CONCLUSIONS: Rezum achieved a greater improvement in symptom relief compared to UroLift. Improvement in ejaculatory dysfunction in patients treated with UroLift was greater than Rezum.
CONCLUSION: Patients with longer dialysis times, kidneys from laparoscopic donor nephrectomy, and depleting induction therapy were associated with an increased risk for developing symptomatic lymphoceles. Our center's treatment for symptomatic lymphoceles did not result in significant graft dysfunction, but significantly higher healthcare resource utilization was noted.
CONCLUSIONS: The role of metformin and statins remains promising with several trials showing reduced rates of progression and cancer specific mortality. Combination therapy strategies have also been evaluated in more advanced patients showing synergism. Dietary interventions especially fruits, vegetables and fish intake has shown some benefit albeit with mixed results for others like legumes, red meat, coffee and multivitamins. Several ongoing randomized trials will provide stronger evidence in...

In the course of human history few scientific breakthroughs can rival the importance of the discovery of DNA. Our ever increasing ability to unravel the secrets contained in this molecule allow new insight in to the etiology and eventual treatment of human conditions ranging from congenital structural disorders to cancer. It is the focus of this article to touch upon sequencing technologies and their potential to provide information that can revolutionize healthcare.
