The Importance of Routine Biochemical Tests in the Diagnosis of Leptospirosis

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2016.111
Synopsis: 
In this study was investigated the place of routinely used biochemical tests in the diagnosis of leptospirosis. Some parameters amenable to routine use are able to differentiate the disease from other cases with similar clinical and laboratory findings.

Incidence and Prediction of Catheter-related Bladder Discomfort after Transurethral Bladder Tumour Resection

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.601
Synopsis: 
This study showed that the incidence of catheter-related bladder discomfort (CRBD) was 82.3% at day 1 in patients undergoing transurethral bladder tumour resection (TURB) and reduced to 23.2% at day 3. Males, aged < 65 years, were identified as independent predictors of moderate or severe CRBD.

ABSTRACT

Objective: Catheter-related bladder discomfort (CRBD) have suggested a large inter- and intro-individual variation in patients after transurethral bladder tumor resection (TURB), emphasizing the need for valid predictors and improved treatment. We performed a prospective observational study to determine the incidence and predictors of early postoperative CRBD in patients undergoing TURB.
