INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: The majority of patients with cystocele undergoing reconstructive surgery have combined defects of pubocervical fascia and uterosacral/cardinal ligament complex. In this regard, the simultaneous correction of both defects is rational. Furthermore, decreasing the use of synthetic materials in pelvic floor surgery is an important goal. The aim was to evaluate the objective and subjective cure rate of a hybrid technique: bilateral sacrospinous fixation using modern monofilament synthetic tape (apical sling) combined with the original technique of subfascial colporrhaphy...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESES: One of the most relevant topics in the field of pelvic floor dysfunction treatment is the long-term efficacy of surgical procedures, in particular, the use of prosthesis. Hence, a systematic review and meta-analysis was conducted to evaluate the long-term effectiveness and safety of midurethral sling (MUS) procedures for stress urinary incontinence (SUI), as reported in randomised controlled trials (RCTs) and non-randomised studies. METHODS: This systematic review is based on material searched and obtained via PubMed/Medline, Scopus, and the Cochrane Library between January 2000 and October 2016...

Taking measurements of a scene is an integral aspect of the crime scene documentation process, and accepted limits of accuracy for taking measurements at a crime scene vary throughout the world. In the UK, there is no published accepted limit of accuracy, whereas the United States has an accepted limit of accuracy of 0.25 inch. As part of the International organisation for Standardisation 17020 accreditation competency testing is required for all work conducted at the crime scene. As part of this, all measuring devices need to be calibrated within known tolerances in order to meet the required standard, and measurements will be required to have a clearly defined limit of accuracy...

BACKGROUND: Stress urinary incontinence (SUI) is defined as the involuntary leakage of urine while making an effort, such as coughing, sneezing or during activity. Since SUI generates high costs and affects the quality of life, it is important to make a proper diagnosis and, consequently, manage SUI efficiently. The objective was to know whether it is appropriate to use polypropylene mesh for SUI. METHODS: A historical cohort was conducted by reviewing records of patients with SUI treated with polypropylene mesh during 2013 with a follow-up of 12 months...

[Purpose] Although there are several studies on the use of elastic tape to influence muscle strength, results are contradictory and controversial. Our previous studies based on the sliding mechanism between superficial fascia and subcutaneous tissue may help the muscle strength. The purpose of this study was to confirm the effects of new taping methods on muscle strength. [Subjects and Methods] Sixteen healthy male participants took part in this study. Tape was applied on the right gluteus maximus and hip extension strength was determined by an isokinetic evaluation (30°/sec, concentric mode, four conditions)...

BACKGROUND: Skin-to-skin care (SSC), often referred to as 'kangaroo care' (KC) due to its similarity with marsupial behaviour of ventral maternal-infant contact, is one non-pharmacological intervention for pain control in infants. OBJECTIVES: The primary objectives were to determine the effect of SSC alone on pain from medical or nursing procedures in neonates compared to no intervention, sucrose or other analgesics, or additions to simple SSC such as rocking; and to determine the effects of the amount of SSC (duration in minutes), method of administration (e...

Gap junction turnover occurs by the internalization of both plasma membranes of a gap junction plaque to form a double membrane-enclosed vesicle, or connexosome. Phosphorylation has a key role in regulation, but further progress requires clearly distinguishing gap junctions and connexosomes and precisely localizing proteins to them. We examined by electron microscopy serial sections of mouse preovulatory ovarian follicles collected with an automated tape collecting ultramicrotome (ATUM). We found connexosomes may form from adjacent cell bodies, from thin cell processes, or from the same cell...

Desorption electrospray ionization mass spectrometry (DESI-MS) previously has been used to capture and identify transient intermediates in electrochemical redox reactions on a platinum-covered rotating waterwheel. We present here two different setups that use a flat surface with porous carbon tape as the working electrode, where analyte-containing microdroplets from the DESI probe contacted with electrolyte supplied onto the surface. One setup had the conducting carbon tape in the form of a grooved inclined plane; the other one was in the form of a flat plane that had the conducting carbon tape as its front surface...

We report a simple, low-cost, and brand-new electrochemical lithography technique for replicating the template pattern with high resolution at ∼2 μm. The developed method is that the electroactive material is first deposited on the patterned conductive template by the electrochemical technique and then peeled by an adhesive tape/material. The resulting film with the precise pattern shows excellent mechanical and electronic properties and promises high prospect in designing flexible electronics. This interesting approach can be performed at ambient conditions and easily generalized to pattern various electroactive materials covering metal, alloy, nonmetal, salt, oxide, and composite on different types of substrates in several seconds to a few minutes, making the mass production of flexible/rigid/stretchable patterned thin films quite possible...

Restorative dental procedures are ever developing; one reason for this can be attributed to newer materials with better handling properties and our ability to manipulate them more effectively. As a result various techniques have been described to aid clinicians in obtaining predictable results in restorative dental procedures. This article aims to review the use of plumber's tape to assist in adhesive, endodontic and implant related dental procedures, when compared to other available materials.

INTRODUCTION: Accelerometer-based physical activity monitoring has become the method of choice in many large-scale physical activity (PA) studies. However, there is an ongoing debate regarding the placement of the device, the determination of device wear time, and how to solve a lack of participant compliance. The aim of this study was to assess the compliance of Axivity AX3 accelerometers taped directly to the skin of 9-13-year-old children. METHODS: Children in 46 school classes (53...
