INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: Stress urinary incontinence is common among women. First-line treatment includes pelvic floor muscle training (PFMT) and lifestyle advice, which can be provided via a mobile app. The efficacy of app-based treatment has been demonstrated in a randomized controlled trial (RCT). In this study, we aimed to analyze factors associated with successful treatment. METHODS: Secondary analysis of data from the RCT. At baseline and 3-month follow-up, participants (n = 61) answered questions about symptoms, quality of life, background, and PFMT...

INTRODUCTION: Anterior colporrhaphy (AC) is considered a standard procedure and is performed all over the world. However, not a single step of the procedure has ever been truly standardized and the rates of failure show a wide range in the literature from 0% up to 92%. The aim of this systematic review was to evaluate the differences in technique and procedure worldwide. METHODS: We performed a systematic literature search up to March 2016 using the MeSH terms "(anterior AND (colporrhaph* or colporhaph* or repair* or cystocel*)" using Preferred Reporting Items for Sytematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses (PRISMA)...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: We studied the geometry of and changes in structures that play an important role in stabilizing the pelvic system during pregnancy using a numerical system at different gestational ages and postpartum. METHODS: We developed a parturient numerical model to assess pelvic structures at different gestational stages (16, 32, and 38 weeks) and postpartum (2 months and 1 year) using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Organs, muscles, and ligaments were segmented to generate a 3D model of the pelvis...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: For transgender men (TGM), gender-affirmation surgery (GAS) is often the final stage of their gender transition. GAS involves creating a neophallus, typically using tissue remote from the genital region, such as radial forearm free-flap phalloplasty. Essential to this process is vaginectomy. Complexity of vaginal fascial attachments, atrophy due to testosterone use, and need to preserve integrity of the vaginal epithelium for tissue rearrangement add to the intricacy of the procedure during GAS...

Zhuoran Chen, Jerome Melon
Podcasts are an emerging social media phenomenon in medicine, originating from critical care specialities and now expanding to other domains. Aided by the rapid increase in popularity of social media platforms and the advantage of accessibility, universality and portability, there has been a slow but significant expansion of podcast use in gynaecology. Current literature suggests that there is potential for digital communication to enhance dissemination of information, however there is conflicting evidence on its ability to increase users' knowledge...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: The objective was to assess the efficacy of intravesical hyaluronic acid (HA) and chondroitin sulfate (CS), alone or in combination, for recurrent urinary tract infections (RUTIs) in adult female patients using a systematic review and meta-analysis. METHODS: English-language articles were obtained from the MEDLINE, Embase, and Cochrane databases through November 2016, by manual searching and cross-referencing. Randomized and nonrandomized trials of adult female patients with a documented history of RUTIs who received HA, CS or HA plus CS were included...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: TVT-O production has been modified to laser cutting from mechanical cutting. We compared the behavior of laser and mechanically cut tension-free vaginal tape-obturator (TVT-O) using ultrasound at various time points after surgery. METHODS: This is a retrospective analysis of clinical and ultrasound data from two previously reported randomized controlled trials with TVT-O. Behavior of mechanically cut TVT-O implanted in January 2007 to November 2009 and laser-cut TVT-O implanted in May 2010 to May 2012 was assessed by ultrasound at day 1, the 2nd week, the 3rd month, and the 1st and 2nd years post-operatively...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: The purpose of the study was to evaluate the rate of postoperative voiding dysfunction after the insertion of an adjustable transobturator sling for the treatment of primary stress urinary incontinence (SUI). The secondary aim was to assess the objective and subjective cure rates and the impact of the surgery on quality of life. METHODS: This prospective study included 171 patients with primary SUI who underwent insertion of an adjustable transobturator tape...

Voiding dysfunction following midurethral sling procedures is not a rare event. There is no current consensus regarding management of this complication. Although it is often transient and self-limiting, chronic post-midurethral sling voiding dysfunction may lead to irreversible changes affecting detrusor function. Initial management includes intermittent catheterization, and addressing circumstantial factors interfering with normal voiding, such as pain. Early sling mobilization often resolves the dysfunction, and is associated with minimal morbidity...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: The goal of this study was to evaluate whether the addition of an iPad™ application to the informed consent process for pelvic organ prolapse (POP) surgery improves patient understanding and retention of information compared with standard verbal counseling (SVC) alone. METHODS: Patients scheduled for POP surgery were randomized to SVC alone or SVC augmented with an iPad™ application. Prior to counseling, immediately following counseling, and 6 weeks after surgery, patients completed a written quiz testing their understanding of POP and surgical repair (worst score 0; best score 20)...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: Our aim was to evaluate clinically relevant long-term outcomes of transvaginal mesh or native tissue repair in women with recurrent pelvic organ prolapse (POP). METHODS: We performed a 7-year follow-up of a randomized controlled trial on trocar-guided mesh placement or native tissue repair in women with recurrent POP. Primary outcome was composite success, defined as absence of POP beyond the hymen, absence of bulge symptoms, and absence of retreatment for POP...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: Our aim was to evaluate the safety, feasibility, and effectiveness of a vaginolaparoscopic sacrocolpopexy (VLS) technique for treating apical pelvic organ prolapse (POP). MATERIALS AND METHODS: This was a prospective interventional case series (design classification: Canadian Task Force II3) performed in the endoscopic unit of a tertiary care referral facility and university hospital. We assessed 15 symptomatic parous women with stage ≥2 apical POP according to the POP Quantification (POP-Q) classification...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: This formative qualitative follow-up study addresses validity concerns in the Dabat Incontinence and Prolapse (DABINCOP) study, which aimed to determine the prevalence of pelvic floor disorders in north-west Ethiopia. A pilot study using a questionnaire validated by pelvic exam showed severe underreporting of clinically relevant pelvic organ prolapse (POP). The objective of the follow-up study was to explore the reasons behind the underreporting and to gather information to strengthen the sensitivity and local relevance of the questionnaire to be employed in the main study...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: Vesicouterine fistula is a rare complication of cesarean section. The aim of this video is to present a case report and to provide a tutorial on the surgical technique of delayed transvaginal repair of a high vesicouterine fistula that developed after cesarean section with manual removal of a morbidly adherent placenta. METHODS: A 43-year-old woman was referred to our unit for continuous urinary leakage 3 months after undergoing a cesarean section with manual removal of a morbidly adherent placenta...
