Renal function in high-output heart failure in rats: role of endogenous natriuretic peptides. (1/693)

The physiologic and pathophysiologic importance of natriuretic peptides (NP) has been imperfectly defined. The diminished renal responses to exogenous atrial NP in heart failure have led to the perception that the endogenous NP system might be less effective and thus contribute to renal sodium retention in heart failure. This study tests the hypothesis that in experimental heart failure, the renal responses to an acute volume load are still dependent on the NP system. The specific antagonist HS-142-1 was used to block the effects of NP in a model of high-output heart failure induced by an aortocaval shunt. Plasma cGMP levels and renal cGMP excretion were significantly lower in shunted and sham-operated rats receiving HS-142-1, compared with vehicle-treated controls, indicating effective blockade of guanylate cyclase-coupled receptors. Baseline sodium excretion and urine flow rate were lower in HS-142-1-treated sham-operated rats (15.2+/-1.1 microl/min versus 27.5+/-3.1 microl/min with vehicle, P < 0.001) and in HS-142-1-treated shunted rats (8.1+/-1.3 microl/min versus 19.9+/-2.3 microl/min with vehicle, P < 0.001). After an acute volume load, the diuretic and natriuretic responses were attenuated by HS-142-1 in control and shunted rats. The renal responses were reduced by HS-142-1 to a significantly greater extent in shunted rats than in control rats. HS-142-1 did not induce any significant systemic hemodynamic changes in either group, nor did it alter renal blood flow. However, the GFR in HS-142-1-treated shunted rats was lower than that in vehicle-treated shunted rats, both at baseline (0.6+/-0.3 ml/min versus 2.1+/-0.4 ml/min with vehicle, P < 0.05) and after an acute volume load (1.2+/-0.4 ml/min versus 2.6+/-0.4 ml/min with vehicle, P = 0.01), whereas no such effect was observed in control rats. These data indicate that the maintenance of basal renal function and the responses to acute volume loading are dependent on the NP system. The NP seem to be of particular importance for the maintenance of GFR in this model of experimental heart failure. These observations provide new insights into the importance of the renal NP system in heart failure.  (+info)

Utility of ultrasound of the upper urinary tract in elderly men with indicators of obstructive symptoms or abnormal flow: how often can silent hydronephrosis be detected in general practice? (2/693)

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: While the prevalence of hydronephrosis is very low in obduction studies, a prevalence of 3-13% is reported for patients with an obstruction who are listed for prostatectomy. In order to evaluate the usefulness of transabdominal ultrasound in primary care, we determined the occurrence of hydronephrosis in males with symptoms of urinary obstruction in a general practice setting. METHOD: A micturition questionnaire (a modified Boyarsky) was sent to all men of 55 years or more who were registered in 10 general practices in Maastricht, and was followed by an examination at their general practice. Men with obstructive symptoms and/or with a free-flow abnormality were examined in the hospital with transabdominal ultrasound in order to detect dilatation of the upper urinary tract. This ultrasound was repeated approximately 15 months later. RESULTS: At the first measurement, none of the examined men (n = 178) had hydronephrosis, and this was still the case for 94 men 15 months later. CONCLUSION: Renal ultrasound is not necessary in general practice for men with uncomplicated obstructive complaints.  (+info)

Central administration of [Phe1psi(CH2-NH)Gly2]nociceptin(1-13)-NH2 and orphanin FQ/nociceptin (OFQ/N) produce similar cardiovascular and renal responses in conscious rats. (3/693)

In vitro studies have shown that [Phe1Psi(CH2-NH)Gly2]OFQ/N(1-13)-NH2 (referred to as [FG]OFQ/N(1-13)-NH2) is the first selective antagonist to prevent the binding of the endogenous ligand orphanin FQ/Nociceptin (OFQ/N) at the orphan opioid-like receptor. In the present study, we examined the potential changes in cardiovascular and renal function produced by the i.c.v. injection of [FG]OFQ/N(1-13)-NH2 in conscious Sprague-Dawley rats. In conscious rats, i.c.v. injection of [FG]OFQ/N(1-13)-NH2 produced a marked and sustained decrease in heart rate, mean arterial pressure, and urinary sodium excretion and a profound increase in urine flow rate (i.e., a water diuresis). The cardiovascular and renal excretory responses produced by i.c.v. [FG]OFQ/N(1-13)-NH2 were dose dependent and were similar in pattern but of longer duration than responses evoked by i.c.v. OFQ/N. In other animals, the i.c.v. injection of OFQ/N(1-13)-NH2, a potential metabolite of [FG]OFQ/N(1-13)-NH2, produced changes in cardiovascular and renal function that were comparable to those evoked by i.c.v. [FG]OFQ/N(1-13)-NH2. In contrast, OFQ/N(2-17), a fragment of OFQ/N [OFQ/N(1-17)], was inactive when administered centrally. Finally, studies were performed to determine whether [FG]OFQ/N(1-13)-NH2 may be an antagonist at the orphan opioid-like receptor receptor when administered centrally at a dose that alone was inactive. In these studies, i.c.v. pretreatment of animals with low-dose [FG]OFQ/N(1-13)-NH2 failed to prevent the cardiovascular and renal excretory response to i.c.v. OFQ/N. Although [FG]OFQ/N(1-13)-NH2 is reported to be an antagonist of the OFQ/N receptor in vitro, these findings indicate that this compound has agonist activity similar to that of the endogenous ligand OFQ/N when administered centrally in vivo.  (+info)

Comparison of two aquaretic drugs (niravoline and OPC-31260) in cirrhotic rats with ascites and water retention. (4/693)

kappa-Opioid receptor agonists (niravoline) or nonpeptide antidiuretic hormone (ADH) V2 receptor antagonists (OPC-31260) possess aquaretic activity in cirrhosis; however, there is no information concerning the effects induced by the chronic administration of these drugs under this condition. To compare the renal and hormonal effects induced by the long-term oral administration of niravoline, OPC-31260, or vehicle, urine volume, urinary osmolality, sodium excretion, and urinary excretion of aldosterone (ALD) and ADH were measured in basal conditions and for 10 days after the daily oral administration of niravoline, OPC-31260, or vehicle to cirrhotic rats with ascites and water retention. Creatinine clearance, serum osmolality, ADH mRNA expression, and systemic hemodynamics were also measured at the end of the study. Niravoline increased water excretion, peripheral resistance, serum osmolality, and sodium excretion and reduced creatinine clearance, ALD and ADH excretion, and mRNA expression of ADH. OPC-31260 also increased water metabolism and sodium excretion and reduced urinary ALD, although the aquaretic effect was only evident during the first 2 days, and no effects on serum osmolality, renal filtration, and systemic hemodynamics were observed. Therefore, both agents have aquaretic efficacy, but the beneficial therapeutic effects of the long-term oral administration of niravoline are more consistent than those of OPC-31260 in cirrhotic rats with ascites and water retention.  (+info)

Congenital kyphosis in myelomeningocele. The effect of cordotomy on bladder function. (5/693)

To determine the effect of cordotomy on the function of the bladder during surgical correction of congenital kyphosis in myelomeningocele, we reviewed 13 patients who had this procedure between 1981 and 1996. The mean age of the patients at operation was 8.9 years (3.7 to 16) and the mean follow-up was 4.8 years (1.3 to 10.8). Bladder function before and after operation was assessed clinically and quantitatively by urodynamics. The mean preoperative kyphosis was 117 degrees (52 to 175) and decreased to 49 degrees (1 to 89) immediately after surgery. At the latest follow-up, a mean correction of 52% had been achieved. Only one patient showed deterioration in bladder function after operation. Eight out of the nine patients who had urodynamic assessment had improvement in bladder capacity and compliance, and five showed an increase in urethral pressure. One patient developed a spastic bladder and required subsequent surgical intervention. Cordotomy, at or below the level of the kyphosis, allows excellent correction of the structural deformity.  (+info)

Voiding function study with ultrasound in male and female neonates. (6/693)

BACKGROUND: The neonatal period has been characterized as a time when males have a much higher incidence of urinary infection and severe ureteral reflux than females. However, little information about the voiding function in the neonatal period is available. METHODS: The bladder urine volumes, before and after voiding, and urinary flow rates were determined with the use of noninvasive voiding-provocation maneuvers and ultrasound in the apparently normal neonates. RESULTS: There was no significant difference in the prevoid bladder urine volume between the two sexes. After they were stimulated to enhance the tension of their abdominal wall musculature, 65 of 118 females (55.1%) and 64 of 115 males (55.7%) voided. The voiding was observed in 94 (81.0%) of the 116 neonates who had had a prevoid volume above 12 ml. The residual urine expressed as a percentage of the prevoid volume was significantly higher in the males (median, 12.0% in males vs. 3.0% in females, P < 0.01), with the values being above 20% in 26 (41%) of the 64 males compared with 10 (15%) of the 65 females (P < 0.01). Urinary flow rates, determined in 52 neonates, were significantly smaller in males than in females (mean +/- SD, 2.6 +/- 0.9 g/second vs. 3.8 +/- 1.3 g/second, respectively, P < 0.001). CONCLUSION: This voiding function study with ultrasound using noninvasive voiding-provocation maneuvers successfully revealed that male neonates have a larger residual urine volume and smaller urinary flow rates than female neonates. This study should be useful for the diagnosis of voiding dysfunction in children with abnormal urinary symptoms.  (+info)

Expression of the polymeric immunoglobulin receptor and excretion of secretory IgA in the postischemic kidney. (7/693)

The humoral mucosal immune response of the kidney involves the transport of secretory IgA (S-IgA) through renal epithelial cells by the polymeric immunoglobulin receptor (pIgR). The pIgR is cleaved and released as free secretory component (FSC) or attached to IgA (S-IgA). We examined the effects of an ischemic model of acute renal failure (ARF) on the expression of pIgR and the secretion of FSC and S-IgA in the urine. Kidney pIgR mRNA levels decreased in ischemic animals by 55% at 4 h and by 85% at 72 h compared with controls. pIgR protein expression in the medullary thick ascending limb (TAL) decreased within 24 h and was nearly undetectable by 72 h. Urinary S-IgA and FSC concentrations decreased by 60% between days 3 and 6. pIgR mRNA and pIgR protein in the kidney returned to approximately 90% of control levels and urinary FSC and S-IgA concentrations returned to approximately 55% of control levels by day 7. We demonstrate that ischemic ARF decreases renal mucosal S-IgA transport in vivo and may contribute to the increased incidence of urinary tract infections.  (+info)

Effects of ZD6169, a K(ATP) channel opener, on the micturition reflex in the rat. (8/693)

The effects of ZD6169, a new ATP-sensitive potassium channel opener, on reflex urinary bladder activity were evaluated in urethane-anesthetized female Wistar rats. Continuous transvesical slow infusion cystometrograms (0.04 ml/min) were performed in untreated, capsaicin-pretreated (125 mg/kg s.c., 4 days before experiments) and capsaicin vehicle-pretreated rats. Intravesical infusion of ZD6169 in concentrations of 6, 15, 30, and 300 nM for 2 h at each concentration increased the intercontraction interval and pressure threshold for voiding in a concentration-dependent manner in untreated and vehicle-pretreated rats but not in capsaicin-pretreated animals. The effects appeared within 30 min after administration. ZD6169 did not alter baseline bladder pressure, duration of contractions, or the peak pressure during voiding. Glibenclamide (20 mg/kg i.v.) reversed the effects of ZD6169 (30 nM). During transvesical cystometrograms performed at a fast rate (0.21 ml/min), ZD6169 in concentrations between 6 and 300 nM did not alter the intercontraction interval or pressure threshold for voiding. ZD6169 produced smaller and more variable effects during slow transurethral cystometrograms. Capsaicin, a C-fiber afferent neurotoxin, administered s.c. 4 days before the experiment, produced similar changes and also eliminated the effect of ZD6169. These data suggest that ZD6169 raises the threshold for activation of C-fiber mechanoreceptors in the bladder wall and thereby increases the bladder volume for inducing reflex voiding.  (+info)

Sacral nerve stimulation, or neuromodulation, has been shown to restore voiding in women with a specific type of urinary retention that is attributed to urethral sphincter overactivity. The therapy has gained popularity in this and other voiding dysfunctions, but its mechanism of action remains unexplained. This thesis explores the effects of neuromodulation on women with urinary retention. It incorporates a urodynamic study of the effect of neuromodulation on bladder and urethral (peripheral) function, a functional brain imaging PET (Positron Emission Tomography) study of cerebral (central) effects, and a review of the long-term efficacy of the technique. The urodynamics (including urethral pressure profilometry, cystometry, and sphincter electromyography) showed evidence of persistent urethral overactivity despite successful restoration of micturition. Together with the cystometric findings, this suggests that neuromodulation may facilitate voiding in this group by increasing detrusor ...

The uroflowmetry test measures the rate of urine flow during urination. Results are usually given in milliliters per second (mL/sec). This test is sometimes used to evaluate the impact benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) has on urine flow or to monitor the effect of treatment. Your doctor and studies about treatment for BPH may talk about this test as peak urine flow rate. Many treatments for BPH can increase the peak urine flow rate for men.. A urine flow rate that is normal or nearly normal in a man with BPH may indicate that the bladder has become stronger to compensate for the partially blocked urine flow.. A uroflowmetry test is called a pressure flow study when used with a pressure-recording catheter in the bladder. Pressure studies may help distinguish between urinary symptoms caused by blockage and those caused by a problem affecting the bladder muscles or nerves.. ...
Cystometry, or cystometrogram, with a pressure flow study is part of urodynamic testing (or UDS). These tests measure how well the bladder functions. They help diagnose problems related to urine control. These can be incontinence, difficulty emptying the bladder, overactive bladder, obstructions or frequent infections.
The functions of the lower urinary tract, to store and periodically release urine, are dependent on the activity of smooth and striated muscles in the urinary bladder, urethra, and external urethral sphincter. This activity is in turn controlled by neural circuits in the brain, spinal cord, and peripheral ganglia. ...

Investigations of micromotion characteristics of bladder wall strips and pressure wave phenomena in total bladders in vitro and in vivo indicate that micromotion phenomena occur in the bladder wall. Local contractions can occur without an increase in tension or pressure, because other parts are in antiphase. Local contractions stretch surrounding tissues, which can stimulate fast stretch receptors. Synchronisation of these micromotion phenomena appears to be possible. Hence, above threshold levels urge can theoretically occur, even in the absence of a pressure increase. This hypothesis could explain the weak relation between urge and pressure. The distinction between motor and sensory urge could be artifactual based on a misunderstanding of fundamental bladder wall processes. ...
Patient Global Impression of Improvement is a patient-reported measure of perceived improvement that is obtained by asking study participants, How is your urinary tract condition now, as compared with how it was before you received treatment for your urinary leakage? Responses are on a 7-point scale from 1 meaning very much better to 7 meaning very much worse. Values of very much better (1) or much better (2) were considered to have perceived improvement according to this criteria. Values of 3 or greater were not (e.g. a little better, no change, a little worse, much worse or very much worse). This instrument correlates with the frequency of incontinence episodes, pad tests, and quality of life as it relates to incontinence ...
OBJECTIVE: To determine the congruence between self-reported and objective data on incontinence, voided volume (VV) and voiding frequency (VF), in a prospective study of treatment of functional urinary incontinence (UI) due to urge syndrome or dysfunctional voiding in children. PATIENTS AND METHODS: In all, 202 children, enrolled in the European Bladder Dysfunction Study (EBDS), provided self-reported data on UI, VV and VF, before and after treatment, with validated questionnaires and 72-h voiding diaries. Objective data were obtained with uroflowmetry and a 12-h pad test, also before and after treatment. Questionnaires and diaries were checked and scored by a urotherapist, at scheduled office visits that were combined with uroflowmetry. RESULTS: At entry, parents under-reported UI on the questionnaires in 45% of cases, compared with the urotherapists scores, and the 12-h pad test sensitivity for UI was only 64% (95% confidence interval 55-73%). The voiding diaries had inconsistent entries on ...

Uroflowmetry is a simple, diagnostic screening procedure used to calculate the flow rate of urine over time. The test is noninvasive (the skin is not pierced), and may be used to assess bladder and sphincter function.. Uroflowmetry is performed by having a person urinate into a special funnel that is connected to a measuring instrument. The measuring instrument calculates the amount of urine, rate of flow in seconds, and length of time until completion of the void. This information is converted into a graph and interpreted by a doctor. The information helps evaluate function of the lower urinary tract or help determine if there is an obstruction of normal urine outflow.. During normal urination, the initial urine stream starts slowly, but almost immediately speeds up until the bladder is nearly empty. The urine flow then slows again until the bladder is empty. In persons with a urinary tract obstruction, this pattern of flow is altered, and increases and decreases more gradually. The ...

Summary Lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) are a common health problem causing considerable inconvenience to many women. Moreover, they are non-specific and can be caused by a large number of disorders. A thorough evaluation, including physical examination, imaging studies, and urodynamic investigation of the lower urinary tract, is crucial for appropriate management of bothersome symptoms. Ultrasonography has the advantages of non-invasiveness, reproducibility, no radiation exposure, and low cost. With the use of a high-resolution transducer, pelvic organs can be demonstrated clearly on ultrasonography. In addition, three-dimensional sonography provides a clear demonstration of the spatial orientation of the female lower urinary tract. Both color and power Doppler scanning can not only reveal the vascular flow in pelvic organs, but also demonstrate urinary flow. Ultrasonography has dual functions in the management of female LUTS: diagnosis and
Background: Urodynamic studies are commonly performed in women before surgery for stress urinary incontinence, but there is no good evidence that they improve outcomes. Methods: We performed a multicenter, randomized, noninferiority trial involving women with uncomplicated, demonstrable stress urinary incontinence to compare outcomes after preoperative office evaluation and urodynamic tests or evaluation only. The primary outcome was treatment success at 12 months, defined as a reduction in the score on the Urogenital Distress Inventory of 70% or more and a response of �much better� or �very much better� on the Patient Global Impression of Improvement. The predetermined noninferiority margin was 11 percentage points. Results: A total of 630 women were randomly assigned to undergo office evaluation with urodynamic tests or evaluation only (315 per group); the proportion in whom treatment was successful was 76.9% in the urodynamic-testing group versus 77.2% in the ...

AU - Corwin, Michael T. PY - 2018/2/1. Y1 - 2018/2/1. N2 - Purpose: To determine normal bladder wall thickness on CT in patients without bladder disease. Materials and methods: Four hundred and nineteen patients presenting for trauma with normal CTs of the abdomen and pelvis were included in our retrospective study. Bladder wall thickness was assessed, and bladder volume was measured using both the ellipsoid formula and an automated technique. Patient age, gender, and body mass index were recorded. Linear regression models were created to account for bladder volume, age, gender, and body mass index, and the multiple correlation coefficient with bladder wall thickness was computed. Bladder volume and bladder wall thickness were log-transformed to achieve approximate normality and homogeneity of variance. ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Sulforaphane Improves Ischemia-Induced Detrusor Overactivity by Downregulating the Enhancement of Associated Endoplasmic Reticulum Stress, Autophagy, and Apoptosis in Rat Bladder. AU - Tai, Huai Ching. AU - Chung, Shiu Dong. AU - Chien, Chiang Ting. AU - Yu, Hong Jeng. PY - 2016/11/8. Y1 - 2016/11/8. N2 - Atherosclerosis-associated pelvic ischemia has been reported to be a risk factor for bladder dysfunction and subsequent lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) in the elderly population. However, the molecular mechanisms of this association remain unclear. We hypothesized that stress-induced cellular responses might play a role in the pathogenesis of ischemia-induced bladder dysfunction. In the present study, the animal model of bladder ischemia was induced by bilateral partial arterial occlusion (BPAO) in rats. We found that BPAO significantly induced the presence of detrusor overactivity (DO) and upregulated the expression of several molecular reactions, including biomarkers in ...

Stress incontinence, also known as stress urinary incontinence (SUI) or effort incontinence is a form of urinary incontinence. It is due to insufficient strength of the closure of the bladder. It is the loss of small amounts of urine associated with coughing, laughing, sneezing, exercising or other movements that increase intra-abdominal pressure and thus increase pressure on the bladder. The urethra is supported by fascia of the pelvic floor. If this support is insufficient, the urethra can move downward at times of increased abdominal pressure, allowing urine to pass. Most lab results such as urine analysis, cystometry and postvoid residual volume are normal. Some sources distinguish between urethral hypermobility and intrinsic sphincter deficiency. The latter is more rare, and requires different surgical approaches. Stress incontinence is rare in men. The most common cause is as a post-surgical complication following a prostatectomy. In women, physical changes resulting from pregnancy, ...
The tests are most often arranged for men with enlarged prostate glands, and for women with incontinence that has either failed conservative treatment or requires surgery. Probably the most important group in whom these tests are performed are those with a neuropathy such as spinal injury. In some of these patients (dependent on the level of the lesion), the micturition reflex can be essentially out of control and the detrusor pressures generated can be life-threatening. Symptoms reported by the patient are often an unreliable guide to the underlying dysfunction of the lower urinary tract. The purpose of urodynamics is to provide objective confirmation of the pathology that a patients symptoms would suggest. For example, a patient complaining of urinary urgency (or rushing to the toilet), with increased frequency of urination can have overactive bladder syndrome. The cause of this might be detrusor overactivity, in which the bladder muscle (the detrusor) contracts unexpectedly during bladder ...

A total of 30 women with stress incontinence underwent periurethral injection of autologous fat under spinal anesthesia, The fat was harvested from the abdominal wall by liposuction, Preoperative evaluation consisted of history, physical examination, and urodynamic evaluation, For study purposes, some patients also underwent bladder and urethral ultrasonography and magnetic resonance imaging studies, The first 13 patients received a single periurethral lipoinjection, and the following 17 patients received sequential injections when needed at 3-month intervals, Results were assessed by subjective questionnaire performed at 3 and 12 months. All patients had intrinsic sphincteric deficiency, Of the first group, there were only four patients (31%) cured after 1 year of follow-up, On the other hand, in the group that received repeated injections, there were 11 patients (64%) cured with a mean of two injections at 1-year follow-up. Our results show that this procedure warrants continued clinical ...
www.amh.net.au 13.1.1 Anticholinergics Special cases 13.1 Drugs for urinary tract disorders Urinary incontinence There are 3 main types of urinary incontinence, which may occur separately or in combination: - urge: involuntary loss of urine accompanied or preceded by a sudden urge to void (bladder overactivity) - stress: involuntary leakage on effort, exertion, sneezing or coughing - overflow: urinary retention and bladder distension caused by outlet obstruction (eg prostatic enlargement) or detrusor underactivity. Before starting drug treatment Ask the patient to keep a bladder diary for three 24hour periods; this may help to identify the type of incontinence and possible aetiology; tests (eg urinalysis, urodynamic assessment) may be necessary. Manage contributing factors, eg UTI, faecal loading, excessive fluid intake, unstable diabetes, obesity; reduce intake of caffeinated or alcoholic drinks. Also consider drugs as a cause of incontinence, eg selective alpha-blockers (eg prazosin), ...

At the center I voided 300 ccs before the test began. When she put the catheter in (the new Lo Fric) it hurt like (well
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.

Approximately 1 in 65,000 children develops end-stage renal disease (ESRD) each year. Before the 1950s, this condition was essentially untreatable.
In addition, several medications are under investigation; some are expected to be effective, but others, though they have theoretical basis, might be ineffective. Rho-kinase pathway upregulation was found in idiopathic detrusor overactivity, bladder changes in diabetes, and obstruction to retention so the drug in relation to this pathway has been an interesting target for the inhibition of bladder overactivity [27]. The vitamin D3 agonist, elocalcitol, is a RhoA/Rho kinase inhibitor and is under investigation for its effects against OAB. Although it has been reported as effective for women with OAB, further extensive studies are needed [28]. Nerve growth factor (NGF) has also been suggested as a potential therapeutic medication and a possible diagnostic biomarker. However, the development of tanezumab, a humanized NGF antibody, was ceased owing to its side effects [29]. Prostaglandin E2 was shown to activate bladder contraction via the afferent nerve through the EP1 receptor, which was ...

MUS represent the gold standard treatment for SUI, with high rates of recovery of continence. Since transvaginal tape was introduced in 1996, this procedure has become one of the most commonly used SUI treatments [21]. The TOT procedure appears to be associated with a lower incidence of postoperative voiding dysfunction [27]. However, some patients may present voiding dysfunction after surgery. In fact, no standard definition exists of postoperative voiding dysfunction after anti-incontinence surgery.. The International Urogynecological Association/International Continence Society joint report on the terminology for female pelvic floor dysfunction defines voiding dysfunction as follows: Voiding dysfunction, a diagnosis by symptoms and urodynamic investigations, is defined as abnormally slow and/or incomplete micturition. Hesitancy is a complaint of a delay in initiating micturition. Slow stream is a complaint of urinary stream perceived as slower compared to previous performance or in ...

I am still on track for tethered cord surgery. I will need just one more test to confirm it. I need to go to a local urologist to have urodynamics testing. Ive heard from some chiari friends (and my TCI nurse) that this is a very unpleasant test. Im especially dreading it, because I had so much trouble with my catheter during my last surgery. Ive always had catheter problems, but at least I know now that I have an abnormally small urethra, which is probably why Ive always found catheters to be so painful. So, this test is to check and see if my lumbar spine nerves connected to my bladder are working properly. It is expected that I will have at least some level of neurogenic bladder. This would confirm that the tethered cord surgery will help me ...
