Lower Urinary Tract Symptoms
Authors aimed to evaluate the effect of transvaginal mesh surgery on overactive bladder symptoms in women with pelvic organ prolapse and to identify predictive factors for persistence of a preoperative overactive bladder after surgery. They retrospectively evaluated 102 patients who underwent transvaginal mesh surgery. All patients had stage 2 or greater pelvic organ prolapse accompanied by cystocele.

This study aimed to present the evaluation, diagnoses, and surgical management of symptomatic periurethral masses of women at an academic institution. Fifty-nine women (mean age, 46 years; range, 22–73 years) were evaluated during the study period. Final pathology revealed 38 (64%) urethral diverticula and 21 (36%) from other benign etiologies.
Studies have shown that clinicians' assessments of outcomes that matter often differ significantly from outcomes reported by patients. A considerable disconnect can occur between what the observer deems important versus what the patient considers important in terms of symptom management and the balance between relief and quality of life.
Researchers developed an evidence-based 8-week behavioral mHealth program, MyHealtheBladder, with input from women veterans, behavioral medicine and health education experts, and clinical providers treating UI in the VA system. The program was story-based and included pelvic floor muscle exercises, bladder control strategies, fluid management, risk factor reduction, and self-monitoring. Participants were women veterans seeking outpatient treatment for UI occurring at least twice weekly.
The lifetime risk of surgery for pelvic organ prolapse (POP) in the general female population was 19%. About 40–50% of women with POP report urinary incontinence before surgeries. In previously continent women, de novo stress urinary incontinence (SUI) may occur in approximately a quarter of those who receive pelvic reconstruction surgeries. If we can selectively perform concomitant anti-incontinence surgery only for women high risk of de novo SUI, we can provide a treatment strategy with high efficacy, high satisfaction and reasonable cost.
