To evaluate the effectiveness of a new method of treatment for stress urinary incontinence in women using an ER: YAG laser in SMOOTH mode and investigate pathophysiological and pathomorphological changes induced by erbium laser.
To evaluate the safety and efficacy of autologous adult live cultured buccal epithelial cells (AALBEC) in treatment and management of bulbar urethral stricture in men.
This was a prospective, multi-center, open-label, single-arm phase 2b study.
Objective evaluation of bladder capacity (BC) in children with lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) is important for recognizing types of bladder dysfunction. Bladder capacity is evaluated from 48-hour frequency/volume (48-h F/V) charts or by uroflowmetry with ultrasound post-void assessment.
The objective was to evaluate the intra-individual variability of uroflowmetry (UFM) in healthy control subjects and women suffering from stress, urge, and mixed urinary incontinence.
A total of 35 healthy controls (group A) and 105 women suffering from urinary incontinence were enrolled in the study.
Uncertainty remains whether it is best for men to void in a sitting or standing position. The objective of this study is to evaluate the effect of standing and sitting voiding position on uroflowmetry parameters and post void residual urine (PVRU) in patients with lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) due to benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH) and healthy men.
The working group initiated by the ICS Standardisation Steering Committee has updated the International Continence Society Standard "Good Urodynamic Practice" published in 2002.
On the basis of the manuscript: "ICS standard to develop evidence-based standards," a new ICS Standard was developed in the period from December 2013 to December 2015.
BERKELEY, CA (UroToday.com) - The cerebral palsy patient population is a heterogeneous group, and there are few studies addressing the issue of lower urinary tract symptoms in this population. The prevalence of lower urinary tract dysfunction is very high in patients with cerebral palsy and the pediatrician may have doubt, either in making a simple clinical diagnosis of the condition or whether to resort to invasive tests such as urodynamics.
Benign prostrate hyperplasia (BPH) is a leading source of healthcare problem in aging men around the world including India. Both International Prostate Symptom Score (IPSS) and New Visual Prostate Symptom Score (VPSS) are used to assess the lower urinary tracts symptoms (LUTSs) in men.
The objective is to study the effect of tamsulosin within hours after the first dose and its prediction of the future improvement of LUTS.
From May 2016 until August 2017, 340 patients aged over 40 years with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH)-related symptoms were prospectively enrolled; 0.
The goal of this study was to evaluate the outcome of Tension-free Vaginal Tape Obturator (TVT-O) operation in the treatment of urodynamic stress incontinence (USI) in obese females, with respect to uroflowmetric changes, success rate and postoperative complications.
To determine if pressure-flow study (PFS) parameters, including flow index (FI) calculated by dividing average urethral flow by maximal urethral flow, increase the accuracy of urodynamic studies in the diagnosis of overactive bladder (OAB).
The aim of our study was to analyze whether uroflowmetry parameters are helpful in diagnosing overactive bladder (OAB). The working hypothesis was that the flow curves of patients with OAB symptoms would appear as a sharp peak flow rate with a short duration and high amplitude, lasting only for a short period during urgency sensation, followed by reduced urine flow.
To define a uroflowmetry-based non-invasive predictive tool for the primary diagnosis of urethral stricture disease.
A total of 300 male patients (150 with urethral stricture disease and 150 with benign prostatic obstruction), treated surgically between 2005 and 2015, and 75 healthy males were included in this study.
