Pelvic Prolapse

A qualitative study of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on women seeking pelvic organ prolapse surgery in Alberta, Canada.

In addition to altering public infrastructure and social patterning, the COVID-19 pandemic has delayed many pelvic organ prolapse (POP) surgeries. POP-related stigma, symptomology and the experience of waiting for POP surgery can negatively impact women's quality of life and mental health.

Natural history of lower urinary tract symptoms in treatment-seeking women with pelvic organ prolapse; the Symptoms of Lower Urinary Tract Dysfunction Research Network (LURN).

The association of pelvic organ prolapse with overactive bladder, other lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS), and the natural history of those symptoms is not well characterized. Previous cross-sectional studies demonstrated conflicting relationships between prolapse and LUTS.

Predictors of persistent overactive bladder following surgery for advanced pelvic organ prolapse.

Reliable risk factors for persistent urgency following pelvic organ prolapse (POP) surgery are still unclear. We aimed to identify preoperative parameters related to persistent postoperative urgency in a cohort of women following surgery for POP stage 3-4 with concomitant overactive bladder (OAB).

Comparison of transvaginal mesh surgery and robot-assisted sacrocolpopexy for pelvic organ prolapse.

Pelvic organ prolapse (POP) is greatly affecting the quality of life (QOL) of women. There are some surgical techniques for POP repair, for example, transvaginal mesh surgery (TVM), laparoscopic sacrocolpopexy (LSC), and robot-assisted sacrocolpopexy (RSC).

Development and initial validation of a pictorial survey to assess for symptomatic pelvic organ prolapse and urinary incontinence in western Kenya.

Visual tools are a valuable tool for ascertaining patient symptoms, especially in populations with low literacy rates. The objective was to develop and validate a pictorial scale for assessing symptomatic pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and urinary incontinence among women in western Kenya.

Clinical and urodynamic findings before and after surgical repair of pelvic organ prolapse in women with lower urinary tract symptoms. A prospective observational study.

To investigate the association between urodynamic findings and lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) before and after surgical treatment of POP.

Seventy-four patients with stage II or more anterior POP associated with LUTS and eligible for surgical repair of POP were included in this prospective study.

Tension-free vaginal mesh for patients with pelvic organ prolapse: mid-term functional outcomes.

We aimed to evaluate the mid-term efficacy of tension-free vaginal mesh (TVM) for pelvic organ prolapse (POP), and observe the time course of lower urinary tract symptoms and sexual function.

In this retrospective study, we included 112 female patients who underwent TVM at a single center for stage 2 or higher POP, and replied to questionnaires before, and 2 and 4 years after TVM.

Barriers and Promotors to Health Service Utilization for Pelvic Floor Disorders in the United States: Systematic Review and Meta-analysis of Qualitative and Quantitative Studies.

We need a systematic approach to understanding health service utilization behavior in women with pelvic floor symptoms in the United States.

The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of pelvic floor care utilization and identify its barriers and promotors using Andersen's model, which theorizes care-seeking behavior with individual care needs, resources, predispositions, and macrostructures.

Italian validation of the short form of the Pelvic Organ Prolapse/Urinary Incontinence Sexual Questionnaire (PISQ-12).

The aim of this study was to translate the English short form of Pelvic Organ Prolapse/Urinary Incontinence Sexual Questionnaire (PISQ-12) and evaluate its validity, internal consistency, and test-retest reliability.

Trends in Performance of Anti-Incontinence Treatment at the Time of Pelvic Organ Prolapse Repair From 2011 to 2019.

There are no publications on national trends in performance of concomitant stress urinary incontinence (SUI) treatment with pelvic organ prolapse surgery over the past decade.

The objective of this study was to describe trends in the performance and type of concomitant SUI treatment from 2011 to 2019.
