Prospective international multicenter pectopexy trial: interim results and findings post surgery
ConclusionIn clinical routine severe complications occurred in 1%. The latter were unrelated to pectopexy, but occurred due to concomitant procedures or adhesions. The overall operating time as well as the operating time for pectopexy were similar to those reported in published studies on sacrocolpopexy.
ConclusionFissurectomy with posterior midline internal sphincterotomy and mucosal anoplasty is safe with minimal complications. It is still a dependable alternative treatment for chronic posterior anal fissures. The fear of keyhole deformity can be well addressed with the added anoplasty.
CONCLUSION: Men with rectal prolapse were younger, healthier, and had relatively better anorectal function than women. The Delorme-Thiersch operation in men promoted lower recurrence rates and was advantageous in preserving the fertility of young patients, but the incidence of complications was also higher in men. Adequate counseling and preparation for the possibility of complications are needed. PMID: 31726002 [PubMed]
AbstractBackgroundRectal prolapse is a disease presentation with a prevalence of about 1%, mainly affecting older women. It usually presents with symptoms of rectal mass, rectal bleeding, fecal incontinence or constipation, with patients frequently feeling socially isolated as a result. Perineal rectosigmoidectomy is associated with lesser morbidity and mortality than the abdominal procedure, but with a much higher recurrence rate. Therefore, this technique is mainly suitable for the frail elderly patient. Specific outcomes in an elderly population have been described in only a few studies. We evaluated the morbidity, mort...
ConclusionFissurectomy with posterior mid line internal sphincterotomy and mucosal anoplasty is safe with minimal complications. It is still a dependable alternative treatment for chronic posterior anal fissures. The fear of keyhole deformity can be well addressed with the added anoplasty.
Botulinum toxin (Botox) was introduced for the management of internal anal sphincter (IAS) achalasia after a pull-through procedure in Hirschsprung disease (HD). We conducted a prospective evaluation of the efficacy and safety of this Botox treatment. Our study group included 15 patients with HD (median age, 4.8 years; range, 1.7–7.4 years) who experienced persistent constipation after pull-through surgery. Rectal biopsy and colon study were performed before Botox injection to exclude agangliosis. Intersphincteric Botox injections (dose, 4 IU/kg) were performed at 3 sites, (3, 6, and 9 o’clock) under general a...
ConclusionThe technical considerations for performing a LeFort Colpocleisis include ruling out malignancy prior to surgery, adequate lateral channels for uterine drainage, the use of lidocaine with epinephrine, closure in multiple layers with excellent hemostasis and an aggressive posterior colpoperineorrhaphy.
Verrucous carcinoma (VC) is a rare variant of squamous cell carcinoma (SCC). It is described as a low grade, slow growing, locally infiltrative neoplasm that accounts for 3-8% of all penile SCC. A 64-year-old uncircumcised, paraplegic male presented with a 2-month history of an asymptomatic, enlarging penile lesion with episodic spontaneous bleeding. The patient had been confined to a wheelchair for 15 years due to transverse myelitis and was wearing a diaper secondary to overflow urinary incontinence.
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...
Conclusions: To avoid fecal incontinence it is important to limit the portion of the anal canal irradiated. Our analysis confirms that rectal bleeding is a function of similar spatial dose parameters for patients treated with IMRT, compared to previous studies on patients treated with three-dimensional conformal radiotherapy.

Conclusion: Solifenacin and tolterodine yielded similar results on daily micturition frequency, daily urgency episodes, daily incontinence episodes, micturition volume per voiding, and the incidence of dry mouth. However, tolterodine can decrease the constipation rate at 12 weeks compared with solifenacin.Urol Int
