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...

OBJECTIVE: To produce a Czech version of a validated tool for sexual quality of life assessment among women with pelvic floor disorders; PISQ-IR (Pelvic organ prolapse/Incontinence Sexual Questionnaire - Internationally Revised). DESIGN: Original study. SETTING: Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, University Hospital and Faculty of Medicine, Charles University in Pilsen. METHODS: The whole process of translation and linguistic validation of the questionnaire followed the protocol of the International Urogynecology Association developed for this purpose...

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...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: Primary care physicians can impact womens' access to care. We assessed primary care providers' experience and management regarding pelvic floor disorders. METHODS: This Institutional Review Board approved study invited internal and family Medicine Program Directors to complete and distribute to faculty an online survey designed to query demographics, perceptions, management, and referral patterns regarding urinary incontinence (UI), overactive bladder (OAB), and pelvic organ prolapse (POP) in females...

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...

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®...

REVIEW
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...
