Clinical efficacy of flap transfer coverage in the treatment of vesicovaginal fistula
ConclusionsFlap transfer coverage is a safe and effective surgical method for repairing VVF. The prone split leg position can better increase exposure. The fistula being away from the incision suture is the key to the success of the operation. Transferring the fistula can effectively improve the cure rate of VVF. Transferring the lateral free flap can maintain vaginal length. (Source: International Urogynecology Journal)

Preoperative accuracy of diagnostic evaluation of urachal carcinoma
CONCLUSIONS: Imaging and cystoscopy are the powerful diagnostic methods for UrC. Serum tumor markers may assist in diagnosis, prognosis, and monitoring. Positive urine FISH can easily misdiagnose UrC as UCa.PMID:36734315 | DOI:10.1002/cam4.5648 (Source: Cancer Control)

Opportunistic salpingectomy during robotic sacrocolpopexy: Data to support a widely accepted practice
Data Brief. 2023 Jan 11;46:108891. doi: 10.1016/j.dib.2023.108891. eCollection 2023 Feb.ABSTRACTWhile surgical outcomes of prophylactic salpingectomy as an ovarian cancer risk reducing measure at the time of hysterectomy for benign indications has already been studied, data has traditionally been extrapolated to surgery for prolapse repair. A retrospective chart review was performed from medical records of patients who had undergone a sacrocolpopexy for pelvic organ prolapse. Variables collected included operation duration, length of hospital stay, readmission within 31 days, estimated blood loss (EBL), number and size of ...
