Medical Evaluation and Management of Male and Female Voiding Dysfunction: A Review.

Rom J Intern Med 2019 Apr 12. Epub 2019 Apr 12.

Department of Urology, Sidney Kimmel Medical College at Thomas Jefferson University, Philadelphia, PA.

A significant workforce shortage of urologists available to serve the US population has been projected to occur over the next decade. Accordingly, much of the management of urologic patients will need to be assumed by other specialties and practitioners. Since primary care physicians are often first evaluate common urologic complaints, it makes sense that these physicians are in an excellent position to intervene in the management of these patients when appropriate.

Urodynamics Before Stress Urinary Incontinence Surgery in Modern Functional Urology.

Eur Urol Focus 2019 Apr 12. Epub 2019 Apr 12.

Department of Urology, Complejo Hospitalario Universitario de Canarias, Universidad de La Laguna, La Laguna, Tenerife, Spain.

There is an ongoing debate in functional urology forums about the role and utility of urodynamics as a diagnostic and prognostic tool for patients with urinary incontinence. Current evidence suggests that in a limited number of patients with pure stress urinary incontinence (those without relevant urogynaecological comorbidities and a low postvoid residual volume of urine), urodynamic studies can be avoided, although this opinion remains controversial. PATIENT SUMMARY: Stress urinary incontinence is highly prevalent and surgical treatment is frequently needed. Read More

Prostate cancer treatment with Irreversible Electroporation (IRE): Safety, efficacy and clinical experience in 471 treatments.

PLoS One 2019 15;14(4):e0215093. Epub 2019 Apr 15.

Vitus Prostate Center, Institut für Bildgebende Diagnostik, Offenbach, Germany.

Background: Irreversible Electroporation (IRE) is a novel image-guided tissue ablation technology that induces cell death via very short but strong pulsed electric fields. IRE has been shown to have preserving properties towards vessels and nerves and the extracellular matrix. This makes IRE an ideal candidate to treat prostate cancer (PCa) where other treatment modalities frequently unselectively destroy surrounding structures inducing severe side effects like incontinence or impotence.

Electrical stimulation for neuroregeneration in urology: a new therapeutic paradigm.

Curr Opin Urol 2019 Apr 9. Epub 2019 Apr 9.

Department of Biomedical Engineering, Lerner Research Institute, Cleveland Clinic.

Purpose Of Review: The present review highlights regenerative electrical stimulation (RES) as potential future treatment options for patients with nerve injuries leading to urological dysfunction, such as urinary incontinence, voiding dysfunction or erectile dysfunction. Additionally, it will highlight the mechanism of nerve injury and regeneration as well as similarities and differences between RES and current electrical stimulation treatments in urology, functional electrical stimulation (FES) and neuromodulation.

Recent Findings: It has been demonstrated that RES upregulates brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) and its receptor to facilitate neuroregeneration, facilitating accurate reinnervation of muscles by motoneurons. Read More

Methods: We prospectively collected clinical information of prostate cancer patients who underwent LSRP with modified bladder neck intussusception (n = 10) and non-intussusception (n = 10). At postoperative 1 month, the prostate-specific antigen (PSA), pad test, real-time magnetic resonance imaging (rt-MRI), and flow rate were performed. Read More

Clinical study of effectiveness and safety of CELcomplex containing Cucurbita Pepo Seed extract and Flax and Casuarina on stress urinary incontinence in women.

J Tradit Complement Med 2019 Apr 3;9(2):138-142. Epub 2018 May 3.

Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology, Faculty of Pharmacy in Bratislava, Comenius University, Slovakia.

Aim: The safety and effectiveness of a preparation containing a mix of Cucurbita Pepo Seed extract, Equisetum arvense and Linum usitatissimum - Flax A (CELcomplex) on stress urinary incontinence (SUI) was evaluated in female patients recruited from 20 urological and gynaecological outpatient clinics in Slovakia.

Methods: A total of 86 women aged from 32 to 88 with SUI (grade 1 = 44, grade 2 = 42) were enrolled in the study and followed-up for six weeks (point 1) and twelve weeks (point 2).

Protective Role of Nuclear Factor Erythroid-2-Related Factor 2 against Mechanical Trauma-Induced Apoptosis in a Vaginal Distension-Induced Stress Urinary Incontinence Mouse Model.

Oxid Med Cell Longev 2019 6;2019:2039856. Epub 2019 Mar 6.

Department of Gynecology and Obstetrics, Renmin Hospital of Wuhan University, Wuhan, Hubei Province 430060, China.

Apoptosis and oxidative damage are involved in the pathogenesis and progression of stress urinary incontinence (SUI). Our previous results indicate that cell apoptosis and oxidative damage increase in a mouse model of mechanical injury-induced SUI and in fibroblasts treated with excessive mechanical strain. Nuclear factor erythroid-2-related factor 2 (Nrf2) is a well-characterized global antioxidant gene inducer that can reduce oxidative damage and apoptosis. Read More

Synchronous Urethral Repair During Prosthetic Surgery: Safety of Planned and Damage Control Approaches Using Suprapubic Tube Urinary Diversion.

J Sex Med 2019 Apr 5. Epub 2019 Apr 5.

Department of Urology, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, TX. Electronic address:

Background: Urethral injury during inflatable penile prosthesis (IPP) or artificial urinary sphincter (AUS) placement is rare, and traditionally most prosthetic surgeons abort prosthetic implantation when urethral repair is necessary.

Aim: To report our experience with synchronous urethroplasty (SU) as a planned or damage control surgery during urologic prosthetic surgery, to evaluate the safety and outcomes of the procedure.

Methods: A retrospective review of our IPP and AUS database was completed to identify patients who underwent an SU between 2007 and 2018. Read More

Interlaminar stabilization and decompression for the treatment of bilateral juxtafacet cysts: Case report and literature review.

Int J Surg Case Rep 2019 Mar 30;57:155-159. Epub 2019 Mar 30.

Department of Neurological Surgery, University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, Miami, FL, USA.

Introduction: Lumbar juxtafacet cysts (JFCs) are a common cause of lumbar radiculopathy which tend to occur in areas of increased facet mobility. While resection alone is a possible treatment, recent publications suggest that laminectomy alone for JFCs may not yield as favorable an outcome as laminotomies reinforced with posterior dynamic hardware. The Coflex is a novel interlaminar stabilization device that has been shown to achieve comparable results to rigid fusion in the management of lumbar stenosis in patients with no more than grade one anterolisthesis, and superior performance compared to laminectomy alone when a combined outcome score was used.
