The potential for significant postoperative morbidity and mortality after radical cystectomy should not be underestimated and underscores the need for appropriate patient selection, attention to surgical and perioperative detail, and a multidisciplinary approach to patient care. The same research group presented an animal study looking at the effects of repeat weekly administration of intracavernosal Maxi-K in the rat model. Most commonly, the difference involved the determination of whether muscle invasion had been established, requiring repeat TUR to establish the proper staging. All patients had intraoperative frozen section analysis of the urethral and the distal ureters with negative margins. These specimens were then pathologically evaluated. Tissue samples were then obtained and analyzed for intraprostatic DHT concentration.

IC, interstitial cystitis; NS, nonsignificant.

All of these observations together suggest that health care providers engaging in 5700 counseling and treatment of men with LUTS and BPH should take more frequent advantage of this tool in their practice. Men with more severe LUTS symptomatology experienced worse ejaculatory function compared with those with mild or moderate symptoms. Quality of life scores and BPH impact indices were equally improved. In brief, the investigators found that aging seems to be associated with a decreased response to intravesical immunotherapy, and auaa finding is particularly apparent in patients older than 80 years.

They reported on their results of vasectomy reversals and came to the conclusion that in 750 men with sperm parts present at the site of the vasectomy the success of the surgery was much lower than anticipated.

Based in Livonia, Mich. Nickel and colleagues 34 examined the interrelationships of IC symptoms and associated bother, employment, and sexual function on quality of life in a sample of women with moderate to severe IC of long duration enrolled in an NIH treatment trial. Aau, the long-term safety of androgens, particularly their effect on the prostate gland, continues to be a controversial subject.


In a study by Van Gils and associates, PCA3 gene expression was evaluated in men undergoing radical prostatectomy. The latter were also seen in the loops of Henle.

SLx is converted in the liver to an active metabolite, SLx On the key measures of ability to penetrate and successful completion of intercourse questions 2 and 3 of the Sexual Encounter Profileavanafil exhibited a dose-dependent response that was statistically significant compared with placebo. The investigators first showed that there is a significant increase in collagen production from smooth muscle cells from human neurogenic bladders myelomeningocele patients when compared with smooth muscle cells from healthy human bladders.

The mean number of years from the onset of abuse to the diagnosis of IC was 24 years. Although improper use of the ureteroscope by the operating surgeon might play a role in its rather short life span, other factors are involved.

The AUA is the largest urological association in the world, with more than 22, member urologists and urologic professionals from the United States and other countries.

BTX-A injection has been popular in cosmetic surgery and in several other areas of medicine eg, the injection of vocal cords for spastic dysphonia.

This work adds further to the experimental evidence that BTX-A might treat detrusor overactivity, at least in part, by blocking the release of sensory neurotransmitters from afferent neurons.

These data provide a reasonable rationale to treat patients with surgically resectable small-cell tumors of the bladder with 4 cycles of neoadjuvant therapy before surgery. There is no question that some aging-related effects in men are androgen dependent, and logic would dictate that androgen replacement therapy should help in such situations. Another less well understood aspect of TUMT treatment is the rate of retreatment and factors that might predict the need for retreatment over time.


A series of 3 papers dealt with quality of life issues in adults with congenital urologic anomalies. This suggests a near complete resection of the transition zone, and independent of the actual volume removed, the surgical capsule left behind produces a relatively homogeneous amount of PSA.

Most commonly, the difference involved the determination of whether muscle invasion had been established, requiring repeat TUR to establish the proper staging.

Carefully performed, prospective studies are needed to address this question. This finding also suggested an increasing importance for inflammation in the progression of BPH and opens the opportunity to study such molecules as potential diagnostic markers and later as therapeutic targets. Over the 2-year period, alfuzosin induced a symptom improvement of 5.

Mueller and colleagues 7 evaluated a large database of men who had enrolled in a post-radical prostatectomy RP rehabilitation program. For more information, visit www. At 28 days, only the high-dose 3.

More than three quarters of these patients presented symptomatically with gross hematuria, flank pain, or pyelonephritis. Indeed, in addition to other studies, reports from non-controlled studies have emphasized the improvement in LUTS symptoms in men treated with sildenafil citrate for BPH.

During the follow-up period, an additional 34 patients underwent cystectomy. Patients on CIC had greater continence rates when compared 75500 those not on catheterization. Both patients had a history of smoking.
