Postpartum urinary retention in women undergoing instrumental delivery: a cross sectional analytic study.

Acta Obstet Gynecol Scand 2020 Jul 11. Epub 2020 Jul 11.

Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology, Jawaharlal Institute of Medical Education & Research, Puducherry, India.

Introduction: Women undergoing instrumental delivery are known to be at higher risk of urinary retention, which can lead to long term complications such as voiding dysfunction Nulliparous women undergo a pronounced and sudden change in perineum due to stretching during delivery which may add to the perineal trauma from an episiotomy, increasing the risk of urinary retention. We aim to study the incidence and risk factors associated with postpartum urinary retention in women undergoing instrumental delivery.

Material And Methods: Pregnant women who had instrumental delivery after 37 weeks of gestation, at JIPMER, Puducherry, India between January - June 2017 were included in the study. Read More

Department of Gynecology and Obstetrics, The First Medical Center of Chinese PLA General Hospital, 28 Fuxing Road, Haidian District, Beijing, 100853, China.

Endometriosis, as a prevalent gynecological disease, is characterized by the presence of endometrial-like tissue outside the uterus, causing infertility and considerable pain and affecting the quality of life of women. The pathogenic mechanism has not been fully elucidated, and there are no effective biomarkers for endometriosis. In our study, microRNA (miRNA) expression profiling of 10 ectopic endometrial plasma from patients with ovarian endometriosis and 10 normal plasma from healthy controls was analyzed using a microarray.

lncRNA SNHG1 Promotes Basal Bladder Cancer Invasion via Interaction with PP2A Catalytic Subunit and Induction of Autophagy.

Mol Ther Nucleic Acids 2020 Jun 18;21:354-366. Epub 2020 Jun 18.

Department of Environmental Medicine, New York University School of Medicine, 341 East 25th Street, New York, NY 10010, USA. Electronic address:

Although basal muscle-invasive bladder cancers (MIBCs) are predominant, are more aggressive, and have bad prognoses, molecular mechanisms underlying how basal MIBC formation/progression have been barely explored. In the present study, SNHG1, a long non-coding RNA, was shown to be expressed at higher levels in basal MIBC cells than in other types of bladder BC cells, and its presence could promote basal MIBC cell invasion. The results revealed that SNHG1 specifically induced MMP2 expression via increasing its transcription and mRNA stability. Read More

DIAGNOSIS AND MANAGEMENT OF UROLUME URETHRAL STENT COMPLICATIONS USING ULTRASONOGRAPHY AND MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING.

Urology 2020 Jul 7. Epub 2020 Jul 7.

Department of Urology, Medical University of Gdansk, Poland. Electronic address:

The UroLume urethral stent (American Medical Systems) was introduced to the market in 1988 for management of male urethral stricture and benign prostatic hyperplasia [1]. However, recent reports in the literature showed long-term complications, including: urethral restenosis, urethral pain, recurrent urinary tract infections and stent migration. Therefore, UroLume's efficacy in managing bladder outlet obstruction had to be weighed against an alarmingly high rate of long-term complications [2,3]. Read More

An urgent case for sensory urgency: A patient perspective.

Authors:
Jane Meijlink

Neurourol Urodyn 2020 Jul 10. Epub 2020 Jul 10.

International Painful Bladder Foundation, Naarden, The Netherlands.

Interstitial cystitis/bladder pain syndrome (IC/BPS) patients around the world are all too familiar with the immense stress and anxiety caused by an urgent and frequent need to void, leading to many patients with IC/BPS staying at home in social isolation since they are afraid that they will not find a public toilet when they urgently need it. It is therefore of great concern that for almost two decades the "sensory" type of urgency due to intolerable pain or unpleasant sensation as typically experienced by this group of patients has no longer been officially recognized, researched or treated as a symptom of IC/BPS. This official misrepresentation of IC/BPS symptoms needs to be addressed and rectified for the sake of patients and to ensure medical accuracy in research. Read More

Biomark Med 2020 Jul 10. Epub 2020 Jul 10.

Department of Medical Oncology, Faculty of Medicine, Ataturk University, Yakutiye, Erzurum, Turkey.

To investigate the prognostic significance of pretreatment hemoglobin (HB)-to-red cell distribution width (RDW) ratio (HRR) in patients with muscle-invasive bladder cancer (MIBC). The neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR), systemic immune-inflammation index (SII), prognostic nutritional index, HRR, HB and RDW were analyzed to assess their prognostic value using the Kaplan-Meier curves and Cox-regression analysis in 152 patients with MIBC. Univariate analysis showed that the progression-free survival (PFS) was associated with NLR, SII, HRR, RDW, whereas overall survival (OS) was associated with NLR, SII, prognostic nutritional index, HRR, HB, RDW.

Anesthetic agents affect urodynamic parameters and anesthetic depth at doses necessary to facilitate preclinical testing in felines.

Sci Rep 2020 Jul 9;10(1):11401. Epub 2020 Jul 9.

Biointerfaces Institute, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI, USA.

Urodynamic studies, used to understand bladder function, diagnose bladder disease, and develop treatments for dysfunctions, are ideally performed with awake subjects. However, in small and medium-sized animal models, anesthesia is often required for these procedures and can be a research confounder. This study compared the effects of select survival agents (dexmedetomidine, alfaxalone, and propofol) on urodynamic (Δpressure, bladder capacity, bladder compliance, non-voiding contractions, bladder pressure slopes) and anesthetic (change in heart rate [∆HR], average heart rate [HR], reflexes, induction/recovery times) parameters in repeated cystometrograms across five adult male cats.

A prognostic index based on a fourteen long non-coding RNA signature to predict the recurrence-free survival for muscle-invasive bladder cancer patients.

School of Computer Science and Technology, Shaanxi Engineering Research Center of Medical and Health Big Data, Xi'an Jiaotong University, Xi'an, China.

Background: Bladder cancer (BC) is regarded as one of the most fatal cancer around the world. Nevertheless, there still lack of sufficient markers to predict the prognosis of BC patients. Herein, we aim to establish a prognosis predicting signature based on long-noncoding RNA (lncRNA) for the invasive BC patients. Read More

Electroacupuncture for post-stroke overactive bladder: a multi-centre pilot randomized controlled trial.

Acupunct Med 2020 Jul 9:964528420925488. Epub 2020 Jul 9.

School of Chinese Medicine, The University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong, China.

Background: Although acupuncture has been shown to be effective at treating overactive bladder (OAB) following stroke, to our knowledge, no randomized controlled trial (RCT) examining the effects of acupuncture on patients with post-stroke OAB has been conducted. The aim of this preliminary study was to explore the effects of electroacupuncture (EA) in the treatment of post-stroke OAB.

Methods: This study was a multi-site randomized, assessor-blind, controlled pilot trial of patients with post-stroke OAB. Read More

TERT promoter mutation analysis as a surrogate to morphology and immunohistochemistry in problematic spindle cell lesions of the urinary bladder.

Histopathology 2020 Jul 9. Epub 2020 Jul 9.

Institute of Pathology, University Hospital Erlangen, Friedrich-Alexander Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg, Erlangen, Germany.

Aims: Pseudosarcomatous myofibroblastic proliferations (PSMPs) of the urinary bladder are diagnostically challenging. Diagnostic difficulties are mainly due to frequent cytokeratin expression, variable ALK expression, and worrisome morphologic features suggestive of malignancy. On the opposite, sarcomatoid urothelial carcinoma (UC) may show bland inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor (IMT)-like morphology. Read More
