Laparoscopic-assisted vaginal myomectomy: a case report and literature review. (1/8)The purpose of this article is to present a case of laparoscopic myomectomy (LM) that led to the identification of a new minimally invasive technique [laparoscopic-assisted vaginal myomectomy (LAVM)] for removing multiple transmural uterine myomas and facilitating uterine suturing. In addition, we reviewed the literature to (1) describe the history leading up to LAVM, (2) relate the benefits of this technique to other more widely performed myomectomy procedures [LM and laparoscopic-assisted myomectomy (LAM)], and (3) identify criteria for LM and LAVM.

Comparison of outcomes between Burch colposuspension with and without concomitant abdominal hysterectomy. (2/8)A total abdominal hysterectomy may cause a postoperative vesicourethral dysfunction due to an injury to the pelvic nerves. However, many incontinent women with benign diseases of the uterus and its adnexae have undergone a Burch colposuspension with a concomitant abdominal hysterectomy. This study was undertaken to compare the outcomes of a Burch colposuspension performed alone with that of a Burch with a concomitant abdominal hysterectomy. This study included 132 women, who, were treated for primary urinary incontinence from February 1999 to February 2002 and were diagnosed with stress urinary incontinence by means of the urodynamic test at the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Yonsei University Hospital. Forty-two women underwent a Burch colposuspension alone (Burch group) and 90 women underwent a Burch colposuspension with a concomitant abdominal hysterectomy (hysterectomy group). Between the Burch and hysterectomy groups, the mean age, parity, menopausal rate, Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) rate, 1 year follow-up outcomes and postoperative complications were compared using the subjective and objective stress tests according to the retrospective chart review. The mean age (54.6 +/- 0.5 vs 58.6 +/- 9.2 years, p=0.382), parity (3.3 +/- 1.2 vs 3.6 +/- 1.7), menopausal rate (71.4 vs 77.7%), or HRT rate (23.3 vs 11.2%) of the two groups were similar. Complications related to surgery were encountered in 5 patients (11.9%) in the Burch group and in 7 patients (7.8%) in the hysterectomy group (p=0.842). One year follow-up subjective symptoms were encountered in 2 patients in the Burch group and in 4 patients in the hysterectomy group (p=1.00). The stress test was positive in only one patient in the hysterectomy (p=1.00). No significant difference was observed in the 1 year follow-up outcomes, which were 91.4% (32/35 patients) in the Burch and 91.2% (73/80) in the hysterectomy groups. The results showed that there were no adverse effects on the 1 year follow-up outcomes or complications in patients who underwent a Burch colposuspension with an abdominal hysterectomy. (+info)

A new approach to simplify surgical colpotomy in laparoscopic hysterectomy | Gynecological Surgery | Full Text
This study demonstrates that the surgical colpotomy is a time-consuming step in the LH procedure, that is preceded by the hazardous dissection of the uterine arteries, bladder, and cervix, risking blood loss and ureter injuries. Colpotomy time comprises 16 % of the total operation time, even reaching 45 %. Albeit an extreme value, it does demonstrate the difficulty that can be experienced when performing this task. This is substantiated by our structured interview. In accordance with a previous study , our structured interview revealed that experts find colpotomy in LH significantly more difficult than in AH, and that the same trend is seen for colpotomy in LH compared to VH (although not significant). It is also demonstrated that a rise in BMI proved to be associated with a longer colpotomy time. This effect of BMI on the duration of surgery is in line with other studies [15, 16]. However, in our study, the effect of BMI on the colpotomy time remained even after correcting for total ...

Transvaginal mesh technique for pelvic organ prolapse repair: mesh exposure management and risk factors - Semantic Scholar
Prosthetic reinforcement in the surgical repair of pelvic prolapse by the vaginal approach is not devoid of tolerability-related problems such as vaginal erosion. The purposes of our study are to define the risk factors for exposure of the mesh material, to describe advances and to recommend a therapeutic strategy. Two hundred and seventy-seven patients undergoing surgery due to pelvic prolapse with transvaginal mesh technique were included in a continuous, retrospective study between January 2002 and December 2003. Thirty-four cases of mesh exposure were observed within the 2 months following surgery, which represents an incidence of 12.27%. All the patients were medically treated, nine of whom were found to have completely healed during the check-up performed at 2 months. In contrast, 25 patients required partial mesh exeresis. Risk factors of erosion were concomitant hysterectomy [OR=5.17 (p=10−3)] and inverted T colpotomy [OR=6.06 (p=10−2)]. Two technical guidelines can be defined from this
Althouse: Post-hysterectomy, a woman is prescribed testosterone, and she describes "What it's like to live like a man."
Presumably the patient was offered low-dosage testosterone replacement as an optional adjunct to estrogen replacement. The idea seems to be that itll help with libido, although I dont think this really replicates normal female endocrinology. Dosage should therefore be titrated to keep levels as close as possible to pre-surgical levels. Im guessing she was doing topical estrogen replacement to minimize side effects, so the provider thought, prescribe Androgel or whatever and the patient doesnt have to come in for injections. Still, dosage errors in topical testosterone replacement that are at the margin for male levels can be a pretty big delta for females. Plus, unlike shots, pellets, etc, the topicals purportedly deliver testosterone (or as much as will get through the skin) in a couple of hours. Moreover, the lead warning on topical testosterone proparations are all about females and children coming into inadvertent contact (intimate contact, laundry, etc.) and the importance of ...
Repair of a vaginal vault prolapse is done to manage symptoms such as sagging or drooping of the top of the vagina into the vaginal canal, urinary incontinence, and painful intercourse.. Vaginal vault prolapse often occurs with other pelvic organ prolapse. So tell your doctor about other symptoms you may be having. If your doctor finds prolapse of other pelvic organs during your pelvic exam, that problem may also be repaired during surgery.. Your doctor may do an examination while you have a pessary in your vagina. This exam will help him or her see if urinary incontinence would be a problem after surgery. If the exam shows that urinary incontinence will be a problem, another surgery can be done at the same time to fix the problem.. ...
NSUWorks - Health Professions Division Research Day: Vaginal Cuff Dehiscence in Patients Undergoing Total Robotic and...
Objective. The current literature suggests that robotic procedures appear to incur the greatest risk of vaginal cuff dehiscence. The purpose of this study is to compare the clinical outcomes in relation to vaginal cuff dehiscence in patients undergoing total robotic hysterectomy (TRH) compared to conventional total laparoscopic hysterectomy (TLH) and the use of bidirectional barbed suture. Methods. A retrospective cohort study was performed including women undergoing either conventional total robotic hysterectomy (TRH) or total laparoscopic hysterectomy (TLH) from January 1, 2004 to July 31, 2011 performed by a single surgeon. Age, weight, BMI, surgical procedure, EBL, vaginal cuff complication, dehiscence, DVT, and PE were evaluated. Chi square tests were used to determine associations in the contingency tables while for the continuous variables we used Student t test when appropriate or the Wilcoxon nonparametric test. All comparisons were two-sided where we used a Type I error of 0.05. Results. A
Warts are common dermatologicals disorder which are difficult to treat. In the present study the efficacy of topical 5% 5-fluorouracil was evaluated in various types of warts and compared with the conventional electrosurgical method which included both electrodessication and electrofulguration. 50 patients clinically diagnosed as warts were enrolled. 25 patients were treated with topical 5% 5-fluorouracil applied for 4 hrs twice daily for 3 weeks, while another 25 were treated with electrosurgery. It was observed that electrosurgery yielded better initial results than 5-fluorouracil (72 and 52% respectively), but at the end of 6 months, the results were favourable for 5-fluorouracil as compared to electrosurgery (44 and 36% respectively). This was due to the signficantly low recurrence rate with 5-fluorouracil in contrast to electrosurgery (8 and 48% respectively). Though electrosurgery yielded quicker initial results but 5-fluorouracil was better as long term measurer because of its ...

Some of the major indications for electrosurgery are described and illustrated in the following sections.. Electrosurgery to Facilitate Placement of Direct Composite Materials. Tissue management during direct restorative procedures is an area where dentists can benefit greatly from electrosurgery. During cavity preparation, patients are almost always anesthetized. Nonetheless, delivery of a small amount of anesthesia into the soft tissue is recommended when a soft-tissue electrosurgical procedure is planned. For example, when interproximal electrosurgery is planned prior to matrix placement around a maxillary tooth, the interproximal tissues still might not be sufficiently numb from a vestibular infiltration. One solution is to administer 2% lidocaine with 1:50,000 epinephrine circumcoronally around the tooth that is being restored. Intrapapillary and marginal injections will blanch the tissue and gain soft-tissue anesthesia circumcoronally, preparing the patient for a number of ...
Electrosurgery is the application of a high-frequency (radio frequency) alternating polarity, electrical current to biological tissue as a means to cut, coagulate, desiccate, or fulgurate tissue. (These terms are used in specific ways for this methodology-see below). Its benefits include the ability to make precise cuts with limited blood loss. Electrosurgical devices are frequently used during surgical operations helping to prevent blood loss in hospital operating rooms or in outpatient procedures. In electrosurgical procedures, the tissue is heated by an electric current. Although electrical devices that create a heated probe may be used for the cauterization of tissue in some applications, electrosurgery is usually used to refer to a quite different method than electrocautery. Electrocautery uses heat conduction from a probe heated to a glowing temperature by a direct current (much in the manner of a soldering iron). This may be accomplished by direct current from dry-cells in a penlight-type ...

Fact: The pelvic organs and tissues are linked by connective, supportive tissues that attach them to the pelvic bone structure. When a hysterectomy is performed and the uterus is removed, this structure becomes vulnerable. The tissues supporting the other pelvic organs - such as the bladder, cervix or rectum - can weaken causing these organs to collapse into the vagina. Women who have had a hysterectomy are prone to a specific type of prolapse known as vaginal vault prolapse, when the top portion of the vagina (vaginal vault) collapses into itself. In severe cases the vagina can even start to turn itself inside out. Exercising the PF can help strengthen these support structures.. Livia Nemeth. ...

Im back, 12 days after my total hysterectomy. After a few early challenges in hospital, Ive been doing really well, except that Im now having increasing vaginal bleeding. 3 days ago, I was experiencing sharp pain (havent had any to speak of so far), so called my Dr and went for exam and ultrasound. They found a small infection starting, so Im on day 3 of heavy antibiotics. I mentioned some light bleeding, and the Dr. said some was normal as the sutures in the vaginal cuff dissolve.

Repeated re-processing has a detrimental effect on diathermy instruments: the coating breaks down and pinholes or nicks appear. A leakage of current can occur, which could cause a burn to the patient or surgeon. Some electrosurgery manufacturers replace the damaged instrument with another of unproven provenance raising issues about accountability and operating history. Repaired diathermy forceps and cables do not require CE marking under the Medical Devices Directive 93/42/EEC.. To address these problems, Surgical Holdings has introduced a new system which offers these advantages:. ...

Abstract: Laparoscopic vessel sealing devices have revolutionized modern laparoscopy. These devices fall into 2 major categories: advanced bipolar and ultrasonic instruments. The range of tissue effects available with these technologies is more limited than with conventional monopolar electrosurgery; however, both advanced bipolar and ultrasonic devices efficiently seal vessels (?7-mm and ?5-mm diameter, respectively), and most also have built-in tissue transection capabilities. These technologies have been the subject of a range of comparative studies on their relative advantages and disadvantages, and, to date, neither advanced bipolar or ultrasonic devices has been proven to be superior.. ...

A qualifying connection for an instrument attaches to a source of electrosurgery energy and to the instrument and has first and second parts coupled to the instrument and the source, respectively. Optical couplings on the connection transmit invisible energy to identify the instrument and are proximate on the first and second parts. A light modifier on the first part is proximal to the second part for modification of radiation in the infrared wavelengths so infrared transmitters encode signals and non-contact coded proximity detectors on the second part are the coupled detectors. Mechanical attachments include conjugating male and female portions which physically extend between the parts and matingly engage. An identifying circuit couples to the second part and responds to invisible light optically communicated across the couplings for verifying the type of instrument connected by the cable to the source. A method of using the connection has steps including juxtaposing and conjugating the parts with

INTRODUCTION: The use of robotics for benign etiology in gynecology has not proven to be more beneficial when compared to traditional laparoscopy. The major concern regarding robotic hysterectomy stems from its high cost. AIM: To evaluate the clinical utility and effectiveness of one-arm reduced robotic-assisted laparoscopic hysterectomy as a cost-effective surgical option for total robotic hysterectomy. MATERIAL AND METHODS: A sample population of 54 women who underwent robotic-assisted laparoscopic surgery for benign gynecologic indications was evaluated, and two groups were identified: (1) the two-armed robotic-assisted laparoscopic surgery group (n = 38 patients), and (2) the three-armed robotic-assisted laparoscopic surgery group (n = 16 patients ...
A hyfrecator is a low-powered medical apparatus used in electrosurgery on conscious patients, usually in an office setting. It is used to destroy tissue directly, and to stop bleeding during minor surgery. It works by emitting low-power high-frequency high-voltage AC electrical pulses, via an electrode mounted on a handpiece, directly to the affected area of the body. A continuous electrical spark discharge may be drawn between probe and tissue, especially at the highest settings of power, although this is not necessary for the device to function. The amount of output power is adjustable, and the device is equipped with different tips, electrodes and forceps, depending on the electrosurgical requirement. Unlike other types of electrosurgery, the hyfrecator does not employ a dispersive electrode pad that is attached to the patient in an area not being treated, and that leads back to the apparatus (sometimes loosely but not quite correctly called a "ground pad"). It is designed to work with ...
Secondary infection of a wart.. MEDICATION-In modern medicine, the doctor may prescribe chemicals, such as mild salicylic acid, to destroy warts. Some other procedures followed include cryotherapy (freezing cells to destroy them) and electrosurgery (which uses heat to destroy cells). Cryotherapy is an out-patient procedure that doesnt require anaesthesia or cause bleeding. Freezing stings or hurts slightly during application, and pain may increase a bit after thawing. 3 to 5 weekly treatments are usually necessary to destroy the wart. Electrosurgery procedures can usually be completed in one office visit, but healing takes longer, and secondary bacterial infections and scarring are more common. Laser treatment is becoming commoner in treating warts.. From the HOMOEOPATHIC point of view, a predisposition to develop warts is passed down the family line and is often activated in an individual after numerous vaccinations. Homoeopathy is well-known for the treatment of warts without any invasive ...

Retropubic Burch colposuspension has been considered by many to be the "gold standard" procedure for the treatment of female stress urinary incontinence for almost 40 years. Vancaillie and Schuessler introduced the laparoscopic approach to retropubic colposuspension in 1991. Numerous reports followed in subsequent years describing laparoscopic colposuspensions and their efficacy. Analysis of the outcomes of these various laparoscopic "Burch" colposuspensions is difficult because many of the techniques are not true Burch procedures but rather other modified retropubic colposuspensions. In this section, we describe the laparoscopic Burch colposuspension, including patient selection, preoperative evaluation, operative technique, possible complications, and efficacy. We review the efficacy of the laparoscopic Burch colposuspension studies that use the Burch-Tanagho procedure and compare these techniques to other popular anti-incontinence procedures. The many modified laparoscopic retropubic ...
PEAK PlasmaBlade TnA Versus Traditional Electrosurgery in Subcapsular Tonsillectomy - Full Text View - ClinicalTrials.gov
Tonsillectomy is performed in response to cases of repeated occurrence of acute tonsillitis or adenoiditis, obstructive sleep apnea, nasal airway obstruction, snoring, or peritonsillar abscess.. The PEAK PlasmaBlade uses pulsed radiofrequency (RF) energy and a highly-insulated handpiece design to enable precision cutting and coagulation at the point of application. The PlasmaBlade has received FDA clearance for use in plastic, general, orthopedic, and ear, nose, and throat (ENT) surgery, and has demonstrated a significantly reduced thermal injury profile in incised tissue compared to traditional electrosurgical devices. It is hypothesized that this benefit may improve the post-operative outcome of patients undergoing tonsillectomy.. Two study sites were granted approval for this prospective randomized study. Potential subjects were screened against the inclusion and exclusion criteria of the study protocol and were required to provide informed consent for themselves (adults) or for their child ...

While the incidence of renal cell carcinoma is increasing, there is also an increased rate of cancer detection because of the common use of cross-sectional imaging.
An integrated catheter assembly for enabling diverse endoscopic in situ therapies. The assembly includes a catheter with an irrigation fluid lumen, a distal electrode tip portion that acts as a hemostat, and a cutting wire for making incisions in or ablating tissue. A cutting wire hub provides a sealing entrance for a cutting wire. An operator enables the physician to displace the cutting wire between extended and retracted positions. The cutting wire and electrode are electrically isolated. In addition, the catheter assembly may include a planar tip which, when extended outside the distal end of the assembly, assumes a substantially flat unbiased configuration for use. The apparatus of the present invention allows the physician to make incisions in or ablate tissue using electrosurgery, irrigate tissue, and cauterize or coagulate tissue without having to remove the apparatus from the working channel of the endoscope.
A South Dakota woman who says a vaginal mesh product manufactured by Johnson & Johnson’s Ethicon Inc. destroyed her quality of life told a New Jersey jury on Thursday that she feels she was “used as a guinea pig” to test the product.

Womens pelvic organs are prone to slipping down into the body cavity. When this happens it is referred to having prolapsed.. Five common types of prolapse:. Cystocele. Often referred to as a dropped or bulging bladder, this is the most common prolapse among women following pregnancy and childbirth. Symptoms may include vaginal pressure, slowing of the urinary stream, overactive bladder and an inability to fully empty the bladder.. Rectocele. The mirror image of a cystocele, a weak lower vaginal wall allows the rectum to bulge upward. Rectoceles may cause such symptoms as difficulty with bowel movements, a feeling of fullness and fecal soiling.. Enterocele. This prolapse of the intestines is something like a hernia. Symptoms are often vague, including a pressure in the pelvis and vagina and perhaps a lower back ache. Often this prolapse exists with a vaginal vault prolapse in women who have had a hysterectomy.. Vaginal Vault. This condition occurs only among patients who have had a hysterectomy. ...
Court Rules Johnson & Johnson's Data On Gynecare Mesh Injuries Not Confidential | Litigation & Trial Lawyer Blog
The transvaginal mesh implant erosion litigation continues to move forward, with an interesting ruling last week. In short, Judge Carol Higbee, who is presiding over the consolidated In re Pelvic Mesh/Gynecare Litigation in New Jersey state court, denied Ethicon and Johnson & Johnsons motion to keep a number of "product and regulatory related" documents confidential. We already knew, thanks to the FDAs warning last year, that "serious complications associated with surgical mesh for transvaginal repair of [pelvic organ prolapse] are not rare," and that the FDAs Obstetrics & Gynecology Devices Advisory Committee was trying to figure out what the real risks and benefits were, but now the public and medical researchers might get a glimpse at the best source of data on the most common meshes out there: the Gynecare Prolift, TVT Sling, and Gynemesh Prolene.. To understand why thats a big deal requires a bit of background. As the Supreme Court of New Jersey has explained, "the universal ...

Liz. Post-hysterectomy Pelvic Floor Pain. Dear Stephanie,. I am two weeks post-op after a hysterectomy. I have begun to get discouraged because I still cant be on my feet for more than ten minutes without feeling immense pressure on my pelvic floor muscles. Even when I lay down, they still ache and feel worn out. Is it normal for my pelvic floor to feel this way after surgery?. -Signed, Hysterectomy Post-Op. Dear Hysterectomy Post-Op,. Your situation-post-surgical pelvic pain-is one we see quite frequently in our practice, so I was very glad to get your question, and hope I can shed light on this issue here.. Unfortunately, in todays day and age of rushed medicine, most physicians do not have the time they need to fully inform patients about what to expect after surgery, therefore, many patients are often scared and confused by symptoms that may be totally normal.. The normal healing process from surgery may be causing your symptoms. However, it is very important to be brutally honest with ...

73% Less Thermal Damage with ellman® Radiowave Technology. A study at the University of Iowa compared ellman® radiowave technology to two leading low frequency electrosurgery generators6. The purpose of the study was to accurately measure the thermal damage between all three generators.. Each generator used the same electrode model, the ellman® Vari-Tip™ electrode, with a 0.007 inch diameter wire. Ellman manufactured the Vari-Tip™ electrode to fit in the ellman® Surgitron® Dual generator along with the Bovie® 1250 and ValleyLab® Force Fx generators. Each generator was set by the research staff to the optimum power setting to minimize drag on the tissue.. All skin incisions were made on a porcine abdomen. All of the incisions from the ellman®, Bovie® and ValleyLab® generators looked similar with the naked eye.. However, when the tissue samples were histologically examined with Hematoxylin Eosin stain, a dramatic difference was seen.. ...

This is a surgical procedure that is designed to provide support to the vaginal vault. Essentially, the vault is reattached to the periosteum after a hysterectomy is performed. In many cases, the structure of the vaginal vault is compromised during the hysterectomy, and the sacrocolpopexy is required in order to achieve the best results.. When the walls of the vagina and uterus begin to collapse, other organs in the body can be in jeopardy. This procedure helps to preserve the vagina while also protecting the rest of the bodys internal organs.. This surgery can be done through either conventional methods or utilizing minimally-invasive techniques. The conventional approach requires the surgeon to make an incision in the abdominal area and approach the vagina from that vantage point. Using the latest technology available, Dr. Ilbeigi is also able to complete the sacrocolpopexy using the da Vinci® Surgical System.. This is a robotic surgical assistant that allows a surgeon to complete ...

Robotic-Assisted Laparoscopic Low Anterior Resection with Transanal Extraction and Hand-Sewn Colo-Anal Anastomosis - SAGES...
Madhu Ragupathi, MD, Michael D Yaakovian, MD, Diego I Ramos-Valadez, MD, Eric M Haas, MD FACS FASCRS. Division of Minimally Invasive Colon and Rectal Surgery, Department of Surgery, University of Texas Medical School at Houston, Houston, Texas. Objective/Technique: Robotic-assisted laparoscopic (RALS) low anterior resection (LAR) with total mesorectal excision (TME) for rectal cancer has garnered increasing enthusiasm as a result of favorable preliminary results. The technique affords superior visualization, access, and manipulation of tissues in the deep, confined pelvis while maintaining the benefits of minimally invasive surgery. However, a major limitation involves low division of the rectum and mesorectum using the currently available endoscopic stapling devices.. Methods: To overcome this limitation, we perform RALS ultra-LAR with TME and hand-sewn colo-anal anastomosis for the treatment of rectal cancer. Our technique utilizes division and extraction of the rectum through a transperineal ...

Even as Johnson & Johnson has announced its intention to stop selling vaginal mesh implants, at least one other company intends to continue marketing them despite reports that the devices are severely injuring thousands of patients.. A Bloomberg report quotes Blaine Davis, Endo Health Solutions senior vice-president for corporate affairs, as saying: "As a company, were very committed to these categories. We are actually investing behind these products.". Davis said the company, which sold about $85.5 million in womens health meshes in the past fiscal year, is putting more money into training doctors about how to use the products and plans to conduct studies to prove their safety. Company officials are discussing the scope of the studies with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration..

Increase flexibility and convenience. Facial rejuvenation procedures all promise to erase sun spots, wrinkles, and lines caused by aging, stress, and sun. J Plasmas unique technology promises visible results with no operation and nominal side effects. J Plasma is the new gold standard in non invasive facial rejuvenation. The J Plasma device starts with helium gas and uses radio-frequency (RF) energy to ionize it, turning it into cold helium plasma. J Plasma generates helium gas that is the ionized using radio-frequency that turns it into cold helium plasma. The cold plasma vents from the device in a stream as the device is applied to the skin. The J-Plasma device can be used under or over the skin. As a method of skin rejuvenation the plasma is passed over the skin producing visible results with very minimal damage. The dead skin falls off and some doctors can do a second pass over for skin tightening. The face lift has never been easier, faster, and less scar free than with the J ...https://www.drstoystore.com/product/bovie-ultimate-jplasma-bvx-200p/
