Determination of hydroxytyrosol and tyrosol in human urine after intake of extra virgin olive oil produced with an ultrasounds-based technology.

J Pharm Biomed Anal 2021 Jun 10;203:114204. Epub 2021 Jun 10.

Department of Chemistry, University of Bari "Aldo Moro", 70126, Bari, Italy.

How I Do It: PureWick female external catheter: a non-invasive urine management system for incontinent women.

Can J Urol 2021 Jun;28(3):10669-10672

Department of Urology, Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA.

Catheter associated urinary tract infections (CAUTIs) are common hospital-acquired infections and remain a significant medical and financial challenge to the healthcare system. Despite this risk, incontinent women may require prolonged catheterization to accurately monitor urine output and prevent skin breakdown. The PureWick Female External Urinary Catheter is a promising non-invasive urine collection system for use in incontinent women that may help reduce CAUTI rates, maintain skin integrity, accurately quantify urine output, and avoid extra healthcare costs.

Is urinary incontinence associated with vulval lichen sclerosus in females? A cross-sectional study.

Br J Dermatol 2021 Jun 15. Epub 2021 Jun 15.

Centre of Evidence Based Dermatology, School of Medicine, University of Nottingham, Nottingham, UK.

Increasing evidence suggests the pathogenesis of male genital lichen sclerosus (LS) is driven by chronic, occluded exposure of susceptible epithelium to the irritant effect of urine (1, 2). It is not clear how this can be extrapolated to females, however, the typical 'figure of eight' distribution seen in female genital LS suggests that urine could be implicated. This has not yet been robustly investigated. Read More

[Early Diagnosis of Spinal Dural Arteriovenous Fistula].

Brain Nerve 2021 Jun;73(6):685-696

Department of Neurology, Anjo Kosei Hospital.

Spinal dural arteriovenous fistulas (SDAVF) are rare and most commonly affect men aged >50 years. Patients with SDAVF develop an abnormal vascular dural shunt between the dural branch of a segmental artery and a subdural radicular vein that drains the perimedullary venous system, leading to venous hypertension and secondary congestive myelopathy. Most SDAVFs are located in the thoracolumbar region, and usually patients present with slowly progressive paraparesis and urinary disturbances. Read More
