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.
Hyperglycemia evoked oxidative stress contributing to diabetes (DM)-induced voiding dysfunction. We explored whether antioxidant sulforaphane,a NF-E2-related nuclear factor erythroid-2 (Nrf-2) activator, may ameliorate DM-induced bladder dysfunction.
Multiple sclerosis (MS) causes voiding dysfunction and might predispose to urologic complications. However, long-term complications and risk factors for complications are unknown. We aim to assess long-term changes in voiding function and to determine risk factors for urologic complications during MS follow-up.
Shift workers often experience problems associated with circadian disruption associated with artificial light at night and nocturia is commonly noted in night-shift workers. Nocturia associated with circadian disruption is due to increased urine production of the kidney and decreased storage function of the bladder. A recent discovery of peripheral clock genes in the bladder and their role in contractile property of the bladder support that micturition is closely related to the circadian rhythm. Moreover, t...
The aims of the study were to evaluate the reproducibility of bladder voiding efficiency (BVE) between free flow (FF) and intubated flow(IF) in old women, and to search for a relationship of this index with complaint and urodynamic diagnosis.
Detrusor underactivity (DU) is a common but poorly understood clinical problem. The diagnosis and treatment are difficult and full of uncertainties. There are many overlaps between DU and bladder outlet obstruction (BOO) in men. Prostatic surgery might improve voiding efficiency (VE). This study aims to investigate effectiveness and predictors of voiding function recovery after prostate surgery in patients with DU.
Laboratory mice are used to identify causes of urinary dysfunction including prostate-related mechanisms of Lower Urinary Tract Symptoms (LUTS). Effective use of mice for this purpose requires a clear understanding of molecular, cellular, anatomical, and endocrine contributions to voiding function. Whether the prostate influences baseline voiding function has not been specifically evaluated, in part because most methods that alter prostate mass also change circulating testosterone concentrations. We perform...
Patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) develop a variety of lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS). We previously characterized a murine model of neurogenic bladder dysfunction induced by a neurotropic strain of a coronavirus. In the present study, we further study the role of long-lasting neurodegeneration on the development of neurogenic bladder dysfunction in mice with corona-virus induced encephalitis (CIE). Long-term follow up study revealed three phenotypes of neurodegenerative symptom development: recove...
Dysfunction of the lower urinary tract (LUT) is prevalent in neurological disorders, including multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal cord injury and neurodegenerative conditions. Common symptoms include urgency, incontinence, and urinary retention. Recent advances in neuromodulation have resulted in improved treatments for overactive bladder symptoms of urgency, frequency, and nocturia. However, there are presently no treatments available for the induction of voiding to overcome urinary retention. We demonstra...
To assess whether intraurethral anesthesia decreased voiding efficiency (VE), reduced catheterization pain, and impacted urodynamic parameters in healthy adult females.
The aim of this study is to evaluate if voiding cystourethrography (VCUG) is necessary for the evaluation of unilateral ectopic pelvic kidney (UEPK) in order to identify vesicoureteral reflux (VUR).
Radiological voiding cystourethrography has long been considered the gold standard for reflux testing in paediatric urology. Additional contrast-based procedures such as voiding urosonography or radionuclide cystography have been established in recent decades. Their main indication is reflux diagnosis after pyelonephritis in early infancy and childhood. The selection of the appropriate method is based on factors such as clinical question, availability, economic aspects, expenditure of human resources and ti...
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...
Alterations to arginine vasopressin (AVP) secretion, the urinary bladder urothelium (UT) and other components of the bladder, and the water homeostasis biosystem may be relevant to the pathophysiology of nocturia and nocturnal polyuria (NP). AVP is the primary hormone involved in water homeostasis. Disruption to the physiological release of AVP or its target effects may relate to several urinary disturbances. Circadian dysregulation and the effects of aging, e.g., the development of oxidative stress and mit...
To characterize obstructive voiding symptoms (OVS) in patients with overactive bladder (OAB) and normal postvoid residual volume (PVR) and assess their impact on patients' quality of life (QoL) and sexual function.
Dysfunctional voiding (DV) remains a poorly understood and a poorly managed problem, both in children and adults. The Think Tank (TT) discussed how to improve the management of DV in these two different age groups and in transitional care.
To prove objective effect of using mechanical device for immobilization of pediatric patient during voiding cystourethrogram (VCUG) compare immobilization by hand-holding.
To identify urodynamic factors associated with the mechanical stop test and immediate spontaneous voiding following transurethral resection of prostate (TURP).
The combination of a β-adrenoceptor agonist and an antimuscarinic agent was revealed to be more effective than monotherapy for patients with overactive bladder and in animal models. However, its influence on voiding functions has not been well documented. Therefore, during intermittent-cystometry, we studied the effects of vibegron (a novel β-adrenoceptor agonist) and imidafenacin (an antimuscarinic agent) alone to determine their dose levels for the combination study. Then, the effects of the combination...
Nitric oxide (NO) has a critical, but not well understood, influence in the physiology of the lower urinary tract. We evaluated the effect of NO/phosphodiesterase (PDE)5 signaling in voiding dysfunction in the sickle cell disease (SCD) mouse, characterized by low NO bioavailability.
To ascertain whether a poor response and adverse events (voiding dysfunction and urinary tract infection) were predictable for first time botulinum toxin-A (BTX-A) injections in a patient cohort of refractory idiopathic overactive bladder (OAB) with detrusor overactivity (DO).
Circadian expression rhythms of clock gene products in the bladder are reportedly hindered by clock gene abnormalities. However, the role of clock gene products in various pathological lower urinary tract conditions is unknown. The present study examined the relationship between clock genes and voiding dysfunction in spontaneous hypertensive rats (SHR). The voluntary voiding behavior study using metabolic cages was performed in 18-weeks old male Wistar rats (control group, n = 36) and SHR (SHR group, n = 36...
Oxidative stress is pointed out as a major mechanism by which ethanol induces functional and structural changes in distinctive tissues. We evaluated whether ethanol consumption would increase oxidative stress and cause/span>micturition dysfunction. Male C57BL/6J mice were treated with ethanol 20% (vol./vol.) for 10 weeks. Our findings showed that chronic ethanol consumption reduced micturition spots and urinary volume in conscious mice, whereas in anaesthetized animals cystometric analysis revealed reduced ...
The pelvic floor is a complex structure that supports the pelvic organs and provides resting tone and voluntary control of the urethral and anal sphincters. Dysfunction of or injury to the pelvic floor can lead to gastrointestinal, urinary, and sexual dysfunction. The prevalence of pelvic floor disorders is much lower in men than in women, and because of this, the majority of the published literature pertaining to MRI of the pelvic floor is oriented toward evaluation of the female pelvic floor. The male pel...
Mesh surgery for stress urinary incontinence or pelvic organ prolapse can result in complications such as mesh exposure, mesh extrusion, voiding dysfunction, dyspareunia and pain. There is limited knowledge or guidance on the effective management for mesh related complications.
