues of the oral cavity from a bladder cancer are extremely rare. We present the case of a 65-year-old man who presented with history of hematuria for 1 month and was found to have high-grade TCC of the bladder. He developed a cheek lesion after 3 weeks, which was diagnosed as metastatic nodule along with pulmonary metastases from high-grade bladder TCC. The patient received chemotherapy followed by the radiotherapy of the cheek lesion, but he succumbed after 3 months due widespread metastatic disease. We also presented a review of the literature regarding this rare presentation.

Leiomyosarcoma, a nonurothelial bladder tumor: a rare entity with therapeutic diversity.

Hide Abstract
A 22-year-old young woman presented with dysuria and lower urinary tract symptoms that had persisted for 6 months. She was diagnosed with a tumor near the bladder neck. Transurethral resection was done under anaesthesia. The histopathological examination with immunohistochemical staining showed the tumor to be a low-grade leiomyosarcoma. Adjuvant chemoradiation was given, and the patient has been doing well for 12 months of follow-up. Nonurothelial tumors of the bladder are rare and consensus is lacking regarding their definitive treatment. Furthermore, little is known about the natural history and prognosis of this type of bladder sarcoma. We present a minimally invasive treatment for this relatively rare tumor in which bladder preservation was achieved with no evidence of local or distant recurrences during the follow-up to date.

Effect of Phallic Stretch on Length of Bulbous Urethral Stricture during Retrograde Urethrography.
Urol. Int.
PUBLISHED: 05-22-2013
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Objective: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of phallic stretch on bulbous urethral stricture while performing retrograde urethrography (RUG). Methods: Between July 2009 and June 2012, 197 adult males with stricture pattern on uroflowmetry underwent RUG. Two films were taken, first without (film A) and second after stretching the penis by about 5 cm (film B). 29 cases with proximal and distal bulbous strictures were included in the present analysis. The data recorded were stricture lengths in films A and B. Results: 12 men had distal bulbous or penobulbous stricture (group 1) while 17 had stricture involving the proximal bulb (group 2). Mean stricture length in group 1 was 2.82 cm (range 1.2-4.2 cm) in film A and 4.59 cm (range 3.0-6.4 cm) in film B. In group 2 stricture length was 1.76 cm (range 1.0-2.3 cm) in film A and 1.79 cm (range 1.0-2.5 cm) in film B. The percentage change in stricture length on stretching was 38.48% (p = 0.0001) in group 1 and 1.67% (p = 0.8301) in group 2. Conclusions: The impact of phallic stretch on radiographic length during RUG was found to be significant in distal bulbous but not in proximal urethral stricture, which is important when interpreting the RUG and deciding the management of stricture. © 2013 S.

Significant impact of the MTHFR polymorphisms and haplotypes on male infertility risk.
PLoS ONE
PUBLISHED: 01-01-2013
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) converts 5,10-methylene tetrahydrofolate to 5-methyl tetrahydrofolate and affects the activity of cellular cycles participating in nucleotide synthesis, DNA repair, genome stability, maintenance of methyl pool, and gene regulation. Genetically compromised MTHFR activity has been suggested to affect male fertility. The objective of the present study was to find the impact on infertility risk of c.203G>A, c.1298A>C, and c.1793G>A polymorphisms in the MTHFR gene.

Primary hepatocellular carcinoma in ectopic liver masquerading as left adrenal carcinoma: a rare occurrence.
Rare Tumors
PUBLISHED: 02-15-2010
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
We report a unique case of primary hepatocellular carcinoma in an ectopic liver rest in the left renal hilum masquerading as a left adrenal tumor. Adrenal tumors have been reported within adrenal rests inside the liver but hepatocellular carcinoma in ectopic liver rests in the adrenal area is an extremely rare entity. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case report from the Indian subcontinent to describe this event in the English literature.Our patient, a sixty-year-old, non-diabetic, non-hypertensive male, presented with a history of left flank pain for the past six months. He was a chronic smoker and also consumed excessive amounts of alcohol. He had chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and was hepatitis B surface antigen positive. A contrast enhanced computer tomography scan of the abdomen showed an 8×8×8 cm, well-defined, heterogeneously enhancing mass with central necrosis, in the left suprarenal region. The provisional diagnosis of an adrenal tumor was made and open transperitoneal excision of the tumor along with two enlarged lymph nodes was done. Immunohistochemistry staining of the specimen revealed it to be a primary hepato cellular carcinoma. The patient died within six months of surgery owing to extensive metastases. We concluded that chronic hepatitis B infection and chronic and excessive alcohol consumption and/or chronic smoking may have been the predisposing factors for the occurrence of primary hepatocellular carcin oma in the liver rest in our patient. The prognosis appears to be poor despite surgical management.

Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is an age related non-malignant disease diagnosed as lower urinary tract symptoms and prostatic enlargement. Null genotypes in drug detoxification glutathione-S-transferase genes/enzymes, such as GSTT1 and GSTM1 have been reported to increase risk of several cancers including prostate. Meta-analysis on PC also suggested significant impact of GSTM1 null genotype but not that of GSTT1; however, BPH data have not been subjected to meta-analysis.

What is Visualize?

JoVE Visualize is a tool created to match the last 5 years of PubMed publications to methods in JoVE's video library.

How does it work?

We use abstracts found on PubMed and match them to JoVE videos to create a list of 10 to 30 related methods videos.

Video X seems to be unrelated to Abstract Y...

In developing our video relationships, we compare around 5 million PubMed articles to our library of over 4,500 methods videos. In some cases the language used in the PubMed abstracts makes matching that content to a JoVE video difficult. In other cases, there happens not to be any content in our video library that is relevant to the topic of a given abstract. In these cases, our algorithms are trying their best to display videos with relevant content, which can sometimes result in matched videos with only a slight relation.
