Urinary incontinence is an increasing medical and socio-economical problem. 44% of the elderly (>65 years) women and 28% of the elderly men suffer from unwilling urine loss. Moreover, this percentages increase with age. Incontinence is a problem with multiple physical, psychological, and financial effects. In addition incontinence has a important impact on the family and healthcare professionals surrounding the elderly.
The problem of urinary incontinence is complex and multifactorial. Moreover, diagnostic guidelines are inconsistent leading to a high amount of technical interventions to diagnose and to specify the type of incontinence.
Aim of this study is to create a short form of necessary technical investigations to diagnose and evaluate urinary incontinence.

Renal dysfunction more frequently occurs after intestinal transplantation (ITx) than after heart, lung, or liver transplantation. We provide a clinical analysis of renal function after adult ITx.
Renal scintigraphy is used to evaluate split renal function. A computed tomography (CT) examination is also carried out for donor safety and appropriate transplantation surgery, and the renal volume (...

The amount of PLASMA that perfuses the KIDNEYS per unit time, approximately 10% greater than effective renal plasma flow (RENAL PLASMA FLOW, EFFECTIVE). It should be differentiated from the RENAL BLOOD FLOW; (RBF), which refers to the total volume of BLOOD flowing through the renal vasculature, while the renal plasma flow refers to the rate of plasma flow (RPF).
The number of RED BLOOD CELLS per unit volume in a sample of venous BLOOD.
The number of LEUKOCYTES and ERYTHROCYTES per unit volume in a sample of venous BLOOD. A complete blood count (CBC) also includes measurement of the HEMOGLOBIN; HEMATOCRIT; and ERYTHROCYTE INDICES.
The number of PLATELETS per unit volume in a sample of venous BLOOD.
The volume of the HEART, usually relating to the volume of BLOOD contained within it at various periods of the cardiac cycle. The amount of blood ejected from a ventricle at each beat is STROKE VOLUME.
