I have a Burch procedure scheduled on Monday. I began to read up on retropubic anatomy and the Burch procedure. In January , as I dissected into the retropubic space laparoscopically, I was amazed at what I could see!

It felt like that was the first time I had ever been in the retropubic space. I gasped when I saw the ischial spine the first time! The arcus tendineus fascia of pelvis, arcus tendineus fascia of levator ani, obturator neurovascular bundle, pubovesical muscledall those anatomic landmarks just jumped out before my eyes! I did my first laparoscopic Burch procedure strictly following the criteria of the modified Tanago technique, and the surgery was a great success.

With the success of the laparoscopic Burch procedure, I started to see more patients with pelvic organ prolapse. The procedure of vaginal sacrospinosus suspension for Presidential Address vaginal vault prolapse was very popular in the s which was greatly promoted by the late Dr. David Nichols in Boston. Because I could readily identify the ischial spine and coccyeal muscle laparoscopically, I decided to perform laparoscopic sacrospinosus ligament suspension for vaginal vault prolapse shortly after my successful laparoscopic Burch operation.

Unfortunately, the laparoscopic sacrospinosus suspension did not turn out to be as good as I would have expected. It took too long to do the procedure on both sides.

A couple of my patients had severe buttock pain develop after surgery and required a second surgery to replace the suspension stitches to relieve the pain.

I eventually gave it up. Back in my residency days in Chicago, we performed vaginal uterosacral ligament suspension exclusively for our patients with vaginal vault prolapse with excellent long-term results. I still remember, as a junior resident assisting the procedure, on entering the cul-de-sac, that I had to hold the bladder straight up toward the operating room ceiling with a right angle Heaney retractor.

One time during the surgery, my attending asked me whether I had ever felt the ureter. I began to sweat, and my heart raced. We were taught to place suspension stitches up to the level of ischial spine, and we were instructed to tug the tissue with the needle still in it to ensure that we indeed had the uterosacral ligament. We were told that when we have the uterosacral ligament, we could actually move the whole patient!

We were also instructed to pay particular attention to the angle of the needle. When we place the uterosacral ligament stitches, the needle has to be horizontaldit can never be more than degrees. This will prevent catching the ureter, we were told. As I became more proficient in laparoscopic dissection, I had a strong desire to see what the uterosacral ligament actually looks like, and I wanted to see its relationship to the ureter, so I dissected it out laparoscopically, and then I tested its strength in a fresh cadaver when I got the chance.

I used 0-Vicryl sutured through the uterosacral ligament about 2 cm medial to the ischial spine and hooked the suture to the scale to test the strength of the uterosacral ligament on the fresh cadaver. The suture broke at about 17 pounds, but the uterosacral ligament did not tear. I then used 1-Vicryl double looped through the uterosacral ligament at the same site and again hooked it to the scale. I had one of my assistants hold the cadaver while another assistant tested the strength of the uterosacral ligament.

This double-looped 1-Vicyl broke at 38 pounds, and again the uterosacral ligament did not tear. This experiment greatly enhanced my confidence in the strength of the uterosacral ligament, which I have been using for my suspension procedures with excellent results. The video of this experiment has been shown at my AAGL postgraduate course many times.

The Road Less Traveled was an exciting road, but not without bumps. Meanwhile, I was experiencing increasing suspicion from my OB-GYN colleagues who were trying their best to undermine operative laparoscopy, especially laparoscopic hysterectomy!

When asked by their patients, they would respond by saying that this was an experimental procedure or that their particular condition was not amenable to this type surgery. They began a crusade to prevent me from continuing. Suddenly one day about 4 months after I started to do laparoscopic hysterectomy, the OB-GYN department chair at our community hospital sent me a letter notifying me that I did not have the privilege for such a dangerous and experimental procedure and thus would no longer be permitted to continue.

Nevertheless, I was informed that if a patient sued me because of complications of laparoscopic hysterectomy, I could expect my OB-GYN colleagues to be more than willing to testify against me. I knew that if local colleagues testified against me, I would be accused of practicing medicine that deviated from community standards. Scott Peck PDF 1. Update on: Android Accessibility Suite 7.

B u t h o w a r e souls different from egos? F o r m a n y secularists. Earlier I defined the soul as "a God-created. In this respect. T h e latter explanation I can live w i t h. O n e of the biggest differences between the soul a n d the ego is that the ego is closer to the surface of w h o we are or be- lieve o u r s e l v e s t o b e.

Most p e o p l e think of prayer as simply "speaking to God. But what is prayer? This type of prayer is often r e f e r r e d to as con- templative prayer. A n d usually it is wordless. Rightly or wrongly. Although t h e r e is great virtue in b o t h public a n d formal prayer.

H e n c e perfection must be unchanging. Butterscotch sauce. I scratched my h e a d. A n d t h e closer to perfection we are. A n d if we see ourselves or o u r organizations suffering. It's alive. So take a n o t h e r inexplicable hu- m a n. We thirst because t h e r e is drink. But m a k e no mistake: True glory is ours only insofar as we s u b m i t ourselves to t h e true G o d. On the one hand. B u t t o a considerable extent I can choose to decently nurture or n o t n u r t u r e myself.

On the other.

God is unquestionably o u r creator. T h e c o n c e p t of "cocreatorship" a n d the responsibility it entails have b e c o m e quite p o p u l a r in theology in r e c e n t years. Concluded by commenting. Darling Lord: Note my words. You c r e a t e d me to be precise with words. Without intent. At thirteen I went to b o a r d i n g school.

Is it? This business of revelation. I cannot handle: And those coincidences Which might be merely amusing If they could be u n d e r s t o o d as such.

Of setting Yourself aside F o r t h e s a k e o f love. To Your namelessness. To Your a p p a r e n t absence W h e n I want Your presence. Utterly unpredictable. To Your unpredictability. Coming to me Whenever. W i t h gladness. To publicly acknowledge Your P e r s o n h o o d?

I am so slow. I d i d it myself.

I w a n t e d To be sophisticated. But You have a personality. As we are accustomed to think Of bodies. Most important. You a r e n o cipher. A personality definite b e y o n d o u r own. A personality vibrant beyond o u r imagination. I sense the awesome energy R e q u i r e d. I can only assume Y o u suffer so o v e r us all. But never have I sensed in You O n e s e c o n d o f despair.

You are. Your delight in Your creation seems constant. Unlike m e. Never threaten or punish. I do not know the boundaries Of your power. Having l o n g ago forever forsaken T h e capacity to destroy Anything.
