BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: At present, the enteral nutrition approaches via nose and duodenum (or nose and jejunum) are the preferred method of nutritional support in the medical engineering field, given the superiority of in line with physiological processes and no serious complication. In this study, the authors adopted saline as the acoustic window, and gave enteral nutrition support to critically ill patients, via the nasogastrojejunal approach guided by semi-automated ultrasound. These above patients benefited a lot from this kind of nutrition support treatment, and we aimed to report the detailed information...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: The aim was to assess the long-term surgical outcomes and complications in patients undergoing mesh-augmented vaginal repair of pelvic organ prolapse. METHODS: This is a report of a prospective long-term follow-up experience from the Urogynaecological Service, Counties Manukau District Health Board (CMDHB), Auckland, New Zealand. The subjects were 158 symptomatic women undergoing mesh-augmented prolapse repair (218 kits, Feb 2005 to July 2013) using the Apogee and/or Perigee kits (with IntePro mesh until November 2009, and IntePro Lite mesh thereafter)...

BACKGROUND: Over the last decade, mesh augmented surgical repair is being increasingly used in pelvic organ prolapse. Perigee and Apogee are comprehensive, single-use needle suspension kits that provide a standardized delivery method for mesh or graft-augmented repairs. This study has been carried out to study the safety and efficacy of the Perigee and Apogee mesh repair systems. METHODS: 10 cases of posterior vaginal wall prolapse with or without Apical prolapse underwent Apogee mesh repair surgery and 10 cases of anterior vaginal wall prolapse underwent Perigee mesh repair surgery...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: This study aims to compare the surgical outcomes between hysterectomy and uterine preservation in pelvic reconstruction with Perigee and Apogee systems for severe pelvic organ prolapse. METHODS: Ninety-one women who have undergone transvaginal pelvic reconstructive surgery with Perigee and Apogee systems for severe pelvic organ prolapse were divided into two groups: hysterectomy (n = 39) and uterine preservation (n = 52). The pre-operative and post-operative assessments include subjective urinary and prolapse symptoms, objective pelvic organ prolapse quantification (POP-Q) system, urodynamic examination, and complications...

A variety of tension-free vaginal mesh (TVM) systems are available for surgical treatment of pelvic organ prolapse (POP). These include Prolift, Apogee/Perigee and Avaulta, all of which vary in terms of mesh size, shape and surgical technique to such an extent that they cannot truly be considered the same operation for the purpose of evaluating results. I began carrying out self-made mesh cut out from Gynemesh PS in 2005. This system has four main characteristics: (i) the mesh is intended as a replacement for defective visceral pelvic fascia; (ii) it bridges between the left and right arcus tendineus fascia pelvis (white line, or ATFP); (iii) large-size mesh is held in place by passing cannulas through the obturator fascia (anterior wall) or the sacrospinous ligament (SSL) to attach the arms of the mesh graft; and (iv) the bladder neck is preserved...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: This study aims to compare clinical outcome using the Perigee/Apogee® vs. Prolift® devices for the treatment of pelvic organ prolapse (POP). METHODS: One hundred and eight women with POP stages II to IV were scheduled for either Perigee/Apogee® (Perigee group; n = 60) or Prolift® device (Prolift group; n = 48). Preoperative and postoperative assessments included pelvic examination, urodynamic study, and a personal interview about urinary and sexual symptoms...

BACKGROUND: Vaginal mesh kits are being used to surgically treat apical vaginal prolapse; however, their safety and efficacy are currently unknown. OBJECTIVES: To summarise success and complication rates for commonly used vaginal mesh kits in the treatment of apical prolapse. SEARCH STRATEGY: MEDLINE and other scientific databases were queried for primary research addressing the use of vaginal mesh kits for apical prolapse published between 1950 and 2007, including abstracts presented in major scientific meetings...

This is a prospective study evaluating the efficacy and safety of the Apogee vault repair system in the management of vault prolapse. All patients who underwent this procedure between October 2004 and December 2005 in Townsville, Australia are included in the study. Preoperative and postoperative clinical assessments were done using the pelvic organ prolapse quantification (POPQ) system and patients were followed up at 6 weeks, 12 weeks, 6 months, 12 months and then biannually. Of the 35 patients operated, there were no intraoperative complications and only one patient (2...

OBJECTIVE: The objective of the study was to the characterize the symptoms and management of vaginal mesh-related complications requiring operative intervention. STUDY DESIGN: This was a case series of patients undergoing excision of vaginal graft material. Only women who had vaginal mesh placement for the correction of pelvic organ prolapse (POP) were included. We describe the symptoms, complications, and management of women treated surgically for vaginal mesh-related complications...

OBJECTIVE: To search if the prosthetic kits bring an interest, other that financier. MATERIALS AND METHOD: Authors have counted 5 firms presenting the varied kits. The Prolift kit with synthetic pre- cut mesh made of polypropylene, standardized needle, cannulas and protective devices of recovery of mesh arms in 3 versions, anterior, posterior and total. Perigee and Apogee systems in a synthetic version (IntePro) and a biological version (InteXen ++LP) matched of specific needles for the different obturator passages and infra coccygeus...

BACKGROUND: There are several available techniques for neovaginal reconstruction following exenterative gynecologic surgery. However, all methods are associated with prolonged operative time and increased morbidity. The Apogee and Perigee vaginal vault and prolapse repair systems are innovative and minimally invasive procedures that may prove to be effective in controlling the levator defect and reconstructing the vagina in patients undergoing supra-levator pelvic exenteration. CASE: We present a patient who underwent supra-levator total pelvic exenteration for treatment of recurrent squamous cell carcinoma of the cervix...

BACKGROUND: Vascular access (VA) stenosis with subsequent thrombosis remains one of the major causes of morbidity and hospitalization in haemodialysis patients. The present cross-sectional study was planned in order to analyze the usefulness of brachial artery duplex ultrasound for detection and prediction of vascular access stenoses. METHODS: Color duplex ultrasound (Apogée Cx200, sectorial probe 7.5 MHz) was used to obtain the anatomical pattern of the VA and flow velocity waveforms of the brachial artery in 77 non-selected VA (47 Ciminio-Brescia fistulae and 30 PTFE grafts)...

The laparoscopy cholecistectomy is a surgical procedure described in 1987, and it has had an important apogee and it's had substitute to open procedure. Between its advantages is notable, the postoperatory evolution without pain, paralytic ileus and the short time of hospitalization besides the patient can go away the same day in some cases. In Venezuela, the procedure has been received with enthusiasm by the surgeons with prefer this procedure however, there are complications derived in part for the lack of experience in the first cases, but occur non related of the experience...
