Anatomical position of 4 different transobturator mesh implants for female anterior prolapse repair
Geburtshilfe Frauenheilkd via Georg Thieme Verlag KG
Polypropylene mesh implants are frequently used for pelvic floor reconstruction in women. Yet they vary in size and fixation. The purpose of this study is to compare four mesh products with regard to their anatomical positioning and functionality within the pelvic floor, to determine whether each mesh fits equally well in a female cadaver.

Does prior vaginal prolapse surgery affect synthetic mesh erosion rates?
Obstetrics & Gynecology via PubMed
Even though the use of mesh has reduced the recurrence of prolapse, 10 percent of women will have a mesh complication, of which, 70 percent will require surgical revision. We investigated whether prior vaginal prolapse surgery affects synthetic mesh erosion rates.

Recurrent pelvic organ prolapse following traditional vaginal hysterectomy with or without colporrhaphy in an Irish population
Ulster Medical Journal via PubMed Central
elvic organ prolapse (POP) is a highly prevalent condition affecting about 50 percent of parous women1. There is a lifetime risk of 11.9 percent of undergoing an operation for its surgical correction1. Vaginal hysterectomy with or without colporrhaphy is the most common primary operation performed for POP, which is claimed to have a long-term recurrence rate of 29 - 30 percent.

Urinary bacteria in adult women with urgency urinary incontinence
International Urogynecology Journal via Springer
This study's aims were to detect and quantify bacterial DNA in the urine of randomized trial participants about to undergo treatment for urinary urgency incontinence without clinical evidence of urinary tract infection and to determine if the presence of bacterial DNA in baseline urine relates to either baseline urinary symptoms or UTI risk after urinary tract instrumentation.

Stress urinary incontinence: Usefulness of perineal ultrasound
La radiologia medica via Springer
o evaluate whether these indices may be determinants of success in prosthetic surgery for stress urinary incontinence, we conducted a retrospective study of patients treated with tension-free vaginal tape-obturator surgery and assessed, by measuring the pubo-urethral distance and angle after TVT-O, whether there was any quantitative difference between the mean values measured in the group of cured patients and uncured patients.

Clinical phenotype strongly validates class membership in staging chronic pelvic pain
Obstetrics & Gynecology via PubMed
An easily implemented, clinically applicable staging system for chronic pelvic pain remains elusive but extremely useful. The Patient Reported Outcome Measures Information System is a multidimensional, National Institutes of Health-supported method for assessment, independent of diagnosis. Previous work has demonstrated distinct clinical phenotypes in chronic pelvic pain based on latent class modeling of a semiquantitative physical examination.

FDA wants high-risk label for transvaginal mesh
MedPage Today
The FDA has proposed reclassification of surgical mesh for transvaginal repair of pelvic organ prolapse as a "high-risk device," a designation that mandates an FDA review of safety and effectiveness prior to considering approval. The agency also wants to reclassify certain instruments used to perform POP repair as "intermediate-risk devices," as opposed to the current low-risk designation.

Long-term durability of midurethral slings under scrutiny
News-Medical.net
Long-term follow-up of women treated with midurethral slings for stress urinary incontinence indicates that continence rates stabilise earlier with use of tension-free vaginal tape than with transobturator tape. This difference should be highlighted when counselling women about anticipated outcomes, say the researchers, who also observe that adverse events typically occurred within the first 24 months.
