AIMS: Pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence affect 40-50% of postmenopausal women worldwide. Polypropylene meshes have been extensively used for the surgical intervention of these disorders; however, these meshes can lead to severe complications in some patients. The need for synthetic materials more suited for use in pelvic floor repair is widely accepted. This study aims to develop an electrospun 17-β-estradiol releasing polyurethane (PU) scaffold that not only provides the appropriate mechanical support but can also stimulate new extracellular matrix (ECM) production and angiogenesis...

INTRODUCTION: Urinary incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, and fecal incontinence are pelvic floor disorders (PFDs) disproportionately experienced by postmenopausal women. Limited data exist suggesting that phytoestrogens may have an impact on the pathophysiology and symptom of PFDs. PURPOSE OF REVIEW: The aim of the study was to review the current literature addressing the role of phytoestrogens on PFDs, including the pathophysiology, symptom, treatment, and possible prevention...

OBJECTIVE: To retrospectively compare surgical success and complications between vaginal vault prolapse compared with uterovaginal prolapse in women who underwent apical prolapse repair for stage II-IV prolapse. METHODS: Women in one of three Pelvic Floor Disorders Network prolapse surgical trials were included. Absence of bothersome bulge symptoms, no prolapse beyond the hymen, and no subsequent prolapse treatment defined success and was our primary outcome. Secondary outcomes included comparison of quality-of-life measures, anatomic changes, and adverse events...

BACKGROUND: Pessaries are a treatment option for pelvic organ prolapse, stress urinary incontinence (SUI), and cervical incompetence. An effective pessary is comfortable, corrects the presenting problem, does not cause adverse effects, and is easy to remove. Discomfort and poor fit limit the usefulness of pessaries for many women. Each patient presents with unique anatomy and thus the effectiveness of commercially available pessaries may be limited by lack of customization. METHOD: A patient presenting with SUI and failed commercial pessary fittings desired nonsurgical treatment...

A 44-year-old woman underwent endoscopic incision of a right simple ureterocele with hydronephrosis discovered during gynecological assessment for stress urinary incontinence with Stage I cystocele. At the postoperative visits, she has reported a persistent flap of mucosa coming out from her urethra protruding in the vagina despite manual reduction. An endoscopic resection of the mucosa flap was programmed. After 24 months, she was asymptomatic with no history of renal colic or urinary tract infection. In patients with a history of pelvic organ prolapse, the resection of the ureterocele in the first instance may be the optimal choice...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: There is a need for expanded access to safe surgical care in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) as illustrated by the report of the 2015 Lancet Commission on Global Surgery. Packages of closely-related surgical procedures may create platforms of capacity that maximize impact in LMIC. Pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and genital fistula care provide an example. Although POP affects many more women in LMICs than fistula, donor support for fistula treatment in LMICs has been underway for decades, whereas treatment for POP is usually limited to hysterectomy-based surgical treatment, occurring with little to no donor support...

Female pelvic organ prolapse is a widely prevalent condition and is associated with variable morbidity. It encompasses a number of clinical conditions, including subvesical obstruction, overactive bladder symptoms, sexual dysfunction and urinary und fecal incontinence. The prevalence of pelvic insufficiency is estimated to be between 30 and 50 %. As life expectancy is increasing and the elderly population is growing, there will be an increased incidence of the condition and growing demand for pelvic floor treatment in the future...

RELEVANCE: Collagen type I and III have a significant role in the development of pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and urinary incontinence in women. The role of the COL3A1 gene polymorphism remains debatable. Some studies and meta-analyzes have found a direct correlation between genetic defects and POP, while other researchers have not confirmed this association. This study aimed to investigate the association of the 1800255 COL3A1 gene polymorphism with the development of POP and urinary incontinence in women...

Pelvic floor damage can occur during pregnancy, during childbirth or post-partum, and may be expressed by symptoms such as urinary incontinence, fecal and gas incontinence, sexual dysfunction, pelvic organ prolapse and chronic pelvic pain. Some of the symptoms, which manifest later in a woman's life, will go unrecognized in the immediate postpartum period. Most women do not mention their general health, unless specifically asked. Physiotherapists, who are adept with the anatomy of the musculoskeletal system and the ability to diagnose unique differences, can aid in the diagnosis and treatment of postpartum pelvic floor problems...

Pelvic floor dysfunction (PFD) is a common condition that typically affects women older than 50 years and decreases the quality of life. Weakening of support structures can involve all three pelvic compartments and cause a combination of symptoms, including constipation, urinary and fecal incontinence, obstructed defecation, pelvic pain, perineal bulging, and sexual dysfunction. The causes of PFD are complex and multifactorial; however, vaginal delivery is considered a major predisposing factor. Physical examination alone is limited in the evaluation of PFD; it frequently leads to an underestimation of the involved compartments...
