The role of gonadal venography in the management of the adult with non-palpable undescended testis

British Journal of Urology
P PommervilleR Desmarais

Abstract

Selective gonadal venography was performed on 9 adult patients with 11 nonpalpable undescended testes. The gonad was accurately localised pre-operatively on 7 occasions. Testicular agenesis was predicted in 2 instances and strongly suggested in 2 others. Four failures were recorded, 2 on the right and 2 on the left. Accurate pre-operative localisation shortened operative time and reduced the extent of the surgical exploration. The demonstration of agenesis of the testis may obviate the need for surgery.

COVID-19

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.
