Összefoglaló. Az alsó húgyutak fő funkciója a vizelet tárolása és ürítése, amely működések zavara az úgynevezett alsó húgyúti tünetegyüttes kialakulásához vezet, ami a kiváltó októl függően vizeletürítési zavarral és vizeletretencióval is járhat. Kezeletlen esetekben a felső húgyutak károsodása következik be a magas hólyagnyomás által kiváltott vesicoureteralis reflux következtében, amely ureter- és veseüregrendszeri tágulat kialakulására, illetve fertőzésekre és kőképződésre hajlamosít.

Is there a role for oxidative stress and mitochondrial dysfunction in age-associated bladder disorders?

Lori A Birder

Ci Ji Yi Xue Za Zhi 2020 Jul-Sep;32(3):223-226. Epub 2020 Jan 3.

Department of Medicine, Renal Electrolyte Division, Pittsburgh, PA, USA.

Millions of individuals worldwide are affected by age-related lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTSs), including impaired detrusor contractility, detrusor overactivity, decreased bladder sensation, as well as increased bladder capacity often resulting in incomplete bladder emptying. Yet, the underlying factors that contribute to these symptoms are not known and there are few therapies to treat these disorders. Because of the complex pathophysiology, a number of animal models have been studied over the years to better understand mechanisms underlying patient symptoms. Read More

Restricted . unrestricted oral intake in high output end-jejunostomy patients referred to reconstructive surgery.

Br J Nutr 2021 May 2;125(10):1125-1131. Epub 2020 Sep 2.

Norwich Medical School, University of East Anglia, Norwich Research Park, Norwich NR4 7UQ, UK.

The major complication of end jejunostomy is excessive fluid and electrolyte loss through the stoma, leading to hypovolaemia and dyselectrolytaemia within days and malnutrition within weeks. The aim was to compare the results of two nutritional approaches: unrestricted and restricted oral intake in patients with end jejunostomy commencing home parenteral nutrition (HPN) in terms of liver and renal biochemical markers and time to reconstructive bowel surgery with correlation to stoma output. Twenty patients with stabilised high output end-jejunostomy were divided into two groups. Read More
