The objective of this study was to compare the anatomical and quality of life outcomes of a posterior polypropylene mesh kit versus sacrospinous ligament fixation at the time of hysterectomy for the treatment of uterine prolapse. Thirty-two women aged 50 to 75 years with stage III or IV (pelvic organ prolapse quantification system/International Continence(More)
This study aims to report pelvic nerve damage secondary to surgical treatment of pelvic organ prolapse and the role of laparoscopy in the diagnosis and treatment of such nerve damage. Ninety-five consecutive patients complaining of pain and/or bladder or bowel dysfunction following surgery for pelvic prolapse underwent laparoscopic exploration for pelvic(More)
OBJECTIVE Pelvic organ prolapse is a disorder caused by the imbalance between the forces responsible for supporting the pelvic organs in their normal position and those that tend to expel them from the pelvis. Anterior vaginal wall prolapse, known as cystocele, is the most common form of prolapse and can result from lesions in different topographies of the(More)
The primary aim of this study was to evaluate the inter-examiner agreement of a previously described simplified pelvic organ prolapse quantification (S-POP) system in a multicenter, prospective, randomized, blinded fashion. Pelvic organ prolapse quantification (POPQ) system’s use in daily practice is hampered due to perceived complexity and difficulty of(More)
For many years, researchers on this field have suffered from the lack of an efficient method for describing pelvic organ prolapse. Struggling to solve this problem, the International Continence Society has proposed a pelvic organ prolapse quantification (POP-Q) system [Bump RC, Mattiasson A, Bo K, Brubaker LP, DeLancey JO, Klarskov P, Shull B, Smith ARB, Am(More)
In this retrospective observational study involving 176 patients and 271 biopsies, the histologic differentiation in superficial endometriosis, deeply infiltrating endometriosis, and ovarian endometriomas was evaluated according to a previously proposed classification system. Results showed a predominance of the undifferentiated glandular pattern (33.5%)(More)
It is long known that a large portion of the lumbosacral plexus is located intra-abdominally, in the retroperitoneal space. However, most of literature descriptions of lesions on this plexus refer to its extra-abdominal parts whereas its intra-abdominal portions are often neglected. The objective of this review article is to describe the laparoscopic(More)
Even though very precise at describing pelvic organ position, our criticism to the Pelvic Organ Prolapse Quantification (POP-Q) system is its limited ability to quantify the prolapse itself, since it still classifies prolapse into four stages, almost the same way as Baden and Walker (Clin Obstet Gynecol 15(4):1070–1072, 1972) did in 1972. As a result, the(More)
Endometriosis infiltrating the sacral nerve roots is a rarely reported manifestation of the disease. The objectives of this article are to report such a case and to describe the surgical technique for laparoscopic decompression of sacral nerve roots and treatment of endometriosis at this site. The patient as a 38-year-old woman who had undergone 2 previous(More)
Pelvic congestion syndrome is a well-known cause of cyclic pelvic pain (Ganeshan et al., Cardiovasc Intervent Radiol 30(6):1105–11, 2007). What is much less well known is that dilated or malformed branches of the internal or external iliac vessels can entrap the nerves of the sacral plexus against the pelvic sidewalls, producing symptoms that are not(More)
