To mesh or not to mesh: a review of pelvic organ reconstructive surgery
International Journal of Women's Health via PubMed Central
Pelvic organ prolapse is a major health issue with a lifetime risk of undergoing at least one surgical intervention estimated at close to 10 percent. In the 1990s, the risk of reoperation after primary standard vaginal procedure was estimated to be as high as 30 percent to 50 percent. In order to reduce the risk of relapse, gynecological surgeons started to use mesh implants in pelvic organ reconstructive surgery with the emergence of new complications.

Turn-amplitude analysis as a diagnostic test for myofascial syndrome in patients with chronic pelvic pain
Pain Research & Management via PubMed Central
A case-control study was performed, and patients were consecutively sampled within a specified period of time. A total of 128 patients were included: 64 patients with CPP (32 men and 32 women) and 64 control patients (32 men and 32 women). The same operator conducted all tests. Electromyography of the TAA is based on the collection of motor unit potentials that measure the number of changes in the signal and the mean amplitude of the changes. The electromyogram transfers the data to a graphical point cloud, which enables the patient's results to be compared with the results of the healthy subjects.
