The effect of uterovaginal prolapse on urethrovesical
With progression along the RARP learning curve, improvements may be seen in various domains, including operative time, estimated blood loss, positive surgical margin rate, urethrovesical
anastomosis time, complications, length of hospital stay, transfusion rate, early continence, potency, and conversion rate.
Burch urethropexy was then performed laparoscopically using CV-2 nonabsorbable polytetrafluoroethylene (Gore-Tex[C]) figure-of-eight sutures, placed bilaterally 1 cm lateral to the midurethra and at the level of the urethrovesical
Increased bladder pressure may also narrow the urethrovesical
angle (between the female urethra and the posterior bladder wall), which is normally about 90 degrees (Dutton 1960; Tapp et al.
Incontinence pessaries "manually support and stabilize the urethrovesical
junction, which the vaginal sling repair accomplishes surgically" (Roehl & Buchanan, 2006, p.
When the catheter balloon is filled with 10 mm of fluid and gently pulled back, the urethrovesical
junction can be identified.
A sagittal anterior vaginal wall incision was made extending from the urethrovesical
junction to the vaginal apex.
The other way to investigate is to measure the retrovesical (RVA) or posterior urethrovesical
(PUV) angle between proximal urethra and trigone.

foreign body in adolescent boys: report of two cases.
5 Loss of the posterior urethrovesical
angle or reduced tensile strength of the fascia in pregnancy might produce antenatal stress incontinence.
The relaxation of the pelvic floor during the first stage of micturition causes complete toss of the posterior urethrovesical
