Background: Diastasis recti abdominis (DrA) is associated with negative body image, musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction, and perhaps urogynecological complaints. The severity of DrA has traditionally been determined by measuring the inter-rectus distance (IRD); however, the relationship between IRD and symptoms in women with DrA is unclear. Objective: The objective of the study was to investigate the relationship between IRD and symptom severity in women with DrA in the early postpartum period...

PURPOSE: To create a predictive model of involuntary detrusor contraction (IDC) to improve the diagnostic accuracy of overactive detrusor (OAD), associating overactive bladder (OAB) symptoms with other clinical parameters in the female population. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 727 women were studied retrospectively. In all of them, urodynamic study was conducted for urogynecological causes. Demographics information, personal history, symptoms, physical exam, a 3-day frequency/volume chart and urinary culture, were collected in all patients and they subsequently underwent uroflowmetry and urodynamic studies...

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the relation between voided volume and void trial "success" to create an algorithm that minimizes the need for postvoid residual volume (PVR) assessment in backfill-assisted void trials. METHODS: This article is an ancillary analysis of deidentified data from a randomized trial evaluating prophylactic antibiotics after urogynecologic surgery. Void trials were routinely performed after surgery; voided volumes, PVR, and void trial outcomes were collected...

OBJECTIVES: Guidelines for use of prophylactic antibiotics in gynecologic procedures are outlined by the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. There remains, however, a high rate of unindicated administration of antibiotics for surgeries. A retrospective study performed at our institution in 2012-2013 demonstrated that unindicated prophylactic antibiotics were administered over half the time. This study aimed to examine variations in the use of prophylactic antibiotics in patients undergoing gynecologic surgery at Scott and White Memorial Hospital and determine whether an educational intervention to gynecology physicians was associated with a significant decrease in unindicated prophylactic antibiotics...

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...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the correlation of a history of lower urinary tract symptomatology during childhood to lower urinary tract dysfunction in young adult women. SUBJECTS/PATIENTS AND METHODS: This was a multicenter, prospective, case-control study conducted from April 2013 to November 2015. The trial was registered in ClinicalTrials. gov (NCT02185287). Three-hundred women, 18 to 40 years old, participated. Cases were women attending urogynecology clinics for various lower urinary tract complaints and controls were recruited from a healthy population...

OBJECTIVES: Sexual dysfunction occurs commonly in individuals with end-stage renal disease. Chronic renal failure as well as the treatments used for it generally has a negative impact on sexual function with a subsequent increase in the risk of depression. There is scarcity of published data on female sexual dysfunction and the degree of improvement in patients on hemodialysis (HD) and transplant (Tx) recipients. The aim of this study was to compare the sexual function and degree of depression in HD and Tx patients with control group...

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...

AIMS: The Patient Global Index of Severity (PGI-S) and the Patient Global Index of Improvement (PGI-I) are global impression questionnaires developed in English and validated in women with stress urinary incontinence (SUI). This validation study tested the psychometric properties of German-language versions of the two questionnaires in German-speaking women with SUI. METHODS: The German-language PGI-S and PGI-I were psychometrically tested and validated using the SF-12 questionnaire, the Kinǵs Health Questionnaire (KHQ), clinical parameters, incontinence episode frequency and pad use in 311 patients before and 3 months after receiving a TVT-O or TVT tape for SUI...

OBJECTIVE: We sought to describe the readability of Web sites arising from the most common Google search terms related to pelvic organ prolapse, bladder control, and bowel control. METHODS: Google was queried to capture the top 100 search results for the keywords in each disease group. For the top 20 results of each keyword, we analyzed the text for readability using 4 readability formulas: Dale-Chall, Gunning-Fog, Simple Measure of Gobbledygook (SMOG), and Flesch-Kincaid Grade Level...

Pelvic organ prolapse (POP) is a common, benign condition in women. For many women it can cause vaginal bulge and pressure, voiding dysfunction, defecatory dysfunction, and sexual dysfunction, which may adversely affect qual-ity of life. Women in the United States have a 13% lifetime risk of undergoing surgery for POP (1). Although POP can occur in younger women, the peak incidence of POP symptoms is in women aged 70-79 years (2). Given the aging population in the United States, it is anticipated that by 2050 the number of women experiencing POP will increase by approximately 50% (3)...

AIMS: We report the success rate and complications rate of combined ultralateral anterior Colporrhaphy plus Tension-free Vaginal Tape (TVT-O) in a long-term (10 year) follow-up prospective survey. METHODS: Patients previously treated for associated stress urinary incontinence (SUI) and cystocele were subjected to annual follow-up for 10 year with a complete urogynecologic evaluation. Furthermore, an urodynamic assessment and a quality of life questionnaire (ICIQ-UI SF) were recorded at the 5th and 10th year of follow up...

OBJECTIVES: Investigators sought to assess whether age was related to patient understanding of pelvic floor disorders; given studies show that increased age is associated with lower health literacy. METHODS: This was a cross-sectional survey of new urogynecology patients. Enrolled participants completed a survey including demographics, history of urinary incontinence (UI) and pelvic organ prolapse symptoms and treatment, the Prolapse and Incontinence Knowledge Questionnaire (PIKQ), self-assessment of UI and prolapse knowledge, and a pelvic anatomy diagram to label...

CONTEXT: The aetiology and pathogenesis polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) remain uncertain and thus the relative studies are still crucial. OBJECTIVE: Our aim was to analyse the fatty acids profiles of the main phospholipids species in serum from women with PCOS classified into phenotypes, and to diagnose women more susceptible to the occurrence of inflammatory state. DESIGN: PCOS screening tests were performed in The Clinic of Gynecology and Urogynecology of Pomeranian Medical University in the 2014-2015 years...
