Language and communicationWhy is it so difficult to define constipation? by: Giuseppe Dodi, Erica Stocco, Peter Petros

Why is it so difficult to define constipation?In the "land" of the pelvic floor where three main specialists, the urologist, gynaecologist and coloproctologist in most cases still work separately, but often share patients' complaints, a common language is quite important to better understanding what patients and colleagues mean when they say something. Defining constipation, and faecal incontinence as well, is a difficult task as patients and physicians have quite different feelings and opinions on the matter.  [More]

Original article Efficacy and safety of transobturator polypropylene hernia mesh (TOT) for female urinary stress incontinence: mean and large follow-up (7 years) by Leonel Briozzo, Fernanda Nozar, Verónica Fiol, Soledad Bottaro, Fernanda Gómez

Efficacy and safety of transobturator polypropylene herniaIn 1994 DeLancey proposed the "hammock hypothesis", which states that "increases in urethral closure pressure during a cough probably arise because the urethra is compressed against a hammock-like supporting layer". Since Petros and Ulmsten`s concept (1996), minimal invasive surgery using a mid-urethral support without tension (tension free vaginal tape-TVT-technique) has been widespread.TVT has been shown to be effective with a cure rate of incontinence of more than 80%, thus eventually becoming the reference standard technique.  [More]

Case report Case report-hypothesis: a congenitally lax pubourethral ligament may be a contributing cause of vesico-ureteric reflux by Alfons Gunnemann, Shu Fon Muna, Peter Petros

Pelvic floor imagingThere have been no new hypotheses for causation of vesico-ureteric reflux for many years. The aim of this report is to present a new hypothesis, deriving from the field of female stress incontinence. In females with stress urinary incontinence, application of pressure on the anterior vaginal wall at midurethra with a hemostat restores the funnelled geometry of the vesicourethral junction to normal, and continence.  [More]
