CONCLUSIONS LIFT-plug procedure for the treatment of trans-sphincteric fistulas is a simple procedure with a high healing rate, minimal invasiveness, quick healing, and without disturbance to anal function. LIFT-plug is an ideal procedure for trans-sphincteric fistula. PMID: 30783076 [PubMed - in process]
Sacral neuromodulation has been used for urinary voiding dysfunction and chronic fecal incontinence. The primary goal of this study is to investigate the incidence and predictors of explantation of sacral neuromodulator at an Urban Medical Center.
The goal of this study was to assess long-term patient reported outcomes following the trans-obturator post-anal sling (TOPAS) procedure for the treatment of fecal incontinence.
The goal of this study is to assess long term outcomes for trans-obturator post-anal sling (TOPAS) procedure for the treatment of fecal incontinence. The TOPAS is percutaneous procedure whereby a synthetic polypropylene mesh is placed in a sling-like position behind the anus and brought up through the ischiorectal fossa and the medial obturator foramen. Studies to date have shown outcomes at 12 and 24 months postoperatively that are comparable to those seen with sacral neuromodulation but there are limited studies looking at outcomes beyond 24 months.
To correlate patient perception of improvement and treatment success with various definitions of continence following surgical repair of SUI in order to identify the optimal definition of continence.
The primary aim was to compare short-, mid-, and long-term subjective treatment success in women undergoing MUS for stress urinary incontinence (SUI).
To evaluate incontinence severity and patient reported outcomes (PROs) of women undergoing concomitant surgical treatment of early stage endometrial cancer and stress urinary incontinence (SUI) compared to women who chose cancer surgery with non-surgical treatment of incontinence, and to women choosing cancer surgery alone.
To determine the impact of surgery for stress urinary incontinence (SUI) on 24-month postoperative condition-specific sexual function.
