BACKGROUND: Lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) and overactive bladder (OAB) symptoms have a substantial effect on quality of life (QoL). We report QoL and mental health results from a LUTS prevalence study in three Asian countries. METHODS: A cross-sectional, population-representative, internet-based study among individuals aged ≥40 years in China, Taiwan and South Korea. Instruments included: Overactive Bladder Symptom Score (OABSS); International Prostate Symptom Score (IPSS); other International Continence Society (ICS) symptom questions; health-related QoL 12-item short-form (HRQoL-SF12v2); Work Limitations Questionnaire (WLQ); Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (HADS)...

INTRODUCTION: The terminology for adult neurogenic lower urinary tract dysfunction (ANLUTD) should be defined and organized in a clinically based consensus Report. METHODS: This Report has been created by a Working Group under the auspices and guidelines of the International Continence Society (ICS) Standardization Steering Committee (SSC) assisted at intervals by external referees. All relevant definitions for ANLUTD were updated on the basis of research over the last 14 years...

AIMS: Geographical differences in patient-reported outcomes (PROs) of adults with congenital heart disease (ConHD) have been observed, but are poorly understood. We aimed to: (1) investigate inter-country variation in PROs in adults with ConHD; (2) identify patient-related predictors of PROs; and (3) explore standard of living and healthcare system characteristics as predictors of PROs. METHODS AND RESULTS: Assessment of Patterns of Patient-Reported Outcomes in Adults with Congenital Heart disease - International Study (APPROACH-IS) was a cross-sectional, observational study, in which 4028 patients from 15 countries in 5 continents were enrolled...

Introduction: Sexual dysfunctions (SDs) are common, but often underestimated symptoms in men with multiple sclerosis (MS). The most common sexual complaint in a multiple sclerosis male is erectile dysfunction (ED). The aim of this observational, cross-sectional study was to assess the prevalence of erectile dysfunction (ED) and its relationship with neurological disability, depression, urodynamic findings and lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) in these patients. Material and methods: From January 2014 to January 2016, there were 101 consecutive male patients with a diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis according to the McDonald revised criteria and stable sexual relationships were included...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the long-term reported clinical outcomes after photovaporization of the prostate (PVP) with the XPS-GreenLight laser in patients with symptomatic benign prostatic enlargement (BPE). DESIGN, SETTING, AND PARTICIPANTS: A prospective longitudinal study was performed for all consecutive patients with BPE who underwent PVP at our institution between 2010 and 2012. Patient-reported clinical outcomes were assessed at 1 mo, 3 mo, 12 mo, and 57 mo using International Prostate Symptoms Score, International Continence Society, and International Index of Erectile Function short-form questionnaires...

INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVE: Lower urinary tract (LUT) and voiding dysfunction constitute a large percentage of pediatric urology referrals. Children with urinary incontinence unresponsive to behavioral modifications and traditional pharmacotherapy including anticholinergics and alpha blockers remain a challenge. We evaluated the impact of imipramine on treatment outcomes in children with refractory incontinence. STUDY DESIGN: Children ≤18 years of age with refractory non-neurogenic daytime incontinence prescribed imipramine were identified...

BACKGROUND: Daytime incontinence and enuresis are common problems in otherwise healthy children, and negatively influence their social lives and self-esteem. Motivation for treatment is often a real clinical problem. Children's experiences of their incontinence treatments have not been previously described. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to describe children's experiences of the Voiding School intervention as a treatment for their incontinence. STUDY DESIGN: A qualitative, descriptive focus-group study with a purposive sample was conducted at a Finish university hospital in 2014...

OBJECTIVES: To analyze the association between the anteroposterior hiatal diameter and pelvic organ prolapse and to determine whether 2-dimensional translabial ultrasonography can evaluate hiatal ballooning by measuring the anteroposterior diameter. METHODS: This study was a retrospective analysis of 312 women seen for lower urinary tract symptoms or pelvic organ prolapse between December 2014 and July 2016. All women had an International Continence Society (ICS) Pelvic Organ Prolapse Quantification (POP-Q) system examination and 4-dimensional translabial ultrasonography...

Marleen van den Heijkant, Guy Bogaert
CONTEXT: Epidemiological studies have demonstrated rates of lower urinary tract (LUT) symptoms in school-aged children as high as 20%. Symptoms of LUT may have significant social consequences. The diagnosis of LUT symptoms in children is mainly based on the subjective impression, and it is therefore important to translate the clinical impression into a structured LUT terminology. OBJECTIVE: To have a view, as a pediatric urologist and a urologist, of the LUT terminology proposed by the Standardization Committee of the International Children Continence Society...

According to the International Children's Continence Society (ICCS) guidelines for the treatment of daytime urinary incontinence (DUI) in children and adolescents, the first-line intervention for all types of DUI is standard urotherapy (SU). Despite this recommendation there is still no meta-analysis available on the effectiveness of SU. The aim of this study is to provide a meta-analytic evaluation of the intervention. This meta-analysis is based on Odds Ratios (OR) and consists of 26 patient samples out of 19 studies (N = 1609), collected from well-established medical databases...

BACKGROUND: Since 1988, numerous allergen immunotherapy guidelines (AIT-GLs) have been developed by national and international organizations to guide physicians in AIT. Even so, AIT is still severely underused. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate AIT-GLs with AGREE-II, developed in 2010 by McMaster University methodologists to comprehensively evaluate GL quality. METHODS: Allergist, from different continents, knowledgeable in AIT and AGREE-II trained were selected into the project team...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: The objective was to determine the association between body mass index (BMI) and symptoms and signs of female pelvic organ prolapse (POP). METHODS: An observational cross-sectional study of 964 archived datasets of women seen for symptoms and signs of lower urinary tract and pelvic organ dysfunction between September 2011 and February 2014 at a tertiary urogynaecology centre in Australia was carried out. An in-house standardised interview, the International Continence Society Pelvic Organ Prolapse Quantification (ICS POP-Q) and 4-D translabial ultrasound, followed by analysis of ultrasound volumes for pelvic organ descent and hiatal area on Valsalva, were performed, blinded against other data...

CONTEXT: Enuresis is a common and possibly underestimated condition. While 5-10% of school-aged children suffer from the condition, a lack of background knowledge may impede timely child-adapted and successful therapy.

AIMS: To assess prevalence of urinary incontinence (UI) after radical prostatectomy (RP) and to analyze which preoperative characteristics of the patients have influence on UI. METHODS: Between 2002 and 2012, 746 consecutive patients underwent RP for clinically localized prostate cancer.

BACKGROUND: Cardiovascular implantable electronic devices (CIEDs) can be life-saving. However, complications from CIED infection can be life-threatening, often requiring device removal. Despite publication of CIED infection management guidelines, there remains marked variation in clinical practice. OBJECTIVE: To better understand and quantify these differences, we conducted a multinational survey of practitioners of CIED management. METHODS: An electronic survey was sent to Heart Rhythm Society members, spanning 70 countries across six continents...
