What are common treatments for urologic diseases?

Add answer

Most urologic diseases requiring treatment are benign and can be successfully managed with only medical care. Common treatments for a variety of urologic diseases include medications, surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, or a combination of these.

Unverified Answer

What causes urologic diseases?

Add answer

Diabetes, hypertension, and obesity all occur and increase the likelihood of developing urologic diseases with time. This increases the likelihood of developing urogenital cancers or of developing renal, ureteral, or bladder cancer.

Unverified Answer

Can urologic diseases be cured?

Add answer

At this time, it is impossible to cure urologic diseases by pharmacologic treatment alone. However, many urologic symptoms can be much decreased with pharmacologic remedies and procedures. A combination of medication and surgery may achieve the best results and reduce the adverse effects of those treatments.

Unverified Answer

What is urologic diseases?

Add answer

The symptoms for the urologic diseases may be similar in all patients; some of them might lead to the erroneous diagnosis of benign pathology resulting in missed treatment of patients. Recent findings provides useful clues for diagnosis and treatment of benign urologic diseases.

Unverified Answer

How many people get urologic diseases a year in the United States?

Add answer

Almost 8.5 million people develop renal disease and nearly 6.5 million people develop a urologic disorder. In both estimates, a significant portion of the cases will develop end-stage renal or urologic disease.

Unverified Answer

What are the signs of urologic diseases?

Add answer

For many patients, medical symptoms are the only clinical clue that a neurological disease may be present. However, in about 10% of patients, a medical history is not adequate to make a firm diagnosis of a neurological disease, and a neurological examination is needed. In this setting, it is helpful to perform a neurological examination when the clinical history raises suspicion for a neurological disorder. These signs include changes in visual acuity and aphasia. \nClinical exam: \nChanges in the sight are the chief sign of neural damage. Loss of vision may be sudden or gradual and involve both eyes. Any sudden loss of sight should prompt thorough CNS evaluation. \nUnexplained visual loss should be investigated immediately.

What does exparel 133 mg per 10 ml injection usually treat?

Add answer

The treatment of interstitial cystitis (IRs) with a single intravesical injection of saline solution followed by instillation of a 1:1 mixture of 1% bupivacaine with distilled water for 60 seconds can be an effective, fast-approaching, and safe intervention for IRs.

Unverified Answer

Have there been any new discoveries for treating urologic diseases?

Add answer

Many medications and clinical applications remain in the preliminary phases of testing. A number of newer treatments for urologic conditions are in development, including a new agent in development for patients with refractory fistulae. Another promising new drug is the antiangiogenesis drug, Sutent. Clinical trials for other drugs, such as bortezomib (Velcade), may help stop tumor growth in a number of patients. There are also new studies and therapies for treating some urinary and/or urogenital cancers (e.g., bladder cancer, prostate cancer).

Unverified Answer

What is the latest research for urologic diseases?

Add answer

Today's medicine for treating and preventing urologic diseases is new and exciting. There is a lot of new information about urologic diseases, surgical options, and treatments currently being formulated into clinical trials. Most new developments are aimed at improving patient outcomes as well as providing more choices to patients and doctors.

Does exparel 133 mg per 10 ml injection improve quality of life for those with urologic diseases?

Add answer

Exparel 133 mg per 10 ml injection was well tolerated with no clinically significant increase in pain scores or an adverse change in continence scores. These data support the use of periurethral injection of 0.1 mL of 0.25% bupivacaine for urologic interventions that are otherwise painful.

Unverified Answer

What is exparel 133 mg per 10 ml injection?

Add answer

There is no clear evidence that the addition of 0.33 micrograms of levobupivacaine per 10 ml increases the duration of procedural benefits that are attained with bupivacaine alone. On the other hand, the addition of levobupivacaine to the peri-operative dose of 1,8 mg per kg. is not associated with significant reductions in postoperative opioid requirements.

Unverified Answer

What is the primary cause of urologic diseases?

Add answer

[Menstrual disorder was reported by 32% of the patients with LUTS. Other urologic disorders were the source of [prostatitis] (13%), urethral stricture (12%), and chronic pelvic pain syndrome (11%). Urologic diseases can be divided into two groups, [benign disorders] (mainly LUTS [25%]) and serious disorders (prostatitis [14%], urethral strictures [14%], [infectious urethral disease] [14%], chronic pelvic pain syndrome [14%]). The [benign bladder disorders] were associated with the highest frequency of LUTS (55%).
