BACKGROUND: Stress urinary incontinence constitutes a significant health and economic burden to society. Traditional suburethral slings are one of the surgical operations used to treat women with symptoms of stress urinary incontinence. OBJECTIVES: To determine the effects of traditional suburethral slings on stress or mixed incontinence in comparison with other management options. SEARCH METHODS: We searched the Cochrane Incontinence Group Specialised Register (searched 3 June 2010) and the reference lists of relevant articles...

A Morel-Lavallee lesion (MLL) is a relatively rare condition that is caused by a traumatic shearing force. This force leads to a closed degloving injury of the subcutaneous tissue and fascia that creates a potential space that can fill with lymph, blood, and necrotic fat. The MLLs are traditionally seen after high impact trauma and typically located at the greater trochanter and pelvis, although recent reports have found them to be located at the knee, thigh, and lower leg. The MLLs typically present as swelling at the site of injury, which can be difficult to differentiate from several other diagnoses...

BACKGROUND: Digital mammography clearly distinguishes gland tissue density from the overlying nonglandular breast tissue coverage, which corresponds to the existing tissue between the skin and the superficial layer of the fascia superficialis surrounding the gland (i.e., dermis and subcutaneous fat). Preoperative digital imaging can determine the thickness of this breast tissue coverage, thus facilitating planning and reducing the rate of necrotic complications after direct to implant (DTI) reconstruction in nipple sparing mastectomy (NSM)...

BACKGROUND: Proactively preserving Scarpa's fascia and thus its intrinsic lymphatic drainage and tensile strength for suture placement can eliminate the need for drains after lipoabdominoplasty and therefore reduce the rate of seroma development. In this article, we describe the effectiveness of a modified progressive traction suture (PTS) technique, which enables us to lessen the most common complications and avoid hospital readmission; these sutures take 3-5 minutes of additional surgery time...

BACKGROUND: The management of large chin and lower lip defects is challenging due to this facial subunit's tremendous functional and aesthetic importance. Specific methods for total lower lip and mentum reconstruction are not well chronicled. Aesthetic and functional goals of this reconstruction include restoration of oral competence by maintaining lower lip height, vermilion reestablishment, color-matched skin introduction to the chin, sensation restoration, and ideally restoration of dynamic activity to the lower lip...

PURPOSE: In laparoscopic ventral hernia repair, parietal ingrowth of the mesh is of crucial importance. Until significant ingrowth occurs integrity of the repair depends solely on mesh overlap and anchoring device. Relatively few studies have addressed the effect of mesh properties and anchoring device on long-term parietal ingrowth. METHODS: In 20 sheep, using laparoscopy, we inserted two different polypropylene-based meshes, Physiomesh™ and Ventralight™ ST, anchored with Protack™, SecureStrap™, or Glubran™...

Dupuytren's contracture is a common hand problem that affects the palmar fascia. Several treatment options exist, but none are curative and recurrence is common. Bacterial collagenase has recently been proven beneficial for treating Dupuytren's disease, cleaving the collagen fibers at different sites, with weakening and eventually rupture of the fibrous cords after manipulation. An independent prospective follow-up study was organized on 87 patients, treated with one or more collagenase injections. Inclusion criteria were a contracture of at least 20° at the metacarpophalangeal (MCP) or the proximal interphalangeal (PIP) joint...

BACKGROUND: The dermatomal level of analgesia achieved with quadratus lumborum blocks varies according to the location of injection. The most commonly used approaches are either at the postero-lateral aspect or anterior to the quadratus lumborum muscle. The aim of the study was to determine whether the site of injection of contrast dye around the quadratus lumborum muscle of cadavers affects the extent and mechanism of dye spread. METHODS: Six fresh human cadavers received either a posterior quadratus lumborum block or an anterior sub-costal quadratus lumborum block on each side...

Since the time of its inception within facial anatomy, wide variability in the terminology as well as the location and extent of retaining ligaments has resulted in confusion over nomenclature. Confusion over nomenclature also arises with regard to the subcutaneous ligamentous attachments, and in the anatomic location and extent described, particularly for zygomatic and masseteric ligaments. Certain historical terms-McGregor's patch, the platysma auricular ligament, parotid cutaneous ligament, platysma auricular fascia, temporoparotid fasica (Lore's fascia), anterior platysma-cutaneous ligament, and platysma cutaneous ligament-delineate retaining ligaments of related anatomic structures that have been conceptualized in various ways...

Periauricular paresthesia may afflict patients for a significant amount of time after facelift surgery. When performing face and neck lift surgery, temple and posterior auricular flap dissection is undertaken directly over the auriculotemporal, great auricular, and lesser occipital nerve territory, leading to potential damage to the nerve. The auriculotemporal nerve remains under the thin outer superficial fascia just below the subfollicular level in the prehelical area. To prevent damage to the auriculotemporal nerve and to protect the temporal hair follicle, the dissection plane should be kept just above the thin fascia covering the auriculotemporal nerve...

Zhanlong Shen, Yingjiang Ye, Shan Wang
Total mesorectal excision (TME) is a mile-stone procedure in the history of rectal cancer surgery, but the exposure of surgical field of distal rectum is usually poor in patients with male, obese and narrow pelvis, which may lead to tumor residue and relative complications. Recently, a new technique called transanal TME (taTME) is considered to solve the above problems, but most medical centers are still in the learning curve of this procedure. Therefore, anatomical planes and landmarks of taTME for rectal cancer and prophylaxis of intraoperative complications are induced in this paper, which includes posterior plane: angle of anus and distal mesorectum and bleeding of mesorectum; rectosacral fascia and presacral bleeding; lateral and posterior-lateral plane: posterior branches of pelvic plexus and damage of anal function; anterior plane: vessel branches of neurovascular bundle and bleeding...

BACKGROUND: Disease-related foot pathology is recognised to have a significant impact on mobility and functional capacity in the majority of patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). The forefoot is widely affected and the metatarsophalangeal (MTP) joints are the most common site of symptoms. The plantar plates are the fibrocartilaginous distal attachments of the plantar fascia inserting into the five proximal phalanges. Together with the transverse metatarsal ligament they prevent splaying of the forefoot and subluxation of the MTP joints...

BACKGROUND: Ultrasound imaging is often used by physiotherapists and other healthcare professionals but the reliability of image acquisition with different ultrasound machines is unknown. The objective was to compare the intra-rater, inter-rater and intermachine reliability of thickness measurements of the plantar fascia (PF), Achilles tendon (AT), patellar tendon (PT) and elbow common extensor tendon (ECET) with musculoskeletal ultrasound imaging (MSUS). METHODS: Tendon thickness was measured in four anatomical structures (14 participants, 28 images per tendon) by two sonographers and with two different ultrasound machines...

CONTEXT: Of the weight bearing exercises, single leg squat (SLS) represents one of the most commonly used hip strengthening exercises that require more gluteus medius (GMED) activity. To date, no studies have investigated how the four SLS exercises affects muscle imbalance of GMED, tensor fasciae latae (TFL), and adductor longus (AL), and kinematics of hip. OBJECTIVE: To investigate the hip muscle activities, onset time, and kinematics during four different SLS exercises (unilateral squat, unilateral wall-squat, lateral step-down, and front step-down) in subjects with GMED weakness...

Urethral fistula formation after urethroplasty for hypospadias is a frequent complication. Repeated failures can occur even after multiple attempts at repair. A surgical procedure is described for a problematic resistant urethrocutaneous fistula (UF) with the transverse turnover flap using the Buck's fascia of the corpus cavernosum. A 23-year-old male was admitted to our hospital with recurrent coronal UF. We placed a suprapubic catheter in the bladder and operated the patient with the flap technique combined with glanuloplasty...

PURPOSE: The inferior extensor retinaculum (IER) is an aponeurotic structure located in the anterior aspect of the ankle. According to the literature, it can be used to reinforce a repair of the anterior talofibular ligament in ankle instability. Despite its usual description as an Y-shaped structure, it is still unclear which part of the retinaculum is used for this purpose, or if it is instead the crural fascia that is being used. The purpose of this study is to define the anatomical characteristics of the IER to better understand its role in the Broström-Gould procedure...
