Emphisematous cystitis with multiorganic embolism: Case report.

CONCLUSIONS: Emphysematous cystitis is a rare condition but potentially severe. Prognosis depends on a rapid diagnosis and treatment. PMID: 28300035 [PubMed - in process]

We report the case of a 59-year-old man presenting with EPS who underwent enterolysis at the age of 50, following 15 years of peritoneal dialysis (PD) and peritonitis. During the patient's first surgery, complete surgical enterolysis could not be performed due to severe intestinal adhesions with a deteriorated/calcified small bowel. Six months after the surgery, the obstructive bowel symptoms occurred several times a year. Nine years later, the patient suffered cystitis-like symptoms and fecal discharge from the urinary meatus. The patient was subsequently diagnosed with EPS recurrence with ureteroileal fistula between the...

CONCLUSIONS: The apoptotic effect of the urine of patients with interstitial cystitis could be a marker of disease, thus differentiating patients with interstitial cystitis from patients with chronic pelvic pain. The effect could also provide an objective measure of symptom severity. PMID: 29132932 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Abstract Cav3.2 T-type Ca(2+) channel activity is suppressed by zinc that binds to the extracellular histidine-191 of Cav3.2, and enhanced by H2S that interacts with zinc. Cav3.2 in nociceptors is upregulated in an activity-dependent manner. The enhanced Cav3.2 activity by H2S formed by the upregulated cystathionine-γ-lyase (CSE) is involved in the cyclophosphamide (CPA)-induced cystitis-related bladder pain in mice. We thus asked if zinc deficiency affects the cystitis-related bladder pain in mice by altering Cav3.2 function and/or expression. Dietary zinc deficiency for 2 weeks greatly decreased zinc conce...

The patient is a 27-year-old Caucasian woman: slender, well-groomed. She is sitting in the office of her urologist, and she is unconsciously twisting her hands as she interrupts the doctor, having finally worked up the nerve. “I know you told me to expect some pain for a while after the lithotripsy. But I’ve been having pain in my bladder, even when I don’t think there are any stones. It started two years ago, before the stones. It feels like pressure, and it really stings when I urinate. It especially hurts when I’ve taken naproxen or loratadine, or if I have caffeine, or if I get dehydrated at all...

Abstract Chronic pelvic pain causes significant patient morbidity and is a bane to clinicians. Using a murine neurogenic cystitis model that recapitulates key aspects of interstitial cystitis/bladder pain syndrome (IC), we recently showed that pseudorabies virus (PRV) induces severe pelvic allodynia in BALB/c mice, relative to C57BL/6 mice. Here, we report that a quantitative trait locus (QTL) analysis of PRV-induced allodynia in F2CxB progeny identified a polymorphism on chromosome 13, rs6314295, significantly associated with allodynia (LOD=3.11). The nearby gene encoding acyloxyacyl hydrolase, (Aoah), was induce...

AbstractIntroductionWe sought to characterize changes in healthcare spending associated with the onset of 22 endometriosis-related comorbidities.MethodsWomen aged 18 –49 years with endometriosis (N = 180,278) were extracted from 2006–2015 de-identified Clinformatics® DataMart claims data. For 22 comorbidities, comorbidity patients were identified on the basis of having a first comorbidity diagnosis after their initial endometriosis diagnosis. Controls were identified on the basis of having no comorbidity diagnosis and were matched 1:1 to comorbidity patients on demographics and baseline spend...

lles Duverlie The BK virus (BKPyV) is a member of the Polyomaviridae family first isolated in 1971. BKPyV causes frequent infections during childhood and establishes persistent infections with minimal clinical implications within renal tubular cells and the urothelium. However, reactivation of BKPyV in immunocompromised individuals may cause serious complications. In particular, with the implementation of more potent immunosuppressive drugs in the last decade, BKPyV has become an emerging pathogen in kidney and bone marrow transplant recipients where it often causes associated nephropathy and haemorrhagic cystitis, res...

Haemorrhagic radiation cystitis (HRC) is a late complication of pelvic radiotherapy. Severe cases are difficult to treat due to persistent or recurrent bleeding, despite urological and hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT). However, wound healing requires a good nutritional status. In this respect, we aimed at analyzing the nutritional status of patients with HRC prior to the onset of HBOT and at highlighting predictive nutritional factors of outcome.
