Multiple Roles Of Aryloxide Leaving Groups In Enantioselective Annulations Employing Α,Β-Unsaturated Acyl Ammonium Catalysis, M. D. Greenhalgh, S. Qu, A. M. Slawin, A. D. Smith

Journal Articles

© 2018 The Royal Society of Chemistry. An isothiourea-catalysed Michael addition-annulation process using β-fluoroalkyl-substituted α,β-unsaturated aryl esters and a range of 2-acylbenzazoles is reported for the enantioselective synthesis of dihydropyranone and dihydropyridinone products bearing polyfluorinated stereocenters (29 examples, up to 98% yield, >99:1 er). The choice of aryl group of the aryl ester proved essential in determining reaction enantioselectivity and dihydropyranone:dihydropyridinone product selectivity. The aryloxide leaving group is shown to play a number of essential additional roles, operating (i) as a Brønsted base, circumventing the need for an auxiliary base; and (ii) as a Lewis base to catalyse ...

Efficacy Of Multi-Detector Computed Tomography For The Diagnosis Of Medullary Sponge Kidney, G. S. Gaunay, R. G. Berkenblit, C. H. Tabib, J. R. Blitstein, M. Patel, D. M. Hoenig

Journal Articles

© 2018 S. Karger AG, Basel. Objective: To expand the diagnostic armamentarium for medullary sponge kidney (MSK), we evaluate the use of high-resolution multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) for MSK diagnosis and compare to the standard intravenous urography (IVU). Despite a significant prevalence amongst stone formers, diagnosis of this well described condition has declined. IVU, the gold standard in MSK diagnosis, has largely been replaced by CT, which has previously been shown unable to demonstrate signs of MSK. Methods and Materials: Patients with known history of MSK based on IVU underwent limited MDCT urogram. Control group patients, without MSK, also had MDCT ...

Journal Articles

OBJECTIVES: Ultrasound (US) is often used for the work-up of testicular pathology. The findings may implicate on its management. However, there is only scant data on the correlation between US findings and testicular tumor type and size. Herein, we report on a multicenter study, analyzing these correlations. METHODS: The study included patients who underwent orchiectomy between 2000 and 2010. Their charts were reviewed for US echogeneity, lesion size, pathological dimensions, histology, and the presence of calcifications, fibrosis, necrosis and/or intraepithelial neoplasia. The incidence of these parameters in benign versus malignant lesions and seminomatous germ cell tumors (SGCT) versus nonseminomatous ...

Endoscopic Lysis Of Bladder Scar Associated With Hunner's Lesions: A New Technique, S. Bahlani, R. Moldwin Jan 2015

Endoscopic Lysis Of Bladder Scar Associated With Hunner's Lesions: A New Technique, S. Bahlani, R. Moldwin

Journal Articles

AbstractObjective Five to ten percent of interstitial cystitis/bladder pain syndrome (IC/BPS) patients have Hunner's lesions (HL), areas of non-specific inflammation and scarring. The poor quality of life of patients with HL is entwined in associated pain and loss of bladder capacity. Although the decrease in bladder capacity is usually dependent on pain, it may also be dependent upon scarring and associated compliance changes produced by the inflammatory process. This report reviews the potential role of endoscopic scar lysis using the holmium laser in the management of these patients whose only other therapeutic option is urinary diversion. Methods ...

Health-Related Quality Of Life (Hrqol) In Cystine Compared With Non-Cystine Stone Formers, F. Modersitzki, L. Pizzi, M. Grasso, D. S. Goldfarb

Journal Articles

Cystinuria is a genetic cause of recurrent kidney stones which may be more recurrent and larger than more common non-cystine stones. They may have a greater impact on health-related quality of life (HRQoL). We measured this impact by surveying HRQoL in patients with stones, comparing non-cystine stone formers (NCSF) to cystine stone formers (CYSF) and both groups to normative values of the US population. We used SF-36v2 via an internet instrument. CYSF patients were recruited via cystinuria-related websites, two patient advocacy groups, and an active endourology practice. NCSF patients were recruited from the same practice and by email. Total n ...
