Prevalence and Risk Factors of Fecal Incontinence in Women Undergoing Stress Incontinence Surgery

ABSTRACT

Introduction and Objectives: Fecal incontinence (FI) is a socially isolating disorder with a prevalence of 6-24% in women with urinary incontinence. The objective of this cross-sectional study is to evaluate the prevalence of FI subtypes (liquid and both liquid and solid stool loss) in women with stress predominant urinary incontinence (UI) and to determine which potential factors (sociodemographic, health status, history, and severity) are associated with FI.

Does Self Reported Pad Use Following Pubovaginal Sling Surgery Accurately Reflect Patient Quality of Life?

ABSTRACT

Introduction: Pad use per day is a controversial endpoint for measuring urinary incontinence severity. Our objective was to determine if pad use could be used as a proxy measurement assessing patient quality of life after pubovaginal sling surgery (PVS).

Management of Female Urogenital Fistulae in Tertiary Care Hospital in Pakistan

ABSTRACT

Introduction and Objectives: Urogenital fistulae in females, when acquired after surgery or obstetric trauma, are associated with significant morbidity and dreadful social and psychological consequences. Successful management of these fistulae demands a high level of skills as well as adherence to basic surgical principles. We review the management of urogenital fistulae at Shifa International Hospital, Islamabad, Pakistan.

Using the Intersitital Cystitis New Diagnostic Criteria in Daily Practice: About 156 Patients

 

Objectives

To describe the characteristic of patients with interstitial cystitis and to determine what proportion of those patients met the ESSIC 2005 (European Society for the Study of IC/PBS (interstitial cystitis/painful bladder syndrome)) definition and how those who met the definition differed from those who did not.

Urodynamic Results of Acute Urinary Retention after Trial without Catheter

 

Purpose

Acute urinary retention (AUR) is a serious complication of male with lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS).

Does Urethral Function Affect Urodynamic Voiding Parameters in Women with Prolapse?

ABSTRACT

Introduction: We hypothesized that women with pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and overt stress urinary incontinence (SUI) would demonstrate less obstruction and retention because of the “release valve” effect of a less competent urethra. To evaluate this, we conducted a prospective supplementary study to the Colpopexy And Urinary Reduction Efforts (CARE) study. We compared voiding parameters and symptoms in 3 groups of women with POP: 1) women with no symptoms of SUI and no urodynamic stress incontinence (USI) during prolapse reduction , 2) women with no SUI symptoms but evidence of USI on reduction testing (occult USI) and 3) women with SUI symptoms (overt SUI).

The Correlation of Voiding Variables Between Non-Instrumented Uroflowmetery and Pressure-Flow Studies in Women with Pelvic Organ Prolapse

ABSTRACT

Introduction: To better understand the correlation between non-instrumented uroflowmetry (NIF) and pressure-flow studies (PFS) in women with pelvic organ prolapse (POP), we conducted a prospective supplementary study to the Colpopexy And Urinary Reduction Efforts (CARE) study.

Also to carry out the first stage in the development of a quality of life (QoL) instrument for measuring the impact of absorbent product use on users' lives.

Indications for Anti-Incontinence Procedures in Women with Severe Anterior Prolapse

ABSTRACT

Introduction and Objectives: The aims of the present study were to determine the indications for anti-incontinence surgery and evaluate the efficacy of different methods (combination of anterior colporraphy with TVT, vaginal wall sling (VWS), Raz needle suspension) in preventing postoperative stress urinary incontinence (SUI) in women undergoing surgery for severe urogenital prolapse.

Lower Urinary Tract Symptoms (LUTS), Symptom Overlap, Psychosocial Impact, and Cardiovascular Disease in Men: Findings from the Boston Area Community Health Survey (BACH)

 ABSTRACT

Introduction and Objectives: Cluster analysis is a statistical method for categorizing groups of individuals with similar properties or characteristics. This method is useful for examining the relationship between complex urological problems and other health conditions or lifestyle factors. The method has previously been shown to differentiate men with mixed patterns of voiding and storage symptoms in a large Canadian sample [1]. Assessing symptom co-occurrence can increase understanding of the disease etiology and has patient management implications. We used this method to classify men with storage, voiding, and post-voiding symptoms in the Boston Area Community Health (BACH) Survey [2].

Correlation of Q-Tip Values and Point Aa in Stress Incontinent Women

Hypothesis/Aims of Study

To determine the relationship between POP-Q point Aa and maximum urethral straining angle (Q-tip strain) and if the relationship is affected by pelvic organ prolapse in a cohort of women with stress predominant urinary incontinence.

New Approach of Placing Polypropylene Mesh for Surgical Correction of Stress Urinary Incontinence and Severe Cyctocele with Uterine Preservation

ABSTRACT

Introduction: We hypothesized that women with pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and overt stress urinary incontinence (SUI) would demonstrate less obstruction and retention because of the “release valve” effect of a less competent urethra. To evaluate this, we conducted a prospective supplementary study to the Colpopexy And Urinary Reduction Efforts (CARE) study. We compared voiding parameters and symptoms in 3 groups of women with POP: 1) women with no symptoms of SUI and no urodynamic stress incontinence (USI) during prolapse reduction, 2) women with no SUI symptoms but evidence of USI on reduction testing (occult USI), and 3) women with SUI symptoms (overt SUI).

Interrater Reliability of Pressure Flow Study Interpretation in the SISTEr Trial

ABSTRACT

Introduction and Objectives: It is generally recognized that OAB symptoms significantly affect patient’s quality of life and spread their negative impact to all aspects of human life: social, family, professional and sexual relationship. Therefore, assessment of patient’s quality of life is one of the main aspects in examination OAB patient. During last few years a lot of studies were dedicated to this subject but unfortunately their results are contradictory. There is no universally accepted conception about which of OAB symptoms affect more patient’s quality of life and characteristics of impairment patient’s quality of life according to gender and age. To clarify these questions was primary goal of our research.

Transurethral Injection of Bulking Agent for the Treatment of Recurrent or Persistent Female Stress Urinary Incontinence after Mid-Urethral Sling

ABSTRACT

Introduction and Objective

Although mid-urethral sling (MUS) with synthetic materials is associated with high success rates in female stress urinary incontinence (SUI), its widespread use has led to a group of patients with failures, increasing the need for an appropriate salvage procedure. Current options for managing failed MUS are transurethral injection of bulking agent, pubovaginal sling, or repeat MUS. Transurethral injection (TUI) of bulking agent may be appealing in patients in whom was failed the MUS procedure for its minimal invasiveness. In this study we evaluated the efficacy of TUI of bulking agent for the treatment of recurrent or persistent SUI after MUS.
