Stem Cells for Urinary Incontinence: Functional Differentiation or Cytokine Effects?

Urology 2018 Jul 12;117:9-17. Epub 2018 Jan 12.

Department of Urology, Glickman Urological and Kidney Institute, Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland, OH; Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine at Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, OH; Department of Biomedical Engineering, Lerner Research Institute, Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland, OH; Advanced Platform Technology Center, Louis Stokes Cleveland VA Medical Center, Cleveland, OH. Electronic address:

Minimally invasive stem cell therapy for stress urinary incontinence may provide an effective nonsurgical treatment for this common condition. Clinical trials of periurethral stem cell injection have been under way, and basic science research has demonstrated the efficacy of both local and systemic stem cell therapies. Results differ as to whether stem cells have a therapeutic effect by differentiating into permanent, functional tissues or exert benefits through a transient presence and the secretion of regenerative factors.

Comparative Oncologic and Toxicity Outcomes of Salvage Radical Prostatectomy Versus Nonsurgical Therapies for Radiorecurrent Prostate Cancer: A Meta-Regression Analysis.

Eur Urol Focus 2016 Jun 4;2(2):158-171. Epub 2015 Oct 4.

Department of Urology, Addenbrooke's University Hospital, Cambridge, UK; Academic Urology Group, Department of Surgery and Oncology, University of Cambridge, Cambridge Biomedical Campus, Cambridge, UK. Electronic address:

Context: In the absence of randomised controlled trials comparing the oncologic, toxicity, and functional outcomes of salvage radical prostatectomy (SRP), salvage high-intensity focused ultrasound (SHIFU), salvage brachytherapy (SBT), and salvage cryotherapy (SCT), controversy exists as to the optimal salvage modality in radiorecurrent prostate cancer.

Objective: We carried out a meta-regression analysis to determine whether there is a difference in oncologic, toxicity, and functional outcomes using data from original publications of salvage modalities in the postradiation setting.

Evidence Acquisition: We performed a systematic review of PubMed/Medline citations according to the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Review and Meta-analysis (PRISMA) statement. Read More

Conservative Management of Urinary Incontinence in Women.

Rev Urol 2015 ;17(3):129-39

Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, New Brunswick, NJ.

Urinary incontinence in women has a high prevalence and causes significant morbidity. Given that urinary incontinence is not generally a progressive disease, conservative therapies play an integral part in the management of these patients. We conducted a nonsystematic review of the literature to identify high-quality studies that evaluated the different components of conservative management of stress urinary incontinence, including behavioral therapy, bladder training, pelvic floor muscle training, lifestyle changes, mechanical devices, vaginal cones, and electrical stimulation.

Differences in Patterns of Preoperative Assessment Between High, Intermediate, and Low Volume Surgeons When Performing Hysterectomy for Uterovaginal Prolapse.

Female Pelvic Med Reconstr Surg 2016 Jan-Feb;22(1):7-10

From the *Division of Urogynecology, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston, MA; †Division of Urogynecology, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI; ‡Division of Urogynecology, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Southern California Permanente Medical Group, Irvine, CA; §Division of Statistics, School of Public Health, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI; and ∥Division of Urogynecology, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Vanderbilt University, Nashville, TN.

Objective: The aim of the study was to determine whether surgeon case volume is associated with preoperative evaluation of pelvic organ prolapse before a hysterectomy for uterovaginal prolapse including a complete objective evaluation of prolapse (Baden-Walker or Pelvic Organ Prolapse Quantification), an offer of nonsurgical options for therapy (pessary), and a preoperative assessment of urinary incontinence

Methods: We performed a multicenter retrospective review of hysterectomies done for uterovaginal prolapse at 4 hospital systems between January 1, 2008 and December 31, 2011. The number of hysterectomies per surgeon for 4 years was evaluated to establish low-volume (≤10 cases), intermediate-volume (11-49 cases), and high-volume (≥50 cases) groups. Rates of preoperative standardized prolapse evaluations, offer of pessary, and evaluation of stress urinary incontinence were determined by chart review of 15% of the hysterectomy cases. Read More

Curr Urol Rep 2010 Mar;11(2):109-13

Division of Urology, Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, Wood Center, 3rd Floor, 34th Street and Civic Center Boulevard, Philadelphia, PA, 19104, USA.

The nonsurgical management of patients with spina bifida is predicated on maintaining a compliant bladder of adequate size or correcting detrusor sphincter dyssynergy that can lead to progressive bladder damage and ultimately upper tract changes. Pharmacologic management, targeted at the detrusor and/or external sphincter, can be done. Neuromodulation using transcutaneous approaches with interferential electrostimulation, sacral (S2-S3) via digital transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation, and percutaneous tibial nerve stimulation all have shown varied successes.

Scott Department of Urology, Baylor College of Medicine, 6400 Fannin Street, Suite 2300, Houston, TX 77030, USA.

Transurethral collagen denaturation was approved by the US Food and Drug Administration in 2005 for the nonsurgical treatment of stress urinary incontinence in women. In this procedure, controlled, nonablative radiofrequency energy applied through a transurethral probe produces microscopic submucosal sites of collagen denaturation, resulting in reduced tissue compliance. Treatment is administered in about 30 minutes in an outpatient setting without incisions, general anesthesia, or use of cystoscopy or other visualization. Read More

Womens Health (Lond) 2007 Nov;3(6):725-33

Illinois Urogynecology, Ltd, 5716 W 95th Street, Oak Lawn, IL 60453-2345, USA.

Stress urinary incontinence affects women of all ages, becoming more prevalent with increasing age. While many nonsurgical therapies are available for the treatment of stress urinary incontinence, options are limited for women who fail to respond to these therapies yet may not be candidates for, or wish to avoid, surgery. This limitation prompted efforts to develop less-invasive procedures for treating stress urinary incontinence patients, including bulking-agent injections and a new transurethral, radiofrequency collagen-denaturation system.

Rev Urol 2004 ;6 Suppl 3:S29-47

Treatment options for stress urinary incontinence (SUI) in women are designed to prevent the involuntary loss of urine from the urethra during increases in intraabdominal pressure that occur during physical activity, coughing, or sneezing. Effective nonsurgical therapies include behavioral therapy (eg, bladder training, fluid and dietary modification) and drug therapy. Surgical therapy for this condition has existed for well over 100 years. Read More

The future of bladder control-intravesical drug delivery, a pinch of pepper, and gene therapy.

Rev Urol 2002 ;4(1):1-11

The incidence of urinary incontinence and overactive bladder problems will continue to grow as the population ages. Future treatments are likely to include an implantable drug delivery system, gene therapy, and the intravesical use of the vallinoids capsaicin and resiniferatoxin (RTX). An understanding of the urothelium is essential for effective design of these therapies. Read More

Pharmacotherapy for stress urinary incontinence : present and future options.

Drugs 2004 ;64(14):1503-16

Western Clinical Research Inc., 23441 Madison Street, Suite 130, Torrance, CA 90505, USA.

Stress urinary incontinence (SUI) is the accidental leakage of urine associated with physical activities such as running, jumping or lifting, or with sneezing and coughing. Worldwide, SUI is a highly prevalent condition, both in young and elderly women, and is a condition fraught with social isolation, loss of self-esteem and significant financial burden. Most women with SUI assume that it is an inevitable part of aging and "suffer in silence", relying on absorbent pads or lifestyle changes to cope with their condition. Read More

Synergistic non-surgical management of pelvic floor dysfunction: second report.

Int Urogynecol J Pelvic Floor Dysfunct 2004 Mar-Apr;15(2):106-10; discussion 110. Epub 2004 Feb 3.

Kvinno Centre, Suite 14 ASurgicentre, 38 Meadowvale Ave, 6151, South Perth, WA, Australia.

The normal pelvic floor functions as a balanced synergistic system composed of muscle, connective tissue (CT), and nerve components, with CT being the most vulnerable. The aim was to address a wide range of pelvic floor dysfunctions by strengthening all possible components of the system with minimal time loss, weaving every element of treatment seamlessly into a daily routine. The study group consisted of patients from a tertiary referral pelvic floor clinic who, after testing, opted for nonsurgical treatment of their problem. Read More

Surgical management of stress urinary incontinence: consideration for an algorithmic approach.

Curr Womens Health Rep 2002 Aug;2(4):291-7

Division of Urogynecology, David Grant Medical Center, 101 Bodin Circle, Travis Air Force Base, CA 94535, USA.

Stress urinary incontinence is defined as the symptomatic loss of urine related to increases in intra-abdominal pressure. A variety of nonsurgical therapies with varying degrees of effectiveness and patient acceptance are available. If nonsurgical therapies fail, then multiple surgical options exist, including retropubic urethropexy, bulking agents, pubovaginal slings, and sling variants. Read More

Use of a urethral occlusion device for treatment of incontinence in a patient with heterotopic urinary diversion.

Tech Urol 2001 Sep;7(3):246-8

Department of Surgery, Medical College of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, USA.

Incontinence is a frequent complication of continent cutaneous urinary diversion that usually requires surgical intervention for correction. We report a novel nonsurgical therapy for reservoir incontinence in a woman who underwent anterior pelvic exenteration with formation of an Indiana pouch urinary diversion for treatment of adenocarcinoma of the urethra. When she subsequently developed urinary incontinence that was only partially responsive to anticholinergic therapy, stomal continence was restored by using a disposable urethral occlusion device.

Prognostic factors for long-term maintenance of urinary continence in patients with incontinence managed by diapers or indwelling catheters.

Eur Urol 2000 Mar;37(3):318-24

Department of Urology, Kouga Public Hospital, Shiga, Japan.

Objective: We examined the prognostic factors for longterm maintenance of continence following nonsurgical treatments in hospitalized patients with urinary incontinence.

Methods: 313 inpatients (average age: 64 years) in whom urinary incontinence had originally been managed with diapers (n = 158) or indwelling Foley catheters (n = 155) first received nonsurgical rehabilitative treatments. The patients who became continent with these treatments were then evaluated for being either continuously continent or recurrently incontinent during the 5-year follow-up period after discharge from hospital.
