At a mean follow-up of 21 months, 71 of 93 (76%) women who underwent a single-incision mini-sling procedure reported treatment failure, defined as overall incontinence, compared with 70 of 109 (64%) women who underwent a retropubic
midurethral sling procedure, Dr.
In the literature, the results of radical retropubic
prostatectomy following previous TURP have been evaluated in several studies,[5-7] although similar data on large series of laparoscopic radical prostatectomy (LRP) are lacking.
The findings supported the use of Macroplastique or retropubic
mid-urethral tape as cost effective treatments for stress urinary incontinence and suggested Macroplastique may offer additional savings in terms of cost to the healthcare system.
Investigators at the University of Sydney's Institute for Magnetic Resonance Research obtained fine-needle aspiration biopsies and tissue specimens from lymph nodes in 18 patients with metastatic melanoma undergoing node resection and from 5 control patients undergoing radical retropubic
The pelvis was approached from a superior position and proceeded retropubically to best replicate the retropubic
approach during robotic-assisted laparoscopic radical prostatectomies (RARP).
After performing a retropubic
midurethral sling, 95% reported performing cystoscopy.

prostatectomy: clinical implications of abnormal findings.
Researchers followed women treated with GYNECARE TVT(TM) Retropubic
System Tension-free Support for Incontinence and found that after 11 years, 90% were objectively cured and 97% considered themselves subjectively cured or improved.
and penneal approaches are both acceptable; laparoscopic surgery--in highly experienced hands--can lead to outcomes comparable with open approaches.

The FDA also reviewed all types of midurethral sling (MUS) devices used to treat stress urinary incontinence (SUI), grouping retropubic
and transobturator slings as first-generation and mini-slings as second-generation devices.
BOTHELL, Washington and INDIANAPOLIS, Indiana, September 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Newly published clinical data on Cialis(R) (tadalafil) published in the September issue of the Journal of Urology show that 62 percent of men who underwent bilateral nerve-sparing radical retropubic
