Name: Practical radiation oncology
Although radical cystectomy is a standard treatment in muscle-invasive bladder cancer, bladder preservation therapy including transurethral resection of bladder tumor, radiotherapy, and concurrent che...
To compare the accuracy of using a bladder scanner to measure bladder volume through intermittent catheterization (IC) in patients and to introduce the Bladder Deformation Index (BDI) to develop a cor...
Bladder cancer is a serious cancer in the world, especially in advanced countries. Bladder cancer stem cells (CSCs) drive bladder tumorigenesis and metastasis. Circular RNAs (circRNAs) are involved ...
Trimodality therapy with maximal transurethral resection of bladder tumor and definitive chemoradiation reserving cystectomy for salvage of local recurrence is an accepted treatment alternative to upf...
Numerous studies have evaluated the factors associated with ECV success. Yet, bladder volume has never been examined. We hypothesize that maternal bladder volume may affect ECV success rate. We aim to...
The purpose of the study is to increase the radiation dose (Boost) to the bladder tumor. The bladder cancer patients included in the study will undergo tumor demarcation. The bladder demar...
RATIONALE: Specialized radiation therapy that delivers a high dose of radiation directly to the tumor may kill more tumor cells and cause less damage to normal tissue. Having a full bladde...
To demonstrate that radiotherapy treatments for bladder cancer can be delivered with greater accuracy using a new planning method and that this method can be used simply and effectively by...
Currently the Planning Target Volume (PTV) and Planning Organs at Risk Volume (PRV) margins used for pediatric radiation treatments are empiric; therefore, a quantitative assessment of the...
This randomized phase II trial studies how well radiation therapy and pembrolizumab work in treating patients with urothelial bladder cancer that is restricted to the site of origin, witho...
A HERNIA-like condition in which the weakened pelvic muscles cause the URINARY BLADDER to drop from its normal position. Fallen urinary bladder is more common in females with the bladder dropping into the VAGINA and less common in males with the bladder dropping into the SCROTUM.
Involuntary discharge of URINE as a result of physical activities that increase abdominal pressure on the URINARY BLADDER without detrusor contraction or overdistended bladder. The subtypes are classified by the degree of leakage, descent and opening of the bladder neck and URETHRA without bladder contraction, and sphincter deficiency.
An abnormal passage in the URINARY BLADDER or between the bladder and any surrounding organ.
A birth defect in which the URINARY BLADDER is malformed and exposed, inside out, and protruded through the ABDOMINAL WALL. It is caused by closure defects involving the top front surface of the bladder, as well as the lower abdominal wall; SKIN; MUSCLES; and the pubic bone.
Blocked urine flow through the bladder neck, the narrow internal urethral opening at the base of the URINARY BLADDER. Narrowing or strictures of the URETHRA can be congenital or acquired. It is often observed in males with enlarged PROSTATE glands.
Non-invasive bladder cancer is a cancer that is only in the inner lining of the bladder. Invasive bladder cancer is cancer that has spread into the deeper walls of the bladder. When the cancer has spread outside the bladder to other parts of the body, th...
