INTRODUCTION: The mid-urethral sling (MUS) procedure is the gold-standard for the surgical treatment of stress urinary incontinence (SUI). Urethro-vesical sling exposure is one of the most serious complications of this procedure. We describe the treatment and follow-up of 18 patients with bladder or urethral sling exposure. PATIENTS AND METHODS: This single-center, retrospective study assessed the diagnosis and management of MUS penetrating the lower urinary tract in 18 women...

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the relationship between the lengths of two regions of the intraprostatic urethral sphincter, the distal region (from the apex to the adenoma; AA) and the proximal region (from the adenoma to the verumontanum; AV) and prostate volume (PV) in patients with clinical benign prostate hyperplasia. METHODS: A total of 110 patients who underwent magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) prior to holmium laser enucleation of the prostate were enrolled. The lengths of two distinct intraprostatic urethral regions were measured on MRI, and we used multiple regression analysis to explore the association between these lengths and PV...

Urinary incontinence (UI) is a common symptom affecting almost one-third of adult women. UI can occur because of hypermobility or intrinsic sphincter deficiency of the urethra. Regardless its etiology, it is associated with poor quality of life and most of the incontinent women develop symptoms such as anxiety, depression, and social isolation over time. The synthetic midurethral sling (MUS) was first introduced in 1995 and quickly became the gold standard treatment for women with stress UI because of intrinsic sphincter deficiency and/or urethral hypermobility...

In daily medical practice, we occasionally encounter a foreign body present in the urinary bladder. However, the occurrence of vesical perforation caused by a foreign body is rare. A 53-year-old man with vesical pain and macrohematuria was referred to our department because of the presence of a foreign body in his urinary bladder. He seemed to have inserted the foreign body from the urethra during use of a stimulant drug according to his story. Cystoscopy revealed that the plastic foreign body had a few barbs and had penetrated the bladder through the left lateral wall...

Male catheterisation can be difficult to perform, especially in patients with an enlarged prostate gland or other potentially obstructive conditions in the lower urinary tract. Repeated and unsuccessful catheterisations, as well as causing trauma, pain and distress, can cause other conditions such as urethral strictures and 'false passages' (when the catheter is pushed through the urethral wall instead of passing down the urethra), which then require more costly interventions to correct. With an increasingly ageing population these complications are expected to rise, putting added strain on an already stretched health service...

The aim of the present study was to determine whether it was possible to repair urethral defects with a material of adipose mesenchymal stem cells (ADMSCs)‑porous silk fibroin (SF). A total of 39 male New Zealand white rabbits were randomly divided into a control group, an SF group and a bromodeoxyuridine (BrdU)‑labeled ADMSCs‑SF group (SSF group; n=13/group). Defects were made by resecting the posterior urethral wall. The defects in the SF and SSF groups were repaired using SF and BrdU‑labeled ADMSCs‑SF materials respectively...

BACKGROUND: Prostate stiffness and increased collagen content both associate with the presence of urinary symptoms in men but mechanisms responsible, including impact of age and androgens, are unknown. Dogs develop prostate-related urinary dysfunction similar to humans, but mechanisms are also unknown. Mice have been used to examine how prostatic collagen accumulation affects voiding but whether mouse prostatic collagen organization resembles human or dog has not been evaluated. Here, we have constructed the first comprehensive, comparative maps of collagen architecture in canine, human, and mouse prostate and test whether canine prostatic collagen content is increased by aging and reduced by castration...

Yumeng Zhang, Kaile Zhang, Qiang Fu
Treatment of male urethral trauma is always a challenging problem. In China, as the incidence of urethral trauma keeps rising, more and more studies relating to this are being published. To compare the outcome of different emergency treatments in China and other countries, we searched Chinese and English literature about this topic in the past 16 years. A total of 167 studies involving 5314 patients were included, with 144 in Chinese and 23 in English. All studies were retrospective in nature. Based on the analyses, surgical methods include open realignment, endoscopic realignment and primary repair, and we summarized and compared the success rate and complications (mainly erectile dysfunction and incontinence) of each method...

Urethral stricture disease is increasingly common occurring in about 1% of males over the age of 55. The stricture tissue is rich in myofibroblasts and multi-nucleated giant cells which are thought to be related to stricture formation and collagen synthesis. An increase in collagen is associated with the loss of the normal vasculature of the normal urethra. The actual incidence differs based on worldwide populations, geography, and income. The stricture aetiology, location, length and patient's age and comorbidity are important in deciding the course of treatment...

Introduction: Duplicated ureter or Duplex Collecting System is a congenital condition in which the ureteric bud, the embryological origin of the ureter, arises twice, resulting in two ureters draining a single kidney. This congenital anomaly is rare, and even rarer when the duplex system with ectopic ureter is present. This type of congenital anomaly is even more rarely diagnosed and surgically treated in adulthood. Case report: This case report presents a case of a 32-year-old male, who had a duplex collecting system with two ureters on the left side...

B Qian, H Zhao, B Xu, M Lan
BACKGROUND: Urethral warmer and cryoheater are invented and applied in cryoablation to overcome urethral cryoinjury, but these devices cannot be fixed and precisely control the released heat which excessively reduces the effective ablation area. Current warmers enlarge the operation difficulty and decrease the precision in temperature control. OBJECTIVE: A reformed catheter termed urethral heater aims to protect the urethra and simultaneously control the released heat so as to meet the aid of doctors' convenient operation in effective therapy, device fixation and precise heat controllability...

OBJECTIVE: Bladder cancer recurrence after management of upper tract urothelial carcinoma (UTUC) is a common disease. Although the incidence and risk factors for the development of noninvasive bladder tumor have been reported in many series, rare studies have reported on muscle invasive bladder cancer (MIBC) and its urethral recurrence. We aimed to report the incidence, risk factors and survival rate for the development of MIBC and urethral tumors after surgical management of UTUC. MATERIAL AND METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed patients who were surgically treated for UTUC from 1983 to 2013...
