Sissel Hegdahl Oversand, Anne C Staff, Ellen Borstad, Rune Svenningsen
INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: Classical native-tissue techniques for pelvic organ prolapse (POP) repairs, such as the Manchester procedure (MP), have been revitalized because of vaginal mesh complications. However, there are conflicting opinions regarding sufficient apical (mid-compartment) support by the MP and concerns about the risk of dyspareunia. The aims of this study were therefore to investigate anatomical and patient-reported outcomes 1 year after MP. METHODS: Prospective cohort study of 153 females undergoing an MP for anterior compartment POP between October 2014 and June 2016...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: The use of mesh for vaginal prolapse gained popularity during the 1990s. More recently, concerns have been raised regarding the safety of mesh procedures. Mesh can be inserted vaginally, laparoscopically or via an open abdominal route, but there are few data comparing the outcomes. Most previous published data relate to small numbers of procedures. METHODS: This was a review of data submitted to the British Society of Urogynaecology (BSUG) database of all cases reporting the use of mesh placed vaginally or abdominally (open or laparoscopic) between January 2006 and December 2016...

INTRODUCTION: The prevalence of pelvic organ prolapse (POP) with aging is escalating alarmingly, and now becoming a growing epidemic among the elderly. Synthetic transvaginal mesh (TVM) has been employed with increasing popularity in the treatment of POP until the end of the last decade. After the U.S. Drug and Food Administration (FDA) warnings in the years 2008 and 2011, the number of vaginal mesh operations has decreased dramatically. AIM: The aim of the study was to evaluate and compare the anti-POP effectivity, the anti-stress incontinence (anti-SUI) efficacy, and the late (36 months) post-operative complications of the anterior vaginoplasty and the TVM operations...

BACKGROUND: Posterior vaginal wall prolapse (also known as 'posterior compartment prolapse') can cause a sensation of bulge in the vagina along with symptoms of obstructed defecation and sexual dysfunction. Interventions for prevention and conservative management include lifestyle measures, pelvic floor muscle training, and pessary use. We conducted this review to assess the surgical management of posterior vaginal wall prolapse. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the safety and effectiveness of any surgical intervention compared with another surgical intervention for management of posterior vaginal wall prolapse...

Laparoscopic sacrocolpopexy (LSC) is attracting increasing attention as a minimally invasive surgery that provides excellent therapeutic effects on apical vaginal prolapse. However, its therapeutic effects on multi-compartmental pelvic organ prolapse (POP) remain unclear. Therefore, the aim of this review was to evaluate the efficacy of LSC on multi-compartmental POP compared with abdominal sacrocolpopexy (ASC). We extracted three articles on randomized controlled trials that compared LSC and ASC. A total of 247 patients (123 for LSC, 124 for ASC) were evaluated...

The need for more versatile technologies to deliver antiviral agents to the female reproductive tract (FRT) has spurred the development of on-demand and sustained-release platforms. Electrospun fibers (EFs), in particular, have recently been applied to FRT delivery, resulting in an alternative dosage form with the potential to provide protection and therapeutic effect against a variety of infection types. However, a multitude of fabrication parameters, as well as the resulting complexities of solvent-drug, drug-polymer, and solvent-polymer interactions, are known to significantly impact the loading and release of incorporated agents...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Women have an estimated 12.6% lifetime risk of undergoing surgery for pelvic organ prolapse in the USA (Wu et al. in Obstet Gynecol 123(6): 1201-6, 2014). Surgical repair of uterovaginal prolapse most commonly includes hysterectomy and vaginal vault suspension; however, the value of concomitant hysterectomy is uncertain, and there appears to be growing interest in uterine conservation. Multiple procedures have evolved using a variety of approaches. The aim of this paper is to review uterine sparing (hysteropexy) prolapse repair techniques and outcomes...

Midurethral mesh sling is the most performed incontinence procedure. This hypotheses propose knotless barbed suture could be positioned as a tension-free trans-vaginal sling under the mid-urethra without vaginal incision. Knotless suture sling support and stabilize mid-urethra when intraabdominal pressure increase. This procedure is designed to replace midurethral mesh sling operation, aiming at reducing complications. It is completed in a similar way with retropubic mesh sling procedure, and less invasive...
