Purpose: There is no doubt that the best outcome achieved in Cauda equina syndrome (CES) involves surgical decompression. The controversy regarding outcome lies with timing of surgery. This study reports outcomes on a large population based series. Timing of surgery, Cauda Equina syndrome classification based on British Association of Spine Surgeons (BASS) guidelines and co-morbid illness will be assessed to evaluate influence on outcome. Materials and methods: A retrospective review of all patients surgically decompressed for CES between 01/01/2008 to 01/08/2014 was conducted...

BACKGROUND: Subthalamic nucleus (STN) deep brain stimulation (DBS) improves quality of life (QoL), motor, and non-motor symptoms (NMS) in advanced Parkinson's disease (PD). However, considerable inter-individual variability has been observed for QoL outcome. HYPOTHESIS: We hypothesized that demographic and preoperative NMS characteristics can predict postoperative QoL outcome. METHODS: In this ongoing, prospective, multicenter study (Cologne, Manchester, London) including 88 patients, we collected the following scales preoperatively and on follow-up 6 months postoperatively: PDQuestionnaire-8 (PDQ-8), NMSScale (NMSS), NMSQuestionnaire (NMSQ), Scales for Outcomes in PD (SCOPA)-motor examination, -complications, and -activities of daily living, levodopa equivalent daily dose...

PURPOSE: Interstitial cystitis/bladder pain syndrome is characterized by bladder inflammation without a bacterial infection. Although viral infection is a potential etiologic cause, few studies are reported. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Bladder specimens were obtained from patients with interstitial cystitis/bladder pain syndrome and patients with stress urinary incontinence (control). Bladder specimens were tested for Epstein-Barr-encoded RNAs by in situ hybridization, Epstein-Barr DNA by quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction (qPCR), serology, and immunohistochemical staining...

Reports of foreign body in the bladder are rare. Various objects have been retrieved. Diagnosis is mainly by history of lower urinary tract symptoms and low abdominal pain combined with relevant radiological investigations. Treatment depends on the size, nature, and configuration of the object. The approach may be endoscopic or through open surgery depending on the above highlighted factors.

INTRODUCTION: We report our early clinical observations on the use of topical meloxicam and lidocaine gel for patients with vulvodynia. METHODS: This is an early experience in participants with a history of vulvodynia evaluated and treated at the Queen's University Pelvic and Bladder Pain Clinic. Combination meloxicam 0.3% and lidocaine 5% were provided to the participants and they were instructed to apply 5 cc to the vulvar area twice daily. Standardized assessment was conducted for each participant before the start of the topical therapy and again at one week included Interstitial Cystitis Symptom Index (ICSI), Interstitial Cystitis Problem Index (ICPI), and pain scoring (Likert) for vulvar pain, in addition to a subjective global assessment after a week of treatment...

REVIEW

Sacral schwannomas are very rare and typically have a benign nature. They occur in a permissive anatomical location leading to non-specific symptoms which can result in them going unnoticed before reaching a considerable size. We report a rare case of a giant sacral schwannoma (130x110x90mm) in a 38-year-old man originating from the S2 nerve root, encompassing the neural canal with sacral erosion and extension in to the pelvis. The patient presented with a history of abdominal pain associated with increased urinary frequency and a sensation of incomplete bladder emptying...

OBJECTIVE: Space-occupying spinal metastases (SM), commonly diagnosed because of acute neurological deterioration, consequently lead to immediate decompression with tumor removal or debulking. In this study, we analyzed a series of patients with surgically treated spinal metastases and explicitly sought to determine individual predictors of functional outcome. PATIENTS AND METHODS: 94 patients (26 women, 68 men; mean age 64.0 years) with spinal metastases, who had been surgically treated at our department, were included retrospectively...

BACKGROUND: We compared functional, electrophysiological and morphological parameters after SCI in two groups of rats Sprague Dawley (SD) rats with normal vision and blind rats from a SD-substrain "Royal College of Surgeons" (SD/RCS) who lose their photoreceptor cells after birth due to a genetic defect in the retinal pigment epithelium. For these animals skin-, intramuscular-, and tendon receptors are major available means to resolve spatial information. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to check whether increased sensitivity in SD/RCS rats would promote an improved recovery after SCI...

Chemotherapy-induced hemorrhagic cystitis (CHC) can be difficult to manage. Prior work suggests that IL-4 alleviates ifosfamide-induced hemorrhagic cystitis (IHC), but systemically administered IL-4 causes significant side effects. We hypothesized that the Schistosoma hematobium homolog of IL-4-inducing principle from Schistosoma mansoni eggs (H-IPSE), would reduce IHC and associated bladder pathology. IPSE binds IgE on basophils and mast cells, triggering IL-4 secretion by these cells. IPSE is also an "infiltrin," translocating into the host nucleus to modulate gene transcription...

BACKGROUND: Ovarian endometriotic cysts, also known as 'chocolate' cysts or ovarian endometriomas, appear as endometrial tissue outside the uterine cavity which grows inside ovaries. Endometriotic cysts can cause chronic pelvic pain, dysmenorrhea, dyspareunia, impairment of ovarian function in regards to subfertility, etc. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is effectively treating subfertility associated with endometriosis for years, and the treatment gives positive results in achieving pregnancy...

OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to validate a new method for outpatient diode laser ablation of bladder tumors without sedation or pain control. METHODS: Twenty-one patients with stage Ta low-grade intermediate-risk bladder tumors underwent photodynamic-guided laser ablation of their bladder tumors and 1 month later follow-up cystoscopy with photodynamic and IMAGE1 S™-guided biopsies. Pain was measured using a visual analog scale (range 0-10). Symptoms and worries about the future disease course were calculated using the Quality of Life Questionnaire for Non-Muscle-Invasive Bladder Cancer (range 0-100, high scores indicating worse symptoms or worry)...
