Long-term compliance of vaginal pessaries: Does stress urinary incontinence matter?

Medicine (Baltimore) 2019 Apr;98(14):e15063

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Kaohsiung Veterans General Hospital, Kaohsiung.

Vaginal pessary treatment for pelvic organ prolapse (POP) is relatively safe and cost-effective. Since long-term use is an important key to keep the benefit of pessary treatment, we would like to investigate the factors which might affect the compliance of vaginal pessaries. In this retrospective study, 65 women were included, and we found poor compliance in women with severe stress urinary incontinence (SUI) after reduction (1-hour pad test >10 gm vs ≦10 gm, 57.

Sara Manning

Emerg Med Clin North Am 2019 May;37(2):193-205

Department of Emergency Medicine, University of Maryland School of Medicine, 110 South Paca Street, 6th Floor, Suite 200, Baltimore, MD 21201, USA. Electronic address:

Variations in estrogen levels across a woman's lifetime lead to important changes in genital physiology and pathophysiology. Low estrogen states like menopause and the prepubertal period share important physiologic changes, including more friable, dry, and inelastic mucosa that is prone to irritation, injury, and infection. These and other factors lead to unique gynecologic pathologic conditions encountered at the extremes of age. Read More

Homozygous frameshift mutations in FAT1 cause a syndrome characterized by colobomatous-microphthalmia, ptosis, nephropathy and syndactyly.

Nat Commun 2019 03 12;10(1):1180. Epub 2019 Mar 12.

Centre de Recherche en Génomique des Pathologies Humaines (GENOPATH), Faculté de Médecine et de Pharmacie, Mohammed V University of Rabat, 10100, Rabat, Morocco.

A failure in optic fissure fusion during development can lead to blinding malformations of the eye. Here, we report a syndrome characterized by facial dysmorphism, colobomatous microphthalmia, ptosis and syndactyly with or without nephropathy, associated with homozygous frameshift mutations in FAT1. We show that Fat1 knockout mice and zebrafish embryos homozygous for truncating fat1a mutations exhibit completely penetrant coloboma, recapitulating the most consistent developmental defect observed in affected individuals.

Effect of modified laparoscopic hysterectomy on pelvic floor function: A retrospective observational study.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2019 Feb;98(8):e14616

Institute of Medicine, Chung Shan Medical University, Taichung.

Hysterectomy is a potential risk factor for subsequent surgery for pelvic organ prolapse, especially when the prolapse exists before hysterectomy. Women without prolapse before hysterectomy may also experience prolapse after hysterectomy. This study aimed to describe a surgical modification of laparoscopic colposuspension with round ligaments after hysterectomy in women without preexisting genital prolapse and to evaluate the initial surgical results in these patients.

Surgical Timing for Congenital Ptosis Should Not Be Determined Solely by the Presence of Anisometropia.

Ophthalmic Plast Reconstr Surg 2019 Jan 2. Epub 2019 Jan 2.

Section of Orbital and Ophthalmic Plastic Surgery (S.A.M.C., G.J.H.).

Dynamic Renal Ptosis Demonstrated on 18F-FDG PET/CT.

Clin Nucl Med 2019 Apr;44(4):303-304

From the Nuclear Medicine Service, Department of Radiology, Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, Bethesda, MD.

Renal ptosis, otherwise known as nephroptosis or "floating kidney," is a condition of abnormal descent of the kidney, often asymptomatic with controversy over its clinical and therapeutic significance. The aberrant location of renal and renal collecting system activity associated with this condition may serve as a diagnostic pitfall in PET/CT interpretation. We report a case of dynamic renal ptosis demonstrated on F-FDG PET/CT, identified as right kidney migration from an ectopic location on attenuation correction CT images, obtained immediately after upright positioning, to the right renal fossa on subsequent PET images, obtained after approximately 10 min of supine positioning.

Department of Ophthalmology, the 2nd Xiangya Hospital, Central South University, Changsha, 410011, Hunan Province, China.

Background: Bone wax is the most widely used hemostatic bone sealant because of its availability, ease of use, immediate action, and minimal adverse effects. Several complications have been reported to be associated with the use of bone wax, such as infection, osteohypertrophy, pain, granuloma formation, allergic reaction, and thrombosis. Here, we present a rare complication, namely, bone wax migration, which developed after a craniotomy on a patient who had a frontal sinus abnormality. Read More

Patients often develop eyebrow drooping after blepharoplasty or ptosis repair. After aponeurosis advancement was performed in 53 patients (100 eyelids) with blepharoptosis, the eyebrow heights at the medial canthus, center of the pupil, and lateral canthus were measured using scanned photographs obtained preoperatively and 3 months postoperatively. In the 100 eyelids subjected to aponeurosis advancement, the eyebrow position was lowered at the medial canthus in 81 eyelids (81%), at the center of the pupil in 84 eyelids (84%), and at the lateral canthus in 80 eyelids (80%).

Department of Urology, CHA Bundang Medical Center, CHA University, Seongnam, Republic of Korea.

Purpose: This study identified noninvasive factors that predict overactive bladder (OAB) after readjustable mid-urethral sling surgery (Remeex system) in women with stress urinary incontinence (SUI) due to intrinsic sphincter deficiency (ISD).
