Urogynaecologia International Journal , 2010, DOI: 10.4081/uij.2005.5
Abstract: The new tension-free techniques for treatment of either stress urinary incontinence or pelvic organ prolapse are shown. They are divided as follows. Techniques for the anterior compartment: TVT (Tension-free Vaginal Tape), Retropubic TUS (Tension-free Urethral Suspension), TOT (Transobturator Tape), Prepubic TUS (Tension-free Urethral Suspension), TCR (Tension-Free Cystocele Repair), Retropubic TICT (Tension-free Incontinence Cystocele Treatment), Prepubic TICT (Tension-free Incontinence Cystocele Treatment); Techniques for the apical compartment: Indirect abdominal colposacropexy; Techniques for the postero- apical compartment: Posterior IVS; Techniques for the posterior compartment: Colpoperineoplasty with mesh. Both a correct diagnosis and an appropriate procedure are the right key to achieve a greater therapeutic success.
Laparoscopic application of Mesh in the treatment of pelvic floor disorders: a review of the literature
V. Leanza,F. Genovese,M. Bologna
Urogynaecologia International Journal , 2010, DOI: 10.4081/uij.2007.5
Abstract: The use of laparoscopically introduced mesh was adopted in order to correct all pelvic floor disorders, however today laparoscopic prostheses tend to be used increasingly for patients with prevailing apical prolapse: III and IV degree hysterocele and/or post-hysterectomy prolapse of the vaginal vault. The co-existence of other defects, for example cystocele and/or III degree rectocele, urethral hypermobility and/or urethrocele with associated urinary incontinence and above all the presence of these defects in an isolated form, usually indicates a vaginal surgical approach. Therefore the operation in which the application of laparoscopically introduced prostheses prevails is indirect promontory colpopexy (or sacrocolpopexy) and hysterosacropexy. At the beginning of the ‘90s, Dorsey [1] and Nezhat [2] were the first authors to describe laparoscopic sacral colpopexy, with dissection of the vagina anterior to the bladder and posterior to the rectum, in order to apply the mesh to the anterior and posterior wall of the vagina. The method then became widely used and was perfected, and it tended increasingly to be performed together with the laparotomic approach. Wattiez [3] even claims that the laparoscopic approach is better than the vaginal and/or laparotomic approach for the treatment and/or prevention, not only of apical genital prolapse, but of the whole range of pelvic floor disorders. Therefore, considering the growing importance of the laparoscopic prosthetic correction of apical defects, the authors, on the basis of a revision of the literature, describe the following aspects: rational of the technique, type of prosthetic materials used, controversies regarding the method of application of the mesh and whether or not hysterectomy is also to be performed..........
Topical estrogenic therapy and urgency/frequency syndrome
Urogynaecologia International Journal , 2010, DOI: 10.4081/uij.2000.11
Abstract: In this study we elected postmenopausal patients suffering from urgency/frequency syndrome. Estriol in the form of vaginal cream was applied for a total of fifteen weeks. The outcome was positive (cured or rimproved) in 89.3 of cases.

Abstract: The purpose of this retrospective study is to evaluate the safety and the efficacy of a new surgical procedure for correcting both incontinence and cystocele. This method of Tension-free Incontinence Cystocele Treatment (T.I.C.T.) consists in using a polypropylene fly shaped mesh made up of a central body (positioned under both the urethra and the bladder) and two wings (which cross the Retzius and reach the suprapubic area after being pulled up with a modified Stamey needle, under digital control). Seventy patients with stress urinary incontinence and severe cystocele underwent the T.I.C.T. procedure. Their mean age was 56 years (range 40-78), the average follow up was 18 months (range 2-36 months). The objective cure rate was 90% for incontinence and 94.3% for cystocele. No intra-operative complications occurred. Postoperative complications included 2 cases (3%) of voiding difficulty, one case of de novo instability, and one case of erosion and granuloma. Neither bladder perforation nor vascular damage was found. These data show the low risks and the good results of this treatment.
Acute Mesenteric Ischemia: A Challenging Diagnostic Disease—Four Cases Reports and Literature Review (AMI)  [PDF]
Danilo Coco, Silvana Leanza
Advances in Molecular Imaging (AMI) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/ami.2018.84006
Abstract: Acute Mesenteric Ischemia (A.M.I.) is a potentially life-threatening condition syndrome due to inadequate or completely absent blood supply through superior or inferior mesenteric artery. The etiologies are various. Early diagnosis is essential to improve the clinical outcome. Despite advances in knowledge of pathophysiology, laboratory diagnosis and imaging techniques, acute intestinal ischemia is still associated with mortality rates.

Abstract: Gestational thrombocytopenia (GT) is commonly observed in pregnancies with otherwise limited obstetric and hematologic complications.However, few data are available on the natural history of the disease, and on the recurrence of thrombocytopenia in subsequent pregnancies.37 consecutive patients with GT were enrolled in a prospective study, with a total of 36 pregnancies observed. Vaginal delivery was carried out in 33/41 (80%); two patients were transfused with packed red cells for obstetric hemorrhage (post-partum uterine atony).Mothers and their related foetuses- newborns were evaluated retrospectively for symptoms and/or signs of external and internal haemorrhage throughout pregnancy and early puerperium, even in relationship with mode of delivery (caesarean section versus spontaneous vaginal delivery). This study according to the literature confirm that all observed cases of GT have an uncomplicated course with no related perinatal and maternal morbidity even in patients with initial platelet count < 75.000/ml independently from the route of delivery. The Authors conducted a retrospective study concerning maternal platelet count fluctuation during pregnancy and puerperium and its correlation with the newborn’s platelet level in a group of 36 patients referred to the haematology-clinic of the Santo Bambino Hospital, c/o Azienda Ospedaliero-Universitaria Policlinico-Vittorio Emanuele, Catania, Italy for gestational thrombocytopenia (GT) and who delivered at the same hospital during a period of 4 years, from January 2006 to December 2009.

Abstract: The primary symptoms of overactive bladder (OAB) include urinary urgency and frequency, with or without urge incontinence. OAB is urodynamically characterised by involuntary contractions of the detrusor muscles of the bladder. Despite the growing awareness of OAB as a chronic medical condition, little is known about the disease’s economic burden. Urodynamic diagnoses of detrusor overactivity, mixed incontinence, and stress incontinence with OAB are associated with significantly worse incontinence related bother and health related quality of life (QL) compared to those with stress incontinence without OAB [1,2,3].
Die Geschichte des Kommenden. Zur Historizit t der Zukunft im Anschluss an Luhmann und Foucault/The History of What is to Come. On the Historicity of the Future in the Aftermath of Luhmann and Foucault
Matthias Leanza
Behemoth : a Journal on Civilisation , 2011,
Abstract: This article raises the question: to what extent does future itself have a history? In reviewing thetheories of Niklas Luhmann and Michel Foucault, modal time (past, present, future) will be deontologizedand attributed to the operations of an observer. Luhmann’s discussion of Edmund Husserl’sPhenomenology of Inner Time Consciousness and Michel Foucault’s critical appraisal of ImmanuelKant’s Transcendental Idealism provide arguments for a temporalization of time. Hence the historicalsemantics and political technologies involved in the construction of future horizons become ofmajor interest.

Las principales discordancias del Mesozoico de la Cuenca Neuquina según observaciones de superficie
Leanza,Héctor A.;
Revista del Museo Argentino de Ciencias Naturales , 2009,
Abstract: a general summary of the main unconformities which produced major order break-ups during the evolution of the mesozoic sedimentary infill of the neuquén basin is offered in this paper. based on its hierarchy, they are categorized in three groups, as follows: 1) key unconformities widely spread along the whole basin; 2) "intracuyan" unconformities related to the dorsal de huincul, and 3) "intraprecuyan" unconformities restricted to isolated depocentres. having into account tectonic, eustatic, paleoclimatic and/or paleontological aspects of the sedimentites situated below- and above of each unconformity, precisions about their ages are given. the number of the recognized key unconformities sums 10, as follows: huarpican (intratriassic), rioatuelican (intraliassic), lotenican (intracallovian), araucanican (ca. oxfordian/kimmeridgian boundary), huncalican (intravalanginian), coihuequican (intrahauterivian), pampatrilican (intrabarremian), pichineuquenican (intraaptian), patagonidican (ca. albian/cenomanian boundary) and huantraiquican (intracampanian). in relationship with the area realated with the dorsal de huincul, three "intracuyan" unconformities were identified, as follows: the intratoarcian, only recognized at subsurface, the seguelican (intrabajocian 1) and the lohanmahuidican (intrabajocian 2). however, the influence of these unconformities diminish towards northern areas of the basin, as the distance increase with regard to the cited morphostructural element. the "intraprecuyan" unconformities recorded in the cordillera del viento and chachil depocentres are of local character and less hierarchy. they are the result of short interruptions in the volcano-sedimentary infill of these halfgrabens. given its geographical restriction to the cited depocentres, no formal names were ascribed to these unconformities. once defined the key unconformities, a summary in three tables of genetically related formational units bounded by them, using the classical lithostratigra
