Pelvic floor symptoms and bone mineral density in women undergoing osteoporosis evaluation.
Our aim was to characterize pelvic floor symptoms in postmenopausal women who had undergone osteoporosis evaluation and examine their association with bone mineral density (BMD). Pelvic floor symptom questionnaires were mailed to 4,026 women. Multivariate logistic regression models controlling for a...
Post-reduction stress urinary incontinence rates in posterior versus anterior pelvic organ prolapse: a secondary analysis.
We evaluated the prevalence and risk factors of post-reduction SUI between the two groups. Comparing posterior (n = 45) and anterior (n = 169) prolapse groups, we identified similar rates of post-reduction SUI (posterior: 6/45, 13.3 %; anterior:18/169, 10.7 %; p = 0.52) and SUI without reduction (po...
Are bony pelvis dimensions associated with levator ani defects? A case-control study.
Bony pelvis dimensions have been shown to differ in women with and without pelvic floor dysfunction. The goal of this study was to determine whether bony pelvis dimensions are different when comparing women with severe bilateral levator ani defects (LAD) with those with normal muscles. This is a sec...
Botulinum toxin for conditions of the female pelvis.
Botulinum toxin has recently been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of urinary incontinence associated with neurogenic detrusor overactivity. However, it has also been used off-label for a multitude of other conditions in the female pelvis, including urological, gy...
Silently waiting to heal: experiences among women living with urinary incontinence in northwest Ethiopia.
The aim of this study was to gain in-depth knowledge of women suffering from urinary incontinence (UI) in rural and semiurban settings in Ethiopia. A qualitative study based on semistructured in-depth interviews with 26 informants, 18 of whom were women experiencing the symptom of urinary leakage. T...
The vaginally assisted laparoscopic sacrocolpopexy: a pilot study.
We assessed the efficacy and safety of an operative technique, the vaginally assisted laparoscopic sacrocolpopexy (VALS), for the treatment of women with severe uterovaginal prolapse (UVP). A prospective pilot study of women with severe UVP, who underwent VALS, was carried out. Preoperatively, POP w...
Surgical outcomes of anterior trans-obturator mesh and vaginal sacrospinous ligament fixation for severe pelvic organ prolapse in overweight...
The aim of this study is to compare the outcomes of patients who underwent surgical repair of advanced pelvic organ prolapse amongst with normal-weight, overweight and obese Asian women. Vaginal sacrospinous ligament fixation with anterior mesh repair as primary surgery was performed on 200 patients...
Association of bladder pain syndrome/interstitial cystitis with urinary calculus: a nationwide population-based study.
We used conditional logistic regression analysis to compute the odds ratio (OR) and its corresponding 95 % confidence interval (CI) for having been previously diagnosed with UC between cases and controls. There was a significant difference in the prevalence of prior UC between cases and controls (8....
IUGA-ICS terminology and standardization documents: maximal use offers maximum patient and academic benefit.
Female obstruction after incontinence surgery may present different urodynamic patterns.
We restricted our analysis to women who acquired voiding disturbances after being submitted to stress urinary incontinence (SUI) surgery. A total of 302 women developed obstructive symptoms or voiding difficulties after SUI operations: 176 cases had had Kelly-Kennedy operations (58.2 %), 50 had had...
