The relationship between incontinence, breathing... [Clin J Pain. 2014] - PubMed - NCBI

AbstractOBJECTIVES:

Recent studies suggest a relationship between incontinence, respiratory disorders, gastrointestinal (GI) symptoms, and back pain (BP). However, causality is difficult to infer. This longitudinal study aimed to determine whether the presence or development of one disorder increases risk for the development of another.

METHODS:

Women from the Australian Longitudinal Study on Women's Health were divided into subgroups; those with no BP (n=7259), no incontinence (n=18,480), no breathing problems (including allergy) (n=15,096), and no GI symptoms (n=17,623). Each subgroup was analyzed to determine the relationship between the development of the absent condition and the presence or development of the other conditions. Factors with a previously identified relationship with BP were included in analysis.

RESULTS:

Women with pre-existing and/or newly developed incontinence (prevalence ratios [PR]: 1.26 to 2.12) and breathing problems (PR: 1.38 to 2.11) had an increased risk for the development of BP, and women with pre-existing and newly developed BP were more likely to develop incontinence and breathing problems (PR: 1.18 to 2.44 and 1.53 to 2.62, respectively). The presence of GI symptoms was also identified as a risk factor for the development of these conditions.

DISCUSSION:

This study provides evidence of a relationship between BP, incontinence, respiratory problems, and GI symptoms in which the presence of one symptom is associated with the development of another. This suggests that common factors may contribute to the development of symptoms across this range of conditions.

Postural response of the pelvic floor and a... [Neurourol Urodyn. 2007] - PubMed - NCBI

CONCLUSIONS:

These data suggest that women with incontinence have increased PF and abdominal muscle activity associated with posturalperturbations. This finding challenges the clinical assumption that incontinence is associated with reduced PF muscle activity, and suggests that training control and coordination of abdominal muscle activity may be important in treatment of this condition. The contrasting effects of increased bladder volume on PF and abdominal muscle EMG are likely to present further challenges to the maintenance of continence.

Mechanisms of oxysterol-induced disease: insights from the biliary system

Oxysterols are oxidized species of cholesterol that are derived from exogenous (e.g. dietary) and endogenous (in vivo) sources. Oxysterols play critical roles in normal physiologic functions as well as in pathophysiologic processes in a variety of organ systems. This review provides an overview of oxysterol biology from the vantage point of the biliary system. Several oxysterols have been identified in human bile in the context of biliary tract infection and inflammation. This finding has led to investigations regarding the potential pathophysiologic significance of biliary oxysterols in diseases affecting the biliary system, with an emphasis on cholangiocarcinoma. Emerging evidence implicates specific oxysterols in the development and progression of this malignancy. This review will summarize the literature on oxysterols in the biliary system and discuss how the accumulated evidence contributes to a hypothesis describing the molecular basis of cholangiocarcinogenesis.
