REVIEW
Marvin D Atkins, Stephanie Fuller
Vascular rings and slings may represent life-threatening compression of the esophagus and trachea. Such anatomic variants, although rare, are encountered by all thoracic surgeons in the scope of their practice at some time. The thoracic surgeon, whether treating such patients in the practice of congenital heart surgery, or in the practice of adult cardiac or thoracic surgery must have a requisite understanding of such anatomic variants, their diagnostic workup and radiologic interpretation, as well as their surgical management...

BACKGROUND: Microvascular decompression (MVD) is useful treatment for Hemifacial spasm (HFS) with refractory hypertension (RHTN). Biomedical glue sling technique is a new method for MVD. In this study, we retrospectively compared the outcome of biomedical glue sling technique with traditional technique in MVD for HFS with RHTN. METHODS: A retrospective study of HFS with RHTN treated by MVD was conducted between January 2010 and June 2016. There were 155 patients underwent their first MVD at our institution...

Objective: We present our experience of microvascular decompression (MVD) for glossopharyngeal neuralgia (GPN) and evaluate the postoperative outcomes in accordance with four different operative techniques during MVD. Methods: In total, 30 patients with intractable primary typical GPN who underwent MVD without rhizotomy and were followed for more than 2 years were included in the analysis. Each MVD was performed using one of four different surgical techniques: interposition of Teflon pieces, transposition of offending vessels using Teflon pieces, transposition of offending vessels using a fibrin-glue-coated Teflon sling, and removal of offending veins...

The current investigation measured cognitive performance, subjective ratings of mood and sleep in Formula 1® (F1) race team members during the 2013 Singapore Grand Prix. Two weeks prior to the Singapore Grand Prix participants (n = 16; mean age 33.5 years, range 22-48 years) underwent baseline cognitive assessments as well as a questionnaire on mood and sleep quality/duration. These assessments were repeated on the race weekend prior to practice (S1) and post qualifying (S2). A significant increase in simple reaction time (SRT), that is slowing of total response time was observed from baseline to S1 (33...

OBJECTIVE: The objective of the study was to evaluate the utility of urodynamic studies performed before primary midurethral sling placement for stress urinary incontinence in predicting the need for subsequent sling release for voiding dysfunction. METHODS: The health records of women managed with primary synthetic midurethral sling placement at Mayo Clinic (Rochester, MN) from January 1, 2002, to December 31, 2012, were reviewed. The primary outcome was surgical sling release for postoperative voiding dysfunction (ie, prolonged retention, elevated postvoid residual volumes with new voiding symptoms, or de novo onset or worsening of overactive bladder symptoms)...

INTRODUCTION: Surgical treatment of urinary incontinence progressed significantly with the introduction of synthetic slings. However, in some public Brazilian hospitals, the costs of these materials prevent their routine use. OBJECTIVE: To compare the costs of ambulatory synthetic sling surgery with an historical series of patients submitted to Burch surgery in a Brazilian public hospital. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Twenty nine incontinent patients were selected to synthetic sling surgery...

OBJECTIVES: To analyse the safety, efficacy and quality of life of patients with male stress urinary incontinence after radical prostatectomy treated with the AdVance(®) and AdvanceXP(®) slings. PATIENTS AND METHOD: The study included 92 patients with stress urinary incontinence after radical prostatectomy treated with the AdVance(®) and AdVanceXP(®) sling between May 2008 and December 2015. A perineal repositioning test was performed in all cases with sphincter coaptation of≥1...

AIMS: To evaluate the outcomes and complications at long-term follow-up after a Remeex re-adjustable sling for recurrent stress urinary incontinence (rSUI) and intrinsic sphincteric deficiency (ISD) in women. METHODS: Two hundred thirty women with SUI were evaluated after undergoing a re-adjustable sling operation. Twenty-five patients were lost to follow-up, 205 were classified by Q-tip, urodynamic, and clinical criteria into ISD (109) and rSUI (96). Outcome measures included number of pads, 1 h pad-test, urodynamics and subjective satisfaction index with the procedure...

Purpose: The purpose of the present study was to investigate the correlation between the postoperative stability and area of pterygomasseteric sling (PMS). Materials and Methods: Forty patients of mandibular prognathism were treated by isolated mandibular setback. Serial lateral cephalograms were collected (preoperatively [T1], immediately after surgery [T2], and more than 1 year postoperatively [T3]). The postoperative stability (T32) was divided into 3 groups (total, forward, and backward movements)...

Monteggia fractures are rare traumatic injuries in cats and dogs. Ulna repair is mostly achieved by plates. Stable radial head fixation however is challenging. Temporary position screws have to be removed due to rotation forces in the elbow joint causing screw loosening. We present a novel and simple method using a sling technique, which holds the radial head in its physiological position and allows normal elbow movement.

REVIEW
C Hampel
Alloplastic transvaginal meshes have become very popular in the surgery of pelvic organ prolapse (POP) as did alloplastic suburethral slings in female stress incontinence surgery, but without adequate supporting data. The simplicity of the mesh procedure facilitates its propagation with acceptance of higher revision and complication rates. Since attending physicians do more and more prolapse surgeries without practicing or teaching alternative techniques, expertise in these alternatives, which might be very useful in cases of recurrence, persistence or complications, is permanently lost...

Background: Erectile dysfunction is a prevalent disease affecting over 50% of men between the ages of 40 and 70 years. Penile prosthesis represents the end of the line treatment when other less invasive therapies fail or are contraindicated. Male stress urinary incontinence can significantly diminish quality of life and lead to embarrassment and social withdrawal. Surgical therapies, such as male urethral slings and artificial urinary sphincters (AUS), are considered effective and safe treatments for male stress incontinence...

Congenital cardiovascular anomalies, such as dextrocardia, persistent left superior vena cava (SVC), and pulmonary artery (PA) sling, are rare disorders. These congenital anomalies can occur alone, or coincide with other congenital malformations. In the majority of cases, congenital anomalies are detected early in life by certain signs and symptoms. A 56-year-old man with no previous medical history was admitted due to recurrent wide QRS complex tachycardia with hemodynamic collapse. A chest radiograph showed dextrocardia...

Children requiring reimplantation of a branch pulmonary artery (PA) are at risk for postoperative stenosis and impaired growth of the reimplanted PA. Outcomes and risk factors for reintervention and impaired growth are incompletely described. We reviewed data on patients who underwent reimplantation of a branch PA between 1/1/99 and 5/1/15 at a single center. The primary outcome was reintervention to treat postoperative stenosis. The secondary outcome was "catch-up" growth (faster diameter growth of the affected PA compared with the unaffected PA from the preoperative to follow-up measurements...

Purpose: This research note describes an adapted experimental methodology to administer an exogenous agent to the larynx and upper airway of awake animals. The exogenous agent could be a perturbation. In the current study, the agent was isotonic saline. Isotonic saline was selected because it is safe, of similar composition to extracellular fluid, and used in voice studies. The described approach allowed large animals such as pigs to be comfortably restrained without chemical sedation or anesthesia for extended periods while receiving the agent...

OBJECTIVES: To report long-term outcomes after I-Stop TOMS™ implantation for PPI. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A retrospective evaluation was conducted in three tertiary reference centers. All consecutive patients implanted with an I-Stop TOMS™ sling between 2007 and 2012 for mild to moderate PPI (24-hour Pad test<400g) without history of pelvic radiation therapy were included. Evaluation had been conducted preoperatively, at one and six months postoperative and yearly thereafter...
