A novel technique for complete laparoscopic excision of a transobturator sling with lower urinary tract mesh erosion

ConclusionCombined approaches for complete excision of transobturator slings, including bilateral inguinal dissection, are relatively morbid with prolonged recovery time and in most centres will require involvement of plastic surgeons. The laparoscopic approach not only allows for the mesh to be removed in total (including the intramural portion of the mesh), but also provides magnified views compared with open surgery and thus allows for better identification of planes and dissection. It also has the added benefit of avoiding vaginal incisions and therefore reducing the risk of fistula formation between the urethra/bladder and vagina.

Conclusion Our initial experience with curing of UTI with homoeopathy according to repertory of the urinary organs and prostate gland including condylomata compiled by A.R. Morgan as add on to standard urologic care was encouraging. For an evidence-based evaluation of this concept, prospective studies are required.

Prostate cancer therapies are improving over time. But how do the long-term side effects from the various options available today compare? Results from a newly published study are providing some valuable insights. Investigators at Vanderbilt University and the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center spent five years tracking the sexual, bowel, urinary, and hormonal status of nearly 2,000 men after they had been treated for prostate cancer, or monitored with active surveillance (which entails checking the tumor periodically and treating it only if it begins to grow). Cancers in all the men were still confined to the p...

AbstractUrinary tract infection (UTI) is defined as the growth of a significant number of microorganisms of a single species in the urine, in the presence of symptoms. Symptoms in young children are non-specific such as fever without focus; young infants may manifest with irritability, failure to thrive, jaundice, vomiting and diarrhea. Older children usually have symptoms of cystitis or pyelonephritis. Symptoms of cystitis are dysuria, frequency, new onset incontinence and malodorous urine while symptoms of pyelonephritis are high grade fever, flank pain and vomiting. Rapid urine testing by microscopy for pus cells, dipst...

AbstractPurposeTo report multidimensional outcomes encompassing pain, dyspareunia, and recurrent urinary tract infections (UTIs), following suburethral sling removal (SSR) of synthetic midurethral slings (MUS) placed for female stress urinary incontinence.MethodsWe reviewed a prospectively maintained, IRB-approved database of women undergoing SSR at our institution. Demographic data, type of sling, and symptoms along with Urogenital Distress Inventory-Short Form (UDI-6) scores both before and after SSR were analyzed. Success was defined using several modalities including patient-reported symptoms (ideal outcome) and UDI-6 ...

​Prepubertal boys who present to the emergency department with dysuria are uncommon. The adult with burning on urination is assumed to have a sexually transmitted disease, but of course that diagnosis should not be high on your list for boys.In fact, infectious urethritis in children is quite uncommon unless there is premature sexual activity or sexual abuse by an adult. Unfortunately, a variety of noninfectious urethral pathologies may mimic infectious urethritis in children. A urinary tract infection in a prepubertal boy is an infectious cause of dysuria. Those infections, however, rarely present with the isolated symp...

This study also found that Proteus DNA, a genus with many uropathogenic species (Drzewiecka, 2016), was more prevalent in women with OAB compared to asymptomatic controls (Curtiss et al., 2017). IC A recent study by Abernethy et al. suggested that the microbiome may play a role in IC (Abernethy et al., 2017). In this study, 16S rRNA analysis determined the microbiome of catheterized urine from women (n = 40) with IC was not dominated by a single genus and was less likely to contain Lactobacillus compared to asymptomatic women. Abernethy et al. also showed that L. acidophilus was associated with less severe scores on the ...

Conclusions Patients undergoing concurrent hemorrhoidectomy at the time of vaginal urogynecologic surgery are at higher risk of minor events such as postoperative urinary tract infection and need for discharge home with a Foley, as well as risk of pain that may be greater than urogynecologic surgery alone.

Abstract In specialist urology clinics, 50 - 70 % of patients have chronic urological diseases such as recurrent urinary tract infections, a somatoform overactive bladder, adult and infantile enuresis, a chronic pelvic pain syndrome, and the psychosomatic form of post-prostatectomy incontinence. The 12-month prevalence of psychological disorders in the general adult population is 28 % 1. As many as 20 % of children and adolescents are found to have psychological abnormalities 2. These are frequently accompanied by somatoform symptoms, often consisting of a psychosomatic voiding disorder with a consecutiv...
