REVIEW
Kwonsoo Chun, Su Jin Kim, Sung Tae Cho
Voiding dysfunction is a common disease that contributes to a lower quality of life and has an increased prevalence in the elderly population. Noninvasive and objective methods such as uroflowmetry (UFM) and voiding diaries (VDs) are essential for exact diagnosis and effective treatment of this condition because patients with different causes of voiding dysfunction can complain of the same lower urinary tract symptoms. Further, different treatment options can be determined based on the diagnosis made from these symptoms...

PURPOSE: As the elderly population increases, a growing number of patients have lower urinary tract symptom (LUTS)/benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). The aim of this study was to develop decision support formulas and nomograms for the prediction of bladder outlet obstruction (BOO) and for BOO-related surgical decision-making, and to validate them in patients with LUTS/BPH. METHODS: Patient with LUTS/BPH between October 2004 and May 2014 were enrolled as a development cohort...

OBJECTIVES: The objective was to develop an underactive bladder (UAB) model in primates and to evaluate the potential of prostanoid EP2 and EP3 receptor dual agonist ONO-8055 to become a therapeutic agent for UAB. METHODS: A surgical procedure resembling radical hysterectomy was performed on female cynomolgus monkeys. Subsequently, in vitro muscle strip studies were performed using bladder muscle strips from normal monkeys and monkeys that underwent surgery. In addition, uroflowmetric data were obtained at specified days after the surgery...

AIM: Our aim was to determine the efficiency of the Medication Compliance Self-Report Inventory (MASRI) in self-reporting antimuscarinic drug treatment compliance among women with urinary incontinence (UI). MATERIALS AND METHODS: The study assessed 347 women aged 18-65 (averaging 49.7) years with more than one urinary incontinence (UI) episode per day. Treatment compliance was tested at the beginning and at weeks 4, 8, and 12 using the MASRI, the Brief Medication Questionnaire (BMQ), and visual pill counts...

OBJECTIVE: To determine the correlation between severity of symptoms using the International Prostate Symptom Score (IPSS) and uroflowmetry in patients with lower urinary tract symptoms-benign prostatic hyperplasia (LUTS-BPH). PATIENTS AND METHODS: We prospectively collected data from 51 consecutive men, who presented with LUTS-BPH at the Nnamdi Azikiwe University Teaching Hospital, Nnewi, Nigeria, from January 2012 through December, 2014. Symptom severity was assessed using the self-administered IPSS questionnaire...

The aim of our work was to evaluate the long-term changes in symptoms (median 42 months) and to analyze data for any negative predictive factors for the application of the procedure, in patients who underwent to urethroplasty with dorsal buccal mucosa graft. During the period from 2010 to 2015 27 patients were examined. Than they underwent urethroplasty using dorsal buccal mucosa graft (graft of 4 x 2.5 cm). The evaluation of symptoms has been addressed through the application of the IPSS Quality of Life Questionnaire (International Prostatic Symptoms Score) and the evaluation of urinary flow has been carried out by a comparative analysis between the pre- and post-operative uroflowmetry...

OBJECTIVES: To investigate the change of bladder wall hypertrophy to relieve bladder outlet obstruction (BOO) by treatment with 5α-reductase inhibitor. METHODS: Men who have BOO confirmed by urodynamic study (BOO index ≥40) were treated with dutasteride 0.5 mg once a day for 6 months. We measured ultrasound estimated bladder weight (UEBW), UEBW divided by body surface area (UEBW/BSA), and bladder wall thickness (BWT) before and after treatment. Changes in LUTS parameters were assessed by using the International Prostate Symptom Score, uroflowmetry, residual urine volume, prostate volume, serum prostate-specific antigen (PSA), and LUTS outcome scores (LOS)...

OBJECTIVE: Underactive bladder is frequently encountered in elderly patients. It may result from detrusor underactivity (DU) or low detrusor contractility due to a urethral sphincter inhibitory effect. This study analyzed the video-urodynamic study (VUDS) characteristics of patients with underactive bladder in a large cohort of men with lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS). METHODS: Male patients with LUTS who had failed the initial treatment were consecutively enrolled...

A 48-year-old man admitted to the urology outpatient clinic with major symptoms of right-side pain and intermittent lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTSs) such as low urine flow rate, dysuria, and frequency. Uroflowmetry showed low urine flow, and laboratory tests revealed no pathology. Ultrasound (US) showed a 7 cm calcific mass above the bladder and a kidney cyst with a diameter of 5.3 cm in the upper pole of the right kidney. Enhanced computed tomography confirmed the US findings. Laparoscopic transperitoneal renal cyst decortication was performed...

General uroflowmetry method involves the risk of nosocomial infections or time and effort of the recording. Medical institutions, therefore, need to measure voided volume simply and hygienically. Multiple cylindrical model that can estimate the fluid flow rate from the photographed image using camera has been proposed in an earlier study. This study implemented a flow rate estimation by using a general-purpose camera system (Raspberry Pi Camera Module) and the multiple cylindrical model. However, large amounts of noise in extracting liquid region are generated by the variation of the illumination when performing measurements in the bathroom...

PURPOSE: We investigated the efficacy and safety of a readjustable midurethral sling (Remeex system) for stress urinary incontinence with female voiding dysfunction. MATERIALS AND METHODS: From May 2007 to December 2015, 151 women received the Remeex system. We excluded patients who presented with pelvic organ prolapse and/or who missed the regular follow-up. Finally, 102 patients were included in the study, and we divided them into 2 groups: group A (n=74), who did not present with female voiding dysfunction and group B (n=28), who presented with female voiding dysfunction...

INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES: Type 2 diabetes mellitus, as a chronic systemic metabolic disease, is widely spread in the population of middle- aged men. Previously it has been proven the link between the presence of type 2 diabetes and the development of lower urinary tract symptoms in men. At the same time, middle-aged men are characterized by the appearance and progression of benign prostatic hyperplasia. MATERIAL AND METHODS: We performed a study of middle-aged men with type 2 diabetes to determine the interrelation of micturition disorders with deficiency of serum testosterone, in respect that the pathophysiology of prostatic hyperplasia is regarded as dysmetabolic dyshormonal state...

AIMS: To determine the effect of pelvic organ prolapse (POP) repair on post-operative detrusor overactivity (DO) in women who have underwent incontinence surgery, using multivariate analysis. METHODS: A retrospective study was carried out on a cohort of 105 women who underwent incontinence surgery. In 39 of the patients this surgery was associated with pelvic organ prolapse repair. Clinical and urodynamic data were collected pre- and 3 months post-operatively. A multivariate statistical analysis was performed to detect confounding factors which could influence on the risk factors associated with post-operative detrusor overactivity...
