Feasibility and outcome of vaginal paravaginal repair using the Capio suture-capturing device.
Summary of "Feasibility and outcome of vaginal paravaginal repair using the Capio suture-capturing device."
This investigation describes the feasibility and outcome of vaginal paravaginal repair (VPVR) performed using the Capioâ„¢ 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 12.9Â min (range, 11-18Â min). The median blood loss during the VPVR was 35Â ml (range, 20-65Â ml). There were no major intraoperative complications. At 2-year follow-up, the rate of recurrent anterior vaginal wall prolapse (stage â‰¥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.

In traditional flexor tendon repairs, suture knots can be sites of weakness, impair tendon healing, stimulate an inflammatory response, and increase the bulk of the tendon repair. Because of this, the...
Over the past five decades we have seen numerous iterations of suture repair methods for tendon. The pursuit of the ultimate repair has led to many repair methods being described. This comprehensive c...
This human cadaveric study compares the biomechanical properties of quadriceps tendon repair with suture anchors and the commonly applied transosseous sutures. The hypothesis was that suture anchors p...
Surgery for pelvic organ prolapse is a common surgical procedure. There is little research studying post-operative pain, contrasting with extensive literature on pain after childbirth trauma which sho...
Arthroscopic labral repair is an effective technique for most cases of traumatic shoulder instability. However, patients with anterior labroligamentous periosteal sleeve avulsion lesions frequently ha...
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 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...
We wish to determine wich of two standardized suturing techniques is the best for perineal repair if a perineal laceration or an episiotomy is present after vaginal birth. The participant...
Prolapse of the uterus, bladder and rectum is a common condition in multiparous and/or elderly women. The number of operations for vaginal repair is increasing in Denmark, but there is no...
Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
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.
