• catheterization
  • It is also a common treatment used among spinal cord injury patients who are unable or unwilling to use intermittent catheterization to empty the bladder, and cannot otherwise void due to detrusor sphincter dyssynergia. (wikipedia.org)
  • mucosa
  • The rest of the bladder mucosa was normal. (biomedcentral.com)
  • The mass was excised with a 1 cm rim of normal bladder mucosa and sent for histological examination. (biomedcentral.com)
  • In this study, we aimed to compare polyglactine 910, cromed catgut and polydioxanone sutures according to stone formation and inflammation, congestion and foreign body reaction that occur on bladder mucosa. (springer.com)
  • urination
  • Symptoms may include frequent urination, trouble starting to urinate, weak stream, inability to urinate, or loss of bladder control. (wikipedia.org)
  • BPH is the most common cause of lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS), which are divided into storage, voiding, and symptoms which occur after urination. (wikipedia.org)
  • Voiding symptoms include urinary hesitancy (a delay between trying to urinate and the flow actually beginning), intermittency (not continuous), involuntary interruption of voiding, weak urinary stream, straining to void, a sensation of incomplete emptying, and terminal dribbling (uncontrollable leaking after the end of urination, also called post-micturition dribbling). (wikipedia.org)
  • The urinary bladder collects and stores the urine until urination. (wikipedia.org)
  • ultrasonography
  • Medical ultrasound (also known as diagnostic sonography or ultrasonography) is a diagnostic imaging technique based on the application of ultrasound. (wikipedia.org)
  • This is particularly important in neurology, where ultrasound is used for assessing blood flow and stenoses in the carotid arteries (Carotid ultrasonography) and the big intracerebral arteries (Transcranial Doppler). (wikipedia.org)
  • Ultrasonography can also be used to estimate hepatic volume and vascularity, and to identify related lesions affecting other abdominal structures, such as urinary calculi. (wikipedia.org)
  • Computed tomography (CT) may be considered when ultrasound expertise is lacking or ultrasonography is considered sub-optimal (e.g. because of the conformation of the patient). (wikipedia.org)
  • transitional epithelium
  • The inner side of the bladder is lined with a mucosal membrane consisting of a surface glycocalyx that protects the cells beneath it from urine, the urothelium (a form of transitional epithelium), a basement membrane, and the lamina propria. (wikipedia.org)
  • Anatomy of the male bladder, showing transitional epithelium and part of the wall in a histological cut-out. (wikipedia.org)
  • vaginal
  • CT revealed a giant dumbbell-shaped calculus with smaller vesical component and larger vaginal component connected by a waist through vesico-vaginal fistula. (eurorad.org)
  • For the diagnosis of vaginal calculi, ultrasound is considered more accurate than plain radiography, although there are limitations . (eurorad.org)
  • Dense posterior shadowing of the calculus can make it difficult to evaluate the vaginal component like in the case presented here. (eurorad.org)
  • First the calculus is removed through combined suprapubic and vaginal approach followed by fistula repair. (eurorad.org)
  • The lower part of the bladder is supplied by the inferior vesical artery in males and by the vaginal artery in females, both of which are branches of the internal iliac arteries. (wikipedia.org)
  • surgical
  • Ultrasound also provides information regarding possible metastasis to lymph nodes or other organs, and provides information regarding possible surgical resection of the tumor. (vetcontact.com)
  • 1. Surgery: Whenever possible, surgical resection with margins is ideal, but this is usually limited to the situation of bladder apex tumors. (vetcontact.com)
  • Urology (from Greek οὖρον ouron "urine" and -λογία -logia "study of"), also known as genitourinary surgery, is the branch of medicine that focuses on surgical and medical diseases of the male and female urinary-tract system and the male reproductive organs. (wikipedia.org)
  • Primary (immediate) closure is indicated only in those patients with a bladder of appropriate size, elasticity, and contractility as those patients are most likely to develop a bladder of adequate capacity after early surgical intervention. (wikipedia.org)
  • Modern therapy is aimed at surgical reconstruction of the bladder and genitalia. (wikipedia.org)
  • tumor
  • Transitional cell carcinoma (TCC) is the most common urinary tract tumor in dogs and research suggests that it may becoming more common. (vetcontact.com)
  • If ultrasound is not available, or of limited usefulness due to tumor mineralization or distal uretheral involvement, contrast cystourethrogram is indicated. (vetcontact.com)
  • incontinence
  • A 35-year-old female patient presented with chief complaints of urinary incontinence and perineal discomfort for two years, which increased gradually over a period of the past six months. (eurorad.org)
  • This leaves the patient with penile epispadias and urinary incontinence. (wikipedia.org)
