AIMS To assess the technical feasibility of a new mini-invasive sling procedure (MiniArc) and present short-term results in the treatment of female urinary incontinence. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 97 women with mixed or stress urinary incontinence (SUI) were treated by placement of the new single-incision sling. Pelvic organ prolapse was graded(More)
To retrospectively analyze the outcome of surgery in women followed up for 1 year after vaginal repair with the Apogee® (support of posterior vaginal wall) or Perigee® (support of anterior vaginal wall) system. A total of 120 patients with recurrent cystocele and/or rectocele or with combined vaginal vault prolapse were treated by either posterior or(More)
PURPOSE Evaluate the benefits of electromotive drug administration (EMDA) as an alternative technique in patients with chronic overactive bladder in terms of improvement of symptoms, quality of life, and sexuality. MATERIAL AND METHODS A total of 72 patients with therapy-refractory overactive bladder according to the ICS (International Continence Society)(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate whether the sonographically measured size of the mesh implant in women who had undergone vaginal polypropylene mesh repair 6 weeks previously correlates with the original size of the mesh and whether the mesh ensures complete support of the anterior or posterior compartment. METHODS Forty postmenopausal women with anterior or(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the topography of the bladder neck by introital ultrasound before and after open colposuspension. METHODS Three hundred and ten women with urodynamically proven stress urinary incontinence were included in this long-term study to investigate the position and function of the bladder neck at rest and during straining. Height (H),(More)
PURPOSE To analyze the technical success rate, incidence and type of peri-interventional complications, and radiation exposure of uterine artery embolization (UAE) in symptomatic leiomyomas of the uterus. MATERIALS AND METHODS This prospective study includes 75 patients consecutively treated with UAE from October 2000 through August 2002, with all(More)
Uterine artery embolization (UAE) as an alternative to surgery for the treatment of uterine fibroids and adenomyosis uteri became increasingly popular. While the clinical success of this new treatment strategy is without doubt, there is still considerable uncertainty with respect to the morphologic changes induced by UAE. In this study, a total of 173 women(More)
OBJECTIVE It is not always possible to clearly differentiate the symptoms of overactive bladder and interstitial cystitis. A prospective randomized study was performed to determine whether instillation of sodium chondroitin sulphate for treatment of interstitial cystitis is also effective in treating overactive bladder. The expected benefit of this(More)
OBJECTIVE The incidence of urethral funneling (UF) seen in women with stress urinary incontinence (SUI) during straining is reported to range from 18.6% to 97.4%. Its morphologic basis is unknown. The aim of the present study was to determine whether SUI patients with and without UF differ in terms of history, urodynamic results and magnetic resonance(More)
