OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to evaluate dynamic two-dimensional (2D) and 3D transperineal pelvic ultrasound findings with urodynamic studies in women with lower urinary tract symptoms after midurethral sling placement. METHODS: On 2D images, the sling position, and on 3D imaging the sling angle, urethral diameter, urethral height, and urethral cross sectional area were recorded with and without Valsalva. Patients were categorized into 3 groups based on 2D imaging: group 1-at rest, the sling lies parallel to the urethral lumen, and during Valsalva, the sling becomes C shaped; group 2-both at rest and during Valsalva, the sling runs parallel to the urethral lumen; group 3-at rest, the sling is C shaped, and during Valsalva, this curved shape is maintained...

A midurethral sling is a common procedure for stress urinary incontinence in women. Tensioning of the tape used for the sling is an art, and overtensioning during surgery can lead to obstructive symptoms. A patient with new onset of lower urinary tract symptoms after sling surgery should be evaluated for possible voiding dysfunction. Sling incision does not always correct the obstruction and excision may be needed.

The role of ultrasound imaging in urogynecology is not clearly defined. Despite significant developments in visualization techniques and interpretation of images, pelvic ultrasound is still more a tool for research than for clinical practice. Structures of the lower genitourinary tract and pelvic floor can be visualized from different approaches: transperineal, introital, transvaginal, abdominal or endoanal. According to contemporary guidelines and recommendations, the role of ultrasound in urogynecology is limited to the measurement of post-void residue...

INTRODUCTION: Proximal urethrovaginal fistula (UVF) located close to the bladder neck may cause extensive sphincter damage and is usually associated with continuous incontinence, which may mask the associated stress urinary incontinence (SUI). Simultaneous correction of SUI avoids a second surgery for SUI, which needs dissection in ischemic fields and carries a high risk of failure. The aim of this study is to describe our technique of concomitant repair of SUI with proximal UVF and our results...
