BACKGROUND: Microvascular decompression (MVD) is the most useful treatment for hemifacial spasm (HFS). In cases of vertebral artery (VA) compression of the facial nerve, MVD is often difficult. In this study, we compared the outcome of the biomedical glue sling technique with the traditional technique in MVD for HFS involving the VA. METHODS: This was a retrospective study of patients with HFS treated by MVD, and was conducted between January 2013 and December 2015...

Sir Harold Gillies first described rotating a band of temporalis muscle over the zygoma where the muscle sling was augmented with strips of fascia lata to rehabilitate facial paralysis (1) . McLaughlin later modified this technique in the 1950s without inversion of the temporal muscle but in an orthodromic manner thus avoiding the soft tissue fullness over the zygomatic arch area and depression of the donor site (2) . Although several refinements of this technique have been described, all required skin incisions on the face until a transoral technique was described recently by this clinical group (3) ...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: Mixed urinary incontinence (MUI), defined as mixed symptoms of stress urinary incontinence (SUI) and overactive bladder (OAB), is a difficult entity if conservative treatment has failed. Cure rates are low compared with SUI, particularly the OAB component, may deteriorate after sling insertion. Bulking agents pose an appealing alternative for the treatment of MUI. They have shown beneficial effect in small case studies, but larger series are lacking. The aim of this prospective study was an analysis of treatment efficacy and safety profile of the bulking agent, Bulkamid, in female patients with MUI...

CONTEXT: Surgical nonautologous meshes have been used for several decades to repair abdominal wall herniae. Implantable materials have been adopted for the treatment of female and male stress urinary incontinence (SUI) and female pelvic organ prolapse (POP). OBJECTIVE: A consensus review of existing data based on published meta-analyses and reviews. EVIDENCE ACQUISITION: This document summarises the deliberations of a consensus group meeting convened by the European Association of Urology (EAU) and the European Urogynecological Association, to explore the current evidence relating to the use of polypropylene (PP) materials used for the treatment of SUI and POP, with reference to the 2016 EAU guidelines (European Association of Urology 2016), the European Commission's SCENIHR report on the use of surgical meshes (SCENIHR 2015), other available high-quality evidence, guidelines, and national recommendations...

The risk of arterial vascular injury within the retropubic space is a potentially life-threatening complication associated with mid-urethral sling placement for the treatment of female stress urinary incontinence. To determine the relationship between the major blood vessels and a single incision sling, these slings were placed in 12 fresh female cadavers. Following the insertion of each sling, the retropubic space was dissected and sling placement was observed relative to the obturator neurovascular bundle bilaterally...

BACKGROUND: Tortuous and dolichoectatic vertebrobasilar arteries can impinge on the brainstem and cranial nerves to cause compression syndromes. Transposition techniques are often required to decompress the brainstem with dolichoectatic pathology. We describe our evolution of an anteromedial transposition technique and its efficacy in decompressing the brainstem and relieving symptoms. OBJECTIVE: To present the anteromedial vertebrobasilar artery transposition technique for macrovascular decompression of the brainstem and cranial nerves...

Much is known about lunge feeding in balaenopterid whales, but many key aspects of structure, function, and behavior have not yet been explained in detail, especially with regard to concentrating, positioning, and swallowing large aggregations of prey. We describe a novel system of three integrated structural components, all of which are involved in sequential feeding activities (intraoral transport, filtration, and swallowing of prey) that follow lunge-feeding engulfment of prey-laden water in rorquals: 1) a hammock-like muscular sling comprising extrinsic lingual musculature along the midline of the ventral pouch; 2) the flattened scoop-like arrangement of caudal-most baleen plates converging in the oropharynx adjacent to the esophageal opening; and 3) a flow-diverting flange at the posterior dorsum of the lip, by a flow channel at the angle of the mouth...

The goal of this study was to describe an internal fixation technique for periprosthetic humeral fractures using a cortical onlay strut allograft stabilized with cerclage wires and to evaluate the preliminary results of this approach. An anterolateral approach was used to direct access the fracture and to protect the radial nerve. The fracture was reduced with two forceps, under visual control. The fracture was surrounded by two hemicylinder tibial allografts, placed around the humerus with no prior reaming to create a "sarcophagus" system...

Treatment of a nonunion of the proximal humerus remains a challenge because of the small proximal fragment and poor central cancellous bone stock of the humeral head. In this report, we describe our experience using a "half-folded" pedicled scapular bone flap with an anatomical locking plate to treat an atrophic nonunion of the proximal humerus in a 64-year-old right-handed woman. The patient had fallen and experienced a common humeral neck fracture 2.5 years previously. During the operation, we elevated the pedicled scapular bone flap, which measured 8...

AIMS: The purpose of this study was to determine the impact of resident teaching on outcomes of mid-urethral sling surgery. METHODS: A retrospective review of female patients who underwent an outpatient transobturator (TOT) synthetic mid-urethral sling procedure with and without concomitant prolapse repair by two surgeons (JA, KE) in a tertiary female pelvic medicine practice was performed. Total procedure time (TPT = time from incision to closure including sling placement and any prolapse procedure), estimated blood loss (EBL), and postoperative complications including urinary retention, mesh exposure, reoperation, vaginal bleeding, and leg pain were compared between cases with and without the presence of a resident...

We aimed to prospectively evaluate the association between body mass index (BMI) and development of postoperative-onset pain in women undergoing transobturator midurethral sling procedures. We conducted a prospective, observational cohort study of women undergoing inside-to-out transobturator midurethral sling. At preoperative visit, height, weight, self-reported activity level and baseline pain were documented. At postoperative visits, patients indicated pain location and severity, procedure success, and satisfaction...

INTRODUCTION: More than 200,000 midurethral slings are placed yearly for stress urinary incontinence. Approximately 14% to 20% of women experience worsening sexual function overall after these procedures. We postulated that sling placement injures neural pathways regulating "female prostate" tissue within the anterior vaginal wall. AIM: To perform a meta-analysis for overall sexual function and orgasm using validated questionnaires for transvaginal tape, transobturator tape, and their variants...

PURPOSE: Stress urinary incontinence (SUI) in men is a complication secondary to prostatectomy or resulting from neurological lesions. This study presents our experiences with male suburethral slings over the past decade. METHODS: In this study, we considered patients who presented with SUI and were diagnosed with an intrinsic sphincteric deficiency due to postprostatectomy incontinence (PPI) or other causes (non-PPI). Patients who underwent the suburethral sling procedure using a polypropylene mesh and a cardiovascular patch were retrospectively included...

The mini-sling procedure is a widely used, minimally invasive treatment for stress urinary incontinence. While bladder perforation and stone formation over the mesh is not an expected complication of the mini-sling procedure, in this case, we report on the management of bladder calculi formed over the mesh, which was passed through the bladder while applying the mini-sling procedure, and was eventually removed using holmium laser. Performing cystoscopy in patients with irritative and obstructive symptoms after the sling procedure will help confirm bladder perforation, and an endoscopic approach using holmium laser is an effective treatment...

[Purpose] This study aimed to introduce an approach of pelvic suspension (PS) using sling cords and to obtain evidence for changes in respiratory function of healthy subjects. [Subjects and Methods] Subjects were 25 healthy men. In the supine position, with hip and knee joints flexed at 90°, the subjects' pelvises were suspended with sling belts. Diaphragm excursion, respiratory function, and respiratory comfort in these postures were measured using ultrasonography, respirometry, and visual analog scale (VAS), respectively...

INTRODUCTION: Several surgical procedures have been proposed for the treatment of hyperdivergent dentoskeletal deformities. We propose a new osteotomy technique allowing for lengthening and advancement of the mandibular ramus by intra-oral approach. SURGICAL PROCEDURE: This technique differs from the conventional sagittal split osteotomyin that which the anterior osteotomy line is not continued until the basilar edge but stopped 5-6mm above it. Cutting of the pterygomasseteric sling is systematically done allowing for the lowering of the mandibular angle...
