The increased life expectancy, the importance of the prevention in younger age and the role of the pelvic floor disfunction not only in the disease of the third age, but also in the childbearing age, as the influence on the type of delivery, underline the importance of the evaluation of the pelvic floor. The evaluation of pelvic floor is generally clinical, but in the last 2 decades, the use of ultrasound has become a mainstream diagnostic tool in the investigation of female pelvic organ prolapse, urinary and fecal incontinence and defecation disorders, providing an immediate objective confirmation of findings obtained on clinical examination and filling some of the gaps of the urogynecological exam...

Henry Tran, Matthew Rutman
Numerous surgical options are available for management of stress urinary incontinence in women, including urethral bulking agents, pubo-vaginal slings, retropubic bladder neck suspensions, mid-urethral slings, and even artificial urinary sphincters. We discuss the incidence, etiology, diagnosis, evaluation, and management of bladder outlet obstruction (BOO) after anti-incontinence surgery in females. This problem presents with a wide range of symptoms. Urodynamic evaluation is not always diagnostic, but can be helpful...

Urinary incontinence, defined as involuntary leakage of urine, is often considered a disorder of post-partum and post-menopausal women. However, this disorder is not exclusive to older women, as recent research has demonstrated a high prevalence of urinary incontinence among young, nulliparous female athletes. In fact, females participating in repetitive, high-impact sports are at the highest risk for urinary incontinence. In these athletes, the absence of sufficient pelvic floor strength and coordination to withstand sport related increases in intra-abdominal pressure results in physical activity related urinary incontinence, and may be a predictor of urinary incontinence in later adulthood...

Stress urinary incontinence is a common medical problem among women. The urethral closure complex and/or the supportive mechanisms are responsible for incontinence in the majority of patients. Several surgical procedures with different degrees of invasiveness and outcomes have been reported to treat the problem. Although most of these procedures are reasonably effective, a general trend towards the study of natural and biocompatible tissues is emerging over popular synthetic materials. Here we report our experience of autologous adipose-derived stem cells transplantation into the periurethral region as a new method of stress urinary incontinence treatment...

INTRODUCTION: We aimed to introduce our technique describing the removal of a chronic implanted tined-lead in patients with a sacral neuromodulator implant. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We performed a retrospective review of patients who had chronic sacral neuromodulator (InterStim) implanted by a single surgeon from 2001 through 2015. This simple surgical technique was developed and successfully performed to remove the leads. Primary reasons for removal were elective due to poor symptoms control and failure to maintain response or lead migration...

BACKGROUND: Intramedullary ependymal cysts of the spinal cord are rare, benign fluid filled cysts usually situated along the ventral surface of the spinal cord. Since they were first described, only 32 cases have been reported. Thus, owing to the rarity at which these cysts are encountered, their management and pathogenesis remain controversial. While some have previously advocated for cysto-subarachnoid shunt placement for symptomatic ependymal cysts, others have argued for complete cyst resection or simple fenestration...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: The pelvic floor muscles (PFM) play an important part in the urinary continence mechanism. Changes in their structure and functionality may lead to a predisposition to pelvic floor dysfunction such as urinary incontinence (UI), which is the involuntary loss of urine. Some techniques for conservative treatment of UI are already well documented. However, new approaches have been found that require scientific proof of their effectiveness, such as vibratory stimulation (VS)...
