BACKGROUND: Uterine power morcellation, where the uterus is shred into smaller pieces, is a widely used technique for removal of uterine specimens in patients undergoing minimally invasive abdominal hysterectomy or myomectomy. Complications related to power morcellation of uterine specimens led to US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) communications in 2014 ultimately recommending against the use of power morcellation for women undergoing minimally invasive hysterectomy. Subsequently, practitioners drastically decreased the use of morcellation...

Caudal duplication syndrome is an exceedingly rare condition that manifests as duplicative anomalies of the gastrointestinal and genitourinary systems. We present a case of an adult patient born with multiple congenital anomalies including duplicated reproductive and urinary systems. She presented to our center for initial evaluation 11 years ago largely experiencing right-sided pelvic organ prolapse and bilateral urinary tract voiding dysfunction. She underwent successful surgical management and presented several years later for recurrent symptoms...

PURPOSES: Our study aims to enhance the accuracy of the clinical diagnosis in patients with vaginal mesh extrusion following transvaginal mesh placement for pelvic organ prolapse using significant clinical parameters and risk factors. METHODS: All patients who underwent vaginal mesh removal were retrospectively reviewed from January 2000 to May 2014. Eligible patients were divided into two groups according to the presence of vaginal mesh extrusion. RESULTS: A total of 862 patients, 798 were included...

Severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID), the most severe form of T cell immunodeficiency, is detectable through quantification of T cell receptor excision circles (TRECs) in dried blood spots obtained at birth. Herein, we describe the results of the first year of the Israeli SCID newborn screening (NBS) program. This important, life-saving screening test is available at no cost for every newborn in Israel. Eight SCID patients were diagnosed through the NBS program in its first year, revealing an incidence of 1:22,500 births in the Israeli population...

AIMS: To present our technique of suprameatal urethrolysis with Martius flap (SMUM) and outcomes of this procedure for refractory female bladder outflow obstruction (BOO). METHODS: A retrospective chart review was performed to identify female patients who underwent SMUM between January 2010 and August 2016 after failed transvaginal urethrolysis (TVU) for BOO due to prior stress urinary incontinence (SUI) surgery. The primary outcome measure was surgical success defined as patient ability to void volitionally without need for catheterization or additional surgery for BOO...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the safety and short-term efficacy of complete sacrocolpopexy mesh excision with concomitant autologous fascia sacrocolpopexy. METHODS: A retrospective cohort study of patients undergoing complete sacrocolpopexy mesh excision and concomitant autologous fascia sacrocolpopexy from March 2013 to September 2016 was conducted. The primary objective was assessment of perioperative outcomes including complications within 60 days of surgery. The secondary outcome measure was surgical success defined as no need for retreatment by either surgery for apical prolapse or pessary...

PURPOSE: Population screening of three common BRCA1/BRCA2 mutations in Ashkenazi Jews (AJ) apparently fulfills screening criteria. We compared streamlined BRCA screening via self-referral with proactive recruitment in medical settings. METHODS: Unaffected AJ, age ≥25 years without known familial mutations, were either self-referred or recruiter-enrolled. Before testing, participants received written information and self-reported family history (FH). After testing, both non-carriers with significant FH and carriers received in-person genetic counseling...

PURPOSE: There is currently a national shortage of indigo carmine. In efforts to identify the most efficient aid for visualizing ureteral efflux intraoperatively we investigated the time to excretion of phenazopyridine vs a newly identified alternative, sodium fluorescein. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We analyzed prospectively collected data on a cohort of women who underwent pelvic reconstructive surgery in 2015. Per provider preference patterns a number of patients were administered 200 mg phenazopyridine orally with a sip of water 1 hour prior to the start of operative time...

OBJECTIVES: Vaginal mesh complications necessitating excision are increasingly prevalent. We aim to study whether subclinical chronically infected mesh contributes to the development of delayed-onset mesh complications or recurrent urinary tract infections (UTIs). METHODS: Women undergoing mesh removal from August 2013 through May 2014 were identified by surgical code for vaginal mesh removal. Only women undergoing removal of anti-incontinence mesh were included...

OBJECTIVES: We report our experience with removal of synthetic and biologic implants used in pelvic reconstruction in a tertiary referral center from 2005 to 2012. METHODS: We performed a retrospective cohort study of all consecutive patients who underwent surgical implant removal for treatment of implant-related complications. Symptoms were determined by patient self-assessment including validated questionnaires. One hundred seventy-nine patients completed follow-up...

BACKGROUND: Crouch gait is a major sagittal plane deviation in children diagnosed with cerebral palsy (CP). It is defined as a combination of excessive ankle dorsiflexion and knee and hip flexion throughout the stance phase. To the best of our knowledge, functional electrical stimulation (FES) has not been used to decrease the severity of crouch gait in CP subjects and assist in achieving lower limb extension. PURPOSE: To evaluate the short- and long-term effects of FES to the quadriceps muscles in preventing crouch gait and achieving ankle plantar flexion, knee and hip extension at the stance phase...

Here we demonstrate that the smallest possible motif of the amphiphilic and pleated β-strand structure can be generated using tri-peptides stabilized by π-π stacking interactions. Monitoring the early stages of Phe-Glu-Phe fibril formation revealed unique angular orientations. Phe-Glu-Phe fibrils were further exploited as adsorbing templates for metal ions.
