The aim of the study will be to compare the SCP and LLS in the management of apical prolapse at 6 weeks, 6 months, 1 year and yearly up to 2 years with the null hypothesis being that no si...
Pelvic organ prolapse (POP) is considered one of the commonest gynecologic health problems all over the world. Pelvic organ prolapse (POP) is common and can be seen in up to 50% or more of...
The primary objective of this pilot study is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the VFIX device in maintaining vaginal apical support for at least 6 months in women with symptomat...
The aim of this study is to further evaluate the safety and efficacy of the Elevate® Apical and Posterior Prolapse Repair System for repair of apical/posterior pelvic organ prolapse in a ...
1. This is a prospective, single arm, multi-center, post market study, which will be conducted under a common protocol. 2. The primary objective of the study is to evaluate long-te...
Pelvic organ prolapse is a common diagnosis. Today there is no consensus on the ideal operation technique for apical prolapse. Vaginal hysterectomy with suspension of the vaginal cuff is the most freq...
To estimate whether the urinary force of stream method is noninferior to a standard fill voiding trial for rate of catheterization within 6 weeks after apical prolapse surgery in those discharged with...
Overactive bladder (OAB) symptoms are frequently associated with pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and both postoperative improvement and de novo onset of OAB symptoms have been described. The aim of the st...
We sought to understand practice patterns of non-female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery (FPMRS) clinicians regarding concurrent apical support procedures during hysterectomies when primaril...
To evaluate whether utilization of apical suspension procedures at the time of vaginal hysterectomy for pelvic organ prolapse varies with surgeon specialty.
The prolapse or downward displacement of the VISCERA.
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.
A condition caused by an apical lung tumor (Pancoast tumor) with involvement of the nearby vertebral column and the BRACHIAL PLEXUS. Symptoms include pain in the shoulder and the arm, and atrophy of the hand.
Sensory cells in the organ of Corti, characterized by their apical stereocilia (hair-like projections). The inner and outer hair cells, as defined by their proximity to the core of spongy bone (the modiolus), change morphologically along the cochlea. Towards the cochlear apex, the length of hair cell bodies and their apical stereocilia increase, allowing differential responses to various frequencies of sound.
A precursor of noradrenaline that is used in the treatment of parkinsonism. The racemic form (DL-threo-3,4-dihydroxyphenylserine) has also been used, and has been investigated in the treatment of orthostatic hypotension. There is a deficit of noradrenaline as well as of dopamine in Parkinson's disease and it has been proposed that this underlies the sudden transient freezing seen usually in advanced disease. Administration of DL-threo-3,4-dihydroxyphenylserine has been claimed to result in an improvement in this phenomenon but controlled studies have failed to demonstrate improvement.
