OBJECTIVES: To assess the association between triglyceride (TG)/high density lipoprotein (HDL) ratio and benign prostate hyperplasia/lower urinary tract symptoms (BPH/LUTS). METHODS: Four hundred patients who were admitted to the Urology Clinic between January and December 2014 with complaints of BPH/LUTS were enrolled in this cross-sectional study. Patients were divided into two groups according to their International Prostate Symptom Score and prostate volume (PV)...

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...

OBJECTIVES: To investigate the impact of neck circumference (NC) in the treatment of bening prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) patients with metabolic syndrome (MtS). Additionally, we determined dose response to alpha-blockers and cut-off values for NC and waist circumference (WC), in these patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Non-randomized, open-labelled, and multi-centre study was conducted between March 2014 and September 2015. The BPH patients were enrolled and were divided into 2 groups: with MtS (Group 1; n=94) and without MtS (Group 2; n=103)...

OBJECTIVES: To explore whether serum and urinary advanced glycation end-products (AGEs) are related to urinary symptoms and bladder dysfunctions in diabetic patients. METHODS: Forty-seven patients with type 2 Diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) were enrolled. LUTS evaluation was performed by IPSS (International Prostatic Symptoms Score), QoL (quality of life), OAB (overactive bladder). ICI-SF (International Consultation on Incontinence - short form) quaestionneires; ultrasound examination, evaluation of postvoid residual (PVR), uroflowmetry, cystometry with pressure-flow study (PFS) were performed to detect bladder dysfunctions...

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the efficacy and adverse events (AE) of flexibly adding on oxybutynin ER in patients with overactive bladder (OAB) refractory to monotherapy with the first muscarinic antagonist. METHODS: A total of 129 patients with refractory OAB were enrolled in a prospective, open-label protocol. Inclusion criteria were persistent symptoms or partial response to 3-month behavioral therapy and an optimized dose of one antimuscarinic agent. At baseline, weeks 4, and 12 after the oxybutynin ER (5-15 mg once a day) was flexibly added, we assessed the OAB symptom indexes and Patient Perception of Bladder Condition, uroflowmetry, and post-void residual, along with the therapeutic effect, AE, and tolerability...

OBJECTIVE: To examine whether voided volume (VV) could change the uroflow patterns and result in children with lower urinary tract dysfunction (LUTD). METHODS: Between January 2009 and May 2010, the children with LUTD were enrolled in this study. Uroflowmetry (UF) combined with electromyography (EMG) was performed two times and was reviewed independently by two urologists. UF-EMG curves were classified as bell, staccato, intermittent, plateau, and tower. Patients' expected bladder capacity (EBC) and VV were recorded...

INTRODUCTION: We evaluated sequential postoperative voiding function of two types of sling procedures (Monarc(®) and ALIGN(®)) in patients with stress urinary incontinence. METHODS: Ninety-one women diagnosed with urodynamic stress incontinence were randomly assigned to the study. All enrolled patients underwent Monarc or ALIGN procedure. They were postoperatively evaluated at one day, one week, one month, three months, 12 months, and 24 months. The voiding function was evaluated with uroflowmetry and post-void residual urine...

OBJECTIVE: The Buccal Mucosa (BM) UrethroPlasty (UP) is one of the preferred treatments for long or compli-cated urethral strictures. We propose the use of autologous Platelet Rich Plasma gel (aPRPg) in order to enhance to vascularization of BM graft and reduce the fibrous spongy. We report the outcome of our ten cases of bulbar and penile UP and the safety of this technique. Materials and metods: Ten patients underwent to BM UP with use of aPRP gel. Median age was 46. Stricture etiology was idiopathic, failed hypospadias and flogistic...

OBJECTIVES: Lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) and sexual dysfunction (SDys) are common problems that affect quality of life (QOL) in elderly men. In addition to prescribed drugs, many over-the-counter medications including supplements are used to treat QOL diseases. Phosphodiesterase inhibitors are reported to be effective for both LUTS and SDys by increasing nitric oxide levels. French maritime pine bark extract Pycnogenol(®), which is a potent nitric oxide donor, is reported to be effective for SDys...
