BACKGROUND: Saksenaea erythrospora is an emerging and recently described pathogenic fungus mainly causing invasive cutaneous infections. Globally, very few human cases, caused by S. erythrospora, have been reported. In India, among the genus Saksenaea, S. vasiformis was the only reported pathogenic species, until recently when a case of fungal rhinosinusitis was reported to be caused by S. erythrospora. We observed five human cases of necrotizing skin and soft tissue infections caused by S...

AIMS: To present a narrated video designed to demonstrate the steps involved in an open re-do colposuspension. METHODS: This was in a 70-year-old woman who presented with recurrent severe stress urinary incontinence. Urodynamics confirmed severe urodynamic stress incontinence, with no detrusor over activity. Her maximum urethral closure pressure (MUCP) was 8 cm/water. She previously had a total abdominal hysterectomy (TAH), bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy (BSO) and colposuspension in 1998...

Study Design Systematic review. Background Soft tissue injuries to the lower limb bring a substantial health and economic burden to society. Physical agents are commonly used to treat these injuries. However, the effectiveness of many such physical agents is not clearly established in the literature. Objective To evaluate the effectiveness and safety of physical agents for soft tissue injuries of the lower limb. Methods We searched 5 databases from 1990 to 2015 for randomized controlled trials (RCTs), cohort studies, and case-control studies...

BACKGROUND: Tension-free vaginal transobturator tapes are used worldwide in the treatment of urinary incontinence in women. Very few severe complications have been described following this procedure, with no standard treatment yet established. CASE PRESENTATION: We present the case of a 36-year-old French white woman with no remarkable medical history, presenting with an abscess and necrotizing fasciitis 48 hours after an inside-out tension-free transobturator procedure...

BACKGROUND: The application of Kinesio Tex® tape (KT) results, in theory, in the improvement of muscle contractibility by supporting weakened muscles. The effect of KT on muscle strength has been investigated by numerous researchers who have theorized that KT facilitates an immediate increase in muscle strength by generating a concentric pull on the fascia. The effect of KT on balance and functional performance has been controversial because of the inconsistencies of tension and direction of pull required during application of KT and whether its use on healthy individuals provides therapeutic benefits...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: We present our 10-year experience in treating stress urinary incontinence (SUI) using a new minisling technique based on a tension-free vaginal tape band designed by our group. The major advantage of this tape is the use of minibelt polypropylene inserted through a single retropubic incision without the use of needles-the Endopelvic Free Anchor (EFA)-based on its location at the midurethra with a U shape. For insertion, each branch is placed using a simple Pean clamp from the vagina with perforation of the endopelvic fascia to achieve a retropubic insertion...

The transobturator tape (TOT) is an effective treatment for stress urinary incontinence (SUI). Erosion of TOT mesh is a recognised complication requiring excision. A retrospective analysis of 228 females undergoing a TOT procedure over 4 years identified 16 patients (7%) that underwent excision of eroded mesh. Mean age of patients requiring excision was 48.8 years and mean weight was 72.7kg. Mean time to re-presentation was 14.5 months. Presenting symptoms included dyspareunia in 9 patients (56.2%), dysuria in 3 (18...

BACKGROUND: Within the context of an ageing health workforce it is important to gain a greater understanding of the motivations of young people (aged less than 21 years) to choose a career in midwifery. AIM: To explore the reasons why young students decided to study midwifery and enrol in one Australian Bachelor of Midwifery program. METHOD: A descriptive exploratory qualitative design was used. Eleven midwifery students aged less than 21 years on enrollment participated in a semi-structured tape-recorded interview...

INTRODUCTION: Plantar heel pain, also known as plantar fasciitis, causes soreness or tenderness of the sole of the foot under the heel, which sometimes extends into the medial arch. Pain associated with the condition may cause substantial disability and poor health-related quality of life. The prevalence and prognosis are unclear, but the symptoms seem to resolve over time in most people. METHODS AND OUTCOMES: We conducted a systematic overview, aiming to answer the following clinical questions: What are the effects of conservative treatments for plantar heel pain? What are the effects of non-conservative treatments for plantar heel pain? We searched: Medline, Embase, The Cochrane Library and other important databases up to November 2013 (Clinical Evidence reviews are updated periodically, please check our website for the most up-to-date version of this review)...

OBJECTIVE: To determine long-term surgical outcomes of salvage autologous fascial sling placement after a failed synthetic midurethral sling. METHODS: Women who had undergone autologous fascial sling placement without concomitant pelvic surgery for a failed synthetic midurethral sling utilizing mesh with a minimum follow up of 36 months were identified. Charts were reviewed, and patients were contacted by telephone. Success was determined by the Patient Global Impression of Improvement...
