Do Effects on Bowel Patterns Imposed by Solifenacin Always Have Negative Impacts on Treating Patients with Overactive Bladder (OAB)?
ConclusionsThis study shows that solifenacin treatment is effective for treating urinary incontinence but may lead to changes in bowel patterns and affects overall quality of life (QoL). Effects on bowel patterns imposed by solifenacin can be positive or negative, therefore, physicians should consider more holistic therapy by addressing overall bowel symptoms when treating OAB patients.

ConclusionIn clinical routine severe complications occurred in 1%. The latter were unrelated to pectopexy, but occurred due to concomitant procedures or adhesions. The overall operating time as well as the operating time for pectopexy were similar to those reported in published studies on sacrocolpopexy.
CONCLUSIONS: Considering the age group in which rectal prolapse is most commonly seen, and the change in bowel habits, chronic constipation and irritation chronic seen in rectal prolapse may be responsible for the development of rectum cancer, therefore endoscopic screening should not be overlooked in rectal prolapse cases.

In this paper, we employ adhesive tapes with indicator-functionalized microarrays for rapid urinalysis. Such tape-based sensor combines advantages of flexibility, adhesive and waterproof functionality in a platform, which is simply prepared by physical punching, fabrics filling and indicators modification. The simulated urine flow can be captured and pen...

Authors: Niewinna K, Zielińska A, Fichna J Abstract Introduction: Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a complex functional gut disorder that typically manifests in early adult years. More than a third of IBS patients are diagnosed with predominant constipation subtype (IBS-C). This syndrome has a distressing impact on the quality of life and is challenging both for patients and physicians.Areas covered: This review focuses on the pathophysiology of constipation in IBS and presents current management options. It also covers the latest findings that may lead to novel pharmacological options in IBS-C management. The au...
In conclusion, limited evidence shows that routine urodynamics prior to non-surgical management of UI or surgical management of SUI is not associated with improved treatment outcomes, when compared to clinical evaluation only. Well-designed clinical trials are needed to evaluate the clinical and cost-effectiveness of routine urodynamics prior to surgical management of SUI and OAB.
ConclusionBoth neurologic and medical complications were common in majority of stroke patients. But the management protocol for stroke patients was sub-optimal and lagging behind the recommended guidelines due to lack of skilled personnel, appropriate treatment and diagnostic agents. The clinical team involved in the care of stroke patients should make preparations to take preventive measures that will save a lot of lives.
CONCLUSIONS: In this cohort of women with vulvar diseases, vitamin D levels and supplementation were not significantly different amongst women with vulvar lichen sclerosus or other non-lichenoid vulvar diseases. Furthermore, vitamin D levels are not serum biomarkers for OAB, urinary incontinence, constipation, or IBS. PMID: 30747611 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
