Anterior Colporrhaphy With and Without Dermal Allograft: A Randomized Control Trial With Long-Term Follow-Up

Conclusions We cannot conclude whether there is a difference in anterior recurrence for anterior colporrhaphy with and without dermal allograft and do not recommend changes in clinical practice based on these results.

Conclusions: High-grade spondylolisthesis is common in LDS and usually associated with spondylolysis. Patients requiring surgery for spondylolisthesis present during childhood and do well after instrumented PSF. Interbody fusion and stabilization of S1 and S2 can prevent physeal deformation. LDS should be considered in patients with high-grade spondylolisthesis. Patients with LDS should be monitored for spondylolisthesis and spondylolysis starting when they are young. Level of Evidence: Level IV—retrospective study.

We report the case of a 66 year old female with a supratrigonal vesicovaginal fistula (VVF) that developed after undergoing radical hysterectomy, chemotherapy and pelvic radiation therapy for advanced cervical cancer. VVF repairs in an irradiated field are known to be complicated procedures with significant morbidity and a high rate of failure due to the effect of radiation. Amniotic membranes have been demonstrated to improve healing rates in difficult to heal wounds. To decrease morbidity a minimally invasive robotic procedure was performed and a dehydrated amniotic allograft patch was used to augment tissue healing...

Conclusions The authors showed that their cohort of patients with infection had a high rate of draining wounds, MRSA infections, administration of antibiotics more than 1 hour ahead of incision, and prolonged need for intravenous access after surgery. Efforts to mitigate these associations by using vancomycin prophylactically, doing meticulous wound closure to prevent drainage or dehiscence, and delivering antibiotics at an optimal time ahead of incision may lead to a decrease in infection rates in pediatric spinal surgery. Future prospective studies will be needed to validate this.

Synthetic or biological materials can be used for the surgical repair of pelvic organ prolapse (POP) or stress urinary incontinence (SUI). While non‐degradable synthetic mesh has a low failure rate, it is prone to complications such as infection and erosion, particularly in the urological/gynecological setting when subject to chronic influences of gravity and intermittent, repetitive strain. Biological materials have lower complication rates, although allografts and xenografts have a high risk of failure and the theoretical risk of infection. Autografts are used successfully for the treatment of SUI and are not associate...
