Abdominal pelvic organ prolapse repair is efficacious for uterovaginal and apical prolapse. We describe the safety and efficacy of robotic prolapse repair in a large teaching institution. METHODS: Consecutive robotic-assisted prolapse repairs at a single institution between 2006 and 2014 were retrospectively reviewed for patient characteristics, operative information, and outcomes. RESULTS: A total of 196 women (mean age, 61 ± 9 years) underwent robotic prolapse repair (189 sacrocolpopexy, 6 sacrohysteropexy, 1 enterocele repair)...

BACKGROUND: Many urologists use urodynamic testing (UDS) to assist clinical decision-making. The VALUE study, a multi-institutional, randomized controlled trial published in 2012, demonstrated that UDS prior to midurethral sling placement for uncomplicated stress urinary incontinence (SUI) did not change management. We sought to determine whether use of UDS for evaluation of SUI diminished thereafter. METHODS: Records of patients who underwent isolated mid-urethral sling surgery at our tertiary-care referral center from 2008 to 2009 (pre-VALUE) and 2014 to 2016 (post-VALUE) were reviewed...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: There is considerable variation worldwide on how the assessment of voiding function is performed following midurethral sling (MUS) surgery. There is potentially a financial cost, and reduction in efficiency when patient discharge is delayed. Using our current practice of two normal void and residual (V&R) readings before discharge, the aim of this retrospective study was to evaluate the likelihood of an abnormal second V&R test if the first V&R test was normal in order to determine if a policy of discharge after only one satisfactory V&R test is reasonable...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: Following the US Food and Drug Administration's (FDA's) warning about the use of transvaginal mesh to treat pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and the use of single-incision slings to treat incontinence, the number of lawsuits for medical negligence regarding the use of any polypropylene mesh in the vagina has increased tremendously. METHODS: This same FDA document did not question the use of polypropylene midurethral slings and polypropylene for sacrocolpopexies...

AIMS: Women with pelvic organ prolapse without symptoms of urinary incontinence (UI) might demonstrate stress urinary incontinence (SUI) with or without prolapse reduction. We aimed to determine the value of demonstrable SUI during basic office evaluation or urodynamics in predicting SUI after vaginal prolapse repair in these women. METHODS: Women included in the CUPIDO trials without bothersome UI or UI more than once a week were eligible if they had undergone prolapse repair without incontinence surgery...

STUDY OBJECTIVE: Since publication of the Suppression of Ovarian Function Trial (SOFT) data, some women with premenopausal breast cancer have been recommended to undergo bilateral oophorectomy to facilitate breast cancer treatment with aromatase inhibitors. These women may be at higher risk of occult abdominal pathology than the general population. Our objective is to describe the procedures performed, intra-abdominal findings, and surgical pathology of this population. DESIGN: Multi-center retrospective chart review...

INTRODUCTION: Single-incision mini-slings (SIMS) represent the third generation of midurethral slings. They have been developed with the aim of offering a true ambulatory procedure for treatment of female stress urinary incontinence (SUI) with reduced morbidity and earlier recovery while maintaining similar efficacy to standard midurethral slings (SMUS). The aim of this study is to determine the clinical and cost-effectiveness of adjustable anchored SIMS compared with tension-free SMUS in the surgical management of female SUI, with 3-year follow-up...

REVIEW
John Chang, Dominic Lee
Stress urinary incontinence (SUI) has always been a major health issue for women. With the progression of technology and surgical techniques, mid urethral slings (MUS) used in both transvaginal and transobturator routes have become the gold standard in the treatment of SUI. There is ample short to mid-term data confirming the efficacy and safety in using MUS in treating SUI in women. However, long-term data supporting the use of MUS in women to treat SUI is scarce. There has been much controversy surrounding the US Food and Drug Administrations' (FDA) public notification of potential complications surrounding the use of transvaginal mesh, which has been magnified and generalised by the media; but despite this there has still been substantial growth and uptake of MUS for treating SUI...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: De novo overactive bladder (OAB) is a known complication of midurethral sling surgery for the treatment of stress urinary incontinence. To date, differences in the incidence of de novo OAB following the use of different types of midurethral sling remain relatively unknown. The purpose of the present systematic review was to evaluate this incidence and summarize current evidence. METHODS: We systematically searched the literature using the MEDLINE, Embase, Scopus, ClinicalTrials...

Advantages of secondary sling surgery for persistent or recurrent stress urinary incontinence include low complexity and short operation time, low blood loss, and short hospitalization. Rates of perioperative complications, erosion, and postoperative voiding difficulties are comparable with primary sling surgery. The presence of urethral (hyper)mobility after primary midurethral sling seems to be an important factor affecting success rates of repeat sling surgery.

BACKGROUND: Midurethral slings are commonly used to treat stress urinary incontinence. Pain control, however, may be a concern. Liposomal bupivacaine is a local anesthetic with slow release over 72 hours, demonstrated to lower pain scores and decrease narcotic use postoperatively. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to examine the impact of liposomal bupivacaine on pain scores and narcotic consumption following retropubic midurethral sling placement. STUDY DESIGN: This randomized, placebo-controlled trial enrolled women undergoing retropubic midurethral sling procedures with or without concomitant anterior or urethrocele repair...
