As 2014 comes to a close, AUGS would like to wish its members, partners and other industry professionals a safe and happy holiday season. As we reflect on the past year for the industry, we would like to provide the readers of FPMRS News a look at the most accessed articles from the year. Our regular publication will resume Friday, Jan. 9.

A meta-analysis of the performance of retropubic midurethral slings vs. transobturator midurethral slings
The Journal of Urology
From Oct. 10: A systematic literature review was performed using Medline limited to randomized controlled trials with a minimum follow-up of one year and type 1 grafts. Statistical analyses were performed using StatsDirect Version 2.7.9.

Single-incision sling operations for urinary incontinence in women
Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews via PubMed
From June 6: Urinary incontinence has been shown to affect up to 50 percent of women. Studies in the United States have shown that up to 80 percent of these women have an element of stress urinary incontinence. Colposuspension and now mid-urethral slings have been shown to be effective in treating patients with stress incontinence. However, associated adverse events include bladder and bowel injury, groin pain and haematoma formation.

Differences in recurrent prolapse at 1 year after total vs. supracervical hysterectomy and robotic sacrocolpopexy
International Urogynecology Journal via Springer
From Nov. 7: Optimal management of the cervix at the time of hysterectomy and sacrocolpopexy for primary uterovaginal prolapse is unknown. Our hypothesis was that recurrent prolapse at one year would be more likely after a supracervical robotic hysterectomy compared with a total robotic hysterectomy at the time of robotic sacrocolpopexy for uterovaginal prolapse.

Do we protect the pelvic floor with non-elective cesarean? A study of 3-D/4-D pelvic floor ultrasound immediately after delivery
Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology Research via Wiley
From March 21: Vaginal delivery is frequently cited as an important risk factor for pelvic organ prolapse. Birthweights, mode of delivery and length of the second stage of labor have been shown to be additional risk factors. Controversies regarding the potential protective effect of cesarean delivery persist. Pregnancy itself causes pathological changes to the pelvic floor.Incomplete recovery in anatomy and function may follow macroscopic trauma to the pelvic floor or pregnancy itself can lead to connective tissue remodeling and disruption of the normal pelvic floor function.

Do different vaginal tapes need different suburethral incisions? The one-half rule
Neurourology and Urodynamics via Wiley
From Sept 5: 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.

New incontinence data could give Ipsen's Dysport a path to lucrative urology use
FiercePharma
From March 21: Ipsen is sporting some new data for its Botox competitor. The French drugmaker announced "positive results" in a Phase II trial of Dysport in patients with urinary incontinence. That could put Ipsen's drug in line for more head-to-head competition with Allergan's Botox, which has successfully expanded into several medical uses.

Effectiveness and complication rates of tension-free vaginal tape, transobturator tape, and tension-free vaginal tape-obturator in the treatment of female stress urinary incontinence
Saudi Medical Journal via PubMed
From March 28: The study was conducted to evaluate the effectiveness and complications of tension-free vaginal tape (TVT), transobturator tape (TOT), and tension-free vaginal tape-obturator (TVT-O) in a medium- to long-term follow up.

Should prophylactic anti-incontinence procedures be performed at the time of prolapse repair? Systematic review
International Urogynecology Journal via PubMed
From Oct. 31: Women with high-grade pelvic organ prolapse are considered at risk of developing postoperative stress urinary incontinence once the prolapse has been repaired. The probable explanation for patients remaining subjectively continent is that POP can cause urethral kinking or compression. We hypothesized that performing prophylactic anti-incontinence procedures during surgical POP correction in women with no symptoms for urinary incontinence may prevent SUI postoperatively.

Laparoscopic uterosacral ligament suspension and sacral colpopexy: Results and complications
Urology via PubMed
From May 16: We describe our techniques, outcomes, and complications with laparoscopic procedures for correcting pelvic organ prolapse. We hypothesized that laparoscopic abdominal sacrocolpopexy gives better anatomic results than laparoscopic uterosacral ligament suspension, without increased complications.

A new surgery for recurrent or persist stress urinary incontinence in females after primary mid-urethral slings
International Journal of Clinical and Experimental Medicine via PubMed
From March 14: In this study, researchers sought to retrospectively evaluate the efficacy of a new complementary mid-urethral sling surgery (Tong's hammock anterior, THA) in treatment of recurrent or persist stress urinary incontinence (SUI) in females after primary synthetic mid-urethral slings (MUSs). THA was performed in 27 females with recurrent or persist SUI after primary MUSs from June 2005 and July 2010.
