There is little data comparing the surgical outcomes of tension-free vaginal tape (TVT) and transobturator tape (TOT) procedures in obese women. Therefore, we aimed to compare the surgical outcomes of TOT and TVT procedures among obese women with a diagnosis of stress urinary incontinence (SUI). One hundred and eighty-nine women who underwent TVT or TOT procedures due to pure SUI were included. Women in whom the body mass index (BMI) was ≥30 kg/m(2) were considered as obese, while <30 kg/m(2) were non-obese...

AIM: The aim of this study was to compare the outcome of two single-incision mini-slings (the Contasure-Needleless [C-NDL] and the endopelvic free anchorage) with the standard midurethral transobturator tension-free vaginal tape (TVT-O) procedure. METHODS: A double blind randomized controlled study was conducted at Ain Shams University Maternity Hospital from August 2014 until July 2015. A total of 209 patients were randomized into three groups. The first group underwent the TVT-O procedure, the second group underwent the endopelvic free anchorage procedure and the third group underwent the C-NDL procedure...

AIMS: To evaluate subjective and objective outcome after repeat surgery for stress urinary incontinence (SUI). METHODS: Patients who underwent a midurethral tape after failed Burch colposuspension or failed midurethal tape between 1999 and 2014 were invited for follow-up. Urogynecological examination and urodynamics was performed, and objective cure was defined as a negative cough stress test; subjective cure was defined as negotiation of SUI symptoms. Quality-of-life (QoL), sexual health, and subjective success was assessed with the King's Health Questionnaire, Incontinence Outcome Questionnaire, Female Sexual Function Index, and the Patient Global Impression of Improvement (PGI-I) score...

OBJECTIVE: Voiding dysfunction following a midurethral sling procedure is still a relevant consequence that can affect patients' quality of life. Various invasive methods have been described to manage this problem. We hypothesize that we if we could diagnose the condition early using noninvasive tools, we would be able to offer appropriate effective management. We sought to study the effectiveness of attaching a tension-releasing suture on a single-incision sling (SIS) tape as a prophylactic measure for the treatment of immediate postoperative voiding dysfunctions, and secondarily, to evaluate the objective and subjective cure rates of the treatment for stress urinary incontinence...

BACKGROUND: One subjective long-term evaluation of the tension-free vaginal tape (TVT) success rate in obese women showed a worse prognosis in the obese, but objective studies have been limited to short-term follow-up (less than two years). AIM: To determine whether the long-term objective cure rate in obese/morbidly obese women who underwent TVT was reduced, compared to non-obese women (at five or more years). MATERIALS AND METHODS: Body mass index (BMI) was collected on patients undergoing TVT procedure...

UNLABELLED: We present a simple technique for patterning Au top electrodes in vertical molecular junction devices that have the conductive polymer, poly(3,4-ethylene dioxythiophene)-poly(4-styrene sulfonate) ( PEDOT: PSS), as a contact layer between the self-assembled monolayer and the Au top electrode. In this method, a thermally curable photoresist of SU-8 is used to define the areas where the top electrodes are formed. The hydrophobicity and low surface energy of the cured SU-8 facilitates selective deposition of PEDOT: PSS onto the defined top electrode areas of the device through solution dewetting, and also enables the physical peeling of the Au top electrodes deposited on the SU-8 layers using an adhesion tape...

BACKGROUND: Long-term outcomes of the tension-free vaginal tape (TVT) procedure are needed to assess its efficacy. METHODS: This was a cross-sectional study of the subjective outcome in patients with stress urinary incontinence (SUI) operated on consecutively by a single surgeon. Success was defined as the absence of SUI at the time of the study. The validated questionnaires Urogenital Distress Inventory-6 (UDI-6) and Incontinence Impact Questionnaire (IIQ-7) were used to find the minimum important difference (MID) to support subjective reports of success...

Keloids and hypertrophic scars are fibroproliferative disorders of the skin that are caused by abnormal healing of injured or irritated skin. It is possible that they are both manifestations of the same fibroproliferative skin disorder and just differ in terms of the intensity and duration of inflammation. These features may in turn be influenced by genetic, systemic, and local risk factors. Genetic factors may include single nucleotide polymorphisms, while systemic factors may include hypertension, pregnancy, hormones, and cytokines...

While there is no proven cure for lipoedema, early detection is key as specialist treatments, complemented by self-management techniques, can improve symptoms and prevent progression. There is no universal approach as the correct treatment or treatments will depend on each patient's particular circumstances; however, when chosen early and appropriately, interventions can provide huge benefits. The most common treatments in the management of lipoedema include compression, manual lymphatic drainage (MLD), tumescent liposuction, intermittent pneumatic compression therapy (IPC), kinesio taping, deep oscillation therapy, and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT)...

The tension-free vaginal tape (TVT) retropubic sling is a very effective treatment for stress urinary incontinence. High cure rates are typically achieved, and the reported complication rate is relatively low. Obturator neuralgia secondary to insertion of a midurethral sling is a rare and specific type of chronic pain that is more commonly associated with transobturator tape slings. The purpose of this video case report was to demonstrate that obturator nerve injury is a possible complication of TVT retropubic slings placement...
