Patient knowledge of urethral stricture disease in a state sector South African Academic Hospital
ConclusionThis study demonstrates that the level of knowledge of own disease is unacceptably poor across the whole patient profile. Interventions to improve patient knowledge regarding urethral stricture disease is indicated.
CONCLUSION: Our findings lend credence to the hypothesis that Lactobacilli are important members of the healthy urine microbiome. Our data also suggest that the microbiomes of the urethra and bladder differ from one another. In conclusion, urine collection method results in different 16S-based NGS data, likely due to the sensitivity of NGS methods enabling detection of urethral bacteria present in voided but not catheterized urine specimens.

Conclusion: Ho laser ERBT is safe and feasible for complete resection of NMIBCs with no risk of obturator-nerve reflex and a high rate of detrusor-positive specimens.
ConclusionThe incidence of post-transplant UTI is similar in both developed and developing countries.E.coli is the most common pathogen in most of studies. Cadaveric donor and post-dialysis transplantation are defined as independent risk factors for post-transplant UTI. Further studies are still required to identify risk factors after kidney transplantation and UTI ’s importance for graft function and patient outcome.
Conclusions: Atropine is a cheap, easy-to-access, safe-to-use drug for reducing CRBD symptoms, without any observed adverse effects. Since it not only reduces CRBD symptoms but also has a positive effect on postoperative pain, it can be used safely to increase patient comfort in patients receiving general anesthesia and a urinary catheter.

CONCLUSION: En bloc transurethral resection using 980 nm laser is an effective and safe treatment option for non-muscle-invasive bladder cancer. Compared to the traditional TUR-Bt procedure, the procedure using 980 nm laser has fewer perioperative complications and similar oncological results.

Conclusion: Bladder filling is suspected to increase the sympathetic tone and cause a hiccup reflex. Bladder filling could be a factor triggering hiccups in pontine hemorrhage.
AbstractObjectiveTo access the surgical and oncological outcomes of simultaneous thulium laser enucleation of bladder tumor (ThuLEBT) and thulium laser enucleation of prostate (ThuLEP) in patients with non-muscle invasive bladder tumor (NMIBC) and benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).Patients and methodsBetween June 2009 and June 2017, 118 men with NMIBC who underwent simultaneous ThuLEBT and ThuLEP and fulfilled the inclusion criteria were matched with 118 patients who received ThuLEBT alone. Clinicopathological parameters, surgical outcome data and oncological outcomes were retrospectively analyzed and compared.ResultsThe ...
ConclusionSingle-use HC catheters improved HRQoL and were preferred over catheter reuse among people practicing IC. Catheter multiple-reuse may pose a potential safety concern due to colonization by microorganisms as well as having reduced acceptance compared to single use.Trial registry numberClinicalTrials.gov NCT02129738.
CONCLUSION: Percutaneous PD catheter insertion using a multifunctional bladder paracentesis trocar and ultrasound guidance is a feasible technique for ESRD patients. PMID: 32160357 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
