INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: There is a shortage of reliable data on the efficiency of the under-investigated mini-slings to treat stress urinary incontinence (SUI). We aimed to compare the effectiveness of the single-incision needleless mini-sling (SIMS) with the transobturator inside-out mid-urethral sling (TOT). MATERIALS AND METHODS: Two hundred one women with clinically proven SUI were included in this single-center prospective randomized trial. The patients were randomly allocated to the groups...

OBJECTIVE: To review measures used in recent randomised controlled trials (RCTs) evaluating stress urinary incontinence (SUI) treatments and to propose the most relevant outcome measure that should be included in future trials. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We identified RCTs for SUI interventions published between January 2015 and July 2017. We listed the objective and subjective outcome measures used in eligible trials in the literature search. Using data from our RCT conducted from 2013 to 2016 evaluating pulsed magnetic stimulation for SUI, we analysed the correlation between all measures...

OBJECTIVE: To compare the efficacy, safety, postoperative complications and discomforts between TVT-EXACT (TVT-E) and TVT-ABBREVO (TVT-A) for treatment of female stress urinary incontinence. METHODS: Recruited patients were randomized into either TVT-E or TVT-A group using SPSS software. Follow-up measures were performed at day 1 before surgery and both 3 and 12 months after the surgery. The measurement outcomes were the scores of involved six questionnaires on quality of life, symptom severity and patient satisfaction...

Objective: To evaluate the effect of vaginal transobturator tape (TOT) on female stress urinary incontinence (SUI) and sexual function. Patients and methods: In all, 145 patients with SUI underwent TOT repair using the 'outside-in' technique. All patients had been sexually active in the previous 6 months. Patients were evaluated by history, routine laboratory investigations, cough stress test, abdominopelvic ultrasonography, and full urodynamic studies. The preoperative data assessed included: age, parity, body mass index, menopausal status, and Stamey grade of SUI...

Background: Studies have shown that poor shelter or dwelling conditions may lead to deteriorations in health. Those with asthma may be more susceptible to compromised living conditions and stress leading to a higher risk of asthma exacerbations. To describe the asthma control and quality of life of individuals with diagnosed asthma living in a shelter in Damascus, Syria and estimate the prevalence of respiratory symptoms in shelter dwellers without diagnosed asthma. Methods: In this cross-sectional study, all individuals 5 years and older living in Al-Herjalleh shelter with diagnosed asthma were recruited to complete a questionnaire, which included items related to their respiratory symptoms, asthma exacerbations, exposure to asthma triggers, medication use, and health-related quality of life before and since entering the shelter...

PURPOSE: The cough stress test (CST) is a common and accepted tool to evaluate stress urinary incontinence but there is no agreement on how the test should be conducted. We assessed the diagnostic ability of different CSTs performed varying patient's position and bladder volumes using urodynamic stress urinary incontinence (USI) as the gold standard. The 24-hour pad test was also evaluated. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Women presenting to specialty outpatient clinics with complaints of urinary incontinence and recommended to undergo urodynamic testing were recruited...

PURPOSE: Currently, it is unclear how the mesh tension should be adjusted on the transobturator tape surgery (TOT) for improving continence. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of per-operative cough stress test on TOT. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Between March 2007 and December 2011, 206 women with SUI were enrolled in this study. Patients were randomly categorized to treatment with TOT (96) or TOT with cough stress test (110). The IIQ-7 and the UDI-6 were used to identify satisfaction level...

BACKGROUND: Tracheal extubation is almost always associated with increase in sympathoadrenal activity may result in hypertension, tachycardia, and arrhythmias. Attempts have been made to oppose the pressor response by the use of various drugs. Dexmedetomidine decreases norepinephrine which reduces the blood pressure and the heart rate (HR). We hypothesize that the infusion of dexmedetomidine may produce more stable hemodynamics during extubation as compared to boluses. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Ninety adult patients aged 18-65 years, the American Society of Anesthesiologists Grade I-II undergoing intracranial surgeries for various neurologic problem at All India Institute of Medical Sciences were enrolled in this randomized controlled trial...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: Investigating the activity of the pelvic floor muscles (PFMs) in women during impact activities such as jumping, running or coughing may elucidate different aspects of PFM activation and therefore clarify the pathophysiology of stress urinary incontinence (SUI). A systematic review (PROSPERO 2016:CRD42016035624) was conducted to summarize current evidence on PFM activity during impact activities in both continent and incontinent women. METHODS: PubMed, EMBASE, Cochrane, and SPORTDiscus databases were systematically searched for studies published up to December 2016...
