Comparison of 2 transvaginal surgical approaches and perioperative behavioral therapy for apical vaginal prolapse: the OPTIMAL randomized trial.
JAMA
PUBLISHED: 03-13-2014
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
More than 300,000 surgeries are performed annually in the United States for pelvic organ prolapse. Sacrospinous ligament fixation (SSLF) and uterosacral ligament suspension (ULS) are commonly performed transvaginal surgeries to correct apical prolapse. Little is known about their comparative efficacy and safety, and it is unknown whether perioperative behavioral therapy with pelvic floor muscle training (BPMT) improves outcomes of prolapse surgery.

Posterior vaginal compartment prolapse and defecatory dysfunction: are they related?
Int Urogynecol J
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
While posterior vaginal compartment prolapse and defecatory dysfunction are highly prevalent conditions in women with pelvic floor disorders, the relationship between anatomy and symptoms, specifically obstructed defecation, is incompletely understood. This review discusses the anatomy of the posterior vaginal compartment and definitions of defecatory dysfunction and obstructed defecation. A clinically useful classification system for defecatory dysfunction is highlighted. Available tools for the measurement of symptoms, physical findings, and imaging in women with posterior compartment prolapse are discussed. Based on a critical review of the literature, we investigate and summarize whether posterior compartment anatomy correlates with function. Definitions of obstructed defecation and significant posterior compartment prolapse are proposed for future exploration.

What is Visualize?

JoVE Visualize is a tool created to match the last 5 years of PubMed publications to methods in JoVE's video library.

How does it work?

We use abstracts found on PubMed and match them to JoVE videos to create a list of 10 to 30 related methods videos.

Video X seems to be unrelated to Abstract Y...

In developing our video relationships, we compare around 5 million PubMed articles to our library of over 4,500 methods videos. In some cases the language used in the PubMed abstracts makes matching that content to a JoVE video difficult. In other cases, there happens not to be any content in our video library that is relevant to the topic of a given abstract. In these cases, our algorithms are trying their best to display videos with relevant content, which can sometimes result in matched videos with only a slight relation.
