Pelvic floor muscle strength predicts stress urinary incontinence in primiparous women after vaginal delivery
Introduction and hypothesisThis study aimed to investigate obstetrical, neonatal, and clinical predictors of stress urinary incontinence (SUI) focusing on pelvic floor muscle (PFM) strength afterExpand
Human eosinophil-airway smooth muscle cell interactions.
Eosinophils are present throughout the airway wall of asthmatics. The nature of the interaction between human airway smooth muscle cells (ASMC) and eosinophils was investigated in this study. WeExpand
Six‐Minute Walk Test in Patients With Permanent Cardiac Pacemakers
PURPOSE The 6-minute walk test (6MWT) is a simple and reliable method routinely used in the evaluation of many conditions including cardiac diseases. However, it is rarely performed in patients withExpand
Predicting stress urinary incontinence in primiparous women who underwent vaginal delivery using a classification tree approach.
Hypothesis / aims of study Vaginal delivery (VD) has been recognized as potentially traumatic to the pelvic floor (PF) and may lead to stress urinary incontinence (SUI) [1]. Studies have beenExpand
Implementation of a protocol to guide obstetricians on the need to refer obstetric patients to Physiotherapy
Hypothesis / aims of study: There are many studies that show the relevance of obstetric physical therapy in pregnant women for the prevention of pelvic floor dysfunction. According to a systematicExpand
Digital muscle testing and vaginal squeeze pressure measurements: can these be interchangeable when assessing pelvic floor muscle function of continent and incontinent primiparous women?
Hypothesis / aims of study Evidence of positive effects of pelvic floor muscle training (PFMT) to the prevention and treatment of SUI in women after VD is increasing, turning postpartum assessment ofExpand
