BACKGROUND: Transurethral resection of prostate (TURP) is the most common treatment for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). Urinary tract catheter is inserted post-operatively which results in catheter-related bladder discomfort (CRBD) in many patients. The purpose of this study was to assess the preventive effect of hyoscine N-butyl bromide on CRBD caused by a urinary tract catheter after TURP surgery in patients with BPH. METHODS: Twenty-four and twenty-six patients in the treatment and control groups were enrolled, respectively...

Mesh repair has significantly reduced recurrence rate after groin hernia surgery. Recently, attention has shifted to issues such as chronic pain and discomfort, leading to development of lightweight and partially re-absorbable meshes. The aim of the study was to evaluate the effect of lightweight mesh vs heavyweight mesh on post-operative pain, discomfort and quality of life in short and medium term after inguinal hernia surgery. Eight hundred and eight patients with primary inguinal hernia were allocated to anterior repair (Lichtenstein technique) using a lightweight mesh (Ultrapro(®)) or a heavyweight mesh (Prolene(®))...

BACKGROUND CONTEXT: Neoplastic spinal instability is movement-related pain or neurologic compromise under physiologic loads with the Spinal Instability Neoplastic Score (SINS) developed to facilitate diagnosis. There is a paucity of evidence that mechanical instability correlates with patient-reported symptoms and that surgical stabilization significantly improves these patient-reported outcomes (PROs). PURPOSE: The objective of this study was to determine if SINS correlates with patient-reported preoperative pain and disability, and if surgical stabilization significantly improves PRO...

In scientific literature, magnetic fields are used both in basic science and clinical research. They are often used to treat pain and neuro-inflammation disorders thanks to their influence on cellular responses. Our project was born from the regenerative support that we wanted to give to those diseases characterized by neuro-inflammation, nerve lesion, muscles and tissues disorders that can transform the symptom (e.g. neuropathic pelvic pain) in disease. In this study, we examined the action of pulsed electromagnetic fields (PEMFs) on skin lesion regeneration and the repetitive trans-pelvic magnetic stimulation (rTPMS) on patients affected by incontinence and post-surgical problems, sexual dysfunction, and pelvic pain...
