AIMS The aim of the study is to evaluate the causes for artificial urinary sphincter (AUS) failure in a contemporary series, and to detect modifiable risk factors for device-related complications. The aim is to also report outcome after AUS revision. METHODS We retrospectively reviewed the medical records of consecutive patients who underwent AUS revision(More)
PURPOSE Bladder exstrophy is a major congenital anomaly involving defects in the genitourinary tract and pelvic musculoskeletal system. It appears intuitive that closure of the pelvic ring using osteotomy would be associated with a decreased risk of pelvic organ prolapse. We investigated whether osteotomy is associated with a decreased risk of pelvic organ(More)
PURPOSE We compared cuff sites and assessed anatomical and manometric differences between the transscrotal and perineal approaches to artificial urinary sphincter placement in fresh male cadavers. MATERIALS AND METHODS Artificial urinary sphincter implantation using perineal and transscrotal incisions was performed in 15 fresh male cadavers. The(More)
Introduction: We aim to report outcomes and predictors of outcome of transvaginal mesh (TVM) for pelvic organ prolapse (POP). We also report frequency, severity, risk factors, and management of mesh-related complications after TVM. Materials and Methods: We performed retrospective chart review of TVM performed from 2005 to 2010. There were 67 patients(More)
UNLABELLED WHAT'S KNOWN ON THE SUBJECT? AND WHAT DOES THE STUDY ADD?: Several studies in the paediatric literature have characterized the pelvic musculoskeletal anatomy of infants and children with bladder exstrophy using MRI and three-dimensional CT. The pelvic floor anatomy of female patients with bladder exstrophy who have undergone somatic growth and(More)
