Stress urinary incontinence is a common problem affecting women's quality of life. The retropubic mid-urethral sling accounts for the majority of surgical interventions for stress incontinence. Complications of the procedure are rare.
The aim of this study is to systematically compare rates of erosion and chronic pain after mesh insertion for pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and stress urinary incontinence (SUI) surgery.
A systematic electronic search was performed on studies that evaluated the incidence of erosion and chronic pain after mesh insertion for POP or SUI.
To present a modified technique in artificial urinary sphincter (AUS) placement that is associated with low rates of erosion and infection in a high-risk population.
After IRB approval, we identified patients who underwent primary AUS placement using the modified technique between January 2007 and November 2015.
To compare long term outcomes and erosion rates of 3.5 cm artificial urinary sphincter (AUS) cuffs versus larger cuffs among men with stress urinary incontinence (SUI), with and without a history of pelvic radiation.
To report the prevalence of low serum testosterone (LST) in men undergoing AUS placement at a single high-volume institution METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed all men undergoing AUS procedures by a single surgeon from January 2015 to January 2018 to identify men with pretreatment total serum testosterone levels.
Mesh was a promising, minimally invasive, and 'gold standard' treatment for urinary stress incontinence. Time has shown that complications from these devices can happen early, or even several years, after mesh placement and can be catastrophic.
To evaluate the impact of diabetes and obesity on artificial urinary sphincter (AUS) outcomes.
From 1987-2011, men with available diabetes and body mass index (BMI) information (568 of 954) undergoing primary AUS placement at our institution were evaluated.
To evaluate the long-term cure and complication rates of the canal transobturator tape (TOT) procedure for stress urinary incontinence (SUI) in females and assess how to reduce mesh erosion in TOT surgery.
Patients undergoing artificial urinary sphincter (AUS) placement often have complex medical and surgical histories, such as radical prostatectomy, endoscopic treatment of urethral strictures, previous AUS placement, and prior open urethral surgery.
