Abstract

Aims: to investigate hematospermia & study its clinical significance. Patients & methods: a prospective study was carried out on 31 patients with hematospermia at Al-Yermouk Teaching Hospital between January 2007 & January 2009. All patients were clinically assessed & subjected to urinalysis & seminal fluid analysis. Other investigations were done according to individual cases. More than 90% 0f the patients had no prior genitourinary symptoms or significant factors in their history. Results: The etiology of hematospermia was determined & found to be of inflammatory and infective origin in most men especially the young. In 3 of the 31 patients studied, hematuria occurred with hematospermia & was associated with significant lower urinary tract abnormalities such as bladder tumor, however in none of these a relationship appeared between hematospermia & the disease process. Conclusions: From this study we can conclude that hematospermia is of no importance, does not progress, tend to disappear in the course of time & rarely is associated with any significant urologic pathology.

Abstract

Periodontitis is a chronic inflammation that effect the tissue that surround and support theteeth, and this is prevalent cause of teeth loss in adults while prostatitis is a comparativelycommon issue affecting about 12 percent of men, and it’s the most common prostate-relatedhealth issue in men under age fifty. Researches showed that the heart diseases spread in thepersons that have periodontitis about 25-50% higher than healthy persons. Recent studieshave connected periodontal disease with plenty of systemic health risks, including heartdisease and prostatitis but their results were varied. The recent study aimed to explore thelinking of gum diseases with heart diseases and prostate inflammations. In total, 150 serumsamples of four age groups of participants distributed as 100 (66.7%) samples of patients withperiodontitis and other 50 (33.3%) samples of control, All patients were attending to Ibn alBitar hospital, teaching laboratories – Medical city and Specialized Dental Center AL-Alwiyaand the diagnosis of all cases based up on patients medical history that evaluated by qualifiedphysicians and some other laboratory investigations. As (38.0%) patients with heart diseaseshistory and (58.6%) patients with prostatitis. Sample were analyzed for Triglycerides, Prostatespecific antigen (PSA) and CRP levels. The abnormal Triglycerides level estimated by(37.3%), while the elevated level of (PSA) was determined by (40.0%). Furthermore, theprevalence of CRP seropositivity in individuals increased by (43.3%). The incidence ofperiodontal disease (PD) was paralleled with the positivity of tested biochemical markers ofcardiovascular disease (CVD) history and prostatitis respectively with high significantdifferences (P= 0.000). Finally, there is significant connection of PD with CVD and prostatitis,but further studies are needed, and the outcomes of this study have limitations, also thecurrent finding encourages to review a large sample size with different age groups in order toclarify this issue.

Abstract

Background:The treatment of chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CP/CPPS) can be a frustrating challenge to physicians and many drugs had been used with variable results.Objective:To evaluate the safety and the efficacy of adding 5 mg tadalafil for patients with CP/CPPS with the conventional treatment.Methods:Thirty five patients received tamsulosin 0.4 mg capsule once daily, levofloxacin 500mg tablet once daily and indomethacin rectal suppository 100 mg once daily served as control group. Another 35 patients received the alpha blocker, levofloxacin and NSAID as above with tadalafil 5 mg once daily for 1 month period comprised tadalafil group. The NIH Chronic Prostatitis Symptom Index (NIH-CPSI) assessment was completed by each patient at baseline and 4 weeks after the drug therapy to assess the response to treatment. We consider in our study the chronic prostatitis/CPPS or category IIIa or b according to NIH classification system.Results:No significant difference in mean age and baseline score in between groups was found. After one month of starting treatment, it had been found that NIH-CPSI/pain, urinary and quality of life domains were significantly changed from (12.8±1.44, 5.9±1.77 and 8.8±1.82) at baseline to (9.6±1.04, 3.55±0.99 and 3.88±1.31) respectively in group A. In group B also there was a significant reduction in the NIH-CPSI among patients in this group; the baseline NIH-CPSI/pain, urinary and quality of life domains were (13.4±1.66, 5.8±1.85 and 9.3±1.92) and changed to (6.28±0.90, 2.65±0.86 and 2.69±1.43) respectively after treatment. The total NIH-CPSI was 27.5±4.78 and changed to 17.03±3.91 after treatmentin group A and 28.5±4.49 changed to11.62±3.59 in group B. Conclusion:The use of tadalafil in patients of CP/CPPS with conventional treatment for 1 month was safe and has high efficacy in reducing the symptoms for the patients and improving the quality of life.Keywords:Tadalafil, chronic prostatitis, chronic pelvic pain syndrome

Abstract

Urtica dioica leaves were powdered and extracted with methanol 70 %. 17 beta-estradiol was used to induce prostatitis. Fifty mice were divided into five groups, The first control group (T1) , The second induction group (T2) was treated by distilled water, the third induction group (T3)was treated with crude extract of Urtica dioica leaves 300mg/kg B.W, the fourth induction group (T4) was treated with aspirin 50mg/kg B.W, the fifth induction group (T5)was treated with crude extract of Urtica dioica leaves 150mg/kg B.W and aspirin 25mg/kg B.W. Superoxide dismutase (SOD) and glutathione peroxidase (GPx) for induction groups treated with 17 beta-estradiol showed significant decrease as compared with (T1), while the T3,T4 and T5 showed no significant difference as compared with T1. The result of testosterone hormone of (T3) showed significant increase as compared with (T1) and other groups. The results of body and prostate weight for T3,T4 and T5 revealed no significant difference as compared with T1. The fertility index of (T3) was increased as compared with T1 while the T4 was decreased as compared with T1. The histopathological changes after induction of prostatitis revealed hyperplasia of the prostatic glands and infiltration of inflammatory cells, while the T3 revealed the return of the acini to normal shape, and hydropic degeneration in the epithelium of prostatic glands disappeared. The T4 showed decreased hydropic degeneration, few inflammatory cell and epithelial hyperplasia, while the T5 was characterized by few inflammatory cell infiltration and the acini showed very decreased hydropic degeneration. In this study we concluded that the alcoholic Urtica dioica extract could markedly treat proststitis by its anti-inflammatory effect with reduce side effect of aspirin such as infertility.
