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 article highlights the therapeutic need and summarizes the clinical results of a bone-anchored annular closure device (Barricaid) that was designed to fill the treatment gap in patients with large postsurgical annular defects. Clinical results were summarized by means of a systematic review with meta-analysis of two randomized and two nonrandomized controlled studies.Expert opinion: Professional societal recommendations and clinical study results support the adoption of bone-anchored annular closure for use in properly selected patients undergoing lumbar discectomy who are at high-risk for reherniation due to a large ...

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...

Progeroid mice with DNA repair deficiencies exhibit an accelerated formation of senescent cells and manifestation of age-related conditions. This class of animal model has been used in research relating to cellular senescence in order to cost-effectively demonstrate that targeted removal of senescent cells is beneficial. However, one still needs to be careful when drawing conclusions based on their peculiar biochemistry. Progeria of this nature is quite unlike normal aging at the detail level. Cells become senescent in response to reaching the Hayflick limit, tissue injury, molecular damage, or a toxic environment. ...

Researchers here show that declining expression of the aquaporin AQP1 influences the age-related increase in cellular senescence in tendon stem cells and progenitor cells. Since the more general acceptance in the research community of senescent cell accumulation as an important cause of degenerative aging, there has been an increased interest in deeper investigations of the biochemistry of cellular senescence. It isn't clear that preventing cells from becoming senescent is always going to be beneficial, however. Does the method of prevention work by reducing cell damage and dysfunction that provokes senescence, which is a ...
