Basic and translational research efforts have provided new medical approaches for the treatment of LUTS
associated with BPH.
It is known that high PVR is an important cause of LUTS
and it is the result of many LUT
Since Algorithm 2 is better suited to map NPN-equivalent functions on a shared LUT
pair, we will use the results obtained from it for the remainder of this section.
The higher gain is the wider range of LUT
The 5-bit input word X can be mapped into a 4-bit LUT
address (d3d2d1d0), by set of mapping relations as
The prevalence of lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS
) in the USA, the UK and Sweden: results from the Epidemiology of LUTS
Previously it has been speculated that age-related impairment of blood supply to the prostate might have a key role in the pathophysiology of LUTS
, since lower urinary bladder perfusion has been demonstrated in elderly patients with LUTS
when compared to younger patients [2, 11].
Although there were also some negative reports [50, 51], a recent meta-analysis, including a total of 19 studies, reported a positive association between BMI and LUTS
associated with BPH (odds ratio (OR) = 1.28%) .
In patients with PD, LUTS
are attributed to lesions of the basal ganglia, which interfere with normal inhibition of voiding by the pontine micturition center.
The objectives were to: (1) quantify the sexual function and satisfaction and severity of LUTS
among men in a rural Ugandan setting; (2) examine how severity of LUTS
is associated with sexual function and satisfaction, and; (3) examine effects of demographic factors on sexual function and satisfaction in the context of LUTS
This article will discuss various complementary health approaches utilized to treat LUTS
in the integrative medicine (IM) department of our institution and provide a case exemplar to illustrate the beneficial effects of IM in reducing symptom burden.
Potential causes of LUTS
in cats include bacterial infection of the lower urinary tract, urolithiasis (urinary stones), obstruction of the lower urinary tract with uroliths (urinary stones), and feline idiopathic cystitis (FIC), a diagnosis that is achieved by ruling out all other causes of LUTS
