PURPOSE: Due to the reclassification of transvaginal mesh as a high-risk device, there has been renewed interest in the use of fascia lata in pelvic floor reconstruction. Here we report our experience in 108 patients who underwent large fascia lata harvest for pelvic organ prolapse (POP) repair. Our primary objective was to highlight the postoperative morbidity of the large fascia lata harvest in patients who underwent POP repair using fascia lata autograft. METHODS: Surgery involved harvesting a fascia lata graft through a small lateral upper thigh incision and was used for either autologous transvaginal POP repair or autologous sacrocolpopexy...

BACKGROUND: Nocturnal enuresis is generally considered a children's condition, yet it may persist 1%-2% in adolescence and early adulthood. Refractory patients often demand follow-up by multidisciplinary teams, which is only restricted to some of the expert tertiary centers. However, there are no standardized transition programs/guidelines when follow-up must be passed from pediatric to adult healthcare providers. AIM, MATERIALS & METHODS: To investigate this issue, we conducted a literature search on enuresis transition, which resulted in no articles...

INTRODUCTION: Although antibiotic prophylaxis (AB) demonstrated a statistically significant reduction in bacteriuria after invasive urodynamics (UDS), no significant decrease in the incidence of urinary tract infections (UTI) has been confirmed. No absolute recommendations on the use of AB in case of relevant potential risk of UTI have been reported, though some categories of patients at increased infective probability after UDS have been recognized. The aim of this study is to report the experts' consensus on the best practice for the use of AB before UDS in the main categories of patients at potential risk of developing UTI...

OBJECTIVE: Functional MRI (fMRI) can be employed to assess neuronal activity in the central nervous system. However, investigating the spinal cord using fMRI poses several technical difficulties. Enhancing the fMRI signal intensity in the spinal cord can improve the visualization and analysis of different neural pathways, particularly those involved in bladder function. The bulbocavernosus reflex (BCR) is an excellent method for evaluating the integrity of the sacral spinal cord. Instead of stimulating the glans penis or clitoris, the BCR can be simulated comfortably by tapping the suprapubic region...

INTRODUCTION: The pathogenesis of pelvic organ prolapse (POP), an age-related disease, has not been fully elucidated. Therapeutic targets of POP are limited. Silencing information regulator 2 related enzyme 1 (SIRT1), a gene considered capable of regulating oxidative stress and cellular senescence, has been widely demonstrated involved in aging and age-related diseases. The present study aimed to explore the role of SIRT1 in POP in vivo and in vitro. METHODS: Expression levels of SIRT1 in uterosacral ligament (USL) tissues from patients with or without POP were measured using immunohistochemical assays...

Children with a neurogenic bladder are at risk of developing recurrent urinary tract infections and long-term kidney failure. Due to an altered lower urinary tract, children may be overtreated for simple bacteriuria or undertreated for a potentially severe urinary tract infection. This group of patients represent high users of healthcare, and are at risk of colonization and development of antibiotic resistance. Bladder washouts with non-antibiotic electrochemically activated solutions are a potential new prophylactic option for patients with bladder dysfunction when clean intermittent catheterization has resulted in chronic bacteriuria...

INTRODUCTION: Nocturia is a complex and multifactorial condition, associated with several genitourinary abnormalities as well as a host of conditions beyond the urinary tract, and thus often poses a significant diagnostic challenge in real-world practice. Sleep Disorders, Comorbidities, Actions, Lower Urinary Tract Dysfunction, and Medications, the so-called "Sleep C.A.L.M." factors, are five common causes of nocturia requiring judicious evaluation according to current consensus guidelines...

AIMS: Women of advanced age may choose between restorative or obliterative surgery for surgical management of pelvic organ prolapse. Obliterative surgery is traditionally reserved for a subset of older women with more severe medical comorbidities, since obliterative approaches are generally considered to be less morbid and older individuals have higher rates of perioperative complications than younger cohorts. This study compared perioperative complications amongst octogenarians undergoing obliterative versus reconstructive approaches...
