The Effect of Gender-Affirming Medical Care on the Vaginal and Neovaginal Microbiomes of Transgender and Gender-Diverse People

A review of what is known of the epithelium and local microbiota of the testosterone-exposed vagina and the neovagina focuses on potential pathogens and determinants of gynecological health and identifies key knowledge gaps for future research.

Nile Tilapia Fish Skin, Scales, and Spine as Naturally Derived Biomaterials for Tissue Regeneration

This study aims to review the literature on the use of Nile tilapia-derived extracellular matrix (ECM) proteins as naturally derived scaffold material for tissue regeneration with a view to finding a satisfactory source of collagen for its quality and cost benefit.

Sexual health after vaginoplasty: A systematic review

Vaginoplasty is a gender‐affirming procedure for transgender and gender diverse (TGD) patients who experience gender incongruence. This procedure reduces mental health concerns and enhances patients’

Decellularized sturgeon cartilage extracellular matrix scaffold inhibits chondrocyte hypertrophy in vitro and in vivo

The test of the applicability of using decellularized sturgeon cartilage ECM (dSCECM) scaffold to cease chondrocyte hypertrophy during cartilage damage repair suggests that the d SCECM scaffold can be potentially applied in clinical treating cartilage defects via the CTE approach to avoid the risk of chond rocytehypertrophy.



Neovaginoplasty for radiation-induced vaginal stenosis using Nile Tilapia Fish Skin as a biological graft

Vaginal reconstruction with tilapia skin seems to be an excellent option for patients with radiation-induced vaginal stenosis due to its wide availability, easy application and high effectiveness.

Transgender vaginoplasty: techniques and outcomes.

A technique to penile inversion vaginoplasty is described and some of the critical steps of the procedure are focused on to try to optimize patient outcomes.
