Confocal Microscopy Dual Band in the Management of Bladder Cancer

2016-08-08 07:53:09 | BioPortfolio


Bladder cancer is one of the most common cancer worldwide and the second most frequent urological cancer. The photodynamic diagnosis technique (PDD) currently used (Hexvix®) has improved tumor detection but with a high false positive rate. Indeed, the main limitation of the PDD is its lack of specificity, ranging from 35 to 66%. The association of this technique with new technologies such as the Cellvizio Dual Band featuring simultaneous dual wavelength illumination and detection, could improve the identification of tumoral lesions. The objective of this study is to demonstrate the efficacy of Cellvizio dual band technique for the diagnosis of tumors bladders.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

Symptom of overactive detrusor muscle of the URINARY BLADDER that contracts with abnormally high frequency and urgency. Overactive bladder is characterized by the frequent feeling of needing to urinate during the day, during the night, or both. URINARY INCONTINENCE may or may not be present.

An abnormal passage in the URINARY BLADDER or between the bladder and any surrounding organ.

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.

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.
