Non-invasive estimation of prostate cancer aggressiveness using diffusion-weighted MRI and 3D proton MR spectroscopy at 3.0?T.
Acta Radiol

Hide Abstract
Clinical management of prostate cancer increasingly aims to distinguish aggressive types that require immediate and radical treatment from indolent tumors that are candidates for watchful waiting. This requires reliable and reproducible parameters to effectively control potential cancer progression. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) may provide a non-invasive means for this purpose.

Direct effects of vardenafil on the ureter: in vitro investigation and potential clinical applications of intralumenal administration.

Hide Abstract
Local intralumenal administration of substances with beneficial effects over the ureter appears to be a very attractive route for the administration of drugs to the urinary system, avoiding systemic adverse reactions associated with per os administration. This work investigates whether vardenafil is a good candidate for local intralumenal ureteral administration. More precisely, we examined the effect of vardenafil on human ureter contractility and on the viability of cultured human urothelial cells (hUC) and bladder smooth muscle cells (hBSMC). Our study revealed that vardenafil induced a dose-depended relaxation of isolated human ureteral tissue. In addition, growth and cell viability of cultured hBSMC and hUC remained unaltered after vardenafil application. Based on the above, this selective phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitor can be considered as a promising pharmacologic agent for local intralumenal administration in clinical conditions in which ureteral dilation might be beneficial.

Evaluating the learning curve of experienced laparoscopic surgeons in robot-assisted radical prostatectomy.
J. Endourol.
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Radical prostatectomy is the gold standard surgical treatment for organ-confined prostate cancer. There is no consensus on the impact of previous laparoscopic experience on the learning curve of robot-assisted laparoscopic prostatectomy (RALP). We compared the perioperative complications and early patient outcomes from our initial 100 cases of RALP with laparoscopic prostatectomy (LRP) cases performed well beyond the learning curve.

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.
