OBJECTIVE: Characterize pelvic floor symptom distress and impact, sexual function and quality of life in women who underwent rectal prolapse surgery. METHODS: Subjects undergoing rectal prolapse surgery from 2004-2009 completed questionnaires including the Pelvic Floor Distress Inventory, Pelvic Floor Impact Questionnaire, and the Prolapse/Urinary Incontinence Sexual Questionnaire. Baseline demographic, medical, and surgical characteristics were extracted by chart review...

BACKGROUND: Complete rectal prolapse is characterized by protrusion of full thickness rectal wall through the anal orifice. Despite its rarity more than 100 surgical procedures have been described and there are no good evidence based recommendations for selection of a surgical procedure. This study was conducted to evaluate the clinical outcomes of commonly used procedures for rectal prolapse at our hospital. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Twenty seven patients presenting with complete rectal prolapse between May 2011 to May 2013 were included in this prospective study...

Sparse scalp hair, a peculiar shape of the nose, and cone-shaped epiphyses of the phalanges are the hallmarks of the tricho-rhino-phalangeal syndromes (TRPS). Short stature, hip dysplasia, and malformations of inner organs including mitral valve prolpase have also often been described for these conditions. Here, we described a 64-year-old woman with molecularly proved TRPS I and several atypical late-onset rheumatologic and neurological symptoms.

BACKGROUND: Cervical disc nucleoplasty is a significant and clinically demonstrated innovation in percutaneous disc decompression in case of non-herniated disc protrusions or prolpase. It allows a percutaneous decompression via a 19-gauge needle under utilization of the Coblation technique and under C-arm control. Until now the patients suffering of a cervicobrachialgia in cause of a disc prolapse had only the therapeutical solution between conservative treatment and monosegmental spondylodesis or disc prosthesis of the mentioned motion segment...

OBJECTIVE: Tissue ischemia-hypoxia can activate the calpain proteolytic system. Mechanical trauma to the upper vaginal wall and pelvic floor could compromise vascular perfusion and could also result in calpain expression. The aims of this investigation were to assess the expression messenger RNA and proteins for m-calpain and micro-calpain in the vaginal walls of women with and without uterovaginal prolapse. METHODS: The anterior vaginal walls of 22 women with and without uterovaginal prolpase were evaluated using a reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction and western blotting for detecting calpain expression...

Our concepts of pathophysiology of stress urinary continence have been greatly shaped by developments in radiographic imaging. Simple radiographs with and without contrast initially revealed the importance of urethral descent in pathogenesis. More recently, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and real time ultrasonography are showing soft tissue detail within both a global pelvic and a local urethral context. Careful examination of these studies can extend our concepts of pathophysiology and lead us beyond existing paradigms...

PURPOSE: We determined the indications for anti-incontinence surgery in continent women undergoing surgical repair of severe urogenital prolapse. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We prospectively evaluated 24 continent women referred for evaluation of severe urogenital prolapse. All patients underwent a meticulous clinical evaluation, including a complete history and physical examination, urinary questionnaire, voiding diary, pad test, cotton swab test, video urodynamics and cystoscopy...

A small gap between stent struts is essential to support the vessel wall, prevent elastic recoil, and prevent intimal flaps from prolpasing into the lumen. We defined Gap Index as the ratio of strut width divided by the percent of the vessel wall area covered by the stent metal, and proved mathematically that this index relates inversely to the total length of stent struts (or coil), and directly related to stent cell size. Twenty-four (12 tubular and 12 coil) stents from 17 manufacturers were analyzed. Strut width in the tubular and coil groups was 354...

In 40 postmortem specimens the cervical posterior roots were examined under the surgical microscope, and intradural communicating fibres between neighbouring segments were demonstrated. The implications of these frequent variants for the diagnosis of prolapsed cervical discs are discussed.
