Dysfunctional voiding and incontinence scoring system: quantitative evaluation of incontinence symptoms in pediatric population.
TLDR
This statistically validated functional voiding problems symptom score may provide accurate, objective and scientific bases to grade the symptoms in comparative research, diagnosis, treatment and followup of patients with wetting andfunctional voiding disorders. Expand
Mutations in HPSE2 cause urofacial syndrome.
TLDR
It is shown that HPSE2 is expressed in the fetal and adult central nervous system, where it might be implicated in controlling facial expression and urinary voiding, and also in bladder smooth muscle, consistent with a role in renal tract morphology and function. Expand
Effectiveness of doxazosin in treatment of distal ureteral stones in children.
TLDR
Administration of 0.03 mg/kg doxazosin daily in children to treat distal ureteral stones up to 10 mm is not superior to analgesic alone, and this result is not affected by gender, stone size or patient age. Expand
Tadalafil rehabilitation therapy preserves penile size after bilateral nerve sparing radical retropubic prostatectomy.
TLDR
Although further large sampled trials are needed to describe the possible positive effect of tadalafil or other PDE5-I 's on penile size after BNSRRP, tadalAFil rehabilitation is effective in preserving penilesize especially in the early postoperative period after B NSRRP. Expand
A prospective, randomized comparative study of monopolar transurethral resection of the prostate versus photoselective vaporization of the prostate with GreenLight 120-W laser, in prostates less than
TLDR
Prostate PVP and TURP are effective surgical treatments for benign prostatic hyperplasia and the two techniques have a similar complication rate. Expand
Circumcision: Pros and cons
TLDR
A review of the embryology of the preputium, epidemiology, indications, complications and benefits of circumcision, as well as operation and anesthesiology techniques examines the association between UTI and circumcision and the importance of circumcision in congenital urinary system anomalies. Expand
Diagnosing Testicular Torsion before Urological Consultation and Imaging: Validation of the TWIST Score.
TLDR
In the future emergency medical technicians and/or emergency room triage personnel may be able to calculate TWIST score to guide radiological evaluation and immediate surgical intervention at initial assessment long before urological consultation. Expand
LRIG2 mutations cause urofacial syndrome.
TLDR
A subset of UFS-affected individuals have biallelic mutations in LRIG2, encoding leucine-rich repeats and immunoglobulin-like domains 2, a protein implicated in neural cell signaling and tumorigenesis, and it is demonstrated that rare variants inLRIG2 might be relevant to nonsyndromic bladder disease. Expand
Long-term outcome of vaginal reconstruction: comparing techniques and timing.
TLDR
If vagina reconstruction is the only indicated operation, delaying until puberty may minimize complications and when other genital surgery is indicated or in the presence of symptoms pre-pubertal vaginoplasty should be performed, since the second procedure usually involves simple dilatations and is associated with good results. Expand
Near infrared spectroscopy to diagnose experimental testicular torsion: comparison with Doppler ultrasound and immunohistochemical correlation of tissue oxygenation and viability.
TLDR
Near infrared spectroscopy is as effective but quicker than Doppler ultrasound for detecting testicular torsion without a radiologist. Expand
