NCMA’s Santa Rosa Urology and Dr. Michael Lazar provide diagnostics, treatment and management of a full spectrum of urologic health conditions including bladder stones. (PRWEB) June 19, 2014 Bladder stones are exactly what they sound like; hard stone-like pieces of concentrated urine which have crystallized and clumped together. Interestingly enough, in developing nations, bladder stones are fairly common in children – and sadly, as a result of dehydration, infection and a low-protein...

Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI), the involuntary loss of urine with cough or sneeze or any increase in intra-abdominal pressure, is a condition that many women deal with after childbirth and as they become older. When pelvic floor exercises fail to improve the problem, the surgical specialists at Women’s Excellence can perform a minimally invasive sub-urethral sling procedure to help stop the leakage of urine. Berkley, Michigan (PRWEB) November 20, 2013 Stress Urinary Incontinence...

The Law Of Urination - All Mammals Pee The Same

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online All mammals, regardless of the size of their bladders, take approximately 21 seconds to urinate, researchers from Georgia Tech have discovered – and they have video evidence to back up their claims. According to Ron Dicker of The Huffington Post, the investigators observed mammals at Zoo Atlanta in Georgia, and found that species, bladder size, and even gender had little to no impact on the time it took these creatures to...

Researchers at the Institute for Regenerative Medicine at Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center and colleagues reported today on a new advance in tissue engineering. The team is the first in the world to use patients' own cells to build tailor-made urinary tubes and successfully replace damaged tissue. In an article published Online First by The Lancet, the research team reports replacing damaged segments of urinary tubes (urethras) in five boys. Tests to measure urine flow and tube...

According to Dr. Joel Gelman, an internationally recognized expert in urethral stricture disease and Director of the Center for Reconstructive Urology at UC, Irvine Medical Center, urethral strictures can now be cured with up to a 98+% success rate with urethral reconstruction, including novel techniques recently reported at the 2010 American Urological Association Western Section Meeting. However, Dr. Gelman noted that men with urethral strictures continue to be advised to have their...

Cystoscopy is a medical procedure to explore the bladder with a cytoscope, a small camera with magnification. The bladder is accessed by the cytoscope through the urethra. This procedure is used as a diagnostic tool for the medical provider. Reasons for Procedure There are several complaints from patients that would make this procedure a consideration of the medical provider. Patients that present with chronic urinary tract infections, decrease in bladder control, abnormal urine...

tesla
  • The unit of magnetic flux density in the International System of Units, equal to the magnitude of the magnetic field vector necessary to produce a force of one newton on a charge of one coulomb moving perpendicular to the direction of the magnetic field vector with a velocity of one meter per second. It is equivalent to one weber per square meter.
This word is named for Nikola Tesla, the inventor, engineer, and futurist.
