Pelvic Organ Prolapse

Revisiting current treatment options for stress urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse: a contemporary literature review.

Stress urinary incontinence (SUI) and pelvic organ prolapse (POP) affect many women in their lifetime. In this review, we describe and evaluate the latest treatment options for SUI and POP, including the controversy around transvaginal mesh (TVM) use.

Clinical efficacy of pelvic autologous tissue reconstruction in treating pelvic organ prolapse in 36 patients.

This study aims to search for a new, economic, convenient, and low recurrence rate operation for the surgical management of pelvic organ prolapse (POP). The clinical value of the operation for treating POP was determined through retrospective case series.

Sexual function after robot-assisted prolapse surgery: a prospective study.

Female pelvic organ prolapse (POP) can severely influence sexual function. Robot-assisted surgery is increasingly used to treat POP, but studies describing its effect on sexual function are limited.

Non-absorbable and partially-absorbable mesh during pelvic organ prolapse repair: A comparison of clinical outcomes

The aim of this study was to compare the clinical outcomes of non-absorbable and partially-absorbable mesh intervention in pelvic organ prolapse.

This was a retrospective cohort study of patients who underwent transvaginal mesh operation for anterior and apical vaginal prolapse at a single tertiary center from January 2007 to December 2013.

Outcomes of laparoscopic management of multicompartmental pelvic organ prolapse

Pelvic organ prolapse (POP) is an increasing medical problem with complex diagnostics and controversial surgical management. It causes a series of dysfunctions in the gynecological, urinary, and anorectal organs.

Laparoscopic bilateral cervicosacropexy (laCESA) and vaginosacropexy (laVASA) - new surgical treatment option in women with pelvic organ prolapse and urinary incontinence

Objective Sacrocolpopexy is the gold-standard for apical prolapse treatment. However, the technical performance of each SCP is strongly dependant on the surgeon´s own discretion and comparison of clinical outcomes with respect to urinary incontinence (UI) is difficult.

The role of ADAMTS-2, collagen type-1, TIMP-3 and papilin levels of uterosacral and cardinal ligaments in the etiopathogenesis of pelvic organ prolapse among women without stress urinary incontinence

To investigate the potential role of 'a disintegrin-like and metalloproteinase with thrombospondin type motifs-2 (ADAMTS-2), collagen type-1, tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinases-3 (TIMP-3) and papilin' levels in the uterosacral ligament (USL) and cardinal ligament (CL) of the uterus on the etiopathogenesis of pelvic organ prolapse (POP) among postmenopausal women without stress urinary incontinence (SUI).

Treatment of Anterior Vaginal Wall Prolapse Using Transvaginal Anterior Mesh With Apical Fixation: A Prospective Multicenter Study With up to 2 Years of Follow-up

To evaluate the safety and efficacy of a surgical polypropylene mesh for correction of anterior vaginal prolapse, with or without apical defects, by providing simultaneous reinforcement at the anterior and apical aspects of the vagina with a single-incision approach.

Urodynamics are necessary for patients with asymptomatic pelvic organ prolapse

To evaluate the role of pre-operative urodynamics in women with pelvic organ prolapse, who are asymptomatic for urinary symptoms. Correlate urodynamics findings with King's Health Questionnaire (KHQ) responses.

Perioperative interventions in pelvic organ prolapse surgery

Pelvic organ prolapse (POP) affects as many as 50% of parous women, with 14% to 19% of women undergoing a surgical correction. Although surgery for the treatment of POP is common, limited supportive data can be found in the literature regarding the preoperative and postoperative interventions related to these procedures.
