Treatment of urinary incontinence in overweight women by a multidisciplinary lifestyle intervention
ConclusionDespite a limited mean weight loss of 3.6 kg, participants reported a significant decrease in the symptoms and the burden of UI. Using PFMT as an integrated part of the intervention might have contributed to the improvements and could be subject to future research.
ABSTRACT To review the occurrence of pelvic, anorectal and urinary symptoms according to the nutritional status of adultwomen. Methods This is a cross-sectional study with 54 women, aged 18 to 35 years, divided into normal weight (

Conclusions Patients in the class 3 obesity group who are treated with an MUS are 2 times as likely to fail when compared with those in the normal-weight category on long-term follow-up with similar low complication rates.
AbstractWe aimed to make a meta-analysis regarding the effect of bariatric surgery on female sexual function. PubMed, EMBASE, and CENTRAL were searched from database inception through August 2019. Articles were eligible for inclusion if they examined the effect of bariatric surgery on obese women ’s sexual function assessed by the Female Sexual Functioning Index (FSFI) or/and the Pelvic Organ Prolapse/Urinary Incontinence Sexual Questionnaire (PISQ-12). Twenty articles were included into meta-analysis. Bariatric surgery was associated with significant increase in the total FSFI score. When parameters included in the ...
Conclusion: Further studies are necessary to observe the regulation of irisin concentration and explain mechanisms underlying these effects. PMID: 31531365 [PubMed - in process]
CONCLUSION: Preoperative SUI resolved in nearly a third of women after prolapse surgery without a concomitant incontinence procedure. In a population typically offered a concomitant MUS procedure at the time of prolapse repair, a staged approach may result in nearly two-thirds fewer patients undergoing MUS procedures. This information may be helpful during preoperative shared decision making. PMID: 31503149 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSION: The outcome achieved using this novel approach was successful in treating moderate to severe IAD and ITD in these cases.
Discussion Bardet-Biedl syndrome (BBS) is a rare disorder. It is usually considered an autosomal recessive disorder but there is significant intra-familial variability. There are multiple genes (~20 currently) involved and it is believed that the phenotypic variability is due to “…differences in the total mutational load across different BBS associated genes….” It is a ciliopathy where mutation changes in proteins in the cilias causes problems in the cilia’s functioning particularly signaling. Cilia are important in signaling to maintain tissue and cellular homeostasis. Obviously screening o...
(Abstracted from Am J Obstet Gynecol 2019;220:371.e1–371.e9) The prevalence of obesity during the past 2 decades in England has risen by approximately 40% and is continuing to rise as it has in other developed countries. There is a well-recognized association between stress urinary incontinence (SUI) and increasing body mass index (BMI).
