    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Dias; Diogo; Mendes, Pedro Abreu; Oliveira, Paulo Dinis; Pinto, Rui Almeida
      Abstract: imagePurpose of review Despite available treatments, many bladder pain syndrome/interstitial cystitis (BPS/IC) patients continue to have poor quality of life. Thus, there is an urge for new therapies. Our manuscript aims to review papers about BPS/IC treatments published in the last 2 years.Recent findings During this period, several treatments were tested, most of them new and others combining treatments already used. Pentosan polysulfate, interleukin 1 antagonist, low energy shock wave, physical therapy, hypnosis, acupuncture, clorpactin, dimethyl sulfoxide and hyaluronic acid plus botulinum toxin-A showed positive results. ASP3652 and lidocaine-releasing intravesical systems failed to prove their efficacy.Summary Validation of these studies is arduous due to the broad spectre of BPS/IC phenotypes, small number of patients enrolled, distinct outcome measures and short-term follow-up. It is also important to highlight that some authors combined therapies, and others split central and peripheric phenotypes before treatment. Therefore, soon, phenotyping and combining therapies with a step-by-step approach will be needed in BPS/IC treatment.

           syndrome/interstitial cystitis

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Tornic; Jure; Engeler, Daniel
      Abstract: imagePurpose of review Bladder pain syndrome/interstitial cystitis (BPS/IC) is a common medical problem in both sexes affecting people of all ages. Patients might report overactive bladder symptoms with additional bladder pain at maximum bladder filling, during and after micturition. This review aims to highlight pathophysiological mechanisms associated with this disease.Recent findings Latest literature exposes different pathophysiological mechanisms such as impaired urothelial barrier function, alteration of urothelial factors and cytokines, chronic inflammation, vascular lesions, neurogenic inflammation and processes in the central nervous system leading to central sensitization. According to the involved mechanisms, BPS/IC may be arranged in clusters according to the clinical phenotype thus helping in clinical decision-making and treatment. Moreover, patients with BPS/IC suffer from other comorbidities such as fibromyalgia, irritable bowel syndrome, chronic pain and functional syndromes and psychosomatic diseases making the management challenging for medical professionals.Summary Bladder pain syndrome/interstitial cystitis is a complex heterogeneous medical condition involving different pathomechanisms leading to bladder pain and dysfunction, consequently, impairing quality-of-life in affected individuals. However, these mechanisms are still not fully understood, so that patient treatments often remain unsatisfactory. For this reason, continuing research is important to understand the underlying pathomechanisms to discover biomarkers and treatment targets eventually improving diagnostic and therapeutic measures of BPS/IC.

      Authors: Naik; Nithesh; Talyshinskii, Ali; Rassweiler, Jens; Hameed, B.M. Zeeshan; Somani, Bhaskar K.
      Abstract: imagePurpose of review There are enough publications on the use of telemedicine, wearable devices, and mobile applications in urology; however, their collective impact on urological care has not been adequately studied. This review seeks to address this deficiency by providing a descriptive analysis of the recent use of telemedicine, wearable technology, and mobile applications in urology as well as elucidating their associated challenges.Recent findings There are studies that were dedicated to the use of telemedicine, wearables, and mobile apps in urology according to inclusion criteria, respectively. They were successfully implemented in different urological subfields, such as urogynecology, endourology, pediatric urology, and uro-oncology, and led to time safety, remote monitoring, and better patient awareness. However, several concerns also exist, such as issues with data safety, measurement deviations, technical limitations, and lack ofquality.Summary Telemedicine, wearables, and mobile apps have already shown their potential in urological practice. However, further studies are needed to expand both our understanding of their current state and their potential for further development and clinical use.

  • The urothelial barrier in interstitial cystitis/bladder pain syndrome: its
           form and function, an overview of preclinical models

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: van Ginkel; Charlotte; Hurst, Robert E.; Janssen, Dick
      Abstract: imagePurpose of review Investigating bladder pain syndrome/interstitial cystitis (IC/BPS) preclinically is challenging. Various research models have been used to mimic the urothelial barrier closely and replicate the disease. The aim of this review is to discuss preclinical research related to the urothelial barrier in context of IC/BPS.Recent findings In vivo models mimic IC/BPS mainly with toxic substances in the urine, with protaminesulfate and proteoglycan deglycolysation resembling a temporary impaired barrier as seen in IC/BPS. This temporary increased permeability has also been found in vitro models. Glycosaminoglycan replenishment therapy has been described, in vivo and in vitro, to protect and enhance recover properties of the urothelium. The roles of immune and neurogenic factors in the pathogenesis of IC/BPS remains relatively understudied.Summary Preclinical studies provide opportunities to identify the involvement of specific pathologic pathways in IC/BPS. For further research is warranted to elucidate the primary or secondary role of permeability, together with inflammatory and neurogenic causes of the disease.

           treatment opportunity

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Taubert; Erich; van der Aa, Frank; Heesakkers, John
      Abstract: imagePurpose of review The purpose of this article is to present recent findings of KU002 (brimapitide) as a novel treatment option for interstitial cystitis/bladder pain syndrome (IC/BPS).Recent findings IC/BPS is a complex and poorly understood heterogeneous syndrome, with many burdensome symptoms that severely affect patients’ quality of life. Treatment options beyond conservative and nonpharmacologic approaches remain limited, and there is an unmet medical need for effective medical treatments. While there are multiple ongoing clinical trials in this area, only a few explore new treatment options. This article summarizes current ongoing development and reports the findings of one such trial.Summary In a phase 1/2a exploratory trial, intravesical instillation of brimapitide confirmed local action while eliciting in minimal systemic exposure, resulting in a promising and favorable safety profile. Efficacy exploration suggests that brimapitide reduces pain, improves signs and symptoms of IC/BPS and improves the general wellbeing of the study participants.

      Authors: Rozenberg; Boy B.; van Ginkel, Charlotte J.; Janssen, Dick A.W.
      Abstract: imagePurpose of review This study aims to further understand the physiological mechanism of chondroitin sulfate treatment on the urinary bladder in cases of inflammation, by investigating the effect of chondroitin sulfate therapy on recovery of urothelial barrier in an in-vitro chronic injury model.Recent findings With inflammatory bladder conditions, the urothelial barrier seems decreased. Glycosaminoglycan (GAG) replacement therapy is supposed to help restore this barrier. Clinical studies on inflammatory bladder conditions are complicated because of the heterogeneous patient population, hence the need for preclinical models.Summary In a model using porcine urothelial cells, functional barrier (TEER) and barrier markers were assessed. Chronic urothelial damage was simulated through protamine sulfate instillations with and without subsequent chondroitin sulfate instillations during 3 days. Chondroitin sulfate instillations significantly improved TEER compared to protamine sulfate treatment only (TEER difference 310 Ω.cm2, P

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Nedbal; Carlotta; Naik, Nitesh; Castellani, Daniele; Gauhar, Vineet; Geraghty, Robert; Somani, Bhaskar Kumar
      Abstract: imagePurpose of review ChatGPT has emerged as a potentially useful tool for healthcare. Its role in urology is in its infancy and has much potential for research, clinical practice and for patient assistance. With this narrative review, we want to draw a picture of what is known about ChatGPT's integration in urology, alongside future promises and challenges.Recent findings The use of ChatGPT can ease the administrative work, helping urologists with note-taking and clinical documentation such as discharge summaries and clinical notes. It can improve patient engagement through increasing awareness and facilitating communication, as it has especially been investigated for uro-oncological diseases. Its ability to understand human emotions makes ChatGPT an empathic and thoughtful interactive tool or source for urological patients and their relatives. Currently, its role in clinical diagnosis and treatment decisions is uncertain, as concerns have been raised about misinterpretation, hallucination and out-of-date information. Moreover, a mandatory regulatory process for ChatGPT in urology is yet to be established.Summary ChatGPT has the potential to contribute to precision medicine and tailored practice by its quick, structured responses. However, this will depend on how well information can be obtained by seeking appropriate responses and asking the pertinent questions. The key lies in being able to validate the responses, regulating the information shared and avoiding misuse of the same to protect the data and patient privacy. Its successful integration into mainstream urology needs educational bodies to provide guidelines or best practice recommendations for the same.

  • Single use flexible ureteroscopes: a review of current technologies and
           cost effectiveness analysis

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Talyshinskii; Ali; Gauhar, Vineet; Castellani, Daniele; Knoll, Thomas; Shah, Kaushikkumar; Wan, Shaw P.; Somani, Bhaskar K.
      Abstract: imagePurpose of review Flexible ureteroscopy (fURS) has evolved into both diagnostic and therapeutic modalities. Our review discusses the cost-effectiveness of single use flexible ureteroscopes (su-fURS) and the use of these instruments in routine urological practice.Recent findings There are studies which support the use of su-fURS with an argument of both cost and clinical utility over reusable flexible ureteroscopes (ru-fURS). However, the cost may vary across countries, hence is difficult to compare the results based on the current literature. Perhaps therefore there is a role for hybrid strategy incorporating ru- and su-fURS, where su-fURS are employed in complex endourological cases with a high risk of scope damage or fracture to preserve ru-fURS, with the ability to maintain clinical activity in such an event.Summary While there seems to be some cost advantages with su-fURS with reduced sterilization and maintenance costs, the data supporting it is sparse and limited. This choice of scope would depend on the durability of ru-fURS, procedural volumes, limited availability of sterilization units in some centers and potential risk of infectious complications. It is time that cost-benefit analysis is conducted with defined outcomes for a given healthcare set-up to help with the decision making on the type of scope that best serves their needs.

      Authors: Kendall; Harry J.; Schrijvers, Julia; Heesakkers, John P.F.A.
      Abstract: imagePurpose of review Despite established effectiveness in overactive bladder and nonobstructive retention, neuromodulation's application in interstitial cystitis/bladder pain syndrome (IC/BPS) remains a topic of ongoing research. The purpose of this article is to review recent developments in neuromodulation as treatment of IC/BPS offering guidance for healthcare practitioners dealing with IC/BPS cases.Recent findings Recent research underlines the promising role of sacral, tibial and pudendal neuromodulation in management of IC/BPS symptoms. Studies reveal encouraging outcomes, particularly in alleviating urgency and frequency symptoms. However, while urgency and frequency symptoms tend to improve, comprehensive pain relief remains a challenge. Percutaneous tibial nerve stimulation (PTNS) and transcutaneous tibial nerve stimulation (TTNS) stand out due to their minimal invasive nature. Existing literature points to the need for larger prospective studies with extended follow-up periods to validate the efficacy and sustainability of neuromodulation.Summary Neuromodulation is a promising treatment modality for refractory IC/BPS. Due to the minimal invasive nature, they should be tried before rigorous surgery. However, the limited quantity of available data and the variability in pain relief outcomes necessitate cautious interpretation. The review emphasizes the need for further research.

  • Should endoscopic laser excision be offered as the first-line management
           for patients with eroded mesh' Outcomes of a systematic review of
           literature

      Authors: Ripa; Francesco; Enikeev, Dmitry; Talyshinskii, Ali; Juliebø-Jones, Patrick; Tzelves, Lazaros; Kallidonis, Panagiotis; Somani, Bhaskar
      Abstract: imagePurpose of review Mesh erosions following previous synthetic sling/mesh surgery for stress urinary incontinence (SUI) have become increasingly common. This systematic review provides evidence for the role of laser excision as a first-line management in patients with eroded mesh.Recent findings Fourteen articles (173 patients) were included for the final review. Among these, 138 patients (79.8%) were submitted to trans-urethral laser excision of eroded urethral/bladder mesh over a median time to presentation of 36.6 months. Over a median follow-up of 23.6 months, 88 (63.7%) reported a complete resolution, 32 (23.2%) reported persistence or recurrence of SUI and 17 (12.3%) presented with recurrent mesh erosion. The success rate after a single endoscopic procedure was 66.5, vs. 93.5% after additional endoscopic procedures, with only 9 (6.6%) requiring open surgical excision. Overall, there were seven (5.1%) postoperative complications including two urethrovaginal fistulas, two UTIs and haematuria each, and one case of urethral diverticulum.Summary Laser excision of eroded mid-urethral slings into either the bladder or urethra is a challenging complication of minimally invasive incontinence surgery. Laser excision was able to achieve a good success rate with single or staged endoscopic procedure with a low risk of complication. It represents a valid first treatment option, although patients should be managed in mesh referral centres in collaboration with uro-gynaecology teams.

      Authors: Vo; Anh Khoi; Somani, Bhaskar K.; Ulvik, Øyvind; Beisland, Christian; Seitz, Christian; Juliebø-Jones, Patrick
      Abstract: imagePurpose of review Kidney stone disease is recognized to negatively impact quality of life. This pertains to acute episodes, surgical interventions and even during asymptomatic periods. Over time there has been increased attention towards assessing this subjective parameter, including as a determinant of treatment success. Our aim was to evaluate the current status and emerging trends in this field.Recent findings Patient groups most affected appear to be recurrent stone formers, cystine stone formers, women, younger populations, non-Caucasians and low-income populations. Several stone specific patient reported outcome measures are now available of which, WISQol has been implemented the most in clinical research studies. More invasive interventions such as percutaneous nephrolithotomy impede quality of life to greater extent than alternatives such as shockwave lithotripsy.Summary There are certain patient groups who are more vulnerable to the negative impact of kidney stone disease on their quality of life. Urologists can improve patient care by recognizing these particular populations as well as by implemented patient reported outcome measures in their routine clinical practice and when performing research.

      Authors: Bouchalakis; Athanasios; Somani, Bhaskar Kumar; Lima, Estevao; Rassweiler-Seyfried, Marie-Claire; Mamoulakis, Charalampos; Tokas, Theodoros
      Abstract: imagePurpose of review Percutaneous nephrolithotripsy (PCNL) is the first-line management option for large kidney stones (>2 cm). It remains, however, a demanding procedure with considerable morbidity. The present narrative review summarizes recent knowledge from original research studies investigating navigation systems/three-dimensional (3D) imaging in PCNL, particularly on publications during the past 12–18 months.Recent findings Navigation systems and 3D imaging are primarily used for preoperative planning, with few intra-operative applications. Patient management and residents’ training could benefit from their use.Summary Navigation systems and 3D imaging technology have emerged as a potential game-changer in PCNL. Even though available evidence is currently scarce/inconclusive, the safety/efficacy of navigation systems and 3D dimensional imaging use in PCNL appears promising. This advanced technology offers precise anatomical mapping, improved visualization, and surgical accuracy. Enabling a comprehensive preoperative evaluation and improving guidance, navigation systems, and 3D imaging technology may improve the safety and efficacy of PCNL. With continuous technological evolution, it is expected that improvements/innovations will offer further aid in such demanding procedures. Familiarization and cost reduction are necessary for widespread application, while larger-scale prospective studies and well designed randomized controlled trials are still needed.

  • Chronic pelvic pain; more than just the bladder

      Authors: Messelink; Bert; Flink, Ida; dos Santos, Ana; Adamse, Corine
      Abstract: imagePurpose of review Chronic pelvic pain is much of a burden to those who suffer from it. Additionally, in many patients medical doctors, such as urologists are unable to identify a cause or clear pathology that can explain the pain. Still numerous patients and doctors keep on searching for a cause, focussing particularly on the pelvic organs. Lots of diagnostics and treatment methods are used but often without success. In recent years, we have gained increased insight into the mechanisms of pain and adapted the terminology accordingly.Recent findings Two aspects of chronic pelvic pain have gained more attention. First, the myofascial aspects, especially the role of the pelvic floor muscles in maintaining the pain and as a therapeutic option. Second, the role of the brain and the psychological aspects intertwine with the pain and its consequences also open up for alternative management options. In terminology chronic pain is now included in the ICD-11, a historical change. Introducing chronic primary pain (no cause found) helps us to look away from the organ and deal with the patient as a whole human being.Summary The findings reported here are helpful for your daily practice. Looking from a broad perspective gives the patient the feeling of being seen and heard. Working together in a multidisciplinary team makes your work easier and gives more satisfaction.Video abstract http://links.lww.com/COU/A44

  • Ureterorenoscopy for stone disease in pregnancy: a literature review and
           update

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Graf; Sebastian; Somani, Bhaskar K.
      Abstract: imagePurpose of review Management of stone disease in pregnancy poses a challenge for all healthcare professionals involved in their care. During pregnancy, there is an increase in the incidence of urolithiasis. Major technological and procedural advances have been seen in the last decade for endoscopic management of urolithiasis. The purpose of this review is to provide a comprehensive workup of available literature on use of ureteroscopy for stone treatment during pregnancy.Recent findings We identified 268 articles on screening, of which 28 were included in the final review. Overall adverse event rates were low, with no severe complications reported in the included studies. On multivariate analysis, the only significant correlation was an inverse relationship between calculated caseload and adverse obstetric events. No further correlation could be found between caseload, operation technique and adverse event rates. Data quality was low among the included studies.Summary While ureteroscopy is a relatively safe and effective option for active stone treatment during pregnancy, they should be performed in experienced endourology centres in conjunction with obstetric teams.
