BACKGROUND Current medications used in the treatment of interstitial cystitis (IC) have limited efficacy. This prospective study investigated the efficacy of multiple intravesical instillations of resiniferatoxin (RTX) at the concentration of 10 nM. METHODS Patients with proven IC previously treated with traditional medications for more than 6 months(More)
OBJECTIVE The etiology and pathogenesis of interstitial cystitis/bladder pain syndrome (IC/BPS) are unclear. Chronic inflammation is considered the main pathology of IC/BPS. This study measured the serum c-reactive protein (CRP), nerve growth factor (NGF) and pro-inflammatory cytokine/chemokine interleukin (IL)-1β, IL-6, tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-α, and(More)
OBJECTIVES To report our preliminary experience with transurethral incision of the bladder neck in the treatment of female voiding dysfunction due to bladder neck obstruction. Bladder neck obstruction in women is an infrequently diagnosed urologic condition. METHODS Bladder neck obstruction was diagnosed in 11 women 41 to 80 years of age, who presented(More)
OBJECTIVE To measure the expression of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) in bladder tissue and improvement of clinical symptoms and inflammatory biomarkers after repeated onabotulinumtoxinA injections in patients with interstitial cystitis/bladder pain syndrome (IC/BPS). METHODS Twenty-one patients with IC/BPS received 4 sets of intravesical 100-U(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate the voiding function, ejaculation status and sexual function after the novel modification of transurethral incision of the bladder neck (TIBN) treating young men with primary bladder neck obstruction (PBNO). METHODS Using a videourodynamic study, PBNO was diagnosed in 33 young men 27-50 years of age who presented with chronic lower(More)
AIMS Voiding dysfunction due to dysfunctional voiding (DV) and poor relaxation of the external sphincter (PRES) are commonly found among adult women with lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) during videourodynamic study (VUDS). This study analyzed the VUDS characteristics of DV and PRES in female voiding dysfunction. METHODS This retrospective study(More)
