Sexual, bladder, bowel and ovarian function 1  year after robot‐assisted radical hysterectomy for early‐stage cervical cancer

AbstractIntroductionSurgery by open radical hysterectomy for cervical cancer is associated with sexual dysfunction as well as lymphedema and bladder problems. Our aim was to assess the impact of robot ‐assisted laparoscopic radical hysterectomy (RRH) with pelvic lymphadenectomy for early‐stage cervical cancer on sexual, bowel, bladder, and lymphatic function and to measure ovarian function after RRH.Material and methodsTwenty ‐six women with early‐stage cervical cancer during 2011‐2013 were investigated before and 1 year after RRH using a validated questionnaire measuring psychological well‐being and sexual, bowel, bladder, and lymphatic function. Blood samples for follicle‐stimulating hormone (FSH), luteinizi ng hormone (LH), sex‐hormone‐binding globulin (SHBG), estradiol, total testosterone, androstenedione, and anti‐Müllerian hormone (AMH) were analyzed at baseline and 1 year after treatment.ResultsAnxiety and depression increased in 17/26 (62%) and 16/26 (65%) of the women respectively. Sexual distress symptoms reported 1  year after RRH were numbness of the labia (P = 0.04) and deep pain during intercourse (P = 0.02). Twelve of 26 (46%) had lymphedema, and 10/26 (35%) had bladder problems 1 year after surgery. Levels of FSH and LH were significantly increased (P

Conclusion: Based on these results NDDS is considered to be an applicable instrument for identifying personality pathology in patients with depressive symptoms, by recognizing the specific pattern. This is thought to be important for adequate treatment planning. PMID: 31517547 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Tankeshwar, Ki-Hyun KimAbstractBioimplant engineering aims to mature biological alternatives to restore, retain, or modify damaged tissues and/or the functionality of organs. Remarkable advancements in modern material technology have helped the diversity of materials for orthopaedic implant application. As such, nanomaterials can simulate the surface properties of natural tissues, especially with respect to surface topography, surface chemistry, surface energy, and ...

In this study, we developed a programmed electrospun 3D NF collector. It can precisely control the moving speed of NF collector during electrospinning; thereby fabricating 3D NFs with desired microstructures (pore size, pore volume, and interconnectivity). Four types of polycaprolactone (PCL) 3D NF matrices with different microstructures can be obtained concurrently on the NF collector surface, which are set by different forward moving speed of the NF collector device: NF-zero (no move, as control), NF-low (0.085 mm/min), NF-mid (0.158 mm/min) and NF-high (0.232 mm/min). A linear increase of the NF sheet thickness (f...
