Based on the available urogynecological literature, the role of hysterectomy in the surgical strategy of pelvic organ prolapse (POP) repair remains controversial. Currently, there are no data to favor either the removal or preservation of the uterus in women with POP. The findings that hysterectomy may contribute to a higher success rate and to the development of urinary incontinence and/or female sexual dysfunction are not supported by evidence. It is not clear why both hysteropexy was sometimes performed in the presence of overt uterine prolapse and/or concomitant vaginal hysterectomy was often included in vaginal prolapse repair in the absence of uterine prolapse...

AIMS: To evaluate subjective and objective outcome after repeat surgery for stress urinary incontinence (SUI). METHODS: Patients who underwent a midurethral tape after failed Burch colposuspension or failed midurethal tape between 1999 and 2014 were invited for follow-up. Urogynecological examination and urodynamics was performed, and objective cure was defined as a negative cough stress test; subjective cure was defined as negotiation of SUI symptoms. Quality-of-life (QoL), sexual health, and subjective success was assessed with the King's Health Questionnaire, Incontinence Outcome Questionnaire, Female Sexual Function Index, and the Patient Global Impression of Improvement (PGI-I) score...

INTRODUCTION: Pelvic floor ultrasound plays a major role in urogynecologic diagnostics. Using 3D ultrasound we can identify integrity of levator ani and measure hiatal area in the axial plane. The main goal of our study was to measure hiatal area on Valsalva in a cohort of urogynecological patients. Furthermore, we aimed to correlate hiatal area with urogynecological symptoms, levator integrity and evaluate cut-off values for pelvic organ prolapse. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In a retrospective analysis, we included 246 patients seen for urogynecological problems in our tertiary urogynecological unit...
