Immunochemical analysis of the impact of ischemic change in benign prostatic hyperplasia using immunohistochemistry

ConclusionIn patients with response to ischemic changes of the prostate, HIF-1α expression could be confirmed, and the expression of the androgen receptor was significantly lower in these patients. Chronic ischemic damage in the prostate can progress to a condition that is refractory to pharmacologic therapy. Chronic ischemic damage, which can progress to refractory phase to pharmacologic therapy, is correlated with the hormonal status of prostate.

HIGH blood pressure, also known as hypertension, can lead to serious health problems including heart attacks and strokes. Dubbed as a "silent killer" because of its rarely noticeable symptoms, the only way to find out for sure is to have your levels checked. But there's one sign found on your face which could be signalling the condition.

Health care costs in the U.S. have increased dramatically over the past five decades, from $74 billion in 1970 to $3.8 trillion in 2019. This trend has been fueled in large part by an increase in the number of people who struggle with chronic conditions such as cancer, diabetes, hypertension, and lung disease.

This study examines the effectiveness of a community-initiated health intervention to improve diabetes management in an underserved community of color using a retrospective observational study, comparing a study intervention, the Latino Health Access Diabetes Self-Management Program (LHA-DSMP), with usual care. The LHA-DSMP is a 12-session community health worker (promotor/a) intervention developed and implemented by a community-based organization in a medically underserved area. Usual care was delivered at a federally qualified health center in the same geographic area. Participants were 688 predominantly Spanish-speaking...

Objective: To determine the rate of acute compartment syndrome (ACS) in a series of patients with Gustilo–Anderson type IIIB open tibial shaft fractures that were treated using a specific 2-stage orthoplastic protocol. Design: Consecutive cohort study. Patients/Participants: Ninety-three (n = 93) consecutive patients with a type IIIB open tibial shaft fracture (OTA/AO-42) treated using a 2-stage orthoplastic approach, between August 2015 and January 2018. After exclusions, 83 (n = 83) were eligible for analysis. Intervention: Colloid resuscitation and 2-stage orthoplastic reconstruction of ty...

Abstract Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a common male sexual dysfunction associated with a reduced quality of life for patients and their partners. ED is associated with increasing age, depression, obesity, lack of exercise, diabetes mellitus, hypertension, dyslipidaemia, cardiovascular disease and lower urinary tract symptoms related to benign prostatic hyperplasia. The evaluation of men with ED requires a full medical and personally and culturally sensitive sexual history, a focused clinical examination, fasting glucose levels, a fasting lipid profile and, in select cases, a total testosterone level and a prostate...

BackgroundA high fat diet is associated with risk of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). However, whether hyperlipidemia is associated with BPH remains unclear. This population‐based cohort study elucidated whether hyperlipidemia is associated with an increased risk of BPH. MethodsWe used a new‐exposure design and analyzed data retrieved from the Taiwan National Health Insurance Database between January 1, 2000 and December 31, 2013. The cohort of men with newly diagnosed hyperlipidemia and the age‐ and index‐date‐matched (1:3) nonhyperlipidemia cohort were tracked for incidence of BPH during a 1‐ to 14‐year ...
