AIMS: Stress urinary incontinence (SUI) is a common problem worldwide. Mainstream surgical procedures include tension-free vaginal tape (TVT), transobturator tape (TOT), tension-free vaginal tape-obturator (TVT-O), tension-free vaginal tape SECUR (TVT-S), and adjustable single-incision sling (Ajust). The aim of this study was to compare the efficacy and safety of these surgical procedures and assess which surgery is most optimal for SUI by adopting a network meta-analysis (NMA). METHODS: Electronic databases including PubMed, Cochrance Library, and Embase database were researched systematically, until March 21, 2017...

OBJECTIVE: To assess whether subsequent childbirths affect the outcomes of midurethral sling surgery with regard to stress urinary incontinence (SUI). METHODS: In this population-based cohort study, we used the validated Swedish nationwide health care registers (the Patient Register and the Medical Birth Register) to identify women with a delivery after midurethral sling surgery (n=207, study group). From the same registers we then randomly identified a control group who had no deliveries after their midurethral sling procedure (n=521, control group)...

We report a case of a mid-urethral sling (Advantage Fit™, Boston Scientific Corporation, Marlborough, Massachusetts) freshly removed from its original package. Upon removal from the packaging, the sling was noted to have a deformation in positioning at the midpoint, with curvature opposite the natural curve of the sling in the body. The images show the comparison to a sling with the desired positioning. Mid-urethral slings are commonly made from polypropylene mesh which has memory properties. It is important that manufacturers ensure that any steps in the processing or packaging of slings do not result in changes in the shape of the sling that may have unknown impacts on its clinical outcome...

REVIEW
S Braun, A B Imhoff
The long head of the biceps and the biceps pulley sling are prone to acute or degenerative injury. As they both were identified as major pain generators, adequate diagnosis and treatment is vital for successful treatment of shoulder pain. Although the basic principles to address either pathology have not changed over the last decades, new trends have evolved to simplify surgical options. SLAP (superior labral tear from anterior to posterior) repair is seen more restrictive and is mostly performed in young individuals, whereas tenotomy or tenodesis are more often used in patients over 30...

BACKGROUND: Scapula fractures are rare injuries that are generally treated nonoperatively. When surgery is performed, it is commonly undertaken through the posterior approach, which can be invasive and unforgiving on the soft tissues. We describe an alternative safe approach between teres major and minor that remains deep to a fascial sling formed by the combined infraspinatus and teres minor fasciae and deep to the primary nerve to teres minor, which is a terminal branch of the axillary nerve...

INTRODUCTION: The impact of surgery for stress urinary incontinence (SUI) on female sexual function has received attention in the medical literature, but not in a structured manner. AIM: To assess the most recent evidence on the impact of surgical management for female SUI on female sexual function. METHODS: The review and meta-analysis of available articles published in Medline, Cochrane, LILACS, SCOPUS, Web of Science, CINHAL, and EMBASE included prospective randomized and non-randomized studies that assessed patients who underwent surgical treatment for UI through 2 validated questionnaires: the Pelvic Organ Prolapse Urinary Incontinence Sexual Questionnaire (PISQ-12) and the Female Sexual Function Index (FSFI)...

PURPOSE: To study correlations between sonographic and urodynamic findings after suburethral sling surgery. METHODS: This is a retrospective study on 141 women who had multichannel urodynamic testing and translabial 4D ultrasound after suburethral sling surgery between 2006 and 2016. The sling-pubis gap, i.e., the distance between sling and infero-posterior margin of the pubic symphysis on Valsalva, and urethral motion profile were determined. The urethral motion profile was assessed by calculating the mobility vectors of 6 equidistant points along the length of urethra from bladder neck to external urethral meatus, against the dorsocaudal margin of the symphysis pubis on Valsalva...

The adaptive immune response involves T cell differentiation and migration to sites of inflammation. T cell trafficking is initiated by rolling on inflamed endothelium. Tethers and slings, discovered in neutrophils, facilitate cell rolling at high shear stress. Here, we demonstrate that the ability to form tethers and slings during rolling is highly inducible in T helper 1 (Th1), Th17, and regulatory T (Treg) cells but less in Th2 cells. In vivo, endogenous Treg cells rolled stably in cremaster venules at physiological shear stress...

In addition to the fibularis longus and brevis muscles, a number of anomalous muscles or tendons can arise from the lateral compartment of the leg. The authors describe a bilateral and robust fibularis digiti quinti (FDQ) tendon present in the foot of a 99-year-old female cadaver, present the incidence of this tendon in a cohort of 26 cadavers dissected by podiatric-medical students for a lower-extremity anatomy course, and discuss the anthropological and clinical significance of the findings. In these specimen, the FDQ tendon arose from the fibularis brevis tendon proximal to the lateral malleolus, but did not separate completely from the fibularis brevis tendon until passing through the inferior fibular retinaculum...

OBJECTIVES: It is hypothesized that urethral dysfunction is central in mixed urinary incontinence (MUI) in women, since urine entering the proximal urethra under increased intra-abdominal pressure provokes a urethro-detrusorial reflex and involuntary detrusor contraction. Mid-urethral slings have been proposed as a solution. Our primary objective was to evaluate the long-term subjective and objective outcomes on continence and other urinary symptoms of a trans-obturator mid-urethral sling (TOT) procedure...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: Morphological and functional anomalies of the urethra may cause stress urinary incontinence after radical hysterectomy (RH). We introduce a novel three-dimensional (3D) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technique to assess the impact of RH on the transobturator sling pathway. METHODS: 3D-MRI reconstruction models were retrospectively developed for the measurement of various parameters before and after RH, including puncture angle, orientation and distance from the midurethral puncture site to the obturator membrane (DUO), in 31 patients with cervical cancer...
