Female genital prolapse is characterized by a portion of the vaginal canal protruding (prolapsing) the opening of the vagina. This can be treated by placing vaginal mesh devices via either the abdominal or vaginal way. The standard procedure is via the abdominal canal as this is generally associated with less side effects.
However, in specific conditions (anterior or apical prolapse), the vaginal procedure can be less risky than the abdominal procedure and should therefore be preferred.

Although many types of cancer treatments exist, sound decision strategies as to which treatment is the most suitable for a cancer patient are scarce. Also, with the advent of the Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) technology in the Belgian healthcare landscape, opportunities especially arise for genomic criteria to be included in the cancer treatment decision strategy.
PRECISION aims to link patients with specific cancer genotypes to matched cancer treatments. Advices from each of the university hospital’s local Medical Advisory Board (MAB) as well as from the central MAB will be...
Osseo-integrated prostheses involve direct contact between the titanium implant and the bone. They provide an alternative for patients who cannot use conventional socket prostheses, because of recurrent skin infections, ulceration in the socket contact area, a short residual limb or extensive skin grafting.
For a well-defined group of patients, this type of prostheses has proven to be efficient and safe. Hence, the commission de remboursement des implants et des dispositifs medicaux invasifs (CRIDMI) of the RIZIV-INAMI recently decided to reimburse osseo-integrated...
Oncofreezing is a project which involves a reimbursement by the mandatory health insurance concerning the collection, freezing and conserving of gametes or gonadal tissue prior to an anticancer treatment or prior to a preventive oophorectomy. This is done in order to safeguard the possibility of procreation of the patients who might want to make use of medically assisted procreation or the re-implantation of gonadal tissue in a later life phase.
For the support of Oncofreezing, a convention is agreed upon between RIZIV-INAMI and the care centres.
