This pilot study aimed to investigate the effectiveness of pelvic floor muscle training (PFMT) for the treatment of pelvic organ prolapse. Thirty-seven women with stage II prolapse were randomized to either the intervention group (n = 21) or the control group (n = 16). The evaluation included assessments of pelvic floor muscle function and surface(More)

This study seeks to compare the small intestine submucosa (SIS) graft with traditional colporrhaphy (TC) for surgical treatment of anterior vaginal prolapse. Subjects were randomly assigned to SIS (n = 29) or to TC (n = 27) preoperatively and outcomes analyzed at 12 months postoperatively. The primary outcome was the absence of POP-Q stage ≥ II prolapse,(More)
Uterine leiomyoma is the most frequent pelvic tumor found in female genital tract. Some studies have suggested an association between single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in estrogen receptors genes with susceptibility in developing uterine leiomyoma. In this work, we estimated the frequency of two SNPs: one located in the intron 1 (rs9322331) and other(More)
Pelvic floor muscle training (PFMT) is a treatment for stress urinary incontinence (SUI) that can be done individually or in a group. The aim of this study was to compare these two types of treatment. Sixty women 30 to 75 years old with SUI were randomly assigned to participate in the two groups. They were evaluated before and after the treatment with the(More)

The aim was to compare the efficacy and safety of single-incision sling TVT-Secur (TVT-S) and transobturator midurethral sling (TVT-O) for the treatment of stress urinary incontinence (SUI) over 2 years’ follow-up. This is a randomized controlled trial in which women with SUI were randomly assigned to have either TVT-O (n = 56) or TVT-S (n = 66). Exclusion(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the impact of pelvic floor muscle (PFM) training on the quality of life (QOL) in women with stress urinary incontinence (SUI). METHODS Prospective clinical trial with 36 women with a diagnosis of SUI confirmed by urodynamic study. Women with neuromuscular diseases, using hormone replacement therapy, and with prolapse stage III and IV(More)
PURPOSE To compare the effectiveness of pelvic floor exercises, electrical stimulation, vaginal cones, and no active treatment in women with urodynamic stress urinary incontinence. PATIENTS AND METHODS One hundred eighteen subjects were randomly selected to receive pelvic floor exercises (n=31), ES (n=30), vaginal cones (n=27), or no treatment (untreated(More)
The content and quality of type I collagen in the parametrium of women with and without uterine prolapse was evaluated. Forty-four consecutive patients were selected and divided into two groups: A, 21 women without uterine prolapse, and B, 23 with uterine prolapse. Patients in group A had uterine leiomyoma and were submitted to abdominal hysterectomy; in(More)
