Efficacy of mirabegron for overactive bladder with human T cell lymphotropic virus ‐1 associated myelopathy
ObjectiveMirabegron is widely considered as an effective and safe drug for patients with overactive bladder (OAB). However, there is no evidence regarding the efficacy of mirabegron in human T cell lymphotropic virus‐1 (HTLV‐1)‐associated myelopathy/tropical spastic paraparesis (HAM/TSP) patients with OAB symptoms. The aim of the present study was to clarify the efficacy of mirabegron in HAM/TSP patients with OAB symptoms. MethodsThe present study evaluated the efficacy of mirabegron treatment (50 mg, once daily) in nineteen HAM/TSP patients with OAB symptoms by assessing subjective symptoms using the overacti...

Advances in intravesical therapy for bladder pain syndrome (BPS)/interstitial cystitis (IC)
Bladder pain syndrome (BPS)/interstitial cystitis (IC) is a chronic symptom complex that may cause bothersome storage symptoms and pain or discomfort of the bladder, adversely affecting a patient's quality of life. The etiology of IC/BPS remains unclear, and its cause may be multifactorial. Diagnosis of IC/BPS is based on clinical features, and the possibility of other conditions must be ruled out first. Although no definitive treatment is currently available for IC/BPS, various intravesical therapies are used for IC/BPS, including heparin, hyaluronic acid, chondroitin sulfate, pentosan polysulfate, dimethylsulfoxide, lipo...

Vascular fibrinoid necrosis in the urinary bladder of ketamine abusers: A new finding that may provide a clue to the pathogenesis of ketamine ‐induced vesicopathy
Two 31‐year‐old women who had abused ketamine, 1 for 8 years and 1 for 5 years, presented with ketamine‐induced vesicopathy with urinary frequency, decreased bladder capacity, and detrusor overactivity. An enterocystoplasty was performed in both cases. The pathology of the urinary bladders in both women showed ulcerative cystitis and fibrinoid necrosis of vessels; the latter was confirmed by Masson trichrome staining. Fibrinoid necrosis of vessels is a kind of immune complex‐mediated vasculitis that induces the release of inflammatory mediators, with subsequent thrombosis, ischemic injury, and eventual tissue necro...

Severe prostate enlargement with severe lower urinary tract symptoms in poorly controlled acromegaly successfully treated with 5 α‐reductase inhibitors: A 15‐year longitudinal case report
Acromegaly is a rare disease associated with an increased risk of prostate enlargement. Severe prostate enlargement with severe lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) in an acromegalic patient is even more uncommon. Herein we report on a 55‐year‐old man who was diagnosed with acromegaly and prostate enlargement at 40 years of age. Transsphenoidal surgery, postoperative radiotherapy, and octreotide medical therapy failed to control the acromegaly, and growth hormone (GH) and insulin‐like growth factor 1 (IGF‐1) levels remained elevated. When the patient was 53 years of age, severe LUTS and prostate enlarg...

Prevalence of post ‐micturition dribble in Japanese men and its relationship with benign prostatic hyperplasia/lower urinary tract symptoms
ObjectivePost‐micturition dribble (PMD) is one of the post‐micturition lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS). Although there have been many studies of LUTS in Japanese men, PMD is not completely understood in the Japanese population. In the present study, we investigated the prevalence and bother of PMD in Japanese men. MethodsFrom 2007 to 2008, a cross‐sectional community‐based study on LUTS was conducted in Japanese men aged 40–79 years in Shimamaki‐mura, Hokkaido, Japan. The prevalence and bother of PMD were investigated using a validated questionnaire, and prostate volume (PV) and the peak flow rat...

ObjectiveUsing modified sonourethrography (mSUG) with retrograde jelly injection to precisely measure the morphological characteristics of the prostatic urethra, we assessed prostatic urethral morphology associated with clinical parameters of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). MethodsBPH patients (n = 43) and control patients with localized prostate cancer (PC; n = 57) were imaged by mSUG before surgery. Using the seminal colliculus as a landmark, prostatic urethral angulation (PUA), sagittal urethral diameter, and anterior or posterior prostatic urethral length were measured. The International...

ObjectiveThe aim of the present study was to investigate the use of random copeptin concentrations as possible biomarkers for the differential diagnosis of nocturnal polyuria (NP). MethodsIn all, 111 patients with and without nocturia were enrolled in the study. Patients with a neurogenic bladder and/or those who had undergone bladder or urethral surgery were excluded from the study. All patients completed a 72‐hour frequency–volume chart and a renal function profile. A random blood sample was obtained during the day for measurement of plasma copeptin concentrations, osmolality, and serum sodium and creatinine conc...
