Comparison of estimations of urinary bladder volume in different scanning positions using 2D linear dimension formula and 3D bladder circumference tracing in client-owned cats
Can J Vet Res. 2024 Apr;88(2):55-65.ABSTRACTUrinary bladder volume (UBV) can be estimated using point-of-care ultrasound. The purpose of this study was to compare 2 UBV estimation methods, i.e., three-dimensional (3D) bladder circumference tracing and 2-dimensional (2D) linear bladder dimension formula, against actual bladder volumes in awake client-owned cats and identify the best scanning position for UBV estimations. Up to 3 paired sets of orthogonal longitudinal and transverse bladder ultrasound images were acquired by a trained clinician from 21 cats positioned in dorsal, right lateral, and left lateral recumbency. UB...

Comparison of outcomes in patients with and without neurologic diseases undergoing holmium laser enucleation of the prostate
CONCLUSIONS: Patients with ND undergoing HoLEP are more likely to experience postoperative retention and higher complication rates compared to non-ND patients. While UTI rates are higher in this population, HoLEP significantly reduced three-month UTI and catheterization rates.PMID:38587977 | DOI:10.5489/cuaj.8683 (Source: Canadian Urological Association Journal)

Surgical Outcomes and Predictive Factors in Patients With Detrusor Underactivity Undergoing Bladder Outlet Obstruction Surgery
CONCLUSION: In men with DU accompanied by equivocal or significant BOO, surgical intervention to alleviate the obstruction may enhance the IPSS, quality of life, and UFM results. However, those with DU and an unobstructed bladder outlet face a comparatively high risk of treatment failure. Preoperative detrusor overactivity and urinary catheterization are associated with more favorable surgical outcomes. Consequently, active deobstructive surgery should be considered for patients with DU who are experiencing urinary retention.PMID:38569621 | PMC:PMC10990765 | DOI:10.5213/inj.2346252.126 (Source: International Neurourology Journal)

Laparoscopic-Assisted Transvaginal Cholecystectomy - the US Military Experience With Long-Term Follow Up
CONCLUSION: TVC is safe and effective. Implementation may improve operational readiness by returning service members to normal activities more expeditiously than conventional laparoscopy.PMID:38562949 | PMC:PMC10984372 | DOI:10.4293/JSLS.2023.00059 (Source: JSLS : Journal of the Society of Laparoendoscopic Surgeons)
