This study aimed to determine the relationship of recurrent cystocele with avulsion of puborectalis muscle and other risk factors. In this prospective observational cohort study, 245 women undergoing anterior colporrhaphy were invited for a 2-year follow-up visit consisting of a questionnaire, physical examination, and translabial 3D ultrasonography. Women(More)
Transgenic APP23 mice were generated to model Alzheimer's disease. The APP23 model develops pathological features, learning deficits, and memory deficits analogous to dementing patients. In this report, transgenic mice exhibited several behavioral disturbances indicating the presence of neuropsychiatric symptoms of dementia. Aiming to verify whether the(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to evaluate the incidence of local recurrence after SSM with IBR and to determine whether complications lead to postponement of adjuvant therapy. METHOD Patients that underwent IBR after SSM between 2004 and 2011 were included. RESULTS A total of 157 reconstruction procedures were performed in 147 patients for(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to evaluate whether the association between short interpregnancy intervals and perinatal outcome varies with maternal age. STUDY DESIGN We performed a retrospective cohort study among 263,142 Dutch women with second deliveries that occurred between 2000 and 2007. Outcome variables were preterm delivery (<37 weeks of(More)
While marginal models, random-effects models, and conditional models are routinely considered to be the three main modeling families for continuous and discrete repeated measures with linear and generalized linear mean structures, respectively, it is less common to consider non-linear models, let alone frame them within the above taxonomy. In the latter(More)
In chronic low back pain (CLBP) research, the self-discrepancy model has been applied to explain dysfunctional avoidance and persistence behaviour. The main aim of this study was to evaluate whether specific self-discrepancies in patients with CLBP are associated with the abovementioned types of activity-related behaviour and whether changes in(More)
BACKGROUND The transition from persistent to permanent atrial fibrillation (AF) is associated with increased complexity of fibrillatory conduction. We have investigated the spatial distribution of fibrillation waves and structural alterations in the atrial free walls in a goat model of AF. METHODS AND RESULTS AF was maintained for 3 weeks (short term(More)
PURPOSE We evaluated whether bilateral sacral nerve stimulation can be effective to restore treatment efficacy in patients in whom unilateral sacral neuromodulation fails. MATERIALS AND METHODS Patients in whom unilateral sacral neuromodulation failed were included in analysis. The percutaneous nerve evaluation test was used to evaluate the effect of(More)
BACKGROUND Optimal surgical management of digital nerve lesions remains uncertain despite the publication of numerous studies. The purposes of this review were primarily to analyze whether there is a superior surgical technique for digital nerve repair and secondarily to statistically verify the variables to be predictors of sensory recovery. METHODS A(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of the present study is to determine the presence and severity of symptoms of anxiety and depression in patients with oropharyngeal dysphagia who visit the outpatient clinic for dysphagia. METHODS Symptoms of anxiety and depression (affective symptoms) were prospectively assessed in 96 patients using the validated Hospital Anxiety and(More)
