2008 IEEE International Symposium on IT in Medicine and Education, 2008

Purpose of this research is to present realistic surface models of male urogenital organs and neighboring structures, made more automatically by using new computer technique. For the purpose, outlining and automatic interpolation was performed on Combustion; surface reconstruction following volume reconstruction was done on 3D-Doctor; the surface models were assembled in their proper positions and refined on Maya; a surface ...

Eighth World Congress on the Management of eBusiness (WCMeB 2007), 2007

Urinary incontinence affects from 3% to 55% of the population, depending on the definition of incontinence used and the age range studied. The prevalence is highest among older woman (17%-55%) and incontinence negatively impacts their quality of life. Holroyd-Leduc and Straus (2004) recommend that physicians understand the causes and management options available to their female patients with urinary incontinence. The ...

IEEE Journal on Emerging and Selected Topics in Circuits and Systems, 2011

We investigate the hypothesis that intrafascicular stimulation of the pudendal nerve (PN) can be used to selectively activate the detrusor bladder muscle and the external urethral sphincter (EUS). Nine anesthetized male canines were used in this study. Muscle activations were measured via bladder catheter pressure transducers and EUS electromyography (EMG) wires. The PNs were exposed via dissection of the ischioanal ...

• Purpose of this research is to present realistic surface models of male urogenital organs and neighboring structures, made more automatically by using new computer technique. For the purpose, outlining and automatic interpolation was performed on Combustion; surface reconstruction following volume reconstruction was done on 3D-Doctor; the surface models were assembled in their proper positions and refined on Maya; a surface model was coated by real surface texture of the structure acquired from volume model on specially programmed software and Maya. The surface models, prepared in this research, are expected to contribute to medical simulation such as interactive virtual operation. The improved technique to build the surface models, developed in this research, is expected to enable other researchers to easily make their own surface models from other serial images.

• Urinary incontinence affects from 3% to 55% of the population, depending on the definition of incontinence used and the age range studied. The prevalence is highest among older woman (17%-55%) and incontinence negatively impacts their quality of life. Holroyd-Leduc and Straus (2004) recommend that physicians understand the causes and management options available to their female patients with urinary incontinence. The objective was to develop an open source Web-based clinical questionnaire tool that health care providers can use to manage urinary incontinence. The health care providers who would be using the tool were initially consulted for their requirements. Based on the users' requirements the tool functions must deliver, collect, and provide questionnaire analysis. The clinical tool questionnaire was required to provide questionnaire design functionality along with the ability to collect demographic information and deliver validated urinary incontinence questionnaires, incontinence impact questionnaire-7 and the urogenital distress inventory-6. To develop the Web-based prototype tool an open-source software questionnaire system entitled PHPSurveyor was used and custom developed administration and statistical functions were integrated into the clinical tool.

• We investigate the hypothesis that intrafascicular stimulation of the pudendal nerve (PN) can be used to selectively activate the detrusor bladder muscle and the external urethral sphincter (EUS). Nine anesthetized male canines were used in this study. Muscle activations were measured via bladder catheter pressure transducers and EUS electromyography (EMG) wires. The PNs were exposed via dissection of the ischioanal fossa and implanted with Utah Slanted Electrode Arrays (USEAs). USEAs consist of 100, 0.5–1.5 mm long microelectrodes that project out from a 4$\,\times\,$ 4 mm substrate. Intrafascicular stimulation was delivered via individual USEA microelectrodes in order to map the ability of each electrode to selectively or nonselectively evoke detrusor and/or EUS contractions. We were able to selectively activate the detrusor using 33 Hz stimulation of PN axons with an average of $4.57 \pm 3.82$ (${\rm mean }\pm {\rm sd}$) USEA electrodes per animal tested. Electrically-evoked and distention-evoked bladder contractions had similar kinetics. Sustained bladder contractions were evoked via 60 s of intrafascicular stimulation. The EUS was activated using 33 Hz stimulation via an average of $26.14 \pm 19.45$ electrodes per animal tested. High frequency ($> {2}~{\rm kHz}$) stimulation delivered via EUS selective electrodes produced nonselective block of PN axons. Examples of how this selective axonal access could be used to restore continence and activate micturition were demonstrated in two animals. We report herein the first study demonstrating selective detrusor and EUS activation via microelectrodes implanted intrafascicularly in the PN. Such selective activation enables new therapeutic possibilities for controlling the muscles of micturition.

• Natural language processing (NLP) is being applied for several information extraction tasks in the biomedical domain. The unique nature of clinical information requires the need for developing an NLP system designed specifically for the clinical domain. We describe a method to identify semantically coherent phrases within clinical reports. This is an important step towards full syntactic parsing within a clinical NLP system. We use this semantic phrase chunker to identify anatomical phrases within radiology reports related to the genitourinary domain. A discriminative classifier based on support vector machines was used to classify words into one of five phrase classification categories. Training of the classifier was performed using 1000 hand-tagged sentences from a corpus of genitourinary radiology reports. Features used by the classifier include n-grams, syntactic tags and semantic labels. Evaluation was conducted on a blind test set of 250 sentences from the same domain. The system achieved overall performance scores of 0.87 (precision), 0.91 (recall) and 0.89 (balanced f-score). Anatomical phrase extraction can be rapidly and accurately accomplished

• To study the antibiotic susceptibility of eleven vaginal probiotic lactobacilli, the disc diffusion method in LAPTg agars was performed. The results had shown that all strains were resistance to tobramycin, lomefloxacin, nalidixic scid, ofloxacin, enoxacin, ciprofloxacin, norfloxacin and fleroxacin. Thereof eight were resistance to sparfloxacin, six were resistance to gentamicin and netilmicin. All the lactobacilli were sensitive to -lactamade inhibitors and macrolides whereas resistant to tinidazole. Therefore, the susceptibility to some antibiotics presented similar. On the other hand, the sensitivity to other antibiotics depended on strains. Our results indicated that resistant strains of lactobacilli against tinidazole could be combinated with tinidazole for the restoration of the normal urogenital flora and curing of urinary tract infections or bacterial vaginosis.
