A total of 104 evaluable patients 20-90 years old treated by direct vision internal urethrotomy a.m. Sachse for urethral strictures reported retrospectively via a questionnaire their sexual potency before and after internal urethrotomy. Eleven patients (10.6%) experienced partial or total erectile dysfunction following the operation, most of whom had distal(More)
The literature on uroflowmetry in women is presented and evaluated. Uroflowmeters are described and found generally sufficiently accurate, although the errors arising from electronic evaluation may invalidate the test. Six flow curve patterns are proposed in accordance with described pathological conditions. From the literature it is summarized that the(More)
A probe for measurement of related values of cross-sectional area (CA) and pressure in a biological tube has been developed to study passive and active closure forces in the female urethra. CA is measured in the range 0·13–1·00 cm2 by the field gradient technique. The system is able to produce an arbitrarily chosen CA in the urethra in about 50 ms. Pressure(More)
This prospective, randomized study based on two associated trials was designed to evaluate the effect of neoadjuvant chemotherapy with cisplatin and methotrexate with folinic acid rescue or no chemotherapy prior to local treatment in patients with T2-T4b, NX-3, MO transitional cell carcinoma of the bladder. In the first trial, local treatment consisted of(More)
A new probe was used to examine 16 female volunteers. The probe makes possible recording of related values of induced increasing and decreasing urethral pressures, and cross-sectional area in the resting female urethra. From diagrams showing these relationships urethral rigidity, defined as the change in urethral pressure divided by the change in(More)
The urethral and bladder pressure increments registered during a cough were investigated in 30 woman with genuine stress incontinence (GSI) and compared with those from 30 previously investigated healthy women. The pressures were measured by means of a double microtip transducer catheter with the bladder sensor uncovered and the urethral sensor covered with(More)
A probe which permits continuous measurement of the related values of pressure and cross-sectional area in the female urethra was used to provide a quantitative description of the adjunctive occlusive forces in terms of pressure and power (mWatt) generation. Measurements were carried out at the bladder neck, midurethrally and distally in the urethra in 30(More)
Pressure variations in the urethra and bladder during stress episodes and their time separations were investigated in 30 healthy female volunteers. The pressure was measured by means of a double microtip transducer catheter with the distal sensor in the bladder and the proximal sensor at the bladder neck, the mid-urethra and the distal urethra. In advance(More)
A probe for measurement of related values of cross sectional area (c.a.) and pressure in the resting female urethra has been developed. C.a. can be measured in the range 0.07 to 0.79 cm2 by means of the field gradient principle. Pressure is measured in the range 0 to 150 cm H2O. Pressure needed for inflation and deflation of the balloon ranges from +4 to-5(More)
Urethral sphincter electromyography recording via vaginal surface electrodes was compared to simultaneous sphincter electromyographic registrations obtained with a periurethral coaxial needle electrode and perianal surface or needle electrodes in 10 neurologically intact women. Qualitative similarity of the vaginal surface and periurethral needle electrode(More)
