OBJECTIVE: To explore the correlation between left ventricular global longitudinal strain (LVGLS) and major adverse cardiovascular event (MACE) occurrence in patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD). METHODS: From January 2019 to December 2023, ESRD patients undergoing maintenance dialysis and LVGLS measurement admitted to the First People's Hospital of Lanzhou City were selected as subjects. They were followed up for 12 months to record the occurrence of MACEs, and divided into MACE group and non-MACE group according to MACE presence or absence...

PURPOSE: To investigate the effect of oral theophylline on stent-related syndrome (SRS) after Double-J insertion. BACKGROUND: Double-J stent is widely using in many urological procedures. Infection, hematuria, and discomfort are some of common complication after stenting. Theophylline is a dimethylated xanthine that inhibits phosphodiesterase and blocks adenosine receptors. To relaxing effect of theophylline on smooth muscles and its effects on the urinary system, it seems it could reduce complications after inserting Double-J stent especially ureteral stent syndrome...

PURPOSE: Elevated blood lipids are considered a risk factor for atherosclerosis, which can lead to erectile dysfunction. This study aimed to explore the relationship between the atherogenic index of plasma (AIP), atherogenic coefficient (AC), Castelli's risk index-I (CRI-I), Castelli's risk index-II (CRI-II), and erectile dysfunction. METHODS: Based on the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) data from 2001-2004, multivariable-adjusted logistic regression models were used to evaluate the association between AIP, AC, CRI-I, and CRI-II with ED...

PURPOSE: The suburethral sling procedure has been widely used as the first-line treatment for female stress urinary incontinence (SUI). This study retrospectively compared the long-term surgical outcomes and complications between retropubic and transobturator suburethral sling procedures. METHODS: From 2010 to 2022, a total of 533 women with SUI underwent retropubic pubovaginal sling (PVS) or transobturator tape (TOT) procedures using a synthetic polypropylene mesh with or without concomitant anterior colporrhaphy...

Fabry Disease (FD) is a genetic disease caused by a deficiency in the activity of lysosomal galactosidase A (α-GalA), an enzyme responsible for the catabolism of globotriaosylceramide (Gb3). Since lysosomes are present throughout the body and play a crucial role in catabolism and recycling of cytosolic compounds, FD can affect multiple organs and result in various symptoms, including renal, cardiovascular, neurological, cutaneous, and ophthalmic manifestations. Due to the nonspecific symptoms and the rarity of FD, it is often diagnosed late in life...

PURPOSE: Prostate Imaging-Reporting and Data System (PI-RADS) assists in evaluating lesions on multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging (mpMRI), but there are still ongoing efforts in improving the predictive value for the presence of clinically significant PCa (csPCa) with a Gleason grade group ≥ 2 on Fusion-Biopsy. This pilot study intends to propose an easily implementable method for augmenting predictability of csPCa for PI-RADS. METHODS: A cohort of 151 consecutive patients underwent mpMRI Fusion and random US Biopsy as a result of having at least one PI-RADS lesion grade 3-5 between January 1, 2019 and December 31, 2022...

BACKGROUND: Recent studies demonstrated that chronic prostatitis (CP) is closely related to the gut microbiota (GM). Nevertheless, the causal relationship between GM and CP has not been fully elucidated. Therefore, the two-sample Mendelian randomization (MR) analysis was employed to investigate this association. METHODS: The summary data of gut microbiota derived from a genome-wide association study (GWAS) involving 18,340 individuals in the MiBioGen study served as the exposure, and the corresponding summary statistics for CP risk, representing the outcome, were obtained from the FinnGen databases (R9)...

PURPOSE: We aimed to assess the appropriateness of ChatGPT in providing answers related to prostate cancer (PCa) screening, comparing GPT-3.5 and GPT-4. METHODS: A committee of five reviewers designed 30 questions related to PCa screening, categorized into three difficulty levels. The questions were formulated identically for both GPTs three times, varying the prompts. Each reviewer assigned a score for accuracy, clarity, and conciseness. The readability was assessed by the Flesch Kincaid Grade (FKG) and Flesch Reading Ease (FRE)...

PURPOSE: To create a reproducible and standardized urethral stricture model in rats, evaluating both histomorphologic findings and gene expression data. In studies involving experimental animals, more standardization is needed for the creation of a urethral stricture model. METHODS: Sixteen male rats were randomized into two groups. The Sham group (n:8) underwent only a penoscrotal incision, while the stricture group (n:8) had their urethras exposed through a penoscrotal incision, followed by electrocauterization to the corpus spongiosum...

BACKGROUND: The interplay between serum bicarbonate levels and kidney outcomes is not fully understood. We conducted a prospective cohort study in three intensive care units (ICUs) to evaluate the association of serum bicarbonate levels with acute kidney injury (AKI) and kidney function recovery in critically ill patients. METHODS: A prospective cohort study in three intensive care units (ICUs) was performed. The serum bicarbonate level in the first 24 h after ICU admission was categorized as low (< 22 mEq/L), normal (22-26 mEq/L), or high (> 26 mEq/L)...
