AIMS: Stress urinary incontinence (SUI) is a common problem worldwide. Mainstream surgical procedures include tension-free vaginal tape (TVT), transobturator tape (TOT), tension-free vaginal tape-obturator (TVT-O), tension-free vaginal tape SECUR (TVT-S), and adjustable single-incision sling (Ajust). The aim of this study was to compare the efficacy and safety of these surgical procedures and assess which surgery is most optimal for SUI by adopting a network meta-analysis (NMA). METHODS: Electronic databases including PubMed, Cochrance Library, and Embase database were researched systematically, until March 21, 2017...

A series of naphthalene diimide (NDI)-based small molecules were synthesized as nonfullerene acceptors and incorporated in all-small-molecule solar cells. Three NDI-based small molecules, NDICN-T, NDICN-BT, and NDICN-TVT, were designed with different linkers between two NDI units to induce the different conjugation length and modulate the geometric structures of the NDI dimers. The small NDI-based dimer electron acceptors with slip-stacked structures that facilitate π-π stacking interactions and/or hinder excessive aggregation exhibited different morphological behaviors, such as miscibility or crystallinity in bulk heterojunction blends with 7,7'-(4,4-bis(2-ethylhexyl)-4H-silolo[3,2-b:4,5-b']dithiophene-2,6-diyl)bis(6-fluoro-4-(5'-hexyl-[2,2'-bithiophen]-5-yl)benzo[c][1,2,5]thiadiazole) (DTS-F) electron donors...

BACKGROUND: The Integral Theory (IT) states that urinary stress and urge symptoms mainly arise from lax suspensory ligaments, which are a consequence of altered collagen/elastin. Four important muscle groups (pubococcygeal muscle, levatorplate, longitudinal muscle of the anus, and the puborectalis muscle) are only able to guarantee the opening and closure mechanism of the bladder, the urethra and the anal tube if the suspensory ligaments are intact. The first practical application of the IT was the repair of the pubourethral ligament (PUL) known as tension-free vaginal tape (TVT)...
