Long-term Outcomes After Flap Reconstruction in Pediatric Pressure Ulcers
Conclusions Flap reconstruction can be beneficial in the management of pediatric pressure ulcers. Although high rates of long-term success with this intervention have been reported in children, we found rates of ulcer recurrence similar to that seen in adults. Poor compliance with nonoperative care and failure to modify the biopsychosocial perpetuators of pressure ulcers will likely eventuate in postoperative recurrence. Despite the many comorbidities observed in our patient sample, compliance was the best indicator of long-term skin integrity and flap success.

AbstractPurposeTo evaluate the effectiveness of vaginal Er:YAG laser as treatment in patients with mild or moderate stress urinary incontinence.MethodsThe study was a prospective, non-randomised, single center study of 33 women treated with two Er:YAG laser applications on an interval of four weeks. Follow-up evaluations were performed 4 and 8 weeks and 6 months after the first vaginal Er:YAG laser application (4 weeks and 5 months after the second vaginal Er:YAG laser application, respectively). The subjective outcomes were assessed using the International Consultation of Incontinence Modular Questionnaire Short Form (ICI...
