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...

Morphological and clinical evaluation of prostatic urethra using modified sonourethrography with retrograde jelly injection
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...

Female urinary incontinence and obesity assessed by anthropometry and dual ‐energy X‐ray absorptiometry: Analysis from the 2008–09 Korean National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey
ConclusionObesity parameters obtained using DEXA are closely related to UI. Of these parameters, the trunk fat/leg fat ratio is the strongest in predicting the presence of UI. In addition, the present study has found a novel trunk fat/leg fat ratio cut‐off value for defining obesity related to the UI. (Source: LUTS: Lower Urinary Tract Symptoms)

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.

Lower urinary tract dysfunction in pediatric patients after ureteroneocystostomy due to vesicoureteral reflux: Long ‐term follow‐up
ConclusionsLUTD may not resolve after a ureteroneocystostomy, and additional therapy could be necessary. Due to the probability of damage to the ureterovesical nerve and/or disturbed bladder dynamics, de novo LUTD may occur in patients with bilateral high‐grade reflux without LUTD before a ureteroneocystostomy.

Effects of varying degrees of partial bladder outlet obstruction on urinary bladder function of rats: A novel link to inflammation, oxidative stress and hypoxia
ConclusionThe results of the present study reveal the importance of oxidative stress‐induced NF‐κB signaling in bladder dysfunction with severe obstruction. Altered HIF signaling may contribute to the functional impairment after PBOO. Novel and evolving therapies targeting oxidative and/or inflammatory pathways may be a reasonable strategy for the management of lower urinary tract symptoms or benign prostatic hyperplasia.

Management of urethral stricture: High ‐pressure balloon dilation versus optical internal urethrotomy
ObjectiveUrethral stenosis is a disease in which the lumen of the urethra becomes constricted by fibrosis. Such stenoses have been treated by urethral dilation using a bougie and optical internal urethrotomy (OIU). Recently, high‐pressure balloon dilation (BD) has been developed as a new treatment method for urethral stenosis. The present study compared the effectiveness of urethral dilation by BD and OIU. MethodsTwenty‐two patients of urethral stenosis were treated at Yokohama City University Medical Center between 2005 and 2015. Of these, 13 underwent BD, whereas OIU was performed in 9. BD was performed at 30 ...

Possible role of hyposensitivity of C ‐fiber afferents at the proximal urethra in the development of urge urinary incontinence in patients with detrusor overactivity
ObjectiveThe aim of the present study was to investigate associations between urethral sensation and urge urinary incontinence (UUI) in patients with and without detrusor overactivity (DO). MethodsThe medical records of 80 consecutive patients who underwent filling cystometry and urethral current perception threshold (CPT) tests were examined retrospectively. Following the exclusion of 4 patients not eligible for analysis, patients were classified into neurogenic DO, idiopathic DO, or DO‐negative groups based on neurological and cystometric findings (n = 30, 12, and 34, respectively). Eleven DO‐negative p...

This study assessed the effectiveness and safety of a medical device containing purified bovine colostrum (Monurelle Biogel; Zambon, Bresso, Italy) in improving vulvovaginal atrophy (VVA), sexual function, urinary symptoms, and quality of life (QoL) in postmenopausal women. MethodsIn all, 172 postmenopausal women with VVA were included in the study. All women were treated with vaginal Monurelle Biogel daily for 12 weeks. Patients underwent clinical examinations, completed a 3‐day voiding diary, and had VVA graded using the Vaginal Health Index (VHI) at baseline and 12 weeks. Patients also completed the Fema...

Female bladder outlet obstruction: Common symptoms masking an uncommon cause
ConclusionsBOO was present in 19% of women with LUTS. Functional sphincteric obstruction was the most common cause (36%), followed by obstruction after anti‐incontinence surgery (21%). The most common presenting symptom was daytime urinary frequency. BOO should be suspected in women with refractory LUTS, especially those presenting with urinary frequency.
