It is also claimed to cause endopelvic fascia
and connective tissue injuries due to forcing or stretching during delivery.
Unlike the MUS, a short (8-10 cm) graft of rectus fascia (or fascia lata) is positioned at the bladder neck, with the ends of the graft incorporating into the endopelvic fascia
and eventually becoming fixed by fibrosis in the retropubic space.
2%, respectively, in their 2,625 patients in whom lateral prostatic fascia and endopelvic fascia
were preserved during RALP.
Upon entry into the space of Retzius, the endopelvic fascia
was not incised to maximize nerve-sparing technique as part of Samadi Modified Advanced Robotic Technique (SMART) .
DISCUSSION: Uterine prolapse occurs most commonly in multiparous and post-menopausal women because of injury to the endopelvic fascia
and levator ani muscles.
Long-term success depends on healing and fibrotic processes, which occur primarily where the sling passes through the endopelvic fascia
It is important to make sure that dissection of the endopelvic fascia
is performed sharply until a relatively avascular and areolar space is created; at this time, blunt dissection with the surgeon's finger can be easily accomplished.
A randomized comparison of tension-free vaginal tape and endopelvic fascia
plication in women with genital prolapse and occult stress urinary incontinence.
4) The defects described earlier were probably within the endopelvic fascia
lateral to the bladder and vagina.
A clearly defined edge of endopelvic fascia
in the region of greatest observed displacement was selected.
LAS VEGAS -- Laparoscopic electrothermal shrinkage of stretched endopelvic fascia
holds promise as an effective new method of treating genuine stress urinary incontinence, according to preliminary results of an ongoing multicenter trial.
These include perioperative factors, such as age and prostate volume, (5) and certain anatomic or surgical factors important in continence preservation (injury to the arterial supply and preservation of urethral support mechanisms, including the endopelvic fascia
and puboprostatic ligaments).
