AIMS: To identify the prevalence of and risk factors for urinary retention and catheterization among female Medicare beneficiaries. METHODS: We identified women with a diagnosis of urinary retention in a 5% sample of Medicare claims in 2012. Women were categorized into three groups based on the occurrence and duration of urinary catheterization within a 1 year period: 1) no catheterization; 2) short-term catheterization (ie, one or more catheterizations in less than 30 days); and 3) chronic catheterization (catheterizations in multiple 30 day periods within 1 year)...

AIMS: Polymyxin E was used for treating gram-negative bacterial infections but not recently for fear of its nephrotoxicity. Silybin has potential to counteract nephrotoxicity; however, few studies have investigated its protective effect on the kidney in an animal model. The purpose of the present study was to assess whether silybin could decrease elevated urine and serum renal biochemical markers induced by polymyxin E in rat kidney. METHODS: Forty rats were divided randomly into four groups of 10 rats: control (I), vehicle (II), treatment (III, using polymyxin E), and protection (IV, using silybin and polymyxin E)...

AIMS: To investigate the pathogenic role of activation of the mammalian target of the rapamycin (mTOR) in the ketamine induced microvascular injury. METHODS: Twenty-three patients with ketamine-induced cystitis (KC) and 16 control volunteers were recruited. Bladder tissues were obtained from both groups by cystoscopic biopsies. Phospho-S6 ribosomal protein (p-S6RP), an end product of the mTOR pathway, was stained in the urinary bladder from both groups. Endothelial cells of the urinary bladder (HBdMECs) were examined to investigate the in vitro activation of the mTOR pathway and the co-expression of the endothelial marker (cluster of differentiation 31 [CD31]) and the mesenchymal marker (fibroblast-specific protein 1 [FSP-1])...

AIM: The current standard diagnostic test to evaluate bladder outlet obstruction (BOO) is pressure-flow study (PFS). The penile cuff test (PCT) was introduced as a non-invasive alternative to PFS to determine the isovolumetric bladder pressure and also flow rate. The aim of the study was to evaluate the diagnostic accuracy and acceptability of the PCT, compared to those of PFS, in the assessment of BOO in men. METHODS: A total of 146 consecutive men with an International Prostate Symptom Score (IPSS) >12 and lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) for >6 months were included in this single-institution, prospective, diagnostic study...
