OBJECTIVES: No studies have investigated the association between nocturia and depressive symptoms in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus. Because nocturia and depressive symptoms are common in patients with type 2 diabetes, we examined this association in Japanese patients with type 2 diabetes. METHODS: We studied 762 Japanese patients with type 2 diabetes. A self-administered questionnaire was used to collect information about the variables under study. The subjects were divided into 3 groups according to their nocturnal micturition: 1) no nocturia; 2) mild nocturia (1 void per night) and 3) moderate to severe nocturia (2 or more voids per night)...

The regulation of micturition involves complex neurophysiologic pathways, and its understanding has grown immensely over the past decade. Alternative approaches and applied technologies in the treatment of bladder dysfunction have minimized the complications that result from neurogenic bladder. The use of natural bladder mechanoreceptors and electroneneurographic (ENG) signal recordings from afferent nerves to chronically monitor bladder volume is a promising concept, but the technology to accomplish this has proven to be a great biomedical engineering challenge...

A 24-year-old man, with past medical history significant only for nocturnal enuresis until the age of 12 years, presented to the emergency department with acute abdominal pain after an episode of difficulty with micturition in the middle of the night. On presentation, physical examination was suggestive of ascites and laboratories revealed an elevated serum creatinine of 1.88 mg/dL. He was subsequently found to have a ruptured bladder, without any inciting trauma, which required surgical repair. His only surgical history is an unknown, apparently urologic, surgery when he was 11-12 years old...

BACKGROUND: Interstitial cystitis (IC) is a chronic inflammation disorder mainly within the submucosal and muscular layers of the bladder. As the cause of IC remains unknown, no effective treatments are currently available. Administration of stem cell provides a potential for treatment of IC. METHODS: This study was conducted using urine-derived stem cells (USCs) for protamine/lipopolysaccharide (PS/LPS)-induced interstitial cystitis in a rodent model. In total, 60 female Sprague-Dawley rats were randomized into three experimental groups (n = 5/group): sham controls; IC model alone; and IC animals intravenously treated with USCs (1...

The rat is a commonly used model for the study of lower urinary tract function before and after spinal cord injury. We have previously reported that in unanesthetized, freely-moving rats, although phasic external urethral sphincter (EUS) activity (bursting) is most common during micturition, productive voiding can occur in the absence of bursting, which differs from results seen in anesthetized or unanesthetized restrained animals. The purpose of the present study was to characterize EUS behavior in unanesthetized, freely-moving rats before and after mid-thoracic (T8) or thoraco-lumbar (T13-L1) spinal transection to determine how EUS behavior after spinal cord injury differs from that seen in anesthetized or unanesthetized restrained rats...

OBJECTIVE: Many indications justifiably drive the pediatrician to request a urine sample in order to assess the health status of the incontinent baby or infant. Urine collection by means of an adhesive perineal bag is the most widely used in children who do not control urine emission, despite its inaccurate reflection of bacteriuria. We suggest a novel technique to immediately visualize the micturition event upon occurrence, in attempt to shorten waiting times and exhausting checking and rechecking opaque diapers in order to determine whether the desired sample has finally been delivered...

INTRODUCTION: Overactive bladder (OAB) symptoms (urge, frequency, nocturia) are not generally considered surgically curable by learning institutions. The Integral Theory hypothesizes that OAB is a prematurely activated, but normal micturition reflex caused by loose suspensory ligaments and potentially curable surgically by repairing such ligaments. To test this hypothesis by surgical repair of loose cardinal and uterosacral ligaments in patients with 2(nd) degree or greater uterine/apical prolapse...

OBJECTIVE To assess the hypothesis that patients receiving placebo in overactive bladder (OAB) trials who experience less benefit from 'treatment' continue with behavioral modifications such as fluid restriction, whereas those on active treatment adopt more normal drinking patterns. This may manifest itself as a reduction in micturition frequency (MF). MATERIALS AND METHODS We interrogated a large integrated database containing pooled patient data from 4 randomized, placebo-controlled phase III OAB solifenacin studies...

BACKGROUND: Bladder dysfunction is an important symptom of experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE). Our previous study showed that EAE-induced upregulation of the E-prostanoid receptor 3 (EP3) and E-prostanoid receptor 4 (EP4) in the bladder was accompanied by bladder dysfunction. Although many other studies have evaluated the lower urinary tract symptoms in multiple sclerosis, the mechanism remains unclear. OBJECTIVES: To investigate the effects of interstitial cells of Cajal (ICC) on bladder dysfunction in a novel neurogenic bladder model induced by experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis...

BACKGROUND: Cauda equina syndrome (CES) is a rare neurologic complication of lumbar herniated disc for which emergency surgical decompression should be undertaken. Despite the common belief that the restoration of functions that are affected by CES can take several years postoperatively, follow up seldom exceeds the first year after surgery. Long term outcome of especially micturition, defecation and sexual function-which are by definition affected in CES-are unknown. The aim of this study is to evaluate 1) postoperative long term outcome of micturition, defecation and sexual function in CES patients 2) attitude of patients towards received hospital care with regard to (recovery of) these functions...

PURPOSE: Sacral nerve and tibial nerve stimulation have been singly used to treat overactive bladder (OAB). This study evaluated the effects of both combined stimulation on treating bladder overactivity in pigs and explored a novel treatment modality for OAB. METHODS: An implant-driven stimulator of the S3 spinal nerve was implanted in 5 pigs. The contralateral tibial nerve was stimulated by an external stimulator. Multiple cystometrograms were performed to determine the effects of single nerve stimulation and combination sacral nerve stimulation (SNS) and tibial nerve stimulation (TNS) on the micturition reflex by infusing normal saline (NS) or acetic acid (AA)...
