Top tags: authors 2011  AUTHORS NEEDED FOR MY LAST LECTURE IN..... 

commercial advertisements

Posted By Alex Digesu, Wednesday, September 28, 2011

Dear all,

I hope everyone is well. First of all I would like to congratulate everyone who has contributed to the last NL, which is now available online. I hope everyone likes it! As you might know one of the main issue of the NL is the printing and mailing costs. I would like to consider including commercial advertisements to cover some of our costs. This will allow us to include more pictures, to increase the word limits for the authors and to include the work of all contributors. Please let me know whether or not you would like to consider this option and/or have any objections.

Yours sincerely

Alex

Nerve re-routing for neurogenic bladders: Should we cover this topic?

Posted By Alex Digesu, Friday, May 6, 2011

Dear all,

as most of you are aware the concept of nerve re-routing for neurogenic bladders still represents a controversial topic.

Should we cover this topic in the NL? As hot topic with someone who write in favour and somebody else who write against? In the historic corner? Or do you think it is not a topic of interest for the membership of IUGA.

Please find a a brief summary of the concept

Re-routing of a somatic nerve to an autonomic nerve is not a new idea. The concept was first studied in 1920’s. At the 2010 AUA meeting Peters et al presented their early experience on 9 patients in Ann Harbor and recently reported their 36-month follow up data. The authors demonstrated that nerve rerouting surgery could be technically performed and that some modulation of bladder function occurs with nerve rerouting. Whether or not this is fully a consequence of nerve rerouting surgery or cord untethering is still to be demonstrated. Therefore the concept of nerve re-routing is still controversial and. In mid October 2010, a group of experts, met in South Florida to review the existing data of the nerve re-routing and to decide the position of the International Continence Society about this technique and concluded that: this technique must be pursued in myelomeningocele patients but only within well-developed clinical research protocols lumbo sacral re-routing techniques must not be used in patients with other neurogenic bladder etiologies (in particular spinal cord injury) until more knowledge emerges from animal research more work has to be done on outcomes in pediatric

These are the expert in this area who might be invited as contributors:

Everyone can be an author!

Posted By Alex Digesu, Sunday, March 20, 2011

Dear all,

please note that authors can also be IUGA members who are not involved in the Publication Committee. Therefore feel free to suggest anyone you think would be interested (as expertise in a particular area) in writing a 500 words commentary on the specific topic we have choosen.

“About my last trip to…..” by….. AUTHORS NEEDED

Posted By Alex Digesu, Monday, February 28, 2011


IUGA members are often invited to give lectures abroad especially in places and countries where it is hard to believe that urogynaecology is an area of interest and development (eg Sudan, St John’s Island, Nepal, Ethiopia etc).

The Newsletter should be a communication tool between members.

I was thinking to add in the NL a "new" corner called "About my last trip to…..” by…..

Everyone is welcome writing a 300 words article about his/her last lecture given in...., place visited etc.

Any ideas? Any suggestions? Any volunteer?

THE LITERATURE CORNER: AUTHORS NEEDED

Posted By Alex Digesu, Wednesday, February 23, 2011
Updated: Thursday, May 5, 2011

Dear COMMITTEE MEMBER,

Your input is needed. Please discuss and suggest authors: 


A brief overview of the most recently published data on specific topics in different urogynaecological fields.

This is a new category we want to implement.

It was agreed and the following topics were suggested:

- Chronic pelvic pain (Mark Malak)

- Sexual function before and after continence/prolapse surgery?

- The role of Magnetic Resonance Imaging of the pelvic floor in the clinical and research practice.

- New treatments such as Minislings: is there any future?

-TOO POSH TO PUSH? "Elective caesarean section vs vaginal delivery.”

Any other suggestions?

Thank you. I am looking forward to your response.

CONTROVERSIES IN UROGYNAECOLOGY CORNER: AUTHORS NEEDED

Posted By Monika Hartley, Wednesday, February 23, 2011
Updated: Wednesday, February 23, 2011
Dear COMMITTEE MEMBER, 

Your input is needed. Please discuss: 

Hottest topics in Urogynaecology/ Controversies in Urogynaecology This is a new category we want to implement. 

Are these the right approaches? 
Novelty – author A writes about news in UroGyn, B states the pro, C states the contra
Neutral – author A writes a neutral story about a controversy and we collect pro and contra from membership and publish responses     Pro/Contra – author A writes Pro and author B writes the contra 

Please suggest authors for the following full page stories: 

1. Detachments or avulsion of the puborectalis muscle: is it a myth?
Pro:
Against:
 
2. Should the TVT be all retropubic?
Pro: Soren Brostrom
Against: Jean Deleval

3. Synthetic meshes for the posterior compartment .
Pro: 
Against:

4. Lasertherapy in urogynaecology: a myth or reality?
Pro:
Against:
 
5.  How about synthetic meshes for the anterior compartment. There are a few recent studies to suggest it does not improve patients symptoms.
Pro: 
Against:

6. Also we could debate on using patient symptoms vs anatomic findings as a primary outcome for prolapse surgery trials.
Pro: 
Against:

Any other suggestions?

Alex Digesu
Thank you. I am looking forward to your response.
