AIMS The Nocturnal Bladder Capacity Index (NBCi) has been reported to be useful in distinguishing between nocturia caused by low bladder capacity and nocturnal polyuria. This paper aims to calculate reference values for NBCi from an asymptomatic population by comparing these with NBCi values from patients with lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) to obtain(More)
To determine and quantify the cause of nocturia in men, we describe and evaluate the relative contribution of two complementary indices of nocturia: the nocturia index (Ni), a measure of nocturnal urine overproduction, and the nocturnal bladder capacity index (NBCi), reflective of nocturnal bladder capacity. The records of 100 consecutive men with lower(More)
In a case-control study with prevalence sampling, the authors explored the correlates for nocturia and their population-level impact. In 2003-2004, questionnaires were mailed to 6,000 subjects (aged 18-79 years) randomly identified from the Finnish Population Register (62.4% participated; 53.7% were female). Questionnaires contained items on medical(More)
The following is a report of the proceedings of the Nocturia Think Tank sessions of the annual International Consultation on Incontinence-Research Society, which took place June 13-15, 2011 in Bristol, UK. The report is organized into sections pertaining to the main topics of discussions having occurred at that meeting, centering on the relationship of(More)
AIMS The primary objective was to investigate the efficacy of desmopressin orally disintegrating tablet versus placebo in patients with nocturia. Pharmacodynamics, safety and patient-reported quality of life (QoL) outcomes were also evaluated. One of several benefits of the new formulation is increased bioavailability. Exploring lower doses allows for a(More)
Nocturia is one of the most bothersome of all urologic symptoms, yet even a rudimentary classification does not exist. We herein propose a classification system of nocturia based on a retrospective study. The records of 200 consecutive patients with nocturia were reviewed. Evaluation included history, micturition diary (including day, night, and 24-hr(More)
The Nocturia Think Tank (TT) met during the 2010 meeting of the International Consultation on Incontinence-Research Society to discuss present knowledge and future directions in care and research of this prominent component of the spectrum of lower urinary tract symptoms. Questions raised included whether nocturia should be re-defined as a function of its(More)
PURPOSE To study the long-term outcomes and tolerance in our patients who received dose escalated radiotherapy in the early salvage post-prostatectomy setting. MATERIALS AND METHODS The medical records of 54 consecutive patients who underwent radical prostatectomy subsequently followed by salvage radiation therapy (SRT) to the prostate bed between(More)
PURPOSE To utilize the surveillance, epidemiology, and end results database to analyze whether there are racial or socioeconomic disparities associated with the selection of prostate brachytherapy. MATERIAL AND METHODS We selected patients who were diagnosed with localized prostate cancer between 2004-2006 and who underwent treatment with radiation. Data(More)
PURPOSE We determined the differential diagnosis of concomitant pathological conditions in men with overactive bladder symptoms. MATERIALS AND METHODS We performed an observational, descriptive study to elucidate the differential diagnosis in men with overactive bladder symptoms using a previously validated overactive bladder symptom questionnaire.
