PURPOSE: Detrusor underactivity (DU) has lately gained increasing interest because this bladder condition is an important cause of post-void residual urine and lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) in adult men. Until now, DU can only be diagnosed by pressure-flow measurement. Therefore, the aim of this study was to search for noninvasive tests which can safely predict DU in adult men. METHODS: Unselected, treatment-naïve male patients aged ≥40 years with uncomplicated, non-neurogenic LUTS were prospectively evaluated...

PURPOSE: Shuttling of some of the bladder volume into the bladder diverticulum (BD) can cause urinary retention, lower urinary tract dysfunction, infection, and stone formation. This experimental study is the first to create a rabbit BD to study micturition physiology (urodynamics and pathology) that mimics clinical findings. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The study included 16 New Zealand adult male rabbits in the BD group and 16 sham-operated controls. BD creation consisted of a lower midline laparotomy and bladder entry via the spacing between the detrusor muscle fibers and the mucosa, posterolaterally from the bladder wall...

BACKGROUND: Urodynamics (UDS) has been considered the gold standard test for detrusor overactivity (DO) in women with an overactive bladder (OAB). Bladder ultrasonography to measure bladder wall thickness (BWT) is less invasive and has been proposed as an alternative test. OBJECTIVES: To estimate the reliability, reproducibility, accuracy and acceptability of BWT in women with OAB, measured by ultrasonography, in the diagnosis of DO; to explore the role of UDS and its impact on treatment outcomes; and to conduct an economic evaluation of alternative care pathways...

AIMS: We investigated the effects of hypertension and acute blood pressure changes on rats' vesicovascular reflexes (VVRs). MAIN METHODS: Twelve-week-old male Wistar rats and spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHRs) were anesthetized with urethane, and underwent real-time cystometry and blood pressure monitoring. The SHRs were administered nifedipine or valsartan intravenously. The Wistar rats were administered intravenous noradrenaline continuously. The intercontraction intervals, maximum detrusor pressures, blood pressure during the voiding and the urine storage phases, blood pressure elevations associated with the VVRs, and arterial pulses were assessed...

AIMS: Measurement of bladder wall thickness (BWT) by transvaginal ultrasound (TVUS) may be a less invasive method to diagnose overactive bladder (OAB) or detrusor overactivity (DO) and monitor response to therapy. This study assessed whether treatment with solifenacin affects BWT. METHODS: This was a double-blind, randomised, placebo-controlled, phase 4 study. Adult women with OAB symptoms received solifenacin 5 or 10 mg or placebo once daily for 12 weeks. The co-primary endpoints were change from baseline to Week 12 in TVUS-measured BWT and urinary nerve growth factor...

PURPOSE: Bladder function is often impaired with aging. In other organs caloric restriction has had a prophylactic effect on the biological changes associated with aging. We tested the hypothesis that long-term caloric restriction can prevent age related impaired bladder function in the rat. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Fisher 344 male rats were divided into 3 groups, including 16 young rats at age 6 months with free access to normal food, 15 old rats at age 25 to 28 months with free access to normal food and 16 old rats at age 25 to 28 months fed with normal food 3 days per week since age 6 weeks (caloric restriction)...

OBJECTIVE: To describe a novel technique of ureteral reimplantation in patients with thick-walled bladders, which addresses the technical challenges and high failure rates seen in this population. METHODS: From 1997 to 2012, 45 megaureters were reimplanted in 26 children aged 2-11 years. Key surgical modifications included ureteral trough creation within the detrusor, formation of a distal ureteral split-cuff nipple, reliance on transureteroureterostomy (TUU) when the bladder would not support the reimplantation of 2 ureters, performance of psoas vesicopexy, and judicious utilization of ureteral stump augmentation in patients undergoing TUU...

This study was designed to determine the role of the small GTPase Rac1 on carbachol-induced contractile activity in detrusor smooth muscle using small inhibitor NSC 23766 in diabetic rats. Rac1 expression in bladder tissue was also evaluated. In the streptozotocin (STZ)-induced diabetic rat model, three study groups were composed of control, diabetic and insulin-treated diabetic subjects. The detrusor muscle strips were suspended in organ baths at the end of 8-12 weeks after STZ injection. Carbachol (CCh) (10(-9) -10(-4) M) concentration-response curves were obtained both in the absence and in the presence of Rac1 inhibitor NSC 23766 (0...
