An experimental surgical study on human cadavers was undertaken to assess variability in the trajectory followed by the needle during application of the inside-out transobturator tape suspension (TVT-O) technique. The TVT-O surgical procedures were performed on six fresh female cadavers according to the standard recommended operative protocol. Subsequent(More)
The posterior intravaginal sling is a new tension-free needle suspension technique. It is used for the treatment of middle compartment (vaginal vault or uterine) prolapse. The Prolene sling suspends the vagina at the upper border of level II support as described by DeLancey (Am J Obstet Gynecol 166:1717, 1992). Human cadaveric dissections were undertaken to(More)
Management of pelvic organ prolapse (POP) may be conducted by abdominal (laparotomy or laparoscopy) or vaginal approach, with or without mesh repair, mainly depending on the surgeon’s expertise. The aim of this study was to determine the trends in surgical management of POP in French-speaking Belgium. The GGOLFB Gynecologic surgery working group initiated a(More)
The tracings of intra-uterine pressure changes that are made during normal labours in primiparous patients, whether the labours were normal or accelerated with oxytocin, were analysed using a semi-automatic time-lag with the help of system of 25 parameters. The classical data of pressures and of time have been made up with a study of the minima and maxima(More)
AIM To assess the anatomic effectiveness and complications of the Posterior IVS technique for the treatment of pelvic organ prolapse over a period of 3 years. METHODS A retrospective, single-arm, non-comparative study involving routine, standardised, pre-operative assessment, surgery and follow-up care using the Pelvic Organ Prolapse Quantifications score(More)
