OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effects of surgical anatomical correction on lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) in patients with a pelvic anterior compartment defect (PACD). METHODS: This prospective study was carried out on 30 women who had stage II-IV PACD. The women were questioned regarding LUTS symptoms such as urgency, urge incontinence, frequency, hesitancy, abnormal emptying, nocturia and dysuria pre and postoperatively. After a 7-month follow up, the comparison of LUTS symptoms with respect to their healing, existence or de novo appearance was performed using the McNemar and Bowner and Wilcoxon signed-rank tests...

OBJECTIVES: A 12-week post-marketing study was conducted to provide real-world data on Japanese patients with overactive bladder (OAB) initiating treatment with mirabegron. This post-hoc analysis focused on safety and effectiveness of mirabegron in patients aged ≥75 versus <75 years. METHODS: Incidence of adverse drug reactions (ADR) was assessed following 12 weeks' mirabegron treatment. Overactive Bladder Symptom Score (OABSS) and International-Prostate Symptom Score Quality of Life (I-PSS QoL) were completed at baseline and at the end of treatment (EoT)...

OBJECTIVES: To explore differences in bladder sensations between patients with overactive bladder (OAB) and healthy volunteers by evaluating self-consciousness, self-awareness and affective complaints. METHODS: A prospective, observational study was performed comparing patients with OAB symptoms and healthy volunteers.

OBJECTIVES: This study evaluates the diagnostic value of poorly relaxed external sphincter (PRES) in men with voiding dysfunction. We analyzed clinical and video-urodynamic characteristics to identify predictive factors of PRES in patients with lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) refractory to α-1 adrenoceptor blocker (α-blocker) therapy. METHODS: This retrospective study included 3379 men with LUTS in whom the initial 1-month α-blocker therapy failed. Clinical parameters and video-urodynamic results were analyzed...

OBJECTIVE: Urodynamic studies (UDS) include assessments of the physics and physiology of the lower urinary tract (LUT). It is an invasive test and patients can feel fear and anxiety, especially at the beginning of the test. The aim of this study was to determine whether listening to music during urodynamic study decreases patient anxiety and pain. METHODS: Sixty-two patients who underwent urodynamic study were randomized into the following groups: no music (group 1, n = 30) or classical music (group 2, n = 32) during the procedure...

OBJECTIVES: To report interim 1-year results from a 3-year surveillance study evaluating safety, efficacy, and persistence of long-term mirabegron for overactive bladder (OAB). METHODS: Patients starting treatment with mirabegron for urinary urgency, daytime frequency, and urgency incontinence associated with OAB were registered and followed up for 3 years. Data were collected on adverse drug reactions (ADR), changes in OAB symptoms, changes in Overactive Bladder Symptom Score (OABSS), and treatment discontinuations...

OBJECTIVES: The prevalence of storage symptoms, including stress urinary incontinence (SUI) and overactive bladder (OAB), is high in women worldwide. In Japan, there have been few large-scale epidemiological surveys of lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS), and the risk factors for these symptoms are unclear. The aim of this study was to explore the prevalence and risk factors of storage symptoms in Japanese women. METHODS: A cross-sectional Internet survey was conducted in Japan...

OBJECTIVES: We investigated the effect of daily climatic parameters on spontaneous acute urinary retention (sAUR) and evaluated the risk factors for refractory/recurrent AUR. METHODS: A total of 4194 patients older than 40 years were diagnosed with AUR in the emergency department at Gangnam Severance Hospital, Seoul, from January 2007 to May 2016. To evaluate climatic parameters at sAUR onset, we included individuals living in the area around the hospital. We excluded patients with fever, who did not return to the hospital after the AUR episode or with AUR occurring within 2 weeks following admission for surgery or chemotherapy...

OBJECTIVES: To introduce a new surgical mentorship, the "hand-grab navigated technique," to shorten the learning curve for Holmium laser enucleation of the prostate. METHODS: Patients with benign prostatic hyperplasia were managed at six institutions with Holmium laser enucleation of the prostate. An analysis was done in the 200 of these patients (the set of first 20 patients treated with Holmium laser enucleation of the prostate by 10 surgeons) who were sorted into two groups depending on the surgeon's instructional group...

OBJECTIVE: Our objective was to investigate predictors of early continence outcome after robot-assisted radical prostatectomy (RARP). METHODS: Clinical records were prospectively collected in 272 patients who underwent RARP. Clinical parameters, continence rates, and time to achieve continence were investigated and analyzed. Recovery of continence was defined as achieving complete continence (pad-free). RESULTS: In the univariate analysis, young age (≤67 years) and low pT stage (≤pT2) were significantly associated with continence achieved within 2 weeks after RARP (P = 0...

OBJECTIVES: To investigate the effect of high-fat diet (HFD) on bladder M1,3 muscarinic receptor expression and contractile function in the rat. METHODS: Eight-week-old male rats were divided into two groups including one with HFD for 8 weeks (short-term) and the other for 24 weeks (long-term). Each group was compared to age-matched rats fed with normal chow as controls. The body weight, food intake amount and blood biochemistry were monitored.

OBJECTIVE: To investigate whether or not the leg fluid displacement observed when moving from the standing to recumbent position at bedtime reduces the hours of undisturbed sleep (HUS). METHODS: Men aged 50 years or older who were hospitalized for urological diseases were investigated. Body water evaluation was performed three times with a bioelectric impedance method: (i) 17:00, (ii) 30 min after (short-term), and (iii) waking up (long-term). A frequency volume chart was used to evaluate the status of nocturnal urine production, and the factors affecting HUS were investigated...
