1/284. An urodynamic study of emepronium bromide in bladder dysfunction.

    The effect of emepronium bromide in 13 patients, most of whom had uninhibited bladders, has been studied urodynamically. Under the influence of this drug, the detrusor pressure and the urinary flow was reduced, and abdominal straining during during micturition was commonly recorded. The bladder capacity increased considerably, but all subjects developed residual urine. The effect of emepronium bromide on the bladder capacity seemed to last for a longer period than the effect on the detrusor pressure.

2/284. A unique cause of unconscious urinary incontinence.

    The authors present a case of a healthy 55-year-old woman with a 1-year history of vaginal malodor and perineal dampness. A pyridium (phenazopyridine) pad test revealed a well-defined stain area no greater than 3 cm. Cystoscopic examination revealed multiple multilobulated polypoid neoplasms, which we feel probably represent pedunculated hemangiomas. Removal of the neoplasms cured the dampness, malodor and recurrent vaginal infections. We submit this case as a unique cause of extraurethral incontinence.

3/284. Metastatic breast cancer diagnosed during a work-up for urinary incontinence: a case report.

    breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer among women in the USA and the second leading cause of cancer deaths in women. breast cancer metastases to the bladder are unusual but have been reported occasionally in the literature. The majority of the reports describe bladder metastases presenting with symptomatology or occurring in the context of disseminated disease. We present the case of an 87-year-old woman with a history of breast cancer and negative routine work-up for metastatic disease. She was referred to the urogynecology division in our institution because of complaints of urinary incontinence and urinary urgency. A urethrocystoscopy revealed suspicious bladder mucosal lesions that were biopsied. The pathology findings, when compared to the original cancer specimens, were consistent with metastatic disease. This case suggests that in patients with a history of breast cancer, even subtle urinary symptoms should be thoroughly evaluated.

4/284. An unexpected complicationof the remote-controlled intraurethral valve pump for urinary incontinence.

    We report an unexpected complication of the remote-controlled intraurethral valve pump in a patient with neurogenic bladder. A meningomyelocele patient with an atonic bladder received an intraurethral valve pump. Acute urinary retention was caused by a mucus clot obstructing the pump. Prior to extended clinical use, the remote-controlled intraurethral valve pump should be evaluated in prospective multicenter studies.

5/284. adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse as patients: two case studies.

    adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse comprise a high percentage of the patients seen in gastrointestinal and genitourinary clinics and are commonly found among the patient population treated by WOC nurses. The physical and emotional consequences of sexual abuse may permeate the survivor's life, but rise to the forefront only with the additional stress of an ostomy or urinary diversion. Two case studies are described involving women the authors encountered in their practices.

6/284. AMS 800 artificial sphincter: an unusual case of circumscribed peritonitis due to prosthetic reservoir infection.

    OBJECTIVES: male urinary incontinence is nowadays a rare event in patients submitted to radical prostatectomy. In these cases, insertion on a hydraulic prosthesis is often the only therapeutical solution. Complications following this type of surgery are rare and when they occur, generally depend on the bacterial contamination of the device which will be "rejected". The cuff is generally the first cause of infection and its prompt removal should solve the problem in the majority of the cases. methods: Herein we report the case of a patient submitted to cuff removal three years earlier who consulted for a symptomless circumscribed peritonitis due to bacterial contamination of the intraperitoneal reservoir. RESULTS AND CONCLUSION: This report emphasizes the need to re-examine the indications for intraperitoneal implantation of the reservoir. Moreover, in case of a three-component prosthetic device, the external components (pump, cylinders and/or cuff) should be removed in a single step, at the same time, in order to avoid future contamination of the internal components.

7/284. Spinal angiolipoma: case report and review of literature.

    Spinal extradural angiolipomas are distinct, benign, and rare lesions composed of mature lipocytes admixed with abnormal blood vessels. They account for 0.14% of all spinal axis tumors. The case described here was a 72-year-old patient presenting with a history of paraparesis, hypoesthesia under the T2 level, hyperreflexia, and urinary overflow incontinence that appeared within 7 days after the administration of a coronary vasodilator drug regimen. The spinal magnetic resonance scan showed a lipomatous mass with signal void lesions, suggesting a vascular component of the tumor. The patient improved rapidly after surgical resection of the epidural tumor and decompression of the cord. According to the present literature, the duration of neurological symptoms ranges from 1 to 180 months (mean 28 months). But this patient's neurological deterioration took place 4 days before hospitalization. We believe that this can be explained by the increased tumor blood volume caused by vasodilator drugs, which in turn exerted a pulsatile compressive effect on the cord.

8/284. Oral-facial-digital syndrome with acromelic short stature: a new variant--overlap with Ellis Van Creveld syndrome.

    The Oral-Facial-Digital syndromes (OFDS) are a heterogeneous group of disorders having common oral, facial, and digital malformations. Here, we report a consanguineous family with a new variety of OFDS associated with acromelic short stature and genu valgum; the features overlapping with Ellis Van Creveld syndrome. One of the sibs has urinary incontinence and growth hormone deficiency, which has not been reported earlier in any type of OFDS in the literature.

9/284. The role of 99mtechnetium dimercapto-succinic acid renal scans in the evaluation of occult ectopic ureters in girls with paradoxical incontinence.

    PURPOSE: We describe the use of 99mtechnetium (Tc) dimercapto-succinic acid (DMSA) renal scintigraphy to document poorly functioning and/or ectopic renal units associated with occult ectopic ureters. MATERIALS AND methods: During the last 8 years 6 toilet-trained girls were referred for lifelong continuous urinary dribbling. Initial radiological evaluation included renal and bladder sonography in 6, excretory urography in 4, a mercaptoacetyltriglycine-3 renal scan in 1 and cystovaginoscopy in 2. Ultimately a 99mTc-DMSA renal scan was performed in all 6 girls before surgical intervention. RESULTS: Sonography failed to establish the diagnosis of ureteral ectopia in all cases, and revealed a normal solitary kidney in 3, normal kidneys in 1, an apparently uncomplicated unilateral duplication without hydroureteronephrosis in 1 and a contralateral uncomplicated duplication in 1. Excretory urography in 4 cases was inconclusive and showed a solitary kidney in 1, ipsilateral duplication without a normal appearing upper pole collecting system in 1, contralateral uncomplicated duplication in 1 and normal kidneys in 1. A mercaptoacetyltriglycine-3 renal scan in another girl with a solitary kidney on sonography failed to demonstrate a contralateral small ectopic kidney. Cystovaginoscopy performed in 2 patients by other pediatric urologists was nondiagnostic. 99mTc-DMSA renal scintigraphy was diagnostic in all 6 cases, and revealed a small poorly functioning ectopic kidney in 3 and a poorly functioning dysplastic upper pole moiety in 3, which were consistent with a diagnosis of ureteral ectopia. An ectopic ureter was confirmed by cystoscopic and surgical findings in all girls. CONCLUSIONS: 99mTc-DMSA renal scintigraphy reliably detects and localizes hypoplastic ectopic kidneys and poorly functioning upper pole moieties associated with occult ectopic ureters in girls with continuous urinary leakage.

10/284. The Mitrofanoff urinary diversion for complex vesicovaginal fistulae: experience from uganda.

    OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the results of Mitrofanoff continent urinary diversion in a group of women with persistent severe incontinence after vesicovaginal fistula (VVF) secondary to obstructed labour. patients AND methods: Seven women with severe incontinence following a VVF were offered the Mitrofanoff procedure after all other attempts had failed to restore continence. In three patients a caecocystoplasty formed the urinary reservoir and in four the bladder was used. In all seven patients the appendix was used as the conduit for self-catheterization. The mean (range) follow-up was 10 (3-14) months. RESULTS: One patient died postoperatively from hepatic failure, which could not be attributed to the particular procedure. One patient required re-operation at 10 days to adjust the conduit, but of the six patients who recovered, all are fully continent and self-catheterizing with no difficulty. CONCLUSION: The Mitrofanoff procedure appears to be a valuable technique to restore continence in this difficult group of patients.
