INTRODUCTION: Ureteric injuries are among the most serious complications of pelvic surgery. The incidence in low-resource settings is not well documented. METHODS: This retrospective review analyzes a cohort of 365 ureteric injuries with ureterovaginal fistulas in 353 women following obstetric and gynecologic operations in 11 countries in Africa and Asia, all low-resource settings. The patients with ureteric injury were stratified into three groups according to the initial surgery: (a) obstetric operations, (b) gynecologic operations, and (c) vesicovaginal fistula (VVF) repairs...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: Innovations in suturing devices have facilitated sacrospinous ligament fixation (SSF) for the correction of vaginal vault prolapse. It is uncertain if outcomes using suturing devices differ from those using a traditional suturing technique. We hypothesize that no difference exists in the efficacy and safety 1 year after SSF for vault prolapse performed with suturing devices or using a traditional technique. The objective was to compare SSF using a suturing device with traditional SSF for the treatment of vault prolapse, regarding symptoms of prolapse recurrence, patient satisfaction, incidence of re-operation, and complications 1 year postoperatively...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: We aimed to assess the pull-out strength of barbed and nonbarbed sutures used in sacrocolpopexy mesh fixation. We hypothesized there are no differences in the force needed to dislodge mesh from tissue using barbed and nonbarbed sutures of similar size. METHODS: Using the rectus fascia of three unembalmed cadavers, a 6 × 3 cm strip of polypropylene mesh was anchored to the fascia with sutures. The barbed sutures investigated were 2-0 V-Loc 180 (nine trials) and 3-0 bidirectional Quill™ SRS PDO (five trials)...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: In this study, we planned to explore the effects of sodium bicarbonate orally (NaHCO3) treatment on female patients with lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) who have acidic urine pH values (<6). METHODS: NaHCO3 was given orally to 33 female patients for 4 weeks at a dose of 2 × 4 g/day. Laboratory values, bladder diary, the Patient Perception of Bladder Condition Score (PPBC), Patient Perception of Intensity of Urgency Scale (PPIUS), Overactive Bladder-Validated 8-question Awareness tool (OAB-V8), Pelvic Pain and Urgency & Frequency Patient Symptom Scale tests (PUFSS), and the King's Health Questionnaire (KHQ) scores before and after treatment were compared...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: The objective of this study was to describe surgeons' current practices in InterStim® programming after initial implantation and their knowledge of programming parameters. We hypothesized that surgeons performing their own reprogramming would have increased knowledge. METHODS: We administered a written survey to attendees at the Society of Gynecologic Surgeons Scientific Meeting and analyzed those on which surgeons indicated they offer InterStim® care...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: Uterine preservation in uterine prolapse is an option for young patients. We hypothesized that sacrospinous hysteropexy (SSH) with anchorage to both the anterior and posterior cervix (SSH-ap) would have a better outcome than SSH with anchorage to the posterior cervix only (SSH-p). METHODS: This was a retrospective study including 75 patients who underwent SSH at Chang Gung Memorial Hospital between March 2008 and August 2013. Five were excluded due to incomplete data...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: The midurethral sling is the most commonly performed surgical procedure for stress urinary incontinence (SUI). We compared the efficacy of transobturator tape (TOT) and retropubic (RP) slings by evaluating objective and subjective cure rates at 12 months postsurgery and evaluate the impact on quality of life (QoL) and record intra- and postoperative complications. METHODS: This was a randomized, controlled, prospective, clinical trial with analysis of noninferiority...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: Urinary dipsticks and culture analyses of a mid-stream urine specimen (MSU) at 10(5) cfu ml(-1) of a known urinary pathogen are considered the gold standard investigations for diagnosing urinary tract infection (UTI). However, the reliability of these tests has been much criticised and they may mislead. It is now widely accepted that pyuria (≥1 WBC μl(-1)) detected by microscopy of a fresh unspun, unstained specimen of urine is the best biological indicator of UTI available...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: The aims of this study were to determine the prevalence, symptom characteristics, risk factors and impact on quality of life (QoL) of urinary incontinence (UI) in female outpatients in Singapore, to describe the attitudes of these women towards UI, and to investigate the barriers to healthcare-seeking behaviour in symptomatic women. METHODS: This was a cross-sectional study in a convenience sample and 249 women enrolled from outpatient clinics...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: Standardized measures enable the comparison of outcomes across providers and treatments giving valuable information for improving care quality and efficacy. The aim of this project was to define a minimum standard set of outcome measures and case-mix factors for evaluating the care of patients with overactive bladder (OAB). METHODS: The International Consortium for Health Outcomes Measurement (ICHOM) convened an international working group (WG) of leading clinicians and patients to engage in a structured method for developing a core outcome set...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: Ureteral injuries are well-known complications of any gynecologic surgery. We evaluated the safety and feasibility of ureteroscopic double-J (DJ) ureteral stenting in patients with distal ureteral injuries after gynecologic surgery. METHODS: Eleven consecutive patients with an iatrogenic ureteral injury in the distal ureter secondary to gynecologic surgery underwent DJ ureteral stenting between March 2008 and January 2016. Ureteral leakage and stricture were appraised using intravenous pyelography...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: The objective of this trial was to evaluate whether avoiding episiotomy can decrease the risk of advanced perineal tears. MATERIAL AND METHODS: In this randomized (1:1) parallel-group superiority trial, primiparous women underwent randomization into standard care (155 cases) vs. no episiotomy (154 cases) groups. The primary endpoint was the incidence of advanced (3rd- and 4th-degree) perineal tears. Secondary outcomes included perineal integrity, suturing characteristics, second-stage duration, incidence of postpartum hemorrhage, neonatal variables, and various postpartum symptoms 2 days and 2 months after delivery...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: Pelvic floor disorders (PFDs) negatively affect quality of life in the general population, and their prevalence in gynecologic cancer survivors has not been systematically described. This study aimed to determine the prevalence of PFDs in cancer survivors. We hypothesized that the prevalence of PFDs in the gynecologic cancer population would be higher than in the general female population. METHODS: We searched PubMed (1809 to present), EMBASE (1974 to present), and the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL) through May 2017...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: The aim of this study was to compare outcomes after uterosacral ligament suspension (USLS) or sacrocolpopexy for symptomatic stage IV apical pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and evaluate predictors of prolapse recurrence. METHODS: The medical records of patients managed surgically for stage IV apical POP from January 2002 to June 2012 were reviewed. A follow-up survey was sent to these patients. The primary outcome, prolapse recurrence, was defined as recurrence of prolapse symptoms measured by validated questionnaire or surgical retreatment...
