1. Automatic classification of tissues on pelvic MRI based on relaxation times and support vector machine. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Automatic classification of tissues on pelvic MRI based on relaxation times and support vector machine. Tissue segmentation and classification in MRI is a challenging task due to a lack of signal intensity standardization. MRI signal is dependent on the acquisition protocol, the coil profile, the scanner type, etc. While we can compute quantitative physical tissue properties independent of the hardware and the sequence parameters, it is still difficult to leverage these physical properties (...) to segment and classify pelvic tissues. The proposed method integrates quantitative MRI values (T1 and T2 relaxation times and pure synthetic weighted images) and machine learning (Support Vector Machine (SVM)) to segment and classify tissues in the pelvic region, i.e.: fat, muscle, prostate, bone marrow, bladder, and air. Twenty-two men with a mean age of 30±14 years were included in this prospective study. The images were acquired with a 3 Tesla MRI scanner. An inversion recovery-prepared turbo spin

2. Non-relaxing Pelvic Floor Dysfunction is an Underestimated Complication of Ileal Pouch-Anal Anastomosis. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Non-relaxing Pelvic Floor Dysfunction is an Underestimated Complication of Ileal Pouch-Anal Anastomosis. Nonrelaxing pelvic floor dysfunction (N-RPFD), or dyssynergic defecation, is the paradoxical contraction and/or impaired relaxation of pelvic floor and anal muscles during defecation. Few studies have evaluated this disorder in patients with an ileal pouch-anal anastomosis (IPAA). We investigated the frequency of N-RPFD in patients with and without chronic pouchitis following IPAA

Effect of intravaginal vibratory versus electric stimulation on the pelvic floor muscles: A randomized clinical trial. According to the International Urogynecological Association and International Continence Society people with normal pelvic floor muscle function should have the ability to voluntarily and involuntarily contract and relax these muscles. However, many women are unaware of their pelvic floor, and it is estimated that about 30-50% do not know how to actively contract these muscles (...) . Within this context, therapeutic strategies to improve pelvic floor muscle strength and function are particularly relevant.To compare the use of an intravaginal vibratory stimulus (IVVS) versus intravaginal electrical stimulation (IVES) on pelvic floor muscle functionality in women with pelvic floor dysfunctions who cannot voluntarily contract these muscles.Randomized clinical trial performed at a tertiary care hospital from June 2016 to September 2017.

Comparison of whole body sagittal alignment during directed versus natural, relaxed standing postures in young, healthy adults. Imaging for adult spinal deformity is conventionally performed in a directed manner to assess the most upright standing posture one can assume. However, this method does not reflect an individual's natural, relaxed posture, which is the posture a patient likely reverts to post-operatively, and also the posture likely to explain spinal pathologies.To identify

18. The effect of pelvic motion on spino-pelvic parameters. (Abstract)

The effect of pelvic motion on spino-pelvic parameters. To date, many studies have examined how pelvic position affects the spinal curvature and spinopelvic parameters. However, these studies focus on a static relationship, comparing pelvis and spine in a relaxed or baseline position only. Indeed, the spinopelvic connection is dynamic, as subjects can easily be taught to rotate their pelvis anteriorly or posteriorly on the femoral head, all while maintaining an erect posture. Therefore (...) , for a true understanding of pelvic influence on the spinal column, it is necessary to examine spinopelvic parameters in multiple pelvic positions within the same subject.The objective of this study was to examine the dynamic effect of pelvic motion on the spine and associated radiographic parameters.This is a single-center, cross-sectional study of 50 healthy, asymptomatic volunteers.Subjects were recruited and screened based on the following criteria: between 18 and 79 years of age; no known spinal

included 14 men who underwent physical therapy for idiopathic CPPS from October 2015 to October 2016. Men with clearly identifiable causes of pelvic pain, such as previous surgery, chronic infection, trauma, prostatitis and epididymitis were excluded. Treatment included: (I) manual therapy (internal and external) of pelvic floor and abdominal musculature to facilitate relaxation of muscles; (II) therapeutic exercises to promote range of motion, improve mobility/flexibility and strengthen weak muscles (...) ; (III) biofeedback to facilitate strengthening and relaxation of pelvic floor musculature; (IV) neuromodulation for pelvic floor muscle relaxation and pain relief. GUPI questionnaires were collected at initial evaluation and after the 10th visit. Higher scores reflect worse symptoms. Previous validation of the GUPI calculated a reduction of 7 points to robustly predict being a treatment responder (sensitivity 100%, specificity 76%) and a change in 4 points to predict modest response.
