To assess the prevalence, awareness, and quality of life (QOL) impact of symptoms suggestive of underactive bladder (UAB) in the USA.
A thirteen-item paper survey was mailed to 25,000 individuals 60 years or older living in the USA.
To retrospectively assess the diagnostic predictive value of clinical characteristics to improve the diagnostic accuracy of bladder detrusor underactivity (DU) among benign prostatic hyperplasia/lower urinary tract symptoms (BPH/LUTS) patients who cannot undergo urodynamic examinations.
We investigated changes in the levels of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) and nitric oxide (NO) in the urothelium of detrusor underactivity (DU) with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).
We prospectively enrolled 30 men who planned to undergo surgical treatment for BPH.
Underactive bladder (UAB) is a symptom syndrome reflecting the urodynamic observation of detrusor underactivity (DU), a voiding contraction of reduced strength and/or duration, leading to prolonged or incomplete bladder emptying.
We sought to determine if urodynamic study (UDS) predicted voiding outcomes in men with detrusor underactivity (DU) and benign prostatic enlargement (BPE) who underwent photovaporization of the prostate (PVP).
To investigate the effect of preoperative urodynamic detrusor underactivity (DUA) on transurethral surgery outcomes for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).
We systematically searched the online PubMed, Embase, and Cochrane Library databases for articles published between January 1989 and June 2017.
Spinal cord injury (SCI) usually affects younger age groups with male preponderance. The most common traumatic cause is road traffic accident followed by sports accidents and gun-shot injuries. Infections and vascular events make up non-traumatic causes.
Underactive bladder (UAB) is a symptom complex with poorly characterized causation. The aim of this study was to determine if clinical and UDS parameters differed between categories of presumed detrusor underactivity (DU) etiologies.
Underactive bladder (UAB) is considered the symptom complex associated with the urodynamic diagnosis of detrusor underactivity.
The aim of this research was to investigate the patient reported experience of the symptoms, signs, and impact of UAB.
Pressure flow studies are regarded as the gold standard for evaluating both bladder outlet obstruction and detrusor contractility, but none of the current methods for evaluating bladder contraction patterns are well validated.
In this review, we have looked at three important areas in understanding male lower urinary tract symptoms. These are improvement in terminology, detrusor underactivity, and nocturia. Benign prostatic hyperplasia leading to bladder outlet obstruction has been covered in a previous review.
To investigated the treatment outcome in this group of men with detrusor underactivity (DU) and voiding dysfunction who underwent transurethral resection or incision of the prostate (TURP or TUIP). DU usually affects decision making whether bladder outlet surgery is necessary.
To elucidate the treatment results and predictors for successful outcome in women with detrusor underactivity (DU) and stress urinary incontinence (SUI) undergoing suburethral sling procedure.
Medical records of women with coexistent SUI and DU treated with a suburethral sling were retrospectively reviewed and we analyzed the association between treatment outcome and baseline demographics including etiology of DU and urodynamic variables.
The contemporary management of stress urinary incontinence (SUI) has seen renewed interest in the use of autologous fascia for the formation of a retropubic suburethral sling. Traditionally, it has been used in only the most severe of incontinence cases, such as those women with intrinsic sphincter deficiency, or in patients requiring concomitant reconstructive procedures.
To review the current definitions, terminology, epidemiology and aetiology of detrusor underactivity (DU), with specific attention to the diagnostic criteria in use. In addition, we address the relation and the overlap between DU and bladder outlet obstruction (BOO).
To assess whether detrusor underactivity (DU) is a risk factor for voiding dysfunction (VD) after transobturator tape (TOT) and if a detrusor pressure at maximum flow (PdetQmax) value predicts postoperative VD in DU patients.
Detrusor underactivity (DU) is frequently encountered in elderly patients. Part of patients with DU might have bladder function recovery after treatment. This study investigated urinary proteins in these DU patients with and without bladder function recovery.
To describe the urodynamic characteristics of men with urinary retention, and to show the diverse treatment plans based on urodynamic findings.
We carried out a 3-year retrospective review of men with urinary retention who were referred to our clinic for urodynamic evaluation.
Storage phase bladder activity is a counter-intuitive observation of spontaneous contractions. They are potentially an intrinsic feature of the smooth muscle, but interstitial cells in the mucosa and the detrusor itself, as well as other muscular elements in the mucosa may substantially influence them.
