More than half of women would prefer uterine sparing procedures for pelvic organ prolapse if the outcomes were the same. A new study, presented at the 2019 American Urogynecologic Society and International Urogynecological Association Joint Scientific Meeting, compares the cost effectiveness of hysterectomy with hysteropexy.
Even after sacrocolpopexy, prolapse can recur. New research points to a genital hiatus size of 4 cm or more as a risk for recurrence and identifies posterior repair as a protective measure.
Concurrent sacrocolpopexy and posterior repair may improve outcomes in women with asymptomatic rectoceles, according to a recent study. Cecile Ferrando, MD, MPH, explains.
Midurethral slings are the current gold standard of treatment for stress urinary incontinence. Given the recent FDA recall of transvaginal mesh in pelvic organ prolapse repair, there is concern that MUS may be next. A new study examines the effectiveness of treatment options.
