Do different vaginal tapes need different suburethral incisions? The one-half rule
Neurourology and Urodynamics via Wiley
Despite a wide array of vaginal tapes to treat stress urinary incontinence, evidence suggesting that both patient characteristics and tape positioning influence outcomes, and differing tape insertion pathways (retropubic vs. transobturator), it remains unclear if the same incision location is effective for all tapes. The aim of the study was to compare outcomes using two different surgical incision locations when inserting a transobturator vaginal tape (TOT) to treat SUI.

Pelvic organ prolapse-associated cystitis
Current Bladder Dysfunction Reports via Europe PubMed Central
Pelvic organ prolapse and urinary tract infection are important problems, estimated to affect around 14 and 40 percent of women, respectively, at some point in their lives. Positive urine culture in the presence of symptoms is the cornerstone of diagnosis of UTI and should be performed along with ultrasound assessment of postvoid residual in all women presenting with POP and UTI. PVR over 30mL is an independent risk factor for UTI, although no specific association with POP and UTI has been demonstrated.

Pelvic floor biometry and pelvic organ mobility in East Asian and Caucasian nulliparae
Ultrasound in Obstetrics & Gynecology via PubMed
Offline analysis of the 3-D/4-D ultrasound volume data of two groups of Caucasian and East Asian pregnant nulliparous women was performed. Volume acquisition had been performed using the same method in the late third trimester in the context of two prospective observational studies with identical entry criteria. Pelvic organ descent and levator hiatal dimensions were assessed using volumes acquired on Valsalva; pubovisceral muscle thickness in volumes obtained on pelvic floor muscle contraction.

Questionnaires in the assessment of sexual function in women with urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse
Actas Urológicas Españolas via PubMed
Integrating sexual health in clinical practice is important. In women with pelvic floor disorders, the evaluation of the anatomical defects, lower urinary tract function and the anorectal function often receives more attention than the sexual function.

US toll from incontinence
The Journal of the American Medical Association
Incontinence affects about half of U.S. older adults who don't live in a residential care facility or nursing home, according to a recent report. The investigators used data from the National Center for Health Statistics and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services to estimate incontinence rates among adults aged 65 years or older. Because the definition of incontinence varies in different data sets, the report doesn’t provide an overall national estimate of incontinence.

The U.K. researchers found significant associations between a variation in the gene coding for beta 3 adrenoreceptor and overactive bladder, and a variation in the gene coding for collagen type 3 alpha 1 and prolapse.
