ConclusionsMVT is a robust, non-invasive method for measuring the timing, volume, and location of voiding. It improves on an existing technique, the void spot assay, by adding timing information, and unlike the cystometrogram preparation, MVT does not require surgical catheterization. Combining MVT with current neuroscience techniques will improve our understanding of the neural circuits that control continence, which is important for addressing the growing number of patients with urinary incontinence as the population ages.
ConclusionsChinese women had inactive sexual intercourse during pregnancy. There is a slight association between increased sexual intercourse frequency and a thicker levator ani muscle in pregnant women. Future work may be directed at determining the causality of this association.
ConclusionsExo-anal tomographic imaging of sphincter defects at rest seems sufficiently valid for clinical use and may not be inferior to sphincter assessment on pelvic floor muscle contraction.
ConclusionRefinements to management plans in this study highlight the importance of MDT input in urogynaecology care and mirror the findings of two previous studies. Evidence for improved outcomes and the cost-effectiveness of MDTs is lacking and is an area for future research. Expanded national guidance for urogynaecology MDTs is likely to require local and regional restructuring of these in the UK.
ConclusionsPFDs are common in a community of parous, reproductive age women in rural Nepal. Risk factors for these conditions are similar to risk factors found in higher income countries.
CONCLUSIONS: The severity and duration of MS is a risk factor for rUTIs. Urodynamic risk factors are compatible with a lower contractile capacity in patients with rUTIs, while the existence of NLUTD would not imply any specific risk factor. PMID: 31797803 [PubMed - in process]
Authors: Fosså SD, Beyer B, Dahl AA, Aas K, Eri LM, Kvan E, Falk RS, Graefen M, Huland H, Berge V Abstract Purpose: To explore whether prostatectomized men report improved post-operative erectile function and urinary control dependent on the application of intra-operative frozen section examination (NeuroSAFE) during nerve-sparing radical prostatectomies (NS-RPs).Methods: Pre- and post-RP responses to the sexual domain and the urinary incontinence subscale of EPIC-26 were analyzed in 95 and 312 men from a NeuroSAFEGroup (Martini-Klinik, Hamburg, Germany) and a Non-NeuroSAFE Group (Oslo University Hospital, No...
In conclusion, the histopathological presence of Homer-Wright rosettes and immunohistochemical markers such as CD99, FLI-1 and CK are valuable factors for the diagnosis of ES, although cytogenetic analysis is considered the gold standard. Complete surgery is the most effective treatment option for ES treatment. Adjuvant radiotherapy and combination chemotherapy can also improve the survival rate of patients postoperatively.

AbstractBackgroundThe rehabilitation of post-prostatectomy urinary incontinence has traditionally focused on pelvic floor strengthening exercise. The goal of this study was to determine whether an individualized pelvic physical therapy (PT) program aimed at normalizing both underactive and overactive pelvic floor dysfunction (PFD) can result in improvement in post-prostatectomy stress urinary incontinence (SUI) and pelvic pain.MethodsA retrospective chart review of 136 patients with post-prostatectomy SUI and treated with pelvic PT. Patients were identified as having either underactive, overactive, or mixed-type PFD and tr...
ConclusionsHenry Van Roonhuyse is the most credible candidate presently known for having successfully repaired a vesico-vaginal fistula in the pre-modern era.
