Management of Pelvic Organ Prolapse After Radical Cystectomy

This article explores the anatomy, management options, and outcomes of pelvic organ prolapse with a female cystectomy patient.Recent FindingsThere is a lack of data on surgical management outcomes for prolapse following radical cystectomy. However, most case series from tertiary referral centers show reasonable results irrespective of route of repair. As expected, the surgical planes and the reorientation of the bowel loop for urinary diversion makes any pelvic reconstruction a potential hazard and requires a high level of expertise and counseling to the patient in regard to the management of expectations.SummaryPelvic organ prolapse following radical cystectomy is uncommon but presents a significant challenge to the reconstructive surgeon.

Staging patients along the sepsis timeline requires a thorough knowledge of the evolution of cellular and molecular events at the tissue level. Here, we investigated the kidney, an organ central to the pathophysiology of sepsis. Single cell RNA sequencing and spatial transcriptomics revealed the involvement of various cell populations i...

AbstractPercutaneous collagen induction (PCI) is an alternative treatment for skin dysfunctions, it aims to stimulate collagen production by encouraging normal wound healing that occurs after any trauma by inducing microlesions; also it may be potentiated with the association with drugs such as hyaluronic acid (HA). Our objective was to evaluate the effects of PCI associated with hyaluronic acid (0.9%) on inflammatory process, oxidative stress, and collagen production in rat epidermis. For the study, 36 adult Wistar rats were randomly divided into 6 groups (n = 6): Control; PCI 0.5; PCI 1.0; HA; PCI 0.5&thins...

Authors: Borroni RG, Diegoli M, Grasso M, Concardi M, Agozzino M, Vignini M, Arbustini E Abstract Xeroderma pigmentosum (XP) is a rare autosomal recessive disease characterized by severe cutaneous and ocular sensitivity to sunlight, leading to skin cancer. Most XP patients belong to the XP complementation groups (XP-A to XP-G), due to mutations in genes involved in nucleotide excision repair (NER). On the other hand, the XP Variant type (XP-V, OMIM#278750), which accounts for about 20% of all XP patients, is associated with normal NER function. The disease gene is POLH, which encodes polymerase η (pol η) al...

A sizable portion of the variable efficacy of first generation stem cell therapies as presently practiced may be due to a poor quality of cells following expansion in culture. Regardless of quality, near all such cells die shortly after transplantation. Few clinics and few approaches to cell therapy lead to lasting survival and engraftment of transplanted cells, and beneficial effects are largely mediated by the short period of signaling produced by these cells. A range of approaches have been taken in attempts to make transplanted cells more robust: methodological improvements in the process of obtaining and culturing cel...
