SUMMARY / RELATED TOPICS

Rectocele

A rectocele or posterior vaginal wall prolapse results when the rectum herniates into or forms a bulge in the vagina. Two common causes of this defect are: childbirth, hysterectomy. Rectocele tends to occur with other forms of pelvic organ prolapse such as enterocele and cystocele. Although the term applies most to this condition in females, males can develop it. Rectoceles in men are uncommon, associated with prostatectomy. Mild cases may produce a sense of pressure or protrusion within the vagina, the occasional feeling that the rectum has not been emptied after a bowel movement. Moderate cases may involve difficulty passing stool, discomfort or pain during evacuation or intercourse, a general sensation that something is "falling down" or "falling out" within the pelvis. Severe cases may cause vaginal bleeding, intermittent fecal incontinence, or the prolapse of the bulge through the mouth of the vagina, or rectal prolapse through the anus. Digital evacuation, or, manual pushing, on the posterior wall of the vagina helps to aid in bowel movement in a majority of cases of rectocele.

Rectocele can be a cause of symptoms of obstructed defecation. Rectoceles result from the weakening of the pelvic floor called pelvic organ prolapse. Weakened pelvic structures occur as a result of an episiotomy during previous births decades later. Other causes of pelvic floor prolapse can be advanced age, multiple vaginal deliveries, birthing trauma. Birthing trauma includes vacuum delivery, forceps delivery, perineal tear. In addition, a history of chronic constipation and excessive straining with bowel movements are thought to play a role in rectocele. Multiple gynecological or rectal surgeries can lead to weakening of the pelvic floor. Births that involve babies over nine pounds in weight, or rapid births can contribute to the development of rectocele. A hysterectomy or other pelvic surgery can be a cause, as can chronic constipation and straining to pass bowel movements, it is more common in older women than in younger ones. Treatment depends on the severity of the problem, may include non-surgical methods such as changes in diet, pelvic floor exercises such as Kegel exercises, use of stool softeners, hormone replacement therapy for post-menopausal women and insertion of a pessary into the vagina.

A high fiber diet, consisting of 25–30 grams of fiber daily, as well as increased water intake, help to avoid constipation and straining with bowel movements, can relieve symptoms of rectocele. Surgery can be done to correct rectocele when symptoms continue despite the use of non-surgical management, are significant enough to interfere with activities of daily living. Surgery to correct the rectocele may involve the reattachment of the muscles that supported the pelvic floor. Another procedure is posterior colporrhaphy. Surgery may involve insertion of a supporting mesh. There are surgical techniques directed at repairing or strengthening the rectovaginal septum, rather than simple excision or plication of vaginal skin which provides no support. Both gynecologists and colorectal surgeons can address this problem. Potential complications of surgical correction of a rectocele include bleeding, dyspareunia, as well as recurrence or worsening of the rectocele symptoms; the use of synthetic or biologic grafts has been questioned.

The periodical was distributed in all European countries and in the provinces of the Ottoman empire located in northern Africa and Anatolia. Among the most known distributors of Albania was Shahin Kolonja, future publisher of Drita, the first magazine written in the Albanian language; the contents of Albania covered a wide range topics like history, archaeology, language and art, leading to the periodical being regarded as a mini-encyclopedia of Albanian culture of the era.

Baghmara (community development block)

Sauber C17

The Sauber C17 was the car with which the Sauber Formula One team competed in the 1998 Formula One season. It was driven by Jean Alesi, who joined from Benetton, Johnny Herbert, in his third season with the team after an impressive 1997 season. 1998 confirmed Sauber's position as a respectable midfield runner unable to make the final breakthrough needed to become a top team. The team's package was quick and reliable, but not quite enough to score points. Indeed and Herbert finished just outside the points, in seventh, no less than five times; the highlight of the year was Alesi's run to third at the 1998 Belgian Grand Prix to score the team's fourth podium since their F1 début in 1993. This capped an encouraging season for the Frenchman, duly kept on for another year. Herbert, despite a points finish in the first race of the season, lost his motivation after a sequence of bad luck and narrowly missing out on further points, he decided to move to Stewart for 1999, would be replaced by Pedro Diniz.

The team finished sixth in the Constructors' Championship with ten points. This was their best WCC position so far, but there was still some way to go to take on the likes of Ferrari and McLaren, it was with this car. All steering wheels have been rectangular since then.

Freehold Secondary

The Freehold Secondary is a active rail line in New Jersey, the active portion of, owned and operated by Conrail Shared Assets Operations. The portion, in use runs from Jamesburg, NJ, to the current end of service at Freehold, NJ. Technically, the line continues to a junction with the Southern Secondary in Farmingdale, NJ, but this portion has been out of service since the early 2000s; the Freehold and Jamesburg Agricultural Railroad was incorporated in 1851 to connect Freehold with the Camden and Amboy Railroad in Jamesburg. The first section between the aforementioned towns was opened to traffic in 1853. In 1868, the line was extended to a connection with the Northeast Corridor. On the other end of the line, a firm known as the Squankum and Freehold Marl Company built track from Freehold to Farmingdale in 1868, leased it to the Freehold and Jamesburg in the same year; the final link in the railroad, between Farmingdale and Sea Girt was built by the Farmingdale and Squan Village Railroad Company, incorporated on April 3, 1867, mandated to finish construction of their line by July 1, 1877.

Its line was leased to the Freehold and Jamesburg in 1874. In 1874, the line between Jamesburg and Monmouth Junction was sold to the Camden and Amboy Railroad. On May 24, 1879, the three companies were merged to form a new company called the Freehold and Jamesburg Agricultural Railroad Country. In the Board of Directors Election held on June 24, 1879, Strickland Kneass was elected president. Since June 1, 1879, the company's trackage has been operated by the Pennsylvania Railroad. Operation continued and prospered under the Pennsylvania Railroad, both freight and passenger trains used the line up until the Pennsylvania Cut its Trenton-Jamesburg-Sea Girt train on May 29, 1962; the line famously hosted dying President Garfield, his private train as it traveled from Washington, DC, to where he died in Elberon, NJ. In 1939, the line hosted the King and Queen of England's private train, en route to Red Bank, NJ. After dieselization, the line's passenger trains were a favorite with railfans because of their use of Doodlebugs, a gas electric car.

Freight service continued after the end of passenger service, but in 1964, the section between Sea Girt and Farmingdale was torn up, parts of which became the Edgar Felix Bikeway. In 1976, Conrail took over the operations of seven northeastern railroads, including the Penn Central, who operated the line after the 1968 merger of the Pennsylvania and the New York Central Railroad. Unlike other routes that it operated, Conrail did not abandon the remaining portions of the Freehold Secondary, but a 1978 division map marks the section between Freehold and Jamesburg as a "light density line." In the 1999 breakup of Conrail between Norfolk Southern Railway and CSX Transportation, the line went to Conrail Shared Assets, a joint switching and terminal railroad created in order to serve the New York and Detroit markets from both carriers. CSAO kept the entire line open, but since the early 2000s, there has not been a train east of the Prestone plant in Freehold. Conrail Local Freight WPSA-31 runs on Mondays, Wednesdays and at times, Fridays to Freehold to serve the remaining customers on the line: These include Prestone, receives Plastic Pellets and Chemical.
