Risk factors for severe hemorrhagic cystitis following BMT. (1/503)

Hemorrhagic cystitis (HC) is a common toxicity of preparative regimens for bone marrow transplantation (BMT). Severe HC often requires prolonged and expensive hospitalization, and occasionally can result in death. To investigate the risk factors for severe HC, we conducted a retrospective study among 1908 patients who received BMTs at the University of Minnesota during 1974 to 1993. A previous report from our institution reported on 977 of these patients. We identified all patients with genitourinary complication within 100 days post-BMT from the BMT database. Medical charts for these patients were reviewed to determine whether the patient had HC and also the grade of HC. A total of 208 HC cases were identified during the study period. Of them, 92 patients had severe HC, an incidence of 5% (95% CI = 4-6%). We found that grade II-IV graft-versus-host disease (RR = 2.56; 95% CI = 1.43-4.56), use of busulfan (RR = 2.69; 95% CI = 1.35-5.35), and age at transplant (RR = 2.20; 95% CI = 1.27-3.81, for age of 10-30 compared to age of 0-9) were related to an increased risk of HC. In contrast, transplant year was inversely associated with the risk of HC (trend test, P < 0.01). We did not find any significant difference in HC with the use of prophylactic Mesna.  (+info)

Adenovirus infection after pediatric bone marrow transplantation. (2/503)

Retrospective analysis of 206 patients undergoing 215 consecutive bone marrow transplants (BMT) at St Jude Children's Research Hospital between November 1990 and December 1994 identified 6% (seven male, six female) with adenovirus infection. The affected patients had a median age of 7.9 years (range 3-24 years) at time of transplantation. Although transplants were performed for hematologic malignancies, solid tumors or nonmalignant conditions, only patients with hematologic malignancies had adenoviral infections. Adenovirus was first detected at a median of 54 days (range -4 to +333) after BMT. Adenovirus developed in eight of 69 (11.6%) patients receiving grafts from matched unrelated or mismatched related donors, in four of 52 (7.7%) receiving grafts from HLA-matched siblings, and in one of 93 (1.1%) receiving autografts. The most common manifestation of adenovirus infection was hemorrhagic cystitis, followed by gastroenteritis, pneumonitis and liver failure. The incidence of adenovirus infection in pediatric BMT patients at our institution is similar to that reported in adult patients. Using univariate analysis, use of total body irradiation and type of bone marrow graft were significant risk factors for adenovirus infection. Only use of total body irradiation remained as a factor on multiple logistic regression analysis.  (+info)

Urinary tract infections in adults. (3/503)

Urinary tract infections remain a significant cause of morbidity in all age groups. Recent studies have helped to better define the population groups at risk for these infections, as well as the most cost-effective management strategies. Initially, a urinary tract infection should be categorized as complicated or uncomplicated. Further categorization of the infection by clinical syndrome and by host (i.e., acute cystitis in young women, acute pyelonephritis, catheter-related infection, infection in men, asymptomatic bacteriuria in the elderly) helps the physician determine the appropriate diagnostic and management strategies. Uncomplicated urinary tract infections are caused by a predictable group of susceptible organisms. These infections can be empirically treated without the need for urine cultures. The most effective therapy for an uncomplicated infection is a three-day course of trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole. Complicated infections are diagnosed by quantitative urine cultures and require a more prolonged course of therapy. Asymptomatic bacteriuria rarely requires treatment and is not associated with increased morbidity in elderly patients.  (+info)

Increased risk of chronic graft-versus-host disease, obstructive bronchiolitis, and alopecia with busulfan versus total body irradiation: long-term results of a randomized trial in allogeneic marrow recipients with leukemia. Nordic Bone Marrow Transplantation Group. (4/503)

Leukemic patients receiving marrow from HLA-identical sibling donors were randomized to treatment with either busulfan 16 mg/kg (n = 88) or total body irradiation ([TBI] n = 79) in addition to cyclophosphamide 120 mg/kg. The patients were observed for a period of 5 to 9 years. Busulfan-treated patients had an increased risk of veno-occlusive disease (VOD) of the liver (12% v 1%, P =.01) and hemorrhagic cystitis (32% v 10%, P =.003). Acute graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) was similar in the two groups, but the 7-year cumulative incidence of chronic GVHD was 59% in the busulfan-treated group versus 47% in the TBI group (P =.05). Death from GVHD was more common in the busulfan group (22% v 3%, P <.001). Obstructive bronchiolitis occurred in 26% of the busulfan patients but in only 5% of the TBI patients (P <.01). Complete alopecia developed in 8 busulfan patients and partial alopecia in 17, versus five with partial alopecia in the TBI group (P <.001). Cataracts occurred in 5 busulfan-treated patients and 16 TBI patients (P =.02). The incidence of relapse after 7 years was 29% in both groups. Seven-year transplant-related mortality (TRM) in patients with early disease was 21% in the busulfan group and 12% in the TBI group. In patients with more advanced disease, the corresponding figures were 64% and 22%, respectively (P =.004). Leukemia-free survival (LFS) in patients with early disease was 68% in busulfan-treated patients and 66% in TBI patients. However, 7-year LFS in patients with more advanced disease was 17% in the busulfan group versus 49% in the TBI group (P <.01). In patients with chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) in first chronic phase, 7-year LFS was 72% and 83% in the two groups, respectively.  (+info)

Evaluation of uroprotective efficacy of amifostine against cyclophosphamide induced hemorrhagic cystitis. (5/503)

The role of amifostine in the prevention of cyclophosphamide-induced hemorrhagic cystitis (HC) was evaluated in the rat model. Urinary bladders from control rats that received no drugs (group I) were compared with those from rats receiving cyclophosphamide alone at a dose of 150 mg/kg (group II), and two other groups receiving amifostine at 100 mg/kg (group III) and 200 mg/kg (group IV), 15 min prior to cyclophosphamide. Bladders were assessed macroscopically and histologically at 24 h and after 7 days. All the animals that received cyclophosphamide alone developed severe HC. On the basis of the scores of macroscopic and histologic changes, animals that received amifostine showed excellent uroprotection. Only 2/6 rats in group III and 1/6 rats in group IV developed mild HC at 24 h. None of the rats in either of these groups showed any evidence of HC at 7 days. It is concluded that amifostine protects the urothelium against cyclophosphamide-induced HC.  (+info)

A trial comparing low-dose, short-course ciprofloxacin and standard 7 day therapy with co-trimoxazole or nitrofurantoin in the treatment of uncomplicated urinary tract infection. (6/503)

The study was undertaken to compare the safety and efficacy of twice-daily ciprofloxacin for 3 days with standard 7 day therapy with either co-trimoxazole or nitrofurantoin in the treatment of women with acute, uncomplicated urinary tract infections (UTI). This multicentre, prospective, randomized, double-blind trial compared oral ciprofloxacin (100 mg bd) for 3 days with co-trimoxazole (160/800 mg bd) or nitrofurantoin (100 mg bd) for 7 days. Bacteriological and clinical evaluations were performed at study entry, during therapy and 4-10 days and 4-6 weeks after the completion of therapy. The primary efficacy parameter was eradication of the causative organism 4-10 days following treatment. Of 713 women enrolled and evaluable for safety, 521 were evaluable for efficacy (168 ciprofloxacin, 174 co-trimoxazole, 179 nitrofurantoin). Escherichia coli (83%) was the most frequently isolated pathogen in all treatment groups. Bacteriological eradication was reported in 88% of ciprofloxacin patients, 93% of co-trimoxazole patients and 86% of nitrofurantoin patients. At the 4-6 week follow-up, ciprofloxacin had statistically significantly higher eradication rates (91%) than co-trimoxazole (79%; 95% confidence limit (CL) = -20.6%, -3.9%) and nitrofurantoin (82%; 95% CL = -17.1%, -0.9%). Clinical resolution 4-10 days after therapy and at the 4-6 week follow-up was similar among the three treatment groups. The overall incidence of treatment-emergent adverse events was not significantly different (P = 0.093) among the three drug regimens, although co-trimoxazole was associated with a greater number of adverse events than ciprofloxacin (P < or = 0.05). Ciprofloxacin also caused fewer episodes of nausea than either of the other agents (P < or = 0.01).  (+info)

Short-course therapy of acute cystitis: a brief review of therapeutic strategies. (7/503)

Acute cystitis is one of the commonest medical problems encountered by primary care physicians. It affects more women than men (8:1), but the incidence among men is increasing. Uncomplicated cystitis by definition occurs in healthy patients with a normal urinary tract, whereas complicated cystitis implies a predisposing or underlying condition. A narrow range of aetiological agents is responsible for most uncomplicated cystitis in women (Escherichia coli in 80% of cases). Recently, however, pathogens usually associated with sexually transmitted disease have been implicated. In women with typical symptoms of acute uncomplicated cystitis, an abbreviated laboratory work-up followed by empirical therapy is recommended. Single-dose and 3 day regimens of co-trimoxazole and the quinolones are as effective as longer regimens and have a higher eradication rate than other commonly used antimicrobials. Relapse rates are slightly higher with single-dose therapy. With this success rate plus the reduced cost and improved patient compliance, these regimens have replaced traditional 5 to 14 day courses of treatment. With increasing resistance of the common urinary pathogens to amoxycillin and, now, co-trimoxazole, the quinolones are a logical choice for empirical therapy of uncomplicated urinary tract infections.  (+info)

Haemorrhagic cystitis: incidence and risk factors in a transplant population using hyperhydration. (8/503)

Haemorrhagic cystitis (HC) is the syndrome of haematuria and symptoms of lower urinary tract irritability in the absence of bacterial infection. We report a low incidence of HC (18.2%) in 681 haemopoietic stem cell transplant patients, using a prophylactic regimen of hyperhydration and forced diuresis. The incidence of grade 3-4 disease is 3.4%. There was a marked difference in incidence between allogeneic and autologous transplant populations, 24.2% vs. 3.5% (P<0.0005). Busulphan conditioning, acute GVHD, interstitial pneumonitis and use of methotrexate and cyclosporin immune suppression were associated with significantly increased incidence of HC in the allogeneic population. This may reflect the numerous factors that contribute to the greater immunosuppression and consequent increased risk for HC in allogeneic transplantation.  (+info)

Hemorrhagic cystitis or Haemorrhagic cystitis is defined by lower urinary tract symptoms that include dysuria, hematuria, and hemorrhage. The disease can occur as a complication of cyclophosphamide, ifosfamide and radiation therapy. In addition to hemorrhagic cystitis, temporary hematuria can also be seen in bladder infection or in children as a result of viral infection. Causes of hemorrhagic cystitis include chemotherapy (e.g. cyclophosphamide, Ifosfamide), radiation, or infection. Ifosfamide is the most common cause of hemorrhagic cystitis. Radiation-induced hemorrhagic cystitis develops in similar or smaller patient numbers when compared to cyclophosphamide-induced cases. Adenovirus (particularly serotypes 11 and 21 of subgroup B) is the most common cause of acute viral hemorrhagic cystitis in children, though it can result from BK virus as well. A chemical hemorrhagic cystitis can develop when vaginal products are inadvertently placed in the urethra. Gentian violet douching to treat ...

Emphysematous cystitis is a rare type of infection of the bladder wall by gas-forming bacteria or fungi. The most frequent offending organism is E. coli. Other gram negative bacteria, including Klebsiella and Proteus are also commonly isolated. Fungi, such as Candida, have also been reported as causative organisms. Citrobacter and Enterococci have also been found to cause Emphysematous cystitis (Mokabberi). Although it is a rare type of bladder infection, it is the most common type of all gas-forming bladder infections (Mccabe). The condition is characterized by the formation of air bubbles in and around the bladder wall. The gas found in the bladder consists of nitrogen, hydrogen, oxygen, and carbon dioxide. The disease most commonly affects elderly diabetic and immunocompromised patients (Sereno). The first case was identified in a post-mortem examination in 1888 (Nemati, Basra). Signs and symptoms of emphysematous cystitis include air in the bladder wall, altered mental status, severe ...
Results Twenty-five patients developed hemorrhagic cystitis. Pre-transplant BK viruria detected by quantitative PCR was positive in 96 patients. The one-year cumulative incidence of hemorrhagic cystitis was 16% in the PCR-positive group versus 9% in the PCR-negative group (P=0.1). The use of umbilical cord blood or a haploidentical donor was the only significant predictor of the incidence of hemorrhagic cystitis on univariate analysis. There was also a trend for a higher incidence after myeloablative conditioning. Multivariate analysis showed that patients who had a positive PCR pre-transplant and received haploidentical or cord blood grafts with myeloablative conditioning had a significantly higher risk of developing hemorrhagic cystitis (58%) than all other recipients (7%, P,0.001). ...
While bacterial cystitis is common among other species, cats usually develop cystitis for other reasons. Antibiotic treatment should be reserved for cats who have been examined and tested thoroughly where bacterial infection is indeed present. Many tests may need to be run in order to determine the cause of cystitis in cats. When other test results are unable to be determined, x-rays may need to be performed. X-rays will most often be normal in the case of bacterial infection. Severe cases, however, may cause a noticeable thickening of the wall of the bladder. Bladder walls will thicken during as a result of bladder cancer as well, so analysis should also be performed on the sediment contained in a urine sample. If the presence of bacteria is revealed, or where bacteria is assumed present, a bacterial culture will be performed to determine the origin and type of infection, such as e. coli, staph, strep or proteus. Its important for appropriate antibiotics to be selected based upon this result, ...
Hemorrhagic cystitis - an inflammatory disease of the bladder with a complex etiology. The frequency of this pathology has increased substantially due to the increase in the number of patients undergoing radiation therapy for malignant neoplasms of the pelvic organs. The development of rational treatment of hemorrhagic cystitis is a difficult problem. Given the pathogenetic basis of disease, it is assumed that the optimal methods of treatment should be aimed at the regeneration of glycosaminoglycan mucosal layer of the bladder. The article presents the results of a study of effectiveness of intravesical instillation of hyaluronic acid in the treatment of hemorrhagic cystitis. ...

Cystitis tends to be a mild infection, although some patients have severe dysuria. Studies of college women with UTI have demonstrated that, on average, symptoms last several days and may be severe for a day, causing patients to miss school or work. Placebo controlled trials of women with acute uncomplicated cystitis have shown that 25-42% of women who receive placebo will have resolution of their symptoms within a few days, and it is uncommon that such patients progress to more serious infection, such as pyelonephritis. Thus, the primary goal of treatment in such women is to ameliorate symptoms rather than to prevent complications. Cystitis in a pregnant woman is an exception in that UTI in pregnancy has been associated with progression to pyelonephritis and adverse outcomes of the pregnancy.. Similar placebo studies of men with cystitis, or catheterized men or women with cystitis, have not been performed. However, asymptomatic bacteriuria in the catheterized patient rarely progresses to ...

Although harmless bacteria exist in your bowel to help your body digest food, the bacteria can enter your urinary tract where they multiply and inflame the tissue, leading to an infection.. There can be various causes of cystitis. One of the most common ways that cystitis occurs is when uropathogenic bacteria from your bowel reaches your bladder by moving from the opening of your bowel (anus) into the tube that carries urine from your bladder (urethra) to outside your body.. Women are at higher risk for cystitis than men as the female anatomy makes it more likely for bacteria to spread from bowel to urinary tract. This is because the urethra and anus are shorter and closer together. You can also be at increased risk for cystitis if youre sexually active, pregnant or diabetic, have recently had a bladder catheter or urological disease. Women who had gone through menopause are also at a higher risk for cystitis. ...

I am 23 years old and every time I have sex I suffer cystitis a couple of days after. I have tried absolutely everything. VIT C, cranberry juice, urinating straight after intercourse, etc. I also went to the doctor who prescribed me trimethoprim 200ml to take every day which also has not helped. Because of our jobs, we travel all over the world and I dont get the chance to visit a doctor every time I get it. I therefore resorted to taking over the counter antibiotics (eg. macrodantina 100mg & 50 mg) on a daily basis but after one year of trying different ones, they stop working. Its got to a point now were I am scared to have sex for the pain is unbearable with the cystitis that comes afterwards. Is there any operation that would help me as I think I need something more drastic now? I feel that I cant cope with this anymore. Any help would be great, thank you so much ...

Your dog may hide the symptoms of an uncomfortable urinary infection. Cystitis, which is often caused by a urinary infection, can indicate a larger problem.
The term UTI encompasses different infections. These include asymptomatic bacteriuria, acute uncomplicated cystitis, recurrent cystitis, complicated UTI, catheter-associated asymptomatic bacteriuria, catheter-associated UTI, prostatitis, and pyelonephritis. 1 There are two broad classifications: uncomplicated and complicated.. Uncomplicated UTIs refer to infections occurring in individuals with normal urinary tracts; meaning they have no structural or neurological issues, such as neurogenic bladder. These are differentiated into lower (bladder and urethra) and upper (ureters and kidneys) urinary tract infections; cystitis and pyelonephritis respectively. 2 Typical symptoms of cystitis include dysuria, urinary frequency and urgency, suprapubic pain, and hematuria. Symptoms of pyelonephritis include fever, chills, flank pain, costovertebral angle tenderness, and nausea/vomiting. 3. Risk factors of uncomplicated UTIs include being female (proximity of urethral opening to anus), frequent sexual ...

Bladder infection is known by its medical term as cystitis. It is one of the most common diseases affecting about six million women each day and ranks second as the common reason for patient visits. Also known as urinary tract infection, this occurs whenever E.coli bacteria are present in the urinary tract passing through the urethra. Women are most likely to have the disease than men because of the structure of their urinary system and the proximity of the rectum to the urethra.. Symptoms of bladder infection may range from mild to severe and some even disappear without need of a treatment. Most of the time, symptoms of bladder infection may be similar to having kidney problems.. Primarily though, symptoms of bladder infection usually relate to the urinary function. Nevertheless, here is a closer look at the different symptoms of bladder infection among women.. ...
The present study demonstrates the TRPA1 was expressed in both bladder and DRG (L6-S1) and had a pronounced upregulation in DRG but more slight in mucosa in rat cystitis. The blockade of TRPA1 via intrathecal administration decreased afferent nerve activities and consequently attenuated detrusor overactivity markly. More recently, Tomonori et al. have shown that TRPA1 channel could improve afferent nerve activities of the rat bladder through both Aδ- and C-fibers pathway [16]. TRPA1 channels have been conducted in multiple-sensation modalities at present including mechanical, nociceptive, and thermal sensation in mammal [17-19].. However, the function of TRPA1 as nociceptor in the DRG innervating bladder is really quite controversial and further research is needed. We suppose the activation of TRPA1 receptors in DRG may lead to hyperalgesia, playing a role in enhanced impulse conduction and detrusor overactivity. We observed hematuria, severe submucosal edema, hemorrhage, ulceration, congestion ...
Short-term use of the antibiotic cefpodoxime for the treatment of women with uncomplicated cystitis (bladder infection) did not meet criteria for noninferiority for achieving clinical cure compared with ciprofloxacin, a drug in the fluoroquinolone class of antibiotics for which there have been concerns about overuse and a resulting increase in resistance rates, according to a study in the February 8 issue of JAMA. The criteria for noninferiority was if the efficacy of cefpodoxime had been shown to be within a pre-specified margin of 10 percent of the efficacy of ciprofloxacin.. Fluoroquinolones have high rates of efficacy and minimal adverse drug reactions when used in a 3-day regimen as recommended to treat uncomplicated cystitis. However, increasing rates of antimicrobial resistance among fluoroquinolones have been reported. To prevent further emergence of fluoroquinolone resistance, there are calls for restricting fluoroquinolones to those specific instances of uncomplicated cystitis when ...

N2 - Vaginal colonization with Escherichia coli is an integral step in the development of acute cystitis, and persistent vaginal coliform colonization may also be a predisposing step to recurrent urinary tract infections. For this reason, we evaluated antibiotic concentrations in the vaginal fluid, serum, and urine and the vaginal colonization by E. coli of 56 women receiving either ofloxacin (200 mg orally twice a day) or trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole (TMP-SMX) (160/800 mg orally twice a day) for the treatment of acute cystitis. Ofloxacin and trimethoprim both penetrated into vaginal fluid to a considerably greater extent than sulfamethoxazole. ...
Emphysematous cystitis (EC) is the presence of intramural gas, with or without luminal gas, within the bladder as a result of a primary infection of the lower urinary tract with a gas-producing organism. It is a well-recognised complication of urinary tract infections involving Escherichia coli in diabetic patients. Clinical subcutaneous emphysema is a rare complication of EC that appears to have poor prognosis. Only careful clinical judgement, and a high degree of suspicion, will lead to its early diagnosis and treatment. Here, we report a case of subcutaneous emphysema due to EC based on a clinical diagnosis confirmed using computed tomography (CT).
Interstitial Cystitis is a chronic inflammation of the bladder wall. Its cause is unknown and so is its cure. Common cystitis is a urinary tract infection caused by bacteria and is usually successfully treated with antibiotics. Unlike common cystitis, Interstitial Cystitis is believed not to be caused by bacteria, and it does not respond to conventional antibiotic therapy. Interstitial Cystitis can affect people of any age, race or sex. According to the RAND epidemiological study released in Spring 2009, an estimated 3 to 6 million women in the USA suffer from symptoms.

In November 2002, the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) issued a request for application (RFA: DK-03-010) for Basic Research in Interstitial Cystitis due. The RFA invited applications for basic cellular, molecular, and genetic research and translational studies focused on understanding the causes and pathogenesis of interstitial cystitis (IC). New and established investigators from related research areas were invited to apply their knowledge to the study of IC. Related research areas include, but are not limited to, inflammation, epithelial biology, cellular biology, molecular genetics, neuropathology and neurophysiology, the biology and physiology of pain, diagnostic radiology and nuclear medicine, genomics, proteomics, the development of genetic animal models, and autoimmunity. Another highly relevant aim of the RFA was the development of productive research collaborations between investigators with diverse scientific backgrounds. Interstitial Cystitis ...
Interstitial Cystitis (IC) is a condition that causes pain or discomfort in the bladder and the surrounding pelvic region. The symptoms are different for each person and can change on a case to case basis. Pain may worsen as the bladder fills or is emptied. The pain typically can be worse for women, during menstruation, but can also affect women who have had hysterectomies.. Due to the varying nature of symptoms and severity, most researchers in the field of study, believe that interstitial cystitis is several diseases. Scientists have recently started using the term bladder pain syndrome (BPS) or painful bladder syndrome (PBS) to describe painful urinary symptoms that do not meet all of the definitions of interstitial cystitis.. ...
By Emily Gammell. In this blog post, guest blogger Emily Gammell shares her story of living with Interstitial Cystitis, more commonly known as Painful Bladder Syndrome, which is a painful chronic condition affecting the bladder. September is Interstitial Cystitis Awareness Month and Emily is doing her part to raise awareness of this often undiagnosed and misdiagnosed condition.. In May 2018 I was diagnosed with Interstitial Cystitis (IC) at the age of 29. Shortly after being diagnosed, I described IC as a life sentence. Some people were confused by that statement because I did not look sick. I looked healthy and normal. But on that day in May I felt like Id been run over repeatedly. I felt relief accompanied with confusion and fear. Relief because I had been validated; my pain was real. It wasnt only in my head as my previous gynecologist had insisted. I was 27 years young when I was basically told I was crazy while I was living with what looked like post-menopause even though I had never ...
Urinary tract infections are very common and Interstitial Cystitis repeated in large numbers.

Rarely occur Interstitial Cystitis local septic reactions or even fatal, endotoxemia, which is almost always followed by an obstruction or disturbance immunity host (immunosuppression, diabetes ...
Cystitis (sis-TI-tis) is the medical term for inflammation of the bladder. Most of the time, the inflammation is caused by a bacterial infection, and its called a urinary tract infection (UTI). A bladder infection can be painful and annoying, and it can become a serious health problem if the infection spreads to your kidneys. Less commonly, cystitis may occur as a reaction to certain drugs, radiation therapy or potential irritants, such as feminine hygiene spray, spermicidal jellies or long-term use of a catheter. Cystitis may also occur as a complication of another illness. The usual treatment for bacterial cystitis is antibiotics. Treatment for other types of cystitis depends on the underlying cause.. Pyelonephritis results when a UTI progresses to involve the upper urinary system (the kidneys and ureters). The kidneys filter the blood to produce urine. Two tubes called the ureters carry urine from the kidneys down to the bladder. Urine travels from the bladder out of the body through the ...
Interstitial cystitis (IC) is a chronic inflammation of the urinary bladder. There are four types of treatment for interstitial cystitis: biophysical techniques, behavioral changes, local medication, and instillation of medication directly into the bladder via a catheter. Surgery is reserved as a treatment of last resort. Augmentation cystoplasty and urinary diversion are used to treat IC cases that do not respond to other treatments.

Fibromyalgia is a condition that causes musculoskeletal pain. There are many things that can cause this condition. For instance, it may be the result of an infection. Surgery and physical trauma are other common triggers for the disease. Doctors believe that the condition makes the brain more receptive to pain, thus causing the disability that patients feel on a daily basis. Studies have shown that fibromyalgia may actually cause interstitial cystitis.. Both interstitial cystitis and fibromyalgia typically develop in a group of three that includes chronic fatigue syndrome. It is unclear why they occur in this triad, though there are multiple ongoing studies that aim to answer just that. If you have fibromyalgia then maintaining your bladder health would be wise to prevent the development of interstitial cystitis. After all, while the exact link and cause are yet to be established, its better to be safe now than sorry later on.. ...

Background & Aims: Urinary tract infection (UTI) is one of the most frequently acquired bacterial infections caused by a large genetically heterogeneous group of Escherichia coli which are called uropathogenic E. coli (UPEC). Cystitis and pyelonephritis are two most common symptoms seen in patients with UTI. The genetic diversity of this organism has hampered the identification of UTI strains and it is unclear whether all UPEC isolates are capable of causing both cystitis and pyelonephritis. Therefore, Careful selection of appropriate genotyping methods is mandatory. The most popular method is Pulsed Field Gel Electrophoresis (PFGE) that is used in the present study to evaluate the genetic patterns of UPEC. Methods: In this cross-sectional study a total of 90 E. coli strains consisting of 48 isolates causing pyelonephritis and 42 isolates causing cystitis in children were analyzed by PFGE and their corresponding patterns were compared. Results: Sixty six PFGE profiles were obtained from the genome of E.
Interstitial cystitis is a form of cystitis that causes chronic pelvic pain, urinary urgency, urinary frequency and painful sex. It is commonly found in patients with other chronic pain conditions like irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), endometriosis and vulvodynia (painful vulva) and therefore can easily be missed. Not all symptoms are present in every patient though. Symptoms are commonly confused with recurrent bladder infections, and many people get unnecessarily treated with antibiotics, which may interfere with their immune system and lead to real bladder infections. This syndrome is nowadays called painful bladder syndrome or bladder pain syndrome (BPS), since its causes are not well known. Unfortunately, its cure is not well known either, since it seems to be triggered and related to many different things. It occurs in men and women, though women are much more prone to the disease. A thorough evaluation by a urogynecologist can help discern the differences in symptoms you may have. This ...
The first sign you will usually notice is your cat visiting the litter tray more frequently. When using a tray they may only pass small amounts of urine and sometimes you will see blood. Occasionally your cat will strain as if trying to pass urine but nothing comes out. In these cases cystitis may be mistaken for constipation or a blockage in the urinary system. Some cats with cystitis seem restless and unsettled and others will cry when straining to urinate.. ...
This project is a systematic, national study of incident IC cases and controls matched by age and gender. By telephone interview and medical record review, we compare exposures of cases and controls seeking significant differences which may be risk factors for IC. This cohort of incident IC cases will initiate a natural history study of the disease.. Specific Aim 1. To test the hypothesis that certain features that precede onset of IC symptoms, e.g., bacterial cystitis, distinguish IC cases from controls matched for age and gender, and may be risk factors for the disease.. Specific Aim 2. To test the hypotheses that patients with IC have higher prevalences of certain non bladder syndromes, e.g., irritable bowel syndrome, than do controls matched for age and gender..

The presentations of urinary bladder toxicity are dysuria (painful urination), hemorrhagic cystitis (blood in the urine with painful voiding due to diffuse inflammation of the urinary bladder) and increased urinary frequency. It occurs in 5% to 10% of patients and may starts within 24 hours of drug therapy or may be delayed for up to several weeks. Bladder toxicity can occur both in oral and intravenous therapy but less with intravenous therapy. After intake of cyclophosphamide, it is broken down into the phosphoramide mustard and acrolein. The byproduct acrolein causes urinary bladder injury and produces toxicity. Among bladder toxicity, hemorrhagic cystitis is the more dangerous side effect. When this drug is taken for one to several years in doses of 2 mg/kg/day, the incidence of hemorrhagic cystitis is at least 30%. To reduce the risk of bladder toxicity, all patients should intake cyclophosphamide in the morning with a large amount of liquid throughout the day and void every 2 hours. It can ...
In a randomised, double blind, long term, crossover study 1 g twice daily of methenamine hippurate was compared with placebo for its preventive effect on recurrent attacks of acute cystitis. Methenamine hippurate and placebo were interchanged every six months for two years. During one of the years patients took 250 ml extra fluid every morning and evening. Out of 21 enrolled patients, 14 completed the first year and 13 both years of treatment, which permitted the evaluation of 27 patient years. There were 52 episodes of acute cystitis caused by reinfection: 41 occurred during placebo treatment and only 11 during the methenamine hippurate regimen (p less than 0.01). Extra fluid intake did not reduce the incidence of acute cystitis, nor did it reduce the effect of methenamine hippurate. Methenamine hippurate is an effective prophylactic agent against recurrent acute cystitis and has the advantage of not inducing cross resistance to conventional antibiotics. ...

Interstitial cystitis (IC) is complex, chronic disorder characterized by an inflamed or irritated bladder wall. It can lead to scarring and stiffening of the bladder, decreased bladder capacity, and glomerulations (pinpoint bleeding). IC may also be known as painful bladder syndrome or frequency-urgency-dysuria syndrome.
Interstitial cystitis also known as painful bladder syndrome is a condition in which the bladder causes intense pain. The bladder and the surrounding pelvic

PURPOSE We determined whether intravesical potassium absorption in normal bladders correlates with increased sensory urgency, and corroborated the hypothesis that mucus is important in the regulation of epithelial permeability. We compared sensory nerve provocative ability of sodium versus potassium, and determined whether intravesical potassium sensitivity discriminates patients with interstitial cystitis from normal subjects and those with other sensory disorders of the bladder. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 231 patients with interstitial cystitis and 41 normal subjects underwent intravesical challenge with 40 ml. water and then 40 ml. of 40 mEq./100 ml. potassium chloride. Subjective responses of urgency or pain stimulation were recorded on a scale of 0 to 5. In 19 normal subjects potassium absorption was measured at baseline, after injury of the bladder mucus with protamine, after heparin treatment to reverse mucus damage and then for a final time. These subjects simultaneously recorded the
Also referred to as bladder pain syndrome, interstitial cystitis (IC) is a chronic, long-lasting condition that causes painful urinary symptoms. According to recent research from the Interstitial Cystitis Association, the condition is much more prevalent than originally thought.. Research varies widely, but an estimated 3 to 8 million women (3-6%) in the United States may have IC. The condition also affects roughly 1 to 4 million men, although this is a conservative estimate as the condition is more likely to be mistaken for other disorders in men.. Men, women and children of any age or race can develop IC at any point during their life though many adults report symptoms dating back to childhood.. ...
In the specific case where your child regularly has bladder infections and/or vesico-ureteral reflux, it is sometimes necessary to take a low daily dose of antibiotics preventively, to avoid the recurrence of the bladder infections. This is called antibiotic maintenance treatment.. An untreated bladder infection can spread to the ureters and kidneys. This can cause kidney pelitis or sepsis (blood poisoning). These are quite serious diseases because they can damage the kidneys, sometimes irreversibly. Timely treatment of a bladder infection can prevent this.. Usually antibiotic treatment is sufficient. In the event of an issue with constipation, this must be addressed. Additional surgical intervention is reserved for children who have been diagnosed with urological anatomical abnormalities (such as reflux, urethral valves or ureter obstruction).. ...
