Macroplastique for women with stress urinary incontinence secondary to intrinsic sphincter deficiency
Conclusion Macroplastique® improved subjective and objective outcome measures fo r SUI secondary to ISD as both a primary and secondary treatment option in women.
The objective of this study is to assess the effect of repetitive magnetic stimulation on the motor cortex versus sacral roots in MS patients with lower urinary tract dysfunction (LUTD). 40 MS patients with LUTD were divided according to urodynamic studies (UDS) into two groups (20 patients each): Group A (overactive bladder) and Group B (underactive bladder). Each group was further subdivided into Subgroup (A-I) and (B-I) which received cortical magnetic stimulation and Subgroup (A-II) and (B-II) which received sacral magnetic stimulation. UDS, pelvic ultrasound as well as Incontinence Quality of Life (I-QOL) questionnair...
AbstractBackgroundObstetric anal sphincter injury is the most frequent cause of fecal incontinence (FI) in young women. However, the relationship between the extent of anal sphincter defects and the severity of long-term FI (at least 1 year after delivery) has been poorly studied. The aim of the present study was to determine if, in the long term, the extent of anal sphincter defects graded at anal endosonography was linked with the severity of FI.MethodsA retrospective study was conducted on women with a history of vaginal delivery, who presented with FI and had three-dimensional anorectal high-resolution manometry and en...
ConclusionsChinese women had inactive sexual intercourse during pregnancy. There is a slight association between increased sexual intercourse frequency and a thicker levator ani muscle in pregnant women. Future work may be directed at determining the causality of this association.
ConclusionsExo-anal tomographic imaging of sphincter defects at rest seems sufficiently valid for clinical use and may not be inferior to sphincter assessment on pelvic floor muscle contraction.
AbstractPurposeTemperature-controlled radiofrequency (RF) energy delivery to the sphincter complex has been proposed as an option for those patients not susceptible to a major surgical procedure for fecal incontinence (FI). The aim of the study was to evaluate the long-term (15 years) functional outcomes obtained after RF procedure for FI.MethodsThis was a retrospective analysis of our prospectively collected database of patients that underwent RF procedure for FI. Primary outcomes measured were the Cleveland Clinic Florida Fecal Incontinence scale (CCF-FI), Fecal Incontinence-related Quality of Life Score (FIQLS), t...
Conclusion: Anal dilatation did not appear to alter anal distensibility in patients with a normal anal function before the STARR procedure. PMID: 31738687 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Conclusions: Anorectal function is impaired in IBD patients with perianal disease. Fecal incontinence correlates with poorer quality of life. Anorectal manometry and ultrasonography are useful tools for evaluating IBD patients. PMID: 31625422 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
