INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: Uterine prolapse is common and has traditionally been treated by vaginal hysterectomy. Increasingly, women are seeking uterine-preserving alternatives. Laparoscopic hysteropexy offers resuspension of the uterus using polypropylene mesh. We report on 10 years' experience with this technique. METHODS: All hysteropexy procedures in our unit since 2006 were reviewed. Primary outcome was safety of hysteropexy, as assessed by intraoperative and major postoperative complications...

OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to profile patients who undergo defecography, by age and gender, as well as to describe the main imaging and diagnostic findings in this population. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This was a retrospective, descriptive study of 39 patients, conducted between January 2012 and February 2014. The patients were evaluated in terms of age, gender, and diagnosis. They were stratified by age, and continuous variables are expressed as mean ± standard deviation...

OBJECTIVE: To assess anatomic outcome and quality of life (QOL) after vaginal sacrocolporectopexy among patients with pelvic organ prolapse. METHODS: A noncomparative observational study was conducted at Hanover Medical School, Germany, among patients who underwent vaginal sacrocolporectopexy for uterine or vaginal vault prolapse between May 1, 2006, and October 31, 2012. A validated German version of the Prolapse QOL (P-QOL) questionnaire was sent to eligible patients; respondents were invited for follow-up examination...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: Hysterectomy is often performed at the time of pelvic organ prolapse (POP) surgery; yet, there is insufficient evidence regarding the specific effect of hysterectomy on outcomes. We sought to determine the outcomes and associated short-term complications of mesh-based POP surgery with and without concurrent hysterectomy. METHODS: We utilized the New York Statewide Planning and Research Cooperation System (SPARCS) database to identify patients under 55 years of age undergoing surgeries for POP with mesh between 2009 and 2014...

BACKGROUND: The use of mesh in prolapse surgery is controversial, leading to a number of enquiries into its safety and efficacy. OBJECTIVE: To compare synthetic non-absorbable mesh inlay, biological graft and mesh kit with a standard repair in terms of clinical effectiveness, adverse effects, quality of life (QoL), costs and cost-effectiveness. DESIGN: Two randomised controlled trials within a comprehensive cohort (CC) study. Allocation was by a remote web-based randomisation system in a 1 :1 : 1 ratio (Primary trial) or 1 : 1 : 2 ratio (Secondary trial), and was minimised on age, type of prolapse repair planned, need for a concomitant continence procedure, need for a concomitant upper vaginal prolapse procedure and surgeon...

BACKGROUND: Prelabour rupture of membranes (PROM) at term is managed expectantly or by planned early birth. It is not clear if waiting for birth to occur spontaneously is better than intervening, e.g. by inducing labour. OBJECTIVES: The objective of this review is to assess the effects of planned early birth (immediate intervention or intervention within 24 hours) when compared with expectant management (no planned intervention within 24 hours) for women with term PROM on maternal, fetal and neonatal outcomes...

Aims: The aim was to establish an official interdisciplinary guideline, published and coordinated by the German Society of Gynecology and Obstetrics (DGGG). The guideline was developed for use in German-speaking countries. In addition to the Germany Society of Gynecology and Obstetrics, the guideline has also been approved by the Swiss Society of Gynecology and Obstetrics (SGGG) and the Austrian Society of Gynecology and Obstetrics (OEGGG). This is a guideline published and coordinated by the DGGG. The aim is to provide evidence-based recommendations obtained by evaluating the relevant literature for the diagnostic, conservative and surgical treatment of women with female pelvic organ prolapse with or without stress incontinence...

BACKGROUND: Prophylactic Vitamin D supplementation is a common practice in Alpaca breeding in many regions around the world. An overdosage can lead to dystrophic mineralization of soft tissues. In this paper we illustrate a suspected case of hypervitaminosis D in an 8-year-old female Alpaca. CASE PRESENTATION: In June 2015, the carcass of an 8-year-old female Alpaca (Vicugna pacos) was submitted to the diagnostic laboratory of the Istituto Zooprofilattico Sperimentale delle Venezie (IZSVe) for necropsy...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: Uterine-sparing procedures could be attractive in patients concerned about fertility preservation and corporeal image changes. Transvaginal uterosacral ligaments (USLs) hysteropexy can provide a mesh-free technique for uterine suspension. This video is intended to serve as a tutorial for surgical steps. METHODS: A 38-year-old woman with symptomatic stage III POP desired preserving fertility. After proper counseling, the patient was admitted for vaginal hysteropexy through bilateral high USL suspension according to the featured technique...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: Pelvic organ prolapse (POP) recurrence after surgery is a major problem. POP that is more advanced preoperatively is associated with a higher risk of recurrence postoperatively. We hypothesized that women with a stage 2 cystocele differ from those with a stage 3 or 4 cystocele. The aim of this study was to compare the baseline characteristics of women with mild and those with more advanced cystocele. METHODS: Patients had participated in one of two multicenter prospective cohort studies on women undergoing conventional anterior colporrhaphy without previous POP surgery...

INTRODUCTION AND BACKGROUND: Vaginal surgery for the treatment of urinary stress incontinence (USI) and pelvic organ prolapse (POP) using a synthetic polypropylene mesh is going through a time of unprecedented turmoil and debate. This review focuses on vaginal surgery for vaginal prolapse and looks at the current scientific literature on issues surrounding surgery including consent and expectations. SAFETY AND EFFECTIVENESS OF SURGICAL OPTIONS: Synthetic mesh has been used both abdominally and vaginally to improve the effectiveness of POP surgery...

Objective: The aim of this review was to describe the risk factors, clinical and radiographic criteria, and management of this rare complication of pregnancy. Methods: A PubMed, Web of Science, and CINAHL search was undertaken with no limitations on the number of years searched. Results: There were 60 articles identified, with 53 articles being the basis of this review. Multiple risk factors have been suggested in the literature including retroverted uterus in the first trimester, deep sacral concavity with an overlying sacral promontory, endometriosis, previous abdominal or pelvic surgery, pelvic or uterine adhesions, ovarian cysts, leiomyomas, multifetal gestation, uterine anomalies, uterine prolapse, and uterine incarceration in a prior pregnancy...

OBJECTIVE: Uterine rupture is a rare but serious obstetric complication. However, prediction and diagnosis at an early stage remain difficult. Herein, we report a case of primary uterine rupture found earlier by a specific symptom. CASE REPORT: A 29-year-old patient was scheduled to undergo a cesarean section (CS) due to placenta previa. However, at Week 35, she began experiencing abdominal pain and uterine contractions. Subsequently, she began experiencing severe pain, which was enhanced by fetal movements...

Based on the available urogynecological literature, the role of hysterectomy in the surgical strategy of pelvic organ prolapse (POP) repair remains controversial. Currently, there are no data to favor either the removal or preservation of the uterus in women with POP. The findings that hysterectomy may contribute to a higher success rate and to the development of urinary incontinence and/or female sexual dysfunction are not supported by evidence. It is not clear why both hysteropexy was sometimes performed in the presence of overt uterine prolapse and/or concomitant vaginal hysterectomy was often included in vaginal prolapse repair in the absence of uterine prolapse...

: STUDY OBJECTIVE: To determine whether vertical versus horizontal closure of the vaginal cuff during laparoscopic hysterectomy has an effect on postoperative vaginal length and pelvic organ prolapse. DESIGN: A prospective randomized controlled trial. Subjects were randomly assigned to vertical or horizontal vaginal cuff closure at the time of total laparoscopic hysterectomy. Pelvic organ prolapse quantization (POP-Q) tests were performed before surgery, 2 to 4 weeks after surgery, and 3 to 4 months after surgery (Canadian Task Force classification I)...
