Editorial Urogynecology in China by Qing-Kai Wu, Lai-Min Luo

Neurourology Is tolterodine as effective as oxybutynin in overactive bladder caused by spinal cord injury? by Elena Andretta, Bruno Bonadimani, Mauro Pastorello, Enrico Cossaro, Giorgio Artuso

Is tolterodine as effective as oxybutynin in overactive bladder caused by spinal cord injury?Many neurourologists consider oxybutynin (OX) more effective than tolterodine (TL) in the treatment of the overactive bladder caused by the sovrasacral spinal cord injury (SCI) in the picture of the detrusor-sphincter dyssinergy (DESD). In DESD the antimuscarinics are usually used to abolish detrusor contractions in order to permit voidings by clean intermittent catheterism (CIC). However, in literature there is no a clear and well established evidence although these drugs were mainly compared in idiopathic overactive bladder or in a few and different types of neurogenic overactive bladder. [More]

Case report Prospective study on 185 females with urinary incontinence treated by an outside-in transobturator suburethral sling by Thibaut Castaings, Nicolas Abello, Doctor Emmanuel Delorme

rospective study on 185 females with urinary incontinence
treated byIn 2001 we described and published information on the first group of patients treated for stress urinary incontinence by the implantation of a transobturator sling to treat stress urinary incontinence (SUI). The initial objective of the transobturator sling was to use synthetic tape to reproduce the suburethral fascia described by Delancey. In 1998, we used suburethral slings sutured to the obturator external muscle, at the level of the tendinous arch on both sides of the urethra.  [More]

Most tape complications consist of vaginal erosions, but urethral and undetected bladder perforations have also been reported.  [More]
