OBJECTIVES: Investigators sought to assess whether age was related to patient understanding of pelvic floor disorders; given studies show that increased age is associated with lower health literacy. METHODS: This was a cross-sectional survey of new urogynecology patients. Enrolled participants completed a survey including demographics, history of urinary incontinence (UI) and pelvic organ prolapse symptoms and treatment, the Prolapse and Incontinence Knowledge Questionnaire (PIKQ), self-assessment of UI and prolapse knowledge, and a pelvic anatomy diagram to label...

OBJECTIVES: This study aims to identify risk factors for elevated preoperative postvoid residual (PVR) and persistently elevated postoperative PVR and to evaluate the resolution rate of elevated PVR urine volume in patients undergoing reconstructive surgery for pelvic organ prolapse (POP). METHODS: This was a retrospective cohort study comparing 50 women with elevated preoperative PVR (≥100 mL) and 50 women with normal PVR (<100 mL). Preoperative demographic, physical examination, urodynamic data, type of surgery performed, and postoperative trial of void data were collected...

INTRODUCTION: This case describes diagnosis of a T2 transitional cell carcinoma in an 89-year-old woman with known cystocele and urinary retention managed with clean intermittent self-catheterization. CASE: While self-catheterizing, the patient noted a palpable mass in her cystocele. She eventually pursued urologic evaluation of this mass, which ultimately led to her diagnosis. This is the first reported case of transitional cell carcinoma being found on self-examination by palpating a cystocele...

The optimal degree of cystoscope to perform diagnostic cystoscopy is dependent on the surgeon's discretion because there are no studies addressing the superiority of one degree of cystoscope over another. The objective was to determine which lens, 70-degree versus 30-degree lens, was better in identifying lesions scattered throughout the bladder. METHODS: A simulation was created using 3 different artificial bladder models complete with sutures representing lesions placed at different locations in each bladder...

BACKGROUND: Rectoneovaginal fistulae (RnVFs) are abnormal connections between the rectum and a surgically created neovagina. Although very uncommon, they confer significant morbidity in patients and may require a multidisciplinary team approach to the repair. Risk factors for RnVF include rectal injury at the time of neovaginoplasty, malignancy in the neovagina, trauma (iatrogenic or otherwise), radiation, and neovaginal revision surgery. CASE DESCRIPTION: The patient is a 64-year-old transgender woman with recurrent RnVF following penile skin inversion neovaginoplasty, which was complicated by an intraoperative rectal injury...

INTRODUCTION: The risk of incomplete bladder evacuation requiring catheterization after intravesical onabotulinumtoxinA (BoNT-A) is well established. However, the rates reported in the literature are highly variable and low overall in clinical trials. We attempt to evaluate the rate of symptomatic acute urinary retention requiring catheterization after initial BoNT-A in a private practice setting of patients with idiopathic overactive bladder. METHODS: We performed a retrospective study from 2010 to 2014 for patients with idiopathic overactive bladder undergoing their first BoNT-A...

OBJECTIVES: Stress urinary incontinence in women is a common problem that significantly impacts quality of life. Periurethral injection of urethral bulking agents (UBAs) is a simple, noninvasive, and cost-effective treatment. However, complications associated with UBA are often underappreciated. Objective of this review was to get a complete overview of all published complications of UBA. METHODS: An extensive search of the scientific literature was conducted to quantitatively summarize the complications and their treatments of 8 UBAs...

INTRODUCTION: Cystoceles may cause urethral obstruction by altering the vesicourethral angle. Restoration of normal anatomy after pelvic organ prolapse (POP) repair can relieve this obstruction but may unmask stress urinary incontinence (SUI). The association between the severity of cystocele and developing de novo SUI after prolapse repair, however, is poorly understood. We hypothesized that, in women undergoing prolapse repair, increasing degrees of bladder prolapse would be associated with increasing rates of postoperative de novo SUI...

OBJECTIVE: Health literacy (HL) is the degree to which an individual can obtain, process, and communicate basic health information to make appropriate health decisions. Understanding HL of patients can improve outcomes. Thus, we evaluated HL in women with pelvic floor disorders and investigated its relationship to patient demographics, reading level, and cognition. METHODS: We conducted a cross-sectional study with a convenience sample of English-speaking women 18 years or older, recruited from female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery clinics from July 2016 to January 1, 2017...

We present a cadaveric case study of an 88-year-old woman with an unusual posterior perineal hernia containing small bowel, rectum, and mesentery. Dissection revealed several loops of the small bowel occupying the presacral space and displacement of the rectum into a large perineal evagination. The intestinal mucosa appeared to have been healthy at the time of death, and we did not find any indication of rectal prolapse. There was also no evidence of past surgery, suggestive of a primary hernia. We conclude this patient had a posterior enterorectal perineal hernia...

OBJECTIVES: Rectovaginal fistulas can occur from both obstetric and nonobstetric (eg, inflammatory bowel disease, iatrogenic, or traumatic) etiologies. Current data on factors contributing to rectovaginal repair success or failure are limited, making adequate patient counseling difficult. Our objective was to compare outcomes of transperineal rectovaginal fistula repair performed in a single referral center on women with obstetric and nonobstetric causes. METHODS: We performed a retrospective cohort study of women who had a transperineal rectovaginal fistula repair performed by a urogynecologist at the University of Michigan from 2005 to 2015...

BACKGROUND: Patients with Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster-Hauser (MRKH) syndrome are infertile secondary to hypoplasia or complete agenesis of the uterus, yet they remain at risk of primary neoplasms of the ovaries because embryologically the uterus and ovaries develop via separate mechanisms. CASE: A 72-year-old nulliparous woman with a history of primary amenorrhea underwent an exploratory laparotomy for a suspected uterine fibroid. In addition to the pelvic mass, the patient was found to have findings consistent with MRKH syndrome...

OBJECTIVE: We describe a novel way to calculate estimated blood loss (EBL) using an intraoperative pictographic tool in gynecologic surgery. METHODS: A pictographic tool to estimate sponge saturation was developed to calculate EBL during surgery. A prospective cohort of women 18 years or older undergoing benign vaginal hysterectomy with planned adnexal surgery at Mayo Clinic were consented for use of the pictographic tool. Demographic, preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative data were abstracted...
