Abstract
To compare the 1-year (previously published) and 3-year objective and subjective cure rates, and complications, related to the use of a collagen-coated transvaginal mesh for anterior vaginal wall prolapse against a conventional anterior repair.
Randomised controlled study.
Six departments of obstetrics and gynaecology in Norway, Sweden, Finland, and Denmark.
A total of 138 women, of 55 years of age or older, admitted for stage =2 anterior vaginal wall prolapse.
The women scheduled for primary anterior vaginal wall prolapse surgery were randomised between conventional anterior colporrhaphy and surgery with a collagen-coated prolene mesh. All patients were evaluated using the Pelvic Organ Prolapse Quantification (POP-Q) assessment before and after surgery. Symptoms related to pelvic organ prolapse were evaluated using the Pelvic Floor Impact Questionnaire (PFIQ-7) and the Pelvic Floor Distress Inventory (PFDI-20).
Objective cure, defined as POP-Q stage

Abstract
To investigate the anatomical cure rate and complications related to collagen-coated mesh for cystocele, compared with a conventional anterior colporrhaphy.
A randomised controlled study.
Six departments of obstetrics and gynaecology in Norway, Sweden, Finland, and Denmark.
Women aged 55 years or older, referred for surgery with a prolapse of the anterior vaginal wall of stage 2 or higher.
Women scheduled for primary cystocoele surgery were randomised to either anterior colporrhaphy or a collagen-coated Prolene mesh. Power analysis indicated that 130 patients had to be randomised. All patients were evaluated using the Pelvic Organ Prolapse-Quantification (POP-Q) measurement. Quality of life, symptoms, and sexual function were evaluated using the Pelvic Floor Impact Questionnaire, the Pelvic Floor Distress Inventory, and the Pelvic Organ Prolapse/Urinary Incontinence Sexual Questionnaire.
The primary outcome was objective cure, defined as prolapse below POP-Q stage 2 at the 12-months follow-up. Secondary outcomes were quality of life, symptoms, and presence (or not) of complications.
In total, 161 women were randomised to either anterior colporrhaphy or mesh (participant ages 64.9 ± 6.4 years versus 64.7 ± 6.6 years, respectively; mean ± SD). The objective cure rate was 39.8% (95% CI 28.6-50.9%) in the anterior colporrhaphy group, compared with 88.1% (95% CI 80.7-95.6%) in the mesh group (P

Abstract
In a nested case-control study, calcium status was assessed by measurements of serum total calcium, magnesium, phosphate, ionized calcium, parathyroid hormone, albumin, total CO2 (bicarbonate), and free fatty acids in relation to gallstone formation. The subjects were recruited from a cohort study (n = 4,581) on the epidemiology of gallstones in Denmark. The cohort was examined with ultrasonography twice, in 1983 and 1988; 63 subjects developed gallstones, and among those who did not, 122 were randomly selected as controls. Subjects with gallstones had significantly increased serum concentrations of total calcium, magnesium, and bicarbonate as compared with normal subjects. The difference was only observed in women. Age, body mass index, alcohol consumption, and smoking did not influence the results when included as covariables in a logistic regression analysis. Multivariate analysis showed increased concentrations of magnesium, bicarbonate, and parathyroid hormone to be significantly associated with gallstone disease in women. No significant association was observed between gallstone disease and serum variables in men.

Abstract
Out of a total of 158 pregnant women, 55 accepted participation in a dietary investigation for seven days with the object of assessing the consumption of milk by pregnant women and the significance of this for the intake of energy-providing dietary constituents and certain minerals. The diet in pregnant women contained more fat (43.2%) and the relationship between polyunsaturated and saturated fatty acids (P/S-relationship) (0.25) was less than that recommended. The daily dietary content of fibre of 20.7 g/day was lower than the recommended intake. Calcium, phosphate and magnesium intakes constituted 180%, 131% and 64% respectively, of the recommended daily intake. The average intake of milk (buttermilk, skim milk, low fat milk and whole milk) was 482 g/day. The calcium content of the milk constituted, on an average, one third of the total calcium intake. The content of fat and saturated fatty acids in the milk constituted 7% and 10%, respectively, of the total intake. Four of the pregnant women had a daily calcium consumption of less than the recommended intake (1,000 mg/day). The same women had the lowest consumption of milk and energy in the group investigated. The results suggest that the dietary consumption is adequate to cover the calcium requirements. Extra calcium supplements should only be recommended for pregnant women with limited consumption of milk and other milk products. Pregnant women should be advised to take increased quantities of magnesium and to reduce the fat intake.

Abstract
A total of 589 women applying for termination of pregnancy (46% of the total number of applicants during a one-year period) completed a questionnaire concerning female anatomy, sexual information and contraceptive habits. Of these, 415 women had their pregnancy terminated at Hvidovre Hospital, Copenhagen (high abortion rate) and 174 in northern Jutland (low abortion rate). The two groups did not differ considerably in their replies. Mean age at the first coitus was on average 15.8 years, where a total of 36% had not used any contraception. Among those who were applying for termination of pregnancy, 34.1% had not used contraception, 13.4% had used unsafe methods and 23% had not used the method correctly, leaving a total of 60% at high risk of pregnancy. Information about contraception was in most cases given by the general practitioner (38%). An increased number of women with a high level of sexual knowledge from Copenhagen had less frequently used contraception as compared with those in Jutland. In conclusion the high discrepancy in abortion rate among the two areas can not be explained by differences in contraceptive habits.

Abstract
Twenty-four patients with mild to moderate primary hyperparathyroidism were followed for an average of 2.45 years with serial determinations of serum ionized calcium and intact parathyroid hormone (PTH). For the entire group serum ionized calcium remained stable, whereas serum PTH increased significantly. Eleven patients (group 1) demonstrated a significant increase in PTH with time. The remaining 13 patients formed group 2. Comparison of the changes (%) in each subgroup showed a small but significant increase in serum ionized calcium of 2.6% with time in group 1, while serum PTH increased by 78%. In group 2 serum ionized calcium remained stable whereas PTH increased modestly by 22%. Serum concentrations of creatinine were stable throughout the follow-up period in both groups. Despite the greater precision of serum ionized calcium, measurements of intact PTH are evidently more sensitive than measurements of serum ionized calcium for the detection of progression in primary hyperparathyroidism.

Abstract
A total of 589 women applying for termination of pregnancy completed a questionnaire about female anatomy and sexual information (46% replies). Of these 415 women had the pregnancy terminated in Hvidovre Hospital, Copenhagen (high abortion rate) and 174 in Aalborg Hospital in the northern Jutland (low abortion rate). The two groups showed great agreement in the replies. In 14% the sexual information was not acceptable and, especially among women under 20 years, the sexual information was poor. Only 13% of the women with poor sexual information considered that their knowledge should be increased, compared to 26% women with better knowledge. Most women received their first sexual information from their mothers and the general practitioners were the most used for further information. Most women were satisfied with the information given by their mothers and general practitioners. In conclusion, the present study did not explain the observed difference in abortion rate between the two regions.
