INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES: The concept of restoring bladder and bowel function inspina bifida by the creation of a skin-CNS-bladder reflex arc by an intradural lumbar to sacral motor root microanastomosis was introduced by Xiao. We report our three-year experience with the novel procedure.
METHODS: Nine patients (3 males, 6 females) with median age of 8 (range 6 to 37) years enrolled in this institutional review board approved protocol. After extensive preoperative evaluation, lumbar to sacral nerve rerouting was performed using intraoperative neurophysiological monitoring. Postoperative evaluation included follow-up questionnaires,urodynamic testing (UDT), voiding diaries, renal function studies and bowel assessment.
RESULTS: Of the 9 patients, 5 patients had defect closure within 24 hours of birth, 3 had intrauterine closure and 1 had no prior surgery. Mean operative time was 183 (range 127-278) minutes. No intraoperative complications occurred. One patient developed permanent foot drop and 8 had transient lower extremity weakness. By 12 months, 7 of 9 had a documented cutaneous to bladder reflex. At 3 years, 2 patients did not return for follow-up and were considered non-responders. Seven patients returned for 36-month evaluation. On UDT, maximum cystometric capacity improved from mean 210 cc to 293 cc. At baseline 4/7 had neurogenic detrusor overactivity (NDO); at 36 months 1/7 had NDO. Median compliance improved from 12.2 ml/H20 to 28.4 ml/H2O and 3 with a baseline compliance of less than 10 had normalization (7 to 34.3, 9.4 to 21.2, and 8.3 to 28.4). At baseline, 2/7 were able to void with an average void of 23 cc. At 36 months, 6/7 no longer required catheterization and 6/7 reported mean voided volume of 156cc on voiding diaries. Uroflow demonstrated a mean voided volume of 248 cc with a 93 cc post void residual and a voiding efficiency of 73%. All 6 patients were voiding > 59% of their bladder capacity. 5 of 7 require some valsalva to void. 6/7 subjects had persistent stress incontinence with 1 subject dry, 3 with occasional leak, 3 frequent leaks. At baseline, 3/7 considered their bowels normal and 1/7 were continent of stool. At 36-months 6/7 considered bowels normal and 4/7 continent of stool. Antimuscarinics were stopped in all subjects except the 1 with persistent NDO. Renal ultrasounds and serum creatinines remained stable. No long-term complications were identified and 6/7 would undergo the procedure again.
Lumbar to sacral nerve rerouting can improve bladder and bowel function in patients withneurogenic bladder associated with spina bifida.
科學與中國論壇 成立 記者李大明／聖地牙哥報導 March 10, 2015, 6:00 am .發起人王瑋說，他與多位志同道合的朋友原擬成立「方舟子書友會」，後經全體理事討論，將名稱確定為「科學與中國論壇」。眾人將這個團體定性為「非正式、非營利俱樂部」，今後將以聖地牙哥北部市區的「火星人活動中心」為聚會地點，基本上每月安排一場演講或研討會…..第一場活動訂於3月14日（星期六）下午舉行，內容是「方舟子談環保」；第二場活動也將由方舟子主講，內容與轉基因有關，時間暫定為4月中旬
柴静是说整个洛杉矶都市地区，除了洛杉矶市，洛杉矶县，还包括了西边，东边，南边三个县的部分地区，现在人口可能还超出一千七百万 The Greater Los Angeles Area is the second-largest urban region in the United States, Wikipedia Population: 16.37 million (2000) 方先生太喜欢吹毛求疵了。休息一下好吗
方舟子年纪轻没听过“After Clark Kerr came not the millennium, but ronald reagan”.Berkeley越南暴动时Kerr是校长，里根是州长。乐观社会学从那时开始没落。里根做完总统后苏联垮台，那时西方一片乐观认为资本主义优越全球化必胜，福山还说历史终结。所以我现在说 “After Fukuyama came not the end of history, but Donald Trump”

KGB在莫斯科大旅馆装了相机是肯定的.川普找妓女也不稀奇.有没有录下来,有没有被勒索,就不知道了.如果他被 KGB 勒索做了他们的间谍,那才是了不起的秘密.方舟子说他不是同性恋,如果是也不丢人没什么了不得.但是如果因此被勒索做了美国间谍,所以回国找不到工作,那就有新闻价值了@新语丝之光001BBC驻华盛顿记者详细介绍川普“金色淋浴”门的四个消息来源，前英国特工、东欧某国情报机构、中情局特工，最终都是他们在俄国情报机构的线人
