    Title Risk Factors for Mesh Erosion 3 Months Following Vaginal Reconstructive Surgery Using Commercial Kits Vs. Fashioned Mesh-augmented Vaginal Repairs.
    Date April 2010
    Journal International Urogynecology Journal and Pelvic Floor Dysfunction
    Excerpt

    Our objective was to establish the overall graft erosion rate in a synthetic graft-augmented repair 3 months postoperatively.

    Title Modified Thiele Massage As Therapeutic Intervention for Female Patients with Interstitial Cystitis and High-tone Pelvic Floor Dysfunction.
    Date November 2005
    Journal Urology
    Excerpt

    OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the effectiveness of transvaginal manual therapy of the pelvic floor musculature (Thiele massage) in symptomatic female patients with interstitial cystitis and high-tone dysfunction of the pelvic floor. METHODS: A total of 21 women with documented interstitial cystitis and high-tone pelvic floor dysfunction underwent transvaginal massage using the Thiele technique twice a week for 5 weeks. Symptoms were evaluated before massage, at protocol conclusion, and at a mean of 4.5 months after therapy completion (long-term follow-up). The response to treatment was evaluated through the O'Leary-Sant Interstitial Cystitis Symptom and Problem Indexes, Likert Visual Analogue Scales for urgency and pain, and Short-Form 12-item (SF-12) Quality-of-Life Scale, and through changes in the physical examination findings using a 5-point modified Oxford Scale to document pelvic floor tenderness. RESULTS: A statistically significant improvement was seen in the Symptom and Problem Indexes of the O'Leary-Sant Questionnaire (P = 0.015 and P = 0.039, respectively), Likert Visual Analogue Scales for urgency and pain (P = 0.001 and P = 0.005, respectively), the Physical and Mental Component Summary from the SF-12 Quality-of-Life Scale (P = 0.049 and P = 0.044, respectively), and the modified Oxford Scale (P <0.05) after protocol completion. At long-term follow-up, the O'Leary-Sant Interstitial Cystitis Symptom and Problem Indexes (P = 0.049 and P = 0.02, respectively), Likert Visual Analogue Scales for urgency and pain (P = 0.004 and P = 0.005, respectively), and modified Oxford Scale for three of four muscles in the pelvic floor (P <0.05) remained significantly improved. CONCLUSIONS: Thiele massage appears to be very helpful in improving irritative bladder symptoms in patients with interstitial cystitis and high-tone pelvic floor dysfunction in addition to decreasing pelvic floor muscle tone.

    Title The Distance Between the Perceived and the Actual Arcus Tendineus Fascia Pelvis During Vaginal Paravaginal Repair.
    Date June 2005
    Journal American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology
    Excerpt

    OBJECTIVE: This study was undertaken to determine whether the arcus tendineus fascia pelvis (ATFP) can be accurately identified from the paravaginal space (PVS) without entering the retropubic space (RPS). STUDY DESIGN: Eight patients undergoing vaginal paravaginal repair were enrolled. The paravaginal dissection was completed to the most cephalad portion of the PVS without entering the RPS. The apex of each PVS was stained with methylene blue. The RPS was entered, the ATFP visualized, and 4 sutures were placed along its length to be used for the repair. The perpendicular distance between each suture and the most cephalad area of stain was measured. RESULTS: The mean distance from the perceived to actual ATFP at each suture point (1-4) was 3.5 cm, 2.75 cm, 2.0 cm, and 0.91 cm, respectively. CONCLUSION: In these 8 cases, the RPS had to be entered to accurately identify the ATFP. The degree of error increases as the ischial spine is approached (P < .001).

    Title Metastatic Colon Carcinoma Found Within an Enterocele Sac: a Case Report.
    Date May 2005
    Journal International Urogynecology Journal and Pelvic Floor Dysfunction
    Excerpt

    The incidental finding of cancer in a hernial sac is rare, but there are many case reports in the literature. There has never been a report of carcinoma found in an enterocele sac. We present the case of a 77-year-old female with symptomatic pelvic organ prolapse who presented for reconstructive pelvic surgery and was found to have metastatic adenocarcinoma contained within an enterocele sac. Incidental diagnosis of asymptomatic carcinoma found on typically discarded tissue from surgical procedures is rare. However, routine pathologic review of all tissue removed from a patient may save a life if carcinoma is found early.

    Title Reduction Clitoroplasty: a Technique for Debulking the Enlarged Clitoris.
    Date May 2005
    Journal Journal of Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecology
    Excerpt

    Clitoral reduction, especially in an adult, is a rare procedure which often leaves the glans clitoris without the capacity for tactile sensation. We present the case of a 34-year-old woman with symptomatic clitoromegaly since puberty who underwent a clitoral reduction procedure designed to preserve the neurovascular supply of the glans clitoris. The surgical technique presented here removes the corpora cavernosa of the clitoris, but conserves important neurovascular attachments. While this procedure was done on an adult, it could just as easily be performed on children or adolescents with clitoromegaly, typically the at-risk group for this condition.

    Title Interstitial Cystitis and Pelvic Floor Dysfunction: a Comprehensive Review.
    Date May 2004
    Journal Pain Medicine (malden, Mass.)
    Excerpt

    Interstitial cystitis is a clinical condition occurring predominantly in women and is characterized by urinary frequency, urgency, and pain. Patient symptoms have the potential to significantly affect quality of life, posing a challenge to some to perform activities of daily living. This article comprehensively reviews the literature on the epidemiology, etiology, evaluation, and treatment of interstitial cystitis, and considers commonly associated pelvic floor dysfunction.

    Title The Efficacy of Calcium Glycerophosphate in the Prevention of Food-related Flares in Interstitial Cystitis.
    Date March 2002
    Journal Urology
    Title Postoperative Urinary Retention Following Vaginal Mesh Procedures for the Treatment of Pelvic Organ Prolapse.
    Date
    Journal International Urogynecology Journal and Pelvic Floor Dysfunction
    Excerpt

    The objective of the study was to assess vaginal mesh procedures and patient characteristics that are associated with postoperative urinary retention (PUR) following pelvic reconstructive surgery.
