INTRODUCTION: Blepharophimosis Syndrome (BPES) is a complex and rare disease characterized by epicanthus inversus, telecanthus, lateral ectropion, narrowed or shortened inter-palpebral fissure distance and ptosis. It is mostly bilateral and may or may not be symmetrical. It is typically inherited as an autosomal dominant trait. In sporadic cases, the disease may occur without a prior family history as a genetic mutation from a deletion or translocation of the FOXL2 gene, which maps to chromosome 3q23...

OBJECTIVE: In this study, we aimed to evaluate the effect of sacrocolpopexy and retropubic midurethral sling, or transvaginal tape (TVT) procedure, on overactive bladder (OAB) symptoms. Our null hypothesis was that concomitant sacrocolpopexy and TVT exacerbate OAB symptoms. MATERIAL AND METHODS: This is a prospective cohort study. All subjects had apical/anterior prolapse and underwent robotic-assisted sacrocolpopexy and TVT, with or without concomitant hysterectomy...

The condition of proximal interphalangeal joint (PIPJ) locking in hyperextension may occur in the athetoid or spastic hand with moderate or severe swan-neck deformity at the 'opening' phase of prehension. The patient's complaints are of complete or incomplete locking that may require passive assistance to initiate PIPJ flexion. Surgical procedures to overcome this include rerouting the lateral band, stabilisation or reconstruction procedure for the volar instability of the PIPJ, etc. Volar stabilisation may be achieved by Flexor digitorum superficialis (FDS) tenodesis procedures or criss-cross tendon graft for volar plate reconstruction...

Stroke patients often use various arm slings, but the effects of different slings on the joint kinematics and muscle activity of the arm in the gait have not been investigated. The effects of joint kinematics and muscle activity in the gait were investigated to provide suggestions for gait training for stroke patients. In all, 10 chronic stroke patients were voluntarily recruited. An eight-camera three-dimensional motion analysis system was used to measure joint kinematics while walking; simultaneously, electromyography data were collected for the anterior and posterior deltoids and latissimus dorsi...

Midurethral slings are used to correct urethral hypermobility in female stress urinary incontinence, defined as the complaint of involuntary urine leakage when the intra-abdominal pressure is increased. Structural and thermal features influence their mechanical properties, which may explain postoperative complications, e.g., erosion, urethral obstruction. We studied the effect of the mesh stiffness on urethral mobility at Valsalva maneuver, under impairment of the supporting structures (levator ani and/or ligaments), by using a numerical model...

INTRODUCTION: Overactive bladder (OAB) symptoms (urge, frequency, nocturia) are not generally considered surgically curable by learning institutions. The Integral Theory hypothesizes that OAB is a prematurely activated, but normal micturition reflex caused by loose suspensory ligaments and potentially curable surgically by repairing such ligaments. To test this hypothesis by surgical repair of loose cardinal and uterosacral ligaments in patients with 2(nd) degree or greater uterine/apical prolapse...
