OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to explore the nature and rate of surgical intervention after transvaginal Prolift mesh repair for pelvic organ prolapse. STUDY DESIGN This was a retrospective study of all patients who underwent Prolift mesh repair between January 2005 and January 2009. Patient data were obtained from medical records, and patients were(More)
OBJECTIVE To comparatively define the biomechanical characteristics of the pelvic organs (the vagina, bladder, and rectum), which are crucial for the maintenance of pelvic support. Despite minimal fundamental studies, meshes are increasingly implanted into the vesicovaginal and rectovaginal spaces to replace disrupted native tissues and to treat pelvic(More)
Surgical treatment for stress urinary incontinence (SUI) using transobturator tape insertion is widely accepted. However, several postoperative complications were reported in the literature including infections, abscess and fistula formation. Here, we report a case of 57-year-old female who presented with abscess and left vaginocutaneous buttock fistula 7(More)
To understand the mechanical behavior of soft tissues, two fields of science are essential: biomechanics and histology. Nonetheless, those two fields have not yet been studied together often enough to be unified by a comprehensive model. This study attempts to produce such model. Biomechanical uniaxial tension tests were performed on vaginal tissues from 7(More)
