Polypropylene implants are used for the reconstructive surgery of urogynaecological disorders like pelvic organ prolapse, but severe complications associated with their use have been reported. There is evidence that surface properties and a difference in mechanical stiffness between the implant and the host tissue contribute to these adverse events. Electrospinning is an innovative engineering alternative that provides a biomimetic microstructure for implants, resulting in a different mechano-biological performance.

To establish validity for the Pelvic Floor Disorders Network (PFDN) self-administered Adaptive Behavior Index (ABI) and to assess whether ABI assesses known discordance between severity of pelvic floo...
A common concern regarding pelvic floor surgery is the relatively high risk of recurrence. In an effort to minimize this risk, many surgeons instruct their patients to avoid certain activities during ...
Most aspects of implant-assisted reconstruction of pelvic floor in males and females are under debate and the research is not standardized. Registries are supposed to shed light to the indications, su...
Pelvic floor disorders are common and cause significant morbidity for women. Recent advances in the evaluation of women with pelvic floor dysfunction have improved diagnostic accuracy and, with the de...
Water immersion delivery is a non-pharmacological approach to ease labor pain. This paper aims to investigate the effect of water immersion delivery on increasing strength of pelvic floor muscle (PFM)...
This study aims to see if platelet rich plasma (PRP) have beneficial effect on the repair of pelvic floor muscle damage in primipara. Therefore, this double blinded randomized clinical tri...
Pregnancy and vaginal delivery are considered as the main risk factors for damage to the pelvic floor. There are various ways to measure the strength of the pelvic floor and to evaluate fu...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the clinical performance of the PROLIFT system with a new lighter-weight mesh in repair of vaginal prolapse.
The pelvic floor is composed of muscles and connective tissue which acts to provide support for pelvic organs, and weakness or injury to the pelvic floor can result in pelvic floor dysfunc...
The purpose of this study is to is to evaluate the success of the GYNECARE PROSIMA* system in women with symptoms for pelvic organ prolapse (POP) requiring surgical correction of POP. (*T...
Injury, weakening, or PROLAPSE of the pelvic muscles, surrounding connective tissues or ligaments (PELVIC FLOOR).
Soft tissue formed mainly by the pelvic diaphragm, which is composed of the two levator ani and two coccygeus muscles. The pelvic diaphragm lies just below the pelvic aperture (outlet) and separates the pelvic cavity from the PERINEUM. It extends between the PUBIC BONE anteriorly and the COCCYX posteriorly.
Inflammation of the parametrium, the connective tissue of the pelvic floor, extending from the subserous coat of the uterus laterally between the layers of the BROAD LIGAMENT.
The part of the pelvis, inferior to the pelvic brim, that comprises both the pelvic cavity and the part of the PERINEUM lying inferior to the PELVIC DIAPHRAGM.
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.
Biological therapy involves the use of living organisms, substances derived from living organisms, or laboratory-produced versions of such substances to treat disease. Some biological therapies for cancer use vaccines or bacteria to stimulate the body&rs...
