- Intermediate-term outcomes of laparoscopic pectopexy and vaginal sacrospinous fi xation: a comparative study. [Journal Article]Int Braz J Urol 2019 Sep-Oct; 45(5):999-1007IB
- CONCLUSIONS: The vaginal sacrospinous fixation maintains its value in prolapse surgery with the increasing importance of native tissue repair. The new laparoscopic pectopexy technique has comparable positive follow-up results with the conventional sacrospinous fixation procedure.

Our study assessed the safety and clinical outcomes of hysteropexy with a single-incision mesh associated with a modified culdoplasty, for the surgical management or prevention of enterocele, in women with pelvic organ prolapse (POP). We carried out a 1-year prospective single-cohort study, including 51 women with symptomatic, multi-compartmental POP. Anatomical outcome was assessed with a POP-Q system and the subjective outcomes were assessed using ICSQ-SF and PGI-I. One-year follow-up data were available for 48 out of 51 patients. The POP-Q cure rate was 91%, 83% of patients were satisfied or very satisfied (PGI-I ≤ 2). No major complications occurred; the most common minor complications were mesh erosion (6%) and pelvic pain (8%). Lower urinary tract dysfunctions arose in 16% of the patients. Anatomical prolapse recurrence (POP-Q stage ≥2) in anterior or apical compartments occurred in four patients (8%). No case of de novo prolapse occurred in the posterior compartment. None of the patients required further surgery for recurrent prolapse. This standardised procedure provided satisfactory 'restitutio ad integrum' of the vaginal anatomy and symptom relief. Impact statement What is already known on this subject? The post-surgical evidence of de novo prolapse in untreated compartments is well-known, especially in prosthetic surgery. The insertion of polypropylene mesh causes a vigorous support, consequently the forces on the pelvic floor are transmitted to the least consolidated vaginal compartment. A lack of simultaneous repair of all the segments involved in the POP increases the risk of surgical recurrence even in those areas that did not appear to be pre-operatively affected by the uterine descensus. What the results of this study add? Our prospective study showed that hysteropexy with a single-incision vaginal support system plus a modified culdoplasty was able to prevent the enterocele and the occurrence of prolapse in the posterior compartment, by closing the Douglas pouch and restoring the connection of the rectovaginal septum with the apical support. What the implications are of these findings for clinical practice and/or further research? This study may be relevant for clinicians in selecting the technique for pelvic floor surgery, and it may be of interest for researchers investigating the reasons for de novo occurrence of posterior segment prolapse.

- Constant existence of the sensory branch of the nerve to the pyramidalis distributing to the upper margin of the pubic ramus. [Journal Article]Anat Sci Int 2018; 93(4):405-413AS
- Twenty-one sides of 11 adult Japanese cadavers were investigated, and 2 of 21 sides exhibited absence of the pyramidalis. We observed that all of the nerves to the pyramidalis included the sensory nerve branch, which distributed to the aponeurotic tissue in the upper area of the pubic ramus. To investigate the clinical relevance and developmental process of the pyramidalis, detailed innervation p…
Twenty-one sides of 11 adult Japanese cadavers were investigated, and 2 of 21 sides exhibited absence of the pyramidalis. We observed that all of the nerves to the pyramidalis included the sensory nerve branch, which distributed to the aponeurotic tissue in the upper area of the pubic ramus. To investigate the clinical relevance and developmental process of the pyramidalis, detailed innervation patterns of the pyramidalis and the lumber plexus were examined and compared with the case of absent pyramidalis. The nerves to the pyramidalis could be classified into five types by the derivative nerves and two subtypes by their courses associated with the funiculus spermaticus. In the cases of absent pyramidalis, similar sensory branches distributed close to the upper area of the pubic ramus. We deduced that the sensory branch extended along with the muscular branch to the pyramidalis after development of the pyramidalis and that only the sensory branch remained in cases in which the pyramidalis disappeared. The two subtypes might associate with descensus testis. Surgeons performing inguinal hernia repair using a mesh and tension-free surgical technique should preserve the nerves around the funiculus spermaticus to avoid diminished proprioception in the lower abdominal wall.

There has been an overall increase in pelvic organ prolapse due to demographic changes (increased life expectancy). Increasing sociocultural demands of women require treatments that are more effective with methods that are more successful. In the treatment of pelvic floor insufficiency and uterovaginal prolapse, pelvic floor reconstructions with mesh implants have proven to be superior to conventional methods such as the classic colporrhaphy, reconstructions with biomaterial, and native tissue repair in appropriately selected patients and when applying exact operation techniques, especially because of good long-term results and low recurrence rates. When making a systematic therapy plan, one should adhere to certain steps, for example, a pelvic floor reconstruction should be undertaken before performing the corrective procedure for incontinence. The approach, if vaginal, laparoscopic, or abdominal should be chosen wisely, taking into consideration the required space of action, in such a way that none or only minimal collateral damage related to the operation occurs. The use of instrumental suturing techniques and operation robots are advantageous in the case of difficult approaches and limited anatomical spaces. In principle, the surgeon who implants meshes should be able to explant them! The surgical concept of mesh-related interventions in the pelvis must meet established rules. "Implant as little mesh as possible and only as much suitable (!) mesh as absolutely necessary!" In the case of apical direct fixations, a therapeutically relevant target variable is the elevation angle of vagina (EAV). Established anatomical fixation points are preferable. A safe distance between implants and vulnerable tissue is to be maintained. Mesh-based prolapse repairs are indicated in recurrences, in primary situations, in combined defects of the anterior compartment, in central defects of multimorbid and elderly patients, and above all, when organ preservation is wanted. Native connective tissue structures are to be preserved, strengthened and reconstructed to restore altered functions. Practical skills for highly specialized mesh-based operations as well as effective techniques for complication management should be taught in interdisciplinary specialist courses.

CASE DESCRIPTION A 6-year-old neutered male domestic shorthair cat was evaluated because of signs of abdominal pain and anuria of 12 hours' duration after vehicular trauma. CLINICAL FINDINGS Lethargy, mydriasis, bradycardia, abdominal distension, and signs of pain on abdominal palpation were observed. Abdominal ultrasonography revealed moderate urinary bladder distension without evidence of free abdominal fluid; hematologic evaluation revealed leukocytosis with high BUN and serum creatinine concentrations. TREATMENT AND OUTCOME The patient was hospitalized, medical stabilization was attempted, and an indwelling urinary catheter was placed. Urinary output was < 1 mL/kg/h (< 0.45 mL/lb/h), and signs of abdominal pain persisted despite treatment. The next day, ultrasonographic examination revealed fluid in the retroperitoneal space, and ureteral rupture was suspected. Exploratory laparotomy confirmed retroperitoneal fluid accumulation; a large hematoma surrounded the right kidney and perirenal structures. An abdominal drain was placed to aid patient stabilization. Three days later, IV pyelography revealed rupture of the proximal part of the right ureter. Ureteroneocystostomy was performed with elongated cystoplasty through a Boari flap and caudal transposition of the right kidney (renal descensus). On follow-up examination 18 months after treatment, the cat was free of clinical signs, and results of ultrasonography, CBC, and serum biochemical analysis were unremarkable. CLINICAL RELEVANCE Results suggested that a Boari flap procedure with renal descensus could be a feasible alternative in the management of proximal ureteral rupture in cats, but research is needed in this area.
