Phase N/A

Investigation to Minimize Prolapse Recurrence of the Vagina Using Estrogen

This is a double-blind randomized trial of intravaginal estrogen (conjugated estrogens, 0.625mg/1g cream) vs. placebo in postmenopausal women (n=222 total) with symptomatic prolapse beyond the hymen planning transvaginal native tissue repairs. Medication will be started 6-8 weeks before surgery and continued for 1 year postoperatively, i.e. until scar remodeling is ...


Abdominal Versus Vaginal Hysteropexy

this study compares The unilateral sacrospinous hysteropexy with prolene sutures versus the abdominal sacral hysteropexy using Mersilene suture for the management of uterine prolapse

Phase N/A

An Intervention to Improve Prolapse Using Femmeze (v1)

Aim Evaluate the feasibility of the Femmeze device to improve management of posterior vaginal compartment prolapse addressing implementation of the intervention and preliminary effectiveness. Objectives demonstrate effectiveness of the device (comfort, ease of use, empty the rectum of stool more easily than their current approach and quality of life) identify ...

Phase N/A

Prediction of Postsurgical Symptomatic Outcomes With Preoperative Pessary Use

It is anticipated that this trial will define the clinical utility of routine preoperative pessary placement, and by shaping patient expectations and increasing preparedness for surgery, we anticipate improving satisfaction and quality of life. At the initial office visit baseline symptoms are evaluation with validated questionnaire. The patients' will undergo ...

Phase N/A

FETO With Long Tail Balloon for a Treatment of Severe CDH

Congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) has an incidence of 1:2200 to 1:4000 newborns, depending on whether stillbirths are included or not. 40 % of all CDH cases show associated malformations and chromosomal abnormalities and/or syndromes take place in 10-20%. The survival rate depends on the extent of the lung hypoplasia and ...

Does the Stapled Transanal Rectal Resection (STARR Procedure) Has an Effect on Anal Compliance ?

The stapled transanal rectal resection (STARR) has recently been recommended for patients with obstructed defecation syndrome (ODS) caused by rectocele and rectal wall intussusception. The aim of STARR is to correct the mechanical outlet obstruction using a stapler device for endorectal resection of the distal rectum. This technique significantly improves ...

Prospective Analysis of Restorelle in the Treatment of Uterine Prolapse

This study is being done to evaluate the performance of the Restorelle system, which uses Smartmesh - an ultra-lightweight mesh for uterine prolapse management. Most patients undergo a hysterectomy i.e. removal of the uterus when they have a prolapse. However, this has often been found to be an unnecessary operation. ...

Phase N/A

Dexamethasone Administration To Improve Patient Recovery In Ambulatory Vaginal Prolapse Surgery: Is There A Role?

The lifetime risk of undergoing surgical intervention for pelvic organ prolapse (POP) is estimated to be 10% and it is projected that from 2010 to 2050, the number of surgeries for POP will rise by 47.2%, from 166,000 to 245,970. In 1980, accounting for the rising costs of health care, ...
