Hematuria: an unusual presentation for mucocele of the appendix. Case report and review of the literature. (1/259)

Mucocele of the appendix is a nonspecific term that is used to describe an appendix abnormally distended with mucus. This may be the result of either neoplastic or non-neopleastic causes and may present like most appendiceal pathology with either mild abdominal pain or life-threatening peritonitis. Urologic manifestations of mucocele of the appendix have rarely been reported. Laparoscopy can be used as a diagnostic tool in equivocal cases. Conversion to laparotomy may be indicated if there is a special concern for the ability to remove the appendix intact or if more extensive resection is warranted, as in malignancy. We here report our experience with a woman presenting with hematuria whose ultimate diagnosis was mucocele of the appendix, and we review the appropriate literature. This case highlights the mucocele as a consideration in the differential diagnosis of appendiceal pathology and serves to remind the surgeon of the importance for careful intact removal of the diseased appendix.  (+info)

The value of intra-operative cystoscopy at the time of laparoscopic hysterectomy. (2/259)

The aim of this study was to determine the usefulness of routine intra-operative cystoscopy in documenting ureteral injury during total laparoscopic hysterectomy with vault suspension and to document the incidence of this complication in a large series. The charts of 118 patients who underwent laparoscopic hysterectomy with vault suspension from January 1992 to January 1998 were retrospectively reviewed. The patients underwent intra-operative cystoscopic evaluation to verify ureteral permeability and bladder integrity. Intra-operative ureteral obstruction occurred in four patients (3.4%). All complications were immediately fixed and there were no postoperative ureteral problems. No late ureteral complications were observed. Intra-operative cystoscopy allows for early recognition and treatment of obstructive ureteral injuries and may reduce the rate of late postoperative complications during advanced laparoscopic procedures.  (+info)

Intrathecal bupivacaine in humans: influence of volume and baricity of solutions. (3/259)

BACKGROUND: The effects of volume and baricity of spinal bupivacaine on block onset, height, duration, and hemodynamics were studied. METHODS: Ninety patients undergoing endoscopic urologic procedures were randomized to receive 10 mg of intrathecal bupivacaine at L2-L3 level in sitting position. In the operating room, commercial products were diluted as needed with NaCl 0.9% to obtain isobaric solutions (density, 1.005-1.008) or with NaC 10.9% and glucose 30% to obtain hyperbaric solutions (density, 1.031-1.037) of 2, 5, or 10 ml (six groups of 15 patients each). Three minutes after spinal injection the patients were placed in lithotomy position. Sensory blockade was assessed using pinprick and cold sensation tests, and motor blockade was assessed using a four-point scale. RESULTS: Onset times to maximal cephalad spread of spinal blockade were similar with isobaric and hyperbaric solutions. A greater maximal cephalad spread of anesthesia was obtained with diluted isobaric bupivacaine but was not associated with more hypotension. Volume had no effect on cephalad extent of anesthesia with hyperbaric bupivacaine. Times for regression of anesthesia to L2 and offset of motor block were longer with isobaric than with hyperbaric solutions of bupivacaine. The intensity of motor blockade was decreased with diluted hyperbaric bupivacaine. No patient reported back pain. CONCLUSION: In this study, volume had no significant influence on either cephalad spread or duration of sensory blockade for either isobaric or hyperbaric bupivacaine. Time for offset of anesthesia was shorter with hyperbaric bupivacaine compared with isobaric solutions.  (+info)

Early fetal megacystis between 11 and 15 weeks of gestation. (4/259)

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the prognostic criteria of early fetal megacystis. DESIGN: A prospective, transvaginal ultrasound, cross-sectional study at 11-15 weeks of gestation at a tertiary referral fetal medicine unit. SUBJECTS AND METHODS: Sixteen pregnancies out of a total of 5240 were identified with early fetal megacystis. Fetal biometry, morphology, amniotic fluid, bladder size and volume were also evaluated. The karyotype was available in 15 cases. Vesicocentesis was performed in six fetuses and three had concomitant cystoscopies. RESULTS: In six fetuses, the megacystis was isolated. In the remaining ten, we detected associated hygroma (n = 5), nuchal translucency (n = 3), omphalocele (n = 1), mild pyelectasis (n = 1) and bilateral talipes (n = 1). In three cases the fetuses demonstrated renal hyperechogenicity with cysts, and in two cases oligohydramnios was found; four cases (25%) had chromosomal abnormalities; 47, XY + 13 (two cases), 47, XY + 18 and 47, XY + 21. Only one fetus from this study survived. In the remaining 13 cases, termination was proposed after counselling of the patients on the poor prognosis. The mean gestational age at termination was 15.5 +/- 2.4 weeks (range 12-20). Three fetal transabdominal cystoscopies did not allow us to view the valves; one urethral atresia was suspected, and confirmed postnatally. CONCLUSIONS: We found a high rate of associated malformations, especially intestinal malformations. The systematic evaluation of the intestinal enzymes in the amniotic fluid and urine samples might be an important aid in the diagnosis of multiple malformations, such as cloacal dysgenesis.  (+info)

Interstitial cystitis: a retrospective analysis of treatment with pentosan polysulfate and follow-up patient survey. (5/259)

To evaluate the efficacy and safety of pentosan polysulfate sodium (PPS) in relieving symptoms of interstitial cystitis, the authors retrospectively reviewed charts of 260 patients in whom interstitial cystitis had been diagnosed. Subsequently, they conducted a follow-up phone interview or mail survey of those patients who were treated with PPS to investigate changes in the patients' symptoms, adverse effects, and change in quality of life. The control group consisted of patients whose interstitial cystitis had been diagnosed at cystoscopy and had a duration of at least 1 year and who had taken at least one or more oral medications for their symptoms. The average length of treatment was 9.3 months among the 27 subjects on PPS therapy. The mean length of time that they had diagnosed interstitial cystitis was 35.63 months and 48.78 months for the PPS-treated and control groups, respectively, with no statistically significant difference. Changes in frequency, urgency, and pain were greater in the treatment group and statistically significant (P = .11, P = .49, and P = .004, respectively). No change occurred in the rate of nocturia in the PPS-treated group compared with that in the control group. Symptoms of both groups improved over time, but improvement was statistically significantly greater in the treatment group (P = .001) over the treatment interval. The most common side effect attributable to PPS was diarrhea in 15% of subjects. Pentosan proved to be an efficacious option for reducing the debilitating symptoms of interstitial cystitis.  (+info)

Endoscopic treatment of vesicoureteral reflux in children with glutaraldehyde cross-linked bovine dermal collagen. Short-term results. (6/259)

BACKGROUND: Endoscopic treatment using glutaraldehyde cross-linked (GAX) collagen was conducted on 4 children with bilateral primary vesicoureteral reflux (VUR)..... a 1-year-old boy and three 5- to 8-year-old girls $B!D (Ball having a history of repeated hospitalization for fever due to acute pyelonephritis, visiting as pediatric outpatients regularly and receiving antibiotics continuously. By international VUR classification, 4 ureters were grade 3, 2 grade 4, and 2 grade 5. METHODS: After nonallergy to GAX collagen was confirmed intracutaneously, a needle was used through a 9.5 Fr cystoscope channel to puncture bladder mucosa 4 to 5 mm from the affected ureteral orifice at 6 o'clock under general anesthesia; 1.1 to 1.9 ml of GAX collagen was injected immediately below affected orifices. RESULTS: Three months after surgery, voiding cystourethrography showed reflux had disappeared in 6 ureters, for a short-term success rate of 75%. VUR in the Remaining 2 ureters improved from grade 3 to 1 and from grade 5 to 4. No postoperative urinary tract infection occurred and antibiotics were stopped. CONCLUSION: Since GAX collagen is less viscous than Teflon paste, it is easily injected into submucosa, does not form granuloma or migrate to other organs, and is noncarcinogenic. Endoscopic VUR treatment using GAX collagen is indicated when less invasion and shorter hospitalization are considered, although it requires general anesthesia, which itself involves some risk.  (+info)

Diseases causing end-stage renal failure in New South Wales. (7/259)

The nature of the original renal disease was determined in 403 consecutive cases of end-stage renal failure, in 317 of which the clinical diagnosis was corroborated by histological examination of the kidney. Five diseases accounted for 20 or more cases--glomerulonephritis (31% of the total), analgesic nephropathy (29%), primary vesicoureteral reflux (8%), essential hypertension (6%), and polycystic kidneys (5%). In only four cases did renal failure result from chronic pyelonephritis without a demonstrable primary cause. Greater use of micturating cystography and cystoscopy and routine urine testing for salicylate are advocated for earlier diagnosis of the major causes of "pyelonephritis". The incidence of end-stage renal failure in people aged 15-55 in New South Wales was estimated to be at least 34 new cases per million of total population each year.  (+info)

Malignant lymphoma of the urinary bladder: a clinicopathological study of 11 cases. (8/259)

AIM: To report the clinical and histological features and outcome of primary and secondary malignant lymphomas of the urinary bladder. METHODS: Eleven cases of malignant lymphoma of the urinary bladder were obtained from the registry of cases at St Bartholomews and the Royal London Hospitals. The lymphomas were classified on the basis of their morphology and immunophenotype, and the clinical records were reviewed. RESULTS: There were six primary lymphomas: three extranodal marginal zone lymphomas of mucosa associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) type and three diffuse large B cell lymphomas. Of the five secondary cases, four were diffuse large B cell lymphomas, one secondary to a systemic follicular follicle centre lymphoma, and one nodular sclerosis Hodgkins disease. Four patients with secondary lymphoma for whom follow up was available had died of disease within 13 months of diagnosis. Primary lymphomas followed a more indolent course. In one case, there was evidence of transformation from low grade MALT-type to diffuse large B cell lymphoma. The most common presenting symptom was haematuria. Cystoscopic appearances were of solid, sometimes necrotic tumours resembling transitional cell carcinoma, and in one case the tumours were multiple. These cases represented 0.2% of all bladder neoplasms. CONCLUSIONS: Diffuse large B cell lymphoma and MALT-type lymphoma are the most common primary malignant lymphomas of the bladder. Lymphoepithelial lesions in MALT-type lymphoma involve transitional epithelium, and their presence in high grade lymphoma suggests a primary origin owing to transformation of low grade MALT-type lymphoma. Primary and secondary diffuse large B cell lymphomas of the bladder are histologically similar, but the prognosis of the former is favourable.  (+info)

To evaluate fluorescence cystoscopy with hexaminolevulinate (HAL) in the early detection of dysplasia (DYS) and carcinoma in situ (CIS) in select high risk patients. We selected 30 consecutive bladder cancer patients at high risk for progression. After endoscopic resection, all patients received (a) induction BCG schedule when needed, and (b) white light and fluorescence cystoscopy after 3 months. HAL at doses of 85 mg (GE Healthcare, Buckinghamshire, United Kingdom) dissolved in 50 ml of solvent to obtain an 8 mmol/L solution was instilled intravesically with a 12 Fr catheter into an empty bladder and left for 90 minutes. The solution was freshly prepared immediately before instillation. Cystoscopy was performed within 120 minutes of bladder emptying. Standard and fluorescence cystoscopy was performed using a double light system (Combilight PDD light source 5133, Wolf, Germany) which allowed an inspection under both white and blue light. The overall incidence was 43.3% dysplasia, 23.3% CIS, and 13.3%
A previously completed pivotal clinical study PC B305/04 demonstrated reduced recurrence rates for patients with papillary bladder cancer who underwent Hexvix (Cysview) and white light cystoscopy and transurethral resection (TURB) of the bladder compared to patients who underwent white light cystoscopy and TURB alone.. The present study is intended to investigate whether the improved initial detection and resection of bladder cancer lesions in patients with non-muscle invasive bladder cancer with Hexvix (Cysview) fluorescence cystoscopy/TURB will also lead to a longer-term reduction in recurrences compared to standard white light cystoscopy/TURB.. No safety data was collected. ...
OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to assess the test performance and clinical effectiveness of photodynamic diagnosis (PDD) compared with white light cystoscopy (WLC) in people suspected of new or recurrent bladder cancer. METHODS: A systematic review was conducted of randomized controlled trials (RCTs), nonrandomized comparative studies, or diagnostic cross-sectional studies comparing PDD with WLC. Fifteen electronic databases and Web sites were searched (last searches April 2008). For clinical effectiveness, only RCTs were considered. RESULTS: Twenty-seven studies (2,949 participants) assessed test performance. PDD had higher sensitivity than WLC (92 percent, 95 percent confidence interval [CI], 80-100 percent versus 71 percent, 95 percent CI, 49-93 percent) but lower specificity (57 percent, 95 percent CI, 36-79 percent versus 72 percent, 95 percent CI, 47-96 percent). For detecting higher risk tumors, median range sensitivity of PDD (89 percent [6-100 percent]) was higher than WLC (56 percent [0

Shabnam Dadgar, Ceana Nezhat The reproductive and urinary tracts in women are closely related anatomically and because of this proximity, pathogenesis or diagnosis of gynecologic conditions may need evaluation of the urinary tract. Cystoscopy is an endoscopic technique for examining the internal aspect of the bladder. It is the principle way to diagnose and surveil bladder conditions. Anatomy of female urinary tract The female urethra is a tubular structure 2.5 to 4 cm in length. The upper one-third is lined by transitional epithelium and the lower two-thirds are lined by squamous epithelium. The periurethral glands are located medially and posterolaterally (Figure 1). Indications to perform cystoscopy Cystoscopy can be used for diagnostic and operative indications. It is being used in gynecologic and non-gynecologic conditions.4,5 Indications to perform cystoscopy in gynecology to evaluate the following: Identifying intraoperative injuries (e.g., ureteral injury, intravesical placement of mesh or
In this paper, we propose a coupled level-set framework for segmentation of bladder wall using T1-weighted magnetic resonance (MR) images. The segmentation results will be used for non-invasive MR-based virtual cystoscopy (VCys). The framework uses two level-set functions to segment inner and outer borders of the bladder wall respectively. Based on Chan-Vese (C-V) model, a local adaptive fitting (LAF) image energy is introduced to capture local intensity contrast. Comparing with previous work, our method has the following advantages. First of all, unlike most other work which only segments the boundary of the bladder but not inner border and outer border respectively, our method extracts the inner border as well as the outer border of bladder wall automatically. Secondly, we focus on T1-weighted MR images which decrease the image intensity of the urine and therefore minimize the partial volume effect (PVE) on the bladder wall for detection of abnormalities on the mucosa layer in contrast to ...

A combination of optical imaging technologies with cancer-specific molecular imaging agents is a potentially powerful strategy to improve cancer detection and enable image-guided surgery. Bladder cancer is primarily managed endoscopically by white light cystoscopy with suboptimal diagnostic accuracy. Emerging optical imaging technologies hold great potential for improved diagnostic accuracy but lack imaging agents for molecular specificity. Using fluorescently labeled CD47 antibody (anti-CD47) as molecular imaging agent, we demonstrated consistent identification of bladder cancer with clinical grade fluorescence imaging systems, confocal endomicroscopy, and blue light cystoscopy in fresh surgically removed human bladders. With blue light cystoscopy, the sensitivity and specificity for CD47-targeted imaging were 82.9 and 90.5%, respectively. We detected variants of bladder cancers, which are diagnostic challenges, including carcinoma in situ, residual carcinoma in tumor resection bed, recurrent ...

Cystoscopy is a medical procedure done by doctors for them to be able to examine the lining of the bladder and the urethra, which is the tube that carries urine of the body. A hollow tube attached with a lens is put into the urethra and is slowly advanced within the bladder. There are multiple ways to perform a cystoscopy such as it being done in a testing room having anesthetic jelly to numb on the urethra or with sedation in an outpatient procedure or to have it done in the hospital during general anesthesia. The way its done depends on the situation and the reasons behind the procedure include seeing as to why there are certain signs and symptoms, like blood in urine, diagnosing bladder diseases and conditions, diagnosing an enlarged prostate and treating bladder diseases and conditions like having small tumors removed if needed. ...
I had a cystoscopy in 2006 without sedation. Some kind of numbing gel was used. It wasnt exactly painful but I have GAD(generalized anxiety disorder) and I was super anxious and stressed out during the procedure. I could feel the scope moving around inside me, even though it wasnt painful, I started to freak out. I dont know if it was the look on my face or I said aloud what I was thinking, Dear Jesus help me, that caused the doctor to say after it was over, Sorry it was so terrible for you. Didnt find the reason for my hematuria and said I might have a leaky blood vessel. Recently I have had pink blood on toilet tissue after urinating. Went to family doctor and she diagnosed me with a UTI and prescribed antibiotics. Same thing happened a couple of weeks later and I was diagnosed with a bladder infection, more antibiotics. My family doctor referred me to a urologist. I am afraid I will need another cystoscopy. The urological doctor (a female)who performed the first one has since retired ...
Cystoscopy is a procedure that lets the healthcare provider view the urinary tract, particularly the bladder, the urethra, and the openings to the ureters. Cystoscopy can help find problems with the urinary tract. This may include early signs of cancer, infection, narrowing, blockage, or bleeding.

I had a cystoscopy a year or so ago. They injected lidocaine up into the urethra (no needle, just the tip of a syringe). Then put a Q-tip barely into the urethra to keep the lidocaine from flowing back out. Cystoscopy was painless; the lidocaine did its job well. Though they told me that urination might be uncomfortable afterwards, it wasnt for me. I see you have already had your procedure.

The aim is to develop and build an original cystoscopic panoramic imaging device based on bimodality in order to detect and localize patients urothelial cancerous lesions. The intesrest of such an innovative setup is to provide clinicians with more precise and efficient diagnostic information than with conventional cystoscopy, while remaining as non invasive as conventional cystoscopy. One part of the project is about developing an instrumentation that can be adapted to any type of commercially available cystoscopic devices. This device is made of i) a light generator composed of time-multiplexed white and violet (for fluorescence) light excitation sources following the acquisition video rate and of ii) a miniaturized video system acquiring images in several spectral bandwidths synchronized with the generator. The other part of the
OBJECTIVES To assess the efficacy of nuclear matrix protein 22 (NMP-22) in the diagnosis of recurrent, superficial bladder cancer and whether it can predict for future recurrence. METHODS Patients with diagnosed and treated superficial transitional cell carcinoma urinary bladder (Stage Ta, T1, Tis, Nx, and M0) presenting for surveillance follow-up were prospectively enrolled in this study from February 2004 to August 2005. These patients underwent urine cytology, NMP-22 testing, and cystopanendoscopy on enrollment in the study. For the next year, these patients underwent cystopanendoscopy and cytology at 3-month intervals. The ability of NMP-22 to predict for recurrence was determined using the cystoscopy findings as the reference standard. RESULTS A total of 145 patients were included in the study. Of these, 56 had recurrence at enrollment. Of the 56 patients, 48 had positive NMP-22 findings and 22 had positive urine cytology findings. The sensitivity, specificity, positive predictive value, and
Anything that potentially causes pain and discomfort is also going to cause a lot of anxiety. Anxiety in turn, causes muscles to tense up, instead of relaxing, which would make the procedure more difficult and potentially more painful. So, whats a patient to do? MUSIC! Music is a known therapeutic and calming agent.. One of our happiest, most-satisfied customers used the Surgical Serenity Solution with her cystoscopy and reported I was really not looking forward to this procedure. But I had been having some serious symptoms and cancer runs in the family, so I knew I needed to go ahead and have the cystoscopy. I ordered the surgical headphones and as soon as I put them and started listening to this beautiful music, I knew that I would get through it. I highly recommend this concept. They just take you to another whole world and make the procedure seem less scary and painful!. ...

Transurethral bladder biopsy is done to help find the cause of a bladder problem, such as bladder cancer. During the procedure, small tissue samples are taken from the inside of your bladder. The samples are then tested in a lab. This sheet explains how the procedure is done.
BACKGROUND: Although few studies evaluated the significance of random biopsies under white light cystoscopy (WLC) in patients with non-muscle-invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC), the findings are controversial.. AIM: This aim of this study was to evaluate what kind of preoperative covariates were useful as predictive factors in detecting carcinoma in situ (CIS) from normal-appearing mucosa using random bladder biopsies under WLC.. METHODS AND RESULTS: A total of 229 patients with NMIBC underwent initial TUR followed by random biopsies under WLC at Red Cross Takayama Hospital between 2007 and 2016. These patients underwent TUR with complete resection of intravesical visible tumors followed by random biopsies of normal-appearing mucosa. In this study, random bladder biopsies of normal-appearing urothelial mucosa, excluding abnormal mucosa, were carried out with a cold punch in the selected intravesical sites. The covariates included age, gender, the urine cytology result, presence of an abnormal ...

Liao: Bladder cancer is among the more common cancers encountered in the veteran population and use of blue light cystoscopy has improved the detection.
Photodynamic diagnosis (PDD) is a technique that enhances the detection of tumors during cystoscopy using a photosensitizer which accumulates primarily in cancerous cells and will fluoresce when illuminated by violetblue light. A disadvantage of PDD is the relatively low specificity. In this retrospective study we aimed to identify predictors for false positive findings in PDD. Factors such as gender, age, recent transurethral resection of bladder tumors (TURBT), previous intravesical therapy (IVT) and urinary tract infections (UTIs) were examined for association with the false positive rates in a multivariate analysis. Data of 366 procedures and 200 patients were collected. Patients were instilled with 5-aminolevulinic acid (5-ALA) intravesically and 1253 biopsies were taken from tumors and suspicious lesions. Female gender and TURBT are independent predictors of false positives in PDD. However, previous intravesical therapy with Bacille Calmette-Guérin is also an important predictor of false ...

Cystoscopy is a test that looks at the inner lining of the bladder and the tube from the bladder to the outside of the body (urethra). The cystoscope is a thin, lighted viewing tool that is put into the urethra and moved into the bladder.. When the cystoscope is inside your bladder, sterile water or saline is injected through the scope to help expand your bladder and to create a clear view. A medicine may also be injected through the scope to reduce chances of infection.. A cystoscopy can check for stones, tumors, bleeding, and infection. Cystoscopy can see areas of the bladder and urethra that usually do not show up well on X-rays. Tiny surgical instruments can be put through the cystoscope to remove samples of tissue (biopsy) or samples of urine.. Cystoscopy also can be used to treat some bladder problems, such as removing small bladder stones and some small growths.. ...
Cystoscopy is a diagnostic procedure that allows the doctor to directly examine the urinary tract, particularly the bladder, the urethra, and the openings to the ureters. Cystoscopy can assist in identifying problems with the urinary tract, such as early signs of cancer, infection, strictures (narrowing), obstruction, and bleeding.. A long, flexible, lighted tube, called a cystoscope, is inserted into the urethra (the tube that allows urine to pass outside the body) and advanced into the bladder. In addition to allowing visualization of the internal urethra and bladder, the cystoscope enables the doctor to irrigate, suction, and access these structures with surgical instruments. The urologist can also instill substances into the bladder using the cystoscope. During a cystoscopy, the doctor may remove tissue for further examination (biopsy) and possibly treat any problems that may be detected.. Internally, a healthy urinary tract appears pink and smooth, with a moist mucosal lining. Some medical ...

Previous trials to increase stone clearance rates have been recently reached using flexible equipment in laparoscopic surgery, however, it is not clear whether using flexible equipment is really helpful in performing pyelolithotomies and the clearance rates using flexible equipment varies 71% to 100%. Therefore, authors plan to investigate the usefulness of flexible cystoscopy in performing laparoscopic pyelolithotomies and ureterolithotomies by comparing operative results of a single surgeons experience ...
Cystoscopy, or cystourethroscopy, is a procedure that enables a urologist to view the inside of the bladder and urethra in great detail. It is commonly used to diagnose bladder tumors, identify obstruction of the bladder and look for any abnormalities of the bladder and its lining.. The procedure is usually performed as an outpatient procedure in a urology clinic or treatment room. Prior to the procedure, the patient will need to empty their bladder and will then be positioned on an examination table. After administration of local anesthesia, a cystoscope is inserted through the urethra into the bladder. The cystoscope is a thin, lighted tube that is either flexible or rigid. Water or saline is then instilled into the bladder through the cystoscope. As the fluid fills the bladder, the bladder wall is stretched thus allowing detailed viewing by the urologist. Under normal conditions, the bladder wall should appear smooth and the bladder should be normal size, shape and position and there should ...

Although radiological tests provide important information about the kidneys and the ureters, cystoscopy is still the best method of evaluating the bladder and the urethra. The cystoscope, a long thin camera, is inserted through the urethra into the bladder.. Today, using flexible cystoscopes, most of these diagnostic procedures are performed in a urologists clinic with little or no discomfort. During the cystoscopy, the urologist will look through the cystoscope and make a note of anything in the bladder that may be abnormal. If a tumor or other abnormality is identified, the urologist will likely schedule you for a cystoscopy under anesthesia with bladder biopsy or transurethral resection of bladder tumor (TURBT).. Some urologist may have the ability to perform small bladder biopsies in the office. The tissue sample, or biopsy, is then sent to the pathologist for examination. A sample of the urine from the bladder is sent for analysis of the cells (called cytology) to determine if the urine ...

S100 calcium binding protein A8 (S100A8) has been implicated as a prognostic indicator in several types of cancer. However, previous studies are limited in their ability to predict the clinical behavior of the cancer. Here, we sought to identify a molecular signature based on S100A8 expression and to assess its usefulness as a prognostic indicator of disease progression in non-muscle invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC). We used 103 primary NMIBC specimens for microarray gene expression profiling. The median follow-up period for all patients was 57.6 months (range: 3.2 to 137.0 months). Various statistical methods, including the leave-one-out cross validation method, were applied to identify a gene expression signature able to predict the likelihood of progression. The prognostic value of the gene expression signature was validated in an independent cohort (n = 302). Kaplan-Meier estimates revealed significant differences in disease progression associated with the expression signature of S100A8-correlated

Abstract. Background: Non-muscle invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC) is associated with high rates of recurrence, resulting in frequent follow-up cystoscopies. We evaluated the use of two point-of-care tests - the nuclear matrix protein 22 (NMP22) and urinary bladder cancer antigen (UBC) Rapid - compared to routine follow-up in patients with a previous history of NMIBC.. Methods: 31 patients with cystoscopy-verified active bladder cancer, and 44 follow-up patients without disease as confirmed by cystoscopy were prospectively enrolled. All urine samples were analyzed by voided urine and bladder washing cytology, NMP22 and UBC rapid test (qualitatively and quantitatively). The best cutoff (highest Youden index; ≥6.7 ng/ml) for the quantitative UBC was determined by receiver operating characteristic curves.. Results: Voided urine and barbotage cytology resulted in a sensitivity of 25.8% and 32.3%, and a specificity of 100% and 100%, while the NMP22 showed a sensitivity and specificity of 12.9% and ...
Smilow Cancer Hospital at Yale-New Haven recently became the only hospital in the state to offer Blue Light Cystoscopy with Cysview, which has been proven to significantly increase the detection of bladder cancer over white-light cystoscopy alone. 20.7% of patients with primary bladder cancer had at least one tumor detected with blue light that was not detected with white light. 27.7% of patients with recurrent bladder cancer had at least one tumor detected with blue light that was not detected with white light, and a seven-month improvement in time to recurrence has been demonstrated. Following diagnosis, the multidisciplinary bladder cancer program offers complete care with specialized pathology, neoadjuvant therapy options, an enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) protocol that has been demonstrated to reduce the length of stay and post-surgical complications, and advanced surgical techniques to maintain sexual function and bladder control..

2. Inappropriate voiding may also be a function of weak stimulus control with individuals who are experiencing depression or confusion. Low-grade tumors missed by cytology are papillary lesions readily visualized with the help of a cystoscope and thus earmarked for biopsy.48,49 For high-grade UCs, however, particularly carcinoma in situ (CIS), which is more difficult to detect by cystoscopy, urine cytology provides a high degree of diagnostic accuracy. We report a case of plasmacytoma of the bladder that was diagnosed by urinary cytology. Non-invasive methods such as urine cytology detection of polyomavirus infected uroepithelial cells (decoy cells) or detection of polyomavirus in urine by electron microscopy, though sensitive, are non-specific and have poor positive predictive values. Suggestive urine cytology findings encourage the urologist to perform a bladder biopsy. Ideally at least three mid-morning or random specimens should be submitted for examination. Cells can also be extracted by ...
The NMP22 test (BladderChek, Matritech, Newton, MA) significantly increased the detection of recurrent bladder cancer, finding 99% of the malignancies when used with cystoscopy, according to a study published this week in JAMA (2006; 295:299-305).
Once pain medication is given in the bladder, a cystoscope will be inserted through the urethra - or bladder opening. Cystoscope is a narrow, lighted tube which enables the urologist to see inside your bladder. You may already have had a cystoscopy during the assessment of your condition.. The Botox is then administered through the cystoscope. Multiple small injections are given into the detrusor muscle of the bladder wall. For most patients 100 units of onabotulinumtoxinA in 20 doses are given.. Afterwards you will be allowed to relax for 30 minutes before going home. It would be unwise to drive if you have been given a general anaesthesia and went to sleep. At New York Urology Specialists, we administer Botox under local anaesthesia to over 90% of patients and patients can go home alone.. You might experience some burning and a small amount of blood in urine in the first few days after Botox administration. ...
I would like to know whether anyone out there suffers from cystitis symptoms but is found to have no infection when testing. This has been happening to me every few months for the last three or four years. The symptoms only last six to eight hours but that is six to eight hours of hell as many of you will know. A male GP tried to fob me off with the explanation that its very common among women of your age and you will just have to put up with it. A female GP is taking it more seriously. I have had two cystoscopies and my bladder looks normal. I was told my urethra is narrow and the cystoscopy would help my problem, but it didnt. I am late 50s age so menopausal. The female GP tried me on HRT cream for 2 months but it didnt help. I am willing to try anything but the consultant who did the cystoscopies could not suggest anything e.g. supplements, what to drink or not to drink, what to eat or not to eat etc. Any suggestions would be gratefully received.

Introduction: About 5% of patients referred with dipstick-detected haematuria will have a bladder or renal carcinoma. It has been suggested that examination of the urinary sediment to confirm microscopic haematuria is helpful in the selection of patients for full urological investigation. We have used the data from a prospective evaluation of an out-patient haematuria clinic to explore this hypothesis. Patients and methods: A total of 474 patients referred with dipstick haematuria was assessed by history, examination, urine analysis, urine microscopy, flexible cystoscopy and IVU. Results: Thirty patients (63%) had TCC of the bladder and three (0.06%) had renal adenocarcinoma. The sensitivity and specificity of urine examination for the detection of these tumours are shown in the table. Sensitivity (%) Specificity (%) Positive dipstick urine analysis (| Trace) 64 51 Microscopic haematuria 29 97 (| 1 red blood cell/high-power field) Malignant cells on cytology 27 99 Coulter-counter analysis 18 98 (normal
A 22-year-old man presented with a 4-week history of painless haematuria. He had no other symptoms and was otherwise healthy. He had no significant medical or surgical history and clinical examination was entirely normal. Routine blood tests, urine microscopy and culture, and urine cytology failed to detect any abnormality. Excretory urography was also normal.. He underwent rigid cystoscopy. Two discrete nodules (1 cm and 0.5 cm in diameter) were found in the trigone and base of his bladder and these were resected. Histological examination confirmed them to be small cell, or primary lymphoma of the bladder of the mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) type. Computed tomography (CT) of the pelvis, abdomen and thorax confirmed the disease to be restricted to his bladder. Bone marrow aspirate was also normal. The patient underwent radiotherapy (20 courses, total tumour dose 4000 cGy). At cystoscopy 3 months later there was no obvious evidence of tumour, but random biopsies from the affected area ...
Bladder cancer is the fifth most common cancer in men with more than 330 000 new cases annually and more than 130 000 die of the disease1. It has a high recurrence rate with an average of 61% in one year and 78% over five years, making the lifetime costs of managing bladder cancer one of the highest amongst all cancers. It is a costly, potentially progressive disease for which patients have to undergo multiple cystoscopies because of the high risk of recurrence.. A recent paper on the economic burden of bladder cancer across the European Union estimates that bladder cancer cost the EU 4.9 billion Euro in 2012. There is an urgent need to improve both the diagnosis and the management of bladder cancer for the benefit of patients and healthcare systems alike.. Bladder cancer is classified into two types, non-muscle invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC) and muscle-invasive bladder cancer (MIBC), depending on the depth of invasion in the bladder wall. NMIBC is still in the inner layer of cells. These ...
Patients are sent to me three or four times per week for microscopic hematuria. That means that they have red blood cells (RBCs) found on urinalysis but not seen with the naked eye.. In the past, we have launched a full-on evaluation of microscopic hematuria if we find 3 or greater RBCs seen in a high power field (HPF). That means that when the lab technician looks at someones urine sample under a powerful microscope, they see three or more RBCs staring back at them.. The full-on evaluation includes vitals signs, blood work to check kidney function, a urine cytology to look for abnormal cells, a cystoscopy (looking inside the bladder with a camera) and a CT scan of the abdomen and pelvis. The CT scan looks for kidney stones or anything else along the entire urinary tract from the kidneys to the bladder that could be causing the RBCs to appear on the urinalysis. The majority of the time, we never find a reason for the RBCs, and we chalk it up to familial microscopic hematuria. That ...
Bladder cancer will kill upward of 170,000 people worldwide this year, but bladder cancer isnt fatal in the bladder. Instead, in order to be fatal the disease must metastasize to faraway sites. The question has been this: does localized, non-muscle invasive (NMI) bladder cancer eventually become the more dangerous, muscle-invasive (MI) form of the disease, or are NMI and MI bladder cancers genetically distinct from the start?. A University of Colorado Cancer Center study published today in the journal Stem Cells shows its the latter: the progenitor cells that create MI bladder cancer are different than the progenitor cells that create NMI bladder cancer. Though these two cancers grow at the same site, they are different diseases.. This work provides an important new perspective on how we look at bladder cancer biology, says Dan Theodorescu, MD, PhD, director of the University of Colorado Cancer Center and the studys senior author.. The group including first author Garrett Dancik, PhD, ...
After the anesthetic takes effect, the cystoscope tube is inserted into your urethra and slowly moved into your bladder. If your urethra has a spot that is too narrow, other smaller tools are inserted first. They will gradually make it large enough for the tube.. Next, the doctor injects either sterile water or salt water (saline) to help make your bladder larger and to create a clear view. The doctor may also inject medicine to reduce chances of infection.. The doctor can also insert tiny tools through the tube to collect tissue samples for biopsy. The tissue samples are sent to the lab to be checked.. The tube is usually in your bladder for only 2 to 10 minutes. But if other X-ray tests are done at the same time, the entire test may take up to 45 minutes or longer.. If a local anesthetic is used, you may be able to get up right after the test. If a general anesthetic is used, you will stay in the recovery room until you are awake and able to walk. (This usually takes an hour or less.) You can ...

For organ retrieval, there were also opportunities for registrars to join the Kings team. Seeing a living donor kidney perfuse and produce urine intraoperatively is a unique experience and even the excitement of feeling a thrill on your first vascular anastomoses is a perfect way to reignite any enthusiasm for surgery that may have been lost in the national selection process.. I had not done a lot of open surgery going into the job and there was a learning curve to anticipate correctly and assist during a transplant. I could not say at the beginning that I was able to tie at depth efficiently and understand all the different anastomosis techniques used by the different surgeons. It was not easy but by the end of the job, every consultant was comfortable operating with me and I had performed a number of anastomoses myself.. Compared to spending too much time in a flexible cystoscopy clinic and consolidating already developed skills, the opportunity to have a learning curve at something ...
