Prostatism


Presentation

  • We suggest that no routine pre-operative imaging need be performed in patients presenting with prostatism.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The present study evaluates the efficacy of alfuzosin in a group of the patients with prostatism. METHODS: Eighty-two patients with lower urinary tract symptoms aged from 55 to 76 years (mean age 62.36 /- 6.4) were enrolled in the study.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Abstract A case history is presented of a patient with treatable dementia of unusual pathogenesis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Of the 53 patients presented with irritative symptoms, 33 showed detrusor instability(62%); Of the 43 patients mainly presented with obstructive symptoms, only 12(28%) showed detrusor instability.[koreamed.org]
  • Abstract Comparison of different screening methods including digital rectal examination (DRE) and estimation of serum prostate specific antigen (PSA) had been done for detection of cancer prostate at initial stages in 186 patients presenting with prostatism[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Fatigue
  • Six patients (13%) were dropped from the study because of side effects (2 for fatigue, 2 for headache, 2 for dizziness): 5 during the titration phase (4 mg AM: 2; 8 mg AM: 2; 8 mg PM: 1), and 1 during the treatment phase (8 mg AM).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Eight patients (18%) were withdrawn from the study because of adverse events (fatigue 1, asthenia 1, headache 3, dizziness 4): 5 during the titration phase (TER-AM: 2, DOX-AM: 2, TER-PM: 1) and 3 during the treatment phase (TER-AM: 2, DOX-AM: 1).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Sepsis
  • No incontinence, impotency, retrograde ejaculation, sepsis, or serious bleeding developed. An intraprostatic fissure, which spared the bladder neck, was a uniform finding and the most likely mechanism of lasting action of TUDP.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Lymphadenopathy
  • Computed tomography of the abdomen and thorax did not reveal any lymphadenopathy. He was categorized as Stage I Extranodal and treated with R-CHOP-based chemotherapy.[cancerjournal.net]
Bulky Stool
  • Abstract Haemorrhoids are less prevalent in Africans than their European counterparts due to consumption of high-residue diet and bulky stools resulting in less straining at stooling.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Withdrawn
  • Eight patients (18%) were withdrawn from the study because of adverse events (fatigue 1, asthenia 1, headache 3, dizziness 4): 5 during the titration phase (TER-AM: 2, DOX-AM: 2, TER-PM: 1) and 3 during the treatment phase (TER-AM: 2, DOX-AM: 1).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Prostatic Disease
  • Serum PSA levels of patients with prostatism with regard to age as well as these levels in the male population at risk but without clinical prostatic disease (those above the age of 40) should be well documented.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The specific urinary symptoms of nocturia, weak stream, restarting, urgency and sensation of incomplete emptying are strongly age-related and, therefore, may be predictive of a prostatic disease process.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Drug companies have expended huge efforts in increasing patients' and doctors' awareness of prostatic disease.[bmj.com]
Bladder Distention
  • Abstract Urinary bladder distention is a rarely reported cause of iliac vein compression. We report a case of bilateral lower extremity and scrotal edema resulting from marked bladder distention.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Asthenia
  • Eight patients (18%) were withdrawn from the study because of adverse events (fatigue 1, asthenia 1, headache 3, dizziness 4): 5 during the titration phase (TER-AM: 2, DOX-AM: 2, TER-PM: 1) and 3 during the treatment phase (TER-AM: 2, DOX-AM: 1).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Workup

  • The etiological workup for the patient, who did not have any disease and was not on any medication, included blood (full blood, urea, creatinine, prostate-specific antigen, sedimentation, CRP) and urine examination (full urine), urological examination[dusunenadamdergisi.org]
  • For example, a male transplant patient could have two to three UTIs before a urologic workup yields a diagnosis of BPH.[cjasn.asnjournals.org]
Small Kidney
  • Abnormalities found in 18 cases included dilatation of the excretory system, urinary calculi, congenital anomaly, acquired small kidney, renal cysts and retroperitoneal fibrosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Treatment

  • RESULTS: Although IPSS significantly decreased in the 2nd week of the treatment compared to pre-treatment value, it reached a maximum decrease in the 6th week of the treatment.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Laser treatment is producing short term results that are slightly inferior to TURP but may have less morbidity. The role of conservative treatment is important in selected men.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Nineteen men accepted terazosin treatment and are the subjects of the present series. They were treated over a mean period of 8 months, the longest treatment lasting over 22 months.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • In the relief of uncomplicated prostatism in youthful patients, TUDP compares favorably with other treatment alternatives.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • After spiral treatment the urethral resistance decreased in 8 of 9 patients, but according to Abrams and Griffith's [(1979): Br J Urol 51:129-134] definition, only 2 were unobstructed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Prognosis

  • The prognosis depends mainly on patients' age, histological classification, tumor stage, and type of infiltration (primary or secondary), rather than the modality of treatment. [2] This case is worth reporting because of the rarity as well as probable[cancerjournal.net]
  • Prognosis Community- and practice-based studies suggest that men with LUTS can expect slow progression of symptoms. However, symptoms can wax and wane without treatment.[aafp.org]
  • Experimental treatments Ethanol injections and botulinum toxin injections are currently being explored as potential treatments for LUTS in patients with benign prostatic obstruction. [ 2 ] Prognosis [ 2 ] Studies suggest that few patients in a WW programme[patient.info]

Etiology

  • PURPOSE: We determined the incidence of voiding symptoms, urodynamic etiology and satisfaction with therapy in a large cohort of men with prostatism during a 12-year period.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The patients were divided into 2 groups: group 1-78 with primary BPH dysfunction and group 2-47 with prostatism of ambiguous etiology.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Comparable scores occur in patients with lower urinary tract symptoms of varying etiology, and even among women.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Involvement of the central nervous system is the most constant feature of systemic torulosis and is usually the cause of death. 1 The advent of an effective and specific therapeutic agent, amphotericin B, has made the establishment of an etiologic diagnosis[nejm.org]

Epidemiology

  • BACKGROUND: In epidemiological studies, non-response may raise the question of generalizability to the target population.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • SUBJECTS AND METHODS: A community-based cross-sectional epidemiological study was performed in Yonchon County, Korea. The Korean version of the International Prostate Symptom Score (IPSS) was used to assess the severity of prostatism.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hypertension has been suggested by Briganti et al.[13] to be involved in pathophysiology of BPH. Epidemiological studies have documented that hypertensive men are more likely to develop BPH.[jmsh.ac.in]

Prevention

  • You can also add a definition of prostatism yourself 2 1 prostate trouble (pop) 1 1 A blockage at the base of the bladder that reduces or prevents the flow of urine into the urethra, the tube that carries urine out of the body (also known as bladder outlet[dictionary.university]

  • To prevent worsening, do not drink too much, make healthy lifestyle and urinate as in need (not containing). If they are increasing urgent treatment it is necessary to prevent further damage to bladder and kidney. See your doctor.[haysoluciones.com]
