STUDY DESIGN: prospective study OBJECTIVE:To evaluate repeatability of residual urine(RU)volume measurement(RUM)in patients with lumbar degenerative disorders. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA: RUM by abdominal echo is a non-invasive modality to evaluate lower urinary tract disorder(LUTD), repeatability of which is not found in urological disorders. Additionally, its repeatability has not been confirmed in spinal disorders. The authors examined repeatability of RUM for evaluation of LUTD in patients with lumbar degenerative disorders...

BACKGROUND: Although angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors (ACEI) and angiotensin-II receptor blockers (ARB) have been shown to preserve residual kidney function in a select group of Asian patients undergoing continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (PD) in two small randomized clinical trials, the effectiveness of these drugs has yet to be demonstrated in a more diverse population of patients with multiple comorbid conditions. We investigated the association between ACEI/ARB use and development of recorded anuria in a cohort of patients initiating PD in the U...

Schistosomes are easily transmitted and high chance of repeat infection, so if control strategies based on targeted mass drug administration (MDA) are to succeed it is essential to have a test that is sensitive, accurate and simple to use. It is known and regularly demonstrated that praziquantel does not always eliminate an infection so in spite of the successes of control programs a residual of the reservoir survives to re-infect snails. The issue of diagnostic sensitivity becomes more critical in the assessment of program effectiveness...

BACKGROUND: Class III radical hysterectomy (RH III)_plus pelvic lymphadenectomy is the standard surgery for early stage cervical cancer (CC) patients, the 5 year survival rate is about 90%, but pelvic floor disorders especially bladder dysfunction are common due to damaged vessels and nerve fibers following surgery. Transcutaneous electrical stimulation (TENS) treatment has been used to treat bladder disorders for many years, but its effect on cervical cancer patients, the best treatment time point and stimulated protocol, had never been assessed...

Heterozygous mutations in UMOD encoding the urinary protein uromodulin are the most common genetic cause of autosomal dominant tubulointerstitial kidney disease (ADTKD). We describe the exceptional case of a patient from a consanguineous family carrying a novel homozygous UMOD mutation (p.C120Y) affecting a conserved cysteine residue within the EGF-like domain III of uromodulin. Comparison of heterozygote and homozygote mutation carriers revealed a gene dosage effect with unprecedented low levels of uromodulin and aberrant uromodulin fragments in the urine of the homozygote proband...

Magnetic lateral flow strip (MLFS) based on magnetic bead (MB) and smart phone camera has been developed for quantitative detection of cocaine (CC) in urine samples. CC and CC-bovine serum albumin (CC-BSA) could competitively react with MB-antibody (MB-Ab) of CC on the surface of test line of MLFS. The color of MB-Ab conjugate on the test line relates to the concentration of target in the competition immunoassay format, which can be used as a visual signal. Furthermore, the color density of the MB-Ab conjugate can be transferred into digital signal (gray value) by a smart phone, which can be used as a quantitative signal...

The use of pesticides in Mexican agriculture creates an interest in learning about the presence of these substances in different environmental matrices. Glyphosate (GLY) is an herbicide widely used in the state of Campeche, located in the Mayan zone in the western Yucatan peninsula. Despite the fact that GLY is considered a non-toxic pesticide to humans, its presence in water bodies through spillage, runoff, and leaching are a risk to human health or biota that inhabit these ecosystems. In the present study, glyphosate residues were determined in groundwater, bottled drinking water, and the urine of subsistence farmers from various localities of the Hopelchén municipality in Campeche...

The purpose of this study was to investigate the incidence and risk factors of male urinary tract infection (UTI) after urodynamic study (UDS). A total of 854 consecutive male patients, who underwent UDS at Peking Union Medical College Hospital from January 2010 to March 2016, were recruited in this study. Two to four weeks before the examination, urinalysis with bacterial culture was performed. Patients with negative results were selected for UDS. Immediately before the examination, urinalysis was repeated to rule out any preoperative UTI...

OBJECTIVE: To numerous endoscopic techniques have been described for the treatment of benign prostate enlargement (BPE). The plasma-button enucleation of the prostate (B-TUEP) is a successful treatment option because the large surface creates a fast enucleation process, vaporization and concomitant haemostasis. The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of bipolar button electrode transurethral adenoma enucleation (B-TUEP) in saline solution. The second endpoint was to determine the change of IPSS, PVR, IEFF-5, TrUS and PSA...

BACKGROUND: Spina bifida is a common cause of pediatric neurogenic bladder. It causes renal failure in almost 100% of patients if the associated detrusor sphincter dyssynergia (DSD) is inadequately managed. Detrusor instability and high detrusor pressures (Figure) have been implicated as the major factors predictive of renal damage in these patients. Urodynamic studies provide early identification of "at risk" kidneys so that appropriate intervention can be made. However, the role in post-operative patients of spina bifida who have no clinical manifestations remains unclear...

INTRODUCTION: The angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) gene insertion or deletion in long-term hemodialysis patients may be associated with corrected QT interval prolongation, leading to fatal arrhythmias. The ACE D allele is known to increase the risk of malignant ventricular arrhythmias and is also associated with increased QT dispersion after myocardial infarction and hypertension. This study aimed to evaluate the relationship between ACE gene polymorphism and QT dispersion in hemodialysis patients...
