PURPOSE: The primary objective of this study was to evaluate reasons for seeking care among men and women with lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS). METHODS: Participants were recruited from urology and urogynecology clinics, and the community. The sample was enriched with persons expected to have abnormal or diminished bladder sensations (e.g., participants with lower back surgery, participants aged 65+). In-person interviews were conducted, beginning with an open-ended assessment of urinary symptoms and associated bother, followed by more directed questions, including reasons for seeking or not seeking treatment...

OBJECTIVE: To compare the effectiveness of anterior pelvic organ prolapse (POP) repair using Prolift (Ethicon, Somerville, NJ, USA) or Elevate (American Medical Systems, Minnetonka, MN, USA) vaginal mesh at 12 months of follow-up. METHODS: A retrospective study was undertaken using the records for the first 50 Prolift procedures in 2007-2009 and the first 50 Elevate procedures in 2013-2015 performed at a tertiary urogynecology unit in Lisbon, Portugal. Postoperative follow-up occurred at 3, 6, and 12 months...

AIM: We aimed to clarify the impact of night-time dosing with tolterodine extended release (ER) on nocturia. METHODS: The bladder diaries, urodynamic studies, and medical records of female patients with overactive bladder syndrome who were diagnosed between January 2005 and December 2015, and treated with tolterodine ER 4 mg once per day (night-time or daytime dosing) for 12 weeks in the urogynecology outpatient clinics of two tertiary referral centers were reviewed retrospectively...

BACKGROUND: Almost 400,000 female pelvic reconstructive operations were performed in 2010 for urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse in the United States, and it is likely that this will continue to increase each year. There is a lack of population-based data evaluating the risk of blood transfusion after urogynecologic procedures. OBJECTIVES: To assess the incidence of blood transfusion related to pelvic reconstructive surgery in a large national surgical quality database and to identify transfusion-associated risk factors...

OBJECTIVES: We describe the rationale, design, and methods and 6-year experience with a real-world surgical registry for female pelvic reconstructive and incontinence procedures and postoperative outcomes. METHODS: The primary goal of creating this registry was to establish the feasibility of prospective data capture for all urogynecologic procedures. Data captured included baseline demographics, surgical procedures, perioperative complications, and subjective and objective findings up to 36 months after surgery...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to establish whether the learning curve for laparoscopic sacral colpopexy (LSC) could be significantly reduced in a structured learning program. METHODS: We conducted a prospective study aimed at mapping the learning curve of LSC in the setting of a structured learning program for a urogynecology fellow at the Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital.The fellow was laparoscopic suturing and dissection naive at the commencement of her fellow position and was required to assist in 20 LSCs, video-edit 2 procedures, and undertake laparoscopic suturing and knot tying training on a laparoscopic trainer for 2 h/wk during the trial period...

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...

REVIEW
Brock Hengel, Blayne Welk, Richard J Baverstock
In recent years, midurethral slings (MUS) and transvaginal mesh procedures have experienced blazing growth and popularity. However, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Health Canada regulatory advisories threw water on that fire and created a confusing environment surrounding their continued usage. MUS usage has continued in Canada and transvaginal mesh kits for pelvic organ prolapse have become a rarity. Several large organizations (the Society of Urodynamics, Female Pelvic Medicine and Urogenital Reconstruction [SUFU], the American Urogynecologic Society [AUGS], and the Canadian Urological Association [CUA]) have developed "mesh statements" to clarify the issues surrounding mesh for patients and medical professionals; however, often the legal system sees things differently in either individual cases or class action lawsuits...

OBJECTIVE: To estimate the effect of lidocaine-prilocaine cream on patient pain at the time of office pessary removal and reinsertion. METHODS: In this double-blind, randomized placebo-controlled trial, participants undergoing routine pessary care in a urogynecology office at a tertiary referral center were randomized to application of 4 g of either lidocaine-prilocaine or placebo cream 5 minutes before pessary change. Visual analog scale pain scores were collected from the patient at baseline, after pessary removal, and after pessary reinsertion...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: The Prolapse/Incontinence Sexual Questionnaire-International Urogynecology Association (IUGA) Revised (PISQ-IR) measures sexual function in women with pelvic floor disorders (PFDs) yet is unwieldy, with six individual subscale scores for sexually active women and four for women who are not. We hypothesized that a valid and responsive summary score could be created for the PISQ-IR. METHODS: Item response data from participating women who completed a revised version of the PISQ-IR at three clinical sites were used to generate item weights using a magnitude estimation (ME) and Q-sort (Q) approaches...

COMPARATIVE STUDY

OBJECTIVES: To determine whether mixed-flora preoperative urine cultures, as compared with no-growth preoperative urine cultures, are associated with a higher prevalence of postoperative urinary tract infections (UTIs). METHODS: This was a retrospective cohort study. Women who underwent urogynecologic surgery were included if their preoperative clean-catch urine culture result was mixed flora or no growth. Women were excluded if they received postoperative antibiotics for reasons other than treatment of a UTI...

BACKGROUND: Coital incontinence is an under-reported disorder among women with urinary incontinence. Women seldom voluntarily report this condition, and as such, related data remains limited and is at times conflicting. AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: To investigate the incidence and quality of life in women with coital incontinence and to determine associated predictors. METHODS: This observational study involved 505 sexually active women attending the urogynecologic clinic for symptomatic urinary incontinence at a tertiary medical center...
