Intravesical tape erosion following the tension-free vaginal tape procedure for stress urinary incontinence

, : Intravesical tape erosion following the tension-free vaginal tape procedure for stress urinary incontinence. International Journal of Urology 12(7): 696-698

We report a case of intravesical tape erosion which occurred 6 months after the tension-free vaginal tape (TVT) procedure, which was successfully treated by partial tape removal. A 75-year-old woman, who had complained of recurrent cystitis after TVT procedure, was referred to Kobe City General Hospital in August 2003. The intravesical tape erosion was revealed by cystoscopy and computed tomography, and the tape was removed with a retropubic approach. The recurrent cystitis has been cured and the stress urinary incontinence has not recurred. The intravesical tape erosion was rare, with only seven reported cases including the present case.

According to Grabka, Ca sucrocarbonate may be prepared by slaking crushed quicklime in a mixture of pulp-press water and filtrate containing 10-15% sucrose at 80-90 degrees C to give saccharate with alkalinity 5-6% CaO (w/v), then cooling to 20-25...

Hyaluronan (HA) is a polysaccharide with high-potential medical applications, depending on the chain length and the chain length distribution. Special interest goes to homogeneous HA oligosaccharides, which can be enzymatically produced using Past...

We employ radio-frequency spectroscopy to investigate a polarized spin mixture of ultracold ^{6}Li atoms close to a broad Feshbach scattering resonance. Focusing on the regime of strong repulsive interactions, we observe well-defined coherent quas...
