BACKGROUND: Few studies have focused on the urodynamic findings of urethral diverticula (UD). We characterized the symptoms and urodynamic findings in women with UD. METHODS: A retrospective review of all women in a single center having surgical treatment for symptomatic UD between May 2004 and September 2014 was done. Lower urinary tract symptoms were evaluated with International Prostate Symptom Score and Overactive Bladder Symptom Score questionnaires. All patients underwent magnetic resonance imaging and videourodynamic study (VUDS) prior to surgery, and postoperative evaluation with VUDS...

BACKGROUND: This study assessed whether cholecystectomy can decrease recurrent cholangitis and all-cause mortality in patients who received endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) with sphincterotomy and successful clearance of bile duct (BD) stones after gallstone-related cholangitis. METHODS: We analyzed data from the National Health Insurance research database of Taiwan. Patients who had gallstone-related cholangitis and underwent successful endoscopic clearance of BD stones were eligible for enrollment...

BACKGROUND: Patients suffering from renal or ureteral stones can undergo significant discomfort, even when timely diagnosed and treated. The aim of this study was to assess the risk factors and safety of outpatient Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy (ESWL) in the management of patients with renal or ureteral stones. METHODS: In this study, our cohort consisted of 844 outpatients who underwent outpatient ESWL treated between February 2012 and November 2014 at Taipei Veterans General Hospital...

Sung-Lang Chen, Soo-Cheen Ng, Yu-Hui Huang, Gin-Den Chen
BACKGROUND: To determine if there are clinical and urodynamic (UD) differences between female overactive bladder (OAB) patients with bladder oversensitivity (BO) and detrusor overactivity (DO) via a much lower filling rate. METHODS: In total, 205 patients with OAB symptoms were recruited for this study. During filling cystometry, the bladder was filled at a more "physiological" rate of 20 ml/min. All patients underwent a complete urogynecological evaluation including detailed history, physical examination, urinalysis, pad test for quantification of urine leakage, 3-day frequency-volume chart (FVC) documentation, and completion of a UD study...

BACKGROUND: In cases of meningioma surrounding the optical apparatus, this study sought to reduce the incidence of radiation-induced optical neuropathy resulting from gamma knife surgery (GKS) by dividing the treatment volume into 2 or 3 fractions. METHODS: Four patients with a large skull base meningioma (1 male and 3 females; median age: 42 years; range: 33-43 yrs) were treated using volume-staged GKS. In stage I, the large basal part of the tumor (13.2 mL; range: 3...

BACKGROUND: Urothelial carcinoma (UC) is derived from the urothelium of the urinary tract, and includes cancers of the bladder, renal pelvis and ureter. The aim of this study was to investigate the clinical and demographic features among patients with bladder cancer and urothelial carcinoma of the upper urinary tract (UTUC) in Taiwan. METHODS: The present study recruited a total of 736 histopathologically confirmed UC cases, which consisted of 470 bladder cancer and 266 UTUC between September 1998 and December 2009...

Vascular remodeling is an essential component of gestation. Endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) play an important role in the regulation of vascular homeostasis. The results of studies measuring the number of EPCs in normal pregnancies and in preeclampsia have been highly controversial or even contradictory because of some variations in technical issues and different methodologies enumerating three distinct subsets of EPCs: circulating angiogenic cells (CAC), colony forming unit endothelial cells (CFU-ECs), and endothelial colony-forming cells (ECFCs)...

BACKGROUND: To assess the efficacy of neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) patients treated with definitive chemoradiotherapy (CRT). METHODS: The clinical data of patients with ESCC treated with chemoradiotherapy with or without NAC were collected and retrospectively reviewed. The overall survival, locoregional failure-free survival, and distant failure-free survival were analyzed statistically. RESULTS: A total of 60 patients fulfilled the inclusion criteria, of which 41 were treated with NAC-CRT and 19 were treated with CRT-alone...

BACKGROUND: Refractive error is the major cause of moderate and severe visual impairment. Visual impairment limits people's ability to perform daily tasks and affects their quality of life. Longitudinal data on the refractive status of the elderly was available only for whites and Africans. The purpose of this study was to report the 7-year incidence of myopia, hyperopia and refractive error change as well as their associated risk factors in a metropolitan elderly Chinese population. METHODS: The Shihpai Eye Study 2006 included 460/824 (55...

BACKGROUND: The traditional treatment of subarterial ventricular septal defect (VSD) is open heart surgery. This study aimed to evaluate the feasibility, safety and outcome of transcatheter closure with the Amplatzer duct occluder (ADO). METHODS: Between March 2012 and June 2015, a total of 16 patients (8 male and 8 female) with subarterial VSD who underwent transcatheter closure with the ADO were enrolled retrospectively. Their age ranged from 3.0 to 65.6 years, with the median of 35...
