Acute/uncomplicated cystitis is the most common bacterial infection causing inflammation in the bladder tissues and predominantly diagnosed in women. Interstitial cystitis may too, cause inflammation in the bladder but its etiology has been elusive. Even though the site and symptoms of both diseases are largely shared, state of the urinary microbiome in these disorders have not been comparatively evaluated before. The purpose of this review is to assess and qualitatively compare structure and composition of...
To investigate whether the risk of interstitial cystitis increases among the patients with systemic lupus erythematosus.
Interstitial cystitis/bladder pain syndrome (IC/BPS) is a devastating urological chronic pelvic pain condition with an unknown etiology. Evidence-based psychological strategies are becoming more successful for symptom management as we learn more about the targets for intervention. Previous research has established an indirect relationship between depression and pain through catastrophizing, but there have yet to be studies examining the emerging role of emotion regulation in this relationship.
To describe a stepwise management of patients with interstitial cystitis/bladder pain syndrome (IC/BPS) with Hunner's lesions and present single institution long-term outcomes.
Interstitial cystitis (IC) is a chronic intractable disease. Recently, the potential application of stem cell (SC) therapy was suggested for IC management. This study aimed to establish an optimal SC source and verify the efficacy and safety of SC injection therapy in an IC rat model.
Toll-like receptor-7 (TLR7) is functionally involved in the pathogenesis of Hunner-type interstitial cystitis (HIC). In addition, maternally expressed gene 3 (MEG3) is implicated in many urethral diseases. In this study, we aimed to verify the hypothesis that exosomal MEG3 in urine can be used as a novel diagnostic biomarker for HIC.
To determine the possible role of potassium sensitivity test (PST) in predicting the success of hydrodistention (HD) in patients with bladder pain syndrome/interstitial cystitis (BPS/IC).
Interstitial cystitis/bladder pain syndrome (IC/BPS) is a chronic disease, which is difficult to treat. Patients usually seek for new therapies and might not follow-up regularly. This study investigated long-term symptom changes in patients with IC/BPS, especially in those who were lost to follow-up.
To assess the impact of multiple (two or more) bladder hydrodistentions (HODs) on anesthetic BC in a large cohort of IC/BPS patients. Urinary bladder hydrodistention (HOD) under anesthesia is a third line therapeutic approach used to treat patients with interstitial cystitis/bladder pain syndrome (IC/BPS). There is some concern that performing multiple therapeutic HODs may be contraindicated due to the potential for contributing to a diminished bladder capacity (BC) over time.
To evaluate whether hydrodistention with fulguration of Hunner lesions (HD/FUL) plus maintenance dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) therapy prolongs the recurrence-free time in patients with Hunner type interstitial cystitis (IC).
To determine the association and cumulative dose-response pattern between pentosan polysulfate sodium (PPS) use for interstitial cystitis (IC) and maculopathy.
To investigate the risks of overactive bladder (OAB) and bladder pain syndrome/interstitial cystitis (BPS/IC) in primary Sjögren's syndrome (pSS) patients. A nationwide, population-based cohort study was conducted using data from Taiwan's National Health Insurance Research Database. From 2001 to 2010, participants with newly diagnosed pSS were recognized as the study group. In addition, a comparison cohort of non-pSS participants was matched for age, gender, and initial diagnosis date. Risks of developing ...
Despite recommendations to avoid fluoroquinolones (FQs) as a first-line treatment for uncomplicated cystitis, recent data suggest that FQs remain widely prescribed. Therefore, the objectives of this study were to evaluate the appropriateness of empiric FQ use compared to nitrofurantoin for uncomplicated cystitis and to determine whether there are any trends or predictors of empiric FQ versus nitrofurantoin use for uncomplicated cystitis.
Cystectomy with urinary diversion is the gold standard for muscle invasive bladder cancer. It also may be performed as part of pelvic exenteration for non-urologic malignancy, neurogenic bladder dysfunction, and chronic conditions that result in a non-functional bladder (e.g., interstitial cystitis, radiation cystitis). Our objective is to describe the surgical technique of urinary diversion using large intestine as a conduit whilst creating an end colostomy, thereby avoiding a primary bowel anastomosis and...
Although evidence of a disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC)-like reaction has been identified in the lung parenchyma of patients with acute exacerbation of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF), an association between DIC and IPF outcome has not been elucidated. Therefore, we retrospectively investigated the association between the Japanese Association for Acute Medicine (JAAM)-DIC score and mortality in patients with acute exacerbation of fibrosing idiopathic interstitial pneumonia (AE-fIIP).
The World Health Organization has recommended herbal medicine for treatment and control of recurrent cystitis. This study was conducted to determine effect of eshnan on the prevention of recurrent cystitis. The present triple-blind clinical trial was conducted on 126 women (63 women per group) with recurrent cystitis. The participants were assigned to the intervention and control groups. Three 500-mg eshnan or placebo tablets were taken orally with a glass full of water by the participants half an hour afte...
Vulvodynia is chronic debilitating burning vulvar pain or pain on contact. Although women who suffer from vulvodynia are more likely than others to experience co-morbid interstitial cystitis (IC) and urinary tract infections (UTIs), few studies have explored whether women with vulvodynia experience adverse urinary symptoms (lower urinary tract symptoms [LUTS]) in the absence of urological pain.
The internal surface of the urinary bladder is covered by the urothelium, a stratified epithelium that forms an impermeable barrier to urinary solutes. Increased urothelial permeability to urinary solutes is thought to contribute to symptoms generation in several forms of cystitis by promoting the sensitization of bladder afferents. In this report we investigated the mechanisms that mediate bladder afferent hyperexcitability in a rat model of cystitis induced by the overexpression in the urothelium of claud...
Current guidelines recommend a nonfluoroquinolone agent as first-line treatment of acute uncomplicated cystitis (AUC) because of concerns of antimicrobial resistance and adverse effects.
A unique pigmentary maculopathy was recently described in 6 patients with long-term exposure to pentosan polysulfate sodium (PPS), a long-standing oral therapy for interstitial cystitis.
To explore caveolae- and clathrin-mediated internalization of muscarinic M2 and M3 receptors, recycling and degradation in formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded detrusor sections; to study alterations possibly involved in the pathophysiology of the bladder functional disorder, interstitial cystitis/bladder pain syndrome (IC/BPS).
We investigated the effects of Ba-Wei-Die-Huang-Wan (BWDHW) on ketamine-induced cystitis (KIC) in a rat model.
Urethral obstruction (UO) is a common complication of feline idiopathic cystitis (FIC). Robust treatment recommendations to prevent its recurrence are scarce.
In Korea, several household humidifier disinfectants (HDs) were clinically confirmed to cause HD-associated lung injury (HDLI). Polyhexamethylene guanidine (PHMG) phosphate is the main ingredient of the HDs found to be associated with lung disease. However, the association of HDs with other interstitial lung disease including idiopathic interstitial pneumonia (IIP) is not clear. We examined the relationship between HD exposure and IIP in a family-based study.
