Pudendal neuralgia following transobturator inside-out tape procedure (TVT-O)-case report and anatomical study.
Summary of "Pudendal neuralgia following transobturator inside-out tape procedure (TVT-O)-case report and anatomical study."
Persistent pain after TVT-O procedure is a rare complication. Nerve injuries have been suspected as a cause of persistent pain. We present one case of atypical postoperative pain-pudendal neuralgia following TVT-O procedure-which persisted 3 years after the primary procedure. The patient required surgical removal of the tape, which brought only partial relief. Complete relief from pain was afterwards achieved with repeated local applications of anesthetics with corticosteroids. The recurrent stress urinary incontinence was treated with retropubic TVT. Pudendal nerve irritation was also described after retropubic sling procedure, and the cadaveric dissection indicated the theoretic possibility of nerve injury during retropubic sling procedure. To explain the mechanism of nerve injury, we performed cadaveric dissections on a formalin-embalmed female body. We were able to demonstrate the contact of the needle with the pudendal nerve after aberrant passage of the inserter.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Adhesive tape with the mechanical strength to resist stretching. It is applied to the skin to support, stabilize, and restrict movement to aid healing and/or prevent injuries of MUSCULOSKELETAL SYSTEM.
Recording of information on magnetic or punched paper tape.
A surgical procedure in which an undescended testicle is sutured inside the SCROTUM in male infants or children to correct CRYPTORCHIDISM. Orchiopexy is also performed to treat TESTICULAR TORSION in adults and adolescents.
Swollen veins in the lower part of the RECTUM or ANUS. Hemorrhoids can be inside the anus (internal), under the skin around the anus (external), or protruding from inside to outside of the anus. People with hemorrhoids may or may not exhibit symptoms which include bleeding, itching, and pain.
A set of surgical procedures performed to establish sufficient outflow to the systemic circulation in individuals with univentricular congenital heart malformations, such as HYPOPLASTIC LEFT HEART SYNDROME, and MITRAL VALVE atresia, associated with systemic outflow obstruction. Follow-on surgeries may be performed and consist of a HEMI-FONTAN PROCEDURE as the stage 2 Norwood procedure and a FONTAN PROCEDURE as the stage 3 Norwood procedure.
Pudendal neuralgia is a neuropathic disease which is predominantly caused by pelvic trauma with pressure or stretching strain of the pudendal nerve. The Nantes criteria are used for the differential d...
INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: The objective of this study was to evaluate the modification of a shortened tape and reduced dissection of the inside-out transobturator procedure on the tape's relationsh...
INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: The aim of this study is to compare a modified inside-out transobturator procedure with its original counterpart [inside-out transobturator (TVT-O)] for the treatment of f...
The transobturator tape operation has been the most popular method of SUI surgery worldwide owing to its low complication rate and high success rate. However, erosions and abscesses secondary to trans...
INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: The purpose of this study is to compare retropubic tension-free vaginal tape (TVT) with transobturator out-in TOT and in-out TVT-O for female stress urinary incontinence....
The so-called tension-free vaginal tape (TVT), first described in Sweden in 1996, has become a standard operation worldwide for the treatment of women with stress urinary incontinence. Thi...
Pudendal neuralgia is a recent identified pathology, extremely invalidating, related to chronic pelvic entrapment. Nowadays, pudendal neuralgia can be treated with: - neuropathic pains...
The midurethral tension-free vaginal tape (a macroporous polypropylene mesh) procedure is a well established technique for treating female stress urinary incontinence in patients with (hyp...
The incidence of anterior pelvic defect in women is estimated about 10% and it may be often associated to urinary stress incontinence. To date the correction of anterior defects with the u...
