I, A., I. Fakhr, A. Mostafa, and M. Sherbeny, "P009 Neobladder long term follow up", European Urology Supplements, vol. 12, no. 6: Elsevier, pp. 134, 2013. Abstract

Purpose: This study was conducted to test the hypothesis that improvement of cervical lordosis in CSR, using 3-point bending traction, will improve the clinical features in a sample population of patients suffering from Cervical Spondylotic Radiculopathy( CSR )with defined cervical hypo-lordosis.
Relevance: This study assists in the understanding of the association between sagittal curve alignment and lasting improved function providing physiotherapists with a guidelines for proper rehabilitation of CSR.
Participants: Thirty patients with lower CSR and with a cervical hypo-lordosis were included in the study. The patients were assigned randomly into two groups of equal number, study and control groups.
Methods: Both groups received stretching exercises and infrared radiation; additionally the study group received 3 point bending cervical traction. Treatments were applied 3 x per week for 10 weeks after which a 12 week follow up was performed. The peak to peak amplitude of dermatomal somatosensory evoked potentials (DSSEPS), absolute rotation angle (ARA C2-C7), cervical flexion-extension kinematics analysis, and visual analogue scale (VAS) were measured for all patients at three intervals (initial, after 10 weeks of treatment, and at follow up of 3 months).
Analysis: The outcome measure of ARA, pain, peak to peak DSSEPS, and kinematics analysis of cervical spine were measured using repeated measures one-way ANOVA to compare measurements made at three intervals.
Results: In the study group, an increase in cervical lordosis (ARA C2-C7) was found (p< 0.0001, F=49.81) and maintained at follow up. No statistically significant improvement in lordosis was found for the control group. A Significant reduction in VAS for study group after 10 weeks of treatment and at 12 weeks follow up was found. In contrast, there was a less significant decrease in post treatment VAS and the follow up measures revealed a significant increase in the VAS score towards initial baseline values. An inverse linear correlation between increased lordosis and VAS was found (r=-.49; p=0.0059) for both groups initially and maintained in the study group post treatment (r=-.6; p=0.0138). At 10-week follow up, we found statistically significant improvements in DSSEPS for both groups (one way ANNOV, p< 0.0001). However, at 12 week post treatment follow up, only the study group showed statistically significant improvement compared to initial (p < 0.006) whereas the control group values returned to baseline measurement (p<0.153). We identified a linear correlation between initial DSSEPs and ARA for both groups (r=.65; p<0.0001), where as this relationship was only maintained in the study group at final follow-up (r=.55; p=0.033).
Conclusions: Improved lordosis in the study group was associated with significant improvements in nerve root function, VAS rating, and translational and rotational motions of the lower cervical spine. Only in the study group were the results maintained at long-term follow up.
Implications: Appropriate physical rehabilitation for CSR should include cervical sagittal curve correction, as it is may to lead greater and longer lasting improved function.

IMRT technique was clearly able to improve conformity index and homogeneity index. Also, it was able to significantly decrease the dose to most of the risk structures. Yet the cochlear doses did not differ significantly, and it was within the organ's tolerance in all plans.

Background Despite the use of alfacalcidol in the management of corticosteroid-induced osteoporosis, it has never been considered an adjunct treatment for asthma management. It can target vitamin D deficiency, a possible risk factor for asthma, and, hence, improve pulmonary function of patients with asthma. Objective To explore the effect of alfacalcidol administration on pulmonary function and study the pattern of vitamin D deficiency in adults with asthma in Egypt. Methods Serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D was measured in 115 adults: 33 healthy subjects and 82 patients with asthma. Then, patients with asthma were randomized to receive standard asthma treatment only (n = 39) or receive it in addition to 1 μg of alfacalcidol daily for 4 months (n = 43). Randomization was stratified by the stage of asthma severity. Spirometry and measurement of 25-hydroxyvitamin were performed at baseline and end of follow-up. Results Vitamin D deficiency was more common in patients with asthma (57.3%) than in healthy subjects (21.2%; P <.001). In patients with asthma, alfacalcidol significantly improved forced expiratory volume in the first second and forced vital capacity (P <.001 for the 2 tests). Moreover, more patients in the intervention arm showed improvement in asthma severity stage (P =.04). A nonsignificant difference was observed in improvement of forced expiratory volume in the first second between patients with vitamin D deficiency and those without deficiency in the intervention group (P >.05). Conclusion Alfacalcidol supplementation improved the pulmonary function and severity stage of adult patients with asthma regardless of deficiency.
