Beaumont Holds First International Congress on Underactive Bladder

Royal Oak, Mich. (PRWEB) February 17, 2014

Underactive bladder, estimated to affect more than 20 percent of the elderly population, is an unrecognized disease that has a major influence on the health and independence of seniors.

Beaumont Health System urologists hope to heighten awareness of underactive bladder, or UAB, through an international forum funded in part by the National Institutes of Health. The Feb. 20-21 Congress of Urologic Research and Education on Aging Underactive Bladder, or CURE-UAB, in Bethesda, Md., is attracting physicians, researchers and nurses from around the world for scientific discussion and interdisciplinary collaboration.

Underactive bladder syndrome is a chronic, complex and debilitating disease affecting a persons ability to empty their bladder. Those with an underactive bladder can hold unusually large amounts of urine but have a diminished sense of when the bladder is full and are not able to contract the muscles sufficiently or forcefully enough to empty the bladder.

Symptoms and severity of the condition can vary. Some with UAB must use a straw catheter several times a day to empty their bladder. This puts them at risk of developing catheter-associated infections. Others have indwelling catheters, left in place for a period of time, or undergo surgical procedures to relieve UAB symptoms.

UAB is primarily associated with aging, diabetes, and neurological diseases, and it is a major cause of nursing home admissions. Currently, no medications or therapies have proven effective in the long-term treatment of UAB and no known cure exists. UAB can also lead to other conditions such as urinary tract infections, bladder stones, or, in severe cases, kidney damage. The emotional effects of the disease can be devastatingcausing embarrassment, and diminishing both quality of life and independence.

CURE-UAB is the first meeting dedicated to discussion of underactive bladder and features a world-renowned faculty, says Michael Chancellor, M.D., director, neuro-urology, Beaumont Health System. Our goal is to bring the worlds top clinicians and researchers together to collaborate and promote advancement of underactive bladder research and education.

Physicians and researchers from as far away as Australia, Japan, and India are expected to attend.

At the forum, Beaumont researchers will present the results of the first population-based research of underactive bladder syndrome. Twenty-three percent of the 633 respondents in Metro Detroit reported having a problem emptying the bladder completely, yet only 11 percent had ever heard of UAB. Those reporting UAB symptoms were twice as likely to describe their health as poor or fair compared to other respondents. The results suggest that the burden and impact of UAB are significant.

Dr. Chancellor will discuss novel therapies for treating UAB, including stem cell and gene therapy. The worlds first stem cell treatment for UAB was performed at Beaumont last September.

Beaumonts UAB research is supported by the Robert B. and Ann S. Aikens Urology Research Fund and the Underactive Bladder Foundation.

The Rottenstein Law Group LLP Notes Concern over Growing Number of Low T Diagnoses

Rockville Centre, NY (PRWEB) May 06, 2014

Low testosterone, or Low T, is poised to surpass erectile dysfunction as the most popular mens health issue. The number of prescriptions written by doctors for testosterone therapy drugs like AndroGel , has become a multi-billion dollar business for pharmaceutical companies, raising concerns among some in the medical community. The Rottenstein Law Group, LLP notes this growing concern, as well as the potential for injuries to occur in men who might not be ideal candidates for this increasingly popular form of treatment.

According to a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), the number of prescriptions written for testosterone has more than tripled in the past decade,* and Low T clinics promising renewed virility to men have leading urologists concerned. In most doctors offices, you dont see a big shingle over their door saying, Get your testosterone here! Dr. Edward Karpman, a board-certified urologist told Kaiser Health News. Any man who presents, especially in his 40s and 50s, with new onset erectile dysfunction is at an increased risk for cardiovascular disease and even heart attack or myocardial infarction, he added.** A recent study published in the peer-reviewed medical journal, PLOS One, supports Dr. Karpmans opinion, showing that the risk of heart attacks and strokes among men over the age of 55 who use testosterone has doubled.***

The latest figures about the increased risk for heart attacks in men who undergo testosterone therapy are quite concerning, said Rochelle Rottenstein, principal of the Rottenstein Law Group. Patients and doctors might not be fully aware of the adverse side effects, but we are beginning to understand that the risks might outweigh the benefits.

The Rottenstein Law Group LLP encourages anyone who believes they or a loved one have been injured during testosterone therapy to speak to a personal injury lawyer about filing a lawsuit to obtain compensation from the manufacturer of the prescription drug.





The Rottenstein Law Group LLP is a New York-based firm that represents clients nationwide in mass tort actions. The firm was founded by Rochelle Rottenstein, who has more than two decades of experience as a lawyer, to represent clients hurt by defective medical devices and medications. (Attorney advertising.

Opera Fans Experience Worse Than Expected Side Effects of Prostate Cancer Treatment

Largo, FL (PRWEB) May 07, 2014

In a survey of more than 200 men with prostate cancer and their caregivers, BioDerm found that opera fans were more than 40% more likely than non-opera fans to report that their side effects after prostate cancer treatment were worse or much worse than expected. By comparison, fans of classical music, country, pop and rap did not display any correlation with side effects. And blues music fans were only 20% more likely to report worse side effects.

Its way too soon to establish a definitive link, says statistician and VP of Technology, Steve Babb. But its definitely an interesting correlation. Im not sure Ill be putting on any Puccini anytime soon, just in case!

There are more than 2.5 million men in the US whove been diagnosed prostate cancer during their lifetimes. According to the American Cancer Society more than 200,000 men are diagnosed and nearly 30,000 men die of prostate cancer every year.

For survivors, the most common complications of prostate cancer treatment are erectile dysfunction and urinary incontinence. According to the same survey, 46% of prostate cancer survivors reported dealing with ongoing urinary incontinence. This number is much higher than you see in physician reported studies which typically list a 5-8% incontinence rate.

The root of this inconsistency is unknown, says Babb. Based on our clients experiences, we believe that it may be that physicians and patients define incontinence differently and that can vastly change the numbers. Well have to do a follow up evaluation to find out for sure.

Its was a very surprising connection to us. It definitely wasnt what we went in looking for, said BioDerm CEO, Gary Damkoehler. We started this because we talk to hundreds of prostate cancer survivors on a monthly basis and we wanted to know what connected them. For us, its all about knowing who our clients are and how we can best reach them. So we looked for any connection that can help our patients and healthcare professionals better understand life after prostate cancer.

BioDerm has been working with incontinence patients for nearly ten years, trying to help them find a better way to manage this serious condition. BioDerm is the manufacturer of Mens Liberty, a male external collection device designed especially for community dwelling men who want to be active throughout their golden years.

^^The Anthology of Booty is a DJ crew in Washington DC seeking to create unique and welcoming social spaces. Our crew is a mix of people from many different backgrounds, and we are painfully aware of how social spaces like dances, clubs, and bars have been used to keep people apart and maintain social dynamics such as racism, misogyny, and homophobia. We are committed to resisting these negative forces by creating spaces for dancing, community-building, kickin’ it, and art with an emphasis on inclusion and respect. ^^

++This is a benefit towards the Wonderbox space itself, which hopefully can support rad community oriented projects like ours in the coming year.++

** In order for us to work with the neighborhood and ensure the longevity of the party, please be aware that a police car will be present in the alley for most of the night. On one hand this is not much different than any of our neighborhoods, but we mention it because we have strong feelings about the cops like you may.**
