For the HIFU Sonoblate 500 device has been used.

The study was a non-randomized prospective assessment of differences in the size of the penis and erectile function in men undergoing HIFU or TCAP for clinically localized CaP. For the HIFU Sonoblate 500 device has been used, and for treatment of an argon-based TCAP cryotherapy system was used. Color duplex sonography was after a single intracavernous injection of PGE1 followed by stimulation performed. After treatment, tumescence I to IV I to IV of a doctor observers. Penile length was measured from the tip of the glans against the skin and joint pubopenile penis circumference middle third of the middle third of the penile shaft. The study included an evaluation of the intra-observer variability in a group of 10 men.

The cohort included 102 Asian men, all with a at least 36 months follow-up. Generally good adherence to the use of the vacuum device was in the first 24 months, and then decreased. Erectile function recovery rate at 36 months after treatment was 46.8 percent for the TCAP group and 65.5 percent for the HIFU group. Testosterone levels decreased significantly for both treatments over the 24 month follow-up period. There was no significant difference in the the proportion of patients in both groups with grade III and IV artificial erection during penile Doppler ultrasound. (more…)

This drop could bear a virus.

– ‘Most of our research has found of the drop falls on the floor, after leaving the mouth of the drop, the liquid component is dried in the air and the dry residue travels great distances.’When a droplet in the air the residue is dried in the air carried out, and therefore there is a danger that the people that the inhale air and infected ‘. Professor Morawska said a droplet drying on a surface could be contagious, but the greater danger was droplets drying in the air.. The study QUT designed and constructed a machine to determine the distance a droplet to be measured moves in the air prior to drying.’This drop could bear a virus,’she said.

It appears that in some cases the same mechanism is at work in both disease processes.

Well, it appears that in some cases the same mechanism is at work in both disease processes, making us more susceptible to osteoporosis and heart attack and stroke.Longer risk of strokeOsteoporosis is a condition in which a reduction of the mineral content of the bones leads to low bone density. In 2001, Professor Lone J? provided. And her colleagues at the University of Troms? published a study showing that women who had had a stroke had much lower bone density than other women of the same age.
