- SpheroidAnalyseR—an online platform for analyzing data from 3D spheroids or organoids grown in 96-well plates November 23, 2022Spheroids and organoids are increasingly popular three-dimensional (3D) cell culture models. Spheroid models are more physiologically relevant to a tumor compared to two-dimensional (2D) cultures and organoids are a simplified version of an organ with similar composition. Spheroids are often only formed from a single cell type which does not represent the situation in vivo. […]Rhiannon Barrow, Joseph N.

- Multiplexed tape-stabilized cryohistology of mineralized large animal specimens November 17, 2022Tape-stabilized cryohistology is a powerful histological method to reinforce tissue samples during and after sectioning, enhancing the overall image quality. This technique has widely been applied to section mineralized small animal (i.e., mice, rat, rabbit) specimens, but has only been sparsely implemented for large animal samples that have a greater tendency to tear due to […]Hannah M.

- Nerve-spring technique could achieve a functional trifecta outcome of robotic intracorporeal studer’s orthotopic neobladder in the male November 9, 2022Objectives: To summarize some key steps of functional improvement in robotic intracorporeal studer’s orthotopic neobladder (RISON) of males, especially for nerve-spring technique. We also presented the result of 1-year follow-up aimed to illustrate its functional trifecta outcomes.Methods: Robotic radical cystectomy with intracorporeal studer’s orthotopic neobladder was performed on 33 male patients by the same surgeon […]Qiang Cheng, Liangyou Gu, Wenzheng Chen, Xupeng Zhao, Xin Ma, Xiao Chang, Qing Ai, Hongzhao Li
- Treatment of stress urinary incontinence with a percutaneously implantable wireless microstimulator device (NuStim®) plus pelvic floor muscle exercises: a pilot study September 14, 2022Objectives: To evaluate the utility and safety of pelvic floor muscle exercises in combination with a wireless percutaneously implantable microstimulator device (NuStim®) for the treatment of stress urinary incontinence.Methods: In this prospective self-controlled pilot trial, three patients aged 35‒75 years with incontinence symptoms were treated by pelvic floor muscle exercises plus implantation of NuStim® from […]Fan Zhang, Limin Liao
- Safety and Effectiveness of Nustim System Implantation in Dogs September 14, 2022Objectives: To verify the safety and effectiveness of a novel micro-implantable wireless nerve stimulation device in healthy adult beagles and evaluate the feasibility of using the device in clinical practice. Methods: The stimulator was experimentally implanted into the quadriceps femoris of three adult beagles. The animals were subjected to training on daily basis for 14 […]Xing Li, Han Deng, Zhaoxia Wang, Hao Li, Limin Liao
- Chinese botulinum toxin A for the treatment of lower urinary tract dysfunction: It works just as well September 14, 2022The botulinum neurotoxin type A (BoNT/A) is a neurotoxin produced by Clostridium botulinum. It causes botulism and represents the most powerful natural poison. In urological practice, the indications for BoNT/A therapy include neurogenic detrusor overactivity (NDO), idiopathic overactive bladder (OAB) or idiopathic detrusor overactivity (IDO), detrusor-sphincter dyssynergia (DSD), interstitial cystitis/bladder pain syndrome (IC/BPS), urinary tract […]Fan Zhang, Qinggang Liu, Limin Liao, Xiaojuan Li, Xueping Zhang
