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.

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
