This study aimed to describe uterosacral ligament suspension (USLS) suture location relative to the surrounding anatomy in a living model using computed tomographic imaging.
Enterocele repair represents a challenge for pelvic surgeons. Surgical management implies enterocele sac removal. Subsequently, hernial port closure and adequate suspension may be achieved with Shull ...
The purpose of this study was to determine and compare the prevalence of anterolateral ligament abnormality and associated injuries among patients with complete and partial anterior cruciate ligament ...
Historically, outcomes of posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) reconstructions have been less predictable and reported to yield inferior results when compared with those for anterior cruciate ligament (A...
The International Continence Society defines post-hysterectomy vault prolapse (PHVP) as descent of the vaginal cuff scar below a point that is 2 cm less than the total vaginal length above...
Uterosacral ligament suspension (USLS) is a commonly performed, vaginal surgery for the correction of female pelvic organ prolapse. The original description of this procedure included the ...
This study seeks to gain a more thorough understanding of the postoperative location of the sutures placed during uterosacral ligament suspension. Characterization of the surrounding anato...
This cross sectional, two cohort study seeks to investigate both anatomic outcome and subjective, functional outcome of uterosacral ligament suspension versus robotic sacrocolpopexy and co...
Pelvic organ prolapse is common among women with a prevalence that has been estimated to be as high as 30%. Pelvic organ prolapse often involves a combination of support defects involving ...
There are two lateral ligaments of the ankle - internal and external. The internal lateral ligament is attached to the apex and anterior and posterior bodies of the inner malleolus and inserted into the navicular bone, the inferior calcaneo-navicular ligament, the sustentaculum tali of the os calcis, and the inner side of the astragalus. The external lateral ligament, also called the lateral collateral ligament, consists of three distinct fasciculi - the calcaneofibular, the anterior talofibular, and the posterior talofibular.
Rebuilding of the ANTERIOR CRUCIATE LIGAMENT to restore functional stability of the knee. AUTOGRAFTING or ALLOGRAFTING of tissues is often used.
Sprain or tear injuries to the ANTERIOR CRUCIATE LIGAMENT of the knee.
Two extensive fibrous bands running the length of the vertebral column. The anterior longitudinal ligament (ligamentum longitudinale anterius; lacertus medius) interconnects the anterior surfaces of the vertebral bodies; the posterior longitudinal ligament (ligamentum longitudinale posterius) interconnects the posterior surfaces. The commonest clinical consideration is OSSIFICATION OF POSTERIOR LONGITUDINAL LIGAMENT. (From Stedman, 25th ed)
A strong ligament of the knee that originates from the posteromedial portion of the lateral condyle of the femur, passes anteriorly and inferiorly between the condyles, and attaches to the depression in front of the intercondylar eminence of the tibia.
