The fundamentals of chronic pelvic pain assessment, based on international continence society recommendations.

Neurourol Urodyn 2018 Aug;37(S6):S32-S38

Division of Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Drexel University College of Medicine, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Aims: Chronic pelvic pain (CPP) is defined as a noncyclical pain that has duration of at least 6 months and can lead to decreased quality of life and physical performance. The pain can be attributed to problems in the pelvic organs and/or problems in related systems, and possible psycho-social attributes may contribute to the manifestation. Due to the complex nature, CPP syndromes are multifactorial and the terminology needs to reflect the setting. Read More

Surg Pathol Clin 2018 Dec;11(4):837-876

Departments of Pathology and Urology, VCU School of Medicine, 1200 East Marshall Street, PO Box 980662, Richmond, VA 23298, USA. Electronic address:

Mesenchymal neoplasms of the genitourinary (GU) tract often pose considerable diagnostic challenges due to their wide morphologic spectrum, relative rarity, and unexpected incidence at GU sites. Soft tissue tumors arise throughout the GU tract, whether from adventitia surrounding or connective tissues within the kidneys, urinary bladder, and male and female genital organs. This selected article focuses on a subset of these lesions, ranging from benign to malignant and encompassing a range of patterns of mesenchymal differentiation, where recent scholarship has lent greater insight into their clinical, molecular, or diagnostic features.

Intersex, Hermaphroditism, and Gonadal Plasticity in Vertebrates: Evolution of the Müllerian Duct and Amh/Amhr2 Signaling.

Annu Rev Anim Biosci 2018 Oct 10. Epub 2018 Oct 10.

Physiological Chemistry, Biocenter, University of Würzburg, D-97074 Würzburg, Germany; email:

In vertebrates, sex organs are generally specialized to perform a male or female reproductive role. Acquisition of the Müllerian duct, which gives rise to the oviduct, together with emergence of the Amh/Amhr2 system favored evolution of viviparity in jawed vertebrates. Species with high sexspecific reproductive adaptations have less potential to sex reverse, making intersex a nonfunctional condition. Read More

Department of Medicine, Renal Research Institute, New York Medical College, Valhalla, NY, United States; Department of Physiology, Renal Research Institute, New York Medical College, Valhalla, NY, United States. Electronic address:

Maternal undernutrition during pregnancy (MUN) often leads to low birth weight (LBW) neonates that have a reduced total nephron endowment, leaving these neonates susceptible to kidney disease throughout their lives. For reasons unknown, these LBW neonates have impaired kidney development due to a severe reduction in renal SIX2 stem cells during nephrogenesis. Using a mouse model of MUN, we investigated SIX2 stem cell reduction in the LBW neonate. Read More

Service de Gynécologie-Obstétrique, Pôle Femme et Enfant, CHU Estaing, 1, place Lucie et Raymond Aubrac, 63003 Clermont-Ferrand, France.

The use of gynecological pessary to put back up prolapsed organs to their normal position appears to be as effective as surgical management to relieve symptoms related to uro-genital prolapse and restore body image. This millenary device can be used temporarily, awaiting a surgical solution or as a therapeutic test (mimicking the effect of a surgical procedure to predict its functional outcome or identifying a masked urinary incontinence). It can also represent an alternative to surgery (patient choice, women who wish to complete childbearing or who are unsuitable for surgery because of medical comorbidities) and thus can be used in first intention.

Chemosphere 2018 Oct 26;209:981-988. Epub 2018 Jun 26.

College of Veterinary Medicine, Northeast Agricultural University, Harbin, 150030, PR China; Key Laboratory of the Provincial Education Department of Heilongjiang for Common Animal Disease Prevention and Treatment, Northeast Agricultural University, Harbin, 150030, PR China; Heilongjiang Key Laboratory for Laboratory Animals and Comparative Medicine, Northeast Agricultural University, Harbin, 150030, PR China. Electronic address:

Di (2-ethyl hexyl) phthalate (DEHP) as a plasticizer can leach away from the plastic and hence entrances into the animal food chain which caused serious hazard in organs of animals, but there are few studies on DEHP kidney toxicity. The heat-shock response (HSR) consisting of the HSPs and HSFs plays an important role in various toxicity stress conditions. To investigate the influence on kidney toxicity and the modulation of HSR during DEHP exposure, female quail were fed the diet with 0, 250, 500 and 750 mg/kg DEHP by gavage administration for 45 days.

Relationship Between Individual Components of the Extended-Criteria Donor Definition and the First Post-transplant Kidney Graft Resistance Index, Measured by Doppler Sonography.

Transplant Proc 2018 Jul - Aug;50(6):1680-1685. Epub 2018 Mar 13.

Department of Nephrology, Transplantation and Internal Medicine, Medical University of Silesia, Katowice, Poland.

Background: Despite an increasing utilization of kidneys procured from expanded-criteria donors, little is known about the effects of particular expanded-criteria donors definition components, that is, hypertension, increased creatinine prior to procurement, and cerebrovascular cause of death on the kidney graft Doppler parameters measured shortly after transplantation, whose increased values are associated with unfavorable outcomes. Hence, we analyzed the relationship between expanded-criteria donors components and resistance index values measured within 2 to 3 days post-transplant.

Material And Methods: The initial post-transplant resistance index value was measured in 676 consecutive successful first cadaveric kidney graft recipients without delayed graft function or early acute rejection episode. Read More
