Locally advanced bladder cancer causes unpleasant symptoms such as irritative voiding symptoms, lower abdominal pain, gross hematuria and urinary retention, and lowers the quality of life. Treatment decisions in elderly patients may be difficult, as elderly patients are physically and psychologically different from younger patients. An 89-year-old male was referred to hospital for the treatment of an invasive bladder tumor with right hydronephrosis from tumor obstruction. The patient was elderly and did not have a good performance status; therefore curative radical cystectomy or chemotherapy was not indicated...

AIM: The aim of this study was to review the evidence regarding the pathophysiology of detrusor underactivity in the elderly. METHODS: A literature review was conducted in July 2016 using the Medline/Pubmed database limiting the search to works in English or French. RESULTS: The prevalence of detrusor underactivity has been reported to range from 8% to 48% depending on the definition used and the age of the population studied. Current data suggest that aging may itself be a causative factor of detrusor underactivity through myogenic dysfunctions (ultrastructural degeneration of the detrusor muscle) and neurogenic dysfunctions (by degeneration of efferent but mostly afferent innervation mechanisms)...

PURPOSE: As the elderly population increases, a growing number of patients have lower urinary tract symptom (LUTS)/benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). The aim of this study was to develop decision support formulas and nomograms for the prediction of bladder outlet obstruction (BOO) and for BOO-related surgical decision-making, and to validate them in patients with LUTS/BPH. METHODS: Patient with LUTS/BPH between October 2004 and May 2014 were enrolled as a development cohort...

OBJECTIVE: Underactive bladder is frequently encountered in elderly patients. It may result from detrusor underactivity (DU) or low detrusor contractility due to a urethral sphincter inhibitory effect. This study analyzed the video-urodynamic study (VUDS) characteristics of patients with underactive bladder in a large cohort of men with lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS). METHODS: Male patients with LUTS who had failed the initial treatment were consecutively enrolled...

Faecal impaction is a problem which is becoming more prevalent now that the number of elderly patients is increasing. When not detected and treated inadequately, it can lead to symptoms such as diarrhoea, faecal incontinence and other serious problems like anorexia, vomiting and rectal ulcers with bleeding or even a bowel perforation. We describe two patients with serious and less common complications of faecolithiasis. Patient A, a 79-year-old woman with signs of dementia, presented with faecal incontinence and unexplained worsening of her cognitive symptoms leading to a situation where she could no longer live in her own home...

Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) with lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) is one of the most common ailments affecting aging men. Symptoms typically associated with BPH include weak stream, hesitancy, urgency, frequency, and nocturia. More serious complications of BPH include urinary retention, gross hematuria, bladder calculi, recurrent urinary tract infection, obstructive uropathy, and renal failure. Evaluation of BPH includes a detailed history, objective assessment of urinary symptoms with validated questionnaires, and measurement of bladder function parameters, including uroflowmetry and postvoid residual...

We report a case of pseudotuberculous granulomatous pyelitis in an elderly female patient with hydronephrotic right kidney secondary to obstructing urinary stone. Pseudotuberculous granulomatous pyelitis is a rarely reported entity, characterized by severe granulomatous inflammation limited predominantly to the renal pelvis. It is associated with urinary (pelvicalyceal) obstruction, urolithiasis well as non- Mycobacterial urinary tract infection.

OBJECTIVES: To examine the influence of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) on nocturia, controlling for their shared co-morbidities, in a population of community-based middle aged to elderly men. METHODS: Participants were drawn from a randomly selected, community-dwelling cohort of men in Adelaide, Australia. Seven hundred and eight men (mean: 60.7 [41.6-88.2] years) who had polysomnography recordings, complete lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) measures (International Prostate Symptom Score), without prostate or bladder cancer and/or surgery, and no prior OSA diagnosis were selected...

Renal colic (RC) represents nearly 2% of emergency department admissions. RC is defined by the occurrence of back pain which may radiate towards the abdomen and external genitals. In adults, the obstruction is caused by a urinary stone in 80% of cases. The 20 % of non-stone related RCs are due either to an intrinsic obstruction (pyeloureteral junction stenosis, ureteral tumor, ...) or an extrinsic compression (pelvic tumor, lymphadenopathy ...). In over 90% of cases, an RC does not require hospitalization and is treated with medication...

Gastric cancer is one of the most common digestive malignant tumors. More and more elderly gastric cancer patients are diagnosed and need to undergo surgical treatment as the population ages. Since the elderly patients decrease in organ function and increase in internal diseases, the tolerance to anesthesia and surgery is poor. As a result, the incidence of surgical and postoperative complications is obviously higher. Complications can be divided into surgical complications and non-surgical related complications...

Appendicitis is a common surgical abdominal disease with various presentations. Its diagnosis may be obscured by asymptomatic congenital anatomical anomalies like midgut malrotation. Midgut malrotation is a rare fetal anomaly resulting from incomplete or failure of midgut rotation and fixation. It is mostly presented with bowel obstruction or volvulus in early life. Presentation in adult is rare. Here, we report an elderly patient presented with left lower abdominal pain and urinary tract infection. Abdominal computed tomography revealed left-sided appendicitis with non-rotational-type midgut malrotation...

A Wiedemann, I Füsgen
As people age, they increasingly experience multimorbidity, especially regarding urological conditions. Multimorbidity in elderly patients frequently includes urinary incontinence and subvesical obstruction. While urinary incontinence is often directly associated with other existing diseases or polymedication, subvesical obstruction may be unrelated to other morbidities. Subvesical obstruction often requires polymedication and is therefore a noteworthy condition in urological diagnostics and treatment. First and foremost, a focused diagnostic investigation must be performed, which then enables a systematic therapeutic approach...

Due to the demographic shift, increasing numbers of geriatric patients are admitted to acute care hospitals of all levels of care. This means that special challenges must be met in the medical care and management of these patients.Immunosenescence and multimorbidity make elderly patients vulnerable to infectious diseases. Urinary tract infections range from "simple" cystitis to pyelonephritis and urosepsis and, at 25%, are the second most common form of infection in geriatric patients. It is often difficult to make a diagnosis because typical symptoms do not always occur...

BACKGROUND: Although the number of patients reaching end-stage kidney disease without a biopsy-proven diagnosis is increasing, the utility of renal biopsy is still an object of debate. We analyzed epidemiological data and the main indications for renal biopsy with a systematic, evidence-based review at current literature. SUMMARY: There is a high discrepancy observed in biopsy rates and in the epidemiology of glomerular diseases worldwide, related to the different time frame of the analyzed reports, lack of data collection, the different reference source population and the heterogeneity of indications...

Lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) are a group of voiding symptoms affecting both genders as they age. Traditionally, LUTS in men were commonly attributed to bladder outlet obstruction (BOO) due to benign prostatic enlargement (BPE). It was later shown that, in approximately one-third to more than one-half of cases, LUTS in men are not associated with BOO. Urodynamic changes in the male bladder and symptom scores in aging men were found to be identical to their age-matched female counterparts. These observations suggested that LUTS in the elderly do not necessarily relate to BOO and may result from local changes in bladder muscle, nerves, and blood vessels...

INTRODUCTION: Small bowel carcinoid tumours are indolent neuroendocrine tumours usually seen in the 6(th) and 7(th) decades. Most often, they are silent with non-specific symptoms. They generate serotonin, provoking a desmoplastic reaction in the mesentery leading to bowel ischemia and obstruction. While CECT abdomen can help raise suspicion and show regional spread, elevated 24-hour urinary 5-HIAA levels, histopathology and immunohistochemistry for Chromogranin A are confirmatory. AIM: To analyse a single surgeon's experience of clinical features and diagnosis of carcinoid tumours of the small intestine...

Purple urine bag syndrome is a rare condition in which purple discoloration of urine inside its collection bag occurs. We describe two illustrative cases. The first patient is an 81-year-old man who was hospitalized for a newly diagnosed lymphoma with acute obstructive renal failure for which a nephrostomy procedure was performed. During the hospitalization, a sudden purple discoloration of the suprapubic catheter urine was noted, while the nephrostomy urine had a normal color. Urine culture from the suprapubic catheter was positive for Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Enterococcus faecalis; urine from the nephrostomy was sterile...
