Bladder retention

Lorena Cussó, Manuel Desco
INTRODUCTION: Retention of 2-deoxy-2-[18F]fluoro-D-glucose 18F-FDG in the bladder causes more problems in small animal research than in human research owing to the smaller size of the subject. Catheterization has been proposed to reduce bladder spillover both in human studies and in small animal research. Noninvasive alternatives such as hydration plus furosemide also seem to be a promising pre-imaging strategy for decreasing bladder spillover. Our main goal was to measure the effects of the combination of furosemide and hydration for reducing bladder signal directly on mouse bowel 18F-FDG-PET images...

Sacral neuromodulation (SNM) is a minimally invasive, established treatment modality for overactive bladder (OAB) as well as for other pelvic functional disorders, such as non-obstructive urinary retention and fecal incontinence. A pacemaker implanted in the upper buttocks delivers mild electrical pulses to the sacral nerves thereby modulating pathological afferent signals from pelvic end organs. The current article conveys the current knowledge on the indications, contraindications, mechanism of action, implantation technique, efficacy and complications of SNM for the treatment refractory OAB...

INTRODUCTION: Normal voiding needs a coordinated, sustained bladder contraction of adequate size and duration. It requires a decrease in resistance of the bladder neck and urethra and no obstruction. Voiding problems can arise from abnormal storage of urine or problems with urinary control. The aim of this article was to review the functional anatomy and physiology of urinary control and micturition and the pathophysiology of urinary control problems. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The Medline (PubMed) database, Cochrane Library, and Science Citation Index were searched electronically to identify original published studies on bladder anatomy, function and urinary control...

BACKGROUND Urinary tract candida infection can be due either to hematogenous dissemination of the organism or a retrograde infection. In debilitated or immunosuppressed septic patients, who have upper urinary tract obstruction with renal filling defect, fungal infection should be considered. We report on a patient with sepsis and renal fungal ball who was treated with percutaneous nephrostomy and intravenous antifungal agent, but the patient did not respond so instillation of fluconazole through nephrostomy was given...

Urinary retention is the acute or chronic inability to voluntarily pass an adequate amount of urine. The condition predominantly affects men. The most common causes are obstructive in nature, with benign prostatic hyperplasia accounting for 53% of cases. Infectious, inflammatory, iatrogenic, and neurologic causes can also affect urinary retention. Initial evaluation should involve a detailed history that includes information about current prescription medications and use of over-the-counter medications and herbal supplements...

Background: Dysfunction of the lower urinary tract is the most common complication of radical hysterectomy (RH). However, there are no established treatment protocols for postoperative underactive bladder (PUB). We developed our own new program for the treatment of underactive bladder (UB) after RH and evaluated it retrospectively. Methods: In this program, there are five steps for patients to follow according to their urinary condition. The first step is the administration of urapidil 30 mg, voiding six times at a predetermined time each day, and clean intermittent catheterization (CIC) after each voiding...

OBJECTIVES: To establish the effectiveness and safety profile of BTX-A in men with idiopathic detrusor overactivity (IDO) and compare with the outcomes observed in women. Several randomized trials have demonstrated the effectiveness of intradetrusor Onaboulinum Toxin A (BTX-A) injections in improving symptoms and quality of life (QoL) in patients with overactive bladder (OAB) symptoms. Most trials however contained relatively few men or excluded men altogether. METHODS: Data patient undergoing BTX-A for refractory OAB with IDO on urodynamics were extracted from our centre's prospectively maintained database...

Although gravid uterine incarceration is typically diagnosed during the early second trimester, we encountered two unusual cases in early pregnancy. A 34-year-old multiparous woman with adenomyosis presented at 7 + 2 weeks of gestation with increased urinary frequency and a sensation of incomplete bladder emptying. The uterine incarceration was successfully reduced by manual reduction and pessary insertion, and she delivered a normal infant at term. In the second case, a 31-year-old nulliparous woman with a large myoma complained of dysuria, acute urinary retention, and intense back pain at 6 weeks of gestation...

Purpose: Postoperative urinary retention (POUR) is one of the most common complications following spinal anesthesia. Spinal anesthesia may influence urinary bladder function due to interruption of the micturition reflex. Urinary catheterization is the standard treatment of POUR. Urinary catheter insertion is an invasive procedure, which is associated with catheter-related infections, urethral trauma, and patient discomfort. The purpose of this study was to determine the effectiveness of intramuscular (IM) neostigmine to accelerate bladder emptying after spinal anesthesia...

AIMS: Cerebral palsy (CP) is characterized by motor impairments as a result of brain injury during development. Patients can have neurogenic bladder dysfunction and are often unable to catheterize through their native urethra. Catheterizable channel (CC) creation can facilitate clean intermittent catheterization (CIC). We have observed that patients with large capacity, low-pressure bladders can develop de novo neurogenic detrusor overactivity (NDO) postoperatively. We sought to better characterize this finding...

Organ-on-a-chip platforms serve as cost-efficient testbeds for screening pharmaceutical agents, mimicking natural physiology, and studying disease. In the field of diabetes, the development of an islet-on-a-chip platform would have broad implications in understanding disease pathology and discovering potential therapies. Islet microphysiological systems are limited, however, by their poor cell survival and function in culture. A key factor that has been implicated in this decline is the disruption of islet-matrix interactions following isolation...
