Benign prostatic hyperplasia, or BPH, is the medical term for an enlarged prostate. BPH can cause difficulties with urination. Treatment options for BPH include watchful waiting, medication, minimally invasive procedures, and surgery. Lifestyle changes can also help improve a person’s symptoms. Learn more here.
Painful bladder symptoms related to somatic syndromes in a convenience sample of community women with overactive bladder symptoms
Herein we aim to investigate the relationship between painful bladder filling and urinary urgency with somatic and chronic pain symptoms in women with overactive bladder (OAB) without an interstitial cystitis/bladder pain syndrome (IC/BPS) diagnosis.
Accuracy of transperineal targeted prostate biopsies, both visual-estimation and image-fusion for men needing a repeat biopsy in the PICTURE trial
To evaluate detection of clinically significant prostate cancer (csPCa) using MRI-targeted biopsies, and compare visual-estimation to image-fusion targeting, in patients requiring repeat prostate biopsies.
Antibiotics are a common and effective treatment for urinary tract infections (UTIs), but they come with risks. Some UTIs can go away on their own, and several home remedies can speed up this process. In this article, we discuss the benefits and risks of antibiotics and provide seven home remedies to treat UTIs.
To discuss the presenting features, imaging findings and recommended management of patients with Metanephric adenoma (MA) focusing on the diagnostic challenges and indications for follow up.
Abdominal Radiography with Digital Tomosynthesis: an Alternative to Computed Tomography for Identification of Urinary Calculi?
To compare the accuracy of plain abdominal radiography (KUB) with digital tomosynthesis (DT) to non-contrast computed tomography (NCCT), the gold standard imaging modality for urinary stones. Due to radiation and cost concerns, KUB is often used for diagnosis and follow-up of nephrolithiasis. Digital tomosynthesis, a novel technique that produces high-quality radiographs with less radiation/cost than low-dose NCCT, has not been assessed in this situation.
Postmenopausal women are at higher risk for bone loss and kidney stones. Epidemiological studies examining the associations between menopause and incident kidney stones are controversial. This study, which took advantage of the NHS II, provides valuable information showing an increased risk of kidney stones with natural and postoperatively induced menopause. An advantage is the presentation of kidney stone risk profiles in 658 participants with kidney stones before vs after menopause. This was important to explain the underlying pathophysiological mechanism of the development of kidney stones in this population.
These authors present a comprehensive and yet concise systematic review on the inconsistencies of UTI definitions in intradetrusor onabotulinumtoxinA studies. They report that the UTI rate is often not reported and, when it is, the definition is highly variable. If the EAU and NIDRR definitions were applied, almost all studies would fail to meet the diagnostic criteria for UTI.
