Thirty patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) [18 men and 12 women, mean age 40 years (range 22-50), disease duration 12 years (range 0.5-34), Kurtzke's Expanded Disability Status Score 6.0 (range 4.0-7.5)] were interviewed about bowel symptoms and studied using ano-rectal manometry. The results were compared with findings in healthy controls. Twenty-eight(More)
OBJECTIVES A pooled analysis of all available randomized trials with 2-year follow-up data with finasteride and placebo was undertaken to further investigate recent observations that finasteride use may reduce the occurrence of acute urinary retention (AUR) and benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH)-related surgical intervention. METHODS Occurrences of AUR(More)
Over a 9-month period 228 men were admitted for acute urinary retention to six different casualty wards in the Copenhagen area. The patients were followed in the corresponding urological departments for one year. Twenty-seven variables were registered for each patient. The cumulative rate of recurrent retention was 56% after one week and 68% after one year.(More)
The antibiotic trimethoprim acts as a folate antagonist. Since trophoblasts are very sensitive to drugs that interfere with the folic acid cycle and thereby inhibit DNA synthesis, use of trimethoprim during the first trimester could be associated with miscarriage. A nationwide cohort study including all women in Denmark with a registered pregnancy between(More)
Bladder and urethral function was studied in 52 patients with multiple sclerosis using gas-cystometry combined with sphincter electromyography. 96% of the patients showed abnormalities of either detrusor or sphincter function. The abnormal patterns discovered indicated demyelinating lesions in the corticospinal as well as in the reticulospinal tract.(More)
PURPOSE We assess the effect of finasteride, a 5alpha-reductase inhibitor, on objective voiding parameters in men with lower urinary tract symptoms and benign prostatic enlargement on digital rectal examination (known as clinical benign prostatic enlargement) in a double-blind placebo controlled multicenter study using strict standard pressure flow study(More)
OBJECTIVES To assess the long-term effects of finasteride on pressure-flow parameters in men with urodynamically documented bladder outflow obstruction (BOO). METHODS One hundred twenty-one men with benign prostatic enlargement (BPE) and lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) underwent a pressure-flow study (PFS) at 1 of 11 clinical centers. The PFS(More)
During the years 1970-1974, a total of 44 patients referred by neurologists to the Urological Laboratory were classified in the following groups: paralysis agitans (27), postencephalitic parkinsonism (5), cerebral arteriosclerosis and parkinsonism (7) and cerebral arteriosclerosis and parkinsonism, suspected (5). Bladder function was assessed on the basis(More)
