Predictive factors that could possibly affect the cure and complication rates of tension-free vaginal tape (TVT) in the treatment of stress urinary incontinence (SUI) were investigated. Seventy-five consecutive patients with urodynamically proven SUI and who had undergone a TVT operation were evaluated according to a follow-up protocol. Median age was 51.2(More)
The purpose of this study was to assess the prevalence of female urinary incontinence (UI) and risk factors of bothersomeness and help-seeking behavior of hidden female UI in urology and obstetrics and gynecology outpatient clinics. This multicentric and cross-sectional study was conducted as a part of the Turkish Overactive Bladder Study. Female patients(More)
PURPOSE OF REVIEW Tension-free vaginal tape (TVT)-type procedures are gradually becoming the new gold-standard treatment for female stress urinary incontinence. Studies trying to determine the influence of possible risk factors on complications of TVT surgery are needed in order to achieve more favorable results in the future. This review attempts to(More)
BACKGROUND We aimed to determine the long-term results of Burch colposuspension. METHODS Patients who had undergone Burch colposuspension due to stress urinary incontinence (SUI) in our department between 1991 and 1995 were asked to participate in the study by telephone or mail. Fifty of 78 patients (64%) responded and these formed the study group.(More)
PURPOSE Central nervous system (CNS) and cardiovascular system (CVS) side effects of anticholinergic agents used to treat overactive bladder (OAB) are underreported. Hence, this review aimed to focus on the mechanisms of CNS and CVS side effects of anticholinergic drugs used in OAB treatment, which may help urologists in planning the rationale for OAB(More)
OBJECTIVES To establish the urologic status of men with Behcet's syndrome, because studies assessing the urologic aspect of Behçet's syndrome are rare. METHODS During a 2.5-year period, we evaluated 104 male patients with Behçet's syndrome, 16 to 50 years old (mean 31+/-7), using a urologic questionnaire and modified Boyarsky symptom score; 44 healthy(More)
AIMS Since lower urinary tract dysfunction (LUTD) related to multiple sclerosis (MS) has a different behavior pattern than other types of neurogenic voiding dysfunction, we aimed to prepare a national consensus report for the management of LUTD due to multiple sclerosis in light of available literature. METHODS A search of available databases yielded an(More)
OBJECTIVES To determine whether bladder histopathologic changes, detrusor leak point pressure (DLPP), disease duration, and preoperative catheterization time can predict for upper urinary tract (UUT) deterioration in patients with overactive neurogenic bladder dysfunction (ONBD). METHODS A total of 39 patients (7 women and 32 men) with ONBD who were(More)
We describe the application of a retubularized ileal stoma (Monti procedure) to an ileocecal pouch in a patient with a spinal cord injury who required a continent urinary diversion. When constructing a continent diversion with an ileocecal pouch, this technique seems a good choice, with significant advantages over the other alternatives.
PURPOSE To assess the outcome of urologic evaluation in patients with voiding dysfunction due to multiple sclerosis (MS) and to determine the relationship between urological and neurological parameters of these patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS We retrospectively reviewed the medical records of 249 consecutive patients (162 female and 87 male) with MS who(More)
