The objective of this study was to evaluate the long-term anatomical and functional efficacy, but also the safety of tension-free vaginal mesh in cystocele repair. METHODS: This retrospective and monocentric study included 90 women who underwent a prolapse repair between June 2006 and November 2008. A light-weight polypropylene vaginal mesh (22g/m2, Novasilk COLOPLAST®) was used without any fixation. Females were followed at 1 month, 1 year, 3 years and 6 years. Only long-term results are presented in this study. The anatomical result was assessed by the POP-Q classification and the functional results by standardiz...

This study aimed to synthesize the findings of these individual studies across multiple subspecialties of orthopedic surgery to evaluate the potential discrepancy between how much patients believe orthopedic surgeons are reimbursed and the actual reimbursement rate. We performed a systematic review following the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses (PRISMA) guidelines to identify studies that report findings of patient perceptions of orthopedic surgeon reimbursement for various procedures. Searches were conducted using MEDLINE through PubMed, Embase, and Scopus. Summary estimates of reimbursem...
