OBJECTIVE: To determine the effect of hormone therapy (HT) use on pelvic organ support. METHODS: A retrospective observational study involving postmenopausal women with pelvic floor dysfunction attending a tertiary urogynecology center between January 2012 and March 2015. All underwent a clinical examination including International Continence Society Pelvic Organ Prolapse Quantification and 4D translabial ultrasound imaging. Information on current or former use of systemic HT and current local estrogen use was collected...

Asymptomatic microscopic hematuria is an important clinical sign of urinary tract malignancy. Asymptomatic microscopic hematuria has been variably defined over the years. In addition, the evidence primarily is based on data from male patients. However, whether the patient is a man or a woman influences the differential diagnosis of asymptomatic microscopic hematuria, and the risk of urinary tract malignancy (bladder, ureter, and kidney) is significantly less in women than in men. Among women, being older than 60 years, having a history of smoking, and having gross hematuria are the strongest predictors of urologic cancer...

Enhanced recovery programs (ERP) represent a multimodal approach to perioperative patient care. The benefits of ERP are well demonstrated in colorectal surgery and Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS®) programs, that epitomise the ERP concept, have being introduced in different specialties, including vascular, gastric, pancreatic, urogynecologic and orthopaedic surgery. However, no ERP has been proposed for head and neck surgery. We developed an expert-opinion-based ERP for laryngeal surgery based on the key principles of colorectal surgery ERAS®...

Denise M Elser
Many women experience urogynecologic or pelvic floor disorders, especially urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse. The obstetrician/gynecologist is often the first health care professional to evaluate and treat these disorders. Treatments include pelvic floor muscle training, behavioral therapies, oral medications, neuromodulation, intradetrusor medications, and surgery. When approaching the woman with symptomatic prolapse, familiarity with pessaries and various surgical procedures aid in counseling...

AIMS: To compare outcomes of the retropubic versus the transobturator tension-free vaginal tape (TVT vs TVT-O) at 5 years. METHODS: A total of 569 women undergoing surgery for primary stress incontinence were randomized to receive a retropubic or a transobturator tensionfree vaginal tape (TVT or TVT-O). Follow-up at 5 years included clinical examination, urodynamic studies and quality of life. The primary outcome measure was continence defined as a negative cough stress test at a volume of 300 mL...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: The Pelvic Organ Quantification (POP-Q) system is a standardized technique used for staging POP. This study aimed to examine POP-Q use in peer-reviewed publications. METHODS: Nine journals representative of urogynecology were reviewed for articles describing POP staging from January to December 2012 and 2015. Review articles, editorials, letters and articles with or without retractions in manuscript form were excluded. The primary outcome was frequency of POP-Q use...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: Translabial ultrasound (TLUS) has shown good correlations between clinical examination and imaging findings in the supine position, and limits of normality have been described. This is not the case for imaging in the standing position. This study was designed to test the hypothesis that different cutoff values are required for imaging in the standing position. METHODS: This was a retrospective study carried out in a tertiary urogynecological unit in women presenting with symptoms of lower urinary tract and pelvic floor dysfunction between August 2013 and December 2015...

Overactive bladder affects a significant portion of the overall population and has substantial impact on daily activities and quality-of-life. When considering treatment, behavioral therapies should be instituted first, followed by medical therapies. Anticholinergic medications and beta-3 agonists are often used as initial pharmacologic therapy, but caution should be taken in prescribing anticholinergic medications in frail or cognitively impaired patients. Recently, concerns have developed regarding anticholinergic medications and the associated risk of cognitive impairment, dementia, and Alzheimer disease in the general population...

OBJECTIVE: The study aims to identify sources of and changes in referral patterns for pelvic floor disorders. METHODS: All new patient visits to urogynecology at our institution between January 2010 and December 2015 were identified. Patient demographics, referral source, insurance type, and visit diagnoses using ICD-9 codes were abstracted. ICD-9 codes were grouped into 18 urogynecologic diagnoses. Data were analyzed using SPSS (Version 20; Chicago, IL). RESULTS: Five thousand seven hundred ninety-nine new patient visits were included in the analysis...

BACKGROUND: Currently, there are no standard treatment guidelines for colpocleisis. Clinical practice varies widely for this safe and effective procedure. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to evaluate the current practice patterns in the United States among surgeons who perform colpocleisis. METHODS: A 27-item anonymous Web-based survey was sent to all practicing physicians affiliated with the American Urogynecologic Society. It consisted of questions regarding the demographic background of the physicians and their current practice as it relates to colpocleisis...

CONTEXT: Surgical nonautologous meshes have been used for several decades to repair abdominal wall herniae. Implantable materials have been adopted for the treatment of female and male stress urinary incontinence (SUI) and female pelvic organ prolapse (POP). OBJECTIVE: A consensus review of existing data based on published meta-analyses and reviews. EVIDENCE ACQUISITION: This document summarises the deliberations of a consensus group meeting convened by the European Association of Urology (EAU) and the European Urogynecological Association, to explore the current evidence relating to the use of polypropylene (PP) materials used for the treatment of SUI and POP, with reference to the 2016 EAU guidelines (European Association of Urology 2016), the European Commission's SCENIHR report on the use of surgical meshes (SCENIHR 2015), other available high-quality evidence, guidelines, and national recommendations...

PURPOSE: Pelvic organ prolapse (POP) can cause incomplete bladder emptying or hydronephrosis and renal failure. These are serious conditions, especially in elderly women, requiring resolution of POP. Pessary use is an alternative, but there are specific problems or patients may not want it. We therefore conducted a retrospective study on surgical treatment of elderly women with respect to the type of surgery and intra- and postoperative complications. METHODS: From two urogynecologic centers, we reviewed treatment data between 2003 and 2013, including patients ≥80 years of age...

Positron emission tomograph (PET)-magnetic resonance (MR) is a new modality combining PET and MR. In gynecologic cancers it can be used for staging of cervical and endometrial cancer, planning of radiation therapy in cervical cancer, assessing response to chemotherapy in ovarian cancer, and detection of recurrence in most gynecologic cancers. It is being explored for prostate cancer and other genitourinary cancers, but is still in experimental stages.

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: The aim of this study was to transculturally adapt the Pelvic Organ Prolapse/Incontinence Sexual Questionnaire IUGA-Revised (PISQ-IR) into Spanish and to validate the new version. METHODS: We carried out a two-stage observational cross-sectional study: translation and back-translation, followed by a validation stage in which the final version was administered to 268 consecutive women (118 not sexually active [NSA] and 150 sexually active [SA]) older than 18 from an Urogynecology Unit...

OBJECTIVES: The primary objective was to evaluate the ability of different anatomic cut-off points, as established in specialist urogynecology populations, to identify clinically relevant prolapse in a population of postmenopausal women with pelvic floor symptoms recruited from primary care. STUDY DESIGN: Cross-sectional study among 890 women (≥55 years) screened for pelvic floor symptoms. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: The Pelvic Floor Distress Inventory 20 was used to measure symptoms, and the Pelvic Organ Prolapse Quantification (POP-Q) system was used to assess prolapse...
