ConclusionsHenry Van Roonhuyse is the most credible candidate presently known for having successfully repaired a vesico-vaginal fistula in the pre-modern era.
Anal sphincter injury leads to fecal incontinence. Based on the regenerative capability of laser and human adipose-derived stem cells (hADSCs), this study was designed to assess the effects of co-application o...
Conclusion The vaginal sacrospinous fixation maintains its value in prolapse surgery with the increasing importa nce of native tissue repair. The new laparoscopic pectopexy technique has comparable positive follow-up results with the conventional sacrospinous fixation procedure.
Conclusion: Compared to pharmacological treatment, the surgical repair of the apical vaginal end restored urinary continence in significantly more patients.
AbstractPurpose of ReviewTo describe the epidemiology, pathogenesis, and management of vesicourethral anastomotic stenosis after prostate cancer treatment.Recent FindingsInjectable scar modulating agents administered at the time of direct visual internal urethrotomy of vesicourethral anastomotic stenoses have been shown to improve endoscopic treatment outcomes. Trials are ongoing to find the optimal agent and delivery system. Novel tissue engineering techniques are in development and hold promise.SummaryVesicourethral anastomotic stenosis after the treatment of prostate cancer is a challenging complication for patients and...
Abstract Mid urethral slings (MUS) to treat incontinence were widely introduced almost twenty years ago. After an initial multicenter study in Sweden showed good results and low complications at 2, 6 and 12 months follow-up (Ulmsten et al 1998; Int Urogynecol. J Pelvic Floor Dysfunct. 1998-9: 210-3), hundreds of international studies have confirmed good results and low complication rates also in the long term. However, after millions of women have received MESH implants, rare complications have begun to accumulate. PMID: 31626723 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
ConclusionCondom catheter is frequently used to manage male urinary incontinence but it should not be used carelessly or overlooked as it can cause severe complications such as penile strangulation and penile gangrene.

To show the repair of an uncommon urogynecological pathology, and to illustrate a case where an autologous fascial graft is placed for management of stress urinary incontinence.
To assess the feasibility of outpatient laparoscopic management of apical pelvic organ prolapse along with indicated vaginal repairs and anti-incontinence procedures.
