  • [Robot assisted Frykman-Goldberg procedure. Case report]. [Journal Article]
  • CCCir Cir 2017 Jan 16
  • Zubieta-O'Farrill G, Ramírez-Ramírez M, Villanueva-Sáenz E
  • CONCLUSIONS: There are more than 100 surgical procedures for rectal prolapse treatment. We report the first robot assisted procedure in Mexico. Robotic assisted surgery has the same safety rate as laparoscopic surgery, with the advantages of better instrument mobility, no human hand tremor, better vision, and access to complicated and narrow areas.Robotic surgery as the surgical treatment is a feasible, safe and effective option, there is no difference in recurrence and function compared with laparoscopy. It facilitates the technique, improves nerve preservation and bleeding. Further clinical, prospective and randomized studies to compare the different minimal invasive approaches, their functional and long term results for this pathology are needed.
  • Laparoscopic hysteropexy: 10 years' experience. [Journal Article]
  • IUInt Urogynecol J 2017 Jan 18
  • Jefferis H, Price N, Jackson S
  • CONCLUSIONS: To our knowledge, this is the largest series to date, describing 10 years' experience with laparoscopic hysteropexy. The surgical technique appears to be safe, with low complication rates, which supports the choice of appropriately selected women to opt for uterine preservation surgery as an alternative to hysterectomy for the management of uterine prolapse.
  • Defecography by digital radiography: experience in clinical practice. [Journal Article]
  • RBRadiol Bras 2016 Nov-Dec; 49(6):376-381
  • Gonçalves AN, Sala MA, … Nacif MS
  • CONCLUSIONS: Although defecography is performed more often in women, both genders can benefit from the test. Defecography can be performed in order to detect complex disorders such as uterine and rectal prolapse, as well as to detect basic clinical conditions such as rectocele or enterocele.
  • Planned early birth versus expectant management (waiting) for prelabour rupture of membranes at term (37 weeks or more). [Review]
  • CDCochrane Database Syst Rev 2017 Jan 04; 1:CD005302
  • Middleton P, Shepherd E, … Crowther CA
  • CONCLUSIONS: There is low quality evidence to suggest that planned early birth (with induction methods such as oxytocin or prostaglandins) reduces the risk of maternal infectious morbidity compared with expectant management for PROM at 37 weeks' gestation or later, without an apparent increased risk of caesarean section. Evidence was mainly downgraded due to the majority of studies contributing data having some serious design limitations, and for most outcomes estimates were imprecise.Although the 23 included trials in this review involved a large number of women and babies, the quality of the trials and evidence was not high overall, and there was limited reporting for a number of important outcomes. Thus further evidence assessing the benefits or harms of planned early birth compared with expectant management, considering maternal, fetal, neonatal and longer-term childhood outcomes, and the use of health services, would be valuable. Any future trials should be adequately designed and powered to evaluate the effects on short- and long-term outcomes. Standardisation of outcomes and their definitions, including for the assessment of maternal and neonatal infection, would be beneficial.
