CR Mesh Pelvic organ prolapses (POP) include genital prolapses (anterior and posterior colpocele, hysterocele, vault prolapse, and enterocele), anal prolapses (haemorrhoids, mucosal and rectal prolapse), and the so called internal prolapses of the terminal bowel (occult mucosal prolapse and rectal intussusception).  [Read More]

Abstract

THE IMPROVEMENT OF URINARY QOL AFTER THE TFS TENSIONED MINISLING OPERATIONS FOR ADVANCED PELVIC ORGAN PROLAPSE IN OUTPATIENT CLINIC - 1YEAR RESULTS by Yuki Sekiguchi1, Yoko Azekosi, Manami Kinjyo, Yoshiko Fujisima2, Yoshiko Maeda, Kaoru Kawaj And Hiromi Inoue, Yoshinobu Kubota3  ( 1Yokohama Motomachi Women's Clinic LUNA; 2 Urogynaecology Center, Shonan Kamakura General Hospital; 3 Urology, Yokohama City University Graduate School of Medicine)

urinary QOL The TFS is a "minisling device for stress urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse". It is made with two polypropylene plastic anchors attached to an adjustable nonstretch monofilament polyprolylene mesh tape. The TFS consists of the 4 prolonged anchors, its mode of action is like a grappling hook, and the one-way tensioning system.  [Read More]

Abstract

PROCEDURE SELECTION IN PELVIC ORGAN PROLAPSE SURGERY. SCIENCE, ART OR LUCK OF THE DRAW? by David Shaker  (Consultant Gynaecological Surgeon, Hillcrest Private Hospital Rockhampton, Australia)

procedure selection in pelvic organ Surgical procedures for treatment of uterovaginal prolapse are numerous. Failure and recurrence of prolapse drives the expansion of the available options for prolapse repair. However the bases for selection of any one or combination of the available procedures are not clear.  [Read More]

Abstract

SURGERY IN THE LONG-TERM MANAGEMENT OF OBSTETRIC ANAL SPHINTER INJURIESby Tony Eyers (Colorectal Surgeon, Macquarie University Hospital and Clinic, Sydney, Australia)

surgery in the long term Obstetric trauma rates highly as a cause of faecal incontinence managed by colorectal surgeons. We are rarely involved in immediate repairs following frank sphincter injuries - and I see no need for this to change. However we are often asked to perform delayed repairs and close associated rectovaginal fistulas.  [Read More]

Abstract

THE NEXT LAYER OF ANATOMY
by John Cartmill, David Butt  (Australian School of Advanced Medicine and Centre for Language in Social Life, Macquarie University, Sydney, Australia)

the language of operative surgery Anatomy is influenced by culture and technology. This was true in the sixteenth century when Vesalius called on the shipbuilding skills of the Venetians to create the University of Padova's elegantly tiered gallery and it is true as we fuse imaging, audiovisual and live surgical feed with the most modern anatomy laboratories. Even the inventive anatomy of Galen had a wisdom and relevance to it that reflected the culture and supported the (limited) therapeutic needs of his time  [Read More]

PELVIC FLOOR RECONSTRUCTION USING CR-MESH (A.M.I.) : PAST, PRESENT, FUTURE by Emanuela Mistrangelo  (Ginteam, Unit of Minimally Invasive Gynecology - Turin, Italy)

Urogynaecology in IndonesiaIntroduction The high recurrence rate of pelvic organ prolapse after traditional pelvic reconstructive surgery has been estimated to be up to 30%1.
