OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to compare fixation and mobility of adjustable single-incision (Ajust) and standard transobturator midurethral sling (TVT-O) tapes based on postoperative ultrasound monitoring of the position of the tape at rest and at maximal Valsava (tape descent). The hypothesis was that fixation of SIMS Ajust is comparable to that achieved by the standard transobturator midurethral sling. SETTING: Gynecology and Obstetrics Department, GUH and 1st Charles University Prague; Gynecology and Obstetrics Department Masarykova nemocnice Ústí nad Labem...

PURPOSE: To assess the long-term patient-reported outcomes following TO-TVT as a secondary continence procedure in women with recurrent stress urinary incontinence (R-SUI). METHODS: A secondary analysis of the 9-year follow-up of the E-TOT study was performed: 341 women with predominant SUI symptoms were randomised to undergo either Inside-out or Outside-in TO-TVT between April 2005 and April 2007. Forty-six women had R-SUI following previously failed continence surgery at time of randomisation and are the basis of this analysis as a one single cohort...

A new building block ATVTA which uses stiff carbon-carbon triple bonds (A) on 1,2-di(2-thienyl)-ethene (TVT) is developed. For comparing the effect of the three building blocks, the oligothiophene derivatives S-01 with TVT unit, S-02 with 5,5'-diethynyl-2,2'-dithienyl (AT2) unit and S-03 with ATVTA were synthesized. Due to the better π-conjugation extension of TVT unit, S-01 exhibits the most red-shifted absorption profile among them and S-02 possesses the deepest HOMO level. While the HOMO level of S-03 is down-shifted by 0...

A new random copolymer consisting of similarly shaped donor-acceptor building blocks of diketopyrrolopyrrole-selenophene-vinylene-selenophene (DPP-SVS) and DPP-thiophene-vinylene-thiophene (DPP-TVT) is designed and synthesized. The resulting P-DPP-SVS(5)-TVT(5) with an equal molecular ratio of the two building blocks produced significantly enhanced solubility when compared to that of the two homopolymers, PDPP-SVS and PDPP-TVT. More importantly, despite the maximum segmental randomness of the PDPP-SVS(5)-TVT(5) copolymer, its crystalline perfectness and preferential orientation are outstanding, even similar to those of the homopolymers thanks to the similarity of the two building blocks...

This research aims to investigate the impact of fever on total mechanical ventilation time (TVT) in critically ill patients. Subgroup analysis was conducted using a previous prospective, multicenter observational study. We included mechanically ventilated patients for more than 24 hours from 10 Korean and 15 Japanese intensive care units (ICU), and recorded maximal body temperature under the support of mechanical ventilation (MAX(MV)). To assess the independent association of MAX(MV) with TVT, we used propensity-matched analysis in a total of 769 survived patients with medical or surgical admission, separately...

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...

Stress urinary incontinence is a very serious problem which has been noticed by the WHO. This difficult medical condition poses a serious problem as it affects c.a. 20% of the female population and it increases up to 35% in the group of females over 60 years of age. Since there is no single standard surgical procedure which could solve this problem, numerous synthetic materials are used for the operations. It seems that the materials are effective as they improve the condition of women suffering from stress urinary incontinence...
