Simultaneous double contrast cystography and modified polycystography in the evaluation of bladder carcinoma

International Urology and Nephrology

Accurate knowledge about the morphology and degree of infiltration of a bladder tumor is an essential prerequisite to correctly plan, and forecast the results of, the treatment of these tumors. Among the radiological investigations double contrast cystography is superior to excretory cystogram or conventional cystogram in delineating the morphology of bladder tumors. Polycystography demonstrates, radiologically, the degree of infiltration of a bladder tumor. By simultaneously performing these procedures, the information necessary for planning the treatment is obtained in a single sitting, with one catheterization. This procedure was performed in 15 patients, in good correlation with other parameters such as cystoscopy, bimanual examination under general anesthesia and biopsy.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Alzheimer's Disease: MS4A

Variants within the membrane-spanning 4-domains subfamily A (MS4A) gene cluster have recently been implicated in Alzheimer's disease in genome-wide association studies. Here is the latest research on Alzheimer's disease and MS4A.

Pediculosis pubis

Pediculosis pubis is a disease caused by a parasitic insect known as Pthirus pubis, which infests human pubic hair, as well as other areas with hair including eye lashes. Here is the latest research.

Genetic Screens in iPSC-derived Brain Cells

Genetic screening is a critical tool that can be employed to define and understand gene function and interaction. This feed focuses on genetic screens conducted using induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC)-derived brain cells. It also follows CRISPR-Cas9 approaches to generating genetic mutants as a means of understanding the effect of genetics on phenotype.
