AUA 2016: Role of uterine preserving surgery in mesh based pelvic organ prolapse repair. - Session Highlights

San Diego, CA USA ( James Forde presented data on mesh prolapse repair in 10,339 women between 2008-2013 from a statewide research database in New York.

The authors reported that patients who had a concomitant hysterectomy at the time of prolapse repair had longer length of stay, more medical complications, more bleeding, but less bladder injuries and hospital readmissions within 90 days. There was no difference in reintervention rates, although mean follow up was only 48.3 weeks.
