This investigation describes the feasibility and outcome of vaginal paravaginal repair (VPVR) performed using the Capio™ suture-capturing device.
This prospective study included 36 women with paravaginal fascial defects, symptomatic stage II to IV anterior vaginal wall prolapse, and uterine prolapse equal or more than stage 2. VPVR was performed using the Capio device. In addition, anterior colporrhaphy, posterior colporrhaphy, and vaginal hysterectomy were performed.
The mean time required to perform the VPVR was 12.9 min (range, 11-18 min). The median blood loss during the VPVR was 35 ml (range, 20-65 ml). There were no major intraoperative complications. At 2-year follow-up, the rate of recurrent anterior vaginal wall prolapse (stage ≥2) was 8.6%.
VPVR performed using the Capio device is associated with minimal dissection of the tissues, blood loss, and operating time and has low recurrence rate at 2-year follow-up.

The paravaginal defect has been a topic of active discussion concerning what it is, how to diagnose it, its role in anterior vaginal wall prolapse, and if and how to repair it. The aim of this article...
To test the null hypothesis that six factors representing potential fascial and muscular failure sites contribute equally to the presence and size of a cystocele: two vaginal attachment factors (apica...
To quantify how increasing interportal capsulotomy size affects the force required to distract the hip and to biomechanically compare simple side-to-side suture repair to acetabular-based suture ancho...
Injuries to the posterolateral corner (PLC) of the knee can lead to chronic degenerative changes, external rotation instability, and varus instability if not repaired adequately. A proximal fibula avu...
Vaginal cuff dehiscence is a rare complication of hysterectomies which seems to be more frequent after surgery with laparoscopic suture of the cuff. We present a clinical case of evisceration of the s...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether vaginal repair or abdominal repair is the procedure of choice for the surgical management of a prolapsed bladder.
The purpose of this study is determine whether grafted anterior vaginal prolapse repair is more effective and associated with less complications than prolapse repair with suture.
The aim of this study is to show that the performance of Novosyn® Quick suture material is comparable with other suture material used for episiotomy. In order to show that, various safety...
Compare operative times and complications of sacral colpopexy and paravaginal repair between two-dimensional and three-dimensional laparoscopic systems.
The purpose of the present study is to investigate whether or not the use of mesh is indicated in the repair of all size umbilical hernias as to reduce the rate of recurrence. This method ...
Implants used in arthroscopic surgery and other orthopedic procedures to attach soft tissue to bone. One end of a suture is tied to soft tissue and the other end to the implant. The anchors are made of a variety of materials including titanium, stainless steel, or absorbable polymers.
The reconstruction of a continuous two-stranded DNA molecule without mismatch from a molecule which contained damaged regions. The major repair mechanisms are excision repair, in which defective regions in one strand are excised and resynthesized using the complementary base pairing information in the intact strand; photoreactivation repair, in which the lethal and mutagenic effects of ultraviolet light are eliminated; and post-replication repair, in which the primary lesions are not repaired, but the gaps in one daughter duplex are filled in by incorporation of portions of the other (undamaged) daughter duplex. Excision repair and post-replication repair are sometimes referred to as "dark repair" because they do not require light.
Collection of pooled secretions of the posterior vaginal fornix for cytologic examination.
An incision of the posterior vaginal wall and a portion of the pudenda which enlarges the vaginal introitus to facilitate delivery and prevent lacerations.
Studies to determine the advantages or disadvantages, practicability, or capability of accomplishing a projected plan, study, or project.
