PURPOSE: Identify factors affecting constipation and post surgical improvement in patients of myelopathy. METHODS: Sixty-four patients with myelopathy due to extradural spine pathologies (47 cervical; 17 thoracic spine, male:female-5.4:1 with mean age 46.16) underwent evaluation including Bristol stool scale (BSS), PFT and uroflowmetry. All cases were evaluated by gastroenterologist to rule out any intrinsic bowel disease. Chi-square test, Kruskal-Wallis/Mann-Whitney U test and Wilcoxon signed rank test were employed to ascertain statistical significance...

Following three noninferiority randomised controlled trials from different countries showing exactly the same results, it is time to translate this evidence into practice. In women undergoing primary surgery for pure stress urinary incontinence or stress-predominant mixed urinary incontinence without voiding difficulties, careful office evaluation including uroflowmetry and postvoid residual urine can replace invasive investigations such as cystometry, saving patients from embarrassment and a risk of urinary infection...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: We evaluated changes in voiding function at 3 months after laparoscopic sacrocolpopexy (LSC) for advanced pelvic organ prolapse (POP) patients and identified risk predictors for postoperative voiding dysfunction. METHODS: Seventy-six patients with advanced POP who underwent LSC were enrolled in this retrospective cohort study. Pre- and postoperative objective voiding function was assessed by uroflowmetry plus postvoid residual (PVR) volumes...

Before making a treatment decision for patients presenting with a urethral stricture, following anamnesis and general examinations, appropriate diagnostics are necessary. This includes at least uroflowmetry and cystourethrography and the use of ultrasound and cystoscopy may be of additional help. The curative treatment of a urethral stricture is always an operation. Besides endourological procedures, open surgery for urethral reconstruction is also performed. This article aims to give an overview about the necessary diagnostic measures and the pros and cons of the different operative therapies...

INTRODUCTION: Many patients present to urology and emergency departments for acute renal colic complaints. There are many different imaging studies that can be used in patients with a pre-diagnosis of acute renal colic. In this study, we would like to assess the efficacy of using clinical and laboratory results in patients with flank pain complaint as a predictive factor of urinary system stone disease. MATERIALS AND METHODS: All patients were assessed using spinal non-contrast complete abdominal computerized tomography and urine analysis...

Indroduction: Benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH) is the most commonly diagnosed benign adenoma which causes serious clinical symptoms by bladder outlet obstruction. BPH patients suffer from negative changes in their quality of life and restriction of their daily activities due to the disease symptoms. Our main objective in this study is to evaluate the relationship between BPH and LUTS as described by International Prostate Symptoms Score and objective non-invasive parameters related to BPH. MATERIALS AND METHODS: 238 Patients over 40 years with clinical BPH, LUTS and/or prostate volumes greater than 25 ml who presented to urology department were included in the study...

The aim of this study was to verify the validity, feasibility, and the functional results, by uroflowmetry, of Tubularized proximallyincised plate technique in selected case of distal/midshaft hypospadias. Out of 120 patients scheduled to undergo TIP (or Snodgrass) procedure, 23 were selected between January 2013 and January 2016 (19.1%). This case series comprised 16 patients with distal and 7 with midshaft hypospadias. Mean age at surgery was 2.9 years. The inclusion criteria were a deep and wide glandular groove and a proximal narrow urethral plate...

PURPOSE: Recently, intrinsic sphincter deficiency (ISD) has been identified as one important factor in the outcome of stress urinary incontinence (SUI) related surgery. Clinical factors that can predict ISD are uncommon. The aim of this study was to determine predictive clinical factors for ISD in female patients with SUI. METHODS: The patients were classified into 3 groups according to the value of Valsalva leak point pressure (VLPP)>90 cm H2O (anatomical incontinence, AI), between 61 and 90 cm H2O (equivocal, EV), and <60 cm H2O (ISD)...

PURPOSE: The aims of this study were to investigate the prevalence of upper tract involvement in ketamine-associated uropathy, and to determine the predictors of hydronephrosis in patients with a history of ketamine abuse. METHODS: This was a cross-sectional study of a prospective cohort of patients with ketamine-associated uropathy. Data including demographics, pattern of ketamine abuse, pelvic pain and urgency or frequency (PUF) symptom score, uroflowmetry (UFM) parameters, serum renal function, and liver function tests were collected...

INTRODUCTION: Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) is a common entity among men over 40 years of age with significant disability. It is a condition that occurs when the enlarged prostate gland compresses the urethra leading to Bladder Outlet Obstruction (BOO). AIM: To correlate the size of the prostate gland and uroflowmetry parameters in patients with Lower Urinary Tract Symptoms (LUTS). MATERIALS AND METHODS: One hundred and twenty randomly selected male patients, from the ages of 41 to 70 years, with LUTS, and underwent trans abdominal sonogram and uroflowmetry were included in the study...

PURPOSE: The aim of this study is to evaluate and compare the effectiveness of animated vs. non-animated biofeedback therapy in the treatment of dysfunctional voiding (DV) in the pediatric age group. METHODS: In this study, children with DV were randomly assigned for animated and non-animated biofeedback therapy. Age, voiding dysfunction symptom scores (VDSS), urinary ultrasound and uroflowmetry parameters such as electromyography (EMG) activity, voided volumes, post voiding residual urine volume (PVR) and maximum flow rate (Qmax) were evaluated...

OBJECTIVES: Our aim was to examine correlation between Post-void residual urine (PVR) after uroflowmetry and random PVR. METHODS: Male patients reporting to the Urology outpatient clinic with LUTS were selected. Patients' age, prostate volume, bladder capacity, voided volume, maximum flow rate, average flow rate, random PVR and PVR after uroflowmetry were recorded. We evaluated the correlations between these parameters. Also we assessed if there was a difference between random PVR and PVR after uroflowmetry...

Primary bladder neck obstruction (PBNO) represents an inappropriate or inadequate relaxation of the bladder neck during micturition. Based on the observation of an increased rate of postural imbalances in male patients with PBNO, we hypothesized a possible role of an unbalanced biomechanics of the pelvis on urethral sphincters activity. Our aim was to identify kinematic imbalances, usually disregarded in PBNO patients, and which could eventually be involved in the etiopathogenesis of the disease. Seven male adult patients (39...

OBJECTIVE: To determine the mean difference in maximum urine flow rate and post-void residual urine volume in sitting as well as standing voiding position in healthy males. METHODS: This descriptive, cross-sectional study was conducted at the Department of Urology, Indus Hospital, Karachi, from October 2013 to March 2014, and comprised healthy volunteers enrolled using non-probability, consecutive sampling technique. Each volunteer was asked to perform uroflowmetry in sitting and standing positions on two separate days, and a post-void residual volume was assessed after each test...

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the effects of preoperative low maximal flow rate (Qmax) on voiding trials after the midurethral sling (MUS) procedure in women with stress urinary incontinence (SUI). METHODS: One hundred and sixty-eight women who underwent MUS procedure were enrolled. Preoperative free uroflowmetry was performed and patients were divided by Qmax. Low Qmax was defined as a Qmax under 15 mL/sec with voided volume at least 150 mL. Surgical results, failure of voiding trial, and postoperative uroflowmetry parameters were compared between the groups...
