Development of a safety zone for rectus abdominis fascia graft harvest based on dissections of the ilioinguinal and iliohypogastric nerves.

Am J Obstet Gynecol 2020 May 1;222(5):480.e1-480.e7. Epub 2020 Apr 1.

Department of Anatomical Sciences and Neurobiology, University of Louisville School of Medicine, University of Louisville, Louisville, KY.

Background: As a result of the vaginal mesh controversy, surgeons are performing more nonmesh, autologous fascia pubovaginal slings to treat stress urinary incontinence in women. The rectus abdominis fascia is the most commonly harvested site for autologous pubovaginal slings, so it is crucial that surgeons are familiar with the relationship between this graft harvest site and the ilioinguinal and iliohypogastric nerves, which can be injured during this procedure.

Objective: The aims of this study were as follows: (1) to estimate the safest area between the bilateral courses of the ilioinguinal and iliohypogastric nerves in which a rectus abdominis fascia graft could be harvested with minimal risk of injury to these nerves and (2) to determine the location and dimensions of a graft harvest site that maximized graft length while remaining close to the pubic symphysis.

The autologous pubovaginal fascial sling: An update in 2019.

Low Urin Tract Symptoms 2020 Jan 13;12(1):2-7. Epub 2019 Aug 13.

Department of Surgery, Concord Repatriation General Hospital, University of Sydney and Macquarie University, Sydney, Australia.

The contemporary management of stress urinary incontinence (SUI) has seen renewed interest in the use of autologous fascia for the formation of a retropubic suburethral sling. Traditionally, it has been used in only the most severe of incontinence cases, such as those women with intrinsic sphincter deficiency, or in patients requiring concomitant reconstructive procedures. In the current climate surrounding transvaginal mesh, many doctors and patients are shying away from the less morbid synthetic midurethral sling. Read More

Management of Occult Urinary Incontinence with Prolapse Surgery.

Curr Urol Rep 2019 Mar 30;20(5):23. Epub 2019 Mar 30.

University of Pennsylvania Health System and Perelman School of Medicine, Philadelphia, PA, USA.

Purpose Of Review: The purpose of this paper is to review (1) the epidemiology and pathophysiology of pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and occult stress urinary incontinence (SUI), (2) examine the data on combined operative management of POP and occult SUI, (3) discuss the approaches to clinical decision making, and (4) present future therapies.

Recent Findings: Prospective data on many approaches to concomitant treatment of prolapse and occult stress urinary incontinence, such as minimally invasive sacrocolpopexy and midurethral sling, or older approaches that have regained favor among patients and clinicians wishing to avoid synthetic mesh, such as native tissue prolapse repair and pubovaginal sling, are limited. Safe durable treatments with absorbable graft materials that promote a beneficial host response are intriguing but may be far from clinical implementation. Read More

Concomitant repair of stress urinary incontinence with proximal urethrovaginal fistula: Our experience.

Indian J Urol 2016 Jul-Sep;32(3):229-31

Department of Urology, Andhra Medical College, King George Hospital, Visakhapatnam, Andhra Pradesh, India.

Introduction: Proximal urethrovaginal fistula (UVF) located close to the bladder neck may cause extensive sphincter damage and is usually associated with continuous incontinence, which may mask the associated stress urinary incontinence (SUI). Simultaneous correction of SUI avoids a second surgery for SUI, which needs dissection in ischemic fields and carries a high risk of failure. The aim of this study is to describe our technique of concomitant repair of SUI with proximal UVF and our results. Read More

Surgicel granuloma mimicking ovarian cancer: A case report.

Oncol Lett 2016 Aug 8;12(2):1083-1084. Epub 2016 Jun 8.

Department of Urology and Renal Transplantation, University of Foggia, Foggia I-71100, Italy.

Surgicel is an absorbable sterile mesh composed of oxidized cellulose that is used to control intraoperative capillary or venous bleeding, due to its capacity to bind hemoglobin, thus allowing the formation of an artificial clot. In the present study, a large granuloma mimicking ovarian cancer, which developed following placement of a Surgicel sponge during a combined pubovaginal sling procedure and cystocele repair, is reported. The aim of the present case report is to emphasize the fact that hemostatic measures should be removed following their use, and to alert surgeons to the risk of using and leaving oxidized cellulose.

Outcomes of Autologous Fascia Pubovaginal Sling for Patients with Transvaginal Mesh Related Complications Requiring Mesh Removal.

J Urol 2016 Aug 17;196(2):484-9. Epub 2016 Mar 17.

Department of Urology, Medical University of South Carolina, Charleston, South Carolina. Electronic address:

Purpose: We reviewed the outcomes of the autologous fascial pubovaginal sling as a salvage procedure for recurrent stress incontinence after intervention for polypropylene mesh erosion/exposure and/or bladder outlet obstruction in patients treated with prior transvaginal synthetic mesh for stress urinary incontinence.

Materials And Methods: In a review of surgical databases at 2 institutions between January 2007 and June 2013 we identified 46 patients who underwent autologous fascial pubovaginal sling following removal of transvaginal synthetic mesh in simultaneous or staged fashion. This cohort of patients was evaluated for outcomes, including subjective and objective success, change in quality of life and complications between those who underwent staged vs concomitant synthetic mesh removal with autologous fascial pubovaginal sling placement.

Cross-sectional imaging following surgical interventions for stress urinary incontinence in females.

Abdom Radiol (NY) 2016 06;41(6):1178-86

Department of Radiology, University of California, Irvine School of Medicine, Orange, CA, USA.

Stress urinary incontinence (SUI) is a condition in which the weakness of the pelvic floor muscles causes unintentional loss of urine. For patients who are unable to achieve symptomatic improvement from lifestyle modification and pharmacotherapy, surgical placement of the pelvic slings or the use of urethral bulking agents has been shown to provide tremendous symptomatic improvement. Learning to recognize the pelvic slings and to identify their complications on imaging is invaluable; however, this is challenging because of the change in the local anatomy after surgical placement of the sling.
