SCP vs HUSLS for Pelvic Organ Prolapse Repair

2016-06-15 17:53:22 | BioPortfolio


The purpose of this study is to compare the effectiveness of R-SCP versus HUSLS for treatment of pelvic organ prolapse.


To compare the effectiveness of Robotic Sacrocolpopexy versus vaginal High Uterosacral Ligament Suspension for treatment of pelvic organ prolapse. Both surgeries are standard of care and are equally and widely used throughout the country with well known safety and efficacy.

Uterosacral Ligament Suspension: A Radiographic Study of Suture Location in Live Subjects.

This study aimed to describe uterosacral ligament suspension (USLS) suture location relative to the surrounding anatomy in a living model using computed tomographic imaging.

The role of ADAMTS-2, collagen type-1, TIMP-3 and papilin levels of uterosacral and cardinal ligaments in the etiopathogenesis of pelvic organ prolapse among women without stress urinary incontinence.

To investigate the potential role of 'a disintegrin-like and metalloproteinase with thrombospondin type motifs-2 (ADAMTS-2), collagen type-1, tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinases-3 (TIMP-3) and papi...

Transvaginal native-tissue repair of enterocele.

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 ...

Indwelling Versus Immediate Removal of Transurethral Catheter After Robotic Sacrocolpopexy: A Randomized Clinical Trial.

This study evaluates the necessity and effect of an indwelling transurethral catheter in the early postoperative period following a robotic-assisted laparoscopic sacrocolpopexy.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Abnormal descent of a pelvic organ resulting in the protrusion of the organ beyond its normal anatomical confines. Symptoms often include vaginal discomfort, DYSPAREUNIA; URINARY STRESS INCONTINENCE; and FECAL INCONTINENCE.

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.

Injury, weakening, or PROLAPSE of the pelvic muscles, surrounding connective tissues or ligaments (PELVIC FLOOR).

A collective term for muscle and ligament injuries without dislocation or fracture. A sprain is a joint injury in which some of the fibers of a supporting ligament are ruptured but the continuity of the ligament remains intact. A strain is an overstretching or overexertion of some part of the musculature.
