INTRODUCTION: The surgical comorbidity assessment is important for patient risk stratification, counseling, and research. In adults, risk assessment indices, such as the Charlson Co-morbidity Score (CCS) or Van Walraven Index (VWI), are well established. In pediatrics, however, risk assessment indices are scarce. Recently, a pediatric-specific risk assessment index, the Rhee index, was developed to discriminate mortality for pediatric general surgery patients. Currently, there is no validated risk assessment tool in pediatric urology...

OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to describe the expected duration of self-catheterization in women discharged home performing intermittent self-catheterization (ISC) after retropubic midurethral sling (RMUS). METHODS: We conducted a retrospective cohort analysis of women who underwent an isolated RMUS by 3 providers between 2009 and 2014 at a single institution. A 300 mL retrograde-fill voiding trial (VT) was performed before discharge. Those who failed their VT (postvoid residual [PVR] >1/3 total bladder volume [TBV]) and could perform ISC are included in this analysis...

BACKGROUND: Stress urinary incontinence (SUI) is a frequent adverse effect for men undergoing prostate surgery. A large proportion (around 8% after radical prostatectomy and 2% after transurethral resection of prostate (TURP)) are left with severe disabling incontinence which adversely effects their quality of life and many are reliant on containment measures such as pads (27% and 6% respectively). Surgery is currently the only option for active management of the problem. The overwhelming majority of surgeries for persistent bothersome SUI involve artificial urinary sphincter (AUS) insertion...

OBJECTIVE: To assess whether there is any association between the implantation of synthetic polypropylene mesh slings for the treatment of stress urinary incontinence (SUI) and risk of cancer. METHODS: We performed a nationwide cohort study based on the general female population in Sweden. All women entered the observational period as unexposed on January 1, 1997, and contributed person-time as unexposed unless they underwent a midurethral sling procedure for SUI, after which they contributed person-time as exposed until first occurrence of any cancer, death, emigration, or end of the observational period (December 31, 2009)...

INTRODUCTION: Sphincter insufficiency is mostly associated with neurogenic and some structural abnormalities in the pediatric population. As a mini-invasive treatment, urethral bulking agents have been used to treat this problem. OBJECTIVE: The aim was to evaluate if technical success, defined as intraoperative increase in abdominal leak point pressure (ALPP), predicts the outcome of the treatment of sphincter insufficiency with urethral bulking agent. STUDY DESIGN: We reviewed all children treated first time with dextranomer/hyaluronic acid (Dx/HA) copolymer (Deflux) for urethral sphincter insufficiency and who intraoperatively had ALPPs measured during 2004-2014...

AIMS: Stress urinary incontinence (SUI) is a common problem worldwide. Mainstream surgical procedures include tension-free vaginal tape (TVT), transobturator tape (TOT), tension-free vaginal tape-obturator (TVT-O), tension-free vaginal tape SECUR (TVT-S), and adjustable single-incision sling (Ajust). The aim of this study was to compare the efficacy and safety of these surgical procedures and assess which surgery is most optimal for SUI by adopting a network meta-analysis (NMA). METHODS: Electronic databases including PubMed, Cochrance Library, and Embase database were researched systematically, until March 21, 2017...

PURPOSE: To study correlations between sonographic and urodynamic findings after suburethral sling surgery. METHODS: This is a retrospective study on 141 women who had multichannel urodynamic testing and translabial 4D ultrasound after suburethral sling surgery between 2006 and 2016. The sling-pubis gap, i.e., the distance between sling and infero-posterior margin of the pubic symphysis on Valsalva, and urethral motion profile were determined. The urethral motion profile was assessed by calculating the mobility vectors of 6 equidistant points along the length of urethra from bladder neck to external urethral meatus, against the dorsocaudal margin of the symphysis pubis on Valsalva...

OBJECTIVE: The objective of the study was to evaluate the utility of urodynamic studies performed before primary midurethral sling placement for stress urinary incontinence in predicting the need for subsequent sling release for voiding dysfunction. METHODS: The health records of women managed with primary synthetic midurethral sling placement at Mayo Clinic (Rochester, MN) from January 1, 2002, to December 31, 2012, were reviewed. The primary outcome was surgical sling release for postoperative voiding dysfunction (ie, prolonged retention, elevated postvoid residual volumes with new voiding symptoms, or de novo onset or worsening of overactive bladder symptoms)...

Postprostatectomy urinary incontinence has a significant impact on the quality of life of patients who undergo radical prostatectomy. Stress and overflow incontinence may result from the procedure, with sphincteric incompetence and detrusor hypocontractility implicating their development, respectively. In many cases, treatment begins with conservative approaches, including pelvic floor muscle training or biofeedback. Pharmacotherapy can be used to treat overactive bladder. For stress incontinence, transurethral bulking agents are utilized in select patients; however, artificial urinary sphincter and male slings are the most efficacious options with good success rates...
