Storage and periodic expulsion of urine by the bladder are controlled by central pathways and organized as simple on-off switching circuits. Several reports concerning aspects of micturition control have identified distinct regions in the brainstem, like the pontine micturition center (PMC) and the periaqueductal gray (PAG), as well as the cerebellum, basal(More)
In the last decade functional imaging has gained substantial importance for identifying cortical and subcortical brain regions being involved in the micturition circuit. However, possible gender differences are still a matter of debate. In the present study we used functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to determine micturition related brain regions(More)
PURPOSE The optimal management of patients with clinical stage I non-seminomatous germ cell testicular cancer (NSGCT I) was considered controversial until the European Germ Cell Cancer Consensus Group determined unambiguous treatment strategies. In order to assess the long-term outcome we evaluated the data of patients with NSGCT I. MATERIALS AND METHODS(More)
Urinary incontinence is a major concern following radical prostatectomy. The etiology is multifactorial involving intrinsic sphincter deficiency and/or detrusor hyperactivity and/or decreased bladder compliance. Recent studies employing functional imaging methodology nicely demonstrated the reference regions of the micturition circuit. Based on these(More)
