The US National Library of Medicine and National Institutes of Health manage PubMed.gov which comprises of more than 29 million records, papers, reports for biomedical literature, including MEDLINE, life science and medical journals, articles, reviews, reports and books.
BioPortfolio aims to cross reference relevant information on published papers, clinical trials and news associated with selected topics - speciality.
For example view all recent relevant publications on Epigenetics and associated publications and clincial trials.
The aim of this study was to compare long-term outcomes in patients who underwent either native tissue repair or monofilament macroporous polypropylene mesh.
To characterize purinergic signaling in overactive bladder (OAB).
Although pelvic floor dysfunction (PFD) has a multifactorial etiology, pregnancy and childbirth are considered crucial events predisposing to urinary incontinence as well as pelvic organ prolapse, which are highly prevalent. Rats are the most frequently used animal model and pudendal nerve crush (PNC) and vaginal distension (VD) are often used to mimic vaginal delivery.
There is a lack of evidence to assess whether gait functionality can be affected by the condition of the pelvic floor musculature in patients with multiple sclerosis (MS).
In the current climate of evidence-based health care, the aim of this meta-synthesis was to collect and systematically analyse data from primary qualitative studies on pelvic organ prolapse (POP), to identify patient-centered perspectives on the natural course of POP. Information acquired in this study may be useful for ongoing research towards the development of core outcome sets (COS) in pelvic floor disorders.
The urethral dysfunction produced by a rat model of peripheral neurogenic detrusor underactivity (DU) using pelvic nerve crush (PNC) injury was characterized and then tested with the administration of tadalafil, a phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE 5) inhibitor.
There is increasing evidence to suggest that thermomodulation may have a role in the management of women with lower urinary tract dysfunction (LUTD) and there has been widespread adoption of laser and radiofrequency (RF) therapies within clinical practice. However, in many areas of LUTD, the data are still limited and there remains a need for further evaluation of the safety and efficacy of thermal therapy. The aim of this study proposal is to report the findings of the International Consultation on Inconti...
To evaluate the diagnostic ability of different cough stress tests (CSTs) in women with pelvic organ prolapse (POP), performed during outpatient urogynaecological exams.
Polypropylene (PP) mesh has been used as a primary or adjuvant material for vaginal reconstruction for both stress urinary incontinence (SUI) and pelvic organ prolapse (POP) for decades. Whether polypropylene is the optimal material for such indications has been called into question by clinicians, regulatory agencies and the public in several countries around the world. This paper is a report of presentations and subsequent discussion at the annual International Consultation on Incontinence Research Society...
We compared brain activation patterns between female multiple sclerosis (MS) patients with voiding dysfunction (VD) and those without. We aim to expand current knowledge of supraspinal correlates of voiding initiation within a cohort of female MS patients with and without VD.
To enable the use of ICIQ-FLUTS, ICIQ-FLUTS-long-form (ICIQ-FLUTS-LF), ICIQ-LUTS-quality-of-life (ICIQ-LUTSqol), and ICIQ-FLUTS sexual functions (ICIQ-FLUTSsex) in Turkish speaking women, questionnaires were translated into Turkish and validity, reliability, and sensitivity to change were evaluated in women suffering from urinary incontinence (UI).
Lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) can be classified into symptom syndromes based on which symptoms are predominant. Overactive bladder (OAB) syndrome, a storage dysfunction, and underactive bladder (UAB) syndrome, a voiding dysfunction, are common syndromes, which urodynamic tests may show to be caused by detrusor overactivity (DO) and detrusor underactivity (DU), but can also be associated with other urethro-vesical dysfunctions. Sometimes OAB and UAB can coexist in the same patient and, if so, need a sp...
This paper aims to evaluate the feasibility of transperineal ultrasound imaging (TPUS) for visualizing the motion of pelvic landmarks associated with striated pelvic floor muscle contraction in men in standing; to compare the locations of pelvic landmarks between sitting and standing; and to compare the effects of different body positions on measures of pelvic floor muscle contraction.
To assess the state of technologies for urodynamics that are less invasive than standard cystometry and pressure-flow studies and to suggest areas needing research to improve this.
Synthetic midurethral sling (MUS) procedures, purported for the last two decades as the gold standard surgical treatment for stress urinary incontinence, have been in creasingly scrutinized in recent years with regard to the rate and severity of complications.
There is a large amount of intra and inter observer variability in defining curve shapes. This study aims to evaluate inter and intra rater reliability (RR) on evaluating uroflow curves in a broad spectrum of international practitioners.
Women with pelvic organ prolapse describe vaginal laxity and poor sensation of vaginal tone that does not correlate with anatomical findings. This discrepancy could be explained by altered vaginal sensation and a test that could measure sensation of vaginal tone, transmitted via Aα and Aβ nerve fibers, would further our understanding of the pathophysiology of vaginal laxity.
Lower urinary tract (LUT) function can be investigated by urodynamic studies (UDS) to establish underlying functional abnormalities in the LUT. A multicentre registry could present an opportunity to improve the scientific evidence base for UDS. During the International Consultation on Incontinence Research Society (ICI-RS) meeting in Bristol, United Kingdom 2019, an expert panel discussed the potential of a multicentre urodynamic registry to improve the quality of urodynamic output.
To elucidate the precise cellular and molecular mechanisms that underlie urethral fibrogenesis.
A randomized controlled study of the efficacy of tadalafil monotherapy versus combination of tadalafil and mirabegron for the treatment of persistent overactive bladder symptoms in men presenting with lower urinary tract symptoms (CONTACT Study).
To evaluate efficacy and safety of combination of tadalafil + mirabegron for overactive bladder/benign prostatic hyperplasia (OAB/BPH).
Compare the circadian trajectory of diuresis between nocturnal polyuria (NP) patients with versus without identifiable contributory comorbidities.
The objective of this study was to report the long-term outcomes and complications of patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) who underwent noncontinent urinary diversion to treat lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS).
Evaluating the safety and potential activity of URO-902 (hMaxi-K) gene transfer by intravesical instillation or direct injection into the bladder wall in female participants with idiopathic (non-neurogenic) overactive bladder syndrome and detrusor overactivity from two double-blind, imbalanced, placebo-controlled randomized phase 1 trials.
Two phase 1 trials were performed in healthy women with the overactive bladder (OAB) syndrome and urodynamically demonstrated detrusor overactivity (DO), with the aim to demonstrate the safety and potential efficacy of URO-902, which comprises a gene therapy plasmid vector expressing the human big potassium channel α subunit.
