There is a growing interest in combined pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and rectal prolapse (RP) surgery for concomitant pelvic floor prolapse despite a paucity of data regarding complications and clinical outcomes of combined repair.
Pelvic Organ Prolapse
Patients with pelvic organ prolapse (POP) often have accompanying lower urinary tract symptoms. Symptoms such as stress urinary incontinence(SUI-UD) and detrusor overactivty(DO) would co-exist in a number of patients.
Pelvic organ prolapse (POP) surgery may unmask occult stress urinary incontinence (OSUI) in otherwise asymptomatic patients. Preoperative urodynamic studies (UDSs) with prolapse reduction may, by potentially unmasking OSUI, assist surgical decision making.
Our aim was to investigate the efficacy of the EndoFast Reliant™ system, which is a novel trocarless mesh technology for the treatment of pelvic organ prolapse (POP).
This was a retrospective cohort study including 31 female patients with POP who underwent vaginal repair.
Women with pelvic organ prolapse (POP) are at risk of developing stress urinary incontinence (SUI) following prolapse surgery. Combining POP repair with anti-incontinence surgery reduces the incontinence rate but leads to overtreatment.
We retrospectively reviewed the postoperative outcomes of patients who underwent tension-free vaginal mesh (TVM) surgery in our institution.
In total, 195 TVM surgeries were performed at the Shimane University School of Medicine from January 2010 to May 2016 in patients with Pelvic Organ Prolapse-Quantification (POP-Q) stage II or higher.
Preoperative urodynamic studies (UDS) are frequently performed before pelvic organ prolapse (POP) surgery to assess urethral and bladder function. The primary goal of this study is to examine how preoperative UDS are utilized and what value these studies have in patient treatment and/or counseling.
Pelvic organ prolapse is a common complaint among older women. Vaginal pessary insertion is an appropriate treatment as a non-surgical method with few complications. This paper is a prospective observational study of 68 patients with pelvic organ prolapse that was carried out at the Imam Khomeini Hospital's Pelvic Floor clinic.
Pelvic organ prolapses (POP) and overactive bladder (OAB) may coexist and both negatively impact quality of life in women. The correlation between POP and OAB remains unclear, but these patients may have the OAB resolution after the surgical treatment of POP.
Introduction Laparoscopic lateral suspension with mesh (LLSM) is an effective and less invasive technique for the correction of pelvic organ prolapse. We discuss the primary objectives, subjective success rate and pelvic floor ultrasound outcomes of uterus-preserving LLSM operations.
