• urethra
  • In such patients, a bowel loop is often used to create either a "neo-bladder" or an "ileal conduit" which act as a place for the storage of urine before it is evacuated from the body either via the urethra or a urostomy respectively. (wikipedia.org)
  • Urinalysis can also involve MC&S microscopy, culture and sensitivity Urodynamic tests evaluate the storage of urine in the bladder and the flow of urine from the bladder through the urethra. (wikipedia.org)
  • urine
  • Upon contact with urine the gel dissolves and is cleared out from the bladder. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • For example: Urinary tract infections (UTIs), interstitial cystitis incontinence (involuntary loss of urine), benign prostatic hyperplasia (where the prostate overgrows), prostatitis (inflammation of the prostate). (wikipedia.org)
  • The most frequent initial symptom is haematuria which occurs when the urachal tumour has penetrated the bladder wall, but mucinuria (mucin in the urine), local pain or swelling, recurrent local or urinary tract infections and umbilical discharge can (but is not always) be seen. (wikipedia.org)
  • INFECTION
  • Urinary retention, which is a common complication of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), though it can also be caused by other types of urinary tract obstruction, nerve dysfunction, tethered spinal cord syndrome, constipation, infection and certain medications. (wikipedia.org)
  • mitomycin
  • The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety of intravesical instillation of TC-3 Hydrogel disposable device for retention of mitomycin C chemotherapeutic drug in the urinary bladder. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Some patients are given mitomycin into the bladder either as a one-off dose in the immediate post-operative period (within 24 hrs) or a few weeks after the surgery as a six dose regimen. (wikipedia.org)
  • CHRONIC
  • Advances in cytogenetics facilitated discovery of chromosome abnormalities in neoplasms, including the Philadelphia chromosome in chronic myelogenous leukemia and translocations in acute myeloblastic leukemia. (wikipedia.org)
  • typically
  • Sarcoma botryoides or botryoid sarcoma or botryoid rhabdomyosarcoma is a subtype of embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma, that can be observed in the walls of hollow, mucosa lined structures such as the nasopharynx, common bile duct, urinary bladder of infants and young children or the vagina in females, typically younger than age 8. (wikipedia.org)
  • Drug
  • Prior to instillation, the TC-3 hydrogel,in a liquid state, is mixed with MMC.TC-3 mixed with MMC is instilled to the bladder by a catheter.Following gel insertion to the bladder, the gel solidifies and forms a drug reservoir inside the bladder. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • exposure
  • Intravesical MMC using TheraCoat gel is expected to increase treatment efficiency due to prolongation of treatment duration and consequently improving bladder exposure to MMC. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Small
  • Side effects include a small chance of developing systemic tuberculosis or the patient becoming sensitized to the BCG causing severe intolerance and a possible reduction in bladder volume due to scarring. (wikipedia.org)
  • During hydrodistention of the bladder, small petechial hemorrhages (aka glomerulations) are frequently found throughout the bladder. (wikipedia.org)
  • wall
  • Macroscopic studies demonstrated an ulcerated firm mass which was present in the left lateral wall of the bladder. (biomedsearch.com)
  • Larger "Hunner's Ulcers", known for their characteristic waterfall bleeding effect, represent larger areas of bladder wall thinning and/or trauma. (wikipedia.org)
