Diagnostic procedures and diagnostic strategy for lower urinary tract symptoms/benign prostatic hyperplasia : An overview.

CONCLUSIONS: Diagnostics of LUTS/BPH consist of basic exams as well as optional exams and can be used to assess the progression risk, to identify complications and to offer the ideal treatment. PMID: 30796463 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

The digestion profiles showed that UT increased the slowly digestible starch (SDS) or resistant starch (RS) of RS3 as an effective green process, corresponding to a change in hydrolysis kinetic parameters (equilibrium starch hydrolysis percentage and kinetic constant). SEM analysis showed that ultrasound led to breakage of RS3 parti...

Authors: Kim WT, Yun SJ, Kim WJ Abstract Prostate cancer (CaP) is the most common cancer diagnosed among men in the United States and the fifth most common cancer among men in Korea. Unfortunately, the early stages of CaP may have no symptoms. Thus, early detection is very important and physicians managing voiding dysfunction must have awareness about CaP. The traditional tests used for early detection of CaP are the prostate-specific antigen (PSA) blood test and digital rectal examination. However, a high PSA level is not specific for CaP. Benign prostatic hyperplasia, prostatitis, urinary tract infection, and uri...

Objective:To investigate the relationship between the severity of histopathological prostatic inflammation with lower urinary tract symptoms and prostate specific antigen (PSA) levels.Methods:We prospectively included 222 consecutive patients eligible for transurethral resection of the prostate in a non-academic referral center by a single surgeon. Patients with proven urinary tract infection or prostate cancer were excluded. Preoperative assessment included PSA levels, International Prostate Symptom Score (IPSS), mean peak flow, mean resected prostate weight and post-residual volume. Finally, the presence and severity of ...

We report a case of synchronous bladder transitional cell carcinoma (TCC) and prostatic carcinoma with CLL. A 74-year-old male who underwent transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) for benign prostatic hyperplasia 2 years before, presented with recurrent urinary tract infection. Peripheral blood smear revealed leukocytosis with absolute lymphocytosis (absolute lymphocyte count: 37870 cells/mm³). Flow cytometric immunophenotyping revealed 75% abnormal lymphoid cells which were positive for CD 19, CD5, CD23, CD22, CD200, CD20 (moderate) with lambda light chain restriction and negative for CD3, CD10, FMC7, CD38, C...

The developmental mechanism of prostatitis is not yet unraveled which led to the elaboration of various biomarkers. As changes in asparagine-linked-(N-)-glycosylation were observed between healthy volunteers (HV), patients with benign prostate hyperplasia and prostate cancer patients, a difference could exist in biochemical parameters and urinary N-glycosylation betwee...
