ConclusionsIn conclusion, we believe this procedure has good results in short term follow up (3 months after surgery), but a high recurrence rate in the middle term follow up. Therefore, this procedure is no longer recommended.ResumoIntroduçãoA taxa de recorrência do prolapso de órgãos pélvicos é uma questão importante que afeta a qualidade de vida do paciente, resultando em um novo procedimento cirúrgico. Os autores adotaram uma nova técnica de suspensão laparoscópica de órgãos pélvicos (suspensão retal) no trata...

Abstract Traditionally, the standard treatment of bladder-prostate rhabdomyosarcoma (BP-RMS) is being implemented to be total cystoprostatectomy and urinary diversion. However, current multimodal treatment approaches emphasize the importance of bladder-sparing surgery.In this case series, it was aimed to indicate the results of the laparoscopic bladder-sparing approach of two pediatric patients with BP RMS. They have admitted to the emergency department due to acute urinary retention (AUR). The tumors located in the prostate causing AUR were detected by Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and the pathological diagnos...

AbstractIntroduction and hypothesisMidurethral slings (MUS) are an established treatment for stress urinary incontinence (SUI), with good objective outcomes and low rates of complications. However, large population-based registry studies highlighted long-term complications from polypropylene slings including erosion, dyspareunia and chronic pain. With recent highly negative media coverage, many women are presenting with chronic pain attributed to the mesh to request complete removal. The available literature provides limited evidence on safety, symptom resolution and incontinence following MUS removal.MethodsWe identified ...

This study consisted of a retrospective analysis of 49 consecutive cases.SettingThis study was set at the Third Affiliated Hospital of Guangzhou Medical University from October 2016 to November 2017.PatientsThe population for this study consisted of women with stage II to IV POP who met eligibility criteria for laparoscopic surgery.InterventionsS-LSC included the use of V-loc barbed suture and retroperitoneal tunneling, in addition to standard single-incision laparoscopic surgery techniques. All 49 cases were successfully completed. All cases included concomitant procedures; 42 (85.7%) had removal of the uterus and adnexa....

CONCLUSION: More than four out of five patients (82.5%) felt improved 86 months after laparoscopic sacrocolpopexy. Of those not improved, two thirds had recurrent prolapse; however, typically mid-vaginal. The other third reported urinary or bowel problems or dyspareunia. Reintervention for prolapse was 3.3%. The most common reasons for reoperation were graft-related complications (7.0%) and urinary incontinence (6.7%). PMID: 31306334 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Wang J, Wang X, Hua K, Chen Y Abstract PURPOSE: Transvaginal mesh (TVM) results in a greater anatomic cure but more complications. We aimed to compare laparoscopic sacrocolpopexy (LSC) plus colporrhaphy with the small intestine submucosa (SIS) graft versus TVM for advanced pelvic organ prolapse (POP). METHODS: Patients with advanced POP who underwent LSC plus colporrhaphy with the SIS graft or TVM at a center between September 2015 and November 2016 were studied. Anatomical outcomes were evaluated using POP quantification. Functional outcomes related to POP and sexual life were evaluated using the Pelv...
