This book demonstrates knowledge on tissue-based procedures for stress urinary incontinence and other pelvic floor related topics. As the field shifts away from using synthetic material for repair, this work presents a new perspective on native tissue repair from the opinions and research of the authors.
Written by a panel of expert authors in the field, this text provides high quality, focused information that is complimented by illustrations and videos. With established track records the authors illustrate how to perform the procedure vaginally or through open surgery, and inclusion of live surgeries via online video, makes this an invaluable tool for busy surgeons and specialists interested in pelvic floor reconstruction.
Prof. Philippe E. Zimmern, MD, FACSJane and John Justin Distinguished Chair in Urology.Prof. Zimmern's specialty has gradually evolved to become an explanter of transvaginal mesh and midurethral sling (MUS) devices. He has published several articles related to these removal procedures and their outcomes.Prof. Zimmern has remained committed to pelvic floor reconstruction and is loyal to traditional procedures to correct both SUI and/or Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP) with a patient's own tissues.
Dr. Elise De has used a conservative approach to synthetic materials but uses native tissue repair preferentially.
