PURPOSE: To compare mid-term anatomical and functional outcomes following laparoscopic sacrocolpopexy (LS) between women under and over 65. METHODS: Prospective and observational study involving patients with symptomatic pelvic organ prolapse (POP) undergoing LS. Study population was stratified according to patients' age at the time of surgery. POP symptoms and impact on quality of life were assessed by PFIQ-7 and PFDI-20 questionnaires at baseline and during follow-up...

PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to elucidate the molecular mechanisms and to identify the key genes and pathways for pelvic organ prolapse (POP) using bioinformatics analysis. METHODS: The microarray data for GSE53868 included 12 POP and 12 non-POP anterior vaginal wall samples. Differentially expressed genes (DEGs) were identified by GEO2R online tool. Gene ontology (GO) and Kyoto Encyclopedia of Genes and Genomes (KEGG) pathway enrichment analyses were performed using the DAVID database, and a DEG-associated protein-protein interaction (PPI) network was constructed using STRING and visualized in Cytoscape...

PURPOSE: Stress urinary incontinence (SUI) symptoms can be provoked during impact loads such as vertical jumps. To investigate and compare pelvic floor muscle (PFM) activity in women with SUI and continent women (CON) during drop jumps (DJ) and counter movement jumps (CMJ) could clarify the activity of the PFMs during impact loads. METHODS: A tripolar vaginal probe was used to record surface electromyographic (EMG) activity of the PFMs during DJ and CMJ. Time intervals of 30 ms were used to parameterize data from 30 ms before (pre-activity) to 150 ms after (reflex activity) ground contact on a force plate during the landing and take-off phase...

PURPOSE: Previous studies have reported a significant contribution of NC_000008.10:g.128413305 G>T (rs6983267) single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) in the MYC enhancer region to the susceptibility of various cancers. However, the role of rs6983267 SNP in cervical cancer (CC) development and progression has not been demonstrated to date. Therefore, we evaluated the role of rs6983267 SNP in MYC expression in cervical cancers and non-cancerous cervical tissues. In addition, we assessed the role of this SNP in the development and progression of CC...

INTRODUCTION: For the last two decades, obesity rates have been increasing in both developed and developing countries, with the number of obese women roughly doubling during this period (Stevens et al. in Popul Health Metr 10(1):33, 2012). Obesity represents one of the biggest epidemics of the 21st century. The aim of this retrospective study is to characterise the outcomes of gynaecologic surgeries in cases of extremely obese women with a body mass index (BMI) over 40 kg/m2 . METHODS: This study is a retrospective case control study in a single-centre setting...

OBJECTIVE: To explore the feasibility and efficiency of video endoscopic inguinal lymphadenectomy (VEIL) for vulvar cancer. METHODS: We evaluated 46 patients with vulvar cancer. Treatment included VEIL using the hypogastric subcutaneous approach (VEIL-H, 17 patients), VEIL with the limb subcutaneous surgical approach (VEIL-L, 8 patients), and open inguinal lymphadenectomy (OIL, 21 patients). All patients underwent radical vulvectomy; we evaluated operative time, the amount of bleeding, SF score, recurrence rate, etc...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this survey was to assess the opinions of members of the German Society of Gynecologic Endoscopy (AGE) regarding the laparoscopic treatment of ovarian malignancies and current practice at their institutions. METHODS: Between February and October 2015, the AGE sent an anonymous online survey via mail to its members. The questionnaire solicited participants' opinions about the laparoscopic treatment of ovarian cancers according to T stage and borderline tumors, and information about current practice at their institutions...

BACKGROUND: Some studies demonstrated that female genital mycoplasmas play important roles in human papillomavirus (HPV) infection, abnormal cervical cytopathology, and cervical cancer. However, those results remained inconclusive. We aimed to perform a systematic review and meta-analysis to investigate the association between female genital mycoplasmas and those disorders. METHODS: Computerized databases were comprehensively searched before 26 January 2017. Pooled odd radios (ORs) and correlative 95% confidence intervals (CIs) were adopted to evaluate the strength of association...

PURPOSE: Peritoneal mesothelial cysts (PMC) are a clinical dilemma because of their true pathogenic nature. Many definitions have been associated with PMC, including "benign multicystic mesothelioma", "cystic mesothelioma", "multilocular peritoneal inclusion cysts", ''inflammatory cysts of the peritoneum" or "postoperative peritoneal cyst". METHODS: We herein performed a systematic review of the literature focusing on clinical and histopathological aspects of PMC, diagnosis, and therapies...

PURPOSE: To introduce LEIOA, a new screening method to forecast which patients admitted to the hospital because of suspected threatened premature delivery will give birth in < 7 days, so that it can be used to assist in the prognosis and treatment jointly with other clinical tools. METHODS: From 2010 to 2013, 286 tocographies from women with gestational ages comprehended between 24 and 37 weeks were collected and studied. Then, we developed a new predictive model based on uterine contractions which combine the Generalized Hurst Exponent and the Approximate Entropy by logistic regression (LEIOA model)...

PURPOSE: To examine whether thawed embryo transfers can reduce the rate of EP. METHODS: The PubMed, EMBASE, Cochrane Library databases and two randomized controlled trials registration centers were thoroughly searched until March 2017. The clinical outcomes of IVF/ICSI cycles were compared between thawed and fresh embryo transfer. RESULTS: Twenty-one articles were included in this meta-analysis. There were 801,464 pregnancies totally (thawed-ET: n = 158,967, fresh-ET: n = 642,497)...
