Please read this issue of Urological Science and return the postage-paid reply slip with your answers by August, 2020. A score of 80% or better will earn two CME credits. Questions/answers:
1. What statement considering the predictor of undiscovered urolithiasis in patients with acute urinary tract infection (UTI) symptoms is correct?
- Both red blood cells (RBCs) and white blood cells (WBCs) were not predictors of urolithiasis.
- In patients presenting with acute UTI symptoms, a lower RBC median and a higher WBC median in urinalysisare correlated with a higher probability to have urolithiasis.
- In patients with flank pain or hydronephrosis, a urine WBC median of <7.75 per HPF has a sensitivity of 73% for predicting urolithiasis on a CT scan
- In patients with flank pain or hydronephrosis, a urine WBC median of >7.75 per HPF has a sensitivity of 73% for predicting urolithiasis on a CT scan
- All statements are incorrect.
Urol Sci 2020:31(3):115-121.
2. What statement considering the medical treatment for overactive bladder (OAB) is incorrect?
- Newer antimuscarinic drugs focus on more selective muscarinic receptors with less side effects.
- ß3AR agonists have little effects on voiding contraction caused by muscarinic receptor, and it can increase bladder capacity without change in residual volume.
- In many studies, the combination therapy with antimuscarinic agent and ß3AR agonist demonstrated increased efficacy and acceptable tolerability.
- Several trials had investigated the efficacy and safety of PDE5I and pregabalin for OAB treatment, but further study is needed.
- All statements are incorrect.

3. Compared to theα- blocker monotherapy for BPH-LUTS, what statement considering the combination therapy withα- blocker and Phosphodiesterase 5 inhibitors (PDE5is) is incorrect?
- Better IPSS storage subscore.
- Better Qmax.
- Better IPSS QOL score.
- Decrease the risk of adverse events.
- Better erectile function.
Urol Sci 2020:31(3):99-107.
4. According to the study by ChenChe Lee et al., what statement about the Impact of Pseudoephedrine and Antihistamine on Lower Urinary Tract Symptoms (LUTS) is correct?
- Both pseudoephedrine and antihistamine have major effects on lower urinary tract function in the general male population.
- Pseudoephedrine worsened IPSS total score in elderly men.
- Antihistamines worsened IPSS storage subscore in younger men.
- Antihistamines worsened IPSS voiding subscore in elderly men.
- In selfunaware voiding dysfunction male with IPSS total score >7, Antihistamines may cause more post-void residual urine amount.
Urol Sci 2020:31(3):108-113.
5. What statement considering the clinical profile of renal trauma in India is incorrect?
- Rib fracture was the most common associated injury.
- Most patient had unilateral renal injury, not bilateral renal injury.
- Length of hospital stay was increasing with the severity of renal injury from Grade I to Grade V.
- Grade of renal injury and type of treatment significantly affected the variations in the length of hospital stay.
- All statement are correct.
