Urethra: 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.Stents: Devices that provide support for tubular structures that are being anastomosed or for body cavities during skin grafting.Drug-Eluting Stents: Stents that are covered with materials that are embedded with chemicals that are gradually released into the surrounding milieu.Urethral Diseases: Pathological processes involving the URETHRA.Urethral Neoplasms: Cancer or tumors of the URETHRA.

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.Perineum: 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. The surface area is between the VULVA and the anus in the female, and between the SCROTUM and the anus in the male.Coated Materials, Biocompatible: Biocompatible materials usually used in dental and bone implants that enhance biologic fixation, thereby increasing the bond strength between the coated material and bone, and minimize possible biological effects that may result from the implant itself.Urinary Incontinence, Stress: Involuntary discharge of URINE as a result of physical activities that increase abdominal pressure on the URINARY BLADDER without detrusor contraction or overdistended bladder. The subtypes are classified by the degree of leakage, descent and opening of the bladder neck and URETHRA without bladder contraction, and sphincter deficiency.Paclitaxel: A cyclodecane isolated from the bark of the Pacific yew tree, TAXUS BREVIFOLIA.

The pelvic diaphragm lies just below the pelvic aperture (outlet) and separates the pelvic cavity from the PERINEUM. It extends between the PUBIC BONE anteriorly and the COCCYX posteriorly.Retrospective Studies: Studies used to test etiologic hypotheses in which inferences about an exposure to putative causal factors are derived from data relating to characteristics of persons under study or to events or experiences in their past. The essential feature is that some of the persons under study have the disease or outcome of interest and their characteristics are compared with those of unaffected persons.Urinary Bladder, Neurogenic: Dysfunction of the URINARY BLADDER due to disease of the central or peripheral nervous system pathways involved in the control of URINATION.

  • In preferred embodiments, a biocompatible sheeted material is wrapped around a retaining wire to produce a compacted configuration, and the retaining wire is rotated to maintain the compacted configuration during insertion of the stent into a patient. (patentgenius.com)
  • The spiral or corkscrew channel width may be varied along the length of the strut to control elution rate and/or flexibility of the stent. (google.com)
  • Drug-eluting stents - These stents are coated with medications that prevent inflammation and restenosis of the artery on a long term basis. (news-medical.net)
  • These changes, along with an already short urethra (approximately 3-4 cm in females) and difficulty with hygiene due to a distended pregnant belly, help make UTIs the most common bacterial infections during pregnancy. (medscape.com)
  • Some studies suggest that the extraluminal route may be of greater relative importance in women because of the short urethra and its close proximity to the anus ( 17 ). (cdc.gov)
  • It's not possible to produce stents with such small dimensions using conventional methods, which is why De Bernardis approached the Multi-Scale Robotics Lab at ETH Zurich. (eurekalert.org)
  • De Bernardis approached researchers at ETH Zürich to see if they could develop a method to produce stents that could sit within extremely narrow channels. (mddionline.com)
  • The plurality of coils are rotatable around the guide rail to cause the pointed end of the coils to penetrate the graft material and the adjacent tissue in contact with the stent graft to sew the stent graft to the attachment site. (google.com)
  • Coils or J-shaped hooks at either end of the stent keep it place so that it cannot drift once it has been inserted. (wisegeek.com)
  • Permanent stents are often metal coils, which are inserted into the male urethra. (wikipedia.org)
  • It would be less damaging to the kidneys, however, if a stent could be inserted to widen the constriction while the foetus is still in the womb. (eurekalert.org)
  • A method for using stent which is a hollow, cylindrical structure made of a synthetic substance which becomes plastic and malleable in a temperature range from 45 to 75 Celsius. (google.com.au)
