Urinary incontinence (UI) is a common symptom affecting almost one-third of adult women. UI can occur because of hypermobility or intrinsic sphincter deficiency of the urethra. Regardless its etiology, it is associated with poor quality of life and most of the incontinent women develop symptoms such as anxiety, depression, and social isolation over time. The synthetic midurethral sling (MUS) was first introduced in 1995 and quickly became the gold standard treatment for women with stress UI because of intrinsic sphincter deficiency and/or urethral hypermobility...

Urinary incontinence and erectile dysfunction are relatively common conditions in the aging male population. Surgical interventions for urinary incontinence include placement of an artificial urinary sphincter (AUS), perineal sling, or sacral nerve stimulator and injections of periurethral bulking agents. Erectile dysfunction can be treated surgically with placement of a penile prosthesis. The complications of these devices can be broadly categorized as device component malposition, malfunction, and infection...

Painful extensor carpi ulnaris tendon instability has various treatments with limited available outcome data. We treated 12 wrists of 11 patients (including eight collegiate or professional athletes) with dorsal transposition of the extensor carpi ulnaris tendon to lie over the 5th compartment, stabilized with a retinacular sling from 2010-2015. All patients had symptom resolution and returned to sport at the pre-injury level by 3 months after surgery. Mean post-surgical Patient Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS) upper extremity score was 56, and PROMIS pain interference score was 42...

Most pregnant women have symptoms of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) during pregnancy. Postmenopausal hormone replacement therapy is associated with GERD. The effects of estradiol on lower esophageal sphincter (LES) motility and GERD are not clearly known. The purpose of this study is to investigate the effects of estradiol on the motility of the porcine LES. Relaxations of clasp and sling strips of porcine LES caused by estradiol were measured using isometric transducers. We investigated the mechanism of estradiol-induced relaxation of the porcine LES using tetraethylammonium, apamine, iberiotoxin, glibenclamide, KT5720, KT5823, NG-nitro-l-arginine, tetrodotoxin, and ω-conotoxin GVIA...

Male sling for urinary incontinence is usually accompanied by very good results, with a small number of complications,but, when appear, they may be redundant. Voluminous urethral stone developed on suburethral sling as a result of sling erosion into the proximal urethra is an extremely rare complication (following the analysis of cases published on the internet, the authors of this article no longer identified another similar case). We present the case of a patient who presented in our clinic for severe and permanent urinary incontinence, perineal discomfortand pain that was influenced by position...

INTRODUCTION: Male stress urinary incontinence (SUI) after radical prostatectomy (RP) is common. The surgical standard of care traditionally has been placement of an artificial urinary sphincter (AUS) but since its introduction the transobturator male sling has been shown to have particular unique advantages. Our aim was to assess outcomes of a consecutive series of suburethral sling insertions in men presenting with all degrees of post RP SUI. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A consecutive cohort of men undergoing AdVance sling insertion following RP were studied...
