Paul, Minnesota that develops and markets products designed to treat sphincter
disorders utilizing its technology platform, Magnetic Sphincter
This investigation concluded that non-ablative radiofrequency application appeared to induce profound morphological changes in the sphincter
muscle that lead to an anatomical state reminiscent of the baseline sphincter
13 years of experience with artificial urinary sphincter
implantation at Baylor College of Medicine.
If, in fact, a workable and sustainable bioengineered replacement sphincter
could be perfected, how would it stack up for a Nobel Prize?
laceration was defined as a clinically recognizable third or fourth degree laceration.
Synergy between detrusor contraction simultaneously with smooth and striated sphincter
relaxation is extremely important for a balanced LUT.
This takes us one step closer to realizing the goal of using a patient's own cells to engineer a replacement sphincter
in the lab," stated Bitar.
Dysfunction of the upper oesophageal sphincter
is another proposed hypothesis (10,11).
These new cells regenerate the sphincter
and combat atrophy of the urethral submucosa, allowing the normal mechanisms of continence to be restored.
An anal sphincter
tear was also more likely to occur in women who had an episiotomy or a forceps assisted birth than women who did not receive these procedures.
Patients with hypertensive LES pressure (group A) had higher esophageal tone (43 versus 19 mm Hg) and less relaxation of the sphincter
(50% versus 67%) than did patients with normal/hypotensive LES pressure (group B).
of oddi dysfunction (SOD) is one of the causes for this entity.
