Intraoperative floppy iris syndrome: an updated review of literature

In conclusion, awareness of the risk factors associated with IFIS, their detailed preoperative assessment and intraoperative measures and surgical intervention is crucial in addressing IFIS. Lack of awareness can turn a routine, uneventful surgery into one with significant visual morbidity.

Conclusion Lifestyle optimisation and management of metabolic risk factors may reduce the progression of BPH. Homoeopathic medicines are not only useful in effective management of BPH but also cost-effective, safe and non-surgical. However, randomised controlled trials and double-blind studies can be further taken up in future for more precise authentication. [...] Thieme Medical and Scientific Publishers Private Ltd.

A 65-year-old Caucasian man presented with a 24-year history of perineal leakage, bleeding, and mobility limitations associated with enlarging anogenital mass. He delayed addressing this issue due to myocardial infarction and cardiac stenting requiring long-term anticoagulation. Other past medical history included diabetes mellitus, chronic kidney disease, obstructive sleep apnea, hypertension, and benign prostatic hyperplasia. He never pursued a biopsy or culture of the area.

AbstractPurpose of ReviewThe epidemiology of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) is continuously evolving with an increasing life span and the prevalence of metabolic diseases, including obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and hypertension. As a result, there is a substantial financial strain on health care.Recent FindingsRecent studies and clinical trials have strengthened the relationship of known risk factors of BPH and LUTS. These include metabolic syndrome, diabetes, obesity, hypertension, and elevated serum dihydrotestosterone. Excessive consumption of red meat, saturated...

AbstractGlaucoma is a leading cause of bilateral blindness. Phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitors (PDE5Is; e.g. avanafil, sildenafil, tadalafil and vardenafil) may increase blood flow to the ciliary body, thereby elevating intraocular pressure and increasing the risk of glaucoma. PDE5Is are commonly used to treat erectile dysfunction, as well as benign prostatic hyperplasia (tadalafil) and pulmonary hypertension (sildenafil). Patients receiving PDE5Is require glaucoma education and ongoing screening, especially if they are taking a high dosage of a daily PDE5I or have risk factors for glaucoma (e.g. increased age, African-Am...

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.

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...

ConclusionsPatients with benign prostatic hyperplasia exhibited an increased risk of developing vertebral compression fractures in both the thoracic and lumbar spine and also hip fractures, but did not increase the risk of wrist fracture. However, more research is needed to confirm this trend in the clinical setting.
