A tube that transports URINE from the URINARY BLADDER to the outside of the body in both the sexes. It also has a reproductive function in the male by providing a passage for SPERM.
Pathological processes involving the URETHRA.
Cancer or tumors of the URETHRA. Benign epithelial tumors of the urethra usually consist of squamous and transitional cells. Primary urethral carcinomas are rare and typically of squamous cells. Urethral carcinoma is the only urological malignancy that is more common in females than in males.
Narrowing of any part of the URETHRA. It is characterized by decreased urinary stream and often other obstructive voiding symptoms.
A musculomembranous sac along the URINARY TRACT. URINE flows from the KIDNEYS into the bladder via the ureters (URETER), and is held there until URINATION.
Partial or complete blockage in any part of the URETHRA that can lead to difficulty or inability to empty the URINARY BLADDER. It is characterized by an enlarged, often damaged, bladder with frequent urges to void.
The external reproductive organ of males. It is composed of a mass of erectile tissue enclosed in three cylindrical fibrous compartments. Two of the three compartments, the corpus cavernosa, are placed side-by-side along the upper part of the organ. The third compartment below, the corpus spongiosum, houses the urethra.
The body region lying between the genital area and the ANUS on the surface of the trunk, and to the shallow compartment lying deep to this area that is inferior to the PELVIC DIAPHRAGM.

Urethral response to latex and Silastic catheters. (1/1136)

The reaction of the urethral mucosa to latex and Silastic catheters was compared in two groups of patients undergoing prostatectomy. The bacteriologic response in the two groups differed little; however, Silastic catheters produced less cellular reaction than latex catheters.  (+info)

Obstructive uropathy and hydronephrosis in male KK-Ay mice: a report of cases. (2/1136)

Uropathy associated with hydronephrosis was observed frequently in our male KK-Ay mouse colony during a long-term study of diabetes. The lesion occurred in 24 of the 31 KK-Ay male mice and accounted for the greatest number of spontaneous deaths among them. It was observed after 4 months of age and involved about hard plugs of altered seminal material resembling the seminal vesicle secretion. The plugs became impacted in the urethral bulb and the bladder. The penile anatomy, with its flexure, pressure on the urethra from the bulbocavernosus muscle, and the characteristic ability of the seminal fluid to easily coagulate to form the vaginal plug may have contributed to the lesion. Correlation between development of the uropathy and diabetes has not been established.  (+info)

True hermaphroditism associated with microphthalmia. (3/1136)

A 4-year-old boy with an undescending left testis, penoscrotal hypospadia and bilateral microphthalmia was admitted to our hospital. Chromosome analysis revealed a karyotype of 46, XX del(x)(p2 2,31) and the sex-determining region of the Y chromosome (SRY) was negative. The right testis was located in the scrotum and a left cystic ovary-like gonad, a salpinx and a unicorn uterus were found in the left inguinal canal. Histologically the gonad was an ovotestis in which primordial follicles covered infantile seminiferous tubules. Microphthalmia is observed in some congenital syndromes caused by interstitial deletion of the X chromosome. This case suggested that the short arm of the X chromosome was involved in the differentiation of the gonad. Very closely located follicles and infantile seminiferous tubules indicated that induction of meiosis in the fetus was controlled by the local microenvironment in follicles and seminiferous tubules, and not by the systemic hormonal condition.  (+info)

Correlation of periurethral bacterial flora with bacteriuria and urinary tract infection in children with neurogenic bladder receiving intermittent catheterization. (5/1136)

Periurethral bacteria are inoculated daily into the urine of children with neurogenic bladder during clean intermittent catheterization (CIC). We examined how frequently periurethral bacterial species produced bacteriuria in children followed longitudinally. When Escherichia coli was detected on the periurethra, bacteriuria was also present 93% of the time. When Klebsiella, Pseudomonas, or Enterococcus species or nonpathogens were detected on the periurethra, bacteriuria was present 80%, 40%, 40%, and 25% of the time, respectively. Clonal typing of multiple colonies of E. coli from each periurethral and urine culture revealed that children carried only one or two E. coli clones in their urinary tracts over months of surveillance. When E. coli was detected in the urine, the identical clone was on the periurethra. E. coli persisted for weeks in the urine without causing symptoms. Occasionally the same E. coli clone carried for weeks caused a urinary tract infection. Bacteriuria frequently occurs after inoculation of periurethral E. coli into the urine during CIC.  (+info)

The physiology of the mammalian urinary outflow tract. (6/1136)

Urinary outflow from the mammalian bladder occurs through the urethra. This outflow tract is a complicated structure composed of striated and smooth muscle and vascular urothelium. It is controlled by somatic and autonomic nerves and has several functions: it generates sustained tone to prevent urinary leakage during bladder filling; it generates transient reflex increases in pressure to prevent opening of the lumen when abdominal pressure rises; it undergoes relaxation preceding micturition and can generate urethral opening and shortening during micturition. A urethral pressure profile shows a peak pressure of > or = 100 cmH2O. The outermost coat is striated muscle, the striated or external sphincter. The fibres are predominantly circularly oriented. The extent varies in different species and between sexes. In the human female it extends the length of the urethra, and is composed mainly of slow twitch fibres. In the male, the sphincter extends from the membranous urethra over the base of the prostate and has nearly equal numbers of slow and fast twitch fibres. In both sexes, the posterior border may be deficient in striated muscle, and filled by circularly oriented smooth muscle. Activity in the slow twitch fibres through somatic nerves may be continuous during bladder filling. Outer circular and inner longitudinal smooth muscle is present Strips from either layer will generate sustained tone particularly if dissected from the high pressure zone. This tone is myogenic, and may be achieved in the absence of action potentials, but relies on influx of calcium through L-type calcium channels. Both layers receive sympathetic and parasympathetic excitatory innervation and nitrergic inhibitory innervation. Normal urethral pressure requires blood flow to the urothelium (lamina propria). Striated and smooth muscles are both thought to contribute to the resting urethral pressure in the human. The precise role of the smooth muscles during micturition is as yet unresolved.  (+info)

Increased frequency of detection of Ureaplasma urealyticum and Mycoplasma genitalium in AIDS patients without urethral symptoms. (7/1136)

The roles of Mycoplasma genitalium and Ureaplasma urealyticum in nongonococcal urethritis are not yet well established. The aim of this study was to determine the presence of these microorganisms in the urethral tracts of 187 human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1)-infected male patients with no clinical signs of urethritis. The results indicate that the prevalence of M. genitalium and U. urealyticum was higher in AIDS patients than in asymptomatic, HIV-1-infected patients and in healthy individuals. The high rate of mycoplasmas and ureaplasmas detected in AIDS patients, in the absence of urethritis, argues against major roles in causing disease at the urethral mucosal level for these microorganisms.  (+info)

Prolonged enhancement of the micturition reflex in the cat by repetitive stimulation of bladder afferents. (8/1136)

1. Prolonged modulation of the parasympathetic micturition reflex was studied in cats anaesthetized by alpha-chloralose. Reflex discharges were recorded from a thin pelvic nerve filament to the bladder and evoked by stimulation of the remaining ipsilateral bladder pelvic nerves or urethral branches of the pudendal nerve. 2. Stimulation of bladder or urethral afferents at Adelta intensity evoked micturition reflexes with a latency of 90-120 ms. Such reflexes were much enhanced following repetitive conditioning stimulation of the same afferents at 20 Hz for 5 min. 3. The reflex enhancement lasted more than 1 h after the conditioning stimulation. The effect was not prevented by a preceding complete transection of the sympathetic supply to the bladder. A prolonged suppression of the reflex was obtained after conditioning stimulation of afferents in the dorsal clitoris nerves. 4. It is proposed that the prolonged modulations of the micturition reflex represent physiological adaptive processes, which preserve a flawless function of the bladder during life. The observations provide a theoretical explanation for the beneficial effect of electric nerve stimulation in patients with voiding disorders.  (+info)

A 31 year-old primigravid pregnant woman with unremarkable history was referred to the Tu Du Hospital, Vietnam, with diagnosis of fetal megacystis detected on routine sonography. Ultrasound scan at 17 weeks 6 days reported the following findings: echogenic kidneys, right pyelectasis (3.6 mm), dilated right ureter (3.2-3.6 mm) (Fig. 1), left pyelectasis (3.2 mm), dilated urinary bladder (33 × 24 mm) with keyhole sign (Fig. 2), dorsally curved penis with largely dilated penile urethra (18 × 5 mm) (Fig. 3). The amniotic fluid volume was normal. No other abnormalities were found. Based on such abnormal sonographic findings, including hydronephrosis, hydroureters, megacystis and dilated penile urethra, we came to a diagnosis of scaphoid congenital megalourethra. After parental counseling, termination of pregnancy proved the prenatal findings (Fig. 4). ...
In human anatomy, men have longer urethras than women. This means that women have bladder infections more often, because their bladders are closer to the outside. Because the male urethra is longer and is not straight, inserting a catheter (tube to help urination) is more difficult in men. In women, the urethra is 2.5-4 cm (1-1.5 in) long. Its opening to the outside of the body is part of the vulva (the area between a womans legs). The female urethra is between the clitoris and the opening to the vagina. In men, the urethra is about 20 cm (8 in) long and its opening to the outside of the body is at the end of the penis. The male urethra has three sections: ...
The urethra is the tube that carries the urine from the bladder to the exterior. The urinary meatus is the external urethral opening. In the male the urethra is common to the urinary and reproductive systems; in the female it belongs only to the urinary system. The female urethra is about 4 cm long, extending from the bladder to the external orifice in the vestibule. It is embedded in the anterior wall of the vagina and surrounded by the sphincter urethrae. The male urethra is about 20 cm long and is divided into three parts: the prostatic, membranous, and penile portions. The prostatic urethra is surrounded by the prostate gland; it contains the orifices of the prostatic and ejaculatory ducts. This portion of the male urethra is about 2.5 cm long. The membranous urethra is about 2 cm in length and is surrounded by the external sphincter. The penile urethra, the longest portion, is about 15 cm long. It lies in the ventral portion of the penis, extending to its external opening. ...
EFFECTS OF DIABETES MELLITUS ON THE BIOMECHANICAL PROPERTIES AND PHARMACOLOGICAL FUNCTION OF THE FEMALE RAT URETHRA EX-VIVO Rachelle Lynn Prantil, MS University of Pittsburgh, 2004 Diabetic cystopathy results in a grossly distended, hypomotile bladder due to inefficient voiding. While the bladder has been extensively studied, little effort has been made towards the understanding of the urethra and the effects of this devastating disease. The current study is aimed to evaluate the effects of diabetes mellitus (DM) on the biomechanical properties and the pharmacological function of the female rat urethra ex vivo. DM was induced in female rats by injection of streptozotocin. At 3, 5,and 10 weeks, the urethras were excised and mounted into an ex-vivo system at in vivo length. For mechanical testing, urethras were subjected to stepwise increases of static, intraurethral pressure from 0 to 20 mmHg in both a baseline and passive state. Continuous outer diameter measurements were made using a laser ...
The urethra is the tube passing from the bladder down the penis or to the upper aspect of the vagina. At the top epd, just below the bladder, are consciously and unconsciously controlled valves (involved with the prostate in the male) diat allow urine flow. Bacteria may travel up the urethra from the external skin surface but these are generally washed away by the flow of urine on a regular basis. The male urethra is a stretchable tube allowing for an erection but it is quite a long passage for bacteria to travel to infect the bladder. The urethra in women is much shorter, and markedly so in girls, increasing the chances of infection and cystitis.. RECOMMENDATIONS. External hygiene is extremely important and washing the genitals is a must, especially at an early age or after intercourse.. Good hydration leading to frequent urination is an important protective measure.. Urethral discharge. A discharge from the urethra is usually associated with bacterial infection although yeast infection such as ...
Purulent discharge from the urethra refers to inflammation of the urethra. Into the urethra to receive pyogenic bacteria. Frequent cause of unprotected sex and infection by the bacterium Neisseria gonorrhoeae. The illness is known as gonorrhea. It is a sexually transmitted disease. Manifested by redness around the mouth of the urethra, pain, cutting (especially when you urinate). Very important is the discharge from the urethra, dirty underwear. When vaginal discharge or similar symptoms should immediately consult a doctor - a man can infect their sexual partners, moreover, untreated gonorrhea can go into a chronic phase, and cause lingering problems - for men it is an inflammation of the prostate and epididymis. In women, inflammation of the cervix.
Figuring out how to insert sounds into the urethra is something that should be left up to the trained professionals. Inserting anything into your urethra just isnt a good idea gentleman. Sounds were created to open up any blockages from the penis through the urethra. Without the usage of these sounds probing their ways to the urethra, the afflicted guy would find it painful if not completely impossible to urinate. Sounds are very thin, smooth, and metallic. Many of them have an s-curve at one end in order for the doctor to tease the blockages open. But, how do you get a sound into the urethra? Very carefully. Thats how.. ...
The urethra is a fibromuscular tube that conducts urine from the bladder (and semen from the ductus deferens) to the exterior. It begins at the neck of the bladder, traverses the pelvic and urogenital diaphragms, and ends at the external urethral orifice. The female urethra, about 4 cm in length, is fused with the anterior wall of the vagina. It ends between the clitoris and the vagina. The male urethra, about 20 cm in length, comprises three parts: prostatic, membranous, and spongy (see figs. 34-1 and 38-4). The prostatic part, which is the most dilatable, descends through the prostate. Its posterior wall presents a median ridge, the urethral crest, the summit of which is termed the colliculus seminalis (or the verumontanum). A diverticulum, the prostatic utricle (probably corresponding to portions of the uterus and vagina) opens on the colliculus, as do the ejaculatory ducts. The prostatic ducts open into a groove, the prostatic sinus, on each side of the urethral crest. The membranous part ...

There is abundant evidence that the lower urinary tract (LUT) mucosal layer is involved both in mechanosensory functions that regulate bladder contractile activity and in urethral sensation. Changes to the mucosa can be associated with a number of bladder pathologies. For example, alterations of the urothelium and underlying lamina propria at both the molecular and structural levels have been reported in both patients and animals associated with disorders such as bladder pain syndrome and diabetic cystopathy. In contrast to the urinary bladder, much less is known about the urothelium/lamina propria of the bladder neck/proximal urethra. There are important gender differences in the outflow region both anatomically and with respect to innervation, hormonal sensitivity, and location of the external urethral sphincter. There is reasonable evidence to support the view that the mucosal signaling pathway in the proximal urethra is important for normal voiding, but it has also been speculated that the ...
In anesthetized rats, voiding is typically associated with phasic activation (bursting) of the external urethral sphincter (EUS). During spontaneous voiding in unanesthetized, unrestrained rats, EUS bursting is the most common form of EUS activity exhibited, but it is not necessary for productive voiding to occur. The aim of the present study was to determine which aspects of EUS activity contributed to void size during bursting and non-bursting voiding in conscious, freely moving rats.. ...
In general, the invention is directed to treatment of urinary incontinence by the implantation of one or more bulking prostheses proximate to a urethral sphincter. These bulking prostheses, which may include biocompatible hydrogel, are implanted into the tissue outside the urethra, proximate to a urethral sphincter. When implanted, the bulking prostheses are in a miniature state. Upon introduction into the body, the devices enter an enlarged state. In their enlarged state, the bulking prostheses supply extra bulk to the tissues proximate to the external urethral sphincter. With the extra bulk, the patient can exercise voluntary control over the external urethral sphincter to close or maintain closure of the urethra and maintain urinary continence.
A method and apparatus for diagnostic evaluation of the urinary tract. The method comprises the steps of generating a urethral pressure profile and simultaneously monitoring and recording electrical signals derived from the urinary tract thereby generating an electrical or electromyographic profile. As fluid is inputted into the urethra the catheter is mechanically withdrawn therefrom at a constant velocity. Fluid pressure within the urethra is derived and recorded thereby providing a urethral pressure profile. Simultaneously, urethral electrical signals derived from one or more electrodes mounted on the catheter are amplified and graphically displayed, thereby plotting urethral electrical activity and urethral fluid pressure at given points along the urethra. The apparatus comprises an interface unit for withdrawing the catheter and for enabling measurement of the various diagnostic parameters.
In the present study, we instilled capsaicin into the uteruses of female rats and found that this procedure induces cross-organ sensitization on the pelvic-urethra reflex activity as well as the physiological target of this reflex, the contraction wave of the urethra, with a parallel increase in the phosphorylated NMDA NR2B subunit level in the spinal dorsal horn. Moreover, pharmacological blockage of the TRPV1 receptor attenuates the reflex potentiation caused by uterine capsaicin instillation as well as the increment in the phosphorylated NR2B subunit level, indicating that TRPV1 plays a role in the spinal NR2B subunit-dependent cross-organ sensitization induced by uterine capsaicin instillation.. Pelvic pain syndrome, one of the most frequent disorders in women, can lead to years of suffering, disability, and numerous unsuccessful medical treatments. Pelvic pain can arise from several sources, such as the gastrointestinal, urinary, genital, muscular, and skeletal systems. The ...
The effects of alpha-1-adrenoceptor antagonists on the concentration-response curves (CRC) to phenylephrine and oxymetazoline have been studied in prostatic urethra and trigone of male adult rabbits (28 wk old). WB4101 and phentolamine, at low concentrations which should preferentially antagonize the alpha-1A-adrenoceptor subtype, did not modify the oxymetazoline-induced contraction of both prostatic urethra and trigone, suggesting that alpha-1A-adrenoceptors are not activated under these conditions. In urethra, pretreatment with 50 microM chloroethylclonidine (CEC), significantly reduced the maximal contraction to both agonists to 60 and 70% of control, respectively. In trigone, CEC decreased the maximum contraction to phenylephrine, but not to oxymetazoline, by 50%. In addition, CEC shifted to the right the CRC to both agonists. These results suggest the presence of an alpha-1B-adrenoceptor in both rabbit urethra and trigone. Exposure to prazosin (0.01-1 microM) significantly shifted to the ...

The effects of nicorandil on ionic currents recorded from single smooth muscle cells of pig proximal urethra were investigated using patch-clamp techniques. Tension measurement was also performed to study the effects of nicorandil on the resting tone of pig urethra. Nicorandil produced a concentration-dependent sustained outward current that was suppressed by glibenclamide at −50 mV and was carried selectively by K+. In cell-attached configuration, nicorandil activated a 43-pS K+ channel that was reversibly inhibited by 10 μM glibenclamide. This glibenclamide-sensitive 43-pS K+ channel (KGS) ran down after excision of the membrane patch. In inside-out configuration, the application of either 1 mM Mg-ATP or 1 mM nucleotide diphosphate reactivated the KGS. In symmetrical 140 mM K+ conditions, 300 μM nicorandil and 300 μM levcromakalim activated a 2.14-pA K+ channel that exhibited the same amplitude and similar channel-opening kinetics. Methylene blue (10-100 μM), a soluble guanylate ...
The bladder and urethra are supported by muscles, ligaments, and connective tissues around the base of the bladder. This support prevents the leakage of urine, along with the watertight seal provided by the urethra. As a result of pregnancy, childbirth, and aging, or damage by scarring from surgery or radiotherapy, these structures may become damaged or weakened, thus causing stress incontinence, meaning an involuntary loss of urine that occurs during physical activity such as coughing, sneezing, laughing, or exercise . The injection of bulking agents such as collagen around the urethra aims to improve the lost support of the bladder and urethra. The substance most commonly used for injection is collagen; other bulking agents are being developed, for example, a silicon base suspended in a viscous gel called Macroplastique. Teflon paste, introduced in the 1970s, initially gave good results, but was discontinued after reported problems with excessive scarring and with the migration of Teflon ...
Your bladder is a stretchy storage sac for pee. How stretchy? Well, a bladder that is fairly full can hold about 500 ml (1 pint), but it can still stretch to nearly twice that volume (think about the size of a 1 liter water bottle). Near the bottom of your bladder is a tube to the outside of your body called the urethra (yur-ee-thra). In males the urethra passes through the penis and in women it opens to the outside just above the vagina. You have two circular valves or sphincters that normally keep the urethra pinched off when urine is not passing through. The internal urethral sphincter is closer to the bladder and is controlled by reflexes in your spine and other parts of your nervous system that you cannot consciously control. The external urethra sphincter is under conscious control, so you can tell it to open and close as needed.. When your bladder fills, it stretches and nerves fire in response to this stretch and activate a spinal reflex. Usually, you feel the need to pee before urine ...

Is it possible to have male urethra stimulation? Answered by Dr. Roscoe Nelson: High Risk: You run a high risk of ending up with scar tissue in the ur...
Stress incontinence occurs when the pressure inside your bladder as it fills with urine becomes greater than the strength of your urethra to stay closed. The urethra is the tube urine passes through out of your body. Any sudden extra pressure on your bladder, such as laughing or sneezing, can then cause urine to leak out of your urethra.. Your urethra may not be able to stay closed if the muscles in your pelvis (pelvic floor muscles) are weak or damaged, or your urethral sphincter - the ring of muscle that keeps the urethra closed - is damaged.. These problems may be caused by: ...
Female Bladder and Urethra: Basic Diagram of the Female Urinary System of the human body, also known as the Renal System. This labels the right kidney, left kidney, ureters, urinary bladder, and urethra.
The axial MR images proved most informative (diagnostic yield as high as 89%); however, tilting the scan plane obliquely, perpendicular to the long axis of the anal canal improved the visibility of some structures in over half the cases. Three groups of ligaments supporting the female urethra were recognized, as follows: the periurethral ligaments (87%), running ventrally to the urethra; the paraurethral ligaments (60%), originating at the two and ten oclock position of the urethras outer border, respectively; and the pubourethral ligament (57%), hammock-like structure in close contact with the posterior aspect of the urethra. On the same plane, the vagina appeared as a three-layer structure showing different morphology in the upper (horizontal line), middle (H-shaped) and lower third ( U-shaped) with faint, low intensity signal lateral attachments seen only occasionally (< 20 %) inside the paracolpium. The parametrium was seen in different proportions as low signal intensity condensations, ...

An endourethral device is provided having an elongate member having proximal and distal segments, the elongate member positionable within a lower urinary tract so as to at least partially traverses a prostatic urethra. A proximal anchor, adapted to abuttingly engage portions of a bladder neck so as to at least proximally anchor the device, is supported at least indirectly by the proximal segment of said elongate member. The proximal anchor includes bladder engaging elements radially extending from the proximal segment of said elongate member, urine being freely dischargable about at least the proximal segment so as to substantially bathe the bladder neck therewith.
The present method involves the use of a urethral probe, having one tapered end with a silk thread anchored near said tapered end, at about four centimeters from the apex of the taper. The probe is inserted into the urethra while the free end of the thread is held firmly in the examiners hand. Once the probe has been inserted into the urethra to the point where the attachment of the string is exactly at the external meatus, the examiner holds only the thread, exerting a slight tension on it. (The thread represents a continuation of the unstrained urethral axis.) The patient is then asked to strain. If there is any weakness of urethral support, the instrument is deflected upward. This upward deflection causes the stationary thread to create an angle which is then read directly from a scale, wherein the degree of deflection can be interpretively read in order to determine the degree of deformity of the urethrovesical angle from its normal anatomic position.

The contractile and inhibitory effects of pollen extracts on bladder and urethral smooth muscle strips from mice and domestic pigs were investigated. In the mice bladder strips, T-60 (a water-soluble extract), GBX (an acetone-soluble extract), and CN (consisting of both T-60 and GBX at a ratio of 20:1) induced contractions at 0.1-3.0 mg/ml in a concentration-dependent manner. CN, T-60, and GBX (3.0 mg/ml) attained 27.6, 27.0, and 7.3% of the ACh response (10.0 microg/ml). The T-60 effect was antagonized noncompetitively by atropine (0.029-0.29 ng/ml). CN, T-60, and GBX inhibited noradrenaline (NA)-contracted urethral strips of mice (IC (50) values for NA 0.3 microg/ml: 0.508, 0.553, and 0.888 mg/ml, and for NA 10.0 microg/ml : 0.556, 0.705, and 0.673 mg/ml). Only GBX relaxed the normal tone of pig urethral strips. The water-soluble extract of corn ( ZEA MAYS) pollen, the main pollen of CN, contracted the mice bladder strips and inhibited NA-contracted urethral strips of mice more potently than ...

Posterior urethral valve (PUV) disorder is an obstructive developmental anomaly in the urethra and genitourinary system of male newborns. A posterior urethral valve is an obstructing membrane in the posterior male urethra as a result of abnormal in utero development. It is the most common cause of bladder outlet obstruction in male newborns. The disorder varies in degree, with mild cases presenting late due to milder symptoms. More severe cases can have renal and respiratory failure from lung underdevelopment as result of low amniotic fluid volumes, requiring intensive care and close monitoring. It occurs in about one in 8000 babies. Play media Posterior urethral obstruction was first classified by H. H. Young in 1919. The verumontanum, or mountain ridge, is a distinctive landmark in the prostatic urethra, important in the systemic division of posterior valve disorders: Type I - Most common type; due to anterior fusing of the plicae colliculi, mucosal fins extending from the bottom of the ...
In the human female, the urethra is about 1.9 inches (4.8 cm) to 2 inches (5.1 cm) long and exits the body between the clitoris and the vagina, extending from the internal to the external urethral orifice. The meatus is located below the clitoris. It is placed behind the symphysis pubis, embedded in the anterior wall of the vagina, and its direction is obliquely downward and forward; it is slightly curved with the concavity directed forward. The proximal 2/3rds is lined by transitional epithelium cells while distal 1/3rd is lined by stratified squamous epithelium cells.[10] The urethra consists of three coats: muscular, erectile, and mucous, the muscular layer being a continuation of that of the bladder. Between the superior and inferior fascia of the urogenital diaphragm, the female urethra is surrounded by the urethral sphincter. Somatic (conscious) innervation of the external urethral sphincter is supplied by the pudendal nerve. ...
Clinical Significance (Posterior Urethral Valves). mikt_1a_n.jpg and mikt_1b_n.jpg: In this preparation of a 9-month-old boy who died from renal insufficiency, the kidneys, ureters, bladder, and urethra are visible. They are used to illustrate the clinical significance of posterior urethral valves. mikt_1a_n.jpg: Close-up picture: The bladder wall is thick. Two folds are visible which originate from the colliculus. The left-sided fold continues in a swallows nest-like sail. The only partially depicted posterior urethral valves are an obstruction for voiding the bladder and lead clinically to differently severe voiding disorders and pathoanatomically to secondary changes of the bladder wall, such as hyperthrophy of the bladder wall, pseudo-diverticula of the bladder, and later to disturbances of bladder function. mikt_1b_n.jpg: Overview: The ureters are wide and tortuous. The right kidney is small and consists only of a dilated pelvis except for some residual parenchyma on the upper pole. The ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Ulceration in the proximal portion of the urethra as a cause of hematuria in horses. T2 - four cases (1978-1985).. AU - Lloyd, Kevin C K. AU - Wheat, J. D.. AU - Ryan, A. M.. AU - Matthews, M.. PY - 1989/5/1. Y1 - 1989/5/1. N2 - Sudden onset of hematuria was associated with mucosal ulceration of the proximal portion of the urethra in 1 stallion and 3 geldings. Hematuria was observed characteristically and consistently at the end of urination. Mucosal ulceration was identified endoscopically in the proximal portion of the urethra at the level of the ischial arch. Biopsy of an ulcerated area of the proximal urethra in one gelding revealed transitional cell carcinoma. Treatment regimens varied from systemic antimicrobial and/or vasoactive therapy to diversion of urinary flow via a temporary perineal urethrostomy. Hematuria resolved in 14 to 24 days (average, 20 days) after treatment was begun, except in one gelding that died of undetermined causes during an initial examination. In ...
Urodynamics. Urodynamic testing provides a quantitative assessment of the function of the lower urinary tract. Most commonly these techniques are utilized to assess urethral closure pressure via the urethral pressure profile (UPP) and bladder detrusor muscle function with a cystometrogram (CMG). These diagnostics are becoming more readily available, and the techniques have been standardized for small animal patients.. Many large referral centers and Universities in the United States use the Urovision Janus V system by Life Tech (Urolab System V. Life Tech, Inc., Stafford, TX, Website: http://www.life-tech.com/). This computerized system is fairly easy to use, but does require some training. A UPP can be performed on a male or female dog1,2, and newer studies have documented normal values in the female cat.3 Unfortunately, commercial catheters are not available for male cats at this time.. The Urethral Pressure Profile. Indications for a UPP. A UPP is used to evaluate the pressure along the ...
During transcutaneous mechanical nerve stimulation in spinal cord injured men an increase in pressure was observed in the external urethral sphincter along with an increase in bladder capacity. In a subsequent study it was demonstrated that TMNS in women could induce pressure increment of the external urethral sphincter. A pilot study have since shown that after 6 weeks of stimulation 24 out of 33 women suffering from urinary stress incontinence were able to contract their pelvic floor muscles and had become free of symptoms. Another pilot study has shown promising effect on the overactive bladder syndrome.. The present study aims to treat urinary incontinence and includes 3 groups of patients with 40 patients in each group: Women suffering from urinary stress incontinence, women suffering from urge incontinence and men suffering from urinary incontinence after a prostatectomy. A medical vibrator is used and in each group the subjects will be randomized to active treatment or placebo ...
Posterior urethral valves (or PUV) are an abnormality of the urethra, which is the tube that drains urine from the bladder to the outside of the body for elimination. The abnormality occurs when the urethral valves, which are small leaflets of tissue, have a narrow, slit-like opening that partially impedes urine outflow. Reverse flow occurs and can affect all of the urinary tract organs including the urethra, bladder, ureters, and kidneys. The organs of the urinary tract become engorged with urine and swell, causing tissue and cell damage. The degree of urinary outflow obstruction will determine the severity of the urinary tract problems.. ...
Relief of urethral obstruction is achieved by heat ablation of prostatic tissue by an ablation electrode passed within the urethra to a position in the prostate near the point of urethral obstruction. The electrode is coupled to a high frequency power supply to ablatively heat the urethra and the prostatic tissue near the urethra. Image guidance of the electrode placement is monitored by an imaging device. The temperature of the tissue is sensed at the electrode to control the high frequency heating energy and ablation process. The electrode has a blunt tip to help prevent piercing of the wall of the urethra during insertion of the electrode into the urethra through the penis and the positioning of the electrode tip near to the point of urethral obstruction. Several forms of electrodes, apparatus, and methods accommodate the specific objectives.
What Is Feline Urethral Obstruction?. Urine flows from the kidneys down the ureters and into the bladder, where it is stored until it is released through the urethra. A urethral obstruction occurs when the urethra becomes blocked, preventing urination. There are many possible reasons for a blockage, including urinary stones, mucus or sediment plugs, blood clots, tumors, and scarring. Although any animal is susceptible to a urethral obstruction, male cats are at greater risk for urethral blockage than dogs or female cats because their urethras are narrow and long, making them easier to plug. A urethral obstruction is usually caused by a buildup of solid material in the bladder that is unable to fit through the urinary opening. Urinary sediment (crystals), mucus, and inflammatory cells can accumulate in the urine and form a urethral plug. In addition, bladder stones (alone or in combination with other material) may get caught in the urethra on their way out of the body. Urethral obstruction can ...

Posterior urethral valves are a problem with the urethra in a boy. The urethra is the tube that drains urine from the bladder to the outside of the body. Posterior urethral valves are small leaflets of tissue in the urethra. They have a narrow, slit-like opening. The valves partly block urine flow because not enough urine can get through them to leave the body. This causes reverse flow of urine. This can harm the urethra, bladder, ureters, and kidneys. They become too full with urine and swell. This leads to tissue damage. Posterior urethral valves are the most common cause of severe urinary tract blockage in children ...
You will be asked to wear a hospital gown and lie on your back on an X-ray table. Your genital area will be cleaned and draped with sterile towels. Men may be given a lead shield that covers their genitals to protect them from radiation. But womens ovaries cannot be shielded without blocking the view of the bladder.. A part of your genital area is cleaned with soap on a cotton swab. Then a soft, bendable rubber tube called a urinary catheter is inserted into your bladder, usually by a nurse. The tube is first coated with a slippery jelly and then pushed gently through the opening of the urethra (at the end of the penis for men and near the opening of the vagina for women).. CLICK & SEE. A sterile flexible cystoscope in an operating theatre. A catheter will be placed through your urethra and into your bladder. Contrast material will then slowly be injected through the catheter until your bladder is full.. You will feel some pressure while the tube slides into the urethra. Once it is in place, a ...
Spongy urethra (orpenile urethra):Runs along the length of the penis on its ventral (underneath) surface. It is about 15-16 cm in length, and travels through the corpus spongiosum. The ducts from the urethral gland (gland of Littre) enter here. The openings of the bulbourethral glands are also found here. Some textbooks will subdivide the spongy urethra into two parts, the bulbous and pendulous urethra. The urethral lumen runs effectively parallel to the penis, except at the narrowest point, the external urethral meatus, where it is vertical. This produces a spiral stream of urine and has the effect of cleaning the external urethral meatus. The lack of an equivalent mechanism in the female urethra partly explains why urinary tract infections occur so much more frequently in females ...
If we suspect bladder neck incompetence in a patient of posterior urethral injury, we go ahead and perform anastomotic urethroplasty first and many patients may not need surgery for incompetence. In case, the patient is incontinent after successful urethroplasty, we plan bladder neck repair at the end of one year. Through a midline infra umbilical incision the bladder is opened vertically. This incision is carried through the bladder neck into the prostatic urethra. The white firm scar at the bladder neck is excised. The bladder neck is repaired in the anatomical fashion with absorbable sutures. A Foley urethral catheter is kept for 3 weeks. Results of this anatomical bladder neck repair are very encouraging ...

Pediatric urologist Ming-Hsien Wang recalls the case of a newborn boy with a peeing problem - no urine output - that wasnt picked up the first few days of life. Meanwhile, his serum creatinine levels kept going up and up, signaling possible kidney malfunction or even failure. Being born in a community hospital didnt help, as there was no neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) for close monitoring or nephrology service to consult. He was transferred to the Hopkins Childrens where Wang pinpointed the problem pretty quickly.. We started the workup and saw on ultrasound signs of urine backup, thickening of the bladder wall, dilated urethra, and hydronephrosis, or swelling of the kidney, Wang says. The usual cause in such cases, especially with boys, is posterior urethral valve.. The condition, Wang explains, is an obstructive membrane in the urethra that occurs in utero exclusively in males with an incidence of between 1/5000 to 1/8000. Posterior urethral valve, or PUV, varies in degree, though ...
According to the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK), women are twice as likely as men to suffer from involuntary leakage. The most common causes of stress incontinence among women are pregnancy and childbirth, especially having multiple vaginal deliveries. During pregnancy and childbirth, the sphincter and pelvic muscles stretch out and are weakened. Older age and conditions that cause a chronic cough can also cause stress incontinence. This condition can also be a side effect of pelvic surgery.. Some women only suffer from stress incontinence during the week before they get their period. The NIDDK explains that estrogen drops during this phase of the menstrual cycle, which can weaken the urethra. This is not common though.. Among men, prostate surgery is a common cause of stress incontinence. The prostate gland surrounds the male urethra, and its removal can result in the loss of support of the urethra. Other risk factors for stress incontinence ...
Meatal stenosis is narrowing of the urethral meatus, which is the opening of the urethra at the tip of the penis. It can occur because of repeated infection, phimosis or lichen sclerosis (BXO). Options for treatment of discreet, short strictures of urethal meatus are meatotomy or meatoplasty.. Meatotomy is incision of the urethral opening with subsequent placement of sutures at the edges.. Meatoplasty is augmentation of urethral meatus using either buccal mucosa or preputial skin flap.. Before going ahead with these procedures proximal urethra should be accessed for any stricture.. ...
Abstract Context Membranous urethral length (MUL) measured prior to radical prostatectomy (RP) has been identified as a factor that is associated with the recovery of continence following surgery. Objective To undertake a systematic review and meta-analysis of all studies reporting the effect of MUL on the recovery of continence following RP. Evidence acquisition A comprehensive search of PubMed, EMBASE, and Scopus databases up to September 2015 was performed. Thirteen studies comprising one randomized controlled trial and 12 cohort studies were selected for inclusion. Evidence synthesis Four studies (1738 patients) that reported hazard ratio results. Every extra millimeter (mm) of MUL was associated with a faster return to continence (hazard ratio: 1.05; 95% confidence interval [CI]: 1.02-1.08, p
ABSTRACT: this meta-analysis study will evaluate the incidence of urethral stricture as a successfull parameter in the management of PFUI through early realignment, compared with delayed urethroplasty. Long-term complications such as erectile dysfunction and incontinence on both methods will also be evaluated. Methods: online literature was sourced from Pubmed, Embase, Cochrane, and Google Scholar. The incidence of stricture was evaluated from the entire study group of ER and DU. Stricture of the urethra is diagnosed by the symptoms such as the obstruction that felt by the patient, uroflowmetry examination, and urine residual post micturition that supported by urethrography examination at regular interval. In some cases the incidence of stricture also diagnosed by urethroscopy. The patient is assessed as not having stricture when it is no longer needed to do urethral dilatation or advanced urethrotomy. The rate of incontinence was assessed subjectively from the patients complaints. The ...
The opening to the urethra (the tube that empties the bladder and carries urine out of the body) is not very easy to spot.

The other day, a guy named Mike wrote in to ask me a rare but important question:. Your site talks about anal warts but makes no mention of urethral warts. Is diagnosis and treatment a focus in the report. Specifically urethral warts. All I can say it there is itching and I can not seem to get ANY cooperation from my local healthcare facilities. I am really only interested if your report covers successful treatment for urethral warts at this time. If it does not thank you for your time.. I say this is a rare question because most people Ive talked to over the past 10+ years of helping people cure their genital warts do NOT get warts in or on their urethra (or pee hole in case you prefer a less technical term) - just like inside the mouth, the urethra area is a pretty rare area for genital warts to form. However it can and does happen.. Anyway, I wrote back and responded to the gentleman saying this:. Yes people in the past have used my report methods to successfully treat warts in the ...

Alpha-adrenergic agonist medications are the most effective therapy for USMI. These drugs enhance urethral closure via direct stimulation of α-adrenergic receptors on urethral smooth muscle. They are effective in 85 - 90% of dogs with USMI. Side effects can include: hyperactivity, hypertension, rarely anorexia, and weight loss. Alpha-adrenergic agonists are contraindicated in patients with hypertension and should be used with caution in patients with glaucoma, prostatic hypertrophy, or diabetes mellitus.. Phenylpropanolamine (PPA) is the most commonly used α-adrenergic agonist for UI. The veterinary licensed product, Proin, is readily available. The typical starting dose is 1.1-1.5 mg/kg PO q 8 hours although even once daily dosing can make a significant difference in dogs with UI. The dose should be tapered to the lowest effective dose. It may only need to be given at night when the primary complaint is nocturia. Ephedrine and pseudoephedrine are also α-adrenergic agonists but have found to ...
In this study, we used hUCs taken from the ureter during routine surgery. These cells are fairly similar to cells in the proximal part of the urethra, as the whole urinary tract except the distal part of urethra is covered by the urothelium and therefore these cells can be used in future urethral reconstruction applications [15]. Urothelial cells have also been widely studied in vitro for urothelial tissue engineering purposes; further, Fossum et al. [16] used bladder urothelial cells for clinical urethra reconstruction. Moreover, urethral stratified squamous epithelial cells could not be used for this since it would have been unethical to take tissue from the urethra because the urethra is susceptible to scarring [17].. The identity of hUCs was confirmed using FACS analysis. The markers CD44, CD73, CD105, CD133 and Keratin 8/18 were selected for this study as they have been previously used to characterize hUCs. Our characterization results were consistent with previous results for urothelial ...

AU - Chen, Jia Jin Janson. AU - Cheng, Chen Li. AU - DeGroat, William C.. PY - 2004/3. Y1 - 2004/3. N2 - Two main functions of lower urinary tract, storage and periodic elimination of urine, are regulated by a complex neural control system located in the brain and spinal cord which coordinates the activity of the reservoir (urinary bladder) and the outlet (bladder neck, urethra and urethral sphincter). These organs are regulated by three sets of peripheral nerves: sacral parasympathetic (pelvic nerves), thoracolumber sympathetic nerves (hypogastric nerves) which innervate the bladder trigone and prostate, and sacral somatic nerves (pudendal nerves) which innervate external urethral sphincter (EUS). The relationship between the bladder and EUS is controlled by reflex pathways in the lumbosacral spinal cord that are ...
The obligate human pathogen, Neisseria gonorrhoeae, has evolved mechanisms to manipulate the apoptotic machinery in human epithelial cells in favor of host niche adaptation. In the present research, I investigated the apoptotic effect of N. gonorrhoeae on transduced human urethral epithelial cells (THUEC) and the underlying mechanism of apoptosis modulation. Flow cytometric analysis showed that gonococcal infection conferred an anti-apoptotic effect in early infection, but induced apoptosis during prolonged infection periods in THUEC. Intracellular gonococci were required to provide the anti-apoptotic effect. Furthermore, immunoblotting analysis of the mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) pathways mapped the apoptosis resistance to a signaling cascade involving epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR), extracellular signal-regulated kinases (ERK), and Bim/Bad, in which the inhibition of ERK activation by N. gonorrhoeae contributed to the anti-apoptotic effect on THUEC. A N. gonorrhoeae minD ...
Do not collect urethral specimens until at least one hour after urinating. Collection directly from male urethral discharge is desirable. Collect anorectal specimens from the crypts just inside the anal ring; anoscopy useful. Prostatic fluid yields fewer positives than does urethral culture. Endocervix: Swab endocervical canal. Avoid contaminating swab with vaginal secretions. Cultures from the urethra or vagina are indicated from females when endocervical culture is not possible. Urethra: Strip the urethra toward the orifice to express exudate. Use a sterile swab to obtain the specimen. Vagina: Use a speculum, moistened only with warm water, not lubricant. Obtain a specimen from the posterior vaginal vault or from the vaginal orifice if the hymen is intact. Swab samples should be rolled over the surface of the Jembec medium. ...
Malignant melanoma (melanoma) is a tumor of melanocytes that usually presents as cutaneous lesions. While melanoma can infrequently appear as a primary tumor elsewhere in the body, it is extremely rare in the urethra and even rarer as amelanotic malignant melanoma. We report the case of a 66-year-old male who presented with painless gross hematuria and lower urinary tract obstructive symptoms in the recent 2 weeks prior to his visit to our clinic. History and physical examination, including external genital examination, abdominopelvic sonography, and urine culture, were not conclusive. Cystourethroscopy revealed a creamy pink fragile mass located in the anterior proximal urethra that extended to the mid portion. Pathological examination of this lesion confirmed the diagnosis of amelanotic malignant melanoma using immunohistochemistry. Radical cystourethrectomy with ileal conduit was subsequently conducted. Although this tumor is extremely rare, urologists and pathologists should consider malignant

Urinary symptoms are not always caused by the prostate and may well be the manifestation of problems in another organs such as the bladder or urethra. Although the exact cause of the discomfort is not always found, symptoms may be secondary to a combination of prostate growth as well as an increase in muscle tone of the bladder neck and prostate. As it grows, the prostate compresses the urethra (the tube that passes through the prostate and is responsible for draining urine from the bladder). This gradual compression of the urethra may cause difficulty in urination. In the initial stages of BPH, the bladder muscle (detrusor) can force the urine through the urethra. However, if the growth of the prostate continues, the bladder muscle becomes stronger, thicker and more sensitive.. The result is a feeling of urinary urgency. Getting up during the night to urinate is an indirect symptom of prostate growth. Some patients may find themselves in the situation of not being able to urinate (a condition ...

Youre seeing a trauma patient, probably a transfer from somewhere else. Either they told you there may have been some blood at the tip of the urethra, or maybe you see it smearing the outside of a urinary catheter thats already in place! How do you proceed from here?. First, try not to get into that situation. Make sure that everyone on your team knows that gross blood at the meatus, male or female, means urethral injury until proven otherwise. If its not gross blood, it could be that the patient was incontinent and has hematuria from other causes. The fear with passing a catheter across a urethral injury is that it may convert a partial tear to a complete one. Reconstruction and complications from the latter are far more serious.. But the catheter is there. What to do?. First, leave the catheter in place. You must assume that the injury is present, and you need to rule it in or rule it out in order to decide what to do with the catheter. If the injury is not really there, then you can ...
Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are bacterial infections in the urethra, bladder, or kidneys. They develop when bacteria find their way to the opening of the urethra and begin to multiply, then travel up the urethra into the bladder or the kidney. UTIs are a serious health problem that affects millions of people each year, and women are especially prone to UTIs, because of the proximity of the anus to the urethra.

Hello, Im new here and not sure where to start. I just had a cystoscope about 2 weeks ago by my urologist in his office. He said I had trigonitis which I think is bladder inflaming. He also said this is from my urethra being to narrow, and all of the urine not coming out like its supposed to. He also so pylops and showed me on the screen while he was doing the cysto. He did this same test about 5 years ago and saw the inflammation in my bladder then. He wanted me to have a outpatient

California plumbers union opposes water-conserving urinals. If California plumbers have anything to do with it, youll be peeing in water til the day you die.
