Comparison of clinical outcomes using 'Elevate anterior' versus 'Perigee' system devices for the treatment of pelvic organ prolapse
BioMed Research International via PubMed Central
It has been estimated that a lifetime risk of undergoing primary surgery for pelvic organ prolapse or urine incontinence for a woman is about 11 percent. Despite the fact that anterior colporrhaphies have been the empirical treatment of POP for a long time, it carries a higher failure rate. Thus, surgery with mesh or graft materials has gained more and more popularity over the last decade due to the excellent short-term cure rate, especially in the anterior compartment.

Free uroflowmetry for voiding dysfunction measurement in women with pelvic organ prolapse and urinary incontinence in primary care
International Journal of Urology via Wiley
Voiding dysfunction might exist in women with POP, which can be determined by free uroflowmetry. Uroflowmetry in combination with PVR measurement could be used to evaluate the micturition process in women with POP in primary care. This evaluation could be useful in the diagnostic approach and decision-making process regarding referral of patients with POP and urinary symptoms from primary to secondary care. We aimed to investigate the prevalence of voiding dysfunction in women with POP in primary care and to explore potential predictors for the existence of voiding dysfunction.

FPMRS NEWSBRIEFS


Why the urologist is usually a man, but maybe not for long
NPR
If you need to see a urologist, the odds are very good that your doctor will be a man. Only about 8 percent of the practicing urologists are female, according to a poll from WebMD that includes gender distribution among medical specialties. The fact that there are few female urologists might not seem shocking — urologists spend a lot of time looking at penises. But they also treat a wide variety of urinary tract and kidney health problems in both men and women.

For Kiwi-based company ConfiTEX, it's high time to educate the public on the growing problem of incontinence, not only in Australia but also across the globe.
