In 2008, a comparison of transvaginal
mesh to native tissue repair (suture-based) or other (biologic) grafts was published.
Effect of Transvaginal
sonography on the use of invasive procedures for evaluating patient's within a clinical diagnosis of ectopic pregnancy.
Caption: The top row shows a transabdominal ultrasound and the bottom row shows a transvaginal
ultrasound, both at 12 weeks: a) four-chamber view, b) crisscross of the great arteries, c) V shape, isthmus, and duct (three-vessel view).
In February, the FDA convened an advisory panel to solicit input from experts on how to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of surgical mesh for transvaginal
Further, Coloplast stated that it is disappointed by the FDA decision to remove surgical transvaginal
mesh as a treatment option for women suffering from pelvic organ prolapse.
Immediately after, transvaginal
ultrasonography was done with 7 MHz TVS probe in every patient with urinary bladder completely empty.
Oyawoye noted that low-dose local MTX is more effective in the faster control of trophoblast growth, and is a more cost-effective method than surgery.22 Cerveira and co-workers commented that MTX treatment is an effective and safe method when dosage, week of pregnancy, fertility desire, and hemodynamic stability are taken into consideration.23 Tamarit et al reported three successful uterine artery embolizations in addition to local MTX injection.24 In our patients, local treatment was applied under transvaginal
If I have a patient with all three of these (mother with ovarian cancer + obesity + history of PCOS), I would likely recommend annual transvaginal
ultrasound and CA-125 testing.
Laser energy was delivered through a custom-built transvaginal
probe head (19 x 22 mm) with integrated pressure and temperature sensors, and flow cell circulating an alcohol-based solution for cooling the sapphire window (Figure 1).
The current evidence suggests there is no difference in anatomic and quality-of-life outcomes when using synthetic absorbable mesh, synthetic non-absorbable mesh, or biologic graft compared with native tissue for transvaginal
repair of posterior vaginal prolapse.6 One study by Paraiso et al.
Urogynaecological meshes, which are also often known as transvaginal
meshes are used to treat stress incontinence, a condition, which can lead to women leaking from their bladder when doing impact activities such as running and jumping, or even sneezing or coughing.
